This was a great read. Poor Ginny spends her early years afraid to tell Harry about her Mark, and then Tom Riddle happens. I like the contrast that Harry's Mark appeared in a beautiful manner and Tom's was violently forced upon her. At least Ginny got some happiness with Harry before they were captured. Hopefully Tom will give them more freedom after more time goes on.
thank you for this wonderful comment! i intentionally left it kinda open-ended so you can imagine whatever! maybe they'll turn the tables on tom later ;)
