|Review:||Mad Hatter says:|
I'll admit now that I was not as thrilled about the Cad Letters as I normally am because - well, because he appeared on Min's doorstep and we've already discussed how excited I am about this.
Re the Sir Nick review, though, making you happy makes me happy, so there are no imaginary trinkets needed, only responses to my reviews (though, i suppose leaving some for me wouldn't hurt... kidding, love, I'm doing this for my own fun). And I love Ripples. Just saying.
Min is so... adorable isn't the right word, but goodness, I love her to bits. Her cleaning the house and then getting the massive dinner and making everything pretty and doing her hair... It's so real and tragic and why do I always seem to be writing these reviews as procrastination? Anyway, I loved it - she was obviously heavily affected by the situation (is the only reason her father left and they pulled out of society because they were blood traitors?).
AND THEN CAD COMES. I love Cad. I really do. He just appears and then she's all shocked and I swear, these two are my OTP and I'm writing this as I go so excuse me for ridiculous amounts of ramble. Finally, the reason for hating him comes out! First year! Oh, they have problems but I have hope for them yet, you know.
In fact, I'm going to write a happy version of this chapter for my own contentment - I'm going to pause this chapter when Min has her head on his shoulder, at the part where I wasn't sure whether to go 'yay!' or 'ep!' so it came out 'yep!', and the I'll write a happy version where Cad doesn't say anything stupid and they live happily ever after.
AND THEN HE ALL BUT ASKS HER TO MARRY HIM. MINERVA, I'M GONNA-- Homicidal urges towards fictional characters aside, that was a gorgeous chapter. Cad and Min and Cadinerva and Cadmin and them together and aw. And it was all sad and Cad was gorgeous and he loooves her and this review has degenerated into pointless sap and I need to go anyway, so I shall leave it there.
I love youuu.
Author's Response: My deepest apologies for how LATE this response is, but I honestly had no idea how to respond. HOW CAN I RESPOND TO THIS?
I just can't express how amazing it is to have people get so involved in my story, and to tell me about it. It's incredibly surreal and I can hardly believe it is happening. Sir Nick - did i tell you I dedicated it to you? because I did. And you're on the list of people I mean to review when I get time, so just eagle eye my thread so I don't forget!
Procrastination reviewing is heartily endorsed! I actually had to google OTP to find out what it meant, but that.. just leaves me speechless. You are much too kind dear, I don't .. know what to say!
HAHAHAHA you go ahead lovely, write it all out! I think I made that WAY too fast myself, may have edited it since because lovely as it is it wasn't in the right place in the plot (flip slide of planning ahead is characters develop, but you have to write ALL stages of their development)
I'm very, very touched and humbled you enjoyed so much my dear. Thankyou again! ♥
