I have a lot of feelings after the Cursed Child, and they all revolve around Scorpius and Draco Malloy.
Imagine, after the Cursed Child, that it drives Albus mad that his best friend has to spend Christmas with just his father, as the rest of his family is dead.
Imagine him begging his parents to invite the Malfoys to their Christmas celebration “because there’s already so many of us celebrating why shouldn’t we add two more???”
Imagine Ginny channeling her parents and eventually giving in.
Imagine Albus sending a super excited owl to Scorpius telling him that they could spend Christmas together.
Imagine Scorpius being afraid to ask his dad if they could go, but doing it because he really wanted to go.
Imagine Draco hesitating a little and finally agreeing - just because his son was so excited about it.
Imagine the two showing up at the Potter’s house a few days before Christmas as asked and being ushered in with a huge smile by all the extended family of the Weasleys.
Imagine it being weird at first, but after watching Albus and Scorpius interact with each other, everyone begins to relax and accept the two Malfoys.
Imagine them having a great time. Imagine Scorpius and Draco having a good Christmas for the first time in years.
And imagine, further, that this starts happening every year. Without fail, Ginny ensures they’re invited, and they show up and stay for a few nights for the celebration.
Imagine Scorpius looking forward to it each year. And imagine Draco does too - except for the cramped quarters. Because, with so many people in one place, of course everyone would end up sharing rooms. And while sharing a room can have perks, Draco would hate it.
So imagine he gets sick of it after a couple years. And imagine that year, before Ginny can invite the Malfoys over, everyone in their extended family gets a personalized invitation to spend Christmas at the Malfoy manor.
Imagine Albus being thrilled, and Harry, Ron, and Hermione being nervous - because their last memories of the manor aren’t exactly good. But there is undeniably more space there. So they accept.
And imagine everyone in the Weasley family showing up at the door of the manor, incredibly nervous - but finding it all lit up and decorated for Christmas. Draco, also feeling nervous as he, too, remembers their last time in the manor, pulled out all the stops and decorated the house from top to bottom in Christmas decorations.
Imagine dancing, and eating amazing food (prepared not by house elves, of course, but by a combined effort of several people). Imagine merriment and joy - and at the end of the day, people don’t have to squeeze into cramped rooms and sleep on top of each other. The kids share rooms, the adults and couples get their own.
Imagine it being a wonderful time. Imagine it happening year after year - complete with personalized invitation - until the Malfoys are basically a part of the family, and younger children don’t remember a Christmas that wasn’t spent at Malfoy manor.
Imagine Draco and Scorpius looking forward to Christmas each year because they love having everyone over. Even as they get older.
Idk guys I have a lot of feelings about this
