    Rose Weasley

    We currently seem to be lacking a thread for Rose Weasley, so I shall post one with some hopefully thought provoking questions.


    Do you think Rose Weasley would end up in Gryffindor or Ravenclaw? What personality traits do you believe she would have that would contribute to this sorting?

    Is it a strech to believe that Rose and Scorpius will become romantically involved? If not, would that at least be capible of being friends?

    Does Rose Weasley seem like the type to pick up Quidditch (does she take after her father's love or her mother's indifference)? What position would she play?

    Do believe Rose will share her mother's anxieties and rabid behavior when in comes to school work, or do you see her as being more confident in her own abilities as a student?

    What kind of relationship do you believe she has with her younger brother? With her cousins?

    Brand New Story!

    Do you think Rose Weasley would end up in Gryffindor or Ravenclaw? What personality traits do you believe she would have that would contribute to this sorting? I've always thought of her like Hermione, smart enough for Ravenclaw, but still going to Gryffindor.

    Is it a strech to believe that Rose and Scorpius will become romantically involved? If not, would that at least be capible of being friends?
    I think it's like Dramione, that it would only happen in fan-fiction. I do see them as friends, but not really good ones.

    Does Rose Weasley seem like the type to pick up Quidditch (does she take after her father's love or her mother's indifference)? What position would she play?
    I think she would be a Quidditch player, and she'd play Keeper.

    Do believe Rose will share her mother's anxieties and rabid behavior when in comes to school work, or do you see her as being more confident in her own abilities as a student? I see her as a James Potter mixed with Hermione. Laid back, but will study a fair bit.

    What kind of relationship do you believe she has with her younger brother? With her cousins?
    I think she has a good relationship with her cousins and brother. Don't know why, but I do.

    Honestly, we don't know much about her, so it could go either way. We do know that she has "her mother's brains" so one could say she is intelligent and belongs in Ravenclaw. But just because she's intelligent, it doesn't mean she honors intelligence over bravery. Remember, Hermione was in Gryffindor and that's where Rose gets her intelligence from. So she could easily be in Gryffindor. It wouldn't be much of stretch since children being in the same house as their parents is seen throughout the novels (Lily-James-Harry, Arthur-Molly-all their kids, Lucius-Narcissa-Draco). But then again, it's not necessary (Sirius, for instance).

    I see Rose in Gryffindor, personally, but I'd say put her wherever it suits your story best. If it's easier for her to be in Gryffindor or Ravenclaw (for your plot), then do that. Maybe as a Ravenclaw, Rose and Scorpius' relationship would be less rocky (since there wouldn't be any Gryffindor/Slytherin hate).

    Is it a strech to believe that Rose and Scorpius will become romantically involved? If not, would that at least be capible of being friends?

    No, I don't see this as a stretch. We know nothing of Rose or Scorpius, so their future is a blank slate. Personally, I think JK put them in the same year on purpose, to let our imaginations run wild. Besides, there is something very Romeo and Juliet about them together.

    And yes, I think it's possible for them to be friends. But I think something would have to happen to get them there. I doubt they would just become friends their first day of school like Harry and Ron. And depending on how Scorpius was raised, it may even be a rocky road, a Lily-Severus type of friendship.

    Does Rose Weasley seem like the type to pick up Quidditch (does she take after her father's love or her mother's indifference)? What position would she play?

    Maybe. Being raised by Ron, I think it's very plausible. I'd just be careful about who else is into Quidditch. I wouldn't make it so all of the Weasleys and Potters play on the same team, because that's just ridiculous. I see her as a Chaser. (Maybe a Chaser of Scorpius too :])

    Do believe Rose will share her mother's anxieties and rabid behavior when in comes to school work, or do you see her as being more confident in her own abilities as a student?

    I don't think she would be quite as crazy about schoolwork as Hermione. I think that Hermione worked so hard (partly) because she wanted to prove herself. She was Muggle-born, and she wanted to show that she belonged at Hogwarts as much as every pure-blood. So she studied hard and got top grades.

    I think that Rose wouldn't have that extra thirst to do that, because she would be raised in the Wizarding World and know she belonged at Hogwarts. But the studying is also part of Hermione's personality, so it could easily be in Rose's. I think that Rose will be inclined to study and read, she'll love to learn and spend time in the library, but I don't think she'll be quite so crazy about it. I can't see her studying for her NEWTs in her sixth year; I see her as more relaxed.

    What kind of relationship do you believe she has with her younger brother? With her cousins?

    Like most siblings, I think Rose and Hugo get closer as they age. They probably fought when they were younger, but after a few years at Hogwarts, got closer and became friends. Since Ron is very close to his family and Hermione is an only child, I doubt their children would be too far apart.

    As for her cousins, I see Rose very close to them. At least, I see her close to Ginny's and George's children. In the Epilogue, it seems Rose is close to Al, and I'm sure she is friendly with James and Lily.

    Personally, I have always favoured Rose as a Ravenclaw - although admittedly, this is partially because I adore Rose/Scorpius - but there is canon-ness for it!
    In the epilogue, we she that she's very eager about learning - she has her school robes on far before she needs to, and far before anyone else even feels the need to do so. We know that she is supposedly able to beat Scorpius in every test (Ron wouldn't say that if Rose wasn't smart - he's not that good at sarcasm! xD). Although I'm a believer in Ravenclaws not being entirely characterised by the 'school is so amazing!' philosophy, it works in this case, and just by her manner I get the sense of her being a bit of a show-off with her knowledge, very clever, etc., and although Hermione was also very clever know-it-all-ish, Rose's manner at this stage is different than Hermione's was, especially considering she was raised knowing about magic and things and Hermione was not. It was only natural for a Muggle-born to be curious and excited about magic - but Rose, who is accustomed to the idea of magic already, doesn't inherently need that curiosity - rather, it seems that she just has an abnormally great thirst for knowledge. And, of course, the thirst for knowledge, whether or not in a scholarly manner, is a very Ravenclaw trait!
    /stops psychoanalysing again

    But, like Kask said, the whole kids-in-parent's-houses thing could always come into play, it's just that Rose seems a bit too insecure overall to be in Gryffindor to me, just reading into her minimal lines of description [: It'd be pretty easy for her to be insecure, too, whereas neither of her parents had any major reason to be (both Ron and Hermione obviously had small bits of insecurity, but not the inherent insecurity I see Rose as having - more nervous than insecure). I don't think Gryffindor would really be that great of a house for any insecure person (Albus' insecurity is an entirely different matter, but that's another thread entirely).

    Is it a stretch to believe that Rose and Scorpius will become romantically involved? If not, would that at least be capable of being friends?
    No.
    Not that I'm biased, or anything.


    xD

    -points to avatar-

    Anyway, I see the Next Gen kids as a sort of let's-break-away-from-everything-that's-been-holding-the-previous-generation-back deal. We know that Draco and Harry have come to a grudging compromise of sorts - they'll never like each other, but they're civil in the very least (I don't think Ron would forgive Draco as thoroughly - he'd definitely hate him more than Harry would - but they'd still have that grudging sort of compromise). <--- So that spiel was basically saying that taking that stance, there's no way Draco could really be so horrible, Death-Eater-ish, and he probably wouldn't raise his child the way Lucius raised him (note: I'm not a supporter of the whole Lucius-abused-Draco idea - we know both his parents cared for him very much - I just mean he wasn't raised with as much prejudice and things). Scorpius would have prejudice, of course, but I doubt it would be to the extent Draco had it, and I doubt that he would really know that it was offensive or 'bad.' Sort of a learning-through-association deal - he wouldn't know that, for example, the word 'Mudblood' was bad, as Draco did, just that it was something his parents would say that meant 'Muggle-born.'
    Am I making sense?
    But yes, I think that neither of them, whichever houses you put them in, will really have so much solid house divisions (I get the feeling that those house lines have faded a bit from their strict drawing since the Final Battle, anyway) and prejudices and preconceived ideas about each other and/or their respective families, and so they could become friends (or not, if that's what you like), and, of course, lovers [:

    -squees over the pure awesomeness of the Chocolate ship-
    ^^ Chocolate is what we have named the Scorpius/Rose ship. Because their names sound like a really awesome chocolate bar xD ^^

    Does Rose Weasley seem like the type to pick up Quidditch (does she take after her father's love or her mother's indifference)? What position would she play?
    I think she would like Quidditch - but not the the extent of Ron, or anyone. She'll like flying, she'll like being in the air, she'll just not be obsessed with it, or on a team or anything. Some things are more important to her, I guess.

    And honestly, I cannot explain my reasoning for that xD

    Do believe Rose will share her mother's anxieties and rabid behaviour when in comes to school work, or do you see her as being more confident in her own abilities as a student?
    I think she'll like learning - but not necessarily school. I see her as a bit of a procrastinator with her work - but she does so because she knows that she'll get it done, and get it done well. I definitely do not see her as a mini-Hermione. I like to think that she'll, well, maybe not be -confident- in her abilities, because as I said, I see her as a bit inherently insecure, but she'll know that even if she doesn't do the homework the minute it is set, doesn't write down every single thing the teacher is saying, etc., she'll still get good marks and still be an intelligent student, and the professors can't say anything about her not necessarily being a perfect student in class (even though she'll still be a relatively good one) because she does the work, and does it well, because SHE KNOWS that she is naturally, inherently smart. Hermione was not inherently intelligent - she was studious, and she worked for those grades. I see Rose as being very naturally intelligent (also with the Ravenclaw thing). She works in class - she doesn't have to, but she does because like Hermione she enjoys school and things - but when it comes down to it, she doesn't need to, and she can do all the work independently of class and the things she learned there.
    I see her as a bit better at practical and applicable magic/general smarts than with written and 'test' sort of work.

    What kind of relationship do you believe she has with her younger brother? With her cousins?
    Maybe it's the influence my triplets have had on me, but I see Rose and Hugo getting along very well when they were younger, but they sort of grow apart as the years go on. HOWEVER, they are still each other's confidants when need be, because their growing-apart-ness is overpowered by the fact that even though they don't get along, they are often the only person the other can talk to.
    This is both because that's the way I see it work with a lot of people, but also that, Rose being older, I can kind of see her really wanting to have a sort of power over him - both because older children often feel like they deserve that 'right', as proven by science, and also because her insecurity complex that I am so fond of would make her really, really, need to have that sort of power, over something, anything - and Hugo gives her that.
    For a time, anyway - because while I don't think Hugo has such a dominant personality as, say, Lily, I don't think he'd really appreciate his big sister being all controlling of him and things (although I do see him liking it when they were, like, four and six xD it's cute, then, being attached to your big sister). But even though they wouldn't really get along too well, because they would always have conflicting ideas about, mostly, whatever Hugo should be doing, among other things, they would still trust each other with a lot of things they wouldn't necessarily want to tell their parents or their friends.

    With her cousins, I think Rose and Al are very close. I think that they would sort of latch onto each other, especially in the beginning, with Rose's insecurity and Al's just general nervousness. I've always seen them as close, anyway, but I think that would maybe magnify the close-ness. They're very different, but also very similar at the same time.
    /no sense

    With her other cousins, I do think Rose cares about them, and loves them all, because I see her as a very caring person, but I see them as getting on her nerves easily, also. I don't imagine she gets along too well with James - he teases Al too much, and Rose and Al are in my mind more like brother and sister than cousins - or with anyone else who messes with him, really, which I imagine many of them do. I do think, however, that because she cares about them, if anyone ever hurt or insulted any of her cousins, even unintentionally, she would be a very passionate defender of said insulted cousin.




    EDIT: Wow, I feel like I killed the thread! xD

    DOUBLE EDIT: Okay, I know it was long, guys, but don't feel intimidated! /sarcasm -likes this character- I want to know what other people think about her!

    *does not feel intmidated*



    Do you think Rose Weasley would end up in Gryffindor or Ravenclaw? What personality traits do you believe she would have that would contribute to this sorting? Gah. Well, I mean, we see Rose for, like, five minutes. In those five minutes, Rose seems a bit insecure, but it's her first school day, so who can blame her? The only thing we learn about her personality is Ron saying "Thank God you inheirited your mother's brains" (or something like, am too lazy to find book ). So that would point to Ravenclaw. But I think that fic writers can go any way with this, because we know nothing at all. But I personally prefer Ravenclaw, just because it seems silly to "inheirit" a house.

    Is it a strech to believe that Rose and Scorpius will become romantically involved? If not, would that at least be capible of being friends? Rose/Scorpius is slowly but surely becoming my OTP. *grins widely* I think that Jo put in that comment from Ron for a reason! Also, Draco probably really wants to stay on Harry's good side after the war. He had probably encouraged Scorpius to be nice to the Weasley-Potters, but probably not get too close. The first few years Scorpius would probably heed his fathers advice to treat the Weasley-Potters with respect. In later years, he might start to ignore the whole "not too close thing". Another thing- when Ron told Rose about Scorpius, he made her notice him. So now Rose is aware of Scorpius and the fact that she must beat him in every test. AND as others have said before me, the whole House thing might not be as serious now. So Scorpius and Rose might be a bit more open to a possible romance than their parents.

    If this isn't a good base for romance, I don't know WHAT is.

    Before I go on, can I just, like, really quickly LAUGH at the name Scorpius? I mean who names their kid after a poisonus insect?


    Does Rose Weasley seem like the type to pick up Quidditch (does she take after her father's love or her mother's indifference)? What position would she play? I doubt it. Rose, in the epilouge, is presented as a shy, quiet bookworm. I don't think that she would be all that interested in Quidditch, to be honest.

    Do believe Rose will share her mother's anxieties and rabid behavior when in comes to school work, or do you see her as being more confident in her own abilities as a student? Absolutely. Judging by Rose's obvious insecurity in the epilouge, she's probably going to stress over her schoolwork. I also think that Rose will be somewhat of a bookworm with a love for learning. After all, she's Hermione's daughter. Something must have rubbed off

    What kind of relationship do you believe she has with her younger brother? With her cousins? Well, with Hugo I suspect the typical older sister/younger brother relationship, which I think is half love, half disgust. And with her cousins... let's just take the ones we know:
    James: James appears to be confident and I bit arrogant. I think that the much more serious Rose would find him annoying, and he would probably feed off of that.
    Albus: I definitely see the grounds for a good friendship here. I mean, the two have grown up together planning going to Hogwarts together. I can only imagine the two of them sticking together throughout all their years at Hogwarts.
    Lily: I think that Lily is a lot more outgoing than Rose. Therefor, I believe that Rose will look down on Lily as someone that she ought to protect.

    All of this is based on the epilouge and my personal love of Rose/Scorpius
    You'll love it.

    Well, there have been a lot of clashing viewpoints when it comes to Rose's character. Namely how she seems split between her Wealey blood and her Granger blood. She seems either the redheaded Gryffindor who is good at school, but lives for Quidditch, or the more reclusive Ravenclaw with her nose stuck in a book, much like her mother, who barely knows the rules of the game.

    What I'm putting forth is, why does Rose seem to be the one Weasley who cuts away from the pack? All the other Weasley grandchildren, people seem to be perfectly fine with making them Quidditch point-scoring Gryffindor, but what is it that makes Rose so different? What makes her so special that she is allowed all these differences? All we hear Ron say at the beginning is that Rose gor Hermione's brain, but that in itself does not make her Hermione's carbon copy. Being intellegent doesn't necessarily make someone a good student (ask my Spanish teachers...and chemistry...and trig).

    Is it because we were given the oppurtunity of knowing her mother from the very beginning, so it is easier to visualize Hermione's character traits being passed down, or is it something in Hermione's character itself? Does she seem like the type to have a perticularily strong influence over her daughter's influence? Enough so to override all those years of Weasley characteristics?

    Brand New Story!

    I think she would be in Gryffindor. Hermione and Ron and all other Weasleys were in Gryffindor. She has the brain to get into Ravenclaw, but would probably end up in Gryffindor because of family.

    Is it a strech to believe that Rose and Scorpius will become romantically involved? If not, would that at least be capible of being friends?
    I think this is basically Dramione. Only in fanfiction and never canon. They might be a bit more civil than Hermione and Draco were, but all that depends of how much blood purity stuff Scorpius has. If Scorpius isn't at all like Draco they might be friends, but romance probably not. Draco and Ron would throw a fit if that happens.

    Does Rose Weasley seem like the type to pick up Quidditch (does she take after her father's love or her mother's indifference)? What position would she play?
    I think Rose will be a fan a Quidditch not indifferent, but just likes to watch. Also she will play with her brother's and cousins during the summer playing chaser position. She might try out for the team when she's older, but either won't make it or be a chaser.

    Do believe Rose will share her mother's anxieties and rabid behavior when in comes to school work, or do you see her as being more confident in her own abilities as a student?

    I think Rose will be a student who does well, but doesn't have to try too hard. She can be an O/E student, but doesn't push herself very hard. She might have an A or P along the way, but overall will do well.

    What kind of relationship do you believe she has with her younger brother? With her cousins?
    I think she will have a good relationship with them and this will probably result in her becoming a tomboy. I think she will have the same thing that happened to Hermione. Becomes good friends with a bunch of guys and then they don't think of her as a girl. Like what happened with Hermione and Ron in fourth year.

    What I'm putting forth is, why does Rose seem to be the one Weasley who cuts away from the pack? All the other Weasley grandchildren, people seem to be perfectly fine with making them Quidditch point-scoring Gryffindor, but what is it that makes Rose so different? What makes her so special that she is allowed all these differences?
    I think this happens because the Weasley's are all guys except for Ginny, Rose, and Lily. Also I think Percy might have been the last Weasley who was thought of being smart. All the others are Quidditch jocks, pranksters, or just take after their parents and other relatives. Rose being the only girl besides Lily is torn between taking after her mother or her father. Lily isn't at school yet and both her parents were Quidditch players. Rose could be a Quidditch fan or player like Ron or just go with books like Hermione.

    Do you think Rose Weasley would end up in Gryffindor or Ravenclaw? What personality traits do you believe she would have that would contribute to this sorting?

    I personally feel she'd end up in Gryffindor. She probably wouldn't mind being in Ravenclaw until her father told her that they'd disinherit if she wasn't in Gryffindor. Yes, Ron was joking, but to an overly nervous eleven-year-old, she probably took some of it to heart. She, being a Weasley, has a lot of Gryffindor traits (most likely), and I think it would be her opinion that would lead the Sorting Hat to making her a Gryff.

    Is it a strech to believe that Rose and Scorpius will become romantically involved? If not, would that at least be capible of being friends?

    Maybe it's because I'm fond of this ship, but I do think they could. As Gemma Hawk said, JKR probably threw that line in for a reason. I think at first they'd fight over who had the better grades (I can so see Draco telling his son to beat Granger's daughter at tests), but then they'd form a friendship, and then... <3

    But I don't think the Inter-house difficulties would be a problem (if Scorpius was in a different house, of course)- Harry has probably told his whole family (not just his son) that your House doesn't matter, and that they'd be proud even if Al was a Slytherin or if Rose was a Ravenclaw.


    Does Rose Weasley seem like the type to pick up Quidditch (does she take after her father's love or her mother's indifference)? What position would she play?

    I think she'd be very fond of it, and perhaps have a couple posters hanging up in her room (the Chudley Cannons, of course, and maybe a Holyhead Harpies or two), but not play on the school team until her later years, when some of the positions have cleared up. She'd probably be a Chaser (a Keeper sounds a tad cliched), and before her playing days she'd always come to games cheering and wearing lots of red.

    Do believe Rose will share her mother's anxieties and rabid behavior when in comes to school work, or do you see her as being more confident in her own abilities as a student?

    She might freak out if she's only got a couple hours to do an essay or something, but I don't think she's similar to her mother in that way. There's only one Hermione, and I feel that even though Rose most likely does well in school and gets good grades, she tends to relax about exams and homework and concentrate on helping someone else or having fun.

    What kind of relationship do you believe she has with her younger brother? With her cousins?

    Well, we know she's good friends with Albus (they seemed close in the Epilogue), and I think it's safe to say she's close with her whole family. I see her as the type who's friends are mostly made up of cousins and close families friends (i.e. the Longbottoms/Luna's family). She'd also very protective of Hugo, and would do anything for her family.

    What I'm putting forth is, why does Rose seem to be the one Weasley who cuts away from the pack? All the other Weasley grandchildren, people seem to be perfectly fine with making them Quidditch point-scoring Gryffindor, but what is it that makes Rose so different? What makes her so special that she is allowed all these differences?

    Hmm, it's probably because most people see her as a mini-Hermione, and Hermione didn't play Quidditch, so they assume Rose wouldn't either.

    It's a very good question, but I don't think she's that different from her cousins. Of course, she has her differences, but I think all the grandkids mesh together in one little category- they all share some of the same traits. I don't think she's the only one different- people might have Lucy a Hufflepuff, have Roxanne afraid of heights, or Victoire obsessed with the Gobstones club. But, yes, the majority of writers do seem to have Rose the odd one out.

I don't think she's the only one different- people might have Lucy a Hufflepuff, have Roxanne afraid of heights, or Victoire obsessed with the Gobstones club. But, yes, the majority of writers do seem to have Rose the odd one out.

    What I'm putting forth is, why does Rose seem to be the one Weasley who cuts away from the pack? All the other Weasley grandchildren, people seem to be perfectly fine with making them Quidditch point-scoring Gryffindor, but what is it that makes Rose so different? What makes her so special that she is allowed all these differences?

    I think that you're making an interesting point. I think that the reason that Rose is so speacial, as you put it, is that she is the unknown Weasley. In a way, all the next-gen kids are that way. Like, Albus, for example. I've read fics where he's in Slytherin. I think that ALL the Weasley children are portrayed differently in different fics. That's what's so great about them- you can do almost anything.

    But. I do see, now, that it's sort of weird to have Rose barely care about Quidditch. I STILL don't think that she's a point-scoring Gryffindor, but she ought to at least be interested. Considering the fact that she's probably grown up playing, watching and hearing about Quidditch, I think that her opinions on the sport can go one of three ways:

    1. As some of you have said, Rose becomes a Quidditch player for her House, and is very enthusiastic about it.
    2. Rose does not play Quidditch, but reads about it and attends games with enthusiasm and team spirit.
    3. Rose HATES Quidditch. Think about it. In some families, especially in Europe, soccer is up there with God. If you have grown up this way, and yet you don't really have an talent for the sport, you are probably going to end up completely detesting it. I think that this is a very valid possibility for Rose, considering that most of her family probably plays Quidditch as much as possible.


    Anyway. That's all I have to say on the subject
    You'll love it.
