I always enjoy reading a good Quidditch scene and you wrote it so well that I felt like I was watching inside of my mind. Odd that Carlotta would suddenly go cold and leave so abruptly like that. Could she possibly be getting scared about how much she's feeling for James...? Hmm. Anyway, awesome chapter, loved it.

Author's Response: I LOVE writing Quidditch matches! It's one thing I miss now that I'm not writing this story any more. It's fun to think up all the little tactics and plays. :) Thanks for reviewing!

Oh no she freaked out! I'm guessing that it might have something to do with the fact that she is starting to realize that maybe a relationship with James wouldn't be a bad thing after all, or at least that is what I'm hoping that its about. This chapter was just wonderful and I loved reading the Quidditch match! You did such a great job of describing everything and I really felt like I was there. You also came up with some really awesome plays and I'm just completely in awe of this right now. Seriously though, your writing is spectacular and just so much fun to read! I'm really going to be sad when this story is over, although I'm hearing that there may be a sequel which would be absolutely wonderful to read! I love that all of James family shows up for his first game, its a nice tradition for them to do and I also liked the fact that it took a while for Harry to show up but at some point in time during the game, he did show up to show his support for his son. It was a nice touch and allows us to see that he really does care about his father even though they seem to have some sort of hang up between the two. I'm hoping that James can indeed show Harry that this is the job for him. Anyways another great chapter and I can't wait to read the next! Great Job!


Author's Response: Carlotta's internal thought process is one that will remain unknown for some time, much to James' frustration. I would imagine it's a daunting thought though, that you're getting involved in a relationship with a successful sports player who just so happens to be a wizard! I really enjoyed writing this Quidditch match (that enjoyment has well and truly died now; I finished this fic the other week and was so relieved to be done with Quidditch! It's fried my brain) so I'm glad you enjoyed reading it! There WILL be a sequel, so much more to come. :)

Oh, the Weasley clan would totally be supportive of their own, wouldn't they? Especially when Quidditch is involved; any excuse to watch a match! Thanks for reviewing!

Really good chapters... It's pretts difficult to keep a Quidditch game description interesting and exciting all the way thorugh - but you managed ;). I wonder what's up with Carlotta though. And again, with James and Harry...

Author's Response: I always used to wish JK had written more Quidditch matches into the books ... and then I tried writing one and realised why she'd avoided the task. It's pretty hard! I do enjoy planning out what will happen in each game though, that bit's quite fun. It's just putting it into words that's the challenging bit. Thanks for reviewing!

There is nothing good about Carla needing to flee. Between this and her having that little episode when they found her outside the pub, my angst-dar is pinging. NO GOOD THINGS.

Except this chapter! I like Quidditch, and it's a pain to write it well, but this one's good! You don't get too bogged down in the minutiae of the game while still making it exciting and easy to visualise. I think keeping a tight narrative on one player is the best way to evoke the atmosphere so long as you can get the actual events covered (basically, I guess, how Rowling wrote the games in the books!) and this does it with James. OH the Daddy issues. I want to know all of the Daddy issues.

Bloody Weasleys! I think a chart's a most sensible idea, *I* struggle to keep track of the whole horde of them. And that's only with FIVE out of SEVEN siblings having had kids. It doesn't help that thanks to so many sons most of the grandkids are ALSO Weasleys.

But good stuff! Good action, good characters, you managed to make the horde not too incomprehensible and it's good to see some of the more significant secondary characters like Rose and Al. All good!

Author's Response: Angst-dar is right to ping. LIPS SEALED ETC ETC.

Yuh, this chapter was an utter nightmare to write. I mean, firstly we had to actually get here, this match was initially planned to happen in 16, after Lily and Maddie and co visited James, but then the teapot started singing and that was that plan screwed up. THEN I remembered the whole England Quidditch thing so this match got pushed back AGAIN. And THEN all of the family wanted to be in the chapter before the match even STARTED ... it was awful. I actually enjoyed writing parts of this chapter, it was just a logistical nightmare. And I didn't quite realise how nightmarish Quidditch matches were to write ... good thing there's no more of those, eh? ;) GOOD TO KNOW I got this one right.

DADDY ISSUES COMING UP OKAY? Big Things will unfold over the next ten-ish chapters, fingers crossed, so hopefully your curiosity will soon be sated.

I'm not TOO bad with this Weasley generation; at least, I know they all exist, it's just sometimes I seem to sideline a couple of them accidentally (poor old Louis!). Though that may be for the best. Less is more. And I've gone and created the next generation too. I AM NOT HELPING MYSELF. Carla will be carrying around that family tree for YEARS.

GLAD YOU LIKEY. More of Rose and Al(bert) next chapter too. Thanks for reviewing!

i wonder where carlotta had to rush off to.
it seemed really suspicious but then again, maybe she did just have plans.
james still really needs to tell carlotta everything about the war and all of that stuff.

the longer he puts it off, the worse it is.

i love the part with all of the family xD
crazy yet absolutely fun to be around.
i wonder what carlotta thought about it all haha

carlotta's reaction at the end, how she was rushing to get somewhere still confused me.

and btw, random question. but whose the actress in your banner? i know its james franco but i dont know the actress; i've been trying to figure it out for ages but i might as well just ask you haha

Author's Response: The first Quidditch game! Finally! Haha. It was meant to happen two chapters ago, that clearly worked out well. As for Carlotta dashing off, I will leave you to ponder over that one, cause my lips are sealed. :) James does indeed need to tell Carlotta about the war. But he's an idiot and keeps putting it off. And poor old Carlotta must indeed have been pretty daunted by meeting ALL of James' family in pretty much one hit! As for the banner, I didn't make it and so I have no idea who the woman is! I specifically asked for Franco (of course!) but I didn't have anyone in mind for Carlotta so I have no idea who it is, or if it's even an actress; I'm not sure where my banner maker gets her pics from. Thanks for reviewing! :)
