first off, I'd totally disagree about George and Angelina not being in love but I do agree about them getting together out of grief. I believe that they fell in love afterwards but grief was what brought them together in the first place. Irregardless of George and Angelina though, what Freddie said made me feel so bad for him. Fred didn't have to deal with his uncle's death but even now he's still feeling the effects of everything in the war because it's not like their parents can just forget about everything that they experienced through that traumatic period.
Then when James went on to talk about how abnormal their entire family is and how each of their family members went through something difficult because of their parents' past, and yet in the end, the Weasleys still stayed together as a family.

It's so incredible that you wrote this because I'd never truly given this a thought. Of course, I don't think any author who likes the Next Generation would disregard the fact that the Next Generation totally had it difficult because of their family's past but the fact that you wrote about them being literally lost because of where they fit into the world is so incredible. They're not the ones fighting the war; they weren't the war heroes. Yet, they're not completely unscathed because their parents were the war heroes and the effects are still on them even if their classmates just read about the war and voldemort in a textbook.

I loved this chapter. (:

Author's Response: George/Angelina is a next-gen pairing which I would LOVE to explore in more depth because I think there's so much to make out of how they got together! Away from Rails, I would probably lean more towards the approach that they genuinely fell in love at some stage, but for literary purposes I slightly exacerbate their situation here to make it appear more to Freddie as though they really don't love each other. Of course, even in this situation they're still happy and they still like each other, as James was trying to say himself, but Freddie doesn't see it that way.

This chapter ended up a bit more downbeat than I'd expected, but I'd always planned on exploring how Freddie's parents' past affected him, namely in his refusal to do anything about his feelings for Brigid. From there, James' observations about the others just came out, and I think it helps him more than anything else because it helps him see that he's not actually alone in struggling with his parentage. I'm really glad you liked it! Thanks for reviewing :)
