I quite like the colour green. >.>

But anyway. Your Ron is bitter without being horrible. He sounds human, which isn't always easy to pull off when you're focusing on the negative, so well done. I wasn't entirely convinced that he does actually love Harry as a brother, but then again, I'm not sure if I was meant to.

The tight focus on this one train of thought worked well, too; it can sometimes feel like in these kinds of fic that there is something more that should be said, but you manage to avoid that well.

So, overall, this is a great little one-shot, and I may just read some more of your fic in the future. :)

Author's Response: Hey -- thanks for the unexpected review! Little surprises like this are always so nice to have. :) I, too, am rather partial to the color green, but it worked well here for Ron to hate it.

Quite frankly, a lot of Ron's thoughts in this story are taken from ones of my own -- which might sound horrible, but I've got two sisters my age and it's easy to get lumped together in a group, if that makes any sense. The brotherly affection Ron does feel for Harry (and he really does) didn't make its way into this particular story because -- well, that's not really the thing you focus on when you're wallowing in self-pity. ;)

I'm glad the length worked for you! I love these Every Word Counts one-shots, and that's normally my go-to writing exercise when my other WIPs are feeling a bit suffocating. But anyway, thanks again for taking the time to review this for me. If you dropped back by sometime in the future, well, that'd be awesome!

Great to have a review from you! :)
