    Interlude by Biggrstaff Bunch

    Summary: “Still, if he could lock her up in a tower, he would. Even now. Though she’d probably die from some sort of tower-inflicted catastrophe, and it’d be all his fault just the same, and possibly there’d even be a prophecy…” Oneshot, 1,597 Words.

    Why You Should Care: It’s the first time Harry and Ginny speak to each other since the battle at Hogwarts, and the inner monologue is just so very Harry.  Ginny is also written well, which is something that is difficult to find.  In too many fics I find Ginny pushed into teetering over the edge of the Mary Sue-ism that JKR has left her perched next to, and it takes an author of some considerable discipline not to send her down that way but keep her walking that thin and often blurry line; Biggrstaff Bunch does an excellent job of keeping her real.  Harry, too, feels right.  I’ve read fics where Harry is still avoiding her, and those somehow don’t make sense after Harry’s duty has been done.  Here there is mutual respect for the role the other played, and Harry doesn’t cling to heroics after the time for them is passed.  Very nice.  A sense that these two people have grown up.

    Why You Might Not Care: All those folk that feel Harry/Ginny is a crock should probably go find a nice Ginny/Draco to read on some other site, least you pull out your hair.  Everyone else, have at it.

      I am not usually a fan of Harry/Ginny fics mainly because I’ve never seen Ginny as having much charisma…I know it’s odd, because Rowling says she’s head strong and talented. I suppose I always feel as though she is Lily: Redux—never really her own character.

      But! All my apathy towards Ginny aside, this was a lovely little add-on to Deathly Hallows, and I felt it was very accurate to how these characters would have let matters play out. Nice find.
