NEW BANNER, NEW BANNER, NEW BANNER!!!
NEW CHAPTER, NEW CHAPTER, NEW CHAPTER!!!
It's all very exciting, Mist. And I'm so sorry for being so late to review. It's been a crazy couple of days between RL and the internet being wonky at my house. But I was really loving this chapter because of all sorts of good things.
Okay, my first favorite thing was definitely the girls with their dressing scene for the party cause you made them so not perfect. Authors always love to make the scenes so perfect and like OMGtheyalllooklikemoviestarsandaresuperhot. I know you aren't like that Misty, but I was just so grateful that you managed to exclude that anyway :).
Secondly, THERE WAS REMUS/DOLLIE. I was rather disappointed with the lack of Sirius/Dollie interaction. But, let's focus on the awesomeness of Remus. Remus is so sweet and responsible; Sirius was silly with his sugar high and I loved how Dollie and Remus pulled him down from the ceiling. I loved that you also made them interact sweetly.
And the entire scene outside!! It was so brilliant to see them dancing and enjoying; I made sure to play both verisions and read with the songs. I loved the Ronan Keating and Lulu with it; it was more haunting and intense with that verison. I think you did a splendid job on it.
AND THE CLIFFHANGER!! You are an evil, evil amazing author. Grr.I was overwhelmed by it all. My question is though why didn't Remus know ahead of time that it would be a full moon? It would seem to me that he of all people would be paying close enough attention to the calender to notice something like that. But all the same, I think its a brillinat cliffie.
I miss you, Misty and I hope that you put up that Pansy/Harry up. I think they can actually be a brilliant pairing at times and are fun to read about. I've stumbled upon a few different stories that I found were really intriguing especially with them. Love and peace to you Misty!
P.S. Glee has done some good songs lately. What has been your favorite? I loved Rolling in the Deep.
Author's Response: I KNOW RIGHT?! YOU LIKE??
I thought I'd celebrate the new chapter with a new banner. As much as I love my previous banner, it was years old and this new one.. GAH, there are no words to describe it *heart*. I'm sorry too for this late response. Buried under assignments and presentations. It's all done, now I have finals to look forward to x((. Anyways, how have you been? Hope all is well :).
You always seem to love the girl scenes, Linds hehe. But I'm glad you do since I can always count on you to get feedback. I don't know about other people but I distinctly remember my teenage years to be incredibly awkward so yeah, that was the direction I wanted to take hehe.
Told you the romance would be back full-swing! There were tiny hints of Sirius/Dollie but the main attraction had to be Remus/Dollie. While it would have been tempting to include more Sirius/Dollie, I thought I'd save it for later ;).
I've been looking forward to writing that scene for a long time, you have no idea. While I did write that scene to the Ronan Keating and Lulu version, I listened to the Kenny Rogers and Sheena Easton version as well though I 100% agree with you, Ronan and Lulu's version is much more haunting. Kenny and Sheena is more happy/optimistic.
Hahaha!! I had to do it, it was begging for a cliffhanger xD. As for the question, the simplified answer would be that Remus was too busy thinking about and working on the co-party, it just slipped his mind. It'll be a bit clearer in the next chapter but your question fuelled an entire new scene in my head *spoiler alert* (between Remus and Dumbledore in case you were wondering) *spoiler alert over* that I might just add in a future chapter so thanks for that hehehe. It was a pretty evil cliffhanger but I'm happy you liked it regardless.
Aaaw, I missed you too, Linds, and our little chats. I've been so busy, I don't think I've even been on the forums in a while. Ah, about the Harry/Pansy, I'm still working up the nerve to post it. It was written literally agesss ago and isn't a particularly popular pairing so I'm a bit worried about the response. Oh gosh, honestly, Harry/Pansy used to be one of my favourite pairings, mostly because I liked to think of it as the anti-dramione. I will post up the one-shot soon though, some time in the coming month or something, possible after my finals.
P.S: I loved the I feel pretty/unpretty mash-up, probably one of my favourites by glee. Dancing Queen's a guilty pleasure, that was on repeat for awhile hehe. Rolling in the Deep was fine, really good because it was a duet but I think I'm too attached to Adele's version to enjoy it as much as I should have.
