Ugh, yes! I'm so excited about this chapter!!
Really, I read it this morning at 1:00 AM and I wanted to review it then, but trust me, it would've been WAY more incoherent than this review will be. :)
I like the idea of Andie taking up residence in an inn that isn't the Leaky Cauldron. We hear a lot about the Leaky and the various shops on Diagon Alley, but hey, what about the other hotels and such?! So I'm glad that there's another one. And I like the name "Obscuro Books." It sounds like a fun place to go. Maybe when I go to Diagon Alley next time, I'll stop by and check out the books. (Hahaha, in my dreams.)
George! He's so super-suspicious of Andie. I think that's great--he has no earthly idea how much she's changed, or even that she and Ted have a friend thing going on, so his confusion when Ted wanted to speak to her was really funny. He hasn't appeared much so far, but he seems like a really good friend. I like him for that!
And Nelson! Ted and his brother have such a lovely relationship. It's really sad about their parents, though, and I hate that. But they were just perfect, all joking around and grinning. "Strippogram," hahahaha!! :D
But the last part of the chapter was, of course, my favorite. I LOVE Tedromeda! It's so cool that Andie is FINALLY admitting that she was horrible to Ted, and that he gave her a lot of help that she didn't deserve. It really, really shows how much she has changed over the course of thirteen chapters. She missed Ted! She missed him so much, but he just wants her to rest so that she'll be normal Andie again...
I wonder what was going on in his head when she said that she missed him. He probably missed her too, I think, but he must have some reservations about liking her or something. What's going on behind those gorgeous eyes?!?! I guess I'll have to wait for more Tedromeda in chapter 14!!
Such congrats on thirteen chapters!! That's a crazy amount! I really admire you for making time to write this much, because I never seem to have the time (double-majoring and being lazy will do that to a person, I guess). But, despite your real life concerns (like being a grown-up and having a job and stuff), I hope that you don't stay away from the world of Tedromeda for too long! If that happens, I'll probably go back and reread the whole story and be really sad that it hasn't continued yet. :P
So, yeah. Update whenever you can (preferably soon)!!
Author's Response: OH HI THERE.
Aww, no 1 AM review? I'm sure it would've been really fun to read. Haha. But this one's been pretty darn great to read, too.
Yeah! Next time you're in the area, you should totally check out Obscurus Books. They've got such a fine collection. Lol. But I did figure that a place as big as Diagon Alley had to have more than just one inn, right? Right.
George is that friend that everyone needs and that everyone's enemies should fear. He means business, yo. He's Ted's own personal security guard. :) I'm having lots of fun with Nelson so far. I picture him and Ted as having similar laid-back personalities, only Nelson is the more irreverent one and more liable of doing morally questionable stuff. Haha.
YAY TEDROMEDA. Dromeda is definitely taking a turn for the better, but she has been through a lot of upheaval lately, and Ted is just a little concerned that she's got a blow to the head or something. Ladies of the House of Black don't apologize. OR DO THEY.
Further insight will come into the mystery behind Ted's super-mysterious eyes. Durn durn durn.
Thank you on the congrats! This is just one of those rare stories that was way more ready to burst out than even I thought it would be. I'm still in that stage when I eagerly look forward to snagging some time to write more. It also helps that I'm working on this other big, less pleasant writing project, so writing Dromeda's story is more like a reward than anything else. I'm working on new material as we speak, so I hope to be sending a new chapter into the queue son!
