Dude. And I never call people dude--ANNIE YOU'RE HAVING NEGATIVE EFFECTS ON ME--why has nobody ever used seb as scorp-o before? HE'S PERFECT FOR YOUR SCORP. cashmere jumpers lol.
also, can i just say that joella sounds like me? oh, no, world, don't pay attention to me, i'm just going to sit here and creep on people if that's okay. and really even if it's not okay because that's just what i do.
Scorpius, who, instead of trying to transfigure their tortoise, had named it Walter and decided to adopt it. MARRY ME SCORPIUS. EXCEPT...YOU KNOW. i'll just watch him marry someone else from a strikingly close position, like possibly by his side at the altar.
joella is so HUMAN. like. she's wise enough to know that nobody knows what they really want and she's seen it all end in heartbreak but she's sort of hoping things will work out anyways because she likes her friend and THANK MERLIN THAT ALBUS IS NOT A HORRIBLE HUMAN BEING. too much of that. not enough nice/not-mean albus, especially not enough now that i've seen how well they can be written. i mean, you really feel like he's a nice kid from that description you give of him and you're like BUT NO, YOU AND DELILAH ARE DESTINED FOR EACH OTHER. WHY CAN'T YOU UNDERSTAND THAT. DON'T GO FOR THE MEAN GIRL SHE'LL ONLY BREAK YOUR HEART--UNTILL YOU FIND OUT THAT ACTUALLY SHE IS VERY NICE BUT IS JUST A TORTURED SOUL WITH A SHADY PAST. AND POSSIBLY AN ILLOGICAL HATRED OF BACON IN WHICH CASE YOU WOULD HAVE NEVER WORKED OUT ANYWAYS. BUT YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT? I BET I KNOW WHO LOVES BACON AND HER NAME IS DELILAH. BET YOU DIDN'T SEE THAT COMING ALBUS, DID YA, DID YA?
love that slytherin's name is ambrosia. LOL FOREVER~
BUT THEN AT THE END YOU'RE LIKE BOOO STUPID ALBUS YOU'RE BELITTLING YOUR SOULMATE HOW DO YOU THINK SHE'S GOING TO FEEL ABOUT THAT IN FIFTY YEARS, HM? YOU'RE MAKING A HUGE MISTAKE, YOU'RE NEVER GOING TO LIVE THIS DOWN, SHE'S GOING TO MAKE YOU FIX THE DISHWASHER INSTEAD OF CALLING THE REPAIRMAN AND YOU'RE SETTING YOURSELF UP FOR IT RIGHT THIS MINUTE.
She was always practical like that. I'm kind of obsessed with this phrasing. You get the feeling it's just not...true. Like, she can be practical in other matters but you just can't---nobody can---dealing with things like this. Attraction. Doesn't work that way. And you say it all in this sentence. HOW DO YOU DO THIS ANNAY. HOW DOES ONE BECOME A SYNTACTICAL GENIUS.
She wondered if it was wrong to treat other peopleís lives like books open to be read, when the writing of it looked so horribly and inevitably painful.
That's so nice I can't even say anything about it that doesn't mar its inherent value. So I'm just going to stare at it and be jealous of your skill.
Author's Response: I think this might possibly be my favorite review that I've ever gotten Loly. I don't really even know what to say to most of it except endless (h)(h)(h)(h)
SEB /IS/ THIS SCORPIUS. Seriously, every time I see a picture of him, this character is written on his flawless face. LOL I wonder how many other people have picked up on that part of his character? I think most people seem to think that he is just protective of Albus. BUT IS HE REALLY. I am inclined to say that he is most protective of his tortoise, Walter.
I really just wanted Albus to be a normal dude. I mean, he has an obsession with an Ice Queen that will never like him back and is taller than him btw, but these things change. Albus does love bacon... I wonder if Delilah does too? Must investigate her feelings on bacon...
I have no idea why, but Ambrosia has always just been one of those stock magical names I have kept in my head. All the names in this story have a little tinge of weirdness. Like, slightly outside the norm. Idk, maybe only I notice it haha.
IT WAS A TOTAL ACCIDENT IF YOU MUST KNOW DEAR. I ADORE YOU THOUGH.
I was always very proud if that sentence though, because it seemed very Joella to think of things in those terms. Silly girl.
Seriously one of the most wonderful reviews I've ever gotten. Thank you so much!
