Chapter: Kinesis and Semantics

Zomg Dimkirk is dedicated to me. I feel so very, very honoured!

Wow this chapter is great. There's something about it that perfectly captures those languid, lazy summer days spent with people you don't necessarily like but will have to do.

But Dimkirk and Cormac lmaoooo.

Chapter: Kinesis and Semantics

Loving it. You've caught the language so perfectly, Natalie, and it really adds that extra layer of authenticity. These people have too much money and too much time on their hands. Can't wait to see what they get up to next.

Author's Response: YAY! I will be posting the third chapter soon! :)

Chapter: Kinesis and Semantics

It is no good. I will have to get my copy of the collected works out, to sort out all the references. I have not read "Much ado about nothing" since my school days. That's fifty years ago!

Author's Response: D: But you don't have to make the connection! I have only used a very broad influence: the characters of Dean and Daphne (Benedick and Beatrice), Astoria and Draco (Hero and Claudio), and Dimkirk the Deformed as Deformed ;), the social critique and the basic plot. My fic can be read independently; it doesn't depend on the play. I hope you'll stick around! - Natalie

Chapter: Pride, Prejudice and Stupidity

Oooh.... this is delicious! I love when you write Slytherins! You've got a great set-up here, and I can't wait to see what's coming next. Great writing, great characterization... no suprises in that area. It was lovely to see your name pop up in the most recents, Natalie. I'm in for the ride!

I was relieved to see it wasn't our Harry with McLaggen, but I should have known. I kept thinking, there's something strange because this isn't Harry, and Natalie knows it! Haha! Trickery!

Author's Response: LORI IS READING MY FIC! :D I am so pleased you like my Slytherins - I think I enjoy writing the snakes the most hehehe. And ha ha ha! I believe I tricked Croll as well with my red "harring"... I am the mistress of bad puns. Thank you for reading and reviewing! :)

I don't use the "slash" tag in warnings, mainly because I don't agree with the use of slash as a warning. If you are uncomfortable with slash, let your journey end here. Au revoir!

ILY - Brilliant!

Love your prologue. I'm giggling and oohing and ahhhing already.


Author's Response: YAYAY.

Chapter: Pride, Prejudice and Stupidity

Okay, it's not like my expectations weren't already stretching into the heavens but this is truly glorious. I don't know whether to cry with joy or hang my head with self-indulgent envy. You are brilliant. Yes, you may be using the Bard as inspiration, but your skills as a writer are absolutely shining in this fic. It would be too easy to overload this review with more adjectives but I shall refrain myself. Perhaps. (Yeah, that's not going to happen.)

There is something so magical about this chapter. Your prologue was an apt opening to a Shakespeare-inspired fic, but the way this chapter unfolds is just perfect. Perfect, I say! You introduced us so well to the main players, and even the amount of time you allotted each character just felt so right. There are a lot of characters in here, but you spread them out really well, and I'm sure even those who aren't familiar with MAAD will keep up.

I love Daphne already. I admit, I read this out loud, and when I got to Daphne and Astoria's scene I was well and truly cackling away.

Theo's section, though, really struck me. The writing here is exquisite. His lust is completely palpable. It was all just so vivid in my mind and my senses, and I love the way you are crafting his character in particular.

That's the thing about this fic, your characters are already so real. In one chapter you've introduced us to a large cast, and even though they are adaptations in a way, it doesn't feel like you are copying or stamping a new name on to someone who already exists in literature. You've taken their canon histories into account and created something truly amazing.

This review is basically a gush. Apologies, my darling elf.

I am so, so excited to read more.

Author's Response: crap. how do i respond to this? in small letters, obvs!

since you played a major role in actually forcing me to write this fic, i am VERY VERY excited that you are enjoying it so far! the first chapter was extremely tricky to write because i had to introduce so many characters without focussing too much on backstories. theo's section was my favourite to write :D i am so happy you like the story, greenleaf! <3
