Bio:

I am a recent member of the Harry Potter fandom, but I have always had a passion for the written word, and I hope to fulfill it here. I live in a relatively boring corner of Idaho, and I like Kokanee and a good book!

So, I suppose you're wondering what's up with my username. Even if you're not, this is how that happened. No, I was not aspiring to be a Gryffindor. I can't think of any house to which I would belong less than Gryffindor, in fact. It was a moment of clarity that I got while I was battling with myself about whether I should want to be Sorted into Gryffindor to be like Harry or to be Sorted elsewhere and follow my own path. I thought it to be much like the contemplative scene in Hamlet when he weighed taking his own life. I'm not trying to be melodramatic. That's simply is what popped into my head when I was trying to sign up to leave a review. :D

High by Equinox Chick
Rated: 3rd-5th Years [Reviews - 233]

Summary: Past Featured StoryScorpius Malfoy is the Seeker for Slytherin. Not only that, he's the best Seeker at Hogwarts, and it's his catches that win matches. But this year things are different; Albus Potter has switched to Chaser and the new Gryffindor Seeker is his annoying little sister.

This is the story of how one match and one missed catch can change your life.

This story was accidentally deleted, so is being resubmitted ... very very quickly.

SQUEEEEE! High won the Best Next Generation QSQ award. Thank you so much for the everyone who has helped, either by beta'ing or encouraging me.

Thank you Natalie (hestiajones) for doing the vast majority of the beta work on this, and Apurva for work on the early chapters

Squish for Natalie, Jess, Kara and Bob for helping me sort this out.

Yay, a baby name! Long-winded, but it seems to fit both Lav and Blaise.

I feel a little bubble of pride toward Scorpius for making it through the practical with flying colours. And yay to producing a Patronus like a BAMF. Almost makes me forget about, er, earlier. :/

Awwwwwww, Vaisey came crawling back, hat in hand (figuratively speaking). It was only a matter of time before he figured out what an opportunistic slag Ariadne was and that he was better off. He seemed a decent sort until she sunk her talons into his testicular region. It's nice that Scorpius can finish up with Hogwarts without burning all of his bridges.

Sexytiemmmmmmmmmmmm! It was sweet how concerned he was about hurting her. I doubt he gave a crap less had Ariadne been a virgin (*coughgutterskankcough*) when they were first together. And then it was lubbbb.

Forward march!

~Jess

Author's Response: Oh, Thaddeus is Lavender's dad's name. 'Opportunist slag' - gods I wish I'd used that - ha ha ha. OHHH, ans seyytimeeee. Yeah, he was a bit concerned. And um ... Ariadne probably wasn't a virgin, although she'd have faked it - ha ha. I'm guessing Scorp doesn;t want to put her off for life. Fortunately he hasn't and they're at it like rabbits whenever they get the chance. The Prefect's bathroom seems to be my go to place for first times. Hmmmmm, must try something else. Thankies ~Carole~

Date: 01/18/12 Title: Chapter 19: Chapter 19 -Where There's A Will

So muuuuuuuuuuuch has happened!

The will was a very interesting bit. As you know, cop/who-dun-it shows fascinate me, so legal mumbo jumbo always provides some delicious twists and turns in several scenarios. And, of course, with Hermione involved, anything that could be found behind the scenes didn't stand a chance in hell of staying hidden. HA! Suck on that, you old dirtbag! In his effort to stick it to his grandson, Lucius instead shot himself in the foot. Not gonna lie, I punched the air.

What. The. Ever-loving. Balls. Not only do I feel like giving Draco a testectomy with a rusty pair of garden shears, Astoria has really demeaned herself with her actions. She is better than that, but her part in Scorpius's de facto capture is despicable. Not because she minimalised Scorpius's feelings toward Lily, but more because she abused his trust in her. I don't know if I could ever find it in myself to forgive someone for that, so if he does, Scorpius is a better person than me.

I want to punch something every time I think about Scorpius being essentially tortured by means of starvation. It's a low, base thing to do, even for dirty, rotten, Malfoy extortionists. Again, I want to punch something. Thank Merlin he got a little of his own.

TEDDYYYYYYYYYYY! I may have to cut a bitch and steal him for myself. Two more years, and he'll be of age for me, lolol. I love the fact that Scorpius can have a proper guy friend with no strings or agenda attached.

Must carry on or the old noggin will implode. See you next chapter!

~Jess

Author's Response: Yes, this was an action packed chapter. I was aware I was reaching nearing the home strait and needed it to be fast paced. And, mmm, Astoria isn;t quite as wonderful. I think she;s pretty cynical about love - for other people - thinking her and Draco have made it despite everything (which could be true). Plus she was knocked up at 16 and didn't finish school. Meh, I never really went into this (another story, my friend) but Astoria is a clever girl and had to leave without Newts (and OWLs if I remember rightly) So, in a way Draco ruined her life - althougth she does love him. It also explains Vectors luke warm attitude towards Scorpius 'cause Astoria was her favourite pupil. ~Carole~

Date: 01/18/12 Title: Chapter 20: Chapter 20 -Fantastic Days

Hmm, Scorpius getting on with Andromeda...I can so see it. He is an intelligent boy with a healthy respect for thinking. I think he's probably the first person in her extended family not named Tonks or Lupin who she could've ever connected with. It was also nice of her to give him temporary employment (even if I do think it was out of sympathy toward his newfound poverty).

Haha, I so get the perils and pitfalls of living with a newlywed/soon-to-be-wed couple. The accidental bathroom run-ins, the embarrassing intimacies foiled by the roommate - SO TRUE! OMP! But at least Scorpius has Truckle to keep him in good graces. Which makes me wonder where Truckle will go. I hope Scorpius keeps her, since he seems a right failure at household spells, hehe.

Hugo and Al, warming to a Malfoy? Your world building is stupendous, because fifteen chapters ago, I would've laughed out loud. Now, though, it doesn't seem all that mad. They aren't treating him like Lily's boyfriend or as a Slytherin; he's just Scorpius. I'm glad they've come around, because he's never been a bad guy.

Molly's seal of approval just settles it. If Nana Weasley is happy with him, or at least treats him like one of the brood, then he has truly been accepted into the Weasley clan. Thank goodness for that, else that could get mighty awful later. But moreover, it just does a lovely job of showing Scorpius what was so intrinsically wrong with the way he was brought up. Families shouldn't be cold, proper, and rigid; they should be loud, embarrassing, and ready to cross the Rubicon for each other any day of the week. After this, I don't think Scorpius could even force himself to return to that, even if his mum's status in the family was becoming increasingly rocky.

Anyway, time to carry on. The story is almost over, which I steadfastly refuse to believe. However, I must know what happens to Astoria. And I am hoping mightily that Genister pops up again soon, even if it's some random walk-on. She's a story within a story, and I want to know it.

~Jess

Author's Response: I always think Andromeda would be quite uneasy amongst the big boisterous Weasley family. Teddy seems to slide into it, but she'd be more reserved - bit like Scorp. I liked my cricket playing here. Not sure where the inspiration came from except I could see Arthur thinking it amazing despite not understanding any of it.

Oh, um, Genister. She's not in it again, but I have plans for her ...

Thank youuuuuu ~Croll~

Date: 01/18/12 Title: Chapter 21: Chapter 21 -Relative Values

Ron being the scariest relative makes me giggle, but I can so see how this could be the case for Scorpius. His aura can be...daunting. It makes an interesting contrast to Hermione, who seems to be the most openly accepting. Of course, though, the whole family seems to have included him, or at the very least acclimated.

I openly fangirl the family Quidditch matches. In truth, I think I was more riveted and excited by these than the House matches. I think this is because it's truly about skill and love of the game. They don't have to truly worry about twig-pulling and any of the other 700-something fouls. Harry vs Scorpius had me on the edge! The EDGE! I kind of wish there was a bit more of Harry's reaction to losing (hey, he's competitive and probably hates losing, lol). However, I will simply fill in the blanks myself

Draco has a pair, no matter how he acts. He's still a supreme git for being so scornful of Scorpius's life choices, but I am so glad he has found it in himself to at least tolerate them for the sake of his son, who he apparently does love enough to balk a few dusty old formalities and endow his son with his rightful inheritance.

Neville, eh? I wonder how far he'd have to trawl up the family tree to actually find Neville as a viable relation. Oh, the horror, hehe!

Last chapter! Noooooooooooooooooo! I refuse to believe that this story will ever end. It goes on and on, my friend. At least in your head. As long as that keeps on, life is good.

~Jess

Author's Response: Oh poo, I missed a trick with Harry's reaction. URK, that's going to bug me now, although I have to say I'm not sure what he'd do. He'd want to be all fair and responsible and grown up - but losing to a Malfoy - wow that must sting! At the time of writing I was more interested in James and Al's pleasure in beating their dad - ha!

I liked writing Draco, and did alter the Neville Longbottom line a tad. I don't think there's any real danger they're related, but the Longbottom's are a pureblood family, so you never know! Ha! Actually, you might know now, if you've read the last chapter *sob*.

Heh heh - I can totally see Ron being intimidating in a Weasley thug type of way. Of course he's a pu**y cat really, but he does follow the punch first ask questions later type of life rule.

Anyway ... I've reached the last of your reviews .... only took me around a week or so to reply. Thank you, my love. Take a well earned rest and have a Butterbeer on me. :) ~CrolloftheBoards~

Sigh...you write Quidditch divinely, Madam Croll de Dungeon. There is just the right mix of detail, action, and thought process to put me in the match but still see the story at large. Very well done. And I will never NOT love the sparring between Lily and Scorpius. So fun and intriguing. On to Chapter 2 in the Great Re-Read!

~Jess

Author's Response: YAY! The mighty Jessica DiStrange appears (damn, I want to do my tiger smilies now). I dreaded writing Quidditch when I first started writing, but - rather like you - I enjoy it now. It can be whatever I want it to be, and gives Scorpius a good chance to swear - ha ha ha.

Thanks, my love. ♥ ~Croll~

Date: 01/16/12 Title: Chapter 2: Chapter 2 - Sticky as Lips

Teddyyyyyyyyyy! He's such a good big brother figure. I really shouldn't have killed him. I suppose it's Reason #233 why you're a nicer person than I am, lol. At any rate, yet another interesting development in the ScoLily dynamic. I can't help but admire her methodology; she is calm, supportive, and slightly insistent - but not pushy or patronising.

I love the astuteness of Teddy. He actually reminds me a bit of Remus, in that he notices things but doesn't really judge as he points them out. They are what they are. But then his big brother instincts kick in, though in a fair way.

On we go, amor mia!

~Jess

Author's Response: I can't kill Teddy. It has nothing to do with niceness but because I fancy him rotten and want to have his babies. Scrap that, Victoire can have the babies, I just want to rip his clothes off.

Uhm ... okay, really, I just still have this hole in me where JKR killed off Remus and Tonks. I just hate that so much and so I need Teddy to be happy and settled and the best bits of his parents combined. It's as idealistic as hell, but I just need that completion. (Wow, that's all deep, and probably the first time I've expressed that opinion.) Thanks, Jess. ~Croll~

Date: 01/16/12 Title: Chapter 3: Chapter 3 -Smitten as That

Oh, I'm sure she meant that shaft...not. Brazen hussy. I like her already.

Your Astoria is much nicer than mine, but I think she suits your Scorpius as his mum so well. There is an innate goodness which has softened Draco a bit but has influenced Scorpius in subtle ways, the ones that allow him to so much as contemplate fancying a Potter spawn. And on the platform! Egads, she's so nosy in that perfect Mum-like way, the one who won't mind her own sodding business but you can't hate her for it. Just one of the many reasons why this story feels so relatable.

There are just so many great characters in this story. Every last one of them is mentally implanted in my head as someone I used to know in school. OH! And OMP, Teddy is such a git, lol...making Lily spend time with Harry Cootes for lying to him. Buuuut, that's what she gets. :D

Onward!

~Jess

Author's Response: Heh heh heh - yeah, Teddy is a bit of a tease.

I like Astoria - well in this chapter. There's a bit where I wanted to shake her, too, but in the end, she's okay (I hope). I needed one of his parents to be more reasonable or I couldn;t see Scorpius ever being anything other than a mini-me Malfoy. Plus I like writing bitchy Mum dialogue - heh heh heh. I plan on being as embarrassing with Charlie when he gets to Scorpy's age. (That's my Charlie and not Charlie Weasley).

thank youuuuu ~Carole~

Date: 01/16/12 Title: Chapter 4: Chapter 4 -Kitten as a Cat

*headdesk*

Oh, Scorpius, you effing dolt! Could he have possibly phrased that any more badly? I was enraged on Lily's behalf, and I know he hadn't even meant it how it sounded. Oh, if only he didn't have the same male disease the rest of the peen patrol do...talk first, think later. XD

It was nice to see Scorpius properly enthused by the DADA lesson with Harry. I do wonder, though, if Harry hadn't come in as the guest speaker to size up Scorpius rather than to teach the class a spell that Anthony probably could've shown them just as well.

You are rapidly making me dislike my own fave Next Gen character. How dare Al interfere in Scorpius's Patronus practice, lol.

Another lovely chapter from you, and another crappity review from me. Doesn't seem a fair exchange, but I'm greedy. *hugs*

~Jess

Author's Response: Hmm, I hadn;t thought that Harry was coming in to size him up, but that makes sense - ha ha. Yes! Obviously! Actually, Ben is there as well, and ... um ... yeah, won;t say any more although you've probably got that far. I know Al comes off as a total douche, but this is from Scorp's POV, so he reads more into it than is possibly intended. Or maybe he means it all - mwahahahahahahaha. Thankies ~Carole~

Date: 01/16/12 Title: Chapter 5: Chapter 5 - Burst the Clouds

Teddy is such a BAMF. He really is. Why is he the only reasonable one?

The confrontation at the match had me in giggles. Gerald was such a crap flyer, and it made my heart glow to witness his failitude and to see Scorpius reassert himself as the true owner of the broom and the one truly deserving of the Seeker position.

I really feel like, deep down, Lily knows that Scorpius hadn't intended to come off as a user. I mean...the story is in his perspective, and I was blindsided by it. Well, as there are a lot of chapters to come, I assume they get past this, but argh! the agony!!! I feel like reading this all night, not going to bed like a sane person should do. Anyway, until we meet again. :D

~Jess

Author's Response: Teddy's reasonable, in my opinion, because he hasn;t been solely brought up by Weasleys - ha! I am mean, but I do find them a prejudiced bunch at times. Obviously they come round, that is what redeems them, but there's a tendency to judge first, don;t you think? (comes from Molly - ha ha)

Lily is confused. She has been brought up as a Gryffindor Weasley, after all, and as much as she wants to believe Scorpy, ther is a part of her that in very insecure (she's not as intelligent as the others). So she can readily believe he's interested only because she's Harry's daughter. :( (and if he'd admitted that was part of the reason to himself then maybe he could have been honest with her) *sigh* teenage boys are prats. ~Carole~

Date: 01/16/12 Title: Chapter 6: Chapter 6 - Sky as a Kite

Oh, that ruddy @#$#-face! How did Scorpius keep from sending a hefty Stinging Jinx right into that git's giblets?

Yusssss, they're talking again. True, it's a shame that Cootes had to go all tentacula on her for it to happen, but it is definitely going in the right direction.

May I just take the time to say that I simply adore the narrative voice? There is something just so indelibly irreverent and so very Scorpius about it. I think it's one of the things that makes this story so great, the feeling of truly knowing and understanding the main character.

At any rate, I really should be in bed right now, but I can't stop, especially now that they're talking again! Ta for now, and see you soon!

~Jess

Author's Response: Thank youuu. I just realised when I was responding to Gina, that this is the first chaptered fic of mine written solely from a male POV. I have loved pretending to be a teenage Malfoy. There is so much you can get away with. He is just so irreverent, as you said.

Cootes is a twat. He was drunk, but he's still a twat.

Date: 01/16/12 Title: Chapter 7: Chapter 7 - A Magic Show

Showoff.

Ah, I drift off back to the days of old. You write being at school so well. Personally, I skim over the lessons because I can't be arsed to think of things like that to use as teaching points.

I'm so, so glad they talked it out and that Scorpius was straight-up with Lily. Thinking something as potentially devious and self-serving as his relationship with Lily helping his career aspirations is one thing, but being open about it is another entirely. It showed a lot of guts and that he was truly willing to do what it took to get back on track.

I'm trying my best to feel bad about Lucius having a stroke, but I can't find it in myself to conjure any sort of sympathy toward him. It probably makes me a bad person, but whatever. However, I know this will throw Scorpius for a look, so I do feel bad to a certain measure, if only for that. Okay, yeah...I'm definitely a rotten soul, hehe.

Really must get to sleep now, as much as I don't want to. Ta!

~Jess

Author's Response: Ah, the DADA class. I wanted Scorp to be good at something, and I sort of imagine everyone thinking Harry's way is always right and thus they can be foiled pretty easily. Scorpy is a sneaky git, as well.

Hmm, Lucius. I didn't feel that bad either - ha ha. Mind you, I was in two minds about his eventual demise. I shall explain later. :)

Thank youuuuuuuu ~Carole~

Ariadne needs to fall in a pit and die. What a ho-bag. >:|

Lavender is so much fun, and it was a nice (and lulzy) touch having her warn him away from a 'My Sweetheart' necklace. I cringed inwardly at the very reference.

Grr, friends give some crappy advice sometimes. Why can't people realise earlier in life that if your relationship doesn't work without sex involved, jumping in the sack isn't going to improve it. Poor Lily! Scorpius was being a bit of a git, but considering the minor agony involved, it's rather understandable.

Grr, stupid lunch not being long enough for another chapter! Will be back later!

~Jess

Author's Response: Yes, Lily was given conflicting advice and by the same person. Isn;t being a teenage girl delightful? (I remember being given the same sort of advice - HA!) Mmm, Scorp was a bit of a git, but he wants a shag- the agony in his trousers must be unbearable - snigger.

Oh, dear. Not only was he rejected, he had to deal with a pack of pompous Gryffindors. I really like the dynamics you've built into the prefect meeting. There is a definite divide between the houses or, rather, the other houses against Slytherin. It just seems like every time one of the other kids in the story talks to Scorpius, Slytherin always comes up. I think he really has a legit thing to be upset about. And OH MY CRAPPING DAMN IT, Albus is so obnoxious. I don't know how you do that, make me want to punch him, but rawr!

I think I legit like Ben. Sure, he's a bit uptight, but he really treats people fairly in ways that even his own dad didn't at school. Good guy, good guy.

Anyway, enough of the ramblitude. Onward and forward!

~Jess

Author's Response: Ben is such a 'nice guy'. Almost makes me want to punch him for being so fair and honest, hence Scorpius wanting to take the piss out of him - heh heh. Mmm, Albus and Rose really come over as obnoxious here, but actually this is from Scorps POV, so maybe they're not quite as bad as he thinks. (Or maybe they should join Ariadne in that pit and die) ~Croll~

Eww to matchmaking relatives. How disgusting. XP

During that whole...shenanigan with the to-do that Narcissa was throwing, it felt like Scorpius was about to seriously snap his twig. It was like a glorious, beautiful disaster, watching him bunk off, run off, and crawl into the bag like a champ. I don't think I've ever loved him more as a character. He's just so very much had enough.

Teddyyyyyyyyyyy! He is just...the man. He really is. He's just the man. If only Harry could get past his fatherly pissed off-ness to understand the pressures that come from being a very noticeable member of a community that approximately 3/4 of the school's population dislikes. Not to mention how much guts it takes to submit that Auror application knowing that he had a kneazle's chance in a lethifold's cage of actually being accepted because of that very identity. Damn it. Now I feel all righteously hacked off.

That howler seriously made my night. I could just hear Draco's pompous indignation, and then Scorpius just shrugging it off. So much win. And YESSS! I have a reason not to want to hex Al anymore; he finally sees Scorpius as another guy with a batsh!t family and not as that Slytherin princeling who is deserving of his spite. Yayyyyyyy!

Anyway, moving on...woot!

~Jess

Author's Response: yeah, Al finally did the right thing. I reckon the Howler did Scorpius a favour - ha. Plus ... In my mind (although I didn;t make this clear) Al realises that although Lucius is an arsehole, he is also Scorpys' granddad. and Al would hate to lose his granddad. :( Thankiees ~Carole~

Who would DARE hex her broom! I'm sure I should know who has done it, but cvgjhdfthgfk; kerstabbity!

Scorpius deserved to be back on his broom, and his win was epic. However, nothing was more epic than him giving Lily his broom so she could fly to victory, even though it's the antithesis of what all of his housemates wanted. It was kind of beautiful.

I am both excited and wrought with trepidation to see what happens when Scorpius vs Parents happens again.

Again, should be sleeping, but I caaaaaaaaaaan't!

Never took Ginny to be such a judgemental bitch, but she is totally being one. Even Harry is starting to seem okay with the idea of Scorpius dating Lily (even if he's had a lot more time to acclimate to it). What really surprises me is James, though. I thought he'd be a bit more on the animosity side than that. It does make me curious as to what your James is like outside of that and fancying the fair Nix, hehe.

Rut roh...asshattery has induced labour. Not good. I hope everything is okay. Eep! Still should be sleeping, but Lav needs our support!

~Jess

Author's Response: Okay, my deal with James is that he didn;t really give a f**k about the Malfoy rivalry - all he wanted was for Gryffindor to win - and have a lot of fun. Albus and Rose, being in the same year as Scorpius, detest him, but I just see James as being ... not bothered, almost apathetic about past history as long as he's enjoying himself (and ... yeah lusting after the fair Nix, although this story takes place in that gap after he's kissed her on the beach and before the wedding. (I make a comment in Stars or Carousels about Sarah Jones the Puff Seeker, somewhere) Also Fred, Louis and Roxy are okay with him, too. Louis in my head canon is only a few months older than James, but they're different school years.
,br> With Ginny, well, there's other stuff going on. It's not Scorpius being a Slytherin she hates, and it's not Draco being his dad - it's his evil old Grandpappy she hates. Looking at Lily reminds her of herself when she was 11 and vulnerable. *sigh* She should know her daughter better.

Yes, Lav needs support. Where the hell are you, Zabini?

Three things: 1. Scorpius is an idiot. 2. I nearly forgot that Lucius is a douchenozzle. 3. Scorpius is an idiot.

Let me explain.

1. Whyyyyyyyyy didn't he read the rest of the letter? Sure, at the time, he was emotionally crushed by rejection, but still, it wouldn't have killed him to hear Harry out. *headdesk*

2. This one is pretty self-explanatory.

3. What made Scorpius think he was going to leave without Lily? Foolish honey-chile!

I applaud your ability to take commonplace canon knowledge and hold my breath hostage as it's retold, almost as if I was waiting to see what happens next. You're either a master of your craft or I'm easily wound up, but I was gawking at the screen, properly on pins and needles. Go you!

To hell with sleep. I need to know!

~Jess

Author's Response: But if he'd read the rest of the letter, then it would have all ended far too quickly .... plus, he's an idiot.

asdflkdhsfghdgy

I may be an unholy demon for saying this, but good riddance. It's almost disgusting that Lucius's last words were bigoted garbage. I felt a bit bad for being annoyed with Scorpius for not wanting to believe Harry and Ginny, but Jaysus F Nutbunnies, I feel vindicated now that Scorpius is firmly aware of who and what his family is. While it was true that they were a bit more wise in the battle, they still believed the purist drivel.

Enjoy Hell, Lucius.

I feel like I should keep reading, but we shall have to continue this later. Pins and needles, Croll. Pins and needles. Guh! Can't wait!

~Jess

Author's Response: You know, I was very close to going the other way with this and having Lucius show some repentance thinking Lily was Ginny, but ... it didn't feel right. He might not have known that Tom Riddle would try to kill her, but I can't believe he didn't have a fair idea that something pretty catastrophic would happen to his enemy's daughter. I get a bit angry when I think about him escaping Azkaban. He might not have fought at that last battle, but he was an utter bastard and should have spent time there.

I think you really captured the strange ways that people deal with death and hurt, especially with Scorpius being curt with Lily, not really considering the idea that she would then blame herself. Poor kid. I wouldn't want that hanging over my head, the idea that, had he not gone to his grandfather's bedside, the man might not have died. Sure, he might've done anyway, but Scorpius won't see that for a while.

Yay to Astoria! No matter how vehemently douchey Draco was being to his own son, she still sneaked him back into the castle. And just so you know, Truckle might be the first house elf in fic that doesn't annoy me. She's got sass, hehe.

Anyway, I can't wait to move along. Have to go to work now, but I shall be reading on my break/lunch. Until we meet again!

Author's Response: YAY!!! I converted the mighty Jess to a house-elf - ha ha. I like Truckle, too and can picture her so clearly - even more so than Scorpius a lot of the time. Quite what that says about me, I have no idea, but there you go. Astoria has brains and knows just how to deal with Draco - mwahahahahahaha. And Draco is a douchebag, but I hope he redeems himself later on. He has his reasons. Thank youuuu ~Croll~
