I'm here with a review (my last for the challenge, you're probably sick of my by now)

Believe it or not, I've never liked the Rose I've read in a lot of fanfics- the brainy, studious girl who somehow manages to turn into a gorgeous girl and get Scorpius. Or worse, and already gorgeous girl initially denies her love for Scorpius yet marries him 25 chapters later.

Hence you can imagine my hesitation to click on your story, but boy am I glad I did. I love your Rose, the forgettable unimpressive girl who really doesn't have anything to her name. I like how Hugo gets to be the brainy one for a change. What I like most of all, is that Rose is close friends with a squib. Squibs are so underrated these days.

The opening was interesting with the way you described how chaotic the Daily prophet was just before the latest issue was to be released. It was the perfect way to jump into a story.

Rose is so desperate to live up to what she thinks everyone thinks she should be (wow, that's one confusing sentence). She appears to like being alone, focused one what she's doing. She's very ambitious a tiny resemblance of her mother I suppose. You also given her the habit of making lists and being organized, I think.

You introduced Rose's friend Loran Scamander an said that he was different from the rest of his family. How so? Were they all crazy magizoologists like I pictured Luna would be? Just a thought I hoped you could elaborate on :)

Rose's shock and happiness over the her sudden assignment is quite comical. And realistic. I could so imagine myself saying the exact same things.

Just when I thought that you had decided to reveal Scorpius only in the next chapter, you write that last sentence! Now, I'm left to wonder how exactly Rose knows Scorpius what what in the name of Merlin is he going in Egypt. I shall break off from here to read the rest of this story before my brain goes haywire with anticipation!

Author's Response: I could never be sick of this amazing reviews! I know what you mean about that portrayal of Rose though because that's why I chose to write this story in attempt to freshen Scorose up a bit!

I'm so glad that I've made you love my Rose though. I wanted to make her the person people think they are at times because I rarely ever see that in fanfiction. I have soft spot for squibs so course they're in there!

I have given her that habit because even though she distances herself from her family she still feels this pull towards them at times. It's sort of progressive thing if you carry on reading and hopefully she manages to sort out her and her mother's relationship by the end.

Thanks for pointing that out! I have a habit of throwing things without continuing them on, I'll sort it out now.

If you did carry on reading you would have found out in chapter two, if you didn't maybe this will tempt you into reading on. Thanks for these fab reviews, they've been so much fun to get :D
