Guys, Can We Talk About Albus Potter And Scorpius Malfoy For A Second?

Warning: Spoilers and feels.

A lot of noteworthy things happen in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, but people can't stop talking about the relationship between Albus Potter and Scorpius Malfoy.

Harry Potter's son and Draco Malfoy's son hit it off immediately and become the cutest pair of Slytherin best friends to ever exist, practically.

Some people, however, have been pointing out that their relationship doesn't seem strictly platonic.

Which, by the way, apparently lasts for a full five minutes on stage and is gut-wrenchingly romantic.

Or when there was a lot of tension:

Or when they swapped some words about what they meant to each other.

Or when Scorpius got a little jealous:

There's already plenty of fan art.

And people are definitely imagining how their relationship would impact their ex-rival fathers.

TBH, some people are pretty annoyed that the play didn't go there.

But at least we'll always have fandom, where everything's made up and CANON DOESN'T MATTER.
