-_- You're seriously putting me on my toes, I can't sleep. Hahaha, amazing story. Just marvellous. Report Review
I'm speechless. No. I have too many things to say.
It had been only one chapter and you're leaving me standing on my toes. I'm scared, nervous, excited and al you can think of feeling when you watch a great thriller movie.
Seriously, A PAGE TURNER.
I'm listening to Clint Mansell while reading this, and it didn't help me calm down. I have to stop at some point just to take a breather... Report Review
I have read a lot of Scorpius/Rose stories, and have quickly gotten tired of the same plot line over and over again, but your story is so original! I loved it. I would even say it is one of the best I have read. The drama was not forced, their relationship did not move too fast, and the baby portion actually fit well. The pace was perfect and your descriptions of Morocco were amazing; I felt like I was there! Thank you for writing such a wonderful story! Report Review
This is my 4th time reading this story and i am just in love with it!! You are a brilliant writer. and it is just all so realistic! Report Review
The other day I was trying to find a good fanfiction story to read, and was getting frustrated and just decided to go back and read an amazing one I had already read! I still love this story! I think it is my all time favorite one! :) Report Review
There are truly not enough adjectives in the world to describe how amazing this is. I started it and I was hooked. Its everything you'd love in a good story! It has humor, charm, realism, respect to J.K and sheer brilliance on your part.
This is amazing. Report Review

I read this all in one night, and I absolutely loved it. I love stories that are just more that just romance. It had action, it was intense, and it was really well written. Amazing job. LOVED it. Again. Haha:) Report Review
Oh my gosh. This is amazing. I'm pumped for this story, lol. The plot is exquisite, the characterisations so far are divine and the writing is skilful and the words are utilised artfully. Great first chapter! Report Review
Hello, I hate the violance and war ... but I love Rose and Scorpius in your story . so I read it backwards ... a little browsing . but in the end I read all chapters. It was fantastic. For my sleep I will think about your story as a story for peaceful time for witches as their fiction. I canīt stand the thougt that the children of the war heroes should live in war . which is absurd . Anyway I love your story ... I am just only not so strong ... Report Review
I'm really enjoying the story, great job. Just a tiny typo--causalities instead of casualties. I only mention it because it made me smile and think of statistics in the middle of a very tense moment ;) Report Review

i loved this story! thanks soo much for writine :) Report Review
This is actually pretty brilliant so far. It's been a while since I've read such an original concept for a HPFF. Good work! Report Review
I really loved this! I was looking for some new good fics to read, and this is so much better than what I was hoping for. I just love the plot, because when I was younger I thought about what would happen if the magical world decided to let the muggles know about them. Have to read more now, and I doubt I'll get much sleep this night! Report Review
Oh man this is so hectic. I did research on Mengele a few years ago and it was horrific, all those children and what he did to them and how they didn't even realise his evilness because he was so charming and they called him Uncle Mengele and he bought them sweets ... truly sick...
I think this story is really really great. You have managed to pull off writing about something so heavy in a convincing and interesting way. Well done you! Report Review
The characters are so authentic. I actually feel like I'm in the story and the characters personalities seem like you thought about it. Sometimes i wish i had this book in paperback to read whenever i wanted. Report Review
I swear i thought you were J. K. Rowling herself. You have very well rounded characters! Report Review
I came back from Marrakech last weekend and I just had to read your story again. I'm still amazed at how wonderfully you portray the city, everything is so accurate and when reading this, I almost felt like I was back in the Djemaa el-Fna, listening to the storytellers speak in a language I didn't understand.
The only two things I noticed were the mint tea, which is definitely not refreshing because it's too sweet and the fact that Rose and Scorpius took a long time to visit the market. That's almost impossible if you spend your days walking through the souqs, sooner or later you'll land there. But it's such a different place during the day compared to the evening that it doesn't make a difference to the story if they caught a glimpse of the almost empty square during the day before.
Anyway, I'm left speechless at your amazing ability to tell this story. I need to have been in a place to understand it and even then I have problems describing the story. After having seen Marrakech with my own eyes, this is now definitely my favourite story on HPFF and I'll come back here to read it again when I want to be reminded of my holiday! Report Review
loooved it! will there be a sequel? xx Report Review
Great idea for a short story. I read this over and over again. Very creative. I commend your story telling skills and creativity. This is one of the best Rose/Scorpius fanfictions that I have read and trust me I have read a lot. Report Review
I dont really understand if this is a HP fanfiction. They are not muggle spies!!! they are aurors. They dont need to blend in to get information. They can easily put an imperior curse and make them do whatever they want. They can control them and thus the whole organization!!! They can even oblivate them and make forget about magic altogather. No muggle is a match for a wizard especially if he is a trained auror. Why on earth would Scorpius have to go to egypt! He can easily confund them in a blink of an eye. I cant help but wonder are you even a HP fan?Author's Response: what a strange ending question! I can understand what you are saying but this is the world I have created - this story is about power and fear and doing what is right. i don't believe for a second that, in this new world, post-voldemort, that wizards would just up and use mind-control on their enemies! the thing is, they are thinking of the future - thinking of how things will be with the two worlds combined and having wizards do what you are suggesting would not make a very good start for relationships between muggles and wizards. perhaps you have never thought of these things, i don't know, but there are politics at play here. the point is that wizards are striving to NOT be like muggles and just throw down and use their abilities to make muggles fear them even more. perhaps you missed the point of this story?

Kate this was a great read! You did a phenomenal job - the setting, the characters, the action - I'm glad I read it after completion because it deserved that momentum.
Confession: I don't think Maria is your baddest bad guy. Yes, she's pure evil, a shadow of all that is bad looming over everything, but in this story, Cass is your fully-fledged villain. I think you do a great job with her. I like the ambiguity at the end - did she really mean it? Without that ambiguity the wrap-up would have been too clean. I personally believe she is cutting her losses rather than truly converted. I see her emerged from suicidal to survivalist but her arc isn't complete in this story (and it doesn't need to be). There's enough humanity somewhere deep in there to hope for a change, but she's done too much for it to be an easy reverse.
The battle is over (not won) but the conflict continues. I'm glad you are doing a companion piece. I won't be so late with that one.
~ TyAuthor's Response: Ty, thank you so much darling. i am really pleased you enjoyed it!!! *hugs*
oh no. maria is not the baddest bad guy. she is evil but she is more...misguided in her evilness. cass is evil - she is the villain. i am really stoked you liked her. i don't know where she came from - she worries me a little, lol. i agree with you - she has cut her losses, like joe basically suggested she do. i don't see her as converted in any way - just doing what she needs to do to survive. i am really happy you see that too!!
thank you darling!!! This review has made my day!
