    Stacked Against

    Stacked Against by Lady Bracknell

    Summary: At Bill and Fleur’s wedding, Ron seeks advice from the two people he knows who have faced the obstacles he thinks are in front of him, and finds that Gryffindors are nothing if not lucky in love. Oneshot, 3,889.

    Why You Should Care: Lady Bracknell takes her well-used pen — so deft at spinning Remus/Tonks — and creates a Ron/Hermione fic that is just as wonderful.  Charmingly canon characterisations paired with canny heart-to-heart discussion, plus just enough of the Remus/Tonks interaction we expect from Lady Bracknell to be the icing on the cake.  Should prove sigh-worthy for Ron/Hermione shippers and Remus/Tonks shippers alike.

    Why You Might Not Care: Written the spring before Deathly Hallows was released, and takes place at Bill and Fleur’s wedding, which in this incarnation is not crashed by Death Eaters.  Not that that’s anything close to a good enough reason.

      JKR could have written that! If those pesky Death Eaters hadn’t smashed the wedding, I’m 100% sure that’s how it would have played out. Unbelievable job! All the characters were spot-on, especially Lupin and Tonks. I loved Remus trying out “Wotcher” as a greeting-very cute. And, naturally, Tonks dropped the butterbeer. (would anyone have expected anything else?) Great job.
