Review:Santa!! says:
Well hello- apologies for the lateness. Between the archives and my Internet access, I haven't been able to get much in. Anyway, hohoho, I'm here with a few little gifts!

This was fantastic and cute, and lovely! I adore the Weasleys, and this was such an adorable portrayal of them. Arthur telling Ron about Harry and the war reminded me of the way my grandfather used to tell his war stories to me- abridged, and just like that! It was very realistic, and I thought it was great that it was Arthur, rather than Molly, telling Ron, as Molly is usually the only one shown with the kids.

The last paragraph made me smile, too! The opening line was also fantastic, really, it sort of set the scene for the whole chapter, but it was trés hilarious too. I can just imagine Molly saying it hehe.

I also really thought you portrayed Ron well. He seemed vet realistic for his age, not too young or too old. I think many fanfiction authors have trouble portraying younger children, so you did very well there.

Merci Beacoup, and Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year,
The elusive and secret Santa.

Author's Response: Speaking of lateness...sorry it has taken me so horribly long to respond to these reviews. Thank you so much for leaving them and for being my Secret Santa *hugs*

I really love the Weasleys, so this scene was so much fun to write. Little Ron was especially fun. I haven't written a whole lot little kids, but I have done quite a bit of babysitting in my day, so that might have come into play when writing how little Ron spoke and acted. I'm glad you enjoyed the "abridged" version of Harry's story. I wasn't sure how well I had written that. It was a bit trickier than I anticipated.

Thanks again for this lovely review. I really appreciate you reading!
