yayy these chapters are getting so excited, george and alicia are so sweet!
lovely job m'dear, cheers
Author's Response: They're engaged, it's Christmas, they deserve a little happy couple time before reality intrudes. Thank you for enjoying it!
i love this story ps the time u post is odd what time zone r u in?
Author's Response: Thank you! The mods upload whenever they have the time so fics can post at all hours. I'm just glad they update! :)
Amazing...I'm scared now..There's no cliffhanger! What has happened to the world? Great Christmas spirit, a month after Christmas lol.
Author's Response: Christmas is in our hearts all year round, LOL. It's looking like there won't be a cliffie next chapter either...maybe I'm sick. :D
Totally acts like it. Too bad he isn't real.
Author's Response: Along with all the other great HP guys! Of course, if they were real, think of the cat-fights female fans would get in over them! LOL
this chapter gave me a warm fuzzy feeling! I loved it. I didn't get the e-mail alerts so I had to search for my favorite story to se if it was updated. This story is like the highlight of my week, its something to look forward to besides school! So I will be anxiously awaiting the next chapter!
Author's Response: What? No email alert? *looks around for brown paper bag to breathe into*
Now that my panic attack's over, heh, thank you for looking for the story! I'm anxiously awaiting word that the hacker problems are fixed! :)
I know I already reviewed this, but I had a follow-up about the red chest-hair...
"George, I was wondering--why is your chest hair brown when your head hair red?" Alicia asked randomly, fingering said hair.
"Well, Love, I guess now you know why I won't grow facial hair..."
It's obviously never going to happen, but it was much more fun than thinking up some other randomness. ;)
Author's Response: That was very good randomness! I think George has a little body hair, but it's all fine, silky, and red LOL. I have seen redhaired guys with dark beards...weird...:D
I liked Detective George, he was funny and sweet. And extremely considerate and protective and very dreamy. Lucky Alicia!
Author's Response: Thank you! I don't blame her for wanting to marry him even though he hasn't said 'I love you.' His actions tell her if he hasn't fallen already, he's almost there! :D
George is the sweetest! He went and spoke to Anne!!!
Author's Response: He might not think in terms of the 'L' word, but he acts like it, doesn't he? ^_~
yay no cliffie! and george didn't screww up once! lol! I love the idea of dirty snowmen!
Author's Response: Thank you! There might not be a cliffie next chapter either. I'm lulling you into a false sense of complacency....muahahaha...ha... :D
I love spoons! i knew what George was doing but i had no clue Alicia worried about cartomancy! They are such a cute couple. George reminds me of a friend who treats his girlfriend like royalty, especially with convincing parents, so sweet. Anywho, I am ramling. Loved this chappie, great job!
Author's Response: Do you bluff others or watch for a spoon to be grabbed more than your cards? :) I think most women have a tendency to analyze...sometimes over-analyze, =D. Who hasn't thought 'what does he really mean by that?'
Oh, what can I say that I haven't before ~ Another well written chapter. Can't wait for the next one.
I like how George "handled" Anne - very diplomatic.
Author's Response: You said you like George's diplomacy! :D Of course now my inner George is frowning, thinking you're implying he sometimes isn't, heehee.
i never understood that game before but its still a great chapter!! i cant wait for them to get married and have the baby!!
Author's Response: Did I describe enough to give you an idea? I didn't want to dump a load of details and put anyone to sleep, heh, so if you got the picture of them passing cards, trying to get four of a kind while checking to make sure no one had grabbed a spoon, I'm happy!
Little bit of a wait for the wedding...planning takes time, as you'll see next chapter! ^_~
Ooh, I love Spoons! But I usually play Pig, instead. Sometimes we can't all find spoons. ;)
And you get a hug for the anatomically correct snowman! It's still as my desktop background because I'm too lazy to change it. And when my family saw it because they were being nosy and decided to steal my laptop in Florida, they liked it too. ^_^
My birthday is in a week from tomorrow! The sad thing is that I'm not even really excited. It is, however, a plus that my grade is taking a trip to a food pantry that day, but still. I'm not turning a great age or anything.
Oh, and I've never thought of any of the HP men with chest hair. I think it's a bit awkward thinking about Harry having it, because I kind of grew up with him, and him having facial hair in DH was a shocker. Haha, and also, I've never seen a red-head with red chest hair, just like eyebrows, 'cause sooo many red-heads have dyed their hair.
Author's Response: Yay for you playing Spoons and keeping the snowman on your desktop! I don't think even Mother Teresa would've been excited about visiting a food pantry on her birthday. You need to dress up and go out somewhere--anywhere! ^_^
I think weird things. LOL. Mugglenet showed those photos of Dan in the play Equus and a friend said 'Eeuww...Harry Potter has chest hair!' making me laugh...and go hmm? about George. :D
So the hacker attack is still causing grief? :-( Blistering boils upon them!!!
I agree with some of the others ~ I'm addicted. Great chapter, as usual. I loved how Caper faked everyone out!
Author's Response: Blistering boils on their backsides! Painful and alliterative...I like it! :D
I prefer to think of it as a mutually beneficial exchange of story and feedback, although when I get paranoid no one will see the story and review, I sometimes wonder.... :D
It was a great chapter, I've been following this story for several months now and my roommate and I check both fanfiction.net and mugglenet for it... We've been noticing lately that it shows up on fanfiction loooong before it shows up here, but that weekly chapter really helps us through the week. :)
Author's Response: Aw, thank you! FF is faster because the site's self post, so like fast food you don't have to wait, although readers don't have quality control either, and have to be their own mod weeding through stories to avoid literary "food poisoning" LOL.
hey! am one of those readers who wait for this story update to show up in my inbox. i think its great that u update so regularly and frequently.
Author's Response: Thank you! I feel horrid guilt over not being able to update my R/T fic weekly anymore. I can't add to it by slacking off with this story! :D
Update soon, please!
Author's Response: I couldn't have Anne be the Grinch Who Stole Christmas. After the year everyone's had, a happy Christmas is the least I could give! :)
It's official now... this story is my crack!! Can't live without it!
I loved this chap, I loved the "younger adults", as you have put it!
My favorite lines were:
- "you didn't really think you'd get away with it–did you, hag?"
- " Killer Christmas Tree Pokes Kid’s Eye Out!"
I wish George was real, or that I knew the Phelps twins.. :D
I love it, that you update so quick…
Author's Response: Thank you so much for liking the lines that made me grin to write! I can't hook you up with the Phelps twins, but I will try to update quickly! ^_~
I'm so glad they didn't bicker about Oliver. And it was so cute how she summoned the mistletoe to kiss him! Can't wait til next time!
Author's Response: George isn't jealous because he doesn't know Oliver and Alicia had a relationship. Will that change? :D
Say it with me: Awwwwwwww!!! Adorable, sweet chapter!! I'm so happy they are finally engaged!!! Yay!!! As for Alicia's mum, well she can just take a flying leap off the nearest cliff. These two belong together!!! Update soon!!!
Author's Response: About time George asked...and asked in the right way! :) Anne can't help being a mother hen, but she has to learn to trust her chick's judgment. :D
