Chapter: The Mind of Arthur Weasley

Still my all time favorite story in this site..:)

But you might need to sort out the Order of Merlins the Weasleys got in your stories (I have noted slight discrepancies). In your A&S all of them received 2nd class OM, for me that was overkill.

Author's Response:
Thank you.

I'll be taking another look at A&S soon. I'll correct that error. Thanks.

Chapter: The Mind of Arthur Weasley

Sometimes it seems that fanfics and any "light" literature is almost exclusively written by women about men that say stuff like " I have loved you for 8 years, but I always felt intimidated by your beauty and courage, could you ever consider going out on a date with me". It's refreshing to read stories where men have feelings and they acknowledge it, but they still sound real. Though it could just be that I've lived in Finland for almost all my life. After persistent questioning my husband told me that he proposed because "I felt like proposing".
I think I've written this before, but I love these male characters that are sweet and emotional and mature, but still don't talk for two hours with their girlfriend about what their first kiss felt like. It' very refreshing and in my experience very rare. I also consider it a wonderful talent.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
I will admit that there are a great many fanfics where certain characters seem to be a lot more romantic than they were in the books. For me, the love and affection is in the little things, not any grand declarations. Perhaps it's a British thing, but I'd advise my daughters to be very wary of a bloke who was prepared to make a public declaration of love. I certainly wouldn't trust him. :-D
I hope that Arthur's love (and that of those two inept blokes, Ron and Harry) is obvious in thisstory.

Just re-read this AGAIN, and realized that I haven't left a review yet. This is my favorite one-shot you have done. The characterization of Arthur is different to those I have seen in most other fan-fic where they portray Arthur as a slightly daft old duffer. I certainly wouldn't want to play poker against YOUR Arthur!

M.M.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review.
Arthur: husband of Molly; father of the twins; member of the Order of the Phoenix, trusted by Dunbledore. Any one of those shows that he's more than a daft old duffer, in my opinion.

So cute! I love his affection towards the end.
Your one-shot puts words to a speculation I had of Arthur's behavior a while back.

I reread this story and there was a slight confusion. In this story you say that all weasley but one gets order of merlin third class, but in A&S they get second class. Which one do they get?
For the positive, I still like all of you're stories, even after rereading it a lot of time. ^^

Author's Response: Thanks for the review, and thanks for letting me know. I will change one or the other as soon as possible, once I’ve checked which one is correct. -N-

The Mind of Arthur Weasley is brilliant. You have brought out the character SO well. Each nuance is captured, not one tiny movement missed, the descriptions are brilliant. I always thought Arthur Weasley was a little lost, for lack of a better word. But now from your perspective, it is perfectly explained. I was laughing at how the four reacted to everything said, and how nicely Arthur Weasley picked them up. I read this after I read Spontaneity, so it's a continuation for me. Brilliant, I'd say (more than once!)

Author's Response: Thank you
As I've said in other replies. The idea for this story, Arthur sitting and watching, the quartet interacting, came easy. The writing went very badly, until I switched to first person, at which poit it was written almost instantly. The Hermione was always physical with the boys, kicking them under the table etc. I knew what had happenned in Spontaneity when I wrote this, but at the time I hadn't figured out how to write it.

I re-read this all the time. I simply love it. It fits the Arthur we know from the books so perfectly, and it gives us a look into each of the relationships between all four young adults, without Harry, Ginny, Ron, or Hermione directly telling the story. So well done. Love it!

Author's Response: Thank you. This (as I've said in other review replies) was the first story I told from a first person perspective. Arthur seemed to be the ideal candidate as a silent, but frighteningly good observer. -N-

Fantastical job! You captured Mr. Weasley perfectly. Tee-hee. Didn't we always expect something like this...? And I know what you mean about the have-to-get-it-out syndrome. That happened to me yesterday. I spent all day typing I'm so slow... Anyhoo, spledid job and keep writing!

Beautifully and cleverly written. A real insight to the often overlooked Arthur. I have really enjoyed this and a fab 'first attempt' at a first person pov. I was smiling all the way through!

Author's Response: Thank you. This is my only Arthur-centred story, although Spontaneity (written much later but taking place over the days before) shows you how right he was. -N-

I love this story! I really think you do a fantastic job of getting in Arthur's head. I loved all the building tension and body language that Arthur notices from the young couples. And also, his memories about his twentieth birthday were great too. It's funny, I've never really thought about his "vacant look" as actually concealing his attention to details, but looking back on the HP books, I can see how that makes perfect sense! It makes me wonder if my dad is the same way becuase he's really good at the "vacant look" expression too! Great story! Thanks so much for the insight into Arthur's mind! :)

Author's Response: Thanks.
As Ive said. Arthur managed to capture the heart of the fiery Molly and hes a member of the Order, he cant be completely daft. My dad certainly always knew more than I thought. Sometimes, however, the vacant look is simply that. :-D

I really liked this story. It had really good discriptions on how Harry and Ginny communicate and same with Ron and Hermione. It wasn't to long and thats what I like about it. If stories are to long they just get boring. This was the perfect length. This was the second story I've read and it encourages me to keep reading stories. Overall I thought it was great :)

Author's Response: Hello, and thanks for the review. Im happy that you liked this little tale and that you enjoyed my descriptions. My stories are (I hope) as long as they need to be. Stories should be like a party dressshort enough to keep people interested, but long enough to cover the important bits. ;-) Thanks again. :-D -N-

this is by far one of my favorite stories.. just as you say arthur may be seen but not noticed.. but i have always loved his character.. his love of muggles is so endearing and the relationships between him and molly and to each of his children makes me wish he was my dad lol... whch is why i could not wholeheartly forgive Percy whn he didnt even go see him at the st. mungos... but this story just makes me see how arthur really does sees things most others dont.. and i just love how u explain the relationship between ron & hermione.. cuz its spot on lol.. and the love between harry & ginny too... and also i agree that ron does seem to put himself down so much.. i wish he didnt.. if only he can realize how much both harry & hermione depend on him.... i hope you could do another short story like this.. i would LOVE to read it.. again thnks for posting this.. alwys makes me laugh.. no matter how times i read it...

Author's Response: Thanks for the review. Arthur is a great bloke and a decent man. I had a lot of fun writing him in this story, but unless an idea suddenly hits me, Im unlikely to write any more stories from his perspective. If I ever finish that series of H/G wedding stories there may be an Arthur chapter (possibly). I used Arthurs thoughts to analyse my ideas about the kids and their relationships. -N-

I think this is your best work , even though it is not my favorite ( I prefer chaptered stories ) But there is something about this story that just feels so ... right . The way you have depicted Ron , Harry , Hermione , and Ginny through Arthur's eyes is so well done . To the point where I would believe that you are Jo Rowling sitting in a cafe writing these stories under a pseudonym . You have a great talent writing and I can see it becoming a professional career choice for yourself , and I would deffinitly find time to read your stories if you were ever to publish .

Thank you for keeping me entertained with all of the beautiful stories you write , and I cannot wait for more A&S !

Author's Response: Thanks for the review, and the kind words.
Arthur was my first attempt at first person pov, and it is one of those (unfortunately few) stories which arrived in my head complete in itself. The only struggle I had was realising that it worked best in first person.
I have several more Potterverse stories plotted and planned. But Im working on some original stuff, too.
More A&S very soon, I hope.
