"From the notes that I've made so far,

Love seems something like wanting a scar,

But I could be wrong,

I'm just not sure you see,

I've never been in love before

The meaning of love

(Tell me)

Tell me the meaning of love

(Tell me)."

Depeche Mode, "The Meaning of Love"


He was older & handsome & kind

& you could've learned sooo

much from him

(if only you'd gotten the chance)

See, you were so


(& the word is like a curse on your tongue)

& if he'd ever looked at you, well…

At most, he would've seen a little sister

("because we Ravenclaws ought to stick together")

Did you…


It was a little bit before he would dance with that

fair-haired, part-Veela witch

You crossed his path

(almost tripped him in doing so)

But you got his


You don't remember what you said—

neither does/would he

yet you got him to chuckle

&& you were sure you'd never heard such a wonderful sound

Better yet,

those glittering dark eyes met yours & suggested


Your lips curved up just a smidge…

and then he had to move on, do something else

Before you could even really wrap your mind around the i_d_e_a

He wasn't t_h_e_r_e


He was attached to the silver arm of her,

(&& you know you were taught to RESPECT your elders, but maybe Dad will let you get away with doing something to her to rid yourself of the ache in your c.h.e.s.t)

But you just watched & began searching for your missing possessions months before the end of the school year

Too bad you never commentated H~I~S games…


Oh, wow… A slightly vengeful Lune in the end—but what girl wouldn't feel that way if she couldn't get the guy she wanted? And if you couldn't tell, yes, this is more like a crush of Luna's, as this was set in Goblet of Fire (meaning the "silver arm" is the dressed up limb of none other than Fleur). I really like Luna with Roger… He own Quidditch boy. :')

Thanks for reading, and please review!

2017 note: OOPS. XD That's all I can say when I reread old fics and notice glaring mistakes (for some reason, I'd said he was with Cho instead of Fleur like? no?). *lol* Ah, well. That's fixed, and I still like a pining Luna. :')
