Hi Rose! :)

Aha! I called it. I don't think Brandon is dead, per say, because not only would that make me sad but I feel like his and Albus' story isn't over. I do think that whatever has happened to him is very serious, however, and will make Al re-evaluate his relationships. I thought his running off to Scorpius in order to make himself feel better about being "stood up" sort of showed that he isn't quite mature enough to be in a solid, adult relationship, but time will tell. But I do really hope Brandon is ultimately okay! ♥ I feel like there's still a lot more to know about him and that Albus can learn from him. *crosses fingers*

Rose was so funny with the hiding in Lily's closet and all of that. :P Even though I feel bad that her family is concerned, the fact that she's actually staking out at Harry's is pretty ironic. I was actually (weirdly) thinking the other day that my parents' house is big enough with enough hiding places that there could be someone hiding out there and just using the toilet and sneaking food when nobody was home so it's quite funny that you showed how that might work here, though I suppose Rose has magic to help and the imaginary stowaway at my parents' doesn't. :P

Ahem, tangent. The banter between the girls was a lot of fun and I love how close and mischievous they are especially when talking about boys. Showing how Scorpius being gay is a bit of a shock for Rose through her recoiling from Lily's joke was a great detail as well. But such a good point - I'm used to the name Scorpius because of fan fics but I feel like if I knew someone with that name I'd just laugh every time I said it.

The way you wrote the romantic, sneaky love weekend between the guys was great as well and really captured the sense of how private and intimate their affection for one another is. This time it seems like Albus is the one pulling the strings and making the decisions, not Scorpius, which is interesting as opposed to in PI where it seemed like the power to decide - and the pressure - rested on Scorpius. I'm quite excited to see what will happen next though I imagine in the wake of this bad news Scorpius might take a back seat in Al's priorities.

Can't wait for the next chapter, Rose - great job! :D

Author's Response: You were the only person (who doesn't have a list of spoilers from me) who called it. Yes, I did soemthing to Brandon. I can't verify what it is at this point as i don't think you'd want spoilers for the next few chapters. Al is definitely showing his need for more growth in this chapter. he ran off like a wounded puppy.

I'm glad you like Rose's little hide out. Her family is quite concerned though they did hear from Hannah that she was at the Leaky Cauldron and Ginny suspects she's at their place now. So, they're not completely frazzled. The idea of an unknown person hiding out in a house is a bit creepy. I've seen stories of that in the news and it makes me shudder to think about.

Writing Rose and Lily and friends was quite a bit of fun. I mean, they were both Gryffindors and likely spent a good deal of time together at school. Rose is still in a bit of shock over scorpius being gay (because she had assumed he was bi). there are a lot of HP names that would be utterly bizzare in RL. I had to poke fun.

There was something furtive about their weekend together. Neither wants to fess up about it to anyone else either. Though, now i just have the song secret lovers stuck in my head. :P You're right about the power dynamic changing quite a bit between them.

The next chapter should be full of surpries for you! I'm trying to finish this for JulNo so there will be a lot of updates happening.

Thanks for a wonderful review!!
