“Reconciliation should be accompanied by justice, otherwise it will not last. While we all hope for peace it shouldn't be peace at any cost but peace based on principle, on justice.” ~Corazon Aquino
“Reconciliation is to understand both sides; to go to one side and describe the suffering being endured by the other side, and then go to the other side and describe the suffering being endured by the first side.” ~Thich Naht Hanh
Nearly two years after the final fall of Lord Voldemort, the Wizarding World finds itself turned on end. Following the assassination of Kingsley Shacklebolt, Wizengamot elder Tiberius Ogden is sworn in as the new Minister of Magic, changes are made, turning the world on end. As the graduates of Hogwarts head out into the real world, they encounter stricter laws while using magic, challenging situations in internships and apprenticeships, and even more bends and breaks along the road of reconstruction. In this post bellum society, shifts in government, jobs and societal reorganization are expected. But will the unexpected make the world go round or will it make the world stand still?
Harry Potter is training as an Auror. The Malfoys work to re-establish their place in society and adapt to a world where blood purity holds less and less meaning, even to their son who has fallen in love with a Muggle-born. The Weasley family begins to accept the hole left by Fred's death without forgetting him. Molly encourages weddings and grandbabies despite her less than cooperative children. Fenrir Greyback is brought down. A murderer is brought to justice. The Lestrange brothers remain at large, along with other former Death Eaters, and seek to create chaos in the wizarding world.
