It can be tricky doing more than one story at once, so I'll be patient. I really like the introduction and the set up here, Ora's story is going to be an interesting one. Her interactions with Narcissa are amusing.
I guess this is where I could act like a hypocrite and beg you for updates : ) Levy should keep me happy though.Author's Response: Thanks for patience- too many "OMG UPDATE Sooonnnzzz" can grate on the nerves a bit. Especially when I know I'm not going to get around to this until after N&N and I'm just kind of...teasing you guys, I guess. I don't mean to be mean, I just needed to get this out of myself. I needed it out there!
I'm glad you'll be happy with Levy, I'm trying to finish her story by the time I get back to school mid-August. It seems like a tall order, though. Report Review
Interesting chapter, I can't wait to read more :)
I hope Narcissa and Ora fight because Narcissa is mean to her and snobby. So please update soon!Author's Response: Thank you for liking it, but perhaps I didn't do a very good job explaining the delicacies of Ora and Narcissa's relationship- they're very close. Very, very close. Yes, Narcissa is mean and snobby, they are ALL mean and snobby. Even Ora. So please don't think there is ill will betwixt the two of them, because there isn't.
I'm sure things will be clearer as I continue the story.
I'm sorry to disappoint you, but I probably won't be updating soon. I want to finish N&N first, so I will be regularly updating that story instead. I find it very difficult to write two stories at once, especially when they are as intertwined as these two.

Ooer, what a wonderful start! A very different tone than N&N, but I still really liked it all the same :] It's nice to see things from Ora's point of view, I can't wait for her story to begin! 10/10, of course, dearest Elle.Author's Response: Thank you, thank you! I personally am a huge fan of the dark/angsty tone- at least to write. I find it comes much easier to me than the light tone of N&N, for some reason, probably that I'm a depressing old hag or something, ha.
Ora's point of view is going to be very interesting, I promise. We may not see too much of the action in N&N from her eyes, though surely some will crop up every now and then, but you'll find that Ora has an intriguing story of her own to tell. And tell it she will, trust me.
Thank you so much, you wonderful thing you! Report Review
Oh boy. Elle. This is not the story I thought it would be. It's so much, ridiculously even, better than what I was expecting. And I'm excited and nervous for it. I still think that if you can focus on N&N you should, but I completely and totally understand why you've been so eager to get this started. And I'm really really glad you just let yourself. Even if it is pulling a me.
"It was always something she put on; it was not something she was." That's a fantastic line by the way. Like really genuinely publishable great. Not that you need to be great to be published lately it seems...but I digress.
You are fantastic, you are queen. And I love that you've posted this. I look forward to more but I'm definitely patient. And I'm jealous of your mad writing skills combined with speed. Crazy damn jealous.
Your avid fan and friend,
MaisyAuthor's Response: Gah! I am so excited that you get it, that you like it, that you are excited. And nervous. That's an interesting emotion to get from a fiction, isn't it? I'm kind of proud I got that out of you.
Haha, are you thinking of vampire baseball with the "don't need to be great to be published"?
I'm probably not going to update this until I finish N&N, but I couldn't stop thinking about it, I had to let it out somehow. I don't think I can decide on where to start with the plot, though, until after N&N.
I can't wait either, though. Ah! Report Review
