Harry's and Ginny's bantering is already top-notch. Maybe a bit early, but I don't mind because it sounds pretty natural. It's obvious Ginny has already set something in motion in Harry given the way he treats Ron, Neville&Susan and everyone else. Watching Ginny stand up to her brothers, which Book Harry never consciously noticed due to his ignorance, certainly helps a lot, lol.
I'd never thought I'd say it, but it's nice to take a closer look at the Hermione/Krum dynamics.
Great chapter!

Author's Response: When I started writing this story, I was worried about trying to write Harry/Ginny dialogue that matched their personalities, hinted at their potential chemistry, but didn't spin off into over-the-top fluff, so I'm thrilled that it feels natural to you. We didn't get much time or attention paid to Krum in canon, so it's been fun building out more of his characteristics as he gets to know Hermione and the others.

Fantastic chapter! You had me giggling like a hyena over Ginny buttering up Percy. She reminded me of the speech Umbridge gave at the beginning of the school year in OotP. And then...she takes on Ron! Oh, she has figured being a little sister out to a T! I also thought it nice that she felt free to dance with other boys and that Harry isn't the jealous type: he seemed to know that spending time with Ron would be the best use of his time while his date was out dancing and helping to give others a good evening. However, what I liked best was the tag-team effort of both Harry and Ginny to help Neville and Susan feel good enough about dancing together that they're starting to have a good time. This is turning out to be a great experience for Harry in particular as opposed to the Yule Ball in canon. Well done.

Author's Response: You noticed so many things that I tried to pour extra effort into, which makes me feel great as an author! I definitely want Ginny's humor and willingness to stand up for what she believes in to shine through in this story, and this chapter gave some opportunities to make good on that. I smiled while I was writing Harry and Ginny helping Neville and Susan, so I'm glad others enjoyed it, too!

Everyone dances better when they’re out of their own heads….kutgw

Author's Response: I agree! Harry's been much more of a "learn-by-doing" kinda student, so I figure it wouldn't be too challenging for him to get the hang of dancing with a bit of help.
