no that is just WRONG
oh my god
there are no words
you are amazing yet evil
when is the next one coming up?Author's Response: I update every two weeks so the next one should be around next weekend, maybe a few days earlier depending on the validation wait.
I am evil but the next chapter will have a lot of background information plus some Scor and Rose things. Report Review
I feel bad that I haven't been reviewing when you have been updating promptly like you said you would (I am so happy that you do)! With that said, I loved this chapter. It was so full of emotion, so bittersweet. On one hand, I felt sad for them, but on the other hand I was so happy that Rose is starting to break down her defenses and Scorpius admitted his feelings to her. It was a perfect little moment for them. You always mention how observant Carla is, was she so caught up in her planning that she missed Scorpius's disappointment and Rose's uneasiness? I think Matt would have picked up on that?
The only male character I can think of from Fighting Temptations is Ben, but he did date Rose for quite awhile.
Well, I cannot wait for the next update! Excited to see Rose go back home to London and learn the reason why Scrorpius is in New York.
And also, I'm glad Albus seems more supportive of Scropius, and Rose seems to be honest enough with him about her relationship with Scorpius, so maybe that could help her push through.
Haha this was a lot at once!Author's Response: Oh don't feel bad, I'm not going to lie there is a goal number of reviews that I HOPE to achive before the next update, but reaching that goal, or not , has never actually affected me updating every two weeks. Either I get them and I'm happy or I don't and I hope for better luck on the next chapter. Reguarldess I made a promise to update around every two weeks, which I plan to keep. Not that i'm saying don't review because I absolutly LOVE reading them and seeing what people thought of the chapter and what they think is going to happens next.
Anyways now onto the important subject which is the story. Carla is very observant but two things one she noticed Scorpius and Rose not talking for two weeks and two Rex is her brother which I breifly mentioned somewhere in the chapter revelation. Not that I am saying that she would have put her own family's happiness infront of Rose's because she absolutly didn't but she did have a little bit more insight into Rex's life and his desiers so to speak. I will go ahead and tell you that Carla never really knows what is truly going on with Rose and Rex, their relationship (if you can call it that) was always complicated... alot of it because of Scorpius which you will see, and also the way they ended thingswas very unusual and left a lot implied and Carla knows that. The way she sees it is that he was coming to New York, on work, anyways reguardless why not have him surprise her. Trust me most of that information will be revealed in the next ch.
As for Scorpius you will get a little taste as to what could have made him come to New York the reason isn't going to come out but more like the beggining of that reason, thats the only way I can think to describe it. It's going to be a couple of chapters before they go back to london i'm thinking around ch. 12 or 13.
As for Albus i'm only going to say he he. He is much more supportive. Partially because of him being gay and actually acting upon it which is giving him a slightly more open perspective. Also seeing as how Albus and Scorpius both worked in the Auror department in London there is a very good chance that their paths may have crossed a couple of times.
Anyways i feel like just threw a ton of information at you. If none of the review makes sense a lot will be cleared up in the next chapter. Thank you so much for reviewing. Report Review
OMG! I must know what happe a next. I just want Rose and Scorpius to be happy together again.Author's Response: They will, i'm not going to say soon because my deffinetion of soon but it wont be long, My goal is knid of like Fighting Temptation which is before chapter twenty but the more I continue to map out the story I am hoping that I can move it up a little bit. But We'll see.
Thank you so much for reviewing and reading. Report Review
Oh my god. I'm tearing up. Nice job with the action scene, except I was a bit confused with some of the grammar and spelling. But not enough to completely distract from the rest of your writing.Author's Response: Well thats good, i'm trying to work on grammar and i'm glad that you liked the scene over all. Thank you so much for the review. Report Review
Oh my goodness. I was practically dying from happiness in this chapter. Thank you so much for being a fantastic study break while I was studying for my AP.Author's Response: No problem I understand studying for AP. Thank you so much for the review so glad that you like the chapter. Report Review
Oh my goodness. I was practically dying from happiness in this chapter. Thank you so much for being a fantastic study break while I was studying for my AP.Author's Response: Once again no problem. Report Review
That was such a great chapter, I'm really hoping that Scorpius doesn't give up on her just because Rex is back. Also, I can totally see Rose slapping Rex for kissing her like that, Rose hates supprises and although she must like Rex, it just seemed a bit possesive. I really like Scorpius and I hate that he is getting hurt and Rose was so close to giving in to him! Also, due to the fact that this is a party and there will be drink I was kinda hoping to see a bit of drunk Rose where her defences aren't up so high hahaa :P
Also, I loved the line “Isn’t that the cauldron calling the cat black?”, I thourght that wasreally great hahaa.
I'm sooo glad that Matt and Rose are finally friends again, it's been too long with them being apart and now that Matt knows a bit more about Roses past I'm hoping that he figures out what is going on between Rose and Scorp and will push Rose in the right direction!
Can't wait for the next chapter, going back to London, I'm so glad that Albus is finally back in the chapters, I've definately missed him as much as Rose has hahaa, I wasn't that supprised that he was gay but I can't think of who it might be, i'm curious!
SoraAuthor's Response: I worked hard on that line so i'm glad that you liked it. Scorpius isn't going to give up on Rose and also Scorpius isn't exactly innocent in all of this he has been keeping secrets to one of which Rose reveals in the next chapter.
As for a drunk Rose, I hope this makes since. I have an idea of what Rose would be like drunk and it is kinda fun the only thing is that she is one of those people that is so guarded that I don't think that she would allow herself to get to the point of drunk. but never say never. Now you will get to see a drunk scorpius but thats not for a while.
Rex is slightly possesive but his actions were not entierly unjustfied and you will see why in the next chapter, even though yes Rose wasn't to thrilled that he kissed her like that in public but thats just Rose. Yes MAtt and Rose are friends again and Albus is back for a little while at least. Who he is with will shock a lot of people but that's not coming out for a while because his plot line isn't really a main focus that much.
ANyways thank you so much for reviewing and i'm working on the next chapter now. Got a little side tracked with another Scor/Rose story that I decided to do... because i'm nuts. lol
But seriously once that first chapter gets published then i'm gonna try and post chapter 10 a little bit sooner. Report Review
Superb, but please Albus being Gay ? Please NoAuthor's Response: To be honest I could have gone anyway with Albus, I noticed when writing the chapter that if I made him gay it would kind of force him to see things in a different light which would open the door for him to get to know Scorpius instead of being judgemeantal. So after thinking about and rereading several chapters of Fighting Temptation I noticed that I never really went into Albus' love life at all so it wouldn't be completly random if he were to be gay, shocking and surprising yes, but not random. With that being said Albus isn't as big of a character in Confronting that he was in Fighting so you really arn't going to see that much of him. I will say that him coming out to his parents isn't a scene that I have planned on writing because that seems like something that he would do privately and then just mention it to Rose, but as with all of my reviews that may change just because sometimes I have ideas that I orignally had no desier to add in but I do.
Anyways the point that I am trying to make is that Albus being gay isn't a main plot line that I am going to add in or focus to much on. It is simply there as an acceptance factor that I might potentially be able to use as a doorway for the family to be more accepting of Scorpius. Once again hat may not happen because i have several ideas about the family and their reactions about Rose and Scorpius and how they may or may not accept it. But if I wanted to use the gay factor I now have the backstory that would allow me too.
I hope that that makes sense and that it helps you understand a little bit better, my biggest fear about this chapter was offending people and thats partially why it took me so long to write becaus eI kept going back and forth but eventually I had to make an excutive decision and hope people went with it. Thank you so much for reading and for the review glad that you liked the rest. Report Review
Rex? who is he? boyfriend? Don't do this to scorp !! I cannot imagine how much pain u gave to him ! I mean to say ur rose !! Waiting for next chpter ! Please do something for him !Author's Response: Rex was mentioned briefly two chapters ago. You will get an entier back story in the next chapter and I will say that Scorpius actually plays a huge role in why Rose was with rex to begin with. I will also say that Rex wasn't exactly her boyfriend. Needless to say you will also be getting a little hint as to why Scorpius might have transfered. NExt chapter will be up in two weeks. Thank you for the review. Report Review
OMG what! This can't be happening! Scorpius was meant to kiss Rose!! :'(Author's Response: I love being evil. Thank you so much for the review and for reading. Report Review
I can't wait for you next update! This was completely amazing! Your action scenes are descriptive, and exciting and a lot better than you give them credit for. I really want more Rose and Scorpious interaction! The more the better, even if this time there was plenty. What can I say? I'm a little greedy when it comes to stories :DAuthor's Response: Jezz the next chapter is driving me slightly nuts. It's having some serious isuess on getting finished mainly me, but I WILL without a doubt finish it today I have been trying to do that all weekend and it hasn't gotten done. Anyways It is today if my life depends on it. Not sure if it will have all the Scorpius and Rose interaction but something will happen. (i'm evil). Anyways thank you for the review and I will have an update later this week. I swear. Report Review
i think that the action scene was pretty good! it wasnt to long but it was detailed enough, so that we knew what was going on. I would have liked a little more action or suspense though with Rose and the battle but it was still good, just a little more suspense would be great! on another note, i loved the moment they had in the hospital!! it was so cute i just really wish that Rose would allow herself to be with Scorpius and to stop fighting it!! hahaAuthor's Response: Thank you so much I will work on the suspense. Action isn't my strong suit and I am really trying to work on it so thank you for the suggestion it really helps. As for Rose she has some issues but she will work them out eventually. Thank you so much for the review and for the suggestion. I will have an update soon hoping to post my next chapter tonight so it will robably be vaidated by this week. Report Review
Epic! More as soon as possible!Author's Response: Hoping to put up more soon. I have half of the next chapter finished and im planing to finish it either today or tomorrow and then I'll post. Had to go out of town which really messed up my updating schedule. Thank you so much for the review. Report Review
Yay! I checked back for new chapters for the first time in months and there were 4!! FOUR!! I'm so excited to read them all! Great job on this chapter as always :)
P.S. I've changed my "name" to pastenchantments because whinygrl11 sounds...well, whiny.Author's Response: Yeah I try to update every two weeks, and so far I have kept with that goal so yay. AS for the name change I never thought that you were whiny to begin with although I do love the new name, pastenchanments sounds very magical.
Thank you so much for the review and I hope you like the 4 chapters. Report Review
This was great! I loved the action bits you had no reason to worry about them, they're perfect, not too over dramatic but not boring either, just right :)
I loved this chapter, we finally got a glimps to how hard it is for Rose and scorpius to be so close to one another, it's absoloutly heart breaking. I'm glad that Scorp went against her in the cave and didn't stop what he wanted to do just because she wanted him to and i'm glad that Rose finally let go, even if it was only for a few seconds i'm really glad that she did.
Anyway, the perfect chapter :)
SoraaAuthor's Response: I guess I was worried because I'm not used to writing alot of action so was sure how it would turn out, but everyone that has reviewed said it has been good so I suppose I had nothing to worry about. I knew that I was going to have to show something between Rose and Scorpius that really deomnstrated how they feel for each other. If anything atleast it showed Rose's problems, I think the way that Scorpius feels has been pretty out there for a while, but Rose she is doing whatever she can to keep it together. As for Scorpius doing his own thing I really wanted to show how good of an auror he is because in the last chapter Rose was pretty much leading things and well he is not about to put up with that.
Thank as always for the review I am so happy to read them. Until the next chapter. Report Review
You are doing great on writing that action stuff. I loved that little moment in the end. I want them to end up together. Please! let get them together. But I guess it will be harder for you to write what with all their history together. I am pining for more. Waiting for your next update. :)Author's Response: Yeah the little moment at then end I hope gave a lot of people some hope for them. I'm not sure if it will be hard to write with their history there is just certain things I have to watch out for so that I dont spoil any plot things. Thank you so much for the review so glad that you are enjoying it. Report Review
Great scene at the end of this update! More exciting than the battle. Awesome update!Author's Response: Thank you so much. I figured that it would be more exciting. So glad you liked it I'll have an update soon and thanks for the review. Report Review
Omg, yay, i loved that last moment! It was like the old Scorpius and Rose were back!! I really they can work things out from here because they obviously love each other! They just need to be together!!
Update soon!!Author's Response: They will work things out eventually. Rose still has some issues that she needs to work through, running being one of them. Anyways thank you so much for the review and I am so happy that you are enjoying the story. Not sure when I am going to update yet because this chapter got posted so much earlier than I anticipated almost a week earlier so two weeks from that date would be next week although most people that are on my current schedule will be expecting it two weeks from today. Anyways thank you for the review. Report Review
Definitely both r very very strong to regain their control !! i am happy with their progress. At least they let each other know about their feeling .
Good Action !! does rose's family know abt her new partner, scorp ?? when they wil know ?? wil be interesting to see their reaction !!Author's Response: To be honest I have not dcided yet if Rose's family knows. A part of me wants to say no because I think Ron would have had a field day the second that he found out, but on the other hand I can't help but feel that Ron would also check up on Rose so he would. More than likely I am going to go with No they don't know but I will actually be mentioning it in the story pretty soon, what I say in reviews is susceptible to change. I have a lot of the reactions already planned out so I'm excited for it. Anyways thank you so much for the review and for reading, should have an update in a couple of weeks maybe sooner.

I know how you feel, this was a rough semester for me too. Couldn't wait for it to be over.
I think this was your best chapter yet that you wrote. Reading your words, I could feel the love they have for each other and the anguish of working so closely together. After the moment they shared, I think Scorpius realizes that Rose still loves him more than she lets on. Now, what to do?Author's Response: This semester wasn't near as bad as last semester which was the deffinition of a living hell, but it was long.
Anyways I am trying to make it clear that they do still love each other and that for years they have been "coping" with it. Although they both handle it very different Scorpius has kind of spent his life working around his feelings of Rose but not entierly forgetting/hiding them, while Rose tends to burry them far away and not feel at all. I personally felt that the moment was a way to show their struggles with the situation, so i'm happy that it came across that way. I also wanted to show a little bit of Rose's side and that deep down she knows that she is meant to be with him. I wanted the scene to be more of about two people who are in love and unable to be together. As for Scorpius even though he was upset that she ran, that little moment did give him hope and he knows that he isn't the only one feeling that way.
Thank you so much for the review. I should be back in a couple of weeks, maybe sooner. I am so glad that you think it is the best chapter so far. Report Review
Lucky you, I still have 2 weeks of school left! :/ I loved this chapter!! You wrote action very well, I don't think you have too much of a problem with it whatsoever! The way you had them interacting with each other was perfect. I was nearly begging for them to lose control and just kiss each other! But I like how you made them pull away and not give in. It shows how much strength and self control you gave them as characters. So much happened in this chapter that didn't really happen. Phenomenal job! :) xxAuthor's Response: Thanks I was really worried how the action would play out, I do think that there is room for improvement, but I am glad that it wasn't bad. Yeah I couldn't make them lose control where's the fun in that? lol. Yeah I felt that for Rose especially she would pull away because she is not ready, I think Scorpius would have been more willing to continue the moment. As for the chapter itself I am so glad that you liked it and that you felt that it said so much that is exactly what I was aiming for. Thank you so much reading and reviewing. Report Review
