A lot can happen in fifteen years. In the last fifteen years I had graduated from Hogwarts and became a Healer and Potion Brewer. Victoire and Teddy had gotten married and had a daughter. At the same time, a lot can stay the same after fifteen years. After fifteen years there still wasn't a Wolfsbane Potion that worked for my brother, but I wasn't going to give up. Some things should never stay the same.

They say smell is the most powerful sense in forming memories. Even after the sights and sounds of a memory begin to fade, a smell can bring it back nearly as clear as it was when it was first experienced.

It's always the smell of a warm treacle tart that brings me back to my final night at Hogwarts, the night that Remus told me everything and we decided to take on the world together. We knew nothing of what was to come that final night in the one place both of us called home.

There were some things that you got used to in life. I got used to Hogwarts and came to love it. I got used to England, its weird weather, and suffering through Quidditch matches during blizzards. But there were some things I would never get used to and one of them was Matt's lycanthropy. If I was used to it, I would be able to sleep the night of the full moon instead of staring out the window until sunrise.
