    Highway Code

    Highway Code by Shewhoguards

    Summary: Why Hermione really wasn’t certain Ron could pass a Muggle driving test. Oneshot, 1,639 Words.

    Why You Should Care: Ron learns to drive a car, and it’s a positively delightful story of a pure blooded Wizard learning to do something that’s just about as Muggleish as you can get.  Inspired by a throw-away line from the last chapter of Deathly Hallows, it’s got great characterisation of an older Ron and Hermione.  It’s also very focused and tightly written; the author resists the distracting temptation to stray from the point into other shippy things, and what we get is a funny little piece about Ron doing his best in a world he doesn’t quite understand.

    Why You Might Not Care: It’s light and humourous, and doesn’t really say anything about Ron we didn’t know before.  It’s a funny little story that’s well written and well characterised about the efforts of being normal; it won’t change your world, but it’ll probably make you smile once or twice.
