Meant To BeEvery family has a wild one
well, that's you (isn't it?)
the crazy one
the sparkly one
Oh yes, that's you, darling
the baby of the family
so what you want, you get (right?)
well, not this time, darling
'cause you can't have him
he'll never be yours
the one with lightning in his eyes
and wind in his hair
but he's someone else's prince
(always remember that, darling)
and she's your cousin
the prettyprettypretty one
And she's red to you pink
cherry to your strawberry
fire to your rainbow
& he's lightning
(and lightning starts fires, darling)
and they're perfect together
After all, it's not like he's anything like you
he's the quiet one
while you were always loud
he's the brave Gryffindor
while you're the clever Ravenclaw
But didn't someone say "opposites attract"?
They were smart
'cause they were right
And when fire and lightning fight
storm-boy comes to you
so you get your happy ending after all
all's well that ends w
Fractured FairytalesOnce upon a time
There was a girl
(that's you, darling)
and there was a boy
(there always is, isn't there)
you're pretty, and you know it
(and you're Lucy, so pretty's all you've got)
but for some reason
he chose you
&& you were w-o-n-d-e-r-f-u-l together
but perfect doesn't last long
(didn't you learn from RoseScorpius, darling?)
and, as it turns out
pretty was all you had
Not like her
she's pretty, too
but she's also funny charming smart
and just Lily
and darling, you just can't compete
So you're not really surprised when he tells you
"Luce, it's just not working out"
because he's right
and he never really loved you
(who cares if you loved him?)
So now instead of LucyLysander
Just remember, darling
that not all fairytales have a happy ending
if she's Juliet
and he's her Romeo
then that makes you Rosaline
and nobody cares about her
What's done is done, lover-girl
this story's over
the book is close
The middle child
By your beautiful older sister
And your charming younger brother
Even by your parents
The beautiful witch and the wizard who's a hero
(and bears the scars to prove it)
You're just star girl
And no one will ever care
He's a twin
(so he knows what it's like to share the spotlight)
& he has to live up to expectations too
Of his loony mother
And his brilliant father
(but it doesn't seem to bother him)
And everyone says you're perfect together
And you are
The picture perfect quiet couple
And then he's storm-boy
The boy with lightning in his eyes
And if anyone knows anything about expectations,
You feel free with him
No expectations at all
But he's got a happily- ever- after too...
Because she's flower-girl
(just like her mother)
(just like her father
RoyaltyOnce upon a time
there was a king
and a queen
but there was also
all icy white beauty
And then there was the princess
she was beautiful, too
(in her own way)
all warmth and sunshine and heart melting smiles
giggles and dizziness
And then there's the king
(that's you, boy)
and something unexpected happened
because never before
has a king
fallen for a princess
But when asked to choose between
(the snow queen)
(the flower princess)
the choice was simple
who wants a snowflake
when you can have a flower petal?
StarFlowerFlowers are pretty, aren't they?
Bu you don't really like them, do you?
Sure, they're pretty
But they're not beautiful
Everyone likes them
And they expect you to
But you don't
For example, there are roses
sososo cliché (just the sorta thing you hate)
that deep dark red, so pretty
those smooth, soft petals, so soft
but roses have thorns
(and who likes thorns?)
Then, there are lilies
They're pretty, too
That strawberry pink shade
And they don't have thorns
But flowers die so quickly
You've just started to enjoy them
when they fade
don't be so picky, boy
if you don't like roses or lilies
what do you like?
You don't like flowers at all?
Oh, I understand
You like stars
That makes sense
After all, you're named after them
Stars are distant, but still visible
and when you take the time to look at them
sparkling, glittering, wonderful
just like her
(of yes, there's a girl. there's a
InsanityYou fit so well in his arms
and he pulls you close
and he smells nice
like the quidditch pitch
and the pure insanity of what you're about to do
Because with james potter
a kiss isn't just a kiss
it's an answer
"Always and forever, Lily-flower"
you're ready to promise
because the answer is yes
(has always been yes)
and surprisingly enough (not)
a future with James
doesn't sound so bad anymore
what's the worst that could happen?
You kiss him
and you promise
it's a promise
for the future
it's an answer
one's he's been wanting
for just around
f o r e v e r
"Yes James, I'll go out with you"
(you think later)
you can't really
you can try
but it has a way
of working out in the end
(life's funny like that)
AlwaysYou never had much luck with boys, did you, Lily- flower?
Well, that's what comes from being the youngest
All the older girls got the guys
and you were left with a broken heart
The first one
He was always so sweet
And you loved him (or, at least, you thought you did)
Bu turquoise clashes with strawberry
it looks better with white- blond
he never loved you, darling
it was always Teddy&Victoire
Then the next one
you never had a chance
you may be pretty, darling
but he's in love with your cousin
&& she's beautiful
he's already got a flower, darling
it was always Scorpius&Rose
The third one
well, you were close with this one
but Roxanne was always better than you
and he was too old anyway (who cares?)
but that didn't stop your heart from breaking again
when you found out
it was always Roxanne&Lorcan
And then the last one
Just when you thought you would never love again
he glided into your heart
and glued it back together
and he's so caring thoughtful sweet
Snow White and Rose RedSnow White and Rose Red
When you were little, it was your favorite fairytale
She was always your favorite
& she's just like you
You, with your
And longlonglong lashes
And beautiful red curls
But if you're Rose Red, who's Snow White?
Don't kid yourself, darling
Snow White was always your cousin
With her deep hazel eyes
Straight strawberry hair
And pale complexion
(you don't have anything in common, do you?)
Except for him
You got to him first
You blazed your way to his heart
With stolen kisses,
And beautiful blissfulness
And then, just when you thought he was yours,
She floated into his heart
With her carefree laughter,
All warm summer days,
Swims in the ocean
And pure happiness
But you're beautiful
But you're the one he wants
Stop kidding yourself
Have you forgotten how the fairytale ends?
Snow White gets the prince
And the ha
Happily Ever AfterThey say happily- ever- after
Only happens in fairy tales
But they're wrong
Because their story has one
He's curious, thoughtful, turquoise
She's curious, sweet, white- blond
&& they were best friends forever
He has a lot of friends
And even a few girlfriends
(she's not jealous! She's not!)
But he's only turquoise with her
And then on the last day of summer
They're sitting together under that big tree
Recalling happy times
In that way
That only old friends can do
He turns to look at her
And her breath catches in her throat
'cause through all the years she's known him,
he's never seen that look in his eyes before
But when he kisses her
She knows what that look meant
They say happily- ever- after
Only happens in fairy tales
But they're wrong
Because that's how their story ends
This Girl"Bet I can beat you to the tree!"
"What? No way!" Lily smirked at my twin brother, Lorcan. "I bet you my Cornelius Agrippa chocolate frog card that I'll get there before you "
Lorcan's eyes bugged out. My brother is a bit of a freak when it comes to those trading cards. He's spent all of his money and my money, trying to obtain that one glorious card, ending up with a huge pile of throw-aways. "Deal!"
"IF!" Lily smiled a devilish smile. "If you lose, you'll have to buy me anything I want off of the candy cart for all my seven years at Hogwarts."
Lily turned to me, tying her long red hair up in a ponytail. "Lysander, can you go down to the tree and tell us who wins?"
I nodded, and shuffled over to the large oak tree on the other side of the Potter's backyard. "Alright, um READY!" Both got into their start positions. "SET! GO!"
Lorcan and Lily took off, running straight at me. Lily pulled a little ahead of my brother, which got him riled up. Knowing my brother he wasn'
Disappear - ProloguePrologue
Lily sifted through a trunk of musty objects she had found in her attic that rainy summer's day. Yes, it was highly unoriginal, but she had nothing better to do.
She stuck her hand back in the mess, rooting around for something interesting, when she pricked her pinkie. She held her finger up and observed the small drop of blood welling up and trickling down her finger. I'll get Mum to mend it later. She thought. She sucked on the gash absentmindedly and pulled out a mirror shard.
Indifferent, she stared at her sliver of her reflection, her icy-blue eyes.
Wait a moment. Her eyes are green.
Lily gasped and held the mirror closer, but as quickly as her eyes had turned blue, they were green again. She studied the mirror a moment more, but brushed the sudden change off as a trick of the light.
Still, slightly freaked out, she wrapped the mirror in her scarf and stowed it in her dresser.
Where it was forgotten.
How to Get to Potions ClassLily stared down at the schedule in her hands, her books slung in her bag over her shoulder. She was looking for Potions class and the room seemed to be avoiding her. "Okay. I need to take this staircase..." She muttered quietly as she walked through the halls. She took a deep breath before stepping onto the stairs which promptly decided to move. She clenched her fists and let out a frustrated sound that was a mix between a groan and a scream and a sort of cawing noise that a crow might make. Lily held onto the railing for a moment before moving back down and looking around.
"You lost, sis?" She looked up and saw James and Albus with a couple of their friends walking by.
"Oh, thank Merlin. James, please. How do I get to potions? I'm going to be late." Lily explained, offering him her schedule. He turned to Albus and laughed before he took her schedule and glanced at it.
"Well, you see. You are going to have to figure it out." James said with a laugh before walking past again, dropping
Dance With MeScorpius Malfoy sat in the corner of the Great Hall, listening to the Weird Sisters bellow music to the crowd of Yule Ball dancers without the aid of mics. The Hall sparkled with enchanted icicles and glittering ornaments, and fairy lights shimmered in the twelve Christmas trees. Leaning back in his chair with his feet crossed at the ankles, Scorpius watched as a cloud of magic silver bubbles floated overhead, wondering absently who had thought to create those.
"Hey, Scor!" the bright, happy voice distracted him from his musings and he jerked his eyes away from the bubbles. Lily Luna Potter stood before him, dressed in a flowing teal gown with her hair falling in scarlet waves down her back. She smiled, holding out her hand to him, and her dark eyes glittered. "C'mon."
"Excuse me?" Scorpius raised a pale brow, glancing over her shoulder to see her cousin Hugo glaring at him before returning his attention to her, doing his best to appear disinterested. Lily wasn't fooled.
Leaves The back yard is littered with splashes of red and orange and gold, fallen from the ancient trees that line the back fence and that were missed when James did the raking earlier. Lily stomps through them on her way to the gate, delighting in the crisp crunching sound they make under her shoes. Autumn has come early this year, invading the last few days of August with its chill; in just two days, she'll be back at Hogwarts for her sixth year, with all the friends that she has missed over the summer.
The gate swings open before she reaches it and Albus stumbles through, his cheeks red from the cold and his feet clumsy from laughter. Behind him, Scorpius follows, hands in his pockets and a sly smirk on his face that tells Lily that he is the source of Al's amusement.
Her brother strides up to her with a smile and hugs her tight, lifting her off her feet and spinning her around as though he hasn't seen her in weeks. Then he drops her in a mound of
Grandmother's FriendMr. Weasley. Ms. Potter, cried their charms professor. Report to the Headmistresses office immediately!
Both first years picked up their bags and rushed out of the classroom. I cant believe you actually did that, Hugo, said Lily Potter as she laughed.
I cant believe you laughed, retorted her cousin, Hugo Weasley.
The class had been asked to practice the Levitation Charm. Hugo had decided to levitate the professors seat as she was about to sit down. Lily had seen what had happened and laughed. The professor thought she was the mastermind and had sent them both on their way.
Lily pulled her red hair back into a pony tail from the hair band on her wrist. She looked over at her cousin who was trying to flatten his curly brown hair. She stopped walking and turned toward him.
Stop that, she said.
He looked at her, Stop what?
She tried to fix his hair the best she could. Stop trying to flatten it.
Real LifeOnce upon a time,
in a land far away,
a beautiful princess was born.
She had sky blue eyes
and golden hair
This isn't a fairytale!
this is life
And a girl was born
but she's not some fairytale princess
all green flashing eyes
and fire red hair
she jumped into life
and mouth open
-time goes by-
It's her 13th birthday
she shines like the sun
in pink chiffon & lace
haven't we gone over this?
life's not a fairytale!
not even close
It's her 13th birthday
but she glows like fire
in a t-shirt & jeans
and she couldn't be happier
-she grows older-
She whirls around
golden curls radiant
against the white ball gown
as she twirls
with her dashing Prince Charming
not even close, this time
because the boy our fireball dances with
isn't any Prince Charming
he's just a boy
trying to outlive
his family's legacy
with the d-r-e-a-m-s
of a new generation
in his eyes
Keep in Touch!
