Review #1, by AbraxanUnicorn Easy Bait

28th October 2016:
“What?” I splutter. “I thought that was a rhetorical question!”


Scorpius shrugs. “Maybe it was, maybe it wasn’t.”
One of my favourite of many favourite bits from this chapter. I'm loving this story but sad that it seems to have not been updated for a while.

Author's Response: I've actually left the story behind because I wasn't feeling it too much anymore, but your review is making me fall back in love with it! Thank you so much for the love I hope I get back to writing it and I hope you keep reading!

"And how dare you. I am the sl*ttiest person I know." Brilliant. I think she should be with Albus, I like the whole 'Bromance' she has going with James. ;)

Author's Response: Thats one of my favorite lines too. :) Thanks so much for the review!

May and James all the way! I can't just bring myself to ship Albus. But I actually found this while looking for some Rose/Scorpius.

Author's Response: May and James seems to be the unanimous chant at this point. Well I feel like I should oblige your search and put a little more Rose/Scorpius in right? That's what this story is lacking :p

So I'm supposed to be writing a paper due tomorrow right now (oops) but I decided to read your story instead and I totally made the right decision! Your story has made me literally laugh out loud multiple times and I just love all your characters especially May. I like May with Albus but after this chapter I am kind of shipping her with James as well oops haha.

Anyway, can't wait to keep reading! Hope you keep writing this amazing story!! :)

Author's Response: Oh my god, I never thought I'd be able to distract someone from their work. I feel honored and slightly horrible haha. Thanks for reviewing :)

Review #15, by oldershouldknowbetter She's out of his league

24th February 2014:

May + James is Emma.

May + Albus is Pride and Prejudice

I've always thought that Emma was the harder sell. Especially if the romantic interest is less in the friend zone and more like a big brother (in Emma's case it was actually her brother {half-brother or something} - even so, eww) So far I see James' role in the story to be far more like an elder brother. He's a year older, she's a she, she was a Malfoy put into Gryffindor. The pranking each other could be his vague attempts at acting like an older brother.
It would be hard, though not impossible, to bring the two together believably.

May and Albus, on the other hand is far easier to do and what's more you have already started down that path. The initial hate is there, check. Because you only hate for two reasons, unless it's an irrational hate (one which has been fostered upon you by others). You hate either because the object of hatred has done you grievous wrong or you hate what you secretly desire but never think you can have.
Now do they actually have regard for each other - In helping Scorpius with his 'Rose problem' we see them agreeing in several ways - so obviously their thoughts must run along similar channels. Also another sign of a P&P style romance is if they esteem the same people. It is easy to dislike someone who likes the things you don't, but if they like the things and people you like then why are they such objects of displeasure?

I'd personally like to see Al and May (Pride and Prejudice will always be my romance go-to choice).
And also the start of it is right there. In fact the way you've set up your story you have the opportunity for a lovely bitter/sweet resolution. In getting Albus to 'snog her and want to' she actually falls for him. So then, when Albus accidentally finds it was all for a bet/dare ... cue drama, angst, heart-break, reconciliation, etc, etc.

Whatever you do though, keep writing. This chapter made me laugh out loud on several occasions (especially the 'your'e gay' dialogue).
Your writing is a joy to read - keep it up!

To reiterate - MAY + ALBUS

Author's Response: I see you have been able to see through my subtle hints. Yes the part where both Al and May agree on something is proof that they can actually get along. And like you said it's the age-old question is it not? Who do you want to end up with? The boy who is your best friend or the one that can spark up something unexpected in you? Thanks for reviewing btw :) I loved reading your reviews. Makes me think hahaha

Review #16, by oldershouldknowbetter Potions Anomalies

24th February 2014:
James or Albus?

Well it all depends, doesn't it, on whether you want to write Emma or Pride and Prejudice.

God bless Miss Austen who with her major works gave us the template for nearly every romance since.

May + James is Emma.

The Emma plot is "What you want may be right under your nose the whole time." Or "the person who has been a true friend/big brother figure turns out to be the right one for you"

May + Albus is Pride and Prejudice

P&P plot is "Two people who initially hate each other for the wrong reasons, are forced together and find quite the opposite is true, they actually come to highly regard each other"

So who would I pick ...

to be continued in the review for the next chapter

Author's Response: In the words of Darcy 'She's handsome but not enough to tempt me," or something along those lines I'm afraid I haven't my copy at this moment.

I find it rather flattering to have my work compared to Ms. Austen's fantastic pieces of literature, I have however never read Emma, but Pride and Prejudice is a favorite. So I can see where exactly you're coming from with it, naturally writing with more of conflict is what you look for, it's the drama that attract's which is why I can see where you're coming from by separating the two pairings here based on books with a somewhat similar base plot line. Clever.

It's hard to choose but I think I prefer James as May's "beau" hahahh. I really like Albus too but I'm not really crazy about the love/hate relationship.
The first chapter was by the way awesome! I was wondering, whe is May planning on starting to cross of the names on her "boys to snog" list?
Nice chapter! I'll be waiting for the next one.

Author's Response: Haha, I'm glad you liked the first chapter. I'm still a little insecure about it I suppose.
As for the boys on the list? That will be up to May, I swear that girl has a mind of your own! Thanks Ella! You'll have a shoutout in the next chapter as my most loyal reveiwer
