Chapter:

"Mama?"

A small smile formed on Lily Potter's face as her youngest called to her from his seat at the kitchen table. He was busy finishing the requested test she had given him, the last one before he sat his final OWL exam the following day. The smile was tinged with a hint of sadness as she left the spoon stirring the pot as she went to him, running her hand through his hair as she wordlessly accepted the parchment from him and scanned the answers. Yet another O she thought contentedly as she pressed a kiss of congratulations to his forehead before shooing him outside for a well deserved break.

Mama.

A title he had not used for her in years but had once more adopted since his return from St. Mungo a little under a year ago. The healer had seen nothing wrong with it, nor the fact that James was once again Papa, and his extended family, Uncle Sirry and Uncle Remmy. It had been his, along with Evan's names for them when they were quite small, names that had disappeared somewhere around their fifth or sixth birthdays. And now Harry used them all freely.

Healer Madison had assured them that Harry's treatments were going as well as could be expected and that instances of age regression were fairly common with patients dealing with emotional trauma. Besides, she continued, Harry's case was mild at best, limited only to his titles for them and his slightly more clingy nature. The latter, she hypothesised was a manifestation of Harry's unconscious desire for his brother. For had he not, in his younger years, acted the same around his twin?

All siblings shared a bond with each other, the one between twins the strongest. Some, like the Weasley twins shared an uncanny knack for completing each other's sentences and seemingly knowing what the other was thinking. Others, like the Patils always seemed to know the other's emotions; it wasn't uncommon to see one of them with a slightly amused smile at the same time that the other was laughing about something across the hall, or to find one moody when the other was angry.

The Potter twins were no different, their bond manifested in their interactions with each other. Evan was the fiercely protective and more dominant twin, Harry the levelheaded and usually soft spoken counterpart. They complemented each other, each putting the other into a balanced state. With Evan away at Hogwarts, and Harry at his most vulnerable point, he transferred his behaviours for his brother to his parents, relying on them to guide him through his darkest hours. Whether he realised the fact was a different story.

He had one session at St. Mungo's left and it would be the toughest yet as the last of his dampeners were removed and he was forced to experience the remainder of his suppressed emotions. He had made good progress, both on his own and with the healers. His relationship with his twin was still stilted, their conversations over Christmas awkward at best, but at least it was a start. Harry had managed to speak with Evan, never about anything personal and always with the buffer of a parent around. However, it was still considerably better than his reactions to him in the summer.

oOoOoOoOo

Evan had seen Harry's surprised at Christmas when he was told that it would be a Weasley and Granger free affair. No doubt he had believed that it was his parents' doing, wanting to spare him unnecessary stress. The elder Potter was not about to correct his assumption and inform him that his friendship with Ron had all but collapsed and that with Hermione was hardly better. Evan had served a week of detention for breaking his formerly best friend's nose and not two days later landing him in the hospital wing for an overnight stay.

The first act happened his second night back in the dormitory. Ron still thought their actions that night justified, but Evan, still tormented by Harry's condition had not stood for it and after his first warning was ignored, had introduced his then best friend to his fist when he murmured loudly that he had been right and Harry's treatment in St. Mungo was proof that he was truly bonkers. Evan had to admit that he had been stunned when seconds after Ron straightened, Neville added a black eye to his collection and, while they worked side by side scrubbing the third floor bathroom floor, the some-what shy Gryffindor told him of the events that led him to live with his Gram. Evan returned the favour by explaining what was wrong with Harry, and a tentative friendship formed that night, one that the Potter heir was now diligently pursuing.

His friendship with Hermione was only on a slightly better footing given that she wisely avoided all conversation surrounding Harry. However, he had stumbled across her a few weeks into the term while he was putting his father's invisibility cloak to use and overheard her remarking that with Harry gone, the top spot in their year was hers. In an ode to his brother, Evan dove into his work with earnestness that would impress even Harry. He was almost certain that he had jumped a good five or so places up the rankings, and hoped that it was enough to keep Hermione in second place. He had no doubt that the clever witch would realise that he had somehow heard her words when the final rankings were revealed. For had not she at one point, whether jokingly or otherwise, stated that he was all brawn and no brains? It was the perfect non-violent revenge for her callousness towards his brother.

If it had not been for his parents' letters of reassurance that Harry was indeed reading the letters he owled, he would have thought that his twin had changed his mind about wanting him to write. But then, Harry's first letter had never given any indication that he had intended to respond. His mother had told him once that she always saw Harry scribbling away, not too long after a letter arrived and had been surprised that they never had been sent. Cleaning his room one day while Harry was at the hospital, Lily had found a pile of addressed letters. It seemed her youngest did not have the courage to send them. The fact that they had been written at all was enough solace for the redheaded Potter. Harry would give them to him on his own time. He would wait for that day, no longer how long it took.

oOoOoOoOo

"Papa?" Harry asked softly, minutes after he had dropped down besides the man.

Immediately the newspaper James had been reading was tossed aside, all of his focus on the teenager besides him. Initially he had believed that Harry had just come for the company, but his name, along with the slight edge to it confirmed that more than that was wanted.

"Yes Harry, what's on your mind?" he asked easily, and when his son hesitated, he added teasingly, "Did you miss that one point that would give you a distinction in Runes?"

"Papa," Harry grumbled, elbowing him for the jab. "It's the point in History I'm worried about. But that's not what I wanted to ask you."

"Then what is?" James inquired, as he wrapped his arm around the teenager's shoulder and pulled him into his chest. He knew it would be less nerving on him if he could hide his face from view and he facilitated the action easily.

He honestly wondered at times what profession his boy would go into. Evan he could easily envision as an auror, or even a politician given his charismatic nature. The wizarding world certainly expected it from him. But Harry? Where would his shy scholarly boy fit in? Harry could certainly study unhindered for the rest of his days that was for certain. Sirius had named him his heir after all, and it was not as if James would not provide an inheritance for his younger son like pureblood families customarily did, passing it all to the first born male. However, would Harry pursue a scholarly life or was there a yet unmentioned career that he had his eyes on? It was a conversation for another day.

"I-is big brother mad at me?" Harry all but whispered; his eyes drifting close when he felt his father tense for a second before he slowly relaxed, his hold on him tightening marginally.

"Why do you think that my son?"

Harry squirmed lightly as the thoughts that had plagued him for the last few days rose to the surface. He was a forgiving soul, and with the aid of the healers and family had long ago accepted what had been done to him and was willing to move on. With the final dampener removed, Harry had logically deciphered his emotions and the healers were pleased with the progress he had made. He was no longer obligated to have the treatments, and in a last word of comfort to the Potters, Healer Madison assured them that the titles he was using would fade away with time.

Evan was returning from Hogwarts in a little under a week, and while his parents worried at how he would react to Evan's return, Harry was more concerned with what his brother had to say to him. His brother's letters had grown increasingly short in the past month or so, and logically, Harry knew that it was the OWL examinations they were both undertaking that was the cause of it. However, a part of him, that insecure aspect to his nature, wondered if he had pushed his brother away with his reluctant attitude. He pondered if he should have mailed one of those letters carefully stored away, or at least have informed him that what he wanted to tell him could never be said properly through parchment and quill and that he wanted, in person, to finally and formally accept his brother's apology.

What if Evan had given him up as a lost hope and was no longer interested in him? Labelled him a complete nuisance only to be tolerated for the few years it took them to reach adulthood and move on to their own separate lives. It was those fears, which suddenly proved too much for him on this windless afternoon that had sent him indoors to his father, home on vacation, for reassurance. James never lied to him, and unlike his mother would tell him the truth bluntly, not cushioned in a way to spare his feelings.

"I haven't – I never replied. What if it's too late Papa?" he whispered in a small voice. "What if I've completely lost him to Ron?"

The name surprised James, more so the fact that Evan had not told Harry about his status with his friends. Had he been afraid to mention their names? The Potter patriarch knew that it was not his right to reveal such information and so he talked around it. "I can honestly tell you Harry," he said instead, moving his hand to tip Harry's face upwards so that he could stare into his eyes and gauge his reaction, "that Evan will never allow others to come between you all. Again," he hastened to add. "Evan misses you terribly Harry and he wants to make things right between you. He doesn't hate you, he never has. Most likely he is afraid that it is you who hates him."

Emerald eyes widened in shock. "I don't hate him Papa! I don't. What he did hurt but I never hated him. I miss him too."

"So why the distance little one?" he prodded gently, rubbing his back to keep him calm.

"I-I," he stammered before trying again. "I wanted to pay him back, make him hurt like he did me. But then it just became easier to ignore him, almost like a second nature. But when he left, I felt so lonely. I'm used to not really talking to him anymore, but – you know, he was still there. But when he left, I felt so alone, and then I got angry."

"Why the anger?"

"Because – Papa, it was so hard to function without talking to him. Do you understand how much effort that took? Especially with him only watching me like that. And he did it for years Papa!"

James slowly released the boy as his voice rose, anger lacing his tone. He said nothing as his son built himself into a rant.

"How could he forgotten me Papa? Everyday, for years he went about fine with his friends while I was alone because of him. Everyone expects me to be like Evan but I'm not! Weasley and Granger came as close to him as I could ever be. Weasley, athletic and boisterous, Granger bossy and bookish. They both had enough similarities with Evan that no-one questioned their association. They were the golden trio, they could do no wrong.

"And what was I? Black sheep Potter, the nerdish freak that nobody liked. No matter what I did it, wasn't good enough. I played quidditch, I got yelled at and insulted the most no matter that I was the best. I got house points everyday but did anyone care? No! Because I was just trying to upstage Evan! Stupid Potter should know his place and let his brother have all the glory. As if I was wrong for being smart. What should I have done, gotten straight Ts? And then what would I be? The Potter ignoramus?

"I never said anything Papa, never, because Evan loved Hogwarts and I wanted everything to be perfect for him. This year at home, this was my best year ever because nobody insulted me for wanting to read, nobody started rumours because I rather be in the library that watch a quidditch match! And yet through it all I kept thinking about Evan. How is he? Is he keeping up with the work? Any real competition for him among the chasers? Everyday I wonder how he is, and yet never once did he ever pull me aside in school, not for two minutes to find out how I was doing.

"How could he? When did he forget me and why? What did I do to make him ignore me like that? When did he loose his trust in me Papa and why? Am I wrong for hiding away? Was it my fault that the only person who likes me in Hogwarts is the person just as much an outcast as me? I don't care, I wouldn't care if I had gone through the seven years friendless as long as I knew that Evan was besides me. And he wasn't! He thought I was evil just like everybody else.

"He hurt me Dad, it hurt so much and as much as I wanted to, I couldn't hate him. He's my big brother, I love him. Why didn't he trust me? Why did he abandon me Dad? I want my big brother back!"

The change in title was not lost on James even as he pulled his boy forward into a strong embrace, allowing the teenager, anger now spent to cry against his chest while he rocked him. He raised liquid brown eyes to Lily, who had flooed in somewhere in the middle of Harry's rant and had stood there motionlessly as she listened to him speak with more emotion than he had ever managed since that dreadful night. And when, James beckoned her forward, she flew across the room and joined them on the couch, pressing a hand against Harry's back. The teenager stiffened, and slowly disengaged from his father to turn to her.

"Mom?" was all he managed before he launched himself at her, allowing her to fuss and coo over him while he spent the last of his emotions before falling asleep with his head cushioned against her, letting her soft hands wipe away his tears.

The Potters sat there silently for a long time, both of them keeping watch over their youngest child. When she was certain he would not wake Lily spoke to James.

"He called you Dad," she pointed out, a lilt of hope to her words.

"And you Mom," James added, a small smile on his face as he reached down to stroke through messy dark hair much like his own. "Is he back now, our Harry?"

"I think so," she said tentatively after looking down at him for a minute. "James?"

"Yes my love?" he asked as he shifted closure so that he could stroke her cheek.

"Do you think that he and Evan – will they be okay?" she inquired. "I-I don't think I can handle another summer like last year."

"I don't think I can either," he admitted. "But, we can only hope so. I think they will, but then again, things can happen. We can only wait and see."

"That's what scares me."

oOoOoOoOo

"Evan's coming home today," Harry told the squirrel a little distance away from him, contentedly nibbling on the offering Harry had thrown her way. It could just have been his imagination, but Harry was positive the animal's nose gave a little twitch, inviting further conversation. Whether it did or not, Harry continued speaking regardless.

"Mom and Dad are getting him. The train should almost be at the station by now. They asked me if I wanted to come, but I said no. Why? Well, no doubt Granger and Weasley will be flanking him and I really don't want to see them. What? No, I'm not jealous of them. They're much more suited to Evan than I am. But, they're not the only reason I didn't want to go. What would I tell him? It's not like we've been speaking. What would I do? Do I hug him or shake his hand or do I do that little nod thing Malfoy does with his father?"

"That nod thing would have earned you a backhand to the head," a wry voice stated.

Harry's eyes widened at the unexpected voice, and as he rolled over from his stomach, he saw Evan standing only a few feet from him, that half-grin he customarily wore on his face. However, despite the tilt to his mouth, there was a hesitancy in his eyes that was largely unsuitable for him Harry thought.

"Some things never change huh?" Evan asked as he crossed the remaining distance and dropped easily down in front of Harry, loosening his Gryffindor tie as he spoke and throwing it noncholantly away. "Every time I upset you about something you always come here beneath this tree and talk to the wildlife," he finished with a vague wave to the squirrel still chewing merrily away. "What was it last time? A robin?"

The light tone Evan used eased Harry's nerves and he replied in an almost normal tone.

"The robin was when we were nine and you wouldn't let me help you finish the Gringott's model. Last time was a rabbit – "

"When I hid your books so you would play Quidditch with me. When was that?"

"Christmas, first year," Harry responded, eying his older brother carefully. He really had not expected the anticipated conversation with Evan to go like this. Nevertheless, he let his brother take the lead, knowing that they would eventually get to the crux of the matter.

The redhead rocked backwards slightly, putting his hands behind him firmly on the soft grass to balance himself as he looked upwards at the sky through the tree leaves. A minute passed in silence, the only sounds the rustling of the tree leaves and the muted chewing of the squirrel.

"And what was it last summer?" Evan asked softly, his question so soft Harry almost missed it.

"I-" A sudden chill ran through the younger Potter's spine as the memory of that night rose to him.

oOoOoOoOo

Harry never waited around to see his brother's reaction to his birthday present. Instead, overwhelmed, he raced from the room before anyone could try to stop it. He moved automatically, his mind completely wrapped around his brother's betrayal so that his feet led him at will. He didn't notice when he left the confines of the house, only knew that he had reached his safe-haven, this ancient oak whom he had more than once spilled his heart too when his tripped over his own feet, his landing thankfully cushioned by the soft grass.

He hadn't thought to rise and instead laid there face down on the cold summer night, watering the grass with his tears as he felt his world fall apart. How long he remained there was unknown as the night's incident replayed continuously, the pain escalating, building until he was fairly suffocating in it, unable to do anything about it.

The environment reacted to his thoughts, his magic lashing out causing the oak's branches to sway as if whipped by hurricane force winds. And yet, the pain remained constant, threatening to drive him over the edge of some unknown abiss. He couldn't handle it and from the core of his being Harry wished for an end to all the pain, all the suffering he had endured. And then in a moment, a mere minute before his mother, having only now remembered this little haven of his arrived, his magic turned inwards, separating himself from everything hurtful, creating a clear divide between him and reality and the one thing that threatened to tear him apart.

A brother's betrayal.

oOoOoOoOo

Harry swallowed deeply. "I didn't have time to call one," he murmured, his eyes carefully averted. "Mom came before that."

"Should have been me," was all the redhead said. There was another long pause before Evan spoke again. "Harry?"

"Yes Evan?" Harry replied sensing a shift in his brother's demeanour although outwardly his facial expression remained the same. His eyes were still firmly cast upwards as well.

"Can I- will you let me explain?"

"I know what happened Evan," Harry sighed. "I understand why you did it, I don't like it, but still I understand."

"That's true," he agreed, knowing that he had poured his heart out more than once in the past few months. "Then, will you explain?"

"Hm?" Harry said, almost absently as he multiplied the oat the squirrel was nibbling on, a flicker of a smile entering his eyes when it sent him a grateful look. Poor thing was a runt, it could use all the help it could get to survive.

"Talk to me, I want to know everything you felt. Make me understand."

So Harry did, restating everything he had written in his letters and what he had told his father. And Evan listened unmoving. The clouds drifted by slowly and other than the rustling wind, only Harry's voice interrupted the silence. Until finally there was nothing left to say so Harry fell quiet. When Evan made no immediate move to reply, Harry finally tore his eyes away from the squirrel he had focussed on the entire time, and felt a small pang at the tears running down Evan's face. Silent tears that dripped down unto his shirt. Tears that didn't need shedding, Harry thought, not even noticing that his own cheeks were damp from his remembrance. Without a word he leaned across, drawing a flinch from his older brother as he carefully brushed away the tears. When he was satisfied he moved away, only now dabbing at his own.

"Do you think you can ever forgive me?" Evan asked eventually, his voice uncertain. "For everything I've done to you?"

He had thought long and hard about what he would say to his twin once he reached on the platform. He had been ready to lay it all on the line, openly beg his forgiveness right there at the station, no doubt humiliating himself, but it was a risk he would take if it would prove to his twin how sorry he was. The last year had been his hardest, every day it struck him just how much his brother had meant to him.

Even though their contact with each other had been limited while at school, it was only with him gone that Evan realised just how much he had unconsciously kept an eye on Harry. Several times in the hall, in between bites, his eyes would drift to the Ravenclaw table and he would feel a small pang as they settled on a particular spot before he remembered Harry was at home. And then, the times he was in the library, his eyes always went to a table tucked away in a corner of the library, only now recognising that it was the spot Harry favoured.

That fact was mildly reassuring to the redhead. Somewhere in the back of his mind he had always kept an eye out for his brother, unconsciously noting his state. He had little doubt that during Harry's younger years, if someone had been harassing Harry during one of his little surveillances, he would have knocked them flat. Harry had been right, he had heard all the rumours surrounding his brother, but foolishly, he had somehow let himself believe that Harry did not know of them.

He certainly appeared untroubled at the times Evan spotted him and the few times he had seen him looking even slightly melancholy, he had a pile of books with him, leading him to believe that it was just some assignment troubling him. And then there was always Ron dragging him away so that his attention wavered from his twin. But most importantly, there was always the little reassuring voice in the back of his head that his twin would come to him if anything was wrong.

That little voice failed to remind him of their first year Christmas when his parents had been forced to open his eyes to his neglect of Harry. How could he have forgotten that Harry would not want to be a bother to him? And just where had that notion come from anyway, he thought darkly. Harry certainly had never been shy to talk to him pre-Hogwarts. If someone had planted that notion in his mind, he frowned; he would earn himself a good few more detentions come sixth year.

However, all of those carefully planned words of his had faded when he walked out of the train with Neville and more surprisingly, Luna Lovegood (he could actually appreciate why Harry was friends with the girl. She certainly lived in her own universe but she was good company) and found only his parents waiting for him. James was making a general nuisance of himself by yelling and waving madly while a slightly embarrassed Lily (she after all had years of experience with his antics and had long become shame-proof) only raised an eyebrow at his companions before greeting them warmly.

While his mother went off for a word with Molly Weasley, his father had explained that Harry had decided against coming, but no it was not necessarily a bad thing. Without going into much details James assured him that Harry held no antagonism towards him and, once his mother returned, they apparated home. Harry had not been in the receiving room, nor could he find him in his bedroom.

It was then that he remembered this place and without bothering to change had come here, as he had so many times throughout the years when he had pushed his little brother too far. And as expected, Harry was there, holding a one-sided conversation while his feet pumped idly behind him. As always, he never heard him approach until he spoke. Evan could only hope that this conversation would end as all others had, with Harry forgiving him and them moving on. Wanting to move towards that, he had asked his question.

"Can you ever forgive me Harry?" he asked again, gathering all his Gryffindor courage as he turned his head to look at the person besides him.

Different emotions were flitting across his twin's face and the teenager took so long to respond that Evan honestly feared that he would say no. His heart felt like it was in a vice grip at that thought and unwillingly he felt his eyes stinging, the precursor to more tears undoubtedly. Harry would reject him he realised, had already decided to but simply had no way of expressing the words. He should just spare him the trouble, he told himself and found himself trying to unclench a suddenly knotted throat to say the words. But then, Harry beat him to it.

Harry hugged him, throwing himself at him with a force that dislodged him, sending them both tumbling down to the grassy earth while the squirrel twittered angrily before running away, throwing one last glare at the humans. The breath was knocked out of the redhead, but seconds later he found that he could care less when Harry raised his head up, looking at him with shimmering emerald eyes. And that is when Evan realised no words were necessary. Harry's eyes were answer enough.

All the emotions, the words he needed to hear were reflected in that gaze and undoubtedly, the same was true with his. In Harry's eyes, he read what he had gone through the past year. The pain and hurt; the wariness, anger and fears; and finally and most importantly, forgiveness and love.

Above him, Harry was doing the same thing, his heartache dissipating at what he discerned from his brother's warm gaze. There was horror and sorrow; flashes of agony and regret; hope, melancholy, but most importantly; happiness and love.

And with those speaking looks, a year of suffering on both their parts faded away and for the first time, they were at peace. Suddenly above them came the cry of a bird and the moment passed. Both of them looked up, twin smiles broadening on their faces at the sight of a robin nestling comfortably on a branch. Harry looked back down at the soft chuckle coming from below him.

"What?" he asked softly, a sparkle in his eyes.

"When do you think the rabbit and squirrel will be here? Well the rabbit. Mr. Squirrel seems to have left us."

The nonsensical statement drew a snicker from Harry and he playfully swatted his twin before rolling off him. "Don't be daft Evan Potter!" he mock-growled waggling a finger as him as his twin straightened.

"Daft?" he gasped, "I will have you know that this daft Potter topped the year!"

Harry's mouth dropped open in shock. Seeing the seriousness in his twin's expression he asked, "What?"

A playful smirk pulled at Evan's mouth at the light-hearted banter. "Hey, someone had to make sure that the Potter name stayed on top. And will you stop gaping. I am smart you know!"

"I know that Ev, but Weasley always distracted you," Harry said softly, finally able to say the name without a twinge. "And what about Granger, I'm sure she nagged you about it."

Evan's brows furrowed for a moment. "She threw quite a fit actually," he said thoughtfully, "I was certain to make it known who beat her. As for Weasley, let's just say he isn't much of a distraction anymore."

"What?" Harry all but shouted. "When did that happen?"

"When I realised that my so called friends were not quite what I believed them to be. Real friends would have accepted me for who I am. And I am more than anything else, a big brother."

Harry didn't know how to reply to that, his feelings for his twin increasing. Evan had broken off friendships spanning their entire time at Hogwarts for him? His smile grew slightly tendered as he closed the distance between them.

"No one is ever, ever coming between us again Harry," the twin continued, not seeing Harry move closer. "Family above all else. We Potters have to stick toge- what are you a girl?" he ended, grumbling as Harry wove his arms around him in a tight embrace. "Brothers don't hug."

"Then you're a girl too," Harry pointed out, causing his twin's arms to squeeze tighter in retribution. "Besides who made that rule? The same wizard who said boys can't cry? Cuz Ev, I hate to tell you - but you're quite the crybaby when you want to be."

The elder brother growled. "Looking in a mirror are we Harry? That title belongs to you."

"Nope," he chuckled as he moved away, seeing the glint building in his brother's eyes, a glint that usually spelt disaster for him. "I'm pretty sure you're the boy-who-cried."

"Shut up you," Evan warned playfully as he moved into a crouch.

"Make me-" Harry dared him, edging away.

"Fine! I do so love kicking your butt wrestling anyway," he said waggling his eyebrows as he lurched forward. Harry, well prepared managed to squirm out of way and was off.

He threw his head back on a loud laugh as he swiftly changed paths, only to find that his brother had anticipated the move and was now quickly gaining on him. This was how it was meant to be. He and Evan, teasing and goading each other, talking about anything and everything, rough housing like this (no matter how much he detested the taste of dirt and grass) and simply enjoying themselves as all brothers should. And when their game turned indoors and their parents found themselves knocked over by twin fifteen year olds who threw apologies over their shoulders even as they stampeded up the stairs only to run back down minutes later and head back into the yard, they could not help but agree.

oOoOoOoOo

As Lily and James Potter stood in the arch of the back door, overlooking their sons, their eyes sparkled with happiness at the scene. Their family was reunited, their sons once again on good terms and undoubtedly closer than ever before.

"This is how it should be," Lily sighed happily as Evan and Harry paused and turned to them, shouting for them to join them.

Grabbing his wife's hand, James led her into the yard to join them, throwing her the roughish-smile she so loved. "Indeed it is," he agreed as they came alongside their sons, Lily with Harry, he with Evan. And so the Potters spent the remainder of the day in their yard, reaffirming their familial bonds.

Time would pass and eventually the Potter twins would find their own paths in life, paths that would either keep them together or lead them along different roads. But one thing was certain, no matter what the future held for the twins, the love each brother held for each other would never grow cold. For family came above all else; after all it was the Potter family motto.

The End.
