Hey! Here with a review! Congratulations on reaching 1,000 reviews, by the way. This one is my 40th. I feel so unaccomplished :P
Anyway, I must admit that I have been a very bad HPFFer. I've actually read this chapter before and didn't leave a review. Gah, me and my procrastination. Thanks for asking me to leave a review because this story really deserves more!

Rose is such an enthusiastic first timer that it makes me want to laugh. I love the descriptions of the dry ground and the perfumes and...practically everything! It really helped me form a mental picture of the chapter. I've never actually been to Egypt, but this was an awesome substitute. I think that;s the best part about reading. You get to travel the world from the comfort of your own bedroom :)

First timer though she may be, Rose seems to have the knack for reporting. Dalila came across as a rather enigmatic character who seemed to have a lot of secrets within her. It's great that Rose managed to get past her armour and from the way the two of them behaved, it was almost like they were friends.

Finally, Scorpius makes an appearance. Wearing converse and carrying a cell phone. I'm curious to know how Draco is taking his son's transformation. Curse breaking in Egypt sounds like such a cool profession, the tombs are said to be crawling with them!

I spotted the nervousness between the two of them. Ah, the two lovebirds. Can't wait until you realize your romantic feelings several chapters later. See, this is what happens when I read too much fan fiction. I start talking to the characters :)

One thing that got me thinking was the second last line of the chapter. You wrote about how Scorpius' went against his family's expectations while she could not. Is Rose unhappy with how her life is turning out? Does she have other things that she wants to pursue?

I was also suddenly reminded of the fact that the Weasleys had already been to Egypt before when Ron was twelve. Perhaps they gave some helpful advice to Rose as well? It's just a thought :)

Anyway, this was another wonderful chapter and I shall be reading the rest of this wonderful story. Unless my horrid procrastination gets in the way ;) Congratulations once again!

Author's Response: Thanks, and don't feel unaccomplished, I have nothing better to do in my life other than hang out on HPFF :P Don't worry about the lack of reviews either, it's just nice to know that you like the story so much :P

I'm so glad that you liked Rose's enthusiasm, I suppose it's rather like mine whenever I experience something new which I really like. :P Yes, and with HPFF we get to experience magical worlds abroad which makes armchair travelling even more fun!

Rose has definitely had time to hone her reporting skills after all those years of dreaming so it was fun being able to give her a real task and a fun interviewee. I'm glad that you liked how Rose and Dalila bounced off one another as they do feature a lot more throughout.

Bahaha, I don't really explore his and Draco's relationship in this story but I wish I did now purely for that reaction. He's just so cool Scorpius, I almost wish I could be a girl version of him.

Aw, I know, seeing them like this makes me aw over them all day as it's so cute with the way they don't know what to do. It's cool, I once I had a dream I stared in a fan fiction story which was strange to say the least :P

Yes, she is rather unhappy because she feels so unsuccessful and rather downcast by the fact that the rest of her family are all doing so well and there's her only scraping a living as a reporter. She wants to be a star one, who gets all the covers I suppose but sadly lurks around the back pages.

Gah, how could I have forgotten that? Thank you so much for pointing out their trip there, I will definitely reference it later on :D

Thanks for such a wonderful review, and I understand procrastination so it's ok :P
