    Rubbish by She’s A Star

    Summary: Rita Skeeter’s first article on the Triwizard Tournament leaves Ron distressed, Hermione bewildered, and both of them particularly inclined to bicker. Oneshot, 3,073 Words.

    Why You Should Care: It’s a very rare thing to find a writer who can write a decent Ron, and an even rarer thing to find one whose Trio counterparts are also decent. Ron in this fic is adorable: all his insecurities laid bare, his nuances, his mannerisms. This author really knows her character, she’s really gotten to grips with what makes him tick and it makes for a very satisfying read. Particularly impressive for having been pre-DH.

    Why You Might Not Care: There’s a lot of Ron in this fic, and I know he annoys many. On top of that, it’s a little short for how much it has to say, and I would’ve liked a little more development of Harry and Hermione. But wonderfilly canon-friendly and…just wonderful, really.

    Thanks to: Sara (insanguinare), for pointing this one out to me. *waves*!

      This is a most excellent Ron fic! And so fantastically canon, too. I whole-heartedly second this rec.

      The characterizations in this were quite good, loads of great little touches of canon such as Ron starting to notice that Hermione’s teeth look better. I really enjoyed this and it did sound so like fourth-year Ron.

      Why is it that so many people seem to hate ron??
