Perhaps, in March 2007, a lot of the ideas they see in the first 3 chapters of "Dumbledore's Army" are old hat, but that's because this story helped to start the post-OotP genre. It could not be less accurate than to call this story 'cliche'! Grrrr!
Sorry to vent on you, T. Just wanted you to know that this story was and is excellent, and is definitely not "old hat" or "cliche".
- A new addition to one of my favourite Dr. T stories! Nice, although the affirmation of love right at the end caught me by surprise ... no introspection from Ron beforehand on his thoughts for Hermione that allowed us to see any dawning realisation that he loved her, just 'bang!' a statement out of the blue. Likewise for Hermione.
Enjoyed the bit with Luna and Ginny!

Hermione and Harry I can visualize from several different standpoints, and up until book six (which I still think was dreadful) it was even canon. Ron and Hermione, though, seems like a recipe for disaster from the get-go. Are there relationships like that? Of course there are, tons of them, maybe even the majority of them in the teen years (although I hope not). But with Hermione portraying such a strong character in the earlier books, it really hurts to see her turn into another brain-dead bimbo when her hormones kick in. On those grounds alone Dumbledore Army loses me, no matter how well it works in other ares.
