Wait. Wait. Nell? Excuse me for my stalker like tendencies, but the same Nell that writes Hello Kitty?! (If your didn't write Hello Kitty then this is extremely awkward and please ignore what I just typed.) Report Review
Really great story you've got going here. Connie is gorgeous.
I hope you keep writing it. Good luck with the writers block xx :) Report Review
really funny ending to the chap! lol wizarding pick up lines!!! Anyhow, I'm glad Connie at least forgave James. Can't wait to read more next chapter Report Review
I loved the chapter, I see Lonnie didn't end up seducing James, but oh well ;)
I loved it, and I'm dying to know what happens! (normally at this point i would say update soon but you have your exams, so revisee man!)
haha great chapter!
-izzy xxAuthor's Response: HOLA!
Connie is not in the mood to seduce. Though, there will be at least 2 seduction attempts in this story if all goes to plan, but who is seducing who?
DON'T REMIND ME! *THANKS YOU*
thank you :) xx Report Review
*Sigh* Connie is so awesome; I long to obtain her level of hipster. Reading this story is like sunshine and lollipops; I get so giddy and I'm all like, "IT'S HIPSTER TIME!" So yeah...cool story bro. James is, like, the dorky boyfriend I've always wanted...I'm guessing he used magic against Connie which is /not cool/. But then it seems like Andrew did it too so I wonder why she's not mad at him. Hmm...THE MYSTERY SLOWLY UNFOLDS.
So yeah, I love this story and I can't wait for the next update! :D
~Jess :DAuthor's Response: I wish I was as hipster as Connie, I'm just your average wannabe-hipster. He did use magic, sort-of. Andrew wasn't directly involved, he just knew and didn't really do anything to stop it, which is what bothered Connie, but she forgave him, because he was just passive.
Thank you Jess! :)

This was great. I love this story. 9/10 : )Author's Response: Thank you! :) xx Report Review
Which one was the text from Elliott? Or did we not see that one?
Also, unsmooth!Scorpius is great for a change.
And I like that you're using muggle references while talking about a squib character's life. If she's not in Hogwarts, of course she has tumblr! It's a nice touch.
Hope your writer's block goes away!Author's Response: Oh, you didn't get to see the flirty text from Eliott (yet).
I'm glad you like my Scorpius.
Thank you, I figure, they have to get muggle education if they're not magical.
I hope it goes away too :) xx Report Review
I need to time to process things, I need to mull over it, I need to reflect about my emotions, then tweet them to the rest of the world, so they can reflect on my emotions on my behalf, and then I need to text Leah about them, so she can give me effective advice. Then, once all the results are in maybe we can be friends.
^ That was hysterical. I know so many people that do this. I used to do the whole texting bit with my friends when I was in high school and it annoys me so much when something comes up on twitter or another social media site and people are like, 'OMG MY LIFE IS LIKE SO HORRIBLE AND BOYS SUCK AND I'M GOING TO GO DROWN MY SORROWS IN PEANUT BUTTER BECAUSE I'M JUST GOING TO BE FAT FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE.'
It's sad that I actually have to talk to these people too. And comfort them.
Anyway! I can't wait to find out what actually happened. It's fuzzy ideas in my head. Being a Squib must suck. Writers block sucks too, I know the feeling. Take your time, don't force anything the words will come when they come. We'll still be here.Author's Response: I know, it drives me mad. KEEP YOUR EMOTIONS TO YOURSELF OR GET PROPER HELP OR JUST SHUT UP.
I can totally empathize, having to calm friends down when they cry and whine about things online.
I have exams, so I'm just loitering around, but not really writing seriously unforunately. :) x Report Review
I can relate so much to Connie. The texts, the tumblr-full-of-hot-boys, the fanfiction reading etc. I love how natural and perfectly nerdinary she is, haha. And Scor-pee-us was hilarious, a different take but awesome all the same. More James in the next one? Great chapter anywhoo.
xxAuthor's Response: She's just an exaggerated me on a nerd high! Maybe more James...I haven't quite planned that far yet! :) xx Report Review
I love this story, it's really original!
I'm so curious to what James did eep!
You're a really good writer and I think you have captured the nature of every single one of us right now, I mean right at this moment, I'm on fanfiction (duh) and tumblr and getting annoyed at other people's grammar!
Anyway, please update soon, it's a wonderful piece of writing :)Author's Response: Awww, thank you!
Connie is really just an exaggerated version of some of my nerdier aspects! :) xx
think i died when you mentioned how cigarettes are sexy, especially on tumblr. no joke, my tumblr is full of skinny indie hippies smoking them- and of course, that supreme poster of kate moss...
anyway. LOVED THIS CHAPTER! the more i read of this story, the more i go, OH MY GOD CONNIE IS THE HPFF VERSION OF ME. because she soo is.
ahh! god i want to know what james & andrew did to her. i have a feeling we're not going to find out until the like, 30th chapter or something, which is pretty annoying. oh well.
another amazing chapter! ♥
bea xoAuthor's Response: Cigarettes are sexy and they kill you too :(
I'm glad you like it. Really? I didn't really see Connie as a character people were going to relate to, I just imagined them laughing with/at her.
Don't worry, you should know by at least chapter 13.
Thank you :) xxx Report Review
Holy Merlin shiz figbang, I freaking loved this. Like a lot. A lot a lot a lot a lotAuthor's Response: I'm glad you liked it :) xx Report Review
I'm in love with this!
'Oh please, we all know that indie people party the hardest...' awks when in our school, it's true. Something about ombre'd hair and ripped tights makes them so much more waste-able.
EW KENDRA. Can't stand her, but then again, it is from Connie's point of view. I love how at Hogwarts, they would be the typical HPFF 'best friends who fell in love story', and then you have Connie, the hipster squib...
AHH I WANT TO KNOW WHAT JAMES DID! Please update soon, this is such an amazing story; I've seen it in the archive a couple of times and never got around to reading it, and I'm so glad that I did!
Bea xoAuthor's Response: Hola!
It is true for my school too, some of my friends/people I know are hispter/indie kids, they get wasted so quickly, they're all lightweights.
Connie's technically the bad guy, since Kendra's done nothing wrong, while Connie is causing drama for herself.
Nobody likes talking about it! Because it's weird and awkward and they'll be dead if any parents find out.
I plan on updating it next, one my new story comes out of the queue. :)

Yet another story I started to read and am now waitingto be updated. I like it and I like Connie (maybe because I'm like her when drinking :P) and all her remarks about the things surrounding her. Keep it going ! :))
Cheers !Author's Response: i am going to update this in a few days, once another story comes out of the queue. I'm glad you enjoy it. :) xx
I've just read this chapter, and your other story with Lonnie, and I love these characters both, so, so much. They're so complex, and you've captured perfectly in the first chapter alone how a squib would feel without making it unrealistic, and despite being a bit of an angst-y start for a new story, I love it to pieces already!Author's Response: I'm glad that you liked them and my odd character portrayals. There's a lot more angst to come, hope that doesn't put you off too much. :)

Uvula, you ask? That sexy dangly bit at the back of your mouth.
^ I love uvula's! Is that odd? Hahaha.
I enjoyed this chapter, for a moment I couldn't remember what had happened last time but it all came back to me in the end. Connie is definitly intense and I loved the Little Mermaid reference, painted a good picture for me. Update whenever you can!Author's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it, I ought to start putting recaps of the last chapter, since it takes me so long to update. That being said, I am updating DI, then BDP. I'm only 400 words into advice for animals. :/ I'll definately update it before my spring break is over. :)
Thank you ♥ Report Review
Love the writing on this story. Update.Author's Response: Thank you Report Review
I really liked this story! It has a lot of potential! I've never read a story where a squib was the main character and I think it's brilliant, there's so much room for great stories. I already don't like Kendra (even though she seems nice at first!).Author's Response: I'm glad you like this story! Thank you, and Kendra isn't bad, Connie is just blinded. :) x Report Review
I like this story a lot because it's different. With the whole squib thing. You have to keep updating (:Author's Response: I'm glad you like it and the squib concept. :) xx Report Review
I squealed when I saw you'd updated. I'm actually in love with this story; the way you write, the way you portray your characters, everything. Can't wait for the next chapter!Author's Response: Hahah! I'm blushing :) I hope you can bare the wait :) xx Report Review
Hi Nell :)
YAY! I'm so glad this was updated! If I liked this story before, I /really/ like it now! Connie is such a great narrator; I really enjoy her viewpoint on the world and her commentary. And that ending! Wow! I really want to know what happens next! Connie and James have this connection, a tension, that I find kind of electrifying.
I can't wait for the next chapter! 10/10 :D
~JessAuthor's Response: JESS! :)
I'm glad you're liking it more. Connie is such an unreliable narrator.
Hopefully, I'll update soon.
Thanks for the review.

Your plot is very original, and I get all the nerdy refrences:
My mother is fairly nerdy, enducing me to know the ups and downs of nerd language.Author's Response: Thank you! Glad you get all the nerdy references. My dad is a nerd, I grew up watching the star wars episodes :) x Report Review
Wow. Just wow. I really do believe you are the best new author on fanfic, seriously i do. The PERFECT blend of humour, drama, heartache and romance, it BRILLIANT! Im just sad there isn't more yet! Well, at least now i can say i've known this fic before it becomes one of the most famous on here, which by the way it WILL. :D You are SUCH an amazing writer! I hate James at the moment, i really do! Why would he desert her just because she's not a witch!? I don't understand!? And i'm sorry but Ken is a cow. Nuff' said :)
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE update soon! I look forward to your new chapters so much!
Becky :)Author's Response: Wow, I'm slightly wowed by this review. I'm super-dee-duper flattered. Thank you.
You only hate James and Ken, because Connie does. They're not that /bad/.
Thank you so much, well, if you read it dear imagination is in the queue. :) Report Review
