I just wanted to review this here since sometimes it seems like stories don't get reviews until they get reviews, if that makes any sense.
I thought this was a really interesting character study of Hermione, with all her strengths and flaws, keeping her more realistic than she sometimes is in fanfic. I also really liked that the roles you had for Parvati and Luna; it's kind of sad but despite how much fic is written by women the female characters sometimes come off as mere foils for the male characters. So this was great to see them as competent, smart, capable, and not just being reactionary to the men.
Also, I liked that it was Hermione keeping things from moving forward with Ron. Far too often the woman just waits around and the relationship, or lack thereof, is entirely dependent on the man.
