Why Hermione Is Different Than All The Other Girls by GwendolynJames
Rated: 1st-2nd Years [Reviews - 72]
Summary: If Hermione hadn't met the boys on the train that first day, things would most certainly be different. Featuring Metro!Ron, Loser!Harry, Stalker!Hermione, and Smoker!Ginny.
Yaay! I love how you used dialogue to infer actions, that was really well done. And having the trio tell the actual fiction, that was ace, too. Good job, and thanks for making me giggle!
Summary: Trains, crazy old janitors, Fred and George mooning someone, this fic has it all. With Wizards all around them, Muggles are bound to see something weird everyonce in a while. This short story is taken from the beginning of Goblet of Fire.
Fantastic! This was truly a unique idea, and you wrote it very well. I honestly laughed out loud--my mum asked just what was I reading that was so funny. I thought it was very realistic, how you ahd Colin believe that, first, the odd folks were homeless and, second, that he was curious and firghtened by what he saw. Fred and George were priceless, too. A + my friend!
Summary: Hermione and Ron have always been best friends. Now, Ron has finally realized that he might want to take it to a different level. Luckily, and unknown to Ron, Hermione has too. (Mainly R/H) In the backround Harry and Ginny are finding out how much thier friendship, and maybe more, are worth.
It's all fine and dandy that Ginny can wait, but I don't want to! Very nice, mrsweasley. I want to know what happened!
Summary: Professor Granger deals with a pair of students who have inherited a knack for trouble...
A very clever idea indeed! I particularly liked Harry's response to Hermione's letter about Lily stealing potions and having a crush on someone too old for her. And then Hermione catching him on the five word thing-- wonderful, I actually laughed out loud.... once I got the joke (Hey, its late :-)]. Anyway, great job, very funny!
Summary: The eight Gryffindor seventh years are all bored out of their minds. But then, Dean gets a wonderful idea to start a wild snowball fight down on the grounds of Hogwarts. All is going well when Ron somehow brings to life an Army of evil snowmen. Their recent fight against each other soon becomes a raging battle to protect their sanity and prevent themselves and their friends from getting kidnapped bythe snowmen.
A very unique idea, and genuinely funny! I only wonder where Ron got his wand, since everyone was supposed to have left them in the common room. Not a big deal, I suppose. Anyway, very nice! I hope to read an update soon--and don't apoligize about the lengths of your submissions--quality is far more important than quantity. :-)
Author's Response: Oh wow, I didn\'t realize that! Now I\'m goign to have to think of a way to make it seem like I did that on purpose! I\'m not finished writting the 4th chapter, and then there\'s the whole entry process thing, so you can probably count on seeing the next chapter within 3 weeks.
Summary: Ron should know better than to trust his twin brothers. Especially when it comes to matters of the heart.
Oh so very lovely! One of the best R/Hr fics I've read in a long while! The cast was in cahracter--Hermione in particular, I thought, as she tends to lose her personality in romantic fiction. The humor was added in all the right spots, and the romantic moment by the lake was really touching. I really liked the part about Crookshanks' mistress being back a bit late. Really nice, msmoocow! Two thumbs up for smiley-warm fuzzies!
Author's Response: Wow, thanks for the specific review! I\'m afraid humor is so hard to pull of for me, and I\'m ecstatic that you thought it was done well! Thank you so much!
A short breather from the war and the wedding...Molly is in her rocker, in her Prewett heirloom eye mask.
Ron and Hermione are in the window seat, discussing rain, honeymoons and stilettos and... that thing they really should get to discussing.They do get to discuss it.
And Molly had a treat.This was an entry to the first Skele-Gro Challenge at MNFF Betaboards.
The Prewett mask is such a clever idea, and absolutely perfect for Molly. It makes me wonder how many of the twins' dubious plans were whispered in front of their supposedly snoozing mummy. A really good job, I think, with characterization. Ron and Hermione seemed just awkward enough. You didn't sacrafice either of their pesonalities in order to bring about this tender moment. Great job, dear!
Author's Response: Thank you so much, Sam! *cooing with glee*
Author's Response: Oh sorry, Bethany! Mistook you for another Sam, whew! Thanks again. ^_^ It just popped into my mind, you know, kind of a plot bunny, too, isn\'t it, that mask? Just imagine...
Summary: It has been 6 weeks since the death of Lord Voldemort, and Ron looks back at the most important year of his life.
Oh my goodness.... That was completely unexpected. Even after you said Ron died, I thought maybe the Order somehow... I didn't realise it was his spirit watching her. Holy crap. lol Very, very good.
Author's Response: Thank you my dear! That was just the response I was after. One of things I was annoyed with was being forced to admit in the title that someone was going to die thanks to the character death warnings. But thanks to reviews like yours, I now know I neednít be worried.
Summary: What if Hermione was in Slytherin? Would things have changed?
I donít think so.She would be a Slytherin Princess, still as golden, only more cunning and less conventional.
In this story, let her teach you in gaining influence over the very people who crave it.LucillaJoanna of Hufflepuff is here playing Lachesis for the May One-Shot Challenge...
...And won Second Place!(Rating only for mild language)
Very interesting. I don't know how to describe what you did, but you did it wonderfully. I love how you incorporated key points in the books, showing that they still happened--but perhaps for a lsightly different reason--even though Hermione. I also find it interesting what she said to the Sorting Hat in the begininning, about wanting to be where she would fit in best. Dumbeldore said that it is our choices that decide who we are, and we know Harry is only in Gryffindor because he asked--what would happen to the other characters if the Sorting wasn't based on choices? Ooops, sorry about that. Anyway, I really, really liked this fic! A+!
Author's Response: Thank you so much, Bethany! *squeals over the A+* And that\'s an astute observation. In this fic, Hermione also decided: to like and be devoted to her rightful House, regardless of what she heard on the train. This in itself is rather Gryffindor/Hufflepuff/Ravenclaw! She is so complex! ^_^
Summary: Ever wonder how Ron and Hermione really got together? How constant fighting seemed to lead to a romance? What happens when a letter to a certain Durmstrang student sends a certain Gryffindor over the edge? Join Ron and Hermione on the night they came together, and the pumpkin pasties that seem to get in the way. All told from Colin Creeveyís point of view, of course!
Absolutely marvelous! You had me guessing, gasping, my jaw dropping. This has to be one of the best Ron/Hermione fics I've read. The unique point of view was a good choice, too, particularly Colin. You did really well with that outsider's perspective. I absolutely loved it. Bravo, and bravo again!
Author's Response: Eeekk! Thanks so much! I\'m very delighted that you enjoyed this one so thoroughly! =]
Summary: Hermione has been thinking about Ron a lot lately, but when she decides to mend everything between them, what will she encounter? Hermione's point of view of the beginning of Ron and Lavender's relationship.
Oh... How sad. Beyond repair? I certainly hope not! A very interesting idea, showing the scene from Hermione's perspective. Well done.
Summary: As Ron tries out his hand at Patronuses during the last D.A. meeting, a memory comes to mind that still brings a smile to his face.
I am beauty and brains of Gryffindor for the June One-Shot Challenge.
Pretty good! Ron's actual patronus is a jack russel terrier, but, seeing as this is fanfiction, I suppose it does't matter too much. Well done. Thanks for the giggle.
Author's Response: Yeah, that\'s the reason for the AU warning and the author\'s note. But thanks for the review! =]
Summary: Hermione froze at the door and whirled around. She didn’t look angry anymore, but was instead looking rather miserable. Tears were leaking out from under her eyes and leaving wet trails down her pallid cheeks. Though she looked hurt, she still managed to spit out heatedly, “Maybe I will write to Viktor. Maybe I need a friend who doesn’t have such a thick skull.”
“Well, fine!” roared Ron, his hands no longer in fists but clenching and unclenching much like Crabbe and Goyle’s would when they would try to look particularly menacing. “You should tell him to come over and then you could take turns snogging him and McLaggen!”
Ron and Hermione are at it again, but is this the chance they need to break the ice and reveal their true feelings... or are they just too stubborn to seize the oppotunity?
Takes place during the trip home at the end of HBP.
(A R/Hr one-shot with just a dash of H/G.)
... (8/21/09) Over 1000 reads since they added this read count thing, which was a long while AFTER I published! Wow.
I'm actually glad Ron and Hermione didn't get together; in so many fics, the huge rows like this always end in a kiss or snog fest or something, and I find that rather out of character for the pair. Very nicely done. Your charactarization was excellent, and the situation was believable. This has to be one of my favorite one-shots, I think. Keep up the excellent work!
Author's Response: Thank you! The story just ended up the way it did, Ron and Hermione were just too angry to get together. I couldn\'t force them to kiss, it would\'ve been to unbelievable. Glad you liked it. ^^
