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.
I am a Ron/Hermione girl all the way and my love for Ron has recently increased in leaps and bounds simply from re-reading the series. However, this chapter has tripled my love and respect for that ginger-headed boy. <3
Author's Response: Aw, yeah! That makes my night. ;) I hope you keep reading and let me know what you think of the rest. Thanks!
Summary: Ginny Weasley has a strong spirit, and is not given to weepy emotional displays. But when her friend is taken from the Hogwarts Express during her sixth year, her fears begin to rumble and rage... at least for a moment.This is WeasleyMom of Hufflepuff writing for the final of the Hogwarts Missing Moments class. I am delighted that this fic has been added to the SBBC Hall of Fame on the Beta Boards. Thanks to my fellow SBBC-ers! What? This story won the 2011 QSQ Award in the category Best General Story! Thanks so much!
Wow. I am really impressed. I've never been a huge fan of Ginny, but this fic has completely changed my mind about her. Wonderfully written. And the line, "She was grown up now, feet and everything" blew my mind. So poignant. Beautiful.
Author's Response: Thanks. I'm glad to have changed your mind about her a bit. I loved her character in the books, but lost interest due to the abuse she received in the films and (sometimes) in fanfic. Thanks for mentioning the line you liked... it is one of my favorite parts of this fic, too. :) ~ Lori
