... I'm supposed to be doing my homework.
But chapter 9 was so awesome, i've found that yes, I regret nothing.
James is too awesome for mere words. End off. I like his theory about Dumbledore and McGonagall having an ilicit affair- I won't lie, I once thought that too. But Selene is right here. Dumbledore is gay. James' conspiracy theory is all wrong.
When you said you'd mention Oedipus Complex, I reseached it on Wikipedia. I'm slightly amazed by Selene's medical intelligence. Does she intend to be a Healer? I hope she is a child specialist- then all the children would be more scared of her glares than the injections.
James and Louis' conversation- Ermahgawd! It's 11 at night, i'm not supposed to laugh out so loud. But honestly, that has to be the awkardest and funniest conversation i've ever read. Kudos!
My favourite part has to be when Louis asked how was it, and James said, "It was… well, frankly it was pretty awkward, but it was good. I, er, enjoyed myself –“ Really? Enjoyed myself? Why do I talk? “It was satisfactory –“ Wow, I’m smooth. “Overall a pleasant, though odd, experience.” I burst a lung laughing. You, Laura, are amazing.
You also answered a question I left you on your blog, I greater detail. I asked how James 'deals with' Selene. I must say that his answer reveals the depths and dynamics of their friendship. But still, i'd really like to see Sel's better parts and her growth as a character.
Hoping for a quick chapter 10!
The one and only,
PS. The cannibalism jokes! They remind me of that chapter in Finding Faith when Fsith talked about who she would/wouldn't eat! Happy memories.
Author's Response: Akansha. Do your homeword. Do it. I command you.
But thank you anyways :)
I put the whole Dumbledore/McGonagall thing in there because I totally thought they was something going on between them when I first read the books. But that clearly wasn't true. I'm glad I wasn't the only one!
Ooh, you learned something! Yay! Selene doesn't really have the temperament for being a Healer. That seems like a job that would require patience, something she's very short on :) She just knows about it because she likes to read a lot. More on that later :)
I was giggling the whole time during that conversation. James is so awkward and I love him so much. It's just so fun to write as him and I feel like I'm really pushing my creativity.
Yes I did! I actually added that part in after you asked me that question. James is very protective over Selene and sticks up for her adamently because he knows her so well, and he knows about her past and her parents. I do realize that I haven't expanded into Selene's depth as a character yet, but trust me it will come!
Updates will come when they can - I won't make any promises, but I do have it started! Inventing Imperfection will be updated first, and then we'll see!
P.S. Haha, my friends and I make cannibal jokes all the time, so I can't help but add it in. One of my favorite hypothetical questions to ask is who people would eat first if we were to resort to cannibalism.
