A Weasley Christmas story, I'm sold!! :)

How sweet that Scorpius and Rose have been dating for ten years--and I love that she's skittish about commitment. I like seeing how authors give Next-Gen characters traits from their parents, and I feel like this is probably a part of Hermione's independence being passed on? :) How very sad that Molly never knits a sweater for Scorpius, even after all those years!

I love this line: No one did chaos quite like Rose Weasley. That says so much about their characters; how she's unpredictable at times and how he's drawn to that.

Fleur and Scorpius's bonding moment was particularly touching. I can imagine them clearly, cast off to the side, the only blondes in a sea of redheads. They come from similar backgrounds of wealth and coldness, I'd imagine, and it makes perfect sense for them to be connecting the way they did.

Oh my god. Trying not to cry at the last paragraph. How sweet that Scorpius wants one of these jumpers so badly; the thing that Ron, the twins and Ginny always received with reluctant smiles. This is a really touching story; I'm so glad I read it. I'm adding it to my favorites. :)

Author's Response: Who doesn't love a Weasley Christmas! ;)

I think Rose's skittishness about commitment is a bit of both her parents, really. And a lot of all her own neurosis. I like to give the Next Genners bit of their parents but make them their own people too.

Molly wouldn't warm too quickly to a Malfoy, I think. That's a lot of bad blood between the two families. Scorpius's grandfather, after all, nearly got Molly's only daughter killed in an attempt to get her husband fired. I doubt she'd want to have him hanging around much. But eventually she can accept him, since Rose likes him and he's so different from his family.

Rose is chaos embodied, for sure. She's a mess. Good thing Scorpius is there to feed her and do the washing-up.

I think Fleur is really the only one who can get what Scorpius goes through to join the Weasley family. Similar lack of welcome, though I think Scorpius would have it worse. And I do picture Scorpius from a background of wealth and coldness, but Fleur's dad was very friendly and affectionate. She's a bit snobbish but not really cold. Or at least I never got that impression. Hmm.

Eventually Scorpius gets a jumper. The Weasley kids wouldn't appreciate them properly but I think the Weasley grandkids would like them better, even while mocking them, because it's long-standing family tradition by then. And Scorpius wants one so he can be part of that.

Thank you so much for the review! I'm really glad you enjoyed the story.
