As Happily Ever After As They're Gonna Get by cjbaggins

Printer
Summary: My take on the first of those 'nineteen years' between the 36th chapter of DH and the epilogue.

Warnings: contains an unusually-shaped ring, a nosy neighbour, a rude shop assistant, shaving mishaps, thoughtful gestures, threatening goblins, and, unexplained appearances of Romantic!Ron and Romantic!Harry. You have been warned.

Rating is for *mild* innuendo and *mostly* innocent interactions but I wouldn't let my 9 year old read it.

1. Chapter 1 - Summer That Year by cjbaggins [ - ] (2347 words)
Disclaimer - with the exception of Mrs. Lancaster, Ezmelda and Aisha and their teammates (not including Gwenog Jones of course) who turn up much later, all of the characters included here were created by J.K. Rowling. I'm just taking them for a spin around the block, I'll put ‘em back, I promise.



2. Chapter 2 - Muggle Studies by cjbaggins [ - ] (5013 words)
Many heartfelt thanks to my wonderful husband for his explanation of how a vacuum cleaner works.

Astute fans (aren't you all?) will recognize Ron's line to Hermione - "Are you a witch or aren't you?" - these are, of course, Ms Rowling's own words. I'm just borrowing them.

As always, I'm also borrowing these characters (except Mrs. Lancaster, and you can keep her). I'll put them all back, I promise!

3. Chapter 3 - Letters from Home by cjbaggins [ - ] (3376 words)

4. Chapter 4 - Home Again, Home Again by cjbaggins [ - ] (5742 words)
New Author's Note: I've finally changed around some of the dialogue in this chapter after popular demand. I hope it suits.
5. Chapter 5 - Popping the (First) Question by cjbaggins [ - ] (3496 words)
These characters don't belong to me, I'm just borrowing them to have some fun. I'll put 'em back, I promise!
6. Chapter 6 - Errands by cjbaggins [ - ] (4133 words)
With the exception of the snotty store clerk (and you can keep him), these characters don't belong to me. They belong to Ms Rowling herself. I hope she doesn't mind me borrowing them for my enjoyment, and hopefully yours!
