Status: Fantastic

Opinion: The first story setup the tone of the story immediately and showed the causes and influences that Ginny was undergoing. Harry’s turmoil over hurting Ginny and effectively losing the only family that he’s known was the perfect catalyst for him disappearing for so long. They story is completely based in canon, matching what the epilogue stated happened, but elaborating on the in-between years. The struggle that Ginny had with PTSD was understandable and lent itself to some very good character development. Overall, the story was well-laid out and the time lapse was well-handled. For the most part, you knew how long the jumps were and yet still only read the important parts.
