Piecing It Together

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!

"Picking up the conversations

deep in your imagination

tune into the lonely voices

talking of their only choices"

Depeche Mode, "Freestate"

/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\

Before it all

(Harry)

(Cedric)

(all the doom-and-gloom)

There was…

a m o m e n t

It wasn't on the Quidditch pitch

nor in a class

(or even in Hogsmeade)

In the halls

lies a captive magic

of its

o w n

And she didn't figure it out right away

/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\

Originally,

she bumped into him

b o o k s mixed&tumbled

They hastened to gather their things

on the way to class

Marietta couldn't be bothered to help

(she's always good for a grumble)

Dean had his arms full

(poor kid was trying to keep his art supplies balanced on his sketchbook)

But Cho

&& Seamus

didn't give the meeting another look

until l a t e r

when it was

too l a t e

/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\

As Harry fell for her

& she desired

Cedric

Seamus watched on the sidelines

(interested & not)

Cho played with hearts

(not really knowing what to do)

&…

C R A S H

Things all fell

a p ar t

/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\

There were too many

jumbled

emotions

Cho was hurt

(again&again)

Seamus laughed halfheartedly

(at other things—he couldn't be near her)

But they saw what was going on

The world wasn't built for them

(they'd have to build one up on their own)

So…

With Cho hurt

&& Seamus never o u t s t a n d i n g

A realization happened

They could build a world of their own

/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\

Ditching the useless others

(Marietta included, Dean not)

o n e had the thought

to come together

& create a place

for their o w n

(because really, it shouldn't be shared)

& they relied on each other,

the two thought least-likely

to do much,

and…

V o i l a

There wasn't a need for their classmates' drama

Why have drama,

When you can have the

c o m p a n i o n s h i p

you so desire?

/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\

And that is how you write Chomus. B) Seamus/Cho is more of a funny pairing, but I like to look deeper into their characters. They really are…well, kinda the underdogs. But this is cool! XD So please review! And give a mention if you use them~!

Thanks for reading!
