Finally. Finally, finally, finally! Where on earth have you been Madame P?! I've been waiting on this update for what has felt like ages. I mean, I thought for a moment that you had sadly abandoned it but what a nice surprise! :D
So, we're back to Bill. I was waiting on seeing his side of things and I'm glad that you were able to explain what was obviously misunderstandings on his family's part. Though, I do think that he's a little too besotted to understand how his family sees Fleur, I was glad that he stuck by her. The beginning of this held so much more information than I expected but I really enjoyed getting back into the story after so long. I loved that Bill and Fleur have such a great connection for one another and that he truly cares about her more than he has any other girl. :D Still, they are a rather odd couple but I think they balance each other out a bit, Fleur isn't as self-centered as she seems. I think that made me like their relationship all the more. :D
And, oh, poor Bill. He tried. He really, really tried. From the burnt chicken, to the lumpy potatoes, I could practically feel the unease at the dinner table. I'm glad that his father was the one who was giving him the most support though, I really am. And Charlie too.
Sad about that little line about Percy, but, considering that he was being a major prat during this time, I can't blame Bill.
But that dinner discussion didn't go over well and I felt really badly for Fleur. The entire talk about where they were having the wedding must have really hurt her, especially with Molly's reaction! Argh, I just wanted to pat her on the back, I felt really badly for her and annoyed with Ginny, I thought her teasing was a little uncalled for. :p
I'm not sure how this is going to work itself out but I'm waiting on it! :D
You may or may not have known but my laptop died not too long ago but its fixed now! Fixed, I say! My Percy/Audrey is back and running and my story about George has fresh chapters! Oh, and I don't know if you wanted, but my Roxanne Weasley/OC has another few chapters too. :D
So, we've got some catching up to do!
Its so great coming back to this story and thanks for the great read! :D
Author's Response: It really has been far too long, hasn't it? I actually started this chapter way back in September, then before I knew it, we were in October, then somehow we got to January without an update! Don't worry though, I have lots of renewed ideas, so I will be updating as much as I can over the next few weeks!
But back to this chapter. Well, I felt like I really had to include a little background info at the start, because it really has been so long and it was as much for myself as anyone else if I'm being totally honest!! I always find it easier writing Bill for some reason, and I was very keen to let his POV on the matter to be heard! He really is head over heels in love for Fleur, and I think that it clouded his judgement a bit but still, Ginny is being very annoying. I'm hoping she'll redeem herself in the next couple of chapters!
I'm glad you caught the little throwaway comment about Percy. It physically pained me to describe my beloved in such a way, but it was Bill's way of thinking, definitely not mine! Arthur is a complete dear though, and so is Charlie, so I'm glad that's coming across!
The next chapter will be up as soon as possible (that's a promise) and I'm hoping that this will be me back to normal on the site now! I'm off now to get caught up with Audrey, and George!!
