The Talent Show

Sorry for like the YEAR wait. I'm sorry truly sorry.

I don't own the songs or characters. I only own the plot and Emma and Jake.

Emma and Hermione stared wide eyed at each other.

Hermione, who was the first to recover from the shock started to apologize, "Professor we're so sorry! We didn't mean to wake-"

"You know Hermy for a witch as smart as you; you'd think that you could tell from Professor McGonagall's expression that she's happy..." Emma said cutting Hermione off from her rant.

"Emma is quite right Hermione, I was just walking back to my room when I heard cheering and decided to check it out. I would really appreciate it if you two would enter the Talent Show it would show Snape up, put him in his spot. Saying no one is talented in this school." The Professor in the room pondered at her words and quickly added, "But you didn't hear that from me."

The group of friends laughed.

"I guess we could do the Talent Show if Hermione agrees to it," Emma said looking expectantly at Hermione.

"Definitely. I'm fine with it, how about you?" Hermione inquired at Emma.

"Of Course!"

"Excellent! You two will definitely give Slytherin a run for their talent! If they have any." The Professor said the last part quietly. "I am over joyed to see such talented sisters in my house!"" Professor McGonagall said smiling happily.

"Thanks," Hermione and Emma said grinning.

"Does anyone else want to try out right now or do you want to wait until the tryouts which are on Saturday, tomorrow to be exact?"

Harry debated at McGonagall's question did he really want to tryout? 'Well of course you do. Don't you want to at least make a sign that you like Hermione?' the pesky voice came back and asked.

"Umm, Professor, I would like to tryout now if it's not too late," Harry said and flushed as everybody started to chatter.

"It's fine, go right ahead," McGonagall said warmly.

Harry then looked around and the edges of his lips curved upwards, "Hey Em, do you mind playing the drums just for more effect?"

Emma smiled and said sweetly, "Of course Harry, anything for you my dear brother."

Draco then looked at the two skeptically and asked, "You can play the drums Emma?"

"Oh Draco, I am capable of doing many things," Emma said dramatically and laughed.

Harry just flashed a smile and went to get his keyboard, while Emma quickly went to grab her drum sticks.

About five minutes later, the two reappeared with their needed items.

Harry went over to Emma and smiled, "You know this song you helped me write it, last year."

Emma looked confused for a second and grinned, "You mean the one that we wrote in the room of requirement after the horrible nightmare at the Department of Mysteries?"

Harry nodded. "Sweet, I love this song," Emma stated sounding pleased.

Harry set up the microphone that was in front of him, so it was his height when he sat down; he hated using the charms on his voice when singing. Harry cleared his throat and sat in front of the Keyboard, "The song I'm going to perform is called, Because You Live."

Staring out at the rain with a heavy heart
It's the end of the world in my mind
Then your voice pulls me back like a wake up call
I've been looking for the answer
I couldn't see that it was right there
But now I know what I didn't know

--Flash Back--

"HERMIONE!" Harry and Emma shouted as Hermione was struck with the purple flame.

Harry and Emma fell to their knees beside Hermione as Neville scrambled out from under a desk. Just then Dolohov's foot came intact with Neville's face.

Neville screamed in pain as blood poured from his face.

"Episkey," Emma said waving her wand at Neville's face.

"Thanks. What did he do to her?" Neville asked concerned.

Because you live and breathe
Because you make me believe in myself when nobody else can help
Because you live, girl
My world has twice as many stars in the sky

It's alright, I survived, I'm alive again
Cuz of you, made it through every storm
What is life, what's the use if you're killing time
I'm so glad I found an angel
Who was there when all my hopes fell
I wanna fly, looking in your eyes

"I don't know. Hermione wake up, come one please!" Harry said biting his lip.

Neville grabbed Hermione's wrist and looked for a pulse, "She's alive."

Harry sighed in relief and looked at Emma who was silently sobbing, "Hey, its okay Hermione will be fine."

"I know, but I just ARGH!" Emma shouted in anger, "I'm going to kill that bastard!"

"Emma, calm down there's nothing we can do!" Neville said trying to calm Emma whose eyes were blazing with fury.

"Watch me," Emma said through gritted teeth and before anyone could stop her, she disappeared.

"Neville, stay here and take care of Hermione. If anything happens to her, well i don't know if you should be scared of me or Emma," Harry said surprised at Emma's sudden flood of anger.

Because you live and breathe
Because you make me believe in myself when nobody else can help
Because you live, girl
My world has twice as many stars in the sky
Because you live, I live

Harry raced after Emma, "Emma," Harry muttered.

"Stupefy!" Harry heard a girl's voice shout. "Never ever mess with me when I'm pissed now BACK OFF!"

Harry was suddenly terrified, not of the Death Eaters but Emma. "Em- Petrificus Totalus!" Harry shouted at a Death Eater behind Emma.

"Furnunculus!" Emma screamed at Bellatrix, Harry watched in horror as red oozing boils appeared all over her.

Bellatrix scream echoed through the halls. Emma then casted one last spell, "Stupefy, I hate you. Go burn in Hell."

"Whoa. You are scary," Harry said laughing lightly.

Emma's eyes went wide, "HARRY BEHIND YOU!"

"Avada Kedavra."

Because you live there's a reason why
I carry on when I lose the fight
I want to give what you've given me always

Because you live and breathe
Because you make me believe in myself when nobody else can help
Because you live, girl
My world has twice as many stars in the sky

Harry and Emma both ducked as the curse flew right over their head and hit Bellatrix square in the chest.

"Ha, another one gone, a lot less crap to listen to," Voldemort said coldly.


"It is, I enjoy it very much, killing mudbloods like you and your dear sister makes me feel great. By the way I already killed your precious sister, and love interest." Voldemort sneered.

Emma looked horrified but the anger deep inside her welled up, "No one lays a hand on my sister you are a Bastard go burn in HELL!"

"You can't kill me I'm way to powerful and you know it."

Harry glared at Voldemort, "You are a son of a Bitch."

"Why thank you. Lets have some fun Harry, Crucio!"

"Not today! Voldie." Emma said as she jumped in front of Harry. Emma screamed horrified of the pain running through her body, but she didn't care as long as it saved Harry, only he can get rid of Voldemort.

"Emma!" Harry stared wide eyed.

"Emma!" Hermione shouted in horror.

"Hermione?" Harry asked looking from Hermione to Emma.

"I woke up," Hermione said answering reading Harry's mind. "Harry listen to me, Love and Light that's the spell to defeat Voldemort. Think Harry think!"

Because you live and breathe
Because you make me believe in myself when nobody else can help
Because you live, girl
My world has everything I need to survive

Because you live, I live, I live

Harry finished his song and continued thinking, if Hermione hadn't woken up, he would never have thought of the spell that was in that book at the Grimmauld Place.

Harry was pulled out of his train of thoughts by clapping and cheering. "You okay?" Emma asked her eyes filled with concern.

"Oh yeah, I'm fine," Harry smiled.

Professor McGonagall laughed fully and said, "I am making it a must for you three to join the Talent Show. But if you do not wish to join you must perform for our up coming Sadie Hawkins Dance."

"WHAT?!!" The crowd of students stated excitedly.

"You students heard what I said, crystal clear, no need to repeat myself," the Professor smirked mischievously. "Now off to your appropriate dorm rooms before I take points away."

The crowd groaned and left quickly afraid of the consequences of lingering for a minute longer.

Once the group disintegrated, Professor McGonagall beamed at the four heads, bided them good night and left.

"Weird," Emma mumbled.

"Just a tad," Harry agreed.

"Did you see how she smirked at us?" Ron inquired.

"Yeah. To much pressure," Emma joked.

Hermione laughed and said, "I can't believe she wants us to perform at the Sadie Hawkins."

"I can't believe we're even having a Sadie Hawkins," Harry implied staring out of the window.

"A Sadie what? Sadie Hawkins? Is it where we have a dance for a hawk named Sadie?"

Emma rolled her eyes and laughed, "Oh yes Ron! It sure is. No you daft child, it's a muggle type dance, where the girls have to ask the guys."

"Oh..." Ron mumbled still sounding confused.

"Harry?" Hermione stated as she tilted her head to the side staring at him.

'She is adorable with her head tilted, I mean look at her bouncy curls, and soft chocolate brown eyes. I wish I could hug her and hold her forever. Maybe this is my chance to tell Hermione how I feel. Through song...'

"Whoa. Sorry I sorta zoned out," Harry shook his head and smiled sheepishly.

"It's okay, well we should go to bed," Hermione announced, "Night boys! Coming Em?"

"Yeah. Night you two sleep tight."

Emma got up from the couch and watched as Harry hugged Hermione good night. 'Those to should seriously get together, honestly!'

Emma walked over to Ron and hugged him and whispered in his ear, "You're a good friend Ronald, night."

Ron smiled as Emma let him go and kissed her on the cheek, "Night Ems."


"Emma!! Ugh. Emma Lynn Granger!" Someone whispered into Emma's ear.

"Hmm? Go away." Emma groaned into her pillow.

"Em, come on I need your help now," The voice insisted.

"To... Early...Later!"

"I'll give you cookie dough," The voice replied.

Emma grumbled, "You and your bargains."

The voice laughed, "Come on, get changed I'll meet you in the common room."

"Fine but you owe me, Harry James Potter." Emma groggily got up and scratched her head.

"Grab your guitar!" Harry added as he walked out the door.

About an hour later Emma finally descended down the stairs in skinny jeans, a baby blue t-shirt that read "hugg me", and her red and black acoustic Fender.

"It took you that long?" Harry smirked with his eyebrows raised.

Emma made a face then replied cheekily.

"Hello, gorgeous," Emma said waving her hands in front of her body. "Hello, you," Emma said waving at Harry. Emma laughed then said, "I'm so kidding!"

Harry and Emma laughed.

"So, what's up? Why am I up at 7 in the morning on a Saturday?"

"Ahhh, that's because I need your help with my plan."

"Plan? For what?"

"Guess," Harry smirked.

"Oh! Your plan to get Mione's attention, kay what is it?"

"Well, as you know I've been writing songs and well singing and such, I was thinking of joining the talent show."

Emma smiled kindly, "You really love her don't you?"

"Yeah, I think I do. I think I've fallen for her," Harry said smiling slightly.

"Awe!" Emma gushed. "But why do you need my help with your diabolical plan?"

Harry chuckled, "I need you to help me find a tune for the song and well, fix up the song. So it's perfect for her."

"Okay, sounds easy..." Emma smiled then asked smugly, "Now, where's my cookie dough?"

I know it's pretty bad but I just started writing again so leave me alone!! lol Just kidding but seriously i know its crap but it will I'm hoping get better.

Cookie Dough for Everyone who reviews!!
