Ron is trapped in his grief for Hermione, killed on the Horcrux hunt so many years ago. His memories take over as he goes through the same repetitive motions until he is lost in his emotions.
Post DH, AU, implied R/Hr. Character death.
Nominated in the 2012 Quicksilver Quills for Best Alternate Universe
That's so sad. Poor Ron, finally realizes his feelings for Hermione, and then she dies.
Author's Response: Thank you for reviewing! Yes, Ron has rather a sad time of it here. He's stubborn, including with his feelings so I think he would tend to dwell on it for a long time.
