Ahhh, they both had dark pasts and secrets though. Very intriguing!
Sorry, this is going to be a really crappy review, but this has been an interesting read. Your smut was rather beautiful and edgy. Theo was lovely in the end. Hmm, did she tell him about the abortion, I wonder?
One crit. Hannah's mum died in HBP, so she can;t be at the wedding. Perhaps you could make it Augusta or an aunt.
Well done for completing on time. ~Carole~
Author's Response: Ooh, thanks for catching that - I kind of wrote this last minute in between swim practices. Theo did learn about the abortion (the story is compliant with Picking Up the Pieces, which I wrote for Jess 193842390 years ago) but he wasn't part of the decision, which was what really drove a wedge between him and Susan. Thank you so, so much - it really means a lot that you read and reviewed this fic to the end (and were the only one to do so :) ). xx Ariana
Then I shall leave you one and decry the fact that this has no more. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE? REVIEW REVIEW REVIEW.
Really getting into this, Ariana. I was wondering where this was going because Daphne seemed a bit to archetypal b1tch at first, but she has hints of depth and a backstory that I'm really intrigued by.
I don;t know what I want to happen, now.Theo seems decent, but I still think he was an idiot to want Susan to be Daphne's friend. I kind of half want Susan to hook up with Hannah - ha ha ha.
Well done. There's some beautiful writing here. ~Carole~
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the review, Carole - it was a lovely way to start my day :). Daphne should reveal herself (in more than one way, of course ;) ) in the next chapter, which is set to be the last one but I'm not sure yet. Hmm, Susan/Hannah would be interesting…Thank you, again! xx Ariana
WHOOAAAAAA! Okay, why does this have no reviews. I'm shocked! This is fabulous, Arianna. Ughh, I'm sickenly jealous as you've just raised the bar - yet again!!! .
Your smut scenes are brilliant, do you know that. They sound so delicious and poetic and yet so very real, and I was reading it and gasping.
I liked the set up here and actually had sympathy with both Theo and Susan, but not Daphne who was really not that good a person (but very sexy! HOTDAMN!). Daphne I found interesting because it seemed that she'd been interested in Susan for quite some time as she'd pestered Theo to meet her. She was so very manipulative - mwahahahahah.
Great story, and good luck in the challenge! ~Carole~
Author's Response: Yay! I am so thrilled that you liked it. I think the reason it's taken me so insanely long to finally write this is because whenever I try to write sequels they usually fall flat, so I was worried with this one. Daphne is my favorite character to write ever, probably because it's so hard to feel sympathetic towards her (maybe later on that will change…hmmm ;) ) if that makes sense. Thank you so much for reviewing, Carole, I love that you read this. xx Ariana
