I've been meaning to read this for a while because it caught my attention but one thing lead to another and I never did so the review swap gave me the perfect opportunity!

I don't know how you did it but you somehow managed to make the next generation fit into 1817 perfectly while still managing to make it sound like next generation. I feel like that doesn't make any sense whatsoever so forgive me for that.

I could picture in my head the family reunions or meetings that must've happened at the Burrow and everything that went on.

If I hadn't known any better, I would've thought that this was written by Jane Austen herself but I do know better. That still doesn't take away from the fact that this is still written brilliantly.

I can imagine how hard it must be for Rose to live in a world where all that is required of women is that they are wives and mothers but they don't have much say in anything else given her nature.

I like the way that you haven't made the Weasley's rich though as they are so often portrayed. It's a new way to look at how their life must be and I'm interested to see how everyone gets by without being filthy rich and being able to buy anything because they've got the money.

Anyway, brilliant first chapter and I look forward to the rest of it!

Author's Response: Thank you for stopping by! It's great to hear that you've been meaning to read this (but of course I'm glad that you finally had the chance). :D

There are a surprising number of ways that JKR's Potterverse draws inspiration from Regency and Victorian society - it's most obvious with the pureblood families, but wizarding society as a whole seems to be transplanted from the worlds of Austen and Dickens. This made it a lot easier to bring the next-generation into 1817, as did the similarities between the wizarding wars and the French Revolution/Napoleonic wars - everything just fit together really well, and I was very lucky that it did.

It's a wonderful compliment that you liked the writing style and thought it similar to Austen's. I'd love to be able to write characters like she does!

I look forward to seeing what you think of the rest! Thanks again for reading and reviewing. :D
