No its finished!!! So glad there is a sequel. I will start reading it ASAP! When I first started reading this story I thought it was just pretty simple and nice and then I slowly got into it and then BAM! I LOVE JUST ROSE!!! This story was really good. I loved the constant plot twists and the ever growing characters. I always thought that it would be ScoRose at the end and I really didn't expect Michael but I got to admit that Scorpius was just a bit too much even though I loved his crazy weirdness! Sigh... this story was really good :D Good Job :) See you at the sequel Report Review
OMG! WTH!!! I was sitting on the bus reading and then I read that last part and I spazzed and my friend thought something was wrong with me but then I just stared into spaced and she went back to reading a book. Anyway, I'm still in shock! Teddy? What? Did not expect that. I have to read on. Good job though. No wonder you won a Dobby for best plot twist. You definitely deserve it. I wonder what happens next! dun dun dun Report Review
I really like how far Rose's character has come. Can't wait for the return of Scorpius :P
On I go :D Report Review
Poor Boris :(
Scorpius being a fan girl - face palm but epic still. Sometimes you gotta luv him. Anyway, nice chapter and on I go :) Report Review
Omg! She said yes to being his girlfriend! I don't know what to think yet. Anyway, that was one of the most interesting and sweetest in a weird way dates I've read. It was perfect for rose and scorpius. Loving this story :) Report Review
OMG!!! I can't believe he made a shrine! Absolutely priceless. Even though Scorpius is really creepy and awkward, I just can't help but love him all the same :) He's a really interesting character. Good job! Report Review
Weird Scorpius is adorable. o.o amazing character build there, unexpected but wonderful. :) Report Review
This story has me captivated...I'm not sure how I like Scorpius being portrayed as a freakish stalker and Rose being a hermit that's friends with Molly(all the stories I've read to date no one has like Molly or Lucy, and I've grown used to that), but for some reason I can't stop reading. I want to see what this plot twist is and how this all works out. So far though, I am enjoying it. Very well written! Report Review
That was awesome! Author,I have just one thing to say to you:
WRITING Report Review
This was definitely worthy of "Best Plot Twist"! I didn't see that coming! Or most of the twists actually! You wrote this phenomenally, and I'm going to read the sequel as well! Wonderful job :) Report Review
So considering I've been dragged kicking and screaming into my family home and forced to socialise with my own family - very reluctantly and with a lot of whining after the first ten minutes minutes, if we're honest - this is making me feel a bit bad about the whole thing.
Now, I'm going to be up all night thinking about how I love my family really and it's most unfair of your Marina. But this was, as per, a lovely chapter and I like the fact that you didn't go into too many details about the Matthew date thing... because, well, it's nice that that isn't what this story is all about really.
So crazy that I'm nearly completely caught up! And then it's on to the sequel ;) Report Review
Okay. I really want to feel bad for Scorpius for overhearing the conversation but WHY WERE YOU IN THE WINDOW YOU LITTLE CREEP. Although I do think Rose may have been a bit harsh. Scorpius doesn't sound terrible, just a bit annoying/stalker/over the top. So really, even if he adores her, how are you going to date a stalker? I love the idea about asking Teddy for advice! Molly really may just be a genius.
Really, I like pretty much everything Molly does in this. She may be my favorite version I've read of her. I still absolutely love that you've chosen her and Rose to be so close, because I've definitely never read that in a story. She's organized, bossy but in the sense that she really does seem right most the time, eats too many cookies, is blunt but also seems like a really, really good friend to Rose. My heart is all friendships fuzzy ♥
'Scorpius was looking dangerously close to sulking' omg hahaha. He sounds like such a big baby. Poor Scorp needs a hug. And after that awkward lunch (random question - is it pronounced Hesuse? Or am I totally off? Hahah) ANYWAY after that Awkward lunch he's asking to come back for coffee?? Goodness gracious. This seems like it's going to be one seriously awesome story, darling!

I've never read a Rose lusting after Teddy!! Ahhh! And it seems like Rose just generally isn't crazy about Scorpius, not that she loves and hates him at the same time and I LOVE it. I love that she doesn't seem like she's trying not to like him, but that she really doesn't!
Molly is such a good friend/cousin in this. Sometimes when a girl is jealous, even if it's a lie.. hearing the other girl is ugly does actually help. Haha, I'm terrible.
I have a secret obsession with anything that includes large portions of the Weasley and Potters together, so the fact that you started this out as a gathering just made my day. And I like her and Hugo's relationship in a brother sister way. And that Molly came to the rescue with the information about the clock hands. But I did feel my stomach churn a bit when I thought about Hugo telling the entire family.. but at the same time maybe it wouldn't be bad if they knew?
I've heard so much about this story, and I'm sorry that I'm reviewing one that already has so many reviews. I just couldn't stop myself :(.
This was an awesome, awesome first chapter. You do such a great job at first person. I don't feel like I"m trapped inside her head as much as living through her eyes. First person is such a struggle for me that I'm always jealous of writers that can pull it off seamlessly.
OH AND I JUST REALIZED MARINA = TMWTTI = WORDUPMARINA. Wow. I should be a blonde.

I was unsure whether to start this story because it's just so damned long, and yet i'd heard SO much about how amazing it, so I decided to give it a try :)
I really enjoyed this. I feel like you can totally tell that I don't read stories very often, I've never seen one where Rose lusts after Teddy. And even more hilariously, the fact that Scorpius is kind of a nerd! he's never a nerd! That just made this story even more awesome! I do like the fact that you have characterized him like that though. Too often he is an exact copy of his father, and it's refreshing to see him depicted like this.
I feel like, being the 55th review on this chapter that I'm not going to say anything at all that you haven't already heard. :P
I like Rose though, she's so real and likable, she could be your best friend. That's one of the hardest things about creating characters, is making someone that you can empathize with, someone you can see yourself hanging out with, and I think you've managed to do that in this first chapter.
I will admit, rather embarassingly, that I still get confused between all the different cousins and who belongs to who, so I don't know who Molly belongs to (but I'ma wikipedia that so don't worry.) But I really liked the relationship between the two of them.
It's also interesting to see the dynamic between Rose and Hugo, and maybe it's because I never had a brother but when I write them, I always kind of write them getting along, so it was a little sad to see them so hateful to each other, but that's most likely more real than the alternatives.
Over all a great start to a long and decorated story, and I look forward to seeing where you take things :) Report Review
First of all I really want to say that I enjoyed your characterization of Rose and the rest of her family very much! I like that it wasn't Rose trying to convince the others to crash Roxannes party but Molly who is usually seen as the more quiet, book type. I just thought that doing this added something more to your story that sets it apart from others by using these characterzations. I only found one small mistake and it was here, "I blushed a deeply; I now resembled a lobster in a wig." the first a is extra. Other than that though I didn't notice anything else that needed to be fixed. The flow of the chapter was wonderful and it was just a wonderful read. I thought that the characterization was really the best part of this all though just with it being so different, it added a whole new layer which was really fun to see. I like the idea of the cousins not all getting along as well as it is rather hard to get along with them all all the time. I look forward to reading more! Great Job!

I'm here! I'm here at last! I guess all it took was a festive mass review swap for me to come back.
But, seriously, first I want to offer apologies for taking such a long time to get to this chapter. It's just after the events of the last chapter aligning all too clearly with events of the real life variety, I didn't feel like I could face this next chapter for the longest time. And then when I did come to read it I'd written out half a review before I accidentally clicked off the page and lost everything I'd written, and I took that to mean now wasn't the right time and decided to come back to it later again. And thus, here I am.
I do feel bad though, because I'm a biggg fan of Just Rose and it was one of the only stories which I reviewed continually from start to (almost) finish, but here I am and I'm wasting your time rambling on about this.
So with you wielding the mass shovel of death around and the feels associated with that I can't get really really get excited about Matthew without some degree of guilt, but still YAY AND ROSE LIKE HAS A PROPER PROPER JOB AND EVERYTHING and life is sort of like that, right, with bad things leading to good things and things just sort of happening and spanning out and I really liked this chapter.
Especially Scorpius, he was great in this chapter. An Dom's saying sorry and everythings getting SO intense and, yup, it's good to be back. If only for...two more chapters.

First off, I want to say that I am actually SHOCKED that I have not read this! I absolutely love humourous (I'm pretty sure I just spelt that wrong-oh well) fanfictions that involve the whole of the next-generation Weaslet family, especially one from Rose's point of view. And this story ticks all of those boxes!
Teddy/Rose is nothing new but I love the way you wrote it-it was very unique in the respect that Rose didn't seem to have feelings for anyone other than Teddy-by this I mean Scorpius. I like the fact that he had a crush on her, but the feelings weren't returned.
I ALSO like the fact that it seems like Molly is going to become a main character. She has always intrigued me-having Percy and Audrey for parents-and she is always written in such different ways, though I've never written her myself!
Great first chapter!

IT'S OVER. WEEPY WEEPY WEEP WEEP.
Love Matthew/Rose. Scorp/Rose shippers for this story are delusional. He's too much of a weirdo.
Can't wait to see what you *cough*I*cough* come up with for the sequel ;)
I LOVE YOU MORE THAN LIFE

You, naturally, inspire all of the story. Get yourself back into my life and help me make a fabber sequel ♥ Report Review
wow... different ending than what i expected... but i like how you made it so they ended up as friends.. and matthew.. i like it,... am gonna add this to my favouritesAuthor's Response: Thank you so much! It was a different ending to the one I first planned out (Matthew was a character I thought up after I started writing the story, and added in at a later date). I thought she might have ended up single, but it just so happened that the timing was right for her and Matthew.
I'm glad you liked it! Report Review

i actually feel sorry for teddy... n of course victoire... but poor guy...all his friends were part of the family... you r giving unexpected twists n turns.. i like this new more mature rose with less whining about teddy you know... nice..Author's Response: I've tried very hard to keep all the plot twists under wraps! When I was writing earlier scenes, they all seemed so obvious to me but if you weren't looking, you'd never know.
