Gods, you're on an updating blitz. I'm having trouble keeping up :P
Anyway, just wanted to stop by this chapter to join the other reviewers and shout at you a bit.
OI OI OIOIOI
WHAT IS WHAT OI
Right now I have this axe in my hand and I'm just a twitch away from chopping a hole in the hull and sinking this Ediver ship because I'm incredibly unforgiving about these sorts of moments so help me helpme before I jump onboard Deadie.
OK, so don't know how many people had to pick their jaws off the floor - I certainly had to. I'm not even sure what is going on between Rose and Oliver - if you dropped hints of this in previous chapters I must certainly have missed it, or at least I must have been misled by everything. So Oliver has his secrets, does he? He doesn't seem too honest, hasn't been forthright with things, which I suppose makes sense as Edie is a journalist. Of sorts. UGH OLIVER.
I know there's a whole lot of other cool things in this chapter like Seamus & Edie bromance and the little mystery of Oliver's parents and the final bit where she bestows a revenge!snog on poor unsuspecting Jae and thus opening up a whole new labyrinth of complications - but seriously everything pales in comparison to THAT MOMENT. That moment where I start being melodramatic and say that things come shattering down. I think you handled it brilliantly, actually. It's really carefully written, not overdone at all. Especially loved that bit where their eyes meet and Oliver snaps his gaze away, not even bothering to apologise or explain himself away (I doubt Edie would have given him the chance, anyway). srsly what is going on?
Anyway, anyway, great chapter - this fic definitely deserved to win those Keckers awards ^.^
Author's Response: You!!!
I knoww, so much updating lately, gah. I think I'm just worried about losing steam and momentum (I don't think I will; it's just what I've done with every other story.) So all of my HPFF-time has been writing, and I haven't gotten to read or review anything in so long! :c But I need to prioritize, I suppose.
Hahahahaha!! Please, shout away. ;3
I think a lot of ships in the Ediver fleet are being sunk, abandoned, or burned down. (Seriously, it's like Peter Jackson is directing my review inbox.) Meanwhile I'm going to sit off to the side and watch what everyone does :P I already have the ending worked completely out, and it's not what I originally intended, but that's all I will say!
Wow, I'm really flattered that it was so shocking to you! I'm always so nervous to write these "plot twists" because I imagine everyone reading it, and then just crickets, and, "Yeah, we all saw that coming. Great. What's next." I wrote, erased, and re-wrote that ending something like four times. And let me tell you, the first one was so laughably AWFUL and dramatic. But I wanted it to be how things like that go in real life. Something happens, and it's like you're watching it on a TV screen, because nobody else could possibly know how it's making you feel, and then it's over. It's like it never happened at all. This miniscule, two-second event that you can't stop thinking about for weeks or even months.
Anyway, I'm glad it read decently! Thank you so much for taking the time to review. I can't wait until I have time to play on HPFF all day again. :3
