Hi Gabbie! Just a heads up, but there will probably be an absurd amount of me typing in all caps for this review...
OH MY GOODNESS. FINALLY. YES THEY FINALLY KISSED AND IT WAS SO SWEET. I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS FOR SO. LONG. THANK YOU FOR FINALLY MAKING IT HAPPEN!
So, Astoria's confessions to Blaise. You wrote that whole scene beautifully, and I loved how she wanted to talk to him and tell him everything, even if he couldn't talk back. She wants to own up to what she did, and what she's going to do, and I really respect her for that!
And then when he woke up and they were SO CUTE TOGETHER. BLAISE AND ASTORIA JUST MAKE MY HEART SMILE. You can tell how much they care about each other from the way you write them together, even if Astoria is convinced that he has another girl in mind. I'm not convinced, but I ship them like nobody's business so I think that's self-explanatory :) BUT THEY KISSED AND IT WAS AMAZING. But they're both still so weak and hurting, and I want them to be able to heal and be together and be happy!
Also, Astoria's mother was really harsh! She's a little scary! Like the way she was practically dragging her daughter away from Blaise, and how Stori heard her yelling at Emily. But I have a bad feeling that she's nothing compared to her husband!
AND DRACO AND THE END OF THE CHAPTER OH MY ROWLING. He just gives me chills because he's so creepy but it's awesome! You write him so, so incredibly, and I think it's because you give him this air of subtlety and mysteriousness. You're never exactly sure of what he'll do next, and I love that! It also makes me a little nervous, but I still love it.
GABBIE THERE WERE JUST SO MANY FEELS WITH THIS CHAPTER. I ACTUALLY READ IT YESTERDAY AND HAD TO WAIT TO REVIEW SO I COULD GET MY THOUGHTS TOGETHER. IT WAS AMAZING AND INTENSE AND BEAUTIFUL AND JUST PHENOMENAL OVERALL. This story is absolutely fantastic and I just adore it! (AND BLAISE AND ASTORIA AND DRACO)
ASOS is next for me, so I'll keep you in the loop about when that will be up! See you on the forums! 10/10
Author's Response: Hello!
*Blushes wildly* Oh, goodness, how do I leave a decent response for this? I thought the review you left me for "Loyalty" was blush-worthy but this one tops it! Gosh, I don't even know what to say! D':
I had to put that kiss in there, it was about ready to kill me from waiting this long to do it but it worked out better than I thought. I was so concerned that I didn't accomplish what I'd wanted but I know you must have fangirled all over the place just like I did! :D Whoo, I sort of had you in mind when I wrote that scene because I knew hwo much you'd been waiting on it. Not merely because I was thinking of snogging you of course. ;)
I thought that Astoria talking to Blaise really just set up this entire chapter. She wants so badly to do the right thing while doing what she has to do and the opening scene had been in my head for a few days before I wrote it down. :D
I hope that you respect her decisions later on for what she has to do! It shall not be pleasant.
Blaise and Astoria forever! Hahaha. I love writing them together, they seem to play on one another so well that their banter and interactions are just wonderful to write. At least when Blaise is being cooperative!
The other girl that she's worried about is something that might come up again but you'll just have to wait and see. :3
LOL! I wish I could make you a shirt with "Blastoria" on it. Does that sound good? Hahahah. Blastoria...hm.
After Blaise and Astoria rest up, they'll have to face that kiss and what it meant. Neither of them might do it, depending on how they are at the time. But.did I blush while writing it! OHMYGOD, I sort of sat there and went, "Come on, make it sound good! Make it romantic and angsty and stop spacing out and getting embarrassed!"
I can't write kissing scenes without blushing, I mean, so much for being an adult, right? :D
Yeah, Astoria's mother is really scary in her own way. She's nothing at all compared to her husband, who we all will deal with in the next chapter...but they compliment one another in a way that's just plain wrong.
Draco, dear Draco! I really liked that last part because it really gave me the chills too. I know what he's going to do but you all don't and it really makes me go, "What on earth have I DONE?" Hahahaha. He's actually hard to write, I'm not even going to lie about that! I fear him.
You read it yesterday and it took you today to get your thoughts together?! Oh, my goodness, its This is Angelina all over again!! The FEELS!!! *Swoons*
Hope you stick around for this in the future, I really love your reviews. They just make me all giggly and such, I turn all gooey and think I'm amazing for the rest of the day. :D
Ooh, ASOS! Would LOVE to see it soon! Ah, expect the Misfits again in a bit, Audrey and Percy have stuff to work out. :p
Hehe. See you on the forums!
