|Review:||Toujours Padfoot says:|
Elodie's mother's smile was now creeping up around her ears and looked like she was out to eat children.
- This line made me laugh. :D
She pulled it off, instead sliding it onto her ring finger and admiring it in the weak autumn sunlight. She would look good engaged.
- This was a pretty image. I can't help but to ship Scorpodie fervently. Even if they might be wrong for each other. Even if their relationship is broken. I can't help it.
Now I'm very intrigued about Albus's emergence in the story. What's he going to add to the mix? LOVE AFFAIR WITH ELODIE? Maybe he's a vigilante and he kidnapped and killed Draco? Maybe he's going to uncover an enormous Ministry plot to kill all the former Death Eaters? Maybe Scorpius is a psycho and he's going to kill poor Albus?
SO MANY THEORIES.
I like Albus's character, and how he seems invisible next to him attention-seeking siblings. I especially adore that the only person he seemed to identify with in his family was Arthur (much love for Arthur ♥ ), and now Arthur is dead and Albus is feeling kind of lonely. He's one of those people who doesn't seem to need others to rely on for company - he's satisfied with reading books. And I like that he has this small aura of arrogance about him - his distaste for Lily and James, for the Ministry car tradition, for everyone shouting and for everyone else around him in general - in a small way, he seems to think himself superior to them. From the sound of things, he might have good reason to. I love him already.
I can't wait to see where this goes.
I wub your skillz. Give dem 2 me rite now.
Author's Response: SAZ U BAK. YAY. WUB OOO.
Scorpodie! Again! Elpius, Scordie, Elopius, surely. Just reminds me of peas and that. :D Yes, their relationship is broken, yes, it's in tattahz, but that doesn't mean it can't be fixed. They were very much in love before the whole rejected proposal thing, so it's all very complicated. Keep reading and you'll find out more things that complicate it even further.
ALBUS! I WUB HIM! He's my favourite to write, I think. He's so still and observant and a little stalkerish. He's the most subdued, but the most interesting, I feel. All those things are a possibility, obviously, especially the vigilant one and the Ministry plot one. No one knows why he was picked as a Slytherin in the first place... ?? CONTROVERSY!
His siblings are very... annoying (searches for 12+ word that is appropriate). They're spoilt, they're petulant, they're pretty disgusting. Lily is your classic princess - pampered and babied, and James is more cool and cocky and very irritating. He can't relate to his parents because they don't know anything is wrong. His siblings bully him. He has no friends. His loneliness and isolation (which make him fun to write, no matter how much pity I feel for him) was definitely secured when Arthur died. His only connection to the Weasley/Potter fam was with Arthur - the reason he went back for holidays, why he went to dinners and gatherings, why didn't run away. Arthur's books are now all he has left of him. It's sad and weepy.
That's a good idea - I wasn't going for it, but now you've mentioned it, it really works. He thinks himself superior, but not overly so, not so much that he would tell people or judge people. He can't do that to anyone, mainly because he doesn't know anyone, but because he doesn't have the voice and they could judge for so many things in return.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for your lovely review. You're awzum and all that. ♥
