Let me start off by saying I never liked Scorpius, and there are very few next-gens I like (one). It's so repetitive, Scorpius is normally annoying, cocky, best friends with Albus and paired up with a feisty Rose.
But this story is so beautiful it makes me want to cry. I love Lucy so much, she's always been my favorite of the next-gen characters and her parents are one of my favorite pairings (another reason I don't like next-gen, people always write them as if they're awful) I love your Lucy, she's no my head canon, the squib who studies physics (and considering I've studied some physics I understand the story, including the Schrodinger's Cat paragraph at the end) and I love your Scorpius, he's just so normal, he actually reminded me of someone I knew (who was a big jerk, but at the same time really nice, it's hard to explain), I've seen some of your posts about how you believed he had asthma (or at least I think that was one of yours), you've created some of the best characters and placed them into a wonderful story.
Have you ever read a story/book and wanted to get to know the mind behind it? Because the story was just so good and you hope some of talent rubs off? That's how I feel right now with this story.
Anyway, thanks for writing this amazing story. I'm so glad I decided to read it. :)
Ps: I'm pretty sure this is the longest review I've ever written.
Author's Response: oh, I know what you mean! while I'll read it, I'm not a fan of the smarmy scorpius trope generally and it's nothing like the headcanon I have of him, so next-gen is a bit of a weird genre for me (I love it, but the next-gen fanon isn't something I like at all)
I could never be mean to percy, haha! I love him. he's so serious and severe but ever so slightly ridiculous at the same time - I've not read much of him in fic, but I always loved him in the books. and the asthma thing, haha...it's a really weird headcanon to have, but I have this really vivid mental image of this downtrodden boy clutching his inhaler and, yep, that's my scorpius.
aww, thank you so much! (p.s my mind is horribly mad and I'm not sure you want to get to know it, really)
thank you so much for reviewing and I'm really glad you enjoyed it :D ♥
