Hmmm... Ron's getting philosophical. Great chapter.

I like this story, the changing perspectives as a means to take the story along are great, and this is the best chapter yet. I don't know why, but this has just about the right feeling about it.

This was such a good chapter. It really made me think the way Hermione was thinking about how Ginny worked her way backwards into Harry's identity. Very mature writing. And I like the way Ron was trying to make out HG's relationship. Good chapter.

*sits in chair, ready to burst* BAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've had the occasional smirk in the last few chapters, but ahh, what a respite this piece was. It was the, what, second line? and I was already giggling - "I dunno, what do you call conversation that isn't small talk? Big talk? That doesn't seem right but you get the idea... " Yup, I get the idea; this was a continually fresh piece and eeek! the dialogue was fantastic. Just when Ron seems, well, like Ron, he pulls out this deep and honest piece about love. Aww. But really, the change in tone was great and I just feel so calm now. (Which is great, 'cause I'm off to watch Desperate Housewives! )

Oh this one was shorter but oh so good. I love Ron.
particularly enjoyed "Maybe it slowly came upon you...maybe it quietly, imperceptibly changed your mind, like an old friend who knew you better than you knew yourself. Maybe it was clever like Hermione."

Speechless... best out of the whole story, so far! Only one question is sitting in my head waiting to be answered. After the last wait, I figured it would be easier to just ask when the next chapter was coming instead of wasting time going on the internet just to see if you've updated.
So when do you think the next chapter will be here, because this is mind boggling and extremely good writing!

Once again, you have given us some extraordinary writing. It really is beautiful. But I do have some feedback about this chapter because it was not at all what I expected, and so it has left me wanting a little. I've been reflecting on it for several days now and just reread it to see if my perceptions were justified - I'm not sure they are, but you did ask for feedback... It feels to me a bit short, not in length but in content. I think I can tell you wrote it in a night (though, I am very impressed your writing is so completely formed and beautifully crafted after only one night's work). This chapter seems to be more about the grand concept of love than either Ginny or Ron. I would have expected the Ginny-Ron relationship to be perhaps the strongest of the Ginny-brother relationships, and that had me hoping that I would learn something more and new about both Ginny and Ron. (And perhaps more about the world you have been creating - where Percy is dead, etc) But Ron seems a bit too caught up in Hermione and the 'Ginny-with-Harry' person to be able to see Ginny for herself. If this is deliberate I would like it to be made more explicit, because it feels to me like Ron doesn't see Ginny as her own person anymore. Perhaps it's because there's no direct interaction between Ron and Ginny (the way there is between Ron and Harry, or Ron and Hermione) - it's like he's looking at Ginny through intermediaries and not seeing her for himself. I guess I hoped that Ron's point of view would get much closer to the real Ginny (not just the real Ginny-Harry relationship) than any of the other brothers - not in perception, necessarily, but in relating to her.
In itself, this is a beautiful and expressive piece and I really like it - moreso after the second read. It's just in the context of the whole story that I wish it gave me more. Congratulations on your great work, though, I will definitely keep an eager watch for the rest of it.

Wow, ythis is a really great story (I know, I'm a little slow on the uptake if you're into your thirteenth chapter and I'm just figuring that out). I enjoyed all of the different points of view, as well as the six galleons from Snape. You write with a lot of depth and wit, great job.

I was thrilled to see a new chapter. I'd almost forgotten how much I'd enjoyed this story. Can't wait to see more!

This is really quite awsome. I love stories about Ginny, and I really appreciate the insite into her life as told by her brothers. Well done, bravo, cudos and whatever else you need to get back to the computer and write some more!!!

i'm delighted there's an update. very in character of R&Her and their take on H&G. also very in character of Harry's thoughts on his relationship with Ginny :>

Finally! Again you make us wait for months, and again I say that it was worth it. I have always loved Ron, and I love how you describe his apparent thickness when it comes to emotions. But I believe that Ron is a bit more sohpisticated and clever than we give him credit for. Which is why I liked his conversation with Hermione, where he cleverly explains love off as "Magic". Priceless. Please keep it up. I'm guessing the next chapter has more to do with Harry... could we get some nice, teeth-rotting fluff in there? Please update soon!

Well, I'm waaaay to lazy to think of any synonyms so I'll just stick to 'great'.
The end note makes me so happy 'This is not the end', yay :D
So, I've been listening a lot to 'Laura Laurent' lately and it really is on great song! You've got to love Bright Eyes...
I'm feeling lazy today so I'm won't check my spelling and stuff, sorry if it's a bit swenglish (uhm, I'm from Sweden, but you get what I mean, right?).

i like it. Even though it makes me feel that there is more there, or maybe that there sould be more there, but i know that the rest will come. i love your writing style. i love how true and deep this story feels. i'd love more.
Reviewer: Cloz Anonymous Date: 2005.11.30 - 09:34AM Title: An Old Friend Through Quiet Ways
Forgot to say; Love your Ginny....so refreshing to have her not perfect yet still completely charming. She seems 16, but still more mature, just like the real Ginny would be. Also, love that you show how she is affected by being the 'apple of everyone's eyes!'
PLEASE update...as I am new to this fic, not sure about your updating speed.
Reviewer: Cloz Anonymous Date: 2005.11.30 - 09:29AM Title: An Old Friend Through Quiet Ways
Just read your story...whole thing. Kept having to stop because it was so good. I have never read a fic like it where Ginny's life is mapped out from the point of view of those she thinks don't understand her but really do...better than anyone. LOVE IT! I would love to see a Harry or Ginny point of view at the end, Hope you update quickly as it is utterly adictive. Great writing by the way...good mix of humour with all the serious facts.

I personally think that you don't need to change a single thing. That was so heartfelt and amazingly insightful! All I have to say is that you must be an incredibly deep person! Very beautiful and sweet!

oohhh I can't wait! who is next?? hmm? Harry maybe? I've already posted on fanfiction.net my pure enjoyment of this story, but when I came over here I had to read it again! I've spent hours today reading your story, it's that good! Like the poster above, I can't wait to read the next chapter but I kind of hate it to be over, there seems like so much more story to read about.
