Epilogue compliant? Ambiguous, as although epilogue relationships are involved, kids aren't mentioned. It's probably not :).
Artist's Notes: According to Google, Honoré de Balzac reckons: "Great love affairs start with Champagne and end with tisane," and Henry Fielding would have it that "Love and scandal are the best sweeteners of tea." The vast majority of quotes on tea wax lyrical regarding its soothing properties in times of stress (I myself maintain a healthy addiction to the stuff). With Narcissa Malfoy on the warpath, that had better be one hell of a cup. Also, there is a story in here somewhere about how Draco and Astoria had little competitions to see who can pick up the prettiest couple, and another that makes sense of Ginny wanting to be anywhere near Draco with his kit off but, for now, let's just pretend that it all makes sense, shall we? I do hope you enjoy this, Lee, and that your first HD Hols has been full of sexyfuntiems!
