In The Shadows

Author's Rambling – I do tend to ramble on a lot, so bear with me.

I'm sorry to anyone that may have been reading The Titans, but I've lost all ideas. When/if I get them back, I shall continue. Maybe. Keep begging.

Yeah, does anyone know why Anne Rice doesn't want any fanfics of her stories on here? Some of my friends have been writing some, and they're very good. But we have no outlet for our wonderful stories.

Full Summary – Virginia Weasley has been in the shadows of her brothers all her life. There is nothing she can do that one of them hasn't already done better.

She's been watching. She's been waiting in the shadows for her time. But when will it come?

I got the idea for this after listening to the Rasmus' album. If you haven't heard it, go listen to it now!

And yes, I know Ginny's full name is Ginevra. But it's too much like Minerva, so I don't like it. She will be Virginia for this story.

Chapter One – In the Shadows again

No sleep
No sleep untill I am done with finding the answer
Won't stop
Won't stop before I find a cure for this cancer

Sometimes
I feel I going down and so disconnected
Somehow
I know that I am haunted to be wanted

I been watching
I been waiting
In the shadows all my time
I been searching
I been living
For tomorrows all my life
In the shadows
In the shadows

They say
That i must learn to kill before i can feel safe
But I
I'd rather kill myself then turn into their slave

Sometimes
I feel that I should go and play with the thunder
Somehow
I just don't wanne stay and wait for a wonder

I been watching
I been waiting
In the shadows all my time
I been searching
I been living
For tomorrows all my life

Lately I been walking walking in circles,
watching waiting for something
Feel me touch me feel me, come take me higher

I been watching
I been waiting
In the shadows all my time
I been searching
I been living
For tomorrows all my life

I been watching
I been waiting
I been searching
I been living for tomorrows
In the shadows
In the shadows

I been waiting

The Rasmus – In The Shadows

Again, Virginia Weasley was pushed aside for her brother. "Oh, Ron!" He mother gushed. "Well done! Five newts!"

She hugged Ginny. But not because she wanted to, Ginny thought. It was just to hug someone. It didn't matter who it was.

She sighed after her mother had moved on to fuss over Harry and Hermione, prompting Bill to ask, "What's wrong, Gin?"

Bill had always been her favourite brother. He seemed to instinctively know when she was upset, and what to do about it.

She forced a fake smile to her face, and said, "Oh, nothing. I just miss Hogwarts already, you know?"

"Yeah, I know, Gin." Her brother, Charlie said jovially. "I always used to miss it like mad. Still do, in fact."

How strange that a question about her should turn into an open invitation for her brothers.

She sighed again, saying, "I'll be in my room if anyone needs me." Of course, nobody except Bill heard her. He nodded. "OK, Gin. Are you sure you're all right?"

She sighed again, saying, "As sure as I'll ever be, Bill."

As she sat on her bed a short time later, she thought of her future last year at Hogwarts. Her letter from Dumbledore was heavy in her hands. "I don't want to open this yet. I don't want to see what Dumbledore has to tell me about next year. I'd rather not know."

Contrary to what she had told Bill, she wasn't missing Hogwarts. She was missing her friends, of course, but the castle got too oppressive for her during the school year.

Her attention was once again claimed by the letter in her hands. What? Was that… did that feel like a badge?

Hands shaking, she hurriedly opened the letter. When tipped up, a small badge fell out. It said HG on it.

She screamed, and ran down to the kitchen where she had left her family.

"What happened, Gin, who's attacking you?" Ron snorted at Bill's question. Yeah, like anyone would bother to attack me.

"The letter… I… the badge…" She ranted incoherently.

"Badge?" That claimed Hermione's attention. "What badge?"

"The HG badge!"

"HG? But that's the head- OH MY GOD! YOU'RE THE HEAD GIRL!"

Mrs Weasley hugged her daughter with tears in her eyes. Finally, I did something none of them could do. None of them could be head girl.

A/R – Well, that seems a god place to leave it.

Please Review, it's good for the soul. Especially mine.
