Clearly I underestimated the gravity of the situation.
Mix one Queen Bee, James Potter, and a whole lot of drama - and things are bound to get complicated.

The customer standing in front of him is, quite possibly, the most beautiful man Remus has ever seen. Like, he looks like a model or something. He has long, black hair, flattened by water, and just the slightest amount of scruff on his face, and…
And a baby strapped to his chest.

The War revealed many truths about humankind...the most important of those truths is that all humans are innately inclined to violence and chaos. We are hosts to an entire horde of plaguing ailments like jealousy and greed and we lack the physical and emotional capabilities to cope with such diseases. That is how the War started. That is how the world ended. That is why there is a grand nothingness on the Outside, beyond the walls of the Sovereignty.
My name is Cyril Bernard and I play a highly important role in maintaining the peace and overall wellbeing of our wonderfully prospering society (despite what that Mark Van said because what does that peacebreaker know anyway).

"How would you feel about a free trip to France this summer?”
“That depends. What’s the catch?”
“It’s a trip with my family,” Marlene says.
She can’t quite bring herself to look Sirius in the eye as she continues, “I’d be introducing you as my boyfriend.”

In all honesty, Albus would rather be literally anywhere else than the wedding between the love of his life and his cousin.

Some young ladies dream of being the wife of a Nobleman, Ivanna Harris dreams of being the Nobleman that the young ladies are yearning to marry. While disguising herself as her brother works while they are children, Ivanna's becoming too feminine to be a believable boy. One day, a man named Roderick Gryffindor comes to their small village, and Ivanna leaps at the opportunity for adventure.
Albus is certain that he is his parents' least favourite child. James is a star quidditch player and Lily is some kind of Potions whiz with more friends than she knows what to do with.
So obviously his only option is to piss them off, if he can't please them. And what would piss them off most? Coming home and pretending Scorpius Malfoy is his boyfriend.
It's only for two weeks, what could happen?
