Song of the week

Here goes the RHr song of the week... may it inspire you!

SWEET-ness Heart Divider #2 by Gasara

Magic - Coldplay

Call it magic
Call it true
Call it magic
When I'm with you
And I just got broken
Broken into two
Still I call it magic
When I'm next to you

And I don't, and I don't and I don't, and I don't
No, I don't,
It's true
I don't, no, I don't, no, I don't, no, I don't want anybody else but you
I don't, no, I don't, no, I don't, no, I don't
No, I don't,
It's true
I don't, no, I don't no, I don't, no, I don't want anybody else but you

Ooooh ooh ooh

Call it magic
Cut me into two
And with all your magic
I disappear from view
And I can't get over
Can't get over you
Still I call it magic
It's such a precious jewel

And I don't, and I don't and I don't, and I don't
No, I don't,
It's true
I don't, no, I don't, no, I don't, no, I don't want anybody else but you
I don't, no, I don't, no, I don't, no, I don't
No, I don't,
It's true
I don't, no, I don't, no, I don't, no, I don't want anybody else but you

Wanna fall
I fall so far
I wanna fall
I fall so hard
And I call it magic
And I call it true
I call it magic

Ooooh ooh ooh
Ooooh ooh ooh
Ooooh ooh ooh
Ooooh ooh ooh

And if you were to ask me
After all that we've been through
Still believe in magic
Oh yes I do
Oh yes I do
Yes I do
Oh yes I do
Of course I do

SWEET-ness Heart Divider #1 by Gasara
Hi everybody!! It's been an exciting week for us Potterheads all around: as you might know, the Quidditch World Cup is taking place in Argentina and Ginny Potter has been reporting for the Daily Prophet. On Tuesday, however, Ginny was joined by Rita Skeeter writing for the gossip column... and as it couldn't have been any other way, Rita was more interested in the arrival of Harry, Ron, Hermione, their families and the rest of Dumbledore's Army than in Quidditch. This gave us some insight (misled as it was, since we're talking about Skeeter) into the current lives of Ron and Hermione, amongst others. And today, both reporters were commenting the match on livestream--well, Ginny was, in any case, while Rita's attention was fixed on what happened in the VIP boxes.

I'm going to paste below only those bits referring to Ron and Hermione and then round up the facts for y'all. THIS IS EXCITING TIMES THERE IS NO DENIAL :aww:

Dumbledore's Army reunites at Quidditch World Cup Final



In the tent are Potter's two closest associates, the ones who know everything about him and yet have always refused to talk to the press. Are they afraid of him, or is it their own secrets they are afraid will leak out, tarnishing the myth of He Who Could Not Be Name's defeat? Now married, Ronald Weasley and Hermione Granger were with Potter almost every step of the way. [...]
In the immediate aftermath of the battle, Weasley, whose famous ginger hair appears to be thinning slightly, entered into employment with the Ministry of Magic alongside Potter, but left only two years later to co-manage the highly successful wizarding joke emporium Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes. Was he, as he stated at the time, 'delighted to assist my brother George with a business I've always loved'? Or had he had his fill of standing in Potter's shadow? Was the work of the Auror Department too much for a man who has admitted that the destruction of He Who Could Not Be Named's Horcruxes 'took its toll' on him? He shows no obvious signs of mental illness from a distance, but the public is not allowed close enough to make a proper assessment. Is this suspicious?

Hermione Granger, of course, was always the femme fatale of the group. Press reports of the time revealed that as a teenager she toyed with the young Potter's affections before being seduced away by the muscular Viktor Krum, finally settling for Potter's faithful sidekick. After a meteoric rise to Deputy Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement, she is now tipped to go even higher within the Ministry, and is also mother to son, Hugo, and daughter, Rose. Does Hermione Granger prove that a witch really can have it all? (No -- look at her hair.)


Quidditch World Cup Final Livestream



Up in VIP Box Two, Ronald Weasley appears to have become catatonic. Did I just see wife Hermione Granger administer a sharp elbow to the ribs?

Almost all of the Weasley family are supporting Brazil. Certainly nobody can have expected Ronald to cheer on his wife’s ex-boyfriend. Both his children – Rose, who appears to have inherited her father’s unfortunate hair, and Hugo, who has his mother’s bushy locks – are decked out in green, but Hermione Granger is not wearing anything to indicate which team she is supporting. Does she secretly hope to see Krum take the trophy at last? Or is this the kind of diplomatic neutrality one might expect of a ruthless careerist whose long-term ambition is undoubtedly to be Minister for Magic?

Albus Potter has almost toppled out of the VIP box cheering his Quidditch hero. His uncle Ronald seized the back of his robes and saved him from what would surely have been a death of international significance, spawning news stories across the wizarding world.

Harry Potter is cheering every well-hit Bulgarian Bludger, whereas his supposed best friend Ronald Weasley appears to be gnashing his teeth in chagrin. Hermione Granger is yawning. Whether she intends to convey boredom, or is merely exhausted after Dumbledore’s Army’s long night of noisy revelry in the VIP section of the campsite, her Argentinian hosts can only be offended by such blatant rudeness.

A great groan has issued from the crowd, undoubtedly in response to Ronald Weasley flagrantly and openly kissing his wife on the cheek. This piece of disgusting exhibitionism appears to have disgusted spectators – my colleague, Ginny Potter, has just informed me that the crowd groaned because one of the players has sustained an injury.

Cold-hearted Hermione Granger did not notice her ex-boyfriend’s injury immediately, due to the ill-judged public display of affection instigated by her husband, but she swiftly put on a display of concern.

Everyone is on their feet, including the denizens of the VIP boxes – Harry Potter is shouting – if my lip-reading is accurate, Ronald Weasley is swearing –

Ah, that’s better – people are calming down, I can now see the VIP boxes – well, Dumbledore’s Army seems to approve of the victory, Harry Potter in particular seems emotional – with a determined grin on his face, Ronald Weasley conceals his inevitable annoyance that his wife’s ex-love is being feted by the Quidditch world

New facts that we've learnt from this!



- Ron's hair might be thinning slightly, like Arthur's.
- After two years working as an Auror with Harry, he left to work at Weasleys' Wizard Wheezes and now co-owns it. Since George is said to be wealthy, we can assume Ron is also doing rather well financially.
- After leaving the Department for the Regulation and Control of Magical Creatures, Hermione was hired by the Department of Magical Law Enforcement and is now Deputy Head, possibly rising to Head.
- Her hair still looks bushy.
- Hermione might have hypenated her last names, as Rita calls her 'Granger', since the Wizarding world is rather conservative.
- As of 2014, Rose is eight years old and Hugo is six.
- Rose has red hair and Hugo has brown, bushy hair.
- Ron still holds a minor grudge against Viktor Krum, cheering for Brazil with both of their children.
- Hermione is still uninterested by Quidditch, cheering for no one in particular.
- Ron had no problem kissing Hermione on the cheek in public, something that to British standards is big PDA.

What are your thoughts on this new information?


The first article was a big, wonderfully amusing and amazing surprise, but it also stirred some feathers in some aspects. Some headcanons were broken by this information, some people believed JK Rowling was once again insulting Ron (forgetting that this is, in fact, supposed to be written by Rita Skeeter) and some are refusing to see it as canon.
What did you think of it?

Mini challenge!


It'd be wondeful to see our gallery flowing with new RHr fanart and fanfic inspired by these tidbits!
Go ahead and create something, then submit it to the Current Contest folder! (I'll move everything to the general "Ron and Hermione" folder afterwards, as it's not an actual contest) :aww:

Hey, I have a question and I figured this was the group to ask. I've been looking to find a fanfiction with specific elements in it. I'm looking for a story where Ron deals with his insecurities. Now, I'm not just talking about Ron listing his insecurities and Hermione distracting him with a kiss, that's not dealing with them. I mean Ron working through them, maybe even confronting people on how they make him feel. It can be a Romione fic, a friendship fic, something involving the Weasley family, even Ron going to therapy, but I haven't been able to find anything of the sort.

Does anyone on here know of such a fic?

Okay, I haven't read new fanfics in a while, and I don't know if any of these is close to what you're looking for, but here are a few faves of mine that might do:
Turned to real life (I'd started this a while ago but haven't finished reading, so idk how it goes)
5 Lies Ron Weasley Told Himself (tear-jerker, I seem to remember)
Silent Help

Turned to real life is great, unfortunately it is also abandoned. 5 lies is pretty good, rather sad but deep too. I'd never read Silent Help before, thanks for that!
