This is the first book in the Alexandra Quick series.
The war against Voldemort never reached America, but American wizarding society has its own problems. For eleven-year-old Alexandra Quick, learning she's a witch will only be the first of many surprises. This story is canon-compliant with the Harry Potter universe, but the characters and settings are all original. I've put a lot of work into envisioning a world as detailed as the original series; I hope you enjoy it.
It's been a long time since I've been able to read fan fiction and really enjoy a story. This one draws you in and keeps you interested at every turn! It's a refreshing plot with well developed characters and entertainment at every turn.
Teddy Lupin's first year at Hogwarts. Canon-compliant.
The war is over, and all is well, they say, but the wounds remain unhealed. Bitterness divides the Houses of Hogwarts. Can the first children born since the war's end begin a new era, or will the enmities of their parents be their permanent legacy?
I'm so glad to see that you've started submitting this story here. It was always a pleasure to see your chapters in the queue elsewhere - even if I couldn't mod them.
You've got a gift with your characters. They're OCs, but they fit so well into the Potterverse that it seems like they have always been a part of the world we've come to know. Well done! And welcome, again, to WT!
I can't say it enough: you've got a talent for character development. Your original characters fit very smoothly into canon. Almost as though they had always been there but we just hadn't seen them.
I really enjoyed Neville's admission about his predjudice against Slytherin. It's an honest and raw portrayal of the struggle that many people (even as readers here in the real world) seem to have when it comes to that particular house.
Excellent Quidditch match! I really enjoyed the way you wove together the action of the game itself and the other developing elements of the plot into one intriguing narrative.
Slughorn is such an amusing character! He kind of makes you want to retch and slap him at the same time, actually. Brilliant job on his characterization and his interaction with Teddy!
Ah, Filch and his beloved torture devices. Poor guy never really got a chance to use them, did he?
I'm absolutely intrigued by your plot. A wand thief on the loose at Hogwarts can only mean trouble!
I really enjoyed the revival of the DA. Neville' conversation with Teddy reveals so much about his personality - he's kind and compassionate and deeply marked by his experiences at the same age.
An interesting turn of events! It looks like there is more than just a little trouble brewing for the ickle firsties.
Oh my, pink hallways! Filch is not going to be happy about that! I like the way you're continuing to weave several generations of students through Hogwarts in subtle way.
