Meeting Death is the end for most, if not all living creatures. But what happens when it is not Death that sends you to your next great adventure? Rated T for death and gore later in the story. No ships, no yaoi, no bashing and no, this story does not feature a pink pony or flubberworms, seriously; why do you keep asking that?

Disclaim-her-him, if ever the Harry Potter universe was mine, do you honestly think I would need to post my musings here?... so to clarify for this once I do not own Harry Potter nor do i hold any rights to the Harry Potter Franchise (I wish I did, it would take care of a lot of financial problems) Nor do I own Naruto or Sasuke for that matter.
Prologue: A cloaked death
Harry was tired of seeing his family die for far too long now. Most wizards and witches were not aware of the fact that he had taken the Elder wand from Draco Malfoy back in the nineteen nineties. The few ones that were, well they were as dead as a wizard or witch could be. Though just three turns with the resurrection stone and they would be next to him as if they had never departed on their own next great adventure.
He knew it was finally his time. After almost three centuries of living peacefully after defeating Voldemort, even Dumbledore told him it was time for the next great adventure. That it was time to stop prolonging his own life, that it was time to let the deathly hallows vanish with him.
So as Harry was closing off the cave he had made in the Hogwarts Lake he was thinking about his plan to stop the elder wand from causing more death at the hands of power hungry men and woman. Merely snapping it in half would never work, it would mend itself given enough time, he had tried that seven decades ago. No snapping it would never work, so after that option had failed he had tried to destroy it by using so much magic continuously it would somehow overload, but apparently not even fiendfyre that was cast for a mere four days nonstop in a row could not stop the elder wand.
No he had thought about it all wrong, the wand could not be destroyed. The only way to make sure it was not ever used again was to either hold it on him for forever or to make it kill its own master.
So Harry was going to cast the curse he had promised himself to never cast again after he had killed Ginny's murderer, but first he had to seal off the cave just in case his plan would not work.
"Protego Locus... Fidelia Fidelium... Obitus Voluntas" he invoked casting spell after spell to ensure this cave would never be entered by a living creature.
After having cast his second last curse, he sat down in the chair he had transfigured. The man that looked no older than twenty-five put his hand in one of the many pockets his robe held and took out a very special ring. Harry's eyes seemed to radiate as he looked at the cold stone that was placed in the ring. After looking at it for a few minutes he had decided to use it for one last time. He placed the ring on his finger he turned the stone three times.
"Are you ready for this Harry?" said a red headed girl. "Are you sure about this my love?" Harry looked at his very wife with eyes that held no tears of sadness, that held no pain in them anymore, the deathly green eyes of Harry Potter were filled with tears because of tiredness and as he was about to speak they started to roll down. "After all this time, you still love me, despite the atrocity I have become." harry vanished the tears away with a silent 'evanesco' . "You know, I think I have taken upon me the curse of the deathly hallows for long enough. He can have them back. Death will not be able to find them but I will finally be able to go to the other side."
"I understand." Ginny said, almost caressing his cheek. The ghost white hands did not allow her to touch him but to Harry it felt like they did. "Then I shall await your arrival on the other side with open arms Harry, a lot of people want to see you again" she said rubbing slowly over her belly and fading away.
"Hmm, as always, you do not let me say farewell" Harry said as he pulled his cloak of invisibility over his head, knowing that now not even death, as he had come to know the entity, could find him or his hallows he smiled to himself knowing that he could finally rid this world of these wretched items.
Harry, while still under his cloak, pointed the end of the Elder wand to his heart. And while the universe was drenched in a feeling of utter doom Harry said his final two cursed words. A huge green light appeared out of the Elder wand, and if anyone could have seen who entered the cave after the-boy-who-lived died they would have seen death shaking his head in amusement.
Because though death could not see the human under the cloak, another entity could. And that entity had big plans for this human, very big plans indeed.
AN: This is my first story ever so I will most likely make a lot of beginner mistakes, either choose to continue reading despite this or stop reading now. This was the prologue which was rather short but the following chapters will vary in length. I will not give many spoilers but I have to tell you that this story will not, and I want to emphasize 'not' have any harry/anyone pairings other than Ginny that is.
I love reviews and if possible shall respond to them individually as soon as possible, so any question non-spoiler orientated will most likely be answered.
I want you to read this story with an open mind because some of the things that will happen will feel out of place, but I want you to know that I have a reason for (almost) everything.
