I'm going to sound extremely daft here, but when i read the title of this fic I remembered the poem 'Dog In The Playground'. Don't ask me why, perhaps it was just the vague similarity of someone being spotted where they ought not to be. Anyway, very good, and some days when I'm feeling particularly disgusted by Percy, I can really see him just leaving the death eaters to their business.
Author's Response: Thanks. Actually, I really rather found of Percy, he's one of my favorites, but he has had his moments. Don't recongize the poem, I may have to check it out. Thanks again.
wow..."nothing of anyone's interest would happen tonight." That line really caught me. Percy can be almost evil at times, can't he? "And made him want to wish good luck to the plotter."
I lover your rhymes, too, they're cool.
Author's Response: Percy can be evil, but he can show compassion (his sister, girlfriend). That's why I love him as a character. Rhyming took me forever on this poem, but it is alot of fun. Thanks so much for reviewing!
Percy is a butthead.
Sorry, but he is.
Harry's gonna dddddddddddiiiiiie.
Author's Response: I lot of people don't like Percy. I don't like him as a person, but I love him as a character. I love getting inside "grey" character's heads. Actually this is the Ministry scene in book 5, so he doesn't die that night, but later? Only Jo knows. Thanks a bunch for reviewing.
This is an amazing poem. Percy not telling the Minister about this is JUST the thing that he would do.
Author's Response: Thank you. Percy, Percy, Percy, what are we going to do about him?
I love the idea for your story - Percy, as a character, I think is fascinating... He really would go so far as to convince himself, like in your poem, that Death Eaters in the Ministry wasn't necessarily bad news, just for his job and security. But, at the same time, he is still human. He's definitely not a bad-bad guy. As for the poem itself, it's very good. A few of the lines I find that tiny bit too long and shake the rhythm up a bit - shorten some lines by a syllable or two and it would be even better. Well done though!
Author's Response: Thanks for reading. I agree with your opinion that Percy is a fascinating character. I am personally interested in what is going on in his mind; any doubts or reasons. That is why I decided to make him convince himself to do nothing. I understand your point, also. Thanks for the advice with the rhythm, I haven't had much experience in writting poetry, so it is very appreciated.
