Longest review from me ever starts.now:
IT'S ALL OVER.
Oh dear. Excuse me while I cry. I'm KIDDING. Sort of. I'm so sad that this story is over. I really, truly am. BUT, I want to know about this Gabe character. He seems very, I don't know how to put it, but reliable in the sequel. Super excited here for the sequel! :D
This was a lovely chapter as always and I'm so nervous about Rose and Scop. They just..belong together. It seems weird to have them apart after they've already been together, right? Maybe that's just me :P
Hookay, let's get this going..
James has to be one of the versitle characters to write about even though most writers stay close to good looks, charming, a ladies man, and Quidditch crazed. Yet yours stands out the most to me. For James to be completely blind to how one girl treats another astounds me. But, it also makes so much sense and that I've seen this happen in real life. James in this story just..fits.
Charisma. Where in the world can I start with Charisma. I used to think that the sweet and innocent routine would get too annoying to read for me. The plain jane act does get to boring for me. I'm used to the stories with the Quidditch-obsessed tomboys who don't speak to guys every often. Then Charisma shows up in this story and that assumption is forever forgotten. Sweet and innocent Charisma, to me, makes this story. Combine that and James' charm, wit, and humor, of course this would be a good ol' favorite.
My favorite character besides the two main ones, would have to be either Nate or Drew. I found the banter between Drew and Charisma always light and funny. Together, they would've made a cute couple (not as cute as James and Charisma of course). Drew- I remember feeling heartbroken when Drew found out about Charisma's secret and 'left' for a while. I practically screamed 'no', because that's how much I truly loved him and Charisma together as best mates. Then we have Nate. There's not much to say except I love him as a character. How smoothly he came into this story line, bringing Lois and Dan into as well, was amazing to me. It's basically how friends are made in High School, and for me personally that's hard to write about. So, congrats on that :D.
Scorpius Malfoy...that boy completes me. They way you put him in James' place before seemed to go so well. I would originally think that either Fred or Albus would fill that, but no, Scor did and you did a fantastic job writing that.
Dixie and Lois. The gals. Perfection on their part, in my eyes of course. Dixie actually reminds me of my friend. She's crazy as well. Lois is just,- I can't explain how much I loved her character.
Which brings me to Dan. Dan's brother got me caught off guard. I don't remember if I had told you that, but it really did. I did not see that coming, but it was perfectly planned and I loved it.
Hmm...how else? Rosie? I'm a little conflicted about how I feel about her and Scor, but I totally see what's she's seeing. But I would also see that Charisma is in love with James, and has no intentions for Scorp (which in my opinon is crazy). But I do see why she cheated although I don't see why she had to.
I think I got everyone how really mattered the most to me..atleast I hope I did. Haha :D
Author's Response: Thank you very much for the review. I'm sorry for the late reply - I've been very busy. But the sequel is up now if you wish to read it :P I'm so glad that you've enjoyed this story! :D
Gabe is a lovely boy, I will say only that - there isn't a bad side to him, so for Dixie to have a friend like that, it's good ... and rare.
I tried to make some of the characters more realistic than others. I wanted people to be able to relate to them and I'm glad that you have recognised a characterisation from at least one the them :P
You've managed to pin point the characters personalities perfectly, just how I wanted them to be perceived.
Thank you so much for the review! You're seriously the best Dana. I have looked forward to reading your reviews since you left your first one. I can always count on you.
