Sometimes time flies by way too fast. At least, that was my thought when I noticed for how long I had neglected the Buried Gems. However, as you can see, I haven't forgotten about them.
The today's Buried Gem is a one-shot written in 2005 and nominated by Melindaleo with the following words: This is the Ginny who lives in my head. Fiery, spunky, but with a complete understanding of the bigger picture. She does what's right over what's easy, much like Harry does. I loved the glimpses of their shared humor, something I always noticed in canon, and I was so thrilled to read something after HBP that didn't have Ginny screeching at Harry. They're both trying to suppress their own feelings to do what's right, not make it harder on the other, but their feelings just won't be contained. It's just a feel good story.
The Buried Gem 08-2020 is Something Gold by Gowdie.
Summary: Ginny couldn't believe it. Here she was, walking down the aisle in this pale-gold, puffy-sleeved monstrosity, an absolute wreck of nerves at the idea of seeing him again for the first time, having no idea how to behave, and the git was laughing at her. If she had her wand she might hex him. Instead Ginny did the only thing she could, she rolled her eyes, blushed fiercely and started laughing with him.
