This Harry is the biggest a--hole in history, yet he ends up with everything that he wants anyway, even though he did nothing to deserve it.  Too bad Ginny didn't have more self-respect instead of letting Harry walk all over her.

Also, thank God Ron broke up with Hermione.  She never made him a priority in her life...he was always second behind Harry or her job.  He deserves someone who actually cares about him as much as he cares about her.  Now he's free to find someone better, which won't be that hard to find at all.

Yes, it was a great opportunity for Hermione, and she was perfectly within her rights to take it.  But she chose her career over Ron, plain and simple.  And while that was her right, it was Ron's right to end it.  It's clear that he would never be her first choice.  He's right when he was thinking of what it would be like if Hermione was his wife...she would never think he was good enough, and she would always be looking for the next big thing.  What happens when the next big opportunity comes along?  She'd just leave Ron again.

Ron made the right choice.  Being in a relationship with him shouldn't be to the convenience of the other person.

One more thing...Hermione sure is quick to assume the worst about Ron.  This chapter is practically Ron-bashing, with the way everyone gangs up on him.

Date: 02/10/2012 Title: Chapter 12: Checkmated

I figured out how to describe this story...disappointing (nothing personal!).  The writing really is good--the pace, the bantering, the tone--but the most memorable trait of this story is what it lacks.

 It lacks an ending for one.  It lacks true characterizations (how is Hermione so experienced with flirting?).  It lacks a strong reason for why Ron would forgive Harry or Hermione so suddenly.  It lacks a reason for why Ron takes all the blame for the H/Hr hookup, and why he's the only one who has to apologize.

I'll admit that I'm a R/Hr fan, so I was never going to like Harry sleeping with Hermione.  But I've read stories like that before and I've gotten past it...but not here.  Harry and Hermione are just so unlikeable in this story.  Truly.  I mean, seeing Harry blame Ron for Harry shagging Hermione...best friends don't sleep with the girl the friend is in love with, and then blame the other friend.  That's something Malfoy does.  "It's your fault I fell in and out and in and out of her!" 

I mean, seeing Harry's reaction completely destroys any credibility for Harry and Ron's relationship to get back on track.  Harry betrayed Ron, lied about it, and then got angry at Ron when Ron found out!  Lol, are you serious?  I'd love to know what your thought process was and if you think 2 males could reconcile over this in real life lol.  With Harry's complete lack of contrition, I don't think so, but this is fiction I guess.

Also, Hermione is so bipolar.  She wants Ron to love her, but on her terms.  Everyone gets angry at Ron for having fun with other girls, but Hermione's within her rights to shag Harry and then gloat about it when Ron gets upset?  What a complete lack of tact.  Ron can't say I love you in the heat of the moment...does he need to be riding on a stallion?  Why would I root for them to get together as a couple when she's so irritating?  I was really hoping for them to break up at the end, which I never do.

I also read in a review that you didn't care about either boy's actions but sympathized with Hermione...why does Hermione deserve sympathy?  She just sat on her arse waiting for Ron to come to her; she never did anything about it.  Isn't she all about the equality of the sexes...why can't she tell Ron she likes him instead of this crap about "needing" to shag someone to feel something?  I just don't get it...it makes her seem like a self-centered teenager (which she still is), but it conflicts heavily with the attempted portrayal of her as someone deep in love. 

And I think it's a bit of a shame that you didn't care about the boys' reactions...I think the story suffers from it, because there is no cause and effect in the last half of the story.  It just exists with no emotional or physical framework.

Anyway, there's my review.  You probably don't care what I have to say lol, which is fine, but I had to say it for my own sanity.  This story could have been quite good, but the cognitive dissonance fostered by the H/Hr fallout mortally wounded this story...but that's just my non-expert opinion!  I'm sure you could still out-write me...as long as there's no H/Hr lol.

Date: 02/10/2012 Title: Chapter 8: Shameless Advances

This story is sort of veering off the road here...they just started snogging but now they're head over heels with each other?  Hermione's started to freak out because Ron hasn't said "I love you" within the first 5 minutes of kissing her?

It seems like I've stumbled into a Gossip Girl story or something.  Hopefully things will get more rational/believable in future chapters.



Author's Response: Well I can for sure tell you it does not. :) This was my first story, written literally ten years ago, and yes it is majorly flawed. I'm still rather fond of it, though, but don't mind if you aren't. :)

I find Harry's suggestion to Ron--dragging Hermione into a closet to snog her--ironic.  Harry knows it would work because he already tried it...except when Harry took Hermione in there, she was the one with the cream filling, not the eclair.  Somehow I don't think Ron would give Harry a medal if he knew where Harry got the idea.

This story was ridiculous.  I can buy Harry and Hermione getting together in that limbo they were in.  But Ron forgiving them both?  Ron hated Viktor for just writing letters to Hermione, but he and Harry are still best mates?   Ron's biggest weakness is his insecurity, and he's going to be with Hermione when she tells him that she's in love with Harry, too?  Are you kidding me? 

Author's Response: It's called character growth. Ron is not the same man at the end of this story that he was in the beginning, much less in the early parts of OotP. Sorry it didn't work for you.

Midnight Confessions by alloy Rated: MT - Mature Themes starstarstarstarhalf-star [Reviews - 58]
Summary: “I love you Hermione Granger,” he whispered, wishing he had the courage to say it to her properly, to her face.

“Then why are you snogging Lavender Brown?” Came an unexpected reply.

In the infirmary Ron & Hermione come to an understanding, but not before they make their 'Midnight Confessions' and in that brief period before Bill's wedding Ron takes charge of his life planning a future with the woman he loves.

Date: 07/28/2011 Title: Chapter 25: Look at You That Way

This was the dumbest fanfic chapter I've ever read.  I knew I should have skipped it when I read that Leviathan had a hand in writing it--I've never seen an author with such a fundamental misunderstanding of the characters he writes about.

This chapter has tainted the considerable amount of charm this story had to this point.  Hermione is married to Ron, but encourages Harry to flirt with her?  And then she gets angry with Ron for being jealous?  And Harry looks lustfully at his best friend's wife?  Well, why should Ron be jealous...it's not like his best friend and wife are flirting and checking each other out and seeing each other without clothes on behind his back.  Is it possible to roll eyes and groan in a review? 

Lol, none of that makes any sense!  But I mean, of course Harry and Hermione and Ron will all be attracted to each other.  They're typical teenagers, right?  And we all know that every teenager is automatically sexually attracted to every other teenager they come in contact with.  It's a known fact that no teenager has ever a friend whom they haven't slept with.  Especially the three average teenagers we have in this chapter, who embody every cliche about teenagers and who have never done anything noteworthy like save the world.  Nope, they're just like everbody else!  Lol, while we're at it, let's have them smoke pot, get drunk, and hookup in the tent, because that's also something every teenager does. 

I mean, I just can't believe that someone wrote this with a serious intent!  It makes me laugh, because this chapter is...dumb.  There's really no other word for it.  This is a dumb chapter, a chapter which gets its defining quality from one of its authors.

My Husband, My Lover, My Friend. by alloy Rated: RT - Restricted Themes starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 6]
Summary:  He carries me over the threshold. Once I would have balked at the idea, but not today, not for him. Despite my protestations he only lets me down once we reach the bedroom, on the bed, a giant four poster, red curtains gold trim and an encompassing scarlet canopy. "I dreamt of you." He had said blushing, "Behind red curtains and silencing spells." I was too shy to confess the same.

I was pleased to see that Hermione apologized to Ron and acknowledged why he was upset.  That was gracious of her.

It's so funny to see Ron put his foot in his mouth without even saying anything!  He can bollucks something up by saying something, not saying something, writing, not writing...

Loved the Ron and Bill conversation.  And Ron reading/writing poetry?  Nice touch.  I always hate it when Ron is depicted as an idiot incapable of even speaking in complete sentences, etc.

I soooooo hope that Draco and his father get their comeuppance.  Draco aids the people that killed the headmaster and he can return after writing some letters?  I demand justice, lol!  (I'd be fine with more torture... er, should I have admitted that?)

Also, I always thought Harry was daft in his reasonings for breaking up with Ginny.  Perhaps he thought he was what made her noticeable... not her red hair, or family, or...  Anyway, Harry, do everyone a favor and just get back with her.
