Hi there! I just wanted to say that I liked this story a lot, and have Niffled (recced) it at FictionAlley Park. I hope it gets you some more deserved readers. :)
The 'Niffle post' is:
Author's Response: Hey, thanks! I do appreciate that.
I like how you had Sirius forshadow Peter's betayall. "Big girl's blouse"? hahaha.
Author's Response: Isn't that the greatest phrase? It was fate. I learned it on effingpot and then there it was from John Oliver on the Daily Show, so there was no help for it. Someone had to be a big girl's blouse. Thanks!
Haha! Very creative. I love the idea of them coming in to find a giant rat reading on their friendís bed. Iím surprised neither of them squealed. If I remember correctly, James didnít much like Lilyís toad in one of your stories. (I really hope Iím in the right story when I say that)
Anyway, this was really good and you actually made Peter likable. To me, that is truly remarkable. He is one of the few characters that I can find absolutely no way of redeeming, but this young Peter was cute. Even if he was already beginning to experiment with the Unforgivable Curses.
But I was a little confused about one thing. I donít really know how they could take him to Madame Pomfrey. Wouldnít it be obvious how Peter became a rat? Theyíre not allowed to be Animagus. They shouldnít have been doing that at their age and even if they were allowed, they should have been registered. It seems to me they would be a lot more reluctant to let that particular secret out of the bag.
Anyway, I loved the end of this. I canít imagine how much fun those four will have with an oversized rat. I already feel bad for Severus. A very cute little tale.
Author's Response: I figured if Hermione could go as half-cat they could probably also smuggle in Peter in large rat form and still have that medical confidentiality. After all, she definitely wasn't supposed to be making Polyjuice Potion either! Thanks for reviewing, and I'm glad you enjoyed it. You're quite right about James and the toad, by the way, but he's seen Peter rattified before. Fur is easier to cope with, for James. *Points readers to Curse of the Toad*
Wow. I like Peter - he's a bit resentful and very tricky, but not bad. And he doesn't have any misgivings about the Imperius Curse except the punishment. Scary... but easy to see where he runs into trouble. And a very amusing Marauder adventure at the same time :)
Author's Response: Ah, very alert reading. He's a little TOO bold and brave about that little curse, isn't he? Peter is fun. Thanks for reviewing!
Wonderful story! Highly amusing! I do like the way you write Peter. You don't make him this stupid little kid with no brains and even less balls. You show us the Peter whom the Marauders might in fact have had a lot of fun with rather than at the expense of. And your Peter is both brave and smart. Good job! :)
Author's Response: Hi!!!!!!!!!!! It's been a while. Peter had to have something going for him, didn't he? (Aside from the Little Ratty Paws?) Thanks!
Seems he might have been a little better at magic than people generally gave him credit for....
Author's Response: Well, you know. Twelve Muggles in one explosion and all. And you just KNOW James and Sirius never thought anyone was as good at anything as they were. Thanks!
hahaha, nice story!
Author's Response: Thanks!
Very funny tale. Ican see the Marauders pulling a trick like this.
Author's Response: Thanks!
Another lovely tale, VV! Just the perfect mix of humor with a dash of foreshadow.
Author's Response: Thanks! Dark humor is such fun.
I really enjoyed the story. It's nice to see Peter presented as something other than an incompetant lackey.
It would be interesting to see what sort of reaction an oversized rat would get from unsuspecting Slytherins!
Author's Response: Thanks! I agree; that could be a mighty interesting moment coming on.
That was perfect! You caught everybody's characters just right, and I must say, the whole story was a brilliant idea. I kind of like it that Peter got to prank everyone else. Makes him seem less like an evil git, you know. Lovely!
Author's Response: Thanks! I genuinely enjoy writing a bit of Peter now and again just for the puzzle of it. Every bit as good as Sudoku.
