Ch. # Chapter Title Word Count Reviews Read
1 Prologue: The Test

I start to hyperventilate and think that I am most certainly about to die. Maybe I’ll come back as a ghost, like Moaning Myrtle. I could haunt this sixth year Gryffindor girls’ bathroom – Rose Weasley, the pregnant ghost of Gryffindor house. That has a nice ring to it.

2 Red Rose

I can still remember how good he was – that’s saying something, because I can barely remember what age I am most of the time.
 

2764 274
3 Christmas Complications

Great – the Potters are coming. Which means Scorpius Malfoy's coming. Maybe I can hide out in the attic until they leave.

2384 193
4 I'm Not You

I feel sick – my parents are sex addicts. 

“It only takes one time before you’re hooked,” says Mum. 

Yep, definitely going to throw up again.

5 A Blue Christmas and a Random New Year

Maybe I should just go buy some cats and spend New Years with them.

4115 241
6 Going Home

Maybe Voldemort just didn’t like tea.

7 Letters From My Godmother

“Well, the thing is…” I start, “I’m sort of…with child.” 

4449 171
8 Gimme A Break!

Of all the Owleries in all the schools in all the world, he has to walk into this one… 

5364 216
9 Parents Dispute

Yes, I consider a pregnant sixteen year old who talks to herself in her head and considers spending her life (or afterlife) haunting toilets as perfectly normal, thank you very much.
 

3863 248
10 Chocolate, Cupboards and Memories

What the hell am I even talking about?

3450 174
11 It Can't Get Any Worse...Right?

“Thanks for not shunning me from your life,” I say, “and for not killing Malfoy and ending up in Azkaban and starting a big chain-reaction of self-destruction throughout our entire family.”

4189 249
12 Learning to Live Again

This place is damp, dark and it has a really funny smell…and not in a good way. I’m pretty sure something died here. 

4430 191
13 The Cherub's Wrath

I don’t think he gets that the dark mark is a sign of all the suffering our parents and grandparents went through, but more of a fashion statement. Then again, James went to the last Halloween party dressed as Voldemort.
 

6491 263
14 Ask Your Mother

Great, the ‘ask your mother’ excuse. Why do fathers always think that that will get them out of everything?
 

4663 187
15 My Father's Daughter

“Malfoys and Weasleys will never be friends, no matter how much your generation think they will.”

4062 198
16 Secrets and Cigarettes

"You and Malfoy can pretend for as long as you like that you’re ‘just friends’, but no matter what you’ll never change the fact that you’re pregnant with his child, Rosie."
 

3936 175
17 Boys Don't Cry

“I have not been crying,” he says stubbornly, “Boys don’t cry.” 

4808 196
18 A Long Night

What's an odd stalk here and there between friends?

4776 193
19 An April Fools Prank Gone Horribly, Horribly Wrong

“Fred!” James yells, and Fred comes stumbling down the stairs from the dormitories, “How is it that you have the Prank Mastermind for a father and you’re still crap at this?”
 

4988 135
20 The Hospital Wing

I find myself stressed once more and shouting at the matron.

4152 82
21 Preparations

He frowns back. So I continue frowning. And it’s just one big frown-a-thon.

22 Happy Birthday, Rosie

Okay, I can see how we’re a pretty messed up family, but being arrested and interrogated and suspected of being terrorists really isn’t that typical for us.

4056 89
23 A Day To Remember

There are some sentences that, when you’re around six or seven, you think you’ll never have to say, and believe me, that’s one of them.
 

5573 104
24 The Perfect Idiot

Rose doesn't do romance.
 

3522 87
25 Blissfully Perfect? Not Likely.

Cynical, sarcastic, pessimistic Rose Weasley is no more – I officially love life.

4290 105
26 We Don't Do Things The Normal Way

“Yeah, but we got pregnant before liking each other,” Scorpius reminds me, “We don’t exactly do things the normal way.”

3502 220
27 The Hitch In The Plan

Laura Phelps does sarcasm. You learn something new every day. 

3568 193
28 No More Mister Niceton

I wish I had the camera.

4230 171
29 Becoming Parents

“I think we momentarily fulfilled every child’s worst nightmare and became our parents,” I say, “Promise me we’ll never do that again.”

2266 195
30 Desperate Times

Then again, if I wasn’t pregnant, none of this would be happening.

3771 163
31 Victory and Defeat

I’m so happy to hear this I could do the Hippogriff step. The Hippogriff-step is quite a complex dance move that should only be attempted by very drunk grandmothers on a Friday night – it involves a lot of flapping your arms and bobbing your head, while running around in a circle.

5802 216
32 The End Of An Era

I have to admit that despite the fact that I was twice humiliated in front of the school, my parents broke up and reconciled, I lost my grandfather, I got pregnant and I broke up with Scorpius Malfoy, this year had to be the best one I’ve had. And tomorrow, it’s all over. 

3991 187
33 A Spot Of Discomfort

"Rose, when I was eighteen years old, I was tortured under the Cruciatus Curse by Bellatrix Lestrange, and I can safely say that it was like a day in a beauty spa compared to labour!"

4846 207
34 Blood, Sweat and Tears

Good God men really are useless in crisis situations.

4750 319
35 Call Me Mum

"In case I haven’t introduced myself already – Rose Weasley. But you can call me Mum."
