Hello, I'm here with your dreadfully late and long overdue review which I do apologise for. I've been caught up in quite a few real life problems.

Anyway, I found this story to be really captivating. I really wanted to know more about the relationship between Rose and Scorpius. I felt so bad for Rose, I just wanted to be able to tell her that things will be okay. Your imagery was fabulous, it really brought me into the story and into Rose's pain. And for a couple of moments I really disliked Scorpius as it seemed like he was just toying with both Lily and Rose.

And I thought that Rose was an extremely strong person, after all that she's been through she doesn't let her jealousy get the better of her. She helps Lily out when Scorpius called her a mudblood and Rose doesn't taunt Lily even though she could of had.

I don't really know what else to say except your writing was perfect. I fell in love with this sentence "I would later reflect on this as the first of his betrayals but to her, or to me?". I think that it just really captures the essence of this story.

I really don't have any criticisms for you, this story was just perfect.

Author's Response: Hi Charlie! Thanks for stopping by :)

I'm happy to hear that the imagery worked for you and that you were intrigued by the Rose/Scorpius dynamic. I really wanted it to differ a lot from the fluffy, humorous feel I get from so many next-gen fanfics, while still deviating from being over-the-top dramatic. It's great that you felt some sympathy for Rose here, and I hope you felt a little for Lily too, because you're right, Scorpius didn't really treat either of them well in this story.

I felt like my Rose would have a lot of Hermione in her, though with a dash of Ron's temper and impulsive desires. She's sacrificial to a fault, and she's torn between wanting to be there for Lily and her own conflicted, confusing feelings about Scorpius.

That sentence seems to stick out to a lot of people, and I like it, too. I'm glad you felt like it was good for summing up the whole plot.

Well, I do like getting constructive critique, but I'm very flattered that you could find nothing to comment upon in that arena. Thanks again, so much, for your kind review :)
