It seemed he had made the unfortunate choice of building his house upon sand

^ That was my favorite line.

Religion? Yes, please. More. I have become increasingly interested in Wizards and Religion. Were they religious? What do people think? I wrote a Percy/Molly II one-shot that was focused on religion and ever since then...well, this is the perfect story for me.

I adore Percy. I don't think he's given enough credit. No one thinks of the struggle he had to go to. He was determined to make a name for himself and he believed in the Ministry so strongly until it crumbled and he saw it for what everyone else did. He came back to help his family just in time. He wasn't a coward. He wasn't dumb. He was just misguided.

This is a really wonderful, well written story. I'm so glad it's on the 'featured stories' this month because I never would have come across it.

Author's Response: Thank you so much - I really wasn't sure what kind of reaction I'd get to this story, because a lot of people believe so firmly that conventional religion just doesn't exist in the wizarding world, and while I'm definitely not arguing that the Weasleys absolutely are religious in canon, I have interpreted them that way, at least for the purpose of this story.

I felt that Percy's story was just begging to be told with references to religion, him being the prodigal son and all, AND especially considering his middle name. Ignatius? Hello. Famous Catholic saint. Combine that with a story about seeking forgiveness and redemption, and I realized there was a very rich area to be explored here.

Percy is one of my favorite characters, and he's become my favorite character to write. I think he's misunderstood and not treated fairly. I think nobody ever bothers to look at what made him tick the way he did in the books.

Thank you again for reading this, and for your thoughts!
