Are you trying to kill me? I went through a whole box of chocolates just to be able to handle this emotionally! Oh the feels!
Such a long chapter! I don't know where to begin!
Lily. I loved her inner monologue in the shower. You do know what showers are for, right? 35 minutes of philosophical analysis on the meaning of life and 15 minutes to wash hair/body. They're so cute with their shared room and kitten and playing house.
Vernon was as every bit unpleasant and full of himself as we remember him from the books and Petunia is such a poor excuse for a sister I can't even begin to explain. For God's sake woman, it's your sister, not your old desk mate from pre-school!
Anyway, James was such a perfect gentleman and even his comeback at Vernon was full of class. Great!
Now, as entertaining as Lily and James' dinner date was, it was nothing compared to the adventures of Sirius and Belle in the land of crazy French people! Look at you, you managed to keep the French to one sentence.
Sirius was amazing in this. You could see his rebel side in his actions, but also his controled upbringing. A lesser man would've moped the floor with those poor excuses for parents!
It was such a rollercoaster of emotions, with the room and the ex boyfriend, and Sirius got in a fight and Belle got in a fight and gah! I couldn't have imagined a better trip to France for that pair. Just imagine if they had to sit through dinner. Somebody would've received a fork to the eye. Courtesy of Sirius of course.
I loved the idea that Alice was the master mind behind the love life of Miss Belle and that she controls the results of her actions by taking her own actions. It's funny to me, because in my mind, young Alice is a petite woman and looks kinda like the actress that plays Alice in the "Twilight" movies. I'm sure you imagine her differently, so do share. If you had CIs of them I don't remember. I forget in my old age!
And the end of this chapter! I have waited for this for so long I squealed like he had kissed me! I'm too attached to your characters!
I actually enjoyed the lenght. But really, 9 words? How'd you manage that? You could write all your chapters at this lenght, I'll read and review! No? Okay...
Anyway, my diet is history, but I hope things go well with Sirius and Belle from now on! This was amazing! Really, one of your best chapters yet! And we're at 21 already! Where has time gone? Okay, I need to stop typing now! Good job, darling!
Author's Response: Ral now I want chocolate SO bad! Haha!
Hahah that's pretty much how my showers go. Lily' too, apparently :P. I loved the little playing house cuteness too. I remember how fun it was the first time Ben and I stayed in a hotel together when it feels like your so grown up, so I sorta wanted to give that vibe off.
Hahah wasn't my French sneakiness the best? I know it's probably unrealistic, but it seemed like the only way to make it work :P
Sirius and Belle definitely stole the show in this, though. I was worried that the trip to France would disappoint, so I'm sooo insanely happy that you liked it ♥
And yes! They kissed they kissed! Not the romantic should I or shouldn't I Lily and James kind of kiss, but a total Sirius wants it and goes for it kind of kiss. Hehe.
I don't even know how this chapter got so long. I was at 2,000 words on Thursday, terrified that I wouldn't finish, then 9,000 by Friday afternoon :P My characters took over my mind haha!!
Thank you so much Ral for all your awesome reviews. And I hope you don't hate me too much for next chapter...
