I'm so glad you're updating again. And just for the record this chapter flowed very well. I love how Nelle and Remus are close, perhaps they could get a pair of mirrors like Sirius and James so they can talk to each other all the time. Addie sounds like a right brat if you ask me, I don't agree with two-timers to start with, but to say something like that was unforgivable. Perhaps you could fit the incident of Snape and the whomping willow in, but this time not have James save him? Sorry, that would really harm Remus as much as anyone and I wouldn't want that. Can't wait for another update, this fic is brilliant!
Author's Response: I have just one more chapter of Alone left and it is already laid out, nearly finished. Luckily, There are sequels and such, so no worries :) Who knows, you may have guess some of the plans I already have ;) Thanks for the review
Gabby! *SQUISH* Great chapter, love. Nice to see an update from you every once in a while. ;)
Author's Response: I'm glad you liked it. So sorry for the really long wait. I was hoping my Beta would come out of hiding, and she never did. The next one should be in before too long. I promise. It's the last chapter of Alone, you know :)
very well written!! can't wait for the next chapter!
Author's Response: Glad you liked it :)
this is good.
Author's Response: Thanks :)
Loved the chapter read it a long time ago but forgot to review. I don't want to be annoying but when are you going to update
Author's Response: I can't update until my Beta gets back to me :( I haven't heard from her in forever. I would get a different Beta, but there is no one out there who could possibly Beta Alone for me. I'm sorry for thewait. And thanks so much for the review.
your story is genius, please please please update
Author's Response: Thank you so much :D
How sweet! This is going into my faves!
Author's Response: Thanks!
I think Addie is definitely mental for wanting Snape instead of Sirius, sure Sirius spends alot of time with his friends, but he has a good nature, a warm heart and he makes people laugh, Snape's just creepy! in this fic at least. And who's to say that Remus didn't create Sectum Sempra, Nell used it on Snape and he made a note of it for future use?
Author's Response: I think Addie is mental as well. I don't like her at all. Her stupidness is fun to write though, no matter how much I ended up disliking her. And I am so glad you see where I am coming from with the Sectumsempra thing. This chapter was rejected the first time I submitted it because the mod didn't agree with that plot twist.
Why didn't she tell Remus she'd seen that boy, I've seen stuff in films, on TV and even in books where people confront their attackers, and I've got no idea where they find the strength to do it, perhaps it's a lack of strength to run any more. All I know is, I'd rather be standing in the hospital wing with Remus arms around me, hope Nell finds her strength soon, it's awful watching her hurt. I'm only hoping she doesn't need Remus on a full moon, or he won't be able to be there and she might resent him for it. Bring in some cheery stuff, have the marauders pull a Lily-appproved prank.
Author's Response: Ever had a moment where you like a guy so much that the moment you see them, your mind goes blank?
Sirius is so funny, I laughed out loud when he said he and James were taking two other girls to Hogsmead. I think Addie should stick to one person, she's going out with Sirius and yet keeps going on about Snape, no contest in my opinion. I know they're young and it's not like they're married, but why can't people be with one person at a time? And Sirius is going to go Nutters when he knows she talks to Snape. Sometimes I don't think Snape is as black as he's painted, but for this fic i'm afraid i hate him wholeheartedly. I'm hoping Nell changes her mind and goes to Hogsmead with Remus, it's not like they'll be alone, they'll be in a group with the others and if she stays behind she's sure to run into Snape again.
Author's Response: Sirius is my all time favourite character. He's nice and charming and funny and good looking and just all around great. That makes him fun to write. Addie should stick with one person, I totally agree, and it should be Sirus, not creepy old Severus. I'm not sure where the whole idea for the Snape/Addie thing started, but I guess it kinda snowballed. They're my least favourite characters, and yet somehow they seem to be working out better than the good guys.
Poor Remus, seems ironic that such a beautiful soul had to be marred bhy lycanthropy doesn't it? It's funny but I always wonder whether people would be the same if they'd not experienced certain things. Would Harry have been arrogant and cockie if his parents had lived, would Remus have been outgoing if he'd never been bitten, would Peter have betrayed his friends if they'd not teased him as much? Guess we'll never know. I keep hearing that bad experiences make us stronger and better people, but that doesn't seem to be true for Nell, she can't even have her friend hold her hand without being frightened so what chance does she have? I think Madam Pomfrey could've been a little more understanding, although she was always pretty stubborn and considered HER hospital wing as well run and orderly. I thought maybe Remus and Nell would become friends, they seem to have paranoia in common at least and a violent secret each.
Author's Response: No one will ever know how people would turn out had they not had certain experiences. One of the great mysteries of life. I do believe that people are moulded by their experiences no matter how great or small. Thanks for the insightful review.
I'm guessing that the boy was Snape and perhaps he accio'd her wand while she wasn't paying attention. Wonder if she'll turn up at Hogwarts to teach in a few years, when Harry's there, and find Snape's the potions master. I know, not very inventive am I, but that's your job.
Author's Response: Oh gosh, that'd be like battle of the staff members!
Wonderful writing! Beautiful. Not meaning to bother, but update whenever is convenient and possible! A work of art!
Author's Response: Thanks for reading, and I will update as soon as the next chapter gets back from my beta.
Sorry, found a slight error that might confuse some people. Sorry, trying to help, not bash!
"Nell and Addie were sitting in the common room, still bashing Slughorn while pretending to do homework." to "The door to the Great Hall opened and, as usual, all heads turned to the entrance just out of curiosity as to who it was."
Author's Response: Thanks for letting me know! I think I actually spotted that at one point and forgot to fix it.
La, Gabby! This is such a beautiful story! It started off a bit slowly at first; but by the end of the third chapter it had picked up pace. Very nicely done, dear. And a very enjoyable read too. Do update soon :) *hugs*
Author's Response: Thanks for reading it !
Where is the end?!?! Is this it!?!? I want more!!! This story is sooooo good!! Finish it finish it finish it!!!
Author's Response: There are two chapters after this one, and I am working on it. I am not sure where my Beta went though...
Oh, wow, I read this a long time ago and forgot to review. Sorry bout that. Anyway, I liked as ussual. The sectumsempra thing was certainly unexpected, but I'm wondering what happens about that next. I like how sweet they are together. Nice, and don't forget to update!
By the way, that banner for this story is nice...
Author's Response: Thanks for the review and I am glad you liked it. This chapter took forever to finish. The next chapter is with my Beta right now, so it shouldn't be too long before I update. I'm glad you find my little twist interesting... it actially got rejected the first time around because the mod didn't like it. Thanks for reading! And my wonderful banner is by Pixichick118
