Okay, I have to confess something: I cheated! I originally read this chapter on FF. net since it was updated there sooner. I should have commented there but I prefer leaving comments here since it's where I discovered this great fiction.
Anyway, this review is not as objective and "fresh" as my others since I first read this chapter last week and already know what is going to happen next.
If I recall well my first reaction after reading this instalment, I think I was both shocked and pleased. It was indeed a pleasant surprise to see how Rose reacted to THE kiss (this is how I'm going to call it now).
I also liked how detailed your description was: I could really feel how she felt and how much this kiss was different from the others they shared.
As well, I was glad she didn't try to find excuses to her reaction. As oblivious as she may be, it was interesting witnessing her realization, i.e. how Scorpius has "wormed himself inside her barriers".

I shouldn't comment only on THE kiss but right now, this is what marked me the most. And what a cliff-hanger at the end! If you hadn't updated soon after on FF. net, I would have been so frustrated. I'm thankful you don't go too hard on us... lately lol (I still remember the major cliffie about "Malfoy" being Faye's baby's father!)

[after reading the chapter again:] oh! I enjoyed Rose's interactions with other students and her meeting with Dominique and Pollux was fun to read too. Since I'm already too ahead with these 3, I can't really give 1st-reading impressions here. Therefore, I'm really looking forward for chapters 15 & 16 to be updated here. I have loads to say about them.

This is a little off-topic but I'm so glad you didn't abandon this story. I was scared you would since there was no update for a few months. Now, I can sleep well in my fanfiction land.

Oh! To finish: your lists make sense. It also explains why your characters have so much depth. They are not "just there" or caricatures. This is another thing that I like in your story. I want to know more about each and every character. True, I also want to see where Scorpius and Rose are heading but the story is so much more than just those two.

See you very soon when chapter 15 is on (soon hopefully otherwise, I may have to move on to FF. net and comment there).

Author's Response: Hello red8silver!

Haha, that's okay, I'm normally too impatient to wait until HPFF validates my chapters before posting them on other sites. Here is probably one of the best places to leave reviews because I respond to all of them anyway.

'The Kiss' is what I've nicknamed it too. And if you've read on, you'll know that what Rose calls it as well. The kiss was kinda tricky to write because I wanted her to feel it but not to label it in terms of emotions because she tends to think logically rather than emotionally. So I'm glad you liked it and it came across as feeling different. That was certainly the intention!

Rose is definitely starting to realise Scorpius means more to her than she's let herself believe he did. And there's only so many excuses she can come up with before it becomes ridiculous.

I'm addicted to cliff-hangers, I'm so sorry. I think most of my chapters end in cliff-hangers of some sort. That one was certainly one of the worst though. Sorry about that.

Rose is interacting more with other people which is also a change in her so I'm glad you approve! I love Dominique and Pollux and that whole storyline and there's definitely more in store for them. Looking forward to your thoughts on those chapters too!

I haven't abandoned this - it's the one fanfic that I am completely determined to finish. So yes, you may sleep well in your fan fiction land!

This story is much more than just a ScoRose fic, although that is the main focus. It's a story about a lot of characters, just told through Rose's perspective. So thank you so much for that!

There's plenty more on here for you to read but if you do move to FF, please let me know your username and I'll see if I can respond to your reviews there! Thank you for another lovely review thought!
