I am super excited for her dance in front of James. I love Twelfth Night, and was pleasantly surprised to find a shakespeare story. I think you have written it really well, and can't wait to find out what happens next. Update soon please :D Report Review
I am so excited by this story, and I really want to know what happens next. I really hope you find the time to update soon! Report Review
i have just realised, this story is modelled on she's the man:))) Report Review
omg please please please you HAVE to update soon, does he recognize her?
i have this sort of feeling that, after the performance, Viola will be sort of walking around, and james will take an interest in her, and then she keeps disappearing mysteriously to turn back into Sebastian and james is like, 'woah who was she' and then YEAH.
okay but i just kind of really have to know what happens next so it would be super cool if you could update soon, yeah. (:Author's Response: Mhm, I like your theory. Excited to see what you'll all think of what I've got planned.
I hope I'll be able to upload it in a couple of days. ;) Thanks! Report Review
Well, since I just bagan reading this story, and find it quite original for such an old story, it sure would be a killer if you didn't finish it. I read the 12th night in middle school, just for fun, and I loved the story. Yours is just as good, if not better. So, live a little, finish the story :)Author's Response: Every single person in this world should read Shakespeare just for fun. :D I wouldn't go so far as saying mine's better than the original but thank you for this lovely review/compliment! ;) Report Review
can't wait for the the dance to happen and to see if James remembers her and i love the story so far. I also hope that Scorpius and rose have more time and i think it would be cool if Viola had someone to talk to about the fact that she is playing at being Sebastian.Author's Response: Yeah, I know. I've been thinking about someone whom she would trust enough to tell and all I can come up with are James and Sebastian himself but that would be a really stupid thing of me to do story-wise. :D
Scorpius and Rose aren't over just yet, so keep reading! ;) Report Review
I died when this ended... I just can't wait to see James's reaction!!! Will he and Viola have a sweet reunion? If so, what will become of 'Sebastian'? I am really enjoying imagining the look on James's face when he sees her on stage... mostly because neither of them knew the other was magical too!!! :P I'm a nerd... this is probably really mean of me to say, but I kinda wish you had less of a life!!! D: That way you could update sooner and I could continue not having a life... oh well... it is what it is... OH!!! I almost forgot to ask you, when do you think the next chapter will be out? Hopefully soon, I JUST CAN'T WAIT! This is a really great story, by the way. I can't wait to read more of your inventive imagination's doings!!! You deserve a 2836382638/5!Author's Response: Oh, sweet reunions... how very rare they are in my stories. :D
I just wish there was more life for me to live!! Does that make sense?
But wow! What an awesome review. Reading it makes me wanna write more! So thank you. :) Report Review
HOW CAN YOU LEAVE US THERE ? I NEED TO KNOWW WHAT HAPPENS ... more plz ?Author's Response: I know right... me too! ;) Report Review
Ugh this is honestly my favourite story! I just can't describe how much I love it. Everytime I read a chapter, I keep wishing it would go on and on forever. And I really hope James recognises Viola!! It would just be perfect. Please put up the next chapter as soon as you can because it kills me every day that I log on and check only to find no update!!!
More soon I hope,
As always 10/10
AnnabelAuthor's Response: If only chapters went on and on forever, and the notion of cliffhangers was never invented... I'd die happy. ;)
Going to work on it RIGHT NOW ! Viola hopes he'll recognize her also, but on the practical side, it would be really inconvenient if he did... Mhm. :)
Thank you for the review! Report Review
This is truly awe-striking, yet I think you could have left out the last paragraph about meeting the potters and Weasleys...Author's Response: I don't know. Viola likes her celebrities... And living in France while being British, it's only normal that she'd get excited to meet wizarding celebrities like the Potters and Weasleys. :)
But thank you soo much for the lovely review! Report Review
I love the characterization: Rose is exactly how I'd imagine, a cross between moody Ron and bookworm Hermione. Olivia makes me laugh too. I like the tangled web you're weaving... great work :)Author's Response: It's great to hear that Rose is coming across the way she's supposed to. :D Yay, Olivia's making you laugh. I feared that everyone was instantly going to be sick of her because I made her kinda annoying. :p She's not all bad. ;)
Keep reading and thank you! Report Review
I love this little bit of back story, it just gets the readers to really root for Viola and James to end up together! Report Review
Amazing job! I keep imagining that James will finally realize that Sebastian is Viola through some very public and dramatic reveal, and then that everything finally falls into place! I hope not any time soon though, afterall, they havent even gone on christmas break!
Keep them coming and with the amazing work!Author's Response: Mhm, not sure about the 'very public' part. :D But you're right it's not happening any time soon. Still a lot more to come. I hope you'll like it. :)
Thank you! Report Review
Great chapter!!! I'm predicting Rose will be the first one to figure out Viola's secret. I love how persistent James is - just like his namesake as well as his character inspiration, it fits so well! I'm also enjoying all the English Lit references haha. Can't wait to keep reading :)Author's Response: Maybe she will, maybe she won't. She's a clever girl but Valentine seems to be onto something too... We'll see. ;)
Thanks for all the reviews. Report Review
This is so cleverly done!!! I love the integration of Twelfth night and Hogwarts - like using Polyjuice potion, how perfect! Viola's nervousness and girly behaviour is very entertaining too. :) Report Review
I CANNOT WAIT FOR THE BALL TO ACTUALLY START! Please tell me that you have already begun writing the next chapter. I really hope that James recognizes Viola (I decided that I am going to call her that even if she is in Sebastian's body). I hope that there is lots of drama in the next chapter because Viola is going to have to be running around switching back and forth. It will probably be very entertaining. Anyway please, please, please update soon!Author's Response: Gonna work on it the next couple of days! :) Thought a lot about adding that last line (about recognising her) or not, and I'm still not sure about it. It's like there's so much pressure on it now, while she didn't even recognize him until she saw the tattoo! Just wanted to remind people that they had already met before... But yeah, I guess we'll see how it goes. ;) Report Review
Iīm so happy you havenīt given up writing this story yet. With love Author's Response: So am I!
Thank you. :) Report Review
wait wait wait why haven't i already reviewed this?...weird...
anyway, i kind of forgot what really happened in the chapter so - NO WAIT, I REMEMBER. olivia being annoying, and rose thinking that sebastian IS actually jealous but of olivia - not james.
yeah i remember this now...
and the plot thickens!
SO BASICALLY YOU HAVE TO UPDATE RIGHT AFTER THE BREAK, OKAY? OKAY.
MERRY CHRISTMAS! (:Author's Response: Haha, Olivia being annoying. I do make her look bad, don't I? Yeah, never really empathized with Olivia in the original... :D I'm trying to make her more likable, though. ;)
I didn't really update right after the break but honestly this is like the first time that I have had a moment to just REPLY to the reviews.
Hope you liked the new chapter! ;) Report Review
I love this!!! Update soon! Twelfth night was my favourite after Midsummer Night's dream! The way you have brought all the little Potters and Weasleys together is awesome! :) Report Review
This is so bloody dramatic!
Seriously. Emotional rollercoaster in the house.
Please update soon? I only started reading today and am already addicted... I've never read a "girl goes to school as a guy" book that's been so well-written; they normally go like this:
I am just a simple, plain, supermodel gorgeous genius that wants to go to a smart person school. But the ONLY smart person school is like in another country with, like, only guys there like yeah? So I'm just going to dress up as a dude because that makes sense! But like there's this guy who I'm making into a confused puddle because like he like-likes me but thinks I'm a boy! OMG but no w-w-worries ma bestie, everybody will forgive me for crossdressing in the end, because when I take my man shirt off you can suddenly see my enormous jugs (that were somehow taped up, despite that being like tots uncomfy) and they're all like "yep. He's a she. Lets let her stay here, and while we're at it, hows about nobody sues us for allowing a female child to live with hoardes of testosterone fueled males? And screw all that paperwork; it was like totally her destiny to be here. Right?"
Aannnyyyway, I really really like this story. 10/10 :DAuthor's Response: HAHAHA! I love your review! :P Especially the beginning: 'I am just a plain, simple, supermodel gorgeous genius'. That is soo the typical female protagonist. ;)
The next chapter is a bit less dramatic, more like a transition toward the Ball, and writingchapters like that always goes a bit slower than the action-packed chapters. :) I hope you'll like it.
Thank you! Report Review
I'm just waiting for the moment Viola reveals herself. Report Review
DRAMA! DRAMA! DRAMA! So much drama right now. All these new dates for the dance. All the couples that are going to be going together. They are all interesting. I was thinking that Sebastian (Viola?) would ask Rose, because then he (she?) doesn't have to worry about his (her?) date actually liking him (her?). Which pronouns am I supposed to be using? Anyway how is Sebastian (Viola?) going to have a date while having to be Sebastian and Viola? Is the next chapter the dance? So many questions! Anyway please update soon!Author's Response: Haha, I love your review. :) There's still one chapter before the dance, 'Preparations', which, I think, says it all. ;)
Use whichever pronoun you like, I'd say. :D I always use Viola/her even though she's pretending to be Sebastian, just to keep it as un-confusing as possible when Sebastian really comes into play. ;) Report Review
Ahhh you updated!!! Thank you so much, I'm really looking forward to the next chapter :)
10/10Author's Response: Thank you! I think I'm going to write the next chapter now... :D Report Review
I love this story and can't wait for the next chapter! Thanks for updating it was great! I can't wait for the ball. Please update soon!!Author's Response: Thank you so much. :)
I can't wait for the ball either. ;) Report Review
Isn't this just a Harry potter version of "she's the man"
You could have changed the names at the very least.Author's Response: As I have mentioned, this story is based on Shakespeare's 'Twelfth Night', as is the movie 'She's the man', that's why the names are the same. I'm not going to change the names, because I feel like that would be abusing William Shakespeare's beautifully written play. You wouldn't change the names of Romeo and Julliet if you're making a remake of this play...
Originally, Shakespeare's play was called 'Twelfth Night; or What You Will', so yeah, I try to stay as true to the story as possible. :) Hope this will clarify some things for you. Report Review
