"Hey!" He looked indignant. "Almost? When've either of you ever beaten me once?"

I love that line. It's amazing how clever you are with your subtle humor. I wish I could write like this. Really sweet piece.

I have always loved this fic. I've read it about a million times. The notes on Hermione's presents are exactly the type of things that I imagine Ron would write. Very sweet!

So good. I especially liked the part where Ron had picked out all the bad Bertie Bott's flavors. :D xo, H

Aw! That was really SWEET!
Too bad Ron actually gave Hermione perfume...but I like your version better. Cool.

I've reviewed this before, but I just never EVER EVER get tired of it! It's just so perfect! I make a habit of coming back and reading it every few months, because it always leaves me feeling warm and snuggly. It's so simplisticly perfect. It doesn't happen all fast and rushed. It's so tentative and carefully done. I love how their shoulders touch, or their knees not quite touch and stuff like that. It's so subtle, but so beautiful. This is definitely one of my all time favorites. I love how it shows theeir development, and ron's changes over the years just by candy and notes. In the beginning, he was insensitive, but they weren't quite close enough yet for him to be outright mean. Then in second year he was a little prat. How devious of him! Then in third year!!! She noticed there were no horrible flavors...awwww. He slowly but surely matures. Heehehe, well now we know she ends up getting PERFUME from him (EEEP!) but I somehow will always have this version in my head as canon.

'The Non-Enthusiast's Guide to Playing Chess and Beating Friends and Relatives Who Almost Always Win and Are Obnoxious About It.' Now THERE'S an oddly specific book. LMAO.

EXCELLENT! Very funny story, made me laugh for *quite* a while ;] and I loved the fluff.

Reviewer: KelseyDate: 2004-06-19
Reviewid: 87845Chapter: 1
Yay. That made me feel all warm inside (and now I want hot cocoa!)

*happy sigh*
That was really sweet (no, Siriusly sweet!), especially the reference to the Agrippa and Ptolemy cards. And that last four lines. Mmm-mm.
Loved it.

That was really cute! I'm not sure why, but my favorite moment was when all three of them were sitting in the common room, with Ron and Hermione next to each other. It was just very sweet.
But then, I LOVED the humor in this, i.e.:

"Checkmate," Ron read aloud. "The Non-Enthusiast's Guide to Playing Chess and Beating Friends and Relatives Who Almost Always Win and Are Obnoxious About It."
Hilariously silly! and the other very funny moment was:

"Dear Hermione,

Happy Christmas.

Your friend,


p.s. Who are you going to the ball with?"

That was sheer brilliance, can I just tell you? Brilliance. I can't believe you didn't overlook that, and that you made it as funny as JKR did. Brilliant.

"Almost? When've either of you ever beaten me once?"
Nice little fluff.

Reviewer: NicDate: 2004-02-02
Reviewid: 69258Chapter: 1
That was such a great idea, using the Christmas gifts!

I really did laugh out loud to Ron's messages with his presents but it was still very sweet.

A really nice ending and what a great book title!

Reviewer: AzyneDate: 2004-01-13

If I've read this once, I've read it a dozen times. It's one of my favorites. You do just a great job of moving from humor to emotion. And the humor is really good! Hermione's response to Ron's each year is perfect! Adn when you get to the emotion, it is subtle and not over the top! Very well done!

I love this bit:
>>By the time I finished, Ron's grin had disappeared. He instead looked horrified - and rather impressed.

I smiled at him, then left for breakfast.


That's just perfect Hermione!

Reviewer: EireneDate: 2003-09-23

Awww =) That was cute! I wouldn't be surprised if Hermione went tearing through all the chocolate frogs she could find for those two cards :p

How can u ALWAYS accomplish such sweet and funny stories? I was giggling like mad at all Ron's stupid Christmas notes! He's such a guy! And that's why I (and Hermione) love him! He's so dumb that he's sweet! I think I'm gonna read this again!

Reviewer: lucysnoweDate: 2003-08-18
Reviewid: 47611Chapter: 1
This is a lovely story. You show the progression of Ron and Hermione's relationship perfectly through his gifts!
Loved this line:
"Checkmate," Ron read aloud. "The Non-Enthusiast's Guide to Playing Chess and Beating Friends and Relatives Who Almost Always Win and Are Obnoxious About It." "Hey!" He looked indignant. "Almost? When've either of you ever beaten me once?"

Hehehe it reminded me of Han's "Who's scruffy looking?" line from the Empire Strikes Back.

Reviewer: dragontacDate: 2003-08-17
Reviewid: 47521Chapter: 1
forgot to mention this earlier: while everyone else may say that you should have kept writing and continue on, I think you had perfect timing and ended it just at the right moment! okay bye now for sure.

Reviewer: dragontacDate: 2003-08-17
Reviewid: 47520Chapter: 1
alright! finally! a good story where they don't kiss or anything! (not like it's a bad thing or anything, but still gotta get away from it everyonce in awhile, you know?) I think you portrayed Ron really well, Hermione too! except i don't think she'd eat the cockroaches. I wouldn't. yeuck. have you ever seen one? they're huge!! i feed them to my turtle!! ahem! enough ranting. just saying your story was great.

Reviewer: JessicaDate: 2003-08-16
Reviewid: 47386Chapter: 1
Aha! I think I have found what makes your stories so PERFECT! (other than the fact that you are a very talented writer) You're descriptions are nothing short of magnificent! The way you describe the characters feelings, the details, everything about your stories are so well thought out and superbly written that it flows as nicely as hot butterbeer! Keep writing, and I will definitely keep reading, and keep leaving comments praising ure brilliance!

You left us hanging!!!!!!!!!!!

But this was very funny:
"Checkmate," Ron read aloud. "The Non-Enthusiast's Guide to Playing Chess and Beating Friends and Relatives Who Almost Always Win and Are Obnoxious About It." "Hey!" He looked indignant. "Almost? When've either of you ever beaten me once?"

Reviewer: AmiyiDate: 2003-07-26

It was so lovely, and bittersweet. Not to gushy like
other fan fics. I think JKR would be very impressed.
I know I was...
