who hadn't got her Hogwarts letter at the age of eleven. The only Weasley who wasn't magical in the slightest. It was like being shown the gates of some fantasy land, and then, when finally permitted to enter it, being blindfolded.

^ Wow. I've never thought about Squibs, you know. We only meet two in Harry Potter and they aren't really focused on. We get more of Filch's feelings and we essentially know it's terrible for him to be a Squib when he so desperately wants to do magic.

It's kind of interesting to think about Lucy being a squib in the Weasley family because they all just seem like the type to endlessly...'breed' (that sounds horrible) children with magical abilities. I wonder how a squib becomes a squib...or well, why a person becomes a squib.

There's really no way to make that question sound any better (in my head).

Scorpius thinking he's one too? Well he has magical abilities but maybe...he just doesn't want to be magical? That's quite the concept.

Author's Response: (I just got your massive load of reviews so I would just like to say thank you x1million for leaving them, they really cheered me up! &hearts)

It's only in recent years, when I've become a hardcore member of the fandom and a fic author, that I've really given any sort of thought to squibs. I guess I just dissected my own feelings about being a scottish arteeste in a predominantly science-focused school in England and then exaggerated them for the purpose of this fic ;D

If I'd had the time or energy, I probably would have turned this into a much longer fic and explored a lot more of...er...squib-ery in depth. But I was just like...blargh let's just type and /not stop/. And this happened.

Thank you for the review! :D
