7th May 2017:
Amazing story! This is my first time reading a FF with Lucy as the main character and I'm so glad I found this one! Only regret is, 20 chapters is too short for this FF, it ended too soon. Please write a sequel if possible. All the best :)

Just realised I never reviewed this chapter.
It's brilliant as always and a great finish to an amazing story. So funny. I really can't wait to read more of your work.

Author's Response: Thank you so much, that means a lot to me, I was worried the ending felt hurried. I will trying to update some more stories soon!

Review #4, by lunarlumos Elvish Wine and Ghosts

3rd October 2015:
I read the entire fic last night. I am normally unable to focus long enough to read that much, but I Specialise in Murders intrigued me so much. I had no desire to give up reading this until I finished it.
I really love the details about all of the antiques and the runes Lucy set up in her shop. I'm into history, so I really appreciated all of the thought into the history of the antiques and the people that collected them. Seeing such specific detail is difficult to find in stories.
The fic Starving Artists got me into Scorpius/Lucy. I love your characterization of Lucy and Scorpius in I Specialise in Murders. You developed them so well. Scorpius is especially unlike any other fic I've read with him in it. You bridged his own unique personality and his family's personality in a realistic way.
Anyway, I wanted to pop by and let you know how I Specialise in Murders wowed me!

Author's Response: Thank you so much, I am so glad you enjoyed it!
This is the fanfic I have had the most fun writing. I studied archaeology and cultural heritage at university and work in museums now and I really wanted to blend some of my love of historical artefacts, mix it up with magic and put it in the world of Harry Potter. Scorpius' character was actually the most fun to develop, I already had Lucy kind of hashed out because I've been writing a story with her sister Molly (which will be put up some time in the future). I wanted to explore how his family and his fathers past affected him.
I don't think I've read Starving Artists, will have to have a look at it. Hope you have a chance to enjoy some of my other stories!

I truly enjoyed every chapter! Lucy has been a Potter character who has been ignored for the most part and you developed her into a fantastic character. I was blown away by Scorpius. Loved his relationship with the Potter children and really still love Harry. Thank you so much for this perfect story. Please write more!! We need more well-written fan fiction.

Author's Response: Thank you, I'm so glad you enjoyed the characters! Its one of the reasons I love writing next generation is that one can take the characters and really develop them and their relationships with others.

I am working on writing more! I'm working on several of my next generation fan fictions having connecting stories and characters, so in my fic 'Don't Give me Roses' there will be future mentions of Scorpius/Lucy, and I am currently working on a Molly fic and a Albus/Eliza fic, so do keep an eye out for them!

Review #12, by Crescent Moon  Weddings are terribly boring

27th May 2015:
Yes! They caught the murderer and Lucy and Scorpius are together! All is well with the world! Haha. Please say that the next chapter is going to be a happily ever after, and not something else that's going to go wrong now!
(I also have to congratulate you for making me really want them together, as normally I can't stand anything other than the Rose/Scorpius paring. But the way you've developed your characters and progressed their relationship makes me not care at all, which is a huge credit to your writing!)
I just love this story and can't wait to see what happens next.

Author's Response: Lol, the next chapter will indeed be a happily ever after! Though I do have a future Albus/Eliza planned where Scorpius/Lucy will also feature, and then obviously things will go wrong!
I'm really glad you like their relationship and it feels real, While I've loved writing Scorpius, I struggled a little writing Lucy to begin with because she is different from most of the other characters I write. So I'm glad you like her! The whole idea of putting them together was to try to move away from 'normal' pairings like Rose/Scorpius. :)

Oh my gosh you finally updated! Your story is my favorite and I was always so sad to see you hadn't added a new chapter but yah!! Reading this made my day

Author's Response: Thank you so much, and i am terribly sorry about the long wait! Life has been rather hectic these last couple of months, but its reviews like yours that have kept the story nagging at the back of my mind to be finished! One last chapter left.

Review #14, by heartjily4ever Weddings and Grandmothers

20th May 2015:
I'm completely in love with this story and these characters. Scorpius is adorable and fabulous and I'm totally in love with him. Lucy is also all I aspire to be.

If this makes any sense, you write a wedding well. It's not cliche or anything but that could be to do with the humongous plot twist at the end - which I actually wasn't expecting but think is completely great so well done with that.

Oh my the kiss is super cute! I wasn't expecting a kiss now, and not really the most normal situation for a first? kiss but to be fair nothing about their relationship is entirely normal so i guess it fits as well. Lucy talking to Narcissa is great - they seem really similar personalities so have this interesting dynamic between the two that is great with her and Scorpius and their whole relationship-not-relationship thing they have going.

The hands was a great way to identify Clue, especially as it seems like a minor detail but clearly so important. I'm super excited to see where this new information will lead the case and for another great chapter to the story :)

Author's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review, it really inspired me to get my gears together and work on finishing up this story. The last couple of months in my life have been really hectic, so I needed a bit of a reminder that this was important to me too. :)

Please update your story. When I found it it soon became one of my favorites. It's such a unique idea pairing Scorpius with someone other than Rose and the plot of the story is amazing as well. I looked forward to reading your new chapters but it's been awhile. Don't give up on your story it's fantastic.

Author's Response: Thank you so much, I have the next chapter up for validation now, sorry about the huge wait, hope you enjoy it!

Review #16, by Chazzie Weddings and Grandmothers

17th September 2014:
Something very exciting happened at the wedding, yay! I loved how Narcissa and Lucy got on without actually really admitting that they got along. AND THE CARPETS WERE NARCISSA'S?! :') Oh me.
I seem to be finding all the stories currently where a witch has killed her husband. They are really fun to read. (Hmm. Not sure what that says about my mental state, but let's bypass that for now.) I have to say though, your descriptions in this chapter were excellent. A pleasure to read!

Author's Response: Thank you so much. :) I must admit the carpets having originally belonged to Narcissa was a spur of the moment thing. You know when stories kind of run away and become their own entity? This one did that. :P Lol, its always a great story when the witch kills her husband. I wouldn't worry too much about your mental state. Think of all the people who actually sit down and write about people murdering other people. :P So glad you enjoyed it!

16th September 2014:
Oh my gosh! This is AMAZING! I am a HUGE murder/mystery type of gal. I watch all those old shows and stuff, and this makes me excited. Every chapter, keeping me wanting more. Especially more Scorpious/Lucy. ;) I mean, it sucks that those people have to die for my entertainment, but I am okay with that. I cannot wait for an update. Keep up the excellent writing.

Author's Response: Aw, I'm so glad you found my murder mystery then! Its the first time I've attempted one and its been one of the most fun pieces I've ever written, so I must admit I'm sold to writing mysteries now. :) So glad you enjoyed it! Should hopefully not be too long before I have the next chapter up...

Review #18, by Anonymous Weddings and Grandmothers

2nd September 2014:
Omg, so I've just read this entire fic in one sitting and I'm in love, seriously cannot understand how it doesn't have more reviews. Your narrative is literally perfect and the premise of the story is so interesting and refreshing, I love how you've portrayed Scorpius and Narcissa and every paragraph is just perfectly crafted, can't wait to read more :)

Author's Response: Aw thank you so much, what a lovely review! :D So glad you're enjoying it! I'm glad you felt it was refreshing, I think its partly what I love most about it is that its a tad different from most other fanfics. Last couple of chapters should hopefully be up towards the end of September, I am currently battling with the last stages of my thesis at university! :P

So in love with this story!! I adore your scorpius and Lucy together. Update soon!

Author's Response: Aw thank you so much. :) Originally I must admit I've never been much into the Rose/Scorpius pairing so I really wanted to have a go at a completely different pairing and to go for one of the lesser-loved next generation Weasley's. I'm so glad about all the positive feedback about them! :D

Review #20, by Crescent Moon  Weddings and Grandmothers

29th August 2014:
I loved this chapter!
Lucy and Narcissa are brilliant together! Very funny.
But on to the more important issue. Medora Rosier! I can really see it now! What's going to happen now they know. Does she attempt to kill Warrington? And if so how do they stop her?
I really can't wait to read what's going to happen next, great story!

Author's Response: Lol, I'm glad you love Lucy & Narcissa together. I feel like I've been building up to them with Scorpius' comparison of them and I hope this lives up to it. I'm also glad that you can see it now with Medora. Hopefully there will still be a few surprises! :D

Review #21, by Chazzie Files and an Overdose of Tea.

2nd August 2014:
Have I told you recently how brilliant this is? Well it's fantastic. The suspense is really making it difficult to not keep reading the story so far over and over. You had to leave it as a cliffhanger though, didn't you? Sigh. I suppose the next chapter will be up soon enough. I love how you have those sweet little moments like Lucy finding the file and Scorpius' comment about kissing her, or Narcissa and Scorpius having tea, or even Lucy and Molly being so sisterly in the previous chapter, that really sets this story apart. Not all the focus is on the murders and the mystery, although those bits are exciting too.

Author's Response: Aw, thank you so much I am so glad you enjoy it. :) I should have the next chapter up by this weekend, I'm on holiday in Finland at the moment. Thank you also for mentioning specific scenes you like. I try to make my characters as human as possible and I think scenes like that are important in doing so. I would like to think it is first a story about scorpius and Lucy and second a murder mystery. :)

Review #23, by Chazzie Timely Reminders and Clean Teacups.

27th July 2014:
Eek, only two days till the wedding! Maybe I'm jumping to conclusions here, but I get the feeling that something is going to happen whilst they're there. Hmm, hopefully something will give Scorpius a hint about who is targeting the death eaters in Percy's file. Scorpius is really sweet, and it was nice to see the background to his friendship with Milly. It's funny how everyone seems to have learnt the hard way about Rose's matchmaking skills... Or lack thereof! I kinda feel sorry for those she has tried to find partners for. Can't wait to read the next chapter!

Author's Response: Thank you so much for your review. :) The background for Scorpius & Milly was actually kind of spontaneous, but I really like it. Rose' matchmaking skills developed while I was writing a fic about Eliza & Albus (which will be posted in the future). Hope you enjoy the next chapter, I enjoyed writing it. :D

Review #24, by Crescent Moon  Timely Reminders and Clean Teacups.

25th July 2014:
I've just found your story and I'm loving it!
You had me at a murder mystery to be honest (I'm such a sucker when it comes to them. And basing the killings on Cluedo, brilliant! I love that game.) but I love your characters as well. They're really well written and in depth as well as the plot.
I've got no idea who it could be, but that adds the the excitement and anticipation I guess. Though it is killing me not knowing, I was really hoping when I started reading that I'd get to find out who it was by chapter 15. But now I'm here I'm rather glad that I haven't as it means I stay with the story longer, though I am dying here!
If you haven't already managed to tell, I really, really can't wait to see what's going to happen next!

Author's Response: Aw, thank you so so much, your review means so much to me :D I'm glad you love the characters, I have come to adore them while I've been writing the story, especially Scorpius, he's my little baby. :) It should become clear in the next couple of chapters who the murderer is, though I'm trying to write it so it's not too obvious. Lucky for you the next chapter is already in for validation! :D
