Review:CambAngst says:
As Ray Stevens used to say, "It's me again, Margaret!" Sorry, probably not a song you've ever heard and I'm ~ 99% sure that your name isn't Margaret, but it seemed funny at the time.

Christmas! It's kind of nice that I'm reading this in mid-November. It would be harder to get into the mood in, say, July. Everything felt so festive and warm and cozy in this chapter. All of the descriptions of sights and sensations and smells build a really good picture in my head.

I thought it was interesting that her father quickly dispenses with trying to prevent her from doing underage magic and in fact tells her to keep her wand in hand while he's out. I'm thinking maybe all is not as well in their world as the happy, comfortable Christmas atmosphere would suggest?

A question: didn't Angelina stay at Hogwarts? I'm wondering why Brienne sent her a package in Yorkshire.

I have to agree with Brienne's father. It really was easy to imagine her being much younger based on all of the descriptions and accounts of what happens on Christmas day. It was really sweet, actually. She and her father are together and neither seems overwhelmingly sad.

Fred and George's letters were really well done. Fred seems to be laying it on thick to help out George. Or embarrass him. Sometimes it's one and the same when guys are trying to help one another win a girl's heart. And George's letter was hilariously awkward and touching. He comes so very close to letting her know that he fancies her, but probably still not quite enough for it to really dawn on her. Instead, she just sits there wondering with her heart beating a mile a minute.

I thought it was really lovely for her father to give her mother's wand to her as a gift. Wands always seem to have so much significance in HP stories. I'm wondering what you might have in mind for it.

"... a long, juniper wand from the box, which was clearly the original box from the original box," - something isn't right with this sentence. Maybe "from the original shop"?

Dinner sounds like a huge feast. I giggled at the idea of Brienne unbuttoning her pants. Decidedly unladylike, but at the same time she would fit in really well with George and the rest of the clan.

And a sweet, little baby owl to wrap up the day!

The next chapter should be really interesting. I'm sure the Auror will have a lot to tell them.

Until next time!

Author's Response: Hi!

I'm sorry about the "original box" thing, definitely an error made during my last edit xD I'm changing it, and thanks for letting me know xD About the Yorkshire thing, as far as I know Hogwarts is reeaally up North, and practically the whole of the north of England is taken up with the county of Yorkshire; however, I think I should clarify that in the chapter :)

I'm really glad you liked this one :) The proverbial poop hits the proverbial fan in the next few chapters! Thank you!
