Aww that was such a nice conversation. Cassie and James's personalities complimented each other in this chapter, I love seeing them interact :)
I'm really excited to see what's going to happen!Author's Response: Really glad you enjoyed it, Lily16! I really enjoyed writing this conversation and having them finally work each other out a little. Thanks for reviewing! Report Review
Oh my god. Wow. I don't even know what to say!
That was really perfect. Like it couldn't possibly have been better. It doesn't sound ideal, losing your virginity while drunk and emotional to your enemy, but for Aggy and Potter it really was perfect. I was so happy that they were actually talking and getting to know each other then THAT happened! I can't believe you can still surprise us after 40+ chapters, that takes a lot of skill.
Haha I don't think I can even wrap my head around everything yet. But it was all amazing, trust me. I'm so glad there's a reason for all that Vespertine and Evilyn drama. I think Cooper's family also has ties with Vespertine.
Thanks so much for updating so quickly! It was the best surprise after a long week of school. Report Review
Wow I did not see that coming at all. I love Aggy's life gets so dramatic and potentially angsty but her voice stays light and she keeps the one liners coming. You would think the humor wouldn't work in a story like her's but, surprisingly, it does. Good job :)
Anyway, I really loved seeing Aggy's dad and Debbie. Hehe and I was so proud of how manipulative Aggy was. They all make a pretty nice family considering everything.
And at the end Potter was so freaking endearing! They can't keep ignoring their feelings for long :D Report Review
This chapter was amazing and by now I'm pretty sure that Aggy is one of my most favorite literary characters ever. Right up there with Harry Potter himself :)
But she's planning on leaving? Where will she even go? I'm a little worried that this is all a trap to get her away from the safety of Hogwarts because its suspicious that Nott would just leave something like that lying on his desk. But I hoping Potter and the rest of her friends can either go with her or help her in some way. They can tell the aurors right?
If only the current headmaster was more like Dumbledore though. Why would she let Nott keep the sword out of all people? She's an idiot. And I can see why someone like her would expel Freddy.
But it's so cute how even with all this going on, Aggy and Potter still get distracted by their own relationship. I loved the last scene :) And now that even Aidan sees how perfect they are for each other, it's only a matter of time before they have to see it too right? Haha I can't wait for that day
Before I end this review though, Congratulations on the Dobby! You really deserve it. And don't feel pressured to update the next chapter, you should enjoy college as much as you can :D Report Review
Wow that was a lot to process. I can't believe Fred actually left! I still expect him to pop back in next chapter and go back to his normal self. I guess that's why Adian, Dom, and Evelyn are so messed up right now. Especially Evelyn, poor girl. I sort of saw this coming but she must have serious problems if she thinks going back to Cooper is a good idea. She needs a hug.
I like that Aggy and Potter are so mature in the face of all this drama though. I was sure they would explode a few times, but they kept it together :)
...Expect then they had to go and break up. Ouch. But I have to admit, even their break up was pretty mature; it reminded me a lot of Harry and Ginny from book 6. Haha it's like James is dramatically reliving his dad's romance. I swear his inner awkward Harry showed a few times when his composure slipped around Aggy. He's a real, slightly awkward teenage boy in my eyes now which is really nice. Of course Aggy would bring out that side in him, since they are meant to be and all. I hope they don't stay apart for too long.
Thanks for updating and I hope college is going well for you! Report Review
Can I just say that you are an amazing writer. Honestly, I hope you write a book one day because you have more natural talent than at least 80% of the real life authors out there.
I mean, there are A LOT of really great authors out there but there's something about your writing that seems so effortless and smooth that it draws readers in like a really powerful vacuum (lol weird analogy, sorry). You make very impactful and heavy lines just glide of the page and that makes reading your work very enjoyable.
If you ever do write a book though, you should find some way to let us all know :) Report Review
Now I'm really worried because expulsion seems like way too harsh of a punishment for the prank so what if Vespertine isn't a reasonable person? Expulsion means they snap your wand right? Sirius didn't even get expelled for trying to kill Snape back in the day. Poor Freddy.
But I liked seeing more of Aidan in this chapter. Haha and for some reason I found it hilarious when he says he's sick of all the lies in the group. I'm glad they realize that their lives are a little more dramatic than normal.
And as always, I love Aggy and James's relationship. It was so cute when he woke up from the punch! And it's amazing how you're making their relationship progress so believably and subtlety :)
Does literally all of Hogwarts know about them by now? Report Review
Thank you for making me look crazier than usual because I just spent the last half hour laughing alone at my computer screen. This is actually better than a tv show, you have a gift.
About that cliffy though...will Cooper's psychotic side finally be revealed to authorities? I hope so. And I hope Evelyn's relationship Freddy and the rest doesn't suffer too much, I really love having her as part of the gang. She fits right in and it's nice seeing all of them spend a carefree day destroying a green house together. I can just picture that scene in a teen sitcom with happy music, slow motion, and friendships being cultivated.
Also, Potter and Aggy! AHHH I always freak out about them but I can't help it. They were flirting and they were happy together. He was laughing and is it just me, or has Aggy been getting a little bolder and more adventurous recently? (...In normal teen stuff, not just life or death situations) Obviously, this means they are perfect for each other. Report Review
I'm glad this story is back :) Report Review
I never get tired of this story :)
Really, there's not one thing that I don't like about it. Report Review
Omg Potter and Aggy :D After this chapter, I soo see them as a couple. I mean, she already has him climbing out of windows in his own house. Can you imagine the shenanigans (haha sorry) they would get up to as a real couple? I know they'll probably start fighting about something again soon, but this chapter looks like real progress! Plus, Potter smiling into the kiss was adorable.
And let me just say, Aggy and Dom are perfect for each other. I would never imagine them even liking each other if they weren't already such great friends. It's really nice the way they always sort of subtly support each other no matter what. But I'm worried about what Potter mentioned about Dom's thinness a few chapters ago...I really hope it's not an eating disorder or something. And I hope this Xander guy doesn't turn out to be a jerk who makes everything worse. Still looking forward to Aggy giving him the evil eye though! :) Report Review
I'm so glad you're back! Your chapters are always worth the wait :)
I'm really excited for Alexa's relationship with Saundra to develop; I think they have the potential to be really great and supportive sisters to one another. Just the thought of them becoming close melts my ice cold heart.
Also, James and Alexa must fall in love! Report Review
Something about this chapter makes me very content. I think it's because Jaggy seems to have made a lot of progress in these last few chapters and I'm so proud of the way Aggy is facing the truth more and James is actually showing emotion (!). And I swear, I practically had a heart attack when he mentioned her sodding blue eyes and how she's always in his head. AHHH I don't even know what to say!
The whole thing after the Debbie incident just made me happier. You wrote that part amazingly and it's probably my favorite passage since the chapter where Adain wakes up. I really love it when James lets his guard down around Aggy and acts more like teenage boy than an enigma. It's probably moments like this that make me ship them so hard :) I hope Aggy doesn't read the kiss as him not caring because he obviously does. And how will James react to "I'd rather date a woolly mammoth?" Haha, oh Aggy.
I also really liked the Debbie bits of the chapter and how it brought up Aggy's family. There was a perfect mix of non-Potter drama, Potter drama, and humor in this chapter. I wish we saw more of Fred though, I can't get enough of him :) Report Review
It's so weird seeing friendships as fake as this...but still really fascinating. And even though she definitely has her flaws, I sort of like Jaycee. She has potential.
I was very disappointed when she didn't join Addison though. Report Review
I swear, I been wanting to read a story like this forever! Thanks so much for writing it and writing it well :)Author's Response: Thank you so much for reviewing! I'm glad you enjoyed! :D

YES! Aggy and James finally seem to be on equal footing :D Haha that makes me really happy. And I find it very interesting that even though Aggy acted very Slytherin-like and James acted very Gryffindor-like in this chapter, they still make a really good pair. Their personalities just click in a weird way. Ekkk I can't wait until they actually start dating each other!
Also! I love that James lost his composure so many times in this chapter. Well, not SO many times. But for him it's practically a record. I'm taking this as a very good sign, especially since he got so jealous of Ryan :D I wonder if he knows that Aggy used to have a huge crush on him.
Btw, when Aggy colored her hair brown, I was like "NO Aggy change it back!" But obviously she didn't hear me. I'm looking forward to everyone's reactions to it but I hope she doesn't keep it for too long. Aggy = Redhead and there's no way around that. Sigh. I get why she did it though and at least she didn't go blonde :) Report Review
Muhahaha I find it really funny how pathetic Potter's attempts at getting over the Jaggy situation are. Granted, he's living with her so it must be hard for him to put his plan into action but I bet he thinks about Aggy way more than he needs too. I just hope he doesn't do something stupid like hook up with a random girl at the concert and break Aggy's heart even more.
Speaking of Aggy though, I really really like her new mature thing. It's about time. And it saves her a lot of drama :D You kept her sense of humor perfectly intact as well so I think it's a really good balance right now. Also, I love that she's getting closer to Aidan now :) Report Review
Ahh you don't know how much I love this story! And I have a feeling that James has a crush on Stella :D Report Review
Are you rewriting the whole story? I'm really glad it's back :)Author's Response: Hi, thanks for reviewing!
Yes, I am rewriting the whole story. It wasn't going in the direction I intended, so hopefully it'll be back on track. Can't believe you actually still noticed it after so long! Thanks again. Report Review
I absolutely love this story and this chapter was amazing, but did you borrow that Hugo commenting joke from another story? I was reading "Once Defied" by pennyarrdelle just a second ago and in chapter 9 I saw this:
"...and I'm not sure why Slytherin's picked such a pixie as their Keeper--"
"Where"s Slytherin"s Seeker? Professor McGonagall needs a word with him."
"Not him, you!"
Don't get me wrong, I'm not accusing you or anything! Just curious. For all I know, you guys have the same sense of humor or this is a reference that I don't get.Author's Response: Thanks so much for the review! I am glad you like it!
To explain the quote; I think I read 'Once Defied' a while ago, and usually when I'm reading fanfiction and well anything really I write down quotes, character traits etc to give me inspiration and ideas. I changed my use of it a bit once you pointed it out, when I was looking through my mess of notes and found it I didn't know if it had been me writing it down or if I had found it haha. I credited the story and changed it a bit thanks so much for pointing it out! I really hate that I accidently used someone elses writing so I am so glad you pointed it out.
Thanks for the review!

I loved all the sappiness! This was another amazing chapter :)Author's Response: Thank you! I love the sappiness too :') Report Review
Wow, that ending was really touching. I love that you make her feelings for James so deep but it's also clear that Stella isn't completely blinded by love at all. At this point, I'm actually rooting for her to get over James.
This was an amazing chapter, I can't wait for the next one :) I hope we see more of Eve!Author's Response: Thank you! Stella's feelings are pretty intense, but I didn't want that to make her pathetic. She'll get over him eventually, but not in the way you'd expect ;)
Thanks for the review! xx Report Review
I really love it! The old version was good too, but this one is amazing :)Author's Response: thanks! i'm glad you think so. the old version just left me with nowhere to go.. not to mention it was horribly and hastily written. i hope more people like this version better, so thanks :) Report Review
You really are an amazing writer; this was completely flawless. Report Review
Ohh was Albus a little jealous of Henry? Or maybe he's just mad that he can be replaced that easily. Such a confusing boy. But he's definitely up to something with June's detention...I'd like to think he has a crush on her now or something, but that's probably not likely :( Either way, I;m really looking forward to it!
And I think I'm in the minority, but I find bossy Albus a little creepy, in a mini Voldy way. That's probably going to far but there's something eerie about the way everyone else was so powerless against him (especially poor Lucy). He's so power hungry, it's a surprise he's not in Slytherin.
And lastly, I have to say that the Qudditch match was one of the best I've ever read. Priscilla was priceless :D Report Review
