Hello there! I'm here with your review for the Review Exchange!

This story caught my eye since the beginning, I haven't read a story from Peter's POV in rat form. How he managed all those years is something I will never understand.

I liked that you captured the whole atmosphere surrounding the Weasleys and their hectic home life. It's never easy when there are so many people to organize and when you put Fred and George in the mix, it's a recipe for disaster.

I didn't quite get what the crocodile deal was, but once I realized it was Charlie I think I laughed for a solid 5 minutes, just picturing him walking about like the one in Peter Pan. At least Charlie didn't tick.

There were a few things I really loved. One was the line "This never happened when Percy was my owner". Apparently, Ron was a big part of why things always happened around Harry. The second was how Ginny reminded Scabbers of Lily and he felt that little twinge inside that maybe was remorse. And lastly, the fact that the spell to make something yellow didn't work on the rat, because maybe it was a human?!? Really, a house full of wizards and nobody caught that!

That reminded me of a picture I saw online some time ago, with Molly handing Ron the rat at the beginning of the PoA movie and it was captioned "Ron, don't forget the important plot device!"

All in all, this was a very original idea, having this written from Scabber's POV and I loved everything you did with it. I think you captured the Weasleys as a whole perfectly, but still managed to keep their individual personalities.

One thing I spotted was this:

“The ministry will sought this out,” - I think maybe sort it out? Sought this out has a strange ring to it.

Good job! I really enjoyed it!


Author's Response: Hello! :)

Haha, I have to agree with you there! I wouldn't be able to cope with being so small, and missing out on all the awesome things that humans do.

Thank you! I did try to capture the family atmosphere, and I loved writing each character in the Weasleys. There's such a range of characters in that family, and it was so much fun to write each of their characters! Fred and George are brilliant, and they make the tone much lighter in stories, and their inventions are genius!

I was thinking of that crocodile when I was writing about it! But most certainly NOT a man eating crocodile! I felt so sorry for Charlie when I was writing it, it seems like the embarrassing type of thing that always seems to happen to the Weasleys!

Thank you -- I always thought of Ron not like Harry's 'sidekick' but as a person in his own right. Hahah yeah, that always seemed strange to me in the book when I reread the first one! :P Hahah that sounds like an awesome picture!

Thank you very much for such an awesome review! Yes, "sort" works much better ;)

Sophie :D
