Summary:  This story follows the Battle of Hogwarts in the fantasy saga, Harry Potter. It considers how some of the main characters might have moved forward from those harrowing times. There's friendship, healing, relationship and growth toward the Deathly Hallows epilog nineteen years later. There are some attempts at humor and a few serendipitous thoughts included for good measure.

If you have not yet read the Harry Potter novels or seen the movies, you may find some of this story confusing. There are quite a few spoilers in this story. The world created by J. K. Rowling in the books far surpasses the movies in richness and detail. Time spent reading the books will be a rewarding experience.
