Hmm. Time to rant.
Half-Blood Prince. This book frustrates me to the hair-ripping point because:
1. LENGTH. Jo- we LIKE to read what you write! It was too rushed!
2. HARRY AND HERMIONE. Yes, I'm a shipper, but she just blatantly seemed to rip them apart- I think she got tired of people guessing "Harry or Ron" and just comepletely destroyed their relationship. I don't know about everyone else, but the eye-rolling-scathing-Lavander-gut-hating-typical-horrible-NOT Hermione was not present in the first five books.
3. KING'S CROSS. It's a little thing, but it bugged me that she just cut it off at Dumbledore's funeral.
4. HARRY. Does anyone know what he was thinking? Besides having totally-random-out-of-no-where-I-love-her Ginny daydreams? Can we say, "huh?"
Summary: One-shot. What happened when Ginny and Hermione shared a tent at the Quidditch World Cup? And what subject comes up that frustrates Ginny and makes Hermione realize... What is the matter with you, Hermione? I scolded myself. Harry is, as you said, just your friend. Why did that thought bother me? It was as if something was tugging at the back of my brain, telling me I was wrong… but I couldn’t be…
Summary: Dedicated to SecretKeeper, my role model, a writing angel sent from a world where everything is beautiful. Harry must leave for the Final Battle- but there's something... someone holding him back. How can he fight this? His greatest need, his strongest weakness? “…As long as I’m with you, I don’t care about breaking rules or stepping outside boundaries. As long as you’re close to me, whatever comes my way, I know I’ll be fine… just because you’re there with me. I’ve looked death in the face with you at my side, Harry… as long as I’m alive, I’ll be with you.”
*Wow- 800 reads! ...but only a few reviews... can you leave me something to go on before you leave? Thanks to everyone who gave this a chance!*
