that was a brilliant character analysis, how did you get the idea to do Percy? I would love to read what you come up with for the older Weasley men,( Bill, Charlie and Arthur), especially on this same topic. would also like to read another longer fanfic from you.

I think I'll echo you here, I hate that guy! This was really well written, the style and language used was just so Percy. Great job.

I do believe this is one of the best character analyses I've ever read! "Sartorial god"...I love that! I realize this was an exercise for you, but I do hope you continue to write, because you're so good at it!

Author's Response: Nah, writing, to me, is not an exercise. It is painfully ripping my soul out and hanging it up for the whole world to see and judge! That's why I don't write often...and that's why reviews like yours give me courage. Thank you very much!

That...That...That... *is at a loss for words* How DARE he insult Harry!! 10/10

Author's Response: Well, he certainly is a...a...*is at a loss for words*, isn't he? Yup...a total prat. In every way, shape, form or fashion. But he is pitiful, too. Still don't like him though! ;-)

I agree, this is a gorgeous fic about a horrible and dull person! Who'da thunk it? Despite your warnings in the summary, I found it to be quite funny. "Nose searching for loftier heights..." I swear I chuckled! Though Percy is devoid of humor, the narration makes me grin. Your title is both unique and very fitting, and your prose and vocabulary are pleasantly more sophisticated than one is accostomed to seeing in fanfiction. The only thing I disliked was the way Percy seemed obsessive-compusive...didn't float my boat. Perfect ending, sad, but not too sad. Ever since OotP, I've known that Percy is a git and he can't possibly reconcile. An excellent character study! Now I'm off to read your other fics....[evil cackle sounds].

Author's Response: Hi Grey Lady Grey! Nice to hear from ya! Confession time: I figured someone with a broomstick so firmly stuck...erm...uh, well... My father had OCD and I figured Percy had to have had a (un)healthy touch of it to act the way did. The hand-washing was personal experience so I added that as an example. Trust me, it can get much worse than that! Sorry you didn't like the reference, but it seemed the only explanation for the aforementioned broomstick. You are the first to really 'get' the ending...sad, but not too sympathetic. You know he is hurting inside, but don't quite CARE! LOL! Oh, sorry, off on my tirade again. I just hate the guy. I also look forward to any 'evil cackle sounds' you may issue! I am just thrilled that you read my work and actually enjoy....Wheee....'Happy dance'

There are so many gorgeous lines in this, I don't know where to begin. I think these are my favorites: He had learned this from Bartemius Crouch. Even though he had been a maniac that had smuggled his Death-eater son from Azkaban and kept him hidden for years, the man had been a sartorial god. and The well-worn copy of Prefects Who Gained Power drew his eye and he sat at the table to peruse the already memorized text. Poor old Percy, alone on Christmas Eve. He should visit his mate, Ebenezer Scrooge. Well done, Wiccan!

Author's Response: Laudomia, my dear! So great to hear from you again! You did pick up on my very favorite line...I was rather proud of 'sartorial god'. Forgive my self satisfaction, but I really chuckle at that. Thanks so very much for reviewing! Your comments always mean a lot to me!

when i first read the description "There is no humor...nor dialogue. i was a bit shocked because ur stories always possesed these traits but i have to say that it didnt take anything away from this one shot. Infact, if anything it made the character more real and kept the essence of his personality truly there. I honestly can say i enjoyed this story very much and the many ways that you managed to get Percy's character down by use of empasizing his behavior with the towels and his environment. The ending was really good on how he tried to deny even a tiny hint of emotion towards his family by brushing it off as a cold. I've said this many times before but it doesnt count for any less, it's as true now, as when i first said it: you are truly a very gifted and talented writer. i do hope that u continue to write because i enjoy your stories very much. :)

Author's Response: Bless you, Sweet! I had to add that warning in the summary because my first two reviewers wanted more action and I didn't want to mislead anyone else. It is only a character study and an exercise in writing. Since you know my style, you surely understand how bloody difficult it was to not use humor and dialogue! This was hard, but hopefully helped me grow as a novice writer. Angst is very difficult for me. I'm so glad you thought I captured Percy! There has to be a 'logic' as to why he is like he is and I wanted to find that. Thank you, from the bottom (and top!) of my heart for your continued support!

Guess what? I hate him too....hehehe....anyways I also found it a bit dull, and while it's true that Percy is dull, I think you could have used a big event in there somewhere to liven it up a little......still though...the ending was great. I love how he was in denial at the end and decided to go to a healer.....

Author's Response: Well, my purpose for this wasn't to be lively...just a really sad peek into the mind of someone who is in complete denial. You are the first to have caught that! He could never admit to himself that the tear was from sadness and alienation from, he would have to blame it on a cold. I really appreciate the time you took to read and respond. Thanks!

Not too bad, it was alright. It just seemed a bit...dull, to be completely honest.

Author's Response: Dull? I should hope so! This IS Percy we are speaking about. It's just a character get into his head. No plot, no humor (not with him, heaven forbid). Just an exercise to see how he thinks. I am very glad that you read and took the time to leave an honest review.
