Review:Maybe says:
This is Ron. It is most definitely Ron Weasley. This is his character, you nailed it completely and utterly. I love the use of the colour throughout. The first sentence, my mind immediately went to Slytherin and, for some reason, I completely forgot about Harry's eyes and the Killing Curse. I think that line was my favourite: "You look at the Killing Curse and tell me good things are green." It sounds like someone who has been through a war, there's this bitterness about him - which I think Ron always had - and yet I can't dislike him for it (and not just because I could never hate the Ron JKR created.) Love the flow and the imagery, and just the whole thing. It was very elegantly written :)

Author's Response: Oh, I'm so happy that you think this is actually Ron -- honestly, that's like the best compliment ever. :) I love writing Ron, and I really did want to bring out his sort of bitter side here, and not just show him as the comic relief, like a lot of people seem to do. He is sore about always being in somebody's shadow, and I went to this really great panel once (my geek side's about to come out, brace yourself) on writing techniques JKR used in her books. And it talked a bit about that -- how Ron had to come full circle by destroying the locket Horcrux before he could get over his insecurities. It really was very interesting! :D

I love that line you pointed out too, if I can love something I myself have written. ^_^ I'm so pleased you enjoyed the imagery, too, and I was actually quite surprised how well using the color green worked throughout this.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and tell me your opinion on this story -- I'm so, so glad you did! ♥ I really appreciate it!
