Today I present you a Buried Gem nominated by Pottermum. She recommended this story because it is beautifully written and brings up a topic that isn’t touched too often in fanfic, that what if Harry was impaired mentally after the battle. There are several where he is in a coma for days, weeks, months and years before waking, but not many where he will never again be a fully functional member of society.
Pottermum said she enjoyed the story mostly for the way Harry’s friends react around him. And of course, the Harry and Ginny moments.
The 3rd Buried Gem of the year 2019 is:
Teatime in the Garden by LadyTonks
Summary: It was almost teatime. Teatime was their favorite time. Ginny hoped that Hermione and Ron wouldn't stay long. She knew that they meant well, but they just didn't understand about Harry. Not many people did.
