Hello there!

I really love the interactions you write between Rose and the rest of her family. The last scene was particularly enjoyable- I love the idea of Arthur cracking up because Scorpius now works in the Misuse of Muggle Artefacts Office. Didn't Arthur once work there himself? Perhaps this example of how different Scorpius is from his family will help to further soften Rose's family's reactions to him. *crosses fingers*

The incident in the shop with George was also great. I really liked how he just gave them to her free of charge - as Rose said, her family can really be there for her when she needs it. After all, what's a few galleons compared with Rose's safety on dangerous cases?

I think that you're doing a fantastic job with your characterization as well as your description. Everything flows so smoothly and the characters really are dynamic.

I'm also really happy that Rose has finally found a lead - Fred certainly had a good idea about looking through his belongings (how come Rose didn't think of that earlier? :P ). Perhaps she can finally move along with the case and come closer to actually catching the man (although that will bring her in closer to the danger of whatever it is that Butrus is involved in).

All in all I think that you did a great job with this chapter. I really enjoyed reading it and will now proceed to the next one! :D

Author's Response: Hiya!

I love writing Weasley family scenes. Arthur did indeed used to have that job, and Lucius Malfoy mocked him for it, so seeing Lucius's grandson working there is definitely going to amuse Arthur. They definitely have reservations about Scorpius - it would be hard not to given all the things the Malfoys did to the Weasleys - but they do understand that Scorpius isn't responsible for that history and is quite different from his father and grandfather.

I imagine George probably gave her free samples pretty regularly after this - once he realizes he can keep her in one piece by giving her things he can well afford. I'm sure he'd needle Ron about it though ;)

Rose doesn't always think things through, or notice the obvious. Fred is a better sidekick than she thinks, at least until there's some action happening, then he's useless.

Thank you very much for the review!
