*hugs this fic*
I want to love this fic, but I don’t. Not because of the writing, but because of the implication that there’s only value to be found in being a Weasley & not in being a Johnson. One of the things that bugs me about the Golden Trio narrative in the books is the implication that it is only the sacrifices made by Harry, Hermione, & Ron (and by extension Ron’s family) that matter. Everyone that fought was a hero, whether they wound up with a famous last name or not.
Conversely, that’s exactly why I *hugged* it, because I think that’s the kind of reactions and responses these two would get, leaving Angelina out in the cold because she’s not a “Weasley” and she is a “nobody” and she doesn’t know how to protect her kids from that while they’re at school especially, and the other “traditional” Weasleys are oblivious to it all. But I do understand your critique of it, definitely.
