Tag!

So I saw you had posted last in the review tag and jumped at the chance since I had to read this chapter still.

I have to begin my review by saying that Hermione is my favorite canon character and Ron/Hermione is my OTP. I think this was a brilliant portrayal of her. She was every bit the Hermione of canon, but shown in a different light. Of course in canon we only see what Harry sees of her. Her strength, her brains, her temper. She's a force in the story, and we don't often (save for yule ball and her tears at Ron and Lavender snogging) see the soft, more feminine side of her. It was lovely to see her weakness. She was afraid and unsure and everything I'd think she'd have to be. Her thoughts about dying were very surprising, but not unwarranted. Her thoughts about Ron were sweet and I adored reading them.

All in all I think this was a fabulous chapter. I may have preferred it a bit over the Ginny chapter if only becuase it was Hermione-centric. It's really hard to come across believable, canon compliant, Hogwarts era characterization of her. Kudos.

Author's Response: Yay! Oh, I love review tag :)

I do this thing lately where I try out new characters and really can't help but love them as a result. Hermione is no exception, and not just because I see so much of myself in her. I wanted to really explore her vulnerability, because I can't imagine holding all the pressure that she does in the series (having to live up to being 'the brightest witch of her age' all the time) and not collapsing under it. I thought it would be in character for her to have that collapse in the middle of the night when no one can see her break down at last. All in all, I'm very happy that you found the portrayal realistic and liked the Ronmione. I really did enjoy writing those happy moments.

Thanks so much, Mel! Kudos from you means a lot to me. I appreciate you stopping by!
