Review #1, by VampireMaidenPhoenix 

8th August 2012:
Gah Can I PLEASE like, smack them all over the head with a very firm and hard-backed copy of Hogwarts, A History? All of them except for Lucy, she seems like the most sensible person in all of this.

Author's Response: Totally! It might do them all some good. Thanks for reviewing! :D

Review #2, by justonemorefic 

24th March 2012:
HEEE HILARION he is the most adorable thing. I really can't. The fact that he can't tell what Colwyn is doing with his knowing looks - Colwyn giving him a thumbs up and a big grin. Omg shower awkwardness. This is getting even cuter. Oh my god Hilarion, you so romantic when you are not with Roxanne. Picnics. Knarls. No one stands a chance.

And yet he still uses the word friendship to describe Lucy. I frown at you, Hilarion. I frown at you greatly.

And Lucy with her yellow and watching a really hot bloke observe turtles (seriously, he has my whole heart and more). Awww you know, that little bit where Hilarion's like don't tell me what Molly said. But wait, tell me. That was the cutest of all. There's something so comfortable about that exchange :3 AND THEN THE CONVERSATION THAT FOLLOWS IT. My heart I cannot take it. Simple isn't the same thing as stupid, so stop saying it is. Simple isn't anything to be ashamed of. I feel Hilarion's eyes opening ♥

I also giggle wondering if you giggle every time you type Hilarion's name.

OH RIGHT I totally always forget that all your stories are connected. Hee Rose the bounty hunter. But baw Perry and his restraint, trying not to snog her senseless. You are such a gent.

BUT THAT KISS AT THE END. IS THE PERFECT KISS FOR LUCY. AND ROXANNE YOU WANT PERRY'S KISS. They need to see the light ;A; 4 chapters to go!

Author's Response: You know, I actually got used to Hilarion's name, where it started sounding normal to me. Weird. It's a Greek name. In Russian it's Illarion! It means cheerful. It's a saint's name. :)

I totally loved writing the Lucy/Hilarion scene in this chapter XD Made me super happy. They are just so perfect for each other, and not even realizing it yet. "I frown at you greatly" - you totally cracked me up there haha

I love a connected story universe! This story is part of the Midnight Run series, the way I write NextGen. It is not connected to the Unsinkable-verse (maybe).

It totally was the perfect kiss for Lucy. Unfortunately, he gave it to the wrong girl ;) Thank you for reviewing!

Review #3, by Georgia Weasley 

27th February 2012:
Ah, unrequited love! Or suspected unrequited love. I just want to shake them all and wake them up to what's supposed to be going on here. The only one who seems oblivious is Roxanne. Thanks to Perry, Hilarion truly is her dream man most of the time. Once again, the details you put into the characters and their internal struggles makes it come alive. Poor Lucy and Hilarion. That afternoon picnic was just proof of where they need to be, wasn't it. And the insight you give into what being a next generation Weasley is like is priceless. As always, Perry is my favorite. His sarcastic wit and artistic side just make him my kind of man. If he had a Scottish accent, he'd be my new fictitious baby daddy. This was fantastic, as always, and I can't wait to get to the next chapter. ~GW

Author's Response: You know I love a Scottish accent, girl. Chilcott isn't a Scottish name, but he could be Scottish! I actually hadn't thought much about where he's from. I really like him, possibly better than Hilarion, although once I started picturing Hilarion as Chris Pine (thanks to the banner) I liked him a lot better haha. Hilarion just works so much better with Lucy - I find him less likeable when he's with Roxanne.

Yep, Roxanne (because she doesn't really know what's going on) is the only one not experiencing emotional turmoil over this entire situation. She's sort of the innocent victim here, despite being the catalyst for the entire situation. I suppose Lucy is as well, though. Anyway, I'm really glad you liked the chapter and REALLY glad you like Perry! Thank you so much for reviewing!

Review #4, by notreallyblonde44

Hello again :)

I'm not always the best reviewer, but I HAD to review this chapter. I think I've read the first half about 3 times just because it was so good and perfect and romantic/sweet/amazing. I'm so sad that I can't ship Hillucy properly until Roxanne butts out of the picture.

Hem. I love your characters and characterizations. They are so fleshed out and described in such a concrete and exquisite manner. I cannot get over how much I enjoy, if not love, this fanfic. I'm very curious to see where things are going to go. Looks like Hilarion's conscious is getting the best of him now about Roxanne. And he's so oblivious of his feelings for Lucy it pains me to see them not "together" together. Sighh the hand holding at the end makes my inner romanctic swoon. One can only hope this ends well for all of them haha.

I wish I could give a more substantial/constructive review, but I'm fangirling so hard for this story that I can't come up with anything better than saying how fantastic this story is :) Thanks for sharing it with us; I look forward to the next update!

--Ellie

Author's Response: I'm glad you reviewed! I love reviews :) You can totally start shipping Hilarion/Lucy! I'm so glad you liked the romance in this chappie - really enjoyed writing poor oblivious Hilarion with poor lovesick Lucy in this chapter. That was fun. Hilarion is definitely realizing he's messed up with this whole Roxanne scheme. I can't wait to throw him together with Lucy ;)

I have to tell you, I was floating with happiness when I saw this review - fangirling! Over my characters? Eeeek! So cool. I was so excited. Thank you thank you! I loved the review, and I'm really glad you enjoyed this chapter :)

Review #5, by Hope's Mom 

23rd February 2012:
What a tangled web! I don't think Roxanne is going to be very pleased when she finds out that Perry is feeding conversation to Hilarion or that he had a lunch by the lake with Lucy. Perry and Roxanne's non- date was most interesting, too. It seems so obvious that those with more similar interests should be together but I suppose that's what makes the story more interesting! Thanks for the update!

Author's Response: Roxanne isn't going to be pleased when she finds out the Cyrano scheme - and neither is Lucy. The couples with similar personalities and interests really should be together! (in this case) But they haven't realized it yet. Thank you for reviewing!

Review #7, by Giola 

23rd February 2012:
When I saw you'd updated, I just had to come and read this straight away.

As always, your characterisation is spot on. I still do prefer the Roxanne and Perry scenes to Lucy and Hilarion. I think, perhaps, it's because I'm more like them in personality, but I'm not sure. The four of them really to provide great contrast and balance, you seem to have a sort of structure going in your chapters, and it works brilliantly with the four characters.

You've created a wonderful atmosphere of tension - with Hilarion and Lucy, for example, both of them have feelings for the other, yet neither will admit it. It would almost be cliche, as the idea has been done many, many times, if it wasn't written so well. As it is, it's fresh to read, partly because as far as I know, there's no other story like this around. The fact that you're tackling two main relationships at one time (Perry/Roxanne and Lucy/Hilarion) as well as Roxanne/Hilarion, is pure genius. I could never pull that off.

I can't help but wonder what the aftermath of this ending scene will be. Perhaps Roxanne will realise soon, Hilarion certainly seems close to doing so.

As always, a lovely chapter. I went and looked up Cyrano de Bergerac, because, I'm ashamed to admit, I've only ever seen adaptions. Honestly, the play fits with these characters so well, and since you had them already established from the Midnight series, I can see why you had to write this. Roxanne is just too perfect (I mean, 'Roxane', 'Roxanne', how could you not at least consider this plot line? :P )

Anyway, I'll stop with my rambling now. Though I must admit you're building up my expectations for Perry's love song, I hope we do get to see it eventually! Haha.

Author's Response: Yay thank you for reviewing! I really like writing Perry and Roxanne, I think I'm closer to them than to Hilarion and Lucy too. I like their upbeat vibe. Hilarion and Lucy are sort of low-key.

Nobody is really admitted their feelings yet, although Hilarion is definitely realizing by this point that maybe he doesn't really like Roxanne as much as he thinks he does, if that makes sense. And poor Lucy and Perry are both just waiting in the wings...

It's tough to juggle three ships among four people like this, but hopefully I'm making it work. I'm glad you think I've handled it well. I've got the next chapter posted so you can see some of the aftermath, and new events to create new aftermath ;)

Cyrano is excellent! The original French is so witty and funny. And yes, the name Roxanne always - from the first time I heard the names of George's kids - made me think of Cyrano, so I wanted to incorporate the play somehow and then Hilarion and his friend just sort of came into my head. I did have to revamp to get the extra girl into the plot, and of course I'm not following it faithfully (spoiler: Hilarion, unlike Christian, won't be dying). But hopefully it works out. haha

Well, we'll get to "see" the song, so to speak, later on. Thank you so much for the review!
