Hm, nice beginning :) I'm not usually a big slash fan, but this sounds interesting. Rory and Lysander seem like great friends - are they each other's only friends? And, because for some reason, I always want to know this, which year (and/or House) are they in? I'm guessing Lysander and Lorcan don't have the twin bond like Fred and George, then?
I like your portrayal of Dominique as well, even though (or perhaps because) she comes across as rather oblivious. It's funny how she keeps flirting with Lysander; a normal person would've given up by now, I guess.
Rory has one blue and one brown eye? Is that possible? I take it her father is the Slytherin Quidditch team member Warrington? Who's her mother?
And does Zonko's sell sweets? I thought it was just a joke shop... :S
Where did that book come from? Did those boys throw it their way, or was it some sort of accident? Was it the fact that James was intrigued by Rory that they stopped by? I can't imagine why else they would do so, if they're really as arrogant as Rory claims. Lysander seems too observant for his own good... poor bloke. And is it me, or wouldn't he get anything if he wins the bet? They didn't set a time span either, did they? (later, when they're 80 or 90 years old and James dies, Rory would still want her 26 packages of gum... theoretically?) It will certainly be interesting to see what James will do.
Hehe, French titles sound a little more... mysterious, or sophisticated, perhaps? :) I say the song is Lucy in the sky with diamonds... and the Beatles? That's really old in their time, no? ;) Anyway, sorry for all the questions, and I can't wait to see what'll happen next :)
Author's Response: Thank you :)
Me neither, but this isn't going to be an intense slash story at all.
So many questions! No, but you'll see that they're very close knit and only trust each other. Well, I mentioned in the chapter that Rory was loosening her Ravenclaw tie but, I guess I wasn't specific enough. They're both in Ravenclaw, seventh year. All these details come later in the story I just didn't want to stuff it all into the Prologue. No, not at all. They're complete opposites and don't get along, as you'll see.
Thank you, I'm glad you liked it. It's always tricky to write a canon character that everyone has their own idea of. It's true, but she's a Veela and doesn't believe that anyone wouldn't like her. Yeah, she does and it's very possible for people to have different coloured eyes. Yes, good spot - all those details will come later, I promise.
It is a joke shop, but I just added that they sell candy.
It was a textbook that one of the boys threw. It was an accident. More or less, yeah. Oh, Lysander, he's so innocent. It's not just you; he doesn't get anything in the bet. But, that's a really important part of the story in the future. No time span, either. Yeah, all eyes are on him now.
Because the translation for the title was really awkward in English and didn't quite have the same meaning, I just stuck with the French. You're right! Yeah, it is, but the Beatles songs never die. No problem! I loved all your observant questions!
Thank you for reading and reviewing! :)
