Wow. This was so poetically rendered and just came out so beautiful on the tongue of my mind. I literally savored each line. This was my particular favorite: "small comforts were the jewels of the earth. " There's something so simple yet true about that statement.

Percy is a character I love seeing others write. Mainly because he is so not a Weasley throughout the books until the very last.

The viewpoint of his return being shadowed was one that I hadn't really looked at previously but it's true. Here he is, coming back to the bosom of his family in the middle of a the last battle and then being witness to his brother's death. The joy of his homecoming overshadowed by the grief of the loss. That's very bittersweet.

Absolutely lovely.

I'm so glad that you enjoyed the language here! I've always been really interested in poetry and while I can't say that YEAH I"M A REAL POETIC PERSON WOO ME, poetry influences a lot of my thinking and the way that I choose to construct a story. I have a hard time with simple sometimes, but for whatever reason it was enough for this piece :)

I never really thought to sympathize with Percy until I was seriously considering writing this. He's very easy to grow to hate and despise because in a way I always thought that in his position I would never have done to my family what he did to his--when I took the time to rescind that opinion and actually get into his shoes, things changed for me.

The return as a broken thing was something I never thought about before, either, and didn't actually think about until I wrote about it! It's weird how writing does that sometimes.

So glad the story was worth reading for you!! Thanks for leaving me a review, I appreciate it :)
