LbN: Written for Mew & Mor's Weird Pairings Challenge. Prompt was Gabrielle/Susan.

She is

Nothing

Like

You

But I guess that's part of the appeal

Isn't it?

I'm not just a shadow to her spotlight.

I'm not a footnote

To her masterpiece.

Mother blames you

For leaving me

For making me go to her.

Don't worry

It wasn't

You.

You are not being replaced

Because she

Is nothing

Like

You.

Comfort always came with

A price.

Peace, Happiness

Everything really

Was paid for.

I paid dearly

For being your sister.

And You

Are nothing

Like

Her.

And I guess that's what makes us tick

Isn't it?

There is no struggle.

You see me clearly

Without me screaming

To be seen.

You show me

That it is fine

To need things. To need people.

You are

Nothing

Like

Her.

I don't fit with them

And you know it.

They all blame you

For taking me.

Stealing

She has the nerve to call it.

She didn't want me

Until you did.

But it's too late

For all that.

You are nothing like Her.

And neither am I.
