Tom looked at Albus. "I would like to turn in all of the Death Eaters," he told the older man. "It's the least I could do."
Albus nodded. "I understand, Tom. Even if you did not disclose this information, though, I would still have vouched for you because you are an innocent. Let's go to the Ministry and inform them of recent events." With that, the two disappeared with a crack.
Narcissa sighed. "I'm going back home, Draco. Nothing's changed. Malfoy Manor is still your home, no matter what."
"Thank you, Mummy," said Draco sincerely, and Narcissa Apparated away.
Severus looked at them all. "I'm going back to Hogwarts. Anyone else coming?" He looked over at Remus, who smiled tenderly at him.
"We're coming also, Severus. I don't think it's okay to disturb my mother right now."
"But what about my wand and all my stuff in my trunk?" Harry asked, worried.
"I'm sure that the Ministry will be sending Aurors to Slytherin's castle soon, and they should be able to retrieve your stuff. Besides, I doubt you want to go get your stuff while several hundred Death Eaters are lurking there," Remus said reasonably.
"Do you know how to Apparate, Potter?" Severus asked.
Harry shook his head.
"I'll Apparate with him, Severus," Draco offered, and Severus turned a stern eye towards him.
"Apparate with him, Draco? You know the risks that could occur from that."
"I'm willing, Severus."
"All right. Remus and I will be waiting for you in Hogsmeade. Be careful. I don't want to have to call the Ministry to reverse anything gone awry."
Remus and Severus disappeared with a crack, and Draco and Harry were left alone.
"It's all over, love, it's finally over."
"I know, Draco. We can finally love in peace."
"Are you ready to face them?"
"Yes." And he pressed his lips to Draco's in a gentle kiss before taking his hand.
The two Apparated to Hogsmeade, where Remus and Severus were standing together, Remus's head against Severus's shoulder. The brunette raised his head when they appeared, and the four set off for Hogwarts.
Before the quintet reached the doors, however, they opened of their own accord, and several people came out. One stopped when she saw them.
"Draco?" she whispered before she ran towards them and hugged Draco. The others followed her path.
Pansy detached herself from Draco and looked at him and Harry.
"It's all okay now, isn't it? It's all over, isn't it?" she asked.
"It is, Pansy. Voldemort is gone."
Pansy smiled. "And you and he can finally be in peace."
"Yes, we can."
George, meanwhile, had come up behind Pansy, and she slipped her hand in his.
"May I introduce George Weasley, my fiancé?" she told Draco, and he moved his gaze to George, who acknowledged him with a cool nod.
"Could I speak with him for a moment, Pansy?" Draco asked her, and she looked at him in surprise, though she nodded. She kissed George quickly on the lips before walking a distance away, eyes looking curiously at them.
Draco stepped close to George. "Take care of her, will you? She's been through a lot, and she deserves some happiness."
"I will, Malfoy, you need not worry," George replied, and Draco nodded.
Meanwhile, Sirius was talking to Remus.
"Remy, you're back…"
"Siri…I've found him," Remus replied quietly, and Sirius turned to look at Severus standing beside him.
"So you're still alive, Snape," he said harshly.
"Of course. I would never leave Remus in the hands of someone like you," Severus replied.
Remus cast a look between them.
"Siri, you know that I love Severus. Just accept us, please."
Sirius looked at his love through eyes thick with emotion, and he knew that what he had dreaded had finally come to pass.
"I…I love you, Remy, I do, but if being with him," he shot a glance at Severus, "makes you happy, then I…I wish you happiness. But Snape, if you ever hurt him, I will personally hunt you down and kill you," Sirius threatened.
"I think your godson wants to talk to you," Severus replied, and Sirius turned to Harry.
"What is it, Harry?"
"Remember when you asked me about how everything was several months ago?"
"I…I never told you the truth. Remember when you asked me whether I had a girlfriend?"
"Not exactly. I…had a boyfriend."
"Who?" Sirius asked.
"Draco Malfoy," Harry replied, and Sirius turned his head to look at the blonde standing by Harry, who was busy talking to George.
"Malfoy? Why him, when there are so many other people out there?"
"Probably for the same reason that Remus chose Snape over you," Harry replied quietly. "I love him, Sirius. I just never told you because I didn't think that you would approve. But now, the war's over, and I'm ready. We are engaged, and I thought that you needed to know because I want you to be there, I want you to give us your blessings."
"I…" Sirius was at a loss for words. In the space of several minutes, Remus had rejected him for the last time and he had discovered that his godson was seeing a Malfoy of all people.
"I understand if you don't approve, Sirius," Harry said, "but I felt that you should know anyway."
"I…I give you my blessings, Harry. If he really makes you happy, then I won't oppose to this. But I'll be keeping an eye on him, you can be sure of that," he replied, and Sirius shot a glare at Draco.
Harry and Draco stood in the Astronomy Tower, the place where they had first truly kissed. The two looked out of the window and into the gentle black sky, lit with millions of bright stars. The moonlight shone down on them, giving both an angelic quality.
Draco turned to Harry, and he held their intertwined hands in front of them.
"This is the beginning of the rest of our lives together, Harry."
"I know, Draco, and I couldn't want anything else. Being with you…It's the only thing that matters to me."
"I love you," Draco said, and he brought their intertwined hands up and kissed Harry's hand.
"I love you, too, more than life itself," Harry replied and he leaned close and gently kissed Draco. The moonlight illuminated their kiss and gave it an ethereal quality, as if saying that this was the end and all that they had fought for was finally in their hands.
"When the Elemental Wood saves the Elemental Metal from the darkness, and when the Heir of Gryffindor and the Heir of Slytherin save each other, the gray-eyed Dragon will be able to free her love from his prison, and the granddaughter will be able to redeem the grandson by the power of her love."
It's been almost a year since I started this, and my first ever HP fanfic has finally been completed. Yes, I will write a sequel to this, though due to certain circumstances as of now, the sequel will not be up until at least June. Thanks to all of you for staying with me during this time, and I hope to hear from you when the sequel is up! Special thanks to my beta, aurias ve, for sticking with me and helping me with so many mistakes. And without my reviewers and my readers, I wouldn't have found the encouragement that every author needs. Thanks to all who have ever read this fic, commented on it, gave me suggestions, anything. I could not have done any of this without any of you.
