Okay that last review was a bit spontaneous and not very good, so I'll rewrite it. I like the story- well written and pretty hot O.o You should really write more!!
I'm glad you enjoyed the story. I had fun writing it, and I got to explore two brand new characters in depth and a few others in a more minor role. I don't know if I'll be shipping these two again, but I definitely intend to write about these two in some other capacity in the future.
Thanks for the review. Have a nice night!
WRITE MORE DAMNIT!!!
Author's Response: Sorry, dearie. This story is only meant to be a one-shot. Maybe if the birthday girl for whom it was written wants a sequel, I'll add to it next year, but for the time being, it's going to remain a short story. :/
That Slash warning is annoying, isn't it? Urgh. It spoils the surprise element. But, getting to the story, I have to say, it was BRILLIANT! You need to continue this, my friend. I absolutely demand a sequel, even though I'm scared your Terry might get stuck in my head before I start my own project on him.
I think this is one of those fics where your sense of humour - the one which I obsess over ahaha - comes across strongly. Douche!Michael made me laugh so much. But the rest was also as enjoyable, and I particularly enjoyed the dialogue. My only complaint is that you cheated us of some smut. Hee hee hee.
Really liked it, and you must write more.
Hehe, this was really just a product of me picking the most random freaking characters that came to me and paired them together for Emma's enjoyment. If I'd have put smut in there, it would've been a really, really long story, and I was already running late for work. XD
I just decided that not everyone is nice and there had to be at least one a******, and that just happened to be Michael. I don't know if that's my own personal canon or not, but it might be. I'll decide later when I write about his son, Garrett, who'll be James Jr's bestie.
I might write more on this story here and there, add a chapter perhaps. It might become my writers' block story like Harmony was supposed to be. I rather do like these two together, even hough i tend to ship Theo/Susan and Terry/dead.
Thanks for stopping by, dearing. I heart you muchly.
That was a fun story! It's annoying that because you have to put the slash warning on you know that something is going to happen. I love the characterisation, particularly of Theo (who I've always liked- partly because I think that's such a cool name). Their reactions are very realistic. I love your dialogue as well- it's so real. Arg essay to write not reviews even if the story is excellent. Thanks as always and happy birthday to Emma!!
Ho, Alex! Long time, no see!
You know, to be honest, this was just the first random minor character pairing I came up with, because that's Emma's favourite. I have learnt lately that I have a rarepair fixation, and this is just a new extension of that. I don't expect the Slytherins who left before the Battle to feel bad about not staying, but they were still deeply affected by it. Add to that being 'different'... I sort of expect Theo to be a little screwed up. And Terry is just in the mix with everyone else.
Did I put a slash tag on there? Heh. I'll be sure to take it off if I did. I don't use a 'Slash' tag unless I actually have written slash. Gay characters =/= slash. It bothers me, too.
Thanks for reading and reviewing, plus hugs for the recommendation in Fiction Junction. :D
Poo. I hadn't realised MNFF had chopped my review. Anyway, the basics were: JESS. I
I think it chopped your review again, but I think it had something to do with the little heart thing. Anything in brackets is picked up as coding, hence why it's chopping it off. I am just glad, or hoping rather, that you like it. :D
I am a long-time reader of Mugglenet fanfiction, but this is my first time commenting in any capacity. I have been genuinely enjoying your writing over the past month or so, but I have to say that you have made a huge mistake with this story- namely, that you seem to be creating such compelling characters with no intention of considering a continuation of this story. Please don't give up on Boot and Nott! It is a pairing that I would certainly never have come up with myself, but the characters are so not-fleshed-out in JKR's canon that I can't help but be curious as to what will happen next. Please, don't make this a one-shot! And many thanks to the birthday girl for inspiring this wonderful story.
Lol, wow. I never in my life expected to hear the phrase 'don't give up on Boot and Nott'. I'm not going to lie... this was just a random pairing that I came up with because the birthday girl loves slashy things involving minor characters. And me, personally, I really just love obscure characters (hence my gigantic Katie/Oliver romance) and knowing the stories behind them, the things that JKR would never bother thinking about. I'm really glad you appreciate it. :)
Thanks so much for reading and reviewing.
