That was such a great ending! Oh man. That was just wonderful. And I hope Rose gets everything she deserves. She's a Mouse killer!

It would be nice if the universe worked like that, wouldn't it? :D

"Because," panted Albus, at the end of his tether, "she's a bitch."

BEST LINE EVER.

Amazing chapter, this. I love how you depicted Harry and Draco, not to mention Ron. And Albus' run-in with Dumbledore and Snape was really well-done and amused me to no end. Eeeexcellent.

Thank you very much!

Rose gives me such amusement. She's still such a childish little brat. Some of the comments you've received make me think they're taking her behavior a bit too seriously, though.

Oh yes, she's a little bitch. And what she did to Mouse was horrible. But it's not that far out of the standard of sibling (and as close as the families are, cousin) behavior. My older sister, at one point, attacked me with a broom. She used to really bully my little brother and I quite a bit -- but she grew out of it, regrets it, and is really a genuinely good person. I'm perhaps closer to my sister than I am anyone else.

I'm not saying that's necessarily going to be the case with Rose or James, but they're kids. And even the kids that are nasty little buggers a good percentage of the time are not evil.

OH, WORD.

SERIOUSLY.

I need to like, link people to this comment. I even made a post about it. But people still. don't. get. it. Or that I'm not interested in Hermione's parenting skills or Rose's comeuppance - this is Albus' story, for crying out loud!

Mailing List
Do you have a mailing list so that readers can be notified when you update? If you do I'd like to know so I can be added.

Re: Mailing List
If you mean an email one, no. I have a fic-only journal rainspots - you could friend that if you wanted fic-only updates.

There are so many fantastic parts to this chapter that I cannot list them all. Love it.

Thank you!

that was awesome!!! I was beginning to think albus had no spine but he was great!! I've been loving this fic since the beginning and just wanted to congratulate you for a job well done!!
I'm a little disappointed on Harry though, the fact that he doesn't know how much of a bully james is and even more that having been bullied himself he doesn't recognize or has raised one himself.
I love scorpius too, he's soo cute. and I think you've portrayed a real view of what harry's and draco's relationship would be.
ok, enough keep writing!
every Starbucks should have a polar bearscoradh on August 20th, 2007 03:36 pm (UTC)
Albus is more courageous than most, he just doesn't like telling on people. That hardly makes him spineless. Most kids hate tattle-tales.

It's a hard thing to see in your kids. Most parents live in denial in my experience.

Thank you! ♥

This chapter was so wonderful! It has the Dumbledore-Snape painting encounter and the wedding! The parts with Titania and Morse were also wonderful, and the last two lines were perfect. (^_^)

The only thing I didn't like was the cliffhanger. (-_-) I'll be waiting patiently for the next chapter!

Thank you! (I so didn't realise it was a cliff-hanger ... my bad.)

"I'm acquainted with Luna," said Mr Malfoy to Dad's shoes.
"Ah yes. She stayed in your house once, I recall."

::SHAKES VIOLENTLY WITH LAUGHTER::
Oh yes. It was a slumber party to remember XD


And yay for Albus finally actually making Rose accountable for her actions. God, the adults are amazingly histrionic in this, just like I'd always hoped they would be. I think this is a great contrast to PS when Harry turns down Draco for Ron-- now the Weasleys are getting their side of rejection. XPP Ron is going to have a fit. Somehow I doubt that Harry and Ginny mentioned Scorpius to them (probably since they hoped it would all go away)

Poor Albus and Scorpius just want to sit alone in their garden of Lovegood zen, exchanging "friendship bands" and being practically married themselves.

I loved this part of the comment! (and the rest as well, that goes without saying) I thought of it later and made up a whole meta essay on how 'married' is such a cute term in slash and yet has such negative connotations elsewhere. Thanks for that! ♥

Go Albus! And shame on you, Harry, for insulting poor Scorp like that. Can't wait for the next part!

Aahhh, the last line! Hehe, the bracelet was cute, and so was the part where they tell their fathers that they're acting stupid.

Yes, totally taken from life. Love the icon, btw!

Yup, the part where they tell their fathers to stop being stupid, and Albus's words at the end--excellent!
