Review tag! Hi Maggie :D

For some reason, I've never been attracted to reading founders' stories but I know you love them so when you came up on the review tag I thought I'd take a look, I eased myself in with this one as it was still Hogwarts era ;)

I have to say, I really enjoyed it! I love your writing style, it flows really well and the spelling and grammar were perfect.

What I loved most about this was that your writing style in the letter completely changed to suit the time it was written, which I can imagine is a very difficult task so well done for that!

I like that you gave Fred a different side, a more emotional side, and yet kept him totally in character. It was sweet that he valued his dads approval more than he realised and I'm so glad he decided to write back to him after all!

I think I'll definitely check out some more of your founders stories now, you may have converted me ;) Great job Maggie!

Author's Response: Hi Dee! What an awesome surprise to get a review on this story! I wrote it for a challenge that never went to judging, and I sort of forget that it's there. But I'm glad you enjoyed it! You're right, it's sort of a "gateway" Founders fic :)

It was a little difficult to switch to a more Founders-y style in the middle of a modern fic. Although, I'm getting to the point where modern-day stories feel much more foreign to me than period pieces, so I'm a little backwards :). I'm glad the letter gave you a good taste of medieval flavor, though.

I sort of dreaded writing Fred, because I had no idea how to do him justice. So I tried to play up some vulnerability while still keeping him the same Fred we know from the books. Glad to know you thought it was at least somewhat successful!

Woop, a Founders convert! That's so exciting! Thanks again for the awesome review, Dee!
