Aww. This was really cute and sweet!

It's a take on Rose and Scorpius's friendship (and, ultimately, relationship) that I've never seen before. That's not to say it isn't plausible, of course - at first, I was confused because the Malfoy Manor is nowhere near where Rose's family would be likely to live, but then I realized that Scorpius was unlikely to be living at the Manor, since presumably Lucius and Narcissa are still alive, and given that the Blacks lived in the center of London, clearly the presence of Muggles isn't the worst thing in the world to blood-conscious wizards as long as they can avoid them.

Then it made sense to me, which was especially cool because you made me think about little details I usually don't.

I liked the way you captured their personalities - they both came off as very believable six year olds. Rose was definitely a little bossy and self-assured, and Scorpius was pretty easily talked into doing what Rose asked. I found that really interesting, especially since it's clear that neither of them are anything carbon copies of their parents. Draco certainly wasn't a great humanitarian, and while Hermione could be bossy, I can't imagine her ever telling someone she didn't know to help her with something or she'd "bop them on the nose." It was great. I also liked the fact that at the end, I could see bits of that in their older selves, which was nice and provided great continuity.

My only issue was that while at the end it was clear that Rose and Scorpius had been in the Pensieve, during the the actual scene where they met I found it a little confusing. I wasn't sure who the two people were, but there was so much focus on them that it was a bit hard to ignore.

Other than that, though, excellent job. I really enjoyed this.
