|Review:||Lobelia Sackville-Baggins says:|
I hope your boyfriend is doing better. You take care of yourself, you hear? I've said it before when uni got bad -- you take care of your life, and yourself, and your boyfriend, and THEN come back to us. We will welcome you back with fluffy snuggles.
(speaking of, WELCOME BACK!)
Now. That chapter. Wow. Holy little fishies. That escalated very quickly. Also, Ginny being like "umm...everything okay in there?" But awkward to oy-gevalt-sexy to awkward and back again. Goodness gracious. *shivers*
Also -- TERRIFIED of the verdict. Are there really Magical Schools of Manners and Etiquette? Sounds horrendous! Seth would shrivel and die in that kind of place -- or rather, she would if she wasn't so strong. No, she'd just be absolutely miserable while they tried to mold her into a cookie-cutter society lady. My goodness, I'm gagging just thinking about it. Nonononnnono, not Seth.
And can you imagine the Potters' reaction if she was suddenly pulled out of school? Like, "oh BEEP, things really ARE that bad in the old pureblood families." Although I have a feeling someone unexpected from inside the family is going to intervene on her behalf...? We'll see.
Gotta tell you about another "I-am-Seth" moment I had the other day: I was taking a nap, and then my mom came into my room and woke me up, and when she did her face was about three inches from mine. I opened my eyes, and for whatever reason, I thought her head was a porcupine. So, naturally, I screamed "PORCUPINE" in my mother's face. And when she was like "...what?!" I muttered sleepily "oh, good, it's you. I thought you were that damn porcupine." Is that a Seth moment? Or do you think it's more Katie? Either way, it's a silly thing that I did that I hope made you laugh a little and take some stress off those shoulders, at least temporarily.
I love you, and I can't wait for more -- BUT take care of yourself and your boyfriend first!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! He is doing much better already... sleeping most of the time but definitely better :). It's kind of weird how your outlook on life changes within seconds... the possibility of losing someone you love forever really puts things into perspective...
Well, I'm getting sentimental again :'D... I could really need those fluffy snuggles right now :)
I'M SO GLAD YOU LIKED THE CHAPTER! I really am... it took me long enough to finish it haha... the verdict is not going to be good, but it wouldn't be Seth if she didn't come up with some clever plan ;). And I imagine there would be magical schools like that... I have to say, I'm not so happy about Rowling's big magical school reveal and I always liked to imagine that there are more than 11(? can't remember exactly what she said) big magical schools... After all, what about all the langauges spoken in Europe? Anyways... I like to imagine that there is such a school for rich pureblood daughters that don't behave as their families wish... It's basically a Woodley tradition to cart off rebellious family members to Madame Esher's Academy :)
The Porcupine incident is such a great story! I laughed out loud and then read it to boyfriend, who thought it was hilarious too! I can so see this happening to Seth OR to Katie... I'm just picturing it again and it's so great!
Well, thank you for another amzingly awesome review! I'm always looking forward to hearing from you! It really means a lot to me!
Don't let that porcupine get you!
