AH BLOODY BRILLIANT. ahhh. Shameless promotions ftw indeed! In case you don't recognize my user (which I think is most probably the case), I am one of your many "Shenanigans" readers. I was intrigued when you mentioned it in your response to my review, and I /love/ Oliver Wood, so I just /had/ to read this. PLEASE UPDATE SOON THIS IS BLOODY BRILLIANT GAH.
I love Oliver. I really and truly do!Author's Response: AH THANK YOU. ahhh. I do recognize your user name, actually. And I remember writing my shameless self-promotion (ftw) in a review response to you. ANYWAY, I'm glad you read it because there is not enough love for Oliver :( GAH. Update is coming soon, I promise.
Sir, can I have some more?

this is so great! i can't wait to read more about the quirky little Lexi. i must say, Oliver Wood is one of my favourite characters and Oliver/OC fics are some of my favourites, so this will probably make it onto my favourite stories list soon enough/
update soon, i cannot wait to read more!Author's Response: Aw, thank you! I'm glad you like it :) Who doesn't love Oliver though? Hopefully I'll make it onto that list soon! Thank you for the lovely review ♥ Report Review
Wow, for some reason I totally expected it to be Danny that caught them having the 'fake boyfriend' argument, but I'm very glad it wasn't xD At the start of the story, I kind of thought it would be nice for Lexi to get with Noel, but you know what? I'm going to have to root for her to be with Ollie instead - properly, I mean xD I just can't help it; I'm Oliver/OC-obsessed, and proud! Can't wait for more!! :DAuthor's Response: Haha, 'tis okay that you thought it was Danny. A lot of people seemed to think it was :) I think Lexi thought it would be nice for Lexi to get with Noel... I don't think she would be too pleased with this Oliver business. But doesn't everyone love Oliver/OCs? At least I do... Thank you for yet another lovely review! :D Report Review
'My eyes, meanwhile, have for all intents and purposes popped out of my skull and rolled across the floor to a waiting Mrs. Norris, who then proceeds to bat them around with her paws. Lovely.' Hehehe, loved it xD
Loved this chapter, and normally I would be freaking out about that little cliffhanger there, but as I'm a latecomer to the story I get to go straight to the next chapter, woo! :DAuthor's Response: Haha, I really do love that bit :D
Lucky you for getting to read on! Woo is right! The cliffhangers of the world have been defeated!

My two favourite quotes, just so you know :) Another great chapter!!Author's Response: Yay! I love those quotes as well. You did a good job picking them. :D Thank you for the review! Report Review
I can't stop laughing at this, it's brilliant! Oliver is really great, and every time I see 'FrednGeorge' I can't stop smiling, haha xD Onwards to chapter 3!!Author's Response: Aw, thank you! Oliver is something, isn't he? ;) I hope you like chapter 3 as well! Report Review
Amidst my immense enjoyment of this chapter, I'm trying to figure out how the heck I haven't read this story earlier - I've been depriving myself of Oliver-related awesomeness :O Shocking stuff, better make up for lost time and carry on reading :DAuthor's Response: You're right, you have been depriving yourself. But at least you've fixed things now, haven't you? ;) I'm glad you've finally found your way to Oliver-related awesomeness - please continue to enjoy! Report Review
I like Lexi and Olive :)Author's Response: I'm glad; so do I :) Report Review
i loved it. It is so obvious that oliver likes her. 9/10 : )Author's Response: Haha, it's obvious, is it? :P Thanks for the review! Report Review
Thank you for updating! Really loving the story so far! Keen to read more soon!Author's Response: You're welcome :) Thank /you/ for reviewing! I'm glad you love the story! :D Report Review
In answer to your last little note, the grammar really wasn't terrible! And I love this story; I was happy that you finally updated!
Also, I had a bet with a few of my friends who read this story. The bet was about who heard Oliver and Lexi talking about the whole fake relationship thing, and they all now owe me five dollars each. Success. :DAuthor's Response: Oh, I'm glad the grammar was all right. I always worry about that when I don't have a lot of time to edit :/
Aw, your friends read this too? I'm so happy to hear that. And I'm also happy that you won the bet - spend that money well ;)
Thank you for another lovely review :D Report Review
Hahahaha, this was great! I have read this a couple times since you put it up but I haven't had the chance to review yet. This was great!! Yes, it did take long, but I'd rather have quality over quantity.
Noel... I can see him as just using Lexi. "Looking like he didn't want to discuss DTR" is a bad sign. (MTV's 'Awkward' reference, for all those Americans.) But he shouldn't. Because Lexi is amazing. At least Oliver can see it... *cough* That was so funny at the end. Also, the boys ogling Lexi was hilarious! I still want to see her turn around and not have Ollie boy call the offending gut friends out for her, though, just to see her reaction when she knows what's going on.
See you whenever you're feeling inspired! Good luck :)
CatAuthor's Response: Wow, you read it a /couple/ of times? *gasps* Sorry about the wait, but I'm glad you liked it.
Hmm. Interesting theory on Noel... but I'm not saying anything. You'll just have to wait and see. And I assure you that I have /no/ idea what you're implying about Oliver ;) As for Lex and the boys, that may be coming in a future chapter.
Hopefully I'll see you soon! Thanks for another lovely review, Cat :D Report Review
I love your story so far! Lexi's character is hilarious. And I think Oliver is adorable the way he's so obviously in love with her. Can't decide if I like Noel or not, but for now I guess he's tolerable. Rooting for the Oliver/Lexi ship though, of course. Can't wait for you to update, so please do soon! :)Author's Response: I'm glad you love it :) And I have absolutely NO idea what you're implying about Oliver... We'll find out about Noel soon enough, he may be good but he may also be bad. Thank you for the lovely review! Report Review
Oh. My. Gods. I LOVE THIS STORY. Author's Response: Aw, thank you so much ♥ Report Review
OMG i love it! She's so... matter of fact and fangirlsh; I just love her! And the story in general, of course (hilarious) Author's Response: Haha, I'm glad you love it! You seem to understand Lexi perfectly :D Thank you for the lovely review! Report Review
I just thought I should say: you have your years mixed up. You say that they are in 6th year, in the same year as Fred and George, in the same year as Oliver, have Lockhart as their teacher, and Percy is still at school. Let's just stop and compare, shall we? If they are in sixth year with F+G (who are only two years older than R+H+H), then R+H+H would be in fourth year, and thus the DADA teacher would be Moody and not Lockhart. But if they were in sixth year with F+G, Percy (who is two years older than F+G) would be in 8th year/out of school=not a prefect. Also, Oliver just so happens to not be in F+G's year; he was in fifth year in book one and Fred and George were in third (he's in Percy's year). So I think you should consider removing Percy from the story, changing the mention of the DADA teacher, making Oliver older, or making everyone in their year (minus Oliver) two years younger. Then everything would be perfect :)
Okay, you might want to just ignore what I said up there. I know it may have sounded mean, but it wasn't intended to be. You are really a superb writer and I can't wait to see where you go with it. I actually haven't finished the chapter yet (I got a little caught up reviewing) but I'm excited to continue reading. I love it so far! It actually seems like it has a plot, which can be hard to find on fanficiton sometimes :) You also don't have any spelling or grammar mistakes=ILY! You are a really good writer, and use mature vocabulary, and I am really enjoying reading your story. I can't wait to see where you go with it.Author's Response: Okay. First let me say that I really appreciate you taking the time to type out such a long explanation. It is very thoughtful and kind that you want to help me make my story better - I really do appreciate it. However (I feel really bad saying this because you put so much time into your review), my timeline is correct. I never said /anywhere/ that F+G are in the same year as Percy and Oliver and all them. In fact, I say in chapter 3 that there are four beds in the sixth year boys' dorms - Oliver, Percy, Andrew, and Justin. So I'm sorry if that was confusing for you, but I think you just assumed that I had them in the same year. People in different years can be friends though, yeah? So, just to clarify here: Oliver, Percy, Lexi, Chloe, Andrew, and Justin are sixth years. This means that F+G are fourth years, as they are two years younger than Percy. Therefore, R+H+H are second years and Gilderoy Lockhart is the DADA teacher. Don't worry, I have my timeline all figured out. I worked everyone's years out in a document before I started writing :)
I know you weren't trying to sound mean - I really do appreciate you taking the time to point something like that out. I'm really glad that you like it so far and I hope you continue to enjoy it as you read onward. I know I had fun writing it :D Thank you so much for the review, and I hope this helped to clear things up! Report Review
I love reading a good love/hate relationship! Life has disappointed me... never have I actually witnessed a relationship like that. :/ I am loving the story!Author's Response: Aw, I'm sorry that life has disappointed you :/ But I'm glad you love the story! Thanks for the review :D Report Review
i feel like noel has a hidden agenda. i dont trust him. and its so obvious that oliver actually likes her. i feel bad for him! please update again soon, i really love this story!Author's Response: Interesting thoughts on Noel... we'll find out about him soon enough. I'm going to try and update soon, hopefully I'm getting over the writer's block. Thanks for the review! Report Review
Firstly, I must congratulate you on another wonderfully written chapter. Oliver's ground rules are funny, mainly because he actually feels the need of various forms of physical harm; he knows her well, doesn't he? ;) And it's so funny how Oliver's friends all give away his secret to Lexi. His embarassment is obvious! And how can she be so oblivious? Why do I feel that Lexi's obsession with Noel is a bit (read: very) unhealthy? I can tell this will be a major plot advancer.
Andrew and Justin are great for a little comic relief. Their conversation, betting Lexi to Danny, and fear of Lexi was very funny to read.
'No punching, hitting, slapping, smacking, poking, pinching, or kicking... But wait! He didn't outlaw the bite! The almighty bite lives!'
'Huh? What's he going on about? I've been subdued because of dazzling, dreamy, dishy Noel, not because of stupid Oliver.'
'He's had it out for me since that incident in my first year. I mean, come on. It was only my first week in the castle! I got lost! I don't understand how that warrants six years of torture.
Okay, so it might have something to do with the fact that I kicked him in the leg after he gave me my detention.
I maintain that it was totally justified. He started it, God dammit!'
I think it was Danny who heard their conversation, maybe? I mean, it would warrant that reaction, right? I'm glad that I can just read the next chapter and won't have to wonder for weeks about it. (:
Great chapter once again!Author's Response: Aw, thank you. :D Yeah, Oliver does know her quite well, and I do think it's funny that the boy has to set up rules to protect himself from the girl. How manly of him. :p And I have no idea as to what you're referring to when speaking about Oliver's embarrassment and Lexi's obliviousness. Absolutely no idea ;) And perhaps you feel that Lexi's obsession with Noel is very unhealthy because it is, in fact, very unhealthy. We'll find out if it was indeed Danny in the next chapter ;p Thank you for another lovely review! Report Review
This chapter was just as hilarious as the previous two! Isn't it sad that I can actually imagine Oliver kidnapping someone to play Quidditch? :P Danny really is an utter creep, and I don't think Noel's much better, either. And the plot's moving on nicely.
Loved these lines:
'I answer him in a way that any sane person would: I bite his arm.'
'I frump in annoyance and glare at the grass below us. Stupid grass. Why does it have to be so bloody green?'
10/10!Author's Response: Yay for more funny chapters! I think the fact that you can imagine Oliver kidnapping someone to play Quidditch is more a reflection on Oliver's character than it is on you, so don't worry. I'll tell you that Danny /is/ a creep, but I'm not saying anything about Noel right now. You'll just have to wait to find out :D Thanks for the review! Report Review
Ok, so this chapter was as great as usual, but I have to say that I don't like Lexi/Noel. He seems a bit creepy, for some reason. Oliver, on the other hand is just too adorable (and obvious, too!)
Please update soon!Author's Response: Hm... well, we'll find out about Noel soon enough. But my lips are sealed for now. But Oliver is quite adorable, isn't he? As usual, thank you for the lovely review! Report Review
Hilarious chapter again! Loved the whole situation in the broom closet, and McG's assumptions of it! It didn't help that oblivious Oliver couldn't keep his mouth shut, either! And Lexi kicking Oliver! It's just too funny. Loved this part, too:
"Lex, I wouldn't do that if I were you," Fred says from in front of the fireplace.
"Yeah, Ollie might get jealous," adds George. "Didn't you two just have a little tÍte-Š-tÍte in a closet?"
"SNOG FEST!" FrednGeorge yell.
Chloe's idea for catching Andrew in the act made me laugh.
Anyway, I loved this chapter again. Keep up the good work!Author's Response: Yay! I'm glad you found the chapter funny :) The whole broom closet bit was fun to write. Ah, Oliver is so oblivious, isn't he? Thank you for the review! Report Review
Obviously, Lexi and Oliver should be together. Sorry Noel, but its like a James/Lily thing and he's just getting in the way. I can't trust him because he's best mates with Danny... I guess I'm team Oliver then :) Anyway, loved the chapter but not the long wait :( Please update all 3 of your stories soon!
As always, you please us. Keep up the good work :)
-LilyPotter your #1 fan :DAuthor's Response: Obviously? I don't know if it's obvious :P Hm, James/Lily comparison. Interesting. I never looked at it that way, but I guess I could kind of see it. We'll see if Noel's a good guy or a bad guy soon enough. I'm glad you liked the chapter, and I really am sorry about the wait. I'm trying here! Thank you for the lovely review, #1 fan!
P.S. I'm so excited that I actually have a fan :D Report Review
