A/N: One year, two months, and fourteen days later, Lost Letters of Love has finally come to an end. It has only taken 18,134 words, 35 chapters, 3 main characters, and 22 unique locations.
I'm not even sure what to say except thank you. Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to read this story from start to finish. Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to review this story. Thank you to everyone who has supported me during the last year while I have been writing this story.
I want to especially thank xxDustNight88, GaeilgeRua, articcat621, and SquarePeg72 for everything that you all have done. Whether it has been a quick beta read when I need it or a reassurance that my aesthetic for the next chapter isn't crap. Or even just being someone to listen to me as I try to plot out exactly what I want to do for a chapter. Thank you all for everything that you have done. It means the world.
Hopefully you all will continue to follow along with this journey in A Series of Moments as I continue to write the pieces of the story that you don't see from these letters. I unfortunately will not be updating that story until December most likely because I will be participating in NaNoWriMo this November and will solely be working on my Christmas collections, so that I will be able to update daily for most of the month of December.
If you are interested in checking out my other works or keeping up with me in general, I have an author's page on Facebook that you can check out (starrnobella Fanfiction) as well as a group (starrnobella Fanfiction Friends & Fans) that I am very active in on a daily basis. I'm also on tumblr (starrnobella) that you can follow along with me as well.
Thank you once again!

Mr. and Mrs. Malfoy,
I know that you have chosen to keep your maiden name at work, Ms. Granger, but for this letter I felt that it was necessary to address you by your proper name.
First of all, I want to thank both of you for your commitment and dedication that you have shown to your work at the Ministry over the last twenty years. I know how much of a time commitment the numerous positions you have held were, and we are grateful for every moment that you were able to dedicate to the work that we have done.
Without the organizational and leadership skills that you both were able to show, the Ministry would not run nearly as smoothly as it is currently. For that alone, I know that I personally am eternally grateful. I have also heard mumblings from other offices saying how grateful they are for that work that you have done.
Secondly, I want to acknowledge the strain that your positions at the Ministry has put on your marriage. I know that it has not been easy spending the majority of the last two years separated from one another.
I can't say I'm surprised to find out that you two were able to keep in contact while you were away. Am I to assume that that was your discovery, Ms. Granger? At least you followed my instructions to some kind of manner. Although, it would have been nice to know that it at least took you a few months into your assignments to get it figured out.
I, for one, am happy to see that the strain of your jobs did not affect your marriage negatively. In fact, I believe that the distance was able to strengthen your marriage in small ways each day. From what I have noticed as well, each time that you two come into the office things seem to be better than ever.
Basically, I am writing this letter to you today to say thank you and also to let you know that at least I was able to figure out your secret messaging system. This letter is also to signify the end of your respective assignments.
Ms. Granger if you would be interested in going back to working with the Aurors Office, I have an offer that you and Mr. Malfoy may be interested in. Mr. Yaxley is getting ready to retire as the overall Department Chair of the Aurors Office at the close of this year. When asked him who he would recommend to fill his chair, only two names were mentioned. He couldn't pick just one to take his place, so I am offering the job to both of you.
A co-chair position. Only if you are interested, however.
The position does not involve individual travel, unlike your previous positions. However, there will be opportunities for you two to travel together and explore other parts of the world that you haven't seen before. The job would also come with a raise in pay from your current pay level.
We can discuss more about the position and the work it entails should you both decide to accept the promotion. The sooner you can let me know, the sooner we can start the proper paperwork that would need to be filed for the promotion to be set in motion.
Enjoy your vacation and the time you have to spend together.
Minister of Magic
