Loved it! Your Ron voice was incredible - absolutely spot on. And I liked your characterisation of Hermione in this, because I could actually see her behaving that way, you know? Using Ron as a bit of stress relief, and feeling that she can just keep him stashed away for a rainy day.

Loved the bit about Molly teaching Ron and his brothers the protective charm and threatening them about its use! I've done much the same with condoms and my kids...

Thoroughly enjoyed this :)

I love writers like shocolate that write so easily and naturally in first person Ron. This and my Longing 'verse fic have partially been experiments to find that 'Ron voice' myself. I'm glad you thought it was successful!

And I'm so glad you liked my Hermione. I made her a self-centred bitch, but I really tried to make her believeably self-centred. So, she keeps Ron around and feels justified using him, because he doesn't fight it. He keeps giving in, because he wants something more, and hopes that being available will mean she'll notice him. Of course, all that does is make him feel bad and encourage her to continue treating him badly.

And then, when her exciting lover ditches her with a baby on the way, she tries to insinuate her way back into Ron's life, using the child as leverage, because she knows that Ron's an honourable sort of bloke, and would take care of her if it was his baby. I think she was hoping the kid would look a lot like her, so that paternity wasn't clear one way or the other.

And yay for safe sex parents everywhere! Molly and Arthur got married young and had a lot of kids. They're not discouraging their kids from doing the same, but they don't want them being forced into parenthood too young with someone they're not in love with because they've been careless. Ginny got the talk too, though that probably wasn't as clear with the way I phrased it. I'd imagine hers went something along the lines of, "You can't trust men to do anything right, especially at a moment like that. Do the charm yourself, because you're the one that's going to have to give birth, if he doesn't do it properly." followed by the 'something the size of a watermelon through a hole the size of a lemon' description.
