Ooh, what a good first chapter! Very intriguing :) I love it when authors explore more of the little known Order members-- there's much more room there for movement, and you can create your own interesting story for each. Your Caradoc seems very well characterised. He isn't the atypical Order member, which makes him ten times more interesting. Your choice to put him in Slytherin is similar to your choice to make the Black parents nice. You seem to go against the normal in your fics, which is really good. Not every order member was a Gryffindor, obviously, yet no-one ever talks about Slytherin Order members.

I'm interested by the bit at the beginning-- I can't wait to read on and see what it's about. And placing him in trade-- it's different to what most people put the Order in, but obviously just as important to the cause.

The interaction between Caradoc and the Marauders were superb-- brilliantly written, and good at highlighting each of their characters quickly. Your James Potter was easily recognisable from what Rowling tells us of him within one line of him speaking, and I love that you had Lily being the one to make the mistake-- most would have made it be Peter.

Your spelling and grammar is good, as always. I can't wait to read more.

So sorry I forgot your clues last time! Here's Clue Number 1: My OTP is Hodgins/Angela.

Author's Response: When I created Caradoc, I knew I wanted him to be different. It seemed improbable that all Order members would be Gryffindors and his personality really didn't suit the other two houses, lol, so Slytherin it was! And yeah, I like going against normal. Normal is boring ;)
I considered making him a Healer or an Auror or a diplomat - something more obvious, but I'd already put people into those jobs, lol, and it seemed silly to have everyone in the Order being an Auror or something.
Ah, I love me some Marauders :P I'm glad you like them - I know they're not quite the typical way people paint them, especially James and Sirius. I've always pictured Peter as being quite shy, which is why he didn't speak much there - he will show up later on, though, and talk more.

Thanks for the lovely review, Secret Santa!
