So, like you said, Oliver-lovers really should stick together, and I finally read your story two days ago, only to be greeted with a new chapter today, hooray!
Ah, Oliver. I can't believe he pretended to be Krum, of all people - in my opinion, even Bagman would have made more sense, though I have no idea why.
Edie is amazing. She's blunt and snappy and kind (ish) at the same time, and so much fun to read. I love the way she talks about Lisa at the end of this chapter, it made me crack up. I am hoping to see a softer side to her though?
And I can not believe she would do that. Well, okay, I can actually, and if she does I'm sure I'll love it because I'm evil, but she wouldn't, would she?
In any case, consider yourself warned: I'm here and I'm sticking to this.
Author's Response: Ermagerrrd I was really hoping you'd stalk my stories back! I seriously think that an Oliver/OC obsession club is in order XD
Though I'm not sure how deeply I'll go into explaining it in the story, I think he pretended to be Krum because he started off the night by making fun of his accent, and it just progressed from there as the drinks kept coming. By the time he got to Edie's bar he was so smashed that he found his impersonation particularly ingenious. ;)
Edie is kind of a jerk, isn't she? XD I've based her a lot off of my best friend who's really loyal and opinionated, but has kind of grown bitter due to the hand that fate's given her lately, between her internship, her relationship with her Mum (which I expand on in chapter eight), her pathetic love-life, being broke and such. She's just in a really rough spot and kind of disgusted with the world. But she's going to do a lot of growing in this story--I actually already noticed a huge difference in her character between chapter one and chapter nine, which I just finished.
Wait, can't believe that she'd do what? Take advantage of Wood being drunk and get all the good gossip out of him? Oh, I'm totally sure she would ;)
Thank you so very much for reading and reviewing! I'm anxiously awaiting the next chapter of Willows and Wood!
