Review:Cirque Du Freak says:
This was SO beautiful. I literally have no words to describe how much I adored this. It was such a brilliant thing to write about out - the pov of Percy right after the war and how nothing will be the same and how he would feel after all that had happened.

At the beginning its just a tangle of mismatched thoughts and its confusing and you have to pick through it and I LOVED that - mostly because I love being all confusing to my own readers when it comes to the prologue of a story or the better half of it.

Once you really find out its about Percy you really wish you could go back, because even though he eventually finds love and he becomes a happier person you know that its something he's going to have to live with for the rest of his life and I find that so sad.

I absolutely adore Percy - even in the books when he was all pompous and I never really gave up on him. You've done a fantastic job on this!

Author's Response: AW thank you! I have told everyone, haha, but I literally sat down and just /wrote/ this. It sort of flowed out of me because I realized, while I was writing it, how I really felt about Percy.

Occasionally my tendency to write complicated and not-making-sense sentences pays off :P for this one though a lot of it was on purpose, as much as anything can be when you write something in the throws of a muse-given inspiration.

i cannot imagine, even after writing this, being percy after the war. i'm not particularly--er, i don't know, /prone/ to guilt for things. in fact, i'm a master of denial in real life. but i just get this overwhelming feeling of guilt and hopelessness when i imagine percy in this scene, and even whenever he thinks about it for the rest of his life. we all forgive him in a way because we know he's just human and he was young and everybody makes mistakes. but i guess i see him as dumbledore in a way, dumbledore who could never forgive himself for his ambition and the way that it sacrificed his younger sister. i think percy and dumbledore are really alike. dumbles was probably an unconscious inspiration for this piece, actually, now that i think about it.

i'm so sorry it took me so long to reply because this is a lovely review and i appreciate it so, so much!
