YOUR PERCY IS ADORABLE. ♥ I hope you know just how hard I was laughing when I was reading the conversation in his head between all the members of his family, because that is brilliant, and it's almost absurd enough to be real, that Percy would carry little mental versions of them with him. You tell me I need to keep writing Weasleys, but then you write So, Listen..., and then Fred in Run, and now this, and you should just know that you need to take your own advice. Because seriously. There is just something about the way you write the Weasley family that isn't like anyone else writing about them, and it's something that needs to keep happening.
I think one of the best things about this story for me, right now -- and it was present in the last chapter too, but I don't think I really mentioned it -- is just how readable it is. That's something a lot of your stories have, mind, but for some reason it's really prevalent in this one. I have not yet, in either chapter, felt like I've read enough. THE WORD COUNT IS LYING TO ME, THAT WAS A SHORT CHAPTER.
I did feel really bad for Percy, though, because basically... he kind of sucks in this story. And this time, it's not even his fault that he sucks! Why don't people just buy his sandwiches and cupcakes? They don't need to throw things at him. So rude. (I would buy cupcakes from Percy any day of the week. Just throwing that out there.)
A date! With Audrey! And tea! And no boyfriends! This is so fun, Sarah. I am so, so glad that you're writing this. You said in your last response that I don't have to read things of yours... but I do. I don't know where I'd be as a writer without your writing. ♥ Already looking forward to the next chapter!
Author's Response: I think that just about everyone wants to be a Weasley. They are by far my favorite fictional family, and they're so warm and tight-knit even when they're all arguing. I JUST LURVE THEM. I would seriously just like to write about them sitting around at dinner, and the things they might talk about and how they would interact, with no actual plot. Just dialogue. You would probably be the only person interested in reading that.
I think that readability is directly related to how easy it was to write. If it's easier to write, it'll be easier to read, somehow. With the three chapters of this I've written, it came out very fast. Derno why that is.
Poor Percy. :( He is paying his debts to society by trudging along with sandwiches no one wants. People are r00d. (I would buy his cupcakes, too.)
This whole story takes place in like a span of three days. Lulz. I NEED TO WRITE CHAPTER FOUR. And I am suddenly having the epiphany that the reason why I have not written anything in weeks is because we have not raced.
Ermegherd, that is seriously sad.
WHY CAN'T I WRITE ANYTHING OUTSIDE OF RACES.
I must summon your participation so that mojo levels elevate.
♥ Thank you for reading and reviewing. U iz da marshmallows 2 mah hot chocolate cupcakes, which I am presently eating. They iz delish.
