Good chapter and suspenseful ending. Though I feel like there was a slight change in genre and atmosphere in the last couple of chapters. I particularly like your portrayal of Hufflepuffs nastiness and Ravenclaws cluelessness, not setting in stone a character behavior depending on the house they belong.
Hoping for a nice ending for the story.
Author's Response: Maybe the change is due to the fact that I took a big break between chapters and my writing style changed. Also this is the climax of the story, it tends to change the tone a little bit. Thank you so much for the review and for reading. Hopefully the next one won't take too long. Cheers!
Hey. I just wanted to say that I think you have written an incredibly compelling story. Usually I find romance stories to be entertaining but not stimulating. But you have created a story that is actually sort of suspenseful and actually makes me feel invested in the characters. I love it. I'm glad that you are back to writing it again!
Author's Response: Oh, thank you so much to your kind words! It means a lot to me that you've taken the time to read it and even more to write a review. I'm glad you like the characters. I've invested a lot of time in them and I'm glad it shows. The next and final chapter it's almost done so hopefully it will be up soon. Thanks again!
Gah cliffhanger!! Please update soon!
Author's Response: The next chapter it's almost done. It'll hopefully be up soon. Thank you for the review!
Everything seems against Ariel, at least in the love department, thought maybe he's sabotaging himself as Hendrik mentioned earlier; he's expecting that everyone else suffers in the same way without seeing that those surrounding him suffer too in different ways. I really like the development of your story, in the hands of lesser author this would have turn already in a mess of angst and melodrama. Hope to see another chapter soon.
Author's Response: I guess Ariel's life could be summed up as a mess of angst and melodrama haha. Is he sabotaging himself? I don't know. It's an interesting way of looking at it. Maybe he is. I'll be updating this. I don't know when to be honest because I'm really busy at the moment, but I WILL update because I've made it my personal mission to finnish this story. Thank you so much for the review!
Loving this fic as it's completely different to the majority and has a unique style. Please update soon!
Author's Response: Hi thank you! I'll try to update as soon as I can.
I've followed this story through and I'm praying for a swift next chapter !! I LOVE the plot, the humour and even more the characters... Your knack for bringing them to life is unreal, ironically. More please !!!!
Author's Response: Hi, thank you so much for this review! I swear I haven't forgotten about this story, it's really torturing me the fact that I haven't updated in so long. I will come back, I just have to organize my life, but I will upload the next chapter. I promise. Thanks again for the review.
Ahh! What a cliff hanger! Can't wait for the next installment. I like how Hendrik ends this chapter in more of an Ariel type of mood.
Author's Response: I don't know what's going on with me. I'm usually not a cliffhanger writer lol. I'm working on the next chapter as we speak, it hopefully won't take long. As for Hendrik, well I guess Ariel isn't the only one with inner turmoil ;) Thanks for the review!
Glad you keep going with the story; you've certainly got talent creating believable characters, Ariel is a bit though but certainly his context have toughen him up.
Author's Response: Hi! Thank you so much for the review! It might take me a while to update, but I'm not giving up on this one! I find it interesting you describe Ariel as being tough because a lot of people wouldn't describe him like that and especially not himself, but he is tough, in some ways. Thanks again for the review!
I was so glad you updated this story !!!! I follow a lot unfinished fanfiction so I have a little checklist so I remember to go back to all te good ones and this story is totally in the top tens. I really love the way this story is going. It's really exciting to read and very well written ! How long do you plan on making it ? I hope you keep at because I'm enjoying this story immensely. :)
Author's Response: Yay! You totally made my day with this review. Hopefully I will now be updating much faster (As a matter of fact, chapter 5 is in the queue right now). I was on a hiatus for a period of time because I had trouble finding a beta, but now I've found one and she's lovely. Which means I'm back. I'm really glad you're enjoying the story. Thanks again for your lovely comments!

Author's Response: Thank you!
Wow, I was one of the readers of your last story and I must say I'm surprised that you take up again this project albeit in a completely different and unexpected way though in a coherent solution. I really love the approach that you take in this story trying to distance it to the HP series though remaining in the same universe and changing some house stereotypes; by the way I really love one of the characters of your original story I think he was the father of an ex of Ariel and he always spoke on first person hope he can make some kind of return. Hope you keep on with this fic.
Author's Response: I'm still surprised to find people around who read the other story! I really wanted to work with these characters again and go back to this universe, but I couldn't use the old plot anymore. It doesn't make sense to me anymore. I had completely forgotten about Mr. Wimund! To be honest, I didn't have plans to bring him back, but I might do it just for you. He was a lot of fun to write. Thank you for your lovely message! You made my day.
This story is really great ! I can't wait for the next installment :)
Author's Response: Thank you so much! Hopefully the next chapter won't take long. Thanks again for the review.
It was such a pleasant surprise to find this story! I had read your previous one and been disappointed that stopped writing it. It is great so far, I can't wait to read more!
Author's Response: Oh wow, I really can't believe there are still people out there who read the first one. I'm really, really, really sorry I disappointed you. I promise not to do it this time around. I'm glad you've enjoyed it so far.
Dropping by again :) I loved the story so far. I think Christian's hiding something... I just want things to get better for Ariel! He's actually pretty nice.
Author's Response: Hi! I'm really glad you're enjoying the story! Christian may or may not be hiding something and things will get better for Ariel... eventually! Thank you so much for the review.
I loved the humor you put in there. Really nice story so far, and I think Ariel's one great character. It'll be fun to see where it goes!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for being my first reviewer! I'm glad you enjoyed the first chapter. I hope I can update soon. Once again, thanks!
