I've read this story a while ago and I have to say it has made quite an impression to me.
(Sorry for not reviewing earlier, btw, I had many things to say but no mood to actually write them:/)
I believe that the way it is written is the most special thing about it. The first person narrative is an excellent fit here; Rose's thoughts are raw and honest and real; and you manage to describe them perfectly.
In addition, I feel like I have to tell you that this is the first story I read in fanfiction that I didn't like because of the RoseScorpius storyline but because of its theme and the way it was written. You have a way to describe emotions that makes your reader able to feel them. I can totally understand Rose in this story, I can see why she's so broken, how she thinks she can't be fixed, and of course how she can't understand she's in love with Scorpius until she loses him.
It's perfect overall- I would post here some of my favorite lines but I'd have to post the entire story.
Amazing- don't change a thing; I've seen you got a negative review but I believe that the story is good the way it is; no corrections or changes needed.

Author's Response: I don't know really how to respond, because I just find it so amazing how you liked my writing. But I'm going to try to make this response understandable, because in my head I have a million jumbled thoughts, none of them making much sense.

When I started writing the one shot, I was going back and forth between making Rose in first person. I like first person, but second person is my favorite to write in, so it was quite the predicament. But then I thought that it should be first person, and she should be speaking to Scorpius, because it could almost be like her telling him the story of how they met and everything she was thinking. For all you know, as she's telling this story, she could be an old grandmother sitting on the porch with old Scorp, and they could just be recounting their tale.

I'm happy you can really understand Rose. I was actually going through a pretty emotional time when I wrote it, and I thought for a while that I was broken just like her. I think its safe to say though, that that happens to everyone (hopefully or else I'm just a nutter).

I hardly think this story is as perfect as you say, but probably all writers think that way, because they've had to deal with their story and the intricacies of writing it and once it's over, they're kind of done with it as well (although could just be me again). It still feels amazing to hear and I really appreciate your review.

I'll try not to change anything in the story, although sometimes I do read certain parts and cringe at the wording, but I'll let it go for now because I don't know how I'd change it anyways :)

Thank you for a lovely lovely review!
