Re: Here via Daily Snitch
Hi, thanks for weighing in. Oooh, and I think I know now what "D/S" meant in someone else's comment: Daily Snitch. ::scales fall from eyes::
As to your explanation of Ginny's reaction to Harry breaking up with her - I think that would be a really considerate, mature way to react. I just don't know that it's what I'd expect from a mid-teenager, particularly one who's kind of feisty.
I'm mulling over the sex thing, after reading a couple more comments here. I spend a lot of time with teenagers and ime when kids in couples have the kind of physical comfort with each other that Ginny and Harry show in HBP, they are having sex. OTOH, I'm speaking about a milieu where sex between teenage couples is considered a possibility, is not frowned upon by their peers, is accepted by at least some of the parents, is kind of assumed if the couple stays together for any length of time. So, I may be overgeneralizing improperly to a society with more restrictions on sex among adolescents. OT3H (lend me a hand, will you), it doesn't seem like those restrictions on talking about sex or acknowledging sex really do translate to not having sex. Have you seen the recent studies showing that about 50% of teens who make abstinence pledges have sex within a year?
