Hello! Congratulations on getting Featured One-Shot at TGS! I must admit, this thoroughly deserves it :)

I love Percy, I think he's really, really wonderful. He really does get completely blinded by some all-consuming force, which I guess in the end is just his own ambition. I think I like him so much though because he realises how wrong he was and though it hurts his pride to return he does so anyway. He knows deep down his family are important to him, and I love that you've replicated that in this piece, and so well too!

I love the starry, almost celestial and dreamlike imagery. Again it really impresses the feeling that there's a great omniscient power guiding all of this, and it's heightened by the bits in the brackets, inspiring even more doubt and drive in Percy. I also really love the way that at the end I feel as though we have come around in a full circle and yes he is repeating what people think of him but he knows better. Really, really lovely :)

I really enjoyed this! Congratulations, again :)

Author's Response: Thanks so much! And thank you for reviewing this, too -- I saw Lily had written 'Bereft' as a gift for you, and seeing you over this way as well was really awesome, knowing you were a Percy fan. :) I'm glad you enjoyed this!

You and I seem to think of Percy in exactly the same terms! And I think that's important, because while he is repentant in the end, by no means do I want to gloss over the fact that he /did/ make mistakes, you know? It's the same way with Snape, really. And I really appreciate your comments on the imagery, too! There was something that tied it all very much together in my mind -- I'd been wanting to use the 'ladder to the stars' line for nearly a year, and getting the 'Stardust' title cinched that. :D

Thank you so much for taking the time to review this for me, once again! It really is so appreciated, and it's always awesome to hear such lovely things, no matter what. ♥ Hope to see you around soon, Laura!
