Review:Roots in Water says:
Hello there! It's me again! :)

Wow- what a change. You know, I hadn't ever really pictured Rose's wardrobe before, but now that I have the picture is quite funny. A Bounty Hunter, trying to catch people while wearing a shirt with a pink unicorn? I thought most people grew out of the phase of thinking that those sorts of shirts were the perfect thing to wear. But to each their own, eh?

Unfortunately, her new wardrobe is such a change! I hope Rose is comfortable wearing all of that leather. I also hope that you'll show us Scorpius' reaction to her change in wardrobe. I think it'll be interesting.

Mrs Kochel, though she seems gruff and unbending, is understandable. After all, she probably depends somewhat on their rent for her own provisions and having rent come in late is never good. At least she's willing to give them another chance.

It's too bad that she can't give Rose a description of the guy who came to see her (and I can't imagine that guy wanted anything good). However, it does fit in with what I know of Mrs Kochel. She doesn't really care who it was and so she didn't take any care to remember any details of the meeting. :P

I really liked the one line you wrote about how Rose had to deal with her mother's problems because she gave birth to her. It was very funny.

Once again, I really like your description and the personalities you have given your characters. You've done a good job of giving such a wide cast individual and recognizable personalities.

All in all, I think that you're doing a great job with this story. I look forward to reading on! Great work! :D

Author's Response: Her wardrobe is really ridiculous. But it suits her. She's flighty. Ever heard of Lisa Frank? Not sure if you're old enough to remember Lisa Frank, but google her - that's pretty much how I picture Rose's wardrobe. Pink and cartoony and with glitter. She never grew out of it, since she's still a bit childish at times. Switching to dressing in Molly's clothes with black leather and industrial effects is a huge change. It's just not her.

Mrs. Kochel is a bit mean, but she's not wrong - they owe her a bunch of rent and have pretty much never paid on time. They're lucky she's been as lenient as she has. Rose is a fast talker, so she gets a second chance.

Thank you so much! I'm glad you like the characterizations, I really loved writing this story and fell in love with Rose and Scorpius while doing so. Had to give them a sequel, and then a few more ;) Thanks again for reviewing!
