Hello! Unfortunately, I have gone insane right now. Please leave a message after the BEEP. Okay? Thanks.
Whew... glad I got that over with. So, basically I am a 14 year old girl who is named Emma and who is mildly insane and extraordinarily hyper. I love making random jokes and completely random and innapropriate times which tends to drive my parents crazy but makes my brother laugh like a loony. Haha. Its fun.
I am completely and utterly obsessed with David Cook and I actually cried from happiness when he won American Idol. My friends say that he's ugly, but I think that he is one of the most adorable things on earth. Rock on, David!
Now.... here is some random information that will probably bore you to death but I feel like putting it here anyways.
Favorite HP Book: Deathly Hallows, closely followed by Prisoner of Azkaban
Favorite HP Movie: Order of the Phoenix
Favorite Non-HP Books: 'Warriors', 'Percy Jackson and the Olympians', 'Artemis Fowl', 'Alex Rider', 'Eragon', and a squintillion others that I don't feel like listing
Favorite Non-HP Movies: Um... almost anything Disney, 'Monty Python and the Holy Grail', 'Star Wars', and the Shrek movies
Favorite Food: Steak, mashed potatoes, salad, tacos, ice cream, and cake. They don't taste very good all mixed together, though. Not that I've actually tried it.... ewwness.

Least Favorite Characters: Almost all of the Death Eaters, Draco Malfoy, Lavendar Brown, Cho Chang, and Viktor Krum
Okay, so if you guys are still alive after all of that, I guess you can stay around for a little bit more, eh? As you can see right now, I'm not much of an "author" but I'm trying to get some fanfiction up. I've actually written a lot but some of it is too darn stupid to put up and others are written on paper and I'm too lazy to type them. So, yeah.
I love writing and one day I hope to have a couple of novels published. If you ever see a book with my name on the cover, don't hesitate to pick it up! Actually, I'm working on a novel right now, but I don't know if it's any good.
I also love dancing. I take four classes a week and am in many shows. Its great fun and even though I'm not super-duper good, I still have fun. The only thing that I don't like are the tutus. Ugh... I look so weird in them... Lol.
My favorite fanfic in the history of the world is the Potter's Pentagon Trilogy by Schmerg_the_Impaler. Everyone in the world should read them as they are truly amazing, awesometastical, awesome-possum, spifftastic, and chillrific.
I think I'm done rambling. Adios!
Summary: This is book two in the "Potter's Pentagon" trilogy. Read "Potter's Pentagon: The Five" first, myesss? Cool.
WARNING: This story contains French people, an internal monologue about a blue orange, adolescent facial hair, good old-fashioned snogging, superstitious truck drivers, a portrait who calls everyone "Mavis," a zoo break-in, some very strange clothes, romantic conflict galore, and Ron Weasley's caffeine addiction. And worst of all, Professor Zabini!
Hogwarts is hosting the Triwizard Tournament, and when one of the members of Potter's Pentagon is selected to represent the school, much excitement ensues. Simultaneously, elections are being held for Minister of Magic, and things are getting busy at the Ministry.
Not to mention the fact that Jordan's made a new Muggle friend without informing her of the itty-bitty fact that he's magical, Haley has found an enchanted diary of dubious origin, Ted's met a werewolf from Beauxbatons, and Emma... well, Emma's not having a good year.
And what exactly is Ivy up to, anyway?
Everyone has secrets. But in the end, the truth will have to come out.
Starring Best Male Original Character runner-up Jordan Potter, Best Female Original Character Nominees Ivy Potter, Emma Weasley, Haley Potter, and Giorgi Anderson, and Best Male Original Character nominee Ted Lupin! Nominated for Best Post-Hogwarts story in the 2008 Quicksilver Quill Awards!
Tyrone’s jaw dropped and small, nonsensical noises very much like “Mimblewimble,” managed to escape from his mouth. His handsome face had the tense look that came with trying desperately from giving away emotions. “I should have known it was too good to be true,” he muttered quietly, and walked away without any of his usual jaunty bounce in his step.
I just have to give that paragraph a nice big awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww. And I have to say poor Tyroonie. *hugs him* Emma is so, I don't know, grrrr sometimes. (can a person be grrr?)
Emma and Marina's hostages got mixed up? Hmmm.... very interesting. Marina is such a weirdo. Does she have any friends? Grrr.... I don't like her!
No Giorgi in this chappie??? I miss her and it's only been one chapter! She's just cool and she has awesome punctuation!!!!!!!!!!
Okay, you know how my brother doesn't think that Ivy is a name? Well, my mom doesn't think that Jordan is a boy's name. AHHHHH!!!! My family has gone insane!
Author's Response: Yeah, I feel horrible every time I make Emma do something terrible to Tyrone. She can really be grrr. I guess the thing is that if she wasn\'t, she\'d be a total Mary-Sue.
Well, we know Marina has friends \'cos she was hanging out with them in Chapter Six, but... we\'ll get more into that later.
I miss Giorgi, too. Luckily, she\'s in the next chapter and plays a very big part in all of the chapters after that.
Hmmm... Jordan was a surname/ place name that became a boys\' name, but then it became a girls\' name, like Taylor. But now it\'s much more popular for girls and you hardly ever hear of boys with that name, just like how \"Leslie\" can be a boys\' name or a girls\' name and it was a boys\' name first, but now you only ever hear girls named \"Leslie.\"
I just realized that in my last review, I completely focused on Emma (almost) and forgot a bunch of other things that are worth reviewing!
Wow... Emma actually read Hogwarts: A History! Amazing! Hermione must have been sooooooo happy. I mean, Hermione's probably the only person in the world who has actually read the whole book! Well, maybe.
Charybdis Nott is such a meany-head! Although I liked Jordan's little "speech" that he gave to her. It was very interesting. Jordan likes to use big words, doesn't he?
Awwww.... I feel bad for Emma. She thinks that she's mean. Well, she is sometimes, but most of the time she either doesn't mean it or doesn' think before she says it. I love how she realized how not "anyone" can make Tyrone cry. I can tell that she feels bad about it (partly because she secretly LUUURRRRRRVVVVEEEEESSSSSSSS Tyrone. That was immensly fun to type!)
Oh my gosh!!!! Ivy finished studying!!! Does this mean that we will find out what she was studying pretty soon. I want to know!!!!! I've though about it but I can't think of anything good!
It sounds like Ivy looked extremely nice for the Yule Ball. And Haley and Emma of course. Emma seems to like maroon even though her father hates it! The Yule Ball was very nice. I really enjoyed it. Haley danced with Vladislav was very inexpected! Vladislav is such a funny name... hee hee ha ha....
Who is Lee????????? They don't seem like an evil person and I really hope that they aren't. Lee is also very funny and coolish (I guess... unless Lee is an evil minion in disguise...)
I was looking at your response to my earlier review for this chapter and I can't believe you said that Emma and Tyrone are going to get together!!! Now I am even more excited than I was before!!!! OH MY GODRIC!!!! This is awesome. Sorry... that made my day though... And since you said that writing it was one of the highlights of your life, I am guessing that it doesn't go anything like this: Emma: Tyrone, I love you!
Tyrone: I love you too!
Both: YAY!!!!!!! Let's be together now!!!
Yea... that would just be weird! Anyways.... SUPEZR ULTRA AMAZINGLY GREAT AND AWESOMETASTICAL CHAPTER and I can't wait until the next one!!!!!! Is it the second task????
~Emma!!!!! (I am using way too many exclamation points!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There I go again...)
Author's Response: Wow, I do love multiple reviews that aren\'t double posts!
Hahaha, Charybdis is such a jerrrkkkfaaace. I love writing Jordan\'s wordy little speeches... I know people (okay, I am one of those people) who end up using big words without intentionally trying to show off just because they read so much and the words just come through into conversation.
You will seeee about Ivyyyy. Yeah, Emma likes maroon BECAUSE her father hates it. She picked out the robes to watch her father turn maroon himself! ^_^
I would be just too evil if I built up all this Tyrone and Emma stuff but never officially let them get together! Would I really do that to you? It\'s certainly a very... innnnteresting scene.
Thanks so much yet again for reviewing!
OHHHHHHHMYYYYYYYYGODRICCCC!!!!!!!!!!!! I JUST THOUGHT OF SOMETHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Since Emma is one of the Triwizard Champions that means that she will HAVE to take a date to the Yule Ball even though she thinks that that kind of thing takes all the fun out of life (at least she said so in book one). But, if she doesn't go to the ball with anyone, she'll look really weird. Who will she go with though? *coughTyronnecough*
Anyways, like I said in an earlier review, this chapter is full of pure awesomeness and it totally rocks! YAYYYY!!!! Can't wait for the next chapter! You said it will be the FIRST TASK!!!! WOOT WOOT WOOOOOOOOOOOT!!!!!!!
Your Insanely Crazy and Somewhat Hyper Fan,
P.S. I was reading through some of the other reviews and since I am really new to MNFF I was confused by a few things. For example, what does it mean when a character is a Mary-Sue? And what does OTP mean?
Author's Response: MWAHAHAHAHAHA, you read me like a fanfiction. Yes, one of the reasons why I made her a champion was because of the Yule Ball.
I still don\'t understand a lot of this slanguage that fanfic people use. A Mary-Sue is a cheesy female character who is perfect and flawless and redonkulously beautiful and talented. An OTP is your ONE TRUE PAIRING, the two people you believe are really destined for each other.
OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s finally up! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am very happy right now! This has to be my favorite chapter so far. It was amazing!
Awwwwww… I feel bad for Emma. It’s so obvious that she likes Tyrone. She just doesn’t want to admit it. I knew that Tyrone would go to the Yule Ball with Marina! Didn’t I say it about ten thousand times? Okay, maybe not that many, but whatever! Emma was jealous! I love how she thought that Tyrone was going with Haley and she was saying how they should hang out at the Ball. But, then Tyrone says that he’s going with Marina… poor Emma. I expected her to get a little bit more annoyed but I guess that she doesn’t want to show her feelings.
“Emma stared at him, and if looks could inflict physical harm, Tyrone’s handsome face would have been violently slashed and shredded.” Wow, she must be really mad. I missed that the first time I read this chapter.
“She had missed her chance, and now there was nothing she could do… but missed what chance? A chance for what? She was confusing herself” Awww… Emma feels that she’s missed her chance to go out with him I guess. How cute!
I also love what Emma says when she talks to Haley. She keeps saying I don’t know… poor confused Emma. She’s having a lousy year so far.
It was very interesting that you had Jordan go to the Ball with Emma. I bet he just loved that… I mean, Jordan is the Ball type, right? *is very sarcastic*
Ha ha… I bet Haley’s pockety jacket just looked wonderful with red and gold sequins on it. She has a very odd fashion sense lots of times! That’s okay though, Haley is awesome. Did I mention that yesterday I was just like her? (without meaning to be of course cuz that would be weird). Yeah… I got the sudden urge to do a bunch of cartwheels in gym class and after that I was extremely hyper.
Oh my Godric… the Ted/Ivy stuff was soooooooooooooo adorable! It was done wonderfully. They’re finally together! But, I feel bad for Arden. She was the one crying at the Ball, right? Professor Zabini was really weird though. He just left Ted and Ivy in the closet and only took 20 points from Gyrffindor? I was expecting him to flip and drag them out and give them detention and then do something else mean.
“Oh, yes, that’s right, it had been a dream; that’s why Tyrone had been wearing a leather miniskirt.” HA HA HA!!!!!!! I don’t even want to imagine Tyrone walking around in a miniskirt, but it was still really funny!
The Yule Ball was wonderful, though I would have enjoyed this big Emma and Marina fight. My Inner Eye sees another one in the future though, so I mustn’t worry. I really don’t like Marina… she’s annoying and she stole Tyrone from Emma!!!!!!! Well, not really cuz Emma and Tyrone were never “going out” but you know what I mean.
Jordan used CAPS LOCK in his e-mail to Giorgi??????? Wow… I never thought that that would happen!!!!! Yay Jordan! Caps Lock rules!!!!!!!!
Overall, this was the best chapter yet!!! Although my favorite one will be when Emma and Tyrone finally get together! (Watch it not be until the second to last chapter of the third book… Wait… you don’t have to watch, you already know what happens!!!) SQUUUUUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can’t wait for the next chapter!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Author's Response: You\'re a very good guesser! There\'s something adorable about Emma\'s stubborn denial... gets it from her parents, I think. I have a lot more fun writing about her and Tyrone than Ted and Ivy, possibly because she and Tyrone are so AWKWARD and CLUELESS.
I\'m so glad you liked the Ivy/Tedness. It was the first real romance I\'ve ever written... I was very worried about it. I don\'t normally like romance. I\'m kind of Jordanish in that respect! ^_^
Oh, that Zabini. He has a bit of a soft spot for romance. And who could blame him, he\'s like an older, embittered Tyrone! Speaking of Tyrone... LEATHER MINISKIRT SQUICK. *Rakes eyes out with tiny, eye-sized rakes*
I do love the idea of an Emma/Marina fight, but Emma could hardly flounce right up to Marina and yell, \"HOW DARE YOU DANCE WITH MY MAN!\" She won\'t even admit to herself she likes Tyrone, so she can\'t really make a big production about it. Hers is more the stewing, churning internal anger that makes you eventually snap and run around killing people and singing, \"I will have VENGEANCE, I will have SALVATION!\"
Yeah, the madness is spreading! JORDAN USED CAPS LOCK! *Drinks fizzy apple cider in celebration*
I will tell you right now that writing the scene in which Tyrone and Emma get together (yes, they do eventually get together, though I won\'t say where or when) was one of the highlights of my life. I had more fun writing that than anything else I\'ve ever written!
Yay! It made my day when I found out that this was validated. Unfortunately, I found out in the morning, read a couple paragraphs and then had to go to school. Yep. I had to endure a whole schoolday waiting to get home so that I could find out what happened. This chapter was amazing, though. It totally rocked my world.
Ooo, its way cool how Vlady had an article in the paper. He's a cool dude.And he has a super awesome name so even if he was an evil person who wanted to take over the whole world, I would still like him. I think...
Aw man, I love Jordan's little scene where he realizes that he's changed. It was very nice. I liked how you compared Harry to the star actor in a film and Jordan to the director. That was quite lovely. And Jordan was HAPPY which is even lovelyer. YAAAAAY!
Wowzzers! Lee is Lily Evans. I actually though of that idea one day when I was in the shower, but then I was like "Naaaah," but I guess that I was right initially and I thought that I was wrong but I wasn't. Cool.
Hehe, Ted/Ivy is cute in this chappie. But, their relationship is a little bit too perfect, if you know what I mean. I much prefer Emma/Tyroonie and Jordan/Giorgi. Yup. ^_^
Speaking of Emma/Tyrone... SQUEEEEE!!!! Ahhhh, you can't imagine how much I squeed at that chapter. They were so adorable.
“What do you mean?” the boy responded smoothly. “So, uh, what’s up?”
^^ I say that all the time. I seriously never have any idea what to say when people ask me what's up so I always end up replying "the sky" or "the sun".
“Do you, you know, uh, wanna rehearse for our play again?”
Emma displayed a similarly wicked smile. “Yeah, I think I could use some practice,” she said, and the two of them hugged each other, just as before.
^^ Omg. I completely melted into a super happy puddle of Emma (me!!!) at that part. Emma/Tyrone is the cutest thing on earth! Ahhhh! Squeeee! I normally don't like romance at all, but for some reason I am very fond of all the romance-y things in this story. *sigh* I'm such a weirdo.
Ooo! Ooo! *jumps up and down* You know that shirt that Tyroonie was wearing when Marina asked him to the ball? Well, some kid in my grade has that shirt! Its very interesting.
Yay! Group hug! I actually despise group hugs for some reason, but it was very cool in the story. Yay. Yay. I said yay too many times in this review. Ack. I'm going craaazy.
Awwww, I loved the way that you ended it. And I can't believe that Jorjums forgot about O.W.L.s. Jorjums is quite a lovely nickname, though. I'm sure that he loves it! Hehe.
Favorite OC: Emma. Yep. I just really like her character for some reason. She's just plain awesometastical. I also like Haley and Tyrone.
Least Favorite OC: Hmm, well, if it can't be Marina then it would probably be Ivy. I dunno. She's, like, my total opposite. I mean, I like her character, but she would have to be my least favorite out of the main ones (not counting meanie-heads like Charybdis Nott-- I think I spelled her name wrong)
I think that I relate most to Emma. Besides the fact that we share a name, we have quite similar personalities. And we both refuse to tell people who we like. Mwahaha. We're both daring, have not so good tempers, are good friends, and have a random sense of humor. I'm also like Haley because I'm insanely hyper and never stop talking and I'm like Jordan because I get pretty good grades and I don't particurally like hugs.
Anyways, this chapter was amazing. Wait, take that back. This whole book was amazing. This series is amazing. Please, please, please submit the third book soon! I'm super-duper anxious to read it and I will explode if I have to wait a loooooong time. Okay? Thanks.
Author's Response: Hahah, I remember the day I started to read Les Miserables, I had to go to school, and as soon as I got home, my mom was like, \"So, how was your d--\" and I just run past screaming, \"I\'M COMING, LES MIS! DON\'T WORRY, MUMMY\'S HOOOOME!\"
\r\nI agree that Ted/Ivy is a little too perfect... especially in book three... but they do have some very interesting moments to come. Still, I greatly prefer writing about Tyrone/Emma. Oh, and congrats for guessing about Lee-- in the shower? I came up with the idea of giving Haley an enchanted diary with Lily \'in\' it when *I* was taking a shower! MAGIC!
\r\nWeirdly, I channel all of my romantic-ness into this story. I normally hate romance. Oh, and I know someone with that shirt, tooo! And yeah, I think that Ivy is my least favourite (besides Arden) because I don\'t really have much in common with her-- she has her moments, but she\'s not really the kind of person that I really like in real life, either.
\r\nThanks so much for this lovely review and all of the other great reviews that you\'ve given me!
Omg, omg, omg, omg, omg, omg, omg, omg, omg, omg, omg, omg, omg, omg, OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The next chapter is going to be the Yule Ball!!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAYYYYYY!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!! I am realy hyper right now which is probably the cause of this insanely insane review! Anyways.....
I can't wait until the next chapter! It will be AWESOME! Now I have to think of a bunch of random predictions for it. Hmmmmm.... Ivy will go with Ted but she will get jealous at some point because Arden hangs around with them. I think that Tyrone will go with Marina (even though I want him to go with Emma) and then Emma will get really mad she will yell at/smack Tyrone in her anger and then Marina will get mad and she will be all like "oh no you didn't" and then her and Emma will get into another big fight. So... I have no idea who Emma will actually go with. Maybe Vladislav (i hope not!) or some random dude who isn't very important to the actual plot of the story.
As for Jordan... maybe he will invite Giorgi to Hogwarts for the evening... oh wait... he can't do that... at least I don't think. It would be cool if he could though... And I also have no idea who Haley will go with. So much for good predictions...
Anyway... back to the actual chapter... I loved Ted's dreams. They were just so amazingly random and cool. Whta was the rest of the dream that involved Ivy?
Giorgi is also very cool. But, she is a very naughty girl... using the computer when her parents aren't home... tisk, tisk, tisk. Actually, that whole thing was really funny!! Yay funniness!
Over all, I loved this whole entire chapter and can't wait for the next one (as you probably already know cuz I've said it like five thousand times...)
Author's Response: Hehehe, that\'s a lot of exclamation points! And a lot of predictions!
I like the idea of him being like \"HEY GIORGI, I\'M A WIZARD! WANNA COME TO MY DANCE!\" But unfortunately, I did not have that particular stroke of brilliance when I wrote this story.
As for Ted\'s dreams, they\'re modified versions of some of my own dreams! I don\'t know about the zoo dream... I dream about zoos at least four times a week (not sure why), and I had this one dream where my science teacher was selling snow cones but would only let me buy a peanut butter snow cone and I had to tell her the chemical formula for snow cones (?), but that was it. There wasn\'t any more to it.
I do the Giorgi thing sometimes... sneaking onto the computer when I\'m not allowed... that\'s how I posted chapters two through five of this story, actually! (I\'m not allowed on the computer on weekdays, but I like to submit my stories the day the previous chapter was accepted.) But you didn\'t hear that from me!
Yayyyy! The chappie was finally validated! YAHOOOOO! WOOOT! WOOT! *jumps up and down* As you can tell, I am very excited.
Wow. Nice dream that you had there. Mwahahaha! I had a dream the other night that Emma and Tyrone went horseback riding and then they arrived back at the Potter mansion to find Jordan and Giorgi snogging. And then Haley was running around the house screaming "Jordy has a GIRLFRIEND!!!!" And then I woke up. It was weird.
Anyways... maybe I should review the actual chapter now. Team Sparkle is wonderful. And Haley had a brilliant idea! YAY! Go Haley!!! I can't raise an eyebrow either, though, but my brother can and he does it allll the time which is rather irksome. Grrr.
Marina is jealous of Giorgi? Whoa... I never really expected her to say that. Giorgi is pretty cool, though.
OEMSQUEEEE! Vladislav actually speaks. This is amaziing. And major breakthrough in society. Actually, not really. Vladie (I'm going to call him that for now) is pretty cool now that he we've actually read about him talking and stuff. Yuppers. *nods vigorously*
“But there are so many things that could go right! Come on, cheer up! Have some fun, enjoy the… ECHIDNAS! COOL!” *gigglesnort* Ted is so random. What is an echidna, by the way? They have a cool name. Fwahahaha!
Arden and Ivy seem to make good friends. Uh-huh. Yup. Yeppers. Arden was very cool in this chapter and it was funny how she told Dhrrrggh how Ted and Ivy were mates. Hehe. Dhrrrggh has the awesome-est name ever! If I ever get another pet, I will name it Dhrrrggh.
HAHAHAHAHAAAAAA! I bet Jordan looked very attractive with his orange wig and fluffy, bushy, fake eyebrows. Playing stupid must be hard for Jordy, though, because he's so darn smart!
OMG, Jordan/Giorgi is amazingly adorable. Seriuosly, its becoming, like, my obsession. I still like Emma/Tyrone better, but Jordan/Giorgi is right behind it. Squeeeeee!
“Does your girlfriend often faint like this?” he asked. Giorgi’s eyelids almost fluttered open at the dreaded ‘G’ word, but the politician didn’t notice.
^^Heheheheheeee! The dreaded G word. Oh nooooo....
Oh no! Plot twist. *gaaaaaaasp* And Jordan's plan got all messed up. Oh dear! I can't wait to find out what happens next. I hope the the chappie is validated, like, faster than the speed of light. Otherwise, me will not be happy-ful. Nope. Great chapter, as always!!!!! WOOOOOT!
P.S. I would love to enter the reader art contest thing, but I am a terrible drawer and even if I drew something that was remotely presentable, I have no clue how to work the scanner. Maybe I'll draw something on Paint and send it to you.... hmmm.... Bwahahahahahaaaaa!
Author's Response: YOUR DREAM IS SO COOL. Watching Jordan and Giorgi snog would be hilarious... You know, the dynamic you and your brother have is seriously starting to remind me of Haley and Jordan... And Vladie is an awesome nickname, though I\'m so infatuated with the name Vlad that I like to call him that. Echnidnas are like egg-laying hedgehogs that are indiginous to Australia, Yeppers. (Hey, I used your word!) Good luck pronouncing Dhrrrggh if you have a pet! It probably would not come when called ! ^_^ I hope to update vewwy soon!
YAY!!! For some reason I always leave two reviews for a chapter. This is probably because I always think of things to say that I didn't say in the previous review. *shurgs*
I would LOVE to take Haley-ese as a second language. It would be extremely fun. Awesometastical is now a prominent word in my vocabulary. When I first said it my mom was like "That's not a word, Emma" and I'm like "It is now!" But, I guess my family is used to the weird words that I sometimes say.
Agian, I have to say that Jordan is toooooo smart. He know Latin and Parseltounge in addition to English? I took Latin last year, but it was boring and the teacher was weird so I switched to Spanish.
This is really weird, but my brother doesn't think that Ivy is a name. I spent a while trying to convince him that it was, but he still didn't believe me. Oh well, he's just odd.
Haley's conversation with Lee was very cool. I do like Lee and I want to know who it is! TELL ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No wait, don't. I don't fancy having the story spoiled. *attacks spoilers*
Since the title of the next chapter is "In Which We Finally Learn Exactly What's Up" does that that mean we find out about Ivy and Lee? Huh? huh? huh? ^_^ I am hyper right now.
Here are some random questions that you can probably tell me the answer to because they won't spoil anything (I don't think). Okay, when is Emma's birthday? And what is Ivy's middle name? We know the rest of the member's of Potter's Pentagon's middle names and even Tyrone's but not Ivy's...
I have to do a social studies project soon but it gunna be really boring. Grrr... I hate social studies.
CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEXT CHAPTER TO BE VALIDATED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
P.S. I think I use too many exclamation points in reviews. I am rather Giorgi-like sometimes...
Author's Response: Thank you very much! I use words like \'awesometastical\' all the time!
Jordan IS too smart. It\'s a good thing that he\'s not on the dark side, or we\'d all be done for! Much like a friend of mine, he taught himself Latin, and he was born speaking Parseltongue. I personally speak German-- I\'m in German 5.
Hahaha, there was a girl named Ivy in my sixth grade class. That\'s how I know that name. *Shrug*
Speakin\' of Ivy (mine, not the one in my sixth grade class), her middle name is Cassiopeia. Yep. Emma\'s birthday is October 30th, and Tyrone\'s is November 1st (each with a birthday one day away from Halloween). Ted\'s is June 21st. Ivy\'s is April 3rd, though I might change that to a later date in April because of some stuff that happens in the 3rd book. Giorgi\'s is in March, though I can\'t remember the exact date off the top of my head.
I JUST finished a huge history project on Robespierre yesterday! We got to pick the topic for our research project, and I\'m crazy about the French Revolution, so I did my paper on Robespierre, and I had to cut ONE THIRD of it, because it was over the word limit! I was up \'till 12:41 the day before it was due!
SQUEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!! This chapter is finally validated. It took long enough. *groans* I was so excited when I saw that it was up that I almost screamed really loud, but then I remembered that I technically wasn't supposed to be on the computer so that wouldn't have been a very good idea.
Oh no! Apple is a meany-head and he should go die in a dark, endless tunnel of doom. That was rather harsh. Oh well. Go Jordan! He came up with a plan. I'm sure that it totally rocks even though I have no idea what it is!
Haley is sooo funny. Haha. I love her (well, as a character because anything else would be weird.) I ended up gigglesnorting at quite a lot of things that she said/did. Naming my team "Team Sparkle" is totally something that I would do. I tend to come up with really odd team names. Like, in Spanish class we had a random spelling bee and I was forced to be captain and I called my team 'Emma's Super Awesome Team That Is Totally Going to Beat Morgan's Team'. I'm a weirdo.
Yaaaaaaaaaaaaayyy! Giorgi was in the chapter IN PERSON! Par-tay! Her outfit sounds rather interesting and I love the sound of the shoes. I actually almost bought plaid converse but it turned out that they didn't have my size. I got bright teal instead. Anyways, the Jordan and Giorgi scene was very lovely. He told her that he was a wizard! Ohemsqueeeee! How awesome-possum. Although, if I was Giorgi, I would probably refuse to be part of the mission because I would be so darn scared. I mean, every one else can do magic but her???
“I’ll have to take you for a ride sometime on the back of my broomstick,” he told her. “It’s amazing… you’d really enjoy it. You can see everything from up in the clouds, and everything seems so small… er, literally and metaphorically.”
^^^ Hahaha. Cute... Jordan was being so poetic which he normally isn't so it was a nice change. Lol.
Ooooo... Emma's putting in her pigtails. Coolio. I hope that the next chapter is validated extremely soon because I'm dying to know what happens! Ahhhhhh! I hope that they defeat Apple!
Author's Response: EMMMAAAAA! I am glad that you like this. I say that all the time, but it\'s true! I screamed out loud when I learned my story was validated! And I was in the library! I love the name of your team... And yes, Giorgi has returned. OOOOH, teal converses? LOVELY! I have black ones, but they say \'llama\' and \'duck\' on the toes, and I also have rainbow striped ones!
OH MY GODRIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This chapter is finally up! And it was absolutely amazing and wonderful! I loved Emma's fight with Marina... it was really funny (even though it probably would not have been fun to be there!) Now I wouldn't be surprised if Emma ended up torturing Marina into insanity later on in the story.
OMG!!! Tyrone wants a pet giraffe? Why, so do I! Tell me, will he actually get his giraffe or is he just being the usual, random Tyrone?
Wait... so Jordan told Giorgi what he wants his career to be? So that must mean that it's a muggle type job. Lets see... does he want to be a singer, a teacher, a banker, a ballerina, a scuba diver, a cook, or a mountain climber? I want to know! Not that your actually going to tell me...
Poor Ivy... I feel really bad for her. Even though I love Ted, I just want to smack him for being so stupid...
What chapter will the Yule Ball be in? I really am looking forward to that!!!!!! YAY YULE BALL!!!!! Anyways... great chapter and I can't wait for the next one!!!!!!!
P.S. Did you ever get my response to your e-mail?
Author's Response: MAMA MIA, THAT\'S A LOT OF EXCLAMATION POINTS!!!!!!!!!!!!
Tyrone is, I believe, just being his usual random Tyrone, but you never know! When he gets rich, I bet he does buy a giraffe. (That\'s heading down a dangerous path, though... Michael Jackson had a giraffe...)
Well, remember that Jordan\'s been translating everything into Muggle-ese, so Potions is Chemistry and etc. So, if Jordan wanted to be a Healer (and I\'ll tell you now that he doesn\'t want to), he would say doctor. But I think Jordan would be an awesome Singer/Teacher/Banker/Ballerina/Scuba Diver/Cook/Mountain Climber combo!
Yeah, Ted is normally so good with feelings... but I think the reason why he\'s not picking up on Ivy\'s emotions is, he\'s also really modest, and he\'d never assume anyone had a crush on him. Oh Teddy, you silly naive fool! (Though Ivy\'s equally silly for not picking up Ted\'s signals.)
YULE BALL NEXT CHAPTAH, BAYBEYZ!!!11!1!!one!!1!
I did get your response, but I just couldn\'t think of anything to write back in response! 0_0 I hate it when that happens! Then I always put it off and forget about it, because I\'m ebil.
Hi! I would just like to say one little thing.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY HALEY AND JORDAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *hi-fives Haley* *hugs Jordan*
And, so that this isn't considered "spam", I absolutely loved this chapter and the Tyrone/Emmaness was awesometacular! I can't wait until the next chappie. It needs to be validated sooooon!
Author's Response: Thank yooooou! I\'m so glad you remembered their birthday!
Schmergo, Schmergo, Schmergo... Why did you have to leave us with a cliff hanger? Now, we won't be able to read the next chappie for several more weeks... :( Seriously. I can't stand the suspense!!!! AHHHHH!!!! I think I'm going to go insane!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ivy's an animagus! *sings* That's so awesometasticalamazingful! I didn't guess that! So, it was a surprise!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hmmm... Lee.... some other reviewer said that they could be Lily E. Evans and I think that's a reeeeeeeally cool idea. Or maybe Lee is Lee Jordan. But, that seems rather obvious to me. Or maybe Lee is.... *drumroll* SOMEONE!!!!!!!
Haley and Jordan have quite interesting arguments! They're funny! :P Ha ha ha ha HA!!!!
Will Haley ever have a boyfriend? Because, like, there's Ted/Ivy, Emma/Tyroonie, Jordan/Giorgi (maybe) and then Haley/? Maybe she will be paired with that Slytherin prefect, Anatoly (I think that's his name. at least). That could be interesting... ^_^
The judges are cheaters!!!!!!! That's so not cool. They are big, fat meanie-heads. Maybe someone offered them money? Or they thought it would be fun? Or they wanted to go to jail? Or the just wanted some cupcakes? Or maybe they are just evil people at heart and they are on the evil side and rigging a tournament is just theur idea of evil-ness? Or maybe.... aww... neve rmind!
P.S. I used waaaaaaaaaay too many exclamation points, didn't I? Oh, well. I'm hyper right now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Author's Response: My name looks really cool if you put it a lot of times in a row. I AM SO IRRITATED THAT THE QUEUE IS CLOSED!!! Because I really want to update. I\'m glad you didn\'t guess about Ivy, because a lot of people are guessing stuff and spoiling the suprises. As for Lee, you\'ll find out in chapter 13! *zips lips*
Sadly, Haley and Jordan have some really similar arguments to what my younger brother and sister (they\'re twins) have. I just exaggerate them a little and they\'re pretty true to life.
Haley\'s the type who really kind of flirts with everyone and isn\'t that serious about her romance life, so I don\'t really put a lot of it into the story. I\'ve always had the idea that during the course of the trilogy, she\'s had a couple of boyfriends but none too serious. In Haley\'s journey, romance isn\'t really something that makes a big impact in her life (at least during the trilogy).
There is this story that I\'m writing for a NEWTS class on the forums which takes place five years after the events of the trilogy, and it has a lot of stuff on Haley\'s love life... you get to see who she marries and stuff.
Oh yeah-- and another thing about Haley that I\'ll just reveal right now that I\'ve never revealed before is that she\'s always had a HUGE crush on Ted, but she\'s such a good friend that she doesn\'t act at all bitter about him and Ivy. She gets over it, but in the first two books at least, he\'s the main guy she likes. Interesting thought about Anatoly, though... you\'ll definitely see more of him in the third one. *cough* (See, I\'m not JK Rowling, I\'ll reveal information...)
You will see about the judges in the thirteenth chapter... in my opinion, their reasons for rigging the tournament are incredibly slimy, but I\'ll see what you think about it then.
YAY!!!!!! The chapter is up! Hip, hip, hooray!!!!!!! No, I'm not obsessed... Why do you ask? (Okay... maybe that was a lie, I'm obsessed... kinda)
On to the chapter... I loved it! Except for the fact that Emma didn't and I wanted her to win but there are still two other tasks for her to compete in. She WILL win the tournament. At least I really, really, really, really, really hope so. That was a lot of "really's". I really (there I go again...) liked the whole Fwooper thing... It was really fun! Emma went completely insane! It was awesome! Hee hee hee...
I also liked the Potions scene after the tournament. It was pretty cool. I liked when Tyrone and Emma were talking and Zabini asks if they are talking about Potions and Tyrone says that they are and Zabini is like "love potions don't count" and then Tyrone turns bright red. That was cool. *squeeee*
Anyways... I can't wait to read the next chaper (it has a really interesting title... let's see... the various French people would have to be Marina and Arden and the Various English people would be Emma, Tyrone, and Ivy. Arden annoys Ivy because Ivy thinks that she is Ted's girlfriend and Marina annoys Tyrone because she decides that she likes him and this also annoys Emma because she too like Tyrone. That was confusing!) I hope the next chapter is validated soon. Then I can see if my crazy prediction is right! YAY!
~Emma (who happens to be very hyper right now!)
Author's Response: Mwahahahaha, I\'m glad you liked it!
I felt bad about not letting Emma win, but, hey, she still has much further to go. I LOVED writing the Fwooper scene. The second task is even weirder!
Awww, Zabini, what a jerk face he is!
You\'re hyper right now? I never would have guessed! *Very serious face*
YAYYYY!!!! This chapter is finally accepted! Hip, hip, HOOOORAY!!! *does the chapter acceptance dance*
I can't believe that Emma actually wrote the potato joke on the poor Hufflepuff's potions essay. It was hysterical. Will we ever find out what the middle part of the joke is?
Charybdis Nott is pure evil... she should go to jail or have something horrible happen to her.
Tyrone is so amazingly weird. I mean, who in their right mind would be like "Crunch-a-tize me Cap'n!" But, he's still one of my favorite characters.
Arden is kind of cool but she's weird. What kind of person doesn't have any friends? I have a feeling that Ivy will get really jealous because she thinks that Arden is Ted's girlfriend or something...
Speaking of Ivy, what in the world is she up to? She's always reading and taking notes on the reading. Will she ever go back to normal?
Overall, this chapter was amazingly awesome and I can't wait to read the next one!
Your Somewhat Crazy Fan,
Author's Response: THANKS! I can\'t tell you the middle part of the joke... I don\'t even know it. Just think of the most disgusting thing you can think of and put it as the middle part of the joke. Emma is whack, though.
That\'s the thing about people like Tyrone. If they weren\'t so popular, everyone would think they were total freaks, but because he\'s considered so cool, he can basicaly do anything.
You will seeee what Ivy is up to! I think you\'ll like the first chapter because it has the first task!
Oh my Godric... I totally love this story! It is just so amazing and well written and funny and awesome and so many other things that it would take hours to describe!
I tried to submit another review but i don't know what happened to it. It just dissapeared... I think.
I've been reading a bunch of reviews and was suprised to find that a lot of people didn't want Emma to be a champion. Ever since I finished the first book, I was completely rooting for Emma. Speaking of Emma... In the beginning of the first book, she hated Tyrone, but when did she actually start to hate him? Just wondering....
“I’ve exerted myself a lot today, and my eyeballs are merely perspiring.” ha ha ha ha ha!!!!! I was love that line! And I also love how, when Emma comes into the girls dormitory, Haley randomly bursts out singing. She's so random sometimes! But random is good. Yay! Haley randomness power!
I was also wondering how many chapters are in this book. For some reason I like to know that when I'm reading a story. But, if you can't tell me, oh well. No big deal.
-Emma (not Emma Weasley... hee hee hee)
Author's Response: WOW! Thanks! (And it is very cool that your name is Emma... I can see why you rooted for her! ^_^ I\'ve always loved that name.)
I\'m a bit surprised by how many people didn\'t want Emma champion as well... you\'re the first one who seems happy about it. Now, it might be because Jordan\'s so upset about it (I didn\'t count on the fact that most readers tend to sympathise with the emo nerds... Jordan is actually my favourite of the bunch)
Emma and Haley are whack. ^_^ Emma has hated Tyrone since somewhere around 2nd-3rd year, when Tyrone\'s hormones started doing what they generally do in a boy around his age, namely GO NUTS.
Emma is a good-looking girl, and like most good-looking girls (girls in general, really), she can\'t stand boys who treat her like a piece of meat. She never thought there was more to Tyrone than an arrogant pretty boy with just one thing on his mind... and then she got to know him better and started to like him more.
There are twelve chapters in this story and seventeen in the next one.
FINALLY!!!! It's up after like two weeks! That's waaaaaaaaaaay to long to wait for an update.
I'm glad that Arden and Ted are friends again. They're conversation was cool and I really hope that Arden gets some other friends. It must be so lonesome without any. The werewolf talk thing was cool too. I feel bad for Arden... she likes Ted and Ted is going out with Ivy. Poor girl... but I love Ted/Ivy.
You know what I love more than Ted/Ivy??? EMMA/TYRONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG... IT'S SOOOO PERFECT AND CUTE AND AWKWARD!!!!!!!! I really loved the second task. There was lots of Tyrone/Emmaness and for a second I thought that they were going to get together, but then I realized that you wouldn't have them get together right after Ted and Ivy did.
“What was Icarus Higgenbottom’s major contribution to the school?” (Jordan)
“Er… having the stupidest name of anyone ever?” Emma replied.
HA HA HA!!!!!! That is so the kind of thing that I would say. I love how Emma didn't really seem to care about Higgenbottom and then he has something to do with the second task. The whole entire second task was very well done, very interesting, and creative. Hee hee hee... a portrait that calls everyone Mavis? Very cool... It must be so annoying to constantly be called "Mavis". It is kind of a weird name.
It was very unexpected when Emma went into the classroom and Tyrone was there instead of Haley. Emma was so concerned about Tyroonie. She really, really, really, reeeeeeeeally likes him. I mean, she would ne concerned for other people too, but you can just tell how much she really cares about him.
They didn’t let go of each other’s hands until they reached the Great Hall.
You can not imagine how squee-ish I went when I read this. awwwwwww....... Emma/Tyrone rocks!!!!!!!!!!
Poor Tyroonie... he was just trying to comfort Emma and she gets all meanish towards him. It was still cute.
I also feel bad for Jordan. Haley actually did better than him in Potions. Amazing! Jordan is too smart though... he never got anything less than 100?
Overall, I absolutely loved this chapter and I really can't wait until the next one!!!!!!!!!!
P.S. I would like to add one more thing: YAY EMMA/TYRONE!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!! YAY!!!!!!!
^_^ That was weird...
Author's Response: WOW! Thanks for this nice, long, exclamation-point-full review! I personally like Emma/Tyrone better than Ivy/Ted. Shhh, don\'t tell!
Have you ever noticed that the one thing you don\'t study is always the one thing that\'s very important on the final exam? it\'s like Murphy\'s sixth law or something!
Yeah, I always end up feeling sympathetic for Tyrone. I always take his side on everything, possibly because I am enchanted with his charm and good looks.
Did I really say Jordan never got anything less than a 100? 0_0 I\'m sorry, I don\'t remember writing that. Just assume I meant he never got anything less than an O, because no one ever gets all 100\'s, even Jordan.
Why is the next chapter taking so long to be validated???? I'm gunna go crazy here. And its not very pretty. I tend to, um, make really loud noises and run around the house acting very strange.
Ohemsqueee... the other night I had a very, very strange dream. So, in the dream I was watching American Idol and Jordan and Haley were on it! Except, Haley got voted off. Then all of the sudden , it was the next weeks show and it was Jordan's turn and he sang 'Since U Been Gone' by Kelly Clarkson. He was decent, but I woke up shortly after that so I don't know what happened. It was very... interesting. Lol.
I hope the next chapter is validated soooooooon! I can't wait much longer!!!!!
Author's Response: Oh, I don\'t know why it\'s taking so long... I\'m actually going slightly mad. If you think you\'re going bonkers, you should see me! I\'m so glad they\'re hiring new mods soon, because the mods have an insane workload, and they\'re sooo busy. Okay, that\'s a really, really cool dream, even though it\'s sad that Haley got voted off. And I think the idea of Jordan singing any song with improper spelling is hysterical.
\r\nI actually had a dream two nights ago where two of my best friends were talking to Tyrone over video phone and being extremely hyper and flirtatious and he seemed very obviously weirded out but was too polite to say anything. It was mighty odd.
Hip, hip, HOORAY!!!!!! This chappie is finally validated! It took waaaaaaaaaay too long! Anyways, it was awesome! I totally loved it and it has to be one of my favorite chapters!
What. Does. Jordan. Want. To. Be??? I have a weird feeling that he doesn’t want to do any of the jobs that Harry mentioned. I don’t know why, but I get that feeling. ^_^
Hehehe… Giorgi is awesome! I love her e-mails and I can’t wait until we actually get to see (or read about) her in person! The punctuation in her e-mails is suspiciously like mine in these reviews. Her musical sounds rather like my school’s. A bunch of people who made it really CAN’T sing! And then people who actually CAN sing didn’t make it.
AHHHH!!!! I want to know who Lee is! I thought that we would find out in this chapter, but no. Hopefully us loyal readers will find out soon. Perhaps…
Okay, Haley commenting was super awesome-possum! It was sooooo funny. Poor Jordan, though. He must have been wicked embarrassed! *hugs Jordan*
Awwww…Emma didn’t win. Well, I mean she sort of did but that’s because everyone won so won but didn’t really win. If you understand what I just typed… Those mean people, rigging the tournament. Why would they do that? *smacks them*
Ha ha… Haley and Jordan have very interesting arguments. And I really hope that Haley does get a better vocabulary than Jordan because of Lee. That would be very interesting.
OoOOooOOOoooooooOOooo… Ivy’s an animagus! That’s so cool. And I love Artic foxes! They are so, totally, adorable.
Oh my gosh! Apple is such a meanie-head. He shouldn’t do mean stuff to poor, innocent muggles. What’s he going to do???? Why did you have to leave us at a cliffhanger???? Ahhhh… suspense…!
Yup. I’m kind of hyper right now. Anyways, I can’t wait until the next chapter! Wait, the que is closed????!!!!????? NO!!!! Now I’m going to have to wait forever to read the next chapter… :( This is very sad. And you left it at a cliffhanger, so it’s even sadder. *hugs Tyrone for comfort* Hehe… Tyrone is awesome!
Speaking of Tyrone, there really wasn’t any Tyrone/Emmaness in this chappie. Wah…. Maybe in the next one?
So…. I hope that the next chapter can be submitted soon and I absolutely LOVE these stories!
Author's Response: It did take so long! But I\'m very glad that it is up, myesss! Anyway, I think that musical thing applies to every school everywhere. I mean, I got into the school musical, and I\'m pretty bad. (I\'m a Pickalittle Lady in \"The Music Man\")
You find out about Lee in the last chapter. HAHAHAHAHA! You also find out more about why the tournament was rigged.
It would be soooo funny if Haley\'s vocab was better than Jordan... not quite, though, although it certainly is better.
There wasn\'t any REAL Tyrone/Emma... but he did whistle when she \"won\" even though they weren\'t talking to each other, and after looking at Tyrone and then looking at Ivy and Ted kinda cuddling, Emma wished she had such a readily available form of comfort.
Yahooooo! It was validated. And I have to tell you that I love the name of this chapter. Although I love anything Emma/Tyrone related, so that might explain it. Hehe.
Poor Ivy. Carrying both Ted and Arden doesn't sound very fun. Ivy's such a nice little girl/fox.
I have decided that I like Vladislav. He is quite cool and says some weird but intelligent things. At least I think. I don't remember.
Jordan raised his eyebrows, no longer fake, orange, and fuzzy. “Run.”
^^ That made me laugh for some strange, unknown reason. But, its an extremely illogical and un-Jordy sounding plan that I laughed until I actually read what the actual plan was. Then I didn't laugh.
What's Telemency? I know that Jordan said it didn't exist but is it a real thing or did you just make it up?
Wow. Jordan is so weird. He falls on a pointy stick and gets all injured and stuff and all he says is "That hurt... a lot." I love Jordan, but he should realize that its okay to scream "ARRRGGGGHHHHHH!!!!! OWIE-KAPOWIE!!!!" once in a while instead of sounding all sophisticated and stuff. Jordan, Jordan, Jordan, when will you learn. Wow. I've officially gone out of my mind. I'm now talking to your characters who obviously can't hear me because they don't exist in real life. Or do they...
Marina cut her hair! Cool. I've always wanted to know what I look like with short-ish hair, but I don't want to cut it in case I hate it. I mean, my hair isn't exactly long but its not short. Whatever. That doesn't really matter at all.
Oh no! Arden lost her ribbon. Poor girl. She seemed so upset about it.
“We’re too late,” he muttered in a flat, emotionless tone as pigs flew overhead, courtesy of Apple. “There’s nothing we can do.”
^^Ohmigosh, I just realized that that's where the flying pigs from the chapter title came from. I didn't catch that on the first read. Oopsies.
I love Haley's spell. Everyone was so impressed and even Jordaaaay didn't know it. Hehe. That was quite cool. *high-fives you*
Awww, Jordan's trying to protect Giorgi. He so likes her. Even if he won't admit it. And I think that there is so much Jordan/Giorgi shipping because we all love Jordan and Jordan/Giorgi is so darn cute!
I loved Tyroonie's little speech to Emma about not giving up and how she realized that he had matured and how much she had hurt his feelings and then how she got his middle name wrong. I gigglesnorted. And then they race each other to go get Apple. It was cute. Emma has a crush on him. And he has a crush on her. *sigh* They're so perfect.
“I DID IT!” Emma yelled, and impulsively ran toward Tyrone and threw her arms tightly around him. “And it’s thanks to you for being so annoying and pushing me,” she whispered in his ear.
Tyrone stood there, looking rather stunned at the events that had just unfolded, then returned the favour by hugging her back. Marina and Giorgi giggled.
“Aww! How sweet! I could just vomit!” came a voice from behind them.
This has to be my favorite part! I love you for that! Well, in an e-friendly way. Emma/Tyrone is definately my OTP for this story. I just realized that, for some reason, I ship couple in this story more than any other story in the world. Even the actual HP series. I'm such a weirdo.
Yeah, Tyrone, sure you guys were rehersing for a play. That was quite funny and I'm sure that both of them were actually rather happy to be hugging one another. Hehe.
Dad is so cool, thought Jordan.
Yay Jordan! I never thought that he would think that, but he did. Congrats, man!
Whoa. I was really surprised by what Giorgi said. I didn't expect her to be making things up about her friends. She seems so likeable, I don't know why she wouldn't have friends at school. Maybe its the crazy hair. Possibly. Or people are just stupid.
You have lots of friends, you’re smart, you’re freakishly talented, you’re even kind of cute —don’t get any ideas here—and I’m just the weird new girl, and nobody wants to make friends with the weird new girl.
Don't get any ideas... *giggles* I'm a hopeless Jordan/Giorgi shipper. They're rather adorable. Hehe. And I'm very, very, VEEERRRYY glad that Giorgi didn't get her memory wiped. That would be bad.
The whole 7-11 ‘Yeehaw! I can shmell dem Shlurpees burnin’!’ story was quite interesting. And its even weirder that it actually happened. Hehe. Niiice.
Anyways, great job. I really did enjoy this chapter and can't wait for the next one!
P.S. I think that this is the longest review that I've ever written. ^_^
Author's Response: THIS IS VERY LOOONG! AND I LURVES IT! I\'m kinda glad that you liked Vlad, because I have a bit of a soft spot for him, but he\'s such a minor, understated character. Now, Jordan\'s little \"That hurt... a lot...\" to me is kind of a whimper, like he\'s struggling to keep his voice steady and it\'s still shaking a little. I don\'t know if I did a very good job of conveying that, but yeah, he totally wouldn\'t just go, \"Uh, yeppers, that hurt\" and just go about his business like a man of steelor something.
\r\nOkay... I\'m very impressed you noticed Telemency, because you\'re the first reviewer to do so. TELEMENCY WILL BE AN EXTREMELY, EXTREMELY, EXTREMELY BIG PLOT POINT IN THE NEXT BOOK, AND IT\'S AN UTTER MYSTERY TO EVERYONE EXCEPT JORDAN. Yep.
\r\nThere were toooo many scenes in this chapter that I madly enjoyed writing. And I think my favourite is having the characters interact with each other, like the Emma \'n\' Tyrone dynamic, or the Jordan \'n\' Giorgi dynamic... I don\'t know.
\r\nThe reason why Giorgi doesn\'t have any real friends is that she moves all the time, and most of the real friendships are already formed. There are people who are nice-ish to her, but they don\'t really want to be buddies. Also, her clothes and her rather excitable mannerisms can tend to put people off. Give her a chance, though, I\'m sure the school will warm up to her.
Summary: Nominated for the 2008 Quicksilver Quill Award for Best Post-Hogwarts Story
When Albus, Rose, and Scorpius are put on the train to their first year at Hogwarts, their parents have simple hopes for them. Namely to have the normal, boring school years they never got to experience themselves. But sometimes, we ask too much of our children.
When the school becomes plagued by invasions of wild beasts, three different students from three different houses follow in the footsteps of the generation before them, but strive to achive the one thing none of their predesesors ever could: DON'T GET CAUGHT!
Hey!!! I was bored so I decided to look for a fic to read and this one caught my eye. And let me tell you, it's really good so far. I really like how you characterize the characters. Somehow, they just seem so real.
Scorpius... very interesting. I have always liked Scorpius ever since DH's epilouge (no idea why) and I really like who you wrote him. It seems like he has the potential to go either way. You know, good or bad. I personally hope that he's good, but I never know.
Overall, very good chapter. I'm very curious to see what happens next. As a matter of fact, I headed off to read the next chapter right now!
Author's Response: Well, I glad you like it so much. And I\'ll let you know that Scorpius is very excited to have his first groupie!
