Review #1, by EmmyBacon Lucky Bird

24th February 2018:
*stares unblinking for over a minute making us both rather uncomfortable*

Firstly, you are so lovely for the thanks, but it is you who is write all this bludgringly awesome material and I am just lucky to read it, but thank you so much for making me apart of it!

Secondly...well...really?! The aftermath of her memory coming back is very bitter sweet and brilliantly written. You can feel her embarrassment and shame and I'm not ashamed to same, have felt that way many a time as a teenager (and an adult) and can totally relate to her in this way!

I can't for the life of me imagine this is the last time we shall see some of her American cohort, but it still sad for her to leave that close connection to normality for her!

Of course they had to be the last to the NYE party, and I've never heard those traditions before (very superstitious mother, I still wave to Magpies and never leave new shoes on a table) so you've taught me something there!!

You are a sneaky sneaky sneak thief... and I love it! Of course Harry is going to see Ginny and think wow! and Evelyn, wrong timing, we all know what men are like!! (Sorry to stigmatise all men with the same brush!!) (not sorry) (sorry)

Does this mean.after al this time. Emmy gets her way with a little Twin on Twin romance?! Please say yes!

Also know you're awesome, keep writing, keep doing what you're doing, keep twinning it up ;)

Your friend, EB xxx

Author's Response: Emmy, you deserve the thanks! I'm so happy to have you as one of my readers, because I know I can always count on you for quality comments and feedback!

I absolutely agree with you about the aftermath of Evelyn's remembering. The shame and embarrassment... I've been there, too.

As for her American friends, I'm not quite sure about the cohort yet. There are still some threads I'm trying to place later in the timeline, so maybe there will be room for them to come back! I just put up a new chapter, so you'll definitely see you weren't too off base already.

Also, I feel so honored to be called a "sneaky sneaky sneaky thief." That was absolutely what I was going for, and I too am sorry not sorry about it.

I however won't say anything yet about the twin-on-twin romance... That, too, will be discussed soon!

xx, Antigone

Review #2, by EmmyBacon Vada

7th February 2018:

The prophecy! Exiting stuff. I like how you've balanced the lightheartedness with drama here. It really did need to happen, leading us into a false sense of security and then, boop, drama!

And Harry's connection too. Very well intertwined. Great job

EmmyBacon xx

Author's Response: Oh, I'm so glad you like the balance! And I have to admit I'm a little flattered that you felt that false sense of security, haha! I've been working on that balance in the upcoming chapters, so that the structure is set for the later events... I'm so excited to share them with you, and see what you think. I hope to have the tweaking will be done soon, and I'll have a new chapter up soon.

Thanks for all the feedback, Emmy!

Review #3, by pink bunny The Wild Hunt

12th January 2018:
Such a lovely and satisfying update! It was everything i expected but yet so much more!
Your portrayal of the wild hunt fit so perfect so manly and traditional!

Author's Response: I am so happy to hear you call it satisfying! It definitely was satisfying to write it, especially as I envisioned how a tradition like the hunt would affect the characters. Elizabeth is so ready to take up traditions like these, whereas characters like Hera and Draco find them less enticing and more obligatory (though Draco is still very effected by them). Those effects and how they navigate them makes these Elizabeth-focused chapters so fun to write! xx, Antigone

Review #4, by EmmyBacon The Wild Hunt

11th January 2018:
I am really loving reading the chapters that allow us a glimpse into the other side. The dedication and commitment and passion of those that served the dark lord can not be taken lightly. Elizabeth does and excellent job to showcase this in this chapter.
Great job, great angst and looking forward to more :)

Author's Response: When I went back to edit "The Wild Hunt" as I was getting ready to post it, I was thinking a lot about the dedication and commitment that you mention! I definitely feel like my vision for the Dark Lord and his followers is almost religion like (though, perhaps closer to a cult than a religion) and it's taken very seriously. I loved the way the fable of the hunt played into that, and it was a really fun chapter to write. I'm glad you liked it!

Review #5, by pink bunny Yuletide

9th January 2018:
Doing great with the balance I think! Such a lovely update this time! Of course I can't wait until the next update sure it's going to great!

Author's Response: I'm so glad you think it's balanced well. I'm writing a few chapters ahead right now, and it definitely feels as though some of those are more "filler"-ish chapters, but I think there are some small moments that are important, too, that need to be explored. Balancing those against the drama and the angst and the action is definitely going to be a continued challenge... All while trying to stay true to canon! Good practice for my personal fiction, I know, but a challenge nonetheless! : ) Thanks for being such a wonderful reviewer! xx, Antigone

loved this update now at least the aunts know now what evelyn knows about Elizabeth. But I love Elizabeth so much! love how you write her can visualize her completely with no problem!

Author's Response: I love Elizabeth, too. Writing her is definitely a bit of a guilty pleasure! (There are definitely some scenes ahead that you'll enjoy between her and Draco! I can't wait to share them!)

Review #8, by EmmyBacon Yuletide

27th December 2017:
I'm really falling for this story.
I like the juxtaposition and the parallel lives that are being led. The seemingly same but different worlds.
I'm really looking forward to reading more.
I have to say I'm a little confused about the relationship between her and George, I was expecting something to blossom then but all of a sudden have is the flavour of the Month. I'll be interested to see where that goes!
Keep up the good work

Author's Response: Thank you so much for the review! I'm so happy to hear you're liking the juxtaposition between Evelyn and Elizabeth. They are very different... And I love writing them both!

The story is being rewritten and expanded from an earlier version that I wrote many years ago (that was originally posted on Quizilla), and originally the relationship between Evelyn and George was more front-loaded and developed early on. I wanted to leave it a little more ambiguous as I revised. Without giving too much away, I feel like I can tell you that there is definitely a connection between them but it will take time for Evelyn to reveal whether its just a strong friendship or romantic. I'm getting ready to write a scene between the two of them, and I think it will definitely help clarify a few things!

You'll have to let me know what you think as it continues to develop!

Review #9, by pink bunny Cleaving

9th November 2017:
Lovely chapter, soo glad to get on and see a new update. I can hardly wait to read what's to come!

Author's Response: Hopefully you will be getting on to see another new chapter soon! I am almost embarrassed it has taken so long for me to update! (I suppose I have a few good excuses...) But I am excited about what is ahead, and I cannot wait to see what you think!

Review #10, by pink bunny Knocked Down

10th October 2017:
Loved this update! good visual of all the emotions and feelings!

Author's Response: Thanks, pink bunny! It's hard to strike a balance between realistic feeling and melodrama sometimes, I think, when you're writing. I don't want Evelyn to seem overly dramatic, but I want it to be clear what she's feeling... So I'm glad you thought the visuals came through well!

I'm hoping to have another chapter up sometime this week!

Review #13, by pink bunny Curious and New

7th September 2017:
was well worth the wait keep going with this story!

Author's Response: Thank you! I am definitely still writing this story--and can happily say that I am well into chapter twenty-six at this point. (Which I am already eager to see what you'll make of it!) This month has been a bit busier than I anticipated, so any free moment I've gotten has been dedicated to writing instead of posting... I'm hoping to get a new chapter into the queue this Saturday though! Stay tuned! xx

20th August 2017:
I have read all of your chapters and find this story to be very interesting and very entertaining!

Author's Response: I'm so happy to hear that! Thank you ♥

It really means a lot to have a story described as interesting and entertaining, because I'm really trying to achieve those things with Evelyn and Elizabeth's stories! Thanks for reading along.

Chapter eighteen is in the queue... I hope you enjoy it!
