Oh Percy...

I have always had such a soft spot for Percy, maybe because I can see a bit of myself in him. Not the leaving one's family part, but the stiff, uptight, rule-following side. Not something I'm proud of, but it's there.

This story just about broke my heart, reading how you describe Percy feeling about his family. I'm always reading or telling stories from the other side of the coin, the rest of the family poking fun at their funny, uptight brother... It's really not as much fun when you turn it around and look from his point of view. It's actually rather heartbreaking and makes you realize the Weasleys, as much as I love them, are not perfect. It takes to sides to drive a wedge.

I am so glad that Percy came back. That he chose his family and saw that he was in over his head.

Thanks for this great story that really made me think and tugged on my heartstrings at the same time.

Now, on to George.

Author's Response: Rest assured, you're not the only one with some Percy in them. I've got some too, and I've also always had some warm fuzzies reserved for him :). I think most people do tend to see Percy as an object of ridicule, because that's how Harry sees him and we're looking through that lens as we read the books. But I wanted to explore a defining moment in his life (or my imagining of one, anyway), and make him a real person. And since I like him, I wanted to show him redeeming himself :)

Thank you for this! I'm so happy you enjoyed it :)
