I really enjoyed this, weirdly. You have an excellent talent for making a reader sympathize with the narrator. I really liked how you portrayed Ron's perspective on Harry and Hermione's relationship. Though we know they are just platonic (as indicated by her pause before leaving to see the other side of the ridge), this helps explain Ron's outburst later on and the emotions that led up to it, as well as establishing the power of the locket. Excellent job :)

Author's Response:

Hey, Olympia,

I'm really glad you enjoyed this- weirdly or otherwise.

I'm happy I could garner some sympathy for Ron, even when he's not at his finest.  Even though he's probably- let's say 'mistaken' about some things, I tried to show how and why he made those mistakes.  I can only hope I was successful. 

Thank you for reading and for the review!
