Here's to the Death of My Heart by CrystalM    (Reviews - 3)

Companion to Torn Between Ice and Emeralds, this is a first-person account from Harry's perspective of Chapter 15: Behind Glassy Emeralds Lays a Broken Heart. You don't have to have read it to completely understand, but having a background story will make some things in this one-shot make more sense.

It's close to Christmas time, and Harry, Ron, and Hermione have been hunting Horcruxes since Dumbledore’s death. Through a glimpse into Voldemort’s mind, Harry finds out that Voldemort intends to pay Hogwarts a visit. The trio attempt to head him off, but while there, Harry anxiously arranges a meeting with Ginny by the lake in hopes of letting her know that she still owns his heart. He will soon find out that another has stolen her love in his absence.

Excerpt:
I stared deeply into her russet eyes, willing my Ginny to come back to me. I could see in the tears now rolling down her cheeks that there was something on the tip of her tongue, something that would ruin me.

“I love him, Harry.”

Torn Between Ice and Emeralds by CrystalM    (Reviews - 93)

COMPLETED! -- A broken-hearted Ginny Weasley lets go of Harry Potter to let him fight the good fight and starts her sixth year at Hogwarts. Draco Malfoy follows Snape back to Death Eater headquarters after Dumbledore's death to even more danger than he had just left, realising too late that he has made his greatest mistake yet. Is anyone likely to forgive him? Finding himself a refugee within the walls he had conspired against, he witnesses a scene that alters his perception of a concept he had previously found to be a waste of time: Love. This change allows him to grow away from the model Death Eater his father had been sculpting him into in an effort to find out what he really believes in with the help of his new friendship found in the youngest Weasley. Meanwhile, Ginny struggles with her harboured feelings for the man destined to save the Wizarding world, unknowingly losing her affections with every passing day to his childhood enemy.
