Another next gen story that focusses on the pressures on the heroes' children. As the youngest, especially with James having such a strong personality, I imagine that Lily would be somewhat retiring, even if she had inherited Ginny's aggressive nature. Besides, being a redheaded Potter in Gryffindor... It would not have been easy.
This story could have done with a tiny bit more to it. Maybe remembering discussing the houses with James (Gryffindor), Rose and Albus (Slytherin). Perhaps talking to Hugo, who is as pushy as any Weasley boy about her 'responsibility' to be in Gryffindor...
I don't know; this story just seemed too short and too light to me.
Author's Response: I appreciate you taking the time to review this story - I've never written a next-generation story; indeed, I've never written a Harry Potter story that didn't include Minerva McGonagall! Also, I've not read many next-gen stories, thus leading to the slightly fluffy product of my challenge response. I didn't have a lot of time to dedicate to this story, either, because of exams (ugh). I do agree with you that it wouldn't have been easy to be a redheaded Potter in Gryffindor, and, if I ever decide to revise this story, I will certainly include your suggestion of having Lily speak to Hugo, James, and Albus. I appreciate your comments and suggestions - thank you!
