I'm really enjoying your development of the story. The Rose/Scorpius pairing is one of my favourites, but is generally so overdone as to be extremely predictable and boring. However, you've taken a different tactic than most with their personalities, and - I'm not sure that "admiration" is the right word to describe each one's inclination toward the other - Rose and Scorpius seem to have a begrudging respect and understanding of each other that can ultimately lead to a deeper connection. You also don't glorify the characters as some authors tend to do - for example, Rose's nature is rather nuanced and complex compared to the typical teenaged rendering, and you're not afraid to show potential "weaknesses" on the part of any character. The intrigue outside the Rose/Scorpius pairing (e.g., getting the reader to wonder what McLaggen is up to with respect to both Rose and Lucy) provides additional incentive to stay involved with the story. There are occasional grammar and spelling errors, but overall, well done - I can't wait to see what happens next!

Author's Response: Hello R o s m e r t a,

Thank you so much for taking the time to read and review this story and I am so sorry it has taken me so long to respond. Rose and Scorpius are one of my favourite pairings too but like you said, most of their stories are fairly predictable so I thought I would try something a little different. I have tried to capture my characters as slightly more realistic than they are often portrayed (even if this is not a particularly realistic storyline) and I am glad you like them. I like to show their weaknesses as I feel it makes the more identifiable with the reader so thank you! A begrudging respect is probably the best way to describe the relationship between them at the moment. McLaggen is a curious character and his part in the story is far from over. I apologise for and grammar and spelling errors and I hope to edit these chapters at a later date.

Again, thank you for reading and reviewing and I hope you return to read more. The next chapter is in the queue and will hopefully be up in a day or two but I have been having a little trouble with validation. Thanks you!
