Tom Fenton... Tom Felton? connection? hahaha :) Great story!
Author's Response: Fun with names is a perk of fan fiction. Reviews are another bonus, so thank you for letting me know you liked the reference . . . and the story! :)
That was hilarious and cute! I can see how that would be a very rewarding chapter. It's beautifully written.
Author's Response: As Tonks would say, "Ta, Thanks!"
For a second, I thought you'd said "Pottermore" instead of "Potterverse", and I was sad. I really wish I had access to "Pottermore".... Lucky Beta people... I have such wonderful plans for the greatest achievement in my personal fanfiction history, but I need the facts before I start distorting them.
Anyhoo, enough rambling... This story is amazing. I knew it would be, but I figured I should let you know.
Author's Response: Good luck finding out your facts, and I feel like a lucky writer person to have you reading my stories.
No, I didn't miss Evan. Quite frankly, I still want him dead, but I've almost given hope that it will happen. Amazing chapter. I'm sorry it's taken me so long to get to this. College has been hectic!
Author's Response: Evan will have to live with the consequences of his choices. That's better punishment than death. :) Thanks for finding time to read when life and college are hectic.
I'm so sad that this is the end:( It seems like just two or three days ago I began this adventure--oh wait, I did :) And it was beautiful. So worth the late nights and early mornings and the following day spent very, very sleepy, and then doing it again anyway.
Oh, like he'd say no! Scrummy ideaaa
Author's Response: Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end. I always hum "Closing Time" at the end of stories. Thank you for spending time out of your valuable youth (^_~) to read. I heart you for that!
*gasps sadly* I"m almost done! How did that happen? So sad....
Heheh searhing Mer's was fun. And oh my gosh. Evan...I don't like him, especially since his definition is gentleman has nothing to do with courtesy, but I always loved his name, even before Shmosier. And it's making life all melt-worthy, even if his speech kills all the good stuff about his name.
Hehhe. Cooing. Blehehe.
Tehehe. Valentine's Day flashback:)
I knew she was going to say "I need him" before she did! Yessss.:)Well she does. But it was still mucho sweetondo.
I LOVED the visit to Sendak's--from Evan getting owned in the face to Tonks quite courteously chomping on the flower.:)
Oh my gosh that's SO cute! I'm so excited for their honeyymoonnn:)
Very wonderful chapter! Can't wait for the last one!!
Author's Response: You're the one who's sweet to take the time to review! You've made me relive the story and grin at your comments. Ta, thanks!
I hate the way Tom & Julia interrupted their night. I know it was necessary, but still! She didn't even close her legs!
Yummy conversation with Mr. Troll-la. :) And giggle. I actually laughed at her daydream in the lift. I don't much care for Catherine. I'm glad Tonks owned her in the FACE. You know, verbally.
Oh, it seemed quite obvious to me that it was Maris and Boles. I was unaware that it wasn't. I mean, they're one of the few who were upset, right? And doesn't blackmail tend to lead, to well, blackmail. Especially among the Blacks?
Author's Response: Indeed it does!
What is with Remus-la and sleep-cursing everyone he loves all over the place. And this inconsolability excuse? Wahh. Nevermind a couple quotes later I forgave him for being awesome :) He's complimenting her..erm..arse. That's both funny...and weird.Weirnny!
Remus acts on impulse too, sometimes. :D
It's only weird until you've been complimented, lol.
Haha. Tonks writing down her favorite fear sounds like...well, me, if I tried the same thing. ;)
Heheheh...she wanted to follow suit...you amuse me, you do. Poor Jerry-la. But I loved their conversation at Jimmy's Pizza, heheheh.
With Remus, why does it seem like his lines of Encouragement and Seduction are blurred...if not on the same axis...if not the same line? XD
I gasped at her plan. That is INGENIOUS! ILoveHer!!! Dung Heap...bleheheh.
And at the end...sigh. crying, again.
Author's Response: Yeah, Tonks is mixed up and Remus has trouble toeing the line now and then.
I read the beginning author's note. I laughed at the part about Harry.
Bubbles is so totally weird. I kind of love her.
I LOVED Tonks's shrink lesson! Woah. Did she let her read the pad?! Scandalous. And awesome. Tonks's ending is making me cry. I don't know why. And now I really want an eclair...no...a banaynay with seanut butter....Hmf. Your stories always make me want to grow the hell up already and be like Tonks (in essence, I mean; i.e., loving adorable boyfriend that isn't the tenth-grade prude kind, awesome job, friends, partner ((in this case, Jerry)); adventures and fun things she doesn't necessarily want to do) only I'd do her life ten times better. I mean, when I want to grow up in that panging, similar-to-nostalgic, weird way, I guess I'd have to have that whole 'wizarding world' thing going for me...I'll let you know how it works out for me.
And please don't tell me to enjoy my youth. I'll have plenty of time for that when I'm older! ;)
Author's Response: Nah, when you're older you'll be too busy being old enough to know better and too young to care! I say enjoy when you want to enjoy and angst when you want to angst. :)
First off: Rita drunk was hysterical.
Second thing: Rita hooking up with Paul was not okay!
Third: I tried saying it three times fast; it didn't work. Sexyshadowsnogsnexyshlethmenui...:)
Rita is such a PRAT. I want to KILL HER!!! I LOVED Tonks reciting the poem though. I was hysterical, and perfect, and generally awesome. You're generally awesome!
Poor Tonks and her involuntary reactions...I think she was ready to give just a tiny bit more, but her body is so used to what her mind repels...it's hard. But it's hard to get over it when Remus doesn't give her any chance...I'm not explaining this quite right. But do you know what I mean?
Author's Response: Rita's a fool for love, and yup, I know exactly what you mean!
Giggle. Dirty-minded. That's what I heard...without her prompting... I suspected that's why she was hiding her face, but even so...evermore..it is useful to hear her, just so I know I'm not, well, alone in my head.
Bahahaha. Judging by the placement of the comment (after the moan) I guess I know what chocolate is a sub for! Apparently a good one! And no, Tonksywonksiekins, you're not the only prudelikefeeling person in the wiz world not mussin' up with their Love Muffin!
His price...priceless! I was hysterical. And I secretly liked the puns about his mum keeping mum. XD
'Anne wouldn't...' Alex gasps.
"I'll think of you when casting charms." Uhm, what? Creeper central, beep beep, back up, Huge Effing Creeper coming through...
I LOVE the Patils. They're so cute!!
"Aside from altruism?" Oh please, Rosier. Shut up, I hate you. But your plan sounds totally work-worthy. Tell Remus to get over himself! Blackmail is so much more fun! And after all,
You're definitely not alone, ;).
Yay for you liking puns! Have you ever read Piers Anthony? I'm always happy to push Ogre Ogre as my favorite punny fantasy novel.
Remus can't have fun if it's against his principles. Sigh.
The groping was totally funny. As for Lowman...totally creepy! Ugh!
Remus. Is. CHEATING. He can't pull the "I expect you to respect my decisions" card (and YES that was in a snarky, bitter tone) when really HIS decisions are to respects HERS. CHEATER!!
OWNED! REMUS.JUST.GOT.SERVED! YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
Author's Response: :D
My mom thinks I'm like, mental. Just because I was happy-dancing last chapter. Then again, sex in a tent has never been so...not the right time or place. Even though Cami stripped last chapter. Totally weird, thank god Sirius put up the wards...uhm...for the first time.
That whole scene in the beginning was totally....sad-making. And the conversation with Sirius was totally...rude. "At least she's not crying from sexual frustration." I would've slapped him.
Ooooh, Alex is using her cold angry voice. Someone's got some problems.
Shoot, that's me.
Yay I LOVED her dream visited by Morpheus Smorpheus! Such good things. "You sound like Kingsley too, all dark chocolate-y."HAHA. She shoulda kept kissing him, but thank god she didn't follow! It's true, you know:
If you love something, let it go;
If it returns, it is yours;
If it does not, it never was.
I'm so glad you liked her Pansy impersonation! That would be fun. :D
I'm sure your mom has her own happy dance. It might even look a little like yours--and you'd probably think she was mental if you saw her doing it, heh.
Very snazzy-wa escape plan, Kerichi-la. Alex approves.
Ohmygod my parents are listening to something where some creeper keeps saying "It had to be you!" And I'm having SUCH flashbacks! Yay!
Ohmigosh that was hysterical, Sirius-la. I hope they take the mickey out of him for it...what does that mean, anyway? HAha. Oh gods. Are they gonna....YES!
[p.s. I never read chapter 10. Just to clarify.]
Author's Response: I cherish your approval. Taking the mickey, taking the piss, teasing, making fun of, all the same, just some more "colourful" :D.
Yay one of my many fictional boyfs next chap! :D:D:D:D
Hold on. Rory Farrell's a Muggle? How on Earth did I miss that?!
I LOVED her hexing of Crantz and Stern (not that I haven't wondered why she was such a "late bloomer" when she could've morphed boobs any time) and her--Lizet's--interview. Plus, Snape's sexy voice. Ahahha!
Dudes. Ohmigosh. I'm a flower child. This is so disturbing! But kinda nice, too. SHh!
Yay my boyf is next chapter!!
I think when you can alter your appearance at will, you become very determined that people like--and love--you just the way you are. Breast size included. :D
What's wrong with being a flower child? You can have the peace and love without the drugs, heh.
Loved the translation at the beginning! :)
Turns out I don't like Sir Evan this time around. I hate the filthy little glob of...rawr. He's just a huge glob of RAWR.
1) I can't remember if whathisface--Jerrykins--and Rita hit it off, but god I hope they do!
2) Why don't I trust Sturgis?
They do...and they don't. :D
Interesting that you don't trust Sturgis! Is it because he isn't very smart and has a bad memory?
I think she's a bit deprived, too :) But that's just me. I secretly envy her, too--I wish I could "embrace simplicity" like she does. Step 2) Finding a husband willing to cuddle in front of a roaring fire instead of a roaring race car track.
Step 3) Convince myself, well, ditto. And then get some books that are, quote-unquote, "classics."
Oh my GOD I was hysterical--and out loud--at Bill and his date! Especially with Monsieur Weasley right behind him...I remember from previous [comments] that this isn't Fleur, so maybe Bill just has the hots for the Frenchies. I hear they French kiss well over there...ahaha...oh, how I amuse myself...
Okay, I don't know if this is my subconscious being a prat, but I knew it was an Animagus. Gods, for a moment I was like, "WTF, Malfoy?" haha. Well I excitedly await chapter 8--oh wait, I don't have to! ;D
People who amuse themselves are never bored--or boring! :D
Do men cuddle at race car tracks? I imagine them leaning forward slightly like at a baseball game, eyes glued to the action, drink and/or snack in hand. Maybe if it's cold, and their partner brought a blanket . . . . ;)
Touche on the good being a relative term ^-^ I like the way you think, doll.
Bahaha I LOVED dinner. And how Anne is being all accusing, the pattern through dinner, and the way that Tonks was "Treated" to boring stories. Glad I wasn't ;D
I. LOVE. REMUS.
Thank GOD there's no cliffie! I was throwing myself off those cliffs, my god. Teehee.
Beddy-bye, now :( And my mum's in the room, so I can't take away my computer without her getting suspicious since this is where I usually leave in. Sad-facee. Goodnight!
Author's Response: Remus is love and you must be on par with Hawaaian cliff divers by now. May your dreams be sweet and free of rocks. :D
Gods I don't get Divination!
Oh my GOD I love old Dumby being a "sex symbol for seniors." That was hysterical! And I adore how they go running inside of making out because they've got be all restrained and stuff >.< I was wondering about Harriet the Spy...the reference you made? You know Harper Finkle from Wizards of Waverly Place, and how she's in that movie Harriet the Spy: Blog Wars? My mommy was wondering about it because she thought Harriet the Spy was, like, someone. Who is she??
I liked him asking about Tonks coming to dinner. Just in general, it was a good conversation! It made me laugh. And ooh yes, just the coincidental Maintenance! Drat cooling spells and their coinciding with precognition! :) And YES I'm SO excited for dinner with Mrs. C =D
Alas, I fear that tonight I'll have to go to bed at the time intended :( Two nights ago, it was midnight before I got scared of getting caught; last night, one in the morning before my computer overheated. So what will tonight bring? Will I actually be a good girl?
...well, probably not.
Harriet the Spy is a novel by Louise Fitzhugh. Years ago it was made into a film starring the girl that played Buffy the Vampire Slayer's little sister. In the Potterverse, there's a witch in the Auror office named Harriet that likes to tattle to the supervisor so Tonks calls her Harriet the Spy.
Goodness is relative. Reading is good. Sleep is good. Whichever one you choose, how can you go wrong? ;)
