Chapter: Passion Among the Primroses

Besides being funny, this story is very true to life. How many times have any of us been attracted to someone and sure we were falling in love to later decide it wasn't an attraction at all. And how many goofy things have we put up with when we thought there was an attraction. I really enjoyed this story.

Chapter: Passion Among the Primroses

When I first saw your claim, I was excited! I didn’t know what I was expecting, but this would have beaten any expectation I had. How you wrote it is simply the only way this could have escaped as bitterly and hilariously romantic without affecting canon. I usually despise stories written as diary entries, but I had an obscene amount of fun reading this. Poor Malafda, I never really liked her. Or her brother. Loved both Arthur and Molly, though! They were so aptly written.


Hahaha! Fudge in his country cottage. I see a naughty fic there. I giggled every time Malafda called him a gasbag.

You mad woman! I don’t even know how you came up with such brilliant stories. Well done!

Author's Response: Now this is a review I can respond to - lololololololololol

Thank you very much.

Here's the deal. Once upon a time Croll wrote a drabble for a TTB comp and for some reason it was Mafalda having an unrequited crush on Arthur. Fast forward (with a time turner) three and a half years, and Croll wrote a diary entry which she thought was the quickest way to write a fic so she could claim something else ... Then a reviewer came along - we shall call her HJ - and left a review mentioning Malfalda's brother and hahahahahahah Gerald - Merkin, Croll still hate him. *growwwls*

Thank youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

Crolllllll ish

Hehehe. Carole, this story just made me LOL so much. You got into Mafalda's head so well here, and I loved the voice you gave her. It's a little daft, but in a nice way hehe.

And I felt sorry for Mafalda -- after all of Arthur's blunders, she still liked him, only to find out that he and Molly eloped :( It's sad on her, though there's no way they would have worked really. I thought it was interesting how Mafalda viewed Molly as well, how she thought Molly was "simpering" (and the Molly I remember from canon is anything but). Just shows how jealous Mafalda is I suppose.

Anyway, this story just made me laugh so much, Carole, and I really enjoyed it :D

Author's Response: Thank yoiuuuu. I'm glad you picked up on the Molly simpering bit because you're quite right. Molly wouldn't simper at all, but in Mafalda's eyes she not only simpers, but she's 'fast' - hahahahahahahah.

Yes, poor Mafalda, but we all know Arthur only loves one woman. ~Carole~

That was very cute, Carole. Arthur was lovely, spot on with his Muggle-ish-ness. It never would have worked out with Mafalda, though, even with their primroses. Hee hee. Very fun to read! ~Gina :)

Author's Response: Heh heh - well, it was Molly who loved primroses, I think that's the only reason he liked them too. Ha ha. Poor old Mafalda - he never knew her name. This is based on the fact that I always got it wrong. Thanmk youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu ~Carole~

This was light and entertaining. I enjoyed Mafalda's rather chatty, if slightly annoying, diary style, and her excitement as her friendship with Arthur became a full blown crush. And Arthur was very IC--the thing about him using magic on Muggle plants so they bloomed at the wrong time of year, was very apt :) And being slightly dopey, he obviously is just being kind and sweet and would never dream that poor Mafalda would misconstrue his intentions.From the timeline, I knew he'd be marrying Molly *soon* and so was expecting that to end, and Mafalda's crush to not be reciprocated, and the way you carried that through was really sweet.

I also liked the way, at this stage, the people who are so high up in the Ministry by trio era are middling officials--that was a nice touch to use canon politicians rather than make up OCs. I loved Mafalda's fury at the end--poor girl, she doesn't seem able to get a break. Nice story :) Alex

Author's Response: GAHHHHHHD, thank you, Alex. This makes me laugh a little (the fic not your review.) I could have developed a plot with it - at one point I was going to have them running through Muggle gardens but I was constricted by time and the diary format - which I knew would keep this short.

I used Crouch and Fudge because it made it more relateable, I think, to the Potterverse. Umm, sorry, can't respond coherently hahahahahahahhahahahah - where's my padded cell?

When I read this I wasn't expecting it to be told from the POV of a diary...and to be so darned funny!

This line made me LOL...along with the last one:

I shall ask him to lunch tomorrow. I shall wear my prettiest robes and let him talk about plugs.

I must say, I never pictured Mafalda in that light. Thank you for a fresh look on her! :P

Author's Response: Thank youuuuuu. Yeah, I wonder if I should put this in humour. Hmmmm, I'll have to think because most people are probably thinking badly of poor Arthur. heh heh heh. Thank you for the review. It's been a mad mad mad mad month and a half, hasn't it?

I must resume my real life as a crime fighter ... or whatever it is I did before I found this challenge. Thanks again. ~Carole~
