An incremental chapter... or is it?
My natural 'discovery' of this story is being complicated by the fact that I often end up validating chapters ahead of where I've read for pleasure, so I know the calm, 'still-life' tone of this chapter is mere ephemera. I also note with curiosity the odd choice for Anna's birthday. Coincidental, symbolic or something more fundamental? Don't worry, I shall await that answer.
The choice of Anna's birthday does lead me to ponder those other characters for whom the day had a great significance -- the ones who will eventually face off in the Great Hall at the cusp of a May morning; a dawning of the new world. Neither have had cause to even acknowledge this granddaughter or a former Head Girl, but surely that is going to change...
Oh, and incidentally, the title 'Head Girl' incurs capital letters in canon -- you might go back to check your text for this minor detail.
Author's Response: Thank you so much for this very thoughtful review! When I wrote this chapter a couple of months ago and selected Anna's birthday, I was comfortable with the choice. Just before submitting this chapter for validation, I second guessed myself. I'm glad you understand why! Thank you for letting me know about the capitalization of Head Girl. I will have to go back and make a few edits!

As the story goes on, I expect something to happen about Sirius. I am sure there is another bombshell yet to go off. One of those stories you have just got to go on reading.

What a fun chapter! I like the Halloween escapades from Neville and Anna's points of view and being able to see how the other students were affected by Sirius' attempt to get into Gryffindor Tower. As for the Christmas hols, it looks like Anna received an early present in the form of her father coming to visit a day early. Also, he's right to help her remember people from her past and to help her remember them with happiness instead of grief. Well done.

I really like the way you interweave actual POE events with AU! Anna seems very nice! :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

It seems that the term is going quite well for Anna and Ginny, with a lot of learning but mostly with a lot of girly stuff. Apparently, the lasses are quite a happy bunch. Apart from the incident with Sirius they have a quiet life without much excitement. Obviously, it pays off, that they're no friends of Harry, who usually attracts trouble.

Anna and Neville seemed to have a wonderful holiday. I'm glad that Ginny is making such a good friend in Anna. It seems as though everything is going well so I'm thinking everything is about to fall apart. I will admit I had a hard time with this review. This is a lovely story about Anna and Neville, but doesn't really seem to have much to do with Harry or Ginny which is honestly what I prefer.
