Hey! Thanks so much for requesting a review as I really, really, really enjoyed this first chapter-it was such a fun read and now I'm super intrigued to find out what happens next.
You gotta love the Weasley family, right? I always love stories when the whole Weasley family comes together and your portrayal of this slightly dysfunctional family was brilliant. I loved the way you wrote the party and how you introduced each character-your characterizations of the Weasley's that appeared in this chapter were all spot on. I think my personal favourites were George, Audrey and of course, Roxanne.
I read quite a lot of nex generation, but I'm not sure I've ever read one where the main character is Roxanne, and I think you've done a great job with her character. I love the fact that she's a bit of a daddy's girl-her relationship with George is just so sweet and adorable and perfect, and I was smiling the whole time I read their interactions.
You described the relationship between Angelina and George really, really well. I particularly liked the idea of Angelina not really caring too much about what her husband got up to as long as he and Lee didn't kill each other. I also really liked your portrayal of Audrey. Usually in fanfiction she's seen as stuffy and uptight so it was awesome to see that you put your own unique spin on her.
I really liked the little details you added into this chapter-like the fact that George still looked back on the wizarding war and thought of Fred (sob) and also how you mentioned some of the other characters, such as Oliver and Katie, and it turned out they were married with kids! That was a nice touch, I thought.
Overall, I thought this was a very good first chpter-and that was a very nice cliffie at the end, too. I'm eager to find out more about this Benjamin Malfoy.
Author's Response: Hello!
Hey, there, thanks for stopping by. :) I'm so glad that you enjoyed this, I was thinking of going through and doing some little editing here and there.
Oh, thank you so much for liking the Weasley clan. I actually have alot of fun writing them all, though it can be a bit hard to keep track of all of them. My favorite characters were all in the same chapter and it was really great to show all of them for a little while.
Its a shame that Roxanne never gets featured all the time in Next Gen. I'm not sure why but she's really interesting to write for, and if you like George/Angelina, it just makes it easier.
But anyway, Roxanne of course is a daddy's girl and I always love writing her and George's interactions, they sort of make me all fuzzy.
George and Angelina have a really good relationship! I've written them before so I have a good idea of their relationship already and Angelina is pretty laid back. I mean, she doesn't really care what George will do so long as he's alive in the end. Hahahaha.
Audrey has her own fanfic if you want to check that out! I never wanted her to be so stiff and uptight just because Percy is portrayed that way. I think he'd actually appreciate a woman completely different from him, and plus, its more fun. :D
Oh, I had to have George still upset about the battle and dear Freddie. Its something that I really wanted to put in this story and I'm glad you liked it! And plus, I like detail. Oliver and Katie and everyone are just great to put in this story. :)
Hahah, you might not like Benjamin Malfoy too much but you'd just have to wait and see. ;)
Much love and thanks so much,
