Oh Merlin I think this is my favourite of your stories. I've never come across a Frank-Alice fiction this good, in fact they usually turn up in James-Lily stories as the also ran couple or they get unidimensional sweet oneshots of their own but to actually give them a series with so much of tension and awkwardness...really really good. All you guys (You, Caroline) take ages to update, update this one soon, please?
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the review and the compliment! I don't think I've seen many Frank/Alice stories out there either. Most tend to be after they were attacked, and those are all sad. I've just updated and apologize but the holidays did interrupt things a bit. But it won't be months, no worries. I like to work ahead and keep things going. I hope you enjoy the rest, thanks again! ~Gina :)
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing :)
Cute. Very aww-moment there.
Author's Response: Thank you. -N-
"So," he began awkwardly, "what do we do now?
Er...call for Kreacher? Which is what Harry should have done the first time, but then we won't have the story right?
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! That... that is a very good point. Haha, I feel a little rewrite is on the cards. Thank you for pointing that out :)
Author's Response: Thank you, I'm so glad! I appreciate the review! ~Gina :)
This was cute and fun.
Author's Response: Hahahhah - yes, I was trying to think how someone angry and hearing that strange name for the first time would say it, and Nympa Tongs was the result! Thanks for the review. ~Carole~
Someone slap that waiter for me.
Ginny is evil, isn't she? Too bad I was rooting for Harry.
Author's Response: He crtainly desrved a slap.
Evil? Cunning and mischievous, certainly, wicked, probably. :-D-N-
Sweet. Ron's shift of moods is really well done.
Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you approve of Ron's moods. :)
What happened between Flint and Charity?
Author's Response: Hushhhhh, no spoilers! All will be revealed in the next chapter ... well ... it will become a little clearer. :) Thanks for the review. :) ~Carole~
"“They’re skilful. Good eye to hand coordination, but a bit boring, really, and went on all afternoon.”" Oliver should watch some T20 cricket. It's all the rage now and doesn't go on for days. :D
Moving on...oh where do i even start? Absolutely brilliant chapter with so many brilliant lines...
"“I think what Septima is going to tell you, Charity,” Remus said as he pulled up a chair, “is that I used to know Black. We were at school together, as was Septima.”" What an entry, Prof.Lupin, cool and casual and matter-of-fact forever. And Charity complaining about having to teach the Gryffindor team who can't sit still.
Oliver recovered from his team’s defeat faster than she’d thought possible. Unlike last year, there was no repeat of the fury that had caused such havoc; he’d even turned up on time to her lessons, much to everyone’s amusement.
“I might need a fall back option,” he retorted when Dorinda mocked him. “Or I could fail my NEWTS this year and come back to Hogwarts like your ex.”
She smiled acidly. “Keep failing, and by the age of fifty, you might just win the Cup, Wood!”
The little detail of Harry being delighted to see Remus, Remus talking about James...this was 3rd year, right? I wish I could see a bit of Hermione Granger but then I understand the focus is not on her year.
Great great last part., especially the last couple of sentences.
Author's Response: Yes, I couldn;t really get Hermione into the story, but id have plans for her originally because I imagine her being quite annoying and correcting everything Charity tells them - ha ha. Damn, I should have included her!
hahahahah - yeah, Oliver was probably watching an interminable Test Match and should have watched a one day international. I think he'd quite like football, but be frustrated at the lack of pace in cricket.
Thank you for reviewing. ~Carole~
The opening chapter of Deathly Hallows horrified me, but I didn't cry for Charity then. Now I'm crying. And for Oliver too.
Author's Response: I keep crying over Charity because of her really horrible death, so I've written her some stories where she has a bit of happiness. Now I want to save her. :( Thank you so much for all your reviews. ~Carole~
“I pity you next week,” Septima said.
“Don’t you teach the Weasleys? They’re going to be as high as Peeves after that win.”
Involuntarily, Charity shuddered. She remembered the highs only too well.
And the crashes. ....
The Weasley twins are awesome, even when they don't actually appear in a scene.
Good chapter, the proverb now makes sense, Dorinda evokes a bit more sympathy when i hated her in the last chapter, Oliver gets more interesting day by day...opening his birthday presents, really? I would love to see someone use that excuse on Mcgonagall. Preferably from a safe distance.
P.S: Er, remember one time you began writing this great story called "The Lions of Gryffindor" and abandoned it just when the suspense was at peak? I haven't forgotten it yet.
Author's Response: *hides from Lions reference but will try and get around to it for the lovely Ruchira*
Thank you so much for the review and I'm glad you're enjoying the story. ha ha - yeah, Oliver can get away with a lot, mainly because the lateness thing has become a bit of a motif with him. (And he's Oliver Wood - sigh) ~Carole~
The best Oliver Wood characterization I've ever read.
Author's Response: Thank you! ~Carole~
No, I refuse to accept this. Harry is NOT going to be assassinated by Gregory Goyle of all people. *sobs*
Author's Response: Wouldn't that be awful? But that's the setup here, sorry! Thanks for reading and reviewing, I hope you read more in spite of what's happened! ~Gina :)
Interesting, very interesting, but is that a ghost or is it entirely her own imagination?
Author's Response: Sirius is whatever you take him to be in this story, whether ghost or hallucination. I'm glad you enjoyed the fic, and thanks for R-&-R-ing!
Sweet. But I think they know Ron a little too after the war?
Author's Response: Thanks, yes, they do. -N-
Interesting. Very well-written too. I like your version of Astoria. A rebel? Nice.
Author's Response: Thanks for reading and reviewing! I'm glad you like her. I've not read a lot of fanfic Astorias. I went with someone who would make her own mind up about Draco, rather than go by his past or what she had heard from others. Anyway, thanks for reading!
This was funny and sweet and adorable and sad at the same time. The last sentence totally killed me ( I picked the DH2 hint).
Author's Response: Thanks! Glad you liked it.
Trust George to pull that stunt.
Author's Response: Thanks. He wasn't very subtle. -N-
Sweet. Good to know Cormac grew up.
Author's Response: Thank you for the review! Yes, Cormic did grow up, and it was mostly due to Eloise. :)
