That was a very nice touch having them both looking at the rain at the same time and thinking of each other. I loved that Albus loved the rain and Scorpius hated it, even though he would still look out of it.
It was so cute when Scorpius was telling Rose about what he knew about Albus, all of the little things that he clearly loved about him.
I'm so glad that they got back together in the end, and that Scorpius is now ready for a commitment.
Such a lovely one shot, I love the idea of Albus and Scorpius :D Report Review

Hey Sam :) Here from Slytherin Review Tag!
I think if I had to choose one slash ship, the most feasible (for me) would be Sirius/Remus and Albus/Scorpius. For some reason, I'm really interested in the idea of Albus and Scorpius being so close, and I had almost forgotten about this story, so I'm very glad that you were above me in the thread!
I really, really love the rain theme here, especially there in the beginning when you switched from Albus loving the rain to Scorpius hating it. It's sweet how they could be brought together by the same thing despite having differing attitudes toward it. I also love the scene with Rose -- it puts a nice spin on the fact that they're usually paired together but appear here as only friends. You've made the cliche new again!
I especially love this line: "Taking a deep breath and hoping for every ounce of courage a Slytherin could have, Scorpius stood up." I know it's simple, but I think it's really telling of the depth and complexity of his character as you wrote him.
The end of this was really poignant. I love the line about how the reality of Scorpius returning was nothing like Albus had dreamed of so many times. I'm glad that Albus and Scorpius found a happy ending after all of the heartache in this piece.
You're a really talented writer, and I should try to spend more time on your (very pretty) author's page in the future! :)

Okay, so I'm a horrible person for begging you to write this and not having the chance to review. But I'm here now, so I hope you can forgive the atrocious wait.
I love the idea of Albus/Scorpius, especially if Albus is a Slytherin so I really liked how this all started off as a friendship, one that wasn't necessarily accepted by their parents (moreso Scorpius's, based on his comments), and then it grew into a relationship. I think with his parents disapproval, it would make sense for him to be afraid of commitment too. It breaks my heart that, despite loving him, Albus had to walk away, but it shows that he knows Scorpius, really knows him, and he knew that he wasn't ready for the kind of commitment Albus wanted. It's like that line, "If you love something, set it free. If it comes back, it was meant to be."
I liked the contrast between the two boys - one loving the rain because of the comfort it brings, the other hating it because of its reminders of the one he lost. Of course it's raining on the day they reunite, but then the rain stops. So precious.
I also enjoyed Rose's little cameo, how she felt the need to meddle in Albus's life because he was miserable and wanted Scorpius back. She's a good cousin, and James is a great older brother - accepting of Albus's relationship but still willing to kick ass.
This was a lovely one-shot and I'm glad it had a happy ending. Thank you so much for writing one of my new favorite ships and I'm really sorry about how long I took to get around to reviewing it.Author's Response: No, don't think you're a horrible person! I forgive you! :D
Albus is cool as a Slytherin. And Albus/Scorpius are amazing. I have different ways the families take their friendships/relationships in different stories, but I liked this way for this one-shot because it fit the song that inspired it. It made compete sense to be afraid and Al walking away was just so sad. It's definitely like that line.
That was my favorite part; I could just imagine Albus watching the rain. :)
Every loving family member must meddle at some point. In this it's Rose (in my Scorpius/Hugo it's Teddy). And I love James; he is awesome.
Thank you so much for reviewing. I'm so glad you asked for me to write this, because I love Al/Scor and I just loved writing this fic. Don't apologise; I understand real life gets busy. I'm just glad that you like it. :)
