Why hello new chapter. It's great to see Vivian again!!!
I really like that Scorpius has a sister because he's normally an only child. And that she's named after Lucius.
I love that she and Scorp are really close and that he stay with her. I was upset with Albus because her didn't turn up when Vi needed him the most.
I was slightly confused when Vi was by her mum's gravestone. You said she was sobbed into Albus' robes but if Al wasn't there, then how could she? Or did you mean Scorpius/James?
One other thing, Lily has brown eyes not blue.
I think the Vi and Lily bonding is really sweet, especially as we haven't seen a lot of Lily. I was nearly in tears, there are no words to describe this chapter. All of Vi's feelings are spot on and I feel so bad for her. And the fact the Potter's and Some of the Weasley were at the funeral as well, I thought that was a nice touch.
This chapter is full of feels!!!
When Ginny said "You know you can always call here you home, donít you" It just tipped me over the edge and I had to wipe away a tear. Vi's never really had a home apart from Hogwarts and it's so sweet of Ginny to say that. ♥ ♥ ♥
Aww Albus, Ohmygod!! I can't believe he said he would always be waiting for Vi. He's so adorable, where can I find a guy like him?
The moment between Vi and Al at the end, awww. I am literally awwing out loud. It's just so adorable and I love it. I'm so glad that Al no longer hates Vi and he's taking an intrest in her and the baby. ♥

Author's Response: Hey Soph,
It's nice to see you again too :) sorry it took me so long to update, I hope the next update will be quicker.
I loved giving Scorpius a sibling because somehow I don't think Draco would have wanted only one child because of what he went through on his own as a kid. I think he would have wanted his children to at least have someone else, a sibling, who was going through the same things as them, especially with all the stigma attached to a Malfoy name. And Luciana is such a sweet little thing. I can't really say why I named her after Lucius but the name just seemed sort of fitting.
Scorpius is like Vivian's brother, they have known each other since birth and he is the one person in her life that she would trust all her secrets too. Hell, he's the only one who knows all her secrets. Albus is going through a lot of mixed feelings at the moment, he is torn between loving Vivian and hurting from her betrayal.
Thanks for pointing that out, I might have to make that a little clearer. It was actually Albus who was the last pall bearer of her mother's coffin so he was actually there, Vivian just didn't see him properly. He was just not sure if she wanted him there, or how he should act around her. I'm going to do a one shot from his point of view of Vivian's mother's death which might help clear up what he is thinking.
Ah yes, I don't know if you've checked out my blog but it has picture of my character's face claims and the one for Lily has blue eyes. I know it isn't strictly cannon but I figured it wasn't too much of an issue, especially as a lot of people on her mum's side of the family, if not her mum, have blue eyes. So yeah, I took a bit of writer's freedom on that one.
Lily seems a bit forgotten in my stories which never strikes me as fair so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to introduce her and give her perspective on things.
The Potters (and therefore the extended Weasley clan), despite all the circumstances, view Vivian as part of their family and therefore would be there for her whenever she needed them, especially at a time like this.
There is a lot of emotion in this, I am never sure how much to put in before it goes completely over the top. So thank you very much for that.
For me, Ginny is quite a mother figure, much like her own mother and she watched Harry grow up without a real home and she just wants Vivian to know in the same way that Harry knew, that she is a part of their family. I loved writing that bit.
That whole part was completely unexpected, I hadn't intended for them to talk for a while yet but this just popped into my head and it fitted much better than my previous plan. Despite everything, he loves her and he always will be there for her. He just need to sort out his own life first. (As for where to find one like him, I have no idea but if you manage to find out, please let me know).
Awww... Thank you. I don't think he ever really hated her. He could never hate her. He was just really hurt. But things are far from over yet.
Thank you so much for a wonderful review and I hope to update soonish,
