Tilting the Potterverse onto the path it should have taken post-OotP. Some minor Ron!Bashing. H/Hr. Rating for language.
(#) jabarber69 2008-08-04 09:49:55 PMexcellent story but why the hell would you post something with all the sentences and paragraphs so damn close together...I personally would be to embarrassed to do something that stupid!
Author's responseI've posted on several different sites before now, and none of them had that problem. So, logic dictates that it's because of Ficwad.
And please, keep comments calling someone rampantly stupid to yourself. There's no point in telling me that, since I'll just ignore you.
(#) MagnaMorbius 2008-08-04 11:50:17 PMBriliant story. It's nice to see a Molly Weasley who isn't either a manipulative, potion-dosing plotter or someone who thinks that children need to be wrapped in cotton-wool.
Author's responseTo be honest, I've written my share of evil bitch Molly, and potion wielding Molly. This is the first time I've ever written a nice Molly. The Molly as is implied in canon, but we don't really see. I still love stories where she's an evil, manipulative, potion-wielding bitch. They're just too fun to pass up.

For some reason, I’ve always thought of Hermione as being a dirty talker or getting turned on by dirty talk. It just seems to fit.
I would’ve liked to have heard what happened to Ron in the epilogue; to see how correct Harry’s assumption of Ron’s future would be.
Thanks for sharing

Author's responsePersonally, I reckon Hermione, when she takes off her shoes at the end of the day, turns into an absolute little minx (an impression really NOT helped by Emma Watson's performance, since she looks like she could be absolute filth under the right circumstances). I really could see timid little Hermione being a Peugeot... the ride of your life.
(#) rusty32539 2008-08-05 04:46:22 PMGreat Story, I think this is the first story I have ever read where Molly gets him to choose Hermione. Most storys have her as a HP/GW supporter going so far as to love potions and other controling substances. Great work in general just a little short, wish you would write a story to fill in the time skip.
- Just to echo the others, quite a novel and refreshing take on Molly. It actually caught me off guard.
The Ron-slap down was vivid but also believable. In canon, he had also argued without thinking and almost instantly regretted it. His approach to Hermione as an object was very much in character. And Harry, while angry, wasn't over the top. A subtle difference that a lot of Ron-bashing misses.
The smut was well done. And appreciated.
The only 'odd' thing was Snape. Yes he was a jerk, but he was a nice jerk. And a little too open (for his character) in explaining his dislike of Harry. But that is nothing more than a minor quibble.
All in all, a very fun, moving, and enjoyable story
that was pretty hot - and you it was the very best tirade I've ever heard (or read) - and the best of all - Ron was on the receiving end.....I always thought of him as a grateless git!!
....oh...and I love to read stories without typos or spelling and grammar mistakes - unfortunately there are not very much to find....
So thank you for a great story
