Actions have consequences, even if you're not aware of them. Harry saved Hermione's life their first year at Hogwarts. Now she has returned the favor and has no reason to stay by his side, or does ...
- Nice, and as valid a reason for Hermione showing any interest in Ron as I've seen. I do expect they'll not wait now that they've admitted their real feelings and come, and cum, to an agreement. Ron's going to be just SOL when he returns and who's going to care?

Author's responsewhen you say, "whole", do you mean a plot hole? If that's the case, then no. Hermione got into trouble in this story because she unintentionally tried to fulfill her life debt and that created her problem. Ginny, on the other hand, is a pureblood daughter of purebloods. I would not be surprised if Molly (nee Prewitt) Weasley and Arthur explained life debts to her in great detail, so she would be unlikely to trigger it in such a way.
