Tracks, a harry potter fanfic | FanFiction


 Harry Potter

Characters: Hermione Granger, Ronald Weasley (Pairing Ron/Hermione), 

Rating: K+

Length: ~1,800 words

Genre : Pre-during-post Hogwarts and war (basically all over the place timewise). Ron’s POV.

Summary : Ron always wanted a scar.

A/N : I haven’t written a one shot in a while and feel a bit rusty, but this one popped up in my head during the summer and I couldn’t not write it. Thanks to imnotspeakingtoyou for the support and honest thoughts ;) And thank you in-a-new-direction/MsBinns for read proofing and commenting this. Everyone go read and/or reread Australia, she finished it yesterday and it’s 45 chapters of Romione perfection *raises glass*


Ron is a twelve year old knight when he breaks his arm.

It gets mended in the infirmary, but he doesn’t remember it. He only recalls waking up, the sun high in the sky and a huge pile of sweets on his bedside table. A few days later he notices he has a scar under his left elbow. He isn’t sure where it comes from but he doesn’t ask for it to be fixed.

He decides he likes it. It shows that he is not just the sixth boy before the girl, that he’s more than hand-me-downs and red hair.

Plus, he thinks it’s wicked


Back to witches and wizards, and magical beasts!
To goblins and ghosts, and to magical feasts!
It’s all that I love, and it’s all that I need.
Hogwarts, Hogwarts! I think I’m going back—

Q: oh my goodness i can't believe "Australia" is finally done. ^__^ congrats! I loved the whole story and am so grateful you've written it. You must write more Romione, it would be a crime not to haha! (like maybe fastfoward a bit with a little oneshot about Hugo meeting Hugo? I loved absolutely loved Hugo and the implications that went along with his name!) Thank you again for an amazing story <3


Neither can I!  Thank you for reading and for the congrats!  I honestly feel like my readers deserve a congrats for sticking with a story for 3 years.

I think I’ll miss these characters too much not to write anything more.  I don’t think it’ll be a story the length of Australia, but I’ll never say never.  I actually did write a couple things this summer, including one with Hugo that may or may not have included a baby…

I did love writing him so much and became pretty attached to the character.  I love that most of my readers seemed to love him too.  Thank you so much! I’m still so grateful for all my amazing readers! Y’all are the best.


Q: I'm going to get drunk. And it's your fault! But thank you! Thank you for this story. I hope someday I will be able to read your next work. Maybe even buying it at the bookstore. Спасибо за жаркую "Австралию" из холодной России.


Thank you! Hope you were feeling okay this morning! In all honesty, I woke up feeling a bit empty now that it’s all over. 

You’re very kind to suggest I could get published, but I don’t think I have the time or fortitude for that kind of endeavor.  I did work on a couple things this summer though so keep your eyes out! 


Q: Just finished reading Australia! All I have to say is good job, that was one of the best fics I've ever read. I hope you continue to write because you're truly amazing! Thank you for keeping Ron and Hermione alive after all this time! Sometimes life gets busy and I forget just how wonderful these charaters are but your fic helped me remember that! You are AWESOME! I'm having a drink right now and I'm toasting to you! Cheers!


Thanks, anon! That makes three. It’s officially an Australia release party now.

I’m so glad my story could keep some of the magic of HP and these wonderful characters alive for you. It’s one of the best compliments I could ever receive.  I will probably continue to write, but I can almost guarantee it won’t be a story like Australia.

Thanks again for the kind words. YOU are awesome!


Cheers to in-a-new-direction and Australia!


Consider this my toast to you as well, happy belated 21st!



Q: I hate you so much right now, okay? Like I hate you and I love you and I just cannot deal with my dashboard right now. I'm skimming over your answered asks because I know if I read them I'll start hyperventilating and feeling too many feels and just HOW DARE YOU. Anyway, you probably don't give a shit but thanks. Thanks for helping me keep this alive in my heart.


I would reply privately, but then this message would disappear forever and I most definitely give a shit. I hate and love that this is all over.  The champagne is the only thing keeping me from hyperventinlating.

Just in case y&#8217;all thought I was kidding. @
