Summary: After the war ends, Harry and the trio are thrown into a media frenzy that takes months for them to get out of. During this entire time, Ginny is waiting to hear from Harry about possibly restarting their relationship while trying to get George to join the living again. When he finally reappears at the Weasley home, he doesn’t seem to know how to handle her, and the disappears again for essentially Auror bootcamp. When he gets back, their relationship seems strained due to Dean Thomas’ reentrance into Ginny’s life and only comes to an understanding after Ginny is taken hostage by Greyback. Even though Harry warns Ginny about the power of the press, she decides to make their relationship public, right before she goes back to Hogwarts
Opinion: This story, while short, introduces the reader to the world right after the fall of Voldemort and also shows how brutal the press could be to the Golden Trio. Every person is struggling to some degree in this story, which makes sense for the time. Ginny and Harry do seem to have a much more strained relationship than I feel was necessary at the time, but Greyback taking Ginny seemed like the last push that they needed to rekindle it.
