Gioia’s Rec:
Three years after Hogwarts, Harry and Ginny attempt to get a few moments alone together while running an errand.  This captivating little peek at Harry and Ginny’s post-DH dating years serves as a lovely snapshot of their relationship.  I particularly love how awkward Harry still is around his adoring public.  St Margarets always does a phenomenal job depicting Ginny, too, including all her no-nonsense, pragmatic wit.  I’ve always loved how St Margarets’ Ginny is so unintimidated by Harry and refuses to angst when he doesn’t get her hints or instinctively know what she’s thinking.  But as beautifully canon-feeling as her characterizations are, what really sets this fic apart is what makes all of St Margarets fics so good: a believable, normal relationship.  The dynamic between Harry and Ginny feels delightfully natural and easy-going and makes the entire story feel relaxed and fun.
