Letters to Ron
In which Ron is charming

xxx

Dear Ron,

I don't see how blowing up Bill's curse breaking books is funny. Honestly, haven't you realised after so many years around me how important books are? Fred and George should really apologise. They should know better really. Oh wait, what am I saying? Fred and George definitely wouldn't have known better. You, on the other hand, are a prefect! Do I have to constantly remind you that you should be setting an example? I'm sure your mum would agree with me on that.

Anyway, I've been having quite a boring summer to be honest. I enjoy spending time with my parents, really! But it gets a bit stale after a while what with them alternating between asking me about school and suggesting dinner outside. I feel a bit sorry actually, they're my parents but it seems like they're so detached from the way I live my life. I marvel at the fact that they continually let me go to Hogwarts, year after year, knowing that I'm slipping further and further away from them. Oh, I really shouldn't bore you any more about this.

I hope you're enjoying your summer a lot more than me. Can't wait till I get to the Burrow!

Love, Hermione.

Dear Hermione,

I didn't think it would be possible, but you've proven me wrong (yet again)! You've managed to give me a lecture even though we're miles away from each other. Yes, I realise I'm a Prefect, Fred and George have no problems reminding me really. I'm insulted you think I'm not setting a good example! I'll have you know that after Fred and George blew up the books, I only laughed for a good 5 minutes. I stopped laughing even before Bill! Then, I helped Bill with picking up the pieces. See? The influence you have on me is really, really scary.

About your parents, I don't think I'll ever understand how they do it. How they willingly let you go away for a good part of the year, learning about something they can't possibly ever understand. But I'm glad they do it, otherwise who's going to constantly nag at Harry and I to finish our homework? Who's going to keep us informed on elf rights? Who's going to keep us awake in class? Who's going to lend us notes to copy? Who's going to keep us from failing? Who's going to provide us with some insight that is the other rather confusing gender? I could go on forever, but since I'm about running out of parchment, I better stop now.

Besides quidditch training with Ginny, the twins, Charlie and Bill, when he's not on some date with Fleur, nothing much has been going on. Wish you would get here soon, bet you'll be able to think of something to do!

Love, Ron.

P.S. I'm glad you're spending time with your parents in England. And not in some other country.

xxx

Dear Ron,

Yes, I'm still in England you prat. Where did you think I'll be? Hmm? Bulgaria? Honestly, you know Victor is just a friend, I'm beginning to think you're only being annoying about this whole issue because it's become a habit. I'm not Ginny, therefore you have no right to boss me around and inquire about my love life (or lack thereof, for goodness sakes, hanging around you and Harry have just about obliterated any chances I might have had at one actually). Wait scratch that, even if you are Ginny's brother, she's old enough to make her own decisions so stop trying to tell her who she should or should not date.

Oh by the way, will it be alright if I come to the Burrow next weekend? I know Harry's not due there till a few days later, but I thought it'll be nice if it could just be you and me and Ginny of course, for a while? Harry is going to be really moody when he comes around I expect and we might need to talk about it beforehand.

Love, Hermione.

Dear Hermione,

I'm not going to lie to you, I nearly burnt your letter when I started reading it, what do you mean I have no right to boss you around? You don't see me complaining when you boss me around! And, it's a good thing too that you hang around Harry and I all the time, I'm telling you none of the other blokes in Hogwarts are good enough for you, so you really aren't missing much. You should hear what those gits say about you, I swear I wanted to wash their mouths out with soap. I didn't though, it would have reminded me too much of my mum. That'll be horrible, if I ever turn out like my mum. And wrong on so many levels.

Fortunately, the later part of the letter was your saving grace. Of course you can come next weekend! You can come now if you wanted to! I'm nearly dying of boredom over here. Charlie is busy with his dragons and Romania and this muggle girl down the road, Bill is busy with Fleur, the twins are busy doing things I don't even want to know about and Ginny is busy, while being a girl I suppose. I haven't been interfering in her love life recently (are you happy now?) and she actually asked me what was wrong! Honestly, when I badger her about those blokes she's been going out with, she threatens me with her bat bogey hex and now that I haven't been asking her about them, she's convinced that I've either been put under the imperius curse or an imposter altogether. I would never ever understand girls. Why can't you lot just be happy?

Love, Ron

Dear Ron,

I most certainly do not boss you around!

I've asked Mum and Dad and they have said I could go over tomorrow. Expect me around 9 in the morning.

Love, Hermione

P.S. Hmm, alright I concede that this letter may sound a bit bossy, but I normally do not sound like that!

'Mione,

So what have you been doing lately?

Ron

xxx

Ron,

Why are you writing me when we spend almost all our waking hours together? Do I need to remind you we're at Hogwarts and I'm in all of your classes?

Hermione

xxx

The same reason why you replied me.

Ron

xxx

Ron,

Oh you think you're so clever now do you? Fine, I'll indulge you. I've been going for classes, with you and Harry and the rest of the Gryffindor sixth years. I've been paying attention and unfortunately, I cannot speak for you and Harry on that matter. How on earth you guys manage to scrape through each year is beyond me. I've been to the library every day and you and Harry really should follow my lead on that, it's the only place you guys will be able to study. No distractions. I've been sitting at quidditch practices, watching the both of you riding dangerously on a broomstick and taking no safety precautions whatsoever. There, that about sums up my life now, but you would know wouldn't you? You were there. Well, except for the library part.

Hermione

'Mione,

You try to sound infuriated with me but I notice you seem to always be smiling when you receive my letters during breakfasts! Ha.

And I thought it'll be important to point out that Harry and I don't scrape through each year, we do fairly decently! Considering the amount of time we spend not paying attention in class, you could say we were almost geniuses really! But I suppose you would have to take credit for that one. Some of your brilliance must have rubbed off on the both of us after all.

I wouldn't deny that quidditch is dangerous, but if you would only get on a broom and realise just what it is like to fly, you'll see that it's ruddy worth the occasional bruising and broken bone. Ginny loves to fly and is better than half of the population here I might add, and since you both share so many common interests (that is, driving both Harry and I crazy with your infallible female logic) then it will stand to reason that you'll love flying too! I'll lend you my broom, and I wouldn't mind teaching you. It'll be fun! I promise I wouldn't let anything bad happen to you!

Ron

Ron,

You and I have very different definitions for the word 'fun'. For example, you would think riding a broom and possibly plummeting hundreds of feet to the ground and death will be 'fun'. I think a trip to the library and finding a book that could possibly add another inch to my essay will be 'fun'. Alright, maybe I wouldn't classify that as 'fun' but it'll be a much preferable way to spend my day instead of dying on a piece of wood.

Ginny is cool. She can do stuff like that and still possess female logic. Sometimes I wonder why she isn't my favourite Weasley.

How do you know I've been smiling at your letters (not that I have, mind you! Your eyes must be deceiving you), have you been watching me Ronald?

Hermione

'Mione,

Just who is your favourite Weasley? Could I hazard a guess? Surely not Bill! He's incredibly good looking and all, but he's with Fleur! And if I do recall correctly, you don't like her! And thus, Bill is guilty by association. Charlie? You don't like dragons 'Mione, so I suppose that's another guilty by association charge. I don't even have to worry about Percy do I? Although I suppose you guys have much in common. Oh crap, the more I think about it, the more possible this could be. Oh wait, I just remembered Percy is an incredible git that told me to cut off all contact with Harry, and so seeing how Harry is our best pal and all, he can't possibly be your favourite! You can't see it but I'm doing a victory dance around the dorm room now. The twins? Surely not! I can almost see your scandalised expression. Well then, there's only one Weasley left isn't there?

Well, just so you know, you're my favourite Granger.

So what if I have been watching you? You sit directly opposite me every breakfast. A bit difficult not to don't you think? Besides, I quite enjoy the view.

Ron

P.S. The flying offer still stands Granger!

xxx

Ron,

How could you forget your parents? Mrs. Weasley is by far my favourite. She makes the most excellent treacle pudding.

The day I go flying is the day you enter the library without any suggestions/yelling from me of any kind.

Your favourite Granger

P.S. I'm starting to think you're too charming to be Ron. Who are you and what have you done to my best friend?

xxx

Ohohohoho, Ron's a bit flirty no? I like to think he finally got some sense knocked into him. A review would be very nice!
