I love your writing style.Author's Response: Thank you! :) Report Review
Loved it. Especially because its such a different portrayal of Scorpius and Rose than is usually seen. I love that he likes showtunes and she is a wild child. Very new and fun. 10/10Author's Response: Thank you! I tried to make them a bit different than the usual go-round. This is the way I portray them (as 20-somethings) in the Midnight Run stories. Poor Scorpius, he puts up with a lot of craziness from Rose, but it's cause he loves her. :) Thank you for the review! Report Review
Wow! That was lovely. I really enjoyed it.Author's Response: Thank you very much! Report Review
That was really good! I love your writing! When is your next story coming?Author's Response: Thank you very much, I'm glad you liked it! The next one will probably be posted next week. I'm still finishing off the first chapter. :) Report Review
Ah, a school age Scorpius and Rose! That's so sweet. I absolutely adore that you wrote another one-shot from his perspective. Your Scorpius seems like a lot of fun.
He's introspective sure, but there's something exotic about a painter. I don't know. Those artistic types sure draw me in.
I absolutely love your characterization of the pair of them as teenagers. They aren't so different from whom they are when they grow up, and yet there are differences. I think that's absolutely beautiful. Because it gives your pieces a touch of realism.
No one stays absolutely the same person from the age of fifteen until adulthood. They may never think they've changed or they may not have a dramatic change, but they change none-the-less.
This is absolutely lovely!
And, I adore that they have one of those 'high-school' sweetheart kind of relationships. Because some people seem to think they don't last. Sometimes they don't, but sometimes they really do.
Great job, as always!
LindersAuthor's Response: I've been thinking about them as teenagers for a while now, so I figured I'd finally write it up. I'm really starting to enjoy writing Scorpius's POV, for the different perspective he has from what Rose sees and thinks.
For me it's the singing ;) There's something about a man who can sing. *sigh* Ah Broadway voices...
I agree that people rarely stay quite the same. The experiences you have in life change you, sometimes little by little so you don't even notice it. It's a rare (and frankly, imo, emotionally stunted) person who is exactly the same at age 15 as they are at age 35. Of course, for Rose and Scorpius, they're in their mid-20s so this is only about 10-11 years ago for them, but still. They've grown up a bit, and seen some changes in their lives, so. Anyway.
I'm actually not a huge believer in high-school sweetheart sort of stuff, but it does happen. Funny cause the two main couples I write about (Molly/Arthur and Rose/Scorpius) are high school sweetheart sort of couples. Hmm.
I'm really glad you enjoyed this story :) Thank you so much for the wonderful review! Report Review
that was really lovely. it was sweet and tempered and very real. the pacing was perfect -often when people write these past-moments type stories something gets lost, but not with this. it was a pleasure to read and i really enjoyed your characterisation.

This was so sweet! The way you portrayed Scorpius was amazing, usually he acts all like, hey I'm untouchable you can't have me- oh wait Rose can! This was completely different because it was a softer approach and it was lovely! The description at the beginning was great because you immediately picked up who she resembled (overlarge teeth-Hermione lol.). Then the ending, I love the final sentence because it was a great finishing touch because it tied everything up but not in an overly dramatic way. If that makes sense, I doubt it does- I hardly ever make sense at all! All in all I loved this story and I'm so glad I reviewed!
-LpF123 xAuthor's Response: The way I write Scorpius is very laid-back and not really a ladies' man at all (as Draco was definitely not in the books, though he's portrayed that way in fanfics a lot). So I don't think of him as untouchable by any means. He's just an artistic sort of guy who's a bit long-suffering with crazy Rose, lol. Thank you so much for the review! It made perfect sense to me :) Report Review
This is absolutely gorgeous, hon. The depiction of Scorpius is so delightfully original, and I love the way you've created him. Not really the brooding, angsty teen living in Draco and Lucius' shadow, and not the mini-me of his jerk dad. He is his own person, and that Rose helped him find himself is perfection. The fact that "what he was really meant to do in life was prevent Rose Weasley from causing wholesale destruction to herself and everyone around her" made me giggle. It sets up both JAMR and WSM perfectly. Things DO happen around Rose, and she honestly has no idea how it begins. Your characters are always so real and believable. I long to create mine in a way that makes them seem to breathe from the page the way yours do. Incredible, sweet little one shot. Well done!~GWAuthor's Response: Scorpius is so not angsty or brooding haha. He's a Hufflepuff, and a nice guy. Anyone who could put up with Rose for ten years while she lies to him left and right has got to be a really decent kind of guy. Things really do happen around her, but she doesn't really know what's going on half the time. :p
I love characters - they're my favorite part of writing. Sometimes I think I invent plots just to have a reason to poke at the characters. heh. Thank you so much for the review! I love your reviews, they always make me so happy. :) Report Review
That was really good! I like hearing it from Scorpius' point of view, he sees things really differently than Rose! I hope there is more of this type of thing soon! I would love to hear about their lives at hogwarts! Happy mothers day!Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad you liked it. I haven't got any plans for more school-era one-shots on these two, but I do have more plans for Scorpius's point of view. Thanks for reviewing, and happy Mother's Day! Report Review
Nice one shot, but there is SO much more story here! I love your Rose and Scorpius! And even if Scorpius does get moderately famous and make a good living for them will Rose stop trying to catch bad guys? Of course not! What else does a Rose with babies and toddlers do but leave the children with Scorpius and get Victoria and try to catch the bad guys because it's FUN. And what does a mother of twins stuck in a slightly less dangerous and exciting life do but write about a crazy life she could never live but loves writing about. Brilliant, but a little twisted.Author's Response: There is quite a bit about their school days, but that fell outside the scope of a one-shot! I might write more about them at school one of these days.
Rose really likes her job, even though she sometimes complains about it. And I think Victoire is a good role model for her sometimes ;)
I actually never think of myself as stuck in my life. I like my life - I get to do a lot that I love. I certainly wouldn't want to live Rose's life. It's just fun to write about her. I suppose I am a bit twisted, probably anyone around the forums will tell you that haha.

Hi! BrightStar here with your review.
This was a pleasure to read, I think this fic is what Scorpius/Rose should be more like.
Coherence: You had no problems here, spelling and grammar all fine, it flowed very well.
Charaterisation: This was a lovely piece precisely because of this. Rose was so lovely, with her pink tshirt, probably pretty in an ordinary sense, bit nothing more. But the beauty that came upon her, as the artist Scorpius saw it, could really be seen when reading this. I liked Rose as being kind of reserved from afar, but outgoing with friends. Scorpius was very interesting, and very believable. The way he changed with Rose was very lovely.
Context: Excellent, this is often forgotten but is so important in next gen. Scorpius as a reaction against Draco, the reputation... excellent!
Credibility: My only problem here is the theatre music, though it lends something to the character, I wondered how he would have access to it. Other than that though, very believable. Sixteen year olds are so often portrayed as adults, though obviously this is not the case, no matter how mature they are (not in a patronising way!). Their interation was perfect, their innocence so cute!
A fantastic job, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it :)Author's Response: Ah, the theater music... It started out as almost a throwaway joke in the first Midnight Run novel, just to show Scorpius singing when happy and that he stops singing around the house when he's stressed and unhappy. And then it became like a thing, so... Okay, here's my official retconning for that: Scorpius learned about showtunes while a second year at Hogwarts, from one of his fellow Hufflepuffs, a Muggle-born girl who loves Broadway.
I tried not to make them too grown-up. I normally write them in their mid-late 20s, so I wanted them to seem sixteen-ish here. And Scorpius is a gentle kind of guy, he doesn't want to be associated with his dad - a reaction against Draco is a great way to put it.
Rose's pink t-shirts are also a running gag in the Midnight Run 'verse. She likes baby hippogriffs and unicorns and all thinks sparkly and cute on her shirts. And I do think Rose is pretty in an ordinary kind of way, but not to Scorpius, who sees her as completely beautiful.
I'm glad this was able to stand on its own, since it uses characters as a I write them in a larger series. I tried to make it able to be a single piece as well, not just for the Midnight Run readers.
Thank you so much for the review, I really enjoyed reading it and I very much appreciate hearing your thoughts on the story! Report Review
You know when you just find an absolute gem of a story in the recently added section? This is one of those absolute gems, made me go all gooey inside :P I love the background information to their relationship that you put in these little Scorpius-POV one shots. I don't normally thank people for writing, but thank you for writing and posting this, it's put a smile on my face :)Author's Response: Awww! Thank you! Wow, what a great review, I'm still smiling about it :) Thank you so much for such a lovely review, I'm so glad you enjoyed the story. I'm getting to really like seeing things from Scorpius's POV, I have to admit. He sees things very differently from Rose. Report Review
This was really good! Rose and Scorpius are amazing together, aren't they? :)Author's Response: I like to think they are :) Thank you very much! Report Review
I don't normally read one shots. just because I like something a bit longer to get my teeth into, but I'm glad I read this. It's lovely. Well done :)Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm really glad you took a chance on it then. I like a longer story myself, and a prolific author ;) Report Review
"Well, you're definitely not gay."
That caused me to laugh loud enough that the dog was frightened. It's nice to see how Scorpius and Rose got together, and it somehow surprises me that Scorpius made the first move. He and Rose balance each other out nicely, as we've seen in the other stories, but you've done a nice job giving us the beginnings of their relationship.
Please tell us there's more of Rose and Scorpius in the future. I love your Rose, she's such a trip.Author's Response: Well, Rose is so oblivious, she would've needed Victoire to point out that Scorpius wasn't actually gay and seemed to like her ;) Of course, Victoire is long out of Hogwarts by this point.
There is definitely more Rose and Scorpius coming. They each have some cameos in the Roxanne story, which I am still working on, but there'll be another story just them coming next.
Thank you so much for reviewing! I'm glad you liked this one :) Report Review
