Things seem to be getting complicated with Carlotta. I only hope that James fights for her instead of pulling the plug on it. Especially considering how serious they've gotten despite both not wanting anything serious.

Author's Response: They are both making things very difficult for each other, that's for sure. Thanks for reviewing!

Oh no poor James. He seems just down right devastated that she forgot about his game. It's kinda cute really, that his playing was affected by her not showing up. At least they still won though. Gah I just want to read more. I need more! This story is seriously so good and addictive, I just can't help but want to come back and read this all the time. I feel bad about how long its been since I last read and reviewed a chapter. Hopefully I can fix that. Anyways, this was another wonderful chapter and I shall continue onto the next. Great Job!


Author's Response: Poor James, he's in way over his head by this point. Bless him. ;) Thanks for the review!

I have a theory about Carlotta's missing the match...and I don't like it. But I suppose I'll wait and see how things pan out.

Also, on a lighter note, McGonagall hoping for the next trick to be on Trelawney? Bahahahaha

Author's Response: I'm intrigued as to what your theory was! :) Can you think of anything that would amuse McGonagall more than a prank on Trelawney? Thanks for the review :)

Ahhh, I'm finally catching up on this story. And, is it good to see James again. Geez, I've missed this guy.

Great chapter though, but I'm kinda bummed that James is bummed. I don't like it when he's sad, or when things between him and Carlotta aren't going so well. I want them to stay together!!

Anyway, great chapter, and I'm off to the next one!!

Author's Response: I'm cruel to James. So so cruel. I apologise for this ... but the kid needs it! Glad you're still enjoying, thanks for reviewing :)

Ah-ha! I briefly forgot who Demelza Robins is, but context is everything. I'm with you now. Thought some hitherto unheard-of ex-girlfriend or something but nope, Quidditch. Serious business! Aw, that's cool/sweet that James WANTS hard games to showcase himself. You go, James, you're awesome.

I want a t-shirt with that 'Keep calm' variation. Or a mug. I'm not picky! Hee! Cordelia's always cute. I never know whether to judge it animal cruelty or if she's just a particularly cogent tribble. I'll stick with tribble. Oh, wait, less on cute fluffy things, more on James' success! Good for him. Ha! Of course Carla, being NORMAL, would be wowed by Hogwarts. MAGIC CASTLE. 'Playing keepie-uppie with my pygmy puff' sounds like an euphemism, which I suppose would make James' point better. And BLESS James for his loyalty. I seem to be in a mood to gush over James today.

Whee! McGonagall the Awesome! I see she's still headmistress, that's cool. McGonagall is Eternal. Or should be. I like the idea she still had a good innings post-Dumbledore as she did so much for the school even when technically just Deputy. Though I think Maggie Smith ages McGonagall in our heads; isn't she described as dark haired in PS? I mean, I know wizarding ageing is weird but I think the movies make us imagine her as a bit more wizened than she is. But I digress.

Hee, setting a Weasley kid on Trelawney. Sounds about right for McG. I was going to say this chapter is full of grinnings but there's trouble afoot. James might be being fatalistic in terms of the WHYs, but something's up. Something wicked this way comes. Good stuff!

Author's Response: Yes, Demelza Robins is a JK character from HBP who played Quidditch and is now Head Honcho in the England camp. So definitely one to impress. And James is sensible enough to realise that landslide victories against walkover teams are not going to advance his England prospects as much as tight games against tougher sides.

Go for a mug, everyone needs mugs! I do like throwing (figuratively AND literally) Cordelia into things at certain moments; her existence isn't JUST for pure amusement, though obviously that's a good side-effect. I wouldn't think of it as animal cruelty, especially if she likes it! Which I'm sure she does. Definitely a tribble though.

That Hogwarts mention went in when Carlotta was meant to be visiting Hogwarts. That was the initial draft for the next chapter, and was where James was going to bump into McG. But it was going hidiously, and I decided that it wouldn't add to the story, and might possibly seem TOO unrealistic, so I dropped it and shoehorned the McG conversation in here. But the bit with Carlotta looking through the photographs didn't need to come out, so I left it in to serve as a reminder that this entire world is bewildering to her.

I had that EXACT same thought about the euphemism! Good to know I'm not the only one who's easily amused.

McG is still Headmistress because I just ASSUMED that she would be, and didn't really think to myself "might she be getting on a bit now?" until a few weeks ago. But I don't think she's that old; if she was in her seventies in the books, she must be in her early hundreds now, which isn't necessarily over the hill in wizarding terms. So she is still there for now. And subtly encouraging mischief when the target is a worthy one!

Something Wicked may well be coming! Enjoy the calm while it lasts ;) Thanks for reviewing!

aw, James is so cute!

Is there something up with Carlotta? First she acted weird at his match and wanted to leave randomly and now she 'forgot' that he had a match like he does every Saturday? I don't know, it just seems like there's something up that she's not telling James.

Anyways, I love this story and I love your characters but is there going to be more about James' relationship with his dad? I want to know what all is going on there too.

I can't wait for the next update!


Author's Response: James is ADORABLE, if I do say so myself. There IS more to Carlotta than she lets on, but I'm not saying any more on the matter! And James/Harry issues are imminent, you will be glad to know. Thanks for reviewing!

Review #7, by missclaire17

oh my, oh JAMES.

i think he's finally seeing why some of his family and friends are saying that this whole issue with Carlotta was very dangerous and not good.
they're "not" in a serious relationship and if they dont keep in touch, then Carlotta can't know about the Wizarding world. but the whole idea about wiping her memories!!!

i think the fact that Carlotta "seems" bored of James is what bothered him, rather than the worying idea that he would need to wipe her memory if they didn't keep in touch.

i dunno. it DOES seem confusing that Carlotta forgot all of a sudden, especially when she was really excited before.
but then again, im getting the feeling that just like how James didn't tell Carlotta why the Potters and Weasleys are super famous, there is something that Carlotta isn't telling James.
It might not have anything to do with her missing this Harpies match but I still can't get that nagging feeling away from my mind that there is something going on with Carlotta that James doesn't know.

*SIGH* James is getting so attached to Carlotta and yet he completely doesn't know it.
I wonder if Ginny noticed, how James had his worst game of the season during the one time that Carlotta forgot that he had a game today.
Honestly, James. I hope he gets over this relationship-phobia and this love-phobia so he can realize that he isn't going to shelve Carlotta like Cassie Lynch or Allegra or any of those other girls.

Author's Response: James always knew the risks on a subliminal level, but didn't really think it would be a problem - or at least, he tried to tell himself that it wouldn't be a problem! It's becoming a bit more of an issue now, so he can't hide from it for much longer. He IS concerned about the possibility of having to wipe her memories, but certainly the fear that she is getting bored of him is a bit of a blow to his ego too. He does most definitely have some learning and developing to do because he lets other stuff run his life at the moment, rather than running it himself.

Carlotta ... isn't all that she seems. I'll give you that one for free. I will say no more though! I've probably already said too much. But rest assured, there is a LOT more to come.

Also, thank you so so much for my Dobby nomination! I only noticed it the other day, and I got really excited about it, haha. And also, thank you very much for your general support because I really appreciate it :) Cheers for reviewing!
