THE KISS. MUST BE NOW. IT MUST. OR I WILL SPAM YOU. That last sentence is a lie, I won't. But they'd better fall into each other's arms today or I will be filled with sexual frustration until I read the sequel, yeah? ;) SEQUEL PLEASE!
"And if you must know, Fred once went missing for twelve hours after he put itching powder in our cousin Louis's underwear. Uncle George found him strapped to the underside of his bed with belts, taking a nap. Not just under the bed. Strapped to the bed./I've got to say, Fred's sort of a genius." Wowzers.
And once more, this chapter is getting a 10/10 for getting Percy's personality to a tee: "I don't think Uncle Percy taught his family how to make jokes./Or how to have fun./Or how to smile at all."
"He could either accept graciously and we could return to our tentatively amicable relationship of earlier. Or he could hex my nose and make it fall off." OR HE COULD FORGIVE, FOREGT AND PROPOSE. I like my option better, no 'ffence.
"A sort of clenched and panicked feeling sort of hammered on my spleen just then because that was a first, those thoughts. And I didn't know what to make of them." You know! I love you for this. I can feel a kiss coming on.that sounds weird. And it's not guilt, Rose, it's lurve ("there was a sort of nauseating thing mixed in that might have been guilt").
Ahahahaha:"Now I was distinctly feeling self-conscious, like I'd gotten a wad of spinach stuck in my front teeth and didn't know it, and he couldn't tear his eyes away." I like this, I like this very much. Maybe because I'm imagining Rose with Hermione-esque teeth before she resized them.
Another reason for the 10/10 rating: "Well...that seems a bit rude." I didn't have to stand here and listen to him blaspheme my family tree, despite that fact that - well, yes, we were a bit bonkers... More the type that would cause a cat to keep running headlong into a wall for no apparent reason." I don't understand how you do this, it's like you tap into my childish part of my mind and write down everything that would make me laugh. And you sound uncannily like Miranda Hart, whom I absolutely adore.
"I was still trying to come up with a good comment to follow this when he kissed me./Merlin, his lips were soft." AWO~ if you could see my face, you would understand the feelings I am feeling. I love you. I love this. This is bloody fantastic. I repeat my earlier offer: b m9?
Maybe it's all the happiness within me with their kissing an all, but this made me laugh too much~: "I've been wanting to do that for the longest time," he said, and something inside me sort of melted a bit. "It's a bit hard to work up the nerve, though, when youíre commenting on how much troll blood I've got in me."/I smiled sheepishly. "Well, you know. That's my way of attracting men, Scorpius Malfoy."
AND I'M FINISHED AND I AM SAD AND I WISH THAT I HAD FINISHED THIS EARLIER SO THAT I COULD HAVE SQUEE-ED EARLIER. AND THIS IS BRILLIANT. AND THERE BETTER BE A SEQUEL. AND I SHOULD TURN OFF CAPSLOCK BUT ALL MY FEELINGS ARE COMING OUT.
i love you.
Author's Response: I'm going to apologize. Again. Because these responses are really, really not doing your reviews justice and I have all sorts of feelings of guilt inside of me for trying to respond to them now, even though it's basically a lost cause. SO HERE GOES.
So, bottom line: YOU LIKED THE KISS YAYAYAYAYYY. ♥ ♥ ♥ I'm so glad!! I will be yours, ofc. -nods- Also, the Miranda Hart bit made me chuckle so much, because Annie actually introduced me to 'Miranda' and I freaking love that show and I think a bit of this at least was written while I was tripping along merrily through the episodes, so that's kind of uncanny.
THANK YOU SO, SO, SO MUCH FOR READING THIS AND REVIEWING IT AND BEING SO SUPPORTIVE AND /EVERYTHING/. Caps lock is a necessary part of an everyday life, you know. BUT SERIOUSLY, I HONESTLY CANNOT THANK YOU ENOUGH. ♥
