I really liked the winter/ice metaphor at the beginning of the chapter. Probably because I'm an English nerd but I really loved the parallels between Scorpius' emotions and thoughts and the weather. And the plot twist! Quite exciting. I also think that your representation of the Draco-Scorpius dynamic is quite convincing and accurate. It's always bothered me when people either portray the Draco-Scorpius relationship as either too warm and loving (i.e. Draco loves everything Scorp does and accepts all his decisions) or too harsh. But you really capture the happy medium quite well and I feel so bad for Scorp trying to please his father at the expense of his dreams! One note: wouldn't Neville have replaced Sprout as the Herbology teacher by their second year? Unless you have him working as an asistant teacher, which is possible. Either way, yet another wonderfully compelling chapter and I can't wait to read more!

Author's Response: Wow, thanks so much for this review!
From one English nerd to another, I love using flowery language, but I try to moderate it in stories like this, mostly because I feel like it can sometimes alienate readers. However, you seem to really get it, which makes me ridiculously happy, so thanks for that!
Unrealistic Draco-Scorpius relationships irritate me, too. I tried to keep their dynamic as true to Draco's canon character - and my imaginary Scorpius's character - as possible and I hope I did a semi-decent job with it :).
And to address the Sprout thing... well, that's just embarrassing. I'd completely forgotten about poor Neville! How mortifying ... especially for someone who prides herself on knowing everything HP :/! I suppose I'll work him in as an assistant teacher if the class comes up again. Thanks for pointing that out!
Thanks again for reviewing - you have no idea how much I appreciate it! I really, REALLY hope the upcoming chapters meet your expectations!
