Hey Amanda!

It was interesting to see how much Rose concentrated on covering up all the flaws in her appearance. It seems as if she really does have some body image issues, she seemed to be trying to do it with so much precision for something which is usually an everyday task, so it kind of surprised me. Though you did mention earlier that she wasnít as pretty as Lily, so it may stem from that.

I really liked how we got to learn more about Lily in this chapter. It was funny to see her take charge of Albus even though he was meant to be their manager and older brother. She did seem to have a lot of useful advice though, and I guess it is a little too soon for him and Darcy. Though the way he kind of blew it last time, means that he will have to make it up with her. It was interesting to see him in such a decrepit state afterwards, as it implies that he was affected by it more than heís letting on.

I thought it was really interesting to learn more about the preparation for the cover shoot. Iím probably one of the few liking it so much, but it was interesting to make comparisons between that and muggle journalism and see how similar it is.

So Darcy still thinking about Albus then? It was rather sweet to her thoughts about him, as you could tell how much she had noticed his actions, especially his awkward smile. I guess they are kindred spirits in a way, as they both do seem not as accustomed to the world of fashion as the others do. I also liked Albusí reactions to certain things, and how much he seemed to be affected by some of Darcyís comments, I guess there is still hope on that front.

Another great chapter, and I will check out Post Scriptum, but I have a French and German speaking exam coming up, so it wonít be until after next Tuesday!

I guess I hadn't really thought of it that way, but it makes sense that Rose could come across as having body issues, given her dedication to her appearance in this chapter. I think that adds a whole new layer to her!

I have kind of a soft spot for Lily II. She and Albus are my favorite next-gen characters (and maybe Scorpius). I think she can be very rational, and I wanted to emphasize that not all models are shallow and stupid. I also thought it would be good to show that Albus was feeling about as good about his evening with Darcy as Darcy was at the end of the last chapter. I think they both feel somewhat awkward around each other after their little "misunderstanding," and it will take some work from someone to get them back on track.

I think it's cool that you like it! I know nothing about journalism, so this is just my best guess at how the process might go. I feel like there would be a lot of stuff--fittings, photos, etc.--crammed into a few hectic weeks before the big event.

They are kind of like kindred spirits. Both volunteered to join this world, but neither feels entirely at home in it. I would say that there is definitely still hope for them yet :)

Thanks for your awesome review! You are so sweet for being willing to check out Post Scriptum, so please, take your time. (And good luck on your exams!)
