Happy New Year, Kiana! ♥
Ooh, this is such a great chapter! I love your introduction to Cairo, and the really great sense of atmosphere - the heat, the whole bustle of the souk, the dust and the setting of the perfume shop. I could really see it all so vividly, even in the cramped backroom, or office, and the tiny desk and chairs in the corner. And I love your portrayal of the Khan el-Khalili souk; I've actually been there, and it really is a vibrant chaotic place, full of narrow, cramped stalls and dark shops and twisty back lanes, and I think you did a fab job capturing all that.
Also, Dalila is a really interesting character. She does come off as rather shy and reserved, but she does open up to Rose in the interview, so it will be really interesting to see how her character develops as the fic progresses. And I love your introduction of Scorpius! Dressed in Muggle clothes and using a mobile. That's a pretty unusual way to write him, and I love it. He seems like this friendly, warm, down-to-earth fellow, not his usual swaggering fanfiction self. :P
Great chapter, Kiana! (This is a bit of a short review, but I'll be back to read more!) ♥
Author's Response: Happy New Year teh! ♡
I'm so glad that you liked it as it means a lot given that you've actually been to Khan el-Khalilli. I went to quite a few when I was in Morocco though they were nothing compared to the size of that one, so yay for it being great. Ah, just thinking about the souks makes me want to go back there because you never know what you might come across next :P
I'm glad you liked Dalila because a soft spot has grown for her :P The shyness comes from both cultural things, and having such a large family and getting overshadowed but hopefully Rose will change her. Haha, the swaggering self is fun from time to time, especially in parodies, but I figured he must have a real self too :P
Thanks for such a great review, teh, it's not even short compared to some I've gotten!
