Hey there! Merry Christmas! I hope you enjoy your holidays and get a ton of pretty gifts to enjoy until the coming Christmas! Oh, and let all the family gatherings encourage the growth of new plot bunnies!

Anyway. I absolutely adore this piece! And I've come past it at the right time because I've been dealing with life the way Scorpius is! The concept that you've decided to incorporate here is lovely and incredibly easy to relate to! And you know what? Scorpius is quite right! You just go back to being a kid that saw everything as a miracle, read fairytales, and had no responsibilities --just imagination! It really is lovely!

And Scorpius himself! I. Adore. Him. I already love Scorpius and I'm usually very picky regarding the stories I read about him, and I really like yours! He's different from all the depressed, mean, self-centered Scorpius's we see around sometimes. Seeing him here makes me think about the way Draco and Astoria may have raised him. It seems as though they've done a good job. Or they didn't and this was Scorpius's way of coping. Whichever way, it was so enjoyable to read about him in this light!

Rose was great too! You gave her a very distinctive voice and you made it really easy to understand where all her anger comes from. And the fact that Ron's dead --that was a lovely touch and gave such depth to the story even though it was just mentioned briefly.

What I loved the most about this story though is how it's not just romance or just friendship. What happened between Rose and Scorpius here doesn't fit into their usual bubbles. This was just, to me, the little event that takes place and keeps you smiling for a long time afterwards. They're the little moments we think back to when things get bad.

As for critique... I think you could've worked with some more description. Children see before they feel. They notice the colours, the texture, the shapes. They're attracted to things that make sounds. They revel in the physical beauty of the objects around them, even if they're simple objects. You described emotions wonderfully and showed how each thing Rose and Scorpius came upon made an impact on Rose from the emotional side. But like you've made me feel things, I would've liked to see them too.

So yeah. I'm so, so happy I came across this story. And the banner is gorgeous too, by the way. You've done a marvellous job!

Clue: I like medical-esque stories. :D
