That quote at the end is from Gone with the Wind. Rhett says it. (I think). I really like your story. Good job!
Ah, fluff fluff fluff fluff. I can't help myself, I just love it. This story is exactly how I imagined them to be. Both are characterized brilliantly throughout the whole story, and I just loved it. It was amazingly written... practically perfect in every way. (Can you name the source of *that* line?)
Oh, and that last line Ted says is from Rhett from Gone With The Wind.
Thank you so much for one of my favourite fanfics ever! :D
Author's Response: I'm so glad you loved it! I actually really love these two so much. I feel like I would have gotten along with them perfectly if I had known them. That line is from Mary Poppins. :) Thank you so much for the review and reading the story and loving it so much!
Hey! I listed this story in my favorites years ago and today out of the blue I get an email from mugglenet -which i haven't been active on in years and years- saying that my favorites have been updated. And I read it, and I remembered it and it made me smile. Still as much a sucker for fluff as I was at 15. :P I thought it would be mean of me to leave without a review-- I know if I were to come back and put up a story after all these years I would be so very delighted to get a review. So here's to more random updates of long forgotten favorites and the good 'ol days--- good job!
Author's Response: Thank you very much then! I'm so glad you enjoyed this and I am glad you took the time to read and review even though you're no longer around anymore. :)
I really loved this chapter. And, I really loved that you continued writing the story, because it is definitly in my top 5 fanfics! :) Andromeda's feelings are complex and perfect and the way she holds it all together like a true slytherin is amazing. I'm hoping her and Ted get together soon, because Raphael is the spitting image of evil. Nice job making him so unliked, btw. ;) Great chapter, I loved it, please continue!
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm kinda in love with the two of them and I'm so glad I've opened people's eyes to them. I'm glad everyone dislikes Raphael as much as I do, though honestly you can't blame him. He's a product of his environment after all. I know this is long in coming but there was a lot going on in the last year. Expect the next chapter up soon hopefully.
I love the story, but the jump to Raphael with Andromeda was confusing. I didn't think he was considering them together?
Author's Response: Raphael is very much the arrogant, pure blooded Slytherin. He's the stereotype of the story. His parents and Andromeda's parents want them together and he agrees. Plus he's the kind of figure who wants what he can't have. In this case, it's Andromeda and therefore, he wants them together. As for Andromeda, she is very very confused about Ted and herself. She has what she's always known with the pure bloods and the Slytherins. I hope this clears up some of your confusion. :) Thanks for reading!
Oh wow! This is so well written! Just recently actually, i became interested in andromeda/ted fics. They just have such an interesting story. not many people think much about them, but well done! Each character is so well thought out, with their emotions, actions,just....wow! I really can't wait for the next chapter, how many chapters are you making for this story?
Author's Response: Lol I never gave them much thought when I was reading the books either. It took another author's one-shot about them that drew my attention. Everyone writes about Teddy or Lupin/Tonks or the 3 or the marauders. It's an ingrained habit to pick something out of the norm, and that's how I chose them. As for the chapters, I have no idea. As many as it takes to reach my planned ending. Thanks for the review!
Ah, Kritchen. I know I have reviewed this story a thousand times (ha, not really, but you know) and I know that you know just how much I love you and your writing. Your Andromeda especially. I simply wanted to take the time to commend you, yet again, on that aspect of your story.
We know so little about Andromeda from canon, and yet, you manage to create such a completely real and believable character. She is just as I would imagine Andromeda; haughty and a Black, but yet, not entirely. There is something else there, perhaps just budding, and we can see it forming throughout this story.
I wanted to comment, too, on Ted. You've done wonderfully with him, too. He's quite likable and funny, and he still holds that certain air we see in the books. With both characters, Andromeda and Ted, we can see their canon selves in the bigger personality that you have created. You've managed to take a rough outline from JKR and mold it into something quite believable in both characters.
As of course, Raphael. You know how I feel about him. lol. What I particularly like about, not necessarily his character, but his role in the story, is what he does for Andromeda. She plays against him, and it is through her reactions and connection with him that he can see the Slytherin in her, and I really like that you've created a character capable of that. Its an excellent tool for your fiction, my dear.
Author's Response: Lol. I'm assuming this review was for a class or some other thing you're doing for improvement, but it was lovely nonetheless. I can't say I put THAT much thought into the characters, but I'm glad you really understand that. The things you've said are exactly what I aimed to achieve, though the thing about Raphael was accidental, I swear. ;) I really wanted her to be a true Black, so I'm glad Raphael helps that view.
I absolutely love this story! You write really well, and every chapter is amazing....do you happen to know when you will update again? :) I just can't wait!
Author's Response: Sorry for such a long wait. Life has been hectic and writing hasn't been a first priority. I'm working on it now. :)
I simply love this story. It gets better and better with every chapter.
Author's Response: thank you!
Ugh, can I slap Raphael really, really hard? You're a really good writer, to make him so evil. Update soon!
Author's Response: Sorry for not updating sooner! I've been insanely busy adn then school started. >.<
You had better update soon. You can't leave us like this!
Author's Response: lol. I'll try.
:D I'm SO happy you updated, this is a great story, and the slow update is sometimes killing me... ;)
And finaly a kiss! We have waited for so long... and it was perfect! I simply LOVE it!
Author's Response: Lol. I'm sorry bout that. I simply lost my hunger for HP fanfiction and had no will to write at all. I tried, but it wasn't the greatest, and I figured that wasn't fair to the rest of you who actually read my stories. But something happened to respark that eagerness and I'm halfway done with chapter 10. Though be warned, updating will still be slow. I've got 5 books to do for summer reading...
I find the description of how Andromeda feels superb. You’ve captured very well how she feels, what gives her fears. And yet, she feels something for Ted and isn’t sure of how to go on from that on. I myself are currently writing a story about the dilemma Andromeda finds herself in, but with another Black woman, so I know how hard it is to get the emotions and everything right. And you’ve done it really good, so congratulations. Great chapter.
Author's Response: Thank you! I love writing about emotions and I'm glad you think I captured it so well! I wish you tons of luck and look forward to seeing your story! It's exciting to see more A&T cropping up because of my stories and infatuation with the couple.
Good chapter. I liked teh "mismatched rainbow" bit.
Author's Response: Thank you. That was a random burst of an idea and Nikki (my Beta) loved it. XD
Just beautifull... and you are a genius!
Author's Response: Lol. I try. :D I rather felt that it was almost cliche.
Aww, that is sweet. But poor Adromeda. She has a terrible family.
Author's Response: Lol. Yes, she really does. But Ted's isn't so great either. :D
A wonderful and really good story so far. And it’s getting cute…
I really liked the part where Andromeda tells that she’s a proud person, but not proud of what stands behind her name and family (chapter six). You’ve captured her dilemma quite good, well done.
Please continue writing in this good style of yours. Using the first person narrator gives us qualified inside on each character, better than a third person narrator would be able to do. I like your story and will surely stay till the end.
Author's Response: Lol thank you so much. :D Everyone seems to be saying that about Chapter six. I'm glad I did that then. I certainly shall continue. There may even be a sequel. ;)
YAY! New chappy! AND things are developing ;) The conversation betwen them was just perfectly written! :D
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I felt weird about the new chapter at first, but I'm so glad you liked it.
you are such a good writer. Thanks so much for updating it so soon. :D
Author's Response: Thank you. :D You're completely welcome. It's a blast to write this story. I just wish I had time to work on chapter nine. :/
I like the thought that Andromeda was proud of her name, the respect it earned, and not the ways the family earned it! I also like Ted making her grin!
Something I noticed (besides a missing direct address comma in Hello, Cissy :D) this chapter was Andromeda making descriptive comments about herself. Ted should be the one telling the reader she's got smooth skin. ;)
Author's Response: Lol. Awwwah, Kerichi, I missed you! Your comments mean so much to me, and thanks, I'll keep that in mind. :D Lol. I should look over my new chapters and check that over. :D Thanks again. :D
