Marlene and Lenny are so funny together (and drunk) and I couldnt stop laughing! I loved this chapter, really, it was so good that it makes up for the fact she didnt show up...
Really though, I love Marlene, she is just the perfect bitchy, tough on the outside and really funny character. I hate how she got so hurt about Regulus, and I hate what they did to Lenny as well. I hope they didnt get Marlene as well, but I thought that she would wait for Lenny.
And my guess is that it is Sirius who helped her, but you might go against the typical cliche thing and make it her brother or Lily or one of the other Maruaders, or possibly Marlene. I guess I will just have to wait and see.
Poor Sirius, getting stood up, probably for the first time ever. I wonder how he will take it, if he will write to L.C again or just take the dent to his pride and leave it.
So many things I want to know!
I really, really hope the Slytherins get paid back for what they did to Lenny.
Anway, brilliant chapter as always, cant wait till the update!
I just wanted to say (as I usually spend time enthusing about the characters and what I want to happen) that you really have me hooked on this, and your writing is at a very high standard. I am one of those crazy grammar nazi people and little mistakes just put me off stories, or little bits that dont flow. When I read this though, I never have to stop and re-read a sentence or frown at bad punctuation- so you really deserve a big THANK YOU! I love the way you write, and thanks for making it really enjoyable to read, I love it! I know it's hard to keep the plot going and all, but you've been doing really good, and I guess I just thought you deserved a bit of praise as well as my usual rant.
The way you write is pure genius, simple but it grabs your attention, keeps the flow but is really funny. Good job, you are very talented.
Hope I gave you a good dose of the warm and fuzzies ;)
Author's Response: It took me forever to come up with a good response to this. I feel so warm every time I re-read this. I am so so so flattered. This kind of review is what makes me write more chapters. Seriously, it is. Knowing that someone actually enjoys my writing other than myself is what makes all of this worth while. I was actually going to write a one-shot with Marlene in it. She is a canon character, afterall. I'm still debating doing that, actually. When I find time, I suppose :P. Sirius will be...well, you'll see. I don't want to give it away or you might leave me! The Slytherins will get their payback...eventually. Karma is a beotch. I'm totally not a grammar nazi, so I'm super excited that I'm not doing horrible in that department!
Thank you so so so so so much or this review. I'm dead serious (sirius) when I say that I feel so flattered by it.
Next chapter will be in the queue friday for you :D.
