I'm too old (and the wrong sex) to like this stuff so much. My wife tolerates it. My daughter rolls her eyes at me. One son makes fun of me and my gay son doesn't know what to think. I like Harry/Ginny, but Rose/Scorpius is THE ONE TRUE PAIRING!

1 : Pride and Scorpius by oldershouldknowbetter     Novel
Rating: Mature   Chapters: 34   Reviews: 165

It is a truth, universally acknowledged, that a young witch in possession of prodigious talent, must be in want of a rival.

See what happens when a Rose full of pride (and not a little prejudice) meets a Scorpius full of neither.

Like P&P the romance will eventually come, but Rose has to fall in hate with Scorpius long before she finds out how much he really means to her.

2 : Harry Potter and the Final Year by oldershouldknowbetter     Novel
Rating: Mature   Chapters: 13   Reviews: 54

Harry Potter is going back to Hogwarts.

There's no Malfoy to make his life miserable. †There's no Snape, no Voldemort.

All he has to do is relax, learn magic and maybe spend some quality time with his new girlfriend.†

But before he goes back there's just a few things he has to take care of.†

NOTE: the warnings are mainly for right near the end of the story; most of the stuff for the first few chapters is fairly PG.†
