How sweet! I loved the exchange of galleons at the end, that was just the right dose of humor.

The Hat Trick by Icarus Rated: FG13 - Family Guidance13 [Reviews - 2]

This is an intriguing little piece.  Bits of the premise make me think of Pete Rose and his little gambling scandal.  (I don't think he got a fair shake.  He never bet against his own team.)  I like your Ron, he's very straight up.  I'm off to the next chapter to see how you've wrapped this up.

Author's Response: Ah, very observant of you. In fact, I had Pete Rose in mind when I wrote it. I don\'t believe he got a fair shake either. I always suspected there was much more beneath the surface of that situation.

Nice.  I'll take that for a happy ending.  It's pretty well written, but feels like it should have been fleshed out into more chapters.  I wish we'd gotten a more clear idea of just what Ron blew the whistle on.  Still, I enjoyed it quite a bit, thanks!

Author's Response: You know, I never meant for this piece to be published outside my website. It was uploaded for me by friends here. It\'s as close to a happy ending as we\'ll see. ;) \r\n\r\nThe sense of incompleteness has to do with the fact that this was just an additional scene written for those who asked in LJ, rather than any genuine addition to the series. I\'m glad you enjoyed it, but I\'m contemplating pulling it from the Quidditch Pitch. \r\n

I don't think I've ever read this story before.  I've read and enjoyed so many of yours, that I don't know how I missed it.  I really liked it.  I love that Hermione's mom knew that Ron would take care of Hermione; and I love that Ron knew it, too.  The whole thing was quite tender.

Well, you're pairing isn't my bag, but I loved the story!  My older sister and a cousin used to scare the bejezus out of me with that Bloody Mary twattle.  And even though I knew they'd do something, I still jumped and ran screaming like the little girl I was everytime they grabbed me!  Thanks for the laugh and the memory!

Wow.  Wow.  That's an awfully, ummmm....evocative? well described?  detailed?  lead up to a simple kiss.  In fact, I'd say the preceding paragraphs turn it into something much more than a simple kiss.  (I don't think that's easy to do.  Congratulations!)

I don't know what prompted me to read this, because I'm not into Hermione/any-Weasley-other-than-Ron at all.  Having said that, I'm really glad I did read it.  It's very moving, and well written.  Thank you for writing this.  You make some very true statements.  It is easy to feel as if you've lost your sense of self to a relationship, and it is also true that a relationship can create a different, but no less wonderful you.

This is heartbreakingly marvellous.  I love the way Ron decided to jump in with "I'm Billious," and Hermione responded, "I'm Jane."  That was a very hopeful moment.

There is more to come, right?  (crossing my fingers.)

That was heartbreaking. I'm not usually a fan of affair fics, but, for some reason, you pointing it out in your note made me okay with it. Perhaps because it didn't sneak up on me. At any rate, you did a great job of making me feel anxious and hurt for Harry and Hermione, sad for poor Ron, as well as happy that he'll likely never know, and sorry for Ginny, to see something like that and have to address it. Ooh, it was all filled with delicious angst! Nice job.

I haven't even read the update, yet!  I'm so excited to see something from you.  I kept looking and looking at the entry, trying to figure out what I was looking at to make it appear as if this was in the update queue!  I'm diving in, right this minute!  Oh!  Thank you!
