OHMYGODOHMYGODOHMYGOD!!! What a super-fantastic chapter, and dedicated to moi?? Serious love for you right now, haha (in a non-creepy way, promise xD) And, to show you just how happy this update has made me, here is a very long list of my favourite parts (seriously long. I may as well have copied and pasted the whole chapter :P)!!
'We tended to refer to it as his evil lair, where he plotted ways in which to torture us and passed them off as "Quidditch plays".'
I loved the whole description of Oliver's office, it seems so fitting and so Oliver :D
'"And to think I wanted to make up an excuse about my lady problems so I wouldn't have to help you."
He groaned and shot me a look. Whining, he said, "I hate it when you do that! I never know what to say!"'
"Er, so, Luce, I was just, uh, I was just wondering if maybe, um-" he gulped and shut his eyes for a brief moment, as if hoping to be put out of his self-inflicted misery, and I just looked on quizzically "-maybe you want to, you know, if you'd like to, er, maybe we could, um-" Please tell me this is Oliver asking Lucie out in the most adorably nervous way possible?? Please?
"No, not you! I don't even know you!"
'"Fine then, how about Olliekins?" I teased.
He cocked an eyebrow. "Would you like me to start referring to you as Gertrude?"'
'And as I kissed him again, and again, and again, I knew in that moment that I wouldn't want to be with anyone else.' AWWW!!
Gah, you make it so hard to decide if I want Lucie to get with Percy (properly, I mean) or Oliver - I love them both!!! xD Cannot wait for more!!!
Author's Response: I just finished writing the next chapter and oh my gosh I feel like I betrayed you you're going to absolutely hate me.
What? Giving something away? I'm doing no such thing.
Thanks for the lovely, lovely review!
