"But Ron was there for me, like a true brother should have been". Okay, this line TOTALLY CONFUSED ME. at first i was like oh, its ginny because of this line. and then it was HERMIONE. and usually i don't like harry hermione, but since she ends up with ron, i guess thats KIND OF okay. anyway, i just wanted to suggest taking out that line or changing it a little so that it doesnt confuse other people.
Author's Response: I actually don't remember exactly what I was thinking when i wrote this line, but I knew it would confuse people. And I chose to leave it in. Hermione doesn't have any siblings, and she counts her two best friends as almost her siblings. Except...not. I mean, she loves them as much as she would love a family member. She was referring to her state of thinking at that point in time, after Harry's passing. She had thought of Ron so often as a brother....and then other feelings just developed from that. Anyway, I hope I cleared up some of the confusion. And thanks for reading!
Brilliant, as usual! You really can bring a scene to life. Although I don't really follow that "ship," you expressed the feelings very well and brought it to a smooth conclusion, not upsetting her relationship with Ron while still displaying that continual simmering of feelings for the departed. Always a pleasure.
Author's Response: Thanks.
