My heart broke when I finished reading book 7. These wonderful characters JK Rowling created were a blessed gift to me. They had become such a part of my life and vanished in an instant with the turn of the final page. My fanfiction is an attempt to keep these characters with me. They have become my companions and friends. Thank you, Ms. Rowling, for your deeply beautiful stories which continue to delight, encourage, comfort, and inspire so many.

Scenes from Shell Cottage by WeasleyMom
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 128]

Summary: This fic is a series of missing moments from the time H/R&H were at Shell Cottage, beginning immediately after they Disapparated from Malfoy Manor. JKR shows us what was going on with Harry, but this is my version of what could have happened with Ron and Hermione after one of the most emotional/disturbing events in the entire series.

UPDATED June 2010 When I first wrote this fic, I didn't know what a beta reader was, and frankly, it showed. Thanks so much to Natalie for helping me polish this up and make it more readable. Thanks also to both Julia and Carole, whose helpful comments in the review section allowed me to make some much-needed corrections during the rewrite. I would love to know what you think ~ reviews are very much appreciated!

This was nominated in the 2010 Quicksilver Quill Awards for Best Canon Romance.
