    Along The Way

    Along The Way by Elizabeth Culmer

    Summary: Idealism is hard to balance against the rest of life. Oneshot, 6,000 Words.

    Why You Should Care: Many times, it is difficult to write the Trio as adults; in this piece, I felt Hermione growing up, and it was beautifully done. This is a realistic story that follows her on her journey, not only to adulthood, but through it. I’m not personally the most interested person in the Trio as opposed to other characters, but this captivated me; I felt that the characters in this piece, most of all Hermione, were kept true to themselves while aging just right. The story felt honest (which is an achievement, considering the universe we’re playing in), and the end gives the most excellent feeling.

    Why You Might Not Care: As the author warns, post-DH interviews are disregarded, and this may bother the greatest of canon-sticklers. Also, you may not really care about the trio, at all. Otherwise, this is wonderful, and you should definitely give it a read.
