Ooh, this is so exciting! First off, though, I thought I'd say congratulations on getting made a TA! It must be such a good feeling, so well done!
This is just brilliant! I love how it's so compact - you're not wasting space or words by talking about random events which don't matter, you know (although I loved the Potions lesson, with Lily somehow making it perfectly! Haha, reminds me off Harry with the Prince's textbook, lol), and it makes it seem so much more like a documentary or like we're seeing what Lily wrote down - without it being a diary story, which is great.
Lily is brilliant. I love how you're introducing us to new sides of her and showing us her different traits without spelling them out or anything. She seems like a really good combination of Harry and Ginny - she's got Ginny's stubbornness, Harry's belief about things, Harry's curiosity... it's just perfect.
I'm going to admit, when I first read the prologue I wondered if 'he' was Scorpius... which terrified the Rose/Scorpius shipper in me, but it's Lorcan! I love the Scamander twins - there's not nearly enough out there about them. So far, he seems so interesting and caught up in something so much bigger than himself.
The plot is amazing. Seriously. I'm so invested in this now, so curious about where you're going to go with this (what happened to the memorial and all that jazz). I'm definitely going to keep reading this!
Keep going! :D
Author's Response: Okay, wow. I'm in shock right now. THANK YOU. Lovely long review and so many compliments and e I do't even know what to say.
I'm so so glad you like it. See, I can't bring myself to write all the other stuff. I don't know, I suppose I just like writing plot so everything else just goes out the window :P The potions lessons was fun, though :D Very fun. I got the idea from the HBP textbook, actually. Yes, it is supposed to be a bit of Lily's diary, in a way. Since she is a journalist.
Ee, comments on characterization are always the best. Because since I tend to be so plot focused, I kind of rely on the plot to reveal a character, and I never know if I've done it or not. It makes me so happy that you like her. Like omg. You don't even know.
No, I could never make this a Lily/Scorp story. Huge ScoRose fan here :P I love Luna too much to not write about her son in a next gen. They really do need more love.
This review is so amazing. I can't even tell you. I think I'm going to go finish chapter 6 now, because people like you make me want to keep writing! Gaahhh, thank you! So so much. :D
