This is fantastic! Okay, so I'm biased in favour this ship and the post-Scorose idea, but apart from that, I still really liked this. The style of it is what makes the story - I was going to say bare of words, but that isn't quite right because it's not a "bare" story. Rather you've carefully chosen words and not overused them in any way. You give a lot of reign to the reader to imagine and see things beyond the words.
There are a few favourite lines in this. :P Staring with the flicks on the corners of Rose's eyes, which are a perfect way of referring to Scorose without actually mentioning it. You reveal a thousand words (if not more) of history there that doesn't need explaining. I was also a fan of the pyjamas as good for lazy sorrow - it's so true! - and "I had a good conversation with my toast this morning." I didn't expect to laugh while reading this, and you made me do it right there. It's fun to make Rose a little eccentric, and you do it very simply, but also excellently. How could Teddy resist her after that? ;)Author's Response: I'm rather biased towards Teddy/Rose as well, I absolutely love it. This review absolutely made my day! (or rather, my yesterday since it took me this long to come up with a semi-coherent reply XD)
This is actually probably one of the stories I'm proudest of, because I just sat down and wrote it out of the blue, whereas normally I have to let things simmer for a while. I'm really happy you enjoyed it.
I'm glad you liked the flickers, I didn't want to make Scorpius significantly noticeable in the story because I thought it would detract from her moving on, so I'm happy it turned out alright.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a lovely review *hugs*
I loved this, i had a broken heart when i read this but now i feel so much better. Thank you. Also, your a fantastic writer, the description you work into the story is simply amazing. You have so much talent and should keep writing.

Aww, this is cute. I love the toast conversation. The connection between the first line and the near last line. Really brings the story together. The characterization of Rose is very lovely, nice and bright and cheerful. Well, later on at least. Sometimes the full on first person is a little to much, especially with her thoughts, but for the most it was well written. It is very good to show how sad she was at the start of the story. Very quirky. ;)
Hugs, HPBAuthor's Response: You're too kind *blushes* I do agree with the first person being too much on occasion, but I had difficulty toning it down and keeping the same mood. I'm incredibly happy you enjoyed it, thanks so much for taking the time to leave this lovely review :) Report Review
The beginning part kind of (to me) seemed like it could be lyrics to a song.. Weird haha. I thought this was very good, cute short and simple. I liked it!
