Review #1, by newgenerationlover In the Hogsmede branch

14th July 2014:
hehehehe, goodness me, I love this story! You have captured the relationship that I believe George and Teddy would have and you pulled it off perfectly. It was so funnily awkward, I absolutely loved it. Harry should really stay away from giving 'the talk' shouldn't he? :P

Author's Response: Aww thank you so much! I love George, and I think he and Teddy would definitely be partners in crime! Hehe...judging by how awkward he is with relationships, I think Harry would make anything regarding the Talk pretty uncomfortable. Accidentally of course!! Thanks so much for taking the time to review!!!

Ahahaha!!! This is so great!

I love the bromance that Teddy and George seem to have developed in the interval between the Talk and Teddy's birthday. And the Boy-Who-Lived lingerie is just PRICELESS. Gosh. :)

George is such a scoundrel. Pawning the awful twins off on Angelina because he's "behind in his schedule." As if! I do think that he understands his mother's difficult life a little better now, and maybe he understands how difficult he and Fred were to deal with in their childhood. :D

Teddy has become a suave little twerp, hasn't he?! And awkward!Harry is awkward! Hahaha, I laughed so much at the last line. This story is just silly and wonderful all around. :)

Author's Response: Hehe... I'm glad you liked it! Ted and George (in my mind at least) would have very similar personalities, so I think it'd be only natural for their friendship to grow. Plus like... Teddy's older and less awkward. So that'd probably help their relationship a little! I have the feeling that Teddy's suaveness would have been influenced by George as well. It seems like something he'd be good at...and something that poor awkward Harry wouldn't excel in! Thank you so much for the amazing review!

Review #3, by magnolia_magic In the Hogsmede branch

12th July 2014:
Hi! So I was scrolling through the Recently Addeds and your summary caught my eye, so I decided to come check it out. I am so happy I did! I loved this oneshot, and now I super hope you have other stories for me to check out as soon as I can :)

You dialogue was spot on from beginning to end. George's lines completely rang true to his character, and it all sounded so natural. I couldn't keep the grin off my face. And you packed so many funny details in that kept me engaged the whole time. The "Boy-Who-Lived" lingerie? Of COURSE George Weasley would come up with something like that! I LOLed at "You'll be his Chosen One tonight."

It's hard for me to imagine a thirteen year old boy actually asking to have "the talk." But I could see it being more plausible with a cool uncle than with a father figure (like Harry...I could totally see him being just as awkward about it as you described :P). I mean, it's a good thing Teddy is so proactive about getting the facts, and it sounds like he definitely came to the right place.

I think it can be kind of hard to pull off George's character in a true-to-the-books way. It's easy to make him too zany and over the top, almost more like a cartoon character than a real person. You avoided that trap. You kept his sense of humor but gave him other traits that make him well-rounded, such as the typical Weasley devotion to family. And I definitely do think he would end up being "that uncle."

Great job! I really, really enjoyed this :)

House Cup 2014 Review

Author's Response: Hiya! I'm so glad that you checked this story out! I agree with you that George's characterization is often a little over the top. I didn't realize how hard he would be to write, to be honest. I'm glad you thought he seemed true to the books!!
In reality, I think a 13 year old wouldn't go to an adult and start asking for the talk. But I picture Teddy as very curious. Plus he's at a boarding school...maybe he stumbled upon something that raised some questions? And who better to answer those questions than George! As for the lingerie... can you picture Harry's face when he finds out?? I want a fic like that :D Thank you so much for leaving a review and I'm so glad you enjoyed the story!!!
