Okay, gingersnape here one last time until an update here with your chapter. I have a few things not raltated to the chapter, so I'll quickly get throug my comments on the chapter, then have the other things.
So, I liked the pillow fight in the morning as it was something that was plaugil and yet it was like a visual of the tension that must have been in that room! Marlene sure is a pain, but I kind of feel bad for how concentrated on what she wants to believe that she over reactors when the bitter truth finally reaches her.
As for the girly gossiping, I really liked how you wrote that scene and I felt like I was really there, squeeing with the girls. :)
Aww! *swoon* Sirius and Tina are SO perfect for each other! Oh I just love them together to pieces! I hope Bella doesn't actually beak them up! :(
Spelling and Grammar: You have a fantastic beta; I didn't see any runaway typos this time Good luck going through the other chapters! (Hopefully in less time than it took me to get through them! :C)
Pacing and Flow: Again, great flow in the chapter!
Overall, it was a nice way to show the after the party relationships between the characters and was really well done. No CC for this!
Now, onto a descision that I have spent a lot of time thinking about, even if I haven't had the reviews for you to show it, which is precisely why I have had to make this descision. After nearly two months of not reviewing and having Hiding Bruises continually going to the back of the queue, jaunting my to-do list, and putting you in a really rotten and unfair position, I would like to take this story off of a project story and just do it through the normal review queue so we don't have any more lulls in reviewing. This is completely my fault for not being able to prioritize these well, and I apologize for making you wait for so long and have to go to the queue for this, but I think it is going to be the best way to get you good, well thought out reviews in on time. I am also going to take my othe Project story off of Project, and I don't mind if you decide not to request any more reviews or if you request for every chapter until it's done, but I think this is the best way to go. Feel free to PM me about it if you have any questions or suggestions on a better solution, or if you want to send me an angry rant, or cookies. I like cookies, but if there's anything else you need, I'm only a PM away. Have a great day and I'll see you on the forums,
Author's Response: Hi, it feels a bit like the end of an era right now! I guess I'll just have to write more chappies for you to review!
I loved writing those little girly bits so I'm glad you thought it worked well!
Ahh, well you will just have to wait and see on the Bella front!
Woop woop for my beta!
Ok, that's fine with me, I will definately be requesting once I have a new chapter up!
Thanks so much for all your wonderous reviews!
