Let me preface this entry with a statement of absolute truth:

I don’t write Potterfic.

Ever.

I confess that I do read it much more often than any other fanfiction out there, but despite the fact that Harry/Hermione is, was, and always will be my favourite pairing out of anything and everything I have ever read, watched, or played, I still simply…haven’t written anything for it. It’s just that by and large, I feel like anything I could come up with has already been done, and been done better than I could have ever done it. There’s loads of wonderful HHr fic out there already, so many amazingly talented writers focusing their all on it, so there’s no need for me to turn my own meager skills and feeble imaginings in that direction.

And yet…I still couldn’t resist writing this. So this one time, I made an exception. A nice, even 300 words total, and I’ve no doubt that it’s both my first and my last Harmony fic, but they are still my Always.


[Hermione, Harry. ‘Ghosts In The Graveyard, Hauntings of Christmases Past.’]

--
It’s been hard, living with the knowledge that she’s alone in the world, no parents anymore, at least not for now, not since she’s wiped their memories and sent them off to Australia. Today, on Christmas Eve, this holiday that’s meant to be about home and happy warmth and family, it hits her harder than ever, what she’s done, what she’s lost, possibly for good.

Rather than a house, there’s just the tent. Rather than warmth, there’s the cold snow crunching beneath her feet, and rather than happiness there’s fear and a strained sense of urgency. Rather than her family, there’s just Harry.

But it’s what she chose--he is what she chose--and hard as it is, Hermione doesn’t regret it. She could never be sorry for choosing to be by his side. Especially now, as she holds his hand and he clutches hers back almost hard enough to make it ache as she watches him, Harry Potter, let loose and simply cry. He abandons all pretense at strength and poise; he trusts her enough to lay himself and all his emotions open before her eyes without any fear of judgment or mockery, though at the moment, she knows Harry could care less who sees him sobbing before that cold grey stone like a lost child.

She feels an empathetic twinge in her own chest, a shallow echo of that feeling of loss, but deep as her own sorrow is, Hermione knows that Harry’s is infinitely deeper. That doesn’t make her pain any less real, but even so, the mingling of logic and compassion give her perspective, and she steps closer so that their shoulders brush and their shadows melt together, squeezing Harry’s hand tighter still.

It’s her first Christmas without her parents.

It’s Harry’s first Christmas with his.

SO I went to see Harry Potter tonight (I wouldn’t’ve paid to see it, but my dad offered to take me, so heck yeah, free movie FTW). And. Well, I actually disliked the book, but they took out so much stuff and added so much new stuff, that almost didn’t matter. I spent SO much of the movie going ‘What the heck, THAT wasn’t in the book’, but then again, it has been a while since I read it, though I’m generally good with remembering book-related details, so.

ANYWAY, what I thought about it all can be pretty well summed up with some icons (none of which were made by me, sadly):

That last one, OHHHH YEAH, I'm pimpin'! EVERYONE LOVES ME! Even Snape! Who thinks I'm BEAUTIMOUS and wishes he were younger!

I am far too easily amused. And these Quizilla quizzes take me back to my high school days...man, that seems like so long ago.

So who else has seen all the stuff about the 495-or-so-pages of the "photocopied" book?


BWAHAHA, it isn't even the 21st AND ALREADY THERE IS HP:DH WANKAGE. It makes my soul sing~


ALL THE HOMGSPOILERSARETHEYREALWHODIESISSNAPEREALLYEVILISHARRYAHORCRUXAHAHAHAOMGOMGOMGGGGGG MAKES ME A VERY VERY HAPPY GEEKGIRL. :DDD


...Oh, just...just, it's too marvelous. Either the spoilers are fake, or JKR musta been crunked while she was writing it, 'cause I've seen a helluva lotta fanfic that's better than that...and not all that much that's worse. And considering the fact that I used to be a gleefully unrepentant MiST-er, that's saying something. Hell, if it's really this bad, I might just have to MiST that whole freaking book.

Actually, I honestly hope the spoilers are true, and that the book really *is* as terrible as the bits of it I've seen show...because it makes me so very happy that my ship is not canon. XD


...And the Internets were rent asunder, and yea, the very Earth didst tremble in anticipation of Potterdämmerung...
