2 Internal Pining: Ginny's Essay

After reading an interesting essay by Ginny, Harry and Hermione realize that they might need to make some adjustments in order to convince everyone that their relationship is platonic. Excerpt: Hermione’s jaw dropped, for the second time in the last ten minutes, in utter disbelief. “Harry asked you to write an essay on us?” she asked in a monotone. “Not exactly,” Ginny replied, biting her tongue as she finished a paragraph. “I just happen to really have thought this out. And you two just happen to give me a lot of support for my thesis and topic sentences.”

4 Initially, it Was a Brilliant Plan

The chapter in which Hermione becomes less fond of her Head of House, Ron and Ginny scheme, and Harry comes up with ridiculous ideas. Excerpt: "No, it’s perfect,” Harry explained. “If you change your first name, then we won’t have the same initials.” “Harry, I got what you were saying,” Hermione said. “The idea just won’t work.” “Why not?” Harry asked. “Name one thing that’s wrong with it.” “Well, for one, it requires changing my name.” "Your point being?"

5 The Offending Letter

The chapter in which Hermione learns why teenagers constantly complain about their mothers, and that Ron and Ginny most definitely are the bane of her existence. Excerpt: It was Harry’s turn for his face to transform into a magnificent scarlet, as the letter fluttered gently to the ground. “Perhaps we should stay here for Christmas instead,” he suggested. “It might be safer. And all of those sadistic people who are pushing us together should be gone.”

6 In Which Ginny Writes Her Own List

Ginny gets to write her own list for once, and Ron commentates. Meanwhile, the two youngest Weasleys discover someone that could possibly destroy their perfectly laid out plans, and Harry and Hermione make their way to the Granger's house. Harry discovers that Mrs. Granger might want nothing more than for him to marry her daughter, but Mr. Granger would like nothing more than to find a secluded area and bury him alive. Christmas with the Grangers might be very interesting...

7 The Granger Home

Harry learns a bit about Hermione's past, and is shocked after stepping foot into her room. Excerpt: Noticing that Harry was starting at the picture, Hermione explained, “When I was leaving with my parents, I ran into Colin Creevey, who told me that he, in another photo frenzy, had taken a picture of that. I asked him if he could send me a copy after it was developed. All I could think about was how the second war had begun,” Hermione smiled sadly. “I wanted to remember our last day of normalcy."

8 The Granger Home Part II

Hermione unconsciously begins to question her relationship with Harry, while Ginny reveals a side of herself that no one has ever seen before, as well as a look into exactly WHY she gave up on Harry. But of course, as Ron's image had left the scene of all such pictures, it was only Harry who had his arms wrapped around a laughing Hermione, his head resting comfortably against her, a satisfied smile on his face. And though Hermione would admit it to no one, she knew that she would mourn the day when Ron would return to the photo.

9 The Skating Rink

The chapter in which Hermione teaches Harry to skate. “You did not almost die,” Harry said. He was still leaning up against the wall to prevent himself from falling flat on his face. “I caught you, remember?” “Well then, let me catch you,” Hermione said, offering Harry her hands. Harry stared at them, not comprehending. “Take them,” Hermione said impatiently. “I'll teach you how to skate. Let me catch you.”

10 A Perfectly Reasonable Explanation

Events at the ice skating rink appear to be tearing down any idea concerning a platonic relationship that either Harry or Hermione once had. All the while, the two find themselves bending reality to avoid the truth. Meanwhile, Ron seems to be making headway with Luna - though just barely, much to Ginny's annoyance.

11 Her World

Christmas is just around the corner...but when will Harry and Hermione come out of their state of denial? With the help of Mrs. Granger, perhaps sooner than one would think. EXCERPT: "Though, in all honesty, you were always the main topic of her letters, save for a few lines about her studies. You still are.” “I…I am?” Harry asked, a feeling of astonishment overwhelming him. “Oh Harry,” Mrs. Granger smiled pityingly at him. “After all these years and you still don’t get it? You’re her world.”

12 Christmas

Christmas has arrived, and with it gifts, insane relatives, and...a kiss?! Excerpt: “Oh God, Harry,” she whispered. “I…I can’t believe…” Her throat was quickly becoming constricted by a sob, and she bit her lip as tears blurred her eyesight. “Do you like it?” Harry asked hesitantly. Before anyone could blink an eye, Hermione had thrown herself onto Harry, wrapping her arms firmly around him. “I love it,” she whispered into his ear, burying her face into his shoulder as she felt tears stream down her face. “Oh, Harry. You have no idea…”

14 What Everyone Knew

Hermione finally reads the entire List...and she's in for a huge shock. Will everything finally be set right? And what exactly is going on with Dean and Ginny?
