Okay, so, first of all, I was just hanging out on my flight back home and I was like… What if Draco was a drag queen? and then kind of like, builded it off of that. I wanted him to do a performance of "If I Had You"- 'Cause we all know he wishes he had Harry! Anyways, I don't mean to offend, if I have, by this story, and the way I wrote it might be kind of, well, weird or crazy or something, I'm basically basing this off of what I kind of saw from this show- umm, umm, umm… It's a dressmaking show and she makes like, brilliant dresses, Donna Archelli or something like that, it's on TLC, and I was watching it like, a long while ago, and there was this drag performer, so I kind of based Draco's persona (which is what he called his.) after his, they're both fun, and flirty, and I know the performance isn't written the greatest, I wanted it focused on Draco's thoughts, or well, Draco as Adelaide's thoughts about the boy he loves… Kind of? I'm like confusing myself. Okay, so, basically, I'm gonna give y'all a run down.
Adelaide (Addie) Lucian is Draco Malfoy, I may call Adelaide (Draco) a she, but Draco's a he, and yeah. I'm just. Yeah. It's late, okay? Yeah. ENJOY!
Adelaide stared out into the crowd, they were all there to see her! She flashed them a Slytherin-esk smirk, something she had done so often in her Hogwart days, but… Those were Draco's days, not hers. Out on the stage, she was no longer Draco Malfoy, she was Adelaide- Addie, as her adoring fans called her- Lucian. It was a laugh, her last name, it resembled the name of the father her usual self hated, which made what she was doing- her lively hood, that much more enjoyable.
"And now, presenting, Miss Adelaide Lucian." The announcer called out, as Addie took a step out from behind the curtains, she knew she looked good, she was wearing green and silver- her house colours, or his, depending on how you wanted to think about it. "Or, as we know her, by the less pompous name, Addie L- the L stands for Lucious!" The announcer added, reminding her of that annoying Lee Jordan from the Quiditch games.
Addie looked out into the crowd with a regal gaze, she knew she looked amazing, with her long-real-styled platinum blond hair, grey eyes, shockingly red lipstick, and her smile- oh, she was a sight for sore eyes- she was ready to preform. The music came on, a muggle song- not too unexpectedly, she was preforming for the beasts, after all- with a nice danceable beat came on, she moved to it, and right on beat…
"So I got my boots on, got the right 'mount of leather, And I'm doing me up with a black colour liner, And I'm working my strut but I know it don't matter." She sang out, the boys out there were lapping it up, it was a known song, after all, one that brought memories of green eyes, lightning bolt scars, and messy black hair.
"All we need in this world is some love, There's a thin line 'tween the dark side and the light side baby tonight, It's a struggle gotta rumble trying to find it." A familiar voice to one totally smashed Harry Potter sang out. He turned around from the bar stool to look around, and saw a divine looking Queen on the stage, she was singing as if it didn't matter, as if she was royalty and they were all peasants. Heck, Harry almost completely believed it, except for the look that was just behind her beautiful- but fake- mask of power. It was a face full of longing for something, someone. "But if I had you, that would be the only thing I'd ever need, Yeah if I had you, then the money, fame and fortune never could compete, If I had you, life would be a party, It'd be ecstasy." She sang, surveying the crowd. Harry felt her gaze rest on him for a while, but ignored it. He was drunk off of his ass, anyways, and was probably imagining it, just because she looked so… lost and in love with somebody who wasn't there, who would be able to make her life a party. Harry snorted, he obviously had too much to drink.
"You y-y-y-y-you, You y-y-y-y-you, You y-y-y-y-you, If I had you." Adelaide sang, thinking of well, her… his… you, she guessed. The way he had looked when he played Quiditch, the first time they had met, the way that he'd dimly reply to his old insults, the way life shined in his green, green eyes. He was worth more then the money, the fame, and the fortune. Addie wasn't quite sure if she'd trade in to have him, but she was sure it was a lot. She loved that stupid hero, with all her little queen heart. "From New York to LA getting high rock n' rollin, Get a room trash it up 'til it's ten in the morning, Girls in stripper heels, boys rolling in Maseratis." She sang on, remembering all the partying she'd done, all the forgetting she'd tried to do. Every morning she still woke up, hoping to see green eyes and that old familiar grin. "What they need in this world is some love, There's a thin line tween a wild time and a flat line baby tonight, It's a struggle, gotta rumble tryin' to find it." She thought of the fights she had as Draco with Lucius, the silent disapproval from Narcissa, that had changed into acceptance, as soon as she got over the fact that Draco was never going to marry Pansy Parkensen (Thank Merlin, Adelaide thought with a smirk, the girl had been as ugly as a pug.)
"But if I had you, that would be the only thing I'd ever need, Yeah if I had you, then money, fame and fortune never could compete, If I had you, life would be a party it'd be ecstasy, Yeah, if I had you, You y-y-y-y-you." Addie thought of their heartbreaking- at least to her, the Boy-Who-Lived had been oblivious to her feelings, as he should be, considering he was straight, and dating the Weaslette. She never thought they were a great pair, but it wasn't her place to pry. "You y-y-y-y-you, You y-y-y-y-you, If I had…."
"The flashing of the lights, It might feel so good, But I've got you stuck on my mind, yeah!" Just like I always do, Addie thought, as she continued to prowl and preen across the stage, it was her natural habitat, after all. The adoring fans, the hot guys- especially the green eyed one at the bar, he looked like he'd be an easy lay, she thought, as she smirked, and continued on with the show.
"The fashion and the stage, It might get me high, But it don't mean a thing tonight." Harry stared, transfixed on the stage, he wanted to kiss the beauty's neck, the performer reminded him of Draco, he had always had the slightest crush on the blond Slytherin. Even when he didn't admit it to himself, even when he couldn't. He had had the crush when he was running away from himself, from the feelings. He had thought they were unnatural, but… They aren't. Love, is genderless.
"That would be the only thing I'd ever need, Yeah, if I had you, the money, fame and fortune never could compete, If I had you, life would be a party it'd be ecstasy." She sang, and Harry zoned out for a moment, thinking about what if… She was Draco. What if he had the chance to redo it, to take that chance, that risk, and had been himself? Instead of having gone by what Molly had wanted? Instead of trying to love a woman who had never really loved him? Who had only wanted him for the fame and the fortune that came along with his name and his titles?
"That would be the only thing I'd ever need, Yeah, if I had you, the money, fame and fortune never could compete, If I had you, life would be a party it'd be ecstasy." Addie- as the announcer had called her, sang again. Harry wanted to hear Addie's voice forever, there was a beautiful lilt to it, and he wondered what it sounded like when she was talking. He wanted to spend hours just talking about whatever. Maybe about why she chose to do drag.
"Yeah, if I had you, You y-y-y-y-you, You y-y-y-y-you, You y-y-y-y-you, If I had you…" She sang, it was the ending of the song, her time on the stage was coming to an end, in the next hour, she had to disassemble herself and become Draco again, or at least, dig him out of the beautiful makeup that fit him like a second skin. "I bid you, my dear audience, goodbye, until next time, my lovelies… The real world is calling." Adelaide said, with one final pompous move, she bowed, and moved her pretty butt off the stage. Draco already missed it, already missed the glitz and the glamour and the crowd that screamed his stage name, back in wizarding England, he was still the dirt under their shoes, his past crimes still held up and examined and judged.
YEAH! FIRST CHAPTER! Next chapter they'll kind of meet, maybe? I'm not sure just yet. I also kind of have two potential songs, but I'm pretty sure I'll go with "Legs Up" by Jeffree Star, or maybe "Prisoner" or "I feel in Love for the first time" - 'cause those are all really good Jeffree songs. Darn. I knew which one I wanted and now I don't. Oh well.
