Summary: Ginny finds the courage to come out to her brothers. Some are more understanding than others.

Review: She decides that it's time to tell her brothers on Sunday. The urge has been there for a while and after a bottle of a particularly lovely Gewürtztraminer she realizes that she has five brothers and five days in the week and telling one per day is not nearly so daunting as all five at once. It's not one of her more brilliant plans, but it's a plan, which is something.

A Week of Coming Out revolves around five days, five discussions, and a range of five very different reactions Ginny faces coming out to her brothers. Despite its relative brevity, it carries an emotional impact. Percy's response in particular had tears in my eyes.
