Hello! I'm apondinabluebox from the forums, here for a review swap!

Oh, the feels I'm getting from this one-shot are indescribable. It was absolutely adorable seeing Percy as a child. You managed to capture their canon selves perfectly; Molly being stern yet loving at the same time was just beautiful! It's definitely something that could be described as a "missing moment" from the HP series, so well done to you on that!

Inquistive Percy is so adorable! I remember telling stories to a little girl who I used to babysit, and she was full of questions too! The way Molly makes mistakes is so accurate considering that she's creating a story off the top of her head, and the way she scolds Percy for interrupting her and making her flustered is so believable!

I have to say that this line, Thats a story for another night, she pressed on. Far into the future. With your father, because Im not telling it...", was absolutely priceless!

I do have a question though: while I can understand Fred and George needing more space than Percy so they wouldn't have needed his room, why didn't the Weasleys make Percy move out for Ron's birth? You say that Molly and Arthur explained to Percy that Ginny needed to be near them because she would cry a lot as a baby, but what about Ron? Although I'm probably just nitpicking here, considering that I can't find any other flaws in this amazing little one-shot!

And the ending was oh-so-sweet! I love how grown-up Percy still leaves his wardrobe door open! :D

Author's Response: Hi, there!

Molly's a tough line to walk. She's so stern, but at the same time so full of love, and I liked imagining what she might have been like when her children were younger. A sleep-deprived mum and a young Percy with a fear of goblins made for a fun evening of writing for me.

I think in my head I had Ron living with someone else at the time; or maybe Ron shared the room with Ginny? I can't remember. It's confusing me to think about it, so it's probably a plot hole. XD

Thank you for reading and reviewing!
