The morning after the Battle of Hogwarts, Ginny is trying to deal with her broken family---while wanting nothing more to escape and to find Harry. It's a wonderful fic on numerous levels. The grief of the Weasleys is palpable, and the portrayal of how a person can feel trapped among mourners, can feel weakened by needing to be strong, is incredibly accurate and moving. The fic is also excellent in describing how Ginny and Harry's relationship---though they only dated briefly---has developed, especially while separated in the war; it is deep, but also tentative and unsure.
