Review:Dia says:
Is it weird that what I loved the most about this chapter was the Hogwarts houses debate? Not because it was engaging and addresses stereotypes, but because of how it addresses the dynamic between James and Amelia. I like that they're the kind of couple who have been united by a mystery, able to actually *talk* to each other about interesting topics, and that they don't lose their individuality just because they start dating. (Also was it just me who sensed a very subtle sexual tension in that argument? I'm glad they didn't just end it by snogging though - hate how unrealistic that is) and Skeeter's article was infuriatingly amusing! Great chapter :)

Author's Response: Thanks for your review, Dia! :)

It isn't weird at all that you loved the debate. You caught onto part of what I was going for with this argument. First, I think that James and Amelia as a couple works for both of them beyond "s/he is good looking." James needs constant stimulation (which is partly why he's so into sports, since he can always be moving), and Amelia's intellect provides that for him. Amelia needs a confidant, especially since she's dealing with abandonment issues, and James has a way to gain her trust, no matter how uncomfortable it makes her feel at the time. Also, James and Amelia are individuals, and they are now really discovering that about each other. Good catch with the sexual tension, too. While their individuality is a cause to their fight, they are both still curiously attracted to the other individual. They are definitely learning that they're separate people, and deep down, they still really like each other... for now. ;)

Anyway, thanks for such a good review and great observations!
