amortentia & hope

A/N: This was inspired by a fic about Amortentia, but I can’t remember who wrote it. I hope everyone enjoys my take on it! 


The first time he smelled Amortentia was during the summer before his sixth year. Fred and George had come round the Burrow to celebrate Ginny’s birthday and were planning to stay a few days. His mum had been gobsmacked when she had seen how much they had brought over. There were trunks filled to the brim with prototypes for Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes along with dozens of questionable looking vials filled with potions. Fortunately, she chose to ignore it. She still didn’t love the idea of two of her son’s operating a joke store, even if it was very popular.

Ron Weasley offered the stranger sitting next to him on the train half his sandwich, even though it was all he had.

Ron Weasley sacrificed himself for the good of Harry and Hermione at age eleven, because even then he thought they were more important than he was, and the ones worth saving.

Ron Weasley was Harry Potter’s first friend, and the first thing Harry ever had resembling a family. 

Ron Weasley lived in a cramped house, and wore hand me down robes, and he didn’t even think twice about offering his room and food and family to Harry every break, he offered him every thing he could and gave him everything he had.

Ron Weasley took care of Harry Potter and Hermione Granger when they were too busy taking care of the rest of the world to worry about themselves. 

Ron Weasley stood on broken bones when he was thirteen years old, to tell a man infamous for murder that if he planned on killing his best mate, he would have to go through him first.

Ron Weasley was the person Harry would miss most in the world.

Ron Weasley was a pureblood wizard who, from a very young age, devoted his life to abolishing blood status, even if he didn’t quite understand his own privilege. 

Ron Weasley’s greatest fears and insecurities were tied up in his two best friends seeing him the way he saw himself. They were tied up in the idea, imbedded deeply in Ron Weasley, that he was somehow inferior.  

Ron Weasley gave Dobby his own clothes and socks to be buried in, because he understood how important it would have been to him.

Ron Weasley thought about saving the house elves when everyone else forgot. 

If you don’t love Ron Weasley, The Boy Who Cared, I don’t know what books you read but they weren’t the same ones I did.

the number one argument i hear being used against romione is ‘they’re not intellectually compatible and hermione wouldn’t be satisfied with ron’s mediocrity’ like ?????????? what books have you read????? where are you getting these ideas?????? why are you dismissing someone’s intelligence just because it’s shown in a different way??????? why are you acting like the only way to be intelligent is academically??????? why?????

like there are so many different ways to be intelligent, just because it’s not shown in an academic sense doesn’t mean it doesn’t count. please stop.

Can we just talk about Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Chapter 19: “The Silver Doe”?

Can we just talk about how one of Ron’s biggest fears was not being loved as much as his siblings and his best friend?

Can we just talk about how Ron was totally convinced that Harry and Hermione were together and got along just fine without him?

Can we just talk about how Ron cried after he smashed the locket that was showing him his biggest fears, which included seeing Hermione with Harry?

Can we just talk about how Harry talked him through it and assured him that he loved Hermione like a sister and nothing more?

Can we just talk about the fact that Harry told Ron that after he left, Hermione cried all the time and barely spoke at all?

The Silver Doe is such an important chapter and the movie did not do justice to it.

Every time Harry was at Quidditch practice, learning shit with Dumbledore, learning shit with Snape, in detention, in the infirmary, held up by something to do with his fame, etc. Ron and Hermione were together. What do you think they were doing for 6 years in that time other than getting to know each other?

Hermione doesn’t seem to have any other friends besides the boys, and even though Ron could hang out with the boys from rest of the Gryffindor class of ‘98 (Seamus, Dean, Neville, etc.), whenever Harry resurfaces from where he’s been and seeks them out to tell them what he’s been up to, they’re almost always together waiting for him. y'all think they spent 6 years sitting in silence??

weasley-wheezy

Harry had not heard the others coming through the darkness. Bill was wearing a traveling cloak, Fleur a large white apron, from the pocket of which protruded a bottle of what Harry recognized to be Skele-Gro. Hermione was wrapped in a borrowed dressing gown, pale and unsteady on her feet; Ron put an arm around her when she reached him.

               The first Christmas Eve after The Battle of Hogwarts.

  • Mrs. Weasley getting carried away while decorating because it’s such a welcome distraction from thinking about the loss after the war.
  • Andromeda coming to the Burrow with a baby Teddy for the first time, and he’s never seen this many people with ginger hair and that’s how his hair turns Weasley for the next 12 weeks.
  • George bringing Angelina with him because he doesn’t think he’ll be able to get through the day without Fred or Angelina, and Fred’s very unavailable, being six feet under.
  • Ginny hiding out on the roof, because she can’t go downstairs with Fred not there to perform dumb practical jokes and make her laugh, and she just misses him so much and it hurts so bad.
  • Harry coming to find her and the two of them spending hours just sitting on the roof while Ginny tells stories about her big brother and Harry listens with his elbows propping him up against the roof.
  • Mrs. Weasley setting the table for an extra person who never comes and nobodies really sure, but she maybe set a spot for Fred and couldn’t bring herself to take away the plate.
  • Ron and Hermione holding hands underneath the table the entire dinner while everyone pretends not to notice. 
  • Harry dragging Ginny downstairs in time for desert, and she runs to George the minute she sees him and holds him like he might disappear too. 
  • Nobody wanting to leave, because it might have been a sad Christmas but they were all there and the fear of loss is in them all.
  • Fleur and Bill announcing their expecting a baby, because for all her faults, Fleur knows when Molly needs to hear good news, and even if its bittersweet, she wants her to know.  
  • Molly crying for a half hour on Fleurs shoulder, because Grandchildren. 
  • Somebody getting out photo albums, and it hurts seeing Fred everywhere but they need to hurt for a little while.
  • Ginny coming alive again and telling stories about her brother and George having even more, and Molly crying while she tells stories they were all too little to remember but have heard a million times before.
  • The older brothers staying up with Angelina and Fleur in the living room, talking about whats next and remembering what happened last.
  • Harry sleeping in the same spot on the floor in Ron’s room he always used to, even though they have their own flat in the city now, for old times sake, and Hermione rolling her eyes and hauling a tired, sad, Ginny up the stairs and into bed.
  • Molly falling asleep happy for the first time in a longtime because her kids are home and safe.

In all honesty though, Harry and Hermione would not have lasted long enough to even think about defeating Voldemort without Ron Weasley there. 

Like, Hermione would disappear in the library for whole days and Ron would probably go in search for her and all but drag her to dinner because “You have to eat ‘Mione. Don’t forget to eat.” 

Ron spending his Winter Holidays with Harry instead of with his own family, because Harry needed him more. 

Ron giving Hermione a Weasley sweater because It’s colder out here than I thought it would be and the twins would tease him, while he insisted it wasn’t like that.

And Harry was constantly getting in scuffles with the Slytherins, so Ron, who’s Mum taught all her children household spells, would fix Harry up in their dorm room, so ‘Mione wouldn’t see and get angry. 

Hermione would catch the flu and Ron would take her to Madam Pomfrey, and lecture her gently on how if colds went untreated they could get worse, while Hermione rolls her eyes and she only has the sniffles Ron, it’s not the plague. Please find your chill.

When Harry would start to break,  Ron would get him blankets and sit up by the fire all night,  while Harry pretended nothing was wrong, despite the fact that he was literally always in mortal peril and his emotional state was always frayed.

Ron Weasley kept Harry Potter and Hermione Granger sane and fed and alive.
