Oh my goodness. That chapter... What can I even say? I'm speechless!!!
Ok, after taking a few moments to collect myself, and can actually form words, OH MY MERLIN GABBIE. THAT WAS INCREDIBLE. SO MANY FEELS.
YOU DEDICATED THIS CHAPTER TO ME? Gabbie! You're so sweet! I'm already a little pile of feels!
BLASTORIA BLASTORIA BLASTORIA! I knew they would happen! I knew it, I knew it! And I'm so happy that they're finally together and that they're getting married and they're so cute and Blaise is amazing and Astoria is fantastic and I love them both. I just can't believe they're actually getting MARRIED.
BUT WHAT ABOUT MALFOY? He's not going to be happy about that! He's still lurking about somewhere... I'm really nervous about that!
And Maximus Greengrass might be the most infuriating father ever. He's so, so much worse than Dezzy's dad. He just makes me really angry and really creeped out at the same time! You've made a ton of really bold character choices with him, and they've made his character so, so prominent, even when he's not physically in a scene. It's like he said- HE'S ALWAYS WATCHING. which is so, so scary!
And Scoripous is terrifying, too! I loved his character so much at the beginning of the story, and then he changed and got all mean and scary and I just want him to go back to being nice! I was honestly shocked at some of the things he had the nerve to say to his sister! My jaw dropped!
I think I can forgive Emily a little, because she seems more afraid than anything, and she's almost what Stori could have turned into if she had gotten sucked into the family business, so it's really fascinating to see them together now that Stori is openly defying her family.
I'm just so happy they're getting married!!! BLASTORIA.
This story just plays with my emotions! I'm all over the place while I'm reading it! I'm so happy and creeped out and nervous and sad and angry all at the same time and it's crazy! You have some serious talent as a writer to be able to do that!
This chapter was phenomenal, and I'm so happy you told me it was up so I could come read it! I'm in a bit of a writing slump at the moment, but as soon as something's up for you, I'll let you know!
Incredible job, as usual! 10/10
Author's Response: Hello!
*Blush* Cassie, I will never get tired of your reviews, they really do make my like, entire week. Hahahh. This chapter took me AGES to write properly, and nothing I did for it worked out, I had to change the entire setting to get it right.
I think this entire story could be dedicated to you, honestly, since you've read it so much and have been pretty much my only reviewer. Hahahha.
Blastoria does happen finally! I was blushing so much while writing that scene but it turned out so much better than I thought it would, thank goodness. I was sort of afraid that I'd messed up...
Ah, Malfoy. We'll be seeing our dearly beloved Draco very soon actually and he's not going to be very happy. Let's just say he's going to take bullying to a whole new level.
Maximus Greengrass is the scariest person in the world for me to write. He's very complex and getting into the head of someone like that is really difficult but I based his character on alot of mob bosses I saw on TV.
He has a way of seeping into your skin that's really unnerving! D':
Oh, Scorpy. I had so much trouble writing this scene because I love him so much but at the same time, he is a product of lies and fear. Astoria is betraying not only their family but the image he had always had of her, which I'll get into later. I want him to get nice again too but at the moment I don't think he can, he sort of has too much hate in his heart. Poor thing.
I think Emily would be like the future Astoria! I had never even thought of it that way, to be honest...but that's such a good comparison!
I think Emily and Astoria have more of a mother/daughter relationship, its not so much sisterly and it breaks me up having to write them growing apart.
I'm sorry I mess up your emotions but trust me, the pain has barely begun! Oh, them feels! Hahahahaha.
OH, stop complimenting me..my head is swelling dangerously.
Thanks so much for the lovely review, as always, they mean a TON to me. But I hope you post more stories up for me, I just haven't had time to really read or get online at the moment. D':
Albus is going to be up and Audrey is waiting for you and speaking of feels...be careful with that one. HAHAHAHA.
