Hello, I'm here with your review ;D.

I am impressed. A story with Percy as a main character never struck me as a story I would want to read, just because...well you know...he's Percy. However, you did a fantastic job of portraying him in a different light; your perspective of how he perceived the war, his family, and his betrayal was a breath of fresh air. Fantastic.

I really wanted read how he went back to his family, but the open ending was just as good. I forgot about Penelope Clearwater, but it makes so much sense if you think about the climate of the second war. Muggleborns were dying and being interrogated, and Penelope was one of them. It must have broken Percy's heart knowing he was backing up the Ministry, when it was the one that was causing it all. Even if they did break up...Percy and Penelope were together for years; there was probably some feelings there :).

So there you have it; I really have no criticism. I didn't notice any grammar errors, but I wasn't watching out for it. You should continue writing about Percy, or lengthen this one. Do something! Please :( I mean you don't have to, but it would be pretty boss. Percy, separating himself from his family; joining a regime that goes against everything he was raised on; becoming the monster he never thought himself to be...I'll stop. But seriously, this was good.

Stop by my thread again :D

Author's Response: I really didn't want that closed ending feeling. I'm just a sucker for open-ended endings and cliffhangers, that it doesn't feel right for me as writer to write down one concrete possibility when there are others out there to explore. Also, once I knew what I wanted to be the last night, there was no way I was putting anything after it.

Oh, there were definitely feelings there the way I see it, even if Percy didn't want to openly admit it, which I imagine he didn't want to in front of other people. You've brought into my mind the prospect of writing more about Percy. We'll see, as I've got another novella length going on right now, and a short story coming up about Barty Crouch Jr. But I certainly love this voice for Percy that I've found, and I don't think this is the last of him you'll see from me!

Thank you so much for reading and reviewing!
