I own nothing.
The light flashed before his eyes, as the spells connected, and a thunderous noise rose around the Great Hall, then for what felt like forever, a sudden silence overtook the room. It felt like everything and everyone around him stopped in their tracks. He scanned his surroundings, Death Eaters and Order Members alike, frozen all watching the rebounded spell hit Voldermort, his mouth open in a scream of denial as he fell.
Harry couldn’t help but laugh at the sight of the most feared dark lord frozen mid fall, with terror on his face. He shook his head and tried to figure out why time seemed to have stopped, but he alone was still able to move, but was shocked out of his daze by an invisible force touching his face.
“We planned for this dear one, it is why I told you to prepare and carry your wealth and belongings on you, before this day. You have everything important to you, don’t you, dear one?” Harry relaxed at the sound of that sweet voice. His body felt like it had been infused with love as the hand ran down his cheek.
“Yes, I have everything. There is nothing else for me here, all I have loved are gone now.”
“Not all dear one. You have made many sacrificed, suffered much at the hands of a greedy world that would pull at you. It is time that some sacrifices were made for you. The one that has saved this world from devastation and war. The outcome is unbalanced, too much has been taken from you, too many have disregarded you.” The once invisible force became fluid, misting into view out of nothingness and taking the form of a beautiful lady. Harry gasped as she slowly came into view.
“Mum?” Harry asked as he finally saw the figure in front of him. She smiled at him, her green eyes sparkling in the dim light of the great hall.
“Well you could call me that if you like, I am technically the Mother of all of you, but no I am not Lily. Though we do look remarkably alike. She was one of my favourite children.”
She sighed as her hand skimmed down his face, her eyes soft as she looked upon him. So much pain, all unnecessary in her mind, too many people thinking they knew better than her. She smirk as she took his hand in hers, “it’s time, my precious one.” Harry saw her fade as sound slowly came back to him. He had enough time to hear the cheers as Voldermort fell, before he felt like he was falling, his vision blurring, and just before he lost consciousness, he could have swore he heard her soft laugh, as the voices around him turned from celebration to screaming in horror at the sight of their saviour, vanishing from sight.
Godric stood on the rooftop, smiling as he waited for the sun to come and take him from the world. He grew so weary of it all, the pain, the suffering. He had wished he would, after two millennia, find his true mate, but he had not, and did not believe it was possible after all this time. He had suffered to much, given too much, and done too much, the he truely believe the if he hadn’t found his match by now, maybe he had been forsaken. After all his beginning had not been happy at all. He had be used and abused, and in return had done the same for a millennia, teaching his progeny the same disdain for humanity, hunting them for sport and relishing in their blood and pain. Until he realised the emptiness he felt inside, the total detachment that caused an ache in him.
He turned to look at Sookie, the human Eric was so fond off, and smiled at the sight the greeted him, “A human with me at the end, and human tears. Two thousand years and I can still be surprised. In this, I see God.” He turned back just as the sun began to rise, but was distracted by the sudden popping sound accompanied by a bright light, stunned as he stared into the brightest green eyes he had ever seen. “True Mate,” he whispered in awe, before the first rays of the sun hit him.
His mind raced as he felt the true death begin, he had time to grab his mate and move out of the sun before he was taken. It was at that moment he was frozen in place and he felt the heat of the sun, but did not burn. Shocked he turned to face the sun and watched it rise for the first time in millennia without burning. The sun warmed his skin in a way he could not remember, and he heard a whisper through his mind, that he never thought he would hear again, since his time in England, “I have never left you child, I just had to wait for your gift to be ready.”
Harry tried to get his bearings as he landed on what appeared to be a rooftop, the sun was just coming over the horizon, and a boy stood, shirtless, staring at it, before turning to face him. He had just enough time to realise there was a girl on the roof as well, before he was lost in the blue/green eyes of the boy, no man, staring at him . It took him seconds to realise he was in the presence of a vampire, and an ancient one at that, before he heard the whispered, “true mate,” for this man. He then turned back to the sun and Harry couldn’t understand why he wasn’t burning, then he heard her voice.
“Godric,” Sookie screamed as she realised he wasn’t burning, “Eric, oh my god, Eric, he’s not burning.” Harry turned to look at the hysterical girl, and tried to understand what was happening, when a blond man burst out of the side door, and as soon as the sun touch him started to burn. He looked like he could not move as he started at the man, Godric, he remember the girl calling him, before a light surrounded the blond, Eric, he assumed, and he stopped burning and healed.
“What the fuck is going on?” Eric asked as he realised he was fine and healing.
“It seems my true mate is a wizard,” Godric stated, turning and smiling down at Harry, who had not moved from his position on the ground. “It does not look like I will be dying today.”
“This boy, this human, he saved you?” All could hear the disbelief in Eric’s voice as he spoke.
“Not just any human, this would be Harry Potter, wizard, and saviour of the Wizarding World,” Godric said as he eyes shifted back and forth, like he as viewing a movie. Which he indeed was. Lady Magic, was sharing his true mates life with him. It was over almost as soon as it started, but Godric could see why this would be his mate. They shared a lot of pain and suffering, though he had to admit, his was a little more damaging and dramatic that Harry’s but he could not take away from all the young man had suffered. “Master of the Death, it seems.”
Harry did not have to ask how Godric knew about him, Lady Magic had kept him informed of all she had shared, meaning everything, with Godric. He picked himself up off the floor and adjusted his clothing. “What happens now?”
