Gioia’s Rec:
I initially expected “Same Old Tricks” to be a typical post-DH HP/GW fic in that it would have the obligatory angst before reuniting Harry and Ginny, followed by a fluffy ending.  The story surprised me by showing a greater understanding of the characters and the post-war world.  What I particularly liked is the fact that it’s Ginny who has to grow up a bit here and address her feelings.  It struck me as realistic that Harry would be ready to do whatever it took to move on from the war, whereas Ginny might be a bit ticked over certain aspects about which he had little control.  Their respective feelings were very much in-keeping with their ages and with what they had endured.  Ultimately, the story’s ending is expected – there is a happy conclusion – but the road they travel gives us some keen insight into the main characters.

A Ron/Hermione pairing is mentioned peripherally.
