ROSE: On the contrary, it's exciting. I'm a Granger-Weasley, you're a Potter—everyone will want to be friends with us, we've got the pick of anyone we want.
- Harry Potter and the Cursed Child - Act I Scene III -
In the Cursed Child, we get a great look at the next generation characters in the series. As the first child of Hermione and Ron, their daughter combines the best - and maybe the worst - of their personalities into one. This month's discussion is about:
Rose Granger-Weasley

1. Do you like Rose as a person? As a character?
I like her as a character and I don't see her as a bad sibling since she does mellow out in the end.

2. How does Rose compare to Hermione? How is she different?
She smart as Hermione with some of her character of being smug at times, a miss know it all. She doesn't have Ron's personality except in playing Quidditch. She is different in the way she treats her cousin indifferently. I don't think I could ignore family in school. She seems self-absorbed and competitive.

3. Do you think Rose's upbringing contributed to the way she viewed Albus? Explain.
Yes, since her family looked down at the Malfoys and considered them Death Eaters. Ron must have told her the story about Death Eaters. Rose didn't get to know Scorpius but instead believe what her family told her. This is narrow-minded since Scorpius is kind and shy.

4. What do you think of Rose's attempt to reconcile with Albus? Do you think the rest of the story would have played out the same way if she hadn't tried to improve their relationship?
I think she was pressured by her parents. No, I don't think so. Rose needed to mend her relationship with Albus.

1. Do you like Rose as a person? As a character?
I think she is a very complex and interesting character. However, I don't like her as a person. I don't like how she treats her cousin in school. And besides that, I don't know enough about her to know if I'd like her otherwise.

2. How does Rose compare to Hermione? How is she different?
She is very smart and a bit of a know it all, but otherwise, she is not as clever and loving as Hermione. Hermione met Neville on the train to Hogwarts, and despite him being obviously shy and a bit of an outcast, she befriended him and helped him. I don't see Rose doing that unless they are popular.

3. Do you think Rose's upbringing contributed to the way she viewed Albus? Explain.
I'm not sure if it did. I don't remember much about her upbringing, but I don't see either Ron or Hermione as tolerating leaving people out or being mean to family.

4. What do you think of Rose's attempt to reconcile with Albus? Do you think the rest of the story would have played out the same way if she hadn't tried to improve their relationship?
I understand it, but I have a hard time figuring out if it was sincere or not. Or if it was just because he was becoming a different person. Would she have still tried if he stayed the same throughout? I think things would have played out differently, though.

1. Do you like Rose as a person? As a character?

No I do not like her either way. She appears to have the worst of Hermione’s traits with none of her good points. Must be Ron’s influence, lol.

2. How does Rose compare to Hermione? How is she different?

As I stated above, she in my opinion, does not compare favorably with Hermione. Rose is too quick to judge and seems to refuse to ever change her mind.

3. Do you think Rose's upbringing contributed to the way she viewed Albus? Explain.

I see the effects of her father, more than her mother. She seems to feel she is smarter and wiser and therefore better.

4. What do you think of Rose's attempt to reconcile with Albus? Do you think the rest of the story would have played out the same way if she hadn't tried to improve their relationship?

I do not think she did it honestly. I think she did it because she knew it was expected of her, not out of any true feeling.

1. Do you like Rose as a person? As a character?
I like her as a character, she has quite a lot going on and seems to have a reasonable level of depth. As a person I'm not so sure, she really doesn't seem like a nice person, far too competitive and self interested.

2. How does Rose compare to Hermione? How is she different?
I think she is fairly similar to how Hermione was at the start of the series, obsessed with getting things right. Having said that I can't see Hermione ever having treated family the way she does so there are certain differences.

3. Do you think Rose's upbringing contributed to the way she viewed Albus? Explain.
It does seem likely, she grew up with famous parents. Parents who were famous champions against the Dark Arts and who had historic issues with the Malfoy family and members of Slytherin house. I guess to a certain extent she probably thought Albus had betrayed the family by being sorted into Slytherin and treated him accordingly.

4. What do you think of Rose's attempt to reconcile with Albus? Do you think the rest of the story would have played out the same way if she hadn't tried to improve their relationship?
I'm not sure really. I would want to see more before I decide if I she was genuine.

1. Do you like Rose as a person? As a character?
I like her as a character and she seems okay as a person.

2. How does Rose compare to Hermione? How is she different?
She’s smart like Hermione but in some ways, she seems to have a lot of Ron’s personality traits.

3. Do you think Rose's upbringing contributed to the way she viewed Albus? Explain.
I think a lot of the way she viewed Albus had to do with what she learned about the Malfoys but some of it is just her personality. She seems a lot like Ron in that she quickly jumps to a conclusion.

4. What do you think of Rose's attempt to reconcile with Albus? Do you think the rest of the story would have played out the same way if she hadn't tried to improve their relationship?
I think maybe she was starting to regret not being close to him like she once had but she may have also been encouraged to do it by her parents. As for how the rest of the story would have turned out if they hadn’t had the time turner, they couldn’t have used it.

1. Do you like Rose as a person? As a character?
I didn't enjoy Cursed Child so that may influence me, but she is not the kind of person I would want to have as a friend. As far as her character goes, books need different types of people to add depth, so she fits.

2. How does Rose compare to Hermione? How is she different?
Her nature is completely different from Hermione. Yes, she wants to succeed but at the expense of othersm unlike Hermione.

3. Do you think Rose's upbringing contributed to the way she viewed Albus? Explain.
I would not like to say it was her upbringing, rather the combined hurtful traits of both parents.

4. What do you think of Rose's attempt to reconcile with Albus? Do you think the rest of the story would have played out the same way if she hadn't tried to improve their relationship?
Was it a true reconciliation on her part? I tend to think not. It was just a way to make everyone else happy.

1. Do you like Rose as a person? As a character?
I have to preface my remarks by saying that I don't consider Cursed Child to be canon and disliked the story line with a passion. That said, I think Rose's complex character - with its attendant strengths and weaknesses is vital to the story...I'm not quite sure I like her as a person.

2. How does Rose compare to Hermione? How is she different?
Rose is quite intelligent like her mother...however, I thought she lacked Hermione's empathy for others (who can forget Hermione's crusade for the rights of house elves?). Rose was also quite competitive - which is, ironically, a trait often ascribed to Slytherins - while Hermione's ambition was more a pure thirst for knowledge than a desire to feel superior.

3. Do you think Rose's upbringing contributed to the way she viewed Albus? Explain.
I think that Rose was likely raised with a bias against Slytherin House and its members, and I think that came mostly from Ron. Rose may have thought Albus a traitor to the family for having been Sorted into Slytherin - although he really had no say in the matter...so instead, she may have grown suspicious of some aspects of his personality because the Sorting Hat placed him in Slytherin. Sibling rivalry may have also contributed to the dynamic of their relationship - oldest child being used to being the standard bearer to which younger siblings are supposed to aspire, being upstaged by the youngest sibling's irreverent behavior.

4. What do you think of Rose's attempt to reconcile with Albus? Do you think the rest of the story would have played out the same way if she hadn't tried to improve their relationship? Like others posting in this thread, I thought her attempts to reconcile with Albus were more out of a sense of duty than a genuine change of heart.

1. Do you like Rose as a person? As a character?
I like my characters to be three-dimensional and have a lot of depth, and Rose is a very complex character, so I like her quite a bit. Having said that, I don't think I'd want to be friends with her in real life.

2. How does Rose compare to Hermione? How is she different?
Rose is smart and competitive like her mother. But Hermione was also wise and empathetic, traits that Rose lacks. Hermione knew how to treat people empathetically even when they were suffering, and she exerted a great deal of wisdom in her interactions with people.

3. Do you think Rose's upbringing contributed to the way she viewed Albus? Explain.
Yes, it did. Having being brought up by two Gryffindors, and surrounded by their Gryffindor friends, she was already biased when she boarded the Hogwarts Express. She hated all Slytherins and all Malfoys without caring about who they were as a person.

In a way, Rose probably combined the worst of her parents' traits. Hermione was smart, but a Muggle-born and unused to the ways of the wizarding world. Ron was pureblooded but poor. This mellowed down their pride. But Rose was both smart and bore the Weasley surname (not to mention, her parents were now really famous people). This somehow gave her a false sense of entitlement, and she stopped considering other people's viewpoints/thought what she knew was the best.

4. What do you think of Rose's attempt to reconcile with Albus? Do you think the rest of the story would have played out the same way if she hadn't tried to improve their relationship?
Honestly, it was probably forced by her parents.

1. Do you like Rose as a person? As a character?
I do like Rose as a person. I also like her as a character because she has a very interesting personality.
2. How does Rose compare to Hermione? How is she different?
She has her mother's intelligence, but she is definitely more opinionated than Hermione.
3. Do you think Rose's upbringing contributed to the way she viewed Albus? Explain.
I do think Rose's upbringing contributed to the way she viewed Albus because she shows a lot of interest in Albus because of his father being Harry Potter.
4. What do you think of Rose's attempt to reconcile with Albus? Do you think the rest of the story would have played out the same way if she hadn't tried to improve their relationship?
I think it's respectful, but I also suspect motive behind it. I do not think the rest of the story would have played out the same because the relationship helped the plot along.
