Review:Athene Goodstrength says:
Well, this was adorable! I have something of a soft spot for the Weasleys ...who am I kidding? My *soul* is ginger and freckled. I love them. And this little story was just so Weasley-y! Ickle Ron is just the best. You portray him beautifully here - he's cheeky and loving and a *little bit* difficult... I could see that he would become the Ron we know so well.

Your characterization of Molly and Arthur was just lovely. They always have time for each of their children, and are clearly just a fantastic team. The sloppy kiss Ron lands on Molly made me melt a little, and I bet it did the same to her! Your portrayal of Arthur was just as adorable as that of his son.

It's pretty cool to see a moment that's so often implied - magical children growing up knowing Harry's name - particularly with the child in question being Ron! It's a dark story to have to tell a child, but you/Arthur handled it beautifully.

This line made me smile: "there were most certainly a large number of families who would line up to take care of the boy who defeated You-Know-Who" - it's only a matter of a few years before Arthur and his wife welcome Harry into the fold!

I'm intrigued as to what the other stories here are about... really enjoyed this! It warmed me up on a cold December evening :)

Author's Response: Thanks so much for this review! I apologize for not responding sooner.

I love the Weasleys, too, and writing little Ron was just so much fun. I'm glad you liked him.

Ok, this is why I love reviews, because it is so interesting (to me at least) to get alternative viewpoints on stories. I always thought that line was kind of sad, because, although it's true, it's not what happens. Harry doesn't end up going to a nice wizarding family, instead he ends up with the Dursleys. You gave it a much more positive spin. I like that :)

Any time you'd like to read the other chapters, you are more than welcome (even if you don't get a chance to review them.) There aren't many up yet and they're all pretty short.

Thanks again for the review!
