House Cup 2015 Hufflepuff

That was beautiful. Absolutely stunning. I loved the way you wrote Seamus' feelings, the language you used was gorgeous, and the feeling behind them was powerful. I could feel the way Seamus felt, the heat in his cheeks when he blushed, the butterflies in your stomach when you're talking to a crush. It was so much fun to read that. I liked the different sections you used as well, all short, and not one that wasn't necessary. It told their story in a short, but super effective way. And it leaves me a little bit of room to play with my imagination. :) I loved the ending so, so much. I think that's the part that pulled on my heart the most. I love that they've really had a happy ending, they've married and grown old together, and I'M SO PLEASED ABOUT IT. There are not enough happy endings in fic. I'm so glad this was one of them. :)

Author's Response: Hi Katie!

Ah *flails* Thank you so much for this review! I love Seamus and Parvati together but this one-shot hasn't had as much attention as some of my other stories, so I was really excited to see that you'd chosen to read it.

I'm so pleased you liked the way that I wrote Seamus's feelings in this - it was so fun to write and I didn't want to tell /too/ much of it - still giving you room to imagine parts of it for yourself (and potentially write them again one day?).

I'm probably (definitely) guilty of contributing to those stories that don't have enough happy endings, but I really loved writing this one and I'm glad that you were happy for them, too, being happy!

Thank you for your lovely review ♥

Hufflepuff House Cup 2015 Review

You had me at penguins.

"He loves the way that her lips curl around his name." Well I love the way that line is beautiful. So there.

I love that you mad Parvati an auror. She's pretty hard core from all she's done of the yaars, but people tend to overlook that.

His skin is like strawberries and cream, no wonder Parvati wants to eat him up. I mean...

Aw, it was so sweet that he took her back to a boat in the lake. That's such a creative little detail, and I really like how it echoes back to their time together in canon.

I'm really glad that this story had a happy ending. It was moving through time so fast that I was afraid it would end at a point when they weren't together any more. Yay for cutes!


Author's Response: Penguins! ♥ How could I not include them?

I really enjoyed writing this story, in spite of the fact that I don't often write fluff - it was so fun to write and I really love Seamus and Parvati together. I'm so glad that you enjoyed this story and the different details and lines in it!

Thank you so much for this wonderful review!

This is the first time I've read a Seamus/Parvati story and now I want to go and read ALL of the stories! I just cannot get over how adorable this is. I love how it's so clear how much Seamus just adores Parvati throughout this whole thing, there's this gorgeous air of disbelif from him all the way through that she's really with him. It just makes my heart swell.

Also, I have to say I love how Irish your Seamus is (that made much more sense in my head) I just meant by your use of 'mam' and that's grand', I can totally hear his voice in my head and it makes this story seem all the more real to me.

Now, if you'll excuse me while I go and hardcore ship Seamus and Parvati.

Author's Response: Dee! I'm super behind on review responses so just replying now *hides* but better late than never, right?

I'm so pleased that you liked this story, though! I love Seamus/Parvati stories but I haven't actually read that many of them, and I'm really excited that this made you want to go and read more stories about the couple. I'm not big on writing fluff (I prefer making people cry :P) but I'm so happy this worked!

Hehe, I love Ireland and the Irish (I'm part Irish myself) and I couldn't not include it in the story - I feel like it's such a part of his character and identity, and I'm glad that you liked it!

Thank you so much for this brilliant review, lovely! ♥

Review #4, by patronus_charm Infinite

23rd December 2014:
Yayayaya, hi again Sian!

Can I say there was something very John Greeny/Fault in Our Starsy about this and I really liked it! All the imagery with the stars and infinity was beautiful and really reminded me of his writing so that made this a perfect present for Nadia! Another thing I loved about it was that it showed how easily those two might not have ended up together in all the possibilities of the world but thanks to gravity pulling them together they did end up together. I'm not sure if that made any sense but wah I loved all that imagery.

They were so adorably and awkwardly cute together and all those little moments revealed loads of aspects of their relationship which I just loved reading about, like how Parvati said she liked his voice and Seamus knew she really meant his accent and how he was always looking out for her during the battle. It just made them so real and genuine and I am now shipping these two big time as it felt as if the two of them should be canon.

Wah, your style in this was lovely too as it was so simple in a way but conveyed so much and was really lovely and reminded me again of John Green so whoo go your style! ♥

The ending! ♥ Aw, that was such a lovely and beautiful way to tie up the story and I can just imagine them floating off into infinity always being in love and that's just such a cute image to have and I'm in love with it a lot right now!

A fab story and I will be back again soon! ♥


Author's Response: Hey again!

This was a really different style for me and something a lot more minimalistic than what I normally write, but I'm so glad that you liked it, and that you can even mention John Green's style comparing it to this is just making me squee. I know how much Nadia loves him so that was in a way the sort of style I was aiming for but I had no hopes of ever getting near it :P

I actually really love Seamus and Parvati together and all of these little moments were strangely fun to write for someone who doesn't write very much romance at all (unless it's angsty, because you know me :P). I'm so glad that you're shipping them too!

Wah you're far too nice to me and I don't even know what to say in response to this review, I'm just a mess of rambly thank yous, but you really made my day with this! Thank you so much!

Review #5, by MissesWeasley123 Infinite

4th September 2014:


I'm really really flattered you wrote something of this sort of awesomeness for me. Makes me feel so... wow. I'm very unworthy of this kind of love lol.

You talk of Seamus and Parvati and them and their love and wow, it's the most beautiful thing in the world. You sneak in those small moments like with the henna and it makes me emotional. That's what true story telling is. I'd have loved this whether it was written for me or not, but DUDE you wrote this for ME like ME NADIA I wow. ♥ sort of flabbergasted at this sort of... WOW.

Those moments the ones with the dialogue, the dancing the no need of music... these are the things that I love the most. You put so much heart and thought into this and man Sian, you're so brilliant in every way and I hope you know that.

Truly, you had me at penguins. ♥

Thank you for this wonderful gift. I've never had something so valuable gifted to me ever before. ♥

Author's Response: Sneaky? Me? I'm not sneaky!

Nadia, STOP. You totally deserve this and actually a better story than this, but unfortunately I couldn't write anything for you that improved on this story.

Seamus and Parvati! ♥ I couldn't not write them for you, because I was all mean in DotF and now I had to be nice because they do deserve to be together and I'm so happy you liked the way that I wrote them, because you know I'm no good at writing fluff!

And all those little moments were my favourite to come up with, the henna and the dancing and all the little conversations. I'm so, so, happy you liked this and thank you for being such a great friend, Nadia! ♥

Review #6, by mymischiefmanaged Infinite

3rd September 2014:
Hi Sian,

This is a really lovely one-shot. I have a lot of love for Seamus and am always keen to read about him, especially after the war, and you did it really well.

I loved how you used the theme of the sky. It ties the whole thing together really beautifully, and gave a theme to their love that doesn't feel too calculated. Parvati's 'and you are the stars, my love' is a wonderful line.

Your comment about penguins mate for life was adorable as well. It has a very different tone to the rest of the story but I love it so that doesn't matter :)

You've done a wonderful job of giving tiny bits of characterisation that really make the reader care about your characters. I especially loved Seamus's mother, telling him he's got her blessing because he loves Parvati, after the was so scared to introduce the two of them. It captures something really special about Seamus and his relationship with his family as well as his relationship with Parvati.

I really enjoyed reading this. You have a beautiful writing style and there are some wonderful lines in here, so thanks for the swap!

Much love,

Emma x

Author's Response: Hi Emma!

I really love Seamus and Parvati together, and Seamus was fun to write about in this story.

The theme of the sky and the stars came to me with the title and those last lines, so I'm really happy that you liked the theme tying their story together!

I'm really pleased that you liked the smaller bits of characterisation as well with the tiny details that I included - it's only a short one-shot, so I'm glad you were able to care about the characters here! The moment with Seamus's mother was great to write as well, as I always imagine him being worried about that :P

Thank you so much for this wonderful review and for the swap!
