I know that this was just a filter chapter but I really enjoyed it, it was strange to see how their seperate environments are soo similar yet different. I also weirdly like how Rose and Stacy aren't friends anymore, simply because it seems like Rose has tried to forget everything about her past because everything remind her of Scorp.
Also when I first saw Bryan and Stacy together I was shcoked but towards the end I really enjoed their company with one another and the fact that Scorp is the Godfather made me go 'aww'.
I love Roses reaction with the shower, it's like she just had to get rid of every memoryof him (linking back to stacy) even down to the blood under her nails, however, it would have been nicer to see an insight to what Scorpius thourght when he was alone because he would burden his friends with his problems when they obviously havetheir own things to be dealing with.
I love how Carla knows not to push Rose and she will wait for her to tell her when she is ready, andI know that Matt knows the same but I think that his frustration is going to get the better of him and that he is going to demand to know because when I think about it, it's not fair on him.
Lastly, this was a good chapter for a filter and I totally agree with Bryan... thursdays are the WORST! hahaa, thanks for the quick update, I hope to hear from you again soon, once again, long review, but I know you secretly love it :P
Author's Response: Yeah a lot of people had asked about the Stacy/Bryan relationship in Fighting Temptation and at first I had said absolutly not and that it was going to be Bryan/Vivian, but when I started to think about it I thought Bryan/Stacy would be a good fit because Bryan would loosen Stacy up a bit and Stacy would balance Bryan out.
I will tell you now that Rose and Stacy not being friends isn't because of her trying to forget about Scorpius. I mean she doesn't like to talk about her past and over the years she has become less willing to remember her past, seeing her life as always moving forward, but that wasn't something that she just decided to do it happened over time. The real reason why Stacy and Rose arn't friends anymore is because in reality you don't always stay in touch with your childhood friends, life gets in the way and you grow apart and I kind of wanted to portray that in this story. Right now, Scorpius isn't crazy about working with Rose, but at the current moment he is going through some issues himself so he is a bit distracted to focus solely on Rose. I will say that like Rose, who does deny it, there are feelings still there, but he has spent much more time fighting them and pushing them back, than Rose has so what he feels for Rose has soemwhat become apart of his every day life and he is able to handle it better.
Yeah Carla is going to be fun to right, just like Bryan. As for Matt I feel that he has stepped into the role that Albus and Hugo would play and he is very protective of Rose, not sure if he will be fun to right or if he will be a little bit annoying. I'm also not sure if Matt will demand to know whats going on, but he will push Rose a little more than Carla and he will become extermly frustraited with Rose for keeping secrets, because it isn't fair to him.
This was one of those filler chapters that I actually enjoyed writting and I really like it as a whole, don't know why. lol.
So you will hear from me every two weeks. This one just went up early because of the validation.
Oh and it is no secret that I love the long Reviews. Thanks Sora.
