Summary: It's Christmas Eve and Draco sits in The Hog's Head contemplating his chosen path ... and the girl he used to share his dreams with.
This song is a potterfied version of Fairytale of New York which is possibly the best Christmas song of all time. The original was sung by The Pogues and Kirsty MacColl.
I am not JK Rowling, Shane McGowan, or Kirsty MacColl.
The fabulous singer that was Kirsty MacColl died tragically eleven years ago today. R.I.P.

As always, thank you to Julia/the opaleye for setting such wonderful challenges at PA. Thank you also to Minna/minnabird for the comments/crit and Jess/ToBeetc for the punctuation tip.

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.
Also, this is my first ever posted fic-- I hope you like it!
