I can't believe this is over *sniff*
I loved the ending, though and the epilogue was just perfect! I don't care that it might have just been a little, teeny, weeny bit cliche with most of them being happy, because it just HAD to happen and it wasn't unrealistic. So I embrace the fluffy, happiness with absolutely no regrets :D ...
I’m so glad everything worked out ok for James and Ellie, they're just adorable. And, of course, Chleo . It just makes me smile knowing that both of the couples are FINALLY together ;) I also sort of like how Scorpius and Rose are not a couple (yet?), I mean it certainly would be cliche if Scorpius suddenly realised his love for Rose was more than the fact that they're best friends right at the end so that ScoRose can join Jellie and Chleo with the awesome name combinations, hehe.
They kind of remind me of Ron and Hermione a little bit. With Ron being a bit slow and Hermione always getting frustrated with him. It's sort of realistic too, he's just a teenage boy after all and everyone knows they are all clueless…. No, I kid, they're not all clueless, just most of them….
ALBUS! He's definitely my utmost favourite character. The bit where he says about Aphra Behn being his girl, that's just brilliant and totally like me. I adore him and want to be his best friend. Can I please be his best friend? Haha. I agree with Scorpius though, he needs a girl and I am holding out hope for him in Instructing Isadora.
“I do the only reasonable thing. I throw a spoon at him.” I am overjoyed that you ended your story with this line. It's just excellent, superb, impeccable, splendid. I'm not sure that there's an exact word for how I feel about that last line – it just fits perfectly.
I can't wait for Instructing Isadora and I really hope your fiance feels better soon!!
Author's Response: Hullo Katie!
I am...*dramatic silence*...the KING OF FLUFF! Although, you must admit that I did bring a smile to your face, right? RIGHT??
I wanted to convey the true lack of emotional understanding that boys Scorpius's age have. Seriously, when I was the kid's age, I still couldn't decipher between my "want to snog her so bad" with my "I want to punch her so much" feelings. Weird, I know, but my hate/love line was pretty thin.
Albus is getting some love with these reviews, I love that, especially since the sequel is all about the poor kid. You may be his best friend! He will probably like that. Right now, he's sitting around, reading and waiting for me to put his story up. Basically, he's lonely, I'll set you two up.
The sequel should be out soon! My fiance's okay, just throwing up and such. I have no idea what to do!
Anyways, thanks for your beautifully eloquent thoughts, looking forward to hearing from you again,
