Hahahaha I love this line "if this was how he wanted to waste his time" it's so great. She's trying to be supportive but she can't help that she sees this all as a waste of time. Great job with that one. :)

Hattie's development with her mum potentially marrying a muggle is a great twist. It's really interesting to think about how the pureblood families operate and how they think about muggles. As Molly thinks, she's never been around a muggle, she's only seen them in passing and isn't sure what to think about them. And her squib cousin that was pretty much ostracized from the magic world (another one of your great details that you pull from the books), it's all really interesting to think about. Because I personally am more like Arthur is in this case. I think there's no reason to be prejudice and no bad time for tolerance but it's hard to feel differently when you have grown up being taught to think a certain way. It makes it easier to see how the Slytherins, like the Malfoy's feel the way they do (although I don't think they are right). It just makes for an interesting debate I suppose.

Anyways, now that I've spent a lot of time not making much sense I'm off to read the next chapter. Oh, and silly Molly for being upset that Arthur is "flirting" with someone. Hehe.

Author's Response: Thanks! I was going for that exactly; she's determined to support him but she still thinks it's stupid.

Hattie's really a good person, but she was raised pureblood and never even realized she might have a prejudice. Some of the things Ron says in the books makes me think pureblood kids - even the Weasleys - are raised with unconscious stereotyping of Muggles. And I think it's likely it came from their mother, love her though I do. She doesn't have Arthur's interest in them, and she does have a cousin who was a squib. I thought Hattie's subplot was a good one to bring out some new growth in Molly's character as well.

She is silly, isn't she? Arthur could only ever love her. XD Thank you for the review!
