I really liked that. What makes this pairing my favorite is that that Harry and Ron are always and forever best friends first. You captured that beautifully in the fact that Ron knew that following Harry into the bedroom was his choice and it wasn't an ultimatum on their relationship. Because, as you said, their love (and love in general) simply is and sex changes the picture.

And I don't have a problem with your Hermione. I like Hermione. But Fic is a fun way to explore the alternatives, and it's a possibility that Hermione ends up this way. She isn't out of character so much as sent down a different path.

Absolutely. The relationship between Harry and Ron has always been more balanced and forgiving, whereas Hermione and Ron's relationship has been fraught with arguments, misunderstandings and disrespect from the day they met. They went through large portions of time during their school years barely speaking, or speaking only through Harry. There was always love between Harry and Ron. That's canon. Ron is Harry's stolen treasure in the fourth book, and Harry accepts Ron back in Deathly Hallows without judgement. They have fought, but when they make up, it's without conditions. That's a true and pure love, right there. Sex is just another dimension, and Ron knows without even asking that he can take it or leave it, and either way it's not going to change that bond.

I'm glad you could see that she wasn't grossly OOC! She is different, but I hope people reading this can recognise what I tried to achieve; that she's just gone a different direction with the attributes she already had. A lot of people do that, once they leave puberty.
