Okay. This is the review I owe you for all the wonderful ones you left me, and I will try to keep this coherent.
I'm really conflicted with this chapter: Edie getting sacked makes me want to cry, because those Murray people are idiots, and I'm also really, really annoyed with Rose right now.
But I also feel like laughing. Poor girl, you give her such horribly awkward situations to deal with! Her comments make me laugh even more -- House Elf in a sock, come on, that image had me on the floor :)
And she gets these fake ideas about Oliver, haha. Just so you know though, I'm still expecting Super Oliver to clear up the mess with the press (I'm on a completely accidental rhyming spree).
I AM SO EAGER TO READ THE CHAPTER AT THE RESTAURANT -- but please, please, please, Sarah, make Rose embarass herself for once, not Edie. Or Rose doesn't turn up at all and Edie and Oliver end up eating fish and chips in the street while in really fancy clothes. PLEASE?
And also, I have to tell you how much I love your Oliver Wood, stupid brown eyes and train of thought included.
You killed me with his thought process, you really did.
Ediver shipper, me? Nah, of course not.
Lies, all lies. I &hearts Ediver.
Author's Response: Hellooo!!!
Isn't Rose just the worst? I actually got so worked up over something that she does in a later chapter that when I went to work after writing it, I was really mad at the girl I base her off of for no reason! (In reality, this girl is nowhere NEAR as horrible as Rose.) But I still had to remind myself that this girl isn't actually a writer for WW who screws over my dear friend Edie. hehe.
You are totally right for laughing, though! When the plunnies for this story started popping up, I made a conscious decision to make her bad luck humorous. I think if she was genuinely upset all the time, it would be a totally different tone of story. And Edie just wouldn't be Edie! As you can see from this chapter, she rarely even cries. :3
Yeah, her view of Oliver is a bit skewed right now. Wait--Edie being headstrong and stubborn and not stopping to think before forming a bad opinion of somebody? What?! :P
Oooh, you actually just gave me a little idea for the next interview... thanks! And I'm glad to hear that you're an Ediver (Olie?) shipper... I ship Kiwiver too ♥
Thank you so much!
