STOP! Before you read on I suggest you go listen to: "The bravest man I ever knew" by Ministry of Magic, "Snape Vs. Snape" by Ministry of Magic, and "Lily" by Ministry of magic. I believe they set the mood for the story because they were what I was listening to while writing this fic. Plus they are wonderful songs even if they are a little to up beat for this story.
Disclaimer: I do not own Harry Potter, because if I did Severus would have died in the arms of someone who loved him.
She hovered over her body watching as a stone man crumbled.
Really she shouldn't care, he had called her a mud-blood, it had been years since then. But it still stung, still made her so angry, and she could still feel her wounded pride. She still was angry at him; unfinished business and all that maybe she wanted to punch him. Perhaps that was why she hadn't passed on yet.
Then again she doubted he was the reason. No, it had everything to do with the screaming baby in the crib behind the sobbing ma
His Final BattleA wave of anger washed over Sirius as he watched Bellatrix Lestrange run down the stairs of the Death Chamber. She cackled as she passed Tonks's limp form. Sirius told Harry to take Neville and leave, and ran to meet his cousin.His Final Battle3 years ago in General Fiction More Like This
This was it. This was his chance to finally fight.
"Hello cousin!" he bellowed, grinning widely.
Bellatrix turned, her heavy-lidded eyes widening at the sight of him. It pleased Sirius to see that Azkaban had taken its toll on Bellatrix as well. His cousin, who was once so glamorous and beautiful, was sickly pale with hollow cheeks, long tangled hair, sunken eyes and rotten teeth. There seemed to be an air of madness surrounding her.
"Long time no see," he continued, still grinning. "You look terrible."
Bellatrix's lip curled, and she bellowed, "Stupefy!"
Sirius blocked her spell and barked out a laugh.
"Come now, Bellatrix. You, a big bad Death Eater, are trying to stun me? Is that really what Voldemort has taught you?" he teased.
"SHUT YOUR MOUTH!" Bellatrix

CareCry away the sorrow,Care2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
Cut away the pain,
Hope the tears and blood,
Will help me feel again,
I'm so tired of being empty,
Confused of what to feel,
Wonder if it's just a nightmare,
Slowly turning real,
Can't live each day this tired,
Can't have my sadness eat me whole,
Must hold a smile upon my face,
Must not slip out of role,
Laugh when I should laugh,
At times I'll have to lie,
They may even see me frown,
But they shall never see me cry,
For these tears are mine alone,
And not yours to bare,
Because no matter what they say or do,
No one can really care.

I see you from a distance.
Your red hair is blowing in the wind.
You're discovering your magic
and seeing your powers grow
You watch your sister being afraid of the true you
I see you laughing at me
when we look at our letters from Hogwarts
I'll tell you my secrets
But I will never tell how I feel about you
I hope we'll be in the same House together
I see you in different colours than mine
It feels like we're growing apart, red and gold versus green and silver
You say you'll always be my friend
No matter what will happen
I can count on your lovely smile and friendship
I see how James Potter is liking you
How others seem to care about you, more than they did to me
The horror in your eyes when I call you a Mudblood
It was a mistake I will always regret.
And then we took different directions in our lives.
I see a future for you that isn't save
Risking my own life just to make sure you'll be ok
And you dont even have a clue
I wanna make sure you'll be save and happy

Is never where it seems
Unfolding in the sunlight
A lovesick heart's doomed dreams
He knew that she was special
Long before the day they spoke
And he knew his heart belonged to her
Long before the day it broke
Magic was the thing they shared
Though in all else they would seem
As different as night and day
As eyes of black and green
Their Hogwarts letters beckoned in
New chapters to discover
The Sorting Hat divided them
Yet ever did he love her
The power of the Dark Arts
Quickly drew him in
And she agonized to watch him
As morals turned to sin
His happiness it ended
With a single word
Yelled in pain and anger
That everybody heard
He begged for her forgiveness
But she had no more to give
She saw the truth that he denied
The life he chose to live
He watched her from a distance
A crow watching a dove
He watched her as she chose her side
He watched her fall in love
Years before he'd chosen, too
The side on which he'd fight
For Voldemort he pledged his wand

On Draco's sixteenth birthday, he knows better than to expect a cake, or a party, or a day he'll want to remember for the rest of his life.

And a task to perform.
A grand but lonely home stood silently on the outskirts of Nettleton, Wiltshire. Throughout Britain, all traces of the moon and stars were gone from the night sky, leaving only the bleak darkness to blanket the area, from horizon to horizon.
Draco sat in his room in Malfoy Manor, staring at the wall and thinking about as little as possible. He couldn't bear to remember what he had just experienced. He told his mind to push it back, as he had done many times before, but his technique had begun to fail him. The thought of looking into the Dark Lord's eyes, and seeing the intense hatred that dwelt there, made him sick to his stomach with

Praying that it would take me far
And to my luck I found this guy
On a nearby star in the sky
I'm lucky just to hear his voice
And I'm so happy to be his choice
And in love,I may be
My emotions churn like the untamed sea
You are unaware of the lure
Of your smile, which is so pure
You are my one, my only, and that's no lie
You know I have my secrets, yet you don't pry
I hold your hand with a shaking palm
And almost instantly I am calm
Like spring and fall, sun and moon
You and I are forever in tune
Like a summers breeze
Or flowers and bees
You and I are two birds of a feather
In each others lives forever
I'm always happy when you are there
And in these hard times, that is so rare
Sitting in the moons dull light
On a beautiful star lit night.

Her shoulders moved up and down as she tried to calm the tears that were flowing freely from her eyes onto her face which was pale with fear. She moved her arm slightly and had to bite down on her lip to stop herself from crying out in pain. By the light of the moon she inspected a large blue and purple bruise on the inside of her forearm.Her Heart, His Love4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This

She tried to avoid thinking about what had happened earlier that night. She tried to avoid thinking about him, but she couldn't. She couldn't get the fight out of her head. Her arm gave a painful throb as she thought of how she had hit it against the wall as she stormed away from him in anger and frustration. A noise in the distance brought her back from her thoughts. She whipped around, red hair flying, and hurried down the corridor.

Admirable attempt, Zabini. But I imagine the effort you expended in paraphrasing would have been better spent in actually doing your essay. If you are going to plagiarize, try harder to do less work.
