After the war, reconciliation between enemies is necessary to create a better future, one that is only possible if one embraces the past. Begins during the final chapters of Deathly Hallows, ignores the epilogue. Will eventually be Harry/Draco.
Harry Potter, his friends, his enemies, and the lovely world they live in all belong to JK Rowling.
Thanks to rosskpr for beta reading, and giving good suggestions. She has been very patient-- she sent me back the notes on this chapter two months ago(!), but illness and other real life interruptions kept me from acting on those suggestions until now. Thanks to my readers for their patience, too, assuming you have not given up on this story and me.
Comments are always welcome. I find they inspire me to write further, knowing someone else cares about the story.
On to the Chapter:
Chapter 1 (If you've not read the story yet, start Here...)
Chapter 16 (if you missed the previous chapter, click here)
Chapter 18 Part 1 (Onward!)
