Author's Response:

Thank you! I never cease to be amazed at how this old story, now scuppered by DH, still raises a laugh from readers.

Heh - nice twist. And yes - a bit controversial, but hardly unknown in the Wizarding world, I should think.

Author's Response: Thank you! Yes, I'm sure this couple is not the first... GhV

Is it more common in British culture for cousins to be together in "that way"?  I had no idea, since I'm an American.  I have to say though, that this story was interesting!

At first I was convinced that nothing out of the ordinary (besides a little H/Hr love) was going on...and then there was that twist at the end.  :D  Well done. 

Author's Response:

Dear VacantSkies,

Yes, it is both legal and socially acceptable in Britain for first cousins to marry. Queen Victoria did it, and who is to argue with her example? However, it isn't actively promoted, and there probably are pockets of society that would disapprove. I suspect it would be more common among wizards, so the debate about whether it would be desirable would be a little hotter.

I'm afraid I wrote this story to poke fun at the Shipping Wars (back in 2003, when they were at their height), because I think people should remember that these are only fictitious characters. I'm glad I put a smile in your day.

Thanks for reviewing, GhV
