First off, HAPPY BIRTHDAY CELESTE! ♥
You've been lovely and those conversations late into the night (that I have conveniently saved up in my inbox) can practically constitute to a epic novel of things that are only funny/make sense to us. Evidently, Padma and Cho have those moments as well.
I can't tell you how much I love reading the bantering between these two girls and can't help but smile at how much these girls have grown and how much this reminds me of us, and I'm sure, to other girls, it probably reminds them a lot of discussions that they have with their own friends. I love the slice of life aspect to your writing.
I'm grateful have accidentally (and coincidentally) stumbled upon your story on HPFF because despite not being very active -okay, fine- not active AT ALL as an author, being on this site has brought us closer.
And why yes, your world is a quite lovely world to live in. Might as well enjoy your cynicism as much as I can! Oh how I will miss your talks about sliced bread and your contagious condition of comparing guys to various animals once we head off for college. Well, time to go cursing the chair that is actually an AP book for the last time.
JasalineAuthor's Response: THANK YOU.
This was probably the last time you'll review me, and although this response is like...two odd months late, this was a really special story and a really special review to receive.
Thank you for all the support. Thank you for always giving me feedback. Even though this odd HPFF relationship began out of sheer coincidence thanks to the archives, it's always been a joy having my best friend contribute so much to how I write. It's just been a really special and irreplaceable experience.
Now that it's reached it's conclusion, I just have to say thank you so much for everything. Even though you never really got your own writing off the ground as I wanted, all the conversations about writing and you listening to my rants are things I'll always treasure.

I've already read this but I'm still going to give you a review anyway because TSOS is to die for! *hugs*
I love the Dominique/Scorpius interaction in this chapter (which has been long waited for and totally worth it) because it's so natural and realistic. I think what I love the most is your characterization of Roxanne, Dom, and Scorpius in this chapter-- it's really well built and I can picture the characters well in my head.
=D Update soon, Celeste!
JasalineAuthor's Response: Hey, thanks for coming back and reviewing! I'm still really behind on reviewing your stories, so it means the world that you come back anyway.
DOM/SCORP FTW. Also, I don't really know how to give you a proper response as it's you and I'd just feel silly. XD
Thank you for coming back and I WILL be updating soon! ^___^ Report Review
Wow! I really loved this one-shot! You've made me love the Remus/Tonks pairing ten times more than I had before reading your story. I love writing styles, so I have to point out that your lovely and natural prose = LOVE :D
-JasalineAuthor's Response: Thank you very much! I'm quite fond of the Remus/Tonks ship, so I'm glad it was believable - this is the only time I've written it! Thanks for reviewing. Report Review
Wow! This is really brilliant! Hardboiled-esqeue, which I adore!
Celeste, from TGS, told me to read Brigitte and when she said it was by RonsGirlFriday, I came hopping along to read this right away! ^^
Although I've always been a pretty silent reader (I'm trying to break that habit now, by reviewing more), I must say that I really love your natural, witty writing style. It's really easy to follow with and such a fun read =D

Hi! I saw that you were featured author of the month on TGS and well, congrats! You really deserve it, judging from this beautiful one-shot =)
Your writing style is just lovely and I have such a weakness for beautiful writing that it makes me feel like I'm melting inside (even though, this story is, ironically, about the grieving process)
I love how you used second person for Dom; it really personalizes her character! :D
-JasalineAuthor's Response: Aw, thank you :) I'm glad you liked the second person! A lot of people who read this said they didn't even notice it, haha... I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing...
Nevertheless, thank you for your very sweet review! It's much appreciated! Report Review
Wow. This was really good! :D
I love, love how you really pulled in on the Draco and Hermione finally growing up and becoming friends rather than the passionate "Hermione is trapped in Draco's bedroom" Draco/Hermione fics that I tend to stay away from.
I can imagine Draco and Hermione being so contradictory in their beliefs that their conversations/debates would end up rather interesting and all. (Excellent characterization on your part, too)

Celestie, I notice this story flows with less description, but it's still simple and innocent and pretty. I can't wait to find out what happens next!
JasalineAuthor's Response: Jasaline! xx
It does have less description, because I wanted to make each chapter short and simple. This is me experimenting with weird styles. :D I shall update soon, hopefully!

Okay Celeste, I think it's time for me to write a review. =D
Reading your writing gives me an ethereal feeling, like I'm floating in the clouds watching everything from far away.
Your writing is very lyrical, but it's weaved in well with the plot of the story. Not clumpy at all.
I still love this "she is still Rose of roses and he her Teddy of teddies"; very sweet.
And of course, the backward/forward is really awesome. I was a bit confused at first, but I read it again and it makes so much sense. Your writing makes me think about what happened; it's not at all blunt, which is definetely a plus.
Hope you get the many many favorites and reviews that you deserve!
Lots and lots of love and support,
Jasaline XDAuthor's Response: Jasaline! â¥
Why do people say my writing is floaty? I take it as a compliment, but I still really don't understand how it's floaty. I just write normally and apparently that makes people think of...clouds? Or lyrical, for that matter. :P
Thanks so much for coming back and reviewing even though you'd already read it! It really does mean a lot! Also, I did see your author's page and it's great that you're getting back into writing! (It's taken me, what, a year of persuading you?)
I'm so proud of you Celestie, your words are so powerful. Although there are so many characters put into this chapter, each person's personality is so distinct. I love that you're putting in characters that other writers sometimes tend to shy away from. Like I said before, you've developed a very distinguishing writing style. Your first novella is going well! Hope you get lots of favorites!
JasalineAuthor's Response: Thank you, Jasaline! I honestly couldn't have written this without you and all your constant cheerleading whenever we were supposed to be doing more important things. XD
I hope YOU start writing again, too. Again, thank you!
