Can I do some Sebastian hating? Maybe just a little? Okay, here goes (and I do it as lovingly as possible). All Verity is looking for is a little sympathy for the chaos she's dealing with at work, but does Sebastian come through? Nope, he's all 'this place is a dump regardless' (or something to that extent). Then, she's all smiling (most likely dreamily) when she tells him that George walked her home from the pub, aaand he doesn't even get jealous!
*Cough* Sorry. I'm done now. So, the Midas joke was pretty awesome. Actually, I'm absolutely in love with it! It's going on my quote wall! I'm running out of wall!
Christian is super shady! He gives me the creeps, kind of like Dawlish. The society is also really shady. Gosh, I can't decide if they may have been involved in Death Eater activity or were acting against that sort of idea. Whatever they were involved in, its mysterious enough that Verity is of course going to investigate! How could she not? Maybe she could tell me when she figures it out! ;)
I also love the spinning wheel! You're always throwing some mythology or fair tale essence my way! Well, I'm sure they're not directed for me, but I'll pretend because they never fail to excite me! :D
O.O Oh Verity! Don't cry! Okay, well it's understandable why she would be crying...there's a ton going on right now. Where's George? He could make her feel better. Drey seems to be doing the trick for now, anyway. Heheh, poor Percy. Being the responsible type, of course he ended up paying...poor guy. Those twins are trouble-makers ;).
Speaking of. Hooray for adventure! I love that Verity is going on said 'adventure' with the twins! Oh goodness, they're sneaking into the Ministry! They can't just sneak into the Ministry! Well, they *can* but that doesn't mean that they should! *Covers eyes*
No, wait, KISSES! *SQUEE* Hooray! They kissed! I mean, she probably shouldn't be kissing George while she's still dating Sebastian, but KISSES!! :D
Uh-oh! Gah! You can't end the chapter there! :( I'm so excited for the next one!! Where is it?
Author's Response: Hello! :)
Oh of course, Sebastian totally deserves some hate here. You have him spot on with how he doesn't see that Verity needs her to agree with him. He's taking her for granted here, but potentially not for long if he finds out about the events at the end of the chapter... :P
Hehe yay for Midas! :) I'm so glad you liked it.
He is super creepy! So is the society... well, there's more to come about that in the near future. It's quite fun coming up with it, I'm excited to reveal more to the readers. Verity would have been a detective in another life, she really wants to find out what happened to Penny!
Yay, I loved the idea of the spinning wheel! :D It's so fun, tying in mythology and little stories to the shop, and I love how you enjoy them!
There is! George would be a good shoulder to cry on indeed. :P Hehe, I know, poor Percy! Ah well, he could probably afford it and does deserve it a little bit.
George's attempt to impress Verity was bound to backfire in some way. :P Muahaha *evil author laugh*, I've had this planned for ages so was so happy to finally have it out.
Kisses! :D Kisses that might get somebody in trouble later, but I'm glad you liked them! :)
Thanks so much for the brilliant review, next chapter will hopefully be up in the next couple of weeks! :) I loved this, you are an awesome reviewer! :)
