poor claude, they were just too young. and maybe now that claude knows where persephone is, he can help her reunite with her old friends!
Good chapter. Poor Persephone. She's missing the nonexistent ring on her finger, in my opinion. :D. Maybe a future for Claude and Lorelai? Is Claude a 2nd Rickert in the making?
Oh dear... Persephone seems to really want to get married now and Rickert doesn't at all. She's really in the same boat as Claude, she did just about everything but elope at the same age. I think she probably would've been better off hanging back to see exactly what she wanted in life (and finishing school). I do hope she and Rickert can come to a decision that they both like.
well even the best of couples get stuck in the routine sometimes... but i hope they get engaged soon and then she'll make up with her family and friends!
Author's Response: hehe thanks...the next chapter is coming shortly =]
THere are a number of story where Dumbledore's twinkling blue eyes give 'permission' for illicit relationships. I'm glad that you did not take this route.
Author's Response: Thanks--I thought that would make things a bit too easy =] Thanks again for your reviews!
If it was the mother's intention to send her child to Paris, she has succeeded.
I'm surprised it didn't occur to her to send an owl to Rickert. Do the Marcellos have an owl?
Author's Response: I think that, since she's preoccupied and a bit frazzled what with all that's going on, it doesn't really occur to her . She probably would have eventually, but Rickert's appearance makes it unnecessary.
Times like these Rickert seems more immature than Persephone. I give him credit for encouraging her to be more assertive and comfortable about her feelings, but he does have growing up to do.
Author's Response: Yeah, even though Rickert's older than Persephone, I think it's clear that he can be, erm, much more immature than her at times =P
Good reaction on the part of Persephone. I don't mean the fact that she said no (which she should have) but that she felt guilty about it and confused. a normal reaction.
Author's Response: Thanks--I loved writing this chapter and trying to make her reaction realistic.
The story is interesting and you have side characters making mature choices. I think however that Rickert and Persephone are rushing it. They really don't know each other that well. All they have is physical attraction. Somehow I get the feeling that this is how Rickert got into his 2 previous failed relationships.
Author's Response: Rickert's a very passionate and impulsive character, and since Persephone likes him, she really takes advantage of that in this chapter. I see you've read the later chapters as well, so you'll probably have figured out that she isn't always so appreciative of this character trait =P Thanks for all your reviews!
aww. sweet. I can feel the engagement coming, lol. :D. Hopefully.
Author's Response: haha thanks =]
I'm glad we got to see a little more about Sophy. And I hope Persephone figures out what she wants. Oh and i hope Charles gets a better job! lol good work though.
Author's Response: haha thanks so much!
Wow... a great lst two chapters, so far. I'm kind of glad Sophy knows--- I've liked her the best of Persephone's friends so far. Maybe Persephone and Rickert will get married now? (After he gets rid of his prejudice against marriage, of course.) Or if not... maybe they'll end up breaking up and getting back together... and then getting married. lol, I'm sorry, but I just can't see what else they can do without getting married-- it seems kind of inevitable in the long run. Either they marry, or they break up. But lovely chapters-- you're writing an amazing story!
Author's Response: thanks so much! I'm glad you like it =]
Hey... i am fan of ur story... i love it!!! I been waiting for u to update it everytime... Im glad that u update quite often... but may i ak u... how many chapters are there more to go till this short novel ends?
Author's Response: Thanks so much! I'm not sure exactly how many more chapters there will be--I'm not quite finished--but I'm expecting about fifteen more. Thanks for sticking with it =]
Very nice chapter. I love your writing style. One question though, although Persephone calls Rickert, "Charles", to his face, why does she still refer to him as "Rickert" in her thoughts, although she's been with him, as she says, for eight months? Wouldn't she be more comfortable with his name by now? But lovely chapter. Can't wait for more!
Author's Response: Thanks so much! Since it's in third person, the transition from Rickert to Charles felt really forced when I tried to incorporate it...I couldn't find a natural place to make the switch. So, it's just stayed as Rickert during the narration and changed to Charles during the dialogue.
i always did hate job interviews... i also hope that charles finds another job soon
Oh, wow! I am so glad that Persephone's finally getting a job-- poor girl, I knew she was going to regret dropping out. Do people all around the world know about Rickert and his affair with a student? They're in France!! How could they know?!? But great chapter, I can't wait for the next update.
Author's Response: Thanks so much! =]
I'm glad that we got a little glimpse into Rickert's past-- it's that much easier to sympathize with his character. Isn't there a wizarding G.E.D. for Persephone? :D
Author's Response: Thanks so much! Hmm...a wizarding GED. I actually didn't even think of that (though admittedly it's a bit too late to change my plans for the next chapters...) Thank you for reviewing! =]
finally we see the man underneath... i love it!
Author's Response: Thanks!
i'm completely in love with RENT but i didnt catch the reference... i thought maybe the cafe, but it was think it was called the life cafe in RENT... anyway, still enjoying the story!
Author's Response: Thanks! Yeah, it's the Life Cafe in RENT. The reference is from the stage show (I don't think it was in the movie...), during Goodbye Love, if that helps you out at all =] Thank you for reviewing!
