I was planning on reading this yesterday, but with the prank and all I thought it would be better to wait for the words to be back to normal! Oh and before I forget I havenít forgotten about Post Scriptum, I just never seem to have the time, but I should get round to it the next few days... hopefully :D
It was funny to see that Darcy was the one being made up for once, as usually itís her doing it for other people. It was nice that she got her time to shine though, and hopefully Albus will notice the effort she put into it. Aha she was doing it for Albus, I really should leave writing the review until the end of the chapter, but I have tendency to forget everything then! And sheís going to Paris with him, the only time I went was when I was nine so I was more impressed by the Eiffel Tower than the romance, but I can see why Darcy was getting excited.
Haha Lorcanís smug and angry! That was a great twist, Iím so used to seeing him being dreamy and airy, but this was such a nice change. Who knows maybe Rolf was like that, as we never get to meet him. Then again, no one would ever imagine that Lorcan would be an editor for a fashion magazine. I didnít expect Skeeter and Lockhart to pop up at the fashion show, but I loved it with both of them being vain and sort of celebrities.
Aw, the note! How romantic! I was glad to see that Albus had brought up the last date and that he was apologising for it, it was so him. I almost thought it was meant to be a date then, but hey thereís a show to go! At least there was a kiss and it made me aw again!
I liked the runway scene. Of course Lily would have to rebel and begin smiling. I liked it though, because Iíve watched fashion shows and the people just look moody, even though they get to wear designer dresses worth thousands of pounds, but Lily said true to who she was. Iím glad they won though, I couldnít have seen it go any other way. And Darcy even won praise from Rita Skeeter, so it must have been good.
Next-gen and fluff arenít usually my sort of thing either, but Iíve really enjoyed this story, and Iíll be sad to see it end. As for your points in youíre AN Iíve really loved Darcy as an OC, and the plot line was great too, so itís been a delight to read this story.
Author's Response: Probably a good call :) I was rolling with laughter just looking back at my own stories. And I know you're busy, so if you don't have time to check out Post Scriptum, that's okay. If you do, though, I'm excited to hear from you!
Darcy is finally giving in to the romance of a trip to Paris with the boy she has a crush on. She's not totally devoid of glamour, and she does like to dress up and go out once in a while. I'm glad to hear that you liked her little meetup with Albus and the kiss scene.
My head canon for this story is that Lorcan is the one who doesn't fit into his family. His straight-laced nature is his way of separating himself from his brother and rebelling against his straight-laced parents. I'm happy you liked seeing those familiar faces on the panel!
It's good that you enjoyed the fashion show, too. I was a little worried about the quick pace in this chapter, but I figured everyone could guess how things would turn out with the contest. Don't worry, one more chapter is still left--it's an epilogue of sorts. Stay tuned!
Thanks, Kiana, for another fantastic review!
