Gah, this is so very sad and poignant. Originally, I was upset that Ginny was playing Quidditch, but she's a stubborn girl and I can't fault her one of her qualities that I also respect.
“I'm... I'm pregnant.”
Madam Pomfrey tucked her wand away slowly, straightened Ginny's bedsheets, wrote a few notes on her clipboard, and then finally picked up Ginny's hand, holding it tightly between hers. Her face was drawn and weary. “No love. Not anymore. I'm so sorry.”
This part was so gutting and yet so real. I really felt like I was in the moment with Ginny and Pomfrey.
The part with Ginny's burying her unnamed unborn child is really what did me in, though. And while the ending was sad, there was a small measure of hope shared in their mutual grief.
Well done, m'dear.
Author's Response: yes, ginny is super stubborn. in our rpg i've tried to keep her true to character.
thanks so much for reviewing. it was hard to write, really. i've put in a few good years with her character and this is the worst thing she's gone through. *sniffles*
At first, I thought Ginny was really, really stupid. She should have known better than to play Quidditch while pregnant. But as I kept reading, it really was just heart-breaking. The fact she buried it really got me.
I like that this isn't a heavily romantic piece. By that, I mean there are no grand declarations or whatever. It was simple and honest, and that's what makes it so touching. I loved it.
Author's Response: ginny WAS really really stupid. yes, she knew better but in our rpg she is so stubborn & determined to do everything her way, she did. geh! LOL
i don't think there's too much romantic to be found in teen pregnancy, and especially not hers. thank you for reading & reviewing though!
This was beautifully written I adored it, and so so sad. I was wondering are readers allowed at your rpg? I love reading them although I don't play in them anymore.
Author's Response: thank you so much. normally we don't, but if you are interested, i can check with our mod. everything is split between 2 live journal accounts. contact me through the contacts page if you would like to :D
Great story, sad but great.
Author's Response: thank you :D
Well then your mission was accomplished! :D It is quite beautiful.
Author's Response: thank you ma'am! i love chatting with you this way!
love this sweet sad story!!!!
Author's Response: thank you so much!
That was a very sad, heart-wrenching story. This a one shot, so not expexcting a continuation. But it doesn't need one really.
He shook his head. “I just want to sit here with you.” - This was perfect way to end it. This short statement said everything. Great job!Loved it!
Author's Response: yeah, there is no sequel to this (unless you want to know that in my RPG they are now married with 3 kids, an adopted child and ginny's prego although she's not aware of it yet) but thank you so much for reviewing. i liked being able to write this draco as someone who was still himself (i thought) but knew he needed Ginny.
That was sad and beautiful..."I just want to sit here with you."
Is this going to be a one-shot or are you going to continue it?? Why is Draco dating Lavender Brown? I hope you continue this . . .
Author's Response: oh no, this is done. that's all there is too it! lol i'm glad you though it was beautiful though :) and thanks for reviewing. although, i will say, in my RPG (which inspired this) they're now married with 4 kids and 1 on the way!
That is so sad. I would love to know what happened next but the ending was good as it left me hopeful :)
Author's Response: well.... i'm not writing anymore of this but i could tell you that in my RPG (which is what inspired this) they're now married with 4 kids & 1 on the way.... LOL
So sad! It breaks my heart to know that she lost the baby and now when she thought she had lost him for good, they have each other again. Yay, to the sort of happy ending!
Author's Response: i am a big fan of "sort of happy endings" :) Thank you for the review!
This is so bittersweet and beautiful. Love it!
Author's Response: thank you :) those words are exactly what i was aiming for!
