Review #26, by ScarletRoses Kiss Me

16th June 2014:
So I've never been into pregnancy stories. I really hated them. Now that I am on my second child, I found myself debating reading this story. It has popped up so many times, I just haven't ever clicked it.

And I am SO glad I did. You capture pregnancy extremely well. I seriously broke a button on my pants a couple weeks ago and thought I was an oaf. Plus, I'm at 16 weeks myself, so Vi and I are very close in our pregnancies ;).

You have a true talent in your writing. I was laughing, tearing up, and smiling at everything. Please keep going. Its absolutely an amazing story and I am SO glad that I finally gave a pregnancy story chance.


Author's Response: Well, I am extremely glad you broke your pregnancy-story-strike to read this one! It's so exciting you and Violet are close in your pregnancies, I'm glad you find some solace in her trials and tribulations. Thank you so much for your kind words. Best of luck and congratulations! x

Saw this was updated and immediately had to read it!!

You did not disappoint! James is so wonderfully, adorable, beautifully sweet and cute it makes my ♥ skip every time I read your story. I think he is my absolute favorite version of James Sirius Potter out of any story I have read!

If he would... Only. Just. Get. Over. It.

How can the two of them not see how much they totally completley want to be together. I just don't know how you do it. You are fantastic and writing the longing and passion between Violet and James and, at the same time, building the frustration for the reader at their complete cluelessness with each other.

I noticed one small error - I think the class is called Ancient Runes, not Ancient Ruins.

Updates. I need updates. Quick ones. Haha!

Thanks for another great chapter!


Author's Response: Wow! Thank you so much for your kind words, I can't believe my version of James is your favourite! That is such a high compliment to give, I'm so pleased, you have no idea :)

Thank you for spotting that mistake! Whether that was autocorrect or just plain old lack of attention and poor editing on my part, I apologise. I've fixed it now, hopefully it won't be long until the edited version makes its way through the queue.

Thanks again for your review, Beth! With any luck it won't be long until the next chapter is out. :) x

I love this story so much! Only thing...why does it keep saying that it was updated? I got so excited when it said you updated today and then I go to look at the update and it doesn't exist :(

Author's Response: Thanks, I'm happy you like it! I'm not entirely sure, but I think it's because I sometimes go back and edit the story... not major plot points, just spelling and grammar and whatnot. It probably comes up as an update even when there isn't one! Sorry about that. Keep checking back for the next chapter though! x

AAH! I'm so glad you've updated! I really like this story and omg the feels!
I hope Violet will soon realize that James isn't faking it all (he isn't right?!) so then they can live happily together for ever more.

Keep writing

My 460th review :)


I squealed with joy on seeing this was updated!! :D

Chasity, What? Why? No, No, just get rid of her. That sounds mean but so is she.

James ♥ Oh I love him so much. It's so freakin' adorable how protective he is over Violet and just uhh, cute!

Is it any wonder I hate Chastity, she had no right of dropping Violet's P-bomb to everyone in The Three broomsticks.James is right that she had it coming when she got expelled but couldn't she have been expelled forever.

I want to hug Violet, bless her. *hugs* I am super glad that Rose is such a good friend, Violet certainly needs her.

No James, the plan is not a good idea. You should not be pretending you are together you SHOULD be together. DO YOU HEAR ME JAMES SIRIUS POTTER! James needs a bang on a head I swear, but I still love him ♥

An now you for updating because I have all the feels right now ♥♥

I can't wait for the next one and that a certain Potter will finally admit proper feelings for Violet.

Soph ♥ xx

Author's Response: Happy 460th review!~~ Heheee I know, it feels like forever since I updated, thank you for sticking with it! I hope you keep watching out for the new chapters, however long it takes me to get them out lol :) Thanks for the review xx

2nd April 2014:
Oh my gosh! You updated! I was so, so, SO
excited when I saw this! What a cute chapter.
James is so protective of her. It seems that
Violet isn't questioning every single one of his
moves anymore, maybe it is getting through her
head a little bit that James might actually feel
for her too?

And, of course, you must leave us with the ending
- they still have "the plan." Arrgghh! Those two
just have to figure themselves out!

Thanks for updating (again - I need to say it!)
and I am so excited that you plan to continue this

~Beth (Veritaserum27)

Author's Response: Haha, I'm so happy you were excited for the update. I was a bit afraid I left it too long and no one would care anymore! Thank you for your kind words and taking the time to review, it means a lot to me ♥ x

Oh my gosh! You need to update this soon. Why the cliff hanger? I was just getting over all the drama with Chastity and now she's back. I am so emotionally drained right now.
Anywho, I flipping LOVE your story. The characters are so heartwarming and there is a good balance of drama and humour. Ginny is exactly how I imagined her; kind, motherly, understanding, sarcastic, a little angry and scary at times.
I can't wait for the next chapter which I am hoping is soon!!
Keep writing xx :)

Author's Response: Thank you so much! The next chapter should be out in a few days :) Thanks for your review :) x
