Hi, Beth!

So first of all, yes, the next chapter does make more sense after reading this one.

After the pseudo-cliffhanger you dropped on us at the end of the last chapter, I was expecting this one to be a bit more dramatic. Instead, we see Rose just being Rose. Well, being Rose and also sharing some insight into her childhood and relationship with her favorite uncle.

That was definitely the highlight of the chapter for me. I love the idea of Rose and Harry being very close. I played with it a lot when I was writing Conspiracy of Blood, and the two of them are definitely one of my favorite non-romantic pairings to write in the fandom. The image of Harry being sort of mesmerized by this little red-headed toddler was absolutely adorable, and I like to imagine that they kept it up for many years to come.

I love the way she scolds Albus and inflicts some healing on him. Not all that gently, either. She obviously has his best interests at heart, but she's not shy about exacting a little price for his foolish behavior.

Yay, you pulled her and Scorpius a baby step closer to one another. Even Harry is getting in a bit of match-making. Good on you, Uncle Harry!

This was a fun little interlude. Now that I've read it, I'm looking forward to getting back into the meat of the story. Good job!

Author's Response: Hi Dan!

Thank you for being patient and waiting for this chapter to get posted. I know that not much happened here in terms of the plot, but I needed it to establish a few key points. The first being Harry and Rose's relationship. My version of Ron is like a slightly older, larger Ron from the books. He has no clue about girls and having a daughter would downright terrify him. Harry, on the other hand, would cherish the next gen kids, never having had a family growing up.

I also wanted to establish that Lily is four years younger than Rose (instead of two years, as implied by canon). That comes up later in the story.

The last little part that needed to be established is that Rose heals the two duelers. This is the start of something bigger for her and needed to be set up early in the story. She loves to be healer, but thinks Albus is a dimwit for the way he got his wounds. I know you were already able to read/review the next chapter - so, yeah - you will definitely get to the meat of the story next!

Thanks, Dan!
