Title (+Link): Love And Order
Warnings/Ratings: Character Death, Mild Profanity, Sexual Situations, Violence
Reason for Recommendation: There are so many James/Lily stories on the archives dealing with this era, but very few about Frank and Alice. This is in Other Pairing, but I'm recommending here because it's not just about the pairing but the fight against Voldemort, which often gets forgotten in Marauder Era stories.
When impulsive new Auror Alice Hamilton is partnered with the more serious and experienced Frank Longbottom, neither is quite sure what to expect. They have a history, after all, and a different way of approaching the job. Yet in a world where dark forces continue to threaten the safety and security of the magical community, they must work together in spite of their feelings--especially when it becomes clear that You-Know-Who is planning a major offensive that will threaten both their relationship and their lives.
I don't leave very good reviews, but this is the one I left for the first chapter.
"Remember what?" asked a strong, clear voice. "Not April 27th, 1974, by chance?"
Hahahahah - you had me hooked right at that point - heh heh heh. This looks very promising, Gina. I do love your Frank and think you've fleshed him out well, making him a real character. There's a tendency, I know, to make Frank and Alice just like James and Lily, or both versions of an older Neville, but I'm really getting a sense here of what your Framk is really like. I love the fact that everyone thinks he's boring and humourless, but then right at the end you slipped in a joke and showed us his humour. He's so dry - I LOVE him!
