Arthur Weasley has an obsession. He can’t keep it off his mind. It tinges every thought in his head and consumes his dreams. He can’t concentrate on anything else. His friends, the ones who haven’t given him up as a bad job, tell him he’s crazy and he knows they’re probably right. But that’s not even the worst part. Do you know what the worst part is?
She’s completely oblivious.
…And you thought it was Muggle Studies he was obsessed with.
Chapter 6: Quidditch and Kids is up!
It's a lovely story and I'm very curious to know the rest. The characters are well writen, the whole thing is canon, it's making me smile and feel with Arthur! Great job so far! Keep it up.
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you are enjoying it!
In her seventh year, Katie Bell knew what it was like to fear death. A year later, she learnt what it was like to see it in front of her. Nothing she had ever experienced had prepared her to deal with the aftermath of that. And then he came.
Caught in a whirlwind of Quidditch, heartbreak, and a rivalry, Katie struggled with her jumbled mess of feelings, one of which she hadn't expected but was growing certain that she could never live without.
Oh my freaking Salazar! This story WON TWO 2011 Quicksilver Quill Awards: Best Post-Hogwarts Story and Best Non-Canon Romance Story. *flail*
This (late) update was brought to you by the (belated) birthday of the ever-lovely Hannah / h_vic. She is a star and an excellent friend!
This is not really a review 'cause I wouldn't know how to write one. But it's a "thank you" note. I'd like to thank you for writing this story! It's just the kind of fiction I was looking for and I read it all at once. I couldn't put it down. Every chapter so far had a great mix of action, even though that action could have been spread over a longer period of time. I hope the drama slows down and Kate finds herself.
Again: thank you!
Keep it up!
Wow, thank you! I'm glad I could write something that meets a certain demand, although I do think there is far too little Katie/Oliver out there. As for the drama, I just think of it as this: Katie is not the battle-hardened warrior who can acknowledge the atrocity and let it go as she moves on. Things just pile up on her, and then she jumps into a serious relationship far too quickly and causes no shortage of problems for herself. It's not completely her fault, as that reporter who skewered her in the magazine was a complete tool, but this is part of the process of rebuilding her life, which is to beta the bad stuff before it beats her. So far, not so good, but nobody really is capable of ploughing through this stuff and coming out of it farting sunshine and rainbows. :/
Anyway, end tangent. I'm glad you like the story, and I'm almost half done with the next chapter,so be on the look out, and Katie is looking for herself right now. I hope she can find the signs.
