Hey - I really like your stories... you do a great job.
I just had one little thing - Dumbledore wouldn't have said "I plead the fifth" - way too muggle and American for a British wizard to say!! Even though he loves muggle sweets, I doubt he would use the US Constitution as a reference and harry certainly wouldn't understand what he meant if he did!!!
Sorry - other than that your stories are great! Keep up the good work!
Author's Response: Thank you! Hahah- I never thought about it. I guess I just thought that \'pleading the fifth\' was a world-known scapegoat. (No offense to Aberforth, of course!) Hahha- i\'m so glad you pointed that out- what a whopper mistake! Thanks so much- I\'ll certainly do my best!
I like it, very sweet and touching...
Thank you for this story! I absolutely loved everything about it - I usually stick to Ron/Hermione canon, but this fic was awesome! The characters fit perfectly and the intricate plot was very Rowlingesque!
You did an awesome job with this story! The missing moments are the best moments. The Yule Ball line was beyond perfect - exactly how Ron would start that conversation. I loved the bits between Bill and Ron - how concerned Bill was for his brother and showing how Ron had really grown up.
One of my absolute favorite fanfics!
Thanks- keep writing!
Author's Response: That is such a nice thing to say. I'm glad you like the stuff with Bill.... to be honest, I'm not as comfortable with his character as I am with Ron, and so am always a little relieved to hear someone say it seemed all right. Thanks for reading and reviewing. I appreciate it. :)
Everything was beautiful, and Hannah felt calmer than she had all day; she felt all of the unsettled thoughts beginning to find their places in her frazzled mind.
This is lovely! I loved learning more about Hannah and I want more! I've read most of your writing and this is my absolute favorite - even though I'm a diehard R/HR reader.
Thanks for sharing your take on their day.
Author's Response: Haha... that makes two of us die hard R/Hr! :) I wasn't sure I would even know how to write another couple, but it was fun trying to figure this out. Glad you enjoyed it... thanks for the review, and for reading my other stories as well.
The best kind of surprise when scrolling through the Most Recent category is a new story by MagEd! And the seven women who loved Ron! Just what I wanted. Only improvement I could see would be to include me as number eight! lol
When you started the 7 series, I wanted Ron right away and you did him justice. I loved the Ginny bit and of course, Hermione. Especially that Harry would take her to the Museum - very Ron. And the fact that Ron saved George - of course he would b/c like someone else said in the reviews - he saves everyone!
Ron is my favorite, so this was bound to be good.
Thanks and please keep up the good work! I don't care how long we all have to wait!
Author's Response: Thank you! That makes me smile to read! A lot of people were asking for Ron, and I was a little nervous that it would be a let down -- I'm so glad you liked it! Hopefully you won't have to wait too long, but it's so nice to know that you don't mind waiting! And if you're number eight, then I claim number nine ;)
I was very excited to see that you had updated! I love looking back at all the R/Hr moments. I hate that Ron is dead, but it really shows how important he is - he's not just a sidekick. I love that you show how much he matters to the others through his death. This is one of my favorite R/Hr stories! Keep writing!
Author's Response: FAVORITE? HeeeeeHeeeeeHeee that made me happy :D Thanks for reviewing! I get like supperr hyped hwen my faves update . . . . glad to spread the feeling! -Joy :D
Loved this one shot! You really do know how to capture Ron and Hermione - I agree with you, I don't think they would have told anybody, not even Harry. I think my favorite part was the very end when Hermione rolled her eyes over Ron picking the place to eat. Perfect, that's them in a nutshell!
Author's Response: Thanks. I'm glad you liked the end. I can't see Ron being so sweet about spending hours in a bookshop unless he knew there was some food coming his way later on. ;) Thanks for reading and always taking the time to review--I appreciate it.
Very cute! I was wondering the entire time though - where was James??
Author's Response: Hi Lucygirl! I kept James away on purpose because he is too much like his grandfather and we all know how Snape felt about James I!!! But thank you for reading it and commenting.
I loved that (as a Ron fan there wasn't much of a choice...), however dark and angsty it might have been. Was it very wrong of me to kinda hate Harry... I mean what is with him - always having to be so perfect! I thought this was a great representation of how Ron was most likely feeling during this time - and I'm sure my hate for Harry was b/c of Ron's projecting! I loved the bunny - "if it had green eyes..." wow! The little things that Ron noticed about Hermione were perfect - he comes across as so simple sometimes, but I don't think that's him at all!
Very nice job, I really enjoyed it - give us some more "missing moments" please!
Poor Harry! Forced to play the antagonist in my little drama, he served well. I love the Trio, all of them, but, yeah, Ron had begun to see him as a sort of sexual rival and I had to convey that. The things Harry does in this story are just small things. In the scenario in my head, he's out collecting wood and just happens, for the sake of my plot, to run across this strikingly lovely Spindle bush. He snaps a branch from it and gives it to Hermione. No big deal. He didn't go searching for it, it took no trouble to procur it, and all he had to do was carry it back and hand it to her. But to Ron, it's a whole different thing, and ultimately, he hurts himself because he can't see Hermione past the looming 'threat' of Harry.
I agree with you. Ron is not simple, no matter how flat he sometimes becomes in the books. He's flawed and I think he's quite passionate, but he's not prone to contemplating why he feels what he does and so he often blunders.
I'm glad you liked it, and thanks for reading and for the review!
Love your fic! Love it. I'm a die hard Ron/Hermione shipper and this is just... perfect. Your moments fit wonderfully into canon and you've nailed the characters. I've read a lot of Ron/Hermione fanfic - this is one of the best!
I must add... I loved getting to see Tonks and Lupin together as well! Keep writing! Very much looking forward to the next chapter!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for reading and reviewing! I'm really happy that you're enjoying it so far! I couldn't resist NOT putting in a bit of Lupin and Tonks if I'm honest. The next chapter shouldn't be too far away :)
