Ahhh, my gosh, why do I somehow never manage to keep up with stories? I always miss them and regret it so much later... I've missed this story while the queue was closed and with the server migration and all that jazz.
This always just astounds me with just how George-like you make him. He isn't someone's (well, in this case yours) version of George, he isn't Fred-and-George, he's just George. I can imagine him with Fred, imagine what they would get up to, but he is so capable of standing on his own and you've made him beyond his own character, he's practically his own person. And Angie... she's just wonderful. She's so strong and so family-oriented and she's just so right for him that if I ever met someone who didn't ship George/Angelina, I'd advise them to read this before making up their mind.
I love Angie's family, as well. They're kinda like the Weasleys, with a lot of them and sort of noisy and boisterous (but with the twins being little boys, that's kinda only to be expected), but they're a lot less magical and just... well, different. Less chaotic, as well. The twins are my absolute favourites, though - Andre and Elliot are just the cutest! They remind me of Fred and George, but not... gah, they're adorable! :)
Percy! I really like how you're including Percy in this and showing his relationship with his family and with George in particular changing and growing. There was always so much tension between Percy and the twins and it's so nice to see them getting along (after all, a few pranks here and there won't really hurt? :P). He's pretty much perfect, as well, with the 'puffing out his chest with pride' and all that... I can just see him getting all excited over having to do a bit of free legal work, lol.
And, absolutely, contractual law isn't exactly the most interesting bit of law, having studied it. It's definitely not the worst, either. I liked the inclusion of the scene with them coming out of Shunpike, Shunpike and Associates (classic law firm name, lol, and the idea of Stan Shunpike secretly being a lawyer made me giggle for about twenty minutes), and all the information about Mr Zonko. He seems like what George will be in about fifty years time, lol. I hope he turns up again - I like him :)
I hope we see more Alicia and Lora and Michael the Muggle again - there's so many other characters in this and I'm not sure if it's my memory of this or whatever, but they don't seem to have been around for a while (like I say, though, that could just be me). And the twins... lots of Andre and Elliot... so cute!
It's strange, whenever I read this it's almost like reading the series again, you know? Kinda like an extension of that, telling us bits we didn't know before which we didn't see in the books and then telling us what happened afterwards. It's so clever and so lovely and so well-written... I really, really do love this :)
Thank you very much for writing this and for the swap!
