I thoroughly enjoyed this story, I'm going back to leave reviews after having plowed through it unable to put it down ;). I had read it before I had my username and it has been fun to renew my acquaintance with Avrille.

Avrille is such a likable character already; she is able to make a complete fool of herself while still being sympathetic.

I enjoyed your description of a Canadian witch doing the touristy sites in London but forgetting to find the magical ones -- hehe.
The initials "R.A.T." for graduate work are so fitting for the Potterverse, I can hear wizarding advanced students moaning about "RATs" in my head. (makes me wish the graduate schools were canon, but what else is fanfiction for?)

"...but only succeeded in nauseating myself after breathing in the smell of body odour and jacket potatoes that seemed to be as much a part of the train as the seats or handrails."

"I spotted The Leaky Cauldron a bit down the street. I ran the last few hundred feet to its peeling green door, desperate for a cold, hard Banshee Buster on the rocks."

These two passages of scene setting details are so wonderful, I feel like I'm there. I may have to swipe your drink name next time any of my characters are in The Leaky Cauldron!

I will try to keep the reviews coming semi regularly till I'm caught up!

Author's Response: OH HI! *glomps* I'm so happy you're reviewing! (though it makes me aware of the shamefully long amount of time it's been since I started "Rowan and Phoenix." DOH, Real Life!)

I thought it was really weird how there's no continuing ed whatsoever in the wizarding world. I mean, seven years of learning how to turn random animals into furniture or whatever? Is that really a skill that's in high demand in the magical job market? I know it's a story and all, but everything else about JKR's world is so intricate and detailed that I had kind of a hard time how their basic economy would work, unless most of the positions are inherited like a shop or you're apprenticed into it. So yes, I thought up wizard college (also cause, honestly, I needed a reason for Avrille to be older than 18 when she starts her apprenticeship cause that's just icky.)

The first description of the tube I have to admit came from my best friend, who spent some time in London and clued me into those details, which I never would have known about on my own. The alcohol part was all mine, though. Haha! Feel free to swipe! I'm constantly wanting to borrow ideas from awesome writers like you as a tribute (I'll let you know if there's anything specific I want to "borrow" so I can get permission and credit you :D)

I'll definitely try to keep up with your reviews as well. I've just been trying really hard to use toddler nap time to finish the next chapters of my two WIP since they haven't been updated i a while. And what do I do? Go and sign up for the review exchange again at TGS ;) Thanks so much for your lovely review, Siri!
