There is pride and there is love. Ginny always thought that the two couldn't exist together, but to be in love really means to have something to be proud of. Before she was always watching, searching for a perfection that was worth putting on to paper, but after the war ends and a strange run in with Narcissa Malfoy, she is forced to reevaluate everything around her. Life is messy, time is an impassive judge, and love changes all but that.

I might call this canon-ish, but really it's just AU. It pretty much disregards the major plot points involving Draco in the sixth and seventh books, though not the story entirely. It's a fluffy Hogwarts romance, though, so we shall call it artistic license.

Since 2008 (and yeah — I did need all four of those years) I haven't changed this story much, but I have tidied it up. That being said, if you catch any typos, grammar errors, etc please let me know!
