Chapter: The Mind of Arthur Weasley

I LOVED this story. Your characterisation was spot on, for everyone. I can't beleive this is your first first person POV fic! It was true to the core with the whole, "parents are all knowing" thing. I loved all Arthurs little thoughts and insights on things and I just really enjoyed reading it and would deffinatly reccomend it. Supper thimbs up, fiv out of five!

Author's Response: This started off as a third person POV story from Ginnyís perspective, about the kids trying to persuade the Weasleys to let them go on holiday. It didnít work. I moved it to Arthurís POV, again third person. It still didnít work. So I sat in Arthurís seat and rewrote it again in the first person. -N-

Wow!

That was a very good character study of one of my favourite fictional fathers of all time. All the others were kept in character, and you even managed to dwell upon their quirks in a compact one-shot.

There were a few punctuation errors (missing commas, and then missing semi-colons), but apart from that, I loved this one-shot. It's going straight to my favourites. :D

Author's Response: Punctuation is my major weakness (as the many rejections this story had will testify). It would be a lot worse if it werenít for my wonderful betaís. -N-

I so admire your amazing characterization, and this story is no different. It was a joy to read, and it has given me a completely different way to view Arthur, while still being completely and 100% in character. I love the little things he thinks about the children that he'll never tell them, his relationship with Molly, the things he notices about the couples that speak volumes about their relationships...it was simply wonderful to read.

Author's Response: Thank you. Iíll admit that Arthur was something of a revelation to me, too. As I wrote I discovered a lot about him. I realised that he is a brave member of the Order of the Phoenix. Given Mollyís often explosive character, it seemed to me that he must be the calm in the centre of a storm of Weaseys. But to keep some sort of order he must know what is going on. -N-

I like this, sounds just like Arthur.
You've summed up his character very well.

Author's Response: Thanks for the review. Arthur doesn't say much, but he thinks a lot. -N-
