Review #1, by Singularity 

13th August 2011:
"School would be over soon, and Arthur would no longer be on the team, so surely that meant she wouldn't have to feign interest in the game any longer."

Hahahahaha! Little do you know that you will soon be the mother of at least 5 Quidditch playing children :P You can't escape it Molly!

Something bad is going to happen to Cecilia and her family, isn't it? :( It makes sense. You can't try to pass legislation like that with the social climate the way it is and not expect some negative repercussions. I'm totally keeping my fingers crossed for Cecilia and Reid, though I'm starting to think it's a lost cause.

Ok, so I /really/ shouldn't celebrate Molly hexing a third year, but it's Lucius Malfoy and he so had it coming, so go Molly! *waves pompoms* He reminded me quite a bit of Draco in that scene. All talk, but as soon as the other person fights back, he runs off like the coward he is.

It was really sweet that Gideon and Fabian stood up for her and took the blame. Oh sibling love. You wrote that section really well. It was a great way to express affection with really expressing affection. In my experience with siblings, that's exactly how it goes :P

Author's Response: Hahaha... poor Molly. She just doesn't give a hoot about Quidditch. And then all her kids (maybe not Percy) go and inherit Arthur's Quidditch-loving gene. But at least she got to stay home from the World Cup.

Molly and her brothers aren't terribly demonstrative with their affection, but they do stand up for each other. I liked showing the boys' growing maturity here, and the fact they will protect their sister when it's down to brass tacks. Lucius really did earn that little hex.

Cecilia and Reid... I won't spoil it. Keep reading! :) Thank you very much for reviewing!

Review #2, by RonsGirlFriday 

9th July 2010:
I really love the development of these characters - all of them are well-constructed and relatable. In particular in this chapter, Cecilia and the twins showing a different side to themselves - Cecilia's self-restraint when she knew it was necessary, and the twins sticking up for their sister and keeping her out of trouble. And of course, Molly and Arthur are completely adorable, as always!

Author's Response: The twins have really grown quite a lot over the course of this year. The duelling club gave them something to focus on, find some direction. It also develops their relationship with their sister in new ways. She has to see them as young adults instead of little boys. Cecilia really values her father and in particular his work and ideals very highly (her BFF is a Muggleborn, so it's not surprising). She had to control herself through this, which is good for her. Thanks for the review!

Review #3, by Kristin 

4th March 2010:
It's been a while since I read "Unsinkable", but I didn't notice it'd got a follow-up until recently! Although the universe in which the story takes place is a bit fluffy and over-romantic, I have to admit I'm in love with it - the characters especially. You've got so many wonderful OC's (and you somehow manages to keep track on all of them and their personalities never get mixed up), and Molly is just adorable. Also it's funny how old-fashioned they are (it's 1968 after all), at least when it comes to relationships!

I hope you'll update soon (is it almost finished?), and that you'll write a sequel about Molly's and Arthur's elopement! And of course about how their lives are affected by the upcoming war ... That is another strength of this story, btw, how you mix the sweet teenage romance and the quite nasty things that's going on in the world at the time (and on Hogwarts, too - young Malfoy is even worse than his son).

One small question at the end: Most of Molly's friends (all of them?) are OC's ... Do you imagine that she's still keeping in touch with them in the book's era, or do they split up - or worse, will any of them die during the war?? I sort of feel that both Hattie, Siobhan and Cecilia are in danger ...

Author's Response: It is pretty fluffy, isn't it? lol. "What It's Worth" is less fluffy than Unsinkable, which was made entirely out of fluff dipped in chocolate and dusted with sugar, but it's still got the innocence, despite the brewing war. I do try to keep it era-appropriate. As you said, it is 1968 after all.

It is almost finished: There will be one more chapter and a short epilogue. Then there's a brief short story (like a double one-shot, really, only 2 chapters), and then begins "Over the Anvil", which is the elopement short story (currently 7 chapters - may become long enough to be classified as a novella, but right now it's a short story).

Ah, you are very observant ;) There is trouble a-brewing. The OCs that form Molly's circle of friends, yes I do imagine she keeps in touch with all of them, particularly Hattie.

Thank you so much for reviewing! I love hearing from people about my story. :)

Review #4, by theelderwand 

25th February 2010:
"At least its over now," Molly remarked as she sat down next to Hattie. "That was the last Quidditch game I'm ever going to attend, mark my words."

LOL.

Excellent chapter. Blood purity. This nonsense is really getting out of hand. Ravenclaws too? I suppose it just can't be an all-Slytherin fiasco.

Cecilia's restraint was an unexpected, but appropriate, maturation twist. But, sooner or later, this must come to blows; hence the war.

Given that the canon speaks of Arthur always being held back in the Ministry because of bigotry, I can only assume that Arthur will get the job with Cecilia's father, and, not long after he'll be killed. Without a powerful mentor, Arthur will be rather isolated in the Ministry. Just my guess.

I'm really glad Molly hexed the git. And, as usual, her brothers are just excellently well written.

Sex and the Single girl. I really don't know what to say about all this...

Excellent chapter. Hope more is on the way.

Author's Response: It was bound to spread to more than just the Slytherins. Bigotry is everywhere, unfortunately. Cecilia blows her top at small things, but much like Petula (who likes drama over nothing but acts an adult when there's real drama) she holds it together - if only by her fingertips - for the important stuff.

Yes, the blood purity is the #1 theme here, but sex is an issue too at this point in Molly and Arthur's lives. Fortunately that one is easily resolved, and soon - eloping!

Thank you for reviewing!

Review #5, by Harry and Ginny 

24th February 2010:
it was about time that someone hexed Lucius Malfoy, even if it was Molly. i feel bad 4 Siobhan because she could be with Roddy but as she would feel exposed she had to break up with him. it was funny to see Petula and Molly discussing the topic of sex, but that's a natural thing despite many people being shy to talk about it. i can't wait to read more!!!^_^

10/10

Harry and Ginny

Author's Response: Siobhan's pretty messed up, she just couldn't handle actually feeling something for one of her boyfriends. Poor thing. Petula cracks me up ;) Thanks for the review!
