Review:Santa! says:
Hello again from Santa! My sleigh seems to have sped up a little- probably because this story is so very good.

I have to say I found this chapter, and Ron's letter to his mother, fascinating. I imagine Ron might have found it hard to deal with, this hero that his parents had told him of, turning out to be a small, relatively normal boy. I think that the letter was a fantastic way to express this, as it really showed it in a 'words left unsaid' kind of way. I liked it.

I also thought that the little details you included we're wonderful; these moments that I imagine would happen, that were not needed in the books, but create such a full universe.

Hermione's interlude also made me laugh- particularly Ron writing about her in his letter!

I can't wait till you publish the next ( that autocoeected to best- i don't know how you could top this chapter, but I'm sure you will!) chapter,

The most elusive and secret Santa!

Author's Response: had a really hard time writing this chapter. I am a ridiculously sentimental and sappy person and I had to keep pulling back and reminding myself that Ron is not like that. He's not going to write a sappy, insightful letter about the joys of friendship...especially not at age 11. So hopefully this seemed kind of realistic.

I'm glad you liked Hermione's cameo. I mostly wrote it because I wanted to give Ron an excuse to write about her in his letter (I don't think he would have thought to write about her otherwise). Though, part of me thinks that Hermione, having read all about Harry, would find him fascinating and (similarly to Ron) want to become his friend. She just doesn't quite know how to go about doing that yet.

Thanks again for leaving these lovely reviews. I really do appreciate it :) I am hoping to continue working on this story and get more chapters up at some point. I hope you'll check back and continue reading.
