There was something like a proud apology about him that Astoria could only understand too well. - ;~; I love this
excuse me while I quote portions of your own fic back at you:
Astoria said, and even when her words left her body to mingle with what was around her--air, vacuum, blank space--she realized something that had not been so clear to her before; it made what Draco had said earlier make sense somehow, a fleeting feeling, a heartbeat’s length, that said we carry with us what we want to leave.
heh, I love how astoria's idea of a harmless page is bones and a dissected human heart. I know that feel, bro. hazard of being an artist. there isn't much that goes in a sketchbook that's harmless.
oooh I like that physical description of draco, you know, with the silver and gold hair. it's just...okay forgive me for trying to make a pretentious ex-lit student point here, but it's like...platinum is supposed to be the richest and most expensive of metals and somehow I always think it has connotations of modernity and progress and such, whereas gold and silver seem a little more archaic and earthly and - where the hell am I going with this? I just like how you described his hair, that's all (and, wow...that sounded sad. heee.)
omg those last two paragraphs. straight to the heart. just. I can't.
sorry this was another incoherent review but...asdfghj. those are my feelings. asdfghrsd keyboardsmashes.
I love this to bits ♥Author's Response: yeahhh. i take credit for her cray, as i said before. there's something REALLY quite comforting to me about the predictability and strange beauty of the inside of the human body. you get me, though, i know.
no i totally think along the same lines. i can't say i did it on purpose but my goal is to make astoria's inventory of draco the glorified version of a real, living, breathing hurting wishing wanting needing /person/, and i think that's what the simple elements do for draco, his hair in particular. ahem. also i think wizards really value those metals over other more modern ones, because they're so old and tradition-y. i also wanted to show how astoria isn't removed from ideas that wealth=beauty. even when draco's poor she makes him better than that by giving him valuable hair. none of that makes sense but i trust you to make the most of that information that anyone could.
WOW i have written a successful drastoria omg. i count these reviews as my seals of approval jsyk, queen of all things drastoria.
(h) (h) Report Review
so I put on some atmospheric music and came back to read this (pssst: the captain and the hourglass by laura marling)
ahhh that little paragraph aaah. about breathing in time and such (if I read it right...). I just. I can feel it's that awkwardness of being with someone you really like and really want to impress but can't bring yourself to do it out of sheer /awkward/. okay I totally read it wrong but I loved it, yes, I am going to stop typing now.
I love your draco and astoria. you probably know well by now how it's my otp and I love it till the end of time and such, but i think you've just done such a lovely job with their characterisation and it makes me feel all warm inside.
she knew that a simple steeping in a shared human element...in a weakness, a cluelessness, a past that mingled...was more accessible here, staring at the worn elbow of the coat of a man she hardly knew than in any of her other worldly pursuits. - give me this paragraph and let me have it forever.
I love the downtroddeness of this - like astoria knowing draco's lost his job but not wanting to ask him - it's so beautiful and believable (and I'm attracted to the downtrodden like a moth to a flame).
and, ooh, I like how you show draco's changed since hogwarts. this is like...this is like my headcanon draco realised in the most beautiful way. asdfghjkl thank you for writing this C:
I love the ending. ooh. can't even...I don't even know how to describe why I like it but I really do.
I'm sorry this was mostly incoherent but this is one of those fics that you can kind of lose yourself in and now I feel like I've been drawn into this little world and...yeah, just, wow, love this :3
♥Author's Response: oh dear lord julia how do you expect me to respond to this? also that song is so appropriate to this story that i'm crying silently over here in appreciation to you for bringing it up.
yeah--it's about time as someTHING. that we interact with and in ways, that we /are/. yes, astoria is quite awks. but in a way i find her to be a really beautiful, perceptive person, if not a bit downtrodden. not that there's anything wrong with being downtrodden obviously ♥
yes yes yes I know this is your otp! which is why i appreciate your reviews x infinity. i really wrote this from a desire to get to the bottom of some great mystery but i think i've created something, or depicted something at least, that i'll never understand. it seems quite like it has a life of its own. it's been difficult for me to go back to it and try to wrap it up in a couple more chapters because i know what i had planned to happen but it doesn't quite feel--right?--anymore. these characters are much more alive than i had planned on allowing them to be. they have needs. and i'm just like what. no, do what i want, but they don't listen. #ffwriterprobs
OKAY YOU CAN HAVE IT -puts it in a bow-
i too get a bit, well, attracted to the downtrodden. i'm a very brooding person, especially when i don't have anything to do. take summer, for example. i get really crazy and restless and sad. in this way astoria stems from me, all this idleness, it's getting to her.
GAH YOU'RE THROWING ME COMPLIMENTS RIGHT AND LEFT AND UP AND DOWN AND JUST JSUT JUST ASJFHALSKDJFHLAKSJD~ !
no i have received more incoherent reviews, and god i've left much worse, don't even worry. any words from you = ace.

eee that last paragraph. EEE. that was a picture colin took of orla with his new camera, amirite? I bet I'm wrong. but I want to be right. I mean, rite.
another fab chapter. more emotions. more feels. more creys. eep. I love this ♥Author's Response: JULIAR ♥
-strokes wisdom beard- Yarr, your point about Tonks and Colin is a good one. Poor Tonks only had a month with Teddy and imagine if she could give him something permanent...I think that would bring her a lot of peace. And baww, Colin was so young and naive and brave. Such a little Gryffindor. FEELS 5EVER~
If you pay close attention, the origins of the picture will be confirmed very soon. :3

oooh I liked benjy's pondering about whether he could have been in the grotta or not. kind of reminded me of how, at face value, the war in hp can look really black & white but it's actually all shades of grey. ~imagine I said that in a more profound way~
EEYY YOU DID SAY WE'D MEET GROTTA PEEPS. I have been waiting for this.

lol I just read back all those derpy reviews I typed out on a borrowed ipad yesterday...when I said I wondered if colin would enter to see colin again, I did mean dennis. I promise. srsly. what is my typingg.
but now I am back and I can read again and I have a real keyboard and a real screen this time eee! I even have tea and toast! my exam is tomorrow but otherwise life is quite fab!
COLIN. EEE COLIN. CAN I KEEP HIM. nothing to do with the casting I promise. I just always had a soft spot for colin in canon and, colin. just, colin. the name colin has lost all meaning now.
I like this little interaction between colin and mrs lovegood :3
sarah my CREYS:
All he wanted was for everyone to stop so that he could dig through the wreckage and find Dennis. In retrospect, his mind stored those scenes in the form of photographs, a way that could be easily documented and retrieved. The physical parameters of those photos kept him from envisioning all of the other people who had been strewn in grotesque heaps around him while he stood fighting, limb over limb and chin over chest, dead. It was too surreal to be his life.
^ sorry for quoting such a long passage back at you but, omg, my creeeys.
I like orla. inevitably I am really curious to know what happened to her and I hope she and colin become friendy friends and act as crutches for each other and such etc. I didn't phrase that very well, um...
I like how there's a huge cast in this and they all have their own intricate little relationships and social dynamics but it doesn't get confusing trying to keep track of them...in fact, I love dipping in and out of all these little groups, building up the story piece by piece.
I JUST. I JUST LOVE THIS.
♥Author's Response: I LOVE YOU, JUST SAYIN'. ♥
Lulz, I figured you meant Dennis. Unless there are two Colins, and one of them is alive right now in a parallel universe while the other one is in Cliodna's Clock, and they're going to both travel to Earth and meet the real Colin who is dead, and they will fuse into one super-zombie-Colin who takes pictures with his photographic memory and dispenses photographs through his mouth.
Orla is ~mysterious~ and yayyy for non-confusion! There's a lot of people to cycle through and I'm trying to give their little side-stories equal face time so that we don't forget them.

Oh my god the feels.
I loved this little diversion into the past. If you don't mind me switching fandoms for a minute, the first section reminded me a little of the hunger games...lily having to be so cold and ruthless when she is not as a person. Oh, the feels.
The diversion into Severus' death was as heartbreaking as it was in canon. The feels! There's a lot of unfinished business between these two. Can't wait to see it come to a head.
Love this so much ♥Author's Response: Feels, crey D; lulzzz Hunger Games. Yeah, some people take the races super seriously and get all ruthless and lose sight of themselves because of the incredibly high stakes. Others, though, just can't adapt that way.
Severus and Lily totes have unfinished business. Lily loves James, who hates Severus, who loves Lily and hates James, and it's a circle of emotions.

I loved the surrealism in the passage about how the emotions were affecting the house! Okay, didn't phrase that very well...I just: Summer is only two minutes from here. Follow the train tracks.. Loved that phrase. Besides all the era mash ups with the citizens of cliodna's clock, that reminded me that this is set in some other world and oooh I loved it.
The relationship between Remus and Peter, ooh, loved that too.

♥Author's Response: Surrealism is mah fave. The Potter house is like a Dali painting. Everything is like...wait, what.

Hey, I like your regulus! he's got a kind of dark humour about him and you can tell he's Sirius' brother. Granted, I have never read much in the way of marauders, but it's a take in him that I've never seen before and I love it.
Loved seeing all those minor characters as well, from all eras - it was a nice light touch in the chapter.
Oh god, that whole bit with lily - that was superb. I'd never even considered how she would feel about the prince's tale...I'm really looking forward to seeing how they reunite now, if they ever do. I do ship lily/sev but only in the unrequited sense and I think their relationship would be really interesting to explore and...gah. I love your lily and your James. I love your everyone. I love this fic to pieces.
Hmm, I wonder if we'll meet anyone from the grotta? I love how this fic already has me anticipating so much and working over so much in my mind...okay, I can't fill these review boxes with fangirling forever but, seriously, Sarah, this fic is absolutely wonderful.
♥Author's Response: I'm one of those people who likes to talk endlessly about how fascinating Regulus is and how great it would be to read a fic concentrating solely on him, and then I never look up any such fics. I just talk about how sad it is that he's lacking in fan fiction when really I have absolutely no idea how much fan fiction he's in. READING FIC IS TOO MAINSTREAM. But I do like writing him. He's delightfully rude.
Ever since King's Cross and JKR's confirmation that in Potterverse, an afterlife is canon, I was like...but Severus. But Lily. But this means that they're together. With James. WHY IS THIS NOT BEING SHOWN OR EXPLORED. So I was ultra stoked to be able to show all that in my own way, with my leaky pools of angst.
I LOVE YOU TO PIECES. ♥

For surely one of them should have been permitted to stay behind.
I don't think this chapter was redundant at all - on one hand, it was useful to get all that information to set up this afterlife and, on the other...the lupins...that was heartwrenching, I tell you.
I like the way you characterised crabbe...hard to explain, but you didn't write him off as just a bully. How are you managing all this canon? Are you actually JKR? I knew it all along obviously bcoz im sooo clevah.
Another magnificent chapter. Can't stop reading this, should be revising, oh well reading fic is totally revising and this is awesome anyway so.
♥Author's Response: Pepper is not sweet, why is your penname such a liar.
THE LUPINS. ♥ I get such feels for the Lupins. I can't help it, every single time I start to portray them, angst leaks in all over the place until it's just a big pool of angst and woe.
Crabbe is a dunce, but he's not really evil or anything here. Without his friends, he's kind of just a scared little cockroach.
This one time, I saw JKR on the street and I said, "Tell me your secrets," and she said, "No." So I seduced her with balloon animals because I am an expert, and she reluctantly gave them to me to look at, but I stole them completely and ran off. I've got them right here and I'm going to sell them for a killing, so we can start the bidding at two blueberry pies and now I'm hungry again...

Sarah...how are you real?
I read this chapter a long time ago but I stupidly forgot to review. I think I have told you, though, just how amazing this fic is. I can't even begin to try and phrase it...this story is just so, so good. I just...I can't. I have lost the ability to can. And I get the feeling this is going to be one of those stories I simply can't stop reading so forgive me if the reviews are little more than keyboard smashes.
This reminded me a lot of JKR and all the other authors whose books I devoured when I got home from school...it's heartbreaking, funny, fantastic and adventurous in equal measures. I wish I could phrase that in a more meaningful way but I really can't...I mean, it broke my heart to see Fred, to see Colin so worried about Dennis (I have a bit of a love for Colin, hee) and to see /fred being called George/ - as well as reminding me of how the twins act in canon, it really hammered home how either twin could have died, any Weasley, in fact. And even though we only saw a little bit of Fred, he was /so/ canon - cracking a joke about the uncreative name of the battle...I love it!
It's the perfect sort of addictive story too because...well, it's just pure fantasy and action, and the anticipation at the end of the chapter and all and...ascdvkjbvjsdvojdsvsdvrgt I am incapable of putting down exactly how I feel about this fic in coherent words. I just love this /so much/.
Okay. On to the next chapter. I am so not going to get any studying done tonight. You're amazing but here's some concrit: stop being amazing so I can get some work done and hopefully pass my a-levels.
OH YOU'RE JUST FAB.
♥Author's Response: JULIAR. ♥
Squeee, you are here, at my storyyy, squeee. ♥ P.S. Keyboardsmash reviews are totes welcome.
I love Colin as well! He seems to be a bit of an underdog in this fic, as most readers sort of tolerate him but don't really give him much thought other than that. I think he's such a sweet individual and of course since I cast &droo for him in this story, you're pretty much obligated to like him. I'm almost certain that's in your contract.
I think that overall, the Weasleys got somewhat lucky that their family death toll was only one person for this war. And I'm rude and I wish it could've been Charlie because we never even really got to see Charlie all that much (I mean, he wasn't even in the films, what's up with that), so it wouldn't really have fazed me. But then JKR was all cackling and typing with her fingers of doom and she killed off Fred just to give me mass feels, etc., I am rambling~
I lurve fantasy and action. There's a few other elements involved, so that hopefully there's a little bit of everything for everyone's assorted tastes.

They fight constantly and sometimes it takes them days to make up, but Harry just chalks that up to the fact that their love for each other burns so brightly that sometimes it catches fire and it always takes some time for the flames to go out. - ROMIONE IN A BEAUTIFUL NUTSHELL.
they're so adorable together. they read like the most perfect of real couples.
poor harry. poor, poor harry. omg I just...even though there are bursts of brilliant fluff in this fic, I feel so sad reading this. I just put on the saddest smiths song ever on repeat, by the way. prepare for gross sobbing errwhere.
just, you. ♥ Report Review
