|Reviews for Auror Take Two|

Wow! I was impressed how James & Ginny took care of the 5 death eaters who invaded their house, then how Ginny calmly told Harry & Ron "took you long enough" or something like that! LOVED Ginny's ulterior reason for not making a scene about them destroying her front door - she had her eye on a new one! Priceless! :D I thought you did a great job writing James, and showing his uncertainty of where he should be during the fight...he's become such a smart young man, and gave his parents even more reason to be proud of him! Is there another story after this I should look for? You had mentioned a trilogy...

*dies slightly because of the length* Okay, this was great. It's really hard to hold my attention for a piece this long, but you did so very well. I'll admit that I was a little confused about who was attacking the Potter's home. Though, that didn't keep me from enjoying this piece.
It was fact-paced, like all fighting scenes should be, and I found myself completely entranced, wanting to know what was going to happen next.
Now I could so see James going back to help Ginny. His want to protect his mother was strong, and completely a Potter trait. But the fact that he protects his siblings first speaks a lot, too. I like how James wants to be an Auror too.
While I don't exactly agree with Lily and Albus not knowing any real defensive spells, I can see why you chose for them not to. It fits better in the story. The cloak was a good addition to this story. I liked seeing it in use.
The conversation between James and Harry was really lovely. I like how Harry didn't lie to James, probably because James was of age. James needed to hear those things, that you're not going to save everyone, no matter how hard you try.
I don't actually think Harry was nearly expelled for the incident with Draco. But I could be wrong because it's been quite a while since I read HBP.
But this was gorgeous and I really liked it.

OK, so I was really confused for a bit of this. Would the beginning and all the wards have made more sense if I read the prequel? Anyway, once I got past that confusion, I really liked this. Especially James. He's wonderful, and their conversation at the end is just perfect. I love it. James's words, Harry's reflections on the war, and "Harry did not want to think of Ron without Hermione" just got me for some reason. Lovely story. :)

Me, being the silt person I am, was looking above Consequences for this story. Thanks for yelling me that it was there and it made me double check for it! I really love they way you portray Harry and Ginny relationship and how they interact with the kids. You are a great writer and should keep up the good work!

Aww, that last bit was so sweet :) I loved the little pizza party thing they had going there, and I loved how towards the beginning, Harry was like, 'Why isn't Ginny all mad about the door?' and then Lily was like, 'Because she saw a nicer door in Diagon Alley,', and I just thought that that was funny. I also liked how this isn't just one dramatic fic, and how you added these little amusing bits in. One complaint that I have is that you didn't really give much detail about the actual fighting. I know it's sort of difficult to write fight scenes and it would've been a bit boring having to read them again during the interrogation/question or whatever it was, but I think that it would have been nice, because it seemed a tiny bit disjointed to me. The characterization was great too, because it really focused on how all of the Potter's are really reckless and brave, and I think you wrote everyone brilliantly :) There were no spelling/grammar mistakes that I noticed either, so that makes it better. Congrats on writing an awesome fic!

Excellent story. Can't wait for the next installment. Brilliant way of letting Harry know there was trouble. Can't blame Harry for jumping the gun, but he really should have waited - it was like coming full circle, except this time, hopefully, the result wasn't as bad. Loved the door.

So, I realized that you authored many of my favorite fanfics and went to read your collection. I really enjoy your characterizations, especially Harry. Alot of writers paint future Harry as this wise, almost Dumbledore like character or morosely guilt ridden if they are writing in the immeadiate aftermath of the war. I like that your Harry retains that bit of recklessness that makes him such a Gryffendore, if it is tempered with age and wisdom. I also liked in the first auror story that he had to learn to give a little of himself to Ginny and trust that she was strong enough to handle it. That seems true to the character that Rowling created because he really hates the idea of relying on others for anything, doesn't he. He just can't accept that somebody would want to help him shoulder his burdens. Of course, he learned that at the feet of the Dursleys, didn't he.
Anyway, is there going to be continuation of the Doran story arc? I really enjoyed this, although Consequences felt a little unfinished. I could have read more about the time between Consequences and Auror Take Two. What was the fall out with Ron (btw, I love your Ron) after the strangulation incident? Who leaked the picture and why? And poor Percy! He would be left the cooler head that has to make the hard decisions, wouldn't he?

I had to leave a review here as I enjoyed this story and the extended prologue immensely. Wonderfully written with just the right blend of action, romance and family love in a solid storyline. Did I say I loved this story?

That was a really good ending :D So - is that it?
There were some really funny bits in there too - about James and Albus :D
