In my ingeniousness, I accidentally posted a review meant for this chapter on the last chapter. I'm really sorry! XD Report Review
Hey Hey Hey!
I started reading this a while ago, and then I decided to revisit upon a re-venture into the land of Harry Potter fanfiction. I thought that HPFF was a desolate world, but your fics bring such a smile to my face I can't help thinking that.
I love this one so much! While I must admit, I am a bigger fan of Etc. Etc. (who can resist Sexy Albus?!), this is one of my favorite fics-nay, works of literature, of all time. Whenever I read this, I'm constantly laughing aloud and smiling, something that's not that common for me. I think that for the most part, you captured the ridiculous and fun spirit of the earlier pre-Voldy's-going-to-kill-us-all spirit of Hogwarts. I remember when I first picked up the books about reading a review comparing Rowling to Roald Dahl, a spirit that got lost in the series (which was unfortunate but necessary), and ever so much in the fandom. So I'm glad you made it your mission to revive it! There are of course, holes which isn't quite Hogwarts, like your femme fatale, but the person flavor you add to this just makes it that much more delicious.
I just had to review since you mentioned George. I generally read exclusively Next Gen (with some Marauders thrown in), because I hate people screwing with canon and canon characters. Frankly, I was terrified when I saw the setup for George, because the twins are so horribly misconstrued in fanfiction.
And you hit the nail on the head! Your George was absolutely perfect. The only thing was is that I felt sad that Fred wasn't there to finish his sentences. :'( I also was a little surprised that George was open to Bea working with Malfoy, considering he treats Bea like one of his own kids and the Weasleys have had so many bad experiences with the Malfoys. I know they're supposed to be all open-hearted and good and all that stuff, but from what we saw in the series, the Malfoys and the Weasleys were pretty set against each other for centuries. Especially since George and Draco are both business owners, you'd think George would have overheard the shady dealings of the Malfoys and given at least a light warning to Bea. That's my interpretation anyways, but each reader sees the characters in their own light!
Thank you for bringing such a large smile to my face! Report Review
I really enjoyed reading your story. Bea is wonderful and absolutely crazy charecter. I'm looking forward to the next few updates...hopefully sometime soon !Author's Response: Aah, thank you! c: It's in progress right now! Admittedly tough going but in progress! Report Review
First review ever.
The entire plotline of them being kidnapped and the invention being repurposed kind of threw me off. I guess I wasn't expecting it, but I'm not against it.
Your writing is fantastic, really, some of the best I've read on HPFF, which I think is why you can pull off just about any plot you choose to write. I'm fairly addicted to this story... to be honest.
I love the main characters of your stories, they're always so quirky, but not without flaws keeping them down-to-earth; however, what I admire most about your stories is... the main character always has something unique that they're good at/focused on - oh, I realize it's a huge part of the plot and not something you threw in for giggles, but I just have to say that it's so refreshing to read about a girl who has another focus besides whichever character they want to be with.
Keep up the fantastic writing.Author's Response: Aaah, I know it was the best planned storyline. There was one that fit better, but the ending just wasn't what I wanted. I've sort of come to accept it for what it is, though I always tinker with the idea of going back and repurposing a few chapters to make it lead up to it better.
Thank you very much! c: I do love the crazy plots (to me, they don't start sounding crazy until I start describing them other people and then I realize), so that's very good to hear. I love romance in stories, but it gets so tiring if it's all there is! A little mystery, adventure, social commentary goes a long way, and it's darned fun to write too c:
I AM UPSET.
I had written up a review and it was nice and long and lovely and I was just about to hit submit and then Firefox crashed on me because it hates me and it's gone -wails-
I'm much too annoyed at the computer/internet/life to try to both and retype it all, so instead I will give you a more or less concise summary of what it contained:
-SCORBEAUS SCORBEAUS SCORBEAUS ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ so much love Bea is wonderful and fantastic
-insert some of my favorite quotes here (hint: basically the whole chapter)
-sad face over Draco being dead because I feel sorry for Scorpius because he never got any closure and no one deserves to have their dad die
-clearly Emeric and Cato are uneducated because if they had ever picked up a book in their lives they would know the underestimating people is always a villain's downfall
-GO BEA GO
Right, that's about it. I am so so glad that I'm caught up again (I'll probably be dumping reviews on etc. etc. at some point in the near future, too) because these are probably the best four chapters ever. I've always loved your writing (I had a terrible time trying to find things that I hadn't already reviewed for Secret Santa this year) because you've got such an excellent grasp on all aspects of writing: characterization, plot, action, imagery. No matter what it is, it's always interesting, well-done, and completely engaging and I am always in love with it so. ♥ I'll be quite sad when Capers is over because it's been quite the adventure following it - and I do hope to stay on top of reviewing this time.
so much love for this story ♥Author's Response: D: Sometimes I wonder about all the review casualties caused by the back button. Oh, it'd be an ugly graveyard indeed.
- HEHEHEHEHE. I love that everyone who was sort of shifty eyed at whether it would happen (I really did not think I was being subtle about it) was finally like YEEES.
-I like Draco :c he's a favorite woobie, especially because I don't think he would really turn as good as most people write him like, but I can see him trying /really/ hard, and that makes it sadder D:
-CLEARLY IT'S VILLANY 101, but I guess they didn't take that class.
♥ c: c: c: sorry for the lateness of these responses I JUST LOVED THEM SITTING THERE IN MY UNANSWERED FOR SO LONG (it's my bookmark to hpff yaknow) and now I'm going back on the Capers adventure all over again AND I LOVE THAT THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE HERE ALONG WITH ME C: I'M JUST REALLY HAPPY.
BIG OL' ♥ Report Review
OH MY GOODNESS OH MY GOODNESS OH MY GOODNESS
I was far too concerned to review as I read this time but HA see Scorpius ISN'T dead HALLELUJAH -throws confetti- (but Draco is? pity, but preferable to the alternative)
Seriously though, I had to race through this chapter because the suspense! anticipation! action! This is not healthy. Too many emotions at once. (I am feeling very Ron-like right now in how many emotions I can handle.)
Bea :( Anjali :( Fred :(
When Cato and Emeric grabbed Fred I accidentally made this really weird noise that sounded a bit like a dying whale only quieter because everyone else is sleeping and I probably should sleep soon too but the point is that it caught me by surprise
RUN FRED RUN he is spectacular but no poor baby Bea no no no :( Although actually, in retrospect, it's probably better that she got caught because then she saves Scorpius etc. etc. (and life goes on) (ha ha I made a joke) (definitely time for bed)
But that was a nice and clever way to tie that particular plot end up and I am actually quite relieved. I didn't think he would actually be dead but... well. There's always the possibility, isn't it? And now Bea saves the day yay
and Scorpius loves her cue the trumpets and more confetti
Everything has gotten really exciting all of the sudden and I can't keep up and I very much appreciated Schrodinger Scorpius (I appreciate all jokes related to Schrodinger's cat because physics jokes are the best jokes) and now I only have one more chapter left which sort of upsets me and once again, I am suffering from an emotional overload right now which has a direct correlation to my production of run on sentences oops?Author's Response: fact: Scorpius' cure was actually the 3400 words of anticipation for that one line at the end, not the potion.
emoticon sandwich :( :( :( :) but at least it ends on happy!
Cato is like something from a horror flick just HAND BAM GRABS YOUR FOOT.
oh no you did-n't with that joke, that is nearly as bad as my 'a bannister always pays her debts'.
(it's ok it's like 1am here and I'm weepingly tired)
i love your run on sentences c: they are my favorite sentences and when people use them in reviews it also puts the pressure off me to be grammatically correct. I grammar enough in my writing, harrumph. I don't want to grammar all the time. also obv, Schrodinger Scorpius is too alliterative to not happen.
♥ Report Review
reviewing as I go along because I can yay
"Bea, did you give me hot pants?" oh my god
Also, little granny Bea is maybe the most adorable thing ever only I know all too well that grandmothers' looks can be deceiving- they can be terrifying.
It took a moment for Fred to catch the cue, but luckily gritty crime serials had prepared him well. Luckily. Should have known they would come in handy some day. Be prepared!
There went his hypothetical deerstalker. moment of silence for the deerstalker that could have been :(
YOU GO BEA YOU ARE THE BEST YOU GO AND STAND UP FOR YOURSELF AND CHANNEL YOUR INNER GRANDMOTHER
Also, slightly off topic (was there a topic to begin with?) but I agree with Fred about the whole idea of school preparing you for the real world but not actually being the real world. It's a bit weird and a bit scary to think of actually being pushed into it.
AL ♥ ♥ Potterpuff will always be my favorite forever and ever. His anthill explanation was literally the best ajsdklf;askj
I love that Fred's cover name is James. Perfect. (Also, he definitely wins best point man ever.) Fred is a shining star in this chapter.
Plans were somewhat of an oxymoron, as no plans ever went as planned, and the only solution was to have low expectations and plenty of backups. to be honest, I think the only thing I expect at this point is an explosion.
WAIT WHAT NO
SCORPIUS CAN'T BE DEAD LIES LIES LIES STOP IT
I refuse to believe it. You're really just doing this because you like to be mean and mess with me so I'm going to go read the next chapter now and Scorpius will be alive and everything will be fine all right goodbyeAuthor's Response: ahuarhaurhur, I love review-alongs for this chapter.
y'all have to fear anyone who's been here for eighty-odd years. That's a lot of years to not-die (unless you're Harry).
(That was the moment of silence. I lowered my own deerstalker over my heart. I don't actually own one, but the image was so clear in my mind, I convinced myself that I did. It was red tartan)
Fred's bit about school was inspired! The ~competitive job world~, even freshman year of college is really different already from secondary school. I expected it, but it still kind of blows my mind.
Cupcakes and explosions are the only constant. We are basically only missing a bakery explosion.
~ ~ ~ WELL YOU ALREADY KNOW ~ ~ ~
but I did imagine you crossing your arms and shoving Scorpius's life force in my hands with all the tenacity of Bea, like NOPE NOPE NOPE HE'S NOT DEAD ALL RIGHT GOOD DAY SIR. Report Review
-pokes head in- ...err, hi. -coughs- So the last time I reviewed this (actually, the last time I reviewed anything on the archive, which was coincidentally ch 20 of this) was in August and that makes me a bit sad on the inside because I have now fallen way behind and that makes me upset ajskdl;fajslkdj
all that to say that I am determined to catch up on everything I have missed (read: I have homework that I'm procrastinating on currently) and so I may or may not end up leaving you like ten million hundred reviews, give or take a couple hundred.
and wow I had forgotten how much I absolutely love this and Bea and everybody. Asking out a boy is no different than asking to pass the salt and then fearlessly flustered Beatrice Chang charging headlong into things wearing a skirt and now she has to find Scorpius because I ship them and I don't like my ships sinking :(
(of course the Slytherins play poker)
THE GAME IS AFOOT. And the game is cupcake forensics. ♥ ♥ ♥ Naturally. What else could it be? (literally so much love for that you have no idea)
Vanishing cabinets. Heroics. The power of sweets. What more could I ask for in a chapter?
(Scorpius, but I guess we can't have it all.)
That was exciting and fantastic (and ten times more interesting than biology) and although it's been five months (oof that sounds bad) I still love this story to pieces and probably always will yay
(once again this review has been a bit of a mess but I have yet to master the art of coherent reviewing)Author's Response: FINALLY I COME RESPONDING~ Incidentally, I also need to catch up on responding to you :P I wanted to leave this until I started writing Capers again WHICH IS NOW! (also boo real life but YAY on summer job responsibility which I saw a few days ago)
Anyone can charge headlong but only the most courageous charge headlong in a skirt.
(and they cheat, obv)
I remember trying to stop up all the loopholes and figure out why you couldn't just magically figure out where Scorpius was, so he had to leave clues that you had to rack your brain over and not your wand, so clearly: cupcakes.
Poor Scorpius, star of a chapter in which he doesn't even appear.
♥ I MISS YOU ♥
I could write loads of really nice stuff about your fabulous writing but there really isn't enough space so I'll keep it simple.
LOVE THIS STORY.
SCORPIUS + BEA 5EVA.
OVER AND OUT. :)Author's Response: CONCISENESS WORKS!
WILL KEEP WRITING.
♥! Report Review
First of all, I love you dearly and everything, but ARE YOU TRYING TO KILL ME?
Oh, the feels. First, Bea is a crazy Chinese grandma, then Scorpius is dead. Then Bea gets kidnapped along with him, and THEN SCORPIUS ISN'T DEAD? And if that wasn't enough feels to give me a heart attack of happiness, THEN BEA AND SCORPIUS START MAKING OUT IN A CLOSET DURING IMPRISONMENT. I don't know how you come up with this stuff, but please continue to do so, because I would love to read Capers for the rest of my life. seriously. I want to know what Bea and Scorpius and Fred, Anjali, Potterpuff, etc., do until their dying days. You could do that for me, right? (:
I could not speak after this chapter. I was too shocked to articulate my feelings, and I always have words. You, ma'am, are a wizard with words. (if I have not called you this before now, I apologize, because you have always been).
Draco is dead? Poor Scorpius. I didn't like him much anyway, but that is mostly just past grievances against the golden trio that I can't get over. But his son is adorable and it's a terrible blow to be told that your father was murdered, whether he was a good one or not. The feels during that particular scene were almost too much to bear, and then you added in cutesy, comforting Bea and the salve. AND HE ASKS IF SHE IS GOING TO LICK IT OFF OF HIS FACE. Which, if the circumstances were less dire, I could totally see her doing.
And their escape? AH. So much good and bad feelings that come with that. For Bea to break her invention, it just proves how much she loves him. Scorbeaus will always be my otp. I love how you added a little love into what seems to be primarily an action fic. It's the perfect blend of adorable, a little terrifying, and the best things ever.
I can't wait for the next chapters, but yet I can, because I don't want Capers to end.
ric.Author's Response: :'D Capers is a rollercoaster flying down the hills and off the cliffs.
I actually will write a short story collection of lots of miscellaneous Capers stories, and I actually do have stories about them for about 10 years after they leave Hogwarts (it's just a matter of writing them out), so stay tuned! c:
Aaah a wizard with words. If that is the only wizard I'll get to be... well, I'll still be sad because being a wizard with magic is pretty darned cool, but I supposed I'll be all right.
Leave it to Scorpius to wrench our hearts out ;-; it was all him, not me, because I never planned to have such a sad scene but the circumstances insisted, and he stole the show.
♥ I love how every one of the characters' priorities changes. Fred struggles with his identity and finally becomes comfortable with being a protector, and then Albus proves he can be assertive in his own way, and for Bea, it's discovering selflessness - which I think is influenced mostly by Fred - and trying to figure out the balance between herself and others.
♥ thank you! c: With all the stories I have, I think Capers won't end for a very long time in their miscellaneous exploits! Report Review
OMG. OMG. This story has gone from fun frolicking inventing capers to life or death capers. Love love love the use of the invention to escape it was so perfect. Your writing is SO ridiculously clear and powerful in these chapters. For both the awesome emotional scenes (They finally got it together!!! KISSES!) to these last action drama scenes were you can literally see everything happening. I've only started really appreciating how amazing your writing is since I started trying to write myself and yeah, you're amazing. So amazing. And this story is just rising and rising in its amazingness. - TanyaAuthor's Response: Aaah thank you so much c: I floundered quite a lot trying to describe the action AND SO MUCH RUNNING OMG, it's hard but it's definitely worthwhile. ♥ You got an account finally! Always nice to see more people writing! Report Review
"Scorpius' shirt had gone totally rumpled and slightly unbuttoned. It was an accident, she'd swear. "
This is the cutest line ever. I totally loved their moment. It was simple and perfect.
The action. The drama. Everything was amazing. You can take all the time you need to update. The more time you need, the better because I really don't want Capers end. I will really miss this story.
I loved every moment of Capers.
Thank you!Author's Response: c: there's something about writing romance in a non-romance fic that I love, because it's like an extra treat -- the sprinkles on top~
♥ I am quite busy these few months so I will unfortunately have to take quite a bit of time, but Capers will definitely live on for a while even after it ends c: I've got lots of short little stories backed up. Report Review
THINGS THAT ARE NOT OKAY
1. Scorpius and Bea are trapped
2. Emeric and Cato exist
3. Draco is dead
4. Scorpius has been roughed up
5. Bea's invention has been repurposed with malicious intent
6. Will Franjali ever don mackintoshes?!?
7. It has been TOO DAMN LONG since we saw potterpuff
8. this entire chapter basically
THINGS THAT ARE OKAY
In a nutshell because I've already poured my heart out to you about this on skype: warghblarghargharaghrghahahhh
Excuse me while I sail this Scorbeaus ship into the sun.
♥ ♥ ♥Author's Response: But you see Scorpius counts for 9 things SO THE OKAY SIDE WINS OUT.
Also appreciation that you appreciate beat-up Scorpius because that is egregious emotional manipulation that I have wanted to dish out for like forever ♥ Report Review
TWO MORE CHAPTERS+EPILOGUE NO. T.T
But anyways, how can Scorbea get all lovey-dovey in that situation?! I guess we-are-going-to-die-situations brings out all the sudden lurrrve bahaha.
And thank goodness Scorpius is alive (although Draco's dead no) cause seriously we need more cupcakes and glittery blazers in the world.
(I kinda hoped Capers Scorp should do a Blunderland Scorp and get all electrifying hahaha. Imagine if he swallowed the core of the prototype and became a human magic converter heh. But of course, I'd rather have him bake cupcakes.)
Also, I love the CI and you and this story and all the cookies in the world.
Update soon (or not. so And Capers Ensue won't end because seriously I have nothing left to read and wait for~)
Much luff! Author's Response: HOW CAN THEY NOOOT~ Bahaha I was debating on whether they would kiss then, because I had lined up a few moments where they could, but I was like NOPE BEA IS TOO HAPPY TO NOT JUST KISS HIM WHEN SHE FINDS OUT HE'S ALIVE. And so I let her do that and she nearly accidentally strips him.
Yes Scorpius' sleeves still need to open a bakery. I cannot deprive the world of that.
HA. Julia's zombie-Scorpius is the best. When she told me about how he became a microwave I cackled. He transcended levels of downtrodden.

YOU ALWAYS THINK THE WORST WHEN YOU'RE IN LURVE, BEA
so remember when I was saying that things going wrong between people make the best relationships - - well, this would qualify, woulnd't it. also bea is going to come to the rescue and scorp is going to actually express himself in more direct ways than singing the song he heard bea humming (argh still have feels about that)

they are rocking back and forth together. be still my heart.
I love and envy the way that you've created a new register for Bea and Scorpius; things they say to each other mean different things than what they'd mean to other people. That that is clear to readers is something incredible to me because it's so difficult to make people believe the implausible. I suppose that's a bit rich, talking about a story like this, but I just really enjoy reading their interactions, not just because I get FEELS but because I can tell you really think about them and their relationship exists in a kind of space where there are established rules, but they're not static.
Also, who says writing essays isn't fun. Ahem.

Albus would be the best pity date ever, Scorpius, you should be grateful. I have full faith in the fact that Albus will get his themepark and it will be a magical place.
awryerye creys. This is so good. I can't believe I haven't kept up with reading it. This sort of writing brings back the magic of Hogwarts and plot-rooted fic, which is what drew me into the ff world so deeply eight years ago. And apparently, it's what's keeping me here, too. THIS IS SO GOOD HELPAuthor's Response: I AM NOTING THIS BUT WITH A RAISED BROW OF DISBELIEF.
I am like rolling around in that paragraph because it says everything I have ever wanted to hear *__* LIKE I know Capers is an ensemble but it is undeniably very much /Bea and Scorpius's/ story, individually and together, and to see them grow as their interaction changes c: bless those bbs.
I SAY. unless they get turned into confetti >:D
Yes, wizards needs more theme parks anyway. Perhaps the Wonderful World of Muggles, feat. flying microwaves.

As she was about to retort, she became acutely aware of how dizzying forty feet could be, especially on such a wobbly piece of wood. Her single-handed grip on Scorpius' blazer turned vice-like.
HOW DIZZYING SITTING ON A BROOM WITH SCORPIUS MALFOY CAN BE, YOU MEAN. ahem. Also, ouch, I've tripped over a bale of hay once and got scratched up from it. You'd think hay is something that wouldn't hurt you but no. But also my writing professor last year told the class that the best thing that can happen to you on a date with someone you really like is for something to go wrong, because that way you become allies against fate and therefore the relationship is perfect. Or, something like that. So what you're doing is creating the perfect relationship. I just thought you should know.
togas and chocolate in heaven omg creys bea is me except for being a genius and actually talking to boys COUGH
OH MY GOD GINA I HATE YOU TOO MANY GOOD THINGS ARE HAPPENING AND UGH IT HURTS

We had those trees that had these super long springy needles that came in hair-like bunches and anyway, that's what I think of when I think of hay. I also do not know the difference between hay and straw. I will google that now.

"Did James tell everyone to keep me away from girls?"
He nodded. "Yeah, a little bit. A couple of us had a seminar at the end of last year. He passed out pamphlets. We called it Fredwatch, but that sort of watching is a lot less creepy. James said, 'You get restless without distractions and channel it into unhealthy pursuits.' His words, not mine."
OMG I LOVE JAMES
Dear Lord, Scorpius and Bea under the cloak sound like my humanities class when we were learning the theory of quantum physics arguing with the professor; or, rather, questioning intensely. And beyond this it's highly entertaining, which class wasn't.
Scorpius stopped fiddling with the pick and stared down at her. "Why do you have to meet them?"
She shrugged. "It's their company, isn't it?"
Something passed over his expression, almost like relief, and he resumed twisting the tiny rod of metal.
BECAUSE HE THOUGHT THEY WERE DATING AHRUWEHRUWEHRUHWEURHAUWEHRYHEWURY SCORPIUS
OK, so I'd read this chapter before but hadn't left you a review and I thought, if I'm going to marathon read, I'd better really make sure I know what's going on so I can pretend to leave nice reviews; anyway, I Love SCORBEAUS as you know and am looking forward to it. I know you don't ship anyone in this fic but I ship everyone which balances it out. OK moving on ♥Author's Response: I DID NOT REALIZE HOW ADORABLY I'VE WRITTEN THE POTTER FAMILY UNTIL I THINK OF JAMES AND ALBUS TOGETHER. THOSE DORKSsfjdkfm.
This is because cats.
LOOOL he's just embarrassed about his parents like any other teen, although I thought of that too. I lulz over how much of the stuff they say sounds like they're in a relationship and I /don't even intend that/. REALLY.
♥ LOL "I DON'T SHIP ANYONE" but now you know. NOW YOU KNOW. Report Review
