you almost got my hopes up. Tonks is my favorite character and for a moment there I thought that you had her still being alive in your fic

Well, this is a very interesting story. I don't think i've seen a multi-chaptered fic done in the eyes of a muggle before; normally they're only one-shots. I'm glad that the Potters have found some friends in Jacqui's family, and I'm sure that Jacqui's very much curious about their background. I wonder how she'll react if ever she discovers their being magical. It's not exactly an easy idea to take in. lol I also like how you portrayed the Potters as very down-to-earth while still having those fiery characters that we've come to love in them. Looking forward to reading more!

Hi, I think I've never written to you yet, but I've been your reader (here and on FF.net too) for a long time now.

Oh my goodness I can't even tell you how much I'm enjoying this story. Your characterizations are interesting, just the right combination of domesticity and mystique. I think that you're spot on with your characters. Can't wait for the next chapter.

A very enjoyable story so far. The idea of seeing our favorite characters from the Muggle perspective or living in Muggle society is one of my favorite story premises and you developed it more fully than many other stories. I like how you've developed complex characters in the Muggle narrator and her family, and the detail of their growing friendship with H/G and their 3 kids. Thanks for sharing the story with us!

Really great story. I don't usually enjoy stories told from a third (ie not harry or Ginny's)point of view, but I am enjoying this one. You have done a very nice job of capturing their personalitites. I look forward to the next chapter!

As some others have said, not a lot actually happened in this chapter, but it was facinating to watch the development of all the characters and their relationships with each other. Its a lot of fun as a reader to be "in" on the secrets behind little peculiarities that Jacqui keeps noticing. Can't wait for more!

I've grown to quite like the Charltons. They're nosy, certainly, but it's understandable given the small (uneventful?) community in which they live, and after all, the Potters' behavior (not to mention the odd visitors they have) is the kind of thing that would raise curiosity even in a larger city. There's no malicious intent behind the Charltons' nosiness, so I'm willing to give them a pass, especially since they've been so welcoming to the Potter family. If anything, I thought Harry and Ginny were unnecessarily defensive and confrontational in the scene outside the changing rooms, but I suppose that, too, is understandable.

So far, the get-together for both families seems typical of any outing with lots of little ones. I love how both fathers are equally engaged in the shepherding and disciplining of the children and that they're typical when it comes to arguments over who pays--that one made me chuckle because my hubby gets his nose out of joint when he doesn't win the check. I love it how Jacquie worries about the state of her house at the beginning... I'm that way, too. Looking forward to the rest of the day and the mischief James and Henry can get themselves into.

Oops - need a beta for my review! I was talking about Jacqui.
Reviewer: smokeylovegood Signed Date: 2011.03.08 - 02:33PM Title: Wet Afternoon
Good chapter. I am enjoying the character development. I think she is a basically good hearted, kind woman whose active imagination and lack of a personal life outside of her children get her into trouble. Hope there is nothing more nefarious to her actions, she's growing on me. But, the way your stories go, my money is on her solving one mystery or another. Possibly both the Potters magical secret and the true nature of the werewolf murders/murderer.

‘I just wee inna pool’ - Do you have to make this story so realistic?

I really enjoy your story. It's fun seeing the Potters through a muggle's perspective. I haven't read a story like this before.

Well, Ginny may be *hoping* that Harry won't need to go into the office, but I wouldn't be inclined to bet that way. :-} But, of course, if that happens, Harry's visit to the Charltons' will be delayed....

That chapter seemed to start more slowly than most others but it was still well balanced overall. Good thing Jacqui is perceptive... it should make for interesting times ahead :) I wonder what Mary would think of Polly... lol

Great Chapter! I loved the rush to get ready and the realistic sniping back and forth. Poor Harry having to figure out how to explain all of his scars (he sure has enough of them). I like how observant Jaqui is even if she doesn't understand what she is seeing. It's the little things that the Potters wouldn't think of. I hope Harry doesn't have to go into work :)

Swimble and wordices were priceless!
