At first I thought this chapter was moving a bit too quickly and only brushing over some fairly important events. Having finished it, though, I quite like the fast pacing. It kind of gives an almost-montage feel to it. I liked the combination of some serious issues (such as funerals, a trial etc), but also a bit of fluff.
I really like the moments between Harry and Ginny. It's good to see that they've still got some issues to deal with and can't just skip traight to happily ever after. A nice touch of realism!
I love the language you've used, and the finer details you've dropped in - it makes a big difference to the overall quality.
Nice story. Interesting twist, Harry being taken by a mob to make a speech. I would have like to have seen the speech, just to see how he got out of it. I like that you included Malfoy's trial as well. I don't think that's something that I've seen covered in other fanfics.
