I really, really loved this story, but there's one problem in this chapter that really irritates me. Can you find it? No? Okay, I'll tell you:
You said, "Three-year-old Ron Weasley" had seen "a handful of Christmases", now, in my experience, three-year-olds do not remember "a handful of Christmases", nor can they make connections and decisions so easily. All of the three-year-olds I know (quite a few), I would not trust with a sticky bun anywhere, much less in bed, under their covers when they are upset.
Sorry about my rant, but it's just my pet peeve, ya know? anyways i can only think of a few words to describe your story they are:


thank you...

Author's Response: I do think that it is important for you to remember that Ron is three -- as, of course, you stated in your criticism -- and that as such, he's a bit of an unreliable narrator. In case you don't know what that is, in layman's terms that means it's a narrator who cannot be trusted blindly to tell the truth. A handful is not a set amount, too, so I think I'll leave that bit in there. :)

As for the sticky buns -- first of all, I think it's a fairly safe thing to say that in canon, Arthur wasn't always the most pragmatic of parents (remember how he wasn't mad that Fred, George, and Ron flew the flying car until Molly reminded him to be?). Additionally, Ron's just undergone a fairly traumatic experience, and although he initiated it, I'd like to think his father would want to comfort him with his favorite treat, in bed or no.

I'm glad that you told me that you enjoyed the story otherwise. :) Thank you for taking the time to leave me a review!
