I never ever thought of reading a Neville/Ron. But,this one caught my eye. I am so happy i read this,its a great paring. Now I want to go write some.
Author's Response: I never thought of writing it myself until I was presented with the option in a fic exchange! :-P But I'm so glad I did because I had a lot of fun with this one! Thanks so much for reading and reviewing! I'm glad you enjoyed it! Yes! Write more Ron/Neville! And drop me a link if you do! :)

I just read (and reviewed) your other two stories. You are a really good writer. I am sure of it now because even though this is not a pairing I really wanted to think about, I still loved the writing and the emotional unfurling of the characters. Neville is so sweetly innocent and Ron is perfectly gruff and funny at the same time. Well done.
Author's Response: And you read this one too, despite it not being a pairing you really like. *is very flattered* I wrote this story for a rare pair fic exchange, and to be honest, it wasn't a pairing I ever really considered before either, but sitting down and thinking about how to make it plausible (for my own purposes as well as for my recipient) - now that was the challenge! And I really had so much fun with it, too. Part of the reason I enjoy fic exchanges is because they've forced me to look beyond my own preferences, and to try things I wouldn't have considered otherwise. I wrote this one for hp_springsmut, and for merry_smutmas I've written Stan/Lucius (yes, Stan Shunpike! :-P) and one that was Sirius/Regulus, Sirius/James and Sirius/Remus. (Sirius/Remus is my favourite pairing.) But even when I'm writing to someone else's preferences, I never lose sight of the fact that *I* have to believe the story myself. I really ended up loving this story, and I'm particularly pleased that you enjoyed it, too. Thank you, yet again! :)
