Love the story! It's a great sequel to 'Love and Order'. At the end I was whooping along with all the other Order members when Frank finally asked Alice! And Moody was deliciously down to earth: "Can we continue now? There is a war on, after all."
Sadly, the ending is bittersweet "They would be together, finally and forever." knowing how their story will end..
This was great! I really like how you made them hate & love each other (if you know what I mean). It was so sweet how Frank left that ring for her.
P.S. Did you write any Neville/Luna?
Author's Response: THank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed how this played out for them with all the ups and downs. It was fun. No, I haven't written and Neville/Luna. I think a lot of people find Luna challenging to write. I've only written one real story about her, and it was a Draco/Luna (odd, I know!) Maybe someday an idea will pop into my head. Thank you so much for reading this one, I appreciate it! ~Gina :)
I love this! I (again) love your Alice/Frank fics and am delighted to see the storyline I know continuing. Keep writing!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm so glad you enjoyed this, it was fun although a few things tripped me up here and there. I have no plans to stop writing so hopefully with all this Cotillion stuff over I can get back to their origin story now. Thank you for the recommendation on the audiofic. I don't know if they'll choose it as I've had several others recorded, but I was really touched to see your lovely rec. Thanks again! ~Gina :)
So good of you to write this one since in the other long story it will take some time for Frank to get here, I suppose. Sirius being totally tactless and disruptive was so funny. And I loved how he finally proposed.
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the review! I'm glad you enjoyed it. Yes, the other story is a good year earlier so this scene won't happen in that one. I wrote it hoping it will get me back on track with that one as I do love these two now but am a bit stuck at the moment. So hopefully it will happen soon. Can't you just picture Sirius being like that for someone? Hahah I love including the Marauders if I can. Thanks again, I really appreciate all your reviews! ~Gina :)
Oh! THIS WAS THE BEST! Now, I am glad Frank didn't do it after that ... er... tea session. I really enjoyed this, Gina. I think you have given the two characters a lot of lovely moments in the fic, and it was a pleasure to see the Order in action, and Sirius being himself, of course!
Author's Response: See, always a reason. For some reason, I had this very clear picture of Frank impulsively proposing at an Order meeting and standing up to Moody to do it, lol. And it gave me a chance to include the Marauders so yay! Thanks so much for the reviews, I really appreciate it! ~Gina :)
HAHAHAHAHA. I died when Rosmerta kept butting in lmao. Oh dear. Sorry, I am just giggling at all the lost opportunities. Although, if they're almost living together, why has Frank not thought of asking after a nice session of ... er... tea?
I'm sure you have reasons for that. :) Okay, I am adoring this fic so far. We always read so many sad stories about the Longbottoms it's almost bizarre seeing them this happy, this untainted. Can't wait to see what happens next!
Author's Response: I know, right - the stories about Frank and Alice are always sad, always after their torture. But they had to have been strong, vibrant people to have been respsected Aurors and in the Order. I am really enjoying writing about them. They might be the closest to OCs I've come, since there is very little to base them on. So I'm glad you enjoyed reading about them. Of course I have my reasons for him not proposing after "tea." I had a very clear vision of his actually proposal that I had to write up to, hence all the interruptions. Thank you so much for reading this, I'm glad you enjoyed it and giggled! ~Gina :)
