    The only I despise worse than a Super!Harry is a Super!Ginny, and sadly, this story is leaning towards the latter. Worse off, it has Hero!Ginny, which I loathe....

    But, if you enjoy this sort of stuff, then maybe the story is for you. It is well written and has several good features about it. If you can stand the pairing and the Gin-me alcoholic, then I guess I can understand why this is in the library.

    I lived in my mind but I lost my key.
    I like this okay BUT ITS SO DAMN LONG and the author is going for 60-80 chapters and its already above the 250k mark isnt it? Other wise yes super ginny isnt the greatest but as far as H/G fics go its above average. But right now its almost more of a Ginny fic and than a Harry Potter fic. Who is smarter? Ginny. Who is something or another? Ginny. But atleast Harry is stronger and a better fighter but thats all that Harry can claim over Ginny just about.

    After twelve years?!

    Now if Fayr Warning reappeared and updated Child of Mercy, we could have a party. With lots of nu metal and baggy pants.

    Anyway, I do recall I enjoyed that story for its atmosphere, but don't remember much beyond that. Will read and see if my taste was as fantastic back then as it's now. Expect a today's-standard review by the weekend or so.

    I'd never heard of this when it was being written, and it pre-dates me finding this site by at least a few years, and for a story this old it actually holds up pretty well so far as of chapter 32. It's kind of funny seeing the old posts and realizing just how bad the Ginny hate really was back then - there are far worse stories with her as the love interest that are probably much more popular.

    The OC professor is really pretty interesting, the canon characters are all pretty believable, and the setting is done well. My only problem so far is the shifts between POVs can be very blurry; I do concede that might be what the author is going for with the Harry/LV perspectives though. 3.5/5 for me so far, will rate here when I'm caught up.
