Review:Calypso says:
Hello there!

Ooh there were so many things I loved about this chapter! Your descriptions of Egypt continue to be amazing (I really want to go there now! :P) and I'm really enjoying the contrasts between all the cultures- wizard and muggle, and British and Egyptian.

It was really interesting to read from Scorpius' point of view for a while- he shed some interesting light on him and Rose. I like that you not only /told/ us that Scorpius is quiet and Ravenclaw-ish and Rose is brash and Gryffindor-ish, but that you /showed/ us how their personalities affect their lives.

And Rose is a cat-lover? I like her even more!

Dalila intrigues me. I like how her frienship with Rose seems to be developing, but I'm still wondering if she's hiding things... and why she doesn't like Scorpius... I am starting to love her grandfather though, he seems pretty awesome!

I really enjoyed Rashidi telling the story of Acanthus, and the mixture of derision and awe with which the family responded to it- it was all very atmospheric! I love myths and things, and the way you had Rashidi tell the story, it felt like a real legend. And now they're all going to search for it!
Rose's motivation for the trip seems completely realistic, especially as you've already set up the way she feels somewhat belittled within the Weasley family in previous chapters- I really like the way you've done that. And I also love the selection of characters you've got going with her- I'm looking forward to seeing all the dynamics between them!

This was another great chapter, possibly my favourite one so far, and I really can't wait to read on and find out more! ♥


Author's Response: Hi Bethany!

I'm so glad that you liked the descriptions of Egypt! I really hope they are realistic, because I'm basing them off of Morocco, so I don't want to crush your dreams! I've been working a lot on the show vs. tell, so it's great to see that it's paid off!

I really enjoy encorporating lots of house characteristics into their personalities, I don't really know why it's just a lot of fun! I'm glad that you liked Scorpius' POV, as I wasn't sure whether to include it or not, but variety makes it more fun for me!

Of course Rose is a cat-love, and it doesn't have anything to do with me being one too...:P

I'm glad that Dalila intrigues you and the friendship is going well, as her and Rose aren't that similar! I love writing her grandfather, as eccentric old people are surprisingly fun to write!

I'm so glad that you enjoyed it! I mean, I had fun writing it, but I wasn't sure whether it would be fun for the others given the amount of dialogue there. I love myths too, and I basically got to make my own one up here so it was so much fun!

Yay for it being realistic! I was slightly worried it had been a little rushed, so I'm glad to see that you didn't find it like that! Erm, those characters may be replaced by different ones soon! All I say is be on guard, and no more!

Thank your for another amazing review, and I hope you like the next chapter too! ♥
