Yo Gingerzzz (so this makes my competition much easier)
Sorry for not reviewing earlier. I read it, then scarpered for a bit for some reason- I got hit by the IDEAS ASTEROID and was a bit busy writing and stuff. So sorry. Cause it really hurts, that IDEAS ASTEROID. And yes, you must say it in all-caps.
Isn't that ironic? All-caps in lower case? Hahahahaha. It just made my day.
*COUGH*. Back to the story. Sorry.
Yeah, at first I was disappointed it was quite a short story, but I've sort of got used to it now. Lily was a very complicated, deep character and I think this length suits her somehow.
I haven't always got on with Lily. At times I find her a bit...Irritating. Hard to read. Which I think you got exactly right because that's how depressed people are. Although she's mildly depressed. And you don't like the word. Neither do I.
Like Lily, her relationship with Jack is complicated. As it should be, really. But I think they COULD BE (ah, ah?) happy together.
Well, I really enjoyed this story. I apologise if I bombarded you with reviews. I didn't mean to. :'(
Do you have any other stories planned?
For the last time (or on IMB, anyway),
THAT MADE ME FEEL SO SAD OMIGOSH :'(
P.S As for my name, and it sounding like it was out of book, have you ever heard of (you might not have, I'm told it's quite indie) James Bond? They're three little books about spies and there's also a couple of films. Don't worry if you haven't. :D
Author's Response: (Are you a gangster now? When did that happen?)
I'll forgive you, probably- ;) - IDEAS ASTEROID? Throw me some of those, they'd be very much appreciated! No apology needed, but accepted anyway. :) Tis very ironic. (I said that to my mum once when she was ironing my Shakespeare quote t-shirt. She was not impressed.) (in case you were wondering, 'this above all, to thine own self be true')
*coughcough* yes, you are right. Story. Hmm.
Aww, thank you. I'm glad it didn't disappoint you.
I don't think anyone entirely gets on with Lily, if that's any consolation. Her life choices are... not good, in my eyes. And I don't like her outlook on life in general, but she can't be tamed. *shrugs* Thank you. The word just has... SO much association. You hear depressed, you think a thousand other things. It's a heavy word.
I think they could be very, very happy together. And Lily could be happy on her own, which is a comforting thought, too. :)
I enjoyed your reviews probably as much as your enjoyed the story (possibly more), so don't you dare think I was annoyed by them- they were as fabulous as you are.
I am currently writing my next story! I'm really, REALLY hoping I'll be able to put it up on here, although it does push the boundary of 'crossover' quite a lot. If not, I'll definitely put it up somewhere, and tell you lot about it. (I know it's not a lot, but here's the unofficial-but-might-not-change title of the new story: 'Superhero'. It's completely different from anything I've written before and I really, REALLY like it. Oh, and what the heck, here's a clue about the plot: it relies heavily on muggles' lack of knowledge of magic.)
PS. I KNEW I KNEW THAT NAME. Not Matilda, BUT A BOOK NONETHELESS. I just didn't know where I knew that name from! Ooh, you're a Bond girl! Licence to... be Hot, and stuff. ;) it's been great hearing from you. Take care of yourself, okay?
