Oops. I totally did miss a chapter. Ah, I see it's a Quidditch chapter, which is why I didn't quite notice (also my gross inattentiveness) but whee, Quidditch! Ha, James, you never know when you've got it good? Though I imagine it would be frustrating to dedicate time to a match he wouldn't play. Hee, Transylvania - and you've got one of my little pet loves, the cross-over between the political make-up of the wizarding world versus the Muggle world and how the former doesn't always keep up with the latter - ASSYRIA. You're killing me. And bless him. I do love James, I love how passionate and stroppy and silly (and not without good reason) he can be, but I do love that he has a level head underneath and I love how it comes out more over Quidditch than anything else.

And bless him for looking after Brigid, and bless him for his concern for her being very wisely affected by his respect for his own nose. Not to mention that I'm sure Brigid can take care of herself. I just hope she's doing it for her own sake, not to make Freddie jealous. It's a BAD PLAN.

D'aww, the funeral. Of course his namesake would love some Wheezes. Of course the Potters are sensible and pragmatic in ensuring their kids know the truth about what's happened and why. And grief like that's a funny thing - in the weird way, not the ha-ha way. You didn't need to belabour the point, especially not after the visit to Lily's grave, but it's a nice, important touch.


Author's Response: Haha, yeah, this is one of those chapters that you wouldn't automatically MISS because nothing massive happens in it. But, you know, grave visits and all that. :) I got so much amusement from the whole Transylvania/Assyria thing! I love the way that the wizarding world totally hasn't kept up with Muggle politics. Carlotta would find it TOTALLY bewildering. James is ONLY sensible when it comes to Quidditch. And people judging others unfairly. ;) He is also a ridiculously loyal/over-protective friend, delete as approps. And thinks too much about his own appearance. BUT boys will be boys! Brigid's theory is definitely that this date will either help her move on, or give Freddie a much needed kick up the backside, so it's a win-win situation for her. In THEORY.

I've always struggled with working out what the Potters would have told their kids, and - more importantly - WHEN. The whole Harry/Al chat about Slytherin and namesakes in the epilogue suggested that they didn't know everything at that point, but I think that they would have known what they needed to know by the time they went to school, and certainly they would have known the full story by this point. This grave bit was hard to write because obviously it doesn't need to be as long as the first one was, but it still needed a decent mention. I like how it turned out in the end. :) Thanks for reviewing!
