I really enjoyed reading this.  Your emotion and drama put into this, not to mention Arthur's excitement over the Muggle items he collected was perfect.  Well done!

Author's Response: Thanks.  I really enjoyed writing this story, mostly because I wanted to explore the parental feelings a situation like this engenders. My own son has had a few mishaps which were easy to draw on emotionally and transfer to the story.  The research into Arthur's Muggle object obsession was fun to do. I appreciate your kind words.

You have a very good sense of these characters, despite Mrs. Weasley falling out of character a few times.  I enjoyed reading this.  You did a good job  :)

Author's Response:

Thank you for your review.  I'm glad you think I have a good sense of character; I think it comes from being a parent myself and finding it easy to fall into both Arthur and Molly's shoes.  Even though she seems to be ooc, I was thinking of how Molly reacted to the Boggart in OotP and wrote that passage accordingly.  I appreciate you taking the time to respond to my story.

good job, i enjoyed it. kind of strange, Mrs. Weasley, a little bit ooc, but not too much. good writing, in any case. :D


Author's Response:

I'm glad you enjoyed my story.  I like writing the missing moments from the adults' points of view since we don't get that much in canon.  I think that I wrote Molly Weasley the way I did because of how she reacted to the Boggart in OotP.  Thank you for the kind review.

Really ace job on this. I enjoyed it immensely, and the unique subject matter took me by surprise (there aren't nearly enough HBP missing moments, and you did this one masterfully). Arthur's characterization was spot on, although Molly fell in and out of character a few times ("Oh, Arthur, I donít want to lose my baby boy without at least saying good-bye.Ē I rather think she wouldn't want to lose her baby boy in any event, yeah?). Still, aside from that and a few missing commas, this was fantastic. You wrote the emotions well, and again I must say I was really impressed with how canon Arthur's thought processes seemed to be, and the life debt thing was interesting. Marvelous work, and do take care!

Author's Response:

Thanks for your in-depth review.  I appreciate your observations about Molly.  When I wrote her distressed comments to Arthur I was mainly thinking of what the boggart did to her in OotP.  If she has such a fear of losing her husband and sons in the war, it seemed to me that she could be just as fearful of--and more likely to express her feelings--losing Ron to an accident or accidental poisoning.

I thought long and hard about the life debt before putting my opinions into words.  I was thinking about what Severus Snape did for Harry in PS/SS. I interpreted what Prof. Dumbledore told Harry about Prof. Snape’s counter-spells during the first Quidditch match to mean that Prof. Snape believed that by keeping Harry on his broom he had cancelled his life debt to James Potter. Therefore, I had Prof. Dumbledore explain my philosophy that way to Arthur. 

I'm very glad you liked my story.
