I own nothing, just thought I'd let you know. By the way, a lot for you have been asking
about my story, The Final Battle. I am sorry to say, that I have more or less
given up on it. I got my characters into a bit of trouble and I can't seem to
get them out. I am debating on whether or not to take the story off ff.net.
Besides a lot for my theories have changed. Some will be
revealed in the new revised version of My Name is Sirius Black, though I'm not
sure when this will be finished. My
friend is writing My Name is Remus Lupin and we're working together on these
two, as well as My Name is James Potter, which will ultimately reveal the whole
back story to Sirius, James, and Harry.
I am very sorry, but that's how it turned out. Please
don't worry. I will have many new stories coming out, as long as I can get my
stewpod* cool spelling, huh? * computer
to stop unwrapping the text. Anyone with helpful hints will be worshiped on
bended knee. I'm a bit annoyed, can ya tell?
Thanks so much. I hope you'll like this one. I cried when I finished it, so review and
tell me what you think.
And now… on with the fic!
"Lily! He's here!
Take Harry and go!"
"No! I'm not leaving you, James!"
"Go! You have to save Harry!" She hurries to the
nursery. It's too late to tell
her. I can't tell her why she has to
save Harry. He's here. This is it. The end. My end.
Then the door falls from it's hinges. There he is. He doesn't look evil, you know.
That is until you look into his eyes.
There is something cold there, something not human. He smiles when he sees me, wand at the ready.
I am scared, but I don't show it. I've
faced him before, I can do it again.
But before I can do anything, he raises his wand and points
it at me. It's as if everything is moving slowly. I see him point, see him say the word, but I can't do anything.
And when the spell hits me, my world explodes.
The pain is horrible. Wave after wave descends on me until I
can think of nothing else. I'm sure I must be screaming, but I can't stop. Desperately, I try to make it stop, to block it from my mind. but I can't.
Then it does stop. I go limp. I am too sore, too tired, too
wracked with pain to do anything but breathe.
Tall black boots
trod past me, dark cape whipping
around them. I can hear him go into the
nursery. Lily is there. No! She hasn't
left. She's there, with Harry.
She won't do it, she
won't stand aside. That's my girl, I think.
I struggle to a sitting position and take a breath. I have to get to her. I have to save them.
The I hear those two fateful words, "Avada Kedavra." There
is a flash of green light, the tell take sign of the killing curse. A soft body falls, and that is it. I turn my head. Lily, my Lily is lying
there, on the floor, her arm outstretched to me, her eyes are open and her
mouth is set firm. No! She can't be! Not my Lily, not my wife! Please no! I
can't live without you, Lil. Then I
hear a baby cry.
Harry! It's not us!
He's after Harry! He's after my baby, my son! No!
But before I can do anything, there is another flash of
green light. But this one is different. It is almost like an explosion. I can still hear Harry screaming.
As the light dims, I
hear a shriek, an inhuman shriek of fury and terror. Then everything comes crashing down.
The house has
fallen. Whatever happened, it
caused some sort of explosion. A beam falls and I am trapped. No, I
have to find Lily and Harry. Somehow,
with great difficulty and a lot of pain, I managed to work my way out and over
to where Lily is buried.
Slowly but surly, I dig her out. Holding her close, I cry. Slowly, I close her eyes and rock,
ignoring the stabbing pains in my body.
Fly, fly little wing
Fly beyond imagining
The softest cloud, the whitest dove
Upon the wings of heaven's love
"Lily, oh Lily, come back to me. Don't leave me alone." But my little Lily flower has already begun
her journey. She's flying now, higher
than the houses, and the towns, over
the world, to a better place.
How I want to be with her. She's in a place where there is
no pain, no heartache. Everything is
Past the planets and the stars
Leave this lonely world of ours
Escape the sorrow and the pain
And fly again
Lily, I love you. I love you more than words can say. It won't be long now, I know that. I can feel it. even now, my strength is
slowly fading. I doubt I could stand if I
put all my strength into it.
Your endless journey has begun
Take your gentle happiness
Far too beautiful for this
Lily was so good, so prefect. She was my little flower. She was my wife. Don't worry, Lily. I'll be with you soon.
Don't wait for me, start. You were like an angel, you know. So good, so sweet, so beautiful. I am lucky
to have you. I close my eyes and hold Lily tight, the tears on my face are
Cross over to the other shore
There is peace
But hold this mem'ry bittersweet
Until we meet
"James, I'm sorry. I didn't know. God, please forgive
me." I hear a voice. It can't be. I open my eyes. It is.
"Sirius?" he's kneeing before me. He looks horrible. His
hair is messy and his face pale. He's crying. When he sees me, he drops to his
"James, James. Oh my god.
You're alive." He looks so
relieved. It will hurt him so much when I go.
"Not for long. Sirius, listen to me." I have to make him understand. I have to
"I'm here, James. I'm not leaving." How can I say everything
I need to say? I decide that Harry is
the most important thing. I grab his sleeve. It's all I have strength for. But I don't need to get his attention. He's
entirely focused on me.
"Harry." I tell him.
"It's all up to him. You have to
take Harry, keep him safe. Do that for me, Sirius."
"But you're alive, Prongs.
You can take care of Harry." No,
Sirius. I can't I'm dying, I want to shout. But I
can't. That might just kill him.
"I was a fool, Padfoot. I should have told you, but I
didn't. I was scared. Forgive me." I
should have. I should have told him and the others long ago when I found
out. But he'll never know now. It's just as well.
"If anyone needs forgiveness, it's me. I'm sorry, I didn't
know." As soon as he says I didn't know
I say, "You didn't know."
For a brief second, we're back at Hogwarts, teasing each other. We used to do that all the time,
say the same thing. It used to drive
him crazy. But the pain is fading now. I know what's coming.
"Take Harry, protect him. Please, do that for me, Sirius."
He nods. "I promise, James." The end is coming. I
close my eyes, turning away from my best friend and closing my hand around
"I'm coming, Lily."
The pain is gone now. There sit a flash of bright light, and
Lily's standing there. She takes my
hand and leads me to a house, not
unlike our own. From it, I can see my
friends. From it, I can see Sirius. I have to wonder one thing. How can heaven
be prefect? How can I be happy when I see my best friend being torn apart by
grief? But I can do nothing now, but watch and pray.
Fly fly, do not fear
Don't waste a breath, don't shed a tear
Your heart is pure, your soul is free
Be on your way, don't wait for me
He's gone. He's gone and she's gone. Forever. Flying high through the sky, on their journey to wherever souls go when
If there ever were angels,
my friends are with them now.
Go on, fly away, my
friends. I want you to stay so much,
but I can't. All I can do is sit here and wept in the charred remains of
your cozy home, holding your baby son,
rocking him to sleep.
Above the universe you'll climb
On beyond the hands of time
The moon will rise, the sun will set
But I won't forget
I won't forget my promise, James. I'll keep Harry, I'll love
him and treasure him as if he were my own.
Harry will know his parents, I promise. No matter what happens, I'll
always be there for him.
Years may passed, but I'll never forget.
Fly, fly, little wing
Fly where only angels sing
Sixteen years later:
You know, this isn't so bad. The pain is actually lessening. I open my eyes.
I'm no longer in the midst of battle. I no longer see Remus's body, cold and lifeless, mouth
and eyes open and staring, next to mine. Or Ron and Hermione, fighting side by
side. Or Harry, battling the worst of
them all, Voldemort. I know what is happening now.
I can see the world, I can see everything. Mountains, valleys, forests, deserts, I can see it all. I'm flying. I let James go fly all those years ago and
now, it's my turn.
I'm in a brightly lit room. Something about it seems very
familiar. But this time there is no
strange woman, warning us of the future.
No, I know this woman. She is wearing a long white robe and her waist
length long hair is tied neatly up in a loose bun. Her bright green eyes welcome me.
"Lily…" now I know where I am.
"Yes Padfoot. You're dead." I turn around. James is there,
Remus too. Even Peter. I guess his last
moments, charging his own master and taking
a curse meant for me, saved him. I smile and my old friends embrace me. After
all these years, after everything, I am home.
Fly away, the time is right
Go now, find the light.
