A nice snapshot. I like how it's easy for them to acknowledge what they feel for each other. After the deaths and drama it would feel wrong for them to continue dancing around one another. Not to say that they won't argue and fight often.

Author's Response: That's very kind of you, thank you! And I definitely agree. It's not likely that their dynamic would change much in the long-run, but immediately after the war I can't see them continuing to ignore their feelings about one another.

I loved this!!! I think that you really captured the characters and how they act. There wasn't any fluff and it was believable that this could have happened. I can see why you won an award for it! Congratulations!! Please keep writing!!! :]

Author's Response: wow, thank you! This review made my day! I'm glad you liked the story and found it believable. haha, I appear to be suffering from permanent writer's block... but hopefully I'll get over that eventually and post something new. thanks again!

OHHHHHH!!!

Lol, that was my first reaction when I finished this. I curse myself for having taken so long to read it.

So, I really like this story. I got sick of Ron/Hermione fics a long time ago, because they were so overdone and focused so much and the big sappy things, like their first kiss or something like that. But in this story they didn't even kiss, and they don't even leave off as an official couple. Wonderfully different.

I like your writing. It flows in an uncomplicated and very lovely way.

the minutes bleeding into one another until time became lost.

I really loved that line. The dialogue was really great too. It wasn't overly emotional, but it still got all of the issues out and everything that was meant to be said was.

This is one of the only things I didn't like;

Sighing, he focused his gaze on the lake, staring until all he could see was an endless sea of blue and green.

I just didn't like the repetition of the sound 'see' so close. That's the only little thing.

So, you're probably going to hear this all over again, 'cause I'm going to finally post in SBBC a discussion for your fic. Sorry! But, anyway, great job! It was really adorable and sad and lovely.

Author's Response: Thank you so much, Mia! Ahh, I agree with the 'see' line - I'm really picky about things like that, so thanks for pointing it out [see, this is why I should get a beta, *facepalm*]. I really appreciate your feedback, and I'm glad you liked it! And, no worries about the SBBC - procrastination is my middle name, and I'm only joking like 20% when I say that.

Rachel, can I say that I really love this? Your writing is extremely pleasing, easy to follow and yet so deeply touching! I love the characterzation; normally I don't read Ron/Hermione because of all the cliches, but this is pure delight!

Author's Response: Thank you so much, Alice! I'm glad you like it! *hugs*

So, am I allowed to copy and paste my discussion in here, because all I did in that was basically gush about how amazing this is. I know you will read this and read that and find many similarities, actually, all similarities, but I will go ahead just so you can get excited about a new review!

This was brilliant. I think that this and Suya's Beautiful in the Morning Light will be the two fics that I will never get tired of reading. Everything about this is just amazing. I think really, after looking back on my discussion and on the story (after reading it for I think the fifth time?), what makes me love this so much is your style. The flow and sentence style and word choice and characterization and just everything is amazing. There is never too much or too little (I'm pretty sure I used that exact phrase in my discussion *whoops*).

The one thing I can say that I gained from this story is the original fondness I had for this pairing. I must admit, I was never one to truly want these two together, but here we are, and I have never liked it in fanfiction. But this story had made me actually want to find those few and far between well written Ron/Hermione stories that make the two characters as perfect as you have. And here I go with 'perfect' again. I'm just going to stop here, and leave with a...

You. Are. An. Amazing. Writer.

Author's Response: Omg, Kat, thank you! *blushes* Seriously, between this and your discussion, I don't know how much more my ego can take before I become insufferable. Hee. I'm glad this warmed you up to Ron/Hermione... not because I love the ship, which I don't, but because I find that to be high praise from a non R/Hr shipper. ;) Anyway, I responded to most of your points in my discussion [which I still have to finish before posting], so I'll just leave this off by saying, again, thank you! I really appreciate all of your comments, and I'm extremely glad that you enjoyed this! *hugs*

aw, what a great little post-war snapshot. You captured the characters and their relationship really well and I had tears in my eyes by the end.
I found this story through the QSQ nomination thread - I hope you win!

Author's Response: thank you so much! your praise means a lot to me. :)

I must insist, Rachel, that you write more Ron/Hermione. You pwn at this pairing.

Under any other circumstances, it would have been a beautiful day. This is a great opening line. Immediately we know that something is wrong, that something terrible has come in and made a beautiful day suddenly not beautiful. I love the image of Ron sitting by the lake and plucking fistfuls of grass. First off, ‘pluck’ and ‘fistful’ are just two words that don’t really go together, but here they work really, really well. I just love the juxtaposition of those two words. (Shut up, yes, I’m praising two words. -shifty-)

Okay, I’m about to say something that will sound ridiculous coming from me, but I think you’ve gone a bit semicolon and dash happy in this fic. There just seem to be a lot of semicolons and dashes, and as much as I adore both those pieces of punctuation, I think they get a tad overused here. Basically I think you could have toned them down just a little without losing anything from the piece overall. Sometimes a period or a set of commas would have worked just as well, delivered the same effect.

So, as I said before, you are awesome at writing Ron/Hermione. And you’re awesome at writing Ron and Hermione, separately, as characters, so when you bring those two characters together, it works wonderfully well. I think it’s very telling of Ron’s character that he’s sitting, thinking about Fred. It shows his love for his family and how much he truly misses his brother, and also the toll that the war has taken on everyone. Of course, I got sad all over again about Fred’s death, but I suppose that’s the point.

I adore that Ron entwines his fingers with Hermione’s. Adorable, and perfect. Ron and Hermione are just heart. It’s so clear how right they are for each other in this fic. You write them so well and just really show that yes, Ron and Hermione are meant to be together. They belong together. Ron can confide in Hermione, like I don’t think he could in Harry. He’s able to tell her how he feels, and she’s able to comfort him, and it’s just…I love Ron/Hermione!

It’s always been you that I’ve admired. So much heart. I love that line, I love this fic. And I love this: And without thinking twice, Ron smiled, realising how easy it was for him to believe her. Just…love. I love this entire thing. Heart.

So, yes, I will stop before I become completely incoherent. I insist you write more Ron/Hermione, because you write it so well and the world deserves more Rachel!Ron/Hermione. The end.

Author's Response: Gah, Leanne, I can't tell you how much it makes my day to sign onto MNFF and find one of your reviews waiting for me. Yay! Well, first, hee, it's interesting that you think I'm good at this pairing, because it's not particularly my favourite. However, it is one of the more fun ones to write, I must say. And LOL, I think I'm just dash and semicolon happy in general. Believe it or not, this isn't actually my worst fic in regards to that. >.> But I'm glad you pointed it out, because it's something that I always want to work on... but sort of never remember to when I'm writing. So, yes. Basically, thank you for the most wonderful review! Your feedback is appreciated as always. *squishes*
