Hey there! I remember reading the first chapter of this story a while ago and finding it interesting, and I figured I'd come back and check out what else has happened while I've been away :)

I'm sure I mentioned this before, but I really love your characterization of Molly. I think she's really interesting even without her little 'hidden' side, with her reserved nature and quiet confidence that masks a world of insecurity underneath. I like how you've managed to include her family members without typecasting them too much, even prankster James. I also like how close she is to Louis, almost like they were actually brother and sister. It'll be interesting to see the whole family together at Victoire's little "family meeting".

I also really love how you carefully describe everything Molly does and sees as she goes about her business. It's certainly a lot of text to get through, but it also paints a more thorough picture for me, and I think it's interesting to see what is changed and unchanged at Hogwarts in the next generation. It also makes it easier for me to follow the action.

I thought the ending here was really cute, and I'm interested to see what will happen between shy, complex Molly and this mysterious seventh-year. Also, I'd like to add that the lack of technical errors here really helps the flow, and it's easy for me to get lost in the story as I'm following Molly around.

Very nicely done! I'll be back for more later.

Author's Response: Hey there - I remember you! :D Glad to see you back!

Thank you so much! I didn't actually plan much of Molly before writing her - this was originally done for NaNo - so she sort of wrote herself. She is quietly confident and very reserved, but... I dunno, she's still pretty normal, I guess. I really wanted her to be fairly average in terms of home life and personal problems and things. There'd be too much drama, otherwise :D I love writing the Weasleys, so I'm so glad you like them. Louis is amazing. Writing him is so much fun - he just practically bounces onto the page waving Chocolate Frogs, lol.

Thanks! I know I put a lot of description in - particularly in this - but Molly is a fairly observant person, so it kinda makes sense from that angle, and we never really saw places like the Ravenclaw Common Room in the books, except for once right at the end when we were too busy focusing on finding Horcruxes and things. I'm glad you like it though, and don't think it's too much :)

Haha, you'll have to wait a bit for that I'm afraid! But the seventh year will definitely come back. Definitely. He has a name and everything ;) The lack of technical errors is pretty much all down to my beta, who is absolutely amazing. There were commas all over the place before she exterminated them all :D

Thank you so much for this review - it was a really wonderful surprise!
