Re: Theo and Scorpius
"That's not necessarily a good thing, you understand that right? Not in a society that is made up of twenty-five people," he said, gently. "I don't have to talk myself into anything and you shouldn't either. If you don't want to, then you shouldn't." He snorted. "Suspicion is as good as proof around here, but I can agree about the international stage. We need something to press them, although I can't really blame them, considering what's happening in this castle at this very moment."
Scorpius smiled. "It really kills you to do things how they are meant to be done, doesn't it? You enjoy driving people crazy with the vagueness." He rested his head back, snorting. "Do you really think that with someone like Mr. Potter knowing and proving are any different? I'm not telling you what to do, but consider how harder life can be if you have him on your case. He comes with a lot of people. On the other hand, I don't think he'd punish you for something that you would have done in your future. He's rather fair that way."
That was true, Scorpius never associated Theo - this Theo - to his father's generation. "You don't sound like them. They are all about rules and survival. You are about causing mischief. If you were a Norse god, you'd be Loki, while Mr. Potter would be Thor." The warning wasn't unwarranted. "I know, I've told myself how stupid I am plenty of time. I will not pet strange creatures in the future."
Scorpius laughed. "I'm not normal either. I've been wearing women's clothes since I was a child. I just- I keep going back and forth in my head, and Dad is pretty awesome." He hoped that Draco would say no, though. It would make the choice easier.
"Not too different from what I was. I know that it's never going to be exactly the same, but close enough. The problem is that close to before can go either way." This was much easier when it was just a dream.
