Oh Celeste. ♥

Please write more Ron/Hermione (actually, please just write more EVERYTHING). Your writing is so beautiful and natural at the same time, and I think you're able to get these characters and their interaction right while also bringing a really poetic feeling to it that a lot of people wouldn't be able to pull off - because frankly, when people try to get too poetic and schmaltzy with this ship, it just comes off as OOC and overdone. As much as I love R/Hr, and as much as I love writing them, they can be really difficult to get right.

Like I said when we were Skyping at the most unholy hour of 3 AM, I really love when this ship is written without actual romance per se. Their closeness and the way they understand and relate to one another - where you can see the feelings brewing but not actually being expressed in an overtly sentimental way - is part of what makes this ship so appealing. Traditional "romance" with this ship is, to me, not as satisfying.

So I really like the direction you chose to go with this. On the surface they're just arguing about something completely stupid, and Ron is having a weird reaction to something very trivial, but you can see the subtext and it's so touching.

I really loved the part when she asks him, "How do you even know it's me?" and he responds, "Don't you know when it's me?" Because we all know that she DOES know when it's him. It's a really lovely illustration of that kind of connection I think we all wish we could have with someone.

Well done Ronmione makes me seriously happy - it's such a rare thing to find, and that is sad. So I was so glad to read this. All sorts of warm and fuzzies.

Author's Response: Oh Melanie.

I'm still embarrassed this is one my author page, but I'm fearing your general Ronmione wrath and I like the banner too much to delete it off and sent it to the scrap where it belongs.

Skyping at the most unholy hour of 3 leads to some strangeness - most of which was culminated in this one-shot. I squeed pretty hard at the traditional romance bit, which was exactly what I was writing against (before I remembered this was set in fifth year and probably has nothing to do with my abilities - they didn't have a romance at that point in the first place! Sigh.)

Sending more warmth and Ronmione love and fuzzies your way!

Celeste
