Epilogue compliant? No, extremely AU

Author's Notes: This story is very much AU. The events of HBP happen, except Draco is not the one chosen for the mission to kill Dumbledore, so alas, no Sectumpsempra bathroom scene! It is not compliant at all with DH and Harry, Ron, and Hermione did not begin the hunt for Horcruxes until after their seventh and final year. I tried to stick as close as possible to your requests, fr333bird, but there might be a touch more angst than you're comfortable with, though I tried to fit in moments of lightness here and there! The story was inspired by one of my favorite Breaking Benjamin songs, lyrics to be found at the beginning of the fic.
