It's really too bad Scorpius has a girlfriend at home :( he and Rose have bad some really sweet moments, and while that fact doesn't ruin them, it does sort of taint them, you know? Because they were intimate moments where they were telling each other their secrets and now we know he wasn't as honest and open as we thought he was. Also, I don't think there's any excuse for him cheating on his girlfriend. It would've been lame to break up with her in a letter, but he could have done it. Or just not kissed Rose.
I'm really hoping his letter is just about their relationship and Danielle, and not about his mom. I really want his mongo end up okay in the end. Either recovering or stable or something. Not dead. That may be a vain hope, as I'm sure you e ready decided what you want to do on that front, but I don't want her to die for several reasons. (One of them being that I'm simply not all that fond of reading about death. Since it's in like 90% of the books I've read. It's a major theme, and can be very interesting, but I don't really care for it.)
Despite the Danielle bit, Scorpius's journal was pretty sweet. I liked what was written about Rose in it. I'm so not very surprised that he keeps a journal, since he seems like a very sensitive guy.
I'm also a bit disappointed Rose didn't meet Mrs. Malfoy because I want to learn more about her character. Hopefully we'll see her later on?
And Ron is fast becoming my favorite character. He's just awesome. Update soon! Report Review
I love that Rose slapped Scorpius! It was great! I also really like that we are getting to see Ron, Hermione, and Hugo more. I can't wait to see what happens next! Report Review
You are such a good writer! Please update soon! I cant wait any longer! This is by far, the best fan-fiction I've ever read!! Keep up the good work! Report Review
I know you're writing as fast as you can but please UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE! I swear sometimes I check this site just to see if this story has been updated. I love it! Report Review
I'm absolutely in love with this story... I usually don't read Rose and Scorpius fics for some odd reason, but you just have me HOOKED!
I love Rose and her artsyness, and I also love Scorpius and his... Scorpiusness... Look at all these words I'm making up :P
It's okay for me to hate Danielle right? Even though she's pretty oblivious about Rose, I just feel so bad for her... But I guess it really is Scorpius's fault, as much as I so love him :(
ROSE JUST HAS TO FORGIVE SCORPIUS! SHE JUST HAS TO! THEY'RE JUST PERFECT! minus the lying bit...
Overall... I love your story :)

Just said I’d drop you a line to tell you just how much I adore this story! Scorpius and Rose just seem to fit perfectly together (despite the fact that Scorpo has a girlfriend, bad Scorpius, bad)
You’ve just created such realistic characters, and I actually feel like they are real people at times! So thank you very much for this, it makes my day whenever you update!
I think I’ll get into the swing of regular reviewing, but even if you never hear from me again, just know that I am reading, and enjoying every minute of it! Author's Response: Why hello there!
I'm so glad you're enjoying it so far! And I really appreciate you pausing to leave a review. It means a lot to me that people are supportive and enjoying the stories.
I hope to hear from you again--but if I don't, thank you again! You're wonderful :) Report Review
First of all I love Rose/Scorpius! It's one of my favourite things in the world. I just read Delicate and Still Delicate by padfoot4ever and I was having a hard time finding a new rosius fic to read. Then I found this fic and I was hooked straight from the beginning. This is so good! I hope to see a new chapter soon, please! I send you all the love from Finland. Yeah I'm Finnish so please excuse me if there is mistakes in my writing. Okay I'll stop now, bye!Author's Response: I'm really glad you decided to jump on board! I think the Rose/Scorpius ship is really hard to get right because a lot of people just assume people will react a certain way without properly thinking it through. So I'm so happy you like my interpretation!
No worries on any mistakes. I've always wanted to visit Finland, actually. The photos are stunning!
Thanks for the review and I hope you enjoy the rest! Report Review
Ok I understand that Rose is pissed at Scorpius for lying, and I don't blame her, but damn. I think she should hear him out! Poor guy :( she's bound to let him explain soon though... Right?! I hope so.
Keep up the amazing work! I lovelovelove this fanfic!Author's Response: Hmm. I see where you're coming from, but I think I'd be pretty much where Rose is right now. She doesn't know how he feels about her. He's been completely dishonest without ever saying things to her... and he's been kissing her while he's seeing another girl. I think Rose can also sympathize with this other girl who has no idea she exists. Now she can wonder, what else is he lying about?
So I do get that it's so easy looking in on a couple and knowing they should be together and wanting it to work out, but if I was in Rose's shoes he would have been punched. Multiple times.
Thanks for the review :) So glad you're liking the fic! Report Review
Hi! I've made a short list of a few of my favourite lines from this chapter here for you:
1) "he scared the Gryffindor out of me"
- The perfect expression to express fear, in my opinion :P
2) Dad shrugged. "Just saying. You might get cold. Or a sunburn. Jackets are nice."
- Ah yes, overprotective Ron at his best...this line made me smile :)
And last but not least:
3) "But how was I going to tell Danielle I'd been kissing another girl?"
- Definitely the ULTIMATE cliffhanger, a heart-stopping slap in the face if ever there was one. And it seems as though Rose has read my mind - who is Danielle???
Overall an awesome chapter as usual, can't wait to read the next :DAuthor's Response: Oh favorite lines those are my favorite!!
1. LOVE that line. I laughed really hard while writing it.
2. I love Ron trying really hard not to make it SEEM like he's being protective.
3. Oh yes. I'm a sucker for a good cliffie and i'm afraid I torment all of you because of it. But you'll find out very soon!!
Thank you so much! I hope you enjoy the rest :) Report Review
Dicaprio love! CI aside, this was a great chapter! I feel so sorry for Rose, and strangely Scorpius. Rose should let him explain, but I hate Danielle already and I can imagine how Rose feels! :P
10/10!Author's Response: Seriously. He's gorgeous. I can't even.
Though Rose should let him explain, I have a hard time thinking she would this soon. Putting myself in her shoes, anyway. I'd be far worse off than she is. I would have punched him.
Thanks! Report Review
Fantastic job! Please please continue!!Author's Response: You bet :)

Aah! Scorpius why??? There has to be an explanation, I have faith in him! Please update soon, I love this story so much!Author's Response: There is always an explination. Let's just hope it's the one Rose wants to hear. thank you! Report Review

I HAVE FOUR CHAPTER OF THIS TO CATCH UP ON? LAWDY.
Now I’m listening to the Cinderella Broadway cast recording so this might be a little sappier than normal.
Aw her it goes 9if you didn’t read that in the Keenan and Kel voice you’re wrong).
I shoved Scorpius off the side of the bed with a loud thud.
Normal reaction. Totally.
I didn’t fancy Scorpius Malfoy. I really didn’t.
I can’t hear you over your blatant LIES ROSE.
“You hate failure.”
In which I am Scorpius.
He looked even more irritated.
Scorpius is just like THIS IS DUMB WHY COLORS.
“What do you mean?”
Okay this is just reminding me of this video of Ryan Steele painting on Matt Doyle’s face and THEY’RE SO IN LOVE IT HURTS AND SCORPIUS AND ROSE IT JUST FEELS.
YOU GOT IT BAD GURL.
Get it get it.
“I’m not sure why you stopped,”
And just like that, he was gone.
Good ol’ Scorpius.
It was funny how confused a girl could get in a matter of hours. The very same boy that had made my heart slam into my ribcage had that very same day made me question everything while in my bed, staring at the ceiling.
OH HEY THIS IS MY LIFE. RIGHT NOW. THIS VERY MOMENT.
Man can barely handle a wand when he’s emotional.
Good ol emotional range of a teaspoon.
“I just want it to be simple again,”
Yeah feelings tend to muck it all up.
PS This chapter is really long dang gurl.
Oh Scorpius =[
Now they’re fighting. Great.
“Just don’t leave, okay?”
Ew cheese flavored banana bread.
I just love Ron and Hermione in this story. Have I mentioned that? Cause I do.
“That’s Scorpius Malfoy!” Hugo cried, pointing like an ash butt.
I’m enjoying this dinner scene. Far too much.
“I quite like him,” Hugo said to no one at all.
Basically I love this story sometimes you just need a nice fluffy story to read and this is perf.
AliAuthor's Response: This is what happens when you are "responsibile." Ugh. Join the cool kids already, four eyes.
Rose lies to herself too much. Ron, anyone?
I love the idea of Scorpius trying to paint. My fave.
LOL get it get it.
It really is a long chapter. Rose didn't want to shut up. She's really rude about it.
FEELS. There are so many feels.
Everyone has commented on that banana bread.
I love Ron & Hermione so, so much. Ron is my fave. Ginger love forevs.
LOL ash butt.
Hugo. Finally. Jump on the train, Hugo!
AH PLEASE CONTINUE QUICKLY OMIGOSH IT'S SO GOOD I LOVE THIS SO MUCH AND YOU'RE AMAZING.Author's Response: Doing my best thank you so much for the review and all of the caps. I have such a soft spot for caps :) Thanks! Report Review
I think that if Rose didn't care so much, she never would have slapped Scorpius and ranted like a psycho at him. She is hurting darn it, and she wanted to make sure he felt it too.
The other woman has no reason to show up, but if you want to add some real conflict, you could always say Draco sent for her and paid her air fare.
Wonderful chapter. Almost forgot about the note. Maybe have her read it just before Scorpius decides to do something stupid.
See you next chapter :)Author's Response: I completely agree. Rose needs to be honest with herself and Scorpius needs to be honest with himself. then they need to be honest with each other. It's not a game and they can't avoid it for much longer.
The story is already complete, but we'll see what happens in terms of Miss Danielle...
Thanks :) Report Review

You can't just end it like that! I need to know what happens! Great chapter, I'm trying to imagine all of Rose's creations in my head right now :) why is Scorpius so desperate? I need to know please, update soon! Oh and thanksAuthor's Response: I'm doing my best! I'm updating 4 stories at once so it gets hard to update them soon depending on the length of the queue.

wait shits going down with his mom isnt it? oh my god update fast!!Author's Response: Going as fast as possible!! Updating 4 stories at once :) thank you! Report Review
Can i just say that i absolutely love Ron? He's exactly how i had imagined him as a dad! :D
Ohh she did slapped Scorpius! I must say, i quite enjoyed that scene!
I really like how Rose wants to become a painter. It's something quite new because most people expect her to end up like Hermione, doing something in the ministry or make-a-change sort of stuff. Her ambition to become a painter is different and it makes a very nice change from reading how other people (including myself) characterize Rose!
Update soon! :DAuthor's Response: Thank you!! Ron is my favorite character in the HP-verse so any opportunity to write him I will certainly take. I had been waiting for a chance to write him as a dad and I love the way he turned out. Exactly how I imagined him at that age.
I really like that Rose wants to be different. She does what she loves and I agree that a lot of people feel she'd be like a mini-Hermione. I like her taking more of Ron's route though. Being a daddy's girl and more creative rather than logical. Ron didn't always have a great deal of logic and neither does Rose, unless it involves following the rules.
Thank you so much! Hope you like the rest! Report Review
Still a wonderful story, wonderfully written. I like the Weasleys. The painting seemed kind of appropriate, I'm not sure why... Rose's revelation that she really would try to be a painter. I did wonder why Scorpius was so desperate. I do get it though, I reckon. Because he actually likes her and doesn't want her to dislike him, I would guess. But for a moment I thought maybe his mum had died.Author's Response: I'm glad you are enjoying the story thus far. There are definitely a lot of layers to it, and Scorpius' desperation has more than one layer to it as well, as you'll find. Thank you so much for the review :) hope you like the rest! Report Review
I'm like dying here!!
Hey is that a shooting star?
I wish this story got updated every Thursday (or Wednesday or any day really)!!
Now you have to update more! Hahahahaha!
Ok that was an awkward review.
Anyway it was totally awesome
Peace out byeAuthor's Response: Thank you for the review! I wish I could update once a week, but I have 3 other stories going as well and I don't think it would be fair to the rest of the people who love my stories to deprive them of James and Freddie. Can't do that, can I? And it depends on the length of the queue as well.
Regardless, thank you so much for the review! I really hope you enjoy the rest of the story and I can't wait to see what you think of the next chapter :) Report Review
noo rosey open the letter!!! SCORPIUS LOVES U! why can't she see it?!?!?! actually im SO glad you kept rose mad for the entire chapter. So many authors make something big happen and then the characters forgive and forget right away. like what?? NO! let the characters figure it out slowly!!! So far you're doin it PERFECTLY! i absolutely love this story to death. Rose is hilarious. So is Hugo. And Scorp. And Ron. basically anyone who talks is hilarious. its awesome. Author's Response: She probably can't see it since he lied to her about something that big.
BUT I want to say I'm thrilled you said that and I agree. Rose will forgive when she's ready and when she has all the facts. She's just not ready to hear them yet.
I'm so glad you're enjoying it so far! thank you SO much! Report Review
Is this the first review I've left for this story? Really? Shame on me. What a wonderful story. Quite amazing, honestly. Love Rose. Love how passionate she is about painting. Love how much she wants to create stuff and just live her dream. Scorpius...I did like him. I like the part where he gets slapped, that's good fun. Blargh. Rose should just tromp off to his rental and smack him again and then shove his stupid scroll where the sun don't shine. Was that violent? That was violent. Well, I'm proud of her for making him suffer because lying like that is a real son of cookie move. CAN'T WAIT FOR THE NEXT CHAPTER. I want honesty! Go honesty! I want tear-jerking, emotional, heart-wrenching scenes of angst! Also, I kind of want to meet Danielle. I think she'll appear before the end of the story. Rose won't let him explain, he'll just find a way because he's a conniving Slytherin. She'll probs end up trusting him again, but I don't think she'll let him kiss her again. What I really think is going on is a jerk (cough Scorpius) didn't bother to tell a sweet, innocent painter his true evil intentions. But don't get the wrong idea, I don't hate Scorpius. I just think he was a right jerk.Author's Response: Aw, but I'm super glad you left it! I'm so happy you're enjoying the story as well as the characters.
I'm also glad you feel that way about what Rose should do to Scorpius. I happen to agree. Hopefully things settle down between them because their chemistry is undeniable. but first they need to start being honest.
Son of a cookie. HAHA.
I think you're probably right about something in there. And by probably, I mean you are.
thank you so much for the review. I really hope you enjoy the rest of the story :) Report Review
