Oh, Fred, if only you could see several hours into the future...
This was a wonderful picture of what very probably could have happened during the time HR&H were on the run. Fred and George would not have sat back on their haunches and let the dark forces get on with their jobs of creating mayhem and committing murder without their retaliatory antics causing their own brand of mayhem.
I loved that you have given the twins monkey patronuses; very fitting indeed. It was also a wonderful payback that Fred and George got Derrick and Bole. You memory of canon is very impressive.
I am thankful the story ended before the horror of Fred's death. Everytime I read a story with that particular death in it, I cry all over again.

They're practically a two-man army. How many OWLs did these two get? Seems as if they could have blitzed every exam, except perhaps History of Magic.
Very funny and imaginative chapter. I hope the next doesn't include Fred's death.

Nothing can dampen the twins irrepressible sense of humour. Loved how they got rid of their tail.
I was just thinking why was Hannah not going back to Hogwarts and voila, you gave me the answer in the next paragraph.

Another amazing story! Fred and George were very in-character and hilarious. It was very nice to read about what other characters were doing prior to the battle. I loved how the last lines of the first and last chapters were matching, but the last line of the last chapter was so sad, knowing what was going to happen to Fred.

I liked the connection between the last line of the prologue and the epilogue – although I’m not sure whether to be happy or sad, knowing Fred went into the battle not realising it would be anything but funny.
Really great story – too bad a sequel isn’t possible. :-(

Exactly how you would expect Fred and George’s to behave during the war. :-D Their humorous approach of fighting Death Eaters, Umbrigde, Law Officers – and who else stands in their way – is actually really effective. The headsless hats and the Death Eater-detector were genius, (though, you can only hope the twins stuff doesn’t fall into the wrong hands).
I really liked the ‘Verity Truth-bomb’ (though I suspect Harry wouldn’t like being ‘Desirable no. 1’ either). Using Bill and Charlie as Fred and George substitutes were also great!

We knew that Neville, Ginny and Luna – and the others who were still at Hogwarts were fighting, but obviously, (some of) the DA-members who’d left school would want to fight, too!
Fred and George’s are more than merely comic relief – but I think they would fight evil with the best weapon they have: Humour. Some of the stuff they invented is actually really useful.
One thing you should look at: Fred says ‘there’s almost twenty people in the order.’ In OoTP Ron says, he and Hermione had seen about twenty people at Grimmauld Place, (but they suspected there were more) – and several members were working on actively recruiting new members at the time. Three years later, wouldn’t there be more members than “almost twenty”?

An excellent setup for Tales of the Battle. This seems to basically blend right into that storyline seamlessly. It gives us a little extra view of what some of the other characters were doing right up to Ginny, Fred, and George entering the Room of Requirement before the Battle.

Reading your stories makes me want to read all the books all over again. You're a really good writer.

Fred and George are just the best, aren't they:) You managed to capture them spot on.
You should think about marking the beginning of a new part more clearly, like adding an extra "enter" or something. LIke this it's a bit confusing.
"'Not yet,' Verity replied with a sigh, as the twins slowly closed the door. 'But there's still time, I've only worked for them for a couple of years.'
'I think we're rubbing off on her,' Fred grinned.
'You must be mistaken, Sheriff,' Fred said politely to the most senior of the three Law Officers standing on the shop floor of Weasley's Wizard Wheezes."
But great work otherwise:)

Like it so far! Especially the new Hannah:)
It gives a good sense of what is going on, outside of Harry, Hermione and Ron.
