Ch. # Chapter Title Word Count Reviews
1 “The death of Vernon Dursley, and reflections on Marriage”

I want to thank my beta FriendofMolly for some critical work on this chapter.

As you can tell, I don’t like Vernon Dursley. At all.

2 CH 2, The Attack at the Funeral

The funeral.

3 CH 3, Albus’s First Battle

Thanks to FriendofMolly for help with the last chapter and this one. Her title is better than my “Albus, What did you Do?”

4 CH 4 Celebrations Big and Small, 2008-2009

I want to thank my Beta for the chapter title, as well as her valuable help with Christmas.

6 CH. 6 Christmas of the Magi

I have seen the word Magi used in more than one story. I think it is a natural to call witches and wizards Magi. This chapter goes all the way to the fall of 2010, and includes part of my “Tiny Tim, a Shaggy Kneazle Story”, from Harry’s point of view.

7 CH 7 A Mother and Son Reunited

If you have read my stand alone story “Tiny Tim, a Shaggy Kneazle Story,” some of the dialogue is lifted right from that story. As usual some minor but critical changes after input by my beta FriendofMolly. In the north of England you call your mother “mam” instead of “mum.”

8 CH 8 Al Travels and Speaks Out

Chapter title by FriendofMolly. Thank you.

9 CH 9 Baptisms

Thanks friend of Molly for her help in getting the next few chapters ready.

10 CH 10 Christmas at the Weasley and Malfoy Households

I am back, trying to finish this story.  I could use a new Beta.  Meanwhile, if you have not read my stories you need to start with The First Year, the first of my Almost Happily Ever After series of stories.

11 CH 11 Harry’s New Elves

Thanks to FriendofMolly for encouragement and helpful tweaks.  I need reviews to continue to post to this site.

12 CH 12 A New School Year and Albus’s Old Nemesis

The title is again by FriendofMolly.  I could use another Beta. 

 For my American readers, all the rest of the world calls what American’s call Soccer by its proper name, “Football.”  Albus is English.  He doesn’t play American Football, but Football.

13 CH 13 The Evolution of the Magical World

The Swiss Elfish names are all taken from the Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien.  The elves bear no or only a superficial resemble to their namesakes, but using them was quite intentional.


I answer every review, and my Beta FriendofMolly and I would appreciate more.

14 CH 14 Muggle Music

Music credits at the end of this chapter.  If you have never seen the Abbot and Costello skit “Who’s on First” it is worthwhile to Google it before reading this chapter. 


To the person who nominated me for a comedy award on SYIE, thank you.  I hope this meets your expectations.

15 CH. 15 The Fifteenth Anniversary of the Battle of Hogwarts

Five more years before Albus and Rose attend one of these as students, and only four and a half before Albus starts Hogwarts.  Thanks to everybody who has been reading so far, and especially to FriendofMolly who has been my beta for most of the saga.


Reviews are always appreciated, and I need book covers if you have any skill in that area.

16 CH. 16 “The ICWW”

Very critical additions and corrections by my beta FriendofMolly. 


As always, reviews make both of us very happy.

I'm back.  I will try to post regularly.

18 CH 18 Kreacher

Much thanks to FriendofMolly, my former and most faithful beta.  This was a hard chapter for her to read, and she was much help in a couple of key areas.

19 CH. 19 Albus and Mapping

Dis and Frerin are Dwarf names from the appendix of” The Lord of the Rings” by JRR Tolkien.  This chapter was originally titled “Buzzing Maps and Decorating Dollhouses.”

20 CH 20 Prophesy and Perfume

Thanks to my fantastic Beta Arnel, I now know that what Americans call a “ball point pen” is a “biro” in Great Britain. As usual, both Arnel and FriendofMolly contributed to this chapter.  Thank all of you for reading.  We would really appreciate reviews.

21 CH 21 The Spring Gryffindor Quidditch Match.

Thank you, Arnel and FriendofMolly, for your work on this chapter.

22 CH 22 Emergency Map Making

Thanks as always to FriendofMolly, who contributed a few key phrases, and caught at least one big, dumb spelling mistake.

23 CH 23 A Difficult Christmas Eve

As always, FriendofMolly and I love reviews.

24 CH 24 Christmas Morning, 2014

In the USA what the British call a Jumper is called a Sweater.

25 CH 25 Promotions

FriendofMolly again caught a couple of embarrassing mistakes, and contributed to the story. As always, thanks.

26 CH 26 Something Wicked this Way Came

Thank you, FriendofMolly, for the title, and helpful tweaks for a hard chapter. The title is, of course, a play on the famous Ray Bradbury novel “Something Wicked This Way Comes.”

27 CH 27 Harry Potter and the Crystal Ball

We have been struggling to come up with a better name for the Domestic Affairs Unit.  Suggestions would be appreciated.  As always, reviews are most appreciated.

28 CH 28 Problems between Goblins and Elves and Wizards

Occasionally my Beta tells me I need some major changes in a chapter, and she is almost always right.  Thank you, FriendofMolly.  Reviews are always appreciated.  I could use a new Beta as well, as of 2019.

34 CH 35 Getting Albus ready for Hogwarts

I promised a nineteen year story, and it is finished, but I am not.  The story grew on me, and having finished book 1 of 4, 2 of 4, 3 of 4, and 4 of 4, I am hard at work on book 5. 


Thank you for reading.  Thank you, FriendofMolly, for being my Beta for most of this series.
