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 together—until a tampered Portkey changed their destination.
Hoorray!!! I loved just the fact that there was a chapter.
Then, I read the chapter, and was simply in heaven!! =)
Poor thing Scorpious and rockn'roll Rosie!! It was nice to see a young girl sweet and delicate and composed as she can be, showing that there is a lot of edgy midly recklessly impulsiveness where all the soft things come from.
We have a saying home, "the quiet ones are the worst ones". I'm a personal fan of than saying and I think Rosie represented it impeccably in the last chapter, which adds yet another motive for me loving this fic. I must say, after alll that ordeal, I missed Rosie's edgy side. Glad to have her back in all her magnificence. =) I'm sure Scorpious appreciates it as well. Perhaps his hand not so much.
It was really nice to see Hugo being a sportsman again. I'm sure he'll warm up to Scorps... after the first or second niece or nephew arrives. ;)
As for Hermione, I do love how you portray her as this "modern" rational and understanding mother. Without loosing that Rosie-ish spark we all love and like. Such as the smile and "when the yelling stops". =)
I'd very much like to see where this goes. I hope Edgar is not sending them to a too awful place.
PS: there's no way to write romance unless alone. How are characters going to whisper naughty things in your ear with nossy witnesses judging from afar!? LOL
Waiting for a chapter is like waiting in a long queue to ride a roller coaster. Finally, you're there, whoo-hoo! When you get off, you want to ride again, and have to go to the back of the line and wait some more. D'oh! Thank you for enjoying the fanfiction ride and waiting for another chapter so nicely! :D
Thank you, too, for liking Rose's edgier side (nice way to put it!). Heehee about Hugo. I think he'll be one of those, hey, nobody insults my brother-in-law but me! types. Not that that'll happen anytime soon . . . . :D
They're going to the street where Edgar lives, but as Lucius told Scorpius in the flashback when Scorpius went to visit, "The landlord lives better than his tenants"! ;)
Get well soon dear writer and I hope your puppy is better as well.
Love this story!!
This chapter was great! Pretty action packed! Interesting... while I was reading I could feel Scorpious rush and despair as if it was my own! He had exceptionally quick thinking!
BTW, is Lucius INSANE!?!? Sending Scorpious to such a dangerous place? What was his intention to get Rose killed or to finish them both!?
I wonder if there are more survivors than just this Rhys character? (cool name, BTW)
This just keeps getting interesting... too bad Rose and Scorps didn't have their romantic night together...
^.^ Great chap!
Thank you! Courage is doing better than I am, heh, and you're right about Scorpius, but a lot of men go into Action Man mode during stressful times, which is more productive than emotional wreck mode, although there's an intensity that tells you they're teetering on the edge.
I'm going to start writing on paper since long stints of typing are out for now. Wish me luck and readable penmanship! ;)
Your writing rocks my boat! ^.^ ALWAYS a treat to get a chappie from you Kerichi.
It's always a treat to get a review from you. It's like we're trading Halloween candy.
Imagine yourself showered in spring flowers and Easter eggs then Kerichi!!!
This reader is UBBER thrilled you have two new babies!! Courage (btw, I just love both the cartoon and the puppy name idea!) and LOST!!!!! LOL! Will we get to see some of Sawyer? *giggles* Grrrr!!! WAIT!!! Scorpious is Sawyer!! (once he gets a sun tan!)
I just can't wait to see where this is headed!!!!! I liked very much all the interfering family.... Albus, Lily, gramps Malfoy too, of course! But Albus above everyone else!
Good luck with the pup and good writing!!!! ^_^
A Malfoy with a tan? Inconceivable! Maybe he'll look a little less sparkly-vampire pale, heh.
Thank you for the shower of flowers and the Easter eggs! I tried to feed one to Courage, but he tilted his head in confusion, so I had to give a treat and tell him to pretend it was an egg or a flower, his pick. :D
Fine piece of work. I do suspect you've uncovered a T-Rex, by the way the story keeps finding more and more twists... I take it that blondie is with Edgar and he showed up to the rescue like a nice daring knight?
I find the adorable fluff in the story intoxicating. Really all the sweetness going on between Rosie and Scorpious is... *sigh* Lovely!!!
What gave it away, the teeth or the gigantic ribs? :D
Blondie is a werewolf and Edgar had a change of heart about going along with his Dad's Father/Son adventure.
Thank you for liking the romance. It's very true to life. Doesn't matter what kind of circumstances you're in, what you're up against, when you're in love there will always be romantic moments. If there weren't, life would be too damned depressing.
I liked vey much how you made Scorps and Teddy dislike each other! Quite so behemently, also. Bad auror - Good auror game was fun.
Lily was such a gem for them, yet again.
And it seems Grampa is seing some sense? One would hope...
I liked this chap, just as usual. ^.^
Can't wait to see how this ends.... yet do not actually want it to end!!
Ta, thanks! :) Scorpius remembers Rose had a crush on Teddy, so he wasn't that fond of the guy before he started playing Bad Auror and ragging on him in the interview room. Of course Scorpius paid Teddy back, implying that soon he'll be fat with coffee stained teeth, heh.
Lucius is all about self-interest, and it definitely isn't in his interest to ruin the whole group for the sake of those who have used the Knights' property as their hunting ground. He just has to swallow a bit of pride...and humble pie is his least favourite flavour. :D
Lily has been a true friend to our couple. One day, in another story, they might return the favour. ;)
^_^ Hehehe... Nice cliffie... I bet Scorpy will loose his temper just a tiny little bit there...
This is great!!! ^_^
Thank you so much! I appreciate your sense of humour. ;)
The great thing about it being Scorpius' pov next chapter is getting to show what he's thinking--and NOT saying, LOL.
Ohhhhhhhh.... It's just sooo perfect!!! My sweet darlings... I do hope there's nothing too kreepy crawling about our kiddoes.....
BTW, being away on a deserted island you be so muh fun if you were a wizard! Not fair!! We humble muggles would get eaten by mosquitoes, sunburnt, not have potty or showers and heaven knows what else!! I resent their paradise a bit, I must confess. But I must admit, I'm waiting to see how things turn out...
Author's Response: Peeing in the bushes using leaves for toilet tissue, sunburnt and slapping mosquitoes wouldn't be conducive to romance, would it? Being a wizard rocks, no doubt about it. :D
SUCH a cliffie!! But so masterfully writen!
We were walking up to this very point the whole chapter, walking on egggshells!
We knew Scorpious would be there... still, I was cringing and squirming just as bad as Rosie was!! ^.^
I guess, this is a way of saying "congratulations" made it into the nice list. Even with the cliffie... nice list, definitely.
Speaking of nice, it's pleasant to see Hugo is actually voicing his "suport" for Scorpious, even if only for saying he's more decent than Lucius. Quite an improvement, I'd wagger!
This Rob the Auror character... I smell he has something to do with Lily's payment, doesn't he? LOL! That little minx!!! I love her character!!
You're on the nice list for such a glitteringly glorious review! Hugo can be a git, but he loves his sister and at least can admit that Scorpius is decent.
Heehee, the payment. Rob the Auror is a good guess. You'll have to wait and see if you're right, but since it's the holidays I'm sure you'll have loads of distractions. :D
Hehehe... of course I got that hint towards the belly and the teeth. That was what I liked the most about that sparring. That and Scorpious finese! The boy is brilliant.
Are you planning on a story about Lily!? Featuring Scorps and Rose!? Do tell!!!! When? Tittle? Who's the leading male!? Do tell!!!! Another Kerichi love story!! *does happy dance* (it's a bit like the macarena)
Author's Response: I don't remember if Jo ever said what House Teddy was sorted into, but I think of him as Gryffindor in this chapter, boldly antagonistic, while Scorpius is Slytherin using more subtle...but effective...means. :D Thank you for liking it, and wow, you picked that up about Lily! It'll probably be a short story...or maybe three parter, heh...and the part of love interest is open to suggestion, hint, hint. ;)
Summary: Formerly titled 'From Wading to Redemption.'
Ron leaves. Ron returns. Ron saves me from Malfoy Manor. Ron and I descend together into the Chamber of Secrets. And, finally, Ron Weasley comes to understand S.P.E.W.
You've heard Harry's side of those stories -- but don't you want to hear my side?
Hermione's Point of View. Based on events in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
EDIT: This story, which was written almost a year ago, is undergoing a sort of Spring Cleaning. In other words, I am revising and resubmitting the chapters to take care of the things that now make me cringe. Rereads and new Reviews are welcome!
*sigh* Loved ever word of it!!
Author's Response: That isthe highest praise I could ask. =D
Loved that very last dialog. "Consider yourself warned" LOL!!! ^_^
Author's Response: Haha, that was my favorite line to write in this chapter!
Summary: She knew that as long as she lived, she would never, ever forget him. She would never, ever forget how much pain he had caused her.
Merope Gaunt's love potion did not only hurt Tom Riddle. It also brought much pain and grief to his former love, Cecilia.
Interesting view of the facts. Liked it!! Quite temper Mrs. Cecilia, uh? Nice little one! Poor Tim Riddle... I think if he had know, he might have gotten a vasectomy before he reached puberty!!
Author's Response: Well, wouldn't you be a little twirked off if it happened to you? And I agree... Tom should have gotten that done. Thank you for your review!
Summary: Lidiya Shale, Minister of Magic, resents Harry Potter for beating her to the title of most influencial person in the wizarding world.
Disclaimer: I am not and never will be J. K. Rowling, so I have come to the conclusion that I must not own Harry Potter.
The DH spoilers are very, very, mild.
Very nice piece of writing indeed!!
I shuddered a little because the Minister's thirst for power, reminded me slightly of a certain toad-faced lady...
I think you were able to portray with impeccable skill and down to a T, the way the wizarding world feels about Harry!!
The description of his "aged" eyes was quite endearing as well. Very suitable and masterfully used to convey so much of Harry's story and personality in them. Smart writer, you should give yourself a cookie for that! Specially taking into consideration that Harry's striking green eyes played an important part in canon.
I enjoyed reading it very much!! Good work!! ^_^
Author's Response: Thank you! I've always been fascinated with eyes and the saying "The eyes are the windows to the soul", and since I've always really liked Harry's eyes, I felt the need to write about them.
Summary: Romilda Vane is a young reporter for The Daily Prophet. Currently writing a popular column for the Social pages, she is outraged when the highlight of the social calender - the wedding of Harry James Potter to Ginevra Molly Weasley - is given to Lavender Brown to write.
Lavender isn't happy either, for their boss (He-Who-Pays-Our-Wages) has threatened to assign her to the Cookery section unless she dishes the dirt on her friends. She readily agrees to Romilda taking on the assignment for what could the Saviour of the Wizarding World possibly have to hide?
This is Equinox Chick of Hufflepuff and this is my entry for The Weddings Challenge in The Great Hall. I chose prompt 3 - The Daily Prophet Report.
Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling, but I think you all know that.
Thank you very much to Samarie (Hopeful_Song) for beta'ing this story for me, and giving me some excellent advice.
The Sexual Sitiuations are really very mild, and merely implied.
So, Mildew got screwed!!! ^_^ And Blaise is every bit a cunning Slyth as he ought to be!!
Romilda, sooo goy what she deserved. And Lavender, come to think of it, acted ever as cunningly as a Slyhterin herself. She wrote the article but got off the hook of writing the dirt. AND if there was dirt to be found, Lav-lav sure as hell HAD it to dish out.
Harry knew, but I bet Ginny had a decent motive. Perhaps a row and in the mist of it darling Dean showed up and offered comfort? Sometimes things just happen... What surprizes me is that Dean actually did that to Harry. They may have not been BFFs but they were mates, fellows, right? Shame on him! On Gin, too, with reason or not.
I like the way you made Romilda the new Rita Skeeter. I so loathe the both of them!!! Great, great, great, great fic!!!!
Author's Response: Thank you. I'm glad you liked it. Now, I have left it ambiguous so for all we know Dean wasn't really doing the dirty of Harry. You're right though, sometimes things just do happen, and poor old Dean was left without the girl. Ah, now Romilda ... I don't think she'll be quite as awful as Rita was, not now. Thanks again ~Carole~
Summary: The seven women who loved Remus Lupin.
You - evil- writer!
You NEVER fail to reduce me to a puddle of tears!!!! Why!?!?! I mean, honestly, this time I said to myself, I've already read four of these fics, she can't possibly have more stuff in store. I must get tempered or stronger after a while, right?
Evil, evil, evil, evil writer!!!!! I'm crying SO hard even as I write this... Sobbing!
I liked the approach you took with Ginny. Very in character!! I was surprized you didn't use Hermione, but welcomed the change! And the idea that she compares him to Harry, and that last coment on Potter men he makes!!
As for Andromeda's part. Spotless!! Really brilliant!
This is one of my fave parts actually. (the first tear dropped about here, BTW.)
"Because her daughter might have died so young, so tragically, so undeservedly, but at least before dying, she had experienced something wonderful.
She had experienced the rare kind of love that makes a soul so much better.
And for that reason, she supposed, Andromeda Tonks loved Remus Lupin."
As for Tonk's part. What can I possibly say? Standing ovation to that. Specially that last sentence. And the way he proposed to Tonks was just so... gosh! I made me want to jump into the screen and give Remus a bear hug!!!
I close this review with the firm purpose of NOT crying the next time you post one of these.
PS: when I write "evil", it's intended as evil mastermind!! So, please, take it as a compliment. ^_^
Author's Response: Thanks very much! I definitely take evil as a compliment ;) I'm glad you liked this and it didn't disappoint after the first few one-shots like it. I think Andromeda's part was one of the easier for me to write -- it just poured out of me -- it's good to know you really liked that. Including Ginny seems to be surpising a lot of people, although when I was putting together a list of who Remus's seven would be, she was one of the first people I thought of. I thought about Hermione, too, but it seemed more important to me to show the perspectives of Dorcas Meadows and Hetty Bayliss. It's good to know you didn't mind!

Interesting. Promising. I'll keep a closse watch on updates!
It's intriguing. He wants to unite muggle and wizarding world, or what? Or is the Middle Kindgom something else? I can't quite tell...
Liking this story very much!!
Feng seems like an adorable girl! I do hope things turn out in the end for her!!
It just keeps getting interesting!! *grins* Things are about to change drastically for little Feng... :S And I doubt she'll like it. Poor thing!
Nice... So, deep down Feng had doubts and grudges against the gymnastic world... Liang kind of made them surface!
Ouch... Good luck dear Birdie! I'd dying to see what her parents make of her sudden appearance!! LOL! And what they'll think of magic. Not to mention, she seems to be quite powerful and talented. I guess all the training in focus and concentration in gymnastics payed its toll,right?
