    99 Problems

    99 Problems by Penny-In-The-Sky

    Summary: Ron’s on the couch as Dr Bill dissects his lovelife. Or something like that. Oneshot, 2,624 Words.

    Why You Should Care: Because it’s a neat little piece about the advice our older siblings give us, and quite a nice introspective piece for Ron about Hermione right when things are really getting ridiculous in HBP, which is always worth a laugh.  I like the interaction between Ron and Bill in this fic — an interaction we don’t really ever get to see in canon or in fanfic, especially considering Bill is so much older than Ron is.  I also think Ron seems about the right age in this piece, and the Penny-in-the-Sky has a pretty good handle on his character; he’s becoming aware of the situation he’s put himself in, but continues to be a boy about it, which many female fic writers struggle with.

    Why You Might Not Care: Ron-fic, and definitely Ron/Hermione motivated.  If your ship is a different ship, this’ll probably annoy you.

      Not gonna lie, I read this fic just because of its title. /LIRL/

      Still good, though. I like Bill.

      I really liked it. But the title / snippet of lyrics made me lirl.

      Any piece by Penny-in-the-sky is worth attempting to read. But this one is definitely of the best.
