I love the beginning of this chapter. Introducing the different types of family to set the scene of what the Weasley family actually was with their bonds.

I think you've portrayed the aftermath of Fred's death very well in the eyes of Arthur. The mention of failing to protect him really tugs on the heart strings to make us really connect with him. I love how you've also mentioned the fact about magic not being able to protect them which emphasizes the fact that even though we can't do magic we still go through the same processes of grief.

The idea of the death affecting Percy is shown really well in this with him wanting to punish as many death eaters as possible.

All of the family living again at the Burrow is lovely giving them just a chance to share time together as a family but you play really well on although they have the support of each other as a family, their lives have still been torn apart.

The last sentence is really effective with just the five words ending the chapter. It makes the reader interesting to see how Ron is actually going to cope and how the drink will affect him!

Well done 9/10


Author's Response: Thanks so much for reviewing! I'm so glad that you enjoyed the beginning of the chapter- that was the type of reaction I was hoping to get.

And I'm so glad that you're able to connect with Arthur. For me this story was less based on magic and more on how emotions affect us and so it's nice to hear that those emotions were portrayed well.

I found it interesting exploring the different ways people react to grief through the Weasley family.

And yes- those last 5 words are probably my best "attempt" at a cliff hanger (for they weren't really intended to be a cliff-hanger... It just seemed to be a really good place to end the chapter).

Thanks once again for your thoughtful review!
