rwhg_ldws Round 2, Challenge 3 Drabble

I was really thrilled not to get voted out this week! All of the drabbles were so good the voting was really difficult. And very close (if I did the math correctly, which knowing my math skills . . .) Anyway. The prompt was "From an outsider's point of view", and I tried something different, so I am glad it didn't completely crash and burn. ;)

499 words

“I can’t believe it—our baby brother and Lavender Brown?”

“That’s what Ginny says, and since Ron didn’t deny it . . .”

“I wondered where the lovely Miss Granger was spending Christmas. I’ve gotten used to having her around.”

“It’s been awhile since we’ve had a holiday without her. I thought Ron would have taken his head out of his arse and asked Hermione out by now.”

“Not while he’s otherwise occupied with Lavender.”

“Everyone can see that Hermione and Ron have fancied each other for ages . . . except for the two of them.”

“It must be confusing to find the love of your life at age twelve.”

“True, that. Hermione’s brilliant, but for ‘the cleverest witch of her age’ she’s quite thick when it comes to fancying Ron.”

“He IS a Weasley after all. Even if he is the worst of the lot, all Weasleys are quite a catch which can be rather intimidating. . .”

“We have a brilliant sense of humor . . .”

“Our freckles make us devilishly handsome . . .”

“We’re stylish dressers . . .”

“And have dead sexy ginger hair!”
“And have dead sexy ginger hair!”

“Passing over Hermione’s thickness about Ron, we could use her brains for the shop.”

“If she would help . . .”

“If she were family, she’d help, but if we have any hopes of snagging her as a sister-in-law someday, Ron is the one who really needs help . . .”

“He needs to avail himself of our extensive repertoire of knowledge about ‘the fairer sex’ . . .”

“He must reap the benefits of our hard-won experience . . .”

“He should read Twelve Fail-Safe Ways to Charm Witches!”
“He should read Twelve Fail-Safe Ways to Charm Witches!”

“Birthday present?”

“Yes, but since it’s his seventeenth, we’ll get him something else, too.”



“Blimey. I don’t want to see Ron looking that bad ever again.”

“Me neither. Some birthday. Our younger siblings should be safe at Hogwarts!”

“Now you sound like Mum. Ron’s going to be fine. That’s the important thing. Was I imagining things, or did you hear him ask for Hermione?”

“It was more ‘Er-My-Knee’ but yeah, I heard him.”

“Think she did?”

“Maybe. Might help if she heard that, but he’ll still need Twelve Fail-Safe Ways to Charm Witches.”

“Well give him the book later . . .

“Good plan. There’s not enough privacy in the hospital wing.”


“Did you see Ron holding Hermione?”

“Yes. Way to put the moves on a crying girl at a funeral. Talk about bad timing.”

“He was comforting her as a friend.”

“Friend? Right. He needs even more help than I thought.”

“Hermione will be here for Bill’s wedding in a few days . . .”

“And weddings create a romantic atmosphere! We should take advantage of that. Let’s give him the book now.”

“Oh, Ickle Ronnikins! We have something for you!”
“Oh, Ickle Ronnikins! We have something for you!”

Brilliant! I love the twins and I love how you wrote them talking about Ron and Hermione. You had their thoughts completely in sync and I thought it was rather clever how we don't know which is Fred and which is George. I also find lots of people tend to make the twins finish off each other's sentences in an unreal way (e.g. "Ron doesn't -" "-deserve this.") but you have them adding to the conversation in what I thought was a realistic way.

Thank you so much! I love the twins, too, and I'm glad their conversation rung true. :D
