Chapter: Oneshot

Ooh, Carole, this is such a lovely fic! I’ve been seeing a lot of Romione graphics on tumblr lately, and reading this story reminded me of how much I liked the pairing. And, after reading Crocus, it was again nice to see romance from the perspective of older people rather than just teenagers. :D

I love how you portray the imperfections of Ron and Hermione’s relationship. I could see at first that Ron didn’t really open up to Hermione, but also that Hermione didn’t push him. Of course, given how much they bickered in canon, I'm not surprised, and it’s so nice to see a portrayal of the Romione relationship as something other than perfect. Even Ron’s joke about Hermione not leaving her office on time is something you wrote to have “an undercurrent of tension”, and again, I feel you did such a good job in relatively few words portraying them so realistically as a couple.

I’ve always enjoyed reading your Ron. It’s loyal to canon, right down to how he feels about Scorpius and his (mild) prejudice with Hufflepuff, but what I liked the most was how he was written as a father. I love how proud he is of Hugo for showing Gryffindor colours, and his protectiveness over his Rosie. More than that, though, seeing a moment of vulnerability in Ron when talking about his brother, was so lovely to read.

The ending was sweet too. It was good to see Ron associated that time with something other than death, even if he felt guilty about it. And regardless of what JKR has said in hindsight, the bit in DH when Hermione kissed Ron remains one of my favourite moments in the book. It was heartwarming too to see how Ron was still, adorably, a little nervous telling Hermione about what he was really thinking. :)

I really enjoyed this story. I’ve had such a crazy year that I haven’t had enough time for fanfic, but getting back into it, especially reading your fab work, has reminded me how much I love it.

Author's Response: Ah, Soraya, thank you so much for the review. I should have replied agaes ago, but I was in awe of the lovliness. I enjoyed writing this one. It was written in a rush, but of the moment, so I'm fond of it. Thanks again.

That was great. It's a scene between two people who are friends as well as lovers. I can only wish for a relationship like that.

Author's Response: I'm glad you saw the friendship angle because I think it's so important between Hermione and Ron as so often they're seen as complete opposites, but actually, they share the same core. Thanks for the review ~Carole~

This is so lovely, Carole. I thought I'd already reviewed, but I must have only mentioned it to you on ls. Tonight I was in the mood for Ron/Hermione and decided to read it again. Scratched my itch nicely.

I like that he isn't thinking about the deaths, at first. That's what's so incredibly complicated about the Battle, and everything post-Hogwarts really, because they got what they wanted in that Voldy is dead and life is good. But it cost so much that that life is tainted for so very many. You handled that so well, allowing Ron to find the good memory and to remind her.

Completely true that Molly will never completely heal and that many of them will slip and speak of Fred as if he is still there. Loved Hermione's explanation on that.

You've captured a beautiful moment here, and I suspect I will reread this one many times, to scratch that itch of mine. Hehe.

I noticed the dedication on this read... thanks so much!

Oh, and this may be just a coincidence, but I admit to smiling when you described Ron's face as SHROUDed. Hahaha! ~ Lori

Author's Response: It was a coincidence - hahahaha. I donl;t really think Shrouds is my canon at all, although I thought about mentioning it when I wrote High and now Uncovered by Death - ha ha. Glad you enjoyed this story,. Lori, as it was written with you in mind. :) I don;t think Molly will ever quite recover. How could she (oh, I've gone very sad now) Thanks again :) :) ~Carole~

Very well crafted. I appreciate the balance of nostalgia, sadness, positivity, and celebration.
You have a gift for insightful dialogue that doesn't bog down in text: conversations flow quickly and reveal the characters' tone nicely.
Well done.

Author's Response: Thank you very much. I';m glad you appreciate this little snapshot of their lives :D ~ Carole~

Awwwwwwwwwww...I would like to leave my review there but I sense that might not be satisfactory for you.

I loved this - it was such a nice mix of sweetness, fluffiness and a bit of sadness as well. A perfect little snapshot of their married life - showing how they would never forget some things, no matter how much time has passed but that it's also still possible to remember the good stuff with the bad. And though you showed that everything is not quite perfect, I like that this was just a moment without any tension or arguing. A perfect Friday morning Romione fix!

Author's Response: Yes, I know they bickered a lot in HP, but they weren't at each other's throats and I think once Ron felt more secure, then he'd be less prickly. Thank you for the review. It was fun writing this - ha ha - although the posting was rather annoying ... not sure you noticed :x - thanks ~Croll~

I really enjoyed this, though I suppose not much happens. They both really fit with their portrayals in the book, but have also grown up and are adults and parents of two children of their own.

Author's Response: Thank you very much for the review and I'm glad you liked the story. It was just a short snapshot moment for them, really, because yesterday was the anniversary of their first kiss. :D ~Carole~
