A dabbler in the world of snarky men and know-it-all women.
Imagine my delight when I discovered yet another place where I could fangirl you! No, it's not stalking. I was here for another reason, but I did in fact squee when I saw your story posted here.
Once again, may I tell you just how much I love this story and your stunningly brilliant adaptation! I'd give you an Oscar if this were a film!
This was the first story of yours which caught my eye. Even after all this time, it's still a beautiful character piece, and it makes me want to just hug Ron for his perceptiveness. He's so often overlooked, and I think he really is worthy!
Author's Response: Aww thanks--its such a lovely surprise to have gotten this review in my inbox and know this story lured you into rereading it and that even after all this time you still find it striking. (And yeah, even after all this time I still feel poor Ron doesn\'t get enough credit!)
Had you even bothered to change the title, or any of the significant phrasing in this story you might have escaped detection. I know for a fact you've stolen this piece -- word for word -- from SnarkyWench. I am her beta, and I beta'd this story in 2008! I find it amazing you could accept the accolades and praise of people for a story you had NOTHING to do with -- not the idea, the concept, the ability to write the words in such insightful and heartwarming ways. You sleep at night basking in praise that doesn't belong to you. The best part of that is you KNOW you don't deserve it. You owe this archive, the readers, and most especially SnarkyWench apologies ... groveling wouldn't be amiss. Try it; it might heal your soul.
