The time had come. The final time Teddy Lupin would be writing in the WPL Book. The last time he would run into his bedroom and throw himself into the desk. Small tears ran down his cheek as he thought of all the good things that had happened since the book began. Riding himself of those memories, he grabbed a quill and ink and began to read.
' I can't even believe the summer is over already. I'm crying as I write this, I don't want it to end. So many good things have happened and new things have begun. We're family guys, we're actually family. No matter what nuts there might be. This entry will probably be the most emotional and tear jerking one yet, and I'm sorry about that. You'll be doing a few things. Listing what you think was the funniest moment in the WPL Book, what you think was the most shocking moment, what you think was the saddest moment, what you've learned about family and your parting words. Happy writing and crying.'
Funniest moment- When Rose finally admitted she fancies Scorpius. I knew it was coming.
Most shocking moment- When Lucy and Molly made up. I didn't see that one coming.
Saddest moment- The entry when we started out sentences like 'I dream.., I see..'. Alot of those were really sad.
What I've learned about family- Even though I'm not family yet, I already feel like I am. And yes, that was a 'yet' a sentence ago. I proposed to Victoire. She said yes.
Parting words- All of you make me feel like I'm somewhere I belong. Even if my last name isn't Weasley or Potter, I'm one at heart. That's all that matters after all.
Funniest moment- When Louis brought up when Maman turned Daddy into a pair of socks. I'll never forget that as long as I live.
Most shocking moment- When Rose admitted she fancies Scorpius. I didn't see that coming AT ALL.
Saddest moment- When we all began to fall apart. I partically blame myself for this, making one of the entries being what bothers you about the other people. I hated seeing all of us like that.
What I've learned about family- Family is family, no matter what. You can't change who your family is, so you myaswell love them. I want all of you to know that I love you with everything inside me. And I really did say yes.
Parting words- I've learned more about all of you than I thought I ever would. I feel as if I read a biography on all of you. I hope things don't change over the school year between us. Any of you feel free to write to me at any time and if you need anything. Family is there for one another.
I can't believe you two are engaged! I'm so happy for you both!
Funniest moment- When Teddy thought he could take Victoire. It was a lost cause Teddy, sorry.
Most shocking moment- Lucy admiting that she was wrong and she can be mean sometimes. I didn't see it coming, but I'm so proud that you did it.
Saddest moment- Like Victoire said, when we were all falling apart.
What I've learned about family- We've got to be there for eachother no matter what. We may fight like hippogriffs and the Giant Squid, but we have to come together in the end. Who do you have if you don't have family?
Parting words- I just want to thank all of you for being there for me when I was being an emotional nimrod. And Lucy, I want to thank you for accepting my apology and being my sister. I'll miss this book and all of you so much it's not even funny. This was definetly a tear-jerking entry.
Thanks Vic and Teddy, I'm so happy I'm bloody crying.
Funniest moment- I still say when Teddy said he's afraid of my dad.
Most shocking moment- Lucy and all of us getting along. Never saw that one coming.
Saddest moment- Teddy talking about his parents. I dont know what I would do without mine.
What I've learned about family- You need family to survive. Family is your backbone weither you want to admit it or not.
Parting words- I'm going to miss this alot. I didn't think I would get attatched to a piece of parchment, but it happened. This is the best summer I've ever had. I love you guys, even though right now I'm crying over you.
Congrats Teddy and Victoire, I'm happy for you guys. And holy gillyweed Teddy you NEED to make the team.
Funniest moment- James asking me for 15 dungbombs, 3 goats and a pair of tweezers. I'm sure all of you thought we were mad.
Most shocking moment- I'm going to say the whole Teddy/Victoire engagement thing. Came at me like a Hagrid with a troll club.
Saddest moment- Realizing this is over. I'm a bloke and I'm getting upset over this.
What I've learned about family- No matter how much you say you hate your family, you don't. It's not possible to hate your family. I think this is because you ARE your family and your family is you. It goes way beyond blood.
Parting words- I'm amazed that we can all get along and act civilized. I'm proud of you guys all in the same. If any of you want to write over the summer, feel free to. I'll miss all of you.
Let me know when the wedding is! I'm so excited!
Funniest moment- Finding out Uncle Ron has never killed a spider. He's so tall, I never would've imagined he's afraid of them.
Most shocking moment- Lucy apologizing. I'm proud of you, Lucy.
Saddest moment- Like Teddy said, reading all of the 'I am.., I believe..' sort of entries. I actually cried reading some of them.
What I've learned about family- You may not always like them, but you'll always love them. You can't change them, but you know you would'nt if you could. Family is family. We're finally a family.
Parting words- I'm really upset this is ending, I don't want it to. I feel so connected to all of you and I feel like I just made best friends with all of you. I love you all.
Congrats Teddy and Victoire, you guys are lucky you have eachother.
Funniest moment- Everybody saying Hugo is really a secret mastermind prankster. I think that whole thing was funny.
Most shocking moment- When everybody forgave me. I can't tell you how happy I am for that.
Saddest moment- Realizing I was part of a family who was tearing themselves apart, and I was a majority of it.
What I've learned about family- They're always there for you, even if you have been nothing but a git to them for the past 4 years. They're there to forgive and to love. They're there to forget and learn.
Parting words- Words can't express what I'm feeling right now, because me myself I don't know what I'm feeling. I'm so happy things got cleared up, but I'm so sad this is ending. This summer has been amazing and I want to thank each of you for being forgiving and being a part of this summer. I couldn't ask for more.
I can't believe you're getting married, Vic. Teddy I'm just praying you asked Dad and Mum.
I can't believe Teddy got another call back.
Funniest moment- Alot of things. I think Rose admitting she fancies Scorpius was pretty funny.
Most shocking moment- Teddy and Victorie being engaged. I'm happy but so damn shocked.
Saddest moment- The whole fighting thing. I'm a guy and it upset me.
What I've learned about family- That we're always going to be there for eachother, even if we say we're not going to be. You can always depend on family..
Parting words- I'm going to miss this alot, I now have nothing to look forward to everytime I see a owl coming my way. I wish we could continue this over the school year. I'll miss you guys.
I can't believe Teddy's getting hitched. Also, Congrats on the other call back.
Funniest moment- When Victoire rubbed it in Teddy's face she took him. Sorry mate.
Most shocking moment- Rose and Scorpius. I still won't allow it to happen.
Saddest moment- When Lily and Al gave me crap about me being nasty to them all the time. It actually hurt, believe it or not.
What I've learned about family- That we're family no matter what. No matter how much we fight, yell, scream and hurt one another, we're still family. Blood like lava and skin like leather.
Parting words- This is going to get so mushy, but I'm not sorry about it one bit. I've said this before and I bloody mean it. I'll never let anybody hurt any of you, push you down and kick you. I'm here with you guys forever and I'll always be there when you need me. I don't say that enough. I love all of you. I just dropped a tear.
Yay for Teddy and Victoire!
Funniest moment- Aunt Fleur and Uncle Bill as the red sock. It was bloody priceless.
Most shocking moment- Lucy apologizing. I'm so glad you did and once again, I'm sorry I was mean to you.
Saddest moment- When everybody was fighting. I was actually really close to leaving myself.
What I've learned about family- What have I learned about family? That the Weasley-Potter-Lupin family is the best bloody family around and I wouldn't trade them for the sun in the sky. All of you are amazing.
Parting words- I'm so happy this book came to be. I may be a bookworm, but this is by far my favorite book ever. I love all of you and please please promise you'll all keep in contact. Damn you for making me cry!
P.S. I no longer fancy Scorpius. Yes, I changed my mind quick. I'm a girl, what do you expect?
Now that you two are engaged, both of you will have to come over for dinner. Nice one on the other call back, Teddy.
Funniest moment- 15 dungbombs, 3 goats and a pair of tweezers. I was literally rolling on the floor when I read that weeks ago.
Most shocking moment- What James wrote above. I'm still in shock.
Saddest moment- Hearing everybodys 'I am..' and other sentences. Alot of them were eye-openers for me.
What I've learned about family- I may not look like any of you, but you're my family and I'm yours no matter what. Family isn't about how much members look alike, it's about how they love eachother through all their faults and mistakes.
Parting words- Not alot gets to me, but this is actually taking a toll on me. I'm going to miss this little red-leather bound book alot. I love you prats, and make sure you write.
Congrats Teddy and Victoire.
Oh and Congrats Teddy on the other call back.
Funniest moment- Everybody thinking that I'm going to be this master mind prankster. I'm really not TOTALLY like that, but it was halarious to read.
Most shocking moment- Rosie saying she fancied Scorpius. I'm so glad she's over him now. SO glad.
Saddest moment- I know I didn't say alot or give alot of info, but it really did bug me when all of us were fighting. I don't like being like that with anybody to be honest.
What I've learned about family- We all may be weird, short, tall, smart, freckley, pale, blue haired, red haired or black haired-but we're family. Thats all that matters at the end of the day.
Parting words- I really am going to miss this book, as weird as that looks while I write this down. When this first started, I didn't even want to do it. I thought it was going to be really stupid and Rosie made me do it. I want to thank Rose for forcing me into this. This was the best summer I've ever had.
Yay a wedding! Yay another call back!
Funniest moment- The whole dungbomb-goat-tweezers thing. It was so weird it was funny.
Most shocking moment- Lucy admitting her faults. It takes a really strong person to admit when they're wrong and I admire you for it.
Saddest moment- When Molly called Lucy a bitch. I acted like it was a good thing at first, but I now realize how sad it really was. How pathetic we all really were.
What I've learned about family- No matter what happens, we'll always be there for one another. Although we may fight and call eachother horrible names, we'll always be family. Always.
Parting words- I'm crying so bad right now, but I'm doing it with a smile upon my face. This summer has done so many great things for all of us and I think I can speak for everyone when I say that I don't regret this at all. And as I write these last words, I smile. Smile for the memories, smile for the friendships that were made. Let the WPL Book live on.
And as that last period was marked, as that last tear dropped, she did smile. And when she closed her eyes, she saw all of them smiling. Teddy, Victoire, Molly, Dominique, Fred, Roxanne, Lucy, Louis, James, Albus, Rose, Hugo and herself. All smiling, smiling like a family.
I can't even begin to explain what I felt while I was writing this. I've grown attatched to this and now it's over. I love this chapter so much and I think it's probably my favorite along with the best chapter. I hope all of you enjoyed it and thank you for the endless support I've gotten for the story itself and the positive feedback. I'm also very proud to say that I am going to write a sequel and it will be a tad bit different, but it will take place during the school year.
I'm thinking that after Lily was done writing, she sent it to Victoire and it went back down the line so that everybody could read what had been written. No quill touched the paper after Lily had written in it though.
Thank you all so much,
