Oh Rebecca, how do you do it? Like, as you said, so muchhappened in this chapter, and yet it didn't seem overdone. Infact, it is one of the bestest chapters in this story, not only because of the wonderful way you've written it, but also because its given me perhaps the most important lesson in my lfe : its okay to lose sometimes. I'm actually this perfectionista, who doesn't take well to not winning. But this chapter honestly changed my opinion, so i'm thinking that i'll make that phrase my new favorite quote. Thanks for inspiring me!
Tash, you *gasp* rebelled?! God, I wonder what your mother's going to say. Though its high time she understood that she can'talways be a control freak.
The match was awesome, evn though they lost, because it taught such an inportant moral lesson to Tash, and also coz they lost to Hufflepuffs. It was unexpected, for the Puffs to be the best team, but god knows they need a boost in their status and self esteem.
And the James/Tash moments towards the end? My Merlin, I loved it. And silly Tash, didn't you realise that you're his friend? I mean, what kept you from knowing?
Favourite quote :“I’m proud of you, Tash,” James said, so softly it was barely a whisper. But I heard it. And there was something about the way he said it that made this whole day somehow… worth it. Even though we had lost.
I smiled to myself. Maybe winning really isn’t all that matters. Maybe losing can be just as important.
Favourite character : Molly. I know she's cynical and sarcastic, but there's something about her that reminds of one of my great friends, who recently left for another state. :'(
Favourite part: Molly and Griffin fighting. Honestly, they are so meant to be. And that's because all points of Griffin's argument are valid and true. ;)
Love you and this story to the Isles of the Blest and back,
Author's Response: Ahh stop it! You're making me blush with how sweet you are. Seriously. I'm grinning from ear to ear and my roommate definitely thinks I'm crazy. I'm so happy that this chapter inspired you, like literally made my day.
Hahh yes, Tash rebelled! And don't worry, next chapter we shall find out what her mum thinks of this all. And I will let you in on a secret: Her mum won't be happy.
And yes, Tash lost! But she learned a lesson, which is good, right? Hahah and yeah, I thought it'd be fun to make the Hufflepuffs the best team at the school, because I think they always get bad reps in other fanfics.
Glad you like the James/Tash moment! I had fun writing it :) And yeah, Tash is just very bad at being social so the whole friend concept is kind of foreign to her since she's not used to having any except Dom and her mum.
Glad you liked the quote! I had fun writing that. And yay! Molly's your fave character! She's mine too. I love writing her so, so much because of how blunt and sarcastic she is. And aw I'm so sorry your friend moved! Me and my bestie are going through withdrawal from each other because we both went off to college and so we've been texting/facetiming nonstop to try and make the difference not seem like so much. But we still miss each other like crazy.
Gryffin/Molly fighting times are always my fave to write, which is probably why I have so many scenes of them fighting. As for you thinking they're meant to be, I gotta say, they would not be happy if they heard you say that.
Love you so much for this review and sorry for how long it took me to respond!!!
