Title: Longing
Author: iamshadow
Ship: Ron/Harry, Ron/Hermione
Word Count: 2,990
Rating: PG
Warnings: Post DH. EWE. Angst. Hurt/Comfort. Fluff. (May induce nausea.)
Summary: Gift!fic for mrsquizzical. (Did I say I'd write you a ficlet? Of course what I meant by that is a 3,000 odd word monster that took me about two days.)

I offered to try my hand at trio fic as a thank you and this *is* technically trio, but I sort of cheated by focussing more or less exclusively on the Ron/Harry side of things. So you Ron/Harry shippers should be able to read this without fretting about het.

Oh SIGH. This just WORKS so well, and is so right!

Thank you!

I knew it wasn't going to be trio where they're all shagging each other, but I did like the idea of a polyamorous Ron, sharing his life with the two loves of his life.

Hermione and Harry's friendship and love in this story is that of a brother and sister. It's not a sexual love, though it is very intimate. They'd be physically affectionate with each other - hugging, kissing chastely and relaxing, casually draped over each other. It's a very strong bond. So this *is* still trio. That side of the triangle just has a different nature to the others.

Oh, you always manage to make my heart ache a little when you write.

I am not really a trio person, but this was lovely. Of course they are both in love with Ron, but above and beyond any romantic or physical connection is the fact that the three of them love each other more then anything or anybody. It's really a good thing that Hermione is so open minded and forward thinking.

And I see what you mean about our stories having a similar feel to them. That's kind of funny. I'd say it was something in the water, but I think we live on different continents so that's not it.:)

I'm not much of a trio ship person either, which is why it ended up being Harry and Hermione "sharing" Ron rather than a threesome situation. I'll read trio, but I wouldn't have the faintest idea how to write it. Trio friendship, that I can do.

Yeah, it's strange, kinda spooky. If you'd posted yours a week later than you did, I might have thought you'd plagurised my story and got in a froth. :)

This was lovely. I liked the simple aspects of Ron narrative. Very touching.

Glad you liked it! I really wanted that gentle storytelling style, because it's Ron looking back on something years after it happened.

I wrote an outtake for Longing called Bedfellows, if you're interested. It's Ron and Harry and it takes place after Hermione leaves the room. It's higher rated, but I can see from your profile that you're over 18 so I've friended you. :)

Bit late finding this, but glad I did. I'm really not a trio person, but you managed to write a trio fic that worked, in my opinion. Possibly because it was H and H sharing Ron but not involved with each other, but more probably because of the almost organic way it came about. I could believe the situation you set up, you know?

Very enjoyable.

Thank you!

I wanted to write something that could believeably follow canon (sans Epilogue).

Making Harry gay rather than bisexual was delibrate on my part for a couple of reasons, the first being that though he has two noticable crushes on girls in canon, both those relationships he seems to brush aside for some reason or another. He does worry about Ginny in DH, but it doesn't seem to be a very consuming concern (eg, when he discovers she was captured trying to steal the sword, he is dismissive of her punishment while Ron is still upset).

The second reason is I can't seem to get a grip on writing Harry and Hermione romantically or sexually together. I can read it, but I can't write it.

However, Harry and Hermione in an intimate platonic relationship I can easily envisage.

For example, in this verse I can easily imagine Hermione taking Ron and Harry a cup of tea in the morning (while they are nude under the sheets) or Harry or Hermione quickly ducking in to use the loo while the other is in the shower with no embarrassment whatsoever. I can see them being physically affectionate; cuddling, kisses on the cheek or even the lips, and even curling up in bed together (the three of them, or just the two of them if Ron was away) without sex being involved. It's love, but not a sexual love.

Thank you!

This was my first attempt at writing trio, so I was really thrilled that people liked it.

ohh lovely and perfect and so beautifully paced.

"it was Harry", *thud*

"I’m going to bed,” she said softly. “Take care of him, Ron. He needs you.” - hermione you perfect, all knowing, understanding witch.

oh and poor conflicted Harry, not wanting to hurt people, god i loved him in this.
