Review for The Younger Potter Twin

The Younger Potter Twin

(#) sparky40sw 2006-12-05

Some really interesting ideas here, loved the casual manner with which Harry cleaned up the shop. The final scene of harry and Mary discussing his future was fascinating, although the thought of being betrothed at 12 is quite frightening. Since my wife is more than 2 years older than I, she probably would not have been considered, that would be a tragedy.

thanks for a wonderful, insightful story
warm regards

Back in the days of serious noble & royal betrothals (say pre-1650s), a few years difference with the woman being older was not too uncommon (if her family was important enough). And of course, childhood betrothals (ie under 8) were not uncommon.
