I'v tried to hold off reviewing this until your next chapter is up but I just can't anymore.

I feel like I'm reading an actual story. To be totally honest I barely remeber they are wizards or part of harry potter half the time. Which is supposed to be a huge compliment because I still care about them so much. I care about the characters because you've created them that way, not because they belong to Harry potter. This is a story you could tweak a bit and it would be an OF. Okay, onto my thoughts on this actual chapter.

The way you eased Rose from her own self confidence and brought in the what if's. What if she is just a means to scratch an itch for Krum... The way she goes from knowing that's not the case to wondering if it is was done beautifully.

Agh and I want to hate the first Mrs. Krum so bad because Rose doesn't need to hear about the fire then ice... But I also love her for her perceptive nature and because she just seems like a BA. And I guess maybe it is good that Rose heard it from someone. How would Viktor react? If he knew about the interview would he understand because of the book (for some reason I think not) or will he be irate about the pow wow? Or will it not matter and he'll never even find out?

I loved that in the end Rose still made the decision to let him come in. The section where I can nearly feel her falling asleep with her clothes on and her heart too heavy was probably one of t favorites.

Okay, I am *patiently* waiting to see what happens and will try and resist talking you into pm'ing me just tiny bits of the next chapter. For another few hours, at least ;)

If I was in a book store and I picked this up and started reading it, I would buy it. And stay up all night finishing it. That's pretty much the best compliment I can give, haha.

Author's Response: First, thank you again for reviewing! Without you, my last two chapters would have big old goose eggs next to them! Second, thank you for commenting on how you care about the characters outside of the HP world. I didn't mean for this to sort of veer off into OF quite so much (and it may feel more part of the universe once I finally bring in Ron and Hermione), but the fact that you think the story stands up on its own is about the best thing anyone could say. For the last year or so, I've been toying with the idea of writing something I could send off to try and get published. I don't think my skill level is quite there yet but you're words give me hope I'm headed in the right direction.

To the chapter itself, I almost didn't put that little speed bump of self-doubt in, but in the end I couldn't resist. I think we've all been there to some extent in a new relationship, and knowing his reputation, it felt like it would just *have* to cross her mind. Introducing both ex-wives has been in the plan since chapter two. I'm glad you have mixed feelings about Liddy. That's exactly what I wanted. She's so open, she's hard to hate, and yet she has this thing for rich husbands -- and has an intimacy with Krum Rose hasn't matched yet. I enjoyed adding her dynamic to the story. I can't wait to hear what you think when you meet the second Mrs. Krum!

You are welcome to hit me up for hints anytime. It's the least I can do. I usually have about two chapters planned out in advanced, though I always end up surprising myself with something :)
