Awww! I really, really loved this. I wish you would write more Scorose!
I like this couple, and I think it was a great way of telling this story. Good job!
Author's Response: Thanks! :)
This was so sweet! I love your Scorpius and Rose, their adorable! :)
Author's Response: Thanks! :D Glad you liked it. ~Natalie
Loved this! Really good. Well done!!
Author's Response: Yay! Glad you liked it. ~Natalie
Incredible characterisation. I particularly like the way you show the interaction between Scorpius and Rose. Furthermore, the dialogue flows smoothly and fits the individual characters' traits.
But I just want to say that last part was utterly hilarious.
Nice work there!
Author's Response: Hello! It's always encouraging to know someone liked my dialogue because I usually struggle with it. Am happy you liked the last part. :D Thanks for the review! ~Natalie
Okay, my review got cut :'( I'll start again.
Dearest Nat, thanks so much for writing this. I loved it! LOVED. IT. The characters acted as how I would have imagined them to, and the mini-plot flowed really well. This was such a lovely, sweet, and sexy (because Scorpius is sexy, yesss) read. Thoroughly enjoyed it, I did. And I'm not just saying that because it's christmas. Seriously.
Still can't believe this was written for me. Thank you so much :) Definitely one of my favourite christmas presents this year. Expect me to bother you soon about writing more Scorpius/Rose fics :D
*adds to favourites*
Author's Response: Dinny! Did you have to try submitting this review nine times? Lol! I must have got at least 10 notifications. MNFF can get cranky. I am happy you liked it. :) When I found out it was you and that it was your prompt, I just had to jump in, even though I am not a Gryff. I really do like writing this pairing, though, I am going the Scugo way now. D: Hope you had a great Christmas, and wish you a Happy New Year! ~Natalie
I like your story, Natalie! In particular, I like your characterization of both Rose and Scorpius, but especially Scorpius: you've made them your own in small, subtle ways, like their unspoken academic competition or his smoking.
The other thing I really liked was the last scene when they finally come together. I really liked how hesitant they were, and when they admitted their feelings it was just something soft and simple - two friends finally coming together. As always with your writing, I believed it completely.
My only concrit would be that I wanted a bit more from each scene, to really build up to the end. But wanting more is a good thing, isn't it? :)
Nice job, Natalie! I will try to read your other new stories soon!!
Author's Response: Gina! I always look forward to your reviews. I donít think Iíve ever told you that. :) This is the story I was panicking about in my AIM statuses. I knew it wasnít enough, whatever Iíd written Ė something was missing, wasnít it? Although the bare essentials were there, it definitely needed a bit of expansion, a bit of elaboration. But time constraint, exhaustion, and panic got to me; I really couldnít tell where I should add, or even what I should add in the one-shot. I still feel this idea could have been executed more properly as a chaptered fic. I am, however, super glad that my characterisation of Scorpius has been appreciated. I think my Rose was under-developed compared to him. Itís something I need to work on if I ever think of doing something about this pairing, and about this version of their story (because Iíve done at least three versions till date.) Thank you for reading and reviewing, Gina. I canít wait to read what you and Jess have been publishing. :D ~Natalie
Yes yes yes, I liked it a lot ... except it's Scrose and not Scily, but I can forgive you for that ... because it's you and your stories make my heart melt.
I love Scorpius in this. I love the banter. I love his honesty and his utter teenage boyness. I LOVE SCORPIUS MALFOY! Give him to me now.
And now I need to get back to High and write more Scorpius (and a little bit of another Slyth heh heh heh)
Lovely story, Natalie. ~Carole~
Author's Response: It's Scugo - not Scorose or Scily. :D And I shall give you Scopius, the half-brother, don't worry! Thanks for reading and reviewing. I'm happy to know you liked my Scorpius. ~Natalie
i liked it a lot!! i was drawn in from the beginning and completely believed the entire thing. this is one of my favorite ships and you absolutely did it justice! wonderful job :-)
Author's Response: It is one of my favourite ships, too! Though, ever since I wrote my Scorpius/Hugo, I've been having second thoughts. o.O Thanks for reading and reviewing! I really appreciate it. ~Natalie
I don't read next gen...ever, but this was really cute. I liked how you managed to stuff 4 years into a one-shot and make it totally believable. I really suck at reviewing, but I'll try and give you a good one :P
II liked your characterization of the characters, especially Scorpius. i just looked back, and I realized that you barely mention their names, but you know exactly who they are. That's awesome :)
The plot moved along very nicely as well. There were a few sentances where the wording made me go huh? :S but I understood it with the writing around it. Overall, this fic was really adorable, and I think you did a great job. :)
Author's Response: Hello! Oh! I wonder which sentences they were. Iíll reread and alter them if I find them. Itís nice to hear people liked my story; itís nicer to know when the story wasnít even something theyíd normally read. :D Thanks for the review! ~Natalie
