Hi there! Tag!

Oh, this is very interesting! I love the war stories about the people who are on the sidelines. You made an interesting choice with Caradoc as a focal point and I loved how unique his occupation was. You just don't get enough "normal" seeming people in the Order these days.

A lot of things intrigued me: his profession, his resentment at being assumed on the "Wrong" side of the war because of his House placement back in school, and his attitude towards the new recruits. I loved that you are showing life outside of Hogwarts. You have made me very curious about this character.

You did an exceptional job with all of the initial introductions of the characters at the Order meeting. Everyone seemed to have their own voice and their own concerns. Sometimes I don't get that from fics, but it definitely shone through here.

A well-done first chapter!

Author's Response: Hey there! I know - all but one of the stories I've read about the first war were all to do with the Marauders and I wanted to do something different, so I could really focus on the war rather than children growing into men, weddings, babies, etc. There's so much going on apart from that and that's what I wanted to focus on, hence Caradoc.

Ooh yeah, he has a whole bucket of unresolved issues :P He's a bit angsty, but he's a good guy really! It took me ages to work out what his profession would be so I'm glad you like it!

The Order is a group of such strong characters - Hagrid, Dumbledore, McGonagall, James and Lily - so I wanted to make sure they were all their own people, rather than a collective mass, you know?

Thank you so so much for the review and sorry about the late response!
