Hey! I love your story Author's Response: Hey! Thank you! Report Review
my heart just broke when realized this was the last chapter u have. i was so into this book lol u have no idea. so i decidedto wait tilll the end to review becaue m viewskeep changing. but now i can full heartedly say alex is a not so nice word james is a love sick puppy jett is alove sic puppy as well, love the name by the way and aria well she just makes me so mad. like make up ur mind womwn! anyway love the story :)Author's Response: Ahaha, I'm sorry that my lack of chapters broke your heart :3 All of your descriptions are very accurate, so nice job getting the views right. Aria does need to make up her mind, but it's more about not hurting anybody than anything else. Thanks for the review! Report Review
I am really sad. I really like Jett, but it is extremely clear that Aria and James just fit together. They're drawn together in a way that is right. I really don't want Jett and James' relationship to be ruined, especially over a girl, but Jett has to see that Aria doesn't return his feelings and he should want to be with someone who will. I don't like that Aria has been pretending to be a good girlfriend to Jett though when she really just wants James.
As much as it will hurt, I hope they can all be honest with each other. I love when James told her to break up with Jett. Ughh I'm so conflicted I really like them both!! But James is a better fit. Please make it ok for everyone in the end! I'll stop going on and on and wrap it up.
I really like your writing. It's really really great (you must know that already) and even though the plot is making me so bummed right now I would read this story over and over and over because you write so well and I never want to stop reading. Update when you can, good luck with college! (someone definitely needs to tell your professors that you have an important fanfiction to update, and they can give you your midterms some other time, like maybe never)Author's Response: I'm sorry :( I really like Jett as well, but as you say, it's clear that he's not meant to be with Aria. And everyone but him sees that. By the way, James would never forgive himself if he lost Jett's friendship over anything. And he really would hate himself if it happened over a girl, in case that tells you anything ;)
They all really do need to be honest. Things are too screwed up to keep messing around. They're just digging a deeper hole, and it's about time they got out of it.
Thank you! :D I'm so glad you like it so much! No, seriously, that means the world to me. So thank yoouu ♥ (And the professors should definitely cut me a break because it's not like I'm at college to learn or anything, haha.) Report Review
I REALLY REALLY REALY LOVE THIS STORY!!! Please please update soon... I can't wait!!Author's Response: AND I REALLY REALLY REALLY LOVE YOU FOR LOVING THIS STORY!!! I will try to update soon... Thanks for the review!! Report Review
What a brilliant chapter, took long enough! only joking, I know what collage is like - absoloutley manic, anyway, during the first few paragraphs I couldn't stop thinking of Katy Perry's song -thinking of you, you should honestly give it a listen, it made me cry the first time I listened to it, and it kinda fits in with the story, because there is nothing Aria can do, either way she is hurting someone.
Finally! They are back to talking, and secretly I'm hoping the Jett breaks up with her for being so distant so that it's not as hard for James, because it was Jetts decision.
I absoloutly love this story because I swear you have taken a chunk out of my life and put it into this story, it makes me laugh how ironicly close it is, even down to the name James.
Anyway, thanks for a lovely story and I know it's tricky but pretty please try to update soon 8-)
SoraAuthor's Response: Ahaha, thank you! And sorry about the wait! You know what's funny? That's actually the song I was thinking of when I was writing the first bit of the chapter. Brain twins! :D
Yes! They are /finally/ speaking again. But I'm not telling anything about Jett's decision - you'll just have to wait for that!
Really? Haha, I swear I didn't steal your life! And I'm sorry that you have to deal with this - it's really not a pretty situation to be in.
Thank you for the lovely review! Report Review
omg omg omg omg omg omg
yes yes YES! well actually not much happiness because Jett is going to be heartbroken - although, by the way things ended in this chap, i kinda have a feeling that Jett knew what was coming, and anticipated it. Like he knew 'deep down' that aria wasn't his to keep.
james/aria have to be the cutest thing since penguins.
ohh and i really like this quote :
"He kind of turns into a manwhore," Fred adds solemnly. "His main pick up line is 'Hey. I'm James Potter.'"
"And the sad thing is that it works."Author's Response: :D :D :D :D :D :D
Yes, indeed! Well, I'm making no comment on the state of Jett's heart because it would ruin the next chapter and all the suspense that I've set up. So yeah. But all very good guesses.
PENGUINS. I LOVE PENGUINS. THEY'RE MY FAVORITE ANIMAL. GAH. ♥
Hehe, I like that quote too :D
Thanks for the review! Report Review
you. make. me. feel. so. conflicted.

UPDATE. SOON. PLEASE. college professors are silly, do they not know that you have a great fanfic to update?Author's Response: i. apologize. for. my. conflicting. writing.

Great chapter! And Aria finally admitted that she will break up with Jett so that she can be with James. And James admitted that he wants Aria to be with him instead of Jett. Finally! And Jett coming in at the end.. Hilarious... Anyway please update soon!Author's Response: Thank you! And yes, they both admitted things that they should have said a looonnnggg time ago. Thank you for the review! The next update should be coming soon! Report Review
Okay, so first I can say that this chapter didn't make me sad - yay! That's good. I hate being sad. It didn't exactly make me happy - I mean, it sort of did, but not completely - but we're getting there.
I think that, in her own special way, Aria is very selfless. She drives herself to insanity and near depression just to try and make other people happy. Rather than going after James and letting him know she loves him, she hides it and dates Jett because she knows it'll make Jett happy and that then she won't ruin the friendship of James and Jett. But she's taking it to a point that's too extreme. While there's nothing wrong with being selfless - in fact, it's encouraged - you can't do it to the point that it makes you unhappy. And that's something that Aria needs to learn.
Oh, James. That's really all I can say. Oh, James.
As awful as it may sound to say this, PLEASE tell me that Jett and Aria break up. They just aren't right and it drives me insane because Jett needs to find a nice girl that loves him too and that (yeah this sounds bad) is actually good enough for him. No offence to Aria, I do like her character (though she irritates me at times), but as I've said, Jett is too perfect and doesn't quite have the capacity to understand her issues. So it's time for him to move on.
Lovely chapter, my dear, I believe things are really starting to look up. EXCEPT for that stupid letter from Ryan. He needs to be punched in the face. But I absolutely LOVED Adam. Cheers.
-LauraAuthor's Response: I am so very late with the answering of this review. And I apologize profusely. I have been so ridiculously busy... Sigh. Anyhoo.
Yay! No more sadness! Woohoo! Progress is being made! I'm glad to hear it ;)
Yes. This. You are very right. She /is/ a selfless person. Sometimes she can be very selfish, so she tries to counteract that by taking things to the other extreme which isn't very good. She thinks that she's an awful person for acting selfishly sometimes, but that's not true at all. It's just human. Striking a balance is what she needs to learn.
JAMES. DAT BOY.
I can't tell you anything! You know I can't! And yes, Jett does deserve someone better. I know exactly what you mean and I agree. They're not exactly on the same level (?). Or on the same wavelength. They're not a good match, so he deserves someone that /is/ good for him.
Thank ya ;) Ryan's stupid, but his letter is kind of important in terms of character growth. You'll (hopefully) see what I mean in the next chappie. Yeah.
Cheers, and thanks for the review! ♥ Report Review
omg this story is so amazing but please break them up! I really want aria and james to get together because they love eachother! they've messed around too much. your story is so good so please update soon! :)Author's Response: Haha, thank you!

Yes you do need to talk and it should go something like.
"I want you to be happy. Date James. Be happy."
But that's not going to be it at all is it?
Super stoked on the new chapter. Thank you.Author's Response: Haha, I'm sure many people would like for them to have that little chat. I'm not saying whether you're right or wrong, though. You'll just have to wait :P

I did cry in the last chapter. The last few chapters actually. But it was really well written angst and I think I cried because I could relate to the way guys made Aria feel worthless. I like stories that can make me feel something as strongly as this did so good job! It's my favorite story.Author's Response: Awww I'm sorry D: (for making you cry and for answering this review so late). But I'm glad that you feel like you can relate to Aria - that's essentially the goal. And wow, your favorite story? Thank you so much! Report Review
Ohh. My. God. Wow. Such a good chapter. I can't believe Jett is doing that! He is so stupid. And so typical teenage boy. I absolutely love all of the stuff with James, and how Aria just knows that she loves him, an the second when she realizes how REAL (capitals required) everything is...I want that. I love this story.Author's Response: Er. Meh. Gerd. Yes. Thank you. Jett's being quite the little idiot right now, but I still love him. He's an /adorable/ stupid teenage boy. Also, I think that's what true love is. When you just feel it. You don't have to think it through, it's just /there/. And I really want that. Thank you for the lovely review ♥ Report Review
I love this story! It has gotten a bit depressing lately, what with all the heart break and such, but sometimes things have to get worse before they get better, right?
It was really nice seeing Aria reconnecting with all her friends. None of them should have left her in the first place, but at least it turned out to be more of shock-of-the-moment thing with most of them. Dom...well, she isn't much of a best friend :/ but I suppose I can understand her not wanting to lose the guy she's in love with. Though if she doesn't think they can make it through an argument like that (that's not even between the two of them) then I doubt it would take much to split them up.
Albus and Louis are adorable (I'm definitely going to read your other story -I love him as a character.)
James is kind of dumb. But so is Aria in some ways. I can understand them not wanting to hurt anyone's feelings, but isn't it about time they realize its best to be honest? Aria just stands there, mute and dumb as a rock, while Jett opens up and shares his feelings. She doesn't even have the curtesy to tell him her own. After everything she put him through, she's now going to lead him on? Won't that just make it worse? It's not like she has to tell him she loves anyone else, but she can at least say that her feelings have changed. That she doesn't feel as strongly for him as he does for her, that she's not on the road to falling in love with him, but on the road to strictly platonic feelings.
In this case her feelings changed because of another person, but a lot of the time people's feelings change just because of time. It just happens. It would be more honest of her to tell him she wants to be friends and nicer because then he /could/ maybe move on and find someone else. It might actually help him with his relationship issues to have a relationship end well so that he doesn't have to fear them all ending badly.
I don't know how she's ever going to be able to be with James without hurting Jett, especially if he doesn't start seeing someone else first.
And James is a jerk for blowing her off because he can't control himself. As sweet as it is that he loves her so much, the boy needs to get a grip. How will life be any better for either of them if they just avoid each other? And what's up with the passive-agressive shots at Aria? He could've asked anyone else to Hogsmeade and he asks the one girl that made her cry. Jerk move. Then whenever something happens that hurts his feelings, he tries his hardest to hurt her back. I know misery loves company, but aren't you supposed to protect the ones you love from getting hurt? Why does he always have to get her back?
I guess that's not completely fair because he's maybe trying to get her to stop hurting him. And maybe he chose Grace because he didn't want to lead anyone else on and get anyone nice mixed up in their situation. It's just frustrating because they can all be so easily manipulated since they have such high strung emotions.
Which brings me to Alex. He makes a lot more sense now that you've explained where his hostility comes from. I like that he's not just a pure evil kind of villain. He's complex and he also has the potential to become good. I wonder if we'll ever see him become good?
Even though I sometimes hate how Aria and James handle things, I still love them both. They're absolutely adorable together and James is the sweetest thing, always getting mad for her and protecting her. I loved the scene in the captain's room. It's now one of my favorites up there with the scene in the library-lookout-hideaway-place. I'm glad Aria loves him too now :) I can't wait to see what they're like once they're finally treating each other right all the time ♥♥♥
Update soon :)Author's Response: I am finally getting around to answering this! I wasn't ignoring you, I promise! I've just been super busy -_-
Thank you! Yeah, I know, things haven't been happy-fluffy-goodness recently. But things will be changing. Soon. Hint-hint-wink-wink.
I agree - good friends don't just leave when something happens, no matter how bad it looks. But it was definitely much more a "shock" of the moment thing than anything else. Still, though, it's not an excuse. And you're right on about Dom. She's very insecure about her relationship, even if she likes to pretend that she isn't. She just doesn't want to risk it.
James and Aria are both dumb. Let us all agree on the fact. To anyone with a normal head on their shoulders, it would indeed appear that the time has come to just own up and be honest. Keeping secrets can be even more hurtful than just spilling the truth. And you're right, Aria didn't have to tell Jett everything, just that she doesn't feel the same way anymore. Time changes people and there's nothing wrong with that. But she's so... screwed up in the head right now that she isn't thinking clearly. She's thinking about the present and not the consequences down the road.
James has been a jerk lately, and I won't say it's justified (because it's not), but he does kind of have a reason to be upset. I will defend him, though, and say that he didn't mean to take a passive-agressive shot at her by asking Grace to Hogsmeade, although he did realize after the fact that literally any other girl would have been better. She was just /there/ and offered, and he was hurt and trying to move on. So that's that.
Alex may actually be my favorite character. Not because I /like/ him or anything, but because he's interesting. I really like thinking on the nature of good and bad and villains and heroes and such. Lots of food for thought in there. While writing him, I often have Two-Face from The Dark Knight in mind. Random, maybe, but applicable.
Haha, I know exactly what you mean. They're frustrating and crazy but I can't help but love them together. There's something that just clicks.

So sad!!! So much hurt going on. I'm so worried Jett will be so very miserable when he finds out Aria loves James and doesn't want to be with him. Maybe Jett can find someone else?
