Hi! Just wanted to say that I really like this story so far based off the two chapters. I really like Alice's character and her little quirks, although some of her tendencies read as (social) anxiety. If that is the case, I'm really glad to see it represented in a story/fanfiction. I also love Auror department stories, so this is right up my alley. I'll be looking out for the next update!

Author's Response: Hi! I'm pleased to hear that you're enjoying the story so far :)

And yes, I'm glad you caught on to the fact that Alice does suffer from anxiety, probably social anxiety in particular. I was debating whether I should make a statement about it but then decided against it as I wanted readers to kind of guess at it themselves, since anxiety is often something quite subtle, in that people don't tend to notice it in someone unless it's very bad. (Although the story being called "Strained" and the summary quote about anxiety do kind of hint at Alice having some form of anxiety haha.)

I suffer from some social anxiety myself so I thought it would be really nice to portray it realistically in fanfiction, as I haven't seen it done that often before. I guess this story is a bit like me giving expression to my anxiety.

Anyways, thank you so much for reading! An update will be on its way relatively soon; school has just been rather hectic.
