AN: I do not own the Harry Potter universe. I am simply borrowing it for a fic. Enjoy!

Edit: I just rearranged the chapter a bit as I think some people might miss the last part I added on :)

A quick update- the dresses that Ginny and Hermione wore to the reunion ball/dance are on my tumblr :)

There's a page specifically for Experience on there :)

The last chapter! This is very short but it's just here to tie up and finish of the end of the story. Look at me saying this is short! At the start when I began writing this story this was my average chapter XD (Warning: Big thank you speech at the end) XD

Chapter 37

Hermione enjoyed her job as transfigurations professor and during the Christmas holidays Hermione stayed at Severus' house on Spinners End. She spent most of her holidays there afterwards.

Severus decided to renovate Spinners End instead of moving because he didn't want to run away from his bad past. He wanted to make a better future. With Hermione.

Lucius and Narcissa kept up their healthy relationship.

Remus and Tonks had a winter wedding a couple of weeks after the Christmas holidays ended.

Luna and Neville got engaged six months after Harry and Ginny.

Harry and Ginny got married in the summer. It was an outdoor wedding with a marvellous turnout.

Sirius and Regulus managed to mend their relationship. Regulus became a lot more outgoing in order meetings. And Sirius even managed to get along, (be civil) with Kreacher.

Harry, Ron and Hermione saw each other often despite their busy schedules and remained friends.

Tiffany and Michelle opened up a business together. Ginny got ready for her wedding there.

Lucius and Severus stayed friends and in a un- intoxicated state, Severus told Lucius about Hermione and their relationship.

Dean and Seamus stayed good friends and often helped Fred and George out at Weasley's Wizard Wheezes.

Fred and George kept their business going and the order meetings still happened every week in the stockroom.


Four years later: Hermione waddled into the kitchen and plucked her one year old little girl from the table, causing the floating spoon above her head to drop with a thud. She was six months along with another daughter and it was beginning to get difficult to chase after Emily. The wriggling little girl suddenly stopped and stared into Hermione's eyes as if they were the most fascinating things in the world. Her eyes were dark and expressive, just like her fathers. "Hello! What are my two favourite ladies doing today?" Severus asked walking into the kitchen. Emily immediately began wriggling again to get to her father and he picked her up with ease. Hermione's heart melted to see the look of utter adoration that came upon his face whenever he saw his daughter. The tense feeling in her back evaporated the moment he turned that same gaze towards her.

Six years later: Emily and Lila were the perfect mix of her and Severus. Emily had long straight hair just like her fathers, but it had the same colour as her. Lila on the other hand had wild curls that were jet black. Both girls had Hermione's features but had Severus' dark expressive eyes. Hermione couldn't help but smile as she watched Severus charm a rabbit teddy to jump around the room. "What are you smiling at?" He asked playfully. All of a sudden Hermione felt rather teary.

"Thank you," She whispered, "For being so amazing."

Severus looked confused for a moment but his eyes softened, "Thank you. For giving me all this." He said gesturing to the space around him.


This was quite short but it was there to wrap up the story and not just leave it hanging on the ending of the last chapter :) So this is the end of the story! :( I received lovely reviews on the last chapter, thank you guys so much!

Aaaaand considering this is the last chapter I'd love to see you guys review! If you haven't reviewed yet then please do so now. And to my lovely regular reviewers I'd like to hear from you guys too! :)

To the guest reviewer that said they were dissapointed in this last chapter: I'm sorry that it isn't what you expected and I did say that this last chapter would be little bullet points. I didn't want to write them getting married and having kids because I was only jumping ahead about a year or so. I love fics that have Severus and Hermione getting married but I didn't think it would be appropriate for this ending. I feel that they would move in together and take their time developing their relationship since it was a fast start. If you aren't satisfied with my explanation then here's a little extra... (The extra is that little bit that's above separated by a grey line :))
