“astoria had an ancestor who was cursed and the curse was passed on to her, making childbirth very risky. despite this, she and draco made the decision to have a child, even after he told her that it didn’t matter to him if he ended the malfoy bloodline.”
Harry getting Albus the ferret and insists on naming it dragon. Ginny loves this. Albus is really confused but agrees. So then Scorpius sends Draco a letter talking about his new best friend and how his dad is so cool and he’s like “dad he has a ferret, his name is dragon”. And Draco is standing in kitchen muttering something that sounds like “Saint Potter, with his stupid face and his stupid scar”. Astoria reads the letter and she can’t stop laughing.
After the war, it got rare for someone to go talk to Draco at social events. Then this beautiful woman asked if he would like to have a drink. Although he had seen her smiling at him from a distance once or twice during that party, he still needed to check if Astoria’s attention towards him was real.
I feel like we don’t talk about Draco/Astoria enough ??
Like after the war Draco is basically hated on both sides because the death eaters are like “you’re a fucking coward and so are your parents” but everyone else is like “you’re a disgusting death eater” bUT here is this girl who fucking loves him to death and shows him light when he’s in a really dark place takes all the pieces of this broken boy and puts him back together and he loves her so much that he stands up to his PARENTS for her,,, (something he never does),,,and marries her despite what anybody thinks and they just love and care for each other so much that they lock themselves away from society and spend everyday together and decide to have a child for THEMSELVES. Not for the pureblood, not to continue the family name, for them and their love for each other. And Draco’s so devastated when she dies that he literally has to restrain himself e v e r y d a y from using dark magic just to spend one more fucking minute with her and I feel like their love is so overlooked and ??? Honestly I’m just really emotional about Draco and Astoria
Astoria Greengrass, who had gone through a similar (though less violent and frightening) conversion from pure-blood ideals to a more tolerant life view, was felt by Narcissa and Lucius to be something of a disappointment as a daughter-in-law. They had had high hopes of a girl whose family featured on the ‘Sacred Twenty-Eight’, but as Astoria refused to raise their grandson Scorpius in the belief that Muggles were scum, family gatherings were often fraught with tension.
