Story Summary:   The war has been won, yet the aftershocks continue. The scattered survivors are left to pick up the pieces and find ways to move on. Join the various members of the extended Weasley family as they struggle to rebuild and cope with the consequences. And of course there are still Death Eaters left to find.

Gioia’s Rec:
There is no better HP fanfic writer than Melindaleo. She’s so good, in fact, that (much to her horror) before Deathly Hallows came out, one of her fics was being circulated by plagiarists claiming that it was Book 7, and many journalists plus thousands of HP fans believed it!

This more recent, completed story is a marvelous sequel to DH, covering the immediate aftermath the Battle of Hogwarts through 1 September. She addresses those questions which many of us had about what happened to our heroes after the battle, but before the “Nineteen Years Later” epilogue. How did George cope with Fred’s death? How did the wizarding world treat their new savior? Did Hermione find her parents? Did Harry & Ginny reconcile immediately?

If you like canon-centric, What Came Next fics, you’ll love this novel-length, fun story. I find it far more satisfying Cursed Child was, given CC’s Harry-bashing!

My Only Critique: None
