this never gets old
SANDRA BULLOCK IS MY QUEEN
The manor is quiet now. The library (young Draco’s favourite room for its shadowy nooks and its forbidden shelves) gathers dust, and the books no longer rustle forlornly from their places on the ground.
The ministry was enthusiastic in its raid - for funds, for Dark objects, for anything that could be twisted into damning proof, no matter Potter’s testimony. The Malfoys must be punished for the shame they brought to the Ministry, if for nothing else.
Draco leaves the books where they are, to be a testament. They remind him of his mother. She too seems discarded, still herself and yet marked by time and grasping, angry hands.
The house-elves are gone. They had to give them up, as per Granger’s request, so Draco takes his meals on the back balcony now, by candlelight, drinks from chipped, aged crockery from when he was a boy. Simpler days, it reminds him of. It suits the manor too, now; old, faded, chipped, full of history.
Draco does not mind, not like his mother. The manor is quiet. The manor reflects the rot that had invaded it. The manor will grown green again. All it needs is to breathe and be still.
(written and submitted by the supremely talented petrichorlore. This is so simple and yet so beautiful, tinged with regret. It’s a lovely denouement to Draco’s story, well-written and sympathetic and delightful.)
