Release That Tension

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! Btw: I'm gonna alternate povs here, so bear with me. It'll be fun. ;) Also, there's quite a bit of language here, and some heavy suggestions…turn away now (though there's nothing graphic) if you feel the need.

·Michael·

You.

Little.

P R I C K !

Do you think this is

easy

for the rest of us?

Fun?

Think again, twat

We aren't just

makingsacrifices

We

ARE

the sacrifices

& that's why you're

cupping yourself

Doubt

Fear

go hand-in-hand

So either

get a grip

—Or—

prepare for one of us to take your memories of this

"down time"

Because fools like you obviously don't need to learn defense

%%%%%%%%%%

·Zach·

Do you think I

ENJOY

postulating the way

I do?

I have lived this way

for as long as I can

r e m e m b e r

It's called

pessimism,

you wanker

I only see the

dastardlydoomeddreaded

outcomes

& I

w o r r y

My fears & fright

eat me

from the

inside-out

So why don't

you

try living with that on your conscience?

Hmm?

Instead of pinning me to a wall,

threatening me with your wand in my face

%%%%%%%%%%

·Michael·

See this?

Hear this

s i l e n c e?

We're the only ones in the Room

because everyone is being

careful

in trying to get here

So—

have you learn your LESSON?

You can't have missed the

s c a r s

on Harry's hand

That's one thing that awaits us

if we can't properly fight

Come

here

Give me your hand

I'll gladly CARVE some

"words of wisdom"

into your writing hand

Your hair may be s o f t,

your eyes like that of a g i r l ' s,

but no one can look past

real mutilation

So why don't we give it a go?

%%%%%%%%%%

·Zach·

Bastard.

If anyone looks like a girl, it's

you

But you know as well as I do

that doesn't

m a t t e r

& carve me, like a roast beast?

Go.

Right.

AHEAD.

Would you prefer to marr my face instead?

Or my chest, over where my

heart

is supposed to e x i s t?

I'll stand my ground

get in your face

Because you won't

change me

It'll never happen

the most you can hope for is

(possibly)

some form of

emotional mutilation

(& I'm the pansy)

%%%%%%%%%%

·Michael·

Fine

That's easy enough

We're

b o t h

too emotionally invested at this point

Better yet,

let the Room shift

as I'll scar us

for the

rest

of our lives

Hah!

The one time you aren't

scared

S H I T L E S S

Are you more

t r u s t-ing

than you led us all to believe?

Or is this just that

"beast"

inside you,

who is sensitive to the slightest touch?

I will carve some select words into your skin

with my fingertips

%%%%%%%%%%

·Zach·

That's…

what you call a

scar?

Hmph

I find…I'm

not

ashamed at all

You've come to learn me

W E L L

(better than the rest)

But guess what?

I now know you

t/o/o

& I've learned something of

great value

You are all

.::big talk::.

.::smart sneers::.

.::&humanity&::.

(you're just like me—& too s c a r e d to show it)

You're a

w o r r i e r

But don't dwell on it (&& don't glower at me—this was your idea!)

As long as we have this Room & an understanding of our MORTAL selves,

I'll rake my nails across your back if you rake y o u r s across mine

%%%%%%%%%%

8DDDD! KYAAA! Sooo hot, no? And I didn't even have to say much! Heehee, the title explains it all! XD But yah. Michael/Zacharias has to now be one of the best slash pairings…yum! (Can ya tell I'm a little at a loss for words?)

Thanks for reading and please review!
