Hey! I don't believe in bashing, no worries :)

I loved the way you portrayed Scorpius in the initial sorting scene. In so many next-gen fics, Scorpius is just one of the guys, another golden boy just like Albus and James. But I imagine he would definitely be ostracized for his father's misdeeds, and he would probably feel very, very lonely. So I congratulate you on doing that well. I also loved how spunky Rose was.

Now -- I hate to say it, but I think this was a bit overdramatic. I can sort of understand Rose wanting to kill herself, and Scorpius's reasons for proposing to Lily made sense, but to have everyone, including the jilted bride, totally approve of their nuptials and want them to get married right then was a little much for me. It made it seem like the entire conflict here was self-imposed, just Rose being the only one left out of the big joke, so to speak. I realize that you wrote some personal feelings into this, and so a slightly exaggerated outcome was possible, but in the future I would maybe consider re-writing it into a chaptered fic and taking things a little slower.

Other than that, it was great. Rose's feelings seemed very real and she was unfailingly humorous. I also love the characterization of Albus as the loving big brother type -- very true to how I'd imagine him to be, considering his namesakes. I also didn't spot any big technical errors, so that's a plus. Good job with this one! :)

Author's Response: Hey there!

Thank you so much for your read and review! It means a lot to me! :)

And I am glad you found Scorp and Rose in the sorting scene and such =)

Haha, I have heard that a lot, this being overly-dramatic, but I don't know I just love the way it is and I wrote it for my own fun (and comfort =P) and I really wouldn't want to change it. After all, sometimes far-fetched overlydramatic crazy fics do make you laugh stupidly, dont they? But, thank you for your valuable input!

I am relieved that you found Rose's feelings real and even humorous, I was afraid I didn't get it quite right like I wanted it to. Also for the humor credit goes to my beta too =) Also, I am glad you liked Albus' characterization, it is how I imagine him to be too!!

Thank you so much once again to take the time and effort to read and review my slightly eccentric fic!!

Cheers!
