Many of you left really nice reviews that I haven't had a chance to respond to yet and since I'm currently *supposed* to be packing to go away for the holidays... it might be awhile before I do. They're still very much appreciated. Thank you and happy holidays!

15. Tying Up Loose Ends by Hypatia [ - ] (1619 words)
In order to keep a bit closer to JKR’s interviews, Scorpius’s mother has been changed from Pansy Parkinson to Astoria Greengrass. Chapter one has already been edited to reflect this change and the following chapters will be too. No other major changes to the story are expected.
16. A Few Trips Down Memory Lane by Hypatia [ - ] (3851 words)
The mental disorder warning is specifically for this chapter, due to an interview with Lockhart. I don't think it would be likely to bother anyone, but it seemed better to err on the side of caution.
17. Guess Who's Coming To Dinner by Hypatia [ - ] (4841 words)
Just so that it doesn't come as a shock when I finally update again... the next chapter will be the last one. Thanks for reading this far and I hope you all enjoy this chapter and the next!
