I have to say, this is an interesting development (:
well, one, I think I feel much better that Addison did feel guilty for treating Harry that way. I feel like slowly, my feel for her personality is that she's just very sarcastic most of the time and she seems like the complete opposite of Hugo, from what I know of him. Hugo is the type that you feel like anyone would get along easily with but Addison has a more difficult personality. She has that loyalty inside of her and I do get the feeling that she'd rather act on her feelings, however negative, than to just keep them inside.
James is very closed off to me. His shades and his attitude towards Addison's remark just makes me think that there's a lot about him that people don't see and there's a lot more to him than being just rude and arrogant. It seems like that's his mask of trying to hide whatever it is that he's hiding. That's not to say he might not be rude and arrogant because James certainly does not leave a good first impression, but I do still think that James doesn't feel like he has a need to make a good first impression.
This caused him to make Addison judge that he's unpleasant, an accusation that isn't totally unfound because she probably based that off of his attitude towards Hugo, which Addison's loyalty to him makes him rash in her decisions, however reasonable they do seem to her.
That'll probably be difficult for the two of them. Addison doesn't like to hide anything and James likes to hide everything. At least that's what I think so far xD
It should be interesting for the both of them to live with each other. The prospect of having to live with a "babysitter" probably doesn't sit well with James (who probably doesn't know that he's in danger) and the fact that James appears so arrogant and unopen is difficult for Addison.
Author's Response: Hello! :)
First and foremost, I literally love your reviews to death. While I like all the reviews that tell me the story's amazing and whatnot, I think all authors have a special place in their hearts for reviews that feature in-depth character analysis, talk about the story and offer concrit. Thanks so much. :)
Secondly, you're not very far off in your perception of Addison, James and Hugo. I mostly view Addison as a bitter, sarcastic person who would be reluctant to accept new people readily. Hugo, like a previous reviewer said, balances her out. And James, like you very correctly said, is a closed off person, but there's,more to him than meets the eye.
That being said, though Addison is easily guilt-tripped and /is/ definitely very loyal to her friends, etc., she is not a very /open/ person, or atleast, not at first, or with James. James has already made a rather bad impression on her (he was /definitely/ not trying to make a good one) so i'm sure Addison won't be very eager to chitchat with him about her life secrets.
Having a 'babysitter' is definitely irking James, which is why his relationship with Addison will be...interesting.
Thanks so much for reading and reviewing,
