Hey, Rita. I'm here with some review action.

Out of all the Scorpius/Rose stories I've read, this might be my favorite. Albeit, I haven't read a lot of ScoRose, but I have read several, and this one really blew the others out of the water.

I think the main reason is that it's nothing like the others I've read. They weren't lost in some fit of passion at the first moment they saw each other. I liked that you explained how they had never even spoken to each other during their years at Hogwarts. Their first real encounter was that night and it worked really well that way.

I liked that both Rose and Scorpius were in a position where they were, in some way, trying to break free from something in their past. For Rose, it was her reputation as a perfect little good girl who never does wrong and for Scorpius it was really just who he was. He didn't want to be known because of his father or grandfather. It made it more interesting, realistic, and perhaps even more romantic because they were both coming from the same sort of perpsective, although very different reasons for having it.

You mentioned concern over continuity and as I was reading, I didn't have any troubles with it at all. I went back through and looked again but I really couldn't come up with any area that I thought needed more work. It might move a bit fast from the bar scene to his flat, but it wasn't incredibly speedy and like I said, as I was reading it, I didn't notice anything off about it. I had to actually look for things that were off.

All in all I think it was really great! Your writing style is fantastic. All the descriptions were interesting and well thought out but at the same time they weren't over the top or ridiculous sounding. I really enjoyed reading this, feel free to drop by my review thread any time(:

Author's Response: Miss Erica,

I am so pleased that you liked this! It's one of my favorites that I have written so far! I actually don't read next generation, and i think that helps me when I write it because then I don't have any problems with cliches or doing things the same old way.

Honestly, i know people like to draw Rose and Scorpius together when they were in school, but I like the thought that they didn't talk in school, that they would live to their parents expectations until graduation, when they were tired of it all!

I think it's more fun to have them meet this way, to be kind of down, needing a pick me up.

I'm glad that you had to look for things that were wrong. I think I intended the story to move quickly from the bar to the flat, but that's only because I didn't want to write the boring transition!

Thank you so very much for this review, I whole heartedly appreciate it very much!!!
