This story has been nominated for the 2012 Quick Silver Quills: Best Dark/ Angst Fic
This story is beautiful and - if this makes sense - lazily captivating. It just holds onto your heart without you even realising, until you reach moments such as the green eyes reference (stunning, by the way) and it gives you a little squeeze.
From the very first paragraph I dove right into your writing style which matched Ron's state magically. I think we all wonder what went through Ron's head during this part of their adventure, and this describes it so fully that I believe every world, and yet it's so simply written, so clever and subtle.
I loved the way you described Ron looking at Hermione and how he sees her, it just works for Ron. So well.
Love it so much, one of my favourites!
Summary: Ms A Cadwallader wishes to improve herself and apply for a better job. Unfortunately, despite her impeccable qualifications, she is thwarted by a certain Junior Under Secretary for the Minister of Magic, who has let it be known that basic spelling errors can never be over looked.
This story, written in the style of a series of letters, first appeared in The Battle of the Genres over at the SBBC forum.
I am not JK Rowling. She would probably have been more amusing.
This story is for Minna because it was her birthday and she likes this pairing.
Thank you Natalie for liking the drabble and encouraging me to expand.

This is brilliant! It is so cute and bubbly, and the set out makes it all the more fun. This is one of the first times I've ever warmed to Percy!
Love it love it love it! I'm glad Percy found a snappy but playful girl :)
Author's Response: Thank you! I had a lot of fun writing this one and am pleased (if somewhat bemused) at the great reception it's received (i before e, :D). Audrey in my other stories isn't nearly as playful, sadly.
Thanks again ~Carole~

The line 'But she loves the taste of hesitation -- so different than the blind desire and simplicity of the opposite sex.' was just so wonderfully Bellatrix. This piece is an interesting way of looking at the character, I really enjoyed it.
Author's Response: I'm glad you liked that line - I am hoping to explore more of Bellatrix's relationships in future stories. Thank you so much for leaving this review!
