I'm here! I took longer than I wanted to, but alas! I've got my coffee and I'm ready to leave you a review!

May I just add, before I forget, that I love that you're coming back and requesting for different stories! I love seeing people come back and I especially look forward to them! Thank you!

I love love love love love Oliver/OC so I was absolutely stoked. I was a little disappointed there wasn't immediate romance (I'm a bit impatient) but that does mean you're taking a good moment to set up the story! This was a really good base for I'm sure will be a humorous, lovely story!

I loved in particular the relationship Edie has with both Seamus and Dean! Seamus is downright HILARIOUS and Dean is so...soft? I would never have seen him being an art student, but it fits him perfectly! I'm hoping your plot includes a bit of a happy ending for Seamus--is it silly that I feel for his character the most?

Oh, Justin. What do I say about that cotton-headed-ninny-muggins?! (Elf reference! I'm sorry, I'm in the holiday spirit) He sounds like a wuss to me, but thats probably because i don't go for guys that...feminine I guess? He's very girly and emotional and that stuff tends to shoo me away but you've made it very easy to be annoyed with him.

To be perfectly honest, Lisa annoys me too. I feel like she just ditched Edie for the cotton-headed-ninny-muggins. What friend does that? of course I understand a relationship tends to take time away from a friendship, but she just ditched Edie completely!

Ultimately, this was an excellent set up chapter! I'm looking forward to more!

Author's Response: Hello hello! :)

I was really worried about Oliver not being in the first chapter right away and that driving people off. While romance is certainly a huge part of this story, I want to focus on the idea of "I'm still a human being without a man" and build on Edie is growing as a person. There is going to be puh-LENTY of fluff coming, don't worry. But I want to comment on a post-graduate's role in the world more than anything. Hopefully people won't give up on me XD

Oh, Seamus and Dean. How I love them. And the books actually mention Dean being artistic several times, so I really took that and ran with it!

Yeah, Elf reference!! And yes, I pretty much made Justin the antithesis of what I look for in a guy. But Lisa's sweet and nurturing (she's a healer, for Merlin's sake!) and so she really connects with somebody like that. Though I'll never understand why ;)

I think that I wanted Lisa to embody another aspect that I dislike in relationships, which is completely abandoning the rest of your social life the second a boy walks in. That's another bit of the underlying commentary on contemporary young-ish romantic lives for you ;) To be fair, though, Lisa is now a Healer at St. Mungo's which doesn't allow for the kind of lifestyle that Edie is leading; plus her life is headed in a completely different direction. Planning a wedding is a big job, as I'm seeing with my own friends. And I'm sure that she finds going to pubs and being hit on all night rather irritating, now that she knows she wants to spend the rest of her life with Justin. It's just a sad truth that Lisa is moving on with her life in areas where Edie can't just yet :(
