[TM] "That's something I think is growing on me as I get older: happy endings."  
When Teddy was a little boy, he used to love to listen to stories before bedtime and any other time that someone wanted to tell them to him. His favorite ones were about adventures, and duels, and dragons. Especially dragons. In the end things were always resolved, and endings were usually happy. Of course they were. Things always worked out in the end, after all.

Now, as he holds his little girl in his arms and whispers into her hair while she rests against his chest, it's his turn to tell the bedtime stories. It will be his turn to tell them whenever his daughter asks for them. It's his turn to tell her about duels, and dragons, and a princess named Sophia. He can already hear her exclaim, "That's my name too, Daddy!" when she gets older and is able to associate her name with the story. Just the thought brings a smile to his face.

Things are never quite what one wants them to be. Teddy Lupin has learned that throughout the years, but he isn't worried. Not when Victoire wraps her arms around him and their baby, and not when he's holding their daughter in his arms.

Things always work out in the end, after all.
