"This wasn't about me or him as separate individuals anymore; this was about us as a couple and the last thing I wanted was to reject something as essential to him as his name. I wanted to be the same as him. Love, it seemed, made the difference between feeling forced into changing my name and willingly wanting to accept my new role within his family."
Funny how Ron doesn't feel moved to change his name, or hyphenate it...does he not love Hermione that much? Or is it that Hermione is just buckling under to a patriarchal tradition and is justifying it with love? I'm quite tired of hearing how women keeping their own names is "rejecting" love or marriage. It's ridiculous.
The sunburn was hilarious and painful--it made me recall some bad burns of my own. Definitely a mood-killer on a honeymoon. I liked the way they had to go home to catch a break (and finally shag). :)
Author's Response: Hi there! Thanks for reading and reviewing with a thought-provoking comment. On the whole, I agree that it is tiring to hear about how a woman who keeps her name is rejecting love or some other such crap. I guess the reason I put it in there is because I felt like Hermione would want to feel like she belongs to the Weasley family. As independent as she is, she also doesn't appear to particularly enjoy being an outsider... *shrugs* That was my take- for this fic, at any rate. I'm glad the part about the sunburn amused you and that you enjoyed their escape back home. Thanks again for the thoughtful comment! *pumpkin pie for you*

Aww geez, Risie, don't stop there!! Sequel, sequel! Or any stories from you, in fact. A Risie update always brightens my day. Honestly, Wednesday is always a terrible day for me- 15 hours of work- but today, I thought, "meh, least I had a R/Hr pick-me-up from Risie!"
Author's Response: Well, aren't you just the sweetest thing?! Thanks so much for the wonderful pick-me-up in MY day that I got from reading your lovely review! I really appreciate the support and I'm glad it cheered you up... I'll keep the Wednesday thing in mind. ;o) *brownies for you*

Is this brand new or have I missed it being posted somewhere else? *ponders*
Funny, cute and adorable, very much like you, Risie! (If I flatter you will it make up for the appauling lack of concrit in the review?) lol
Author's Response: Sarah!!! *snuggles you so tightly until you can barely breathe* Nope, it was new at the time... thanks so much for reading and reviewing! :o) I'm very glad you liked it. *snorts* You're very cute- you know that, right? *chocolate sundae for you*

aww, poor ron and hermione! As a swede I know how bad it can rain in the summer. It's either pouring rain or blazing sun it seems!
Author's Response: Hi there! Thanks for reading and reviewing! I'm glad, as a Swede, you thought the portrayal of the weather was realistic- that's a relief! :o) *chocolate chip cookies for you*
