this is the last chapter you are permitting me to read ;A; creys.

I know I said this already but...I love the downtroddenness of this fic, how it's got like...fantastical mundanity, idk? like, taking time to describe small actions, small thoughts, astoria's new flat; it feels so real. I love the emphasis on thoughts and actions rather than just words. (when I said mundanity I didn't mean the writing, lol, because your writing is so nuanced and carefully thought out, I meant...the things you choose to write about. and I know 'mundanity' sounds like a bad word but I mean it in a good way and I couldn't think of a better synonym. it kind of reminds me of never let me go, how kathy spends the entire novel wrapped up in her own thoughts and memories and sometimes stops to tell us about the most inconsequential of things because, really, everything in life is important to us but inconsequential to others. I don't know what I'm saying but I'm going to stop)

It was nothing like she should have thought knowing him only from Hogwarts, where he had been silent, pressured by his premature responsibilities, sleepless, often grey-faced, pallid, withdrawn, dependent more than ever on his faithful sidekicks. Astoria had not paid him more attention than any other girl had done but that was still a lot, because everyone knew a half-story about him, and everybody knew that he was untouchable in that halfness. - hnng give me this characterisation forever

What had her hope been in? What had she staked her life on, to eventually have come to such a way of understanding life, and what could be love? What was she doing right and how could Astoria be like her? - also this. you must give me all the things and teach me your ways.

let me know when you've edited seven so I can pounce on it! ♥

Author's Response: i find it hilarious that i allowed you to read seven right after this so it looks like you got super impatient and disregarded my instructions haha. LET IT BE KNOWN THAT JULIAR BROKE NO RULES AND HATH NEVER BROKE NO RULEZ IN HER FRUITFUL LIFE. a tr00 arteeste is bound by no such restrictions.

fantastical mundanity, CAN THAT BE A GENRE PLZ. i will write all the things for it!! to me a fic needs to find its base in individual moments which sometimes is not too fun to write because well tea is not as exciting as acromantulas i'm sorry to have to say, though i guess it depends on perspective after all. anyway with this fic in particular i needed them to be people and some people just take showers and comb their hair and have eggs on toast. and that is life. and it is good and sad and full of desperation and grace. everything in our own lives is important to us and i think the real beauty of literature is that it can transliterate someone's own value system--a character's, i mean--to a reader's value system.

half-stories. i still feel a vague sort of pride in myself for that one haha.

YEAH THAT LOOKS A BIT SAPPY THOUGH DOESN'T IT? what would a story be without a bit of sap, though? i think life is stuck together with sap. yeah, i said it.

you're way ahead of me on this so i'm just going to go answer your next review now ;)
