A HariPo freeverse piece

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!

Look upon this horrific sight,

you

F O O L S

You two

with your tails between you legs

with your fear pressing you into the shadows

with your g u i l t constricting your lungs to the point where

it's

painful

to

BREATHE

Hmph

You l u c k e d out

So you survived

What now?

You can't show your faces around here

(a badger-turned-snake & a snake-turned-CHICKEN)

Well, you're now stuck with each other

Don't bother finding such flimsy things as

happiness (pah!) &

l o v e (what an accursed thing)

Just work on this forced friendship

(because no one else will have either of you so might as well pool your findings for one flat)

& just ignore the T U G of trust (oh, is that what you're calling this feeling?)

you feel for him, your…ah, "roommate"

Ooh, implied slash. How nummy. ;3 Theo/Zach may have potential…

Thanks for reading and please review!
