It may be a filler chapter but I loved it.  I thank lillywmw if she convinced you to finish this wonderful story.  I was beginning to wonder if I would be alive when it was finished.

Now, I really don't see any reason for Harry not to marry Ginny.  Life is always uncertain even in peaceful times.  I know Harry carries a huge burden but I think he would find comfort and help from Ginny.  I'm a little surprised as close as Ron is to Ginny he hasn't figured out her true hopes and dreams.  Can't wait for the wedding. 

Hope to see another update really soon.  If you've written the end I pray you finish the whole story.

I was so excited to see this story updated.  I thought it was just right not to sweet.   I love that Roni loves Ron already, and that mad Weasley family together was fun. 

I wonder what Harry's doing. 

Well, hope to see updates, smut and an ending soon.  I miss your writting.

Wake Me by risiepookie Rated: RT - Restricted Themes starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 173]
Summary: In the midst of the War, Hermione is kidnapped and held captive as Ron, Harry and Ginny search desperately for her. Hermione and Ron share a psychic connection, with which she tries to help him find her before it is too late.

A strong warning for this story, as it does contain the rape of a character and severe psychological trauma.

Just read this story.  Really dark I can't say I enjoyed it, but I will finish reading it.  The emotional tramua Hermione will go through just seems too much.  I hope Hermione and Ron can get through all of it without too many scars.  I hope they will finally admit their feelings and be together Happy Ever After.

Just so you know I don't think this would ever happen.  Ron and Hermione won't make the mistake of not being with each other, Ron didn't take up with Lavender because he didn't love Hermione he did because he was jealous of Krum and hurt that Hermione didn't believe in him (or so the thought). 



Author's Response:

Hi KaLynne-  Thank you for reviewing to let me know your thoughts, even if you aren’t enjoying it.  In response to your comments, I know it’s really dark.  I forewarned everyone of that in the summary, and in my author’s notes several times, so you had to know that was coming. 

 

Hermione and Ron will survive and come through as stronger people- yes, they will be emotionally scarred, but who isn’t?  The piece is not fluffy, nor will it turn out to be so.  If you are hoping for a very happily ever after, you’ll not get it in this fic.  I also forewarned about severe psychological trauma and that’s what I’m delivering on.  Unfortunately, all magical aspects aside, this is very real for many, many women.  I would not feel right weakening the emotional and psychological trauma just to make it easier to read. 

As for the changes in their relationship- it hasn’t all unfolded yet…

If a Man Answers by risiepookie Rated: RT - Restricted Themes starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 218]
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.

Date: 02/15/2007 Title: Chapter 6: Chapter 6 - A Real Homecoming

I just found this story.  I find the H/Hr couple hard to understand, but I guess needing comfort comes in a lot of different ways. 

I find ruining the love of R/H and H/G too sad.  There is no way I feel a Trio would work (personal point of view-it's just wrong) but H/Hr just don't have the fire needed for a life long commitment.  Harry still loves Ginny even if he is sleeping with Hermione.  Ron running away always makes me mad.

Good Luck, hope to see an update soon. 



Author's Response:

Hi KaLynne-  I can't really tell if you enjoyed the chapter or hated it.  It sounds like a lot of the elements have you conflicted, but you are going to stick with it?  Thanks for taking the time to review and let me know your thoughts.  I know a lot of people have a hard time with H/Hr and to be honest, I don't have a problem with it in the context of comfort.  Sometimes that's what people look for when they are in despair.  The upcoming couple chapters should be very illumating.  Thanks again for reviewing!

Date: 04/13/2007 Title: Chapter 7: Chapter 7 - Rumination

Well, I don't really know what to say.  This story is really well written, but the subject matter is so sad.  I don't like Ron leaving but then for Harry and Hermione to start up together and betray Ginny is just too much.  

Can't say it's my favorite story - we'll see. 

 



Author's Response:

Thank you for reading and reviewing, even if you aren't enjoying it- I appreciate your thoughts.  I believe you said something very similar on the last chapter, and it is going to remain quite sad for a few chapters, as there is a fic warning for angst.  If you're looking for fluff, you need to look elsewhere, because you definitely won't find it here.  However, if you stick with it, there will be a resolution in the future- it's just going to take a while to get there.  I'm very pleased you are finding it well-written though, and I thank you very much for your compliment!

Date: 04/22/2008 Title: Chapter 9: Chapter 9 - Immersion

I don't really know what to say.  This story is really well written but it makes me feel so sad, hopeless really.  I don't see a way out for them where everyone will be happy.  Ginny should have been with Harry taking care of Hermione not running off with other men.  Ron never should have left.  Hermione and Harry should never have slept together. 

Granted I am a Ron/Hermione fan so this may be why I am so upset with their situation, who knows.

I don't really like feel so sad after reading a fanfic, I love your stories but if I can get out of my duldrums I may have to put off reading them for a while. 



Author's Response:

Hi there! Thank you for reading and reviewing, I really appreciate it.  I'm sorry the fic is making you sad, but I think it makes sense for where we are in the fic.  We haven't gotten past anything, but have been sitting in the muck for a long time.  Also, given that it's all through Ron's eyes, I think it's natural to feel the hurt through him.

There are so many things that shouldn't have happened that did, I agree.  Now it comes down to trying to unwind everything- which I promise is coming sooner than you may think.  In my plan, I think this is the lowest we will get with these characters, so there's nowhere to go but up!  Thanks again for leaving me your thoughts!  *caramel apple for you*

Midnight Confessions by alloy Rated: MT - Mature Themes starstarstarstarhalf-star [Reviews - 58]

Oh, how exciting, one of my favorite stories updated.  I really loved it.

Reviewer: KaL Signed
Date: 02/07/2008 Title: Chapter 25: Look at You That Way

This was always one of my favorite stories, mostly because you wrote Ron so well and made him powerful and attractive. 

Though I realize that there are attractions between two people that will never be acted on I still felt let down that in the end you had to put Ron down and make Harry better than him again.

A little thing I know, but in a fic where Ron was finally recognized as being attractive and powerful it was a let down for me.

I realize that Leviathan wrote this and maybe he just doesn't see Ron the same way I do.

 



Author's Response: I don't think that was the intention, for me anyway the intention was to layer the relationships, I think it's Leviathans style that leads to that conclusion rather than our intent. Thanks for your honest comments.

Glad to see you back.  I love this story.  I like Weasley Mountain and their friendship with McGowans.  I like seeing Wizards and Muggles working together.  The Lake scene was wonderful as was Ron and Charlie's interaction.  Poor Harry left out.

I will say I like the earlier chapters better, for me they seemed to flow better for some reason.  I love Ron and Hermione and any thing that is centered on them I enjoy.

Can't wait for the next update.  You are so talented with lots of original ideas.  I just love this story.

P.S. I also noticed the few errors but no big thing.

Date: 04/01/2008 Title: Chapter 27: Signs & Portents

Love this story, but you are becoming rather cryptic and it is getting harder for me to follow, I guess I'm slow.  But after a couple of reads I think I got it.

This must be the training that Hugh wanted to have Ron and Hermione get.  It really shows how powerful Ron is.  It's going to be up to him to keep Harry and Hermione safe.   

Donovan really can't be so blind as to not see what's happening between Charlie and Chris can he?    

Sally Weasley is taller than Molly, her hair like her daughter’s is black, though her sons carry the same Ginger mops as my Ron.

Wasn't Chris a foundling not blood related to the Weasleys?  I hope so otherwise her and Charlie are creepy.

Can't wait for more.  I didn't thank you for the quick up date since it took me a while to read and re-read.  But thanks. 



Author's Response: Chris is indeed a foundling, it's just a conincidence that her 'mother' and her share hair colour. Oh and Donovan is not so much blind as in a little denial.

Please tell me rather you are going to continue this story or not.  I really enjoy it but it's been a long time between chapters.  I worry that you will stop now that DH is out.  Please just let me know if I need stop watching for updates.  Thanks

Author's Response:

Not abandoned, just a bit overlooked. I'll find out what chapter is supposed to be next and get it to the beta. If you're really impatient for the whole thing its posted complete on Live Journal. Type in The_muskmelons and you should get the comm with the whole fic posted on it. That version is unbetad though.

Sorry for the wait, we get distracted by shiny things!

Dear Muskmelons,

Thank you for directin me to the link for the full story.  Loved it.  I would surly like another with Harry's recovery, 7th year for all three, Weasly reaction to seeing Ron ETC.  Hope I didn't give too much away.  

This story is really worth the time to read.  Thanks again 



Author's Response:

Glad you enjoyed it. Quidditch Hair keeps prodding me to colab again so it shouldn't be too long.

Oh and apparently it was my turn to get the chapter to the beta so all my fault...sorry!
