I still love this story...such perfect pacing, such interesting characters. I'm a happy girl :)

Ok, so there was one thing about this chapter that bugged me, like really bugged me - more than it would bug a normal person. It was the thing that Matt said about his parents being obsessed with fish and chips when they moved from Australia. I'm assuming you're not Australian, because I am and I can tell you that no Australian would be fascinated by fish and chips because they're just as big a part of our diet and culture as our British anscestors. We all grow up eating fish and chips and seriously, there are at least four fish and chip shops within walking distance of my house! Every pub sells it, most restaurants have it (well not the fancy ones but you know what i mean) and it is so normal to us that I can't imagine an Australian reacting the way Matt's parents did.

Like I said...such a stupid thing to get hung up on, but for some reason it really bugged me. So...yeah, sorry 'bout that!

Otherwise, I loved it. I love that Lily's dated such morons that when a guy is a gentleman she gets all confused; it's kind of endearing :) Oh and I loved the joke about scaring the 'you-know-what' out of Sir Thumbs. "Not literally, but with Sir Thumbs, you never know." funny :)

(Bonus point: correct usage of the word 'literally'. One of my pet peeves!)

Author's Response: Aww, I'm glad you're enjoying it so much!

You assume correctly that I am not Australian. I adore Australia and really want to visit, but sadly I haven't been able to yet. I'm surprised no other Australians pointed out the fish and chips thing before because I wrote about that in my fic about Matt's childhood. Thanks for letting me know, though! I'll edit that at some point.

I love creating all the idiots Lily has dated. It's so much fun! Sir Thumbs is a very hilarious cat to write about. Incorrect usage of the word "literally" is a pet peeve of mine, too! I mean, why change a word's meaning to its complete opposite? Thanks for reading and reviewing! :)
