I love Les Miserables, and I thought this song suited Ginny. This is during the fifth book, right after Harry kisses Cho. Cho kisses Harry? I dunno.
I do not own Les Miserables or Harry Potter. There I said it. For the 15th time. I hate disclaimers. We wouldn't be writing on fanfiction if we owned it, people! We'd be reading all the fanfictions!
Ginny watched sadly as they kissed. She turned and began to walk away. She sang a song that she knew in her head.
Pretending he's beside me
How true that was.
I walk with him 'til morning
She didn't want to go back to the dorm. She didn't feel like sleeping. She was going to walk around the castle. If someone found her, who really cared?
him, I feel his arms around me
And when I lose my way, I close my eyes and he has found me
She could imagine him holding her, loving her, but that really wasn't true. And it would never be true. She walked out the oak doors of the Entrance Hall into the pouring rain.
The pavement shines like silver
The grass looked silvery grey in the moonlight.
All the lights are misty in the river
The lake reflected the lights in the windows of the castle, slowly going out as people gradually went to bed.
the darkness, the trees are full of starlight
And all I see is him and me forever and forever
The trees gleamed with the light from the stars. She imagined him by her side for all eternity.
I know it's only in my mind
That I'm talking to myself and not to him
She knew it was just her imagination; she didn't care. She enjoyed his company nonetheless.
although I know that he is blind
Still I say there's a way for us
He couldn't see what had been right under his nose for over a year, but she felt that there could be a chance that he'd see.
But when the night is over
He is gone
The river's just a river
She had given him her whole heart; he didn't notice the blood on her chest or the organ in her hands. The sun slowly began to rise. it was Sunday; people up early were beginning to come out here. She was no longer with him. The world lost its magic when the night died.
him, the world around me changes
The trees are bare and everywhere the streets are full of strangers
If she recognized any of the people she didn't notice. They were all strangers to her; she was completely detached from them.
But every day I'm learning
All my life I've only been pretending
She was only detached from them because they lived in the world of reality. For over a year she had been lost in the fantasy of her and Harry. But that kiss had pulled her sharply back down to Earth. It would never happen.
Without me, his world will go on turning
The world is full of happiness that I have never known
If she didn't even exist anymore he wouldn't even care. He had his black-haired beauty to keep him distracted.
I love him
She adored him; he only saw her as a friend. Or his best friend's little sister.
I love him
He was her heaven and Earth; she was barely his acquantince.
But only on my own...
Poor Ginny... That was very sad. Angst. Totally. I was going to put that she hated Cho now, but that would have killed the mood. Review, and tell me if you like!
