Review #1, by Dani S. xxi. the rest of our lives [or] an epilogue of sorts

12th May 2017:
Oh. My. God.
(Reading in English is one thing, writing is another. Entirely different. There will be many mistakes. The review in portuguese would be far more coherent. But... Here I go).
Hi! Greetings from Bras(z)il.
I don't know if you will read it, but I love this fanfic so much and I HAD to comment here.
The best expression (impossible to translate, by the way) to summarize all my feelings about it is: EU AMEI ISSO AQUI PRA CARALHO!!!

I laughed. I cried. I had a cough crisis. I had my heart broken after Albus broke up with Scorpius (it was cruel). Then I had another cough crisis (pause for a coffe).I realized Pottermore's Sorting Hat hit the nail on the head putting me on Ravenclaw. I fell in love with your characters. The literary references were so wonderful I almost cry.
This is totally my favorite kind of story.And I'll read more of your fanfics whenever college allows.

(I wanted to write more, but my coherence is really atrocious.)


Thank you so much for tfwms!

Abraços, pão de queijo e brigadeiros,

Dani, 19, from Minas Gerais, Brasil.

Kia Ora,
This is going to be a story that I print out and reread ad nauseum, :-)

and I can't help but wonder, have you ever read Beowulf, The Canterbury Tales, C.S. Lewis, Susan Cooper, J.R.R Tolkien...?

Review #4, by I love this. So much v. the tell-all [or] don't hold back now

This was the chapter that made me save your story onto the favorites of my Safari search engine phone.

It's beautiful. It's heartwrenching. And so, so important. I feel like this is a spot I can really always go back to. I absolutely love the adorableness and importance, truly, the weight of this chapter and also general humor and just clear signs of friendship. Thank you for writing this, for all your work, and sharing it- it's honestly wonderful to read.

Lots of love from here :))

Review #9, by ImaRavenclaw i. the plan [or] five nerds face a life of hedonism

29th July 2016:
Hello! So I have decided to read this for the second time around, and since I'm a member this time around, I'm reviewing!

This, I'm pretty sure, is a HPFF classic. This is the first fan fiction I ever read on this site, and was my decision for starting to write REAL HP fan fiction.

This whole story is amazing. But I have to throw out all the past memories and look at this story with a fresh mind.

I absolutely love your OCs, Lester Raine, and Holly Holyoake. My favourite characters from this verse have always been Lester, Holly, and Scorpius. You introduce them with so much conviction, almost as if they were canon. It's powerful!

In the first chapter, you're not going right into sexualities or too much background. I love that about it! You're telling us enough to get us into the story, but leaving enough room for us to guess, make assumptions, and more importantly: Want to continue reading.

I of course know that Albus and Scorpius are dating in this one, and since they are kind of my OTP I love that, but this is only the first chapter so I don't want to focus on that. Another addition before really focusing on this chapter, is that I love Ace Holly, Pan Rose, and of course 'I'm the only straight one!' Lester.

I just love this idea. A fic completely dedicated to a scholarship erected in honour of THE Fred Weasley I.

I love how Holly's pretty clueless when it comes to Professor Umbridge! And I absolutely love the line “Picking on a doddering elderly man seems more cruel than funny.”

Excited to read the next chapter (for the second time)! And hoping you post another story/update soon, because I adore your work!

Yours sincerely,

This is one of my favourite stories on the site. Really. I've never been a big fan of Rose/Scorpius/Albus being Ravenclaws, but you pulled it off brilliantly. Your writing - it's absolutely phenomenal. I'm working on a Next Gen right now - Stardust - which is related to my Marauders story, Moonlight, which is on ao3 under the same username in case you want to check it out okay I'm sorry I'm babbling and stuff but you are astronomically amazing and I am going to read everything you have on this site now. Thank you so much

I finally got through all of the chapters and I loved it. I normally do not read much about the new generations but I loved your quirky renditions of the characters including Holly and Lester. This was well done and timed. It wasn't rushed or too drawn out but had a perfect balance of timing. Congrats on such a good storyline!

Author's Response: thank you so much, i'm glad you enjoyed it and thanks for reading!

Review #13, by Shay_Gryff xxi. the rest of our lives [or] an epilogue of sorts

28th December 2015:
Hello! I started reading this story yesterday, and after pulling an all nighter to finish it, I have to say with no doubt in my mind that it's the best thing I've read in months.

I'm nowhere near as intelligent as the amazing characters that you have brought to life, but I relate to them in so many ways that I never expected. I have my two areas of expertise (kinesthetics and theatre) that I nerd out on and can ramble on and on about - I won't as I'm limited to 5530 more characters - and many of my friends have similar obsessive love over a particular subject. With my friend Sarah it's maths, with my friend Ben it's soil, etc. etc... I digress.

This is a fantastic story, for so many reasons. The portrayal of the various panic/anxiety related illness issues and stress situations over exams and the future are exactly what people in my year are going through right now. I'm in my last year of secondary school and the stress of college and university acceptances has been getting to at least half the graduating class. Vesper's meeting with Rose (obviously not this chapter, but I was speed reading) with her concerns of Potion dependency and the careful balance and support systems built to assist in the event of a panic attack was an eye-opener that I think was just the correct amount of oversight the five of them needed to balance out their "voluptuous ego".

The story was the perfect balance of humor, romance (you have broken my track record of Rose/Scorpious being the go-to ship), self-discovery (trying on labels until you find the right one is basically what I did), and insane intelligence. I absolutely love it, great job, and all that jazz.

I realize this review has no constructive criticisms, which goes against my usual policy of not leaving a review without some form of CCs, but I feel that anything I tell you would be thing you either A) already know or B) I don't have enough knowledge on to give any input.

Keep up the fantastic work! I look forward to reading more of your stories.


PS - 'Exit, followed by a bear' is my favourite stage direction ever written and I love that you used it.

Review #16, by Anna xxi. the rest of our lives [or] an epilogue of sorts

28th October 2015:
Wow. In the last year I've probably read this fic 9-10 times. It's my go-to, feel good story, probably because of the huge amount of love in every word. Not only from you as an amazing author, but between the characters too, they're so close it makes me jealous that i can't live with my closest friends 10 months a year. I've read the sequel too but god, this fic hit me so hard in the feels I just had to review.

It represents all the things I love: strong independent female characters, Characters who deeply understand the craving for knowledge and teaching an learning, LGBTQ representation done so beautifully, tight knit friendship among both genders with TOTAL understanding of each other, and an amazing array of iconic literary references. I've leant so much just from reading up on all the ancient texts etc referenced so casually in this fic, you've inspire me so much to look deeper into Latin and the Iliad and learn more about poetry etc.
I can't describe how much I love this fic in a review, but god, you should be so proud. Xxxx keep writing, I'd ABSOLUTELY LOVE maybe an outtakes story with some of the younger years, it's a shame we never saw them as kids.

:):):):) lots of love and THANKYOU for writing.

Might I just say that as a Classical Greek minor I appreciate the classics in this so much. I should be studying for medical school (second year! Woo!) but I'm reading this instead. It's friday.

Author's Response: well we're even because i wrote this entire story when i should have been studying (Classics major, holla) but the references totally count as studying, right? that's why they're there. procrastination justification.

I just read the whole ff and I'm completely blown away, I love it! You made me laugh, cry and ponder and I'm definitely hoping for a sequel :)
This is the first next gen ff I have read and I love the characters so much, and the whole story! Your writing style is perfect, no mistakes that I've noticed so it was an incredibly pleasant read, I think I have just noted two flaws in logic: in the UK in the winter the sun doesn't rise till like 8:30 or something (not at 5) and I think using the word mate instead of dude would sound better, as I haven't really met anyone over here who says dude (but then again, by 2024 that might have changed!)
Thank you so much for writing it, I hope you'll write many more stories!

I'm now sitting here sobbing asking how I could have reached the end of this story. Can I just express how much I appreciate the amount of effort you put in this. I was whipping out the dictionary this whole book and learned loads. You really captured thd spirit and personality of queer Ravenclaws. You are honestly an inspirational writer. I would actual love to get to know you as well because you just seem like such an intresting person. I also have to thank you for recgnizing the pans (pansexuals, but you knew that) because we seem to get lost in the dust.

In conclusion here is my actual review;

"The Fred Weasley memorial scholarship" is the most intriguing fanfiction I've ever read. Between the stress of finishing school and the pranking of 5 studious wizards this book really invited the reader into the 7th year at Hogwarts. Never again will I find a book as captivating as this one was.

Keep writing love,

Review #25, by maskedmuggle xxi. the rest of our lives [or] an epilogue of sorts

24th June 2015:
Hey hey hey!

So I started reading this ages ago while it was still a WIP (ok I just checked and I started this more than a year ago..) and then life got in the way and I never got around to finishing it until now. Seriously, this was such a brilliant fic and I so thoroughly enjoyed reading it! I found myself so hooked on the fic I pretty much read the whole thing from front to end nonstop. There were so many moments in this fic where the dialogue was just perfect, and where I found myself grinning at all the pranks.

The huge shocker was the Al/Scorpius argument - I couldn't believe you did that! I did find the reason for their breakup so sudden and out of the blue - I didn't really find that there was enough of a catalyst for Al suddenly thinking that he wasn't good enough, even though you did try to build it up a few careless comments here and there from his friends that may have hurt him more than anyone realised. I was so angry at Scorpius especially for the way he dealt with everything, but I am very glad that they were both happy together in the end. I love them together, especially the way you've written their relationship here - it's just so sweet and adorable and just ♥ ♥ ♥! I also notice you've got a few other fics from this universe, especially some Al/Scorpius so I am definitely going to be checking those out when I get the chance!

The Alfie/Rose thing was such a shocker too! It was a pleasant surprise though, and the interaction between Rose and Alfie added another intriguing subplot into the fic - and I did like seeing them "together". I don't have any personal experience with LGBTQA at all, but it was really interesting to see this feature in this fic. Also, your characterisations were so great here! I really liked how Ravenclaw you made all of them, and how they were all such high achievers - everything, the interactions, the personalities, was just very realistic. All in all, you're a terrific writer (congrats for your dobby! which is so very well deserved) and once my last exam is over, I definitely intend to read more of your stories, especially the sequel to this!

~ Charlotte
