I don't own anything that even seems vaguely familiar to you. Most characters and places are real or belong to the most brilliant and famous J.K. Rowling
I could have sworn I had spell-check when I first typed this up but apparently not. Either that or FanFic magically made mistakes appear in my story. I'm going with the magic of FanFic and not my bad grades in English class.
SO! The only things that have changed are spelling/grammar errors and I have changed the dates to match cannon.
Chapter 1: Prolog
During the summer after his fifth year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry several things happened to Harry James Potter of number 4 Privet Drive Little Whinging, Surrey.
After a month of brooding at the Dursleys', Harry was allowed to leave his aunt's and uncle's to go with his best friend Ron and the rest of the Weasleys to #12 Grimmauld Place. There they were joined by their other best friend, Hermione Granger.
Ron and Hermione had secretly started dating during their fifth year and spent a LOT of time together. This left Harry and Ginny time to get to know each other. They became best friends that summer. Shortly before Harry's 16th birthday, Percy Weasley admitted his mistakes and made up with the family. Everyone was surprised to find out that he had gotten married the previous January to Penelope Clearwater and that they were expecting a baby any day. On July 20 Kelly Margaret was welcomed in to the world, born at the Burrow.
The following school year, it was quite common to see Harry and Ginny together. Although lots of rumors were started, none of them were even close to true until Christmas Eve when they were caught under the mistletoe.
Over the next two-and-a-half years, Harry half-heartedly tried many times to push his friends away. The only thing he succeeded in doing though was become even closer. While Harry was in the hospital wing recovering from his annual fight with Tom at the end of their 6th year, Ron and Ginny got an owl telling them that they had a new sister thanks to their older brother Charlie who had married a girl named Linda. Later that summer they received an owl from Penelope who had give birth to twins (Mississippi Ann and Orlando Alex) while she, Percy, and Margaret were in America.
During the trio's 7th year they got upgraded from a trio to a sextet with the addition of Ginny, Neville, and Luna. After graduation, Harry and Ron became Aurors and Hermione took the position of Hogwarts Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher. On November 4, 1998 Ron and Hermione got married. At the reception after the wedding, the partying was interrupted by the untimely arrival of Charlene Jo-Ann Weasley, Charlie and Linda's first child.
After her one year, Hermione passed the Defense job to Ginny and started helping Madam Pince in the library. She was very good at finding the books for the students even if she couldn't always get them down, being eight months pregnant.
Harry never told his friends about the prophecy, except Neville. Harry felt that he should know the reason why his parents had been attacked. After hearing the prophecy, and getting his own wand, Neville was of great help to Harry. Ginny, Ron, Hermione, Neville, and Luna helped Harry in every way possible in the fight against Tom Riddle, Lord Voldemort.
Until the very end.

A Joyful Tragedy
Nineteen years ago a prophecy was made telling of a boy who would vanquish the Dark Lord...
THE ONE WITH THE POWER TO VANQUISH THE DARK LORD APPROACHED...BORN TO THOSE WHO HAVE THRICE DEFIED HIM, BORN AS THE SEVENTH MONTH DIES...AND THE DARK LORD WILL MARK HIM AS HIS EQUAL, BUT HE WILL HAVE POWER THE DARK LORD KNOWS NOT...AND EITHER MUST DIE AT THE HAND OF THE OTHER FOR NEITHER CAN LIVE WHILE THE OTHER SURVIVES...THE ONE WITH THE POWER TO VANQUISH THE DARK LORD WILL BE BORN AS THE SEVENTH MONTH DIES...
There were 2 boys who fit the description; Neville Longbottom, son of Aurors Frank and Alice Longbottom and Harry Potter, son of James and Lily Potter. It was uncertain which boy it was until that fateful Halloween night when Voldemort, yes Voldemort formerly known as Tom Marvolo Riddle, killed Lily and James Potter and marked little Harry as his equal.
Last night, at the graveyard in Little Hangleton near the Riddle House, with his friends Ginny Weasley, Neville Longbottom, and Luna Lovegood, captured – his best friends, Hermione and Ron Weasley, safe at St. Mungo's awaiting the arrival of their first child – Harry James Potter faced Lord Voldemort for the last time, and won.
The only things found of the Dark Lord were a hand with a missing finger (see page 5), remains of his father's bone (dust), and a sinister-looking red-black stone in the shape of a human heart (see page 3). After HE was destroyed, all loyal Death Eaters were transported to the spot, stunned, and tied up (see page 6).
Harry Potter, after freeing his friends, said he was sorry, and Apparated away. When his home was later searched all his belongings were gone. The only things that his friends found were a map of Pennsylvania (in the U.S.A.), a letter saying he loved them and would be back, and a lightning-bolt shaped necklace for his girlfriend, Ginny Weasley.
Where is the Boy-Who-Lived now? No one knows, but we can all hope that we will see our Great Hero Harry Potter again, someday.
