Aah, this was so lovely, Megan. Of course Scorpius wants a Weasley jumper, I want a Weasley jumper! You've captured the essence of needing to belong into a family so well here. Scorpius must adore the Weasleys because they function so much differently than his own lonely household. I can understand how the Weasleys don't let anyone in between them, but once someone gets in, he'll be pampered and loved like the rest of them. Adding Fleur to the mix was a great and logical choice. You're brilliant for touching upon that subject, I've never before thought of the possibility the treatment she's been getting in the beginning could upset her. I liked that she comforted Scorpius, it was very nice of her. It's funny how such a little thing can mean so much. I remember when I first read the Philosopher's Stone and when Harry received his jumper and just how strongly it warmed him at heart. And reading this story it just makes me think he was always meant to become a part of the family because he got the jumper so soon. :)

And then the ending just made me grin like a little kid because Molly winked at Scorpius and it was just wonderful. It's also sweet how even though the jumpers aren't exceptionally pretty, everyone loves and cherishes them, whether openly and warmly. They're much like family, chaotic and problematic at times, but we want it and we need and even though it's not perfect, we just want to snuggle it like snuggling the soft, warm jumper. Aah, now I am overcome with Christmas family feels. :)

This was a wonderful story, Megs, as always.

Author's Response: I got all excited when I saw you reviewed me ;) So good to see you back active on the site again! (((hugs)))

Thank you so much! I love my Weasleys, and the way I set up Rose and Scorpius as a couple in the Midnight Run series he's sort of in between fitting in and not fitting in around Rose's family. So of course he wants a jumper. And of course the person most able to understand that would be Fleur. I'm surprised more people haven't written it that way. It seems very logical to me, if Rose and Scorpius tried to get together, Fleur would be sympathetic, because nobody wanted her around either (well, maybe Ron, and obviously Bill), but she made a place for herself. I doubt she really likes Scorpius, since she did fight in the final battle and I imagine the connection between Malfoys and Death Eaters would be impossible to overcome in social settings, but I do think she'd understand.

The Weasleys are accepting eventually - longer for Scorpius than for others who joined their family, but there's a lot of history with those two families, so I think he did pretty good. I totally want a Weasley jumper. Wish I could knit! Ah Christmas. Thank you for reviewing! It means a lot to me :)
