"Hermione, this is one of those times when you're going to have to be completely clear about what you say," Draco told her, his baritone voice very low.

She looked at him, before gingerly getting off of the bed. He stepped forward and held onto her arms to make sure she could stand all right.

They stared into each other's eyes for a long time, willing the other to speak—it was like an unspoken battle between them. They'd defeated Xander, but they still battled against each other; who was the strongest?

"I'm sick of fighting with you," she informed him, breaking their eye contact by blinking, "No one has to be the best. No one has to be the strongest. The only thing that matters is you and me, all right? If you want to be in a relationship with me; that matters. If I want to be in a relationship with you; that matters. All this other stuff about 'who cries' and 'who fights it the best'—it doesn't matter."

He watched her, "And you're sure you're ready not to fight for number one anymore?"
She smiled at him—the face of the man that had stolen her heart, "Yes—if you are."

He smirked, "Would I have said anything if I wasn't?"

She grinned as he put an arm around her waist and pulled her to him, pressing his lips to hers.

In that moment, the sky outside erupted with fireworks, and gold handwriting could be seen across the royal blue. Hermione and Draco broke apart, smiling at one another before looking out the window, their fingers entwined with each other's.

Who knew this day would come to pass?
Who knew this love would finally last?
Through the tests and struggles their love's been put through,

These two have fallen into love that is true.
Their differenceshave been put aside; their battle been ended,

Any old wounds have finally been mended.
They shall last forever; their future draws near,

Who knew the Passion of a Dragon would be one to revere?

A/N: OH MY GOSH! It's done!! HURRAY!! Damn, what a lot of work 32 chapters was! lol Aww... but it's over now... pouts unhappily BUT WAIT!!!! I have a new story coming out!!!

Here are the details, my loyal and awesome readers:

Title: Substitute for Love
Rating: PG-13 (for language)
Rough-Release Date: June 21st-July 1st (very tentative, but you'll know, if you have me on your Author list!)
Summary (a little taste of what you'll see!)
It has been three long months since Harry's defeat of Voldemort at the Riddle House. The prophecy between the two has been fulfilled; Harry coming out the victor. But the Order of the Phoenix does not plan to disband. While the Dark Lord has been vanquished and many of his faithful Death Eaters killed, there are some who sit in Azkaban... waiting for their chance to get revenge; revenge for their Master's death. Therefore, Harry, Ron, and Hermione appeal to Dumbledore to be allowed to be inducted into the Order of the Phoenix. Will he let them? Will the Houses at Hogwarts grow closer in fear of an attack, or farther away? Will Draco follow in his father's footsteps and become a Death Eater, leading those weaker than him to power? Will another Dark Lord rise to power in the wake of the first one's death? And yet, during all of this, can two people who never got along find love? And will the Death Eaters launch one final attempt to kill Harry, Ron, and Hermione—the three responsible for the death of Lord Voldemort?
You'll have to wait and see, won't you? :-P HAHAHAHA
