This was beautiful, wow. I got really choked up and had to step back and take some deep breaths when I finished. It's just brilliant. It took me a bit to figure out who was speaking and who was being talked about, but that's fine. It drew me in and made me want to read on to find out what was happening.

I love this portrayal of Ron. It's so different from how he is usually seen, but still very much in character for him, at least if he were in this situation. The little details about how he ties on the apron and struggles to do the girls' hair were perfect. It paints a picture that I can definitely see in my mind.

I also think the choice to tell it from his son's perspective was a very good one. Somehow it makes it more heartwrenching to hear it all from someone else's perspective. Someone who notices things Ron might not have and gives a more unbiased version of events.

I love (am I overusing that word? Sorry...) that you included Crookshanks and Ron making peace and finding solace in their mutual mourning. That's the kind of brilliant details that really make a story.

The ending, as the entire story, was just perfect.

Thank you so much for sharing this.

Author's Response: *blushes* Thank you so much. This review is incredible! And I'm so ashamed it's taken me so long to reply to it. All I can say is life has been INSANE this last year.

I'm so glad you liked my rather unothodox approach to who was telling the story, and the fact I never really mentioned any names, at least of the two main characters. It just felt like it needed to be written that way.

To me, this is Ron. I know he can be a goof and a little clumsy, but I also think there's SO much more to him. And I think he would be a wonderful father.

I had this story in my mind for a long time, but I couldn't ever write it until I found the right voice to tell it. Once I figured out WHO should tell it, it just sort of flowed out onto the paper. Funny how that happens, isn't it?

And how could I have a Ron/Hermione story without Crookshanks? *Kinda a sucker for that cat*

Thank you again for such a wonderful review! I seriously have warm fuzzies reading it again!
