Oh, I loved this. The use of second person was just perfect here. It really emphasized both the distance Ginny feels from Draco and the very painful emotion that goes with it.

Most of this was absolutely tragic, especially Ginny and Harry's wedding, and the line, "Afterward you wonder if it was just to spite Draco that he asked. But you decide it doesn't matter because it was just to spite him that you answered," has to be my favourite. No dialogue, but we get so much of both Harry and Ginny in those two sentences.

And speaking of no dialogue, I thought that was a good choice. The lack of speech coupled with the second person really made this very powerful.

I'm really happy that the ending was lighter than the rest of this. Although the sad, angsty-ness of the first part of this was wonderfully written, the lighter ending was really very nice.

I thought this was beautifully written, very interesting, and I enjoyed it very much. ^^

I did get a bit confused about the Lily part, so I'm glad you cleared that up.

This was very interesting. I don't think I've really read anything in this style. I'm glad you gave it a happy ending. ^_^

I'm so happy that I gave this a try. I normally don't read sad DG and the summary seemed a bit sad, but I'm so, so happy that they got their happy ending in the end!!! And I'm really glad that you clarified Ginny wasn't a cheater, since that would've bothered me a bit. The narration was very nice and I like how the no-dialogue let us see DG develop and eventually come together over the years. :)

Nicey done!

I loved this. I can definitely see how the lyrics were your inspiration - I could actually feel the raw emotions when I read this piece. But what I loved more was how, instead of strictly sticking to the lyrics, you turned it into a piece that was yours.

The emotions you wrote were quieter, but no less passionate. It fits the pensive mood of the scene, and softened the transition between angst and happiness. The second-person PoV and present tense made it sound very realistic in conveying the ups and downs of Ginny's life as you write it.

I caught only one error - in the sentence "You feel like your flying", you probably mean "you're", but that's a relatively easy typo/honest mistake to make. We can't all be perfect. :P

There's so much more I could rant about (positive things, I mean!), but alas, my laziness will be my downfall. Just let it be known that I love this piece, and it reminded me why I love DG. Kudos to you for that! :)
