Oh my goodness this is better than amazing! I'm so hooked and can't wait for the next chapter!! You've got some serious talent, I'm very jealous:) xxAuthor's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review. I'm so happy that you like Love Rules! Report Review
I LOVE this story, and I was sosososo excited to see you had updated!!!
I was disappointed when Rose left Hogwarts, but you've really made it work - this chapter had me on the edge of my seat! Your version of Scorpius is absolutely... delectable. So glad he's back in the story!
PLEASE keep writing! Waiting for updates on this story is killer, since it's so addictive. Awesome work!!Author's Response: Thanks so much for taking the time to read and review! It's really appreciated :)
I couldn never stop writing this story! Love it far too much. Report Review
Whew! I am so relieved I can't even describe it! I was so afraid Rose would be imprisoned in there forever. I knew pretty much as soon as I saw how mistreated they were that all was not exactly on the up-and-up at that hospital. And now you have our Scorpius helping get her out! Can't wait to read more!Author's Response: Couldn't leave her rotting away forever! I'm glad she's escaped too, I miss Hogwarts.
Thanks heaps for taking the time to read and review, I really appreciate it :) Report Review
I am beyond obsessed with this story. Like I stayed up all night to finish it. Pretty please update soon!Author's Response: Oh no, no sleep! Hehe I do that all the time with stories on HPFF.
Thank you for reading and leaving a review! It's greatly appreciated :) Report Review
not carried away at all. i liked how it was a bit reminiscent of searching Umbridges office. Hope you'll keep writtingAuthor's Response: Thank you, that's a relief to hear. I'll definitely keep writing. I hope you'll keep reading! Report Review
Please post the new chapter soon!Author's Response: I haven't written it yet! :o sorry hehe but as soon as it's done, you'll be the first (and only) peeps to see it.
Thank you for taking the time to review ! Report Review
Ah so exciting! My stomach was in knots all the way through this chapter. Fiu, glad it went well though. And the end! Lucy! Scorpius! Teddy! It was perfect. (I love your Scorpius, by the way. Sometimes he's a bit too complicated for no reason for our poor old Rosie but it's okay, we forgive him, don't we? He is the cutest and most perfect imaginary boy/man.) It was very good, though.
I find that this story has so many twists and turns and unfoldings you sometimes forget what you're reading and what is happening outside of the current chapter. For example, Rose in the hospital is a COMPLETELY different person from the Rose during Christmas break and it's really stunning how you evolved and changed her character into someone really interesting and realistic. It's crazy how much all of the scenes change with Rose as she grows up.
All in all I think this is a great story. I do think that sometimes the drama does get a bit too repetitive- for example, when Rose and Scorpius fight or don't get along. Or when Rose hates the world and no one gets along. It gets a bit tiring. But other than that, it's a really good fanfiction with lots of interesting and mysterious happenings. Ouh lala.
Thanks a lot for posting it. I also can relate to Rose because even though I am not anorexic and do not have an eating disorder, many of the thoughts I have were the same as the ones she was having; about calories, food, my body image, what others would think of me. It gets tiring and it makes you feel like poo. Can we swear on here? It makes you feel like shi*, in other words (just in case). As a teenage girl, it really is hard to completely love your body and this story really portrays that well, in a not at all common way. It isn't a cliched story about an anorexic girl who just gets better like THAT. It's intricate and it takes time.
I can't wait to see what the next chapters have in store! What will happen? Wooo, who knows? Well you do, but we don't, so I'm really curious.
AHHH! AND ROSE AND SCORPIUS! THEY HAVE NEVER EVEN KISSED PROPERLY. Fix that. Quickly.
Also, how many chapters are left in total?
Thanks for the chapter again, and please update soon.
10/10 cause this chapter was so exciting that it bamboozled my brain with suspense.
SofiaAuthor's Response: Wow, hello :)
Such an amazing review! Thank you for taking the time to read and then write it.
First I want to address your comment on the repetitive drama - thank you, I needed to hear that. I find it so easy to get carried away with what I'm doing, and then I'll read a few chapters and think, "Wow this is just so dramatic!". My aim for the next few chapters is to wrap up some of the drama and straighten out any confusing plot lines. Because I absolutely agree, it does get exhausting!
Next, I really wanted to write a story that was relatable despite being about magic etc. Eating disorders and poor self esteem is sadly so common in contemporary society, and anyone can suffer. I hope I give some girls (and even guys) the strength to appreciate who they are and what they can do in life.
A kiss, hey?? It has to happen soon! ;)
Again, thank you so much for taking the time to review. I really appreciate it, and I hope that you continue reading! Report Review
YES! I'm currently doing the cha cha because I'm that happy that Rose finally broke out!
I was actually beginning to like Trumpleton if it hadn't been for the fact that he was selling stories to the Daily Prophet. THAT'S WHAT YOU GET!
I just love how Teddy kept his cool the entire time and was all "my name is Stevenson, not Weasley," and it was like he was questioning the mans sanity. I love Teddy, hands down love Teddy.
The ending though was absolutely awesome! Scorpius is back people and he just helped Rose break out. I think that's pretty much got him back in Rose's good book.Author's Response: Good old Teddy! I thought it was about time he came into the story.
You were liking Trumpleton!? Haha clearly I failed as a writer - you were meant to loathe him! Lucky I redeemed myself :P
Thank you sooo much for ANOTHER review! Super appreciated, as always. See you next chapter ;) Report Review
lets see... How did Scorpius get there? How about this. Teddy went to Ron for help, but in getting no where with him, Teddy turned to the next best replacement. He knew Scorpius has feelings for Rose and would do his best to help get her out of there, Sound good?
Loved the chapter!Author's Response: Hmm, perhaps perhaps (ha you're pretty much spot on, I suck at being mysterious/unexpected). But yeah, that's basically it. THANKS FOR RUINING MY STORY. Joking, I love you and appreciate every single review you leave. Honestly.
Thank you for sticking with me :) I haven't written the next chapter yet, but I will as soon as I can. Report Review
Hey, great chapter as always.. Can't wait to find out more about Lucy :) But, you should keep your chapters longer. Why upload the shorter version? :/ A lot of readers do like long chapters and your longest isn't even 4000 words when it can go up to 6000 or 7000 at least. Also, you should update more often and if you can, make a tumblr to tell update the readers when you'll post, and for sneak peaks and stuff like that. Anyway, can't wait for the next chapter!Author's Response: Aw thanks.
I try to keep them at a uniform length. More than 4000 is too much for me to keep the chapter flowing and logically interesting. But thanks for the suggestion!
I'm simply too busy to have a tumblr (plus I have no idea how to make one!). It's a good idea though. I guess I just have to rely on people checking for updates.
Thanks so much for taking time out to review! I hope you keep reading. Report Review
Words cant describe how amazing this story is. You're very talented in your portrayal of Rose's illness, and you handle the characters really well.Author's Response: A realistic portrayal of Rose's illness is exactly what I've been aiming for all this time, so thank you so much for your kind words.
can you update asap please because this story gives me butterflies im in loveAuthor's Response: Hehe I'll try! Still in the process of writing the next chapter, but hopefully it won't be too long. Thanks so much for your lovely review, and thank you for reading! :) Report Review
this whole story was absolutely amazing! i love it, the characters, the plot, the suspense. Please keep writing, I'm hopelessly addicted!Author's Response: Wow, thank you! You're so kind. I'll definitely keep writing to fuel your adiction hehe Report Review
WOW! thats an amazing twist to the entire story!
whatz goin on? who are these supercreepyHealers? :O I wanna know so bad :) update ASAP! I cant wait.
ps: sorry i didnt review before. had exams. which are thankfully over :D
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! (Y)Author's Response: Hehe I love your reviews. Ew exams. Mine aren't for another three months thankfully. At least they're over and done with for you!
Next update is coming up soon, and guess who's back in the story! :D Report Review
This is absolutely brilliant. Rose's anorexia is KILLING ME but I'm glad she's getting better. But the doctors! Gosh, they are like the most merciless doctors I've ever heard of! Outrageous, but you managed to pull it off WONDERFULLY. I really feel strong emotions (negative ones, that is) whenever Healer Trumpleton is mentioned. Overall I think this is a BEAUTIFUL Fan Fiction, and I encourage you to keep up the good work.Author's Response: Oh my goodness, thank you so much!
I know what you mean about the healers. I was quite unsure about making them evil, but I think it turned out alright. I'm glad that you don't like Trumpleton, those feelings of dislike that you mentioned were exactly what I was aiming for!
Thank you again for such a kind review. I'm really happy that you're enjoying my little story :) I'll definitely keep writing, and I hope that you keep reading. Report Review
This was amazing!!! I have missed the last few updates and it was killing me and now being able to read 4 at was like a dream! Haha. Brilliant writing! Loved the twist about mungos being evil. What will scorp do to make rose realise he's in love with her?? I hope he steps up and takes control of the situation. Anyway update quickly PLEASEAuthor's Response: Aww thank you :) I always get so excited when one of my favourite stories has been updated without me realising, so much more to devour!
I was a bit unsure about making Mungo's a harmful place, but I'm glad I did in the end. Scorpius is making another entrance in my next update, so keep an eye out!
Thanks so much for your lovely review, and thank you for reading! Report Review
Can I just tell you that in all portrayals of Rose Weasley, Scorpius Malfoy, and ScoRose, I love your portrayal in Love Rules. the way that you tackle Rose's eating disorder and her struggle to feel confident about her body just makes me relate SO much in a way that every single time I read about Rose going through a difficult time, I can't help but cry. And the fact that Scorpius and Rose aren't together isn't because of some stupid reason like he decided to be a jerk and snog someone else because he can't commit or something. their relationship portrayal is just so realistic and the way that they got close and how Scorpius was the only one who anchors Rose to reality and how he liked her even before Rose lost a bunch of weight just makes my heart swoon.
Like seriously, I love "Love Rules" and I hope you update soon (: I'm giving you a 10/10 because it won't give me 123819274918273918264 out of 10Author's Response: I am truly humbled and touched by your words. Thank you so much. I'm sorry that you can relate to her feelings, and can only hope that we all gain more self confidence in the future. Self-love all the way!
I always feel like I'm floundering with Rose and Scorpius, like I'm in over my head, so hopefully my next chapters can live up to your expectations!
Again, thank you so very much for your lovely words, and thank you for reading my silly little story :) Report Review
This part of St. Mungo's is a very scary place! Hopefully the Weasleys will be able to get all the girls out and to the help they really need. Great update!Author's Response: Isn't it just yucky? But don't worry, all will work out well in the end!
Thanks so much for your read and review! Report Review
Poor Lucy!!! That's so evil - keeping a nine-year-old girl away from her mother - do those people have hearts?! I know she needs to stay there and get better, but at least they should have permited her to see her family more often!
Also those 'healers' should definetly be send to Azkaban... or at least be fired! Oh, forget about it - the whole clinic sholed be closed! I'm just so angry!... I want to hex Trumpleton!... xD He definetly would deserve it!... Let's just hope Teddy will do something about it! :D
I just have no words to describe how awesome this fanfiction is! Haunting! Extraordinary! Flawless!
Can't wait for the next chapter! :)Author's Response: I know, but don't forget little Lucy is actually sick, so she does need treatment. Just not the horrible treatment she's getting!
I'm actually so humbled by your words. Flawless? Hardly, but I'm trying to improve with every chapter. Thank you so much for your lovely review, and thank you for reading and reviewing again! :) Report Review
Trumpleton must die. HE MUST GO! The man is pure evil! I don't know anything about wizarding law but I'm pretty sure what he's doing is against some kind of law.Author's Response: Haha death to him. But not really.
Definitely illegal, I'm sure. He'll get what's coming to him ;)
Thank you for reading and reviewing! Super appreciated :) Report Review
The Healers on this ward seem truly evil! I don't understand why they're all being so horrible because they obviously aren't helping the girls get better! I'm glad that Rose is helping the others and that is helping her to get better too.
Also, I'm so happy to see Teddy! I knew that her family would have to realise sooner or later that there was something wrong with the ward, and now there's light at the end of the tunnel for Rose and the others. I'm looking forward to the next chapter!Author's Response: Aren't they just awful. Their actions will be explained quite soon, promise.
It's lovely to have Teddy in my story. I've always loved his character in general, so I hope I can do him justice.
Thanks so much for your review! I really appreciate it. An update is on its way! Report Review
You have no idea how badly I feel like trundling in your direction and giving you a bone-crushing hug.
This chapter had me on the edge of my chair the whole time. WHAT A HORRID PLACE! How can people be this horrible? I love the way you're making Rose a stronger person all the time, and I hope something happens to her so-called 'Healers'.
TEDDY &hearts It actually makes a lot of sense, and it was great seeing him appear! Please tell me he and the Weasleys will manage to bring this ward down, so that not just Rose and Lucy are saved, but all the other girls too.
Again, I can only applaud the skill with which you describe eating disorders, and I hope it's not because of personal experience...
Awesome chapter again!Author's Response: Hugs are the best!
I love that Rose is getting stronger, it's so much more satisfying than writing her wasting away and getting sadder and sadder.
I thought it was more than time for Teddy to make an appearance! I briefly mentioned him near the start of the story, but that's about the extent so far. I'm excited to have so many new characters!
Thank you so much for all of your lovely reviews you leave me. I have only a little bit of personal experience, thankfully it was nowhere near as bad as Rose is. Report Review
I was hopeing someone would find a way in to see Rose. She doesn't belong there. So what is going on? A money scam? Keep the patients who pay? Keeping a 9 year old from her mother is sinful. I can't wait to see what happens next.Author's Response: You'll just have to wait and see! The main doctor plays a big part in what's going on.
Don't forget that the little girl is very sick. She needs to be there, but she doesnt need to be treated so poorly.
Thanks for another mega review! Still writing the next chapter so it wont be up super soon. Report Review
Please update!!! Love itAuthor's Response: New chapter is up! Thanks for reading :-) Report Review
I hope the next chapter is coming soon, because I'm going crazy waiting! X)
You've done a great job with the characters, and in general. I will admit - I'm a little bummed that she's not at Hogwarts anymore, but hopefully she'll be back soon. Awesome work!Author's Response: Hi there! A new chapter was meant to have come out a few days ago, but the validation got rejected haha so it'll be out as soon as it's revalidated! Oops :)
It's so great to hear some honest feedback, so thank you. She's got 2 more chapters (including the one that is about to be validated) out of Hogwarts, and then it's back to school.
Thanks so much for your locely review! I hope you keep reading in the future :) Report Review
