My First Ron/Hermione Drabble . . .

Now that voting is completed for rwhg_ldws I can post the drabble on my LJ. I was WAY insane over constantly checking the voting, even to the point that I knew what number the person who voted last had given me! *blushes* I have been squeeing all week over how much fun this is. I thought it was fun in the last challenge, when I read and voted each week, but participating has been even more fun. :)

Of course, I haven't been able to do much beside sit here and write and/or obsess over drabble voting. I had physical therapy for my costochondritis on Friday. The therapist decided to try something new--this battery-operated pain patch thing--UBER FAIL! I have a bruise from it, and had an allergic reaction to the adhesive, it hurts to breathe . . . :P I didn't even feel well enough to go to church this morning, and I missed MrWheezy conducting the choir. :( At least we have DVD's of the services . . .

On a positive note, I AM doing a lot of writing . . .

Squabbles, and Spiders, and Squibs, Oh My!

Ron had always thought it completely bloody wrong that Hugo was a Squib. He and Hermione had believed Hugo was just a late bloomer . . . until his Hogwarts’ letter failed to arrive. Hugo’s 11th birthday was one of the worst days in the life of the Weasley family. Thank Merlin Hermione had insisted Rose and Hugo attend Muggle Primary School. And thank Merlin for the Grangers. They had done an excellent job in assisting Hermione in tutoring Ron so he would not embarrass Hugo in front of his Muggle friends. Hugo attended University, earned several advanced degrees, and had a lovely girlfriend who Ron would not mind having for a daughter-in-law some day. Overall, everything had gone swimmingly . . . until now.

“I am NOT going, Hermione!”

“Ronald. You NEED to go. Hugo would be extraordinarily hurt if his father were absent on his big day.”

“Her-miii-ooo-neee!” Ron whined. “I’ve always been fine with our son being a miniature Muggle Hagrid. I didn’t say a word when we had to join the ZSL so Hugo could participate in their education programs. I have taken him to the London Zoo more times than I can count. I didn’t complain when he wanted to adopt Billy the ring-tailed lemur in honor of his Uncle Bill, even though I really hoped he would want to adopt Ronald the giraffe. But this is JUST TOO MUCH!”

Hermione rolled her eyes. “Oh, Ron. It’s just a reception . . .”

“A reception! Is that what you call it!” Ron flapped the invitation in Hermione’s face and then began to read:

The University of Cambridge Institute of Zoology cordially invites you to the grand opening of Arachnid Adventure, the newest exhibit of the London Zoo. The designer and curator of Arachnid Adventure, Dr. Hugo Weasley, celebrated author, professor, and arachnidologist, will be honored at the opening reception and be available to answer any questions . . .

“Blah, Blah, Blah . . . Our son plays with effing spiders for a living! What did I ever do to deserve this! It’s just wrong!”

Hermione rubbed Ron’s back, attempting to calm him. “Oh Ron, you always said the same thing about Hugo’s being a Squib . . .”

“Well, two wrongs don’t make a right, Hermione!”

Hermione sighed. “That’s not how that expression is used, Ron.”

“I don’t care! I’m just not going!”

Hermione wrapped her arms around Ron’s waist and cuddled into his chest. “If you come to Hugo’s reception, I promise I will make it VERY worthwhile for you . . .”

“Yeah?” Ron was trying to resist, but Hermione was doing some very distracting things to him.

“Oh, yes.”

“Well, fine. I’ll go. But it’s still wrong that my only son loves spiders, of all things!”

Hermione just nodded, and continued her strategy of taking Ron’s mind off of spiders.

I'm sorry the physical therapy didn't go so well.

Although it was hard imagining Hugo as a Squib, I though you did a great job with the humor in the drabble. Ron fear of spiders is just hilarious and you used it very well here.

I so agree, it's really fun! Good luck on the next challenge.

Thank you. Well, I did like the therapist, and it can only get better. ;)

I really don't think of Hugo as a squib, either, but once I got the idea for his being an arachnidologist and Ron's being mental about it stuck in my head, I couldn't think of another way to work that out. I've always loved the fact that Ron is scared of spiders, because so am I. ;)

I liked your drabble, too. Ron and Hermione would definitely both go mental planning a wedding. ;)

Good luck to you, too! :)

I had yours at #1 till I read the last drabble...I'm sorry, but the pun at the end won me over!

Boooo on adhesives! I'm having a harder time healing from the bandages put on my biopsy sites than the actual incision! ((((hugs you)))

I have my ticket for Wednesday in hand. Are we still on for 3:40?

I'm excited that I was #1 at any point! :) I thought the last drabble was awesome, too, especially because of the pun. ;)

Your drabble made me laugh because I have friends who got engaged sort of like that . . .

They asked me if I was allergic to adhesives, and I said "Not that I know of" because I haven't ever had any on before except for bandaids. I should have mentioned that my dad is allergic to adhesives . . .
*HUGS you back!*

We are definitely on for 3:40! What time and where do you actually want to meet so we can find each other? We should probably plan to get there early, I don't know how crowded it will be, and that will give us time to talk anyway. I think winkielovegood is coming, too. I need to get my ticket . . .

I don't know how crowded it will be....perhaps it would be best if you went on in and got a seat. I don't get off till 3 PM and it takes almost 30 minutes to get there from USSRC (depending on the traffic on Bob Wallace). I've told my evening clerk that I must leave right at 3. She'll shove me out the door! You'll be the one with the big lions hat, right? ;)
Jul. 13th, 2009 05:01 pm (UTC)
If I had a lions hat I would wear it. Or even if I had a stuffed lion that could sit on my head. If I purchase one before Wednesday, I will let you know. ;) How about if I promise to wear red, and I'll save you a seat, preferably near an aisle if I can manage that? And I'll PM you my cell number if you can't find me . . .

funny fic. You write an even balanced Ron here, loving but stubborn at the same time and I love the idea of Hugo being a squib. I think that could make for an interesting story really.

Thank you! I think I'll finish my Percy epic before I start anything else, but may file that idea away for a future story, or future drabble for rwhg_ldws possibly. ;)

Haha, I love Ron's fear of spiders, even as an adult. Oh, the irony of his son's career. Good work!

Thank you! :)
