Roped In

A HariPo freeverse piece

by mew-tsubaki

Note: The Harry Potter characters belong to J.K. Rowling, not me. This pairing was discovered by me, so please gimme 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! This is a sequel to the freeverse "Scattering Thoughts," but you don't have to read it first…though I suggest reading it before or after this. Thanks. *Note: The lyrics (bold & italicized) at the beginning and end are from "I Feel You" by Depeche Mode.

I feel you

Your sun it shines

I feel you

Within my mind

You take me there

You take me where

The kingdom comes

You take me to

And lead me through Babylon

##########

I always knew Lavender would be a bigger part of

my life

She was my aunts' and uncles' friend

She was my Divination teacher (occasionally)

& she was a fellow Quidditch goer

It was a premeditated, random

t h o u g h t

I wasn't too ashamed of my mind

(She's the best-preserved of her generation, you see)

& it's not like this would be too horrible a

plan

(She's intelligent & has a backbone—very nice)

But I'd always wondered…

Do male Veelas have any power over women?

(To my delight, I found they do)

##########

I'd never use my blood

before

I doubted it'd really work

Sure

My mother & sisters can wave or something

& they'll get their w a y

But me?

Male Veelas occur once in a

blue moon

Everything pointed to me being a regular wizard

But I was clever, shrewd

(& then the idea happened)

Maybe it was because I saw her

at a Puddlemere United game

Maybe it was because my mates pointed her out to me

M a y b e I was doing a little foreseeing

of my own that day

##########

"Hullo"

"How are you?"

"Stunning as ever"

One of the three did it

It was enough

She started talking

Then she was laughing

& we were cheering the team on

But the game was long

F O R G O T T E N

She was very aware of me

(& I, of her)

The next thing I know, I've

talked her into a cuppa

&& her eyes are almost as mesmerizing as mine

##########

Strange

The more I'm with her,

the less effective my powers are

but she's

still

here

It's all right, though

I'm finding I'm glad I saw

h e r

&& no one else

##########

W E E K S…

##########

Months…

##########

Oh

I see

Apparently, male Veelas have one side-effect…

they end up on the short end of things

My powers no longer work on Lavender

But me…

I love her

It's both a light & heavy statement

But I know it, because my powers ordered it so

I'm a w a r e of her

I c a r e for her

much more than I thought I would (could)

##########

Mother told me today no Veela can work his magic on himself

So I guess this love is just right for us, Lav

##########

I feel you

Each move you make

I feel you

Each breath you take

Where angels sing

And spread their wings

My love's on high

You take me home

To glory's throne

By and by

XD I love the Louis I write in Lavlou… He's so devious, but he still carries that darned innocence about him… Sheesh. I do like Louis a little on the dark, manipulative side. Not the playful one we see with Scorpius, but actually rather dark. I feel it suits him better. Haha, a devil with the face of an angel…oh. I think I have my next Lavlou in mind!

In the meantime…please leave a review! ;) Thank you!
