Chapter 6 As Long as You Love Me
Author's Response: I'm glad you like it. The challange ended a long time ago, but I just couldn't leave the story unfinished. Besides, it as good for me. I used the four elements to write about how I precieve the four American schools of magic to be. It was a great study exercise.
Chapter 4 So Why Are You Running Away?
I'm back! Oh wow, what a climax. Kalama certainly has her dark side, doesn't she? Can't wait to read the next chapter!
Author's Response: Well, fire is a very passionate element. So we're going to go through a whole gamet of emotions in this story.
Prologue Geckos on a Hot Ceramic Roof
Ah, excellet start to the story - I love it already. I'm just a little confused though, is Kalama's mother a muggle? (I am supposing she is reading the Daily Prophet) It's interesting that you have her keeping up with the magical world and all that. Anyway, nice start, and I will definitely be back to read the rest ( I don't have time tonight... :P)
Author's Response: I'm glad you like the story. I know Kalama's family can seem a little confusing in the Prologue, so I'll explain. Kalama's mother is a Muggle, yes; but her father and her mother's first husband (not the man yelling at her to get off the roof) was a wizard, making Kalama a halfblood witch. After her father, Joseph, died, Kalama's mother still wanted to remain in touch with the wizard in world for the sake of her daughter, and that is why she reads the magical newspaper. Kalama's little sister, Ewa, though, the yelling man is her father and she is all Muggle. I hope that cleared things up.
