Hey guys! This is it! Even though life kind of got in the way in the middle there, I have reached the end!
I want to say thank you to every single person who read any part of this and I want to say a very big thank you to those who reviewed/favorited/followed this! I really enjoyed writing these, though some of them were definitely difficult.
So basically what I'm saying here is THANK YOU!
FutureThoughts of the future had always been in the back of Harry's mind. Visions of miniature Ginnys running around or laughing with Ron and Hermione when they were old, sitting in rocking chairs on the front porch. A job in the Auror department, protecting the people of wizarding Britain. And of course, in the future he pictured, Voldemort was nothing more than a memory. But those were just fantasies of a normal life that he very often doubted he would ever get the chance to actually have.But when the time came and Tom Riddle died his very human death, Harry's mind was buzzing with the possibilities now open to him. He could be whoever he wanted to be, there was no prophecy determining his fate. He got to choose his fate now.So as he made his way down the very desolate stairs and to the Great Hall after a nice, long sleep, images of a cottage in the country with tiny children running around the backyard floated through his mind. He could see himself with his arm around Ginny, both of them waving as the Hogwarts Express carried their son or daughter off to Hogwarts for the first time. He pictured the two of them doing married couple things with Ron and Hermione- because let's face it, if they don't end up together what kind of future would that even be?When he entered the Great Hall and everyone went instantly quiet and he wanted to flee to the comfort and invisibility of his bed up in Gryffindor tower, it was the sight of Ginny running toward him, the feel of her arms wrapped around his neck, the smiles on Ron's and Hermione's faces, the way that Mrs. Weasley told him how peaky he looked through her tears for Fred that filled his mind and the future was completely forgotten.He wanted to be in this moment, now. Because really, he had the rest of his life to think about the future, and he planned to make it a great one.
Well, there you go! That's it- the end! Please let me know what you think and thanks again to everyone!
