Black Curtain Call

A HariPo freeverse piece

by mew-tsubaki

Note: The Harry Potter characters belong to J.K. Rowling, not me. This pairing was discovered by my buddy, Morghen, so please give her a little mention if you write them! Thanks! It is one of many of Mew and Mor's Weird Pairings, most of which you may find in my forum topic in the HPFC, found here (Just take out the spaces!): http : / forum. fanfiction. net/ topic /44309 /25299326 /1/ Read, review, and enjoy! And check out and join the forum challenge! Another at the request of Morghen.

It was…a one-time only thing

A flash

A fleeting glimpse

& somehow, it all made sense

Cissy

Meda

&& Bella

They all came from somewhere,

didn't they?

He isn't withered

He isn't worn

He…

He looks like the haughty Black he is

He carries himself well

Too well

You feel like…

a little

It's to be expected

Many of the pureblood families with Dark affiliations

are great at hiding them

So with a grunt he replies in kind,

"I assure you my visit to Romania is a placid one"

Yeah, right

The only Black ever to speak some truth was Andromeda,

but she's a Tonks now & the mother of your best mate

Okay, so Sirius wasn't a bad guy either

But you know they were flukes

Cygnus is the father of pure

Curse yourself

(no, not in that way)

This isn't admiration anymore

It's

o b s e s s i o n

You want his composure

his life

his will

him

Because maybe, if you're at his side

Some of his sleek & easy-coming good fortune

will rub off on you

Ooh, brilliant… :O Slash can be fun, but it's more fun when the two characters kinda appear out of nowhere and meet. Although, I doubt this pairing will ever be as popular as Morghen's Charlitrix. ;D But I can try to make it so!

Thanks for reading and please review!
