Story Summary:  A filling-in of The Order of the Phoenix from George Weasley’s point of view. What kinds of conversations did they have with their roommates Lee Jordan and Kenneth Towler (and the other 7th-year Gryffindors) while Harry is whining and Ron is trying to figure what’s going on? Who did they talk to before securing rent on their shop in Diagon Alley? Backstory for the twins, hopefully adding a 3rd dimension to two HP characters usually given short shrift and fairly flat descriptions. I wrote this over 9 months, and if you’ve read OotP, I hope you’ll appreciate all of the canon references. Has a sequel: “Together, Alone.” A further (adult) trajectory for this, post-“Together, Alone” is the “Cartography of Fire” series.

Gioia’s Rec:
I love reading canon from alternate POVs, and this is a classic example of that approach done right. The little bits of Fred, George & Lee which we see in canon are expanded upon to create a convincing narrative and fascinating side-story. This great coming-of-age tale will make you adore the twins, their loyalty and their ingenuity more than ever.
