Review #1, by naflower05 Chapter 7

24th October 2014:
Good couple of chapters!! Sorry I haven't been able to review, life's been pretty busy lately! Your writing is definitely getting better with each chapter! Keep up the good work and update again soon please!! =]

Author's Response: I am undoubtly the worst author ever for, first, not responding to my favorite reviewer ever, but secondly, not updating in more than a month! The struggles of being a busy, social, high school senior are real. But I promise, as I write this, there is a chapter about to be queued. It's not my best work, but it needs to get out of my to-do list! At least to pushes us further in the story. I hope to write more soon, more for everyone who puts up with silly me!
Yours truly,

Review #2, by naflower05 Chapter 4

23rd September 2014:
Ooh! Good chapter! She finally meets them, can't wait to see what happens now. Glad my advice made sense. The story is reading better now, it's often hard to start a story, introduce characters and get readers interested while still being subtle about things. Now that you're getting into the flow it should start to be easier. Looking forward to the next chapter! =] ~

Author's Response: Here's to making progress then! You're absolutely right, starting off is a big challenge for me. The storyline looks great in my head! It just has to come out the same way, and then a little bit better! The next chapter is in the queue, and it's like 2700 words long. Crazy, right? I'm not entirely happy with it, but I couldn't think of a better way to express what I meant. I'll go back later! Thanks again for being such a lovely supportive reader!
Yours truly,

Review #3, by naflower05 Chapter 3

17th September 2014:
Good chapter, I get what you mean about a beta needing to understand where you want to go before they can edit for you. Until you get one here's a tip to think about when you're writing. You don't have to exaggerate a characters personality in order to get it across. The beauty of a story is that the readers get to know the characters bit by bit, and we see new layers and portions of their personality that have never been revealed to us before. While you, the author, know these things about them, expressing them to the readers in a subtler way makes it more enjoyable to read. Not sure if that exactly makes sense in the way I wanted it to, but I hope you kinda get what I'm saying and that it helps you when you're writing the next chapter! Keep it up, writing is hard but the more you do it the better you get! =]

Author's Response: Dearest naflower, what would I do without your help? I did indeed understand what you mean, and I'll have to keep it in mind! My English teachers always talk about "showing and not telling", and it has been a struggle of mine to keep that in play sometimes. The next chapter is in the queue, back to Elizabeth, but my editting for the chapter afterwards will be pretty intense while I think about your suggestion! Thanks for being such a kind, constructive, faithful reader!

Review #4, by naflower05 Chapter 2

15th September 2014:
Interesting idea for a story so far. I'd like to see where you take this. You might want to look into getting a beta reader to go over your chapters and edit them before you submit them, because a lot of your writing sounds more conversational then a story. It will make it seem more developed and people will be more likely to continue reading if the writing quality is higher. I look forward to reading the next chapter and seeing what happens when she sees the marauders and Lily for the first time. Keep writing! =] ~

Author's Response: Very happy to hear you like the base concept, that's always the most important part of writing something decent! A beta reader will probably be a good idea a little later, it's like you read my mind! Right now, my goal is to get some stuff up and running before going back to the beginning. After all, how can a beta edit without seeing the bigger picture of the story? It may change how they edit for me! I really, truly appreciate the review and constructive criticism, and the next chapter, already in the queue, isn't in Elizabeth's viewpoint! However, there will be a meeting soon :) Have a lovely day!
