Aw, lovely! I'm so glad you wrote a sequel to your other story about Scorpius and Neville. It's such an unlikely mentor/student relationship, but I love it because of that tricky bit with Neville and Draco. And it's still unique to read Scorpius so estranged from Draco, though a bit sad, really. As is the bullying, which you continue to address well. Does this Neville have any children? Anyway, it's a great little companion piece, nice job! ~Gina :)

Thank you for the birthday present ;-)

I really like this story. The fact that Scorpius finds it a safehouse is great, espeacially the way he describes it. I've been where Scorpius is now in the story (though I didn't get things nicked from me), and I find it very realistic. Neville is great in this story, but I can't help wondering about what's going on in his head during this story. It's your fault, because the intervention was written in 1st person, with Neville as leading character.

Carry on, I'll keep reading this series.

Hey there. This is interesting. I am a huge Scorpius lover because I hate the fact that he's usually portrayed as a Draco Clone, so this appealed to me. I don't quite understand why he's bullied but I guess the Malfoy name holds no sway in this canon, and that is an intriguing premise. (Sorry, I am very caught up in my own canon so find it hard when something is different - ha!)

Neville was good here. He's forgiving of Draco and not going to take anything out on his son (ha, see that Snape!) which is so like Neville, yet he's not forgotten anything because obviously he can't forget.

The only thing I would query is this:

"We Slytherins hate leaving a debt unpaid, you know."

I don't think 'Slytherins' would be that fussed about leaving debts unpaid, Scorpius might because he's 'different' but Draco didn't seem to give a rats' about debts and I don't think any of the other Slyths were that bothered unless there was something in it for them.

Author's Response: Carole,
I'm so glad you gave my Scorpius a shot. I am somewhat flaunting tradition with his characterisation, which I know is difficult to swallow when Next-Gen veterans have a clear and solid headcanon.
As for Slytherins and debts, I always saw it not as settling a debt out of honour, but because being in debt to someone gives them power over you. Collecting favours from people is a very effective and civilised way of collecting power, and something at which I think most Slytherins would be rather adept. Scorpius, being very much outside the social circle of his own House, can laugh at it because even if he's at the bottom of the pecking order, it means he's oddly free of the constraints of those power plays. It's very difficult to make that come across in a one-shot without making it an infodump, but since you pointed it out, I'll try to make it more clear in the parent work - so thank you. :)
Thank you so much for the review, and I'm glad it intrigued you. Once I've established a bit more in the parent work I'd be interested in your input as a Scorpius lover. :)
