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!

YAY! Five pages… I thought of this pairing the opening night of the seventh movie, and I was just dying to write them—and now that Scabior was finally added to the character list on FFN, I can post this! XD Whatta scary idea of Greyback getting Fleur, though…although I do wonder why Fleur wasn't called into question—as I wrote above, she is technically a half-breed… Also, the title comes from a Rasmus song.
Thanks for reading, and please review!
2017 note: Ah, yes, the pains of getting a character added to a fandom's list on FFN… B/ Anyway, dark!Bill is always fun to write, but a Scabior who's just so purely for himself that he can be evil one second and good the next is perf. ;3
