|Review:||800 words of heaven says:|
Am I back to review chapter 4? Yes, I am! Am I going to review my way through this story? Probably.
I, for one, like shorter chapters, because they're easier to read quickly and you feel less guilty about it when you do it to take a break from something (just one more chapter, I promise myself, as I click the next chapter button for the twelfth time in two hours). But anyways, onto my review!
Can I just say that I love the little details you put into your story. You either live in England, have been to England, or do an insane amount of research concerning your setting, because naming things like Charing Cross Road and St Ives being next to the coast are really nice! I haven't been to England, ever, so I don't actually know much about the places, except from what I learn from Horrible Histories, BBC, and Monoply! Aside from that, the other details you include are lovely, too, such as the name of the second-hand bookstore's shop owner, or which part of Wuthering Heights Thalia's up to. I think it adds a very realistic touch to everything!
So this chapter was filler-y (but I like fillers!), where I felt you were just trying to set the scene up a bit more, and give us a better understanding of Thalia, and how her mind works. I liked the little cameo appearance from Remus - I think it's nice that there's one Marauder that she feels comfortable talking to, and I think that's pretty realistic. The prank was a nice touch, too - just an ordinary day at Hogwarts!
Ooh! Potential romance development at the end there! I'm pretty excited! I love that Sirius is a closet bookworm - and a closet muggle bookworm at that - it makes him so much more adorable!
A nice chapter - looking forward to some more!
Author's Response: Hi again!
And feel free to review your way through, I love that :D Wah yeah I prefer shorten chapters than this, but it's just so hard to find the right place to cut it, and I don't want to end up with a story with +100 chapters!
Nope I live in England, I don't think I could bother with all of that research, so I'm glad that you liked it ;D I didn't realise that people outside of the UK watch Horrible Histories, I'm far too old to watch it, but I still love it!
Yes the bit about Wuthering Heights is purely there, because I was up to that bit myself, so I was wondering as well, so I'm glad that you liked those little details:)
Yeah I did have a few filler chapters in a row, but it gets there's about 4 exciting chapters after this one, so hey it balances out in the end :D
Yeah an awful lot of Marauder fics miss out them doing pranks, so I had to include them, as they're such a key part of the books!
Yes Sirius needs some cute traits, he's not all bad, so I thought hey why not make him a bookworm!
Thank you for the review, it was lovely :')
