Okay, I'm totally on board the Dahlia/James ship, you've really managed to get me interested in how they're going to come together after this chapter!

Love love love Dahlia, her entire attitude and her sh'tty waitressing skills! And I like how she was straight with James from the beginning, not beating around the bush just beating him with some sense.
And James, my ultimate fave, how lovely wasn't he? (Forever mourning the loss of his manbun, please grow it out magically Jemmie) He's a bit pathetic, but that's understandable if you're heartbroken. I genuinely thought he was under some sort of love potion/spell first because he sounded almost too hung up on his ex, but now I sort of thinks he's just lonely? I don't know if that's the right vibe or not, but since all it took was a stern talking to from a stranger to make him realize that he just wanted a relationship, I suspect that.
Also how cool is it that you've made him a writer? Very unusual for how the fandom likes to portray James, so yay! Hope he's not getting a too hard time from his family because of it though.

"And shes aware of it too which I have always found attractive in a girl you know, its ridiculous to expect girls to always be demure and shy and unaware of their beauty. I never understood why people made a big deal about girls being vain when all they are is aware of their own beauty? So uh, yeah. Constance is beautiful and she embraces it. Which I like.

So important and so good, love that Dahlia got to see that side of James, not just the womanizer (which he's not really, he's honest with the girls he hooks up with and that is another plus. Is it the most mature behavior? Maybe not, but he's considerate enough to make sure they know what they can expect from him)

And yeah, it's going to be really interesting to see Dahlia and James' future encounters after that kiss that never happened... Maybe it's better for James if he doesn't remember it lol

Author's Response: Hey!

Haha, I’m glad to hear you ship them. I was certain that everyone would just be like “…wth is this” when I introduced him, but I do love their interactions because they are absolutely Ridiculous. All they do is bicker :P

I have had a few messages tragically mourning James’ manbun so there is definitely a chance he might grow it back in future chapters. Who knows tbh?

Ah I’m glad you liked both Dahlia and James. I always overthink my chapters and characters so I was really worried that she would come off as hella unlikeable (because she’s not exactly the sweetest character) and that James would come off as plain weird (which I suppose he is lol). I think you’ve hit the nail on the head there about him: he *is* lonely. He has no real direction in where he’s going now that he’s out of Hogwarts so nothing to properly ground him and half his friends are off at work. Plus (and this is going to be mentioned in a later chapter), even though he messed around a bit in Hogwarts, he sort of has this idea that True Love must be discovered at a young age simply because it happened that way with a lot of his family. He’s basically scrambling to make up for lost time and get it.

So yeah, he’s a little pathetic, but he’s essentially just going through an existential crisis as he finds his feet in the World of Adults. Poor kid.

“Maybe it's better for James if he doesn't remember it lol” – Probably haha. Unfortunately for our boy James, it just didn’t work out that way XD

Thanks for the review!
