Oh my goodness!! I've just started this, and I love it :) it's hilarious, sweet, adorable and totally, fabulously sassy. You are a wonderful writer! I hope you continue soon.Author's Response: Thank you so much c: hah, adorable does not tend to be on the list of adjectives for this fic - I think you're actually the first. It's going to be my main fic after I finish my other one, so updates will be more frequent later! Report Review
I LOVE your story! I read the whole 17 chapters in 2 days and omg so funny! I am so glad Albus and Clemence are finally together! And the mustard girl totally rocked.Author's Response: Thank you! c: Hehe, it's only about halfway into the crazy, so there's still a ways to go with Clambus~ Report Review
The imagery is so well written I can see it, and the tension and banter is fabulous. Keep up the great work!Author's Response: Thank you! c: Report Review
First of all, how can such a brilliant story even exist? It's perf. The characters are great, they're believable and on the whole, the story has a nice mix of genres to it as well.Author's Response: Thank you! c: I'm glad you like it. Report Review
This chapter is just...
I think this may be my favourite ever chapter from any fanfiction i have ever read. Possibly any story.
At first I was kind of shouting no at my laptop screen when Clemence said they should forget about it.I would nearly have thrown something, but i only had a laptop at hand and i would be crazy to break that.
But I was gearing up for a shouty review on how you were ruining the lives of your characters.
Then, I was just cracking up at the food fight scene. I loved how you made it so serious and warlike- that made it even funnier.
Marmite on cheeks
Comrades who have fallen at the hands of JAM
going down in a blaze of sugar
It's ALL HILARIOUS
Then when Clemence kissed Albus. I was not in shock exactly, more laughing with happiness.
And then full blown chortles and guffaws when the team Clemence bit started.
Your writing is the best, I LOVE LOVE LOVE this story and cannot wait until the next chapter is uploaded Author's Response: Aaah thank yous o much c: bahaha, I think my characters are very good at ruining their own lives; they don't need any help from me.
I love that I've been able to pull off some of the most outrageous ideas here. I allowed myself that when I began writing this - to let etc's stories become larger than life - and it's maybe not for everyone, but so so /fun/ for me. Plus, food is my natural habitat. The more food in my stories the better 8D

GREAT! can't wait for the next chapter!Author's Response: Thanks! :) Report Review
"Besides, when the well-being of this school hinges on my sexuality, I think there's a bigger problem to address!"
Scorpius is my new favorite.
But seriously I thought the sex scene was great in the last chapter. It was not too cheesy and it was also totally romantic. And I think you're right to include the pennyroyal considerations here. As much as we wish sex came without risks, it doesn't (not saying premarital sex is bad and that people shouldn't do it, just that minimizing the risks makes the whole experience so much better). Anyway loved everything about this chapter. Love that Clemence kissed Albus in front of the school. Hopefully this makes it more likely she'll let her guard down since she's already dealing w/ the public fall out of a relationship w/ him.Author's Response: HE SAID IT.
I consider myself lucky that I grew up well-educated about sex. The topic (and related stuff, like virginity) has never been a big deal for me like a lot of TV shows seem to make it, and I've always been comfortable with discussing it, and this chapter was one of the rare occasions I could bring up the worries that don't get discussed as much, like the whole paragraph where Clemence wonders where she might get the potion. Things like what Helen does are common, even though she knows how stupid she's being, and she's always wondering if one time is worth a month of worrying, or worse.
Glad you enjoyed the chapter! Lots of fun stuff coming up c: Report Review
HOLY SHIT. That chapter. That was the most genius and unexpected plot twist ever. Like fuck. oh my god. I had to read that like 4 times before I could believe what i read. Thanks for an amazing chapter.Author's Response: Glad you like c: Thanks for reading! Report Review
Jesus I'm crying rn bc this us literally the best story I've ever read. I love how you've written all the characters especially clemence and albus!! It's fantastic 10/10 would recommend! And I was wondering if you gave a tumblr account for this fic?Author's Response: Thank you so much! c: I haven't given a tumblr account for this fic, but I am considering it in the future. For the moment, you can look through the etc etc... tag on my tumblr. Report Review
I don't think I've reviewed this story before, but it's made such an impact that I simply must tell you how wonderful it is. The thing I love most about it as that it is not a stereotypical AlbusxOC fanfiction. Those always include an awkward, weird girl that SOMEHOW attracts the attention of cool, popular Albus, who is 95% of the time a player. Those stories always turn me off. Seriously. They're quite... irritating... and unoriginal.
But what you have written here is the most amazing AlbusxOC fanfiction ever, mainly because of Clemence. She is not awkward, stupid, or a tomboy, or any of those stereotypes you see in AlOC fics. She's sensible and smart and cold and I love her so much! It makes for a realistic and fun story. I also love her clever sarcasm. And I love that she's hard on the outside but slowly cracking to show her soft inside. :) Great character. One of my favorites in all time history. Oh yeah, and I love how she handled the "after morning" bit. I mean, what knucklehead just forgets about that and pretends it never happened? Ugh. Those girls deserve what they get, thank goodness they're not in the majority, or there'd be fifty billion teenage mothers. Sensible Clemence rules!
I also love Albus in this. He's so - the only word I can properly use here is - smexy, without being a player. That is all.
Anyway, Team Clemence all the way and I hope you update soon!
-AirStarShineAuthor's Response: Eee, that's such a huge compliment. I think there are a lot of great characters out there that can rock being awkward or a tomboy, but for a lot of them, that's all they are. They're awkward - that's it - and it's not very satisfying. Ice queen is another stereotype, to be fair, but I'd like to think Clemence is more than that, too. I've never been happy with how ~heartless cynics~ are the results of a bad childhood and they'd open up with love; nope, Clemence is quite happy with being selfish and snarky, thank you very much, and there are very few things she bothers to care about, like Dom and delicate balance of idiocy in the school.
There are not enough sensible morning afters, ever! If Clemence's experience has de-romanced steamy beach friskiness for even one reader out there, I saved someone from a bad case of knicker rash.

SO MUCH OF THIS OMG I JUST LOVE I LOVE IT SO MUCH
and she's like 'OMG NO I SCREWED ALBUS WAIT NO I SCREWED SCORPIUS WAIT NO IT WAS ALBUM OMG CRAPP'
and the end i don't even i cannot even i am speechless and dead and lost and i am crying omg this is just the best story ever
i cannot write right now and everything i am trying to write takes about three attempts
never stop writing
how many chapters of this are to go?
so amazing you are amazing this is perfect omgAuthor's Response: SUCCESS~ I hope she did not screw an album, that would be unfortunate. Attaching screws to an album would likely damage it.
I'm not sure how many chapters are left; at this point I've got a lot of subplots that I can expand and it's a matter of seeing how it'll all fit together. But probably more than 10 :)
Thanks! c: Report Review

Am I now the only one who ships Domkett? or Pickettique?
):Author's Response: Oh no, I'm sure there's some left! I still love the two, and they'll have more scenes later on. I can pretty much ship anything that moves 8D Report Review
It was a nice job you did with Clemence's character development. I loved it when she was so grumpy.
But the last part- I never expected it. I thought they would be extremely awkward for days and that the incident would harden Clemence's resolve of staying away from Albus, but yeah, I guess it's probably her way of showing she actually cares. And uh oh. Another team war in the making! God. I'm sort of getting exasperated with those. But if that's how that's how the story must progress, so be it.
When will you update Capers?
When will you update the NEXT chapter of etc.?
I know you're very busy and everything.. but will those two events occur before the end of this year? (I wish I was kidding)
I went through half the chapter like "Yeah, that's right. Put him in his place, you go, Clemence!" and the last bit I was like- :o. "Wha...?" I really cannot believe she kissed him in public.
Whoa.Author's Response: I thought of a few ways Clemence would handle the morning after, and I went against temptation to make her avoid Albus. At the end of the last chapter, I wanted her to be *aware* of what she was about to do and that it was her choice and not the alcohol, and she does not run from her own choices. Shakes things up a bit!
Clemence and Appy's rivalry is not going to be like Rose and Dom's at all (sans the crazy followers); it actually has a lot more to do with ah, Clemence taking over the QGA ;)
Capers is next to be updated, all the final chapters at once, but that'll take a bit of time. And then after that, etc will be my main fic! Sorry for the long wait for this chapter; I actively try to write, and I /want/ to write, but I'm trying to mind real life first even when I don't particularly want to :P
Thank you for reading! Report Review
haha I practically died laughing at the end!! That definitely did not go according to plan! The morning after scene with Scorpius was hilarious and well written. I look forward to reading more :)Author's Response: Hehehe, glad you enjoyed! :D Report Review
Is is sad that I had to go back and reread the last chapter to actually realize that it was a "shebang"? Haha. Don't get me wrong you wrote with subtlety which fits this story perfectly, I'm pretty sure i just need to get out in the world more ;)
Again, this couple will be the death of me!! Can you say "guiltiest pleasure"? Ah! They really are like a "dead cow" but without the gross flies maybe the smell, they slept on a beach and air dried after a night in a smelly lake that houses a giant squid...eww. They're just cute, for some reason bickering and disgruntled couples always trump lovey-dovey ones any day. And man, that mustard girl, got to hand it to her. She's revolutionizing the nations of fan girls who show devotion within seconds. Remind me to bring a bottle if i ever get a chance to go meet my OTPs! Here I come England~Author's Response: Perhaps they were doing errr water yoga? 8D Steamy water yoga, yes.
Bickering couples, wah guilty pleasure of mine /clearly/ throughout my stories 8D although ones that smell like dead cows and have clingy Malfoy-related attachments hrrmmm.
If only it were that cool to draw on your shirt with mustard in real life ;-; ... probably for the best.

I literally could not write this review for like five minutes because I was fangirling too much. Limbs flying everywhere, huge dorky smile, and a whole hot mess of 'OHMYGODYES!'
But what does Al think of this? That's the big question! He better not do something heartless like ABANDON Clemence or leave her to the Quirkers. Or, even worse, start dating Appy! He can't! He said he loved her, for Christ's sake! I mean, come on! Only an idiot would let the girl he loved fall mercy to the Quirkers!!! SERIOUSLY!!!
Okay, the next chapter better come out soon!!! I don't think i can wait! I mean, this is some serious poop!!! I NEED MORE ECT. AYERRGGGH!
Ahem. Update soon. Great chapter.
*suavely exits like she isn't a raving mad fangirl*Author's Response: I'd like to imagine that your limbs achieved flight and are currently sailing in the skies above your house 8D
There's a lot of wild speculation; I will say that there is likely a date coming up and that neither Clemence nor Albus have forgotten that they're still sort of using each other. Appy does not give up easy even if she has zero chances.
c: I will try my best to write quickly; t'isn't likely to happen but I will try to keep people up on updates in my life. Thank you! Report Review
GINA! Yay, another chapter!
Oh dear God, this was absolute gold dear :D I loved the awkwardness at the beginning, I mean, come on, it was Clemence and Albus having sex for the first time, it had to be as awkward as... :P I also loved how Clemence is starting to show that she cares, not that she'd outright admit it, but hey? It's progress ;)
I loved the scene in the Great Hall too! Team Dom and Team Rose fighting again, oh dear, when is their petty argument ever going to end? (I hope it doesn't anytime soon though, it's entertaining :P) I would have paid to have been there throwing sausage rolls. And the kiss between Clemence and Albus! With any other pair, it would have been overly cliche, but this is Clemence and PDA isn't her thing and oh, I loved it :D And Appy, mwahaha, is it bad that I'm all 'take that, b- sucker!'? Team Clemence, ftw! Mustard girl steals the chapter though :P
Argh, loved this chapter dear, and don't worry about the long wait, it was worth it xD And congrats on the first sex scene/morning after- is that something I should be congratulating? Oh well :P
~AishaAuthor's Response: I was totally struggling with character growth in first person, especially with a character like Clemence, because the entire time I was thinking 'Well, she does care in a sense, but she won't ever admit it or see it that way, so how do I show it if she doesn't even know it or interpret her actions as anything close to caring???'
BAHA now that you mention it, I would've paid to throw around sausage rolls too. The other thing I love about writing that kiss is that there's so much other meaning behind it (in those ginormous paragraphs), and that it becomes not about the kiss but about something to prove. And then the school gets to go to hell all over again 8D
