child cry

3

“The odd thing is, Harry,“ he said softly, "that it may not have meant you at all. Sibyll’s prophecy could have applied to two wizard boys, both born at the end of July that year, both of whom had parents in the Order of the Phoenix, both sets of parents having narrowly escaped Voldemort three times. One, of course, was you. The other was Neville Longbottom.

You know what makes me want to cry? Draco Malfoy in sixth year. Remember you had to sit by yourself at school for a minute, or listen to your parents argue while you sat upstairs hugging you knees? Now imagine your weren’t sat for a minute, but a whole year, and you knew it wasn’t going to change. Imagine your parents arguing, not over who did the dishes our why they’re late home, but over a sociopathic murderer who you’re sharing your house with. Imagine having to kill your teacher. I can’t even try to imagine that but what I can imagine is how lonely he was and and I’m crying again.

{The vet told this user their budgie was a ‘sub par specimen’ because one of his nostrils is too large and the other is too small, plus his beak is misshapen. this prompted the user to cry directly onto their budgie son}

Things Draco Malfoy said in the Cursed Child:

• “Never really fancied being a Ministry man. Even as a child. My dad, it’s all he ever wanted — me, no. (…) Mainly I wanted to be happy”

• “Astoria was frail. (…) I didn’t want to risk her health, I said it didn’t matter whether the Malfoy line died with me — whatever my father said”

• “I think you have to make a choice — at a certain point — of the man you want to be. And I tell you that at that time you need a parent or a friend. And if you’ve learnt to hate your parent by then and you have no friends … then you’re all alone. And being alone — that’s so hard. I was alone. And it sent me to a truly dark place. For a long time”

• “My son is in tears and I am his father and so I am here to ask why you would keep apart two good friends”

• “We have to find them — if it takes centuries, we must find our sons” 

• “Maybe the black cloud Bane saw was Albus’s loneliness. His pain. His hatred. Don’t lose the boy. You’ll regret it. And so will he. Because he needs you, and Scorpius, whether or not he now knows it”

• “Our child, Scorpius, was born … it was the best day of both our lives”

• “I would sell my soul for another minute with Astoria”

• “I need my son back with me and safe” 

 • “It is exceptionally lonely, being Draco Malfoy. I will always be suspected. There is no escaping the past”

• “We can hug too if you like” 

 

 

Things he did not say:

• “There are times I wish you weren’t my son”

This is so, so important. The way adults react to a child’s passions and ambitions can often shape the way the child sees themselves. It’s crucial to encourage them wholeheartedly, especially if the child is prone to beat themselves up about the little things anyway.

Gordon Ramsey is a treasure

he comes off harsh to adults, but I respect people that respect children. I love this man.

he comes off harsh because those adults are in the culinary industry, they’re not supposed to mess up, they are trained, he understands that for these kids, this is very often a learning opportunity, so he is going to be much less harsh, and even sweet to them because its often that they dont know better when they mess up. 

dodie

dodie is a talented kind and gentle ray of sunshine who tries to tell that having flaws is fine (yup naturally dat girl omg) and i love her with all my heart. it just warms me from the inside that i have ability to see this little star sharing her talent and work with the world she just makes me feel like i am sparkling because i see this smol baby having her friends love and i see everyone treating her for everything she does how the world even produces humans like dodie

There’s nothing that makes me more happy than remember that Draco and Astoria raised Scorpius in their own way, with so much love and happiness, without pureblood supremacy values. 

Like, thinking about Draco as a father is…heartbreaking, in some way. Haunted by his past, his bad choices. The war. And he doesn’t want to remember that anymore 

He doesn’t want his son to make allies, but friends, when he goes to Hogwarts. He doesn’t want his son to feel obligated to be on top of the class just to bring down someone else; he wants Scorpius to feel proud of himself, and happy and free, because that’s all that matters. 

But most importantly, he doesn’t want Scorpius to suffer like he did. Because he loves him, he loves him so much.
