A/N: Unfortunately, I've hit a brick wall again with Albus Potter and the Sword of Godric Gryffindor, so until my writer's block disappears and I can get back to writing again, I'll fill the gap with this little ficlet of oneshots. Inspired by the amazing musical Wicked which I love SO SO MUCH, here's a collection of Slytherin-centric oneshots which surround the War and the Final Battle. Hope you enjoy them!

Title: Divided

Characters/Pairings: Draco Malfoy

Lyrics: Defying Gravity by Idina Menzel and Kristen Chenoweth

Setting: May 2nd, 1998

Summary: As it spreads that Voldemort is on his way to Hogwarts, it's crunch time for the Slytherins.

1. Divided

"You can still be with the wizard, what you've worked and waited for"

For months now, the Slytherins had been divided over their allegiance.

There were the faithful ones, the ones proud to serve the filthy Carrows and use the Cruciatus Curse on the students. There were the ones who wanted to see the Dark Lord win the war and have the natural order of Pureblood supremacy restored.

Then there were the other ones. The ones the first group called cowards for not taking on their rightful responsibilities to serve the Cause. The ones too weak to bring themselves to hurt another student, even if they were Gryffindors – or worse, Hufflepuffs.

The third group were stuck in the middle, torn between two sides, unable to make up their minds either way out of fear, or cowardice, or stubbornness, or whatever.

"You can have all you've ever wanted"

But it was time to decide. The time for acting like a perverse yo-yo in a game of piggy in the middle was over. Harry Potter was in the castle and the Dark Lord was on his way for him.

"You can have all you've ever wanted"

But what exactly did he, Draco Malfoy, want anymore?

One thing he did know was that it wasn't this.
