Oh poor Ron. Of all jobs, he just have to land himself in the Daily Prophet, and -le gasp- under Rita Skeeter of all people! Although I really find it hard to believe that Rita have noidea that Ron is Harmony's best friend. I mean, if she doesn't, then she really doesn't have what it takes to be a reporter, really. Oh, and what's with the footnotes?
| Sailor Silver Moon chapter 4 . 10/4/2005
Marvelous story - though it seems like it's been left alone for a while. I love your sense of humor :)
| stoop chapter 3 . 6/6/2004

| Meg chapter 4 . 4/20/2004
Thank you for the Pride and Prejudice reference!
| Red Death chapter 1 . 11/4/2003
Numbered footnotes are not necessary. Removal would greatly improve this story.
| Thelvyn chapter 4 . 1/22/2003
Poor Ron... Excellent fic in every way, I do hope that Ron survives the experience - he's not the one for Hermione but I wouldn't wish Rita on my worst enemy (well not after the first few articles anyway...)
| Puntang Jones chapter 1 . 10/18/2002
OMG! I love all your stories
| Dark Phoenix chapter 3 . 5/19/2002
One "word" for this chapter: Awwwwww. _v About the previous one: yeah, I kinda got a little confused by the fast and short POV changes, and by Trelawney, I meant the magic 8 cube.
| Dark Phoenix chapter 2 . 5/19/2002
Grrrr! I wanna WRING that Rita's tiny little neck! Boo! Hsss! XD Nice chapter... Love the bit about the law firm, and Harry's typical guy reaction to wedding planning. But nothing beats Trelawney. XD XD XD
| E. C. R. Potter chapter 4 . 5/19/2002
Excellent! I just loved that scene with Herm's Gramps raving about Harry. Oh, but now Lily's there. What next?
Poor Ron. I sure hope things look up for him in the near future.
| E. C. R. Potter chapter 3 . 5/19/2002
Yes, yes, I know. I was referring to her people skills (which all already knew). Dang, I'm starting to like this story more and more. For some strange reason, I especially like the fact that its centered around Ron!
| Green Monkie chapter 4 . 5/18/2002
tehehe, i notice, no flower illiminating this chapter-. I really like Harry's reaction to Meeting the Parents, i can just imagine my dad saying something like that to my boyfriend. except it'd be more like "Who said you were gonna marry her? She's not alowed to even DATE until she's 27!" don't laugh, my dad has said that on numerous occasions so it is a reeal problem for somepeople.
The fact that Hermioen is oblivious to this is even funnier!

I can't believe this chapter ended so soon! But what away to out!
This work is certainly morphing in unexpected directions. Adding Sirius to the mix as an "A" player opens new doors, and suddenly this story promises greater length, more depth. So much more to savor. And I do. The reasoning behind Sirius' teaching position is flawless. Everyone automatically makes him DADA teacher; but why NOT Transfiguration? As usual, this is sheer poetry from first word to last.
One more little thing. Waiting I endorse, but if I EVER implied that such a period should be used to explore other horizons, may I be trampled by hippogriffs! Pardon my laughter. Who knew a simple little story could stir such drama OFF the page? I chalk it up to good writing that jumps right off the screen (and nicks a handful of popcorn from me flippin' bowl - gerroff, you!). Mediocre writers don't have that problem. The burden of talent, I suppose. Oh, and the prompt posting was a delightful surprise. Careful, you'll spoil us even further. Quality we take for granted as coming with the Penname - but quality on a daily basis? Talk about wandless magic!

Haha NAPPA. You gotta work out some more.
A day of light manual labour shouldn't be that frustrating...some of us have been doing more than that for over 10 years, everyday.
(I work for my parents, 30 hours a week, 10$ a week, all year long)
As for the Gf-parents. I, am THE Parent charmer.
You are talking to the KING. My last one was most successful, my manners, intelligence and wit even convinced her mother to let me stay at her house for a few hours alone...
All u gotta do is: show manners, respect for elders, show you care about their daughter and you have ambition and intelligence. Bada bing bada boom. A little humour wouldn't hurt, but refrain from ... certain jokes, remarks. Sharing hobbies is a great way to connect. (ie. golf lessons)
Now sorry bout that Yumi.
even simpler to read than the last ch., not bad.
D/G? Ah.. nice to see the Molly thing in here.
Interesting to see Skeeter not as dumb as people portray. but very...big mouthed?
Wonder where this story is going? Other than the wedding and Meet the parents...
I know its not D/Hr though..thank goodness...
I also agree with your "Mrs." remark. I believe the estrogen/testostrome is incredible. So many girls have these silly crush and become Mrs. XXX when they clearly do not think about Mr. XXX properly. And the future properly...
Have a nice day.
You may have noticed I was extra sarcastic today.
Please don't let it be confused with arrogance...
| Guest chapter 4 . 5/18/2002
The bulk of this chapter, I've read before. I think it was on SCUSA. Loved it. By the way, I can't wait till you write the Warpath!Hermione. I want to so see Harry and Ron get a beating from her, it's not even funny...scratch that, it IS funny.
I think the only reason that I am in favour of that fic is beacuse, Harry will get beaten a few less times than Ron.
On the marriage thing:
I am a typical male. ...Err... almost. Anyway, I would like to make a point. Society still expects men to be the one earning bulk of the money in the family. We are expected to be the the onees to take care of the work, and the wife. Which is what you were talking about being part of another person. That same situation is a lot of the times not wanted by the male in the relationship. I for one know that I don't want my wife dependant on me. Real life is unpredictable. I could die and leave her with no money and no way to earn money. THat's why, I always get intop relationships with women who are sure of themselves. Who will be able to live through the harsh reality of life, not crumble in it. I do know that not all men think of it this way, but I do. To some extent it looked to me that Harry felt that way.
He did not want Hermione to give up her life for him, just become a part of his. It was evident to me from what he said about waiting for her...forever.
Personally, I do think you are not taking the fact that they both had terrible things that they had been through as a point of consideration. If you are, you are not taking it as big a piece as I would have had.
Personally, I think of the suffering the Voldemort inflicted on Lily/James. That was when he was not sure that he had a way to come back if anyone managed to kill him. When he came back, I assume that he was even more terrible. I also assume that Lil/James had been targetted after Hogwarts - becuase Wormtail had been leaking secrets before they knew that the potters were a target.
Harry had always been the centre of attention from Voldemort. The way he focuses on Harry, makes me believe that, Harry and Hermione and Ron would have had seen a lot more horrors then his parents had.
This leads me to think that they would so yarn for Happiness, a crum of happiness, that this will accelerate any plans they had for the future. Hermione, I've believed always looks alot futher with her decisions. The only thing that I found that she had not was the too many subjects in the 3rd year. Only time her thirst for knowledge overrode her logic. I see Hermioen in the book thought long time before starting the elf crusade. I just believe that Hermione would have had thought of how happiness with Harry would be, when war was on. Just think of all the issues that she would have to deal with - which though otherwise would be big, compared to what she was going to be in - would be much easier to think about. Perhaps it would be her escape from reality of the war. Think of those things that would otherwise be a big problem, as an escape from reality...
hmm...I think I am repeating myself. :(
Ermmm... anyway... I loved the chapter. :) More please. :)
