When James showed up I literally started dancing in my seat. And now I'm actually panicking because I didn't realize I was at the last chapter and I'm desperate to know what happens next!!

please continue writing

Author's Response: I'm sorry I've taken so long to respond. For Carpe Diem I've realised that my writing had changed A LOT since I started writing this, and therefore I've decided to edit all the chapters again. The plot should remain roughly the same however elements may change. I will continue to edit what I've done and update that before I continue with the actual plot unfortunately. But I'm really glad you'd like this to continue.

Author's Response: Haha thank you, sorry this reply is well overdue. I've decided to edit all chapters before continuing as my writing style has changed and developed since I started this, so I'll be editing before I do that.
I'm glad you like it though, and hopefully the plot will not change too drastically as I edit.

Aww james is a sweetheart after all or is he still an egoistical jacka**

Author's Response: that's a difficult question tbh so I guess its not a definite answer - maybe he could be both who knows?

Nice build up! but I noticed you're mixing up names a lot. That is very confusing :(

Author's Response: yeah, thanks for the review - this story is getting sorted (at some point) and so the names will be secure in the redone version

20th May 2015:
okay, what happened?
why did this stop?
I've read this before and found it again and was like yay maybe it's been updated but it hasn't been and that makes me really sad.
this story is so good and I can't wait to see what happens but it stopped and that's really upsetting
literally i'm nearly crying and that is NOT sarcasm

anyways if you ever write more please tell sad old me because I love this and want to read more

from upse old me xx

Author's Response: omigosh thank you . i am still writing don't worry I've just been going through a lot at the moment with school and I'm moving country and it's all quite stressful. It's been updated because I'm actually editing each chapter, slightly redoing the story although not by much.

I'm so glad you like it, thats fantastic and I will update, i know its been a while but hopefully will be soon.

I always love it when I find a Next Gen fluff that's both entertaining and well written! I like all your characters and the general plot. I really hope you decide to continue this story! :)

Author's Response: Thank you for the super nice review - I'm really glad you liked it. I'm going through a bit of a complicated time right now with school and other stuff so my writing has really taken a back seat. I hope to get back to it and definitely this story soon

Im very impressed by this story.. most "next-gen" fanfics are so alike, but this one is sooo diferent, and i totally love it.. ;] Im looking forward to many chappies soon.. ;D

Author's Response: Thank you. I did want to try something a bit different but wasn't sure if this was too cliche or not. I'm glad you don't think it is.

Review #17, by Josette_Phoenix It's Only A Game Of Truth Or Dare

19th June 2014:
I love the gang! They're all so colourful, I feel like I'm in 10 Things I Hate About You or something! The Truth or Dare was an excellent medium for the reader to get to know all Ridley's mates, great job with that - I can see a little of my high school group in each of them. Logan is hilarious, by the way. I think he'd remind everyone of a few of their own guy friends ;)

I can't wait for the brewing storm, what with Ridley being the rebel and planning to insult the Golden Boy's son! Go Ridley!

Just one thing - just after the beginning, when Zara and Logan are bickering about the messy room, Logan says 'Your disgusting' then Zara says '... and your just so mature.' It should be you're, not your :)

Thanks for the great read!


Author's Response: Thanks. I love the gang too to be honest. I wanted them all to be different, have their own special personalities but not be all random and not go together. And I love 10 TIHAY so I very much appreciate that comment.
I wasn't sure at the start how to get the whole thing going, so Truth or Dare was a kind of default move which may have been cliche but I'm glad it worked out well.
Logan is a personal favourite as well - I have big things planned for him.
Thank you for the your/you're tip - I seem to always get that wrong and never learn.
You are very much welcome

Review #18, by Josette_Phoenix Hogwarts Is a High School (Duh?)

19th June 2014:
Well here I am with some long-overdue reviews - get used to me, you'll be hearing quite a bit ;)

This is so original - I love it. Instead of the four houses we have the more normal high school cliques, but with the interesting spin that everyone's a witch or wizard. I can't wait to read on to see what you do with this!

Also, I love the idea that you've made the Wotter kids "devil childs in the making". I'm so used to reading stories wherein the Roses and Albuses are good and pure - with their faults, of course, but ultimately with hearts in the right place. Looking forward to seeing how hateful you make them! Also I'm VERY intrigued to see that you seem to be making the Puffs emo-ish children of depravity - something new!!

Just everything about this is unique, I'm gonna stop reviewing now so that I can read the next chapter!!


Author's Response: Haha Thank you for reviewing you really made me smile.
I'm glad you like it. I thought it might be a bit cliche what with cliques but that doesn't seem to be the reaction I'm getting which is good.
I didn't want a nice Rose. She doesn't have to be cutesie and clever, like most make her. Just because she's Hermiones daughter doesnt make her like her was my thinking and I'm glad that works out.
Thank you again

Review #21, by AlexFan And Watch The Mess

24th February 2014:
Woohoo! I'm so excited that you finally got a chance to update! I was expecting something a lot harsher to be going on this chapter because everyone seems so hellbent on being in these cliques of theirs. I assumed that everyone would just jump into outright war. By the looks of it though, Ridley seems to be exactly what Hogwarts needed judging by the fact that Rufus offered to hang out with her and Dom hasn't ripped her to shreds and James actually seems to notice her existence.

Speaking of James, woah! Where did that come from! The very last thing that I expected was for him to actually apologize for his behaviour. It seems that maybe he isn't such a jerk after all. Obviously James doesn't get told off a lot but it's nice of him to take responsibility when he is in the wrong.

The only CC I have was that you used the wrong form of your/you're throughout the chapter but other than that I really enjoyed this and I thought it was great. Good luck with school!

Author's Response: Thank you for the sweet review. Hopefully the reason why there hasn't been outright war will be revealed in the next chapter. But your right, they needed this outburst. I loved writing James. I think after the last chapter everyone assumed he was an utter jerk but I didn't really want him to be quite like that. His parents have obviously raised him with proper manners and morals, and he has just gotten so mixed up in this Hogwarts that he forgets who he is. More on him will be revealed.

Thank you for pointing out the your/you're thing, I will have to check up on that every time I right.
Thank you again for the so sweet review

Review #22, by Raven The Bookworm And Watch The Mess

9th February 2014:
Oh, god. Oh, god. I am laughing so hard right now. James Sirius Sex God Potter. That's a wonderful name you've given him. And if I were Ridley, I'd be wondering if James is bipolar. He's got a great personality. Keep up the good work.

Author's Response: Well I'm not sure if I can take full credit for the sex god potter. In Angus Thongs and Perfect Snogging she calls Robbie a Sex God. It kinda came from there.

To be honest I haven't really made James bipolar, he just has a very changeable popularity.

But thank you for the really nice review

Review #23, by illaiyna And Watch The Mess

8th February 2014:
this was a really good chapter and I liked the interaction between Ridley and James and how he didn't really come across as egotistical as she thought. only one problem really, i'm a bit picky with dialogue and sometimes there was spacing between the writing which is probably just a typo like this -
"I know," I frowned," But that's just made me even more worried.
also one more thing on the dialogue - sorry for being so picky haha xD - but when there's actions you don't put the comma, just a full stop, so rather than it being like -
"Yes, okay, but no one knows who you are," Blair flipped her black hair over her shoulder.
it would have a full stop rather than a comma there because it's an action. same with the first example, with the 'she frowned' it would be a full stop not a comma.

still, really enjoyed this chapter and I love all their friends and the dynamics between them. can't wait for the next chapter! xD

Author's Response: I'm glad you liked the chapter, and I will take all of your points on board. Punctuation and such is my biggest problem continually, so thank you for the helpful pointers, I will definitely try and stop doing them. Thank you for the help :D

Review #24, by miss little angel And Watch The Mess

8th February 2014:
yay! You updated! :D I really like this story. I like how you've portrayed the Weasley/Potter clan and how certain people can just control Hogwarts because of looks and who their parents are. I think you've done a wonderful job so far with this story and hope you'll be able to update pretty soon :)

Author's Response: Thank you, I'm glad you like it. I just wanted to give a different look to Hogwarts and Hufflepuff and the Wotter clan, and I hope its turned out well. I'll try and update sooner this time

Review #25, by Sakura9879 And Watch The Mess

8th February 2014:
First of all, I cannot begin to express how psyched I was to see you had finally updated. I literally started screaming. I was especially surprised because for the past couple of months the story has supposedly been updated but it never had a new chapter.

Also, YES! JAMES IS HEAVILY FEATURED IN THIS ONE! wee! I'm also happy about how their conversation turned out, it set a perfect leas in for the rest of the action.

Hope to see an update from you sometime very soon!

Author's Response: I'm so sorry about all the fake updates. It was all these silly chapter images, which I love, but it updates the story and for that I am eternally sorry. But I'm glad your so excited about this, because I'm getting much more excited about this, so yay.

I'm really glad I got James in this, as I originally wasn't planning on having him in it. But it worked out so well. I do feel it will lead on to further chapters, which I'm looking forward to writing.
