A/n after a very long run with this series, I've decided this will be the last chapter. I can't thank you all enough for your support along the way. You all rock! This doesn't dovetail to any episode, it's just how I envisioned ending the series. It's the most important moment of all I believe.

The Most Valuable Coin in the World

One important tool of a magician is coins. They can make them dance across their knuckles, or appear from behind the ears of delighted children.

I've been carrying a special coin or medallion in my pocket for months. I don't play with it as I would with other coins in magic tricks. It performs its own magic for me.

I gave the coin back to its owner tonight after they gave me one of my own. The weight of it's the same in my pocket. It glitters in the light when I look at it, but it feels different somehow.

I earned this medallion, not borrowed strength from someone who believed in me when he could have walked the other way.

It's been a long year, but I wouldn't go back for all the coins in the world. This is the only one I need.
