Re: Theo and Scorpius
Theo's eyes widened with excitement and he grinned brightly. The idea did sound like a good bit of fun and he could keep that going for quite some time. "Needless to say I am on board for that. That sounds like a good cure for a boring day. " Petrification was a gruesome thought, and he shuddered slightly. "It's being trapped."
In an ideal situation he hoped he would return to find nothing. His home he had no doubt was still standing. He would have seen to that. But if there was anything to be found he'd hope to find a letter or some sort of writing. About his future self he had a lot of questions and a few concerns, and it seemed now was as good a time to consider how to best contend with that.
"We never had house elves. Father didn't have much trust in them, and I don't either to be honest. No ill will though, I'm just a little paranoid by nature. I just maybe might have some things to purge is all. I sometimes tend to push my luck a little when it comes to work I do on the side." He nodded in agreement. "You do sound like it, but we do know a thing or two."
"Then that's who you are, be who you are," he said without hesitation. "You can accept that and find some measure of fulfillment in life or live a life of compromise. And such a compromise will wear you down after time, and then it's nothing but regret."
There was a lot to consider. And that Scorpius was thinking about them all meant to Theo that he was very resolute in his desire to change. "If you marry insist they take your name. If you wish to pursue children by other means, let them have your family name. That can be fixed. So I wouldn't worry on that much. You can change your career to be women's fashions. It's less flexibility but who cares. If you like it, do it. As for your grandfather, I imagine that will be harder," he said with a shrug. "I could buffer some of that if you'd like. He does think well of me. But that will be harder. But Mr Malfoy has always put protecting his family above all else and he will adapt in time. He's adaptable, in enough measure to help in any case."
