Aww, come on! Don't have Rose just obeying her parents without question when it comes to friends! Eleven is young but she's not little, either! How much more interesting if you have her using her own judgment. That's part of growing up. Otherwise, I love your story!Author's Response: Solana,
I'm sorry that I dissapointed you with Rose's submission to her parents, but it wasn't like she never questioned it. She qaurelled with her father, and if I recall correctly, she stood up for her best friend before being shut down by Ronald snarling at her. When her father said that Scorpius deserved the bullying, I feel that Rose might've taken that as a slap to the face. Shocked and speechless.
And eleven. That's the thing. She is young. She is innocent. I agree, she isn't a baby, but she is naive. They don't live in war and darkness like her parents. They weren't born to fight. In my story, Rose isn't fiery and vicious...she keeps things inside and in the end the frustration eventually comes out. She isn't hot-headed and rash. Stubborn, yes, but rash no. She does make her own judgements, I promise you, Rose isn't a doormat.
Don't worry, I'm not making her submit to her parents. Her and Scorp eventually make up. They WILL become friends, despite everything, but this is their first trial. Their first obstacle course.
I thank you for reading, and hopefully I might see you again for the next chapter... Report Review
aw poor Scorpy :(
The friendship bracelets! I loved them (but my friends never actually did it because it wasn't "cool" -.-) and it's so adorable how you put them in the story! I can just imagine Scorpius sitting in his room braiding little bits of string haha. :p
This was a great chapter! I really loved it! :D
I just want Rose to ignore her parents because they're being so... prejudiced! I thought Hermione would know better not to discriminate against others for being different! She was in the same situation! And yes, it was Draco but it wasn't Scorpius! He was born twenty years after that catastrophe happened!
Also, I'm really curious as to what happened to Henry's mum! He seems quite different to Seamus, but still adorable!
And I LOVED that Scorpius was teaching Rose about Wingardium Leviosa, just like Ron and Hermione. It started out with a spell... :p
So yeah, another lovely chapter, Pearl! It also reminded me about your new one-shot that I am going to read right after I submit this!
10/10! :DAuthor's Response: KAYLA!
Okay, first off, sorry for taking FOREVER to respond. But here I am and I shall respond to your lovely review.
Scorpius and friendship bracelets I must say, is one of the most adorable scenes I can envision vividly in my mind. In fact, I find it quite comical just seeing him braiding string in the Slytherin common room. It was honestly a spontaneous idea that I was so excited incorporate into the story. It's such a muggle thing and Scorpius' ignorance to such a hobby is quite cute. I can only imagine how it would make Lucius and Draco's skin crawl.
And Rosie will ignore her parents' request. Good ol' Scorpy knocks some sense into her. He sort of make a rebel out of her in a way. And I think in term's of Hermione's prejudism, it was more defensive for the sake of her daughter. Like the saying goes "I can forgive, but I can never forget.", Muggleborn predjudism was so bad, I wouldn't be surprised if some bitter scars never healed. Of course, Hermione does come to her senses soon enough later in the story, and Ron does tone down, but I can never really say that he's all rainbows and butterflies about it..
And Henry's mum. It's quite sad, but It'll surface soon. Henry does take on after his mum-quite the softspoken one. Not at all the fiery Irishman that his father is.
And Wingardium Leviosa. The spell that started it all. It was quite intentional, and I'm so glad that you caught it.
Thank you so much dearie for your reviews and continued support. It really does mean the world to me. Report Review
Aw love this story so far, loving the not so typical Rose/Scor romance. I really like how Scorpius isn't some cocky, arrogant popular kid as he is so often portrayed. Can't wait for the next chapter! YayAuthor's Response: fizzingwizzbies,
Hello there, lovely! I'm glad that so far you've enjoyed this story, and I feel terrible that I haven't updated enough for you to read. And the usual Scrose shipment...I had to agree, it was time for something different. And cocky Scorpius. I don't envision him cocky. I don't think 19 years would've healed the bitterness of the Wizarding world towards his famil--considering the amount of damage both his grandfather, Lucius, and Draco had done, therefore in my eyes, I've always envisioned Scorpius as an outcast. Sort of looked down upon. Now don't get me wrong, snarky Scorpius is good too!
And I will update. I promise. I know I haven't updated in a while, but the story will go on! Just give me a little more time, I'll get there. :)

This brilliant! I am getting so bored of th love/hate relationship, and feel that a popular 'heartbreaker' Scorpius is quite unrealistic considering his parents backgrounds! This has quite a realistic start - well done! I love Rose's insecurities as well, gives her more depth! Love it!Author's Response: Jasmine,
Hello there, I'm so glad that you found this as a refreshing piece of ScRose, in comparison to many others out there. I could totally relate to the usuall perception of Scorpius, he appears too snarky, to popular, when in reality his family was one of the most hated families in the Wizarding world. I don't think 19 years would've been enough time to erase the cold hearted bitterness between their worlds. And Rose needed some insecurities as well. I'm glad that you found her character had depth.
Thank you for the lovely review!

Much more realistic than other first chapters I'v read about Rose and Scorpius. The closest till now, they grew up together as friends then their horemoans kick in and they suddenly realize their in love. So far, I like this beginning alot. I can't wait to see where the story goes from here.
We'll settle back and get cozey for the winter, just writing and reading, well... maybe a little school work should be involved too.
see you next chapter :)Author's Response: AriesGirl40,
Well, heller there! I'm glad you found this realistic in comparison to other Rose/Scorpius fics. I wanted to try a different spin to the usual cliched story, so hopefully my experimenting will turn out okay.
And I really do need to update, but right now I've been so busy with school! Next week though, I will post up chapters 2 and (hopefully) 3. I've changed my mind about the story being 14 chapters, do to the fact it will have gaping holes in it, but I don't exactly plan for it to drag out.
Can't wait to see you around, and thank you for reviewing. Report Review
YOU DA BEST! ♥
This was so wonderfully adorable, I loved this new spin on them! :D
But I hate all the other people! They were so cruel! They're eleven!
This is really ironic because some of my moronic friends tried to beat up year eights (they didn't) and I was scolding them that they were being pathetic. And that's what I want to do to the guys that beat up Scorpius they're four years older than him (same age difference now that I think about it :p) and they shouldn't be doing that! Although the thing with my friends was because a sandwich was thrown, I was dying of laughter because they got annoyed because of that! How pathetic, right? :p
SO, that was a bit of a tangent. Anyway, I can't believe they expect Rose to have awesome brains like Hermione. Ron didn't have perfect brains (as we see in HBP :p) and why couldn't his intellect be passed on? :p
I liked the little friendship at the end, I'm so honoured that I have a fic dedicated to me. ♥
Thank you so much for writing this for me, I'm so flattered!
Please update soon! :D
10/10! :DAuthor's Response: Kayla, lovely! I'm so glad that you liked it! Throughout the whole entire validation process, I couldn't help but think, "what if she doesn't like it?". But I'm glad that you feel honored, and you deserve it because you're like, my HPFF bestie! :)
And yes, they are cruel aren't they? But they have their father's blood for one thing. I know it sucks that out of all schools they'd have the nerve to show their faces into Hogwarts! Bullies...I don't get them, but they're every where nowadays.
And someone threw a sandwhich at your friends? And they wated to go beat them up? Oh dear! I mean yes, it's totaly reasonable to get a bit peed, but to actually plot to go out and beat them up? That's a tid-bit harsh. It's a good thing though you scolded them! They didn't need to go do the unreasonable!
And yes, the whole "Rose must be smart like Hermione". I see a lot of that on here to be honest. Not trying to flame anyone who does view Rose as highly intellectual, I just wanted to toy with something different. But yes, I think it's safe to say Rosy takes up a bit more after her father in this story.
And the little friendship thing t'was adorable wasn't it? Good thing there'll be pleanty more to look forward to. But I'll warn you right now, not everything's going to be cupcakes and butterflies. Er...Henry's got problems of his own. But I got to keep my lips zipped now. No more giving things away. ;)
And yes! Like I said, you very well do deserve a story out there dedicated for you. 2nd chapter is currently undergoing construction. :) Report Review
