Review:The Misfit says:
Hi there! I'm apondinabluebox from the forums and I'm here for the review swap! :)

I was permanently grinning throughout this fanfiction! I really like the way you portrayed Ron; he seems really realistic and you can believe that that would be his actual canon reaction if JKR had written that!

A couple of things that seemed slightly out of place: Ron and Dean were friends (when Dean wasn't dating Ginny) so it seems odd that Ron would be calling him Dean Thomas. He might as well refer to Harry as Harry Potter. ;) Another thing was his reference to Voldemort as "Voldy". Ron absolutely hated calling him anything but You-Know-Who, and I know it's post-war and Voldemort's dead but I don't think he would be quite so flippant about the man who started a war that killed people he knew, especially his brother.

I especially like the moment when Harry placed his arms around Ginny's waist; not only is he protecting Ron from Ginny but he's also protecting / hugging their child. There are other ways he could have restrained Ginny without involving the baby, so I think it's quite good to see Harry's love for his family in that little moment. You know the saying that a picture speaks a thousand words? Well, that interaction spoke volumes. :D

I quite like how Ron doesn't mind at first, then the news sinks in and he self-combusts, then Hermione swoops in and once the attention is off Ron, he has the ability to analyze the news and becomes excited at the prospect of being an uncle. I think that Ron is misunderstood in the respect that he speaks before he thinks, and this one-shot certainly displayed that.

All in all, a well rounded fanfiction. And I fully support the invention of waterproof laptops. If they existed, I'd be writing fanfics in the bath! :D

Author's Response: Thank for the lovely review! I really enjoyed writing Ron and I'm glad that you liked my portrayal of him. And yeah, I think Ron gets a lot of heat for speaking before he thinks and that's why some people don't like him! Thank you also for the compliment on Harry's interaction with Ginny :)

Thanks for the pointing out the corrections! I actually have an updated chapter of this in the queue fixing those exact things and it's nice to here that someone will appreciate those corrections.

Thanks again for the lovely review; I'll be returning the favor shortly.
