Review:Gryffindor Secret Santa says:
Hello (:

Here's what I loved about this story.
You made something that I didn't necessarily like work.
And work not just being limited to making sense, but work as in I loved it!

See, I normally don't view Astoria Malfoy as someone cold and conniving and I don't normally view Draco and Astoria taking after Lucius and rigging systems because of money. So normally the whole conception of Malfoys being as bad as they were in the Hogwarts era doesn't really fly with me, but in here, it completely works.

I've always been a Rorpius fan but what I loved about Scorpius here was that he was willing to listen to his family's wishes, even though he realized he made a mistake later. You can't get anywhere without making mistakes and learning from it. But I also love that Scorpius didn't just completely ditch his family for his love. Sometimes, that's my problem; I dislike it when in Next Generation fanfics, Scorpius just completely dismisses his parents and becomes like an adopted child to the Weasley and Potter family. I dislike that so much because I don't think Scorpius is like that; in my mind, he and his parents are close, even if he yearns for a bigger family like the Weasleys and Potters. So I love that you didn't have Scorpius ditch his family, yet he still loved Rose so much that he realizes his mistake.

Also what I love was that you didn't make Rose out to be some crazy feminist because sometimes that pisses me off. The point of love and being crazy or blinded by love is that sometimes you do the wrong things and don't act a certain way you can. I love that Rose held on to as long as she did because to me, that shows more of her character than anything else. Her choosing to stay with Scorpius rather than literally completly forgetting about him shows that she is willing to go lengths for her love, and that's what I love. Yet at the same time, she realizes that she has to put herself first, and that gives Scorpius a wake-up call. The succession in which Rose does things makes me happy because there's that perfect balance between standing up for yourself and making sacrifices for love.

Overall, I love this one-shot.
You did very well with the characters and you made something that I didn't necessarily like, work.

Very good job and Happy Holidays (:
