Very Very good. I gaped in horror when I realised what Ron had done though, funny how he didn't use the 'i was imperioused' excuse, it's about the only thing he didn't use. I'm wondering if in this reality Percy might end up with Hermione? They seem quite suited and he's much less of a prat. It's weird, I've been rereading GoF and Ron talking of scarlet women came to mind. Perhaps he was in denial. I'm going to choose to believe that following these events, Harry will recover because of Percy and Hermione's collective brain power discovering a miracle cure, because reality scares me and I need the happily ever afters.
Your story grabbed my interest right from the start. I became caught up in the mystery over Percy's desperation to talk with Harry.
I was eager to find out who the "her" Percey referred to at the beginning and what Ron had been up to.
Your story was well written and I liked how you worked a variety of charcaters into it. You portrayed all the Weasley men quite aptly.
I was surprised, when I learned of Ron's problem. Not what I thought he had been doing.
The one thing I was wondering was how Snape happened to be sitting on the bride's side?
Keep up the good work, Spottedcat!
Author's Response: Well, I'm glad you liked it! And I'm glad you caught the fact that I was hiding the bride's identity until partway through the story. Yes, Snape. But then, it's hard to imagine him feeling enough attachment to Ron to sit on Ron's side! And yes, it's a shameless "pick on Ron" kind of story!
This was very sweet! I love stories that feature Percy in a more thoughtful light.
Author's Response: Thanks! I did this story as a challenge, and it was a bit of a challenge at first, because I'd never even considered writing a "good Percy" kind of story. But once I had the plot, I really liked this story. I enjoyed writing it. And I'm glad you liked reading it.
True, it does leave me wondering what happens next... so that means you should write a sequel!
Author's Response: Hmmm... I shall consider this...
I really like this story. I have a soft spot for Percy, so it’s nice to see him portrayed in a positive light. It’s quite believable and well-written too. I also really like what you did with Harry – it shows the effect that the war had on their lives, and it’s so heartbreaking that he could see his friend in trouble but be unable to do anything about it. Oh, that reminds me: I appreciate the anti-RHr too. :D
I like to imagine that after the end of the fic, Percy and Hermione get together (they’ll be in healer training together after all!) and Percy reconciles with his family…
Author's Response: Thanks! This story does have potential for stories to come after it. Here we see Percy at what is probably the most major change in his life. This leaves us wondering--now that he's made such a huge change, what comes next?
i love the noble percy stories. it gives me a whole new view.
Author's Response: This is my first try at thinking of Percy as noble. I thought it would be very difficult, but once I began thinking from Percy's point of view, I realized he could really have a very good heart. Writing the story gave me a new view, too.
this is sweet. I like it. it's different.
Author's Response: Well, thank you! It's always good to know the people who read it like it.
This was an excellent little tale. I enjoyed Percy's interaction with Snape best of all.
Keep up the good writing. Meow!
Author's Response: I liked writing Snape into this story, so I'm glad you enjoyed reading him there. Thanks! And meow to you too!
