Wow, I'm loving this so far! The character dynamics are beautiful - I'm wondering if Albus might make an appearance - and I really like the gang. I'm interested to see how this plays out; should be good! Report Review
Oh my Merlin. I don't think I can ever adequately enunciate my adoration of this fic.
ROSE; oh. my. salazar. She was PERFECT - my friend (who I kept showing passages to) thinks she's like me, I don't know if I should be concerned about that ;) - and wonderful and hilarious and are you sure you've never written a romantic comedy before because damn, girl, she was the perfect character!
SCORPIUS; holy crap. He was beautiful. I adored him and how he managed to put up with Rose and HE WAS SUCH AN AWESOME PERSON BRO HE WAS FANTASTIC and ugh I have so much adoration for this character, tbh!
PIPPA; oh, what a babe. She was such a great character and I normally don't like Rose's OC!bestie because they normally are written annoyingly but I loved Pippa so kudos! She was funny and adorable and er romantic history and quirks gave her a rounded finish - her dynamic with others was both realistic and amazing!
ALBUS; oh, ally. Silly boy, listening to Roxanne. (; Seriously, he was great. He suited Pips so well, and I loved how adorable they were and how they tag-teamed Rose when she was being ridiculously irrational and "do anything but her" HIS REACTION CAN I BOTTLE IT UP AND CUDDLE IT
HUGO; I'm in two minds about this character. On one hand, I feel sorry for him because he's young and seems a bit of a pushover in an impressionable family. On the other, HOW COULD HE DO THAT. If I was Rose, I'd have hexed his nose off and called him Vold-incarnate. Because I'm nice like that. (;
Honestly, I loved it.
-- jane xoxoAuthor's Response: First off, let me say that I very much appreciate your penname. :D And secondly -- hello, and thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a review on this story (and such a long one at that)! I'm so glad you enjoyed it!
I'm quite sure I've never written a romantic comedy before, yes, and I'm very flattered you had to ask. :P Aren't Rose and Scorpius just the best? I loved writing this for all the dry humor it provided -- Rose's sarcasm, Al's sarcasm, Scorp's sarcasm. It's all very much derived from my equally dry sense of humor. :D I'm just over the moon that you typed out /all those characters/ to squee over them and oh my gosh, you're pretty much my favorite person right now. ♥
Again -- I'm so, so pleased you liked the story! If I've made one person happy with something I've written, then it's a success, and I cannot thank you enough for the review. ♥ Hope to see you back sometime! Thanks for being so awesome! :D Report Review
