Aww, a Won Weasley story. He can be so adorable despite how hot-headed he is most of the time. I think youíve really captured him here. I like that you caught him in the middle of one of his selfish moments and then show us how he kind of learns from that. The little visits from the family show that they really do care about Ron and it kind of makes my heart ache that he doesnít quite see that fully.

There was a little bit of a typo in that at the beginning somewhere Ron thinks of his wand as Charlieís and then when heís talking to his dad he says itís Billís. I donít remember myself who the wand was handed down from but just thought I should point it out.

Youíve gotten the feel of being nervous before oneís first day away from home. The talk from Arthur got me feeling a little choked up because you got dad so perfectly nailed. Even to the point where the father is all emotional himself but the kid misses it. It feels so nostalgic and Iím not a dad or even close to being a parent!

A short but sweet one-shot.

Author's Response: Hey thank you for reading and reviewing!
I'm really glad that you feel I've captured a bit of Ron here, that's a lovely thing to say. I know what you mean about his family caring about him so much... to me, the Weasleys are essentially about love, despite the odd tears and tantrums! And it's ok, we know that Ron gets there in the end!

Oh my, nice catch with the typo! It's meant to be Charlie's wand. I would never have caught that one, have edited it! Thank you :)

I just know and remember the feeling of leaving home- I went to boarding school when I was 8 years old - so I tried to capture some of that feeling in Ron's evening before Hogwarts.

Arthur means a lot to me- in fact, all dads do, and Arthur is the epitome of a good father- so I'm glad you feel I got some of his 'daddiness' here!

And baby, this ain't no one-shot. Chapter 2 is in the queue as we speak :)

Thanks so much for reading and reviewing! Xo
