Pf. Steamy's about right :P
Right, firstly, have you ever written a story without mentioning something PT related? :P I love it, it's hilarious :P Nice way to make every story your own :D
Ok, reviewing. As always, you've got a good grasp on the basics, obviously. I was hooked from the start, Scorpius in particular drew me in. He was so dejected and down, and you explained it all without making it seem dry or overwhelming. Rose, on the other hand, irritated me a little. She seems superficial, but I suppose that's her purpose here after all.
Definitely a different take on Scorpius and Rose. I have to wonder, was this when you first got the idea of Rose being a Healer (and idea that I'm guessing you later developed)? It certainly works nicely, and I could see her channeling Hermione a bit when she sat Scorpius down to analyse his psyche :P
Scorpius, on the other hand...I can't really see a lot of his parents in him. The mark of his parents actions, and the payment for them, however, has left an impression. I felt so terribly sad for him when you described his job and how it was the closest he'd get to quidditch, and how he was doomed to this life. I suppose I have an idealistic view of the next generation, and want to believe that Draco would be accepted, so Scorpius would too. You, on the other hand, seem to have gone the realistic route, and you've done a beautiful job. It was realistic and saddening, and I envy your ability to write emotion, especially angst like that.
Beautiful writing :) Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Ash!
Author's Response: Oh God it's such a long review *is scared to respond*
No I don't believe I HAVE written a story without PT related things...unless you look at my waaay earlier stuff haha.
You're right, Rose is SUPER irritating in this story and I think that's kind of how I wanted her to be portrayed, at least in the beginning.
This actually was not the first time I made Rose a healer. That was in Centrifuge, but I really like her as a healer. Plus i get to talk about more PT stuff. WINNING.
I'm not going to lie, I'm a fan of realism. And I like to write about Scorpius having to deal with his name because I think the meaning of it may change somewhat, at least in the beginning right after the war. That's not to say that the Malfoy name doesn't mean anything anymore but I think that this generation is possibly ruined. Not sure...but I like to explore it, definitely!
THANK YOU JULIA!!! :)
