Review #1, by ohmymerlin In Which A Date

26th February 2014:
Hello!

This was so good! I really loved how you intertwined yours and Meg's stories together! It was extremely original!

Although, I do have one bit of crit. You tended to keep changing perspectives and it got a bit confusing trying to keep up with it. Maybe have lines separating between each point of view?

Anyway, I like how you guys made the dates unsuccessful. It's definitely an original spin, I must say!

And poor Emmalyn, getting covered in Butterbeer. I can't imagine that would be fun!

Anywho, this was a great read! Good job! :)

Author's Response: You think our idea was original? Aww, thank you!

Yes, it may have got confusing with the point of view switching but that was because it was more of a third person omniscient piece. I'll look back through it when I have the time and try to make it more clear.

Getting covered in butterbeer isn't how one would imagine Valentine's Day but that's how Emmalyn's ended up, haha.

Thank you for stopping by! It means a lot!

Review #2, by Maelody In Which A Date

21st February 2014:
Haha! The poems! I loved them!

I like how both you and your partner really were able to keep up the humor in such awful first dates. Unfortunately for Albus, his didn't work out in the end. Good! Emmalyn was a little stuck up anyway! Haha expecting goodies on a first date? At least give the guy a chance to see if he'd do anything at Hogsmead! Lol

I like how in the beginning, it started off really bad, and how little details were brought up like the spider, and her weird thing with eyelashes. His defensive response was hilarious, too! Then, with the rhyming, things seemed to pick up a little. She seemed to be either enjoying herself, or trying to get back at him with each one, I couldn't tell. But it was funny, and I had hope for the two haha.

I think Al needs an awkward button. Whenever he's being awkward or about to do something awkward, someone pushes it to help him out haha. Maybe it would have kept him from thinking a kiss would calm her down! He seemed to enjoy it though, so I hope he can get over her easily. Either that, or that they work everything out and she gives him another chance.

I thought this story was very cute and funny. You and your partner did a wonderful job with the connection you chose and the pairs you wrote over. I wish you two the best of luck!

Author's Response: Hehe, yes, Emmalyn is bit stuck up and snobby... but that's what makes her fun in Albus' eyes. ;)

I had some hope for the pair too but alas... it didn't work. She did start to enjoy herself later on in the date and she did kind of use to rhymes to tease him a bit.

The kiss... lol, it was a last minute thought for Albus... a rash decision. Emmalyn was more sad that her Valentine's Day didn't go well than mad at the end.

Thanks for the sweet review. I enjoyed reading all your thoughts. Thanks again!

Review #3, by HeyMrsPotter In Which A Date

18th February 2014:
Hey :) I just read Meg's part of your speed dating entry and really enjoyed it.

I really like that you've used an original character as the focus of your story. Hers and Albus' inner monologues of annoyance and bewilderment at each other really had me laughing. I can only imagine how furious I would be if the guy who had asked me on a date turned up empty handed after having forgotten about the date!I also love that it isn't a date that both participants are thrilled to be going on and their liking of each other happens as the date goes on. The roses are red poems were brilliantly funny too :)

I like the link that you and Meg created between your stories, the fact that the two friends were on seperate dates and Rose ended up ruining Albus' when it was finally going well. This line in particular made me laugh:

Scorpius and Albus looked at each other and they both ran out after their dates like true gentlemen should.
-I could picture this moment exactly

Their kiss was really cute and him telling Joey she was a bad snog was really funny, I'd love to read about Emmalyn's reaction if she heard he'd said that about her!

This was such a lovely lighthearted and fun entry from you and Meg, I really enjoyed them both!

Dee :)

Author's Response: Gah, I need to get better at responding to reviews!

Hi Dee! I loved reading your reviews. And I am so, so, so happy that you found the 'roses are red' poems funny. I tried to keep them witty yet humorous, so it means a lot that I kind of pulled them off.

Valentine's Day doesn't always go the right way for some people so I guess I wanted to portray that part of the holiday but at the same time create a light-hearted fic. Yes, I did use an OC as the focus of the story. I have a tendency to create strong female characters so this time I wanted to make one that is quirky, weird and cute. :)

And Albus... he really didn't think she was a bad snog. Now I feel like I want to write another one-shot for the pair... but we'll see. :)

Thanks for the lovely review! It made my heart melt!

Review #4, by Dark Whisper In Which A Date

17th February 2014:
Navyfail,

Well, I read your companion piece first, then came to yours.

I really liked your Emmalyn and the crazy thoughts inside her head. The eyelash piece was adorable. And really, Albus's thoughts were hilarious as well. I love the Slytherin in him that enjoyed watching her squirm. XD

My favorite part was your "Roses are Red" poems that were perfect for Valentine's Day! I loved that they were playful slams and that they didn't take much offense.

It was really an enjoyable read and the link to the companion was really cute.

I think Rose should probably apologize though. LOL!

Very cute story in only 72 hours to collaborate! That is not much time!

Anyway, good luck and thanks for making me laugh.

Sincerely,
Dark Whisper

Author's Response: Hello! And you can call me Sama.

Yeah Emmalyn is quite peculiar and kind of crazy. I honestly didn't think I could pull of a character like her but I wanted to give it a shot. Yes... the eyelash scene. From now on I'm going to call it that. That scene wasn't planned at all. It just popped into my mind and then I wrote it down, thinking maybe it won't come out too bad. And I love the Albus that likes seeing people squirm too!

I came up with the "Roses are Red" poems after I wrote the first few paragraphs of the story. And I thought they fit in with Valentines day so they went in the story. And I'm glad you liked them even though my rhymes aren't too good.

Rose didn't actually know she threw her butterbeer at someone else so... her apologizing may not happen, lol.

Yeah, 72 hours isn't too much time but in the end, the rush of it was very fun.

Making people laugh is always a pleasure. And thanks for the wonderful and positive review.

~Sama :)
