You and your random Potter family scenes just rock! :)
James is just so different...i've got so used to reading about too-cool-for-my-shoes, bad-attitude, arrogant, obnoxious The James Potter, that this all new personality you've created seems just like a breath of fresh spring air. Well done.
I love Ginny. She's every bit as awesome as I imagined. And Harry! Really, Harry freaking Potter indeed. I also thought much of Selene's and James conversation and James freakout. All in all, this chapter left me LOLing. :D
You've done a wonderful job. Though the story's idea is kinda old, your execution and extreme writing skills make it fresh and unpredictable. Not to mention the intensive work you've put into the characterization of every character, especially James (yes, I realise I praised it already, but I can't help it). This is an awesome story, and you've done a great job with it.
P.S. Selene WAS disappointed James, very disappointed. Just pick up on that fact and ask her out already.
P.P.S. I was reading Songbird again last night. Can I, once again, say that its the most freaking awetastic James/Lily story i've ever laid my eyes on? Reading it again allowed me to grasp the emotions better, and I now say that it can even surpass Saval's work (i kid you not). I love it like I love chocolate, books and my parents. The story is just so GODDAMN beautiful, it leaves me spechless. It's a classic, really. A story i'd definitely read to my daughter one day, as her bedtime story. She'll love the story of Princess Lily and Prince James, I can already tell.
Author's Response: I honestly don't know where they come from! My fingers just become possessed and then all of that pops out! But you know, I'd really like to think that they end up like that. Now that the world's happier and the pressure's off, I like to think Harry would have gotten much more whimsical.
Ginny is so much fun to write. I have plans for upcoming scenes with her that I'm just so excited to write! You have no idea.
You know, sometimes I really hate the obnoxious arrogant James that everyone seems to portray. I mean, yeah, I can somewhat see the rational behind it, but c'mon. He's the son of HARRY AND GINNY. I like to think he'd inherit Harry's awkwardness and Ginny's awesomeness to make a strange mixture of dorky and cool. But maybe that's just me.
P.S. Was Selene disappointed? Was she really? Perhaps it was just wishful thinking or an overactive imagination on James' part. Or maybe she really was disappointed because she's in love with James, too. I'll never say which one!
P.P.S. You shut your face. Shut it right now. You - I can't even - you are SO NICE TO ME. Better than Saval? Seriously? No. I refuse to believe this. Really? D'aw, you're just so sweet! Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you!
I kind of love you.
(But in a non-creepy way)
