|Review:||A Worthy Gryffindor says:|
Loved this chapter!
George is one of my favourite characters, and you seem to really understand his sense of humour! When he woke Ginny up I laughed out loud! Although you do this all the time, in this chapter especially I felt as though I was actually in the waiting room with the Weasley family, wondering what would happen!
No wonder Ginny is exhausted - training with the England team would be absolutely crazy, and I know what she means about just wanting to lie on the couch and sleep after a hard day! I know that Ginny's wand mishaps could just be tiredness, but that teamed with Harry's little moment looking at her while she was sleeping seems like your establishing the idea that they are truly happy, and settled. The perfect environment for - I don't know - a baby? .
Lee Jordon - who would've guessed it? And poor Katie Bell! Though I don't blame her for avoiding Lee - he doesn't really seem like boyfriend/husband material - maybe he'll make it as a father though - who knows? It's Wierd to see these everyday situations happen in the Wizarding World - I suppose it not all Honeydukes and unicorns! Bill and Ron's bet was very appropriate considering Fred and George's penchant for them - though I knew what was coming, I still hoped it was a girl for Ginny!
Fred dying was definitely one of the most heartbreaking moments of the whole franchise, and when I read that George's firstborn was called Fred, I was over the moon! Thai chapter was a lovely tribute to him, and George's grief was beautifully shown through Angelina's eyes. They really make such a lovely couple!
Thanks for the great chapter! I look forward to the inter-departmental Quidditch matches, and hearing more on Luna, and what she's up to. As for Ginny ... we'll have to wait and see ;)

Author's Response: I am so happy to hear you enjoyed this!
I absolutely love George as well! Saying that I get his sense of humour is one of the best comments I could have got, so thank you SO much for putting this huge grin on my face (really, I wish you could see it!) I'm so happy to hear you felt like you could see everything happen in the waiting room as well. That's always the goal for readers to feel that so it's really great to hear. Thank you.
Yeah I'd be tired too if I was Ginny, training with two teams and all. I think most of us can rely to that 'wanting to fall on the couch and not get up until bedtime' tiredness, haha. I definitely see your point, and I agree that Harry is really at peace with his life and job and might be ready for a baby. I'm not as sure about Ginny, though... She's got a lot going for her right now.
Yeah I'm not sure Lee is the person I'd choose to have a kid with either! Of course, Katie didn't do it on purpose, and now she's kind of stuck with him. (LOVE the expression "It's not all honeydukes and unicorns!" Haha, that was brilliant!)
Yes, Fred's death truly did broke my heart and for me, I think it was the saddest moment in all the books. I LOVED that George named his son after him too. I'm so happy you liked this version of it, and the way Angelina was thinking about all of it. I really like them as a couple too - I know some people don't, but I just don't think George would be able to have a relationship with anyone BUT her. Even though it's not as bad for her, I feel as though she understands at least part of what he's going through, and she's not going to expect him to move on or get over it, because she'll know that it's not possible.
Thank you so much for another great review! As I'm sure you know by now, I always get super excited when I see that you've posted one, and they mean so much to me!! We certainly haven't seen the last of Luna even though she's still off at God-knows-where and is enjoying travelling!
Thank you again, dear xx
