Hey A_Wiz! Here with a holiday review for you :)

So yes, there was a lot of cursing in this chapter, but at least it was comical! Haha. I like how Heart's penchant for foul language and tendency to throw his weight around made Rose look rather meek by comparison (and poor Haverdash). I also liked getting a little insight into Rose's job and the publishing world--I can imagine conversations like this circulating around Twilight and Fifty Shades of Grey. I kind of want to meet this Regina McFey, just so I can see if she's half as ridiculous as Heart makes her out to be.

I guess I didn't enjoy this chapter as much as the first one, though, because I sort of expected it to culminate in something like Rose (or someone else) suggesting Krum for a possible next novel. I think Haverdash would have been useful in that regard, though his background meekness was definitely comical here. I would imagine that you're trying to take things slow and build up the plot little by little, which is probably the right thing to do. Maybe the pace here was a bit too slow for me.

Anyway, I'm glad I came back, and I would imagine that I'll be back again sometime soon :)

Author's Response: Thanks, Amanda. I'm actually a little surprised (though very pleased) that you decided to review another chapter. Looking back, the first few chapters of this story are pretty in your face, what with the ship and then all the *ahem* colorful language. I feel like I just want to tell people, please, I promise. It isn't as bizarre as it first seems.

I'm sorry the pacing didn't gel so well for you here. This story is a pretty slow burn. Rose and Krum don't actually meet until the end of chapter five, and don't officially become an item until chapter ten. I wanted to try and establish Rose as a character first, to ease into the pairing a bit. Heart does end up suggesting the idea of a book about Krum to Rose...only inot until the end of the next chapter.

Lol, yeah, I took a pretty hard jab at Fifty Shades here. I wrote this during the summer when it was all anyone seemed to be talking about. Regina actually has a real role to play in the story, though it's a long way down the road.

Thanks again for the review. I always appreciate hearing not only what people like, but also what they don't :)
