I am determined to one day review everything you've written. That sounds creepy. It didn't mean to sound creepy. (or did it? -insert dramatic music-) Anyways!

I actually read this a long time ago, I think before I even got an account here on the archive. It's actually been in the back of my mind ever since - it's a ScoRose that I've never been able to forget, because it's so unlike anything else I've read. And I totally love it.

"Our parents' generation was something amazing. Ours is just sort of... lazy." Kind of true... I mean, what must it be like, living in the shadow of these people who did all these amazing things at such a young age and then... you're just not. awk.

"You always do understand me best, Rose." And just like that, she forgot about his other girls and let herself keep falling." and "Why did we ever make this so complicated?" "Because it wouldn't have been memorable if we didn't." ♥ love love love.

I love the... realism of this piece. How they're (as said in the summary) unabashedly elitist, and yet... relatable. I liked how there wasn't a perfect romantic ending - but I wouldn't call it sad. It's real. It's sort of happy and sweet, in a way. It's closure. It's like real life.

"Rose wouldn't have been surprised if life threw her Scorpius just so she could grow up a little faster". They were a perfect duo and I think that they both helped each other a lot, in the end. It was a different kind of relationship, but that was good.

Honestly, there isn't anything that I don't like about this, and I think this is actually how I ended up finding Game, and therefore, all the rest of your pieces. So looking back on this - I wish I reviewed earlier, but here I am now! It's captured that stage in adolescence so well and I really could relate - it was so familiar.

Wonderful, wonderful job. I love your funny stories... but you're tremendously talented at these one shots, too. :) Unfair! :P

Author's Response: I never knew that this was the first fic of mine you read :o But I'm so glad that it is ♥ ♥

I think I've been more grateful than ever that I wrote this when i did. It was right before I entered college. I had grown out of this past me years ago and was forgetting what had shaped present me. The only thing I remember was 14-year-old me telling myself to never, ever regret the past, and I couldn't remember why anymore until I wrote this. Without this, I think I would've forgotten entirely.

I think one of the hardest parts of adolescence is when you find something you think you believe in, you find someone who agrees, and then it feels like nothing else can be right. That was Rose's most difficult task -- to admit that she was wrong and to stop romanticizing her relationship with Scorpius.

Thank you so much, loff! ♥ ^__^
