| Gamma Orionis chapter 10 . 2/26
I loved all the talk between Fred and George! If I were to list every line of their dialogue that I particularly loved, it would be pretty much everything they said. Auntie Muriel was fantastically awful, absolutely the kind of relative that no child ever wants to have to spend the day with. I absolutely sympathize with the twins' desire to prevent her from visiting ;)
[For over an hour, she had given a very detailed report about the toe infection Great-Uncle Billius had gotten after neglecting an ingrown toenail] - oh god *vomits*
| percychased chapter 10 . 2/26
You got into the minds of eight-year-olds (especially Fred and George) really well here!
I love kid-fics and this is no exception. The 'favouritism' is nicely done here - especially with how she ignores them and fawns over how well Bill's doing. I could imagine how they would be a little tired of her insulting their family and them. The quirky, cute little comments they say [that stench-y perfume and the horror stories][No, it's because she gets fatter ever year] are in-character and a few of them made me laugh out loud. Kids are great.
Adorable. Good job!

Whenever I read stuff with Fred I get nostalgic and it hurts. This was funny, sweet and in character! Nice job.
| Lillielle chapter 10 . 2/24
...Wow, when Muriel said that line about having so many children, they can't afford them, I wanted to reach into the story and smack her with a chair. What an insufferable old woman. Not surprised Fred and George have to be threatened into getting ready to come down and see her. :p I think this is very well done from the twins' perspective, and I like the fact that it doesn't skip ahead or anything, it just shows them planning what they're *going* to do. I can't help but hope it works. XD
| enomix chapter 10 . 2/24
This was great - shows the beginnings of Fred and George's prank careers. Your characterisation was great and the dynamics within the Weasley family were really natural. I like the idea of Muriel being a bit stuck-up and the Weasleys being slightly outcast within their family; it makes them all the more special. The SPaG was all fine, just in the last dialogue I you forgot the "t" in "that" ("I'd say that hat's the best use for it" - although probably Muriel had really horrid hats too, to be honest). Nice snapshot into the early twin days!
| Luck O' The Irish Seamione chapter 10 . 2/23
I thought this was really cute! You wrote Fred and George really well and I really enjoyed reading about them at this age. The glow and everything was nice as well and I didn't notice and errors. I loved how you made them react to Aunt Muriel and I think it totally would fit into canon and all seems like one of those missing moments. Great job!
| Fire The Canon chapter 10 . 2/23
Hehehe, I loved this. It's such a Fred and George thing to do, to plot to get rid of her. I loved how in this, Fred and George were kind of feeling the outcasts in the family, shadowed by older brothers. We see Ron as that, but it makes sense that they might too.
I think you characterised everyone so well, too. Molly being the stubborn mother, and then Muriel being picky. I loved it.
Great job :)
| autumn midnights chapter 10 . 2/22
I love the twins here. They're the same sassy pranksters that they are in canon, only younger. You've characterized them so well here, and I love them at the end, plotting to make their Aunt Muriel stop coming over by using a Dungbomb. That's definitely like them. I love George's comment, as well - "No, it's because she gets fatter every year." That was brilliant - I was literally laughing at that.
Two small SPaG things I noticed - 'Choco Frogs' should be 'Chocolate Frogs', and 'Billius' should only have one 'l'.
I love the way you write Muriel here - she seems positively awful. I really like how you expanded on what little we know of her from canon. It's completely understandable that the twins hate her, seeing how she acts. I really like Arthur threatening to tell Molly about the twins' stubbornness, too - Molly's definitely the more intimidating one, out of the two of them.

Hahahaha, I loved this! It was so, so cute and funny. I loved the twins, they were so in-character. Their dialogues and actions were just so fitting of their characters. :P :'D I also liked how you portrayed Aunt Muriel. From what we know, you captured her perfectly. [No, it's because she gets fatter every year.] Bahaha, yep, that was probably my favorite line. I loved the end, how you set it up to where we know they're going to prank her, but didn't actually *show* the prank. This was lovely, darling! :D
| musefan929 chapter 10 . 2/22
Alright! It's so fun to write the twins' dialogue, isn't it? You really captured their wit in this piece and I loved it so much! It felt very dimensional, I enjoyed the bit about Aunt Muriel going on and on about a toe infection that Uncle Bilius has. This was a great story told at a pretty funny time for the boys.
Grammar and spelling seemed good as far as I could see. Lovely little story.
| DobbyRocksSocks chapter 10 . 2/21
I've never read a pre Hogwarts Weasley family fic before. I enjoyed this one, especially the end. From what we see in the books, I think you have Muriel really well in character.
Flow was a little off here and there, a few sentences seemed a bit off, but I saw no actual mistakes.
Another good story though, and you have a lot of talent :)
| Lucy Kent chapter 10 . 2/21
Haha, this was so much fun to read! I could easily see the two of them plotting the... departure of their dear aunt Muriel. I am sure it gave me an evil glint as well! Their age at the time is very apparent as well! I would like to imagine that this was the moment that they started to form their opinion of Ron.
| Michy Drarry Shipper chapter 10 . 2/19
I've never actually read a story about pre-Hogwarts Fred and George, so this was really interesting. I laughed at Muriel's comments about having more children than they could afford, because that's such a bitchy, shit stirring thing to say. I liked your characterization of everyone, it seemed all very IC. The twins were a little cheeky, but not the full blown pranksters they become, which was believable. Overall, I really like your style. It's nicely paced, nothing seems rushed, and if feels very close to canon.
| Lara1221 chapter 10 . 2/19
I can't stop laughing! That was awesome :D I loved the idea of this- you got Fred and George so well- characterization is clearly an area where you excell. I absolutely love their banter and dialogue, and the interaction between them and aunt Muriel. Fantastic job- I really, really enjoyed this. There were a few typos, but nothing you can't catch with a second read.
| Safari chapter 10 . 2/10
hahaha, this was funny. Gred and Forge's responses and reactions are rather canon and I like how this could easily fit into the HP timeline. Aunt Muriel was *perfect* and it's great to see that she does actually favour one Weasley over another. Her passive-aggressiveness was the best part of this one-shot c: I like how you integrated in and hinted at the Weasley twins' prank that eventually cut them out of her will.
