Hi! It feels like it's been a LONG time since I've read or reviewed this story, but when I saw that you had posted not just one, but TWO chapters, I had to postpone my homework. This is too important to pass up. :)
This is such a long chapter! I love it! Not only do we get to learn about Ted's mysterious "condition," but the return of George brings on some more melodrama!! Hoorah! Of course, the chapter was a bit shouty, but it definitely worked for the situation!
Ted=linnet. THAT'S AWESOME. I happen to really love birds--I make my own hair clips with fake birds on them (like craft birds, not taxidermied ones...) and wear them in my hair. So it really makes me happy that Ted is a bird. I think it fits with his personality, too. Yay for metamorphosing Animagi! :D
Awww, Andromeda and Ted and the cake... She wants him to have the bigger piece because she cares about him. D'aw. But obviously, he doesn't understand that and he's skeptical. That's understandable, but for heaven's sake, why can't people ever just come right out and say what they're thinking?! It's mostly Andromeda's fault that Ted is temporarily paralyzed, but if they had sat down and had a proper conversation, then maybe they could've avoided that. Oh well, at least it led to a whole bunch more drama. And so they finally sit down and are beginning to have a chat, but then POOF! George Vanderpool, ladies and gentlemen!
Wow, he's an angry one. This guy takes being a Hufflepuff to the extreme, as far as loyalty to your friends goes. His rage, however, is definitely not a Hufflepuffian quality, which is excellent. The Puffle-y Puffs are too often portrayed as marshmallow-y sweethearts, and George (and Ted, for that matter) completely smashes that with his rage. He really wants to hang out with Ted, that's for sure! Apparently he doesn't know that Andromeda isn't a Ted-hater anymore, and that's what makes the whole scene even more interesting. He's blaming her for everything, but it wasn't completely all her fault (mostly).
I wonder how well the dragging of Ted to George's house is going to go... Perhaps I should read on to find out?
Yes, I shall do that. :)
Author's Response: HELLO THERE. I just love your reviews. Love em.
Baha, I know you said that your birds aren't taxidermy type, but now I've got this really bizarre image in my head of crazy stuffed birds--like the kind Marie Antoinette would wear on her wig. I'm sure your birds are actually totally normal and adorable. So cute. Birds rule. Especially linnets. Obvz.
Of course Andromeda wants Ted to have the bigger slice. -Bambi eyes- She wants him to have ALL the cake. He's so sickly, and it's freaking her out. Also, Andromeda doesn't know how the heck to care for someone while they're convalescing. Lol. If Ted were dying of scarlet fever, she'd still prolly try to feed him cake.
Yeah, Ted and Andromeda have this problem, and it's called NOT TALKING ABOUT THEIR PROBLEMS. Of course, I don't mind, 'cos it means constant drama. But still.
George is an angry little badger. Like the honey badger. That kind of Huffly-Puffly badger for sure. He just wants his Teddykins all to himself. :(
ONWARD TO THY NEXT REVIEW.
