Review #26, by Irishseeker Breakfast for Dinner

6th October 2014:
Great chapter! I really liked seeing this side of James because it's so different from what we've seen of him before and it was really good. We see there's more to him than the too cool for school (oh god sorry) side we've been seeing.
Hugo and Addie's relationship just keeps getting better and better, like them going for runs together is just so cute and really shows how much they're there for each other.
Tarquin sounds interesting for sure and his name is very unique too, I like it. I'm thinking he must of had something to do with Addie's accident and she also had some romantic thing with him. A fling or an ex-boyfriend? Hmm hmm.
Ganymede, lol these names are just getting better and better. I'm guessing we're seeing more into the mission Addie was on that changed everything and seeing it from the beginning and the people involved in it?
I can't wait for the next chapter and great writing! :D

Author's Response: Hey! Thanks so much for your review, it brightened my day :D

I realized at some point that James' character needed more layers, hence this chapter. And Hugo and Addie's Hogwarts adventures are an absolute delight to write.

So, you probably have no interest in knowing this, but I'm gonna ramble about how I named Tarquin :p Around his introduction, I'd been reading Divergent and A Thousand Splendid Suns, their protagonists being Tobias and Tariq respectively. I decided I needed this new character to have a name starting with 'T'. But when days of trawling through the internet didn't turn up anything interesting, I hopelessly consulted my 10th grade textbooks. And voila! There was a reference to modest Lucretia, who had been raped by Roman tyrant Sextus Tarquin, in my copy of As You Like It. It seemed perfect, and thus was Tarquin named.

Ganymede's name also has a special significance, one which will be clarified in subsequent chapters. And let's just say, your guess might be spot-on or completely off. After all, someone is trying to kill James, yeah? ;)

Lots of love,

Review #27, by DancingMooncalf Breakfast for Dinner

6th October 2014:
I started to read this story yesterday evening and kept on reading well into the night, up to this chapter. I'm one of those readers that, when hooked on a story, will keep reading until there is nothing left to read.
And I am hooked for sure! I read the summary and the first line and I couldn't stop after that. It's to damn good to stop reading and That's why I need you to update asap!!!
I just really enjoy Addie's view on things and her way of dealing with James and James himself is an interesting enough character, bit of a spoiled thing, but I believe there will be more to that. And how about Hugo, lovely boy, I really enjoyed his presence as much as Addie and James.
I love the mystery you're creating with Addie's past and the supposed threat on James' life and stuff. It really kept me on the edge of my seat, wanting to know more and know I will in due time.
Loved the fluffyness of this chapter but I like the tension between James and Addie just as much. Gus is kind of right I guess, but we'll see about that later, won't we?
For now I just really really want to know more about the past of Addie, why she was suspended and what this Tarquin guy has to do with it. I also need to know why someone is after spoiled little James and how Addie will keep him in track if she gets high the first time she goes out with his group. She has to be more careful and professional than that.

Anyway, so yeah I love the story, I love how you write and I'll be checking my Currently reading box a lot more often to see if you updated the story! (but no pressure!)


Author's Response: Ohmygod, that reminds me so much of myself! It has happened too many times to count; i'd pick out an interesting book/fanfic to read and then have terribly itchy eyes the entire morning because I stayed up all night reading! :)

All I can say is, thanks so, so, so much! I write this story as it's an outlet for my creativity and overactive imagination, but I love it when a reader likes the way I write, the characters that I pore so much over, and moreover, deigns to tell me his/her thoughts. I'm eternally grateful to you for all that.

Addie's past, her recent spell of unprofessional behaviour (because believe me, it's recent as well as uncharacteristic), the Tarquin connection and the threat to James' life are all mysteries that'll be unraveled with time. Therefore, patience, good reader! :D

I hope I can live up to your expectations and you continue loving this story.

Have a great day, you wonderful person,

Review #29, by :) Breakfast for Dinner

5th October 2014:
I really so enjoy this story!! I always look forward to a new chapter. My only comment is that it seems like she should be a bit more... Competent, I guess, for an ex-auror? She seems like she's easily distracted and sometimes confused.

That's my only comment! Love the story. Update soon!

Author's Response: Yay, thank you! :) And I get what you're saying. As an Auror, Addie should seem more in control and professional, right? There's a reason for her distraction and confusion, however, and it ties up with what happened in her past. So, i'm afraid you'll have to wait to know. ;)

Cheers and chocolates,

4th October 2014:
Hi. I was just curious as to when another update will be? You have an awesome story and addy and James are pretty perfect together. They both have problems that they need to sort through together. And the suspense is real. Like what happened to addy? And who's after James? Anyway hopefully you can update soon I know school makes
Life crazy. I'm personally in 11th grade and it's pretty time consuming. Anyway keep up the great work!

Author's Response: Hello! Next update? Let's see. I'm hopeful it'll be pretty soon. I'm mostly free these days, plus the last chapter was rather filler-ish so I don't wanna make you guys wait too long.

You think so? Sometimes I feel I'm laying the mystery on too thick, being either too foreshadow-y or too vague. But nice to see it's working :-) And I know, right. Life takes a definite turn towards the suckish with 11th grade's arrival. But I'm (somehow) surviving ;D

Thanks muchly for R&Ring, love,

Review #34, by ShieldSnitch3 Pixiedust Delirium II

14th August 2014:

this chapter was like... so good. seriously. it's really, really well written (yes, even the magazine article)! i'm so jealous of the detail and imagery :O i mean, i've never been high either, but it certainly seemed very realistic! especially considering pixiedust isn't a real thing so we don't have much to compare it to...

anyway, super job and i can't wait for the next chapter! update soon!

-erin :)

p.s. i can't remember exactly who eliza is - was she mentioned in a previous chapter?

Author's Response: Eeep, the things this review does to my face! :D Thank you so much. I've always been a fan of great details and stuff, and so I tried to make this chapter as descriptive as possible.

Next chapter is being worked on, and i'll try to update asap.


PS. Eliza is a fellow teammate of James'. She's mentioned in ch 6. She's the one who was all eager to get to the nightclub and was rude to Addison before.

Review #35, by AlexFan Pixiedust Delirium II

7th August 2014:
I read this last night but I was far too sleepy to leave anything coherent so I'm back.

Okay, you may have mentioned Eliza in the chapters before this one but for the life of me I have absolutely no idea who she is or why she's important so it'd be great if you could refresh my memory a bit (but good for Eliza for being lesbian!) I am interested in finding out about Cliona and Tarquin and how they fit into Addies's past.

I'm kind of proud of James for taking Addie home and making sure that she was safe, but at the same time I really just want to punch James in the face for being kind of a jerk to Addie in the morning. I just wanted him to shut up the entire time that he was mocking her.

THAT IS WHAT YOU GET WHEN YOU DRINK SOMETHING WITHOUT KNOWING WHAT IS IN IT ADDISON YOU BETTER WATCH YOURSELF GIRL! This story takes place after 2020, come on now Addison, I imagine every girl is taught to watch what they drink when they go out.


Can't wait for the next chapter!

Author's Response: Ah, don't fret. The busiest two weeks of my life just ended and I just found time to respond to this.

Eliza is the Chaser of the English team, James teammate. She's also the one who called Addie a 'bossy hag' in ch 6. I suppose y'all forgot cause my update took so long >p sorry!

Cliona actually has nothing to do with Addie's past-they first meet in ch 6. She does, however, have a lot to do with Eliza's. And Tarquin plays an important role in Addie's life- past, present and possibly even future.

James was not a complete jerk! Only in the first half, granted, but I'm kinda proud of him too. And if he just kept being nice-ish to Addie, it would've seemed abrupt and uncharacteristic. But things'll improve (eventually).

All I'm going to say at this point, Addison, you incredibly foolish girl! We told you so! :D

And yes, the magazine article. Inspired by all the stupid gossip mags and celebrity websites out there, that I /have/ to salute for their talent of finding smoke where there's no fire. They're not done causing problems in Addie and James' lives, let me tell you that ;)

Thanks so much for reading, reviewing and being so absolutely wonderful.

Review #36, by mary Pixiedust Delirium II

7th August 2014:
Oh my god. All I can say is oh my god, to be honest. The chapter was so good, I have tears in my eyes.

-So IT WAS JAMES!!! And wow, the pixie dust thing was definitely amazing. Eliza turning out to be a lesbian- or bi, was a surprise also when she kissed addy haha. I'd love to hear more of her story; what's up with her and cliona .
And about tarquin (btw, I love the names or ur characters (:) I think he's obviously someone from her past, a boyfriend maybe, or maybeee her dad? I dunno haha
The magazine article was amazing!! It totally was gossipy, there are a few authors who can write articles which seem like yes- they could be from a magazine. Your writing inspires me :)
And the fact you put references in of Alice in wonderland just...just..touched my heart because I really really like it haha

THE CHAPTER WAS AMAZING and I can't wait for what happens next.

:) x

Author's Response: Aah, THANK YOU SO MUCH! I had an amazing time writing this chapter and I love the fact that you liked it so!

Yes, it /was/ James. Who else ;) And Eliza is bisexual. You'll know more about her and Cliona soon, methinks. Tarquin definitely is someone from Addie's past. And thank you! The naming of my characters is a mad, fun process. For example, Cliona is named for a type of sponge from my Zoology lessons at school. And Eliza is the name of the female lead in the musical 'My Fair Lady', a role I /almost/ got.

Eep, I have written for the school newsletter, so I know how to write in a professional, straight-forward manner. Being gossipy was kinda hard, but I'm so flattered you think it's inspiring :D

I must admit, I'm not a huge fan of Alice in Wonderland, but you're welcome, all the same!

Lots of good wishes,

Review #37, by Holly_Mist Pixiedust Delirium II

7th August 2014:

*clears throat*

anyway, i really loved this chapter and found it insanely cute :3 tbh, it showed james's softer side, although only for a few moments. it was all very sweet. and addison, she's my bitter little heroine who i think just grew up too quickly. it's a lovely angle to your protagonist and i think you should keep going with this. because i have a feeling that james falls under that category too. they're just too people who need to be young again you know?

okay i got really senti. okay im done (wrongly) analysing your characters. it really was a wonderful chapter n_n

also, i just had one little thing. its been seven chapters and there is nothing much about who's trying to hurt james?? i mean, i know you're trying to create a foundation and everything but maybe a little mention here and there would help? idk, im just throwing out ideas here. however you want to roll with it :)

also, school is kicking my butt real bad because you know, 12th grade sucks. so i may not review every chapter but do know im reading and enjoying the story! till next time xx

Author's Response: HELLO! Please don't feel so bad about not reviewing; I understand how real life is. And 11th is so horrible, I can't even imagine what 12th grade must be doing to you. So chill.

You know, that's not a wrong analysis at all. Infact, it's pretty accurate. I have always thought that children being sent off to boarding schools (even if it's Hogwarts) is a little tough on them, and with Addie, she was the only sibling who went through that, so it changed her. Plus, all her ambition and focus on the future and resultant seriousness made her pretty grown up. As for James, he may behave irresponsibly, but you won't often find him indulging the child in him.

Ah, yes. That mystery is just getting stretched out, innit? I honestly had plans for some action in that direction in the next chapter or the one after that, I haven't decided which. But we will get there in a while, I promise. :)

Thank you for your thoughts, and for being such an ardent reader!

Lots of love,

Never apologize for filler chapters. They give the story cohesion and help build the drama when well written, which yours was. Loving the story so far. Please keep it coming. Also, thanks for your care in editing. I love being able to read a fan fic without having to fight the urge to print out a copy and grab a red felt tip marker. (Curse of having two Grandmas who taught spelling and grammar.;)

Author's Response: The reason I feel a bit guilty for filler chapters, no matter how important I think they are for plot and character development, is because I personallydon't like reading many fillers instories. But oh well, thanks for the appreciation ^^ Also, I know right? Being grammatically correct and not making spelling errors is vital to me, for I hate reading those kind of stories and can't imagine inflicting my wonderful readers with one of those.

Thanks for all of your lovely reviews,

I really like this story so far. Addie is an interesting character. With a sister named Bianca, I can't help but wonder if you're going for the "Taming of the Shrew" effect. If so, good choice. =)

Author's Response: Eep, thanks so much! :D Bianca is certainly the prettier sister of the two, being a model and all, but I wasn't actually aiming for a Taming of the Shrew effect. I just liked the name Bianca and thought it fit :)

hai :3

i think i left some reviews for this story before you started rewriting it, so i thought i should drop back in and say hello again. anyway, i really like the new version and i think you're a great writer! especially the scene at the end where addie's drugged/crazy/dancing. yes. good. (well, being drugged isn't good. but the writing was good. yeah.)

i don't have much else to say seeing as i'm a terrible reviewer, but i'm looking forward to the next chapter and hope it comes out sometime soonish. oh, and i think that maybe liam reminded addison of someone from her past? because i noticed that she said his eyes were the wrong shade and his jawline was too rugged, which makes it sounds like he resembles someone else. so yeah, that's what i'm thinking on that tidbit. hopefully the truth will be revealed in the next chapter? :D

-erin :)

p.s. i just looked at the title for this chapter - did she get drugged with pixiedust??? i have important questions that must be answered!

Author's Response: Hello :)

Yeah, you did, and I'm really really happy you're reading this again. And thank you so much! :D

Oh, I get that feeling too. Like all you'd be doing in a review is reiteratibg the points the writer's already made, right? It makes me really reluctant to leave feedback, sometimes. And yes, Liam reminded Addie of someone. You'll find out who next chapter, yeah.


PS. Duly noted. Questions shall be answered soon!
