Andy pandy... dearest andy.

You know how to bring a huge smile to someone's face, don't you? Thanks for the dedication- it makes me squee looking at it. One day I vow, Dennis will know of you.

Okay... onto the story.

This was actually incredible. It was (to me) one of those missing moment from the story chapters. And yeah... take a machete to Fleur's accent. But- her words were powerful, and hopefully Bill listens. Eh meh.

I feel for Ron, and for me- hard to do sometimes. He was 'bad' and 'disloyal' to runaway, but wasn't it expected of him? It's how he reacts, but when push comes to shove, he always would rise to what was needed of him.

All the points Fleur brought up- are the very essence of Ron. He's not first string guy- but the one who waits in the background, and when needed comes out and does his best for the team.

It's sad that he had to hear all that- but most assuredly good that he did. Sometimes guys just need a good proverbial 'smack' to get their brains going. He sure got his.

And no... no matter how mant difficulties I have had in writing him, I have never considered him worthless. Or Spineless. Or not needed.

He's no one but Ron Weasley. Our king =)

Huggles big time young lady. Kudos on another fab story.

Author's Response: And you know how to make me smile too! :P Just look at the length of this review! And Dennis *swoons* ... LOL he's gonna think I'm some stalker lunatic! :P Obviously, I can't wait!


Ron was an idiot, wasn't he? And you're right, that's how he reacts. I'll get shot for saying this, but in some ways he's not too different from Percy. He's misunderstood and finds it difficult to explain himself. He gets angry.


And that's just the point with Ron, he does what he can and so does Hermione, but because Hermione is so clever what she can do is so often highlighted and Ron's abilities are forgotten. As Harry thinks frequently throughout the series - they don't realise how much they miss Ron until he comes back. Ultimately they need him just to keep going. I think what Fleur says most certainly focus on his victories, but for me, the most magic thing about Ron isn't that he done all those wonderful things, but rather that he's still standing there beside Harry when out of the three of them, he has the most to lose.


I think you're right - as horrible as it was, he did need to hear, because he's not worthless. Sometimes I wonder if it was an actual overheard argument, or rather something withing his own mind...imagined, you know? It would make sense for the brother he's always been jealous of to be turned into this over the top villain, and then after the thing with Hermione for him to reach out and mould the beautiful girl to stick up for him. Just a theory, though.


Thanks so much for popping over Juls and leaving such an insightful review. Weasley IS our King. :) x x x
