I love you.
My BrotherIN MY MIND, Flashes,My Brother by ~ayune
Nothing totally whole, still-frames defined,
Mostly in Winter, more fragmented Summer.
All out of order.
Black, utilitarian fingerless gloves and
The Black Leather Duster,
Smoke in hand,
Protects me from the Monsters.
So brave and so strong,
So smart and so kind.
Loved like he Raged,
Completely and Honestly.
Swords, mead and fireworks,
Monk's robe and borrowed boots.
He wore sandals and shorts in the snow, and
Black every day in high school
Because they told him he couldn't-
Katy in the '90s.
He went to classes sometimes.
Star Trek, wanted Amazing Grace
Like Spock had in Wrath of Khan.
(We did the best we could on short notice, Mig)
in the Yellow Bird, Terrible Thunder Chicken,
Firebird as old as me,
Picked me up after school
Driving in the heat.
Metallica's Black Album,
Alanis's Jagged Little Pill.
(He loved her as God in Dogma)

We stood, apart, on a beach at winter-tide.
I hold those memories tight-clenched at my side,
and though I can't, I hold your hand still tightly twined in mine.

The power to hold me has been defined
Within the confines of your mind
Now no one can hold me on the road to you.
And I will not stop 'til I can trace
The well-lov-ed contours of your face,
Until I can race into the stellar blue,
Pink Converse traversed a barren plane,
My only fuel, an echo of my name.
No sweeter drug, no passion tugs me
Stronger than the glimmer of our flame,
I will not stop, I made my choice,
I'm breathing the echoes of your voice,
The air resonates unspoken 'I love you's,
And I will not stop 'til I can say,
"Oh yes, my love, I'm here to st
HP: Last Blood Chapter IIFollowing close behind Snape's irritated exclamation, an Uncomfortable Silence swept in, pulled a book off a shelf, turned on some nice, soothing music, poured itself a tall glass of red wine and generally threatened to make a night of it. Harry tossed glances to Hermione and Ron,(shocked and stunned, repectively) to MacGonagall(somewhat mortified but covering it well) to Snape(resignedly bitter, as usual) and to Sinistra(about to wet herself from repressed laughter.) It was not until after the Uncomfortable Silence started in on its fifth game of solitaire that Harry actually managed to force his mouth to make sounds.HP: Last Blood Chapter II by ~ayune
"Um.." Harry said, lamely looking around for someone knowledgeable. His eyes landed gratefully on his wizened head of house.
MacGonagall looked very much like she had somewhere expremely important to be within the next thirty seconds or so and had completely forgotten. She stared with overwhelming alarm at her pocketwatch in a way that practically screamed,'Oh, look at t
