Summary:

After the war, the survivors try to find a way to cope with the losses they have incurred and move into a future they have yet to create. As they try to find ways to save themselves, they realize that perhaps the best way is to save each other.

This story will eventually be Harry Draco Slash. It will probably take a while to get there from here. This chapter is rated for general audiences.

Finally!  Harry and Draco in the same place... however briefly.  More to come!  This chapter is in two parts, as it is too big for LJ to handle.

One of the things that has helped me get back on the writing horse is the Harry Potter Last Author Standing Challenge.  See my profile for more information.  I'll be posting some of the stories (all under 1000 words) that I wrote for it soon, but except for one, they are not in SPS-verse.  The one that is, I'll wait to post, as it contains spoilers.

Again and still: thanks to my betas [livejournal.com profile] ivyingarden and [livejournal.com profile] rosskpr . Their help makes this a better fic, between brainstorming, catching errors in grammar and canon, reviewing plot flow, and supplying encourangement to "write write write". Any errors after the two of them have combed through the work are from the author not paying attention (or being just plain stubborn)!

Other Notes:

This is one of the first scenes I wrote in this story, and it's been languishing as I caught up. 

In some ways, it feels like the chapters up until this point have been winding down from the final battle.  After the next chapter (which includes Remus' and Tonks' funeral, and a tiny bit of Harry and Draco interaction), I expect the flow to surge back up, with new things growing from the seeds that have been planted in the chapters so far.

Question:

I have been resisting writing update messages in this journal, keeping it to just the chapters as much as possible.  I do this because I imagine someone getting a flag that a new post is up in this journal, and then being disappointed that it is only a status update.  But without the status updates, a long gap like the last one might make some wonder if I've given up (no, I haven't!)  Please let me know if you prefer chapters and status updates, or chapters only.

Note:

This chapter was a challenge to write.  I redid the timeline five times.  Rewrote it a few times because my betas agreed that the early version wasn't what is should be.  Then Real Life kept interrupting, with taxes, home improvement, and strep.  But it is here!

Finally! We have some Draco in this Chapter, as well as a glimpse of what is going on at the Ministry. I still have several chapters in the hopper from NaNoWriMo that just need a beta read, some britpicking, and a touch of revising before I can post. Britpicking and comments and critique are more than welcome on this chapter as well.

Notes:

First: my profound apologies for taking so long to write this chapter.  It is a shift in views from Draco to Harry, and Harry was being ... non-compliant.  The particular combination of grieving and relief that Harry and the Weasleys are experiencing has been very hard to write.  I think I rewrote this chapter at least 5 times.  There will be probably 2 more chapters from Harry POV before we return to Draco.  I already have some of the Draco chapter written... it is just getting there! 

And for those who are worried:  no, this will not be Harry/Percy.

This story will eventually be Harry Draco Slash. It will probably take a while to get there from here.  This chapter is rated about the same as Book 7.

Notes:
This was a challenging chapter for me to write.   For the past two years, Lucius has been either in Azkaban, or esentially under house arrest with Voldemort using Malfoy manor and punishing Lucius and Narcissa for Draco's failures.   I am not sure I am completely up to the challenge of writing a PTSD Lucius (and to a lesser extent, Narcissa).  Please let me know if I have succeeded.   

This is the last chapter that overlaps at all with Book 7 (It overlaps with the last non-epilog chapter.  After this, we'll get some sections from Harry's POV as well (before this, all we needed was to read the books!)

Disclaimer
: Harry Potter, his friends, his enemies, and the lovely world they live in all belong to JK Rowling. The first chapter or two has some direct quotes from Chapters 31 through 36 of book seven peppered throughout, as it is Draco’s point of view of events we have already seen from Harry’s. After the final battle, we’ll be branching off.

I have several chapters already written, and will be posting them here after I proof them. I also have some scattered scenes from later on. Reviews and feedback would be most helpful in inspiring me to write onward!

After I get the whole story written here, I will upload it to a few fanfic sites.

CHALLENGE:  Can anyone think of a better name for this story?

Enjoy!
