Review #1, by Kristina1990 Six: The Second Scene

29th December 2016:
Fiona can be a real *insert word here that I would have to censor away anyway*. So yes, she can be a difficult character.

I think it's none of James' business who she dates, even if it is a teammate, because ultimately, if she doesn't flaunt it around in his face, this shouldn't be a problem among adults. You grow in and out of things. James and Fiona were a couple, then they weren't, then they found new partners they can be happy with. So, James moaning around is really a bit childish.

However, this does not justify a self-righteous fight, where she tries to make him feel bad and then drive him to the edge of losing it by having a go at him. Very insensitive, very inappropriate, especially since it doesn't even take place on neutral ground.

We all have our weaknesses. We all grow up eventually. Maybe Fiona will too ;).

Author's Response: Thank you for reviewing! :)

Yeah, they're both being immature and silly. Fiona is ultra-confrontational and vents her frustrations by manipulating other people so that she feels like she has control over her life.

Rest assured that characters will develop, relationships will change, etc.

Thanks again for the review!!

Review #2, by Emma Six: The Second Scene

22nd December 2016:
Okay, ngl, not a huge fan of Fiona right now.
Like, I totally get it, she was hurt in the way it ended with James but she wasn't completely innocent there either, refusing to work something out. If Fiona was in Rose's year, it means James is two years older then her, already having a career of his own, maybe it wasn't possible for him to move away? I'm not saying I think James' career was more important, I just think James said some rash words about them ending it and Fiona becoming angry with him and refusing to think of another way. They were both incredible immature (and hurt I'll bet!) in that moment, both in the wrong, yet James is the one getting all the blame. It's understandable from Fiona, but from all of his family members?
And James warning Xavier away from Fiona isn't the nicest thing to do but I can understand it in a way since he's probably still hurt from how it ended.
Now, I think Fiona is ALSO still hurt and bitter (and she's jealous of James new relationship, she just doesn't want to admit it to herself) but wow, what she did in this chapter was not cool at all. She actually comes across as more immature then before, failing to move on, wanting to hurt James "fragile ego", bullying her way to the top because it's fun... just, stop. And don't do it again, even it if makes you "drunk with power", for what? For belittling another person, deliberately making them feel bad? For all she accuses James of wanting to flaunt his new relationship, wasn't that exactly what she was doing, just in a more personal way since she sought him out alone? James is right to be disgusted with Fiona's behavior and I hope it comes back to bite her in the end (also it's not healthy behavior from any of them).

I know this is from Fiona's point of view so of course her actions will be biased, but I'm always going to defend James when I think he needs it since I'll admit I'm terrible weak for him, lol. And I don't think the breakup was all James fault, and Fiona accusing James of being bitter and jealous is incredibly hypocritical since that's exactly what she is. :)

But even if I'm not too sure how I feel about Fiona and her actions regarding her ex, I really enjoy the other part of her life, she seems to be a kickass Auror and the case and the mystery surrounding it is...intriguing. Can't wait to see Fiona work with Harry eventually (and to maybe see his side of things, especially since the family members we've met all have been negative towards Evangeline, it doesn't feel like she's ever been giving a chance because she's not Fiona, but Harry should just want his son to be happy so he's got another perspective)
Anyway, can't wait for your next update!

Author's Response: Hey! Your criticism of Fiona is definitely well-founded. I can't promise that she will grow up and realize the error of her ways right away, but she will mature and figure stuff out over the course of the story.

Glad you're enjoying it and thanks so much for the review! :)

17th December 2016:
Well find you someone else, someone who wont fall in love with you.

*lol* Hahaha, Rose is hilarious. A real meddler. In every sort of way.

Having people talk behind you back usually means their own lives are so boring they have enough else to talk about. Very unpleasant fellows, her coworkers. But maybe they will all find a healthy way to be around each other soon. :)

Author's Response: Thanks for reviewing! :) Glad you like Rose!

Juhhhu, blood. *args* I would have reacted the same way. The smell alone... :(

And yeah, jellyfish. Really? How does one even dress for a jellyfish party? But you gotta love friends who decide it's a good idea to misuse your flat (not THEIR flat, of course) for a good party. It's my nightmare.

Well, I'm looking forward to the choice of costumes...

Author's Response: Thank you so much for reviewing :)

Haha, throwing theme parties is actually my dream, so I'm using this story as a way to take it out on the world a bit.

Review #12, by Kristina1990 One: London Again

12th December 2016:
Hey yeah,

I agree with Rose. Get yourself a partner, who supports you in your life, not decides to throw some additional stones in the way. Really, he broke up with her, because she got to fulfil her dream? How immature!

Or has he grown up a little now ;)?

Author's Response: Thanks for your review! :D James was definitely immature, but hopefully we will see him grow up a bit as you said!
