Harry & Ginny
"THE SILVER LINING"
Fic Recs for a Newbie?

Hi! I've decided to write Harry Potter fanfiction for National Novel Writing Month this year, and it looks like my story is going to feature Harry/Ginny pretty heavily. Just one problem: I've never actually read any fic which is primarily focused on them! They've always just been a background couple in fic about another ship I love.

I'm spending October trying to bone up on the fandom by reading as much fanfic as possible, and I would really love it if some of you nice people could suggest some things for me to read. Especially helpful would be stories set post-HBP or DH, after they've broken up, and are just now starting to get back together. Also, anything which focuses more on Ginny's POV of the relationship.

Thanks for your help!

Hope you don't mind if I pimp my own stuff: Starting Over and its sequel Inner Demons, and a separate, very short "epilogue." I'll warn you, the second one is way too long, but all of them are in Ginny and Harry's POVs. They're set Post DH covering several years right after the war.

I'll be checking back on this post for recs from others, and please let us know when you finish yours so I can have a look at that, too. Good luck. Enjoy your H/G month.

I'd likewise pimp my own stuff - be advised that a majority (though not all) of it is adult oriented.

Beyond that, however, there are a couple great places to start:
Crack Broom has a whole load of H/G recs going back years.
Sink Into Your Eyes (SIYE) is a H/G centric, moderated site, so most of the stories are of good quality.

Thanks! I don't mind about the adult-oriented, so I'll check out your stuff. I had already found SIYE, but Crack Broom's page looks like it will be helpful.
