I read this once and I didn't review. I wasn't really much of a review-person then. But this is...Wow. I've been thinking about doing a fanfic with a base like this but...Other things happen. I love your work! Keep it up.

Loved it. I liked the way you dealt with a concept every Ron-writer has hashed out at least once - I like how his brothers are pushed aside in your narrative and Harry's the focus (I don't necessarily believe that, but I like the way you did it - made it believable, and that's what it's all about, after all).
I love the resignation in this, and the need to find his slot in their group - with the knowledge that whatever role he finds is just that, a role, and not who he could have been. Excellent work, really, although the language was perhaps a little higher than what I imagine Ron using. Despite that, the last line was especially cool, the kind that really sticks with you. Loved it.
And did I catch a slight Hamlet reference in there? "Therein lies the rub"?

Aw this was really bittersweet. I loved it.
This is Ron's perpetual dilemma, one that we occasionally see glimpses of.
Absolutely loved it.

lovely and bittersweet. poor old ron... i admit i am incredibly biased against him because i loathe rupert grint with all the passion of hell, i loathe him more that most people [including myself] hate jar jar. but will guess this is book ron who i like...
anyway v good and sad. hope ron does something heroic in book 5 and i hope they replace rupert grint.
also... a cracker you say? [that's the thingys with the paper hats and plastic toys right?]

This is really good! Poor Ron! But honestly, without Ron, where would Harry be? I personally love the sidekicks, because without a sidekick, the hero would be lost. It is the sidekicks that help the hero stand! I can sympathize with Ron, and I know what it's like to be lost in another person's shadow. Hopefully Ron can see how important he is. Look at me! Here I go, rambling on and on like this! You really do capture how Ron might be feeling about being best friends with the famous Harry Potter! Well done!
