I was thinking about dad Draco as usual, and i thought to myself, “Draco sees Scorpius as the best part of himself”. Which, he is!
Often times, i thought of that “part” as in, biologically a part of Draco. Now i’m thinking, what if it wasn’t biological at all? Draco, by choice and by parental influence, had a limited amount of agency to make his decisions ever since he was a child. Lucius thought for him, decided for him, and Draco was expected to follow his footsteps compliantly. So, what if, Scorpius was the first uninfluenced decision he’s made for himself?
What if, when his soon-to-be single mum friend Astoria came to him saying she was sick, he offered to adopt her baby and take care of him if something ever happened to her? Wouldn’t it be beautiful if it was Draco’s own, conscious choice to be a father, to devote himself to this pudgy little baby, simply because he loved him? Screw the Malfoy bloodline, screw the idea that parenting is inherently biological, screw his father fuming at the thought that he wants to adopt a halfblood baby. This is his son, and he’s going to love and protect him with all that he has, everything else be damned. Scorpius then, would be the best part of Draco’s soul and heart, and i just love the thought of that so much.

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.

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”

Draco is empty after Astoria dies. He feels even more alone than any moment in his life. Yet, he feels most afraid for Scorpius, because he hasn’t lost a lover, he’s lost his mom. Draco only knows one person who can help.
His friend Theo lost a mom. He lost his mother around the same age Scorpius did. He invites Theo over for dinner. When he walks in without a hug from Astoria, he knows. He walks up to Scorpius’ room, a knowing tear falling from his glistening eyes.
“I know.”
Scorpius falls asleep in Uncle Theo’s arms, and Draco knows, at least his son won’t be alone.

i was reading that ‘astoria wouldn’t raise her child to believe muggles were scum and that didn’t sit well with lucius and narcissa weh weh weh’ bit and i had this vision of someone calling astoria a blood traitor at the dinner table and she just doesn’t let it go and passive aggressively raises scorpius into a second arthur weasley while draco malfoy continues to be whipped by own family

Hermione vs Astoria
  • Blaise: You've got to choose mate. You can't keep them both!
  • Draco: But I fancy them both!
  • Blaise: You think you do but you don't. Don't think with your dick.
  • Draco: I do not!
  • Blaise: Come on then, just list down all the cons you have for the both of 'em. That way you'll see what you're getting into. Choose the one with the shorter list.
  • Draco: Alright... [scowls]
  • Blaise: Granger first. I'm sure you've got plenty of--
  • Draco: She's manipulative, she's an insufferable know-it-all, I was always behind her in class, she's a prude, a swot-- I hate how she bites her nail, when she thinks she can sing to save her life, when she squints her eyes when she insists that I'm wrong. That hair of hers she can't seem to tame, I mean sleekeazy's won't hurt once in a while! And thinking about my parents, I hate that she's a muggle-born.
  • Blaise: See? But take it easy now. Don't want to lose "insults" for Astoria now, do we? So, Greengrass then? I'm sure she's a lovely--
  • Draco: She's not Hermione Granger...
  • Blaise: ...
  • Draco: ...
  • Blaise: Err, there you go?
