Loved it!! The kids, you portrayed their misbehaving soo sweetly!!

I addored it!!!!! I expect you'll be posting something about James, maybe how he was bored out of his head during said ceremony???

Great story!! I thought you had a really good idea, having them seeing Wicked. And Ron loosing the bet and all was very enjoyable!! Did they go see Nemo??

Author's Response: Thank you so much! Yes I will be writing about James at some point though I haven't written it yet. They did see Nemo... I thought Dominique would enjoy that especially since the fish are almost as clueless about muggles as wizards are, so the kids could definetely sympathize.

I love these! I also have a love for Audrey and Dominique... they seem more interesting to me than some of the other next-gen characters.

I like your portrayals of the characters... I think Audrey's story is my favorite, though.

One nitpick, however- in both chapters, you use the word 'Its' when it should be 'it's'.

I hope you're continuing these, because I like them a lot :-)

I love how you’ve taken a completely unknown character to us and given her such an elaborate background – Percy/Audrey is an oft overlooked pairing, and it was great to find such a well-written piece on them. I’d like to see more, even though this fic is just a oneshot. You made their relationship seem very believable. You’ve made Audrey into the perfect wife for Percy, in my opinion. You’ve portrayed her as so down-to-earth and intelligent, but still with a spark about her that would make her fit into the Weasley family just wonderfully. I do kind of wish you had written her with Percy at least a little, but this is great as is and I just think you should write another one. ;)

You’ve developed Audrey’s character very well. It’s the little touches that make a character believable, and you’ve put plenty of them in to make Audrey into someone that your reader can relate to and sympathise with. Things like her getting mad about the weather just because she’s already in a bad mood, and how she wears Muggle clothes against her better wishes just to please her mother. I get the feeling that Percy’s girlfriend would be very much submerged in the ways of the Wizarding World, Muggle-born or not, and you brought that across very well with that statement.

Sophia, too, is a brilliant character. She’s so charming and motherly, yet not in a way that makes her cliché. It’s quite obvious that she loves her daughter and behind everything she says and does, it’s just breaking her heart that she won’t act like a Muggle. At first I was a bit wary of her Dursley-like hate for all things magical, but you’ve given it a good backstory. That definitely seems like the kind of thing that would influence a person like Sophia’s opinion – the only small problem I have with Robert Leventhall’s story is that in canon, divorce is not a common thing. Maybe it’s just JKR playing perfect happy families, but having him run off to marry a “young blonde witch” and start a new family – not to mention never speaking to his first daughter again – just seems a bit too like RL and less like the HPverse, if you know what I mean.

I thought this was a truly wonderful little oneshot. Characterisation is clearly your strong point, and I like the idea of exploring the next-gen characters – especially the lesser-known ones such as Audrey and Dominique. You have the ability to develop beautiful characters that fit well into Jo’s world just from their name and a few details. :) Thank you for the absolutely lovely read, and keep it up!


Author's Response: Wow thank you so much for the wonderful long review! It totally made my day. Charcters are definetely my thing... I have problems when it comes to actual plot. I did wonder about the divorce thing... I much prefer JKR's happy families of course, and I dislike the whole abandoned family soap opera thing, but the way I see it, there can be major jerks in wizards and muggles alike and Robert Leventhall is one of them. (Poor Sophia). Anyway thank you again for your careful reading and wonderful review!! CJ

This is such a great idea. I've enjoyed both so far and look forward to more. I too love the idea of mischievous young witches and wizards sneaking off to watch muggle films about magic! One little thing, I'm having trouble imagining Dominique skipping in jandals (or flip-flops as you call them)! But anyway, well done! Have you thought about doing one about or related to Charlie in any way? I'd like to see his character explored a bit more on MNFF.

Author's Response: Thank you! I really apperciate the review. Hmm... Maybe I will write one about Charlie. He isnt exactly next generation but he is the Weasley we know the least about. And the whole thing about him never getting married... :)

Awh!!! It was such a bittersweet tale!! I'm so sorry for Audrey!!

I liked it very much and I hope you keep posting one shots like this!!!!!!!! Kuddos for a really cool chap!!

Author's Response: Thank you so much! I was interested in Audrey as soon as JKR revealed who Percy married... I wondered who in their right mind would fall in love with him, and this just seemed to fit! :)
