Okay so first, I'll just let you know my thoughts upon starting this chapter:
"Wait- an author's note.
And it all won't from there.
I was so not expecting this, never in the world! You are so original, I'm really loving this story ♥
I loved how you changed the writing like that, the person used and just style overall, going from softly fancy to casually sweet. You still kept those lovely descriptions and the actual action flowed well admidst her thoughts (whih can go into much rambling with 1st person pretty easily, an given her character...).
And I still love your characterisations. You'd actually be surprised that I've thought of it, Scorp having a squib sibling, because it's just perfect for the pureblood to change!
And it must be so hard for poor Alphard, I now see where Ignotus' characterization comes from!
Is it just me or are we revieweres sort of him and are you sort of asking us to be brutal and bathe you in CC? I'm sure not because there's no way we could be blunt with this story ;)
I really like rambling Val, and all her writing habits, it's quite easy to relate to *cough*not to mention I'm named like her*cough* :P
I have to admit, the first thig that came to my mind when he asked her to stand up was, "OMG, is he proposing or something?"
Then reality hit me and I realize there was Jenny. Was?
Anyway, I'm so intrigued, who is this Jenny and why I Val (lol that feels weird) writing this to Alphard?
Gah, please please update sooner, I love all your characters from both timeframe and want to meet more! And know what's going on!
Pretty pwease? :3
_val (yep, still feels weird)
Author's Response: Hey Val! Honestly, I teared up in joy when I first got your review, and until now, I'm not really sure how to respond to your kind compliments! But I shall try! :)
I'm very relieved to hear that Valeria didn't ramble much. First person makes me worry about such things constantly! And I find the coincidence of the names' similarity very entertaining! So I'm glad you like her! I suppose no one wants to read about a mean character that has the same name!
And don't great minds think alike, now don't they? I suppose that's case here. When I first thought of this, I kept wondering if it's plausible at all, and once I felt that it is, even if just mildly, I was too attached to the plot to forgo it.
I hope you're enjoying the suspense, even if it's minimal. I'm trying to work with gradualism here and I'm just hoping that my withholding information doesn't confuse you guys.
I also hope I'll be able to update soon and I really do appreciate the enthusiasm! It really does encourage me to remain committed to this story!
Thanks again for the lovely review!
