Hi Gina here for the 12 days of reviewing challenge on the forums! I did intend on reviewing each chapter, but I wanted to know whether James got the girl or not so if all my thoughts seemed swirled together and hard to read itís because theyíre based on all three chapters :P

Haha, you have another brilliant set of characters and your characterisation skills were so amazing again because all of them were so unique and original and nothing like Iíve really seen before. I absolutely loved James, he was hilarious and this was one of my favourite characterisations of him! I think it was the fact he was so full of himself but at the same time he was sort of trying to be sincere too and the mix of that had me giggling. I think my favourite scene was when he was trying to pretend to Ellian that he had a ton of girls wanting to date him when it just wasnít true.

I loved Ellian too because it was nice to include the scientific element to her given that the general view that science is for boys which isnít true. It was also really fun to her quoting the latest experiment results in Hogwarts as it was just so surreal to see science go on there. She also had this confidence about her, like she knew how she viewed herself and how others did too, and that was a pleasing change from the constant characters which always doubt themselves.

Aw, Albus asked her to the ball, that moment was so cute I was gushing throughout as he was so awkward and I wanted to squish him because of that. Plus, heís a Hufflepuff which seems to make him even cuter. ♥

Aw, he said he loved her then wah she didnít love him and they kissed and there were no fireworks and James was just like a lost puppy but I feel proud of Ellian for not just agreeing to date him so to save their friendship but standing by her feelings and what she really wants.

I really liked the ending to the story because the unconventional romance was such a pleasant change and the way James wanted to be twirled had me giggling. Even though the majority of the story was fluff, I didnít feel like being sick from it like I usually do but I really enjoyed it so kudos for that and for writing such a great story as this was really lovely!

Author's Response: Heee hey Kiana! I'm so glad you chose this fic. This is what my fluff is like when it's all concentrated, like a sheep in need of shearing. It's got all my bad puns, silly pet quirks, and too-timely quips; basically all my favorite things rolled in one.

Dumb James is my favorite kind of James. I could never take smouldering-hot James seriously (though my headcanon agrees with the fandom trend that he's the hotter Potter, probably because he isn't plagued by a name like Albus). I love him as a bit of a jock and a sweetheart, well-intentioned but spoiled. He was the first to know himself as the son of the boy who lived.

I love my confident characters! For me, it's much easier for me to write them than characters who doubt themselves constantly. And they're more fun to write when they get shaken up. I imagine Ellian as someone who has got her confidence and daily life down to a *science* and does not like James messing with the status quo.

Whenever I write a romance, I try to show at least some things different from the norm of how a relationship is written, because there are so many interesting relationships out there that can't be easily labeled. I've found that people have a really hard time accepting that! As if a fulfilling love only goes on a certain path and meets certain requirements, as if x will always provoke x reaction, etc. James and Ellian's full story is actually quite romantic, and I'd like to one day share a bigger chunk of it.

Thank you so much for reading! ^__^
