Where Are They Now . . .
Because I know my readers will want all the details on what happened to everyone after the Epilogues and all the information about the children, I've put together a little 'Where are they now' list:
After fighting alongside Mia and Draco in the Wizengamot as the official representative for the werewolves, Remus finally finished his book, Lies About Lycanthropy, that Sirius and Mia had been begging him to write for years. The Lupins remained at The Den, continuing to work with other werewolves within the Lycanthrope Sanctuary. Tonks rose up in ranks alongside Harry, eventually becoming Head of the D.M.L.E. Edward Remus Lupin aka Teddy (godparents: Harry and Mia), born April 1998 was Sorted into Gryffindor when he first attended Hogwarts in 2009 (yes, I know this differs from later released canon, but as with a lot of this story, some of new Pottermore canon was released after this story was originally written). His sister, Hope Hermione Lupin (godparents: Sirius and Narcissa) born January 2000 was Sorted into Gryffindor in 2011.
Draco and Astoria married shortly after she graduated Hogwarts in 2000 and set to work on the Malfoy Children's Home to help repair the damage done to families because of the war. Astoria managed the home quite well with assistance from Narcissa and Daphne, while Draco worked hard in the Wizengamot to repair the Malfoy name. They welcomed their son Scorpius Hyperion Malfoy (godparents: Sirius and Mia) in September 2001 and he was Sorted into Slytherin when he attended Hogwarts in 2013.
Neville married Hannah Abbot and took over for Professor Sprout, becoming the youngest Professor at Hogwarts. Hannah bought the Leaky Cauldron, taking over for old Tom.
Theo married Luna, reclaimed his family estates, and worked beside Draco in the Wizengamot to repeal old prejudiced laws against Muggle-borns. Luna, to Mia's pleasure, took over the operations of the Daily Prophet until she gave birth to twin boys in 2009, thus breaking the family tradition of Seer witches who would lose their mother at nine years old.
Ron stuck with his Auror career, specialising in Muggle related incidents and worked alongside the Obliviation squad, determined to have his own career separate from Harry's. He and Daphne welcomed Rose Laurel Weasley (godparents: Draco and Astoria) in April of 2002, who was Sorted into Gryffindor when she attended Hogwarts in 2013. Hugo Arthur Weasley (godparents: Harry and Ginny) arrived two years later in April 2004, and was Sorted into Gryffindor when he went to Hogwarts in 2015.
Harry was named Head of the Auror Department at the young age of 27. Ginny, in between pregnancies, refused to let motherhood keep her from pursuing her dream of being a Chaser for the Holyhead Harpies. Dobby was overjoyed that Ginny and Harry trusted him to look after the kids. James Sirius Potter (godparents: Ron and Mia) was born February 2000 and Sorted into Gryffindor when he attended Hogwarts in 2011. Albus Severus Potter (godparents: Neville and Luna) was born July 2002 and Sorted into Slytherin (as Mia predicted) in 2013. Lily Luna Potter (godparents: Sirius and Tonks) was born August 2004 and Sorted into Gryffindor when she attended Hogwarts in 2015.
Mia eventually went back to Hogwarts to speak with the portrait of Albus Dumbledore. He apologised for his mistakes and, because of Jamie, she forgave the man, though her occasional visit with the portrait of Severus Snape was much more pleasant.
Cornelius Fudge, bankrupted by Mia's actions in the Wizengamot, was forced to seek refuge in the Muggle world where he took on a job as a grocer in the same shop that Remus once worked at.
Mia and Sirius paid regular visits to Petunia and Vernon Dursley until they felt the couple had finally paid for their actions against Harry. Their memories of their time in the cupboard under the stairs was Obliviated, and they were allowed to retire in peace.
Dudley Dursley, thanks to Mia and Sirius's help, graduated from University where he met and married a young girl and raised a family of three.
Dolores Umbridge spent fifteen years in Azkaban due to her crimes and, half-crazed, attacked Mia in the middle of Diagon Alley when she was released. Mia fulfilled her promise by burying her . . . in the Black Lake. Charges were not filed against Mia in the disappearance of Dolores Umbridge, but anytime she visited Hogwarts, she stopped by the lake to pet the Giant Squid in thanks. She took to feeding him chocolate galleons instead of the real thing (which, despite her threats, she only fed to him once).
Mia worked hard to fight for werewolf and house-elf rights in the Wizengamot, but stepped aside to become a Healer for the Lycanthrope Sanctuary, working every other day of the month at St. Mungo's in the newly opened Dorea Hope Ward, for Muggles.
Sirius purchased a Muggle motorbike shop and spent his days enjoying life and ignoring Narcissa and Andromeda's pleas for him to act as a proper Head of House. Mia did his job just fine for him.
Tilly helped to raise Sirius and Mia's children, occasionally overstepping to tell Dobby how to properly bring up Potters.
Regulus Charlus Black (godparents: Harry and Ginny) was born August 2000 and Sorted into Gryffindor in 2011 to join his fellow Marauders James Potter, and Teddy and Hope Lupin—Marauder's Map and Invisibility Cloak in tow.
Carina Dorea Black (godparents: Draco and Luna) was born in January 2002 to a wizard father and a Muggle mother. After an accident killed both of her parents she was put into the Muggle system until a bit of accidental magic had the Obliviation squad sent to clean up her mess. Ron, seeing her, immediately brought her to Draco and Astoria. Sirius and Mia adopted her in 2006, and when her brother Regulus gave her the Black/Potter family necklace, it provoked a Familial Bond, making Carina officially a Black. Carina was Sorted into Slytherin alongside Albus and Scorpius in 2013.
Pandora Mary Black (godparents: Remus and Tonks) was born in December 2007 and Sorted into Slytherin when she eventually attended Hogwarts.
My Big Giant Thank You Letter . . .
When I started this story, I never imagined it would become what it has. Fluffpanda and I would joke in the early days of writing and say, "Wouldn't it be crazy if we got up to like 75 chapters!?" Our notes on GoogleDoc would likely take someone who'd passed their NEWT in Ancient Runes and Arithmancy to properly decipher and organise.
A big thanks to all those who have helped to Beta this story over the last several years. Whether you helped to edit one paragraph or the whole story eighteen times over, you are amazing, and I am forever grateful.

Thanks to the people who have created beautiful fanart, videos, playlists . . . The people who have sent me things (most especially thank you letters telling me how the story helped you in a time of need, because that's the whole reason I keep writing). And to the crazy people who have even gotten DoT tattoos (I count myself amongst you, you beautiful inked weirdos). It may not be a published book or something you can buy in a store, but you all helped to fulfill a dream of mine of writing a story that could make such an impact.
You're the song.
