Review:Hadassa says:
Honestly, I quite hated your story. I'm an avid Scorp/Rose fan, and this story really shouldn't be classified as a Scorose fic. The story itself, while grammatically pristine, was filled with cliches and was overly dramatic, much like your characterization of Lily. In conclusion, I have to say that I would not recommend your story to any other readers.

Author's Response: Thank you for your honesty! It's funny because I wrote this story in reaction to people like you who adore Scorose, a ship that I find to be innately cliched and over-dramatic. The fact that you have been offended by this story's content means that my initial reasons for writing it were indeed carried through with success, so thank you for hating it. I am a little sad that you couldn't see how this story is critical of both "YA romances" and how Scorose is too often written, but I suppose that die-hard shippers like yourself only want those two characters to get together no matter how irrational and ridiculous such a result would be.

Additionally, if you know of how my story is cliched, I'd love to hear it - especially if it means that there are more stories like mine out there now. When I first wrote this, there weren't any that dared go against the hallowed Scorose ship. Lily was also purposely exaggerated - perhaps a little overdone, but sadly, I've known far too many girls just like her.

I do see how you could have been confused by my categorizing Scorose as the "main pairing", but it is the central ship around which the whole plot of the story is focussed - just because those two characters don't get together in the end doesn't mean that it's not a Scorose story. However, for future readers like yourself, I have added to the summary that this is an "anti-Scorose". Hopefully that prevents future sufferings by readers. ;)
