Chapter: Epilogue: A Call to Arms

Very nice! Fred and George always make me smile! I've totally enjoyed reading this and I've read Grave Days too and enjoyed it!! Great Job!

Author's Response: Thanks This story ended up rather less humorous in the epilogue than it was in the prologue. In a way, it's several "missing moments" from Grave Days. I'm glad that you enjoyed it. N

Chapter: Prologue: A Call to Arms

I'm not sure what else to say except that I am still loving this piece. How awesome for them to be wandering around the busted up Gringotts after the trio's adventure there. I love how this feels just like canon, Neil.

I must say that Fred's enthusiasm is breaking my heart though... no doubt, as you intended. :) Really good.

Author's Response: Thanks I tried very hard to tie in with the canon timeline. Harry, Ron and Hermione are, I reckon, setting off alarms in Hogsmeade and being rescued by Aberforth when my trio (Fred, George and Ginny) are misbehaving in Diagon Alley. Fred's enthusiasm is (literally) no different to George's enthusiasm in the prologue, It is more heartbreaking though. N

That was great!! It just sounds so right.
You have the true voice and spirit of the twins.
Thanks for giving Fred the last word.

Author's Response: This was fun (if a little sad) to write. My farewell to Fred fic. Fred got the last word in the epilogue because I gave George the last word in the prologue. N

Love this so far, you write the characters well, Fred and George's humour isn't overdone or corny. I'm intrigued what will happen next, keep doing a great job!

Author's Response: Fred and George are fighting a war, they can't afford to overdo the humour. Next, the epilogue.

Chapter: Fred and George's Busy Day

Another good chapter. I like the idea of using Charlie and Bill to be an alibi. I think this is a really cool story, to see what was going on back in the mainstream world while the trio was off in the woods, getting into trouble.

Author's Response: Thank you. The Weasleys will always stick together, I think that even Percy helped them, though I make only the barest suggestion in the story. There is only one chapter left, the epilogue, and then that’s it for Fred and George.

Chapter: Prologue: A Call to Arms

Hats off to you, Neil. This one is just brilliant! You have captured their voices perfectly, and they are so difficult to write well. How did you do that? Another thing I want to commend you on: when push comes to evil, the twins stop laughing in the books. I really like Fred's words with Verity in the cell and her hugging him, and especially in Room 13, how he gets furious when Justin asks if Verity is Muggleborn... that is just right.

Really enjoying this, and anxious for the next chapter. Thanks too, for sticking with canon, and letting us know where we are exactly in relation to the timeline of DH.

Author's Response: Thank you. This story took me a while to get right. Whatever else it is, it isn’t humour (drama with a lot of bad jokes is the category I came up with – post-Hogwarts is where it ended up). I am so glad that you think that I got their voices right. The story grew from a couple of sentences in Grave Days when I suggested that the DA members too old (or too Muggle-born) to be at school would somehow organise themselves. Sticking with canon the only thing I can do. This is a sgort prologue, Busy Day, epilogue, and that’s your lot. The story of Fred and George, resistance fighters and magical graffiti artists who are always ready to make pompous people look foolish is almost done. And no-one has spotted my Doctor Who in-joke!

Chapter: Fred and George's Busy Day

Oh my gosh!! I laughed so hard!! That was great!! Loved it!

Author's Response: Fred and George are anarchists, in the "non-recognition of authority" sense. They were like that at school and I suspect that Dumbledore encouraged it. Revolution with a sense of humour.

Great a story about Fred and George!
Super start, really draws you in.
Looking forward to the next chapter.

Author's Response: Thank you. This (in case you hadn't guessed) relates events alluded to in the early chapters of Grave Days. -N-

Chapter: Prologue: A Call to Arms

My first question, and perhaps the most obviousl one, is why these people haven't tried to join the Order. Is it a matter of not knowing how? And is there a hint that the boys were headed to the Cauldron deliberately? It seems quite a coincidence, otherwise...

I like the concept and am interested in seeing where you take this.

Author's Response: The first answer is, I'm not certain who is in charge of the Order, Kingsley? Contacting an auror on the run would be difficult. A hint? "‘Thanks for coming, guys,’ Katie said. ‘We need your help.’" Keep reading. -N-

This is shaping up to be a cool story. This is one of the parts of the background story that I most wanted answered, and the start you've provided looks promising. I look forward to following this one.

Author's Response: Thanks. this is a 10,000 word short story in three parts: prologue, chapter, epilogue. i hope that you continue to enjoy it. -N-
