Oh man. I LOVE this, reckless as Scorp is. The initial reaction of wanting to get the hell OUT of there, and then staying because Al wasn't budging, and THEN basically sacrificing himself like a complete Gryffindor fool for the cause ... I love him.

Haha, typical Scorp, that the Red Caps wanting his blood to stay alive is FINE, but the minute they want it for vanity, THAT'S NOT HAPPENING.

And only Scorpius would manage to Stun HIMSELF. What a complete idiot, haha. Love Rose's genuine worry for him. Oh, she cares. She CARES. Yeah, Enervate not Finite Incantatum blah blah blah but you know that so all is good.

Aside from the obvious thing coming from this chapter - REDCAPS? What is happening here? - this demonstrates the best of Scorpius superbly. He's not necessarily willing to put his life on the line straight away, especially if it's blatantly obvious that the odds are stacked against him, but he'll do it FOR ALBUS. It's such an incredible sign of solidarity, and I guess that's the reward you get for having such a good heart and extending a hand of friendship to a Malfoy. Ugh I love Scorbus. They almost shouldn't be Slytherins, with all of this "stand by each other" stuff. Stick 'em in Hufflepuff! More please :)

Author's Response: This chapter really is Scorpius at his best, and does show how Albus brings out the best in him. It's not strictly how he stayed JUST for Albus (though that was a little bit it), but Albus works very much as his conscience, reminding him what's at stake. So it's a combination of loyalty and being persuaded. There's plenty more to come on the history of Albus and Scorpius - Scorpius and his Women aren't the only mysteries in this story! - but you're right, their relationship and its history is super important. In many ways, Albus saved Scorpius from who he could have grown up to be.

But they are both definitely Slytherins. Scorpius for reasonably obvious reasons, though I know Albus totally doesn't appear like a Slytherin. Give him time!

And, of course, Scorpius' priorities are totally straight when it comes to his dignity. Blasted Redcaps. Their presence is explainable, have no fear, and all part of the Wider Plot. As is the Finite Incantatum (incoming edit justifies its usage better).

Fortuitously I am making grand progress with Ignite for NaNo (well, I'm on target) so there's not just the extant buffer to work through, but 2 and a half chapters from the last week and a bit already. Thanks for reviewing!
