True fact: Everybody needs a man like Percy in their life. He's so adorable! I can't even describe how adorable it was, how flustered he got when George caught him spying on Audrey (for Ministry business, of course). And while I'm at it, your George was marvelously funny, but we already knew that you can write the twins basically better than anyone else I've yet read. I loved the way you explained away Penelope, too, although her being Obliviated is a bit sad. But you know, I always did wonder what happened to her. If Percy felt the need to shield her in the books from his family, she probably meant a lot to him, considering his opinions of his family in his adolescence.
But now I'm rambling.
Audrey, as always, is cracking me up -- you have such a natural gift for writing things that would just seem absurd elsewhere, and you slip them in so casually. ♥ I will always be forever in admiration of the way you write humor. I was grinning like mad at the complexity of her disguise when she went into Oliver's office (trees for hands, lulz). Oh, Audrey, what have you done? I sincerely hope that the Ministry storms into Percy's house without warning. Poor boy. ALL HE WANTS IS A DATE, AUDREY, PLEASE STOP TRYING TO STAKE HIM.
Oliver! Best Oliver. That is all. Love, love, love the fact that he had a small sun installed in his office. :D You need to write more crack!Oliver. I smell a spin off.
Aaand now I'm reading over this review and revealing to myself that it's kind of poor quality. Why does this always happen to me, in reviews to you? ♥ I'm loving this story, of course! These chapters never seem as long as they should; they end much too quickly.
MOAR, PLZ ~
Author's Response: I got the urge to write George here because I had just read With All Things and was feeling particular George-y. Percy is so deficient of humor himself that I have to pad the story with people who have more colorful personalities. But in his own way, I do think Percy is kind of funny. Maybe I'm biased. Yolo.
And now you've made me sad about Penelope. :( I feel really bad about Percy, and the lengths he went to to hide something good in his life from his family because he knew he would just be endlessly teased about it. I wonder how long he was with Penelope. For all we know, they had a long term relationship that lasted through the war. Maybe Penelope even died in the war. Now there's a sobering thought.
Audrey likes to jump across the board from normal to absurd. In the last chapter, she does things that is just complete crack that I cannot even justify, just because that's what came out while I was writing. She kind of goes to the point of no return. Sometimes I wonder at myself.
I REALLY LOVE WRITING OLIVER, CAN I JUST SAY.
♥ u da beez of da kneez. kneezy bees. bees kneez. beezneez. Okay I'm done now.
