Interesting idea and its strange that I sometimes find myself thinking of odd little scenarios in my head of what I'll find when I return home as well and it's a beautiful fic and makes lots of sense considering she spent her childhood and the beginning of her adulthood fighting a war and being in danger every year and dealing with the aftermath so of course it would make sense that she would feel a bit dissatisfied with her life and I like how Ron's content with his life with a family all grown up and safe and a wife that he loves he would be

That. was. deep. You are a really talented/fantastic/great/spectacular/*insert more complimentary adjectives here* writer! Especially if I'm reading a fanfic that doesn't have that spine-tingling romance in it. GREAT JOB!

Extremely well written if not a bit saddening.

It's fascinating and beautifully worded—it's also quite sad. That is, I think one of the saddest endings a wonderful life can wind it's way too (being merely [mostly] content, that is).
I really enjoyed that moment of Hermione's wonderings getting away from her there; my heart rate started picking up and I just felt excited—and then proportionally disappointed when there was nothing different for her to come home to.
Really cool, all in all.

This story is incredibly creepy and haunting while having no sense of outright danger. It's really hard to put this kind of tension into a story without a clear external enemy. Good job.

This was lovely. Truly lovely. I don't know, I just really liked it. Hm.

Lovely. Sweet and sad and well, just *life*. In a nutshell...

If ever there were a better reason for Harmony, I haven't read it.

Oh... Goodness. This is my life. No, really. Every word, I felt like I was reading MY LIFE ON PAPER. (Except for the explanation of the magical accident. I've never had to worry about extra ears growing on people.) We've only been married for one year, and after reading the story, I have this vision that my life will do this for 27 years, and I am absolutely appalled... Erghk. So, technically this was a life-changing story, for me to read it now. Or maybe not. As Hermione points out, toward the end, she made a habit of doing nothing, so why change?

So sad and yet so true for so many people! This is oddly enough how I see their marriage after so long. Hermione needs a challenge and Ron is not it. I never Greed with jkr putting them together in the first place. Excellent story :)

I doubt Hermione would be the head of the department of magical law enforcement. Although she derives some satisfaction from being bossy and in control and her heart would lend itself to protecting others, she derives more satisfaction from learning and teaching. That said, I could totally imagine a boring existence with Ron. Ron is lame.

Wow... I dont usually read Hermione/Ron pairing - even though Hermione is my fav character - but this was absolutely beautiful. Generally I dont read such fics because they make me a bit depressed but i really liked this one. I loved your use of 'Erised' as the title. And Hermione is portrayed so neatly, specially the stagnation that her life has become with nothing new and exciting happening. Even Ron has been very well portrayed just how i imagined him to be once he hit a certain age.

It's interesting how you put Hermione in a sort of dead end. Maybe you could make a part 2 or something that developed the train of thought, maybe where she broke the pattern? Maybe not, though. It's already really well-written and it has a one-shot feel to it. Really great!

I often don't review on things anymore, but I'd just like to mention that I feel like you've characterized Hermione very well. I honestly could never see her settling down inside of a kind of domestic and motherly role, not without her feeling a bit unhappy with herself for not reaching her capabilities. I think her limits haven't yet been met, and she won't be happy even if she does reach those limits. I think that she'd always be one to make a more challenging goal in life, not just settling down into it.
This is how I imagined Hermione and Ron's relationship in the future, and you've portrayed it incredibly well. Great job!
