Disclaimer: I own neither Harry Potter or Miss Independent. And Kelly Clarkson RULES! (just like Ruthie!)

Btw, this is Lily's POV for the first person, and then it goes to third person.

Miss Independent
Miss self-sufficient
Miss keep your distance, mm

I hate Potter. I hate him and his "Will you go out with me?" act. He's so stupid!

Miss unafraid
Miss out of my way
Miss don't let a man interfere, no

I've never dated anyone, because boys are just so dumb! I can take care of myself!

Miss on her own
Miss almost grown
Miss never let a man help her off her throne

So why do I feel funny whenever Ja- I mean Potter is mentioned?

So, by keeping her heart protected
She never ever feel rejected
Little Miss apprehensive
Said ooh, she fell in love

I don't get it! I couldn't be falling for Potter!

And yet- I think I could.

What is the feeling taking over
Thinking no one could open the door
Surprise, it's time
To feel what's real
What happened to Miss Independence
No longer need to be defensive
Goodbye, old you
When love, is true

He always says he wants to go out with me, but he's just faking. It's to annoy me! He doesn't really like me.

Miss guarded heart
Miss play it smart
Miss if you wanna use that line, you better not start, no

Any boy who had ever said they loved her, she turned down. She didn't want to be someone's possesion, as boys tended to think their girlfriends were.

But she miscalculated
She didn't want to end up jaded
And this Miss decided not to miss out on true love

But this... I can't ignore this, I have to say something, do something.

So, by changing her misconceptions
She went in a new direction
And found inside she felt a connection
She fell in love

There is no denying it. I'm so in love with Potter.

What is this feeling taking over
Thinking no one could open the door
Surprise, it's time
To feel what's real
What happened to Miss Independence
No longer need to be defensive
Goodbye, old you
When love, is true

But as she walked through the corridors, she didn't know if she was imagining it, but there were more people walking hand in hand than usual. James wasn't anywhere she could find.

When Miss Independent walked away
No time for love that came her way
She looked in the mirror and thought today
What happened to miss no longer afraid
It took some time for her to see
How beautiful love could truly be
No more talk of why cant that be me
I'm so glad I finally see

She went back to Griffindor Tower, she saw, again, tons of people who she already knew were dating, sitting together, snogging or talking. She sat down on a sofa.

What is this feeling taking over

Thinking no one could open the door

Suprise, it's time
To feel what's real
What happened to Miss Independence
No longer need to be defensive
Goodbye, old you
When love, is true

Just then James was right in front of her. She stood up, confused. Then, without a word, he kissed her. To his obvious suprise, she kissed him back, not caring the whole common room was watching, clapping, or wolf whistling. A few people were collecting money, even. He pulled away, but she pulled him back. Lily didn't care what she used to be. That was over.

Miss Independent

Like it? I think it came out quite well. But this is what my friend's idea was, and I'll probably send it to him and be like, "Hey! I actually used your idea!" It will probably kill him. Whatever. All I ask is not to have to clean up the dead body.

Ok, review please! I LOVE reviews, and it only takes but a moment... please?

Thank you to Ruth, the poor thing was so confused… but she betaed, and she's the best.

Love you all to pieces,
Jennarnold. Hey. Thats so cool...
