This is a lovely one-shot! It was great to see someone writing about Alicia - she's never in stories outside of ones dealing with Quidditch, and I like the idea that she becomes an Obliviator. It's not a career that a lot of people write about, though after reading your story, I wonder why it's not more popular. It sounds like a fantastic job, taking one around the world like that - but it probably comes with its own dangers, such as resistant muggles and potentially dangerous situations. Yet it's the kind of potential for adventure that I can see appealing to Alicia - after all, she was a Chaser, the Quidditch position that has one constantly on the go.

I can't remember whether I've read anything you've written before, but I thought that, in this story, you writing was excellent. The narrative flows smoothly and I especially liked how you allowed Alicia's thoughts or word-choice show through - it revealed more of her personality and was effective in making me connect with her faster. I also liked the amount of detail you included about the political structure of the magical communities around Europe. For a story that everyone had to create on short notice, this amount of detail shows a lot of thought and creativity, making this story feel like it came straight out of canon. It was a wonderful way of recreating the magical world!

I'm glad that the House Cup has given me the chance to read this story. I'll definitely look out for more of your work in the future - your writing is fantastic! ^_^

Author's Response: Hey!

Thanks so much for the really lovely review! It definitely meant a lot to me! I'm glad you liked how Alicia was the main character in this story. I definitely like working with minor characters more as I have more space for creativity! To be honest, I picked Alicia as I thought she was a character we all knew, but also a character who we didn't really know (personality wise), so I thought I could fit her into this story and explore that a bit. I didn't actually think of it in the way you did - of how she was a Chaser, so being on the go/adventure would be something that would appeal to her but.. that's actually so perfect. I know one or two other reviewers have expressed doubts about seeing Alicia in a ministry job.. but that reasoning makes so much sense!

I hope I don't sound like a stalker, but you left me a review on my House Cup story last year too, haha! Lately I've only posted like one story a year (for the House Cup), so it's easy to remember these details! :P Thank you so much for the compliments! Even when I'm making up stuff, I'm a big stickler for canon so I'm so glad you thought that it was canon!

Thank you so much for reading and for leaving such an amazing review! Your comments really mean a lot to me! :)
