Jane!! :) It's about time I got around to reading this delightful fic!
Super love the way you've set it up. Rose isn't the typical studious type, which is lots more fun! She's already set herself up as a witty, fun character and I can't wait to see more of her. And Scorp-o! OF COURSE I AM SO EXCITED TO READ MORE SCORP-O. SCORP-O IS DA BEST. I am envisioning many a ust moments between him and Rose.
I'll be reviewing every chapter of this.. but don't expect good reviews. I'm simply incapable of them these days. So you'll just get lots of SCORPIUS IS HOT AND YEAH reviews.Author's Response: What's so good about studious Rose? I don't think she'd be very fun to write at all if she were more like her mother. :) SCORP-O REALLY IS DA BEST. He is mah fave person to write in this fic, no lieee. (Which you will see later on. Which means you have seen it, but reviews sort of enact a mini-time warp.)
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR REVIEWING THIS FOR ME. I appreciate it lots and lots and it really made me happy to see you had stopped by. LURVE YOU! ♥ ♥ ♥
This limerick is for Erica, who, I am told Report Review
wow i totally just did this thing where like i finished reading this like ten minutes ago and totally thought i already left a review and just now realized that i didn't. WHOOPS.

ILY DEAR! POST MOAR SOON. Report Review
OH DAVID. YOU OBLIVIOUS MAN, YOU.
I love me some David. I like his friend also! Let's see more Ewan in the future. Also I'm excited to get to some secretary!Frankie bits. Because like, I'm hoping people will begin to get suspicious. Like, wow that is one girly looking guy. Hey! Maybe it's a girl!
Eee! I lurvee David/Frankie interactions. They're so precious together. Even if one of them doesn't know the actual gender of the other one. STILL PRECIOUS. Report Review
Can you imagine being Ambrosia during this whole exchange? Like just chillin' at your house table, you know, eating some food and hanging out all casual and then bam, this punk kid in a chipmunk suit that obsessively loves you is fighting the kid with the perfect hair and cashmere sweater. Of course, being Ambrosia, she probably just ignored the whole thing and continued on eating (assuming she actually does eat. she may not be human, I'm not sure) while everyone else watched in horror.
Anyway. I suggest you update soon, missy. I shall bug you about it. You know I will.

I've actually read this before. Technically. At least parts of it. Way back when during one of those many conversations that involved googledocs and squeeing and bacon and Scorpius in cashmere jumpers. What am I saying? This is every conversation we have. So anyway. It's just as fab as I remember.
I can't really decide what ships I like in this story. I mean, I'm not a huge Delilah/Al fan as of yet. I do love Scorpius/cashmere, though. They're pretty much the greatest thing to happen since Al/bacon.
ERICA. Report Review
SO MANY FEELS.
Not as many feels as the end of Drarry, but like, these are more angry feels. Because DOMINIQUE YOU HORRIBLE GIRL AND SCORPIUS IS MAYBE EVEN MORE DESPICABLE AND LIKE ROSE YOU POOR THING I AM SO SORRY YOU DID NOT DESERVE THIS.
(on another note, honestly why haven't i read this? it's so right up my alley. second person narration, involves the characters of scorp, dom, and rose. srsly it's like this and my summer rain are our soul sister fics except mine's the other way around and yadda yadda yadda other things)
So anyway. You write so amazingly, Annie. Honestly. I've thought so ever since I read Hestia all that time ago. And this is absolutely no different. It's really fab! You capture the emotions so greatly and you characterized in a way that made the whole story believable.
And like, I dislike Dom a lot right now. But I do think I dislike Scorpius a lot more. He's just let himself be manipulated for so long and it's like GROW A BACKBONE, BRO. GET AT IT.
Great work love!

I THINK I MADE MENTAL NOTES TO MYSELF TO MENTION THINGS FROM THE BEGINNING OF THE CHAPTER BUT I CAN'T REMEMBER THEM NOW BECAUSE OH MY /GOD/ ANNIE WHY WHY WHY. ALL THE FEELS. ALL OF THEM. I HAVE SO MANY FEELS RIGHT NOW I CAN'T EVEN LIKE FUNCTION. SO MANY FEELS THAT THE PART OF YOUR AUTHOR'S NOTE ABOUT FRIENDSHIP WAS LIKE GIVING ME MORE FEELS AND MADE ME REALLY HAPPY AND I WAS LIKE OMG I AM FRIENDS WITH ANNIE YAY I LOVE HER BUT ALSO YOU ARE CRUEL.

oh i remember the draco tattoo discussion, methinks. i rather like the one you decided on. classy quotes are classy. and also eeek! because harry and draco are like, crazy cute. like out of control adorable together. but there's still all this mystery and i want to know what's going onnn! which i will hopefully find out in the next/last chapter. off to read~

DUDE YOU'RE CONFUSING ME. you've really got me sucked into this story. and only two chapters left to go! which is sad, but i'm excited to know the ending. and yes, i've given up on the shift key. it's not been my friend today. anyway. fab writing, fab story, and fab cashmere sweaters on draco. to answer a question in your a/n, i don't know if harry is really being delusional at all. i mean, in a world of magic, it's a bit difficult to tell fiction from reality. Report Review
Harry and Draco are so domestic it kills me. Like srsly. I just have all these feels and I'm like what do I even do with all these feels there are so many of them? YOUR WRITING ALWAYS GETS TO ME MY DEAR ANNIE. Also that made me crave sesame chicken. Which is inconvenient since it's 1:15 am.
Boo your Drarry is so cute.
ERICA. Report Review
I realized as I was reading this chapter that I had read part of it before! Which isn't all that important, but yeah. The part where Draco was attempting to take care of Harry.
Anyway. Another lovely chapter from the lovely Annie. I really love the Drarry relationship in this. Like, the way you write it. It's so effortless, which is an impressive feat indeed when you consider the subject matter.
And I'm glad you're not crying in your bathroom listening to Dashboard Confessional, as your a/n suggests you might be doing without yo frandz. I much prefer the kpop love you have.
ERICA. Report Review
Things that make me sad: James and Harry not having a great relationship. That was heartbreaking. All the feels for Harry while he was crying at home afterwards.
Things that make me happy: "If you try to dump me for my own good, I promise I'll take all your cashmere jumpers and shrink them in the wash." DYING. SO HAPPY THAT IS A THING THAT IS IN THIS STORY.
ily annie. this is fab.

Surprise, I am reading this now! /finally/. I've been meaning to for ages, of course. You know how much I fangirl over your writing and this story has already got me hooked! You always come up with such interesting plot lines I'm really not sure how you do it but ily for it. (:
These reviews will be horrible by the way. I'm trying to be quiet since roomie is sleeping and typing isn't very conducive to that. Not that my reviews would be that fab anyway haha.
ERICA. Report Review
Baww, it was a happy ending. I mean, full of crazy drama and lying and deception and Draco almost marrying that Cathy girl, but you know, happy in the very last sentences. I'm glad you decided to satisfy the Drastoria shippers. I mean, who would ship Draco/Cathy really? Draco and Cathy doesn't have near the ring to it that Draco and Astoria does, amirite?
Anyway, this was a fantastic story, Julia! I super loved it. It's made me want to read more Drastoria. I do rather like the two of them together. I shall have to look into this.
Great work, dear!
ERICA.Author's Response: ERICA, YOU ARE A CHAMP OF THE FIRST WATER. this truly is a lovely set of lovelies to log into HPFF and find.
heee. it wasn't going to be a happy ending but i caved in. drastoria is my otp and i couldn't really leave it hanging. but i'm a fan of the unhappy ending.
drathy vs drastoria.
thank you oroco! your reviews are rarr wonderful~ ♥ ♥ ♥ Report Review
OMG JULIA I CANNOT BELIEVE YOU DID THIS.
Actually, I can. Pretty awesome little plot point you got there. I don't mean awesome in a good way. I mean it in like an.. awesome way. It makes sense maybe. Because like, you suck for doing that to Astoria but it's awesome, so. Yeah.
Only one chapter left! I am somewhat nervous. What's going to happen? Happy or sad ending? Scary thoughts, man.
ERICA.Author's Response: WELL SHAKE IT UP BABY NOW
(SHAKE IT UP BABY)
plot TWIST AND SHOUUUT
yes. it was a bit...well, it's a bit like the plot equivalent of getting run over, right?
scary thoughts indeed. ♥ Report Review
I almost skipped to the next chapter without reviewing - shame on me! Shame!
you continue to impress, my dear! You really have a knack for OCs and characterization in general. Plus your dialogue is like, supa fab. Supa supa fab, even. I mean, Draco and Astoria's interactions are pretty flawless. I love them. They flow so well and it's witty and fun but can still be deep and etc. Basically, you are awesome.
ERICA.Author's Response: shame be upon thouuu
thank you dear! :D eee that's so nice. deep like the marinas trench?
i would say something meaningful but...it's a wednesday.

OH THEY KISSED. THEY DID, THEY DID, THEY DID. Draco was so awks about it, omg. Haha. Astoria is such a champ. I'm a big fan of her. She's so cool. I have like this perfect mental image of that tweed jacket and her big silver watch, etc.
Also. License of obliviate. That is pretty cool, man. Pretty damn cool.
ERICA.Author's Response: i imagine draco was actually a pretty awks guy. i mean, did you see the hug in DH2?
when you say fan, you do mean oscillating fan right right
she's like james bond. but magicer.

OMG JULIA YOU TORTURE ME WITH THIS. Although, at least with this story I know it's finished, whereas with Blunderland I sadly did /not/ wait until it was completed to read it and am therefore now in the terrible position of having to wait for updates (which you better do soon).
I really love the flow and style of this story. It's very unique and it flows very easily. Like, some stories seem a bit forced, you know? Doesn't mean their bad, but they just don't have much of a flow to them. But this story just sort of effortlessly trails along but it's still all interesting and fab.
ON TO THE NEXT.
ERICA.Author's Response: well, it's short and sweet, this one. in that i did not have the energy to, you know, invent subplots. heee.
aww thank you oroco! that's so lovely ♥~

I AM SUPER CURIOUS ABOUT ASTORIA NOW I WANT TO KNOW HER LIFE. WHAT DID SHE DO THAT MADE HER FAMILY DISLIKE HER. WHAT DID SHE DO. WHAT.
I'd leave a longer review (lol like a couple sentences longer) but I pretty much have the need to go on to the next chapter right now, soo..
ERICA.Author's Response: short story: astoria is actually a lizard animagus. long story: she isnt. OR IS SHE. brrrm.

I have heard so much about Memento from the chattering of the puffins, so I figured I simply must read it. Plus, Drastoria. Amirite? I am.
You are such an awesome writer, dear Juliar, it is not even fair. And I'm sorry that all of my reviews are terrible, but I don't have the time/energy to be deep and thoughtful, as those things require both time and energy.
Anyway. This is supa great so far. I mean, it's beginning to be set up. I'm curious about Astoria and her story. There's just a hint about what's gone down in the wizarding world since the war. I mean, it's all very intriguing so far. Can't wait to read more!
ERICA.Author's Response: areurite? uare!
awww oroco thank you so much~ i would also say something profound, but i am far too preoccupied with photos of andrew garfield for that. srsly his face does something to my knees.

OH SCORPIUS YOU ARE BEING SUCH A DEBBIE DOWNER. I MEAN HE'S PROBABLY IN LOVE WITH FLORA WHICH IS WHY HE IS MAD BUT DUDE COME ON.
I'm shipping Al. Your A/N says people are shipping Scorp, and like I love the kid but I am shipping Al. OMG THEIR SHIP NAME CAN BE FLORAL. FATE.
ERICA.Author's Response: THAT IS A BRILLOPADS NICKNAME.
scorpius is, um, actually, in love with albus? can't you tell with all the gay subtext? goddd even johnlock isn't this obvious. goddd.
kidding. albus prefers brunettes.

THIS STORY MAKES ME SO DERPY AND HAPPY, JULIA. Why did I not read it sooner? You really must yell at me about these things, dear. Plus I haven't even finished SA yet, which is like the source of all of my eternal shame and it is shameful to even type it. Omg, must go cry in a corner now.
I super adore this, though. It's such a nice read. And Flora is perfect. I mean, you write her perfect. There is no one else like Flora. She is perfectly unique, yes she is!
ERICA.Author's Response: DERPY YAY. I like derpy.
plz plz don't read it for a bit. I plan to edit it soon. SOON. spoon.
flora is unique, just like every mildly quirky OC on this planet~
ALL THE DRAMALLAMAS WITH THE SLYTHERINS. A part of me thinks Scorp is being a baby and needs to get over hating Al but the other part is like ALL DA HUGS FOR SCORPIUS because baww he's so cute and like that was so embarrassing. Stealing a kid's inhaler ain't cool, bro.
Also, Al totally lurves Flora. Fact.
ERICA.Author's Response: DRAMALLAMAS FROLICKING WITH THE PUFFINS. scorpius is a bit of a dweeb. i bet he could learn to love albus. you know.
only time will tell.

Albus. He was hilario after they kissed. And still precious. Precious and hilario. I really like him and Flora together so farrr. But Scorp is still chillin in the background all adorable-like, so we will see.
