Hey, there, its Gabbie with your requested review and pleasure to meet you and all that jazz. So this is very interesting! I've never read anything quite like this before, and certainly not with a witch being able to see ghosts. I suppose not many people wanted to touch on that since at Hogwarts, there were dead people everywhere. :D
But Ellie is different from that and the way you have it written is very nice, its not so dark, so much as sort of funny. I liked the beginning with her great-grandmother too, and am thankful that you didn't have her screaming and running away. She seems pretty determined for a kid!
As sad as it was, I thought your opening with her and Chris at seventeen was a little touching. They seem very close and I enjoyed reading about them and I have my worries for their Dad. I hope you play around with that a bit more, he seemed really out of it. :( Can't blame him though.
But anyway, Albus! Whoa, what a change he is! I have never read a cocky, sexy Albus before and I must say that I enjoyed it. It was very unique I think and his banter with Ellie was hilarious and Scorpius Malfoy is in this too? I do love me some Malfoy men. :3 Hope to see him soon! ;)
But I LOVED what you did with Rose. She seems like a normal teen, not so much high strung and its great that she's different from her mother when it comes to fortune telling, something Hermione couldn't stand. Hahahaha.
I thought with the fortune tellling with Ellie was well-done, a little creepy and weird. I mean, I sense some good foreshadowing going on and I really loved how you wrote it. :D
So, I didn't spot any major CC's! I loved this and I think Ellie and this world you've given her are great.
Much love and thanks for the read!
Author's Response: Hello! And I assure you, the pleasure is all mine!
It's pretty exciting to know that you find my story a little unique - especially considering the love/hate dynamic I set up already!
I aimed to make Ellie (and by extension, this story) sort of funny - I don't particularly enjoy writing angst, because I'm so bad at it, and it makes me feel horrible, so I want to keep it light, but have some action and adventure as well!
The scene with Ellie and Chris was really difficult to write, actually (ergo, it was so short), so I'm glad that you found it to your liking! I, too, worry for their dad, so of course I have some ideas for him!
I'm sure you've read a sexy Albus before. There are a lot of sexy Albuses out there! But yeah, it didn't make sense to me that he'd be this total nice and sensitive guy - you just couldn't if you hung around James that much! Also, like James, Albus too, has Marauder blood running through his veins! And who doesn't love some Malfoy men action?
I really tried to make Rose as normal as possible. I didn't want another Hermione - with Ron's genes thrown into the mix, it just wasn't possible!
The fortune telling scene was supposed to be a little creepy and weird - because fortune telling is a little creepy and weird, at least, in my opinion, so I'm really glad that you liked it!
Thank you for the lovely review!
