Review #1, by jess94Decoding the Tutshill Tornados: The One with the Family Wager

18th May 2013:
Good chapter

I do however want to praise you on the amazing yet very subtle character development you've given James over the course of the 2 stories. I thought to myself the other day that James hasn't changed that much (and he hasn't to an extent) but I read back through BTTQ and the difference between James in the beggining of that story and the James we see now is outstanding

Though James isn't coping all that well, he's doing a lot better than the James from BTTQ would have. James is now at least facing his problems head on whilst the old James would have got drunk, made a fort and hexed poor Wesley

I miss Wes actually, more than I thought he would. Can he pop up again soon?

So, anyway, yeah I feel like James is also a lot nicer now. Before he was kind of a loveable jerk who had the occasional nice moment but now he's a nice guy who can still be a bit of a jerk sometimes. He's really come a long way, matured (though he still has a long way to go) yet stayed the same dorky and clumsy guy underneath

Yes, sorry James, no matter how hard you try and hide it you are a massive dork underneath all of that male bravado. But it's okay, because you're hot. And if there's anything chicks love it's hot nerds. Embrace you inner dork boy!

On to Avery, I just love the relationship between her and James no matter what the hell is going on. Whether they're friends, a couple or not even talking the dynamic between them is always fantastic and very believable. Given I am a girl who at the age of 18 fell in love with her best friend of six years I can totally relate to all of this (bar the Quidditch and my dad's not a douche)

I really can't think what I'd do if I was Javery in this situation. James worked so hard to get to where he is now and nearly lost it all once before so I'd hate to see him loose it again. Also, he hides a lot of emotions and seems to repress them so I'd be concerned that one more bad thing could just tip him over the edge and then we'll have to see (read, whatever) him breakdown and cry

Which would be horrible yet amazing at the same time

Brilliant work here, you've convinced me that as much as this is a love story between James and Avery it is also James Potter's coming of age story (and I consider it canon to the main series)

Author's Response: I have to say, I'm pretty thrilled you pointed out the character development. I worked really hard to make it super subtle, but still there. James really has grown as a person throughout the story.

You are exactly right with how he would have reacted. I'm pretty proud of his maturing, even if he is a silly boy.

I'm hoping to pop Wesley up somewhere. It's hard with so many characters and a completely new plotline. But I'm hoping for the best.

James is doing his best to embrace his inner nerdling. I think he's doing well with it. Hopefully.

I really hoped you'd throw Quidditch into your experience, but we can't have everything, can we?

I love James and Avery. There is just something always drawing them together no matter what. I love that about them. So refreshing!

Thank you very much! I set out to make this a JP coming of age story with some romance on the side, since that is what forces him to grow up, but I love the parallels between the two. I really hope you enojy the rest of the story!!

Review #2, by jess94(shenanigans): (al) I don't want a girlfriend.

Love this story! I'm completely fascinated by Al as a character and what makes him tick. I can't wait until the part where he realizes he isn't gods gift and, hopefully, becomes a better person. There does seem to be traces of someone decent that has crept threw at various points

Review #4, by jess94Decoding the Tutshill Tornados: The One with the Honesty

18th April 2013:
Ah, the Javery feels!!

I love reading this story but it always makes me feel sad. Because I reach the end of a chapter and James still isn't real. Or my boyfriend. And Avery still isn't real. Or my best friend

Javery should be together so much. Avery keeps James grounded and calm so well and let's face it he does tend to get a little bit. mentally ill at times

Author's Response: Aw! That makes my heart hurt. I will put in a good word to james for you.

Mentally ill. HAHA. Seriously. That's the best way of describing it. Laughing so hard.

Thank you :) Enjoy the rest! (don't be too sad)

Review #5, by jess94Decoding the Tutshill Tornados: The One with the Threat

3rd February 2013:
Not gonna lie that story about Nathan made me tear up just a little

I love your James Potter - he's such a decent, kind and nice person compared to a lot of James II's in FanFiction who are complete A-holes

Oh, and I love Ali too but still shipping Javery all the way

Keep up the good work

Author's Response: You and me both. That was an unplanned moment, as have been a lot of things in BTQC and DTTT. I'm so happy you're liking James. He has a lot of complexes, but above all else he has a heart of gold.

Thank you!

Riley seems lovely, though I'm still not sure if he has another motive or not? Hope he doesn't he seems incredibly sweet

Well done

I didn't read the first version of this story so can't compare but I really like what I've read so far

Author's Response: YEAH! FIRST REVIEWER!! Honestly, you aren't missing out on anything because the other version was a bit "eh".
