Review:Alopex says:
I noticed one typo: Arthur should be interested in all things about Muggles, rather than all thing about Muggles.

I was rather touched by this story, especially the ending. I suppose it's because we know Hermione did something similar with her parents, and I always thought that must have been incredibly difficult. That was one scene I thought the movie showed very well. Perhaps this is silly, but I feel like Cosmo is having to grow up really fast, and it makes me just want to give him a giant hug.

I also enjoyed the first part of the chapter, when Cosmo and Arthur are in the pub. It's really wonderful how you can be so sparing with sharing details, yet I can still imagine the room and atmosphere very clearly. A cold, blustery day, meeting in a sort of dim pub, whispering over their glasses . . . it does all seem rather secret society ish, doesn't it?

What a fun little detail to throw in about how the Burrow got its name!

Author's Response: Oh thanks! I hate leaving typos, you know that drives me nuts ;) I'll fix it.

Cosmo got a bad lot here, really, but he did what he had to do (I liked Reid helping him out, enjoyed writing that bit in). It's very secret society-ish, and he did have to grow up too fast. Poor guy's only barely out of Hogwarts, so he's only like 18. Just like Hermione. That's a hard thing to do, to send your family away like that. Cosmo's in rather less danger than Hermione was, so he doesn't have to do anything like as drastic as she did. At least his mother and sisters still remember him.

I'm not totally happy about the Burrow origins there, but it was fun to throw in :) Thank you for reviewing!
