Rose was a Weasley. She never gave Scorpius Malfoy a second glance. They were sworn enemies, even though they’d barely even spoken to each other. But sometimes all it takes for love to blossom is a Potions lesson, a few snide remarks and a dropped book.
Two people. Two entirely different worlds that are suddenly intertwined.
I noticed that Scorpius didn't seem surprised by Draco's stinging hex, or the severity of Lily's symptoms. Sounds like he may have personal experience in being on the receiving end of that spell. You are really making my heart break for him in this story.
Please please please keep going on this one, it's brilliant!

Note: As you might have guessed, Für Das Größere Wohl is German, meaning: “For the Greater Good.” Yes, this story is from the perspective of the bad guys.
First of all, I'm really enjoying this story! I just re-read it though, and I'm curious about Ernst. Is there any chance he's a Jewish--or half-Jewish--kid who's been hiding his background? He seems to be going out of his way to display his Catholicism, almost like he's playing a part. He's also a lot more eagar than Dieter to break with the muggle world, even mentions life at Durmstrang as a fresh start without the old divisions. That would makes sense for a kid who's been forced to hide and lived with that kind of fear. Then there's his story about his parents. Divorce was all but unheard of, but annuling a marriage between a Jewish woman and a gentile man would have been right up the Nazi's alley. It occured to me that his mother could have been Jewish, and after his parents split up he was taught to almost flaunt Catholicism as a way of avoiding suspicion. Or maybe I'm just reading way too much into this character and I need to concentrate on watching Dieter try to embrace two dictatorships at once.
Summary: "There are many stories between the lines." - Jo Rowling, about the Black Family Tree.Cedrella's goal all her life has been to be the perfect Black. She has impeccable manners, commands respect, is always composed, and has never had a friend in her life. But Cedrella has a secret that is about to get a lot more complicated… Septimus is the youngest of seven Weasley brothers. His dearest wish for his seventh year at Hogwarts is to meet the mystery girl he once saw dancing in the Owlery in the dead of night… This story is a romance, but it is also a story about family, owls, and what it feels like to know you are worth something.
I've been following this story for a year now, and I LOVE it! Sep and Drell are, without a doubt, my favorite characters that we don't meet in the books. I think the letters tied up the story nicely, but I really would have liked to see Drell spending more time with the Weaselys. Of course, I'd also like to see the wedding, their kids, and anything else you'd care to write about them. So consider this a shameless plea for more!
Author's Response: Thank you so much! I'm glad you've enjoyed it. I have a few ideas for one-shots about their future life swimming around in my head, but nothing definite yet... so maybe!! :)
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 togetherâ”until a tampered Portkey changed their destination.
Yay! I love the way you write Scorpius and Rose, so naturally I'm thrilled to see more of them.
Author's Response: Thank you for being thrilled to see more of them. They've been in the back of my mind, waiting impatiently to come out and play. I just couldn't do the Lapland plot. Not enough conflict, heh.
