Hi! magnolia_magic here from the forums! I'm so sorry it's taken me this long...RL has been a lot to handle lately. But I'll try to get these chapters reviewed as soon as I can :)

I'm completely in love with this idea: it's so unique and compelling. I've never really thought about a wizard's role in a muggle war, and it's just so interesting to be able to see that. I totally get the neighborhood's reaction to the McGonagalls. Truthfully, it kind of annoys me that they just act like nothing is happening while their neighbors are losing husbands and sons to the war. I'm pretty sure Minerva would agree with me on that :)

Speaking of Minerva, I really like her character so far. There are details that remind me of the books: her dislike for the unpredictable Scottish weather, and the fact that she hates the name "Minnie," for example. Those things make me see her as a serious person who likes order and control. I think she is a great character, and I look forward to reading more about her :)

Peter and Minerva's friendship is so sweet; I love how they open each others' worlds to new things. He seems so funny and precious, which makes it even sadder when he writes about the war in his letter.

I love the interspersed lines of the letter throughout this chapter; they add a nice contrast to the narration. Overall, I think this is very well-written, and I love Minerva's voice; it seems very soft and controlled. It's a very nice read :)

I am so looking forward to reading more of this! I'll try really hard to give you more reviews soon, so please bear with me. This chapter is just wonderful...thanks so much for requesting!

Author's Response: Hi there! Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me this lovely-lovely-lovely review! Take as long as you need, I know full well that RL can be a bit of a pain... and even when its good it sometimes detracts from HPFF time :P

Oh yeah, Minerva would be totally with you on the whole lets-just-ignore-it-because-its-not-happening-to-is - she's not so hot on injustice, no matter how or where that should come about :)

I love writing Minnie so much! So I'm really glad you're enjoying her as a character - she just sort of burst into life, and I'm really glad about that.

Awhh, thank you so much for this lovely review! And sorry it took me a couple of days to respond :) :) :)
