Hi again!

Oooh, wow this campaign really is kicking up a storm! I loved learning more about wizarding traditions and its history when Thackeray was talking to the reporter because it was just really cool and interesting. I honestly thought the reporter was going to be Skeeter version 2.0 because when I heard her mention Quick Quotes Quill I was just sitting in tenterhooks throughout waiting for a horrible article ripping both Roxanne and Thackeray to shreds.

I still canít believe the article was a nice one though and Iím sitting here waiting for the horrible one to come out soon because I just find it hard to believe a reporter could be nice :P I can see why they left Thackerayís gender issues out of the article as it was already pretty radical, but I feel bad for Roxanne as she seemed quite hurt that they didnít mention her as he/sheís girlfriend.

Ahaha, I see how the Enchanted Garden plays into it! It does sound really lovely and mystical and I really want to see it again. I really liked how you went back to Thackerayís brother here and wrote more about him as I could understand he/she more as a character and it just made the garden seem even more magical. Ooh sort of related, but what Roxanne said to Thackeray about loving her no matter if she was a boy or girl but just as a person and it was so cute and sweet and I was gushing throughout!

I really loved how you tied it up and how we got to find out about them later on. There I was expecting an unhappy ending and we got a really happy and cute one so yay for that! Itís just so amazing that they both managed to stay together despite how society doesnít really accept relationships like that and I really loved how you showed love can really make anything possible.

This was such a great story, Jenna, and thanks for the great read :D

Author's Response: Hola!

Ah I'm so glad you liked all the history and background, I really enjoyed coming up with it! Imagining how wizards might fit into facts about Muggle history is really interesting and fun. Luckily the article was pretty nice, she could have made them out to be completely mad but I imagined in the next gen era people would feel a little positively about radicals and such. And yeah, I wanted to show how the reporter herself was a little uncertain about which gender to call Thackeray and to show that Thackeray is a little gender neutral or ambiguously presented in the world of the story, not just in the writing and lack of pronouns.

Aw, I'm glad you liked the enchanted ground and the mentions of the brother as well. Hehe, this chapter did have quite a bit of fluff in it and it was so fun to write. :)

Thank you! I'm really glad to hear that, I didn't want it to feel too rushed in jumping to the future but this was just a short story and it certainly could have dragged on forever if I allowed it to. I wanted them to have a happy ending - or a happy continuation in some ways. I'm not sure if they would be together forever, but definitely show a positive and modern relationship.

Thanks so much for all your wonderful reviews, Kiana, it's been a real joy receiving them and I love hearing all your thoughts and reactions! :D ♥
