“I thought you wore pink ironically!”
I love this chapter! Please update soon.Author's Response: lol. Only Rose!
Thank you very much! I'm trying to get the next chapter ready asap :) Report Review
Omg, that Ambrosia is one crazy psycho. I kind of feel sorry for kid shaw. I really hope Rose puts a stop to her soon. Rose and her dad Ron are like two peas in a pod and with the combined efforts of two thirds of the golden trio, Ambrosia doesn't stand a chance.Author's Response: They definitely are two peas in a pod! Kid Shaw is not a good person, but I feel a bit sorry for him too. I don't want to give away plot points so keep reading! The next chapter will be posted soon, hopefully today. :) Report Review
Can't wait for the next chapter :DAuthor's Response: Thank you! It'll be up soon. Report Review
I didn't tell you before, but I lolve the name "Rabbit's Tutu": really, what a good name. I was laughing hard when I read it.
Love how Ron and Hermione are learning what Rose's job exactly involve. The moments with her parents are very well written.Author's Response: lol! I'm glad you liked that name, I thought it was funny XD Thank you so much for the review! Writing Rose's parents working with her is a lot of fun, I'm so glad you enjoyed it! Report Review
Omg, they are so lucky they weren't on the fifth floor. Ambrosia is truly psycho and it's pretty obvious she has no conscience. Rose, Scorpius, her parents and baby Ramses could have all been killed. She needs to be caught and put away. She has no boundaries at all. She kills freely, kidnaps children, and doesn't care about killing innocent babies/people. Man, I really hope that girl gets what's coming to her. She's made a lot of enemies.Author's Response: It was really a stroke of luck none of them were in the room when the bomb went off. Ambrosia is a sociopath for sure. She does not care who she kills, including children and innocent bystanders. Thank you for reviewing! Report Review
Is it bad that I have a small crush on "the rock"? If he winked at me, I think I would faint. I guess I'm just a sucker for bad guys.Author's Response: Actually I find it very flattering! I greatly enjoy it when a reader really likes one of my original characters. I have a bit of a weakness for the Rock myself. :) Thanks for reviewing! Report Review
Ron and baby Ramses are so much alike. They are just so cute. I love reading all the family scenes especially when they are taking care of little Ramses. He's seems so adorable.Author's Response: Yeah Ramses is definitely a Weasley! And he does love his granddad. Thanks for the review! :) Report Review
I love the fact that Ron and Rose are teaming up together to work on a case. I can't wait to see how they work along side one another.Author's Response: It's been so much fun writing Ron and Rose working together. I'm glad I got to bring him out to New York with her. Thank you for the review! Report Review
LOL, those mle's better watch out if they know what good for them. They arrested hermione weasley's daughter and they are in for it now.Author's Response: lol! Yep, they need to watch out, cause Hermione's on the case now. And of course she brought Ron with her. Thank you for reviewing! Report Review
Omg, ambrosia saw her! In addition to that, Rose is now getting arrested. Talk about bad luck.Author's Response: Rose has terrible luck sometimes, doesn't she? Of course, she gets herself into these situations... Thanks for the review! Report Review
I'm glad they got the little girl out safe. Poor girl, she might have been petrified.Author's Response: Poor little Gee. She's just a kid. Fortunately Rose got her back. Thanks for reviewing! Report Review
If I was rose, I would be worried about my child too, she might just be getting in a bit too deep.Author's Response: Getting in too deep happens a lot with Rose, but this time she's got a baby so yeah, that's a big worry. Thanks for reviewing! Report Review
The judge's wife seems honest and trustworthy. The husband and son might be hiding something though.Author's Response: The Ellerys are an interesting family for sure. ;) Thanks for the review! Report Review

I love little ramses. He's so adorable!Author's Response: Thanks! I'm pretty fond of the little guy myself ;) Report Review
I'm so sorry, I've been super busy with work as of late and I haven't had a chance to read this yet. I love the midnight series and I promise to review every chapter that I read. I'm super excited to read this. I can't wait to see what kind of trouble rose gets herself into this time around.Author's Response: Totally understandable :) I appreciate you coming by and reviewing the story! I hope you enjoy the third novel with Rose :) Report Review
Rose's reflections on her dad are priceless. One minute she's thinking how much safer she feels with him around, and the next she's questioning his sanity. That's so Ron. He isn't the first person you'd think of calling in a crisis, but he always manages to come through in the end. And him goochy goo-ing Ramses while talking about being barely avoiding being murdered is the best mental image of the chapter.
Sometimes I don't know whether to feel sorry for Scorpius or not. Sometimes I think he must feel a little down on himself that he can't be more helpful in these situations, but he also seems content to just go along for the ride, knowing what his strengths are and not fretting about weaknesses, which, of course, only makes me like him all the more. And knowing that Rose knows he'd go down fighting for the baby makes me want to give a big old aw!
Yay for more Mimi! She's a hoot. "She's probably got better mothering instincts than I do." Oh, the irony! You've just got to love a good drag queen.
It seems to me like we are heading for a showdown. I can't wait!Author's Response: Hahaha... oh Rose, she does love her dad but also thinks he's nuts. She's a lot like him. Ron goes from "my wife is awesome" to "my wife is insane" in the flip of a switch. Clearly it's genetic. And Ron and his grandson XD Yeah I had fun with that.
Scorpius knows he's not a fighter, and that someone has to take care of the baby. He wouldn't be at the final showdown either way, if they hadn't had Ramses or not, because it's just not him. I think keeping Ramses safe is a big enough job that he'd feel like he's helpful enough, even though he doesn't fight. I kind of feel sorry for him for ever getting involved with Rose ;)
I had to bring Mimi back. She's just way too good a character to let her go in one chapter! haha. I do love drag queens. Drag brunch is the greatest thing ever.
Showdown coming soon! Thank you for reviewing :) Report Review
OMG...this was the best chapter! Full of Ron and Hermione goodness! And the return of Mimi -- who is a bloke, you know ;-).
I liked the beginning with them in the Muggle hotel. I enjoy seeing Rose-the-mom, for a change.
Here are some favorite lines:
I only assaulted him a little bit. They set me up. It wasn't my fault.”“I see why you and Rose got to be such fast friends,” said Dad.
She's helped me out of a few tough spots.” This was actually true, although it made it sound like the tough spots had been over the course of years rather than packed into about a three-day span. Semantics.
And everything to do with Ron and Hermione!
Hope Scorpius/Ramses and Mimi are safe.Author's Response: The "you know she's a bloke, right" cracked me up to write. Rose had no idea. XD
Rose is nervous for her baby, and even under normal circumstances, when she comes home from work she does look in on him.
Mimi meeting Ron and Hermione was far too much fun to write. I was picturing Ron's face the whole time, and Hermione stuttering through speaking to Mimi. hahaha... Oh my.
I'm glad you liked the Ron/Hermione in this chapter! I love writing them. Thank you so much for reviewing! Report Review
Great chapter. I wonder if Scorpius ever feels emasculated, or whether he likes the way their relationship works.
Mimi rocks :)Author's Response: Oh you made me laugh! I'm sure at times he does, but mostly I think he feels long-suffering around Rose. He seems pretty chill with fulfilling the traditionally feminine role, and to be honest, equating the feminine role with negativity is pretty much the essence of why we still need feminism. Maybe Scorp is a feminist ;)
Mimi is a lot of fun. Thank you so much for reviewing! I'm really glad you liked the chapter :) Report Review
Need more, I'm hooked!Author's Response: Thank you! Next chapter goes up tomorrow :) Report Review
I loved this chapter. Rose rocks! The line about her strenghs make me laugh a lot. The end was hard though.I imagine Hermion will pass in warrior mode now. I wonder if the the family will be more involved now that Ambrosia is more a threat than ever.It's always hilarious to see the Weasleys in your fics. Waiting for the next one.Author's Response: Lying is one of her strengths! haha. It's good that she has some at all, really. Aside from Apparition. Hermione will totally be galvanized by a bomb right next to her daughter and grandchild. I do love writing the Weasleys. Thank you for reviewing! I'll be posting the next chapter tomorrow. :) Report Review
Holy cow. SO good. Rose gets to show off her skills for her dad, and you make it so tense and intriguing. Such a well done scene with Wyn Ellery. You depict a man on the edge, with no way out, so very clearly. I also really liked the scene in the art gallery. Seeing Scorpius be successful, but not have the support of his parents, was bittersweet. I loved Ron and Hermione's support. Especially, Ron's. Knowing this is Draco's son, he had to feel at odds for complimenting him on anything, but he mans up and does the guy thing. Fantastic. Great chapter!~GWAuthor's Response: Yay thank you! I'm glad you liked it. I always feel like my chapter isn't complete until I get a Georgia Weasley review ;) Wyn Ellery is definitely bottomed out here, and Rose is good at getting to people. In my head canon, she gets that from Ron. And Ron in this chapter was a lot of fun to write, especially his gruff and slightly grudging congratulating of Scorpius lol. He still doesn't like the fact his daughter's with a Malfoy, but he's had to resign himself to it at this point. And feeling sorry for Malfoy's kid is some mixed emotions for him. Anyway thank you very much for reviewing! Report Review
Dun, dun, duuun!
Sorry, I couldn't resist. You know things are getting good when bombs start exploding. Another excellent chapter, as always. It was nice to see a little more of Scorpius in this chapter, and to see that his showcase is going well. The interview part was excellent too. You covered a lot but it moved so smoothly. Rose was kind of on a roll in there.
And of course, yea for more hero Ron! I loved how he took charge as soon as the explosion happened without a second thought, and how insightful he was after the interview. I think the two of them should open up the Weasley Detective Agency or something. Oh, and I totally laughed at the cosplay reference -- though in the middle of NYC, I doubt most people would even give them a second look :PAuthor's Response: Hehehe. Yep, it's definitely a dun dun DUN moment there. I love a cliffhanger. Well, I love writing them, I hate when tv shows do them ;) Bombs never go amiss in a mystery story, I feel. And yeah, time to revisit Scorpius's plotline, poor guy, Rose forgets all about him when she's focused on a case.
Ron is good at his job, which is lucky for Rose since this isn't exactly like skip-tracing, more like investigation. And I think he and Hermione would be all over clearing the guests out of the hotel after the bomb. Take-charge sort of couple there. I think most New Yorkers would ignore them, yeah. lol. But not the tourists, and New York is always full of tourists. Thank you for reviewing! Report Review
Yay for Rose handling the interview with Wyn so well! Glad she has Ron with her, I'd worry about her handling this alone. ;-) Also you really developed Wyn the character well here. I could see the sleazy politician, the scared collaborator, etc.
Some favorite lines:
“You don't mind me lying to him?” “Might as well play to your strengths,” my father said. “Do you have a plan of attack for this?” “I don't really plan things.” Dad smiled a bit. “Somehow that doesn't surprise me.
Love how well Ron knows Rose! And that he's still proud of her! ;-)Author's Response: It's very lucky her dad's along, since Rose totally solo has a hard time getting herself together. Not even Victoire to help her think things through! And this case isn't like her usual, so Ron is very useful since it's more of what he does.
Yep he knows his little girl very well! haha. Thank you so much for the review! Report Review
