Story Summary: Ginny is determined to be over Harry. When he confesses his feelings for her, she tries desperately to dismiss them as a passing infatuation, but how long can she hold out against fate? Originally written for the Summer Fun Challenge at SIYE– that’s why the setting is a little odd.
LauraSmora does a fantastic job at getting inside the mind of a young teenage girl; in this case, Ginny Weasley. With Ginny’s POV to guide us, LauraSmora sets up a sweet little “what-if” scenario, written post-OotP. The innocence of the romance is sweet and so perfectly in-character for both Harry and Ginny at that stage. And in retrospect, it’s eerily on-target. It was, indeed, during a summer visit that Harry began to realize he fancied Ginny. In this fic, the setting is adjusted slightly and takes place during a visit to the Grangers. But the concept is much the same as that JKR wrote.
