Holy Movie Canon, Batman! This fic won the 2011 Quicksilver Quill Award for Best Chaptered Humor Story. Thanks so, so much!
Surprised to see an update, but it was a good surprise! I never really understood the fire at the Burrow scene either...good point! Can't wait for more : )
Author's Response: Thanks so much! Glad you agree about that crazy scene! Haha!
This is a very clever idea! We know as fans how we feel about the changes but I've never thought about how the actual characters would feel if they were real people. Great job, can't wait for more!
Author's Response: Thanks! I find this is the healthiest way for me to channel my frustration with some of the choices that were made for the films.
i LOVE your hermione and ron fics! its crazy to see the pain they went through and how it brought them even closer together (in the books and in your stories) : ) keep them coming!
Author's Response: Thanks so much. When reading the books, I often squealed "get on with it and get them together!" But now, I appreciate the way Rowling did it... with the hard times sealing the deal between them and making it all that much more intense. Thanks for the review!
What made Hermione ask out a boy who "makes Grawp look a gentleman"?
I really enjoyed seeing inside the minds of Ron and Hermione during the most jealous times betweem them, although books apart. It's nice to see their side when we usually only see Harry's! I wish it would have continued to show a scene from Deathly Hallows, that would have been interesting. Great job, thanks for sharing : )
Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it. "I wish it would have continued to show a scene from Deathly Hallows." Actually, I have another R/H fic that is Hermione's pov during certain parts of Deathly Hallows. If you are that interested, perhaps you should read it!
Thank you for reading!
I love the idea of telling the story through letters! It was nice to see Hermione's side of the story after Ron left since we already know Harry's. The emotions running through the words are the best part of this story, thanks so much, can't wait for more!
Author's Response: Thanks. The letter idea came from a prompt in TTB. Funnily enough, R/Hr were not allowed for the challenge, but this just would not leave me alone. So this basically evolved from that first drabble letter (the first letter of the series). I 'm so glad you thought it worked... thanks for the review.
This is the tale of a birthday… A seventeenth birthday, no less. It tells of a present given to a redheaded teenager by the love of her life, a gift that became the best present she would ever receive; better than all past and all future presents. It tells of a present she would never, ever forget.
Just as you love Ginny and Harry as a couple, I love Ron and Hermione. That is why I am surprised that I was so touched by this story. The gift was very original, much better than the easily predicable engagement ring. It was nice to see them share a private moment in the quiet of the dawn. Thanks for sharing!
After it was all said and done, Harry wanted a sandwich. However, Ron knew that what he wanted was far deeper and complex and maddening and insufferable. But could Hermione ever forgive him for leaving her behind? Could he ever forgive himself?
This story was nominated for a 2011 Quicksilver Quill Award: Best Canon Romance.
A cute short fic that made me smile. I like how it picked up exactly where HP7 left off before the epilogue, with Harry returning to his room. It was sweet to see Ron and Hermione having this romantic moment in the Common Room, thanks for sharing!
I'm glad you liked it. sort of had a stray thought a while ago. Someone asked me what kind of sandwich Harry asked for, and I thought, "Hey, what would Ron (the one who is far more food-obsessed) want after the battle?" Well, Hermione...duh, lol.
Since this is not a ship I typically write, it's nice to know that it seems IC. Thanks for reviewing, and take care. :D
Amazing! Romance at its best! Off to check the sequel now...
Wow I was completely blown away by this story! I have never read anything like it! It is nice to see what may have happened after the epilogue. Hermione and Ron are the cutest couple, can't wait for more!
Author's Response: Thank you! And I can finally say Chapter Three is up so enjoy and I hope you like the way it ends!
I never really thought about how wizards might like longer than muggles but I guess it makes sense! I loved seeing this version of their life through the years. Thanks for sharing, very creative idea!
Author's Response: I'm fairly new to fanfic but I know from the books that wizards live longer but apparently there is a debate as to how long exactly. I chose to make the average lifespan at least 150 years old but obviously they can live longer or die younger just like in real life. I wanted Ron and Hermione to have a longer life so they are definitely older than 150. Anyways, I'm glad you liked the story! Thanks for sticking with it until the end!
That's it?? The end?? I was hoping that would continue into more chapters but I liked the sneak peak into the mind of Ron. Great job!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! :D Truthfully I think it could go on too, so I might add more.
Awww so bitter sweet! I enjoyed seeing this little window into what may have been, thanks!
Author's Response: Thanks! I really enjoyed writing it and I'm glad you liked it!
Absolutely loving this plot! I would say I hope you update soon, but since you havent updated since 2010, I find that highly unlikely. It is a shame, because you really do have the beginnings of something good! Interesting concept. I'll add this to my favorites just incase you choose to finish it : )
I love it! Wonderful idea for a story and my only complaint is that this first chapter was way too short! Can't wait to read more : )
Author's Response: My next chapter is almost written. It's been a little delayed because I've been taken down quite badly with flu for the past week. Hopefully however I will be able to get it submitted soon. I can promise you the next chapter is going to be alot longer!
Is this the end?? I hope not...I was hoping for more of a happy ending from Draco and Hermione, especially after all they have gone through. I enjoyed the prequel to this one, please write more soon!
Sooo if they are at shell cottage a year later, Ron bought the ring and kept a secret for a year??? Doesn't seem likely. Cute chapter, but again it is all over the place and isn't making sense. Hope that as more chapters are added it will all come together, thanks for sharing!
Author's Response: no, i don't think that he kept it secret for that long, it all depends on when he and hermione were planning on going to austrailia to set her parents memories back, and i leave that time period to the readers imagination. even though i really didnt touch on this point, i could see hermione going back to finish school, (after the summer though, so theres a chance to rebuild.) so during the summer (maybe) would be when they go, but its entirely possible that they went some other time before their spring holiday, so im not entirely sure on that one. i hope it makes sense later, but i've only got one more chapter left, so we'll see how that goes. thanks for the review. :)
This was definitely the best chapter! Although the quote "Where else am I going to go?" made me giggle because it sounds like the Twilight movie. Very sweet morning after the proposal/flashback...thanks for sharing!
Author's Response: umm, im afraid to say this for fear of being jumped by certain people...but i sort of "borrowed" that line from that unmentionable movie, because i liked it so much. i thought it fit for it, though, so i guess it really doesnt matter where i got it from...thanks so much for the compliments too, im glad you liked it. :D
Again, enjoying this fic very much, but still confused. I feel as though we are thrown through the journey with Ron and Hermione with no explanation of the relationship or what is really going on. Hoping for more clarification in the future, looking forward to additional chapters. Thank you for sharing!
Author's Response: I'm glad that you're looking forward to the next chapters, and I think that they will definitely deliver (and hopefully will clear some things up for you as well.) thanks for the review! :D
Finally a new Ron and Hermione fic! I'm a litte confused, but enjoying it anyway! Would like to know why they werent together for the past year before this reunion at Shell Cottage. Can't wait for more!
Author's Response: well, i dont know if ive explained this before or not, but to ron and hermione, its pretty obvious that they were and are "together", but to everyone else, it just looks like a normal ron/hermione relationship, complete with angst and bickering. :) so i guess they've been together for a while, but they havent really made it public yet. does that make sense? trust me, theres definitely more to come. :D
adorable idea for a fic! its nice to see a glimpse of hermione and ron's private moments without harry since they are never revealed in the books. can't wait to see ron's reaction to hermione's outburst, post more soon!
