Title: What's with all the singing?

Author: Alive and Dangerous

Rating: PG-13

Fandom: Harry Potter

Pairing: Severus Snape / Harry Potter

Summary: Life at Hogwarts has turned into a musical, everybody just wishes they knew why... And why are the only ones unaffected Harry Potter and a certain potions master?

Spoilers: Probably everything up to OotP, but I've pounded on a certain person for a long time and revived him.

Disclaimer: Like the nice men with the white coats explained to me, I'm not J.K. Rowling and I'm not making money out of this. The songs all belong to their rightfull owners, I think they know who they are and if they don't, they've got a BIG problem.

"And THAT's how you turn a frog into an egg!" McGonagall did a last piroutte before the orchestra and dancers disappeared into nothingness, leaving behind a very stunned class of Gryffindor and Slytherin seventh years and a very flustered teacher. "Okay class, don't forget to do your homework. You're dismissed," the professor said, trying to get back to herself. The Transfiguration classroom was empty before she'd even finished the last word.

"Well, that was... unusual," Hermione commented, being the first one to snap out of her shocked state as she made her way towards the Great Hall with Harry and Ron. "Unusual? Hermione, I've seen unusual... THAT was just weird! And... Kinda creepy. What do you think, Ron? Ron? ... RON!" With that last outburst, Harry managed to get Ron's attention. The redhead had absent mindedly been humming McGonagall's song. "Huh? Oh... I dunno, Harry. It was kinda amusing... And that's..." Ron continued to hum, causing his friends to heave a deep sigh.

The walk towards the Great Hall was quite... unusual, as Hermione called it. They passed two tapdancing first years, Filch who was serenading mrs Norris and three Hufflepuff third years who were singing a song that mostly consisted out of badger, badger, badger. But not even all that could've possibly prepared them for what was coming during lunch...

All seemed quite calm, for a while. The Hufflepuffs were talking about the lunch, the Ravenclaws about the classes, the Gryffindors were talking about stuff that'd undoubtedly get them in trouble and the Slytherins were trying to think of ways to help the Gryffindors to get into trouble. But, apparently one discussion at the Slytherin table was about something else. "I'M NOT MY FATHER!" Draco Malfoy's voice echoed trought the Great Hall, causing all heads to turn to him, right on time to see the complete show, because the young Malfoy began to sing at that exact moment...

"I've been looking for an original sin

One with a twist and a bit of a spin
And since I've done all the old ones
Till they've all been done in, now I'm just looking
Then I'm gone with the wind
Endlessly searching for an original sin"


"
You can dance forever, you got a fire in your feet
But will it ever be enough? You know that it'll never be enough
You can fly in never land and never need to sleep
But will it ever be enough? You know that it'll never be enough
It's not enough to make the nightmares go away
It's not enough to make the tears run dry
It's not enough to live a little better every day
Everything that they taught us was nothing but lies
Everything they they brought us was nothing but bribes
But it'll all be over now"

"All I wanted was a piece of the night, I never got an equal share
When the stars are out of sight, And the moon is down
The natives are so restless tonight
I've been looking for an original sin
One with a twist and a bit of a spin
And since I've done all the old ones
Till they've all been done in, now I'm just looking -
Then I'm gone with the wind -
Endlessly searching for an original sin"

"You can lose yourself in pleasure 'til your body's going numb
But will it ever be enough? You know that it'll never be enough
You can always take whatever you conceivably could want
But will it ever be enough? You know that it'll never be enough
It's not enough to make the nightmares go away
It's not enough to make the tears run dry
It's not enough to live a little better every day"

"Now I'm just looking, for an original sin
I've been looking for the ultimate crime
Infinite victims, infinitesimal time
And I'm so very guilty for no reason or rhyme
So now I'm just looking, and I'm killing some time
Endlessly searching for the ultimate crime"

"I'm applying for a license to thrill
Going out on the edge, moving in for the kill
They'll be hell to pay someday, so put it all on the bill.
Cause we'll always be paying, and paying until
We're beyond expiration, with a license to thrill
I've been looking for an original sin!"

After lunch.

"Hermione?" Harry said in a small voice. "Yes?" came the reply. "I don't think unusual covers it anymore..." "Neither do I, Harry... Neither do I." "Yeah, you were both gaping like fish out the water," Ron interrupted. "It's a good thing I had the sense to start the applause." Harry and Hermione sighed and picked up their pace a bit, down into the dungeons for Potions.
