I can sympathise hugely with Ron and Ginny in this story, as something similar [but not nearly as painful] has recently happened to me - I was with a guy for about 7 months, and I ended the relationship (God knows why - I didn't stop liking him lol) and then a couple of months later he started going out with my best friend. Neither of them knew how I felt about it, but it completely crushed me. S'all good now, though, I like someone else ;-]
Poor, poor Ron. I can't imagine how it would feel for him to have Hermione marrying Harry - if I was him I'd be a total wreck!
And, like you, I think Ron and Hermione are meant to be together. =[
I liked the way you handled the whole 'sidekick' thing, it made Ron sound so sad. I just want to give him a huge hug and tell him it will all be OK!
It WILL all be OK won't it?! Tell me there's another chapter coming!
I look forward to it, anyway.
10/10 for a great story. Well done.
Author's Response: It's an odd thing about awesome reviews. They're so fun to read and yet, so hard to respond to. This definitely fit in the "awesome" category though! :-)
Aww, did I really make you relate like that? That's a lovely compliment. That must have been terrible, but I'm glad you're through it now. It's such a wonderful thing when people are able to relate with your (or interpretations other's) characters, so thank so much! That means a lot and I'm really glad you told me. Sometimes, it's nice to find out we're not alone after all and I love the characters I use, so it's nice when others love them too!
Poor Ron, indeed-Harry marrying Hermione! :-( And yes, Ron and Hermione are MEANT to be with each other, even though a few Harmony shippers would probably disagree.
I want to hug Ron too! A few people thought I was portraying Ron too "angsty", but I'm glad you didn't think so. Well, I had to tie in the title somehow, didn't I? I feel so bad for torturing Ron so much-I'm working on a R/Hr fluff right now, but it's harder than I thought it would be, for a drama writer! :P
Hmm...yes, it will be okay, but not in the way everyone is probably expecting. You didn't get back with your guy, did you? And yes, *cheers* there is another chapter coming! I'm almost done, so it will definitely be up soon. Nothing really happens, but a great deal more does in 3, so I might post those two together, if I can write 3 quickly. Don't want people getting too bored, though, if I may say so myself, the 3rd chapter IS funny!
So glad you're enjoying it so far! This is one of my more "controversial" fics, so it means so much to me when people enjoy it so much. Thanks SO much also for the kind rating and review-I will have to more throughly review more of your stories now, just because I feel guilty for leaving a fairly short one for you, after you giving me such a nice, sweet, long one!
