I am in danger of addiction. I really like this chapter. They're grabbing me more and more. We've had a more of an insight into Rose and her life. The starting line just made me snort with laughter, about the high-heels...I know that feeling all too well.

The language in here is flowing so smoothly. Sometimes when I read fics, I find myself skipping over some parts, or reading really fast, but not this time. I was as if glued to the chapter, reading every word. I also liked Al's visit. They seemed to have a nice relationship, even though they've obviously grown apart. The dialogue between them felt familiar and close, I really liked it. Also, it wonderfully showed how stubborn and sort of looking-for-a-conflict Rose might be. As in, you said something, and now she just won't drop it. It reminded me of both Ron and Hermione in different situations, so kudos for that. I like seeing Rose reflect some of R/Hr's traits, because I basically adore them to the moon! I also sympathize with Rose a lot because her living arrangements and daily schedule reflect mine a bit. Also in the point of having to listen to a friend complain about a relationship going through the same issues and no advice will ever help. I wonder why Rose got so immersed in her job in the first place, whether it was just naturally and the job was unexpectedly busy, or whether she went willingly into it, seeking to seclude herself somehow? I'm just speculating because I'm really liking the character you're giving her so far.

Mrs. Larson is really an old bat. You described the nosy snooping neighbor aspect about her spot-on. I've had a neighbor like that and I didn't even need to be a witch. It also sort of gave me a strange feeling how she jumped at Rose. Foolish Muggles, freaked out by anything a little unusual!

The letter at the end just killed me. I loved how apparent it was who wrote it. You really managed to give Heart a voice that is certainly recognized, lol.

It's midnight here and I really have to get back to my heaps of home work, so I'll stop for now, but I'll definitely be back. :) This is great so far!

Author's Response: You are spoiling me way too much with all these wonderful reviews. I can't thank you enough for all the time you've taken to post them.

I'm so glad you're liking Rose so far. I'd be lying if I said there wasn't a bit of me in her, at least in terms of her current stage in life -- starting a career, tiny apartments, not seeing much of old friends. I think there are some truths about being in your 20's that even wizards can't escape. And I'm so glad you see Ron and Hermione in her. I've really been working hard to craft her as a character I could honestly believe had been raised by the two of them. They pop up more in later chapters. If you read on that far, I hope you find I did them justice.

Ahhh, good old Mrs. Larson. I too have had a few less-than-wonderful neighbors in my day. They do seem to be everywhere.

Thanks again for the R&R!!
