House Cup 2014 Review

Hello hello! Back to step out of my comfort zone and read a story that goes again what I usually go for :p

I had to read through it another time because it's far too late and I'm sleep deprived and now I understand that this is a post ScoROse Rose/Teddy fic. I think that even thought it goes against my pairing, it is quite interesting and unique. I'm glad I gave it a shot.

The last line was such a genius way to allude to ScoRose without actually talking about it explicitly. As I've said before, you're so talented that you manage to convey the message of a thousand words in just a hundred. You say so much without really saying anything at all.

I really like the conversation that she has with Teddy. It gives me the sense of comfort and ease and great chemistry. So probably got a much better relationship with him than the one she left behind with Scorpius.

I loved the writing style. It's so lyrical an sounds pretty, if that makes sense. Honestly, I really enjoyed this and it taught me that I should experiment more with my choices. I'd have hated to miss out.

Review #2, by nott theodore Don't Worry, Be Happy

7th July 2014:
Hello again! I'm kind of setting up camp on your page for a little bit because it's great to discover a writer you've not found out about before in a task like this and get the chance to read and review a lot more of their stories!

I loved the fact that you wrote a Rose/Teddy story after Rose and Scorpius had been in a relationship. I've not read many stories featuring this ship but the ones I have read, I've loved, and this was no exception. I felt like it was a much better relationship than the one that she's left behind with Scorpius - and the mentions of the flicker of blond at the corner of her eyes seemed to confirm that to me. I also thought the way that you worked in the song lyrics and the overall feel of the song was brilliant. It was nice to read something that was much happier and fluffier from you, and it just makes me even more impressed with your writing because you can write such different styles so well. It's so amazing to read and I've loved this chance to discover some of your work - I'll hopefully be back soon when I get a chance!

Sian :)
Gryffindor House Cup 2014 Review

Author's Response: I know what you mean! I stumbled across several authors throughout the House Cup that have been added to my stalking list :P
I am a huge Teddy/Rose fan. I enjoy a good Rose/Scorpius as next as the next person, but it just feels too inevitable to me, too much like the Dramione that you can actually get away with canonically. To write myself, I just find that Teddy/Rose feels like it has more scope, and there are fewer fixed stereotypes out there than for Rose/Scorpius.
I have no idea where this story came from! I remember being in a really bizarre mood when I wrote this, and it just kind of happened with no forethought or planning or anything. I am actually quite proud of this one, because it is kind of different for me. I've only really ever written maybe two or three fluffy stories in amongst a sea of angst and violence, so it was a nice change.
Thank you again! You are far too lovely -hugs-

Review #3, by Violet Gryfindor Don't Worry, Be Happy

14th August 2010:
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*

Review #5, by Harrypotterbookworm Don't Worry, Be Happy

14th August 2010:
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, HPB

Author'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 :)

Review #6, by WhatAboutRegulus Don't Worry, Be Happy

12th August 2010:
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!


Author's Response: Haha, thanks. I must've been in a musical mood XD I'm glad you enjoyed it - thanks so much for reviewing!
