This fanfic follows canon up through Half Blood Prince. As I am not a Seer, I may have some characters around that won’t be here in Deathly Hallows. Please bear with me as this was written before the release of J.K.R.’s final installment. Also, you may find some of the characters OOC, that is only because I see them slightly different than JKR does.
I've made some slight changes to this story.
