Is there ever a magical child who DOESN'T worry endlessly about what house they're going to be put in? Well, I guess the more confident ones aren't going to worry about such things - see Hermione and Malfoy for examples - but so many kids seem to get so hung up on it! Reason number 593 why the houses shouldn't exist.

It's funny; we don't know much about Albus from canon, but from what we HAVE seen you could easily make a case for him being in pretty much every house! I think Gryffindor and Slytherin are by far and away the most common places for people to put him (guilty as charged) but it's by no means beyond the realms of possibility for him to be in Ravenclaw OR Hufflepuff. And for that reason, I love that you've put him in Ravenclaw. And his forgetting about the other houses made me think of Shandurai, because she did the exact same thing!

Oh, poor Ron. His daughter's a Ravenclaw. How will he bear the shame?

Lucy's immediate worry over the new teacher's teaching skill is HILARIOUS, and so Ravenclaw-ish! Or, rather, so Percy-ish :)

If I was writing a Hogwarts fic, I think I'd probably avoid putting my main character in Ravenclaw, just to avoid the questions at the door! This one is a good one though, I like it :)

Oh, Derek. Not having a clue about Albus' parents. Give it a couple of days and he'll know EVERYTHING. Poor Albus, having the others already talking about his parents. Given how cruel I've been to my James, I can't help but feel sorry for all the Potter kids now :(

Good first chapter! It can be really hard to get the balance of things right in an opening chapter; getting the introductions and basic establishing of things done without it being mundane. You manage it very well here. And, of course, thank you very much for the present! :)

Author's Response: YAY, Ellie reviewing!!! *huggles you super tightly* I just checked this like half an hour ago and then came back and found five new reviews. *is really pleased*

To be honest, I kind of see Albus as fitting Hufflepuff, but I didn't want to just repeat "The Son of the Boy who Lived" so I started thinking how I could make Albus different from James in that and that's what started the idea for this story.

Oh wow, as I told SL, you have NO idea how long I spent staring at a blank screen trying to think of a question for that. And there's one later than I was thinking of the whole previous day and got nowhere, so I eventually googled "riddles" for ideas. I didn't use any of the ones I found, but they started me thinking.

Glad you liked my introductions. Thanks.
