Flying Out of the Shadow
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!
"The only man who never makes mistakes is the man who never does anything." —Chinese fortune cookie
you saw it happen all the time
when he least needed pity
A poor rich boy
who needed someone other than those
But you didn't step in
You went on as if
he were just a S-H-O-W
&& you could only watch
Did you know?
You were essentially his
He could work off some of that
when flying around
&& he actually appreciated
the discipline you provided
because everything e…l…s…e
in his life was too out-of-control
& most aspects were beyond
There was…one thing
He didn't have any big shoes to fill
But there was that
shadow he so desperately wanted
But it was too late the day Sirius went to school,
for Regulus would always just be his "little brother"
So you should've known
If Sirius is on the side of the Light,
then how do you B_A_L_A_N_C_E this equation?
You guessed it
Regulus could only end up with that crowd
&& you saw & let him spend time with them anyway
when, with a little more training, he… He—
… He would've been a world-renown Seeker
Awww… :( Poor Reggie. Whether with Rosmerta or being admired by Hooch, he really led a sad life. …he's a great case study. XD Anywho… Btw: I really did get that quote from a fortune cookie. Siriusly!
Thanks for reading, and please review!
Thanks as always to Morghen for beta'ing! XD
2017 note: Honestly, my only comment for this old piece is that, if Reg had a fav teacher, Hooch makes a lot of sense to me, since he was a talented Quidditch player. :O
