I absolutely love your depiction of Rose. Making her more like Ron than Hermione, without having to exactly spell it out. She's hilarious. Probably my favourite Rose.

Ahhh, I'm not feeling v articulate today but baaically this was amazing and hilarious and I'm really glad I've read this since it's been a while since I've read a next gen fic that I like and is actually complete!

Plums xo

Author's Response: I'm so glad you liked it!! It's been a while since I wrote this, obviously, but I do remember how fun it was to write something besides dark, romantic angst, which was my forte. :P I'm honored that you read this all so quickly, too!

Thank you so much for your sweet reviews -- these made my day! ♥

So I've been too addicted to this story to leave reviews on the other chapters (very sorry, by the way, but they're great!) but OH MY GOD, ROSE

Author's Response: No worries at all for not reviewing every chapter! I don't expect it (or reviews at all, really), and am just happy you're enjoying the story. :)

So glad you like it! Thanks for taking the time to leave me a note!

Girl, I just read this entire story in one sitting and I absolutely loved it! Rose was so funny and random XD not to mention, your insults were so witty! I especially enjoyed the dandruff/snow one hahaha it was great. Also, Scorpius was nice and adorable, it was refreshing. Overall LOVE IT

Author's Response: I'm so happy to hear from you, and even more thrilled that you enjoyed this story! I'm pleased you thought Rose was funny. I don't read a lot of next gen, so I had no idea how this story compared with others, but I'm happy (once again) that you found it refreshing!

This review made my day. ♥ Thank you for taking the time to leave it! Hope to see you back around soon!

House Cup 2015- Gryffindor!

Hey there :) I'm here to restart you story as a part of this edition of the House Cup. I'm picking up from where I left off last time. That being said, I have read this story many times in the year that has passed. I don't know why I've never reviewed it.

Moving on to the story, I love Rose and her nonsense. She's just so funny. I love that you've written it from her point of view because her thoughts are every brand of crazy and that takes this to a new level of ridiculous hilarity.

Pippa's gum chewing is quite a unique characteristic, and I love how she's always by Rose's side, feeling generally amused in life. Hugo's little part was pretty funny too. Oh, Hugo! When will be ever learn?

My two favourite parts were Rose's interaction with McGonagall and the part where her list flew to exactly where Julian was sitting. At both points, I was literally laughing out loud, much to my mum's puzzlement.

While Rose's thoughts and actions never fail to have me chuckling, I think your writing and how well it reads has a lot to do with how this story is delivered as well. I think that the flow is very smooth, and I love how you just induct common phrases into the 'wizarding vocabulary', if I may call it so. For example, I love how 'bigger fish to fry' became 'bigger cauldrons to charm'.

Anyway, this was fantastic, as usual. I know why it has become my go-to happy story. Great work ♥

Oh, and one last thing. I want a Scorpius. Can I have this one? ♥

House Cup 2014 Review

Hello again :) HOW could I not continue, right? :p

This might possibly be my favourite chapter of the four. It's really, really well written and there was some good plot progression in this one. I like how you aren't wasting much time with introductions. We're four chapters in, and the plot has already progressed a bit :) I suppose I should have seen that coming though. It's only ten chapters long!

I loved the opening sequence. The amount of disbelief that both Pippa and Al harboured for Rose's apparent sudden change of heart was just hilarious! The way you wrote, how they reacted and everything was lovely! I don't think I've mentioned this before, but I really like how Pippa is shaping up. Her gum addiction is a unique characteristic that I haven't really thought or read about!

I did spot one typo here though:
a little hurt that they thought I could turn a new leaf so quickly. I think you meant couldn't ;)

The part where she said she was elegant and proceeded to stab her kipper and everything else about that actually made me laugh aloud.

The second part of this chapter was pretty amazing as well :D I love Scorpius' ideas for these 'lessons', though it's hilarious that she couldn't even find one thing she had in common with the most-amazing Julian Murdoch, except for writing difficult exams (LOL). I also particularly loved the part where you made a reference to her plan of going back to her thoughts of being elegant. I basically laughed my way through it all :p

The last line was a tad hopeful, don't you think? Just a tad :p Oh, and Madam Pince? Spot on, I say! THIS is exactly how I have believed she would remain. Cranky, batty old lady!

Anyway, another fabulous chapter. I suspect you will be seeing me quite soon :D

House Cup 2014 Review

Hello :) I'm back after a good night's worth of much needed sleep. My internet died, forcing me to retire for the night.

Anyway, Rose never fails to amuse me. I cannot tell you how glad I am that you're writing from her point of view. Her thoughts are, as always, hilarious :D As for Scorpius, isn't he sneaky? Making deals like this with Rose. Though at this point, I can't decide if I want Rose to end up with Scorpius, or Julian. I'm a major Sco/Rose shipper, but Julian seems... hot. Well, I guess I can only decide when we find out more about him :p

I like the opening scene. McGongall and Rose, being the boss she is. And his Quidditch mates and OH GOD. I laughed a lot again(marmalade to your porridge?! HAHAHAHA :D-genius). I suppose I should stop telling you this constantly because we have established that you've got this whole nextgen humour thing under control!

Favourite lines.? I don't know. A lot of things made me laugh. I can't choose. I'm glad I took a break from all the depressing stuff to read this. It's so well written.

I love the plot idea. This deal sounds like it'll shape up well. I can't wait to find out what happens next :)

House Cup 2014 Review

Hello again :) I'm back to drop off another review!

I really am loving this story. A LOT. Rose is such a fun character, and I'm glad you're writing from her point of view. The stuff she says and thinks is just golden. I've been reading a lot of depressing stories, so this is somethinf I was dire need of, actually. Once again, I'm impressed by your skills.

I loved the dialogue again. The banter between Rose and Scorpius is witty and fun to read. I know that Rose positively detests Scorpius at the moment, but I can't help it! It's no secret that I am slightly in love with the man, and your interpretation of him is lovely to read :D I've been laughing so much! I'm already dreading the fact that this is only ten chapters long.

I love the the progression of events in the potions class room. From Rose ogling Julian (who, by the way, sounds like a complete hottie) to the bubble gum popping. And of course, Slughorn with his instructions and winking and general obliviousness. Ah, you got him spot-on! As for Hooch, she too seems to be in line with whatever little we know of her. I love her conversations with Rose though. Rose's thought process become more biting, in a different way.

Ahahaha xD THAT ENDING. It was so funny. I'd love to know what Scorpius has in mind to get back at her.

Another great chapter :)

House Cup 2014 Review

If I may be completely honest, I have been eyeing this one for a while. And when I visited your page earlier, I fully intended to R&R this. I got sidetracked by all the awesomeness you have on there, though :p

I can;t believe how you seamlessly transition between different genres. How can one person be so good at everything? SHARE YOUR SECRETS WITH THE WORLD. Erm, okay, I'll keep that side of me away from now :p

I love Rose/Scorpius. It's a nextgen airing I really enjoy, so this is probably going to be right up my preferences :) As much as I love angst, we all need something light and funny. I love your characterisation of all the characters so far. Rose is delightful. Her snide remarks and internal monologue are so funny. I couldn't contain myself. I loved the idea of her being a commentator. I haven't a story like this before, so this should be interesting! I also love the dialogue and interaction between the characters. Everything was so lively. I don't think there was a dry moment in your story :)

You've set up the opening chapter nicely. It reads well and the plot line seems to be interesting. Add that to the humour and everything, and this should be a winner :D

Before I turn this into a gush fest, I must go. I'm reviewing for house cup, so I'm trying (and failing) to leave short and speedy reviews. So I'll see your around soon :) Lovely first chapter!

I really love this story!
Your word choice is very good and I love your style of writing - not too descriptive, yet very enjoyable!
Okay, now I have to read the next chapter, which I can't wait for... So ciao, and great work!

Author's Response: I'm glad you've enjoyed this (very different) novella, too -- quite different from Break Out! This was a lot of fun to write, and I still haven't ruled out returning to this sort of zany next gen, even though it's been a solid year and a half since you left this review.

Thanks for reviewing! ♥

15th August 2013:
This Rose that you portray in this story is so cool and fun to read! :) It's a really original take on her, and I love Scorpius in this too! I especially love the detail you payed to the quidditch-ness, and the banter between Scorpius and Rose is very well formed, witty and funny!

The narrative of Rose runs so fluently through this story! She's so humourous, and the structure of where you put her thoughts and opinions on things/people was spot on and well spaced out! This really helped it flow, and the way the lines were spaced and stuff made it even more funny! Hahah I liked the comments about her missing breakfast and also about Pippa! :P The way Rose saluted to Madame Hooch was hilarious as well, and I can see the Ron element in her, as well as the studious witty side of Hermione. The metaphor with Hagrid's salamanders was very witty, and it made me laugh loads!

The whole plot of the story is very engaging, and you create this captivating atmosphere right from the start, with these lingering lines that really make you want to read on. You don't get too deep in to the whole revenge thing either, which is awesome, because other wise it would be boring and angsty hahah :P

Pippa's nice, but she seems like the kind of person who could hack you off a bit, so I agree with Rose that she finds her annoying. I can totally empathise with Rose getting annoyed at having Pippa and Albus as a couple too. Scorpius is quite harsh to Rose, at least from her point of view anyway, and so I can see why Rose announced what she did. However, I'm interested to see what Scorpius will do back next chapter.

Altogther, a really funny and addictive story! I love the title, and the plot, and the characterisation and everything is brilliant!

-Sophie :D

Author's Response: I'm really glad you like her! She was a lot of fun to write -- all of these characters were, actually. My Rose is heavily inspired by a Rose that Sarah once wrote, so I can't take full credit, but she's endlessly entertaining. I've actually got a full sequel short story/novella planned for this story, and if I ever do write any big HPFF thing again, I can see that being it. I actually sort of miss the wackiness that went along with Rose and Scorp and company.

I'd always wanted to do a big Quidditch-focused story, and even if this wasn't a novel, this satisfied that craving pretty well. Writing about Quidditch constantly is hard! That's where the other classroom scenes come in handy -- a nice break from the sports side of things, which, admittedly, isn't my favorite part.

Pippa and Albus are both a little obnoxious -- well, so is Rose, but she's very in-your-face about how annoying she is, and I do have to respect that somewhat. ♥ This is definitely my turn away from my usual angsty, dark writing and it was a great outlet at the time, and another huge reason why I'd like to attempt the sequel. Nearly everything I write is on the darker and angstier side of things in general, and banter/fluff is a good reprieve from that occasionally.

Thank you for reading this and letting me know your thoughts, Sophie! I really am so pleased you enjoyed it so much, and each new review on this story gets me thinking about that sequel more and more. It's something I'm seriously considering!

Review #13, by Galawen Ten

18th July 2013:
I loved this entire story! Your characterization of Rose was so different from what most people do. Usually I see a completely in control and serious Rose with very sensible tendencies and despite having a temper she never makes a fool of herself. Well your Rose was certainly not like that especially evident by the line in this chapter "Iíve made such a great impression on this schoolís faculty. I donít think any of them believe for a second that I am my motherís daughter." and I loved it! She was so much more believable, even she was slightly crazy and as a result I loved the Scorpius you created to compliment her. He is more steady and more friendly than most other ones and he acts as the calm to her storm. Even their relationship was clearly more banter than genuine hatred and as a result when you had them kiss at the end there was no feeling that it was incongruous. Instead it just felt normal!
To summarise I loved this story, it was light, easy-to-read and you would never be able to tell that you're not well-versed in romantic comedies and considering I've read some of your much darker fics, that's just a testament to your writing skills. Great job!

Author's Response: Thank you! I'm glad that you enjoyed it -- I had so much fun writing it, and hearing positive things about it is really encouraging. :) This Rose was largely inspired by an old story of Toujours Padfoot's, but her fun, zany, wacky, lovable Rose always stuck with me. When I did get the idea to do a next generation-era romantic comedy, that sort of Rose/Scorpius was the very first thing that popped in my head. And, of course, someone that flighty and floaty needs a strong, sensible Scorpius (woah there, alliteration) to nail her down!

Reading over reviews for this story has made me realize that I do miss writing something like it. I have a little chapter outline for a sequel tucked away somewhere, and who knows? I may just get around to writing that soon! I miss Scorp and Rose here; they're like wacky friends.

Thank you again for reviewing this for me! You've said such lovely things, and even though it's taken me a while to respond properly, that reflects nothing on your awesome review. It was really nice hearing from you! ♥

So, I said I wanted Next Gen, and here I am. SURPRISE!

I think it's the sixth or seventh time I come back to this, and it was about time I actually reviewed.

Your Rose is probably my favourite Rose ever, and lord knows how many of those there are. Now, I don't usually laugh aloud when I read, but this has me wheezing like a dying sea lion from beginning to end.

I will spare you my desperate interrogations on whether there is anything you cannot write, because this seems to say that no, you can write anything, and too bad for me.

And I will be back soon for chapter two to enjoy more Rose sass, awkward Hugo and Scorpius bashing!

Author's Response: I had no idea you'd read this before! ♥ This was such a fun story to write, and I really would like to try writing a sequel for it; I've got one all mapped out, but just haven't sat down to do it yet.

I'm so happy you like Rose! She's a hoot and a half, and she's drawn a lot from the way Sarah wrote her in an old story of hers (that is, sadly, since taken down from her page). I kind of suck at writing humor, and so this was a challenge, but I'm very pleased I got you laughing anyway. :)

You are too nice! ♥ I'm sorry this response really sucked, but I'm just really thrilled that this story got some new reviews for the Cup, and that you really did seem to enjoy it. Thank you for reviewing!

I have tons of things I should be doing, but instead, I read all of that in one go and loved it sooo much! You are AMAZING!!!

Your writing is wonderful and I love how we get to know all the characters so well in such a short time. I love Rose. She seems like perfect best friend material. And Scorpius. Gosh. Too Perfect :) I love how you created him to be such an original character; he often seems to be stereotyped as this cold-hearted, terribly big headed boy, but this was really refreshing.

I laughed out loud so many times. The dandruff comment over the announcements near the beginnings had me laughing for, like, 3 minutes. You have a wonderful gift.

Author's Response: Oh, thank you so much! ♥ Coming back to this review made me grin straight from ear to ear, I hope you know -- and I'm quite impressed that you read this in one go, even if it is only ten chapters. That's dedication! :)

Rose and Scorpius and Albus and Pippa and Hugo were all so, so fun to write in this little novella, and I rather miss them. I've got a sequel short story/novella outlined and waiting for me, and I just might tackle that this summer thanks to wonderful reviews such as yours. Everyone needs to write something lighthearted now and again, don't you agree?

SO HAPPY that my writing made you laugh, too! :D I sometimes feel I'm a bit rubbish at humor, and that comment seriously just made my entire day. I can't tell you how big I'm smiling right now!

Thank you so much for reviewing and saying such lovely things, and if you have the time, I'd love to see you return sometime! ♥

I'm glad they ended up together! Did Julian just not like her? Or did he decline her advances because he knew about Scorpius's crush on her? Over all very cute!

Author's Response: Julian really didn't like her, poor girl -- he thinks Rose is a bit odd. Which she is, but it's the right kind of odd for Scorpius, apparently! (I don't think he actually had any idea Scorpius was interested in Rose. Scorpius himself didn't know it 100% until he kissed her outside the library!)

I'm so happy you enjoyed this story! Reading over your reviews has reminded me anew of how much I enjoyed writing it, too. Definitely have to return to these characters soon. Thank you once more for reading and reviewing and saying such lovely things! ♥

OK I was actually laughing out loud at the end of this chapter. My roommates are giving me dirty looks because they are studying for finals and I'm over here giggling. I should also be studying but I'm not. Instead I'm reading your story and I'm very pleased with my decision!

Author's Response: My roommate often gave me odd looks for laughing aloud while reading -- trust me, you're not alone in that respect! ;) I think it's really awesome that it's my story you're laughing at, though! Your reviews have made me want to jump into a sequel for this story even more. REALLY thinking that might be my summer fic project now...

21st April 2013:
I love that her vendetta against him isn't based on Slytherin vs Gryffindor prejudices. It seems slightly more believable that the houses have less animosity towards each other now that the war is over

Author's Response: I think that a lot of the Slytherin/Gryffindor prejudices would have disappeared after Voldemort's downfall -- not all of them, of course, but it might not have been so contentious among the Houses. I'm glad that you seem to agree, too! It gets a bit tiring too, I think. Fresh argument excuses are needed every now and again.

Thank you again for taking the time to leave me all these reviews! Even though it's taken me a while to respond to them, it really does mean a lot to me to have them. :)

This is my first rose/scorpius story and I'm really excited to keep reading! I already like Rose's personality :)

Author's Response: I'm sorry it's taken me so long to respond to these reviews! I've had a bit of an insane few weeks, but I just finished my final exams and am going to answer all of these now. :)

I'm glad you're enjoying the story thus far! Rose/Scorpius is really the only next gen pairing I like reading about on a regular basis. :D This Rose was heavily inspired from a friend's portrayal of her in a different story, but I do miss writing her. She was a lot of fun! I think I might try and write a sequel to this story over the summer, actually.

I really like this story so far! Rose is funny and really unique, I don't think I've ever seen her portrayed like this before :)
I do wish you would've included Scorpius' lesson on flirting, though. I think it would've been really funny and cute. Would you consider adding it somewhere?
Looking forward to the rest you have here! And please update soon :)

Author's Response: I'm very pleased to see that you enjoyed this! I had a lot of fun writing Rose in this story; a lot of her personality was inspired by a Rose in a story from a friend of mine, but I didn't imagine I'd grow so attached to her myself. ;)

A lot of people have asked about Scorpius's flirting lesson, actually. I'm considering writing a one-shot about it! If I do, I'll mention it here, so keep your eyes peeled. You never know!

I love the huge variation in genre - you are so talented as you can swop from such deep emotive one shots to funny light chapters. I am hooked on this story all ready - it had me reading on ravenously from the first sentence. It has a unique title and plot - a very original plot with a fab new perception of rose that I think stands out among all the other sarcastic, all-the-boys-want-her kind of portrayal. It's nice to have a fresh look on the characters and to see them all in a new light. You did this very well I thought.I'd like to see a lot more of this, thank you for this fab fab story!! :)

Author's Response: Well, fancy seeing you over here! :) This definitely isn't like most of the other things on my author's page, but somehow I like that. I do like being versatile, and I think it's good to explore different writing styles and genres, you know?

I really do miss writing this story sometimes, for the precise reasons you pointed out -- its lightheartedness, Rose's personality. :) I'm really glad that you enjoyed it so much, and I'd love to hear your opinions on further chapters, too.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review this for me, and I hope to see you back very soon! ♥ You're awesome!
