A/N: This may be a few parts long, I love the plot and backstory of this!

Alessia could remember the first time she met Draco Malfoy like it was yesterday. His family had come over to her home, Moretti Manor, and they had been told they were to get to know each other because one day they were to be married. She remembered a lot from that fateful day, the way his mother looked at you so lovingly, how you had to try your best to speak in all English because “it was rude to speak in Italian when we had company”. She recalled that the first thing she noticed when the small boy walked through the door was his bright blond, almost white, hair and his piercing gray eyes. She thought they were lovely. It was hard to believe that this wonderful day had been almost 13 years ago.

Sitting in the common room of the Slytherin dungeons, Alessia wrote a letter to her mother.

Ciao Mama,

How have you been recently? I feel like I haven’t talked to you in ages. Sixth year has been alright so far, I have had loads of homework every night! I was just wondering if you have talked to Narcissa Malfoy recently… I feel as if Draco has been distancing himself from me lately- actually he has been distancing himself from everyone. I’m just worried about him. I hope you are all doing well at home, tell the sibilings that I love them.

With amore,

Alessia 

As she placed down her peacock feather quill and handed the letter to her barn owl, Bruno, she heard loud footsteps coming into the common room. Spinning around to face the door, she finds the blond hair and gray eyes that she has loved since the day she saw them. “Ciao.” she called.

“Hello, love. How was your day?” Draco asks as he moves to join her on the couch. He lazily places an arm around her shoulders and pulls her closer. She noticed how much weight he has lost- his once muscular arm (from all that Quiddich) was now skinny and frail.

“It was fine. I missed you today though, where were you?” she questions. “I didn’t see you in any classes all day.” His face went into a state of panic.

“I- um- I was… in the infirmary all day. I wasn’t feeling well this morning.” He says. Alessia could tell that he was lying through his teeth- again. What was up with him? 

“Mi amore, if you weren’t feeling well you should have told me! I was so worried.” Alessia was lying, but Draco couldn’t tell. One of her strengths was being a great liar. It wasn’t necessarily good, but it came in handy in times like these.

“I’m sorry Alessia, I’ve just been… busy lately. I’m going to sleep, I’m so tired. Goodnight. I love you.” Draco says quickly, planting a kiss on her lips and beginning to walk upstairs.

“Wait- can I come with you?” she asks. By the time she is done her sentence, he has already made his way upstairs. Something was very fishy here and she was going to figure out what was going on.


Alessia woke the next morning with a start. She quickly got a shower, put on a bit of makeup, used a spell that her mother had taught her to straighten her hair, and slipped on her emerald and black Slytherin robes. She then proceeded to walk to the Great Hall, alone. The grand doors were opened, welcoming all the students of Hogwarts in for breakfast. Alessia casually waved to all her fellow Slytherin students as she made her way to the head of the table to find Draco. What she saw made her heart drop into her stomach. One of her best friends, flirting with Draco. She had her hands all over him and Alessia watched as she planted a kiss on his right cheek. The worst part- Draco seemed to be enjoying every moment of it.

 With no intentions of confrontation, Alessia watched for a few more moments before she saw him look up. Draco knew what she thought. He knew she thought he was cheating on her. Alessia looked into those beautiful gray eyes that were staring into her fierce green ones. Those eyes she had fallen in love with. Those eyes that she never wanted to see again.

 Overdramatic? Maybe. Alessia knew she needed to talk to Draco before jumping to conclusions about cheating but in her defense, it all made perfect sense. Everyone in their right mind knew about Pansy’s feelings toward Draco, and Alessia and Draco had been together for so long that she figured maybe he was bored of the same old Italian, brown haired, green eyed girl. It would even explain why he had been so distant recently. Immediately she took off- wanting to be anywhere but talking to Draco. She made her way through the corridors of the school, tears streaming down her face. She thought she had lost him when a strong hand wrapped around her wrist. His long legs were just too much of a match for her small frame of 5'3". “Alessia wait.” Draco pleaded.

 “No Draco, I don’t want to talk to you right now- ever again.” She demanded, pulling her arm out of his grip. He quickly caught up with her and grabbed her wrist again.  “Chi cazzo ti credi di essere? si pensa di poter semplicemente barare su di me e tutto andrà bene bastardo!” Alessia screamed.

 “What does that even mean Alessia- please just hear me out.” Draco was practically begging at this point because she was all he needed. He needed to tell her his secret because he needed her to get through this.

 “Oh I don’t think you want to know. Fine you have three minutes- go.” Draco took her by her hand and led her to the astronomy tower.

 “Alessia, my love, I am not cheating on you. I know it may look like it but I would never, in a million years mis-treat you. I know that I haven’t been the best boyfriend lately and I have reasoning but I just need you to know that I love you so, so much. Pansy was just all over me this morning and I have been missing you so much, I just needed some human contact I think. I understand if you’re angry but-”

 “Draco, it’s fine. I believe you. Now just tell me why you have been actually to strange lately.” Alessia said while taking his hand and sitting down against a wall with him. Draco was unsure of how to tell her that he had become a deatheater. So many questions raced through his mind he began to shake with fear. With no other way to tell her, as he just couldn’t get the words out, he began to roll up his left jacket sleeve. A skull like creature with snakes was engraved into his skin- the darkmark. Alessia watched as a tear rolled down his face and dripped onto the mark.

 “I-I had to do it. If I didn’t he was going to kill me, and my family, and most importantly- you. I wouldn’t be able to live with myself knowing that you were in danger if I didn’t do it. I understand if you want to leave me.” Draco cried. The tears were like waterworks now- a non stop river pouring down his face. Alessia knew he did this for the good of his family and her. This was why he was so distant from her, he was ashamed. She held the shaking boy in her arms, whispering sweet things in his ears to calm him down. He looked up to see her beautiful face, and Alessia proceeded to kiss away all of the tears on his face. 

 “My dear Draco, I am not going to leave you! I love you! I wish you would have told me sooner, amore, I could have helped you. I will always be by your side no matter what.” 

 “How did I end up with such an amazing woman like you Alessia?” Draco asked, wiping away his final tears. “Thank you.” He whispered, eyes starting to close as he fell into a deep sleep in his lovers arms.

 “Prego, mi amore.” Alessia whispered, falling asleep as well.

Just wondering whether you'd have any recommendations for fics where the doctor crosses his own time stream to see Rose after she's gone (post-doomsday or after a life together!)
