Ron Weasley, an aging quidditch player in the biggest game of his career, looks back at where his life changed for the better and the worse.
Nicely Done! And a well written wrap up to Ron's career. I will admit that I half expected Ron to die in the hoops, but the story works well as written.
Congratulations on your original work being published, and when I get some spare cash, I'll be sure to pick up a copy.
I can't believe somebody rated this story a trainwreck! What the hell is wrong with people?

WOW I don't really care for Ron but that was a very good story.

Damn, Jim, that was good! No question here that you can do depth of character: pitiless without undue bashing. It's Ron Weasley, all right. Very well done.
Best I've read in a long time

You're the Man. Past and present. Everything you write is golden, and that certainly includes your original work. As long as you're busy writing, i don't care what it is. I'll read it, and even pay the atrocious import fees if i have to.

Good story, I don't think I have seen one like it. At most, one with small parts of it. I do like the idea of the wand being a portkey to the auror's office.
It was rated a train wreck by a person who either hated Ron, HG, or loved RH.

Damn, that was a good one. Ron made some major mistakes (then again, when you're involved in major events, even your mistakes become major) but he has matured and he's obviously smart enough, now, to go out on a high note. I did rather like his approach to resolving Padma's problem, don't go to "just" a cursebreaker, go to someone with the clout, power, and skill to really get it done.
I know those who despise Ron (and there are many) won't like it, but you've presented him as a man, warts and all, and shown his mature true nature, even if maturing it took rather longer than for most.
