    All Our Tomorrows

    All Our Tomorrows by Sandrine

    Summary: Glimpses of Rose, over the years: she doesn’t know it yet, but it was always going to happen like this. Oneshot, 4,697 Words.

    Why You Should Care: It’s amazing how quickly ships can arise in a fandom after what amounts to a glorified list of names.  The last chapter of Deathly Hallows has spawned more pairings (both plausible and outlandish) than any other single chapter, and because we don’t know anything about these characters other than their parentage, it’s much easier to allow for “anything goes”.  Scorpius/Rose has become a nice outlet for the closet (and not-so-closet) Draco/Hermione shippers, and this, at least, I don’t find that unbelievable.  Life has a way of working out just this way sometimes.  The interaction between Rose and Draco is particularly on-model, I think.

    Why You Might Not Care: It’s a largely generic xxx/yyy ship fic with a few moments of character commentary, and while the writing is of good quality, it won’t blow your mind.  It pokes and prods at a family’s private stereotypes, but probably not nearly as much as it should.

      I adore this story. Rose/Scorpius is currently one my very favorite ships but I’m not even remotely a fan of Draco/Hermione (they just don’t seem plausible to me in any AU). The relationship is in the same vein as Romeo and Juliet. It’s also about how did the war change the Malfoys and how does that influence their newer generation. Maybe Scorpius’ mother didn’t let him turn out to be a total berk like his father.

      That was really cute. I’ll admit that I have a soft spot for Scorpius/Rose (and none at all for Draco/Hermione). After all, both characters are effectively OCs with canon names, so it doesn’t seem like too much of a strain to me to write their characters in such a way that the romance makes sense. Also, it allows for such fun family drama.
