Hi, Rose.  I enjoyed reading this, just a little Missing Moment that might have occurred, when Grindelwald's final remark made Albus remember what his mother had said so long ago, that someday her two sons would have nothing left but each other. (I used to remind my two children of that, when they quarreled, although they never became estranged like Albus and Aberforth.)  This story is well-written, with graceful sentences and a nice development of the thoughts behind the dialogue.  A barely spoken apology and a barely indicated forgiveness, but a step in the right direction.  Good job.

Hey, Rose!

I love that feeling of quaintness at the beginning of the chapter (well, before Albus arrives, of course).  I'd imagine Aberforth wouldn't be overly pleased to see his brother after everything that had happened.  

I've always loved the Albus/Gellert dynamic -- having to kill the person you loved.  For Albus, his sacrifice was for the good of the world, and for his family.  To Aberforth, Albus was the indirect reason that Ariana died.  Though Albus seems to want to reconnect with his brother (after having to endure killing Grindelwald), it doesn't seem that Aberforth is ready to accept it.

I do love how they made peace with each other, and how you tied the quote into it, to boot.  The fact that Grindelwald was trying to shake Albus with the quote, and Albus using the words of his mother to both deny him AND toward Aberforths emotion was genius.

I absolutely love the story you crafted around the quote, and how everything tied together in the end!

Amazing job!
