I wish Rose was more happy about it, still. Go Scorpius though. Good for him. I love the way you put that whole line, though. OMG. TEDDY'S REACTION IS LITERALLY SO PERFECT. This whole story is so perfect. How have I not ready anything of yours before? How do you not have a million thousand and one reviews on everything? Hahaha. Oh my gosh, I love Teddy. "who had once declared his intentions of having enough children to field his own Quidditch team." Rethinking that decision there, Ted?
I literally love that about babies. I can play with them, hug them, hold them, enjoy them, and then at the end of the day give them back to their parents and enjoy my quiet kid-free home. I love that Rose thinks the same way, and that you clearly have thought it to, as you wrote it. Awe, poor Rose. I would hate feeling inadequate like that. I would hate feeling like my partner would be better than me. Apparently Rose doesn't mind.
Oh Teddy, making it a contest. This is all priceless. Oh boy, they're telling the parents. Do I need to brace myself for that? Oh, I'm so happy her parents are happy. That was such a lovely reaciton. So sweet. I might tear up a bit. Stop writing lovely stories, it's not fair to the rest of us!! Another perfect ending to a perfect chapter.

Author's Response: Being pregnant wasn't in her plan, and it's scary and frankly uncomfortable, so I can't entirely blame her for not being super happy about it. She'll like being a mum, though, don't worry.
Oh, Teddy still wants his own Quidditch team, never fear. He likes having a dozen kids around him, especially when he can parent by saying sternly, "Listen to your mother" and then reading the newspaper. lol
I totally love that about babies too. It's why I haven't had any more and was happy when my brother's wife had one - I was like yay more babies that I don't have to wake up all night with! More fun that way.
Rose is fully accustomed to Scorpius being the responsible one who takes care of everything. She makes the money, and otherwise she's pretty much useless around the house. So to her, of course Scorpius will keep the baby alive. It's what he does. haha
Nah, Ron's not mad. I never cared for the interpretation where he throws her out or screams or anything. For one, I don't see Ron that way, and for another, it's not like it's news, as he says. They've been together for years. Thank you for reviewing!
