Oh, now THIS should be interesting.

If I made Cinderella, the audience would immediately be looking for a body in the coach. —Alfred Hitchcock

When I write a story, what do readers immediately look for?

Apples and puns.

Thanks...

... somehow that sounds as if it ought to be Cockney rhyming slang for something.

A Ciceronian style and to feel homesick

I'm greatly obliged.

And I apologise for the homesickness.

Pictures painted in words, sly digs at the well-deserving of such.

Bless.

That's more than I well deserve.

Oh, I was hoping you'd do this as well! :)

Gorgeous prose. Absolutely beautiful descriptions. England love, with every breath. Maturity, in terms of emotions and plot development. Meticulous level of research and detail. Cricket ♥ Strong female characters. Strong Harry, a somewhat insecure Draco, although he'd die before he showed it. Respect, to the characters and universe both. And love, so much love. ♥

How very kind.

Too kind, really, but I'll take it.

Apposite literary allusion and play with language, and a very good ear.
wemyss From: wemyss Date: October 31st, 2011 03:16 pm (UTC) (Link)

Oh, the ear's tin, really.

But the mind is retentive of trivia.

Seriously? Thank you.

More Draco,less Harry.

Odd, that.

I'm obliged for the insight. Hmm ... must consider....

England. Myth. :)
wemyss From: wemyss Date: October 31st, 2011 03:19 pm (UTC) (Link)

Myth! Myth!

You're very kind.

Perceptive characterisation cloked in whimsy and allusion.
wemyss From: wemyss Date: October 31st, 2011 03:20 pm (UTC) (Link)

Is it really?

How kind of you to think so. (Don't tell anyone it's humbug, really.)

Imperial nostalgia (in the nicest possible sense).
wemyss From: wemyss Date: October 31st, 2011 03:21 pm (UTC) (Link)

Blimp, that's me.

Thank you.

A stunningly accurate description of the England I know and love and recognise. Couple that with characters that I know and love and recognise and, more often than not, I am.
wemyss From: wemyss Date: October 31st, 2011 03:21 pm (UTC) (Link)

How vy kind.

Thank you.

Landscapes and traditions.
wemyss From: wemyss Date: October 31st, 2011 03:22 pm (UTC) (Link)

Landscapes? Me? Perish the thought.

It's really all just a Shell Guide Book, isn't it.

Thank you.
