Ella, this is great. I so HATE tortured love stories like this; that is, I hate how addictive they are and this one is VERY addictive. I can tell that already.

So tragic that she overheard that conversation. And I've a sneaking suspicion that it wasn't exactly a "date the nerd" game Sirius and James were playing. Ugh!

That said, this had me laughing out loud: "Well, that went well"

I loved the opening and how you brought it back around and sewed it up with the ending: "Lily Evans always had and always would hate James Potter; everyone knew that, even him."

I'm favoriting this


Author's Response: Glad you liked that line - it's the kind of dry humour that cracks me up, but I'm never sure if it works for anyone else!

Yeah, they definitely weren't playing date the nerd. They were playing "ask out the girl you have a massive crush on, but everyone will think you're pathetic for being rejected by" - a much scarier game. Just needed a good reason for them to be perfect for each other and yet never together, and thus the epic misunderstanding seemed apt.

Ah, yes - the opening and closing lines were the first ones written. Then I just added the minor detail of a plot. Glad you liked it.

Really hope you aren't favouriting it, because I have to admit, I'm not the most regular updater. After all the love during the review fest, I will be continuing it (it almost got changed to "abandoned") but not too quickly. Bad Ella.

Anyways, thanks for the epic review!
