|Review:||nott theodore says:|
So, I figured it was about time that I left you a review on this story after pestering you with all those questions on the MTA page. I just want to say that I really do love pretty much everything you write, and you're a great author!
So, onto the actual chapter...
Leo stood up to his parents! That made me really happy, because despite his questionable attitude towards women, he does really care about Ellie, and this proves it. Their parents are really horrible and they're probably better off without them, even though things won't be easy for them. And I'm intrigued to see what he really makes of Charlotte's list, and if that's going to make him do anything about her soon!
The conversation between Scorpius and Rose was really cute (sorry, I can't think of another word for it!) and them agreeing to be friends made me smile. They are both insane (Scorpius definitely) and I hope they stay on good terms.
I should hate you right now for taking away James' happiness, but I actually don't! I certainly wasn't expecting his reaction to be so bad to the inevitable break-up, since he knew they were basically just friends. But I can understand it, because rejection is never easy to take, and poor old James has been rejected enough to last him a lifetime!
It's really interesting to read romance written by a guy and from a guy's point of view. Most stories make the guy seem perfect and self-assured, and it's nice to read characters that have insecurities, and aren't confident in their looks and abilities, because they just seem more real and believable.
You have me worried for the next chapter, but I'm holding out hope (you didn't take away my hope with this one) that everything will work out in the end!

*hops up and dances around the room*
Pestering? Psh, no way! I was sick in bed yesterday, and apparently today, so I was just internetting (I made it a verb, because I have no life). Mostly looking at pictures of cat.
The list...dun dun duuunnn! Actually, I was having a fun time writing about that list, because I had Charlotte write it waaay back at the beginning of the novel, then she doesn't follow it, making it seem unimportant. Then, out of the blue, it suddenly becomes super important! Yup...I like to keep my readers on their toes.
Eh, they are pretty cute. I shall accept your word choice without grimacing too much. Oh yes, they're finally friends again :D
You don't hate me, yay! He has been rejected over and over again. I don't know if you picked up on this, but I kind of hinted at that being the reason why he kissed Rachelle the moment she agreed to go on a date with him. I'm telling you that to keep myself from giving too much away about the coming chapters. I have urges to just tell everyone what's going to happen :/
I think my biggest trouble (besides the kissing scenes) is trying to keep from making Ellie too perfect. With guys, I know where to put their insecurities, but with girls...not so much. Hopefully Ellie doesn't seem like a Mary Sue.
The next chapter is my absolute favourite! You'll like it...maybe :P
