A warm, late spring breeze swirled around the train station, Platform 9 ¾. Rose Weasley had stepped off the train, fresh off her third year, hand in hand with Scorpius Malfoy. She was hoping to part before either of their fathers saw them together. Mortal enemies in Hogwarts, mortal enemies for life. But of course, inheriting her father’s lack of luck, Ronald Weasley, with an embarrassed Hermione Weasley trailing behind, stormed up to the couple, fury raging behind green eyes.

“Oh… Mr. Weasley,” Scorpius began, trying to make a good impression by holding out his hand.

“Get away from my daughter, you foul pure blood!” Ron shouted. Hermione buried her head in her hands, trying to hide from the scene.

“But, dad, Scorpius isn’t who you think-“ Rose stuttered, getting cut off by her overly protective father.

“He is exactly who I know he is! A filthy, rude, Slytherin by heart!” Ron raged, fiery red hair standing on end.

“BUT HE’S NOT IN SLYTHERIN!” Rose screeched, causing all mouths to drop. Ron’s furious eyes emptied to blank confusion. Hermione’s hands slid away from her face and stepped forward to see this miraculous wonder; the first Malfoy not in Slytherin. By standers even glared with question.

“Then… what is it?” Ron inquired, curiously staring at Scorpius face. He resembled his father so much, how could he not be affected by the curse of Slytherin?

“Ravenclaw,” Scorpius spoke up. Hermione’s eyes brightened, a clever boy like Scorpius would be perfect for her intelligent daughter, Rose.

“But- I’ve seen you in Slytherin robes!” Ron paced, trying to figure this all out.

“I bought them. I wear them around my father. At school I hang out with Gryffindors Rose, James, Lilly, and Albus, and Ravenclaws like Lorena and Lyzar, Ms. Lovegood’s kids. The Slytherins disgust me, and they always pester me about my blood lines and evil ancestors,” Scorpius explained sufficiently.

“Ok then… Let’s go Rose… Say goodbye to your friend…” Hermione said, baffled. She helped Ron carry away her bags while they greeted Hugo.

“Scorpius!” Draco Malfoy called through the bustling halls of the platform.

“ Um… Dad. Hi,” Scorpius stuttered. Rose gripped his arm; It was time.

“What are you doing with that Weasley girl? Didn’t I tell you about her?” Draco scoffed, piercing black eyes darting around Rose’s face; her physical appearance was too striking to her father to ignore.

“Hello, Mr. Malfoy,” Rose stated politely. Draco sneered in response.

“Isn’t it nearly impossible for you to fancy her? You know, Slytherin vs. Griffyndor?” Draco inquired, sounding more like a nervous dad than pompous pure blood.

“Well… Dad. I’m not in Slytherin or Gryffindor,” Scorpius began.

“Oh, don’t tell me you’re a Hufflepuff!”

“No, I’m not… I’m a proud Ravenclaw who socializes with Lorena and Lyzar Lovegood, Ravenclaw, Griffydors Victorie, Hugo, Rose Weasley, and Teddy Tonks, and to your most dislike, James, Albus, and Lilly Potter,” Scorpius proudly declared, leaving his poor old father wordless. But without warning, the dark eyes were more than piercing. They were angry, furious, fuming with rage. Just when it seemed as if Draco Malfoy would have a hemorrhage, a dependable source interlude.

“Malfoy! Back off my niece and her friend,” Harry Potter bluntly affirmed, fingering his wand in the back pocket of his jeans.

“Ah, Potter, my old… nemesis,” Draco spit, the venom in his mouth more evident than his receding hairline, “as you may have heard, my…offspring… is none the less an ‘intellectual’ Ravenclaw, and no longer welcome in the House of Malfoy.”

“He is more than welcome to stay with Ginny, James, Albus, Lilly, Teddy, and I,” Harry nodded to an illuminated Scorpius.

“Please, I’d rather him stay with Weasleys,” Draco groaned. Rose brightened, exchanging a joyous look at Scorpius.

“And it shall be,” Hermione stepped up, Hugo, Bill, Fleur, Victorie, Teddy, Ron, Lilly, James, Albus, and Ginny all behind as the Potter-Weasley-Tonks-Potter clan.

“Take the disgusting Boggart. Pansy!” Draco sneered and turned away, snapping for his teary-eyed wife, who had been observing the whole time, to follow.

“Welcome to the family, Malfoy!” James cheered as the big happy family Apparated back to the Potters’ for a celebration.

I read and reread and Googled the epilogue,and firmly decided Rose Weasley and Scorpious Malfoy were only too meant to be.

I agree it started out really well but then got a little childish and unrealistic at the end, still love the idea though! Love the kids point of view!

(*copying of the original book, I mean, as in using JKR's characters -- not copying of other fan fiction pieces.)

I don't think so, 'cuz it's just the same idea, and it's a pretty broad idea too. Like your story with Rose and Scorpius (which is really good by the way :D) is actually lots different from this. And it is fanfiction, so you can get away with some copying as it's just for fun. :)

I like the idea, and it was really a wonderful story, but I really think that after Hogwarts and the war, Draco Malfoy would've become more tolerant towards non-Slytherins. If you have any backstory to explain how he got this way, completely against all of them, even through the war, I would love to read it :)

I like this story. I love the idea with Scorpius as a Ravenclaw because I always expected him a Slytherin. Oh yes! I like James' last sentence "Welcome to the family, Malfoy!" It made me laught.
I think Draco's wife is Astoria Greengrass and not Pansy. And the Lovegood-children are called Lorcan and Lysander. But I think that doesn't really matter because it's only stuff J.K. Rowling told us after finishing her books.
After all... a great text. ;)

We don't read and write poetry because it's cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for.

lol I would give you an unbiased opinion of this article but I don't have one. I love DRACO! I don't think he is actually very evil at all, just had the wrong upbringing.

Prove it.

Why does everyone compare this to the books? Really, it was good as a stand-alone piece. You cannot emulate Rowling's writing what you did was great.

Yeah it is a little awkward, but what else can you really do with a great series like that? It's going to sound weird no matter how you write it. I thought you did a very good job.

I read this first before I knew what happened and didn't know that was how it was supposed to be sort of. Not Rose and Scorpius falling in love but that everyone got married and stuff. But then I read about the epilouge and read this again and it makes sense.

This is really not my best writing! I actually just finished reading the whole series a week ago, and now I read it and I cringe hahaha. So if you want more HP fanfic, wait until the next chapter of "James and Lily Lived" comes out!

If someone had written something like this, would it be plagiarism? Not just like, but having Rose and Scorpius together.

She's apparently still writing, but she said she's done with Hogwarts. I wish someone else could take the story on. It could go on forever I think.
