    Harry stopped as he looked down at her and realized just how closely together they were standing. It was cramped in the hallway, and her face was just inches from his. He could smell her perfume, something new, and didn’t know if he should move or stay.

    “You know, Ron,' Hermione said casually, reading over the blurb of her book, 'if my wand weren’t up the other end of the table at the moment, I think you’d find yourself with an extra pair of feet suddenly growing out of your forehead."

    22 Chapter Twenty Two

    “Yeah,’ said Ron happily, leaning back in his seat with a dreamy expression, ‘its going to be heaven not having to worry about any of that anymore.”

    8,082 3
    24 Chapter Twenty Four

    25 Chapter Twenty Five

    Tonks snorted. “When in the entire flashback did I ever give you the impression he would be compliant? Like I said before, he’s a total shit. It’s a wonder his parents even like him! But, then again they’re shits too, so shit seems to be a generalization for that family.”

    6,455 1
    26 Chapter Twenty Six

    “The point is, sir, that we can’t do this without you.’

    34 Chapter Thirty Four

    “That’s a good tip. You should teach!”

    10,402 2
    38 Chapter Thirty Eight

    “You mean aside from trying to comb your hair?”

    10,998 1
    39 Chapter Thirty Nine

    “Why did she run off like that do you suppose?” asked Ron.

    “She didn’t want to get wet,’ said Harry, patting Ron on the arm as he made to leave. ‘But I imagine it was already too late for that.”

    8,500 5
    40 Chapter Forty, pt 1

    “Wish I could say the same for you. What were you thinking hitting it with a tree root, you wanker!”
