After destroying the elder wand, Harry, Hermione and Ron returned into the half existent rubble of Hogwarts. Their eyes scanned the hall for the people they knew, alive and well... Well most of them.
As Ron’s eyes reached his family in a far corner, still huddled around a body, the horror returned to him, he unclasped his and Hermione's hands an ran to join them.
As Hermione's eyes came across Harry however, she followed his gaze and met Ginny. She was sat, not with her family, but alone in the opposite corner staring at nothing.

They all stared at her in disbelief. She was right though, it is over, people didn't die in vain and things have changed.
Harry too then broke the silence that had followed Luna's speech. All he could do was look around the circle, look everyone in the eye and, addressing them and anyone else who was listening he said 2 words:
