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.
Unbelievable! This could have fit in DH without fail. Even to the detail of Hermione's nervous, self conscious babbling! These scenes between her and Ron are heartwarming!
Author's Response: Thanks so much. R/Hr are my favorite. :)
Sunshine spilled down onto the small grassy spot through a window in the tall trees. She stood a couple of yards back, staring at eleven letters cut into rock. It was beautiful, and yet, to Hermione’s eyes, nowhere near a worthy enough tribute for a life so full of rambunctious joy.
Awesome! I didn't even think about what would have happened after the final battle at Hogwarts. The epilogue in DH was a bit random and out of place. Nice to have a little fill-in!
Author's Response: I love speculating on all the ways the characters could have made it from the end of the battle to the epilogue. This was for a challenge, I picked the prompt in which a major character had to deal with the loss of a loved one. Thanks so much for reading and reviewing. I'm glad you liked it. :)
Summary: A distraught Hermione takes quill to parchment.
These letters are incredible. They stuck to who Hermione is and her relationship with Ron. I could definitely hear her voice as I read them. Nice work! I think JK would be proud. :)
Author's Response: I'm so glad you liked the letters and thought this could have happened. Thanks so much for reading and taking the time to leave a review. :)
