Dating dads book
And they will probably have ketchup stains when they show up there, too.
You see, to come see you, they had to feed their kids corn dogs for dinner because they were already running ten minutes late.
He didn’t need to date, and he refused even to contemplate the word “boyfriend.” (Draco shuddered at the mere thought.) He certainly didn’t need a partner found through a Muggle dating service. One could do a similar thing to determine sexual compatibility and personality compatibility. Even a test that imitates a Boggart–you know, the person’s greatest fears, to make sure that the two people wouldn’t clash. He’d been momentarily distracted from his boredom by his marriage to Astoria, the birth of Scorpius (ten months later), and conflicts with Astoria as they attempted to negotiate ways to make their marriage-of-convenience work for the agreed upon five years. He invited me to come over one night after Scorpius is asleep.”Hermione’s eyebrows raised until they were obscured by her voluminous hair. “I better go—I don’t like to leave the kids too long.” She stood and hugged everyone in turn. That atrocious hair, stupid scar, Muggle clothes, intense eyes.”Draco, eyes closed, sat still.“Now imagine another man there. It’s in your power.”Draco just shook his head minutely.“Take the damn test,” Pansy said, and then her head was gone from the flames. “I hoped that you, at least, had seen me interacting with Scorpius and realised that I’m trying to raise him differently.”Harry sipped his drink, then sighed. But the pain and frustration and confusion on Harry’s face were evident, and Draco found, with a sigh, that his desire to make Harry understand somehow transcended his anger. I used to have nightmares of when she was tortured in the drawing room while the rest of us stood around and watched.
You think fucking a Muggle is going to solve my problems.”Pansy threw both hands into the air. I’d volunteer myself, take one for the team and all, but I know how you feel about tits and fanny.”Draco ignored her. I just needed to rant about it a bit, and you already helped with that.”The two women returned shortly, Levitating a tray of tea. He could feel cold anger coursing through his veins, overcoming the effects of the minutes-old Calming Charm, as if Harry’s words were a potion he’d been forced to drink. I’m half convinced there are wizards behind the whole operation. Haven’t spent much time reading about Muggle rockets.”“You should,” Draco said with a grin. “You’re on.”After a moment, Draco angled his whole torso towards Harry. And they were both more than happy to oblige.“I don’t know much,” Harry admitted. He seemed much older than his thirteen years sometimes. It was hard to reconcile with the Draco he knew now—still a prat, sure, but not like that.

The screen shone with a twee blue logo that read, “Ok Cupid.”“I don’t understand,” Draco grumbled, “and I refuse to cooperate.”“You are a,” Pansy paused, moving an electronic contraption on the desk, “gay,” she clicked, “man,” click.“What is it going to do? ”“Sorry, darling, but Rich Blond Genius and Slytherin Bastard were taken.”Draco sighed. ”“Are you inquiring as to the frequency with which I cast a Toothcleaning Charm? I’m putting twice a day.” She stopped and turned her shrewd brown eyes on him. How do they hoodwink Muggles into thinking these questions serve as a proxy for romantic or sexual compatibility? “Maybe they don’t think it’s a true proxy for compatibility, but rather the closest they can get to a proxy. “It’s a shame, really, because there are so many magical tests one could use to get an accurate proxy for compatibility. “What’s Malfoy up to these days, besides taking his kid to the park? “I think I asked him that, but I don’t really remember what he said. ” Harry sat up straighter, as if preparing to tell a compelling story. Ron turned his head to look at his sister and then his wife, who each returned his look.“Did you get on with him when you ran into him at dinner the other day? ” Ron said, looking between Ginny and Harry.“Yeah, we got on fine. “I hoped it was obvious, to you at least, that what happened during the war showed me the myriad ways in which I had been an idiot. It’s just…hard to adjust sometimes.” Harry looked awkwardly at his drink. I have nightmares about that day, too, sometimes.”“I have nightmares about lots of things, Potter.”Harry flashed a pained smile and raised his glass. Cheers.”Draco raised his glass, meeting Harry’s eyes briefly.“Er,” Harry said, eager to change the subject, “why does Scorpius love space exploration? I think Dumbledore sent him on missions.”Teddy nodded, his turquoise hair glinting in the sun, and turned back to his work. Harry ruffled the turquoise hair and went back to the counter, where he had left a knife chopping vegetables. ”Harry smiled, raised his wand, and turned his oldest son’s hair turquoise for the fifteenth time that day.
May 2010 Pansy pushed Draco into an office chair in front of a Muggle contraption she called a “computer.” “Look.” She pulled up a second chair and rubbed her hands together mischievously. Pansy spoke without even looking at Draco, the strange blue light from the computer reflecting on her face. After a few moments she announced, “Your username is Rich Blond Ferret.”“Excuse me? Three or four times, most days.”“I’m not sure we should put that. “So the computer asks the Muggles a series of preposterous questions and then matches them to a person to date? They sat and poured cups for each of them.“So, Harry,” Ginny said casually. ” Hermione asked, her eyes carefully on her tea cup.“Yeah, get this! He sat with his own drink on the chair across the room, his face carefully blank, and crossed one long leg over the other. “He lived with Sirius at Grimmauld Place and was part of the Order. Merlin.” Harry laughed, recognising the thirteenness that marked Teddy’s behavior, but that didn’t quite mask his pain. In that way, he reminded Harry of Remus, which never failed to make Harry’s chest ache. Harry couldn’t imagine what school would’ve been like if one of his parents had been a werewolf, on top of it all.
