At this point I love Scorpius so much I am starting to wonder if Rose is good enough for him...
"...It's as if he's a different person."
"He is." War sometimes changed people.
"And your grandfather?"
Scorpius studied the pattern of roses on the teacup. "He isn't."
Marvelous, succinct, revealing... I give it an 11 out of ten...
Author's Response: Thank you for liking the way I wrote that (I almost put succinctness but it looked funny :D)!
interesting chapter....very nicely written and loved the alice in wonderland and P&P quote...one question though. I'm a bit confused as to who's Lysander, Loki and Lorcan
You first met them in ch 7, so it has been awhile, :). Scorpius found Lysander's toad Loki when he'd hopped away in a courtyard, so on the train Lorcan and Lysander gave Scorpius the toadstone in thanks. When Scorpius asked if they were cousins, Rose said they were honorary, they called their mum and dad Aunt Luna and Uncle Rolf.
aww...they're so cute! haha....and ron is the typical weasley dad plus hugo's the mini ron...I wonder what Lucius would do when he finds out. I hope there's no major rebellion against their relationship. I'm sure the Weasleys and Potters would be hospitable towards Scorpius...but it's the Malfoy's I'm worried about. This fic has already got me pondering so much...:)
Author's Response: Lucius will not be thrilled, lol. Thank you for pondering, and I hope you like what happens!
I thought of a long silver earring and end of the earring got stuck in his hair
I like the way you think. :)
omg thank you so much for recommending me your story! this is getting more and more interesting by the minute. At first I thought perhaps i'd imagine scorpius/rose as draco/hermione but i can actually picture them as the next generation...lol...great fic
Author's Response: Thank you so much for reading! I'm so happy you can picture them as the next generation, and not incarnations. I appreciate that!
THIS WAS FANTASTIC! i love all of your stories, and getting this update completely made my date! great job!
Author's Response: Aw, thank you! Your review made my day shinier, too! :)
No note after this one? Excellent chapter!
I wonder if I accidentally edited it off. That isn't like me, lol. Thank you!
I had to squeeze in one more chapter before I went to sleep. Another good one, although not too much happened. The character building was very nice, I like how Scorpius is very analytical.
I have to let you know that I actually chuckled at "Miley Siren", that's pretty clever.
Also I have to admit that my first thought was that Rose was wearing either big loop earrings (which I am not a fan of and can't actually picture that on her very well) or maybe dangley-droopey ones, something that actually would get caught in Scorpius' hair. But to be completely honest I'd imagine Rose wearing something smaller, more elegant, and sensible yet attractive, like diamond stud earrings.
I thought Amantillado sounded familiar but I can't believe I didn't make the Poe connection! I consider myself fairly knowledgeable when it comes to Poe and have read many of his works and I attend the same university that he did (that is until he has kicked out for gambling away his tuition money)!
Author's Response: Poe kicked out for gambling away tuition money? I didn't know that. He was an interesting guy, wasn't he? Thanks for sharing that...and your thoughts on earrings! :)
Another well put-together chapter. I grinned at Albus' "old mum" quip and decided I especially enjoyed that part even before Rose responded to it. I feel like it does a great job of illustrating the relationship between the cousins.
Author's Response: Before Scorpius, ;), Albus is the one who brings out Rose's playful side, so thank you for liking that!
Wow, your writing is so crisp and clear! I really enjoyed this chapter and felt like I was back in Hogwartz the way Rowling used to put me there! I look forward to reading this series!
Author's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful compliment! I really want you to be the viewpoint character when you read, to see through Scorpius or Rose's eyes and experience what happens along with them, so you made my day! *hugs*
Merlin's twisted knickers!!!!
Honestly, men will be men. A cheating Teddy Lupin is not something I'd be stunned. As a cheating Harry Potter. Throw hexes and jinxes at me at will, people.
There's an ol' saying around here that goes: "De los cuernos y de la muerte nadie se escapa."
Translation: from being cheated on and death there's no possible escape.
I enjoyed the perspective of Rosie totally head over heals for a decent guy, however. And, course him being too obvlivious to notice when he shattered her heart to pieces.
I like the way Rosie and Scorpious understand each other and fit like the Ying Yang. They really are perfect for each other.
I missed what was it that Lily went 'Oh Merlin' about... Still wondering.
And of course, can't wait to see what has grandad Lucius ready for poor Scorps. Kuddos for an awesome chap, as usual!!!
Author's Response: Whoa, and I thought Ben Franklin's only things certain are death and taxes line was depressing! It'll be a couple of chapters before you find out what Lily went "Oh Merlin" about...but it's good. :D
I like the comic refs...
But Why did you end it like that? Now I'm checking every minute!
A very eye sore
Author's Response: It wasn't me who ended the chapter like that. It was my evil twin. LOL. It had to be done, :D, but I pinky promise not to have a cliffie next chapter...although you'll still be wanting the next one asap, *cackles*.
This is deff. the best storie on the sight by far, every time there is and update, no matter where I am I stop and read it. :)
And I absolutly love scorpius, I love how malfoy has raise him, to be how he is.
I love this story so much, I live for the updates.
Author's Response: You made my day, telling me you stop to read! Lucius was hard core DE, but Draco wasn't, as Jo showed very clearly in the crying-to-Myrtle scene. :D I wanted to show how he raised his son differently. :)
love it...this is my favorite story. i just can't get enough of rose and scorpius - so cute together.
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I agree with you, :D, and think they complement each other, having so many things in common that aren't discernable on the surface.
loved it! oooh a little jalousy from Scorpius feels really good a reward after a day of studying at home! i really enjoyed that part. im eagerly waiting for the next chapter :D ... as a matter of fact your story is my first pick from the General Fics and im just so glad i changed from Romance Fics to this category, cause i got to discover ur story and i love it. Scorpius is just sooooo cool /
cheers and see u next chap, keep up the good work :D
Author's Response: I'm glad you looked in this category for stories, but I hope you don't abandon romance entirely. It's a lovely thing (and crosses categories, lol).
Teddy? Rose? Creepy. He's, like, eight years older then she is!
*cough* Anyway, great chapter, as always. One complait -- it seemed a little foggy, if you know what I mean. Like I was seeing everything through a haze. Am I making any sense?
"Alice in Wonderland," Scorpius said. "If everybody minded their own business, the world would go around a great deal faster than it does."
*squees in happiness* That is so awesome.
Rose let go of Scorpius' fingers. "There's barbecue chicken too," she said. "Do you like—" Her face heated again. She couldn't say breasts, legs, or thighs! "—chicken?" she ended lamely.
*gasps for air* So. Freakin'. Funny.
Teddy's father was 12 years or so older than his mother. Are Tonks and Remus creepy? No way!
Hmm...I don't know why it seemed foggy unless it was the italics used for the flashback...or there was some smoke from a hookah-loving caterpillar. :D
Thank you for liking those bits!
So let me make sure I have this straight... Scorpius has actually noticed Rosie since 5th year, so he really does like her, and Rosie obviously really likes him, but they haven't actually told each other they really like each other yet???
I am starting to get p-o'd at the bunch of them. Give the poor boy a break, please. And that owl cannot have anything good in his claws...
Scorpius liked Rose...but he didn't admit it to himself (he was just watching her in class out of detatched, impersonal interest, LOL) and the more she's learned the more she likes about him, but nope, they haven't actually told each other that yet, heh.
The Weasleys are cautious, but not unreasonable, and you are very right about that owl!
i forgot to say that i really like the way u created the caracters, especially Scorpius; exactly how he should be, he is my favorite caracter so far! u did a really goood job on his upbringing too: the way he has been brought up with being told bad things about Harry... it really fits to the image i had in mind.
so thank you for that, i'll b eagerly waiting for the next chapters :D
Author's Response: Thank you for telling me that! I wanted to show that Draco and Astoria have given Scorpius a much different upbringing than Draco had, but at the same time, Lucius has made sure Scorpius is aware of his "heritage" and aware of the family history with Harry Potter.
i have read through this story in one time; not being able to get it out of my head!! it's really good, just what i wanted to read (a goood romance between Scorpius and Rose) and it exceeds my expectations! good work! i cant wait for more!!
i have one question though: are Scorpius and Rose going out for real?? because after the kisses and the way the act towards each other..i mean, is it still an act or are they going out?
Author's Response: Thank you for the lovely compliment! There's a line in the next chapter that answers your question. It's "The line between pretence and reality was blurring." They started with a pretence but the feelings that are developing are real. :)
Rolf is a Westley version... But of course! A romantic man, all Luna needed!
I like how Scorpy (huhuhu read that in nowhere and loved the silly nick, just like Drakie Pooh XD) took in the presence of Harry. Like sneering but at the same time trying not to be prejuice.
And that conversation with Luna was rather creepy! I missed her!
'bout Weasley and Potter families, gosh it seems like a biiiiig deal to fall for a Weasley girl!! With all those lions as uncles, father and grands!!!!
Im falling in love with this story, please dont take soooo long with your oh-so-mean cliffies!!!!!
My inner Scorpius commanded me never to shorten his name, lol, but of course you are free to call him (and his handsome father) whatever you like!
Absolutely, it's a big deal when a guy wants to date a Weasley girl. They have to be approved...or at least interviewed...by the family first, heh.
