There is nothing good about Carla needing to flee. Between this and her having that little episode when they found her outside the pub, my angst-dar is pinging. NO GOOD THINGS.

Except this chapter! I like Quidditch, and it's a pain to write it well, but this one's good! You don't get too bogged down in the minutiae of the game while still making it exciting and easy to visualise. I think keeping a tight narrative on one player is the best way to evoke the atmosphere so long as you can get the actual events covered (basically, I guess, how Rowling wrote the games in the books!) and this does it with James. OH the Daddy issues. I want to know all of the Daddy issues.

Bloody Weasleys! I think a chart's a most sensible idea, *I* struggle to keep track of the whole horde of them. And that's only with FIVE out of SEVEN siblings having had kids. It doesn't help that thanks to so many sons most of the grandkids are ALSO Weasleys.

But good stuff! Good action, good characters, you managed to make the horde not too incomprehensible and it's good to see some of the more significant secondary characters like Rose and Al. All good!

Author's Response: Angst-dar is right to ping. LIPS SEALED ETC ETC.

Yuh, this chapter was an utter nightmare to write. I mean, firstly we had to actually get here, this match was initially planned to happen in 16, after Lily and Maddie and co visited James, but then the teapot started singing and that was that plan screwed up. THEN I remembered the whole England Quidditch thing so this match got pushed back AGAIN. And THEN all of the family wanted to be in the chapter before the match even STARTED ... it was awful. I actually enjoyed writing parts of this chapter, it was just a logistical nightmare. And I didn't quite realise how nightmarish Quidditch matches were to write ... good thing there's no more of those, eh? ;) GOOD TO KNOW I got this one right.

DADDY ISSUES COMING UP OKAY? Big Things will unfold over the next ten-ish chapters, fingers crossed, so hopefully your curiosity will soon be sated.

I'm not TOO bad with this Weasley generation; at least, I know they all exist, it's just sometimes I seem to sideline a couple of them accidentally (poor old Louis!). Though that may be for the best. Less is more. And I've gone and created the next generation too. I AM NOT HELPING MYSELF. Carla will be carrying around that family tree for YEARS.

GLAD YOU LIKEY. More of Rose and Al(bert) next chapter too. Thanks for reviewing!
