Pairing: Harry Potter/Ginny Weasley
Fic Title: Taking Control
Author: fake a smile
WIP?: No (sequel planned)
Why This Must Be Read: For those of us who like stories where we see Harry take control (no pun intended) of his life, this is probably one of the better stories out there. With a little help, Harry begins to prepare himself as war engulfs the Wizarding World and nearly all of the adults around him continue to try to wrap him in cotton. Ginny's part in this fic too is not unsignificant. Though not the focus of the story, Ginny provides a strong presence and shoulder for Harry to lean on when he needs it (especially when Ron and Hermione get on his case, which happens fairly often). The build up of the romance in the story is also very well-written. An excellent story.
