I was so excited to read this, as we never really know much about the interim period between the end of the war, and when Molly and Arthurís grandchildren go to Hogwarts, so I thought it was a great idea that you wrote it, as the Weasleys are awesome!
I loved the beginning of this chapter, as it just seemed so natural and Molly eqsue to be baking. It was a nice start, as it contrasted so sharply to how the Harry Potter series ended, as here itís relatively peaceful and tranquil, compared to the horrors of the last book.
I liked that you recognised that Percy had always been an outsider within the Weasley family, and I always did feel a little sorry for him, because of that. It was nice to see that fatherhood had changed him for the better, and he and Molly did seem to have a really nice relationship, and you could tell that they cared for one another. It was also interesting that you made Molly one of the older grandchildren as she tends to be one of the younger ones, but I found that where you placed her to be more fitting.
It was funny to see that he was trying to apply his work ethic, to child rearing, whether it was successful or not, I guess remains unknown, but it would be funny to see that in practise. I liked the fact that you made him less work centered, as I feel thatís the most natural thing to happen, now that heís not in the midst of the war, and heís realised whatís important in life.
I thought this was a wonderful start to the story, and it just seemed to fit the Harry Potter world so well, and I can actually imagine Molly and Audrey having that conversation. It was just so believable, and itís so refreshing to come across works like this, which havenít completely forgotten anything JK had wrote.
Author's Response: Hi Kiana! I'm so excited to get to answering your lovely reviews.
That's pretty much how this story came about - I was wondering what happened in those 19 years! Although this story certainly will not span 19 years, haha!
I love the comparison you've drawn between the beginning of this and DH. Peace is definitely lasting in the world of The Blossoming - although 'quiet' isn't!
Yeah, I looked at the known birthdates and unknown dates, and I actually have a family tree all of my own. I decided to go against tradition and space the kids out differently - it just felt right this way! So thanks for commenting on that.
Haha, poor Percy. Trying to apply logic to toddler-rearing. He certainly is a much happier person now.
Thank you so very much for saying you found this believable - I really wanted to write something that feels familiar, something canon-based. We're all here because of what JKR wrote, so I want to try and honour that a bit!
Thanks for tagging me :)
