Growing Pains

A HariPo freeverse piece

Note: The Harry Potter characters belong to J.K. Rowling, not to me. This pairing is a Mew and Mor's Weird Pairing, which you may find in the M&MWP forum (see my profile for details). Check out and join the forum FUN! Read, review, and enjoy!

"Frustrations, sensations, and fascinations"

La Roux, "Fascination"

##########

She never was "Auntie Luna" to you

She was always special in your mind,

in your h-e-a-r-t

Ickk, why'd she have those stupid twins?

Sander's not so bad…

Lorcan's a jerk to you

How could something like him ever come from someone like her?

Someone so

P U R E

##########

Ah, here we go again

You just can't seem to tear your eyes from her

She's here and though everyone's here

All you see is

Blonde hair &&

protuberant blue eyes

They look through you

And you find you hate that…

You're her favorite out of "the cousins"

#########

Being in a group sucks

It b_l_o_w_s

Hard

Because you'll only ever be one of "the cousins"

A "Weasley boy"

Though you're grown up now

& you've had to grow up admiring that

F*a*i*r*y

p~r~i~n~c~e~s~s

from afar

No, not "that" fairy princess…

"Your" fairy princess

##########

Kiss your cheek, kiss your other cheek

Watch her smile as though she knows your

s-e-c-r-e-t

But really she's hurting

Because her life is crashing down on her

Her daydreams aren't as fun anymore

She's hit

R.E.A.L.I.T.Y

& you hear the twins mumble

About her heartbreak

& you see them misty-eyed

Because their dad's gone

An accident

& you hurt

Hurt for them (a little)

Hurt for her (clearly)

Hurt for you

Wait—why?

Oh, because you wished it hadn't happened

A) you never wanted to see her so sad

B) you wish she'd never known him so she could be with

Y O U

##########

Hurt on, little Louis

The Veela blood's thinned

&& even if you could entrance her, you'd only

hurt m_o_r_e

Because she wouldn't truly be yours

So let this go for now

Come back later

Let your fairy princess, your cosmic star

hang in the sky,

to shine by herself

And when you return,

she'll be ready

You can catch her

T.h.e.n

W00t! My longest freeverse yet! :D And I'm ecstatic that it's for Louina, because I REALLY like this cross-gen pairing. 8D Hooray for weird pairings! But I reeeally like this. I really wanna do another for them with this storyline…or I could do a oneshot instead…or both… Hmmm… Btw, the title is also from a song by La Roux.

Thanks for reading, and please review!

-mew-tsubaki ;D

Thanks as always to Morghen for beta'ing! XD

2017 note: Oh, lordy… I wrote a bunch of cross-gen pairings back in 2010, and I remember my excitement over them—like Louina here—but I confess others ended up enthralling me more? Anywho, still a good little poem. :3
