No. I understand. Glad to be of some service.
Author's Response: You're glad, I'm glad, it's gladness all round!
Your stuff is just excellent, so readable and vivid and enjoyable. Loved it .......again!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for 'saying' that! I'd love to see that on the back of a novel. :D
they are so sweet! and he sounds so hot!!!
Author's Response: Thank you. He is hot, and lucky Angelina, looks are just part of it! ;)
Awww. Now I'm sad.
You being sad makes me happy. That's not a bad thing, is it? :D
Great story. But shouldn't it be labeled as Alternative Universe, since according to JK and every other source, that George Weasley married Angelina? Just curious.
It's not AU according to literary canon. I started writing For Bitter or for Worse, the George/Alicia story that inspired this one, well before Jo came out with her "Family Tree." If I'd had Fred live, that would be AU. This one, I might ask Mods to consider adding a new warning for:
Post Epilogue Revelations Disregarded
Brilliant. I was pleasantly surprised to see the update! I am anxiously awaiting more!
Author's Response: The third chapter is the final one. It's a "How Blaise and Angelina Got Together" story, since I couldn't see it happening in the usual boy-meets-girl way. :D I have to leave the time between that first hand-holding walk on the beach and Blaise walking out of the bedroom to reader imagination. ^_~
Oh, a fans cruel life.. it's a hard decision to choose where to read a story, because while i LOVE mugglenet, ffnet has helped me trough a time, where my favorite site has had a bit of problems, so I owe that site a lot.. I don't know where to follow your stories. So now I give you 2 reviews! :D
As I sad, it's a perfect ending to a perfect story, and while I'm happy that Blaise and Angie are together, my other eye cries because this means the end of this story. But hopefully we will hear about them in FBoFW and you will actually write that ficlet about Mrs. Zabini and Kingsley, because you made me very curious (she actually LOVED a man --> this is worth a fic too ;) !
So end note:
- would be happy to read more about Blaise and Angie,
- would be more than happy to read about Mrs: Zabini and Mr. Zabini,
- would be more than happy to read about Mrs: Zabini and Kingsley
- this doesnt belong here, but I would be delighted if I would read more about Phineas... ;)
-AND FBoFW could go on forever, because i like it that much!!
- and I'm open for everything else you write too! ;)
So, yeah, I have small wishes, don't I ? ;)
I love your wishes! They're big and beautiful! :)
I just wish I had the time to write all those stories! If only Time-Turners were real...sigh...
I love it! I'm so glad for the update and that the site is back. Please update again soon!
Author's Response: I'm almost finished with the last chapter, so I'll keep my fingers crossed that all the backlogged fics will get modded soon!
I absolutely love reading your stuff, it's completely and utterly marvellous!
New chapter soon, maybe?
Author's Response: I'm only 300 words into the final chapter. Juggling George and Alicia with Remus and Tonks, it isn't as easy as I'd hoped to squeeze in a short fic! I will get there, I promise, since I take pride in Complete stories and hate to be left hanging...although, with MNFF problems, it hasn't been my fault, LOL.
That song by the Spice Girls is stuck in my head. This girl I sit near sings it WAY to often. Did you like Sweeney Todd? My friend said it was good but I've never seen it.
Author's Response: It was their one big hit, lol. I really enjoyed the film version. If the singing isn't quite as good as the stage version, the cinematography and characterization by the actors more than makes up for it! (although I enjoyed the singing too!)
I love this story! Great job! Can't wait to see where you go with it! I want them to get down and dirty soon! Boy, some of the plot was so thick with suggestion, my computer screen fogged up!
Keep up the good work on "For bitter or for worse". I'm eagerly anticipating the next part of it!
Author's Response: Thank you! I'll update 'For Bitter or for Worse' as soon as the site is upgraded and the queue reopens. This one might have to wait a few weeks, but I've never left a story incomplete, so you know I'll finish it!
ive been waiting for another chap of this soooooooooooo good
Author's Response: Thank you! I could've cast some painful hexes if I could identify the hackers who've made posting hard...and had magical powers, LOL
Firstly, I AM SO JEALOUS OF YOU! I WANT TO SEE SWEENY TODD!
Sadly, I am not yet eighteen so I can’t go and see it, and my parents won’t smuggle me in. However, I do own the soundtrack (I am listening to it know, in fact) and I had “We all deserve to die” in my head as I woke up this morning. Great way to start the day! And then I had, “not while I’m around” during most of the school day. And then a jumble of the rest of the songs… ANYWAY!
Blaise Zabini… PHWOAR! I LOVE the way you described him. It was like if you searched up “sex” in the dictionary there would be a picture of him there. I tell you something; that would definitely sell more dictionaries. You know I love your writing. I love this. I love Blaise. I love… Johnny Depp, but that’s off topic. But the point is, I am feeling the love.
I shall leave yee with a Sweeny Todd quote/lyric because I love Johnny Depp, you, your writing, this fic and musicals.
”LOVETT: It's priest. Have a little priest.
TODD: Is it really good?
LOVETT: Sir, it's too good, at least!
Then again, they don't commit sins of the flesh,
So it's pretty fresh.
TODD: Awful lot of fat.
LOVETT: Only where it sat.
TODD: Haven't you got poet, or something like that?
LOVETT: No, y'see, the trouble with poet is
'Ow do you know it's deceased?
Try the priest!”
Author's Response: Sexy men are definitely ON topic, and you're going to love the scene where Mrs. Lovett is imagining them by the sea. It might be on youtube. Only Johnny could pull off the old fashioned bathing costume and brooding around in a white suit. :D
I read somewhere that looking at pictures of good looking men elevates women's moods (wonder if the "test subjects" were paid or volunteered out of altruism, heh) so I'm all for feeling the love and lifting moods!
hey hey! i loved the chapter! the chemistry between blaise and angelina is perfect, and i am really looking forward to reading more!
Haha...yeah how good is Sweeny Todd?? i watched it for the 3rd time last night. hopefully i will get to see it again soon, my favourite song is the "worst pies in London". But yes, i can imagine the epiphony song making you feel rather...murderous, because it does the same to me!! :)
Anyway, great writing...as usual!
Author's Response: Is that just revolting?
All greasy and gritty?
It looks like it's molting!
And tastes like...we'll pity.
Huzzah for readers with good taste in musicals...and men, heh.
Wow! I very rarely ever read Other Pairings, but this Blaise/Angelina fic caught my eye and I decided to try it. I'm glad I did. It's quite refreshing from all the other romance stories up on Mugglenet. I can't wait to read more.
Author's Response: Thank you for giving the pairing a try! It's rare, but in this dimension of the Potterverse, at least, it works!
Modest soul that I am, I think all my stories are refreshing, ^_~, so if you get the time to read, I have a lot to choose from!
Great Job! I loved the part where Angelina looked at her watch and she wasn't wearing one. I hate when that happens!
I love how you described the food, etc. Very vivid.
I can't wait to read more! Update soon!
Author's Response: Thank you for loving the details and confessing you've checked the time and realized you weren't wearing a watch! It's a very D'oh! moment, :D. It may take awhile, but I will update!
Angelina's conflicting feelings regarding Blaise are highly amusing. She's attracted to him but picks a place that she thinks he can't handle. Sometimes being a woman is so freeing. We are allowed to be contradictory especially in matters of the heart.
I think "Tell me what you need" is a much better line. Need implies a desire to care for the whole person not just the superficial. It also has the added benefit of sounding more sensual in my head. ;-)
Author's Response: It's definitely a perk of being female. :D
I agree, she knows he wants her as a person, not just a fit body, heh.
Interesting. I'd like to see how this will turn out.
Author's Response: Thank you again! ^_^
Nice idea. Blaise using swahili is something very uncommon. I like it.
Author's Response: Thank you! I know that before HBP fan writers had Blaise (boy or girl, heh) being Italian or Spanish in looks, but his description in the books made me think exotically gorgeous and African. :)
I didn't post a review for the first chap, so this one is for both!
You know how I LOVE your work, I sad it in For bitter or for Worse, but I could say it billion times..
Don't get me wrong, I LIVE for those minutes when I read George's and Alicia's story, but Chasing Angelina got me, maybe a little more than the previous…
It's different, and I really like it.. It's strange to see, that the slytherins are people, human too, that they are friends and that they care...Jk tried to show us that in DH trough the Malfoy family, but this fic outshines it .. and For bitter or for Worse outshines the Epiloge, where George isn't mentioned, altough he suffered maybe the worst…
Blaise must be VERY sexy ;) I wouldn't mind to see him "disrobe" ;)
I like Angelinas character too, I hope that she will discover, that Zabini went back to the castle for her..
And I like Mrs. Zabini too, for a woman, who killed her husbands, she is very pleasant, reminds me on my aunt, altough, she didn't kill her husband ;)
You wrote so many GOOD lines, but I have my favorites :)
- "We are free.", simple, but shows many things…
- " “I think it’s a hair past a freckle,” said Blaise. Her mouth fell open. “You made a joke.” He unfastened gold cufflinks before shrugging out of his white dress shirt and using a charm to shrink discarded clothing into scraps he placed in a pocket. “Don’t tell the Slytherin Alumni Association.” " made me grin :)
Can't wait for the new chap..
Author's Response: You sure know how to make up for lost time! (or review, lol) Thank you so much for seeing the Slytherin side. I've always had a soft spot for them, wondering how they would be portrayed if seen from a different perspective than Harry's (with due cause) negatively viewpoint.
As for Mrs. Zabini...it's only rumoured she killed her husbands, not proven, although I might have to write a Kingsley/Dalila story to show him learning a few things about her...and himself! ;)
Thanks for the grin, too!
