British accents are pretty indeed
| GermanSam chapter 28 . 6/14/2013
So like, I got four reviews on Fictionpress because I just updated AUA (Future Fate, is that done? How was it? I’m only on chapter 6 right now.) and I thought each one might be you and I thought, “Dang it, she beat me to it”, but nope. I beat you to it. Unless you are working on a review right now and post before I get done… hm… I know you’re awake but I think you had plans today with Eathan or something. Either way, I want to read this so I can get details on the upcoming cute chapter.
And this is getting put on hold at 4:50 PM because my grandma just said we’re going to the pool. (I thought we were doing that at 4 so I was putting this review off then when we didn’t go to so I thought we were safe and now we are not. So I shall come back to this later.)
Okay, it’s 6:30 and I have returned. The pool was well…wet and stuff. But fun. I gotta work on my tan you know? Don’t want to be the color of the walls forever. Speaking of, Future Fate, are you dating Phil? How is he?
Have you reviewed yet? …Nope. So I still have a chance to beat you to it. I assume you’re at the movies because you texted me about it. So maybe you’re seeing Man of Steel or maybe you just wanted information about it. I don’t know.
So let me get to some reading. After I check Tumblr and stuff…
Okay, Tumblr took a while to load but I am back and ready to review. Let’s get to this.
AW! Noah and Richard are adorable!
Aw. Noah is all nervous and stuff. There will be a lot of aws here. I can see it.
“I want to be with you, dude.” It sounds so nonchalant even though I know it’s not. It’s the “dude” that did it for me.
Why is Richard mad? Why is he mad? WHY ISN’T HE JUST LETTING THIS HAPPEN? Gah!
God, they are acting like they’re married. The whole, “That’s it, you didn’t think” thing. Just. Married. They might as well be. I can’t tell if it’s adorable or if Richard is genuinely made. Is this sexual tension or an actual fight?
Whoa, wait. I’m confused. Aunt Pricilla snapped and didn’t kill Victor’s family members? Why would she kill Seth’s? What does he have to do with anything? Like why does she know Seth? Or was it just random people which turned out to be Seth’s parents? I don’t know. I got confused.
I find it ironic that Richard is the one saying he can’t be afraid of the possibilities considering that was Richard all of his life.
Noah doesn’t need to be afraid of mating with a human anymore because Richard isn’t a human anymore. So just stop fighting and make out already!
If werewolves didn’t have mates then I don’t think Noah would’ve picked Richard. He didn’t even know he swung that way. So…no.
Aw. AW! DAMN AW! They are so cute together! AND FINALLY!
But there is still half a chapter to go and I remember you saying it didn’t work out right. So I have a feeling things will go downhill from here.
OMG! DO WE GET A JELLIE MOMENT TOO?! You are spoiling us. But if this doesn’t work out…then I’ll just cry.
Sandi really wants food from me and it’s like two hours passed her dinner time so she is really bugging me. But I’m choosing to finish this first. Feel loved.
I LOVE THE HEARTBEAT DETAIL. Ahem. I just really like that and think that’s cute.
HE FREAKING LIKES YOU ELLIE! HE LIKES YOU SO MUCH! ACKNOWLEDGE IT! ACKNOWLEDGE IT!
Jasper is such a nerd. It’s cute.
Aw. Jasper is so cute when he’s nervous. I think it’s funny that he was the one who asked. Even though it’s normally the guy who asks, Ellie so dominant that it’s weird she didn’t ask first.
Aw. AWWWWW! AW! I will ride the Jellie ship to the ends of the earth!
This is an adorable chapter and you want to give us another one? I say yes. All my yes before “things go to shit” as you said. Because it will happen. It’s just the calm before the storm. Sigh… But Ellie has to pass on the Alpha gene and she’s the only one with a mate capable of doing that. Still…Jasper is quite human. Quite quite human. So like yeah, she should be worried.
I’m glad that Jasper isn’t that oblivious and he figured everything out. I loved him talking while Ellie kept saying yes. That might just be my new favorite thing of yours. It was so cute!
And I am speculating on why this was so nice and fun and why there is another nice and fun one to come. I don’t trust it. Something is up and it will break my heart. Someone’s dying here. And if someone is dying then that means the mate will die too. So that’s two deaths. Geeze, how could you? That’s so awful.
And I know the next chapter has Kate. So we get more couple fun? More box of hamsters? Addy and Peter too? And then just Blake by himself? Loner vampire. But seriously, box of hamsters. I ship it. Do it. Couples are nice. And nice is not death. Which is even more nice. Just saying.
Let me check to see if you have reviewed yet…not according to my email so I think I win this competition that you didn’t know I made. I reviewed first. I won. (Though you updated first so…yeah…I’m still calling this a win for me.)
Anyway, it’s now 7:15 so it took me like three hours to get this done. And you still haven’t reviewed my story? Shame on you and your personal life!
Time for me to go feed my dogs. Sandi is whining like crazy to try to get my attention for her food.
Alright, I shall talk to you later. I hope this was entertaining on some level.
And just because I can actually say it and I actually want it: Update soon!

I loved this! So adorable. Yes, everyone loves fluff! Especially me. :3
| Aura-Sama chapter 28 . 6/14/2013
Yayyyyy, FINALLY! Such a good chapter, I can't wait for the next one!
| Sara chapter 27 . 6/12/2013
OMG PLEASE PUT YOUR STORY ON WATTPAD
| GermanSam chapter 27 . 6/9/2013
Hey. I’m reviewing this while I’m mad at you. That’s right. You’re spending the night at Lupes’s house and you didn’t take your laptop, meaning you will not be chatting with me tonight. And you’re ruining my nightly routine, and then you said you weren’t sorry. You jerk. So now I’m not going to talk to you at all tonight. That’s right burn.
This doesn’t count because we’re not talking. I’m writing this now and you’re reading it later. It’s not the same so it doesn’t count. You jerk.
Since I’m ahead of all of my nightly duties such as editing (and I am ahead, you jerk) and doing my queue. It’s like the first time forever and I can’t even share it with you and you don’t even care because you’re hanging out with your real friends like they totally matter. Geez. Selfish.
So let’s see how much angrier I can get at you by reading this, shall we?
I’m used to writing this in an email and went to switch tabs rather than switch windows. It’s nice to have
Word again. I can include word count now! WOO!
But anyway, I’ve read the first little second and I noticed the chapter title. I don’t think I’m going to like where this is going.
Is Blake not like Vampire Sims? He can’t use an umbrella or something to hide from the sun? Does it immediately hurt him or take a few minutes to settle in? Questions about vampires.
I thought we were having a flashback for a few minutes there with the “dad” thing. I thought this was about to get sad. But nope, it’s just the crazy people.
I imagine Issac from Teen Wolf as Richard for some reason. Maybe because he’s kind of the baby werewolf and you think he’s “adorable”. So I just saw the word “puppy” which I associate with “adorable” and that’s how that came about.
I will never remember that Desmond is British. What’s up with him and Kate? Is she still even in the house? She kind of had a big role in the house before. Now, she’s hardly there or pushed to the back. You’d think that if Ellie and Noah are concerned about their mates that Desmond would share a few concerns for the girl he’s dating (hooking up with? I don’t know. Address that!).
I thought she already knew she was the Alpha? I’m confused on why this is a big discovery.
This seems odd that it didn’t occur to her. She knew she was an alpha like two chapters ago when she bit Richard, so like, duh, she’s stronger.
It was just like “Desmond, Desmond, Desmond. Look. I did a thing. Okay. Yeah. Go to sleep again. Bye.”
Now that’s she’s alpha and she’s even more powerful, shouldn’t her attraction to Jasper be like ten times what it is? Like she should just hear him breathing from like a block away or just want to jump his bones at random times like when she’s making a sandwich or going to check the mail or biting off the head of one of the hunters or something.
RICHARD ALREADY KNOWS NOAH. AND HE DOES KIND OF LIKE YOU… I THINK! Gah, oblivious characters.
You know Ellie. Take your own damn advice and make Jellie happen! DO IT!
Why aren’t they just together and happy and good to go? Right. Because their author is mean and doesn’t want to talk to me and I see how it is.
They are like teenagers. Noah there are people trying to kill you. Richard is not going to flirt with you. Plus he was an awkward human before he became not a human.
It will go to complete shit, Noah. It will. And not because of the gods but because of fate. (10 points to me for that pun, thank you.)
Seriously, Ellie. Don’t let the power go to your head! She could kill him. Could she bit him? Could that happen?
Oh, snow. Right. Weather.
Interesting plot developing stuff. Ellie can fight even if she hasn’t mastered it yet. It’s weird that Richard is a werewolf. I don’t think I’ll ever be used to it.
Do you ever wonder if you hadn’t gotten cancer and had finished this story when you had wanted to how the story would’ve turned out? Because if I had finished HBA before NaNo was over, it would’ve been way weird.
And you probably won’t see this until tomorrow so enjoy your time with your “real friends” and not in your house while you can. I know you appreciate that but still…selfish. I’m not going to tell you about this review and you better see this tomorrow, because if you see it tonight then why the HELL AREN’T YOU TALKING TO ME ON FACEBOOK? HOW DO I GET THROUGH THE DAY NOT TALKING TO YOU? JERK.
But whatever. Fine. Be selfish. Leave me alone. I’m just going to go now and take a shower then help my dad with his homework (sigh) and maybe work on a chapter of my own. Which you won’t read because you’re with your “real friends”.
Yeah, that’s right. I’m going to continue to be mad at you and just for that, I’m not going to talk to you one night to screw up your nightly routine. But you won’t know what night, it’ll just happen. So…ha! Take that.
I’ll see myself out now.

"'Do you think we can possibly get happy endings?'" Oh lord. If you kill them I might come after you. :P (Not really, you're the author, you do what you want.) Great chapter. The end part was fun, but it was a little confusing. Was Elli a wolf or halfway wolf or something?
| Kara P chapter 26 . 5/29/2013
Great chapter! :D
| GermanSam chapter 26 . 5/23/2013
Yeah it took you an hour to see the review and it was because I cracked and told you about it because you were bored. So yeah, my bad.
| GermanSam chapter 26 . 5/23/2013
I'm reviewing because what the hell? Didn't see this coming, huh? Because I said I would review tomorrow but here is the deal. I'm not going to tell you I'm reviewing now even though I'm chatting with you on FB currently so you might actually get this tomorrow but for the record, I did this today, the day you uploaded this, which I simultaneously hate and love you for because...yeah. Exactly. Go you for being productive and stuff though.
So I just spent the week with you because of Cece's graduation and stuff and I just came home today. That's right, we're separated, yet again. But not for long. It's not possible to be for too long so no worries. We will be reunited...eventually (hopefully Tuesday when you come down for the Taylor Swift concert).
But anyway, onto the chapter and the reason at hand here. I noticed the title and we just spent the past three days watching 24 hour long episodes of Teen Wolf. Take a minute to reread that. Did you get it? Yeah. That's 24 hours spent on Teen Wolf. 24. HOURS. HOURS! HOURS! Can you read that? HOURS! Geez. But anyway, I'm pretty sure that makes me a werewolf expert just about now with Teen Wolf at least so we'll see how much your wolves differ.
Before I even begin reading, I hope to "the gods" that Ellie is explaining all of this to Jasper (I almost typed Jackson...damn you TW) because he's interested and that provides some adorable Jellie moments! I WANT IT! I WANT IT SO MUCH! JELLIE HAS TO HAPPEN!
Chapter 26. Only six more to go. Kind of bittersweet but yeah.
Okay, why don't I actually read this now. Yep, let's do that.
Oh, right. Richard is like them now. Is he a hybrid or not because that would just suck on more than one level? I just reread that sentence and it didn't seem to make much sense. Looks like you're getting a sleepy rambly non-sense making review. Lucky for you bad for me. God, it's not even /that/ late. Sigh.
And you're distracting me from reading. Stop that. I'm only the first paragraph thing in!
I'm seeing some similarities to TW! But you know, with werewolves, that's going to help...or happen. Thanks brain for typing for me. Gah.
The whole household is a pack! Cute!
Oh yay! Less pain and crap to deal with for Richard. There is some good news though Blake being there and knowing all of this is a bit creepy.
I feel like I have a lot to say but I don't. TO READ ON...
I see no Jellie moments ahead. Just a small Richard/Noah one and it's weirdly interrupted by Ellie so yeah. WHERE IS THE JELLIE? Ha, I just realized that if I liked Jasper, our ship name would be Jam. Jellie and Jam. ...I'm just going to laugh at that for the next three years.
Moving on, let's get serious.
Or let me get distracted. You know, whatever. It's your fault chatting with me on FB and stuff. Geez. So rude. I'm doing this for you, you know!
Weird vampire/new werewolf-seer-thing sitting man hug. It's an interesting visual I'm getting.
My fingers are going numb. I don't think that's a good sign...
AH! I just see what you did! I JUST NOW SEE IT! You made it so Richard can't mate meaning he'll never know if Noah is his mate meaning they can't be happy together and Richard just has to guess if he's supposed to be with him and and and and...ugh! You!
But now, even though Richard already knows, he'll have all the senses. He can hear Noah's heartbeat quicken when he's near Richard and all cute things like that. It's cute.
There is still time for a Jellie moment. I am waiting for it.
Oh, right Desmond is British. I forget that. A lot. I wish you could like mark accents (without typing like a three year old) in stories.
OMG! It's like you read my mind. You just told me that there is a Jellie moment in this chapter. I haven't reached it yet but now I'm EXCITED. But there isn't much left on the scroll bar on the side...and that worries me.
And I just came to the conclusion that Jellie is meant to be together more than Richard/Noah because they don't have a fun ship name.
My fingers are still kind of numb. Maybe it's the way I'm sitting...
YOU SAID JELLIE WAS A QUARTER OF THE CHAPTER BUT I AM 3/4 OF THE WAY THROUGH AND YOU LIED!
Ahem, moving on.
At least Ellie is more responsible than Derek (is that even how he spells it?). Derek is stupid for bitting three wolves and thinking he could handle that. But he sure is pretty. Ah...abs.
And I'm distracted again. Damn it.
And again. Gah, Sam, focus!
Oh, and this just became awkward. Does he know? Is he flirting? Why don't we get anymore internal heartbeat sounds from Ellie or Jasper anymore? THAT WAS THE CUTE STUFF!
I feel like Jasper knows. Otherwise this conversation is quite random...
And now it got sad. Geez. Thanks Ellie for being sad.
JASPER LIKES HER TOO! WHY CAN'T SHE SEE THAT? Though on another note, I'm glad Richard's affection isn't totally oblivious to other people.
Aw. Ellie, why are you so sad? No wait, I know. Because your writer is awful. So when you survive everything, you should ask him out and make out with his face and have werewolf babies! DO IT! Yeah, that's not too extreme or fast or anything. It's a good plan. Follow it, Ellie! JELLIE IS MY HOUSEMATES OTP. So that better happen.
And we are reaching the end of my review here. I'm still chatting with you on Facebook (oddly about your story which is weird...) and my fingers are still a bit numb. I think I might get up to go pee soon or something. Maybe. Eh, I'm lazy though. I should go to bed soon though. God, personal decisions.
I'm halfway expecting you to go to sleep before I'm able to post this because I got this far and then you won't even see it. But if you do see it before tomorrow, then yay and if not, then oh well. I'm going to let you wait to see it and laugh at me weird car-lagged tiredness.
So adios for now! I'll hopefully be seeing both you and Future Fate soon!
Word count: still unavailable but it seems pretty long...
Adios for now! I won't tell you to update soon because it seems that you're going to which is both yay for you and boo for me but yay for the most part! Good luck and stuff! Adios!
Let's see how long it takes you to notice. This was posted at 10:50 PM on Thursday. And... GO!
| Nitewrite chapter 26 . 5/23/2013
YAY UPDATEEEEEE! I heart.
| Nitewrite chapter 25 . 5/19/2013
I love your enthusiasm about this story! I also really love the story. It's a lot of fun to read. Update soon!
| GermanSam chapter 25 . 5/18/2013
I suppose I should do this one too. I just reviewed your fanfiction-ish one shot about fandom wars or something or another. Whatever. That one.
I got back from Disney. You might be sleeping. We'll be together tomorrow. Yay. That's pretty much it.
Let's get to this thing, shall we?
Oh the title makes me totally want to read this. -_-
AW! ARE WE GOING TO GET SOME ELLIE/JASPER INTERACTION?! What would their shop name be? Elsper? Jellie? I like Jellie! Jellie it is! Let's get some Jellie action going on here!
NO! You tease us with the Jellie moment. Screw you for that. Why can't Ellie just make out with his face and then they have werewolve babies and they can just be happy! Gah!
There's Noah's POV that I wanted. He's all cute and unsure what Richard wants. Awwwww! Do they have a ship name too? Nichard? Nah. Roah? There doesn't seem to be a good option here. Richvan? (Isn't Noah's last name Sullivan?) Sullard? Weresee? Seewere? I don't know. I don't have a winner there... hm... what do you think?
I like how it says that he woke "his mate" up or whatever. THEY ARE SO CUTE! Ahem. Just saying.
Oh...right. There's that fight thing going on. At least they (well...Richard) had a second warning.
Does Ellie still have the plate? Because she has good reflexes to catch him with a plate in her hands.
OH NO! YOU DID NOT JUST KILL RICHARD WHEN WE JUST GOT HIM BACK? WHAT THE HELL TYPE OF EVIL ARE YOU? CAPS DO NOT CONTAIN MY ANGER HERE! RICHARD BETTER NOT BE DEAD!
Oh look. Kate has a purpose. And a sad one at that.
WOAH! ELLIE'S GOING TO MAKE RICHARD A WEREWOLF! WOAH! WOAH! WOAH!
WHAT IS HAPPENING?
Aw, Noah is so cute! It's sad.
Aw, Ellie is the Alpha now. Good going. But that means that she has to be the one to pass on her genes meaning she might just jump Jasper if she gets the chance. JELLIE FOREVER! Yes. I will sail that ship to the ground! But I would prefer if I didn't so don't make that happen.
And yay, Richard is alive and a werewolf. Is he a seerer/werewolf? Is that possible? NOW HE AND NOAH CAN BE TOGETHER AND HAVE THEIR ADOPTIVE WEREWOLF BABIES! YES! *insert their ship name here* FOREVER!
I still want more Jellie moments. So...get on that. That could be my inner romance buff wanting that but I don't care. Make it happen!
And good chapter, as usual. I'm jealous that you get to work on writing. Good job updating!
No rush to update anytime soon but you know, whenever.
SEE YOU IN PERSON SOON HOLYCRAP!
