Aww, Paige! Your summer seems cursed! That truly sucks. I hope everything goes well in your surgery, and I hope the poor pup's tummy gets bettter. If only it was hard-wired into brains not to eat plastic... >.>
Lovely updates. I've had some catching up to do, but it was worth the wait. Take care of yourself, and I hope to see you around soon.
You might have something there, Jess....a microchip to hardwire dog brains into not eating plastic! I'd pay. The morning after I got home from the hospital I heard something suspicious in the kitchen, dragged my medicated arse in to look, and found Courage happily gnawing on the plastic handle of a steak knife!
Thank you for catching up, I'll try to give you something to read sooner rather than later. ;D
Get well soon dear writer and I hope your puppy is better as well.
Love this story!!
This chapter was great! Pretty action packed! Interesting... while I was reading I could feel Scorpious rush and despair as if it was my own! He had exceptionally quick thinking!
BTW, is Lucius INSANE!?!? Sending Scorpious to such a dangerous place? What was his intention to get Rose killed or to finish them both!?
I wonder if there are more survivors than just this Rhys character? (cool name, BTW)
This just keeps getting interesting... too bad Rose and Scorps didn't have their romantic night together...
^.^ Great chap!
Thank you! Courage is doing better than I am, heh, and you're right about Scorpius, but a lot of men go into Action Man mode during stressful times, which is more productive than emotional wreck mode, although there's an intensity that tells you they're teetering on the edge.
I'm going to start writing on paper since long stints of typing are out for now. Wish me luck and readable penmanship! ;)
oh i am getting tetchy... :) trying to keep the excitement in control.
Author's Response: It's a good kind of tetchy, like the kind I feel recovering and not being able to sit and type for more than a few minutes at a time. Grrrr... :D
You are such a tease. First, I beg you, pitifully, and humble myself and it's "no, no, no--It's gonna be a one-shot." Then, four chapters later with the evilest of cliffies at the end, you're still teasing us. Gods, what a brat. Now was she transported somewhere else or did she go by herself? The lizard idea is adorable. I caught myself going "awww" while I was reading. And, what a cute name--Izzy. My St. Bernard was named Ezrah and we often called her Ezzie. It's a nice homey name. Excellent chapter. Now get in there and write :D
Author's Response: Stephen King sees writing as excavating a story, like a fossil, so I guess what I thought was a tiny one shot turned out to be a bigger beast. Your Ezzy sounds like a sweetie. It's interesting how you've had big and small dogs. Any medium sized ones, or do you stick with the contrasts? :D
I don't know if I'm happy or sad that they didn't bring birth control. I guess they didn't have sex on the brain if they didn't think enough to bite the bullet and make arrangements. You are so creative with their preparations for the night. It's a sad observation that I don't think I've ever loved anyone that much that I would've wanted to be stranded with them. (I lied--maybe once:P) Now I'd be sure to whine that there's nothing to eat but fruit and sweet bread. I'm not a good camper. Excellent chapter.
Oh, they were thinking about it (hums Beach Boys' Wouldn't it be Nice) but things didn't work out as planned.
It isn't a sad observation, it's honest! After all, Muggles don't have all those spells to make things comfy-cozy. ;)
You know, I'm going to think the best of Lucius and believe that he's a romantic at heart and is trying to do the best for his grandson. Scorpius even said that this may be better than what he had planned. Also, it might be good for the Malfoy's to hook up with one of the members of the Golden Trio. What's driving me crazy right now is that I have a niggling memory of what Rose's secret is but I can't pull the memory forward. I'm sure you'll tell us eventually. Excellent chapter.
Author's Response: If you remember the Lucius pov poem Interfering Grandfather, he was trying to meddle, not matchmake, heh, but the best laid plans of snakes and men . . . . ;)
I had to read this again to prepare to read the two new chapters. And, I'm too well trained to not write a review. I hope Courage is as easy to train:D I loved this even more the second time around. I don't know why but my favorite part is the conversation around the Slytherin breakfast table. It's so light and easy and it's good to think that after the War, things really did settle down. I also like envisioning Scorpius and Rose landing on the beach. Even though it's a hot summer day I still love the thought of a hot summer island beach. I want to go. Excellent chapter.
Author's Response: I think you're just considerate and know how much writers appreciate feedback! The war ended in 1998 and this is set in 2024, so there have been 26 years for Slytherins to change their image. There's still prejudice (and some of it has cause) but I think most people judge more on actions than house labels.
brilliant piece... specially after the wait..
Author's Response: Thank you for being so nice after waiting. Some people would be tetchy. :D
brilliant piece... specially after the wait..
Author's Response: I feel horrible about the wait. The next one won't be as long.
Thanks for the update! You made my day :) Hope you tell us where Rose was summoned to soon!!! Is this a case of 'no good deed goes unpunished'?
also - do we get to find out what was on Izzy? "I think this is blood and I want to test to see what kind"?
Hope you're days are pretty quite so you loads of time to write! Now, aint that selfish of me? ;)
Author's Response: You're not selfish, you're an encouraging reader! Murphy's Law (or Sod's Law) kicked in so my days were the opposite of peaceful, d'oh, but I'm almost finished anyway, so Murphy can sod off and you'll find out something very interesting . . . dun, dun, dun . . . ;)
wow amazing chapter i wonder who is izzy's friend. And where is rose being summoned too. Will scorpious realize she is leaving before she is gone? Can't wait to see more
Author's Response: I'm about finished with the next chapter so I can tell you that no, Scorpius won't realize she's left, and I felt really sorry for him. :D
Nice!! Love the prequel and this sequel.
Beutifully written (and likely to happen).
Author's Response: Ta, thanks! I've started the next chapter, and the drama's pretty intense, so I'm crossing my fingers that I'll get lots of writing time and update soon. ^_^
Love it love it love it!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
ps. chapter four's up. ;)
Ahhh! I've been anxiously checking this for weeks. So glad it was finally updated. Definitely worth the wait.
I love this story.
Author's Response: Thank you for checking back! This summer has been the WORST for real life inconsiderately getting in the way of fan fiction, but I pinkie promise that I'm working on the story, even if it's just a few minutes a day. :)
i was having the worst day possible. then your story came up in the updates.
bad day is a HISTORY.
best line ' just because u are paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get u'
Author's Response: I'm so sorry you're having a day from hell! Have you had any chocolate to counteract it? :) Thank you for liking that line. I don't know who originally came up with that saying, but it really fits the Malfoys to a tee.
That's good, I didn't want it to end so fast! (Referring to your author's note of course)
This looks like a great Our Little Secret 2. I hope it's as long as the last one!
Author's Response: Thank you for not wanting the story to end quickly! It won't be as long as the first story, but it won't be the last. Rose and Scorpius are just starting the adventure of their lives together, and I have loads of story ideas. :)
Ohhhhhhhh.... It's just sooo perfect!!! My sweet darlings... I do hope there's nothing too kreepy crawling about our kiddoes.....
BTW, being away on a deserted island you be so muh fun if you were a wizard! Not fair!! We humble muggles would get eaten by mosquitoes, sunburnt, not have potty or showers and heaven knows what else!! I resent their paradise a bit, I must confess. But I must admit, I'm waiting to see how things turn out...
Author's Response: Peeing in the bushes using leaves for toilet tissue, sunburnt and slapping mosquitoes wouldn't be conducive to romance, would it? Being a wizard rocks, no doubt about it. :D
OMG THOR!!!! Sorry, he's one of my fav Nordic Myth gods. I squealed when I read it. Great chapter. Poor Scorpius...his vacation isn't turning out to be how he expected it at all.
Yay for you liking Norse mythology! I compared Draco to Frey in a fic once, heh.
This holiday is nothing like the sightseeing and "togetherness" he'd planned, but sometimes good things come from unexpected twists. ;)
I'm excited to see what comes next. You have a real talent for giving enough information to satisfy the reader but enough suspense to keep the reader interested and the end game a mystery.
Author's Response: Hey! I'm excited to see your review! :) Thank you for the compliment, that's what I want, for you to know what the characters know . . . and wonder what they'll discover next! ^_~
^_^ Hehehe... Nice cliffie... I bet Scorpy will loose his temper just a tiny little bit there...
This is great!!! ^_^
Thank you so much! I appreciate your sense of humour. ;)
The great thing about it being Scorpius' pov next chapter is getting to show what he's thinking--and NOT saying, LOL.
