Copied from the Comments section:
reviewer 1: This was recommended to me for people who thought "Dumbledore's Army and the Year of Darkness" reveled in its grittiness at the expense of canon. This fic is shorter, lighter, and echoes canon well.
reviewer 2: Quite nice, relatively true to canon, and a lovely portrait of Gran Longbottom (who seems to have just a hint of Granny Weatherwax about her). The focus is a bit narrow, and some side looks at the supporting cast might not have been out of place.
