Disclaimer: Nope, they're still not mine. In fact, I really wish they'd just go away and leave me alone!

Author's Note: So…here is my THIRD Harry Potter story. I wish these ideas would quit plaguing me, so I could concentrate on my Angel-fic. I mean really, how many different ways can I make Ron and Hermione confess their feelings for each other, anyway?

Anyhoo…enjoy. Much as I complain, I'm kind of enjoying it, myself. They can just be so cute together, can't they? ;) And if they act a little more mature in my fics than in the books, please just remember that they take place in 7th year, when they're all 17.
