These chapters are awesome! It's very...realistic, and the portrayals of the characters keep close to the actual characters. love it :D

I'm not completely up to speed with Wizards of Waverly Place, but I watch it here and there when I have the time. I found everyone to be wonderfully in character, which is very hard to find when reading any sort of alternate universe story. I did take the time, however, to review the four-episode arc involving Stevie to fully understand the plot, and I absolutely love your expansion of Stevie's relationship with her brother and the wizard revolution. This is quite possibly one of the best stories I've read on . Great job!

awesome, absolutely awesome. You way you wrote it- I couldn't stop reading after I started. You developed Stevie's characters well, I hated the episode where they pretty much killed her off. Great stuff :D

This is so unbelievably amazing. You wrote them so well. And you did such an amazing job of creating a real character and back story for Stevie. It amazes me that you wrote such a complex story in only twelve chapters. It's amazing.

It was fantastic. Sad, but with a hopeful ending. Pure brilliance. Please don't stop writing. You'd be doing the world a serious disfavor. You have to continue putting your work out there.

I loved how Stevie described England. British. Yes, it probably was. :)

This is so amazingly fantastic. It really makes me realize how underdeveloped of a character Stevie is. I like this version of the whole Stevie story a loot more than disney channel's. It's just so incredible. Really well thought out.

First off I want to say, as a person who usually doesn't like femmeslash, this is written so extremely well. I'm not a fan of the show, I literally found the episodes featuring Hayley as Stevie and watch them and was completely pissed with how they ended her arc. It didn't make any sense to me, but apparently (from someone who was in the fandom) informed me that the episode was hated so I felt a little better.
You've captured Stevie so beautifully here and I'm totally sucked in. If it wasn't so late for me, I'd finish the story but I need sleep. Just know that you've got a person who isn't fond of femmeslash or of the show for the most part, hooked to this story. So wonderful job and I can't wait to continue reading! I'm sorry is this is a babbling review that makes little sense but as stated, I need some sleep ;)

hey, your storys are really awesome!
Most of the Alex and Stevie!
The two really fit together very well!
Would be glad if you would write a few stories of the two!
I kinda like the couple that were really cute together!
Would be very happy, and perhaps a few other people when you write new stories about the two!

I just read this story for the 4th time and cry again it has so much emotions and I want to ask there is any chance of a sequel I just can't get enough of Not With a Bang

"Justin wasn't getting anywhere with Stevie—and why would he? He was essentially a replica of Warren, limited to his own conceited success and self-glorification." Speaks volumes to me and only makes me utter contempt for Justin more viable. Why isn't this pairing stronger then frigging Jalex? WHY!

First of all: So. Much. Love. The two characters just had so much chemistry on the show, it was unbelievable. I never watched "The Good, The Bad, and the Alex" just because someone told me what happened to Stevie at the end, and I couldn't bear to see that. So thank you for constructing this amazing alt universe. And thank you for not making it a walk in the park, either, because real life never is.
I love how you've taken this opportunity to explore the characters, to make them real and three dimensional and so beautifully flawed. Your prose also flows beautifully, it was a pleasure to read.
That said, I have a few tiny little nitpicks. The one that sprang up most often was the use of "passed" instead of "past." English grammar sucks and is complicated, and I can't think of exact examples in your story (I was too engrossed in the narrative to pay much attention) but for example "Stevie walked past the park" not "passed", that would be "Max passed the mashed potatoes to Alex". Or something.
But as I said, tiny, tiny little nitpicks. I'm so happy I found this story, and incredibly glad I got to sit down and read the whole thing all the way through, which is exactly what I did. Read the whole thing from beginning to end. Now I think I'm going to go to your author page and see what else you've written. Thank you for this!
