Hi there! *team blue*

It's been a while since I read this, but your writing is very easy to slip back into; the film noir-esque world you've created out of Hogwarts isn't easy to forget, and surprisingly addictive.

I love how you've shown the comparisons between Elodie and Dominique that Scorpius can't stop seeing; how he is thrown from one to the other, and he tries to see through them, but is never pleased by what he gets because it was better in the past. It creates a lot of tension, and I have to say that I adored Elodie and Dominique's face-off. It's amazing how you've shown that they are confident in all languages (French, body, etc.) and are using everything in their power to manipulate the world around them.

I also loved the way that you did the Auror's investigation. They were so pathetic, but you showed clearly how Scorpius was struggling to fight them off, and Elodie - enigmatic Elodie - had to step in and help. I love how you show her fluctuating moods so often, in a sort of dance with Scorpius. And I love the casual threat from the seemingly pathetic aurors too; you've really got the message across that nobody is what they seem.

Also, I loved the development of Scorpius and Al's relationship - it's so strange, but strangely refreshing. However, it too was marred by the teeny reminder at the end that Rose knows. It was so clever, how you inserted a single phrase about her, but it really shadowed their sort-of friendship and added underlying tension that even Scorpius doesn't know about.

I don't know if I ever said this in previous reviews, but I love how you change tenses for Scorpius' feelings about Elodie and back again, as if to demonstrate just how unsure he is of his feelings about her.

Anyway, I adored this! 10/10, please update soon Hattie :D
