A Dream, a Nightmare, and a Wish All Come True

I don't own Harry Potter.

After the war, Harry wakes up in his cupboard. But his dream, his wish, his nightmare— will it come true?


Harry, Ron, and Hermione had just left Dumbledore's old office and they were walking back to Gryffindor Tower, feeling more cheerful then they had in months. The war was finally over! Suddenly, they heard a tapping noise.

"What's that?" Harry asked.

"Up! Get up!" Hermione shrieked suddenly, in a voice that sounded an awful lot like Aunt Petunia's…

Harry's eyes snapped open.


"Get the mail, Dudley."

"Make Harry get it."

"Get the mail, Harry."

"Make Dudley get it."

"Poke him with your Smeltings stick, Dudley."

Harry dodged the Smeltings stick and went to get the mail. He saw three envelopes, one bearing the Hogwarts crest, which Harry recognized from his dream. He turned this one over.

It was addressed to him in green ink.
