Ooh whimsy is a lovely word. Best you keep going with it I think xD
Am impressed with your cast I must say, two redheads out of five is always a good start! Although did think Gemma Arterton was going to be Lisa - not Susan, but obviously works this way just fine!
Padma is a lovely character. Seems as though she's very much the mother of the group, with an issue or two of her own to keep her interesting.
I'm not sure I like Nott, in fact, I'm pretty sure I don't. Seems narcissistic, pompous and yet strangely bitter. Maybe it's just the whole Pureblood thing, or maybe it's the whole wallowing in self-pity. Oh I don't knoww.
Daphne however is love. Partly because she reminds me of the sort of character I write far too often, and partly because she's just gorgeously twisty. Despite the clearly appalling taste in men, that whole idea of heading down that slippery slope is just fun fun fun.
She's just the right amounts of snarky, whimsical and plain uncaring.
Last thought type things. This: I wish I owned Portree, they're the best team the league has seen for some years now. If I could convince Collette or Gina to jump broom I'd die happy
is impressively sneaker. Made I laugh!
Now, next chapter with some Lisa Turpin soon?
Author's Response: whimsy IS a lovely word I should use more and I SUPPOSE since you asked nicely I won;t just give this up completely :P
Cast was lots of fun to make, and while I adore Rita's banner to pieces, the girls came out a little bit different than expected. Bryce, who was Susan, was more sex kitten than I expected, Romola/Daph more wistful and Gemma more vivacious, so I swapped around characters because it's such early days with this story I could still do it.
Padma is heaps of fun to write - actually, they all are, and they all are basket cases, but normality is just dull.
LOL I actually love that you don't like Nott. He's meant to be a mixed bag, and the universal love from the females he's gathered, though lovely (have to stop using that word!!) isn't quite what I intended. I think we've chatted before about how girls in ff tend to write overly masculine characters, Theo is meant to be the pretentious, in touch with his feelings type who my male friends have theatened to punch if I ever go out with :o
Actually Daphne DOES remind me of your Insane!Gorgeous!Girl a bit, and she is so twisty and I am going to exploit that shamelessly.
Bahaha I was wondering who would pick up on that, could not resist sneaking that in.
Next chapter is being written! Thanks for the review m'dear, muchly appreciated!
