AMAZING! Simply amazing! Honestly, the chapter was a beauty (well, I don't know whether this is the accurate word to use here, but still...) Okay, enough...So, I think I have a pretty good idea on the direction the story is heading in...I mean Lyra obviously isn't going to give up on searching for possible clues, and I can totally see her search extend to...the library perhaps? I'm not sure whether that was what crossed her mind in the chapter, but I seem to like the idea...After all, the forbidden section is a great place, isn't it? Anyway, thanks for a quick update and an even better chapter!
Thanks! I'm glad you liked it so much! You'll find out in the next chapter where she goes. Hopefully that update will be quick. You're welcome that this one was fast :) It's actually been easier to find time to submit than I thought it would.
really good chapter please keep it up^^
Author's Response: Thank you! I'll continue to post chapters.
Great chapter; really nicely written! To be honest, I've never been the world's biggest fan of Mrs. Norris... There's just something about her that creeps me out... Anyway, maybe I'm missing something (again, I seem to be doing that a lot lately...), but where is Lyra going to look for information? The only places I can think of are relatives houses- which would be totally dangerous... Though, I can actually see it happening... Keep writing! Submit the next chapter when you get the chance! Until next time; Cheers!
Haha, I'm a total cat person but I don't really like Mrs. Norris either. I used to have a stuffed toy of her, but I don't think I do anymore. I can't believe I got rid of HP merchandise, even if it was Mrs. Norris... :(
You're not missing anything. There's supposed to be a lot of mystery. But ugh...your predictions always want me to speak, but I have to bite my tongue! You'll find out where she goes in the next chapter. You'll be surprised because...well, uh...never mind :P
I agree the Trio is always out and about at night as well so it makes perfect sense!
Thanks! That's good. Sometimes I have to justify things a little to make the story work.
I liked this chapter. Ron was excellent, you portrayed him well. ;) Can't wait for the next review!
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm expecting the next chapter fairly soon. :)
I really like the relationship between these two outcast, and I also like how you have developed these characters!
Author's Response: Thank you! There is more to come between the two.
i really enjoyed this chapter your doing an amazing job XD
Author's Response: Thank you!
Definite win! Best line of the chapter?
"He's a Slytherin! Gryffindors can't date Slytherins! That's just common sense! How are we going to win against Slytherin today if you're going easy on them?"
Only the best line because, I think, it was absolute canon. Ron has a tendency to be a bit... thick headed? And I think you captured it wonderfully!
I was REALLY surprised by the fast update on this story, I was expecting it to be much slower. So, you just made my day =] Well, you and the random little kid I saw at the mall today... He was singing Hedwig's Theme... loudly. My sister and I joined in. Anyway...
The Quidditch was really good, and the Lyra/Theo stuff was good, too! Everthing was really in character!
Keep ot up! Submit the net chapter when you get the chance! Until next time; Cheers!
Author's Response: Wow, thanks! I'm so glad you thought Ron was very canon! I was expecting it to be a slower update as well, but I submitted since it was the weekend and the mod was validating, I guess. Lol to the little kid at the mall. That would make my day, too. Instead of hearing little kids singing Hedwig's Theme, I hear my guy friends saying, 'Let's watch Harry Potter! Oh, yeah, Emma Watson!' It's kind of hard to join in with that :P Haha. So, yeah, I'm also happy that you like the Quidditch. Originally I thought it would become a bigger part of the story. It didn't really, so I'm afraid it's a bit pointless, but I sure had fun with this chapter and it seems it's not as pointless as I thought it was :) Thanks, as always...you're always quick to review :)
GAH!!!!! Im shaking with anticipation please update soon...
Author's Response: I submitted the next chapter last night :)
OMG! I love the ending. It was awesome. Anyway. One tiny problemo... the castle's main door was always locked after hours. I might be wrong but I"m pretty sure. I think I should look it up and than tell you. Anyway. I really did like the chapter though. It was well thought out and I was suprised when I came on today that you had updated. Anyway. I hope school's going well. (Like always.) And continue with the up dates. It doesn't matter to me if they come slow. I'm just happy your updating at all. ;) LOL
Author's Response: Hm...I didn't think of that. You're probably right about the doors. But if Filch looks them (I don't know if he does), they could probably open it with Alohomora. Maybe students can get out (even if they're not supposed to) but others can't get in. Um...I don't know, I'm making excuses. Thanks for reviewing, though! The updates may be slower but I will continue to post chapters :)
this chapter was actually really good although i cant help but get the feeling that they know a little too much... although that could just be me XD anyway really good chappter. and keep updating i love your story.
Author's Response: Thanks! Do you mean they know too much about Voldemort's ideas? I'll admit sometimes I don't really think when I write and it might be a bit stretched. Hopefully not too much. I'll update soon (I hope). Thanks for reviewing :)
Oh. My. Gosh! Squeel! This chapter, honestly, just made me feel like smiling the entire time! I love this couple! Haha... I feel like an overly excited fangirl... I'm not even sure what that implies, since this isn't a canon story, lol.
I loved Lyra's stuttering and confusion as she tried to figure out what to say. I'm also really looking forward to what the heck this dream means, because I find it so intriging (sp, sorry!)! Honestly, it probably wouldn't bother me so much, but I know that it means something so it's nagging me...
Something that I found ironic (because, face it, you've got to love irony!) is that before reading this chapter I was thinking, "Wow, this whole thing started because Lyra's wrist was burning." And then, half way through the chapter, she started talking about her burning wrist... I felt psychic, and very Alice Cullen... Okay, wow, I need to shut up now... Long review over!
Keep up the awesome work; and I hope everything's going well! Submit the next chapter when you get the chance! Until next time; Cheers!
Author's Response: Haha, thanks! You'll find out what the dream means in part four (I know it's a long time) but the snakes will make a return. Until then, maybe you could try to work out what it means :) It's interesting that you thought of the wrist thing because when I started this I thought the wrist would play a larger part in the story but after part one it kind of died. I had to mention it again! Thanks for the review--sorry it took a while to respond.
:) I don't know why I missed the update on the previous chapter, but I thought I would read both of them and review here...I know you said that Malfoy wasn't really into bullying in his 6th year, but I think what you put fit with how he could have been...especially to someone that a fellow Slytherin might be interested in...(A Gryffindor of all things, oh the shame ::kidding::)
This chapter is the one I have been waiting for..the one where Lyra finally comes to terms with the fact that she has feelings for Theodore...and the first kiss ::sighs happily::
Author's Response: Haha, thanks! Draco definitely sensed something might be up...not necessarily romance, but even a friendship between the two would have been bad in his opinion. Anyway, there's definitely more to come. Thanks for continuing to read and review!
Ha! I knew Nott would kiss her!! Great chapter, as I've said before, I love the story. It's very well written, and the plot is extraordinarily addictive! But I do have a sort of kind of problem with the whole wrist thing. Aren't the marks supposed to be down their arms? But other than that, it's a great story. Keep writing, no matter what anyone tells you!
Author's Response: Thank you! I always thought the mark was on the wrist, but I could be wrong. Either way, she feels the pain when it's touched. I'll stick with wrist since I've already mentioned it several times. I guess one could argue it's kind of the same thing as being down their arm...kind of...anyway, thanks for reading and reviewing :)
A new chapter is up! Sorry I haven't reviewed in a while, but that's an excellent chance to do it! Plus I get to leave the first review. Anyway, the chapter was great and the conversation between Lyra and Nott was so inspiring. I liked how Lyra decided to open up to him and give him a chance to prove himself to her. Oh, and the kiss scene was really sweet and cute...I wonder though what could have possibly been Nott's opinion on that dream matter; he really did have an explanation, didn't he?
So, great chapie once again, and keep up the good work. I'd love to know what happens next!
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm happy you liked all the scenes. As far as the dream goes, Nott doesn't really have an opinion but he's trying to work something out in his head. I know that scene was a little confusing and kind of unnecessary; it was just meant to show how much she had opened up to him, really. However, you'll find out what the dream means eventually! Thanks for the review!
Hey! Reviewing again! I really like this chapter. You never here about Theodore Nott in Rowling's books so its fun to read about him. He;s awesome. NOw concerning the End notes Draco is a jerk either way so don't worry about that. We all know in the sixth book Draco gets all "dangerous" and stuff but i thought it was good. Crabbe and Goyle would have to stupid to do it so you couldn't make them do it. Anyway. I'm really happy that you updated. Your most likely busy with school so the updates are probably come much slower. But i really did like this chapter. I think her parents would be proud that she choose a pure blood and not half-Blood or Muggle born. So hope your having a great year. Don't get arrested for bringing chocolate to school. LOL.
One of the reasons I chose Nott for Lyra is because you don't hear about him in the books. And I wanted the Gryffindor-Slytherin thing to happen, too. Draco's her cousin, so that wouldn't work, and Crabbe and Goyle...just...no. :P Anyway, it seems everyone thinks Draco's attitude is okay in this chapter :) And I am busy with school but I'll still manage to update. And (I feel like I'm changing the subject so randomly here, haha) her parents will be happy about Nott being a pureblood--there's actually a small part in a later chapter. Thanks for reviewing like always! I managed to update the next chapter the other day, so it shouldn't be long.
not bad with the whole draco thing... i mean he most likely would act that way if he were preoccupied by something like in the 6th book like you said... also as a side note this is one of my favorite fan fics EVER XD so please dont stop!!!!!
Thanks! The story is actually completely written already, so I just have to revise and submit. The next chapter is already in the queue, so stay tuned and it'll be out quickly, I hope. I'm glad you like this fic!
yay!!!!!!! it was cute. cliche, but cute. their were enough real elements to make it believable, or muggle elements i guess. hogwarts is reality, not muggley. :D good job
Author's Response: Wow! I was just responding to a review when this one came up! Talk about good timing :) Anyway, I'm glad it was cute. It wasn't too mushy, was it? I think some cliches are good. Not too many. But a balance of cliches with original ideas is good in my opinion. I hope I've achieved that here. Thanks! Stay tuned for more of this coming in the next chapter :)
I really like this relationship that is budding with Lyra and Nott. Also Draco was still somewhat himself at this point so I think it is fine that Draco tormented her.
Author's Response: Thanks! And I'm happy you think the Draco part was okay. Thanks for the review. I hope you keep reading! :)
Great chapter! I'm absolutely fine with Draco acting as he did, I don't think it matters what he did, he'll always be a bit of a git! Not sure if that statement made sense...
I really like Nott! I think he sounds like an awesome character! Very straight to the point, but also very real! I'm also looking forward to seeing how the characters are going to react to the Nott/Lyra pairing!
Best line of the chapter, "He raised his eyebrow again, and I was forced to admit to myself that it was true for the first time: I was totally falling for him."
I thought it was awesome, not only the way Lyra realized it, but the way it was worded!
I'm always a fan of Tonks, so I can't complain about seeing her! Just curious, why was she so happy?
Overall an awesome chapter! Keep writing and submit the next chapter when you get the chance! Until next time; Cheers!
Yeah, he will always be a bit of a git, I think. I mean, he has to pull some kind of jerkish move every so often. Haha, I'm glad you like the line. It was one of my favorites to write. And it has to be worded just right since this is kind of a weird thing for this story...if that makes any sense. About Tonks: I don't remember her being happy, really...she's depressed about Remus still. If she appeared happy, it's because she got to see Lyra.
I can't wait until I get reviews for the next chapter :) I'll try to submit it this week. We'll see :P Thanks, as always!
