Author has written 4 stories for Harry Potter.

Because there's nothing in the whole world better than a story.


Tell me a story before it all ends

Something that’s wonderful, something pretend

Give it a moral and maybe a lie

Fill me with laughter, then make me cry.

You know how it starts; “once” and then “time”

And don’t worry much if it doesn’t all rhyme

Throw in some danger, then throw a rope

Lace it with irony, dose it with hope.

But don’t get caught up love, and don’t start to feel

Remember, my darling, that none of it’s real

The dragons and damsels are all in your head

Real life hails no heroes and romance is dead.

--Violet Matter


Because my lovely readers asked for another poem


There will come a day

You'll abandon your shield

By a shredded banner

On a bloody field

When the battle's done

But your friends are lost

Cause the war is won

At a terrible cost

And you'll cast your sword

In the river deep

Let your armor rust

And your body sleep

And the light will shine

But the shadows creep

And they’ll all forget

What you fought to keep

And there’ll be a song

With a broken tune

When the next war comes

A life too soon

They’ll call your name

You’ll claim your shield

And stand upon

That bloodstained field

And tremble knowing

What they’d wrought

And wonder why

You ever thought

That life was something

To be sought

When death was all

You’d ever caught.

--Violet Matter


Hi all!

I have the next chapter ready. It's being edited currently and will be posted in the next few days. I apologize for the wait on this one; I thought it would be finished before I started this job in Nov, but I couldn't get the last scene together before I was pulled back into reality. I have time away from my job right now, so I'm getting started on the next chapter, too, but I don't have an estimated timeline for it yet. I'll do my best! Thanks for hanging in there folks.

All the best,

-V

Lily and the Art of Being Sisyphus by The Carnivorous Muffin reviews
As the unwitting personification of Death, reality exists to Lily through the veil of a backstage curtain, a transient stage show performed by actors who take their roles only too seriously. But as the Girl-Who-Lived, Lily's role to play is the most important of all, and come hell or high water play it she will, regardless of how awful Wizard Lenin seems to think she is at her job.
