in all seriousness
i think fleur and hermione would spend several years in france
and they wouldn’t move to england until they have kids, and when they do, fleur teaches them perfect french and they’re little wee bilingual children
so whenever the kids want to tell fleur something “secretive” they tell it to her in french
and it isn’t until they’re 10 when hermione just breaks into laughter because they’re whispering french back and forth and she’s just like
"your mother and I spent four years in france, i can understand every word you’re saying"
cue mortified looks from chilren
"she’s the brightest witch of her age" fleur says, sipping her cup of tea
"yeah, sure muman"
and its not until the kids both go to Hogwarts do they hear all the stories about their moms because before they thought their moms were just witches and both were very modest about their past
so the first year they come back for winter break they’re like “mum you get attached by a trOLL?!?!”
and the second year “unCLE HARRY FOUGHT A SNAKE?? YOU WERE PETRIFIED??”
and by the forth year the teachers are like “oh and fleur delacour came from beauxbaton” and the kids are like “we know, we know, mums told us the story of how they met a million times”
until they come back from winter break and is like “Maman yOU FOUGHT A DRAGON???”
