Can I just start by saying that my love for Freddie keeps growing by the chapter. The fact that he saught her out to be there for her speaks such volumes about his character — and their whole relationship — and have I mentioned that he’s my favourite?
How can James still think that Flora has nothing to do with the two of them? Stupid boy.
’Too bad for us we both realised at the same electrifying moment that we were touching—touching for the first time since we almost had sex in the Muggle Studies trip to Satan's personal bedchamber.’ I love this paragraph.
Finally James is talking some feelings (don’t think it has slipped past me that you’ve still not ACTUALLY told her how you feel, Jamie boy). I love that he gets a bit embarressed about it, and I love love love Jen’s inner monologe in that whole section! I am getting a bit desperate to see them be, well, them, while at the same time not wanting them to rush into it. A proper dilemma I tell you :)
’I mean, half of why I believed her so easily was because I was thinking it anyway.’ Nail. On. Head. And also the part that I keep thinking about with this. Okay so, Dom and James are cousins but I’ve gathered that they’ve really become friends in the last two years? Regardless, they’ve known each other their whole lives so I can’t wrap my head around how Dom couldn’t have predicted the outcome of telling James that! It seems as if everyone else knew that James had huge jealousy issues, so naturally, one would stay clear of telling a person like that that their SO is flirting/liking/kissing someone else if not to wreak absolute havoc. I REALLY don’t like Dom. The more I think about it (I am clearly to invested in these characters :P) the more horrible she feels...
I saw a quote somewhere ages ago that I love and keep with me, and I find it fitting here in the midst of Jennys inner turmoil: ’I don’t want to be your forever, I want to be your always.’ Cause that’s what it’s about, isn’t it, trusting that the other person sticks with you through everything and always.
Is it wrong that I kind of love that Jenny is a) looking for trouble and knowingly letting that quidditch fight go down, and b) just looking for someone to fight with in general? Her asking out Moss like that was hilarious!
So this is one BIG review, which I could probably cram even more things into but I need to leave it here because I’ve written it on my phone and that’s a bit of a hassle haha!
Until the next one, xoxo
Oh girl - I love Freddie SO much too. Easily the best person in this group. In the world maybe lol.
You have NO idea how desperate I am for James and Jen to just GET IT TOGETHER!! As far removed reader of my own story IÃ¢Â€Â™m like ...okay time for things to Happen. Please. But then as a writer IÃ¢Â€Â™m like no character development. Plot. Things. Lol.
I LOVE that youÃ¢Â€Â™re invested!!! IÃ¢Â€Â™m invested!!! Hahaha. But yeah Dom and James are cousins, same age, they definitely know each other and hang out when the familyÃ¢Â€Â™s all together but for the most part James lives in London and Dom lives far away by the coast. So for most of their childhoods up until Hogwarts they were family but not the best of friends - also Dom was definitely the kid who thought boys were yuck and was bossy and wanted to put on plays and fashion shows and give makeovers. Which wouldnÃ¢Â€Â™t sit well with James. Maybe Freddie. Lmao. But yeah James wouldÃ¢Â€Â™ve grown up with Freddie and then when he met Luke, who also lives in London, him too. And Jenny would stay with James until they started dating so more rules lol. Dom just wasnÃ¢Â€Â™t ever interested in the quidditch bro duo of James and Jen or Freddie or Luke, until of course she was. ANYWAYS, I digress.
Dom 100% knows what James is like and did it on purpose. She did it to make him angry and jealous and hurt Luke by proxy. She didnÃ¢Â€Â™t think heÃ¢Â€Â™d turn it around and get mad at Jen, completely ignoring Luke (to a lesser extent anyway). So yeah, she wanted James to know because she knew how heÃ¢Â€Â™d react - she just didnÃ¢Â€Â™t realise he wouldnÃ¢Â€Â™t react to the right person.
I absolutely adore that quote. That embodies James and Jen so perfectly. Because thatÃ¢Â€Â™s exactly what Jen wants. She wants trust, she wants a steadfast, unwavering love. Forever is too uncertain. Always means heÃ¢Â€Â™s her friend, her anchor (so cliche but true lol).
HAHAHHA no i love it too!!! Reckless Jenny is my favourite kind. Because she does it so methodically and so so stupidly lmao.
Omg IÃ¢Â€Â™m writing this response on my phone too!! Just to while away the time sitting on the tube haha and itÃ¢Â€Â™s so massive!! Sorry about that - I canÃ¢Â€Â™t help myself responding to everything :P
Thanks for this review! CanÃ¢Â€Â™t wait to hear your thoughts on the next chapter xxx P
