Surprise!! I bet you didn't expect two reviews from me in the space of 24 hours!!! Happy Review Battle!! :D
House of Cards is really fabulous and dark, so I wanted to check out some of your other/lighter work. :)
Oh, Ted. Such a silly person. When he went into the forest, I really thought that he was spying on Andromeda, but he was checking out her sister!! That's pretty hilarious (and also really weird), because Bellatrix is the absolute LAST person that he should love. The heart wants what it wants, I suppose!!
The description throughout all of this is superb. I could imagine the sunlight in the forest shining on the "Slytherin royalty," and it was all very pretty. Your descriptions of the scene made me want to go to Hogwarts just so that I could see it in person! (Not that I don't want to do that already...)
I recently watched 10 Things I Hate About You, so I appreciate the way Ted shares some characteristics with Joseph Gordon-Levitt's character (I can't remember his name!!). Also, he's on your banner. He was kind of adorable back then, haha. But yeah, Ted definitely fits the slightly-dorky, quixotic type, and that's what makes him even more endearing. Obviously, he can never be sad and heartbroken for too long before another girl catches his eye!!
Cheerio for now! :)
Author's Response: Happy Review Battle to you too! :) And thank you so much for both reviews - I really didn't expect this one, and they're both amazing! :)
Ohmigosh, I find lighter stuff so hard to write :P It always feels so weird, haha. Like I should kill someone off or something, haha!
Yeah, it was a strange situation to put in, but I really didn't want it to be the 'love at first sight' kinda thing - I wanted there to be a kind of twist, and I wanted it to be someone unexpected - so, Bella :P Also, he must have been pretty daring to even fancy Andromeda, it's a weird kind of bravery, so I wanted to play on that!
Thank you so much! :) I love description and describing things, so I'm so glad you liked it!
Honestly, I've never seen the film so any similarities with the character are completely coincidental! And yeah, he is the dorky, kinda weird guy who tries to be all romantic and fails and always wants the cheerleader, haha. He is a bit of a Romeo ;)
Thank you so much for this - I'm so glad you liked it! :)
