Very well done!  I rather like your characterization of Ginny, in particular.

Thanks.  I do adore Ginny.  Thanks for the email, as well.  We all missed that one!

Hi. I'm enjoying your missing moments a lot, its a treat when a new story from you pops up!  How about future moments and the weasley wedding or ron and hermione meet the Dursleys?  Do you think harry is going to be split up from ginny throughout the next book, or will JKR relent on harry's behalf?  always fun reading your stuff!

I think Ron and Hermione meeting the Dursleys is one of the things I want most to see in book 7, lol!  I'm eager with anticipation.  I want to stay away from that for now, however.  I think I'm going to let JKR handle that one.

I tend to believe Harry and Ginny will be apart for most of the story.  It's not what I'd choose, but it is how I see it.  I think we'll get some time at the wedding, and again at Christmas, and then definitely at the end.  My gut tells me GInny will return to Hogwarts while the trio won't, but she'll be a source for them there.  I do think at some point the action will return to Hogwarts since  a Horcrux is there.  Harry's greatest strength is love, so Ginny has to have role in the end.

That's how I'm seeing it, anyway.

That was fantastic.  I don't know how you managed to do it, but what got me the most was unconscious!Harry and the way that Ginny was looking at him out of the corner of her eye.  I almost cried - and that is saying something. 
I am enjoying your missing moments.  I believe that there is something begging to be written about Fleur and Bill staying back at the Burrow, while everyone else goes to Diagon Alley.  Remember them waving goodbye to everyone from the window?  Not sure if it is something that you would write - would love to hear Fleur having a go at all the Weasley family - maybe she would have some nicknames for them all.  And Bill would know how to shut her up!
Anyway, I have a silly smile on my face now, so off to bed for me.

Aww, thanks.  I always love unconscious Harry scenes, lol.  It was strange to write a H/G moment where Harry wasn't really even there!

I'm not a huge fan of Fleur (although I did love that she stood by Bill).  I thought she was the most horrible of houseguests.  I haven't started any other moments, although my thougths keep drifting to the idea of one over Christmas...

Beautifully done! I have actually had this floating in my head, too, but I couldn't get it down properly. I love this. It's just perfect.

I think that alot of us have mostly missing moments stuck after HBP.  This one was very nice.  'Not that Harry's not generally a bit dazed' comment gave me a good chuckle.  Thanks for the story :)

Thanks!  Harry can be a bit dazed, and I love seeing Ron and Harry rag on each other.  Although Harry/Ginny is my favorite ship, the canon frienship between Ron and Harry is one of my all-time favorites.

This is very good and confirms a number of points in my mood series. I should have written mood 3 by now, it basically deals with the same situation, but somehow I haven't managed yet.

     Hahahahaha - brilliant!

Very astute, very perceptive and very, very  - one of the better characterisations of our beloved red-headed, red-tempered heroine I've ever read, perchance not quite on par woth PoE and CotD but there you had longer time for fleshing her out. This felt VERY canon though and it gave some very good background for why Dean and Ginny fell apart (I remember Hermione saying "they've been rocky for ages" when she told Harry Ginny broke up with Dean) and as usual you make us other bumbling, fumbling authors wanna go and hide in the cupboard as our skill cannot possibly match yours. *sigh*

So when do you go professional?  You have to let me know as I'm sure I want to read what you written!  If not...   

     Perchance not, but I would be disappointed though. It's great to see that you muse keeps going and all updates from you are eagerly read and cherished! Thanks for writing and sharing this, it was and is much appreciated!

Thanks!  I'm so glad you enjoyed it, you're always so supportive and it feeds my self-confidence, lol!  The Ginny/Dean dynamic intrigues me as she seems to have stuck it out longer than she was happy.  I think maybe her attention was focused elsewhere ;)

I've seen some wonderful missing moment scenes, and I always enjoy reading them, so I'm glad you thought this one was up to par.  As for professional - well, that's the dream, isn't it?

Wonderful job as usual!  I definitely need these Missing Moments to keep me going till Book 7! The characterisation is great and the little H/G moment at the end was lovely. You have to think that Ginny would have noticed Harry's change in attitide toward her. It didn't seem all that subtle at times! And if you've had feelings for someone for a long time, you tend to take note of and store up even a smile, so full on jealous!Harry would probably be hard to ignore! Especially when he obviously couldn't have cared less about the pending Dean situation in OotP. *Sigh* Love HBP! And you write so well; I think you could slot these MMs into the book, and only the change in POV would give it away. Loved Score one for little sister;  I can totally relate!  And It wasn't as if she'd forced him to do it or used a love potion or anything stupid like that. Hee. Little dig at the annoying LovePotionWielding!Ginny theory?

No, I don't think his change was subtle at all, lol.  We read about Harry repeatedly getting hit with Bludgers during Quidditch practices.  WHEN have we ever known Harry to not pay attention during Quidditch?

I don't think it was that he didn't care about the pending Ginny/Dean in OotP, he did notice enough for us to "see" Ron's comment, but Harry was obviously grieving at the time.  He wasn't in the right frame of mind yet.

I'm glad you appreciated the love potion thing.  Honestly!  That is the MOST ridiculous thing I've ever seen, since we obviously SAW how a love potion really works.  Sigh.

I'd love to write some more of these missing moments, I'm having so much fun with them, but I need some inspiration on what!  I think I might need to re-read the book again and see where I can find a hole, lol.

Oh Melinda! Loved this one shot! What insight. I'm thinking you should write all the missing moments for JK. Makes a better read. I'm hoping you share some more missing moments with me... I mean us.

Excellent job, looking forward to reading more.

Nice!  I so enjoy the different missing moments that keep on popping up.  This one was something, indeed.  I like the way you described Ginny here, how her thoughts seemed to circle around Harry, and her growing irritation with Dean.  Having him put food on her plate was rather funny - there really is a limit to what is gentlemanly, and Dean seems to have passed that limit with a great margin.  He obviously doesn't know who Ginny really is - or doesn't appreciate it.

Well done!  (That's no big surprise, though).  Thanks for sharing.

Well, Hermione said that Ginny and Dean were rocky, and Ginny got upset about the arm at the portrait hole, so I wanted to explore that a bit.  I don't think Dean gets Ginny at all - even back at Christmas Harry thought he detected some tension.  If Harry noticed it - wow!  Imagine how heavy it must have been!

I love missing H/G moments like these! I really enjoyed this one too; it's really realistic. It's what I'd imagine her thoughts to be like too, that she doesn't have it figured out yet & is confused. Please write more!

Thanks.  I love missing moments, too.  I can't help but think that Ginny suspected something, and I KNOW Hermione did.  I'm sure those two shared a laugh and a plan over the whole thing
