Why do so many authors have Harry crying? Unless there is some sort of background for an emotional Harry, he doesn't cry. Ever. Well, there is the hospital wing scene after Voldemort's re-embodiment, but even then he he doesn't completely let go.
My own thoughts about this are summarized in a draft for the last chapter of TLT: Sorcerer's Apprentice. (Yes, drafts for all the chapters do exist in some form or another.) Harry has a nightmare about the events in the Chamber. "Harry was suddenly awake, grasping for his wand and glasses from the bedside table. He sat up in bed panting, his skin covered in a cold sweat. The thought that he was responsible for [character's name deleted] death, let alone Ginny’s, made him want to retch. His face grew hot and his eyes itched with forming tears. He began to blink away the tears, telling himself he must not cry. Tears were for cowards; heroes were never cowards. Harry was supposed to be a hero so he must never cry." A bit harsh, especially for a 12 year-old boy, but TLT Harry has an unhealthy view of himself.
Perhaps I'm an old fuddy-duddy but Harry crying for any reason strikes me as out of kilter as a new story referring to Virginia Weasley.
