AUTHOR'S EXTRA NOTE: I've posted this fic on a number of other boards and got some fantastic constructive criticism, so I've taken that along with the criticism I got from my readers here to improve this fic. Hope you like what I did with it!
Author's Notes: First of all, for all of you who absolutely adored "Forever Charmed", the Charmed finale, and thought it was one of the best shows, if not the best show of the series and would be upset to see it written differently, you may not want to read this. But for those of you who like me wondered:
1) How both Piper and Billie survived that explosion at the end of Kill Billie Vol 2 without a broken bone
2) Why the Hollow didn't go out of Piper and Billie until a being of good and a being of evil said the spell on the Hollow's box
3) How Piper and Dumain, both non-cupids, were able to use a cupid's ring, which is used to amplify and direct a cupid's power
3) Why we only saw Piper and Leo as old and not Phoebe, Coop, Paige or Henry
4) Why Old Piper and Old Leo in the future knew what Piper and Leo were going to do, but Wyatt and Chris had no idea and neither did S6 Chris
5) Why Patty's idea of 3 generations of Halliwells tapping into the Power of Three worked, when only three sisters are supposed to be able to tap into the Power of Three
6) Why Grams didn't recognize Piper from That 70's Episode
7) Why Wyatt even had his powers in the future, if he'd lost them to the Jenkinses as a toddler
8) Why Henry wasn't part of the final all-generation hug
9) How the Charmed Ones were able to write down what would happen in the future when they hadn't lived it yet
10) How Leo, an ex-whitelighter mortal, could possibly handle magical children while trying to teach them
Well, this is my answer. I'm sure you'll find a hundred little things wrong with it. And I'm sure you'll find parts of Forever Charmed that you'll wish were part of this and that aren't (Ditto--but they weren't logical or consistent with the rest of Charmed) If reading this makes you want to do your own version of Charmed Forever (or whatever YOU want to call it)--GO FOR IT! Along the same lines, if someone has already done that and if there's any similarities between theirs and mine, it's purely coincidental, because I haven't read anyone else's yet--although I will! I hope you enjoy this and will let me know what you think!

I don't own anything Charmed--if I had, the finale would've been something like this! All of these characters belong to Spelling Productions and The WB. I would like to acknowledge the spoilers found at which I used as a basis for this story!
This story is dedicated to the memory of Aaron Spelling in gratitude for all the wonderful shows he produced, especially Charmed!
After using their newly-acquired Hollow powers to vanquish the Triad, Paige black-orbed her sisters in to the conservatory to find Billie and Christy coming down the stairs.
"We have been waiting for you," Billie told them, also Hollow-filled, her eyes black.
"Your wait is over," Paige, her eyes also black, replied.
"Where are your potions?" a black-eyed Piper wanted to know.
Christy, her eyes black, too, glared. "We do not need potions this time."
"Neither do we," Phoebe shot back, her eyes as black as the others.
Piper glared at Christy. "I knew you couldn't be trusted."
Christy shrugged. "You should have followed your instincts."
Piper glared back. "Next time, we'll know."
Billie smirked. "There will not be a next time," and holding out her hands, the Battle to End All Battles began Both sets of sisters held out their hands and shot streams of fire at each other. The mega powers collided and caused a cataclysmic explosion. Billie and Christy were blasted backwards and caught up in the fiery tornado. The Halliwells were also blasted backwards and swept up as well.
The explosion rocked the Manor, blowing out every window before the entire Manor blew up into a mushroom cloud. Mixed in the middle of it was the picture of the original Charmed Ones, shattered, the spirit board broken in two, the wicker chairs from the conservatory ripped apart, the stairs splitting.
No one could possibly survive such an explosion, but in the midst of all the destruction were signs of someone orbing out. There was just one problem--the orbs were as black as the Hollow-filled sisters' eyes!
Within moments, it was over. Debris continued to fall amongst the rubble and the dust settled, followed by an eerie silence. Just when everything seemed to be lost, someone orbed back--Paige! She'd panic-orbed and was safe! She started looking around, calling for her sisters, but the first ones she spot were the Jenkinses. Paige could see Billie, her blank eyes staring at nothing, her head lolling at a strange angle, her arms maybe buried, perhaps gone. Near her, Paige could see Christy in a similar condition, except it was her legs that couldn't be seen.
Paige glared angrily at her enemies, then turned her back on them, still calling out for her sisters. That's when she spot Phoebe's tatooed arm, still attached to her shoulder. Screaming, she ran to her sister and began digging her out, crying out when she realized that Phoebe was dead. Then she screamed again as she spot Piper buried except for her head and shoulders, her head lolling at a strange angle. Dragging Phoebe's body over to Piper, Paige began digging her oldest sister out, crying, moaning, keening as she did.
Taking both of her sisters in her arms, she began rocking them, kissing their eyes closed. "Don't worry," she assured them, as she kissed Phoebe's bone-white cheeks. "You won't go unavenged! Evil will pay!" She turned to kiss both of Piper's already-cold cheeks. "Don't worry about your sons, big sister! Evil won't touch either of them ever again, I guarantee it!"
Her pitch-black eyes glared at her enemies as she dropped her sisters' bodies and driven mad by both grief and the Hollow, she black-orbed out.
