H/G and R/Hr
*Quote from The Epilogue*
Suddenly Harry was kissing her as if he couldn’t resist the temptation. There was a kind of frenzy to the kiss at first, a kind of desperate need, but it melted into something soft and sweet and gentle, a promise of a future when kisses would never be limited. When they broke apart he rested his forehead on hers, sprinkling a few affectionate butterfly kisses across her face. “I love you,” he murmured.
This story is amazing. It's actually enjoyable reading the story from different perspectives, especially from the rarely-mentioned Petunia and Dudley.
There were something along the chapters that I want to comment but by the time I reach the last chapter I already forgot =.=. Oh, and I would really like a convo between Ron and Hermione in the epilogue. I am sort of a R/Hr shipper :p. Here are a few spelling mistakes I found, just wanting to help :)
chapter 1: All you have to do it grip the watch for one minute straight and it will transport you directly to me.
chapter 3:Ginny shook her head, refusing to open her eyes and leave the memory, refusing to face the read world.
chapter 5: He was small and had more facial hair then hair on his head as well as a large, unattractive beer belly.
He was too busy searching for her, for any sign of her, for a chance to see her bushy brown hair, to be able to talk to hair, touch her, to simply be near her.
Dorian asked, much more viciously then Ron thought necessary.
I probably she have told you as soon as they left but I put it off.
chapter12: Petunia looked up from he hands, and found Hermione staring at her intently.
chapter 13: “Is that, or is that not, you’re story?” interrupted Snape sharply.
she was talking a house-elf. . . .
chapter14: There was a sudden prick of attention in his mind, but when he whirled around, it was already too let.
chapter16: Her only son had last a lot of weight in the last few months, and his hair had grown long and unkempt.
chapter 23: Ginny gave her a mockingly horrified gaze. “And you left Jamie would Ron?
“You were the one that chose to come by,” Ginny told her, “don't get made at me.”
“I saw it when I came it, Ginny,” she told her patronizingly.
Anyway, your piece is just great, and the plot is epic.
P/S: Btw, I am not a Marauders fan, though reading their narratives in your story is quite nice. I like Lily, and Sirius is badass haha.
Summary: One of Ron and Hermione's infamous arguments in Gryffindor Tower gets slightly out-of-hand, leading to complication, confusion, and an unexpected apology. But conquering their feelings becomes only the first in a series of battles the two must face.
Beautifully written. It leads the emotions progress gradually in the beginning then vigorously through the end.
Author's Response: Many thanks!!
Summary: Harry and Ginny are happily married with a baby on the way. When they manipulate Ron and Hermione into both meeting them for lunch, the last thing anyone expected was for Harry and Ginny to be kidnapped.
Suddenly Ron and Hermione are left with nothing more than a note and the realization it’s up to them to follow the clues and rescue the couple they both love and adore. If only the clues weren't nonsense. If only they knew who could possibly have taken Harry and Ginny. If only they didn’t hate each other. If only they hadn’t once loved each other.
Life just got a whole lot more complicated for Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger.
"Harry was right: there was no such thing as understanding girls, no matter how old a bloke got."
Wow, this story is wonderful. Even though you don't often write about the Hermione/Ron relationship in your stories, this one is excellent and not OOC. It's not the longest story, but I think it is epic, from beginning till end. There are some minor pauses in the flow, seeming like one or two words is missing but they do not affect the general greatness of the story.
Summary: "It hurts, doesn't it?"
"Pretending you've fallen out of love."
At the lead up to Ron’s wedding, questions start to be asked - by Ron, by Hermione - and by Ron’s bride-to-be. Over the years, the paths that were once so closely intertwined have separated, leading off in different directions. Meeting at the crossroads, looking back at the journey that has led them there, will Ron and Hermione choose to take a turn that may take them off-course forever, or simply continue straight ahead? Exect humour, mix ups, twists and turns amongst Ron and Hermione's ever tempestuous relationship - now complete!
Summary: Mostly R/Hr, scenes of their lives post-DH together. Pretty fluffy!
Summary: Following the Final Battle, two young couples share their first post-war conversations and finally admit their true feelings for each other.
wow, what a beautiful piece. Human and nature. Though I don't think Ron should be "the perfect boy", it makes all the fluff a bit unreal.
Summary: There are some people that get everything they want from life. There are some people who don't. This is the story of two of those unfortunate people who didn't.
lol, that spell almost killed me. I was shocked. Nicely executed haha.
Summary: Hermione decides that she's done with Ron and his constant want to pick fights with her. Not thinking that things could get any worse, Ron tells her how he really feels. Cute little One Shot form Ron's POV. Definitely a little fluffy.
Her eyes widened and she opened her mouth to say something. When nothing came out, I removed my hand from her chin, and I felt my face flushing scarlet again.
How could I have been so stupid?
“I understand,” I heard myself saying, but deep down I knew I never would.
It was pretty nice. Though I think a bit of details about the time of the memory, and about the fight would be better. And I dont think Ron's mom ever yelled at Harry.
Summary: It's been two year since the final battle. Hermione leaves the Burrow after returning from her last term at Hogwarts with Ginny when she decides to go home and clear things up with her parents. Ron begins to worry when Hermione starts to act strangely when he visits her.
It's nice. Though I think the introduction is too long, when Ron finds out what happens to Hermione, and the rest is a bit rushy. I was hoping it takes longer for her to remember things. The proposal is so fast.
The beginning was awesome, just too long in comparing to the rest of the events.
Author's Response: Thanks for the input! And yes yes, my endings do tend to rush, due to me wanting to finish/not knowing how to end it. I'm working on it.
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.
This is just great, especially the conversation between Hermione and Ron behind the stone wall at night. Though I didn't think that Ron could be a good talker, maturity and the experience in Malfoy Manor certainly create a great impact.
Author's Response: Yeah, I've got that critique before regarding Ron's characterization and I have really given it a lot of thought. I think we have a hard time imagining him and Hermione talking so much, but what on earth were they doing all those times Harry left them on the sofa in the Gryff common room to go off saving somebody from something. ;) You know? I'm glad you liked the story--thanks for the review.
Summary: Years after the events of "Deathly Hallows," Ron has an important question to ask Hermione. Can he ask it? What will she say?
Nice one, not too cheesy, that is the real Ron.
Author's Response: Glad you enjoyed it! Steering clear of cheese was one of my main aims in writing the story, so I'm thrilled that you don't think the whole thing is smothered in Velveeta! :)
Summary: The seven men who loved Hermione Granger.
very worth it indeed. Like a in-depth analysis of each major Harry Potter character, in a very interesting way. I chose to read this title first because I love Hermione, might as well be the eigth :)
Summary: A look at moments of Ron and Hermione's life through the years. The narrative alternates between their two POV.
For those of us that wonder what Ron and Hermione's life would be like through the years.
Though the events in the story are pretty far from each other on the timeline (3 chapters -140ish years), they are carefully and beautifully written, along with some nice humour. As a result, the main characters' life does not seem to be fast-forwarded and the most important events in their life are not rushed throughout the chapters.
I love the story, especially the last passages of chapter 3, when Ron and Hermione each gives their thoughts in first person about things they have achieved and experienced. At the end, they are not afraid of dead, because they can finally meet all their love ones, and because they always have each other.
Thank you for Creating such a great story.
