I kind of figured you'd bring back Bellatrix after reading your bio--I think you said she was one of your favorite characters. I'm working on my first piece of fan fiction which is a story about Bellatrix before she became evil and how she became evil. I don't have enough of it written (only 5 chapters) to feel comfortable posting any of it yet. But soon. I loved the letter from Draco and Scorpius' reaction. I've always been fascinated by the Malfoys--I don't agree with them but that doesn't stop my fascination. I was thinking that Hagrid must be getting pretty old by now. It's good to know he'll live for a long time. Great chapter. I look forward to your next post.
Author's Response: Haha, I just had to bring back Bella. She's too kick-ass to stay away! And yeah, couldn't bring myself to age Hagrid. I worked his age out, and when it became a serious situation with the number, I just increased his life expectancy. Gotta love magic and fanfiction combined! Sorry, Chapter Four's been barely touched for a month. I just haven't had the time to write more. I'm currently juggling seven assignments plus a bunch of other work! But its my number one priority when its all done!
Just as I was thinking that something has to go wrong--something bad has to happen--because you can't just let these kids have a normal happy life, then boom, something happens. I'm glad Scorpius has come around but he still hasn't gotten the angry owl from his parents:D I'm really enjoying this story so far. I hope you update frequently. Great chapter.
Author's Response: Yeah, I had to be cruel to be kind. I just posted Chapter Three up, and boy, does it actually EXPLAIN a few things. We're formally introduced to the Illuminati, Scorpius gets an owl from Daddy dearest and the Nina/Claudia situation heats up, with entertaining results! Thanks for the positive feedback :)
I love "next generation" stories so when I saw this in the recent section I had to check it out. I always love to see who the Hogwarts faculty will be. What will the Malfoys say when they find out that Scorpius is a Gryffindor. What will the Potter/Weasleys say when they find out a Malfoy is in Gryffindor. Great chapter.
Oops, sorry. I meant Gryffindor, not Slytherin.
I've just remembered that I wanted to say that I love the idea of Scorpius being in Slytherin. Makes the story that much more interesting! ;)
Author's Response: Wow... I'm extremely flattered! Thats just about the best thing any author wants to hear. You've now inspired me to work harder at the chapters. Chapter Three has been sent away to one of my betas, so as soon as its back, expect an update! If you haven't already, add this story to your favourites, so every time you log in you can just go into the Manage Favourites section in Account Info and it will give you updates when your favourite stories have new chapters posted. And yes, I love the idea of Scorpius in Gryffindor as well. Its such a cliche, but its one that I love. Some interesting stuff happens to Scorpius in Chapter Two, so stay tuned! Keep reviewing! I'd also love to hear any of your suggestions - even if I don't use them, it'd give me more to work with. ~ Jordana :)
This is, quite possibly, the beginning to the best fanfiction I have ever read! I read the first chapter soon after it came out and it had no reviews; I loved it! I have been trying to make an account just to review this, but the site hasn't let me until just now. I have been checking just about every day for the next chapter, and here it is! I love it, don't stop. I'll definitely be following this story!
Congrats! I knew it would get up, it was just so great, and I wasn't even the one beta-ing it. Good luck with getting chapter three up!
YAY! You got it up. I knew you could do it. Send me the rest of the chapters when you want. Good luck with the rst of your story. I still love it as much as I did when I was beta-ing it.
Author's Response: Thanks, Sarah! The second chapter's in the queue, but can you do the third? I'll probably PM you the details and stuff. And yeah, thank god I got it up! I felt so proud of myself when I logged in to MNFF and my story was on the Recent toolbar on the left-hand side. It was the best feeling.... *grins*
