Oh my god! This is getting REALLY interesting!
Author's Response: Thanks! Do come back when the next chapter is posted.
I really like where this story is going and I am certainly looking forward to finding out what happens next. Keep up the good work. The only criticism I have is that you need to work on naming your original characters......I mean "Elk Moose"? Anyway good luck with the fic and I will definitly be keeping up with it!
Author's Response: Thanks for the compliment :) I don't expect Elk to be a particularly major character, but I thought it would be a suitably silly name to contrast the sometimes-bombastic canon names. Too late to re-look at the names now, though, I guess. Do keep reading and reviewing!
Now I'm really curious about what's going on. Who's the person disguised as George? Is it George himself? What are they all doing in the cave? I'm glad to see that Scorpius showed up--right in time with the invisibility cloak. He's usually shown as someone who's sure of himself and this Scorpius doesn't seem to be that way. I can't wait until you update. Great chapter.
Author's Response: Hi, thanks for the kind words! I hope the fic lives up to your expectations. Regarding the characterisations of Rose and Scorpius, I've always thought that the next gen would be more a 'reaction' to their parents than 'replicas' as most people write them, so I've tried to write them as realistically and beleiveably as I could.
I saw this story in recent postings and thought I would check it out, especially since I enjoy stories about the next generation. I think you've made a very good start here. This is a different portrayal of Rose. She's usually written to be just like Hermione. This Rose is less academically inclined. You've raised some interesting questions--like where are Neville and Parvati going. We also like to think of the children of the Golden Trio as being very talented and you're showing that it might be difficult growing up in the shadow of Hermione Weasley. It would be hard to be her child and have so much to live up to. Great chapter.
