Loved this story!!  I always thought Harry and Hermione were better suited for each other than they were with Ginny and Ron. 

Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it. This was actually my first piece of NC-17 fanfic.

I really liked this story.  Despite the ending of DH, I've always thought Harry and Hermione were a far better match.  They had more in common -- both raised as Muggles until they got their Hogwarts letters, both had trouble fitting in at school -- Hermione because she was so smart and Harry because he was the Boy-Who-Lived.  Although the attraction between Ron and Hermione was obvious early on, he could never find the courage to tell her how he felt.  They argued so much in sixth year and kept missing chances to get together.  In DH, it was Hermione who made the first move to kiss Ron, not the other way around, leading me to wonder when would he ever have done it on his own?  Oh, well.  Ms. Rowling forgot to consult with me, I suppose; I could have set her straight!  :) 

Within You, Without You by mapleandmahogany Rated: RT - Restricted Themes starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 97]
Summary: Unless time had changed things very much, she knew the intense gaze of those green eyes meant that he wanted her as much as she did him.

“Gin?” Harry said, as one hand reached up to stroke her hair, too intimate for a friend.

I loved this story!!!  Very well-written, well-developed relationship between Harry and Ginny as young adults. 

Author's Response: That's really nice to hear. I was hoping to write a well developed relationship, since that's what people's complaint about her in the book is, so I attempted show it here. Thank you!

If a Man Answers by risiepookie Rated: RT - Restricted Themes starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 0]
Summary: When Ron comes back after two years, he dreads another man answering Hermione's door in the middle of the night. He certainly didn't expect the other man to be Harry. Jealousy, sex, betrayal, confusion, and heartache ensue.  Unfortunately, all is not as it should be and Ron must survive the unexpected consequences of his return, including broken relationships and promises.

I absolutely love this story!  How did I miss it?  I read the whole thing just now.  Can't wait for the next chapter.   

Despite Deathly Hallows, I always thought Harry and Hermione were more suited to each other.  Ron and Hermione fought too much, and he was always such a wimp -- afraid to ask her to the Yule Ball, afraid to tell her how he felt about her.  He was such an immature prat in Half-Blood Prince.  Harry and Hermione were both raised in the Muggle world and, it seemed to me, had more in common. 

What a delicious dilemma in your story!  Ginny's still in love with Harry, but how could she take him back knowing he'd slept with her best friend?  I don't think Harry's really in love with Hermione, not like Ron's in love with her.  But Ron brought it on himself when he disappeared like that.  He shouldn't have been surprised when Harry answered the door!  Misery loves company after all.

I anxiously await your next chapter!



Author's Response:

Hi there!  Thank you so much for reading and reviewing to let me know you enjoyed it!  I'm always very happy to have new readers.  :o) 

I think that Harry and Hermione's similarities is part of why some parts of fandom really hate the Ron/Hermione relationship.  I always thought Ron and Hermione would be good together, because their differences could compliment each other.  I think they both had a lot of growing they needed to do, which happened in HBP with the games they played with each other and also in DH in various ways.   

There really is quite a mess right now, as far as the relationships are concerned, but there is a lot more going on than meets the eye.  Misery does indeed love company, but they can't all stay there forever.  The next chapter is about starting to move on.  I'm so happy to hear you're looking forward to it!   Thanks again for reviewing to let me know some of your thoughts.  :o)  *chocolate chip ice cream for you*

Can't wait for the next update!  But I confess to hoping the story will end with the spell broken.  Will Ginny still want Harry if that happens?  Will he still want her?  I can't see anything breaking up Ron and Hermione.  You write very well!  :)

Author's Response:

I can't tell you much about this story, but I can tell you that Ginny and Harry will not be a couple. I'm still considering Ginny's future, but it will not include Harry in any other role than as a brother.

 

Sorry to disappoint, and thank you very much for the kind words.

You're back!  I had begun to think this great story would join the sad ranks of abandoned fics.  Loved the update, keep it coming!  :)

Author's Response:

While there is breath in my body, and the words "The End" haven't appeared, I will never abandon this fic. That's a promise. For that matter, I've actually made arrangements -- this is not a joke -- that if I croak before I finish it, unnamed agents will release details of my planned ending, so you'll know how it came out!

Thanks so much for reading and reviewing, and I'm very glad that after all these months, you still welcome more. 

The Sneeze by risiepookie Rated: RT - Restricted Themes starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 0]
Summary: "Your problem," kiss, "is that you're thinking about it too much. You have to let it come naturally and then just let go."

Hermione has to sneeze, but some things she just can't force, try as she may.  Ron lends a helping hand by showing her the fun in patiently waiting for release. 

Not much plot, just an excuse for smut and spewing of random facts about sneezes.

I loved this story!!  It's very well-written and I don't think Ms. Rowling herself could have done a better job.  Sad to come to the end, but you're right, the story line wouldn't work unless you went AU.  I feel a bit vindicated with my family, who have listened to me pick apart Deathly Hallows for nearly 4 months now.  I kept insisting that three teenagers on the run, sleeping in a tent with emotions and hormones running high, would have problems keeping their hands off each other.  I don't think Ms. Rowling's Ginny would be so forgiving if Harry formed a threesome with Ron and Hermione.  Thank heavens for fanfic!!  I look forward to reading more of your stories.

Author's Response:

Thank you so much for this very kind review!  While I don't think I hold a candle to Rowling's skill with the written word, I do tend to agree with you ... it's a bit of a stretch to think that even something as serious as hunting horcruxes while trying to save the world would prevent any intimacy between three teenagers with all that privacy.  And then after Ron left and it was just Harry and Hermione - even if they weren't each other's first choice - they'd almost HAVE to comfort one another about Ron abandoning them.  Of course, Rowling was marketing a childrens' book, so yeah ... thank heavens for fanfic!

I hope you will read some of my other stories, and please let me know what you think.

Hot but very sweet too.  Harry's naivete and innocence surely did appeal to Katie, as well as his -- ahem -- family jewels!  Would like to see more Harry-Katie fanfic! 



Author's Response: Thank you.  I've always thought that Quidditch got the hormones flowing and, well, Katie is proof of that.  Thanks for reading.
