The aftermath of a war is never pretty.  Beginning just after the trio leaves the Headmaster's Office, we will follow our favorite protagonists as they try to recover from the war.  While the sun seems to be shining on the Wizarding community, the pain of loss and regret continue to hang over the heads of those who led the resistance.  Yet, recovery has its own benefits as we will discover.
