Aww, this was so incredibly cute! :D I had a huge smile on my face and still do. Dominique as a child was really adorable and Percy being the inexperienced baby sitter who does as the little girl commands, I just went 'Aww.' Ha ha. This was really well written and very enjoyable to read. Most of the time Percy is portrayed as the boring one (I do that too), but you gave him a different personality altogether here and that was very nice to read.
Also, Dominique was a perfect kid. Her interaction with Percy and her initial unwillingness to let him babysit her because he was boring, was all well written. And in the end, when she changed her mind - that was so cute.
I'm going to favourite this one. XD

Aww I really loved this. Percy always gets passed off as no fun and always serious, and apparently all his nieces and nephews think so too. I'm glad that Dominique learned that me can be fun too. My favorite part was when Dominique said that Percy was her favorite uncle and Percy smiled. I could almost feel how much that would touch his heart. Loved it so much!

Now I'm imagining how insane it would be if all three kids were together, and with George watching them. Little kids, fireworks, magical pranks... it's a very good thing that they were split up. I would hate to see the property damage.
I love how you're written Percy as this really awkward uncle. It's hilarious to see him think of stories like the cauldron thickness. That was pretty clever of you, and it brought back many memories of my dad doing the same. And then you have Audrey mentioned :-) The best part would have to be comparing Dominque to Molly. In my experience, there is rarely a difference when a little kids ask about a relationship status vs a mother's.
I think what I like the most about this is how we rarely see Percy unwind. Little kids, especially. This gives me a more appreciative look concerning him.

ahaha, this was hilarious!
i loved your characterisation of percy, and the way he seemed to just be completely flailing at the thought of anything to do with children like play time and story time. poor thing had to look at his own ministry reports for story inspiration - i'm sure george and ron could have told him that they wouldn't work ;)
domi is lovely - definitely an accurate portrayal of a four-year old in my opinion, though her language may be a bit too advanced. the way it's so easy for percy to change her mind about things, especially her feelings about him is perfect - very like a young child!
it's probably a good thing domi was the one to find the heels - imagine percy if it had been one of his brothers! i have no doubt they'd have gone for 'crossdessing' - they don't seem like the kind to think he could ever land a girl :P
this was lovely - well done! :)

Percy is in character and still quite likeable, and it's very hard to make him be pompous and nice, so well done! This is quite funny too, keep writing!

3 I like Uncle Percy }
| still kat chapter 1 . 8/25/2012
I loved this, it was so adorable! I actually found myself leaning over in anticipation when Percy was about to tell Dominique the secret. Another really cute thing was the bit with Charlie and the dragon, you wrote it very naturally :D
I must admit that when Domique found the heels, for a minute I considered whether Percy was a cross-dresser.

Awsome! I do love me some percy and you did him beautifully. The little bot of insecurity at the end was aweosme i loved it. Dominique was absolutely adorable. I felt sort of bad for percy when Dominique was going on about how she wished she got to stay with Uncle george instead. Great story very cute!

Wonderfully sweet. I love the fact that Percy maintains a bit of his pompousness, but that we also get to see his caring side. And little Dominique is adorable!

awww...this is o sweet. *insert fangirl squeal8. This is exactly how i though Dom would feel and its nice having people appreciate percy. Nobody likes him.

This was absolutely adorable! I really loved your Dominique and Percy, they were perfect! The cauldron bottom thickness was hilarious, as was the whole story! I loved the middle child conversation, and adgjkkgdsk the bedtime story!
| RiverPhoenix chapter 1 . 5/22/2012
Aww that was cute! i love Percy's cauldron thickness fetish, and the bonding between these two is so sweet - Percy is so often the left out sibling, so it's nice to see him find common ground with the other middle child. And it's also nice to see him pull his head out of his arse and play with Dominique and tell her a decent story.

I hope you don't mind me reviewing this one. You never specified.
Over all, this was a well written piece. I really like your writing style and your word choice is really good. I'm envious. I really am. Spelling and grammar is perfect and the flow was excellent.
Typical Percy, trying to teach her about cauldron thickness. My next-gen Percy is still as pompous as ever, so I enjoyed this. I love next-gen because of all the differences. In my head canon, George was the last to get married by a good ten years :)
There were just two things I noticed that didn't seen to fit right. The first was Dominique's vocabulary. Forgive me, but I'm studying Early Childhood at university so it's kind of been drilled into me, the development of children. It just seemed she was speaking too well for a four year old.
The second was Percy using centimetres. In the books (British version, which in my case, the Australian version is the same) Jo uses feet and inches. I don't know if you have Pottermore, but on Pottermore she has a whole explanation as to why the wizarding world didn't convert when the Muggle world did.
Sorry if I'm being picky, but to people who know the books extremely well, it's very noticeable.
