According to Roxanne Weasley, it's impossible for things to change over the course of a single evening.
But then again, she wasn't planning on Scorpius Malfoy walking into her bar with a ring.

JILL JILL JILL.
So we chatted about this story a lot but I was dinking around procrastinating my own writing and i spotted a link for this, so I had to come and give it some more love.
Can i just tell you again how much I love your roxanne here? she's badass (whoops are we allowed to say that here? meh), to the point, but you can still tell that she is vulnerable and above all human and heartbroken.
You have this amazing ability to take these random pairings and make them WORK, and I really feel like you did that so well here.
You're wonderful and this story is wonderful also. #hearts
JULIE JULIE JULIE!
You're the best. I'm not sure if this story would be exactly this without all of your help, so I just want you to know how much I appreciate all of our chats. <3
I didn't really have a plan for Roxanne's voice - I don't normally for characters as they kind of write themselves, but I'm glad that she comes off as human and realistic. She's definitely heartbroken, although she's trying to hide it. Plus, I think she takes after Angelina a bit in her personality. :P
Thank you so much for this surprise review!
Love you <3

Ludo Bagman takes a dangerous walk through the grimy underground world of illegal thestral racing.
Hey pretty lady! Here for our review swap from last night :D
So, Ludo Bagman. I can honestly say I have not read a story about Ludo before, but I feel like with your new "every character ever" adventure, I'm going to be seeing a whole bunch of different ones in the upcoming months.
I love your ability to set a scene in the beginning of this story. It flows nicely, it's clearly written and easy to follow while still creating this great nerve-wracking image for the reader.
battered door that looked as if it lead to the cellar.- should be led.
Oh Ludo, what are you getting yourself into? Not good things, my friend!
Okay, but, Thestral racing? omg the world of possibilities just exploded. That's so freaking cool. I would ask "Kaitlin, how do you think of things like this?!" but I know it's just because you have this super freaking awesome imaginative brain and I will just pamper you in compliments for it.
Your descriptions of the race track are awesome. Even though it's just a few sentences, you get put right in the scene of the rubmle from the hooves and the view of the Thestrals.
Everything seems like it's going super smooth for Ludo, but there's still this sense of impending doom, mostly from the way Rookwood is 'smiling' at him. And because you know.. death eater and all that. So then of course, he wins, and he's all excited because "beginners luck", but we'll see if that's actually the case!
Okay, you've definitely got me intrigued for this story, about freaking Ludo Bagman because you're an amazing writer. I am excited and also dreading to see where this goes because like.. it can't be good, right? I mean. Right? lol.
I think you have an amazing grasp on scene building and adding emotions into those scenes. This whole chapter was clear and flowed brilliantly. I'll be keeping an eye out for chapter two!
