Not by Elektra3
Summary: If something’s just too horrible to contemplate, the mind will refuse to contemplate it. Angst. Drabble, 461 Words.
Why You Should Care: This is heart-wrenching. I don’t know why I usually feel the need to chase a light-hearted fic with pure angst, but here I go again. This is morbid, and horrible, and terrible, but it’s supposed to be and so it’s done its job well if you fall apart a little inside. I found myself falling into step with Ron, refusing to see it or believe it, reaching for some other explanation; and while this fic makes my stomach roll, I appreciate that it was done so deliberately. I hate this fic, and love it because I hate it so much.
Why You Might Not Care: This is hardcore, evocative angst, and even though it’s brief it’s almost too difficult to read. Ron/Hermione shippers will have their hearts shattered, and everyone else’s will surely crack and break in two.
