    Draco And His Wife Refused To Raise Their Children The Way They Were Raised

    From Redditor u/Adorable_Octopus:

    [J.K. Rowling said], "They had had high hopes of a girl whose family featured on the 'Sacred Twenty-Eight,' but as Astoria refused to raise their grandson Scorpius in the belief that Muggles were scum, family gatherings were often fraught with tension."

    Draco Married A Fellow Slytherin Whose Parents Forced Her To Fight With Voldemort In The War

    From Redditor u/Adorable_Octopus:

    [J.K. Rowling said], "Draco married the younger sister of a fellow Slytherin. Astoria Greengrass, who had gone through a similar (though less violent and frightening) conversion from pure-blood ideals to a more tolerant life view, was felt by Narcissa and Lucius to be something of a disappointment as a daughter-in-law."

    He Moved To The Country To Take Care Of His Sick Wife

    From Redditor u/scheneizel:

    I liked how much Draco had changed, to the point of defying his own illustrious family and living in the countryside with Astoria, to take care of her frail health.

    Scorpius was much more resourceful than Albus, who was portrayed in this story as just some kid with parental issues.

    He Was An Incredibly Smart Student

    From Redditor u/liquidcarpet:

    I remember hearing time and time again that his test grades were always second, just below Hermione. Aside from being a pretty skilled wizard he's also pretty good at Quidditch.

    I get the feeling that Draco is more "hands-on" smart than "book smart" though. Obviously he is book smart, hence his grades, but he's always able to figure out how to make things work ahead of time - the cabinet, all the methods to kill Dumbledore (even though they didn't work) (and some are convinced he didn't want them to work) in sixth year, his ability to shut down his "good emotions" in order to stay shielded from Voldemort.
