-1Shimmering Memories

((A/N: Hey! It me again and I've been thinking on what I could do with my two stories 'Eyes of a unwanted girl' and ' Discovery of one's self' and I know I said that I didn't plan on doing another sequel, but guess what? I am, so sit back and enjoy))

((A/N: As I said in the bonus chapter of Discovery, Harry and Draco are married now. Somehow, I forgot to explain why Albus was back in his position as headmaster, but this story will, I am severely hoping, not take place around Hogwarts, so it doesn't matter))

Ok! Yes, there will be songs! Always have been, always been, only this time, I will be putting them at the end of the chapters, saves my sanity in many ways.

DISCLAIMER: I do not own Harry Potter or any names associated with it and I do not own the SevenWaters trilogy or any name associated with it, BUT I do own any character I come up with, including the names and the environments.

This is normal talk

This is thought

This is wolf

This is raven

This is a vision

Chapter 1: Intros

" Geez, could you be any more obvious, Kyle?"

" Sorry, but you know I don't like heights."

" Quiet! Here they come"

The too small figures in the tree froze when three people walked underneath it and stopped.

" I see way too much of Anne in her. She even got her hiding skills." Jamie said, smirking.

" And now she's wrangled Kyle into hiding and disappearing at will." Harry added.

" Well, what can you expect? Kyle has been around her since he was born. At least this isn't as bad as when she taught him the chocolate cake trick." Draco put in, pinching the bridge of his nose.

The girl figure had a hard time holding in her laugh at the mention of that certain incident. Kyle grinned and looked at his cousin, winking.

'No way.' She mouthed. 'He nearly killed me last time.'

Finally, the trio moved on and the figures dropped.

" Oh my god, I thought they would never move on. I'm gonna get in so much trouble because of you." Kyle whispered.

" No your not. They love that I'm like mum and now that I have a partner in crime, it should be even more fun." She replied, walking off.

" Hey wait!" Kyle said, scrambling up.

She didn't stop, only walked further on, towards the clearing.

" Lyra!"

She stopped when she reached the edge, waiting for her cousin.

If one looked at this girl, you could see the perfect blend of her parents. With her father's nose and ears while she bore her mother's hair, the wild red streaks popping out in the shade in contrast to her dark onyx hair. Her eyes were even stranger. They were not her mother's auburn/ebony nor her father's blue. Instead they were both. On the outside rings, bright blue blended into the auburn/ebony of the inner ring. Truly, you could see Anne and Conor in eleven year old Lyra Rache.

" Lyra, why are we here?" Kyle asked, looking around.

" Do you know what day it is?" Lyra whispered.

" Not a clue. Wednesday?" He responded.

" Very funny. No, its November 7; mum's birthday."

" Oh, wow."

" Kyle, can you go back to the village? I want some alone time." Lyra asked, looking over into his silver eyes.

"Sure, I'll tell the parental units that your ok." Kyle responded, kissing her cheek before running off.

Lyra drew a deep breath and walked quickly to the graves, sitting close to her parents.

" Hi, it's me again. Not a lot has changed, Kyle still thinks Uncle Draco will kill him if he sees chocolate cake again. They're expecting again, a little girl I'm hoping." Lyra whispered to her mother. " It's still hard, I wish you were here, you'd be so proud. I can fully master both Air and Fire, like you. Aunt Maggie says that I'm as good as you were. I wanted to say happy birthday, like every year. I miss you, even if I never truly knew you." She added.

" Hold your head up high
You're never wrong
Somewhere in the right you belong
You would rather fight than walk away
What a lonely way to breathe the air
What an unlovely way to say you care
Now we're too far gone for me to save
And I never thought that we'd come to this

maybe there's beauty in goodbye
(no one's wrong or right, you would rather fight rather walk away)
There just no reason left to try
(now is gone too far, look at where we are)
You push me away
Another black day
lost count of the reasons to cry
Look what you've missed, living like this
Nobody wins

Searching for the truth in your eyes
Found myself so lost don't recognize
The person now that you, you claim to be
Don't know when to stop, or where to start
You're just so caught up in who you are
Now you're far too high for me to see
I'd never thought that we'd come to this

maybe there's beauty in goodbye
(no one's wrong or right, you would rather fight than walk away)
There just no reason left to try
(now it's gone too far, look at where we are)
You push me away
Another black day
lost count of the reasons to cry
Look what you've missed, living like this
Nobody wins

You never say your sorry
Try to tell me that you love me
But don't, (dont)it's too late to take it there

Baby that beauty in goodbye
(no one's wrong or right, you would rather fight than walk away)
There just no reason left to try
(now it's gone too far, look at where we are)
You push me away
Another black day
Lost count of the reasons to cry
Look what you've missed, living like this
Nobody wins

(Now it's gone to far, look at where we are)

Nobody wins"

Anne's grave was glowing slightly as the tears burned Lyra's cheeks.

" She always did enjoy music." A voice said behind her.

She turned to see the figure of her uncle standing over her, his own tears shining in his eyes.

" Uncle Finbar, what are you doing here?" She whispered, standing.

" Same as you. Your not the only one that misses her." The Vampiric Elf leader whispered, hugging her.

" I know I never knew her, but it hurts every time her or dad's birthday passes. They should be here." Lyra responded.

" I know, but time can't be changed. As much as I wish my little sister could be here, she isn't." Finbar uttered in a cracked voice.

Lyra could hear the tears in his voice. She pulled out of his hug, kissed his cheek and left him alone, knowing he would never breakdown in front of her. The emotions pouring off her uncle were suffocating, a reaction she usually associated only with her grandfather Severus.

She walked into the village to find Draco talking with Jamie, Kyle playing with Niamh, Maggie and Jamie's oldest daughter. Not seeing her other uncle, she raced up to the study, finding him there.

Harry was sitting on the couch, a photo album on his lap, tears falling down his face.

" Uncle, what's wrong?" She whispered, moving next to him.

" Nothing, I was just looking at this old album your mum put together. Man, the memories." Harry answered.

Lyra looked and was soon smiling as she went through all the memories.

" Wait, is that Uncle Draco?" She whispered.

" Yes, that was the summer before our third year. He was just fully coming out of his Malfoy ways. He was not someone you would want to know before he came here. But, I fully blame Lucius for that. Man was he a monster, but when your mum sheltered him here, Draco was free to be himself and boy was I glad, I grew so tired of hiding because of Lucius."

" He forced you to hide that you were together?" Lyra asked.

" Not that he wanted too, but you have to keep in mind, Lyra, Lucius was a Death Eater and when Voldemort did rise, I had the worst fear that Lucius would use Dray against me." Harry answered.

Lyra moved closer to him.

" What was he like?"

Harry pulled her into a hug. " Who, love?"

" Voldemort." She replied, looking at him, general curiosity in her eyes.

" The essence of evil. Plain and simple."

Lyra nodded, but was suddenly doubled over on the floor, convolving in pain. Her eyes were shining a deep green as the vision took control

She was bloody and broken on a grand floor. There was a huge group of cloaked figure around her and one in front of her, the hood lowered, revealing a red headed man with blue eyes that held such malice.

" You know, you look a lot like your mother. What a tramp she was." The man said, sneering.

" Shut up! You know nothing of her!" Lyra snarled.

" Oh, but I think I do. I'm the one who killed Conor and in the end killed that bitch Anne. She is the reason Harry turned form where he should have stayed. Then he had to go and fall in love with ferret face, after all he did to us!"

" SHUT UP!" Lyra screamed.

A sharp slap had Lyra flat on the ground.

" You will do well to shut your self up. The more you do, the longer you can live." A woman's voice said.

The figure moved back to the redhead and smirked and she tossed her brown hair back, sneering at the elf.

" Now, where was I?" The redhead said, moving towards Lyra, who suddenly found that she couldn't move.

As the man moved closer, she could swear she could see the evil swirling around him. Her eyes went wide and she cried out in pain as many wands cursed her.

The scream that tore from her throat sent cold shivers rocketing through the village, while all Harry could see is Anne crying over Conor's dead body.

Lyra finally stopped screaming as her voice faded into a dull hoarse sound. She was sobbing into Harry's lap, the song overwhelming her senses.

" She sits in her corner
Singing herself to sleep
Wrapped in all of the promises
That no one seems to keep
She no longer cries to herself
No tears left to wash away
Just diaries of empty pages
Feelings gone astray
But she will sing...

Til everything burns
While everyone screams
Burning their lies
Burning my dreams
All of this hate
And all of this pain
I'll burn it all down
As my anger reigns
Til everything burns
Ooh, oh

Walking through life unnoticed
Knowing that no one cares
Too consumed in their masquerade
No one sees her there
And still she sings...

Til everything burns
While everyone screams
Burning their lies
Burning my dreams
All of this hate
And all of this pain
I'll burn it all down
As my anger reigns

Til everything burns
Everything burns
(Everything burns)
Everything burns
Watching it all fade away
(All fade away)
Everyone screams
Everyone screams
(Watching it all fade away)
Oooh, oh
(While everyone screams)
Burning down lies
Burning my dreams
(All of this hate)
And all of this pain
I'll burn it all down
As my anger reigns
Til everything burns
(Everything burns)
Watching it all fade away
(Oooh, ooh)
(Everything burns)
Watching it all fade away"
