I don't think I can say how much I enjoyed this story! I was just popping in to read your entry for the 'Ronald Weasley Challenge'.

I love how it started with 'Babbity Rabbity' and Ron being read a bedtime story - it seemed such a realistic routine that you can imagine Molly fulfilling. The idea of Arthur deciding to tell Ron about Harry Potter as a bedtime story is brilliant; and I loved how Molly scolded him immediately. The characterisation of both of them was spot on! It really was a fantastic first chapter!

I think you've left a great age gap between each chapter; you can clearly see Ron developing but still remaining as part of the character we all know and love.

At first I thought Fred and George were bullying Ron, as is to often portrayed on HPFF, but I really liked how instead they were playing with him. Especially playing 'Harry Potter beats You-Know-Who'; the way Ron is shown in PS (or SS), it's obvious that HP has been a part of Ron's childhood. You showed this brilliantly!

The idea of Ron wanting a twin to play with, and offering to share his room with Harry is so cute! I've always thought Ron would feel left out; his options being Percy and Ginny. Molly handled the situation in true Molly character! Your characterisation really is spot on! :)

I think my favourite part of your story is the relationship between the twins and ron; it's often portrayed as them picking on Ron (which.. is true) but you've also clearly shown the brotherly bond that's also shown in the series.

I really loved this and would love to read more! Are you planning on carrying on? Hopefully the results will be up soon (I've just got to review every entry first! :P). Keira :)

Author's Response: Thank you so much for reading and reviewing! I just loved your challenge (especially since I love writing Ron and really hate when people turn him into a terrible person in fanfics). I'm so excited to get second place! Thank you so much! :D

I'm really glad that you liked the family dynamics and thought that they fit in well with what we know of the Weasleys. I just love that family, so I try really hard to keep them as close to canon as I can.

The twins are constantly pranking and teasing everyone, but they are never really cruel (with the exception of Umbridge and probably the Slytherins...). I very much see them having the typical "No one messes with our brother but us" mentality. They can be really good brothers when necessary.

I am hoping to continue this with missing moments scattered throughout the seven books, but I'm having a hard time narrowing down what to write and figuring out how to go about it. Plus, that means that it'll soon leave the realm of cutesy little Ron, which is a shame, because he was so much fun to write :P

Thanks again for your challenge and for leaving such a lovely review!
