That was something a little bit diffferent.

Author's Response: Hmm... good different or bad different? Hehe. Either way, I thank you for reading and always taking the time to leave a review!

Yipeeeeee!!! A new Kenley story, ad with Scorpius!

Okay, I am going to admit to trepidation when I saw you'd chosen Scorpius because I do feel very proprietary towards him. Silly, I know, because he's not mine at all - sigh. However, I do know what a fabulous writer you are and the trepidation was quickly dispelled. Your Scorpius is a delight. So weighed down by the family history and slightly, but not completely bowed by it. (He reminds me a little of Harry, oddly enough, who went through such sh*t but remained irrepressible). I loved his diffidence, and Oh, my, that kiss was lovely. I'm so jealous of Kenley because my first kiss was horrible - ha ha.

I should really mention Kenley as she's the MC. I love her. She's a very real character, Lori, not just a name on a page, and the backstory is great. Yes, I remember her from your other story, and I was thinking ... 'but but but what about James?' however, this weas a lovely glimpse into the girl she was before she caught James' eye. You obviously have a clear idea of her because she was very much how I remembered, yet that little bit younger, which as a teen makes a whole lot of difference.

I need to go now, but I loved this. WRITE MORE!!!! ~Carole

Author's Response: Yes, first kisses are always horrid, but I couldn't do that to her, could I? And though it was her first kiss, it wasn't his, so I figure he knew what he was doing. Hehe. I knew you would be a tough sell because of Scorpius, but thought you'd forgive me since she doesn't feel the same. He'll recover and may even fall for a little Gryffindor. Who knows? Ha!

I'm so glad you thought she seemed younger in this than in SYS. That was the biggest challenge with writing this scene (which has always been backstory but never was intended to actually be written). Kenley is a character of mine from an OF I've abandoned, and she's much older in that. So writing her as a 7th year was hard, and now to go even younger... well, it's challenging to get that voice right.

I so appreciate you always taking the time to read and review Carole. I do have more for her, and have not given up on writing it. One of these days...

Thanks again!
