Review:Penelope Inkwell says:
Wow. This was a really marvelous chapter. Of course, when you finish reading DH, you like to think that it'll all be happily ever after. But that's just not the way life works, is it? And of course it was worse during the war, but James is right, it still would have had reverberations.

You've done a great job of thinking through the difficulties all of them might face. It's sad to think of Fred and Angelina being that way, but it also makes sense. And Lucy and Molly, having to deal with the fact that their father betrayed the family--I never really thought about the fact that that information might get around, and how hard it would be. And I just love what you've done with Lily, highlighting the difficulties of being a Squib, which is only lightly touched on in the books.

You've thought this all out and explained it wonderfully. And that's why we have fanfiction, I suppose. We get to explore the problems that are left, after the cover closes. I think you have truly done an incredible job of this. I hope you know just how good a writer you are. Your words just flow in a way I seldom find in fanfic. I'm so glad that I've found this story. I hope to enjoy reading your excellent work for a good long while.

Thanks.

Author's Response: I really loved writing this chapter and exploring the themes in it. The Weasleys are such a unique family, in that they ended up more involved in the war effort than perhaps any other family. I don't think it would be easy, to have that kind of legacy attached to you at all times. And at the end of the day, that was where James' downfall lay; he worried too much about the comparisons, instead of just trying to be his own person. It's a downbeat note to end the chapter on, but I think it's a sentiment that needs exploring. I can't thank you enough for your kind words on this, because it's a chapter that I was really pleased with. Thank you ever so much for reviewing :)
