A/N:And here we are ladies and germs. The final chapter. Actually...this is more of a wrap-up than a chapter, but whatever. Sit back and enjoy.
The Daily Prophet
By Ima Ryta
Following an anonymous tip last night, Aurors and ministry officials raided the home of Draco Malfoy, head of the Malfoy family. What they discovered was as gruesome as it was exhilarating.
Within the entrance hall, dead, lay none other that the Dark Lord himself, along with all of his followers. You-know-who was found with his neck broken amongst the bodies of no less than seventy death eaters.
It has been confirmed that it was indeed He-who-must-not-be-named's body that was recovered. And while no one knows who is responsible for the liberation of the wizarding world, this reporter would like to send out her thanks to the boy-who-lived. Thank you, Harry Potter, where ever you are.

Dumbledore's Secret Life
By Rita Skeeter
Following the apparent suicide of rookie auror Ronald Weasley three days ago, recent actions by the so-called 'leader of the light' have come to light.
Aurore Weasley's suicide note left detailed reports of Dumbledore's plot to imprison Harry Potter five years ago. However, when ministry officials attempted to question the headmaster, he was found dead in his Hogwarts office.
Stranger still, though still not surprising to this reporter, was the predicament in which the Headmaster's body was found.
Albus Dumbledore was found, naked, within a hidden goat pen within his office. Evidence suggests that, during certain...activities...he suffered from a massive heart attack that proved fatal. As this this reporter knows, everyone of her readers will remember certain charges brought before the supreme mugwump years ago. It seems as though those charges were indeed true.
However, using an experimental technique, the department of mysteries was able to extract recent memories from Dumbledore's mind. These memories prove that he was manipulating young mr. Potter for most of his life.
Charges of child abuse, neglect, and indecent exposure have been leveled against the deceased headmaster. Because of this, all of his awards have been stripped, albeit post-mortem.
Subsequently, Harry Potter has been given an Order of Merlin, first class. Though he has not come forth to claim it. The ministry...
"Mione?" The voice of her lover brought her attention from the newspaper in front of her. Looking up, she smiled at Harry's relaxed posture and contented grin.
"Why are you reading that trash?"
"What else am I to do at six in the morning?"
Her answer was a passionate kiss that led to...other things. Things that lasted the rest of the day.
"That's eight hours straight!" declared Dobby as the noises filtered down into the kitchen of number twelve, Grimmauld place. "Are they ever gonna stop?"
"Well, Dobby. Think about it. Harry killed everyone who was controlling his fate, gaining control of it himself. It's the same as some ancient warrior cultures. 'To the victor go the spoils.' 'Winner take all.'" Staring into space with an intense expression, Sirius let out a deep sigh.
"You keep what you kill."
A/N:And that is the end. Later...
Okay, so there may be a sequel in the works. we'll see. For real though, I want to thank all of those that have stayed with me throughout this experiment-turned-epic. Later people.
