OH. MY. CAN'T EVEN.
Alright, so let me preface this with yet another fangirly gem of mine. (Your stories and graphics just inspire fangirly gem after fangirly gem.) Prior to reading this, I glimpsed that it was your fic and already knew that it was going to be just spectacular. (And I was right!) Seriously, I'm just a huge fan of anything that comes out of your lovely brain in general. Anyway, right off the bat, I was psyched to read this.
And then you opened with slightly mad, befogged Scorpius and precious (yes, he's just precious), logical Albus, and I was hooked. Like a fish. Or a pirate. Or various other things that are hooked.
"Scorpius chose not to say anything rude to his (only) friend, on the grounds that he was, after all his (only) friend." I feel like that really sums up the bromance of Scorbus, but in a kind of sweet, sincere, no-nonsense sticking-together way. I absolutely love the way you've characterized both of them, and I know I'll be shipping this Riders of Brohan thing they've got going till the end of time.
As for Sophie, you had me at "I couldn't help but over-hear your conversation with my Extendable Ears." YES. Just in so many ways, yes. She is perfect.
And Hengist?! I don't really even know how Hengist came to be, but I want him around. Moar Hengist, plz. Just his name alone inspires awe-inspired giggles. For some reason, I find myself picturing Shan Yu from Mulan or that ruffian with the hook from Tangled every time I read Hengist's name. I dunno, I'm not sure what purpose he serves, but he seems legit and quite cool, and I would love to see more of him. Wow, that turned into a bit more of a tangent than I was intending.
Anyway, all of this is to ultimately say that I would love you long time like Fergie if you updated, because this story is utterly brilliant.
Author's Response: Em you're kind of my fave and I basically just always want to hug you but I never can.
'Seriously, I'm just a huge fan of anything that comes out of your lovely brain in general.' I WORRY FOR YOU. *ahem* thank you? I don't even know how to reply to that but now I just feel massively pressurized because Em reads and likes my stuff you guys. THANKS FOR THAT EM.
'Or various other things that are hooked' Let me love you? You are more precious than Scorpius.
RIDERS OF BROHAN omg I am on the floor laughing so hard Em why do you do this. I ship them terribly hard too, and it's also why I even wanted to write this stupid story but oh well. Will have to put bromance on the back burner till I can get some plot going ;c
Since you asked and made such brilliant references, THERE WILL BE MORE HENGIST. And I definitely will try to update as soon as humanly possible at this point. Thank you so much Em seriously I heart you big time â¥â¥â¥
