"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!
Can't wait for the rest ... hmm, I might threaten to reveal Kara's plot to everyone in return for her spilling the beans on this - heh heh heh.
Really good! ~Carole~
Author's Response: Oh yayayayay! You've made my day! Thank you so much for reading this! I'm so glad that their sense of character came through from the start. I just hope I can maintain it, eeeeep!! But yes, that is exactly what everyone thinks about him, and dry is the perfect word for him. There is an exchange in the next chapter I just love for that dryness, lol. I am SO glad that they didn't come across as James and Lily here because - well, that could have certainly happened, given how close they are to my heart. ;) But I've got a fairly clear idea of Frank in my head, and Alice almost as much, and I'm so glad that it's there and not just a rehash of my J/L stuff. I did have them bicker a lot more but that's tempered a bit as I've written forward and backward. Really, it's the Order-era plot that's driven me batty, not the characters. Squeeeee, thank you so much! ~Gina :)
