Summary: In the aftermath of the war, Percy finds that he cannot forgive himself.
This poem was written as a sort of companion/continuation to my fic The Long Way Back; this deals with the consequences of his actions during the war. However, you don't need to read the fic to understand the poem.

This poem/rap was written for the MC Kreacher challenge set by the wondrous Julia (the opaleye). I chose to base the form and feel of the rap on Stan by Eminem featuring Dido. It probably helps if you know the song, but basically there are three voices in this.
Disclaimer: JKR - nope, not me.
Summary: He loved her all his life...
Summary: A rap written for the MC Kreacher Challenge in Poetry Anyone. Slytherin's queen dishes it out. Loosely based around Swish and Flick Wrock and Tik Tok's beat by Ke$ha.
I hear it from everyone,
I'm not who they say I should be
I'm Different, I'm me
The smart one,
The best seeker,
You had it all!
Even a girl who loved you,
So why'd you do it?
I've been pushed too far
The tornado's sucked me in,
and I doubt I'll ever see the light
Every time something happened
You were my shoulder to cry on
Now I'm crying about you
Something I've only done once
You always told me
"Life is like Quidditch,
You play for the thrill."
One of the thousand things
You taught me
Summary: A sorting hat song that I actually wrote for a fic I'm currently working on, set in the Next Gen.

Summary: Snape reflects on losing his one true love.

Summary: A five-stanza companion piece to Hermione Hates, again from GoF to the DH battle, but from Ron's POV. Somewhat blunt, as to his nature.
DH spoilers warning is very mild, but just to be safe.
There is also very mild cursing, but not enough for a warning.

Summary: A poem about how Harry feels as if he's doing everything wrong and is not worthy of the trust Dumbledore has placed in him.
Summary: For me, the start of my grand love affair with the Potterverse didn't begin with Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. No, it started with Prisoner of Azkaban because of the Marauders. This poem is about them and my attempt at a goodbye to four people who inspired me. (Well, Peter - not so much)
Thank you, Julia, for the challenge and for teaching me about villanelles.
