FIC: Intervention (Rose/Scorpius, R)

Title: Intervention
Author: my_thestral
Prompt: Self-prompt
Pairing(s): Scorpius Malfoy/Rose Weasley (future), Ron Weasley/Draco Malfoy
Rating: R
Word Count: 42,619
Content/Warnings: [Spoiler (click to open)]One single adult scene in an otherwise G-rated story, stumbling upon a parent having sex, a slightly deceitful ex-Death Eater, a bunch of plotting children (featuring a ginger evil-mastermind-in-the-making), a clueless Auror with self-esteem issues, an overly-long proposal, and at least one unhappy parent.
Summary: There isn’t much to entertain an 11-year-old Scorpius Malfoy in his sheltered existence, other than secretly practising magic and listening to his father's daily rants about his working partner, a.k.a. "that colossal idiot” Weasley. But shortly before he embarks on his first year journey to Hogwarts, Scorpius stumbles upon his father's big secret that involves a certain someone his father has been pining for – and suddenly his father’s love life seems to call for emergency intervention. Now, what could an 11-year-old possibly do? Not much... but a bunch of 11-year-olds (or not quite) just might surprise you.
Author's Notes: My sincere and overwhelming thank you to my irreplaceable beta B. - I’d possibly be kicked out of fandom if this saw the light of day in its original limpy form. This will probably not be everyone’s cookie because it’s hardly packed with action and sex, but I wanted to write this type of story for a long while, and here it is. It’s for all of you out there blessed with kids! :)
