House Cup 2014 Review

Hi Kiana! I've actually been meaning to read and review this story for ages, and now that the House Cup is here, I have a great excuse to finally do it!

I really love the direction you've take Rose here - so often she's the golden girl of the Weasley family who gets all the attention, so it's refreshing to see that she's more of a background Weasley, well, for now at least. But gosh, that sure is a lot to live up to, especially with Hugo being a child genius, for goodness sakes! But she's such a relatable character as well - she's so driven and motivated but still never really gets her chance in the spotlight. I also like your character of Molly - I've never really thought of there being a Squib in the Weasley family, but it's actually very realistic and makes her different than all the other Mollys in next-gen stories.

I really love the premise for this story - the magical perfume industry in Egypt? That's so unique! And, of course, since that's hardly the center of the story, I'm so excited to hear about this famed city of Acanthus as well. Plus, I can't wait to see how you portray Scorpius as well - if he's anything like your portrayal of Rose, he'll be another really refreshing and interesting character!

Also, random note - I absolutely love your detail of a middle-aged Ginny with a mild obsession with alcohol and partying with the younger generation. It made me giggle as I was reading and picturing Ginny going absolutely nuts. :P

Anyways, this was such a great first chapter and it makes me so, so excited to keep on reading!

Author's Response: Hi Taylor, aw, thank you so much for all those lovely reviews you left me, they were such a nice surprise so just thank you so much for them! ♥

Yes, Rose is definitely different here to how she usually is but I've already sort of done that interpretation of her in another story so I really wanted to explore a different side to her where she's perhaps the weakest of all of the Weasleys. Aw, Molly! I hate to say it but she doesn't feature in this story much more than that which is a little sad as I did like her little cameo, but I just couldn't fit her in.

Yay, I'm so glad that you're excited for it and I hope it all lives up to your expectations because it definitely was a lot of fun writing about the wizarding world in another culture. And I hope Scorpius lives up to your expectations too after reading that :P

Haha, yes, in my head canon she can never lose her party animal side and will hold onto it forever and ever so I'm glad you liked it too!

Thanks for a great review, and I hope you enjoy the rest of it! :D
