Well, I think I also stumbled upon your profile at fanfiction site, where you state that Ron is not 'worthy' of being with hermione. SO you put her with draco.
We all know, Draco wanted Hermione dead from the 2nd year. And even upunti lthe end he never really turned good. He was just a bloddy coward. I mean his mother had more balls than him. Even at the end in the room of requirement he wanted harry to be captured so that he can get into the good grace of the dark lord, not caring about the innocent lives killed. That sick nazi is worhty of Hermione? Racists are scum, and I wouldnt want any person to be stuck with them let alone Hermione.(Yes draco is a racist, and racist never change) You know, JKR had lot more brains than you, thats why she shose Ron worthy of Hermione. :)
And coming to this site being pro canon thing, I would say stop whining. I can rest assure you will not get any sympathy. Try granger enchanted, and try to write a pro ron ( I mean canon ron) fic, and more often than not you will get hate reviews. Heck one of my firend's fic had to be stopped publishing because she switched from Dramoine to romoine in the middle of her story. So its there everywhere, so I say quit with the whining. Your double game is there for everyone to see.
It's really ironic btw. Ron who overcame his insecurity and all is not worthy of hermione, but a man who wanted her dead from a young age of 12(!) and who has been brainwashed from the start of treating peaople based on their birth is worthy. What a load of codswallop..
However sometimes I do feel for Draco fans. he as neither this evil-master that so many expected, nor did he com[pletely turn good. He was this coward and loser git, who only wanted to save his own sorry arse, completely turning a blind eye to the things happening around him. Yea I do feel for Draco fans, but only when they dont write trash like this. It must be hard, to steal a rubbish character written by a brilliant author, and turn him into all this nonsense of being 'worthy ' of hermione. So I guess some credit is indeed due to you. (yea yea..this is fanfiction, you can like whatever you like...bla bla)...
Oh Wow! You do care about JK's characters a lot don't you? I can't come up with a witty, smart answer to your very insightful review; nevertheless I think I should answer it to the best of my abilities. I am not sure about people not changing their beliefs or the way they used to look at things. I know I have. And I have done it by getting burned sometimes, making huge mistakes and learning from those mistakes and by having people come into my life who taught me a few things about love, courage, self-worth, etc. I also believe that love all of kinds (love of a child, of a friend, of a man) has the power to change the most stubborn, intolerant of persons. Fanfiction is what it is. Fiction written by fans of a book or movie, nothing else. Fanfiction is a world of 'what ifs'.
Was Draco a coward, a bigot and self-serving bastard? Yes he was. Was Ron a loyal, brave friend? Hell yes! Wasn't he also a selfish, immature, jealous boy and at times cruel and so self-absorbed he hurt Hermione (and sometimes Harry) more than Draco ever did just by the mere fact that he was supposed to cared for her? His mouth was ahead of his head most of the time. What about his reaction during the Tri-wizard tournament to Harry's inclusion in it? His envy was so blatant and his mistreatment of Harry, his friend, a sad telling tale of his character. His relationship with Lavender? The horrible words he spat at Hermione during the Yule Ball? Taking off during the Horcrux hunt? His treatment of the girl he was supposed to be falling in love with was... lacking. So I decided to explore, experiment and fantasize about a different ending to one of my favourite heroines in the whole series and wrote this inconsequential fic.
Regarding JKR's brain size compare to mine, I think she and I can claim having a brain more or less of the same weight and dimensions. One can only put some much brain matter inside a human skull. What attributes said organ has is the issue and I would never, ever assert I come even remotely close to the amazing talent she displayed when she wrote the Harry Potter series. It is a work of art and I can not express how grateful I am to her because thanks to Harry Potter one of my sons discovered reading.
I came to this site because my beta is close to those who run it and she encouraged me to post my fic here. She is a canon reader and someone I trust, so here I am. If I sound like I am whining it is not my intention. Why read something you disliked so much? There are hundred of thousands of fics out there and let me tell you some people are just too good like for instance BrandedFaithfully on this site. If you want to wash off the bad taste my fic left in your mouth go and read some of her stuff, she is just amazing.
Thank you for your challenging thoughts. Happy reading!

I have been on this site much longer than you have. I have read all the wonderful works of branded faithfully, solstice muse thesteppyone et al. And thats why I got so annoyed that you are levelling baseless allegations against this wonderful site and its readres. i mean in all the review reply you HAVE to say somthing about this 'pro canon' site and its readers.
Listen, how long have you been on this site?? This site is anything but pro canon. ANd I am not saying it in a bad light. Readers and writers are free to write whatever pairing you desire. There are loads of Dramoine out here. And none of them have reviews like you have got in the starting. You have got such reviews because of your constant whining about this site and Ron. I rememberin your first chapetr you had put somthing about this in your author notes ( u might have deletd it later), which sparked off such reactions.
And what do you mean by I like 'JKR's characters' a lot? Well, sorry to burst your little bubble, there is Harry, Ron Hermione Draco..etc characters. And ALL of them are JKR's. There is nothing like your characters or mine, all of them are JKR's. If you think otherwise, then you are wrong.
And coming to Ron..Wow you do hate him with a passion dont you? You say he is immature jealous and an idiot who is not 'equal' to hermione? Is it? Who is an 'equal' to Hermione? Snape and Draco?? Now lets talk about them a bit later. At the moment lets focus on Ron.
Yes Ron did hurt Harry and made a few mistakes. But he was still a teenager and he learnt from them. And after that did he not help Harry so much? Everyone is jealeous some or the other time but the point is you dont have to sulk because of it always. ANd thats what Ron did exactly. He was always there with Harry when it mattered the most. And he leanrt from the mistakes in the end.
And about ROn mistreating Hermione. What about the other way round? Have you looked at that angle. Or are you so blinded by your hatred of ROn that you dont want to? Now dont get me wrong, Hermione is my most favorite character( you can make that out from my nick), but sometimes you felt like smacking her hard on her head. Like when she didnt believe when Ron became the prefect, her not believing Ron not able to play well without the luck potion, not beliving Ron could stun death eaters spectculalry whilst in air on a broom. And what was that thing about her reaction to Ron's perfume gift. "It's strange"?? What kind of an 'mature' girl reacts that way when your best friend gifts you a possibly romantic gift? And she always mantained that she and krum were just friends and that was a lie. She had kissed Krum and Ron had to hear it from his sister no less. So what would ron think when she invited him to the slug party, while there still was ample evidence that she might secretly still be involved with krum? Did all these things do not amount to hurting ron, a friend hermione cares very much? All I am trying to say, is not about hermione hurting ron or ron hurting hermione more. They were teenagers trying to sort their feelings about each other out and all the things they did to humiliate each other was rather unintentional. They BOTH did mistakes(not just RON, but hermioen as well).
And you say Ron is not intellectually equal to Hermione? And that he is stupid and idiot. Just because he doesnt get as many marks as Hermione doesnt make him stupid. Heck he gets the same marks as Harry but for the dark arts (we later learn that Harry was good a dark arts and stuuf because the powerful voldermort had unwittingly transferred a part of his power to harry). Apart from that he recieved those awards in the year end for 'saving' the school along with harry at the age of 11 and 12!! Do you beleive that Dumbledore would have given them to Ron if he was just a stupid dumbass? Just because you dont score marks in school it doesnt make you an idiot ( einstien edison et al were patheitc in school). And apart from that ROn is a brilliant chess player. You know, to be a good chess palyer, you should have an exceptionally high IQ. Else you cannot play that game well. Fischer, spassky kasparov have defeated super computers (which does a zillion calculations per second). So ROn is certainly not stupid. He has intelligence but maybe it doesnt necessarily transfer to exceptional marks (mind you he gets good marks not exceptional).
And what about the time where he said to sirius that he had to get him first if he were to touch harry (forget the bloody movie)? What about that time when he said to harry that he will come with him where ever he goes (again forget the movie)? What about the time when he tried to hex YOUR precious Draco when Draco racially abused Hermione? What about the time when the first thing he did on Tottenham road was to cover hermione with his body so that she is shielded from any death eater curses without considering anything about his own safety? What about the time when he tried to prevent hermione coming to the ministryso that she could be safe? And what about the time when he begged the death eaters to kill him instead of Hermione when the death eaters tried to take Hermione while Draco et al watched mutely?
And you say Ron is not fit enough to be with Hermione because he hurts her and he is stupid?
And you say Draco and Snape are equal to Hermione? Draco, from the tender age of 11 was a racist. He racilly abused all the muggle born and wanted Hermione dead from the second year. He was the one who called Mrs Weasly all sort of names just because the weasleys were poor. And Draco took pleasure in innocent lives being killed. He enjoyed torturing small kids under umbridge. He let many of the death eaters inside hogwarts in his sixth year and was responsible for the mnay lives being killed. And he stood mutely and watched Hermione being tortured because he was too bloody a coward about doing anything about it.And nowhere it is mentioned anything about Draco's 'intelligence' but the way he acted, I am pretty sure he was downright stupid. And snape? He again was in the dark side and was responsible of innocent deaths and was also responsible for the death of Harrys parents(and for the state of Nevilles parents as well), for he was the one to tell coldermort about the prophecy.He only turned good because lily was killed but felt no remorse about james, the longbottoms and the many muggle borns.
And you say Ron is not worthy but Draco and Snape are? Do you even have an iota of idea how ridiculous, hypocritic and sick you sound?
Listen, i have nothing about Dramione, my points above were just a retaliation to the constant replies you gave to reviews about Ron and his worthiness to Hermione here and elsewhere. You can go ahead and stay in your own misconcpeted notion of 'Draco being worthy of hermione world'.But if you constantly whine and parade against this wonderful site and its readers, I will tell you, you have got one thing coming.
ANd I dont have to be advised by you regarding what to read. Even much before you I have known Branded faithfully et al here are wonderful writers. They are so wonderful that when YOU rant against Ron in THEIR stories,( I have seen you have done so) they wont tell you off, but rather reply with compliments. So yeah, everyone knows this site is wonderful and most of its users are good except for you.
And what am I suppose to answer to all this? I honestly thought once you let me know what you thought about my fic you would move on, obviously you can't. I'd suggest that my transgressions such as my whining and parading my tastes about JKR's characters, my objection to the pairing Hermione/Ron as well as the tenor of my answers to reviews I receive should be reported to the moderators of this site so that I'd get what's coming to me, and hopefully you'd get your pound of flesh and all would be right in the world.
Regarding BrandedFaithfully I can't speak on her behalf. She's been mature, open-minded and courteous in relation to the reviews I've written about her fics. I don't believe I was in any way disrespectful or insulting in giving my opinion. In fact, my reviews are all about her amazing talent and how much I've enjoyed reading her stories.
I guess I have nothing more to add other than thank you for your challenging thoughts.

Merlin! Ron deserves more respect than that from his friends. I mean after all the things that he has done, he doesnt outta be ignored that way!
One advise to all the writers is if you dont like Ron, then just kill him off somehow rather than illustrating him in such a piss poor manner!!
Ron deserves more respect from his friends? When has he shown that he won't act first and think later? Was it during the Tri-Wizard tournament when he ditched Harry because his name came out of the goblet? Or was it when he snogged Lavender in front of Hermione? Or perhaps when he left in the middle of the Horcrux Hunt? Yeah, he's done good things, but he's done bad things too. How were any of the family to just automatically assume that Ron wasn't going to show his mean side? Molly was being prudent in finding out the truth before letting Ron possibly jump to conclusions.
And thanks for your oh-so-subtle advice. I don't hate Ron, I just think he has a lot of maturing to do.

After all the responses to review you say you dont hate Ron! I really appreciate your sense of humour.
And dude I give you an open challenge. Join cosforumsdotcom, theres a simlar thread against Ron. The create had started the same citing the similar stupid logic. Please join htat. I am active participator there and replying here in review would be inconvinient. Nedless to say, the original argument was shred to pieces. It would be good to have you there.
Also, out of curiosity, what do you make of Ginny when she was very upset and Jealous after CHo offered to show Harry the Ravenclaw showroom in the mids of the battle? As per your theory against Ron, Ginny should be termed mentally defunct!
Accept it. Ron desrves more credit than any of the Weasley, least of it all being Ginny and Geroge and deserves more credit than what you have portrayed . Your personal vendatta against a character is ruining an otherwise well written story.
Author's Response: Thanks for your comments, hope you continue to enjoy some other story.
