Hi, I'm here from tag~

Ron is generally not a character who's explored much in fic, and especially not eleven-year-old terrified!Ron. However, you've managed to explore him while keeping him perfectly in his canon characterisation - neither romanticising him nor demonising him, as so often happens to fandom!Ron, so well done with that. Even his dream is perfectly IC. How you do it I have no idea.

It's interesting how you draw parallels between Peter and Ron with the phrase 'an ordinary grey rat'. It makes the reader realise how much Ron could potentially be like Peter; the least brilliant of his group of friends and constantly reminded of that fact, he could just give up and betray them for the sake of having what he wants, for once.

You know you're reading a good fic when it turns you philosophical.

Overall: well done! (Especially for the lack of technical errors - I couldn't possibly articulate how much they irk me.)

Author's Response: Hey Caoty, thanks for the review... I know you're a discerning reader so I'll admit to a few nerves when I saw you'd tagged me!

I absolutely love your philosophizing and to be honest, I hadn't thought about the Ron-Peter link to that extent. It's just another testament to the true strength of Ron's character that he doesn't behave like Pettigrew, but remains loyal and brave. I love him. And, I agree with you on all points, about fandom!Ron and technical errors. I find it extremely hard to read fics filled with errors... I have to admit to losing respect for the story itself! *snob*

Glad you enjoyed this :) (Glad! Smiley face!)
