REVIEW TAG!

This short story collection looks super intriguing! From the summary, I'm thinking that we'll get to see a new side of the Weasley men, which is exciting.

I like that you've opened with Percy's story. I think he's often pushed to the side because of the choices he's made. I really loved the way you've characterised him. You can see why he was sorted into Gryffindor - his pride, his ambition, and the way in which he recognises what's most important to him - one quality that I've always considered to be sort of the definition of being a Gryffindor.

Your choice of Aberforth as the "messenger" is also very interesting, because he's also quite an ambivalent character. The way you've plotted their relationship has a very interesting dynamic - one that doesn't seem like it'd work, but makes sense on further thought.

This internal recount style is also very appealling. Are the other two stories written in the same style, or is each defined differently? Either way, I'm looking forward to seeing where this'll go!

Author's Response: Hi! Thanks so much for coming by! Sorry it's taken me so long to respond, but I definitely loved getting this review :)

I really wanted to try my hand at writing Percy, because like you said, he's so often overlooked. I'm glad you enjoyed him! I felt like his good qualities needed to come through.

The Aberforth thing just sort of came to me; there wasn't really much thought behind it, but it seemed to fall into place. Haha, don't you love it when that happens? :D

I'm planning on writing the other two in the same style, and I hope it works well. Percy's voice seemed to lend itself to this kind of writing, but I'm not sure about the others. We'll see though! I hope you enjoy the updates when they come.

Thanks again! This review really made my day! :)
