YAY YAY YAY YAY!!! More Finding Faith!! I'm a very happy person because of this (:
OOH! I read (previous chapter AN) that you aren't so fond of your title, so how is Faith Being Found or Fixing Faith or something like that? Just figured I'd give you something to think on...
I LOVE YOU FOR POSTING THIS!!! Finding Faith made me a happier person and I like being happy, so you should write and post in this story as often as possible, without forgetting about your other stories, of course!
KEEP WRITING :D
Shay_GryffAuthor's Response: Thank you so much! And thanks for the title ideas! I'll definitely give them thought, although there is a definite possibility that I'll keep what I have right now because I'm far too lazy to switch it. But the ideas are appreciated :)
I've got about several little chapters started that need to be finished at the moment. Not sure when that'll happen, but I'll post them sometime.
Thanks for reviewing!

Aw, Fred! I think he's really cute in this chapter, and I love the way you write and how each character is written differently, though you can still tell it's the same writer. You're really a great writer :)Author's Response: I love Fred. He was always one of my favorites. I'm glad each character seems different from each other. I was a bit worried they all might seem to similar, but I guess it all turned out okay! Thank you so much! Report Review
I love this idea of seeing James' point of view. I really enjoyed Finding Faith and love James and Val as a couple, so it's great to see the other side! I hope you add more to this story!Author's Response: Thanks! I'm glad you like this. I just wasn't ready to give up this story - I'm far too attached! For the most part, this will be written from James's POV, but I will add in other people as well. More will definitely come, though I don't know how quickly. Thanks for reviewing! Report Review
Good work freddy boy! keep it up ! I luv this chapter it made me smile at her nicknames and by the end my face resembled a chesire cat . I got to say your pairings are awesome so (its just a request really) could u give us some more of ur scoroses u no i luv them really .
So also i wanted 2 ask u 2 read my new story its utter bulshit really m just u no hoping ull maybe think its okay?
Its a scorose cum albus/oc by the name of trust.Author's Response: Haha, thank you so much! I really enjoyed writing this. There won't really be any Scorose in this story, but I do currently have one chapter up of a story that will have them as the main pairing. Expects updates for that fairly soon!
Sure, I'll read your story! My life is sort of busy at the moment, so it may take a bit of time before I get around to it, but I definitely will!

that was so sweet and cute! i'm a huge james/val fan from finding faith, so, i just loved it.
btw, who is the actress you've used as faith on the banner? she's very pretty.
update soon. :)Author's Response: Thank you :) I really like them too!
The actress is Diana Agron. She isn't really how I imagine Faith to look (neither is the guy who's James) but I haven't really found anyone who does. But I do agree, she is gorgeous. Report Review
Hey Laura! *waves enthusiastically* Long time, no see.
After reading this chapter, I'm like- why did you break up Friannon? The beginning of their relationship is so cute, you feel they're one of those couples who're going to get married and have children together. Perhaps you can write a chapter where the old flames are rekindled?
You really managed to pull off Fred's POV really well- while you showed him infatuated with Rhiannon, you also gave a very good explanation for that. Also, I really like the realistic depiction of his self-doubt and hesitancy and stuff, what with him fancying his ex-girlfriend's best friend.
The return of Faith and her awetastic (how long since i've used that word!) nicknames! I smile in reminicense.
Hoping for more of this good stuff,
P.S. One thing that has been bugging me for long- what exactly did James do to connect woth his family after he first started talking to Faith. You know, when Al tells Faith how James asked Percy about his job and *gasp* seemed interested. Perhaps that could be incorporated in a chapter?Author's Response: Hello Akansha! I'm back! Get ready for more updates again.
Friannon broke up because they sort of grew apart. Fred was off gallivanting about the world and learning to live on his own while Rhiannon was still in school. Sometimes, long distance relationships work out, but most of the time they don't. It became too difficult for the two to stay together, so they ended it, though neither of them particularly wanted to. These things happen in life, unfortunately. However, I won't say for certain that they'll never get back together. There's certainly a possibility.
Thank you so much! I like writing Fred, though I found it to be one of the more difficult things I've done. He has a rather unique voice that was hard to grasp.
More shall come! Thanks for the review, love.
P.S. That, my dear, is actually a rather good idea. I realize that I didn't show a lot of James's growth as a person, because it happened before the story actually started. I hadn't particularly planned on writing those bits, but now I think I will. I'll add it to the list. Thanks for the suggestion! Report Review
I'd really like if you did some more of these. It might be cool to see from a pov other than James or Val, too. Parents, maybe? Or Joy?Author's Response: Thanks. This will probably be mostly James, I think, but there definitely will be other people as well! Fred and Rhiannon for sure, and I definitely could try something with the parents or Joy. I know I wanted to show more childhood scenes. Thanks for the suggestion! Report Review
this is a great little extra bit too :)Author's Response: Thanks :) There will be more, eventually. It just won't be updated frequently. Report Review
Say a yay for James' POV!
You know, creepy as it sounds, I love getting into James' head. It makes stuff so much clearer, because, gotta admit, James Sirius Potter is one uncomplicated character you've created. It also feels good to see things from a blokes perspective (James in Choices would be a fine example). You've not made your James a stereotype, you've given him a deeper, more philosophical side, and to hear his thoughts is absolutely riveting. Besides, don't we all nurse an itsy-bitsy crush on Harry Potter's eldest son? (oh, and Second son too.)
I was expecting a little comment from James on how extremely gobsmacked he was when Faith kissed him so suddenly. But it was great all the same. And the embarrassment that followed was hilarious.
You once said that James is based on a person you know. We've done enough to praise Faith's growth as a character, but I think we haven't appreciated James, and his role as a catalyst to bring about the change in her nature. And seeing how James was the person, who like an expert, restored Faith's faith, I think I can say that the person he's based on must be quite a good human being and friend of yours.
I lovedthe last bit of their conversation. Espesh, the cheeky bit. Faith and James are all acting like an enormous puddle of adorableness. I love it.
Please, don't give up on this story, and do continue. I'm kinda hoping to see something like that Quidditch match from someone else's perspective.
Hugs and high fives,
PS. I knew it was James who came to visit her in the Hospital Wing, I knew it!
PPS. My newest fic, an Albus/OC, is finally out. Do check it out and leave me your opinions.
PPPS. (whew, this is huge!) You would not believe what I saw today. This boy at a party I went to, and he looked like an Albus Potter reincarnate. True, we don't have a solid description of Al, and his eyes were brown rather than green, buti still went into a fangirl spaz. I know, i'm pathetic.Author's Response: James is a lot of fun to write, in both this and in Choices. As someone who has many brothers and male cousins and friends, I spend a lot of time around guys. Therefore, writing from their perspective isn't too difficult for me. Sometimes I wonder if I'm making them too girly, but whatever.
The reason there was no comment on James being really surprised at Faith's kiss attack is (and I really didn't make this clear in the chapter) because deep down, he did know that Faith liked him back. Everyone else could see it, and he'd been told on several occasions, but he just kept letting his doubts and fears take over. But in truth, he really did know how she felt about him - the kiss was just a concrete confirmation.
Yes, James is based off someone I know. He's a really good friend of mine and truly an amazing person. He read this story when I told him I wrote him into it, and he's been one of my strongest (non-internet) supporters. He even kind of looks like James :)
You want Quidditch, eh? I'm sure I could do something... probably another James POV (most of this story probably will be). We'll see. Thanks for the suggestion! I'm always open to more!
P.S. Of course it was James. Who else would it be? ;)
P.P.S Yay! I'll go read!
P.P.P.S. Long reviews are good :) I like long reviews. And that is so cool! I love it when I meet someone who looks like a book character. Like I said, my friend looks like my imagination of James. Report Review
