Review #1, by UnluckyStar57 Think Of Me.

6th January 2014:
Hi! I'm back to review this chapter for the Eleventh Day of the Twelve Days of Reviewing! :D

So, Rose has grown up and the Phantom is still with her. Is he really just inside her head? If so, how did he get there? Is he some creepy guy using Legilimency on her?! He's so mysterious! I want answers about him!!

Awww, Scorpius as Raoul--that's so cute! I definitely understand why you called this chapter "Think of Me." It fits the way they met, and since they were lovers at Hogwarts, it makes a lot of sense. His mother runs a theatre, how perfect! That means that Rose will soon get her chance to shine onstage. I hope the next chapter comes out soon!

I really sympathize with Rose. I also am clumsy and I don't do parties and "the night scene." She's my favorite so far!


Author's Response: Think Of Me is also the first real song on the soundtrack (:

I don't want to give away too much about the Phantom, though I don't think anyone will really guess the real story behind him because the backstory is strange!

Thank you so much!

Review #2, by UnluckyStar57 Overture.

30th December 2013:
Hello! I'm here for the Fifth Day of the Twelve Days of Reviewing at the forums. :)

I think that the concept for this story is really awesome!!! I love The Phantom of the Opera (both the musical AND the book), and I applaud you for taking the idea and putting it into the Wizarding World--along with adapting it to be about ballet instead of opera!

I think Rose seems like a neat character. She aspires to have a Muggle career as a performing artist-a ballerina-but her father wants her to be a Quidditch player (of course). I'm glad that Hermione believes in her and wants to encourage her to chase her dream, rather than telling her to study her schoolbooks or something. Too often, I see a Rose who feels that she must live up to Hermione's bookish standards, and this Rose doesn't seem to have that sort of pressure. Awesome!

A quick question: Will this be a Scorose story, or will there be a ship at all? I know that Rose/Scorpius is a very popular ship, and I could see this story going in that direction, but if it doesn't, I think that would be cool, too! After all, the Phantom of the Opera was much older than Christine, but he loved her--and then she had Raoul. So maybe Scorpius will be Rose's Raoul? I am curious to find out if he will come into this story at all, and what role he will play!

Happy Holidays!


Author's Response: You nailed it! Scorpius is Raoul, but with some differences! Their relationship will be a bit different because I do want to hit on a little Scorose more than the original did with Christine/Raoul.

I'm so glad someone is as excited about the concept as much as I am! I love The Phantom of the Opera!

I've never written anything with Rose before and I'm trying to develop her character as I go, so I do hope it will be a little different than most Rose characters.

Thank you so much for this review, truly made my day. You're the best!

Happy Holidays.
