Epilogue: A World All Our Own

Another day... Another reality... At last the world makes sense to Harry as he lays beneath his master, and a soft 'take me' comes from his mouth. Everything is as it should be.

'Even if I say it'll be alright...' Luna backed out of becoming a vampire in order to become a dementor beside Death of Innocence. 'Still I hear you say you want to end your life...' Instead, Hermione, who started dating Rip Van Winkle the day after they saved him, became a vampire about a month later. 'Now and again, we try to just stay alive.'

Harry throws his head back when Alucard finally enters him, the first time ever since they got together. "M-master!" He's beyond ready, but he knows that it's all up to the older vampire. "Please."

"As if I could deign you..." Pressing butterfly kisses, Alucard travels down his neck as he thrusts gently, unwilling to hurt him. Eventually his lips land on top of the boy's jugular vein, sinking in to raise the boy's euphoria.

Harry clutches to him tightly to steady himself as he cries out repeatedly, pushing back as best as he can, and when Alucard's fangs nip his neck, he shouts, "y-yes! B-bite me, Master!" The moment those pearly eyeteeth pierce the teen's flesh, he's screaming out his release, unable to last through the wondrous feeling of having his blood drained despite being already dead. It's almost like the blood is flowing within his veins again... It's like he's alive. 'Maybe we'll turn it all around 'cause it's not too late; it's never too late...'

"Ina!" Harry whines, staring directly into the strict woman's eyes without flinching. "I want to stay here with Master!"

"You are going back to school!"


"Back to school!"

He sighs and mutters a 'fine', then turns his attention to the silently laughing vampire. "Alu... can we go back to Paris?"

"Maybe for Christmas."

He giggles and launches himself into the elder's arms. "Okay!" Snuggling into the red coat, he thinks, 'maybe we'll turn it all around 'cause it's not too late; it's never too late. It's not too late; it's never too late'

And it's true. For the great vampire, Dracula's Matryoshka, nothing's impossible, nothing's too hard or too late. It's never too late for anything... After all, he's got all the time in the world.

Ring around the Rosie
I want the dead to know me
I'm not scared to
Show my face to them

Ring around the Rosie
You should have listened to me
Now they are around us
And you will die

Ring around the Rosie
Pocket full of posie
Ashes, ashes
They all fall down...

Well, it's over now! Took me bloody long enough. Anyway, hope you all enjoyed the series!
