Good job. I hope you finish this story. The flow and plot as it stands, has worked out really well so far. I home this isn't abandoned completely. I hope to see an update in the future.

Damn pity to abandon this, I don't have a grammar badge, in fact I think they have a warrant for my arrest too, but this was a good premise that I would have waded through grammar, spellcheck and editing errors to read

I will say that I liked the story as you presented it. It did seem to border within the limits of the challenge (based on the challenge wording, the siblings would have heard about the bond already). I like the approach you took to it either way. It is a good basis for expanding the story and I like how you "outed" the bonding at the end of this chapter.

Judged for Challenge. The beginning was promising, with an interesting perspective, a more indirect plot and descriptions which had more show rather than tell. The incidents of Ginny's accidental Apparation and birthday gift were very nuanced and had some interesting layers. But Chapter 4 was a severe letdown as thousands of words are lifted direct from Philosopher's Stone. I would have much preferred you to continue the original work of the previous three chapters. The incidents covered may be the same, but it is important to tell the story in one's own voice, not J.K. Rowling's.

Of all the bonds in this challenge, your was the most nuanced and finely-developed. I liked how both Harry and Ginny acted their ages. Their confusion and embarrassment was sweet, and exactly as two children their ages would act. The last chapter was kind of a cliffy, I only half-expected it. I hope you continue the story.

A typical Weasley day...lol! I do agree with the other reviewer who said that the grammatical errors do make it harder to read.

Ah, the boot has finally dropped. I have to admit that it was dramatic. I continue to think this story is very well paced, but now I see that it is intended to be the first part of something bigger. I'm looking forward to finishing it. Thanks--Eric B.

This was clearly a transitional chapter. I was left a bit confused however. I'm beginning to wonder about the headaches they seem to be having, as well as the lack of progress in their developing an understanding of their magical bond. We still haven't seen it referenced in any conversation between the two, although we know how important it is. After all, it drew Dumbledore to the Alley. My curiosity is aroused.
Reviewer: Spenser Hemmingway Signed Date: 2012.11.22 - 07:54PM Title: The Burrow
The pace and direction of your story are good. The interaction with the rest of the family at the Burrow is allowing Harry to ease into his new situation with Ginny. You haven't even really explained to the reader what exactly has happened, but you're building up to it. We end up anticipating the next chapter even more. You did have a couple mechanical errors. You can't have two people doing dialogue in the same paragraph. You need to start a new one. Apart from that, you're doing a great job.

I liked this less dramatic initial encounter between the two. Naturally, the basis of the Challenge requires their powerful bonding, but your approach seemed to be more realistic. Your characterizations are good as well. I'm looking forward to the nex chapter.

Whoa! Didn't see that coming. HarryBond007 didn't play the married theme very much... but whoa... Ginny starts Hogwarts early. Cool.

Like many who have reviewed this story, I found the technical aspects of your writing (i.e. grammar) distractingly awful. It is usually impossible to follow a story with grammar this bad, but the story aspects of you writing are quite good! You have a good plot here, and I found myself enjoying the story despite any difficulties.

What a way to end the chapter! Quite the cliffhanger. This is certainly going to change things. It seems you quoted a great deal from the book. You should probably take care to cite the reference and indicate clearly which parts are directly from the book. Very interesting.
