Story Notes:
I wasn’t going to write a sequel, but a lot of people expressed interest in seeing the issues between Harry, Sirius and Molly be handled.  A couple of people expressed disappointment in me for having Harry forgive his friends so easily in ‘All I Want For Christmas’.   I believe in forgiveness (not necessarily for every scenario but for most).  Forgiving and forgetting aren’t the same thing.  Harry didn't forget as he promised Ron he would never let that happen between them again or let Ron get away with that sort of behavior again.  Carrying around the burden of hurt and hate is oftentimes more harmful to the person carrying those feelings than the one those feelings are aimed at.  Forgiveness is one way of letting those things go.  Forgiving doesn't always mean forgetting and acting as though it never happened.  In ‘All I Want For Christmas’ for Harry and his friends forgiveness meant growth for all of them.  Going about life never forgiving those who have slighted or wronged us is a miserable way to live and I didn't want that for Harry.  Harry didn't want that for himself when it came to his friends.  He wanted the ordeal to be ‘over with’.  With that being said, it isn’t always easy to forgive those who have hurt us, especially if wary that it will happen again, and forgiveness doesn’t always happen quickly, as we will see is the case between Harry and the adults he feels have let him down.
