Harry Potter; a name famed from birth by the entire wizarding world, as the boy who lived, who later was named the boy who loved. By now we should all know the story of Harry Potter and his adventures at Hogwarts. From his Arrival at Hogwarts at age 11, sorted in to the Gryffindor House, founder of the Philosophers Stone, discoverer of the Chamber of Secrets, winner of the Tri-wizard Tournament, Founder of Dumbledore’s army, and eventually the savior of the entire wizarding world, with the defeat of Lord Voldemort at The Battle of Hogwarts, during the Second Wizarding War. Once known to be the most feared dark wizard of all time, until his defeat by Potter that day. But what do we know of what transpired after his success at the Great Battle? Harry married childhood friend; Ginevra Molly Weasley, sister to his best friend Ronald Bilius Weasley.

Harry and Ginevra had married sometime after The Second Wizarding War. They had three children together; James Sirius Potter II, Albus Severus Potter, and Lily Luna Potter. After the then Minister for Magic Kingsley Shacklebolt permitted those who had fought in the final battle to become Aurors without getting their N.E.W.T.s, Harry became an Auror for the Ministry. Sometime after, In 2007 Harry had become the youngest Head of the Auror office at only 27 years of age, and with best friend and fellow Auror Ronald Weasley, and Hermione Granger they helped to reform and revolutionize the Ministry forever.

Following the war, he aided in the care of his godson, Teddy Lupin, thus fulfilling his role that his own godfather, Sirius Black, never got to play.

Harry had many friends and teachers who supported him throughout the Second Wizarding War, his Groundskeeper and friend Hagrid, his two best friends Ronald Weasley and Hermione Granger, then Headmaster of Hogwarts Albus Dumbledore, said to be the greatest wizard that ever lived other than Harry himself. Throughout his years at Hogwarts and beyond, Harry left a legacy, with three children, revolutionizing the Ministry with new spells, and all new magical reforms all around.

Sometime after the Second Wizarding War, Hermione “Granger” Weasley, eradicated the old laws biased in favor of Pure-Bloods also brought a new Class to Wizarding schools, Wand-Making, made to be the first class for all students widely. Hermione saw it fit that everyone should be able to learn this skill and taught it in their first years with highly practiced teachers in the art of wand making.  

It has now been one thousand years since the Second Wizarding War, and many things have changed at Hogwarts, the history of that time will forever be remembered as one of the greatest victories in the wizarding world, and a time of legends and heroes. The castle still stands with few changes to its exterior and some changes to its architecture for the appropriate needs of current day magical education. Approximately 100 years after the battle, a museum was created in the old Chamber of Secrets, with a new pathway to the Chamber, now called the Chamber of Memories it holds precious items of the past that played significant roles such as; the sword of Gryffindor, an advanced potion making textbook that had once belonged to the Half Blood Prince aka Severus Snape, a time turner, Albus Dumbledore’s Deluminator and among other magical items, although the two most notable item’s in the museum, far more protected by powerful charms, was the wands of Lord Voldemort aka Tom Riddle, a 13 ½ inch with a Phoenix feather core and the wand of Harry Potter an 11 inch which also had the Phoenix feather core from Albus Dumbledore’s Phoenix Fawkes. Brother wands that have seen such magical history, although believed by some the wand of Voldemort actually belongs to Harry Potter after his victory against him during the Second Wizarding War. This is still unknown; as Potter never used the wand due to the evils it has committed, and the murders of his Parents James and Lily Potter.

The school has been at peace for a thousand years, and with the ever growing knowledge of the wizarding world, there have been many new spells, new potions, new methods of teaching and even new classes it has been a productive and memorable thousand years. Aurors have been renamed to the Dumbledore’s Army of Aurors or better referred to as the D.A.A, students who wish to become DAA must complete their N.E.W.T with an Exceeds Expectations grade, however since the Defense against the Dark Arts classes were made to be more extreme and more open to learning protective and defensive spells, this grade is almost an easy achievement in this time period. Times have changed to such a degree with the revolution that Harry Potter, Ronald Weasley and Hermione Weasley created. In a measurement easy to understand, all first years today, are debatably as powerful as fifth years back in the days of Harry Potter. Current Headmaster of Hogwarts, Head of the D.A.A and a Tri-Wizard Tournament winner Professor Silas Etheridge, noted to be one of the most powerful and wisest wizards in recent history, has made it his priority to achieve the highest standards in Defense against the Dark Arts for all Witch’s and Wizards at Hogwarts.

It is nearly time for a new year at Hogwarts to begin, with all students getting packed and ready to go back to Hogwarts for another year of magical studies, but it is also time for all the new first years to receive their letters for their very first year at Hogwarts, some only to find out about the wizarding world for the first time, and others gritting their teeth just dauntingly waiting for their letters to arrive.

But one boy, living in Birmingham with his two parents Jasper and Lila Verell, young Malus Everell, always said he wanted to be a wizard, but very nervous about receiving his letter, why he was nervous though was very clear indeed.
