Hello there!

I definitely enjoyed this "silly little one-shot". Charlie Weasley has always been such an interesting character for me and here's a one-shot with him as the main character... And it's about his desire to become a Dragon Tamer, to boot!

I think that you did a fantastic job with this one-shot. Your description was great- it was very easy to visualize Charlie in each of the situations he found himself in.

As well, I really enjoyed your characterization. Charlie's determination and love for his job was crystal clear. Furthermore, his immaturity was also present; his mother had good reasons for not letting him go (even though I agree with him that it was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity) and he shouldn't have chosen a magic carpet bought from a hag in Knockturn Alley as his method of traveling over water/high above land. He could have been hurt a lot worse than he was.

Speaking of which, the turn this story took was unexpected, but ended up working out so much better. If Charlie had managed to go all the way to Romania, the story would have had to have been much longer in order to cope with the fallout.

As it is, I really liked Arthur's role in this. It demonstrated his role as a father in a very good light and fit in beautifully with what we know of him from the books: slightly scared of his wife and more indulgent of his childrens' follies.

I think one of my favourite parts in this one-shot is the concluding line from the first section, the one about Charlie having to find some trainers before he left because the window sill was too cold. It made me laugh - it was such a well-placed bit of humour!

All in all, I think that you did a fantastic job with this one-shot. Everything flowed smoothly together and formed a very well put-together story. Great work! :D
