    Next-Gen Weasley/Potter

    I have a question about all 12 Weasley/Potter grandkids. So, I hope I put this in the right forum. I'm so sorry if I didn't!!

    What do you think is their age order?
    I think this is a pretty tricky question and it never says in the books. Right now I have it down as:
    Victoire, Molly, Dominique, Fred, Lucy, Roxanne, Luis, James, Albus, Rose, Lily and Hugo.
    Everytime I look at it though I switch around a name or two. I would love to hear your opinions or maybe somebody knows of some more info that I'm missing.

    JKR hasn't said anything about their ages except for what we can speculate about Harry/Ginny's and Ron/Hermione's kids based on the epilogue.

    Here's how I picture it as of 2017 (the year during the epilogue):
    Victoire - 17
    Dominique - 15
    Molly - 14
    James - 12
    Rose - 11
    Albus - 11
    Lily - 9
    Hugo - 9
    Lucy - 8
    Fred - 7
    Louis - 5
    Roxanne - 2

    I think it's pretty individual for how each person envisions the next-generation (:

    I've always had it as Victoire, Dominique, Fred, Louis, James, Molly, Roxanne, Albus, Rose, Lucy, Lily, Hugo. But that's just my opinion.

    It's canon as long as Albus and Rose are around the same age, James is older, and Lily and Hugo are younger. James, Albus and Rose have to be at school the same time as one of Percy's kids (Molly or Lucy), because Percy is at the station in the Epilogue. Also, Victoire has to be there too, but she has to be old enough to be snogging a 19ish-year-old Teddy Lupin. Note that Victoire is Bill and Fleur's oldest.

    Oooh Ok, I actually like that. One big problem I had with my order of the kids was Fred and Roxanne being too close in age. I just can't see George and Angelina rushing to have a second child... I thought they would have a bigger age gap.

    Thanks for your opinion!!

    OH! I had never thought of anyone being younger than Hugo!! Hmmm, so much to think about. Haha, thank you!!

    I don't have them all figured out, but I agree with this. I do have Fred and James as the same year at Hogwarts, but I can see George and Angelina wanting an age gap. Then again, with George as a twin, you could make an argument for the opposite idea as well.

    I agree about Angelina and Geprge wanting an age gap - I see them being really happy with the little boy I imagine they wanted and they a few years later thinking it might be good for him to have a sibling. I have both of them rather younger than the others just because I see George as someone who would take his time before wanting to get married, but that is just a personal thing I guess! And I have Louis much younger too because I have a theory that he was an accident (:

    There are akll kinds of variables to figuring out the age of the Potter kids. With George and Angelina, Fred could have been unplanned, and Roxanne could have been born a year right after him, sort of another little accident.

    Then after taking care of so many little children together, George and Angelina could have been very tired one night and exclaimed "We are never having kids again!"

    But this is part of the fun of the Nesxt Generation; having so much freedom with the characters and being able to mold them to fit the story you want to write.

    I can't help but think George would have got married quite quickly after Fred's death. I can see him being extremely lonely without his twin and desperate to find someone else to be with him. that fact that he went with Fred's old girlfriend says to me that he's not quite as rational as he perhaps was before.
    As such I'd put George's children as slightly older than Harry and Rons'. Not by much mind. They could possibly be in similar year groups at Hogwarts.

    N
    I have to say I don't think this is the reason. I reckon Harry enjoyed so much being with the Weasleys that he wanted a large family of his own. Ginny also seemed to take pleasure in being surrounded by siblings so i can see her whole heartedly agreeing.
    Hermione as an only child and not quite as sociable as others probably only wanted one or two children.
    I can see similar reasons for others having fewer children. Perhaps Fleur didn't fancy ruining her figure for example. And I can see George and Angelina having a tough marriage resulting in a large family being quite out of the question.
    As for Percy the small family again suits who he is as a person.

    *edit* sorry about the strange double post thing. My browser seems to be having some issues with the edit button :S

    I am working on a second generation story and I would really like some thoughts on the cousins' age difference in my fanfic. I do have some reasoning for my choices, but I want to make sure the ages are believable without the explanation and if I need to make a point of explaining their age ranges in the story.

    (in my story, Rose and Albus are seventh years, so I will be basing the ages off of, but I'll also put in their ages in the Epilogue too)

    Teddy -------- Born in April 1998 ----- 25 in my story --- about 19 in the Epilogue
    Victoire ------ Born in May 2000 -------23 in my story --- about 17 in the Epilogue
    Dominique --- Born in August 2002 --- 21 in my story --- about 15 in the Epilogue
    Fred ---------- Born in June 2003 ----- 20 in my story --- about 14 in the Epilogue
    James -------- Born in July 2003 ------ 20 in my story --- about 14 in the Epilogue
    Louis --------- Born in August 2003 --- 20 in my story --- about 14 in the Epilogue
    Roxanne ----- Born July 2005 --------- 18 in my story --- about 12 in the Epilogue
    Scorpius* ---- Born October 2005 ----- 17 in my story --- about 11 in the Epilogue
    Albus --------- Born December 2005 -- 17 in my story --- about 11 in the Epilogue
    Rose --------- Born January 2006 ----- 17 in my story --- about 11 in the Epilogue
    Lysander* --- Born March 2006 ------- 17 in my story --- about 11 in the Epilogue
    Molly --------- Born November 2006 -- 16 in my story --- about 10 in the Epilogue
    Hugo --------- Born February 2007 ---- 16 in my story --- about 10 in the Epilogue
    Lorcan* ------ Born April 2007 --------- 16 in my story --- about 10 in the Epilogue
    Lucy --------- Born October 2007 ------ 15 in my story --- about 9 in the Epilogue
    Lily ----------- Born February 2008 ---- 15 in my story --- about 9 in the Epilogue

    *not a cousin, but I still included them since they are on the family tree and are important characters

    Okay, I noticed a lot of people as having Lucy and Molly as much older than I think they are, but may thinking goes along with how I think Percy and Audrey meet, which isn't until at least three or four years after the war. They don't get married until two years later and Molly arrives about a year after that.

    Also, since George and Angelina's marriage seems to be the last discussion on this thread, I thought I'd share my views on that. I think that right after the war, they would both be very torn up about loosing Fred and find comfort in each other because they both knew him so well and loved him so much. (I am a supporter of the idea that Fred and Angeline dated during their sixth year but break up soon after he left Hogwarts, though they stayed good friends) Anyways, Angelina will always be partially in love with Fred, but tries to make herself fall in love with Georage who admits he has always really fancied her. This leads to a marriage almost exactly two years after the war. After rushing into the relationship, they wait three whole years before having Fred, though Roxanne follows very quickly. Also, even though this doesn't really belong here, I do see them as having a very rocky marriage since Angelina still loves Fred to some extent.

    Hi

    To a great extent, the next-gen characters ages are up to you. There are a few fixed points, but for most of the kids (though not all) you can do what you want.

    Teddy's birthday must be March or April 1998, and Victoire's is fixed, so there are no problems with these two.

    So far as I know, there is little canon information about this lot, so you can use these ages.

    This makes James two-and-a-half years older than Albus, and three school years above his little brother. In my personal opinion, they seem closer in age than this in the epilogue. There is also the problem of Ginny's Quidditch career. For this age to be correct, Ginny would fall pregnant on October 2002, a couple of months after her 21st birthday. That doesn't give her long to have an illustrious Quidditch career (she's 18 when she leaves school, so it's only three years as a professional). That's why I gave James an October 2004 birthday, it allows Ginny another 1 seasons of play (which in my opinion is still very short, but its the best achievable).

    Of course, because I made my James so much younger than yours, that means that my Al has to be several months younger than yours too.
    Also, although a huge number of fanfics make Lorcan and Lysander (they are twins, by the way) contemporaries of the Potter kids, JKR has said that Luna had children "much later in life" than her friends. I give the Scamander twins a March 2016 birthday for that reason.

    I had always considered that Lily and Hugo would be in the same school year, I don't think that is an actual fact, it's simply that (to me) it seemed that they were close in age in the epilogue. Also I have to comment on the fact that Hugo is only 13 months younger than Rose. It's certainly possible, but I really can't see Hermione being so disorganised that she falls pregnant when she's still breastfeeding a four-month old baby. Perhaps that's just me, too.

    There is a reason most people make Lucy and/or Molly are older than you make them. Percy is on the station in the epilogue. Harry hears him talking. Why would he be there if he wasn't seeing off at least one of his daughters? Also, if 13 months between the births of Rose and Hugo is a short period, you make the Molly/Lucy gap 11 months. Again, not impossible, but Percy is at least as organised as Hermione. I wonder if the magical community are aware of the reseach which seems to indicate that short times between birth appears to increase health risks to the younger siblings?

    I also disagree about Fred/Angelina. He took her to the Yule Ball on GoF, but there was no inkling of anything between them during OotP (when she was Quidditch Captain). There were several scenes between them, and JKR didn't show any relationship at all. But that's a discussion for another thread.
