Hi!

Ah, I'm horribly shallow and the one thing on my mind is "they didn't end up together!" Not only that, but it's blaring in bold all-caps. To ignore that point...

I see why they couldn't be together, why they shouldn't be together, why they're horribly incompatible for eachother and how there is a difference between being someone's stronghold and being meant for them. However, I can't help but get the creeping feeling that they're just settling. Of course, they're only just leaving Hogwarts at the end of this story and will probably find more relationships in their future. However, I feel like Rose is just settling for second best with Eli.

Both Rose and Scorpius were characterised wonderfully. They're pretentious personalities definitely evened out after a while, and it made me long for another moment of it that they shared.

The flow of your story was excellent even though you were conjoining very individual events. Despite the variety, they told the story quite well and much better than they would have if done in a more organized manner. This format also revealed important information with ease.

Your writing propelled me forward, even though I was originally daunted by the story's size. It entranced me. I couldn't stop if I had wanted (or needed) to.

I can relate to this, as it seems many other reviewers can by your Author's Note. Quite honestly, I want a Scorpius like this in my life, even if I can't have him...(would I really?)

Author's Response: Heh, I do get that a bit, and it's very understandable to be sad that they don't get together. A lot of it comes down to what they want in love. While Scorpius understands Rose in many ways, sharing a certain connection, is it what she wants, really? Her emotions seem to say so, but the reality shows something more unhealthy. Is it love or obsession talking? Is Scorpius is even Scorpius or just an idea of him Rose has built up in her mind? Some would say Rose chose a "safe" route, though I like to believe that she chose someone who makes her happy because that's what she truly wants. It's not as romantic as an ideal, but it's a valid one. It's all up to interpretation and I have my own answers based on experience, and I'm glad to hear your views on it and I'm glad you enjoyed it :)
