I'll try to keep an open mind. While I'd like to read stories in which Hermione is paired with as strong a character as she is, I have a very hard time thinking of her with any of the Marauders or Lucius Malfoy. My daughter is 24 years, almost 25 and the idea of my princess going out with a 50 year old man, her father's age, kind of repulses me.
I have no doubt that there are couples (very few) with these many years difference living a happy life. Exceptions are just that, a blip nothing more. So, in spite of my misgivings, I'm going to pretend that Lucius isn't as ancient as he is and read on.
Someone wiped her memory and no one believed her but Lucius. There is a mystery to be solved and I have to assumed Hermione is in for a nasty surprise.
Yeah, I think that's always been my problem with pairing her with the older characters too, because I think of my daughter, etc. Then I want Lucius for myself...ha!!
