I unexpectedly fell for your story. I was looking for some light reading to get my head out of exams for a few hours. Came on HPFF to read about my new addiction (ScoRose). Came across your fanfiction. Is it mean of me to say that when I read your story description, I had already decided that I wouldn't like it? I started reading other fanfictions before coming back to yours (in search for something different). I started chapter 1, so sure that I would dislike it, and I ended up reading the whole story in one go. Now, I really need to go back to studying (unfortunately) but I can assure you that you'll see me around as soon as Uni get out of the way.
I don't know how to define your story except by saying it is unexpected, different, addictive. I like Rose's character, which is strange since I normaly don't like that type of characters. She is so intriguing. The more I get to know how she thinks, the more I want to know about her. I also like most of the supporting characters (I don't know how to call them otherwise), especially Lily, Albus, Dom, Louis (though we haven't seen him that much), Will, Pr Zabini and so many more.
Scorpius? I don't know yet. I'm still a little wary around his character. I absolutely like Rose but, him, I'm not sure yet. And, from the moment the character of Faye was mentioned, I knew she would bring angst/drama so I don't want to give my impressions yet about these two. Your story made me learn that I shouldn't be fooled by what meets the eye.
Finally, the last intriguing character for me is...Bethan March. That sounds stupid, right? There are so many characters with secrets/things I would want to know more about (James, Pollux, the Malfoys in general, the Granger-Weasleys...) and I choose her! Maybe I'm seeing too much into it but I wonder why she changed her attitude towards Rose from hostile to distant.
Well, there are so many things I want to comment about and I somehow want to compensate since I know I won't be able to come back for a few weeks but I guess this will do.
Oh! Before I forget, I have a question for Rose. Can I ask it here? I'm a little lazy to go back on Tumblr to ask there --by the way, this idea of a tumblr is just BRILLIANT and it's great to know more about your characters thanks to it. So, my question:
@Rose: "how far are you going to pull the pay-me-to-kiss-someone? If someone pays you to kiss him (or her lol!) for other reasons than testing faithfulness/breaking a couple, will you do it or do you think it will cross the line?"
That's really it now and sorry for this long, long comment.
Author's Response: Hello smrw,
Thank you so much. Well this is definitely much lighter than whatever Hermione was reading. That's fine, it's always good to get some criticisms, I think I'Âve changed the summary since you read it so hopefully this one is better. Thanks for coming back anyway and giving this story a chance!
I was a bit bored of reading the stereotypical versions of Scorpius and Rose - don'Ât get me wrong, I like it but sometime you can have too much of it -Â so I thought I would try something different and I'm so glad you like it. Well Rose is happy to have won you over, she is a very intriguing person indeed. Supporting characters works and don't worry we will see more of Louis and the rest later on!
Scorpius. He is a tricky one and Rose doesn'Ât particularly understand him which makes her wary around him as well. We'll just have to see if he can win you both over. Faye is an interesting character. I hope to get your impressions of them in later chapters then! Wow, what a compliment, thank you so much! I know I've made that mistake plenty in the past.
Aaah... Bethan March. She features in the next chapter (which is in the queue as we speak) and does something... rather unexpected. I was hoping someone would pick her out but you will just have to wait and see to understand her better.
Thank you so much for this lovely review and I'Âm so sorry it has taken so long to reply and update this story. But like I said, the next chapter is in the queue and hopefully updates will be more regular again.
Of course, I'll be cheeky and add it to tumblr via an anon question if that's okay?
I honestly couldn't say, I have never really thought about it before but I suppose it would depend on why they were asking me to do it. To be honest, money is money so I probably would do it for other reasons. It would really depend on their reason I guess.
Sorry to not be more specific,
Don't worry about it! I love long comments and I'm flattered you took the time to write so much! Hope to see you when the next chapter is validated,
