Get What You Want

A HariPo freeverse piece

"Come out, Tigerlily

You're caressing me

I'll take you up

I'll turn you on

I'll take your apathy

I wouldn't lie to you, Blossom

Won't you let it go?

I'm gonna give you all you want"

La Roux, "Tigerlily"


If ever he had a goal in life,

it was to have


When they first met,

it was a want

But time went on

& she became as n.e.c.e.s.s.a.r.y

as the air he breathed

He flirted shamelessly with her

It wasn't too bad from his view


When she sometimes flirted back,

he hurt

hurt b a d

Because it was only ever a

g a m e to her

James gave her flowers again

He asked her out again

He told her "Iloveyou" again

& she toyed with him if she

felt like it

But at some point,

he managed to


the lines

&& it was hard to see if he'd only ever be

that handsome devil


if he could become the gentleman she so desired

Because he might have been able to appreciate

the…"beauty" elsewhere in the world

but Lily was always his one,




&& her light encompassed him

So one day, when those lines were completely abolished

He encased her light in one gem

& presented it to her

And "they lived happily ever after" almost makes sense here

(despite how their fairytale went)


Awww… Sad, but nice. :) Despite how we know their story ends, at least it's fun getting there. James and Lily are great…though I hope people notice. Lily's…kinda a Mary-Sue. James loved her. Snape loved her. People love writing Remus and/or Sirius loving her in secret, too. And she was bright, beautiful, could charm most of the teachers… O.O! Many people liked her… O.O! But even I still appreciate good ol' James/Lily.

Thanks for reading, and please review!
