You have no idea how long I've been meaning to read this, and now I'm finally here to both read and review. :) Finally.

I love how different this is from most Rose/Scorpius tales. From most love stories in general, actually. Scorpius isn't willing to do whatever it takes to be with Rose; he won't go after her, or even wait for her. And Rose isn't willing to do anything so that she can marry him, not if it means giving up her dreams of adventure.

Of course, it's you, so the writing is beautiful by default. :P Some of my favorite lines (though it's hard to choose!) were 'The spoiled little boy still lurked within him, ready to burst out in tears and pleas when his desires were unfulfilled.' and 'Together, they would have been the most perfect match to come out of Hogwarts since the original Lily and James Potter.'

These might seem like strange favorites, so I'll explain. I loved the first one because it recognizes that Scorpius is not the polar opposite of his father as seen in some fics. Obviously he's different, but he's not absolutely everything that Draco wasn't, or absolutely nothing that Draco was.

And the second line I loved because it infers that while they could have been perfect together, Rose wasn't willing to make them perfect. At least, that's what I got out of it.

I'll be coming back to this soon (I hope)!


Author's Response: Really? Wow, it's strange to think of this story as popular and on reading lists - it started in this form as a bit of a joke to turn the Scorose cliches on their head, but it's become something rather more serious since, and it's hard to get my head around that.

I wanted to make Scorpius a Malfoy, a real Malfoy, and that meant tearing the ship to shreds, forcing both him and Rose to grow up and decide who they really are, and what they really want. Not to mention that it's fun writing Scorpius in this way - he's positively evil at some points, yet has the potential to be the complete opposite, but the choice is entirely up to him.

Thanks very much for reading and reviewing! I look forward to seeing what you think about the rest of the story! :D
