Scorpius had never looked forward to anything the way he looked forward to leaving Hogwarts with Rose. He planned a holiday with no friends, no family, and nothing to do but be together‚Ä”until a tampered Portkey changed their destination.
Author's Response: Next chapter I hope to see *sigh* :D.
i can't believe this one is about to end..
can't wait for your next one.
Author's Response: It isn't really the end, just a transition, like from an ongoing comic book series to films. The first one will be The Green Knight Rises. ^_^
Narcissa has called him an interfering grandfather. Lucius is not sure he deserves that.
i have a soft spot for all the Malfoys.
i believe and i hope, Lucius is a well wisher, who is taking care of Scorpious and Rose in his own twisted way.
i love the Poem by the way.
Author's Response: Thank you! You and I share that soft spot, and you're right, he's only intervening because he cares. Scorpius may wish his grandfather cared a little LESS, heh.
Summary: Not all Voldemort’s victims were on the side of right.
Over a year has passed since the Battle of Hogwarts. Families grieve, but their dead are remembered with honour.
For Draco Malfoy it has been a year of nothing. Merely existing, he is bound tightly to his past as if enveloped in a shroud, unwilling to accept help. It takes a chance encounter on a cobbled street to jerk him into the realisation that he cannot go on like this. A chance encounter with the one person who has most cause to hate him.
But shrouds, however tightly bound, unravel.
A huge thank you to Natalie (hestiajones) who put her laminated canon card in jeopardy by beta'ing this fic and being very supportive all the way through.
Disclaimer: I am not JK Rowling. Her lawyers agree, so please don't mistake us. I just like taking the odd liberty (ahem) with her characters (and pairings)
Nominated for two QSQ's in Best Non-Canon Romance and also Best Post Hogwarts story for 2011. Thank you.
i love the story already... got me all angsty and ready to punch somebody...
Author's Response: OOOH, who did you want to punch? Was it Ron? Or someone real - heh heh. Thank you ~Carole~
naah, i actually like Rowling's Ron. but i believe she never did justice to Draco's misguided victimised character, may be its the 'sympathy-for-the-devil syndrome' talking . but then all the Dramione fanfics make up for it.
Author's Response: Ah, well I wouldn't know about that. I don't read much Dramione, to be honest; this has been written very much as a personal challenge. I didn't mean Rowling's Ron particularly, but Ron here is being a bit of an arse. Glad you're enjoying it, though. ~Carole~
