Poor Edie, that sounds like the worst job imaginable. And then getting kicked out of her flat on top of that, and appearing in the tabloids. Not her best week!

I'm really looking forward to next time Oliver and Edie see each other. Their interactions are so awkward and adorable. (And - I forgot to mention this on the last chapter I reviewed because I'm really scatter brained, but you mentioned Oliver's love of books again in this chapter so I remembered - I love that Oliver likes Arthur C. Clarke (who is a wizard... haha!) And Jack Keroac. I love both of those authors!

Which brings me to my next point - your writing style is so engaging, with all the little details and references you put in there. It makes the characters that much more three-dimensional, and it's easy to identify with them!

The whole scene outside Edie's flat really amused me, from her guesses as to Seamus's new password, to her "your mum" responses to Simon's Howler. Good thing there weren't Muggles in the area, that'd be hard to explain.

Another fantastic chapter!

Author's Response: Not her best week, indeed. I feel like this chapter was the culmination of all bad things happening to her... Don't fret, her life won't be inexplicably easy from here on out, but I feel like this was the motherload of bad situations.

I do love writing awkward Ediver interactions... I also find them quite adorable, though of course I would. Yes! Bookish Oliver! I feel like he's always portrayed as this total brute, because he's so obsessed with Quidditch. I know I've said this before, but I want to ~*~spread the word~*~ so I'll say it again. I imagine that at Hogwarts, he was entirely absorbed in Quidditch to the point that he had no social life. Katie was his only friend/girlfriend and when they weren't hanging out, or when he wasn't devising Quidditch plays, he probably spent time alone reading. Hence his strange character-amalgamation of athlete/nerd.

Pahaha, yes. Explaining a Howler to Muggles would be difficult. And I think you just pointed out a fault in the plot--I feel like I mentioned Edie's flat being just past the brick wall leading to Diagon Alley, which *would* make it Muggle-London. Hmm! I have to go back and check. Halfway through the story I was like "Why hasn't Diagon Alley expanded at ALL after 15 years since these people were in their First Year?" and went with that. But I think you're right. I think I mentioned Edie living just past the brick wall, and I need to fix it. Thanks!
