Title: What Should Have Been
Rated: PG-13 for adult themes
Warnings:A little more than the summary implies )
Summary: Arthur knew he shouldn't be reading Percy's diary. But then, he also knew Percy shouldn't be lying in a hospital bed, clinging to life after a suicide attempt, and in the realm of Things That Shouldn't Have Been, his seemed the far lesser offense.
Notes: While I wish I could say this fic idea sprung unprompted from my brain, I must give credit where it's due. I recently had the pleasure of reading an older fic, Invisible Son by Raewhit and a newer fic, The Secret Life of Percival Weasley by Cypher. Both mixed third-person activity with first-person journal entries, which I've discovered is a format I adore, despite not generally being a fan of the first-person tense, and both involved Percy hospitalized (Invisible Son after a suicide attempt and with Arthur reading his diary, which is the set-up here, as well).

I feel like a bit of a hack for aping the premise, but I also think I've managed to churn out a story that is my own and different enough from those. I hope you'll read all three and think so as well. And many thanks to my betas! You know who you are.
