Review #26, by TreacleTart The Worst Had Happened

17th August 2015:
Hey there!

I'm here for the first of our review swaps!

Poor Dom! It seems like she's pretty obviously distraught about her attack. I can understand why, but am a bit frustrated with her since she chose to put herself in that position. I guess I just don't feel a whole ton of sympathy for her because I felt that she was being reckless.

Teddy was so sweet in this. You can tell that he's trying really hard to make her feel better, but I just don't think the write words exist in this type of situation. Hopefully, he can just keep trying to be patient with her. I think she'll come around eventually.

I still can't fathom why Dom went to interview werewolves on a full moon.

Now just a bit of concrit. I did notice that you have a tendency to repeat words frequently. For example: "Her mind was fuzzy yet a face with horrible yellow eyes and a long snout was plastered in the front of her mind." I think this would read better if you said something like "Her mind was fuzzy...a long snout was plastered into her imagination." That way you don't have the second repetition of the word mind.

I thought this was a good chapter and I'm looking forward to reading more, but the other reviews will have to wait until the morning because I'm headed to bed.


Author's Response: Thank you for reading and reviewing! I'm glad you liked it. I'll take your comments under consideration when I edit!

Review #27, by TreacleTart Dreading The Worst

10th August 2015:
Hi there!

I'm here for our review swap!

So this is really an intriguing start! I can't for the life of me figure out why Dominique wants to go chasing werewolves. I mean I see that she's facing down her fears, but why chase them down in this fashion? And honestly, why chase them down at all? How often is she likely to have fear of werewolves affect her in life?

By all means it seems that she has the perfect life going for her, so I'm having a terrible time trying to understand why she'd be willing to risk all of that.

I was curious. In this story your character is Dominique and you have her dating Teddy Lupin. I wondered if that was intentional or just a mix up. Either way, I sort of like the idea of Teddy going after someone besides Victoire.

You certainly ended this chapter on a very ominous note. The yellow eyes and the feeling of fangs sinking into her flesh. It was very vivid and left me feeling quite creeped out.

I must admit that I'm really curious where this story will go after this chapter. Will it continue to follow Dominique and her soon to be life as a werewolf? How does this event tie in? I must know more.

Anyway, good work on this and I hope that this review is coherent.


Author's Response: Hey! Thank you for the kind review!

I am glad you liked it! Dominique is a determined journalist so she took on the story to further her career as well as prove to herself that she could do this - that her fear doesn't matter more than her journalism. She's a bit reckless that way xP

Thank you for your kind words once again. I am pleased you're intrigued and hope you can come back for more!

Hi! I'm here from the review tag! :)

Oh my gosh! I'm speechless... What an intriguing first chapter! Definitely not boring in the slightest.

I really enjoyed reading this! Dominique's characterisation is excellent and very well written, I love how journalism is so important to her that she put herself in a dangerous position to get the story she needs. Also, the way you described her fear of being bitten was brilliant and very realistic and these aspects of her make her feel relatable to the reader straight away which is important.

Your descriptions are also very good, you've done a very good job of giving just enough description that the reader can imagine the scene as clearly as if they were there without overloading them with information. And that last line, oh my gosh, way to write a perfect cliffhanger!

This is really a brilliant opening chapter and I'll definitely be back to read more! :)

Author's Response: Hey! Thank you so much for reading and reviewing.

I am pleased you enjoyed reading this and that you liked Dominique. Her career is definitely very important to her and I'm glad that came across. Descriptions are something I always struggle with so I am happy you enjoyed them.

Thank you so much!

I am back once more, I couldn't stay away,
House Cup 2015, for Hufflepuff!

Wow. Again. (This is becoming somewhat of a thing- I can't help it!) I hope that's a compliment. It's a first reactions sort of thing for you!

My heart is just in pain now, I'm upset because she's upset. I still can't comprehend what Dom has just gone through. She's just lost her ability to have kids, for sure. And now I just want to squish her again and tell her it's going to be okay. (But it's fine, because Teddy does that!- I love their love!)

I like the way you've presented her parents by the way. I know I get stressed out trying to portray important characters like FLeur and Bill that we know so well from the books, but you did really well! I can imagine those words coming out of their mouths so effortlessly. It's a credit to your fanfic writing!

I also like the chief werewolf. He seems... I want to say fun... but that's not the right word... I can't think of it. There's just something about him that I like!

Oh, no! Really?! Like, really?! Her editor?! WHAT KIND OF SICK JOKE IS THAT?! I'm am so unimpressed by this woman it's unreal... I agree with Teddy, I hate her! A LOT!

Emz xxx

Author's Response: Thank you for the kind review! I'm sorry for the late response!

Wow - this is my reaction to all your reviews. You flatter me so much! Thank you!

Aw I'm sorry you're upset. Dom indeed has gone through a lot, and I'm glad you feel for her. I'm also happy you like Teddy's love for her.

I definitely get stressed out writing canon characters too so it's a relief to know you liked my writing of them!

I'd say the chief werewolf is very frivolous in a way, or pompous xP

I hate her too, haha.

Thank you so much for all your lovely reviews. You're awesome!

Review #30, by ScoroseOTP More Bad News

28th June 2015:
House Cup 2015, Hufflepuff here!

No! Not disappointed! That is literally the worst thing anyone can be at you. I can deal with angry, sad, everything but disappointed. It stabs me right in the heart every time someone feels disappointed in me. I can relate completely to Dom!

I just want to hug and squish Dom with every ounce of me! Her and Teddy are making my heart melt slightly. I love them. The connection they have is so strong, they know each other so well and that is making me feel all fuzzy!

Oh. Oh. So, I may or may not be experiencing a few tears in my eyes... I'm a bit sad about that. I've only known this Dom for four chapters but that news is hitting me in the heart. I cannot imagine being told I couldn't have kids. It would crush me! I love kids! And she does too, so I want to hug and squish her forever. The sister feels here are a bit too much for me to bear too, my little sister is my best friend and she'd be the first person I'd want to hold me after news like that, just like Dom.
So, I'm feeling all the feels, good job! Aim achieved!!

I'm afraid to know about the decision... I'm not sure I can handle it!

Author's Response: Hey again!

Aww yeah being disappointed is the worst yeah.

And I want to hug you on behalf of Dom and Teddy, and also for all your kind words.

I am glad you like the connection between Teddy/Dom.

Aww *hugs* I am sorry I caused you a few tears, but also strangely pleased xP Dom is indeed going through a lot and I'm glad you feel for her. And sister feels xx

Thank you so much!

Back again,
For the House Cup 2015, for Hufflepuff!

(I'm really enjoying myself though- just to let you know!)

Aww, normally I don't ship Teddy and Dom, but you're kind of winning me over. It was so sweet! I believed every twinkling word Vic said and I let go of Vic and Teddy being together just as Dom did. I don't mind going with the flow sometimes, it's good! It seems he cares so much, which is exactly what we want!

I'm feeling a very large amount of empathy for Dom here. I understand things are changing in society for werewolves. But this isn't just about that, this is her life changing so dramatically it's difficult to comprehend! Everything has to change, even if everyone promises it won't, it will. It's just a simple fact at this point!

Her boss, while, she was interesting, I didn't like her very much though. It's a delicate situation she's dealing with. Ms. Jones should care less about being sued and more about Dom! She shouldn't panic the poor girl! That's hardly fair at all!

Her connection to Teddy is beautiful. I feel that's all I need to say about that. I liked it!
Not so much him not smiling though... that doesn't inspire confidence...

Emz xxx

Author's Response: Thank you once again!

I am super happy you were enjoying yourself!

Yay! I am glad I am sorta winning you over with Teddy/Dom. I do love them. Going with the flow is the way to go sometimes, yes!

It's good to see that you feel for Dom especially with all her life changes.

and the boss, as we come to know later, isn't a very good character but I am pleased you got the vibe from her ;)

Teddy/Dom are my OTP so lovely to see you acknowledge their connection!

Thanks a ton!

Review #32, by ScoroseOTP The Worst Had Happened

28th June 2015:
Back again for the House Cup 2015 for Hufflepuff!

First off, I love how the chapter starts with the italics, it sets the mood for the rest of the chapter so well. Oh my stars there is so much tension coming on here my heart is beating faster! The effect you have here is fantastic!

If I have learned anything from studying Classical Literature, it is that fire is bad. Anything to do with the stuff is awful and you have used that powerful imagery very effectively here!

Wow. Again. I'm kind of lost for words. I mean, I guessed that something must of happened, something bad, she was bitten by a werewolf for crying out loud but the thought that we would be one didn't even cross my mind!

Her family's reactions seem perfect. I mean, these are Weasleys we are talking about, this people love more love than they could possibly posess. They know good and bad. They, before anyone on this planet would understand be right there to help. So, I understand the tears from Fleur and the comforting words from Vic and Teddy. They would all try there best no matter what!

Dom's reaction... I also understand. When something bad happens, I'm the same, it's a horrible trait to have but it is so easy to look at the negatives! She just turned into a werewolf finding the positives there, has got to be hard! And pushing people away, it would be easier than facing the facts at that moment, because everyone had just changed for her, way more than anyone else!

I'm looking forward to the next chapter!

Author's Response: Thank you once again for your kind words!

I am glad you enjoyed the chapter and liked the beginning.

Fire is bad haha xD

I am so happy I rendered you speechless (of sorts).

It's a relief that her family's reactions are perfect for you, thank you.

And that you understand Dom's reaction too. Your reviews make me so happy! Thanks!

28th June 2015:
Here for the House Cup 2015 as a Hufflepuff!

Wow. Let me just start with that.
It's such an interesting topic. Werewolves!

I love that you chose Dom, I really do. She's such a good pick.

because I've seen so many variations of this girl, it's always interesting which one a writer will choose and where they will go with it. I like her as a Ravenclaw, and I personally love the idea that she's a journalist, it follows on from Ravenclaw very well.

because she has so many potential ways to be connected to werewolves! That you have quite rightly reminded us in the first chapter. She has her Dad and Teddy, both with connections to the fearful creatures.

Quick note- I cannot help but feel so happy that you've mentioned Hermione and here help towards werewolves and their position to society. I LOVE THAT.

I love the ambiguity of saying "one of the kinder werewolves". I just figured they were all good now old Voldy was gone! But I guess, there is bad in all of us, it is possible that bad werewolves still exist! As much as I wish they didn't!

The end of this chapter is so effective! The yellow eyes have me hooked and her screams, the way she is no powerless really brings an understanding of the character to the audience. She has every right to be afraid!!

Emz xxx

Author's Response: Hey! Omg you have no idea how happy your review makes me!

I am glad you think Dom is a good pick and that you love her as a Ravenclaw plus a journalist. Her base personality kind of stems from my own so I am happy you're liking her!

And yes she does have many connections to werewolves. Of course i had to weave in Hermione somewhere here xD She makes an appearance later too!

Indeed, Voldemort was not the only bad wizard, there're always grey characters around, so i am glad you picked up on that.

I am happy the ending was effective too. thanks a ton!

Review #34, by Pixileanin From Bad to Worse

27th June 2015:
Ahem. House Cup 2015

On with the review!

Oh goodness, David Dale is here to "do something" for her? Yeah, right.

Uh oh. Teddy loves showing up at the wrong time, doesn't he. These two just don't get a break. In all the drama, I do like that you've used David in what seems to be an important role in this story and not allowed his character to just be background noise. I thought you might have something special in mind for him and you didn't disappoint

Oh no! Julia should absolutely not have done what she'd done. I had a very strong feeling that she'd DO something, but this was completely inexcusable. I can't think of a circumstance under which what she did would even be considered "the right thing to do for your friend". These characters have a horrid way of not discussing things with each other. It seems that a lot of their issues would be fixed with a bit of honest communication. Drat!

And then Dominique decides that things are unfixable. Well, that's not a good thing. Julia better fix things, or else. That's what I have to say on the matter.

Such drama in this chapter! I hope these characters figure out how to talk to each other before the end of the story.

And, erm... when is that next chapter coming?



Author's Response: Thank you for reading and reviewing! I'm glad you liked this chapter. I'll try and update ASAP!

Review #35, by TidalDragon From Bad to Worse

27th June 2015:
Howdy! I figured this would be the perfect opportunity to catch up on the latest installment of your story, so here I am!

I definitely liked the range that this chapter displayed, particularly as pertains to Dominique's emotions. Though the situation you created with Julia's scheme obviously drove that to a degree, we really got to see how the tension between trying to be strong and admitting her own fragility can send her into a whirlwind of emotions in a short time from hollowness to begrudging acceptance to pain to fury. In a way I think it's even more fitting that it came from machinations of others to try and improve here life because it fits very nicely with a big part of the whole werewolf problem - people trying to decide FOR them without necessarily CONSIDERING them or their stances on the ideas put into motion.

I also enjoyed the characterization of David Dale. His dress and manner were very befitting his aims of convincing others (including Dominique) that werewolves can be quite civilized (contrary to popular prejudice).

I did think things moved a bit fast throughout from scene to scene and person to person so that everything wasn't as fully fleshed out as it could've been and we missed some of the great description that opened the chapter.

In any event I'm glad to see you updated again!

You incredibly wonderful person, leaving me all those lovely reviews. ♥ This review is for me to say thank you! (And also because I'm so excited to see another chapter on this story!!!)

This was a really surprising chapter. I couldn't think of who had written that letter - and Julia is probably the last person I would have guessed. I also don't know how Julia could possibly have thought that plan would work, since it depends on so many things happening exactly as she wants them to and life just isn't like that. *headdesk* Regardless, I'm glad the girls made up again afterwards and that they're still on good terms because I don't think Dom can lose anyone else just now, especially not her best friend. Though... I am a bit nervous to see how Julia will resolve the situation, or whether she'll muck it up even more :p I am really curious what Julia will end up saying to Teddy to explain it all, haha.

Ah! I need to know what happens! This is a great chapter and I can't believe there's only one left. You've done a wonderful job on this story so far and I'm so eager to know how it ends.

Author's Response: Aw, thank you for reading and reviewing! I'm glad you liked this chapter and hope you can read more!

6th June 2015:

You are the last on my list and then I can sleep! :D

I can't believe that it's been so long since I read the first chapter of this, I really thought that I had read and reviewed more of it.

Poor Dom! Going through such pain! I want to help her so badly! :(

And she's woken up in the hospital, without much memory of what happened.

Oh phew, it's just a spell, I really thought that she had lost the ability to speak. That would have been even more heartbreaking.

Oh no! What's happened to her? It's got to be a werewolf that attacked her and now she's one. That's what I think! I'm sad about Fleur's reaction, but I understand why. I just want to hug them all! They all deserve hugs and love! *squishes them all*

Oh Dom, I would react like that as well if I found out. And I agree so much with your version of Harry not telling Teddy about the bad things about Remus. Harry doesn't like to be mean.

I hope that this is just her anger talking, and that she doesn't distance herself from her family. She's going to need them so much. I can't help but wonder what Louis' reaction will be.

I can't wait to read more chapters, Angie. This is such a wonderful story, and you are such a brilliant writer, you really got the families emotions over so well. I can't wait to read more of your beautiful work!

Review #39, by MargaretLane From Bad to Worse

31st May 2015:
Really pleased to see another chapter of this up.

The "owing to at least a day's notice" sentence seems a little odd. Something like, "as he usually gave her at least a day's notice" might sound better.

Great! Things between Teddy and Dominique have now become even worse.

That part about "I absolutely had no intention to" sounds a bit odd too. Something like "I'D ABSOLUTELY NO INTENTION OF IT" might sound better.

I can imagine Dominique would be angry at whoever sent the letter. It was a really strange thing to do and made things even worse for her. I REALLY didn't expect anything like that to happen. I thought things would start getting better for Dominique now.

I really like the way she recognised Julia's handwriting. That doesn't happen much in stories and it SHOULD.

Gosh, that is a stupid and insensitive plan. There were WAY too many ways it could go wrong. And it's really unwarranted interference in Dominique's life. It's obvious she's trying to help, but what a way to go about it.

I really hope things between Teddy and Dominique get sorted out in the end. And I've a feeling they will.

This chapter really surprised me. I would NEVER have expected Julia to have been the one to send that letter. Or for that to have been her reason. Poor Dominique. It seems like everything is going against her.

Author's Response: Thank you for reading and reviewing! I'm glad you liked the chapter, and that you're invested in the story.

Review #40, by The Ten Plagues of Egypt #4 : Wild Animals Dreading The Worst

3rd April 2015:
I come with flame and sword to render judgement upon the houses of Hogwarts.

And Lo there shall come ten plagues visited upon the stories of HPFF; behold the third plague as swarms of wild animals descend upon your houses…

… modern interpretation suggests that the older interpretation of wild animals was incorrect and the ‘swarms’ reference indicates flies, but for the purposes of fit, I have chosen the original interpretation.

The eye of judgement has fallen upon:

The Worst


Dominic Weasley is a good choice for those authors who want to delineate the adventures of a next generation female Weasley, but do not want the associated baggage that comes with selecting either of the girls of the golden trio.
Established early and well is the character of this particular Weasley as too is her place within the setting. The playing off of her steadfastness compared to her bravery against the setting of her sorting is well done.

The titular description is made clear when we discover that the ‘Worst’ refers to her decision making in general and that tonight’s poor example of it will be the one that will become the worst decision she has made in her life. Given the setting, the reader fears what this is going to entail. All for the notes in a journal – a journal that will no doubt still be there and intact after the danger has long passed. Hindsight and reader insight will do nothing to avail her.

The lack of her ability to apparate out of the shack in which she finds herself, speaks of pre-meditation upon someone’s part. As the reader who continues on with this story after this first chapter shall see, the search for whom did this to her forms the main thrust of the story to come.

She makes another poor decision to leave the safety of the shack to try to sneak out to apparate away. Wouldn’t she have been safer barring the door and riding out the ‘storm’ from within? Though this decision is not so cut and dried as the first, if she could have just slipped away …

But awaiting her, just outside, is literally the jaws of doom.


A well-established character in a well-established setting. The mystery of who could have doomed her to this fate, as well as what becomes of her, is sure to draw a reader in and keep them invested in the story to come.

Review done for the Ravenclaw, spread the Easter Cheer challenge.

Author's Response: Hey! thank you for doing this anonymous review thing AND thank you for choosing to read and review this story. I am pleased you liked this over all (at least I deduce that from your analysis). Thank you for the kind judgement and for the in-depth analysis.

Review #41, by Pixileanin Settling

4th March 2015:
Hi! I'm back for your last posted chapter, finally.

Dominique's transformation was appropriately wolfish. I thought you did a nice job with the description of the process. I was surprised to see that the wolfsbane acted like a sedative, in addition to keeping her mind human. I never thought if it working that way. Interesting concept.

The aftereffects of the transformation were interesting too. It makes sense that Dominique's body would be upset by the changes and not react so well the first time, and maybe even the first few times. The way she reacts to herself in the mirror, well let's just say that she still seems like she's not ready to face what she has become.

I like how you show us Julia's relationship with Dominique here. It almost feels like Dominique would have been in a better place if Julia had been around earlier. She warms up to her friend a lot faster than she has to practically anyone else. Julia seems to be the confidant that Dominique may need to come to terms with things.

"Are you better now?"

I cringed at that line from Victoire. After all the denial, that's probably the last thing that Dominique needed to hear right now. I was so afraid that she would keep up the act of being "fine" when she still had so much to work through. I can't tell you how relieved I was when Dominique actually talked about what happened with Teddy. I think that was an important discussion to have, and none of it felt like filler to me.

I really liked the last scene. She's settling into something that looks like "normal", and then BAM, something unexpected happens.

So, um, yeah.

Next chapter?

Author's Response: Hey! Thanks a lot for reading and reviewing! I am glad you liked this =)

I am pleased you liked the transformation and its aftermath. I was a little worried about it but your comments make me happy.

Julia is definitely someone Dominique heals faster around. Best friends after all =)

Haha yes Victoire is a bit clueless on what to say in such situations. Dominique I feel has come to terms with most of this by now and shall at least talk to two of the closest people - Vic & Julia about it.

I am glad you're enjoying the story. i'll try my best to update soon! Thanks!

Hi Angie! I'm here for the Slytherin Review Tag, and since I've been wanting to read another chapter of your story, I decided to get two birds with one stone (or whatever they call it).

This was a really interesting chapter! So much was going on, with them having a talk with the boy who bit her, and then confronting her boss with the truth. I'm excited to see what happens next.

Hey Aditi!

It's nice to see a new update on this fic. I
was beginning to think you'd abandoned it and
you had me worried because it's far too
compelling to be left hanging like that.

I'm here with you're requested review, by the

Anyways, the flow of this chapter is good;
you've got a few separate scenes, but they
smooth together neatly, meaning it's not clunky
or jumpy, so kudos for that.

The pace is good too. After the build up to the
full moon, it's nice to finally have it arrive
and then have it over. I like the way you
captured the relief that Dom would be feeling
in that kind of instance to have it over and
done with the month.

As always, the quality is good, and I'm
intrigued by the cliffhanger at the end there.
Please update again soon so I don't have to sit
around gnawing my nails wondering what he wants
and whether or not he intends to seduce her
away from Teddy. I hope her and Teddy can work
things out eventually too.

Keep it up!


Author's Response: Hey! There's no way I'm giving up on this story. I tend to go long periods of time without updating because I get so swamped with work but I'm definitely seeing the story through the end =)

IknewitIknewitIknewit. The moment Dom began to think of how weird the whole night was, I immediately thought of her boss, how "understanding" she was, and how she talked about the personal touch too quickly in the conversation. Ugh. I cannot believe it. Mad woman.

I really enjoyed reading this chapter, and I loved how supportive Fleur was. Of course, it's her child, but still, she used to be so delicate in the past. I suppose Bill really did make her somewhat normal. Not that she wasn't normal before, but you know what I mean. I hope...

Loved this chapter, and I'll read the next sometime during this week!

Author's Response: Haha she is definitely a mad woman, and we'll see more of that madness in the upcoming chapters. I am pleased you liked this chapter too =) Yes Fleur has definitely matured a lot, after all she is a mother to a twenty-two year old now.

Review #45, by Lululuna Settling

4th February 2015:
Hi again! :)

Ooh, off topic but that chapter image is amazing!

The beginning passage was so well written. I really liked how the scene was set externally from Dom originally, it really made it suspenseful and even more tragic at how isolated she is in her pain. I think that turning into another creature would really be such a strange, disturbing experience and you really did a good job of showing that here.

I also thought the descriptions of the morning after her transformation were great and showed what a horrific situation it is. In the HP books Lupin really clearly shows the physical affects and I liked how it affected Dom so much as well, it felt very true to canon.

It's nice that Dom's family and friends are there to support her, though. I think she has very good points about how her and Teddy have grown apart, and while perhaps they still have a chance at making things work since they still love one another, I still think he needs to see that her rejection of the proposal is about where she is in life more than anything. While I can sort of see where he's coming from, he still definitely owes her an apology, in my book. :P

Ah, I'm trying to remember who Dale is but I'm not positive. Hmm. Potentially he's linked to journalism, or some sort of werewolf research?

I didn't think this was a filler chapter at all, particularly with the first section. I really enjoyed it! :)

Author's Response: Hey there! Aha all credit goes to the lovely TDA artist who made the fabulous image, but thank you!

I am happy you liked the way I started the scene externally - it was something I decided on after a little debate with myself.

I added in the descriptions of the aftermath later (after writing the first draft) so it's a huge relief to know they work well with the plot and Dom.

Dom's family and friends are always by her and the main point of this story is to show that she can overcome "the worst" with her loved ones by her side, so I'm happy you liked that bit too. Teddy definitely owes her an apology, and Dom owes him an explanation. Both have stuff to talk about!

As for Dale, we'll see in the next chapter =) Thank you!

Hello!! :) Here for your Hot Seat review, and it's great to get back to Dom's story!

I was so intrigued about this chapter and the moment when she would finally turn into a werewolf. After all, these transformations are going to really affect her life and the first one of those is so important. It was really interesting seeing her prepare mentally and physically - I'm glad Hermione was organized to help take care of her!

I agree with Dom that Teddy is being very selfish. Gah, he annoyed me so much in this chapter. :P He's making it completely about him when she's about to go through a further trauma, it really doesn't seem fair. He's acting like a brat. :P

I really liked the description at the end, and how vivid and ominous it was. Poor Dom, I really do connect with her and feel bad for what she has to go through. I think you did a great job of highlighting the isolation and loneliness of her transformation: it's really something that she's been forced to face on her own.

This was a really interesting chapter! :D Great job!

Author's Response: Hey! Thanks for reading and reviewing! I am pleased you liked this chapter. Aha Hermione is always the rational person!

Teddy is being a bit selfish, that's true. We'll explore more of his attitude in the next chapters.

I am pleased you liked the descriptions too and that you can connect with Dom. Thank you!

Review #47, by crestwood The Worst Had Happened

4th February 2015:
Hi Aditi! I've wanted to come back here and leave some hot seat reviews all week but college has not been nice to me at all. Nonetheless, I'm here now and can finally continue with this story.

Your descriptions within the flashback at the beginning of the chapter were excellent. The entire paragraph had a vaguely nightmarish feel to it, which I think was the intention, considering that she thinks it was just a dream.

I really like the irony of Dominique of all people becoming a werewolf. She really seems to fear them more than anything. In fact, I'm actually kind of shocked that she went on such a rant about them in front of Teddy. She definitely isn't going to take this very well.

I'm really glad her family is all so supportive because that gets rid of one potentially horrible turn of events right there. Of course, there's still everyone else to worry about and, the way things seem currently, herself. This is going to be some serious angst as she adjusts to being the very thing she dislikes so much.

I think you're really shedding light on some interesting perspectives on lycanthropy here. I haven't read many werewolf stories and when I have, it's always been from Remus' point of view, so seeing it from a totally different character is intriguing.

This chapter was really awesome and I think that enough people love this story to make it pretty obvious that you keep it up throughout. I'll make sure to come back this weekend and give you more reviews to make up for not getting as many done as I would have liked to for the Hot Seat. Anyway, amazing work!

Author's Response: Thank you once again for reading and reviewing!

I am glad you liked the nightmare in the beginning - it was more of that than a flashback.

Dom definitely fears werewolves more than normal people.

I am pleased you like the way I've written the family's support and stuff too. Oh yes, there's some serious angst happening.

It's a huge compliment that you think enough people love this story - thank you! I hope you can continue to read forward sometime soon =)

Review #48, by Rumpelstiltskin More Bad News

4th February 2015:
Hey there!

This is an excellent chapter! You've described Dominique's sufferings beautifully, and I wasn't certain that suffering could be beautiful. Of course, it's understandable that she's dealing with an enormous amount of complex feelings that are making her push people away from her, but she really does need somebody at the moment to help her deal. Which is why it's fantastic that Teddy's around -- no matter what :D.

Hopefully she's able to open the lines of communication between herself and her mother and sister again. And, that's absolutely true, having to continue to write that article is completely unfair! The amount of emotional distress it will have on Dom is reason enough for not having to do it, but, no, they just want the stupid story *twitch*. (Sorry, got carried away there.)

It's also absolutely freaking devastating to hear that she can't have children because of her condition. I never thought of Lycanthropy like that for females, where the process would interrupt the ability to bear children. It's a clever and heartbreaking twist on your story!

The decision? Oh man...that's a mean place to leave off a chapter! I'll try very hard to squeeze another review in before the day is up!


Author's Response: Hey! Thanks for reading and reviewing!

I am happy you liked this chapter and found my description and all good. Teddy is just amazing, isn't he.

Yeah I know, I'm kinda mean to put Dom through so much stress but hey it's not called The Worst for nothing xP

Thank you so much for your wonderful comments!

What in heaven's name have you done to Dom?!
Oh my god. This is getting too exciting! And terrible. Both. Very intensely mixed. It's probably a bad mix.

So I'm here for the Slytherin Review Tag! Yeah, I know - first review: Review Exchange. Second and third review: Hot Seat, and now? Review Tag. But I need to bump it up, man. It looks a little dull lately :)
But I promise my next reviews are from the Hot Seat.

You make me fall in love with Teddy. I was so relieved to read that he didn't want to break up with her. He's such a good, and caring boyfriend! And he loves her so much, with constantly holding her, kissing her, reassuring her. You make me miss my boyfriend even more... and I won't be able to see him until June or July. Damn you, Aditi! *shakes fist* You make my heart bleed.

I need to find out what decision she makes! And if she's pregnant. She has to be pregnant, otherwise it wouldn't make any sense in having a Healer come by with that anatomy lesson.

By the way, I totally read Healer Smith as Will Smith. Haha!

Author's Response: Haha I'm pleased you're still enjoying the story! No matter where the review comes from, I'm just glad to receive your lovely reviews.
I am glad you like Teddy too. As for the decision, you'll have to see.
Thanks for reading and reviewing!

Review #50, by Lostmyheart Reflecting and Brooding

2nd February 2015:
PLEASE DO NOT MAKE TEDDY BREAK UP WITH HER!! I beg you, please! *gets down on my knees to beg*

I really, really hope he doesn't. It would make it even harder for her, to live a normal life after that. Being bit by a werewolf AND endure a break-up?

I really don't like her boss, but at the same time, I can imagine a boss in a newspaper company would be distant and cold sometimes. A job is a job-kind of attitude. "Personal touch" my ---. Hmpf. I'm surprised Dom handled it so carefully. It impressed me.

So far, I am really enjoying your story. It's been ages since I've read a werewolf related story. The last one was Rumpel's christmas story, which scared the bejeezus out of me!

I love your story! And I can't wait to read more of it.

- Avi

Author's Response: Aww don't worry they won't break up. I can tell you this now because you already have read the next chapter xP But as to what happens in the even later chapters, I can't say ;)
As for her boss, we'll see what she is up to xP

Thank you for reading and reviewing!
