Chapter 66: Epilogue
Severus and Hermione were married the next summer after she completed her apprenticeship with McGonagall. Severus left Hogwarts and the two focused on getting ready to take the crown. Five years after the defeat of Voldemort Hermione and Severus were crowned King and Queen.
Harry and Ginny were exceedingly happy. Harry loved working as an auror but made sure he spent plenty of time with his family and friends. A little over a year after their wedding Ginny gave birth to their first child, a boy named Sirius Harold Potter and two years after that to twin girls Lillian Rose and Molly Ginevra Potter. They had another son 5 years later named Remus James Potter. Once little Remy had left for Hogwarts Harry finally took the job the wizarding world had wanted him to, he allowed Arthur to retire and became the youngest ever minister of magic at the age of 37, almost 20 years after Voldemort's defeat.
Remus and Tonks were content with their small family and loved baby James considerably. They both continued to teach at Hogwarts for many years, even after their children and grandchildren had children of their own.
Draco and Gabrielle waited to start their family until Gabrielle had finished school and established herself as the leading charms expert in the world. They had two children the heir of the Malfoy line Nicodemus Kallias Malfoy and an adorable little girl Kelsey Naomi Malfoy. Together they helped clear the Malfoy name of all the damage that Draco's father had done.
Susan and Ron were very happy and after 5 years of marriage decided to start on the next generation of Weasley's. Susan quit her job as she had a full time job raising her 6 boys and 1 girl (seems like a trend!). They had Brock, Macy, Logan and Garret then twin boys Arden and Arthur (Art), and finally their baby and only girl Paige Holly Weasley. Ron became one of the world's best keepers and played for the Cannons and the English National team.
Neville and Luna were happily married and Neville became the head gardener for the Royal family, even taking care of the King and Queen's personal potions ingredient garden. They had one son Nyle Carson Longbottom as Luna was quite busy writing and operating the Quibber, which had become a well respected magazine. Nyle was the same age as Garret Weasley and Kelsey Malfoy and the three were an inseparable trio much like the Golden Trio had been in their first years at Hogwarts.
Justin and Hannah were married a few months before Severus and Hermione but were separated 5 years later as they were better off as friends although neither ever remarried. Justin went to work for the ministry and Hannah became a medi-witch and eventually took over for Poppy when she retired. Colin and Dennis opened a combined photography and portrait studio in Diagon Alley and ended up both marring muggle women and having powerful magical children proving Hermione's theories true.
The rest of the Weasley clan was well. Molly and Arthur loved spending time with their grandchildren. Bill and Fleur had a little girl, Charlie eventually married Jasmine and they had two boys and Fred and George finally married Angelina and Alicia and each had a set of fraternal twins (boy and girl) within 2 weeks of each other. The foursome were a force to be reckoned with and most thought they were quadruplets as the two families lived next door to each other.
It took Hermione and Severus several years to be ready to produce and heir to the royal line. They had both been quite content to life their lives without children but knew they had to eventually pass the crown on to someone. They had a little girl 14 years after they were married and named her Skylar Rosaline Snape. They were very surprised when their baby fell in love with a Potter. Now many would think there was not too much of a problem with that as Remy Potter was only 7 years older than her, but it was not Remy Potter that she fell for it was Sirius Potter (Harry's oldest) who was 15 years her senior and who Ginny had given up on as a permanent bachelor as he was 35 when they began dating (Sky was 20). Severus was happy for his baby but hated the idea that his little girl was marrying the namesake of one man he used to loathe.
The wizarding world was finally at peace and after Hermione released her research into bloodlines and power the prejudices against muggle borns and half-bloods began to die away. During her reign as Queen the wizarding world more than doubled its size and once again there all magic communities and the halls of Hogwarts and all the other wizarding schools were full of students. Over time the fear of the dark was overcome and the world had been healed, truly they were living in a happily ever after.
