Hello there!

I don't tend to read many Next-Gen stories, but perhaps that should change. I really liked this beginning to your story. Rose certainly has an interesting job and it's great to hear about another side of the Wizarding world. After all, someone does need to go after those who skip out on court dates, just like in the Muggle world.

I really liked how you built her world in this chapter. Your description was fantastic and, without laying everything out at once or being overly descriptive, it was easy to see the outlines of Rose's world.

Rose's personality was also well done. She has a very snappy personality (if that makes sense). She understands who she is and what she wants - even if her living situation is still a little shakey.

It was also very interesting to see the big Weasley family from Rose's perspective. The difference between Ron and Harry as Aurors was an interesting detail - I can understand why Harry wouldn't share the details of his cases with Rose, even though it makes her job more difficult.

Unfortunately, I have a sense that this case won't go so easily for Rose. Perhaps the man with the unfortunate name is a lot more dangerous than he appears. Or just not as easily found.

All in all, this was a great first chapter and I really enjoyed reading it. I'm definitely moving on to the next one! Great work! :D

Author's Response: Ah, I should note here that bounty hunters do not exist in the United Kingdom. Since these stories are inspired by the Stephanie Plum series, I went ahead with it anyway. Artistic license. That's my story and I'm sticking with it ;)

Rose does have a lot of surety about her life, really. Even though she's quite lazy and has no desire to have a regular job, she does enjoy her work and in particular the ability it gives her to sleep til noon whenever she likes. I'm glad you like my portrayal of her.

Harry is her uncle, so he doesn't have that father-daughter connection with her which Rose uses to guilt or otherwise wheedle her dad into giving her information on cases. It comes in pretty handy.

If it went easily, there wouldn't be a plot ;) So naturally it won't go easy for her. I hope you enjoy the story, and thank you so much for reviewing!
