House Cup 2014 Review!

I really enjoyed reading this chapter. I can feel just how much Percy regrets leaving his family, and how much it tears him up. I can understand how much the ministry means to him, and why it's his safe haven (especially after living with Fred and George). His love for each member of his family is so incredibly deep. The comparison between the Weasley family and a chain is so powerful. its heartbreaking to think that just after Percy rejoins the family and mends the chain, that the chain will soon forevermore be broken by the loss of Fred :'(

I really like how you started this fic off focusing on Percy, since he is such an underappreciated and complex character.

Author's Response: Hello! I'm so sorry I've left this review unanswered for so long, but RL just kept getting in the way. But I'm really glad you chose this story to review, because it was definitely a departure from my comfort zone.

I imagined that Percy would be looking for a place where people understood him, since his family often struggled to do so. And really, his younger brothers didn't seem to have much interest in trying to understand Percy, which I always thought was a little sad. But he is a Weasley, and all the Weasleys are super devoted to family. I'm glad you picked up on all those emotions that I was trying to convey with him. And oh my goodness, Fred's loss was so incredibly hard to take after Percy had just reunited with the family. Why, JKR, why?? :(

Thanks for stopping by! I really appreciate your thoughts, and I'm happy that you enjoyed this :)
