Hey! It seems so weird that this will be my last chapter for a while! I mean, I knew that there were only five, but I feel like it's been a lot more than that. I don't know what I'm going to do without my most loyal review requester. :P
Anyway, you mentioned in your last response to my last review that I might be a lot like Ellie. I can see that. I mean, I do what I can to avoid people who aren't my closest friends, especially early in the morning. There are other reasons too, but that's really it. I can only hope that I'm as witty and clever as she is though. I just kind of want to be her. She's pretty cute. I mean, I'll leave behind all the ghostie business, but other than that, she's pretty darn cool. :P
Haha, anyway this was a fairly uneventful chapter. I'm not sure what to comment on, other than ScoRose is almost a thing and that makes me giddy. I do love me some ScoRose. They're precious and perfect. I like how you write them together. I'm glad they aren't like any other couple from previous generations (Jily for example) because Rose and Scorpius aren't other couples. They are ScoRose and no one else is. They are different people in a different relationship (I wonder how many different ways I could rephrase the same sentence. :P ) and I hope you remember that as their relationship grows and develops. :)
I would also like to say that I kind of liked the insight to Ellie's everyday routine. Get up early, run for an hour, go to breakfast, be antisocial until the caffeine kicked in, and then go to class. It was nice to see what she likes to do, other than explore walls in the library. ;P
This was a good, if short, chapter. I hope you remember to request the next chapter when it gets validated in January (assuming you finish it by then, I mean) :)
Author's Response: Haha, that's so sweet of you! Now someone else will probably get a chance to finally request :P
I'm glad that you find yourself relating to Ellie a lot. You had these fantastic ideas about where Ellie and Al's relationship would go in your last review, and I was like "THAT'S EXACTLY WHAT ELLIE DOES WITH POOR ROSE AND SCORPIUS IN THE NEXT CHAPTER OMG" And I dunno... I'd kinda want to do the whole ghostie thing, except that I write this in a way where Ellie finds it really annoying, but I watched too much Ghost Whisperer to really hate the ability.
I thought about writing ScoRose like Jily, actually, but then Ellie and Al have a really Jily dynamic already, and I thought that maybe I should use just one cliche once per story. I've never really read stories where their relationship develops in the background, so it'll be interesting to write their journey through Ellie's eyes.
Ellie is borderline OCD about her routine. She gives Rose a lot of flack over her obsession with the prefects' roster, but if it happened to Ellie, she'd be having a fit.
Thanks so much for your wonderful reviews! They've been such a pleasure to read, and I really appreciate your wonderful support!
