wow! this was an amazing chapter. i really appreciated having demetri's pov. i was curious as to the business nightingale had and i must say that this new development did not disappoint to say the least. the emotions were definitely well written and the ending was a surprise i was not expecting.
Author's Response: Thanks, karamarie! I'm glad you liked the chapter and I must say I had a little fun writing from Demetri's perspective for a change. Expect more twists and turns to come. Thanks again for reading and reviewing! :)
First off let me say...WOW. This was an amazing chapter, and I liked seeing it from Demetri's point of view. I can't believe he signed a Marriage Contract though! And I believe that Genevieve's reaction was right on. Though I did catch that she had to marry a pureblood so could she marry one of her friends that are pureblood and get a divorce? I can't to see Fauna's reaction when she finds out, and what happens with Demetri and Genevieve. Another amazing chapter and I can't wait for more mzap!
Author's Response: Thanks, Alice! I'm so glad you liked this chapter. Unfortunately, Fauna will only ever be able to marry pureblood, so marrying one and then divorcing him wouldn't do anything. This is part of the reason Demetri tried to persuade her into looking at pureblood men, but his hands were a bit tied in what he believed in and trying to repress that. He knew he could never bring himself to arrange a marriage for Fauna so Fauna's only option was falling in love, but she fell for someone else. Thanks again for reading and reviewing! :)
having stated your own excitement for this chapter, i must say that it did not disappoint! that will definitely get your heart racing. but that interaction between nathaniel and the rosiers was well written. i could feel the tension myself. well i'll definitely be on the look out for the next one as i am anxious to find out what business is afoot.
Author's Response: Thanks, karamarie! This chapter has been waiting on my computer for some time just waiting to be read so I'm glad you liked it so much! I'm happy you were able to feel the tension coming across and I promise to update soon! Thanks again for reading and reviewing! :)
Wooooow now I know why you were so concerned about how my "issues" turned out... damn.... I was so scared of something similar happening to us xD
Anyway..... holy shit! Jett!! D: or rather..... Callum?? I had a feeling they were closely related -him and Amaris- but wooow. Did not see the Jett=Callum thing coming.
And what was that with Nathaniel? Loves to crash parties, doesn't he? Lol
Me wants more!!
Author's Response: Thanks, TarynSage! Yes, I was definitely worried about that, but glad everything went well. :) I'm so happy I at least somewhat surprised you with the connection, even if you did kind of guess the relation. Nathaniel did want to make himself known, as Amaris' little slip of being seen at the scene of the crime did not help suspicions, and Nathaniel figured he'd might as well make an appearance. I promise to update soon! Thanks again for reading and reviewing! :)
Wow. An amazing chapter. I loved how the whole Nightingale family just burst in on the party. And I have to say I knew Jett was Nightingale's son a couple chapters back when the wife who's husband was murdered said he looked just like Nightingale. I have to admit I'm slightly proud of this fact. lol. Though I did know that Demetri wouldn't respond to well to them admitting they were together, I didn't think it would be that bad. Though I am curious as to what Nightingale was talking about business with Demetri. Please update again soon!!!
Author's Response: Thanks, Alice! And congrats on being correct! I had a feeling that was your theory, and I'm happy you caught on. For Demetri, he has more reasons to be upset about the couple than Fauna knows about, and it should be revealed very soon. Thanks for reading and reviewing! I'll update again soon! :)
hahahaha poor Will xP he had 'another' kind of work in mind teehee oi and poor Scout, she just wanted attention lol
Aw James :( though sadly for Luc, even if he hadn't been the 'sleeping around' kind, Amaris would have still gotten to him. Sad chapters indeed. I can just see this getting better and better. You have a twisted mind, you! lol
Author's Response: Thanks, TarynSage! Well, with a war possibly coming, the need to be working on that is a little more important at the moment, right? ;) You are right about Amaris, James was just an easier target for the fact that he was a womanizer. Poor Luc is just trying to be a protective older brother, and with Josephine being the way she is, it can be frustrating for him. Things will get a lot more interesting soon, I can promise you that. (haha, I do have a twisted mind, but you already knew that. :P) Thanks for reading and reviewing! :) I promise to post up another chapter soon enough... when I get the chance.
Definitely, Harry didn't deserve losing James :( I know it's plot and all, but damn that guy just can't have a happy life, can he?
Amaris being there was compleeeetely unexpected. She's never done that before, has she? Sticking around after a murder.... I bet she just wanted to see Harry's reaction ¬¬
As for the others... baby! hahahaha they just keep popping up, don't they? xD And I'm sure Viev and Demetri will accept Will.... eventually :P
Author's Response: Thanks, TarynSage! Harry has had it rough, hasn't he? And no, Amaris normally finishes the job and leaves, never looking back. Although here, she may have wanted to retrieve some personal items but also, Amaris hates being in the dark and may have felt the need of making herself known, this being the perfect opportunity. After all, she did just kill the son of the Boy Who Lived. And yes, the babies just keep on coming.... As for Genevieve and Demetri, well... they're going to have to accept Will at some point. Thanks for reading and reviewing! :)
so i guess now i know what all happened in seeking a reason. poor james. but i must say that you are a master of plot my dear. you're very good at coming up with new twists and turns.
Author's Response: Thanks, karamaire! Yes, that is the very summarized plot of 'Seeking a Reason', but there are other things that happen and actually, both this story and 'A Mix of Alliances and Sentiments' were disregarded while writing 'Seeking a Reason'. Thank you so much for that compliment! It's so great to hear that. Thanks for reading and reviewing and I'm glad you liked this! :)
It was a very nice funeral. I feel so sad for the family, and I love how you threw in Libby from your other story. I love how Will was at the funeral to be there for Fauna, and I love how suspicious Demetri is of him. And poor Luc he's so scared for them all. Though does he know about Will and Fauna being together? I must say that I love Scout though. I can't wait for another new chapter. Keep up the amazing work mzap!
Author's Response: Thanks, Alice! I'm glad you liked the chapter so much and I did have to thrown in Libby's story in there... it just felt right. Luc does know about Will and Fauna, quite a few people do, and while everything's pretty hush-hush when Fauna's parents are around, I'm sure there have been a few near slips (oh, drabble idea! haha). Thanks again for reading and reviewing! :)
Great new chapter. I loved how you were able to write the emotions that Harry was going through after seeing James. Though I was shocked that Amaris had the audacity to show up at the murder scene just to goad them on. It was great of Kathy to have them all over, and that Clive and Loretta are expecting. I hope the funeral will turn out well with no unexpected visitors, and that Fauna will be able to tell her family about her and Will without to much drama. Please post again soon!
Author's Response: Thanks, Alice! I'm glad you liked Harry, as I found him the hardest to write for this chapter, particularly in trying to channel the anger and anguish he would feel at losing a child. Amaris isn't one that likes to be ignored and she likes making her presence known, so yes, she had a bit of fun showing up at the crime scene. Kathy doesn't usually like to entertain, but she figured this would be a good break for the group. Let's hope the funeral goes smoothly and most of all, the reveal. Thanks again for reading and reviewing! :)
so the chapter was absolutely wonderful as usual but i still can't get the whole part of jett being called nightingale out of my mind. something quite disturbing is going on there.
Author's Response: Thanks, karamaire! Yes, there is something odd there, but I can't say what until later. I'm glad you enjoyed the chapter and thanks for reading and reviewing! :)
Amazing new chapter. I loved seeing the reaction of Mrs. Gamp to her husband and butlers murders. I have to say I am getting quite an idea of a certain character, not sure if it's true but I shall keep my opinions to myself if it does end up true. I knew what was going to happen with James, but it still shocked me, and about broke my heart. Sad ain't it? I can't wait for another chapter, and keep up the good work mzap!
Author's Response: Thanks, Alice! :) Hmm... I'm curious as to what these ideas are, but I'll understand if you keep them to yourself... at least until a little more is revealed. As for James, yes, sad but true... I, in fact, have a drabble concerning what actually happened to him. Thanks again for reading and reviewing and I'm glad you liked the chapter!
HOLY SHMUZ! (I doubt I can curse in a review, but you get my drift xP)
Woooow Jett!! That's so wrong! Nonooonono he shouldn't have done that! If Will finds out, he'll kill him dead!
And well Amaris.... hahaha wow. That rhyme sounds way more macabre when she sings it. I see what you meant now... she's bad. Very bad. It's like an addiction to her, this. And I do remember Sebastian Gamp... haha nice way of bringing him back into the picture (and then wiping him off it). I suppose his murder will be investigated in the next chapter, as well as Jett's new daring D:
Anyway, I'm sorry I took so long to review :( you know how life twists and turns for me. But this was a great chapter! I hope to see more like this one :P
Author's Response: Thanks, Taryn! Yes, Will won't be happy about this, to say the least. However, given at how rapidly things will be going in the next few chapters, it will soon be the least of his worries. Amaris does have an addiction to this and you'll eventually have more insight into her as the story goes along. There will be some old characters making brief appearances, yes. As for your predictions for the next chapter, all will be revealed soon. I know how busy you've been but thanks for taking the time to read and review! :)
oh snap! what a cliffhanger. for someone being a little clumsy over himself, he was quite sly there. i loved the duality of this chapter. starting with such an intense murder scene and then moving to an unrequited love scene. and i appreciate the quick update! i hope the next one will be even quicker...hint hint. ;-)
Author's Response: Thanks, karamarie! All I can say is that there's a lot more to Jett that meets the eye and yes, he was a little sly there, I would think. I'm glad you liked the duality... it actually wasn't intentional, just the sequence of events but I like the way you put it better. ;) Thanks for reading and reviewing! :)
Let me say first off, OOOOHHHH Will is gonna be mad!!!! Now since that's out of the way, great new chapter. Glad to see that we finally meet this Amaris. Can't wait to see what happens in the next chapter especially when Will finds out. I'm hoping that Fauna shall be slapping Jett but that's just me. Update soon please!!!
Author's Response: Thanks, Alice! I know you were looking forward to this chapter so I'm glad you enjoyed it. Will... won't be pleased, to say the least. And you'll be seeing plenty more of Amaris in the future. Thanks for reading and reviewing! :)
I knew it! I knew it! I knew Jett fancied her and that he was going to try something with her. I hope Fauna doesn't pretend to be his girlfriend to please her parents. Anyway, my favorite part was the first half of the story with Amaris. There for a minute I thought she was going to the Rosier mansion to kill Demetri. I enjoyed reading the new chapter as always. You are truly talented, mzap. Nicely done. :)
Author's Response: Thanks, Crystal! Can't say much as to how Fauna will react; you'll just have to wait until the next chapter. ;) I'm glad you liked Amaris' part and no, no harm to Demetri yet. Nathaniel has other plans for him that will be far worse. Thanks for reading and reviewing! :)
that was intense bit of information from jett. my mouth gaped when i read that! but i'm happy you are enjoying putting out these chapters as much as i am reading them. keep 'em coming!!!
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing, karamarie! I'm glad you're enjoying this and I promise to keep the chapters coming. :)
hahahahaha wow! I cant believe it was Jett who knew Amaris. Well done, boys, if you had asked him first, you would have known earlier. Lol
Will is being quite the optimist. I'm sure his author will set him straight ;) Loved how he's uncomfortable around Josie when she tells the stories of her adventures ahem xD
Me wants more :D loool
Author's Response: Thanks, TarynSage! Well, all things left aside, the boys didn't really think someone, who they believed knew very little about the purebloods in Britain, could help find a killer who was deep in the Purity and had no connections to the US. How wrong they were, lol. Will is a bit of an optimist, but like many others in their generation, they don't really understand the severity of the problem like Fauna does. The funny thing about Josie is that she clashes with a lot of Fauna's closer friends and even a bit with Fauna, but they're still very close. Thanks for reading and reviewing! :)
I hope for Fauna's sake that Will is right. I shudder to think of what Amaris is capable of doing to her. Josephine sounds like a real piece of work. I enjoyed reading this as always. I'm looking forward to the next chapter. Please update again soon. Nicely done. :)
Author's Response: Thanks, Crystal! Amaris is capable of a lot of things, but for the time being, her concern isn't Fauna. Josephine... yes, is a real piece of work. She's very different from her siblings and just out there. However, I love writing her. Thanks for reading and reviewing! :)
Great 2 chapters. I didn't even see when you put up the last one. So... do you think you can speed up the party so they can finally tell Fauna's parents? I'd very greatly appreciate it! Also who is the Amaris? Is she even real? I can't wait for another update, keep working on that magic mzap!!!
Author's Response: Thanks, Alice! Well, I'm so excited about posting all of these, so I'll see what I can do about speeding things up. ;) And Amaris is very real, as much as a lot of people don't want to accept it. You'll meet her soon enough. I'm so glad you're enjoying this and I'll update as soon as I can. Thanks for reading and reviewing! :)
