I've read this before but I'm just now posting a review.

As far as parodies go, this one is fantastic. It really dramatizes the overly-done Rose/Scorpius pairing (not that I don't like the pairing, but I feel like that's everyone's favorite just because Ron dissed Scorpius in the epilogue).

You really have parodies down to a science, I think. It was overly-exaggerated in some parts - the exploding Astoria, the rhinestone suit - but not so overly-exaggerated as to where the story was so ridiculous you felt embarrassed to be reading it. I love the idea of the Tower of Love and the way you describe it is fantastic. It sort of leaves you breathless, like entering a big city for the first time and seeing all the lights and cars and people. I like the idea of the next generation being a bunch of wild childs, almost like they're saying "my parents are famous, and I'll never live up to killing the Dark Lord or fighting in the most legendary battle of our time so instead I'll just drink and party and have a good time."

All in all, just . . . fantastic. (:

Author's Response: What I find funny about this oneshot is that I never would've guessed that I'd end up using this exaggerative humor so much in the WIPs I write now. It's kind of like ~the first one~ that would foreshadow the rest.

The Tower of Love is Broadway and Vegas smooshed together, with the very best sequins and feather boas the two have got to offer. There was originally a song and dance, but unfortunately can't have those in non-song fics. And obviously, after the war, the only interesting thing that ever happens at Hogwarts are the Weasleys' dating lives 8D
