Hi there! :) Ahh it's been too long since I've left a review on this story! :(

The beginning is so chilling, how Rose digs up her parents... but by this point there isn't much that can disturb her except not knowing the truth, I suppose. You wrote that part so suspensefully (as always) and I was really nervous for what she might find. Interesting that Harry's wand was in his casket (also I'm clearly not awake yet as I thought there was actually a sprig of holly in his grave for most of the chapter. Ooops :P). I have no clue what could be going on and whether their parents are alive or not, but am really excited to find out.

I really love the flashbacks to her life with her parents. It's a little bittersweet, to see how happy and ordinary they were before they died, and how comfortable the world felt in comparison to the rest of the narrative. I love how you wrote Ron and Hermione as parents as well, how Hermione really wants Rose to be intelligent and motivated the way she was, and how good of a Dad Ron is. It's interesting too how she didn't like being around Albus, and how the other cousins pick on him as well.

If all goes well. Hermione rested her head on her husband’s shoulder. “They won’t be anything like us,” She murmured, “They may grow to hate us someday. Can you live with that?” Hmm, this was interesting. Do Ron and Hermione perhaps know more about the future than they're letting on? This conversation reminded me a little of Harry's ominous teachings with Albus. I could be grasping onto nothing here, but I'm very curious to find out!

“England’s the hub of the magical world. What happens here will inevitably spread to Bulgaria. I thought this was very clever and fit well with my head canon about the magical world. Kovy seems interesting as well, I'm excited to get to know him a little better. :)

She was familiar to him but also impersonal. He knew her but he didn’t really know her at all until now. I really like the Rose/Scorpius development and how he sees her. I feel like he does really want to know the real her and that it's more meaningful than a fascination of infatuation for the both of them. It's funny to think of how they might have gotten together in an alternate world.

I feel like this review is very scrambled - well, there was a LOT happening in this chapter :P - but one more little detail I want to mention is how Albus referred to Victoire (his cousin!) as Teddy's "veela girlfriend." It really shows what a cold person he is and how only people who are useful to him really count as people. The last scene was wonderful as well, though I feel sorry for the poor penguins! :(

A wonderful chapter, as usual. Your story always leaves me with more questions than answers, and I love it. Hopefully I'll be back for the next chapter soon! :D

Author's Response: Oh yes, the flashback chapter!

Glad you enjoyed the bits of her personality (and Ron and Hermione).

I see Rose and Albus as having grown up with each other - Albus being a very difficult, cruel, derisive little kid -so lots of fights, of course. Even so there's an unshakeable sense of familiarity from a lifetime spent together, and I think that's what really binds Rose to Albus - despite what a cold callous person he can be.

As usual, you leave an awesome review!
