James's humility in terms of how he views his own personal Quidditch-playing skill seriously makes me love him more because I REALLY love that in an athlete. The fact that it was obvious for Roxanne that James would be playing and that it was obvious for James that Roxanne had just as good of a shot really spoke to me about their characters and how they do try to find a balance between being competitive and being conscientious that they are family.

The entire bit about Roxanne talking about May 2nd and Fred and George's birthday really was interesting. I always thought that Victoire would hate that she was born on the anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts, and although you did mention before you do like George and Angelina together, the way you explained that they didn't help each other was believable, everything considered.

What Roxanne said about having to take a shot in love and relationships is so true and it reminded me of James and Carlotta taking a shot with each other. I love it!

Awesome chapter! (:

Author's Response: James has never really had a chance to become big-headed about his talent and success, because he's always linked and compared it to his dad's own talent and fame. Besides, I don't think Harry or Ginny would let any of their children become too big for their boots! He definitely doesn't take it for granted that he'll play, especially as he recognises how good his competition is. And of course, if he lacked that humility then he'd never have had his breakdown in the first place because he'd never have let his hang-ups get the better of him! He would, however, be much worse off for it in many other ways.

I wanted to show Roxanne's side of things with their family issues to show that Freddie's own concerns aren't totally unjustified. Obviously Roxanne is more pragmatic about it all but it hasn't passed her by. I'm really glad you find the George/Angelina storyline convincing because it's one of those issues where people can go either way in terms of how Fred's death affected them, so it's reassuring to know that the stance I've taken here is believable. I guess this is me eking out every last bit of angst from the Voldemort years!

And yes, there's definitely a parallel here with Freddie being scared to take the plunge with Brigid, while James has managed to overcome that hurdle. Freddie could do a lot worse than to look to James for inspiration! Thanks for reviewing :)
