I'm so glad we didn't have to go through all the story to get to this part--I was worried that Harry wouldn't have Ginny's support and love when he needs it most. Honesty between partners is so important!
'I wasn't born just to take Voldemort down, was I?' -- interesting question; depending on how you view prophecies, one might just say, yes.
Very, very nice. Poor Ginny , holding all that in. I knew Harry would be supportive.
I love the way you played things out in this chapter. Harry's anger, the trio being offered jobs through Charlie, Bill and the twins, and finally having Ginny confess what had actually happened. Well done, sweetie!
Great chapter, I like the idea of Harry going into the Department of Mysteries (most intriguing job of the Harry Potter world...though I'd rather be a teacher at Hogwarts personally) and Harry has a whole new reason to fight. He handled the confession perfectly and, as the omnipotent and all powerful author, I have you to thank for that! Great job!
u have royally messed up the whole series with just this one story! everyone knew Harry would kill Voldemort before the 5th book was released. your writing skills are fantastic, but you must stick to the plot of the actual stories I am not!!! trying to be annoying, but i just get really annoyed when something thats obviouse is completely ignored. other than that, good story

3: Secrets Revealed (Author Response)
You think it's a given that it'll be Harry, and only Harry, who destroys Voldemort?
You think it's a given that Harry is the one referred to in the Prophecy, even though we now know from canon that Dumbledore is fallible?
I don't. But that's my own pet theory, which is why I wrote the story this way. There's nothing in the books that states outright that Harry is definitely going to destroy Voldemort all by his lonesome. We have a Prophecy that Dumbledore ASSUMES refers to Harry--and very well may--but it's all assumption at this point. TOO obvious, if you will; JKR isn't that obvious. She's far too clever for that. Overall, I think I'm sticking to the plot of the actual stories very well.
For what it's worth, this story was begun, and was fairly into it (chapter 7), before Order of the Phoenix came out, so there are differences from current canon, if not from the canon I had in hand when I did my initial plotting. But I do believe Ginny is going to be much more involved in the destruction of Voldemort than we can currently see.
