Summary: This story is set in the middle of HBP. Itís a ďwhat ifĒ scenario. I ask the question: What would have happened if Ron had not interrupted a conversation between Harry and Hermione? Throughout HBP, Ron came between Hermione and Harry. I ask you to think about this: If Hermione loved Ron and was jealous of Lavender, why did she have the birds attack Ron? Why didnít she attack Lavender?
Read the reviews for my fict. It's been flammed by a Ron-Hermione fanatic who is unbelievably stupid. This is great fun!
Summary: There was once a goofy movie called Clue with a plot that was based on a board game. This movie had several possible endings that were all implausible but they were fun and entertaining. This little yarn is an alternative ending of the Harry Potter series and is offered in the same spirit of fun and entertainment.
Of course with themes like love and death itís not all laughs.
This story begins in the summer before Harryís sixth year. I began writing it months before reading HBP so youíll have to accept that just about everything in my version of the HP universe is different from JKRís HP universe. (Pretend HBP didnít happen.)
In my story Hermione has loved Harry since her third year at Hogwarts. She is terrified by the war. If she doesnít grow up quickly, she might not grow up at all. Since Harry is over his infatuation with Cho Chang, Hermione makes her move and she pulls out all of the stops. Expect some extreme behavior from a girl who throws herself at a project and is under a lot of stress. She still cares deeply about S.P.E.W.
- Having never heard of a Horcrux, I devised another source of Voldemortís immortality.
- I donít like Professor Snape, but Iím not bold enough to make him a real Death Eater.
- There is a war on and characters are killed, wounded and tortured, but not Dumbledore.
- Iíve made Ron into a much more confident and serious character than the books.
This is based on three ideas: war is like chess and Ron excels at that, contact with the brain in the DoM could make Ron more thoughtful, and hanging around with a manly man who works with dragons like Charlie Weasley could help any boy grow up.
