Story Summary: Harry and Ginny are put to the ultimate relationship test: they wallpaper together.
The first fic in one of St Margarets’ cornerstone series, this post-OotP story does a lovely job of examining Harry’s mindset after the events in the Department of Mysteries. As Harry and Ginny wallpaper a room together, they talk about their worries, their experiences, their favorite colors, and whatever else comes to mind. Meaningless chit-chat leads to meaningful realizations as the foundation for a future relationship is laid. Written at a time when little was known about Ginny, much less what type of relationship she would have with Harry, the story winds up being prophetic in that it exhibits beautifully why Ginny became his best source of comfort.
