outstanding story, one of the best rose/scorpius I have read.
AHHHHH!!! That was just sad!!!! PLEASE make this a chaptered fic where Scorpius figures out that he has done wrong and goes back to her, serenades her under her window!! ANYTHING!!!
Wow, I so thought they would make up in the end or something. Thought wrong I guess. You should right a sequel, your Rose and Scorpius are very well written. Great job! :)
This was a beautiful story, though sad at the end. Your imagery was perfect right from the beginning. I loved the way you managed to get inside both characters' heads simultaneously, and show their frustration with the values that are ultimately important to them but won't let them be together. Scorpius' character was especially good - I liked his conflict between his family, what he knows about himself, and the girl he loves. Well done!
ahh that was awesome....im trying to right about this ship but i dont think it could be this good!
Author's Response: Thanks, and give it a go - you never know until you try.
i really liked this fic about rose and scorp. i think you have real talent and promise in writing. good job, and i hope you write more!
Author's Response: Thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed it.
This story is quite different from the other Rose/Scorpius fics in that they don't end up together, sadly, but he says that they should see other people BECAUSE he loved her, not because he didn't love her. You have a good writing style which is solid and consistent throughout your story. Well done!
Author's Response: Thanks, I like to twist ideas and come at stories from a slightly more original angle, so I'm glad you liked that, and thanks for the compliments on my writing style.
Oh, so very sad!
Most Rose/Scorpius have them overcoming their different backgrounds to be together, but this one is unique in it's portrayal. They aren't so very different, but their worlds and circles are, and wildly so. Scorpius was actually very interesting as a character and as a man. He would rather see Rose with someone else than to see her shunned and ridiculed by her family because she was with him. I don't really think that the Weasleys would disown any of their ranks, even for being with a Malfoy, but Scorpius comes from a different background where that would be an inevitibility for him. It almost makes me sad for him that he doesn't have those types of strong family bonds.
All in all, this was a very neatly-packaged portrait at the death of something beautiful.
It's odd, watching things like this, because one thing about seeing the end of someone's happiness is that it feels sort of dirty to watch it, like you shouldn't be witnessing such a private moment, but you can't look away. It's a remarkable talent to paint such a vivid occurence, so bravo for that. :)
Very lovely, and welcome back to SPEW!
Author's Response: Yay, I love that you liked this, and thought Scorpius was interesting, given how much time you've put in to next-gen characters! And I know exactly what you mean about that slightly guilty voyeuristic edge; I think it's something that a scene like this has to have to really work, and so I'm glad you picked up on it. Thank you, as ever, dear, for another such lovely review.
