Despite Rose and Krumís obvious physical connection, I like how youíve showed that theyíre also growing closer with telling each other about things, it really is lovely to see, and you can tell how they actually do have things in common. I like how Krumís changed Rose, itís really lovely to see, and you wouldnít expect someone in such a bad way to have a positive effect on someone else.
Regina sounds interestingÖ I didnít expect another nice person after Liddy, but I didnít expect a demonic person! I wonder whether Krumís just making her out to be like that for another reason, or whether she really would string Rose up by her ankles. Even though Krum denied that anything happened in his childhood the mention of him buying his childhood home makes me think that there is, as it does seem all rather odd, buying the land, only living there when he has to, getting it in an illegal way. Itís so pitiful to see him like this.
In chapter 12 I think you forgot to include a space here Ė ĎAnd she was just about to remind him of all thiswhen she noticed the corners of his mouth twitching upwardí :)
The wedding sounded very interesting! I wonder if Rose is going to bring Krum, and if so how will the older generation react to him being there. I have this sinking feeling about Albus and Amelia, the fact that theyíre expecting a baby and now this rushed wedding, it sounds as if itís a recipe for disaster.
Ok I was wrong Rose is already in the disaster zone, not Albus and Amelia! I certainly wasnít expecting those turn of events, but now I think about it seems almost inevitable that it had to end up like that. I love how Heart reacted to it, he didnít seem annoyed that she got caught, but more annoyed about the fact she slept with him! Merlin, I guess Iím going to find about the parents reaction now and I really donít want to see it.
I found it so funny that Rose was trying to deflect the attention off her and onto Albus instead, even though she knew that she would have to face her parents soon. Then the way Hermione just mentioned that she was surprised Rose was writing again, I was just sitting there thinking of all the things you could comment on, and you choose to say that!
I loved this line it was so perfect for Ron Ė ĎWhat, just because I think the man is one rung up from pond scum means I must be jealous of him?Ēí I agree with Hermione though. It must have been bad enough for him to have his wife date a famous quidditch star, then the said man begins dating his daughter he is bound to be confused and slightly jealous about the whole situation.
Da-dun-dan! What a cliff-hanger to end it on with Regina at the door! Iím glad Iím reading it with it being completed as I get to find out happens next straight away!
Author's Response: Hi, p_c!! I tired really hard to show lots of angles of the relationship. Sometimes it's physical, sometimes it's a little more like two people just enjoying each other's company. At least that's what I was going for.
I know you've read the rest of the story already, but it's really fun to read your comments on Regina! I guess you know by know how terrible she was. I have some thoughts on Krum's childhood in my head, but it's more personal back story than anything relevant to the plot. To me, his later problems in life are more the result of being so famous at a young age than a traumatic event or neglectful parents.
lol, Rose's problems are making Albus and Amelia's relationship look like a perfect match. I think these two will be okay though. They'll find a way to be good parents... somehow.
I'll admit, I baulked a little at Hermione coming totally clean about her and Krum. I could pretend I did it so the reader can imagine whatever they want about what kind of relationship they had as teenagers, but mostly I was just a chicken about it when it came time to put all the cards on the table.
Yea!! I'm so glad you liked that line. Ron is so fun to write but it can be tough to get him and Hermione right. I think they both have a point. Ron IS a father, so it's hard to blame him for not being thrilled about Rose dating someone with Krum's problems (and him being so much older). But Hermione knows him well enough to know that at least a tiny bit of his anger is some residual resentment from all those years ago.
Thanks so much for reviewing! I'm so glad the story is holding your interest :)
