Hello there! Hopefully you aren't getting sick of the reviews. :P

I enjoyed this chapter, especially because Rose seems to finally be getting somewhere with Butrus' skip (although I'm not sure I'm following her thought process one hundred percent. But I am sure that I'll catch up at some point :P).

It was interesting to see Rose and Scorpius interact with Scorpius' parents. That scene reminded me of the scenes in "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" where Ian's parents were so silent during their dinners together... Those silences and strained conversations seem so uncomfortable! I would have thought that Draco would have changed since the war- would have become warmer, less rigid - since he had a near death experience and would have had to live in a world where Voldemort lost and his old views were very outdated, but I suppose it wasn't to be. It's kind of sad, actually, that Scorpius prefers Rose's family, whose older generation still doesn't accept him one hundred percent.

Rose's interaction with Victoire was great, as per usual. My favourite part of that scene was when Victoire said "Bugger off, my love" in a very happy and loving tone. The difference between the tone and the actual words struck a very funny comparison to me. :)

Anyway, I do hope that Rose finds more concrete detail on Butrus soon. Her tale about how Angelo found someone two years after they disappeared off the grid was amusing, but Rose doesn't have that sort of time. :(

All in all, I think that this was a very enjoyable chapter and I am eager to see Rose's progress on the case. One thing I particularly enjoy is how you're weaving the rest of Rose's life into the story of her catching Butrus. Great work! :D

Author's Response: Nope, not getting sick of them at all! I love reading reviews, and yours are really making me smile.

I'm not sure Rose always follows her own thought process 100 percent. Sometimes she leaps merrily to conclusions. :p

Visits to the Malfoys are sort of the polar opposite of visits to the Weasleys. I can't see Draco changing much - he did change enough that he still has a relationship with the son who was a Hufflepuff, has zero interest in any of the things Draco values, and ran off with a half-blood Weasley girl. So I suppose that is a rather big change for someone like Draco, but he's not going to morph into a warm and fuzzy guy really. At least not in my stories! Scorpius just doesn't fit in with his family, and he fits much better with Rose and her cousins. He'll get along better with her parents and the older Weasleys as time goes by.

Victoire talking to her kids is always fun to write ;) The high-pitched happy mum voice cracks me up, and I'm glad you liked that line since it's one of my favorites in this story. And it's our introduction to Johnny Lupin!

Rose definitely doesn't have two years to waste. She'll catch him in the end, but you'll have to keep reading to see what happens ;) Thank you so much for reviewing!
