It was really good until you talked about the homophobe part; it felt a bit misplaced.

You point to a different view about Peter, and that's pretty kickin'. Not many people would ever care to write about him...

Author's Response:
*shrug* If I wrote about Bella, why shouldn't I have written about Peter?

It's only a question now of how long it'll be until I write Bella/Peter....

Amazing. Extraordinary. Perfect. 10/10 I. Am. Speechless. This was a wonderful one-shot, not too long, not too short, and exactly what I imagined Peter to be.

Author's Response: Thank you very much. I'm glad to have lived up to your imagining of him.

*sigh* Such narrow-minded people... I'm really sorry that you've met so much resistance with this story because of that one little thing about homosexuals and such...Then on the other hand I'm a bit more open minded and have little patience for people who make such a big deal about it.

Anyways! I really liked this portrayal of Peter. I never really thought of him as a particularly evil character although he's certainly portrayed that way a lot. You've sometimes got to wonder what pushed him over the edge, but then he could have always been that way like your story suggests.

"And Peter Pettigrew joined the Dark Side because he thought they would win. And he knew that once they had, all those who were not pure would be eradicated with every memory of themselves." This is my favorite part. It sums up what you're trying to convince everyone, that Peter was basically just looking out for himself and his own values. Not Lily or James or anyone else.

All in all- great story! 10/10

Author's Response:
You know, you might view it as a little thing, the homophobia, but it's really a large part of the story. It's the focus for all of his anger and dislike against the Order. See...in my R/S universe, James and Lily are both aware of the relationship. Peter is not (as far as Remus and Sirius are concerned, anyway) and that leaves him quite out of the loop. There had to be a reason for that. And, since this is a man who isn't particularly good at anything, but still considers himself better than Lily (for her being Muggleborn) then it just seemed as a natural progression to me for him to be homophobic

And yeah, that was a bit roundabout. I'm sorry

Well, I doubt that Peter is this way in JK's mind, but there's no question here that a certain level of evilness (from our perspective) is required of Peter to have done what he did. Evilness doesn't require you to be smart or devious or anything like that-it only needs you to do bad things, no matter how might foul them up in the end

Intesting narrative. I liked the beggining lines
\Peter Pettigrew would like the world to know that he isnít a murdering, traitorous, cowardly, evil and stupid bastard.
His parents were happily married long before he was born, thank you very much. No need to drag them into this\

Author's Response: Honestly? I feel as though that is the only redeeming thing to have come out of that story-the opening lines, I mean. Thank you.

Hurt you? NEVER! I may want to hug you with thanks, but never hurt you!

I know I use the words "fabulous" and "powerful" quite often to describe your writing - I'm thinking I need to find a thesaurus and get some new words! Well, they are still applicable here! The books don't give much of a picture to Peter (and definetly not a positive one), but you have done an awesome job giving Peter his own perspective!

Peter's thinking - it has a certain sense of logic to it . . . one that eerily reminds me of ongoing conversations with my father ("Dad, you're annoying me, stop it" "How am I annoying you?" "I don't know, you just are, stop it." "But how can I stop if I don't know . . ." and it gets worse) but I'm rambling off-topic, now. A prime example of how perspective makes all the difference!

Anyway, another fine piece to add to your collection! You are awesome!

Author's Response: I think that the image I portray here is one of a very seriously mentally twisted individual and if the person I portrayed actually existed, I would be really, really afraid of them. Heck, I'm really, really weirded out by the story and I wrote it! Thanks for taking it through to the end!

I liked it. Very different. Stupid Peter. He's weird. I can't write long sentences. Oh well! Awesome story! Bye!


Author's Response: Thank you! Bye!

It's also kind of ofensive to homosexuals at the end.

Author's Response: Again, why I amended the warning. Thank you for pointing that out to me.

It was an alright story until the end, in my opinion but that's because I'm anti-HP-slash. Shouldn't you put in a warning for it?

Author's Response: Well, if you take a look at my profile, the majority of my stories are actually HP slash, which is why I warn for this not containing thoughts that I actually agree with. I did amend the warning though, to say that it contains homophobic thoughts, so thanks for that!

I still dont lke peter! he is a very bad person! Anyways i respect the fact that you thought about peter in a different perspective but i still hate him! he's a murderer, betrayer, he's unloyal and there are many more bad things about him which i will not mention because he does'nt bloody deserve it! (im not saying i blame you or anything but im just mad at peter!) lol! ANYWAYS KOOL IDEA!

Author's Response: Darling, I don't like Peter either. It freaks the living daylights out of me, the way I imgaine him in my head. Thanks for reading, though.

Very interesting, Slian.

Author's Response: I hid for a reason, you know. I really did write it months ago. I'd love to know how you're psycho-analyzing me based on this, though...
