I live in the US of A and I'm proud to be an American, but I would love to travel all over Europe; Scotland, Ireland, Wales, England, France, Switzerland, Italy, Romania, Rome, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Portugal, and Spain are my top places to visit.
I like to read, write, draw, and play video games in my spare time.
Also, I am a sarcastic person and I value humor and responsibility above all else.
I guess the main thing about me is that I tend to be in almost every gray area you can imagine. I'm insanely normal I suppose. The world is mostly black and white, but I swear I'm in the gray area in between. In between popular and a nerd, in between the good people and the bad, in between darkness and light...
I consider life one huge game, my favorite thing to do is just sit back and plot my strategy to win this game, because I plan on winning.
this is so well written that I hate to hate it. Actually, I don't hate it, I just think it's so sad. Poor Ginny...
But on a happier note, I think this was very well done. I thank you for writing it :)
beautiful, I loved this. I love how you made just the right amount of angst, romance, and real life worries. The thing I appreciated most though, was that it wasn't rushed. You don't know how many fanfics I've read where the author rushes the story when the story doesn't want to be rushed and ruins everything. But this was perfectly timed, I just fell in love with it. I haven't had my story approved yet (because I just submitted it) but I do write, in fact writing is a big part of my life. And for my experience with writing I understand that stories sort of grow on their own. A good story is sort of like a plant- you plant the flower, you give it fertilizer, you water it, and put it in the right amount of sun, but in all truth, it's the plant itself that grows, you're only helping it. It's the same with writing. You create the characters and the scenery and you set all the vague details... and then you let your story grow.
I don't know your writing style, but whatever you do it's brilliant. You obviously put time and effort into your work and that's awesome.
I do have a few things I didn't entirely like (nothing's perfect I guess). While the story itself wasn't rushed, I find it a tad unrealistic that James and Lily would simply start dating overnight. However, I have always believed that in her heart of hearts, Lily has always loved James so maybe one night would be enough to make her realize just how much of a man the boyish James Potter can be. So that isn't really a problem. Although in some ways I think Lily was OOC, I really think you did a good job.
So there's my terribly long review- I hope you keep writing and I hope you always write like this :)
Author's Response: Thanks so much for the amazing review! I'm so glad you enjoyed this story. What's funny is that when I first wrote it I was worried it was just too much talking and not enough action. I'm glad you appreciated the pace. I loved writing this piece, because I really enjoy writing dialogue, for one. And it was just one of those conversations I could picture so clearly. As for James and Lily starting to date overnight--well, I think you said it yourself when you pointed out that perhaps that one night is what it took for her to realize that James was worth giving a try. I'm sure there were hints before this, too. ;) As for Lily being a bit OOC, I tend to think that for characters we don't know much about, if you support your own characterization within the story, it will work. Which is why I like writing James and Lily so much - there is wiggle room for adding little twists here and there. ;) Thanks again for the review - no worries as I'm still writing and have no lack of ideas for stopping! ~Gina :)
my favorite line in this entire story is 'Sirius came storming through the house, shouting about "my fucking demented cousin, Batty Bella McBatshit!"'
Oh Sirius, how I love you.
well written, I love it!
Author's Response: Thanks so much! I'm glad you liked that part in particular :)
