Aah, I kind of wish this wasn't the end. The way you wrote the last part it seemed like a perfect way into a short sequel Maybe a one shot after Rose and Scorpius graduate? =P Lol, but seriously I've become invested in the characters you've created and I will miss your Astoria and Draco terribly.

Scorpius is like the perfect pureblood prince I expected him to be. Even though he seems to be influenced by Lucius I think that what Draco told him about taking his time to judge someone will stick with him. After all that Weasley girl is rather cute isn't she? ;) Oh and when I read the scene in DH when Albus is worried about being in Slytherin I thought that he would be in it. And I wonder, because here Scorpius is worried about not getting into Slytherin do you think he gets sorted somewhere else?

Also the entire scene Draco fighting with himself and that way he's supposed to act as his son leaves versus how he wants to act is so true to Draco's character. How he envies Astoria is so cute too! Haha! And Astoria still hates Ron? Lol! The small details about how pureblood society isn't what it used to be and how very few have the upbringing Scorpius did are in the perfect places and keep reminding us how things have changed after the War.

But that ending!! *sigh* I kept re-reading it because it was so beautiful. Funnily I had some classical music playing the background just then. Haha, talk about perfect timing! To think that Draco is still happy about the fact that Astoria agreed to marry him just makes me all warm and gooey inside.

Blah, I don't even have the words to express how I feel right now! I loved reading this story and I hope to read more of your (absolutely AH-MAY-ZING) work =D

Author's Response: Hello, again!

First off, thank you so much for being such a dedicated and supportive reader. It means the world to me, and it definitely made the process of writing Detox more fulfilling. Perhaps there will be some little one-shots related to this story, but I think I've written all of the novel-length Draco stories I have in me. You never say never, but it's close.

Scorpius isn't quite as brainwashed by his grandfather as he might seem at first blush. He knows that the old man is living on borrowed time, so to speak, so it's very important to Scorpius not to let him down. He's immensely loyal to his family, although perhaps not so much to the family's ideals.

The scene in King's Cross was meant to be a parallel to the scene with Harry and Albus. I was hoping to convey that even though the Malfoys have a different background and different ideals, there are parts of the experience that transcend blood status. In my mind, Scorpius does get sorted into Slytherin, even though he would have done well in Ravenclaw. The hat can sense the Malfoy traits in him, so it basically gives him the choice.

Draco does envy the closeness between his wife and son in ways that he would never publicly admit. He wasn't raised to be doting and affectionate; Lucius is the only father figure he's ever known, although I doubt his grandfathers -- Cygnus and Abraxas -- were any different. He *does* turn into a very doting grandfather for Scorpius and Rose's children, however. You'll have to read Conspiracy of Blood to find out about that, though. ;)

I'm so pleased that you liked the ending. I argued with myself a lot about that part. They both do end up very happy, at least until Scorpius falls in love with Rose.

Again, thank you so much for all of the lovely reviews. They were appreciated immensely!
