Review:dirtydeedsdonedirtcheap says:
She watched as her little sister, Gabrielle, danced in her white dress under the floating chandeliers of the Weasley ballroom. Gabi laughed at something her dance partner, one Mr. Dean Thomas, had said to her as he passed her by.

^ I love high society talk and mention of balls and all these other things that I would have never wanted to do if I was born many moons ago. I like this part because I could see them dancing from Fleur's eyes. The way you describe Gabi is beautiful, not just her features but her characteristics, the way she moves, her fluidity.

She was already two-and-twenty and thereby an old maid by anyone's standards

^ I just find it funny to say 'old maid.' My grandmother was around the same age, just a tad bit older when she got married but apparently no one thought it would happen because they considered her an old maid.

Eleven children later I think she made up for lost time. Haha! It's interesting if we think about what it's like today. You seem fifty year old women dating men that are in their twenties or women that are almost fifty having children. Society has changed. I wonder what an old maid would be considered today.

I'm surprised you even know which Mr. Weasley we're talking about, you bluestocking!

^ The insults always make me grin because they're just horrid. I knew it was something bad so I gasped at the screen but then I had to ask myself 'what does that even mean?' Haha.

This is a great story so far. Much lighter than your other one. I can tell you're having fun with it because it reads so easy.

Author's Response: I was concerned with the descriptions being not enough so for you to say those nice things about it, especially Gabi. I love writing her.

I agree on the "old maid" thing! There is a fifty year old I know who just had a baby and boy I was worried about her! Definitely a different standard in the current culture.

I am definitely having fun with this one. It's a good change. :)
