    Summary

    She took another swig of the bitter tasting ale before looking up, her black eyes gleaming in the flickering fire. "Well?" She sighed deeply. "My oldest friend, I may not survive tomorrow, for the battles I have fought tore their way into my skin. Fate carved a path for me I cannot escape. Yet, none of this would have come to be if it wasn't for you, Ralof. So please, let's mourn what tomorrow will bring. But grin for what the years we have lived through brought us."
    "aye. To the past."
    "To the past."

    Summary

    In which the characters answer questions from all interested parties. Includes:

    * Lord Voldemort's day planner (as transcribed by the soon-to-be-late Severus)
    * Narcissa's lame excuse for making Lucius wear That Hat
    * Does Peter buy his own pants? How about James?
    * Who knows about occlumency really, and what do they know?
    * Is Severus insane, crazy, or merely surrounded by idiots? (Debate!)
    * Which Disney Princess would he be?
    and many, many more!

    A continuing effort made possible by you our readers, and by the letters SOS.
    Ask us anything!

    (Only be warned: if you want a spoiler you're out of luck, and if it's too personal Severus may slip veritaserum in your OJ to balance the blackmail potential. But not in your coffee. He's not an animal.)

    Story is COMPLETE.

    You could pay a psychiatrist to listen to you talk, to help you understand yourself and the situations and people around you, to ask the questions that will make you think more clearly, being quietly supportive while challenging your beliefs.

    Three months on the road, and Derek returns to Beacon Hills at peace with his past and with himself and with a new perspective on life, especially when it comes to the importance of certain people in it and what to do about it.
