* AmbiguouslyBrown: Played with, but mostly averted. Several characters are described as having brown skin without a specific ethnicity, but their surnames or relatives usually give clues. Professor Shafiq is implied by his surname to be of Middle Eastern origin, though he's also Very British. Elin Haksar can be assumed to be of Indian origin from her surname, although the early reveal that she is [[spoiler:Cho Chang's daughter]] clarifies that she's half-Indian, half-Chinese.

-->'''Lyra:''' ''[to Rose]'' Yeah, Scorpius's family is pureblood. But you know who gives me a hard time about being Muggleborn? About not knowing how magical things work? Isobel and Rupert and ''you!''..."So don't you dare go throwing 'he's a pureblood' around like it makes you better than him! He's not a Death Eater and ''you're not a hero!"''

''Returning'' is an in-progress Harry Potter Next Gen Fic by troper [=GlassCatOwl=]. It starts pretty much the moment the Epilogue left off, only from the perspectives of Scorpius Malfoy and Rose Weasley. An incident with Rose’s cat gets the two of them off to a bad start, only made worse by the fact they’re sorted into the same house. The fic covers their first year at Hogwarts, which turns out to be rather eventful — much to their headmistress’s displeasure.
