Oh my gosh!!!! SO adorable. My favorite story of yours by far. :) that was amazing!!!!!!
Author's Response: Thank you so much!
Author's Response: Thanks.
First of all, congrats on your challenge win! I can see why you beat my entry. :D A few comments/criticisms now.
First of all, your clincher was perfect! Molly was IC, the ending line was hilarious, and it was the blunt/humorous ending that just brought a perfect close to your truthful and well-thought out characterization throughout the story.
You really captured the essence of Ron and Hermione - jealousy and intellect, banter/fighting and love - in the story and twisted it to make a brilliant plot. I loved the fact that Hermione used Viktor to spur Ron on, just like she used the idea of the Chamber of Secrets to spur the boys into making Polyjuice Potion. I loved the fact that Ron's jealousy is what gets him past his thickheadedness. :) The characterization is just brilliant. Great job.
The dynamic between the two characters is charming and accurate - just the right mixture of fighting and love that they've always shown in canon. I think you've really taken it to heart that it's never going to be fairytale for these two, but they'll make it through anyway.
You drive me crazy... I think Ron got it right this one time. :) She always will, but he'l love her anyway and that's why the pairing works.
Fabulous portrayal and a charming little story. Congrats again and thanks for the fabulous read!
Thank you, kumy! I was surprised I won, in truth. But, I guess if you enter enough contests, chances are you’ll win won sooner or later, right?
In some ways, Molly Weasley reminds me a bit of my own mom (or mum, however you want to say it). And, the funny thing about that whole bit was it was just the sort of thing I could see my own mom saying in that situation, especially if she knew the girl like Mrs. Weasley knows Hermione.
I kinda though using the whole Viktor thing was kind of cheap, myself. Oh, how original, a girl using another guy to get the attention of the guy she really wants. I mean, that has never been done or thought of before, right …. Still, it was too perfect to pass on, based on what we know from canon. We know Ron is jealous as all hell when it comes to Viktor and we certainly know it is well within Hermione’s character to come up with a crafty little plot to get what she wants. I think Hermione is actually pretty shifty, under the clean-cut surface. Look at some of the stuff she has pulled in the books, the thing with Rita Skeeter or the thing she nasty hex she put on the girl (forget her name just now) who ratted out the DA to name a couple.
Anyway, thanks for the lovely review. Incidentally, what is the name of your story for the challenge? I looked around for it after this review (granted, quickly) but didn’t see it. Let me know because I would like to read it. Thanks again, Kumy!
i can see why this came first!
Author's Response: Thank you.

Great POV. I love how your described the feeling in his stomach - "swallowed a galleon and sent a Niffler to get it" - priceless picture. Keep up the good work.
Author's Response: thank you.
Love this story!!
Favorite line: "'Well,' his mother yawned, looking only half-awake. 'It’s about time, dear.'"
I like how you captured the characters of Ron and Hermione!!
Author's Response: Thank you very much!
