Review #27, by apocalypse Chapter twenty-four - The Broom Closet Incidence

26th May 2014:
I have been waiting for months for you to update this! Even though I started reading this story back when I offered reviews, I've still followed it through despite deleting my review thread. I LOVE THIS STORY. I know you say that its your baby but for me too, its not anything less than that, trust me. I love Gwen and I love James too much to see something bad happen too him. You are an amazing writer and your words aren't just words, they are colours which paint the perfect picture on a canvas. Seriously, it is not easy for a writer to make their readers visualise everything they write but you do it so flawlessly, it's beautiful.

This chapter was one of the most well-written pieces of writing I've read in a long long time. The awkwardness, the hesitation, dude, it was absolute perfection. I've waited too long for this and you did it more than just justice. I hope you don't take as long as this one for the upcoming chapters because really, this was enough torture. :P

I think it's fair of you to make James go through somewhat the same feelings that Gwen went through. However, I do not know WHY he did it. I don't know why he kissed her and I think I'm just as confused as Gwen is. I don't think I saw it coming either. :P

Anyway. UPDATE SOON! :D I have missed this story more than I thought I had. I've written a review after SO long, I really hope I was of SOME help even when it wasn't really a critique but just random excited babbling. :P

But you write it so amazingly! I just hope Gwen and James get their heads on straight and realise that they need to properly talk and I think Gwen is being a bit unfair to Joshua. I think the nicest thing to do for him (in Gwen's POV) would be to break up with him and not go on this holiday thingo.

But mostly James and Gwen need to talk!

Anyway, this was a wonderful chapter! I can't wait to read the next one!

I have been waiting so long for this chapter and it didn't disappoint!! The kiss was perfect and the awkwardness was really well written. I hope that Gwen and James sort it out. Joshua is ok but he's certainly no James!!
Thanks for updating and please don't leave it so long again! Favourite story!! :)

Ah!!! I can't believe you'd do this to us!! I don't want the story to be over, but I really wish they'd just talk properly! I get that you're going somewhere with this, and I'm glad that you're doing it properly, rather than just giving into your readers, but I'm so darn impatient! Anyway, this is really well written, as always. I'm looking forward to the next one (hope it doesn't take 6 months!) :]

Author's Response: Thank you ^^

Haha, I know what you mean! I'm really impatient too when I read stories and wish stuff would just happen immediately (x

Next one will not take six months (x I can promise that, because it's already done, and I'm very happy with it. Although my readers might disagree... d:

But yeah, I'll update it probably after the weekend. I'm trying to get chapter 26 done before I put 25 in the queue, and hopefully avoid the long gaps between the chapters ^^

Review #34, by AIP Alexander Chapter twenty-four - The Broom Closet Incidence

21st May 2014:
Come on, you can't do this to us! You're tearing our hearts apart and dancing all over what's left of it! YOU MAKE VOLDEMORT LOOK LIKE A PUPPY LOVING SAINT ;O!!! We waited for 6 months :'( and you crushed our dreams about their relationship! Since I'm supposed to be paying attention to class I could only skim through the chapter but from what I could read i know things will get extremely awkward between them and that isn't right! James was finally admitting his feeling to her and she pretty much got him to think she was appalled of thinking him in a romantic way when she is head of heals in love with him! Joshua is such a nice guy and i can't help but hate him because he's unknowingly keeping them apart. Don't get me wrong, it's a brilliant chapter, but the long hiatus every other chapter is killing us with the cliffhangers you leave.
I once compared James and Gwen's relationship to Mistress's James and Avery's relationship in Breaking the Quidditch Code saying Gwen and James are as good, if not better than James and Avery, and i've had the firm belief Javery is the best James/OC relationship in this site. I reiterate my previous belief, but please don't keep killing us with the breaks! I can't help but cringe at the expected shouting match between them sometime in the future because we all know there will be some kind of argument because of the kiss. But i still want to kill them; their love for each other is just so obvious! Everyone else knows so, why can't they admit it to themselves!
I can't wait for the next chapter! Take care and KEEP. ON. WRITING!

Author's Response: I'm sorry! I knew the readers might not react to this twist in a positive way d: ((and they will hate me even more after the next chapter)) but sadly they are things that need to happen (: Gwen needs to grow up and realise that she needs to let other people in her life too and not just depend on James. Making this all rosy and cute now would quite certainly prevent that (x

I'm so, so sorry for the long wait though! Hopefully there won't be anymore delays as long as that. Can't promise that for certain though, I never know what my muse decides to concentrate on and I don't want to post anything I'm not completely happy with. But I CAN promise that the next update won't take five months! Because the next chapter is already done ^^ AND chapter 26 is shaping along quite well too!

That is such a huge compliment! I absolutely love Javery and adore Mistress's work! I hope I won't let you down ^^

Thank you so much for your lovely review!

Review #46, by maraudertimes Chapter one - Best Friends Forever

14th January 2014:
Hi! So sorry it took so long to get back to you!

Okay, so I was really intrigued by the summary of this story and needless to say, I was not disappointed.

The only thing that I would consider CC is there are a few typos - or I think there are. Should it be 'in the team' or 'on the team?' 'On' sounds better to me, although it could just be a matter of preference.

Other than that, this was actually quite sad. I really felt bad for Gwenny. The only people I ever fancy never actually talk to me, so I can only imagine how difficult it must be to be so completely in love with your best friend.

And although he seems to be saying that he loves her 'like a sister,' James isn't being very fair. Even if he doesn't know that Gwen loves him, all his flirty behaviours really shouldn't be appropriate. Although that might just be me talking since I know what's really happening 'behind the scenes.' Although, it does make me wonder whether anything is forced. Hmmm.

Anyways, I really loved the dynamic between Gwen and James. Even though they're out of Hogwarts, it's nice to see that their friendship hasn't been lost. Oh, that reminds me, how long have they known each other? Because (and this might be my fault for messing things up) you said they had known each other for eight years, yet James got her a present when she was 12. Seems fair, until the coach says that it's her sixth year on the team... Just something to consider.

But, all in all, I really liked this. It's a bittersweet story, and I really hope it has a happy ending, but I can't be sure. It's quite sad now, but in an interesting way.

Oh and I just saw your author's note about English not being your first language, and other than the 'on' 'in' situation, I honestly wouldn't have been able to tell!

So, to sum this up, this was excellent! I really like your style of writing!

Author's Response: Sorry it took so long to reply d:

Oh yes, I'm sure there are tons of typos and awkward sentences there. This is after all the very first chapter I've ever published!

Oh, I agree. James isn't being fair at all! And this is only the first chapter, he will only get worse d:

They've known each other for a little over fourteen years. I think I actually said that she's been in love with him for eight years - I need to check that to make sure - but I know that's what I meant. But thanks for pointing it out. I'll make it clearer.

Thank you so much for such a lovely review!

Review #50, by nott theodore Chapter twenty-three - Heaven. Or Hell.

1st January 2014:

This is possibly my favourite chapter so far, and that's saying something because I really love this story! Okay, I'm going to attempt to review this in an actual order!

I really liked the return to the problem of Gwen's dad at the beginning of this chapter, even though I love Gwen and James time - it was kind of nice in a way to be reminded that there are lots of things in Gwen's life that are darker and more serious than others. James, while it's adorable that he's so protective of her, is probably not helping the matter - in fact, in this chapter his over-protective nature was definitely on display. But in a way I think that Gwen's going to have to face the issue of her dad at some point, before she can move on and past it - otherwise it'll constantly hang over her and there'll always be a niggle of doubt in her mind.

The James and Gwen time immediately after that was really cute, and I was smiling all the way through it. I'm not sure if he was trying to flirt with her or just take her mind off things, but he is quite adorable when he wants to be. But Gwen is finally noticing that he's changing towards her and not just in general since he came back from Freddy's, and that can only be a good thing. Please tell me that's a good thing...

I loved the return to Hogwarts in this chapter, because it made me almost nostalgic of the way I felt reading the books (it's been a while since I re-read them). You paid a lot of attention to detail as well, which I really appreciated - like the fact that Gwen would be able to see the Thestrals, and because of that she notices other people's behaviour. The tour round Hogwarts was great too, and the line about the hospital wing made me laugh, because it definitely would be true! Another aspect I really liked was the way that you described them all going off to look at their old common rooms, and most of them headed off to Hufflepuff - it's only something really small, but it's nice not to see the Hufflepuffs all assumed to be rubbish at things like Quidditch. The way the Fat Lady treated them made me smile as well.

I really loved the idea of the different Quidditch players going to Hogwarts and offering a flying workshop for the students there. It's definitely a good thing for Gwen, I think, when she's starting to realise that the fans are actually people who she can interact with, not just distant strangers. The little girl that she coached was so cute, and it was lovely that she reminded her of Gwen when she first met Ginny. I wonder if the little girl will appear again in the story? I hope she makes it onto the house team!

And of course... the ending! I had such a big grin on my face when I first read it, and I had to go and read it again to make sure it had actually happened, and it wasn't just something I'd imagined! I loved the contrast between the start of the chapter and this ending, and I loved the way that you built up towards the kiss at the end! As James was leading Gwen through the halls of Hogwarts to escape the girls, I could sense that something was going to happen, but I didn't know what. Then when they were in the broom cupboard, I could see that James was building up his courage as he was talking to Gwen, and I'm so glad he finally did something! I'm fangirling a bit now, but I'm so happy that they finally kissed!

Unfortunately, though, I think that you might torture us a bit more and this won't end in the happy way I'm hoping - at least, not at the moment. Is someone going to open the broom cupboard and see them kissing - a reporter, maybe? Or maybe Gwen will panic about Joshua and ruin things... I'm not sure I can trust that everything's going to work out alright!

Another great chapter, and I hope that the next update is soon!

Sian :)

Author's Response: Hey, hun! Sorry it took me so long to respond to your lovely review!

Yes, you're right. His behaviour isn't helping at all.She will have to face her problems at some point, and she will have to do it on her own. But she hasn't realised that quite yet.

Haha, well. We'll see... but after 23 chapters you should already know me. Nothing is that easy (x

Thank you! I tried ^^ in fact I need to go back and edit that bit, for I was going to explain it in more detail that she could actually see the Thestrals, but I kind of forgot d:

Oh, I love the puffs! I hate it when people categorize them as stupid and idiotic, so I always try to lift them up a little. It's definitely my second favourite house!

I loved her too ^^ I can give you a little spoiler - yes, she will appear later too (:

Yes, finally! That was actually one of the first scenes I ever wrote for this story! I can't believe it took me 23 chapters to get to (x

Haha, see, you do know me (;

Thank you so much again!
