    The Hidden Room

    The Hidden Room by Dilly

    Summary: Percy used to tell them stories about The Burrow. Oneshot, 1,495 Words.

    Why You Should Care: Because it’s lovely, sweet, and themeful, that’s why. Aside from brilliant characterisations of Percy (who is making the not-quite-so-easy transition back into his family) and Ron (who is still fresh from fighting a war), there’s also an acknowledgement of The Burrow itself as a character. Through Percy, Dilly weaves a rich and colourful mythology for The Burrow and the Weasleys, breathing a whole new life into the concept of home and family. Between the personification of The Burrow, the subtleties in Percy’s character, the unsensationalised dealing with Fred’s death, and the overall high standard of writing, this is a completely unique oneshot you shouldn’t miss.

    Why You Might Not Care: I just said you shouldn’t miss it. *points*

      That was really beautiful. It’s an incredibly complex piece with just so many layers and depth. It’s for gems like this that I love this site. Thanks!
