Rose was a Weasley. She never gave Scorpius Malfoy a second glance. They were sworn enemies, even though they’d barely even spoken to each other. But sometimes all it takes for love to blossom is a Potions lesson, a few snide remarks and a dropped book.
Two people. Two entirely different worlds that are suddenly intertwined.
I noticed that Scorpius didn't seem surprised by Draco's stinging hex, or the severity of Lily's symptoms. Sounds like he may have personal experience in being on the receiving end of that spell. You are really making my heart break for him in this story.
Please please please keep going on this one, it's brilliant!
First of all, I'm really enjoying this story! I just re-read it though, and I'm curious about Ernst. Is there any chance he's a Jewish--or half-Jewish--kid who's been hiding his background? He seems to be going out of his way to display his Catholicism, almost like he's playing a part. He's also a lot more eagar than Dieter to break with the muggle world, even mentions life at Durmstrang as a fresh start without the old divisions. That would makes sense for a kid who's been forced to hide and lived with that kind of fear. Then there's his story about his parents. Divorce was all but unheard of, but annuling a marriage between a Jewish woman and a gentile man would have been right up the Nazi's alley. It occured to me that his mother could have been Jewish, and after his parents split up he was taught to almost flaunt Catholicism as a way of avoiding suspicion. Or maybe I'm just reading way too much into this character and I need to concentrate on watching Dieter try to embrace two dictatorships at once.
I've been following this story for a year now, and I LOVE it! Sep and Drell are, without a doubt, my favorite characters that we don't meet in the books. I think the letters tied up the story nicely, but I really would have liked to see Drell spending more time with the Weaselys. Of course, I'd also like to see the wedding, their kids, and anything else you'd care to write about them. So consider this a shameless plea for more!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm glad you've enjoyed it. I have a few ideas for one-shots about their future life swimming around in my head, but nothing definite yet... so maybe!! :)
Scorpius had never looked forward to anything the way he looked forward to leaving Hogwarts with Rose. He planned a holiday with no friends, no family, and nothing to do but be togetherâ€”until a tampered Portkey changed their destination.
Yay! I love the way you write Scorpius and Rose, so naturally I'm thrilled to see more of them.
Author's Response: Thank you for being thrilled to see more of them. They've been in the back of my mind, waiting impatiently to come out and play. I just couldn't do the Lapland plot. Not enough conflict, heh.
