These stories make me feel a lot better about my parents' impending divorce because no matter what happens it'll never get as melodramatic as poisoning Simon. It gives me strength.

I've spent all day reading the trilogy and all I can say is that this could all have been avoided if they just shared memories through a pensieve. Isobelle is insufferable to watch and always in the depths of self-pity. I feel profoundly bad for Hermione and cheered inside when she left (but felt bad the fact that she left Scorpius and Isobelle behind!) shoutout to Hugo for not having existential crises and to Nina, who's worst problem is her grades and resentment. It could be a lot worse.

First, of course, I am soooooo happy that you are back! I thought for sure that this story was abandoned and wouldn't be continued and I would have to make up my own ending in my head...horrors! Welcome back! I'm sticking with you until the end, no matter what!
Now onto my review, which was fantastic and well worth the wait! I feel so bad for Rose, it really is a sucky situation to find yourself in and believing that you have no one else to turn to because you can't even tell the truth! I hope that she can find her happiness despite everything, and run away from her crazy family! With Scor of course! Because despite everything, I don't see him as a bad guy. He truly believed that he was saving his sister from an abuser and saved her life. Now do I think he went the right way about it? No, I don't. I think Belle is really poisoning his mind and making him turn into a person he isn't, because Scor has a lot of potential. He does. Like, Rose. And this crazy family are taking the two down with them.
And of course I loved the Scor and Rose scenes. I think Rose is in denial here which is understanable, I think she really has feelings for Scor otherwise she wouldn't have given in to him and felt as betrayed as she did for him leaving her in the dark about this big dark secret. She really wanted him to trust in her about all that was going on his life, and if Scor had done that, they could have gone about this whole situation with Isobelle and Simon differently. They could have gotten Iso out without having to kill Simon. Team Scor and Rose! Hahaha! I swear I'll never grow up..
Now, I'm glad Hermione is finally taking a stand and leaving Draco for the time being. Draco really needs to fight to get Hermione back, which he should. And I hate that he's keeping so many secrets from her...I hope somehow someway this will all figure itself out because I'm a huge dramione shipper!
Sorry for this long review! I loved it and can't wait for your next update!

I am so effing pissed off right now. I hope Rose murders Isobelle. I know she'll probably never sink to that level but god wouldn't it feel so good to know that Isobelle didn't get that happily ever after she so desperately wants but instead a brutally painful death! Yes, I am evil! I just hate her so much! I have never hated a character or even a person as much as Isobelle. She is such a weak, clingy, ditzy little bitch. She is supposed to be 26-27 right? Then how is it that SCORPIUS is more mature than her? Honestly I feel so bad for Rose. Now, she has to live with Isobelle's baggage for the rest of her life? Wtf is up with that? If I were Rose, I would suck all the toxic venom that is the Malfoy family out of my life. Sure, Rose has her own faults but she is the only one who is normal and with a conscious. Did I mention I hate Isobelle? She is just so effing unlikable. Anyway, your very horrible character(s) is in no way a reflection of your writing. You're actually pretty brilliant for someone your age. And that is why I will continue reading this story so I hope you plan on taking this story to a place where I don't want to claw my hair out in frustration after I read a chapter. I would love to see more from you though and not just this screwed up family.

First of all, I, too, have recently turned 18. Holla, girl! *virtual high five* We're both legal! Second of all, I am a long time reader; loyal to the fault. (Or is it to A fault? Not sure.) I will never abandon this story! Now for the review and brace yourself because it is LONG:
God, these people be messed up. The only character I have hope for is Rose. Make her run away. Run FAR away. She doesn't need these people. But I guess she would never leave her mother. Or Hugo, Nina and Delphine. Damn, this whole situation is completely messed up. Honestly, I have no idea where this story might be headed. I'll divide my frustrations according to character:
1) Draco: I just DON'T understand how Draco can force Scorpius in to an arrange marriage when he, himself, was adamantly against it in his youth. Has he turned in to his father? I'd say yes. He doesn't even care about his children's happiness. All he cares about is image, status and after Astoria, Hermione was supposed to help balance out his drilled-by-Lucius traits. Which brings us to:
2) Hermione: I feel like she is in the background for the most-part of this story and I don't think that is Hermione. She would prompty volunteer her opinions even if she wasn't asked and would not stand for any injustices especially if they concerned her children. I hope she grows back some of those Gryffindor balls and soon.
3) Scorpius: I feel sorry for him more than anything. Being forced in to arranged marriages is an issue all too real where I live. And he is basically just a kid like us. 17 maybe the legal age but it doesn't automatically give away years worth of maturity, wisdom and experience. I felt so bad when he just gave up. I just wanted to be like you CAN live without your father's money and family name. Maybe not as luxuriously but it is possible to be independent if he could just find the strength within himself. Just say NO. I hope he realises that before he makes what could be the biggest mistake of his life. I hope he finds that strength.
4) Isobel: You know she is the character I feel the least sympathy for even though I should feel the most sympathy for her considering she had an abusive husband who she couldn't leave for the fear of losing her daughter, and I may be slightly biased since I am Team Rose, but she represents all that I don't respect in women. She is just weak; even more so than Hermione and Scorpius and what not. She's just so dependent on the men in her life and she is such a bitch to the women (except possibly Nina and then later but even then not quite, Delphine). If I were her I would be grateful to Rose and Hermione for her loving and taking care of HER daughter while she was in what I deem postpartum depression after Delphine was born. I get it. The pressure for a son was high and with the miscarriages and all, it is understandable. Shit happens. But honestly, after a while she should realise that despite all that she is a mother and she should put her daughter and her needs first. Also what's the deal with the whole Teddy-separation thing? Is it hormones or is she really that stupid? How to get away with murder 101: Don't shack up with your lover right after you have both "witnessed" the death of your husband. Unless you want people getting suspicious. Can't she function without males around? Honey, women need men like fish need bicycles. Cliched but true. One more thing before my rant is over:
Does she not feel any remorse whatsoever? Simon was a horrible person but despite that she should feel SOME amount of guilt. She took a LIFE. Isn't she human? Or is she so cold blooded?
Honestly speaking, the characters in your story are horrible people. But your writing is just so addicting. I hope you plan on redeeming this screwed up family though I can't see how. But I look forward to more from you.

I'm so glad you're back! I forgot just how completely insane this family is...
