That was a really nice tale, loved the ending where the actors talked to the characters.

Charming tale. :)



Author's Response: Thanks so much! I'm glad you enjoyed it. This story was actually rejected from another site for giving the actors a real role to play, so to speak. But Emma's the only character in the whole story who does anything pro-active about anything, and Dan gets the best joke!

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.

Well, that's one way to throw us poor readers in at the deep end isn't it! :P Only joking.

I like the way you mix Ron's thoughts in with his speech, makes his panic come through in a really powerful way.

So, onwards I go to chapter 2, should I stop reading this a certain number of hours before I go to bed?

*hugs* Sarah ;)



Author's Response:

Hi Sarah!  ::waves::  I'm so excited (and a bit nervous) that you're reading this fic now!  ::bites lip::  Thanks for coming on over!

Yes, I really throw you all in for the beginning and you've got a long while to go before there's any respite.  I'm so glad you're liking Ron's thoughts and speech intertwined!!!  It's one of the things I like best about 1st person!  :o)  Once you get further into the fic, you should definitely stop and read something fluffy before bed (or perhaps write another chapter of Together Forever!)...

Thanks again for reading and reviewing- your thoughts mean a lot to me.  ::hugs::  *ben and jerry's cherries garcia ice cream for you*

*“Yes?” I had asked expectantly, hoping he might give me something to hold onto- something to give me the strength to continue our dance.*

Oh! Yes! Because just the prospect of continuing the will we/won't we with Ron is so worth getting up for! *nods*

*Suddenly Ron looked up and I felt for an instant that I had reached him. Ron reached out for me, but at that moment he faded from my view. I tried desperately to picture him again, to Apparate back to him, but my efforts were in vain.*

Meep! *sigh* He'll find you, Hermione! *glares defiantly* He will!

I really like your Hermione inner voice, it's proud and defiant to anyone who thinks she can't look after herself, (okay I know she gets kidnapped but I'm not blaming her for that! She needs to daydream about Ron to keep her going!)

So now she's in a cell, why do I get the feeling she's going to be there a while and yo're going to have nasty things happen to her?

Nice one mate! ;)



Author's Response:

Hi Steppy!  :o)  ::big hugs::

Yes, you and I really are quite the angst-whores er... queens, aren't we?  So glad the angst is working for you, though I have the feeling I'll have to hide from you once you start reading later chapters!

Thank you for the compliments on Hermione's inner voice- I think we both have similar views (and love!) of her and I'm so pleased that you're enjoying my interpretation/characterization of her.  Unfortunately, you're right- I do have some horrible nasty things that are going to be done to Hermione, but I promise she'll survive! 

Thanks again for reading and reviewing!  I'm so excited that you're following this fic and I really value your thoughts/opinions.  *peppermint patties for you*

*"But only for a couple of hours, and then I’m coming back whether you bloody well want me to or not.”*

Yes! Defiant!Ron is always good. *nods*

*Please don’t make me go home alone*

Oh! *meeps* *dies*

*This will work. We'll save her. I'll save her. And when I do, I won’t ever let her go. *

 Yes, back to Defiant!Ron, always good. Go save her, Ron. Go! Go!

Your vulnerable Ron was fantastically believable, obviously I loved that he didn't want to be on his own and wasn't scared to make it obvious to Harry that was how he felt.

*sigh* onward to where I'm sure you're gonna be mean to my favourite character! *sulks a little*



Author's Response:

::nods with you::  Defiant!Ron is sexy.  Oh, heck, who am I kidding- any Ron is sexy!  :o)

I'm so glad you enjoyed both the Defiant!Ron and the Vulnerable!Ron aspects of this chapter.  I think one of my favourite things about DH was how open Ron was with Harry about his feelings toward Hermione.  Not over the top, but there was no denial.  That's how I always thought they would be, talking about their girls. 

::winces::  You're definitely getting closer to the darker parts of the story.  ::hugs::  I'll console you when you're done. 

Thanks for reading and reviewing, sweetie!  I'm so happy you're reading this and enjoying it.  ::huge hugs::  *cheesecake for you*

*Don't think about that now, I chided myself.  I mustn't waste the chance to connect with him, to help him find me.*

Always the logical one, our Hermione!

*whatever it took to survive.*

*nods defiantly*

But oh! and that was just the start of things. Meanie! :P

Brilliant as ever!

 



Author's Response:

::grins::  Yes, logical, though sometimes she can get a bit flustered- which I love about her.  She's not perfect, but she's awesome.  And, yes, this was just the beginning of it.  ::braces self::  I'm sure I'll get quite the finger wagging after the next chapter!  hehe.

Thanks so much for reading and reviewing, honey.  I love hearing your thoughts about the fic and can't wait to see what you think about the upcoming chapters!  *pumpkin pie for you*

Yep.

I loved this, well, okay, you know what I mean! Hermione's conversation with herself and her thoughts, are, in my opinion, spot on.

*hugs Ron*

*small meep*



Author's Response:

more meeping!  I'm so glad the characterisation of Hermione resonated with you and you found it to be true.  I quiter enjoy writing Hermione, specifically because of her internal monologue.    ::hugs Ron with you::  You'll really want to hug him soon, I think. 

Thank you again for reading and reviewing!  I really appreciate it and I'm so happy you're enjoying it.  *chocolate-covered toffee bits for you*

Hehe! Trust Ron to add his own parts to the story!

Very nice, tied in canon nicely without giving Dumbledore his weekness. Yay for the Grangers' return! Woot! *applauds*



Author's Response:

Yeah, Ron the smart-aleck, having a bit of fun with the stories of his childhood! I had so much fun with that.

Likewise, the return of the Grangers was a great pleasure, and I hope it will give me -- and you -- more. 

Thanks so much for the lovely review! 

The Sneeze by risiepookie Rated: RT - Restricted Themes starstarstarstarstar [Reviews - 28]
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.

Well, all I can say is 'wow!' That was fantastic, mate. Only until you spelled it out did I realise it was Lavender speaking and not Hermione. I had to go back and read it again! *lol*

Seriously, well done Risie, this is top class!

Author's Response:

Sweetie, you were on holiday!  I never expected you to read it while you were relaxing on the beach!!!  Thanks so much for reading and reviewing- you know I always love to hear what you think, because I really respect and value your opinions. 

I'm SO glad you were fooled until basically the end.  It was supposed to be subtle at best and I thought many people would have to go back and take another look- kinda like when you know the ending to The Sixth Sense and things make sense, but you never got to that point on the first watch.  I'm quite pleased that you enjoyed it!  ::hugs::

That was fantastic, do much angst and want and need and angst and heartbreak and more angst, and it was all beautifully written. I have to admit I generally don't read 2nd person, but i'm so happy I read this!

Absolutely fantastic. 



Author's Response: Oh, I'm so glad you liked it!  In my opinion, second person is something that can be done either horribly or impeccably with very little variation...I hope I venture more toward the latter :D  Thanks so much for reading!

This fic is my submission for The Quidditch Pitch’s Ron-a-Thon silent auction. It was commissioned by the wonderful MrQuatto, who requested angst, smut, and Hermione finding out about Ron's Horcrux/locket experience and proving to him how wrong the locket was.

My Risie, my darling, my love,

 I suck at reviewing, you know this already, and I suck at keeping up with fic, you also know this, but I'm so happy I've caught up with this. Both Ron and Hermione are wonderfully in character - Hermione's determination and curiousness and Ron's insecurities but grit and loyalty shine through brilliantly.

I loved how you had Hermione take the initiative again, you know she would, regardless of how her actions manifested in the end.

George is wonderfully understanding, I'm not sure if we'll see more of him but I'd not complain if we did

I know it's a minor thing, but I love the way you sign off each chapter. Like you're underlining each one but leaving the door wide open for the next one.

You've probably guessed I love this, I'm just sorry it's taken me this long to leave you a review. *Must try harder*

*hugs and snogs you senseless* 



Author's Response:

My Sarah!!!!  Wifey, you know I always love to have you read and review- however often it happens. ::snuggles::  Thank you so much for reading and letting me know that you're enjoying it!  Glad to know you're finding both Hermione and Ron in character and seeing their personalities come through.  Yay!

Also, very glad to know you're enjoying Hermione being the initiator and George's subtle place in the fic.  I don't think we get more of him in this one, but if I do a follow-up, he'll definitely be there.   Oh, and you're the first person to mention the last line of the chapter thing, but I've loved doing those little lines, so thank you for noticing!!  :o)

Thank you, again, sweetie, for letting me know you're enjoying it.  I really am so very pleased to know- especially since I highly value your opinion.  ::hugs and smoochies you breathless::  *chocolate kisses for you*
