Review:Toujours Padfoot says:
Wow. I loved this.

I've never thought about it before, but now I do remember Molly saying that she and Arthur were just about to go check on Harry themselves, if he hadn't replied to Ron's letters by the next day. I think it was all very realistic, and very descriptive. I loved every second of it. You captured Harry's essence perfectly - not too angsty, not too complicated - his personality and your narration of him was perfect. It was exactly like reading him in Chamber of Secrets. Yeah, I said it. You wrote like Rowling.

I loved the little bit about Arthur and Molly arguing about the invisibility booster, and how he wanted to turn down that little road. It was a realistic detail that really made your story come to life. I felt like I was sitting there in the backseat with Harry.

But my favorite part is the emotion I got when Harry hugged Molly. It just...a picture is worth a thousand words, you know? And I envisioned it and felt all warm and fuzzy inside - but sad, too, because Molly is the mother Harry always wanted. He lived with his aunt, his closest relation, but she didn't show him any love or affection at all. And here was this woman he barely knew, already showing him more love than he'd ever been given during his whole life at the Dursley's. It was simple and natural for Molly to hug him and coo over him, but it wasn't an everyday thing for Harry. It would have meant a lot to him. I kind of teared up just thinking about it.

Anyway, enough rambling. I loved this. Jane, you are an amazing writer. 10/10.

Author's Response: =O

I am speechless. It is probably the best feeling in the world to have one of the best HPFF authors (my opinion, but it's pretty much true) say I wrote like my idol. And so I would say thank you, but that doesn't even come close to covering my feelings!

Hehe, poor Arthur. ^^ I've actually gone back and written in a snippet that shows his fondness for Muggles, he's such fun to write. =] And Mrs. Weasley's fawning over Harry is fun to write too, hehe - especially in front of Aunt Petunia.

Merlin. =] This is probably one of the best reviews I've ever gotten... My hands were shaking at the end of your first paragraph. ^^ Oh, dear me... I'm a mess.

THANK YOU, SARAH! *squish* That's all I know to say anymore. =]
