    A Brief History of a Beautiful Friendship

    A Brief History of a Beautiful Friendship by Gingeraled

    Summary: “That’s when you decided you had to keep her close by. She was a Weasley and a Gryffindor, and a half-blood at that (which only really mattered when you were speaking to Grandfather) but she had managed to beat a Malfoy.” Oneshot, 2,489 Words.

    Why You Should Care: A lot of authors have jumped into giving the next generation whatever personality they see fit, but I love Gingeraled’s Scorpius Malfoy. He’s breaking away from his family’s legacy, but is still so… Malfoy. Rose Weasley is good as well. This isn’t a long and well-developed romance, but it does lead up to the point without throwing it at you incongruously. One of the best versions of this pairing that I’ve seen.

    Why You Might Not Care: It’s next gen, it’s Scorpius/Rose; you might not be into that kind of thing. It’s fluffy; you might not be into that kind of thing. Also, there’s a little bit of PG-13 talk for about four lines which just… doesn’t seem to fit with the fairly innocent tone of the rest of the piece. However, that’s brief, and not nearly enough to offset the entire fic.

      Oooh, yeah, I’ve read this before (at your rec, I believe). Yeah, it was kind of jarring how it was like “fluff fluff fluff COCK fluff fluff.”
      But, yes, good rec.

      Hey, great rec! I really am not into fics about the trio’s kids, but this was well done (although I do see you point about that whole PG-13 paragraph)
      It also kind of reminds me of another Rose/Scorpius fic I really like (the only fic about the second generation that really caught my interest): “Now or Never” by queenb23.

      Yeah, this was actually written by a friend of queenb23’s as a gift for her, so I see where you could draw the connection.

      I really like this piece. I adore Rose/Scorpius. I was slightly put off by the Ron/Hermione parallels (McLaggen and Wingardium Leviosa). I wonder if they were intentional.
