GINA! Yay, another chapter!
Oh dear God, this was absolute gold dear :D I loved the awkwardness at the beginning, I mean, come on, it was Clemence and Albus having sex for the first time, it had to be as awkward as... :P I also loved how Clemence is starting to show that she cares, not that she'd outright admit it, but hey? It's progress ;)
I loved the scene in the Great Hall too! Team Dom and Team Rose fighting again, oh dear, when is their petty argument ever going to end? (I hope it doesn't anytime soon though, it's entertaining :P) I would have paid to have been there throwing sausage rolls. And the kiss between Clemence and Albus! With any other pair, it would have been overly cliche, but this is Clemence and PDA isn't her thing and oh, I loved it :D And Appy, mwahaha, is it bad that I'm all 'take that, b- sucker!'? Team Clemence, ftw! Mustard girl steals the chapter though :P
Argh, loved this chapter dear, and don't worry about the long wait, it was worth it xD And congrats on the first sex scene/morning after- is that something I should be congratulating? Oh well :P
Author's Response: I was totally struggling with character growth in first person, especially with a character like Clemence, because the entire time I was thinking 'Well, she does care in a sense, but she won't ever admit it or see it that way, so how do I show it if she doesn't even know it or interpret her actions as anything close to caring???'
BAHA now that you mention it, I would've paid to throw around sausage rolls too. The other thing I love about writing that kiss is that there's so much other meaning behind it (in those ginormous paragraphs), and that it becomes not about the kiss but about something to prove. And then the school gets to go to hell all over again 8D
♥ only in writing do you research how to kill people with a soda can and congratulate people on sex scenes!
