Draco's Girl, Ally Jolene SummerhazeDraco's Girl, Ally Jolene Summerhaze2 years ago in Profiles More Like This
Here's another visual representation of how I pictured my self-based, original character Allyssa "Ally," Summerhaze to look. This would be more how she'd look as a sixth or seventh year, with longer, darker hair.
I think Draco and Ally are perfect for each other, because they're so different, yet have so much in common. He's a Slytherin. She's a Gryffindor. He gets annoyed with people easily, she's very personable, and sees the good in everyone. He's the Slytherin Prince and she's the Gryffindor Sweetheart. His friends, especially Pansy, despise her, except for maybe Blaise. Harry, Ron, and Hermione, as well as All of her friends can't stand him. They're the Romeo and Juliet of Hogwarts!
However, the similarities are certainly there too! Neither of them get along with their fathers, they're both purebloods, they're both really close with their mothers. He feels the pressure to be the perfect, elitest Slytherin. She feels like her parents don't accept that she's a wizard, having grown u

I can hear the music,
playing in my head...
That brick wall melody,
that leaves me dry and bled.
Back out, unsound, way past
The naive embrace,
clutched like the withering vine,
so doubted in commonplace.
That sorrowful harmony,
with mysterious limbs
running like mad
through my mind, so dim with fog.
In my wake do I hear that music
of the morbid and downtrodden sound...
Sweet, the symphony of my imagination...
the chaos, although so profound.
Stained, my face with the misery
Of this occupation of thought,
not much, yet the burdens are stiff
within the acidic net, am I forever caught.
Seeking FreedomSeeking Freedom2 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
There is a feeling in your chest,
It aches and aches and aches
It spread like fire through your body,
Consuming all you have.
You can't get rid of it,
No matter how much you even try.
Tears remain unshed tonight
You are far to 'strong' to cry.
But you try to find another way
To get your feelings out
Is it a cry for attention?
You really don't know or care.
Maybe you will sing your heart out
Or maybe you will become silent
Maybe you will sleep your life away
Or take comfort from a blade
You don't know how you got the feeling
Or why you feel so down.
You wish you could just figure it all out
And find some way to be happy again
But nothing you do makes you happy
And no matter how you try you can't seem to figure it out.
You still have no clue what the hell is going on
All you know is it seems like it will never end.
You continue to take comfort in things you never knew you could before,
You close up completely to anyone
You wear a mask to hide the true you
You are far too afraid of what p

With a sigh the girl looked at her reflection. "Well hair, thank you for doing nothing productive." She straightened her dress then turned. She pulled anxiously at the ends of her hair. But as she started to walk towards the door she turned, looking back at her reflection and her straight dirty blonde hair. With an angry look at her lifeless locks she turned this time finishing the distance to the door.
"There you are, dear. Everyone is looking for you." The young lady smiled a mild smile, and muttered an apology about being late. "Oh it is no problem dearie; with how beautiful you look anyone would wait for you." The young lady smiled this time feeling a slight heat race up her cheeks.
"Thank you, Mistress Merryweather." Together they made their way quietly towards the great hall. "Merryweather, do you think that . . . will I ever do anything adventurous like my parents?" she hurried on before the fairy could say anything. "I mean not that I am looking for trouble, but I do

There was no reply. The children sat on the side of a path filled with flowers from another time, trees here and there. Many insects lazed around in the heat, even creatures of labour seemed to find the heat far too exhausting for them.
Zelda sighed and lay down in the grass, feeling the blades prickle her arms, touch her ankles. It felt cold and lessened the pain from the burns she had gotten from the week before.
Link sat up and looked at her, she was his best friend and always had been.
They were only 8, still young, still free. No romantic tension had been created between them, it had all been fun and games right from when they first met.
"Zelda?" He repeated,
"Link?" She replied with a chuckle, it was funny to see him so impatient, it wasn't like him at all,
"Zelda, what if in 10 years time we fell out and maybe we weren't friends?"
"Don't be silly," She said sitting up, startled, "we will, I p

cloudless is the night.
The stars are shining;
spend me their light.
Can't see the moon...
Is still sleeping.
A circuit; ongoing.
I am waiting...
until you arised;
for a single night...
you shine so bright.
And then again...
thou goest alone.
One last sight...
and you're gone.
Only the stars are still here.
Shining as they ever do,
around you; always near...
and just missing you.
It's always the same;
a neverending game.
You come and go...
Like death and rebirth.

No one said it was going to be easy. No matter how hard I tried, how much conditioning and reprogramming they do, it's not going to help make me forget. It's already a part of me, embedded in my system, a link, a part of me that cannot be severed like its one of my limbs. He is that important to me. I'm simply stubborn to hold on to him as hard and as much I could.
"...I'm glad that you are okay, that's all that matters, you're alright...."
How can he say that? How can think of me instead of his situation when he was the one who was severely wounded? These words still haunts me, a sure proof that my spirit isn't completely exhausted.
My thoughts are racing, yet I can't function right and know what to do to escape from a past that they been trying to make me forget.

Allyssa Summerhaze peered out at the now empty courtyard, from behind the mahogony wood of one of the corridor entrance doors. The paperballs had all been magically vanished, after Professor McGonnagall had arrived on the scene, broken up the fight, sending the Slytherins running like mad before she was granted the chance to throw them all into a well deserved week's detention. "No matter," she'd said cleverly, watching the Slytherin Offenders take off with their shrieking laughter heard all the way across the square. "My Slytherin Students may just find themselves with quite the addition to their latest Transfiguration assignment."
Ally smiled to herself as she looked down at the paperball crumpled up in her hand. Back at Gryffindor Tower they had all laughed off Draco's latest attempt, Ron calling it lame even by Malfoy's standards. Hermione and Harry mused though how odd it was that Harry, himself, did not seem the usual main target of Draco Malfoy's scheme, but rather..... the dist

Draco Malfoy pulled out a chair for Ally Summerhaze just as he'd always done. Ever the gentleman, she thought sarcastically crossing her arms as she sat down at the mahagony table with scrolled legs. She didn't want to think right now, she didn't want to feel. For if she did either, she would surely pass out from the pricking pain of it all. Draco was about to torture her for information, she knew that. When Voldemort wanted him to do it, he fought against it, risking his life for her. Yet, when Umbridge wanted it from him, all she had to do was ask........" Chills raced down her spine, and they weren't the usual one's Draco's company had often afforded. She didn't want to look at him, didn't want to feel his presence in the least so she studied the stone floor, pretending she was alone. For that was exactly how she felt.
"Well!" Umbridge smiled looking about the sparsely furnished room, now flooded with sunset light from the tall, floor to ceiling paned glass windows. "I think this sh

Sixth Day, Buckingham Palace, At Evening Time
Jack Frost POV
Me and Jamie were walking around the majestic Buckingham Palace. I'm really fascinated with the world in this age of modernity. Although I should have died at least 320 years ago, but I seemed to be still alive and able to experience all the changes. My life more meaningful with the presence of a very cute boy at my side. I liked do not want to leave this modern world.
Today is our last day in England. Throughout our staying, we visited various places of interest such as Oxford University, Stamford Bridge, and Stonehenge. We also managed to visit Baker Street, which claimed the homes of the famous investigator named Sherlock Holmes. Now, we decided to visit the last place in England that was Buckingham Palace.
Almost daily, I often looked at Jamie. To me, he was so cute. I never see this as cute-boy throughout in my whole life, cause I had crush on him. When I saw his smile, my heart melted easily.
Goodnight to the Night SkyI kissed the moon goodnight,Goodnight to the Night Sky4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
But he was so shy
He fell out of sight.
I then reached for all of the stars.
I kissed them each one by one
Until there were none
But only one left.
He seem lonely and out of place,
Left up in the sky...
In all of that empty space.
A tear came to his eye
As he began to cry,
Up there all alone.
When a droplet fell to the ground
It made but the smallest of sounds.
Seeing him sad and with no friends,
I knew I had to put the stars back in their rightful place.
I reached to the lone star
And tickled him until a smile graced his face.
I kissed him,
Last of all.
And with that,
Each star flew up into the sky,
Happy to be home and reunited with their friend.

Draco Malfoy strode through the heavy double doors that suddenly appeared on the long expanse of stone wall in front of him, the Jasper wood glistening in the greenish grey haze. He grinned, feeling very much like a king right now! His fellow Slytherins followed after him, with much less gusto than their leader however, dragging their feet and mumbling discontentedly among themselves. "I thought you said we were going to "have some FUN with the Gryffindorks," Draco!" Pansy Parkingson said with a good eye roll, as she pushed her way passed him. "I would hardly call, whatever THAT was, fun! You can do, and have done much better than THIS! I don't know why you're grinning like you just destroyed Nutter Potter at Quidditch!!!" There was some groans and muttering in agreement. "Oh come off it, Pans!!" Draco shot back with a scowl, not at all liking this protest against his leadership. "That WAS fun....."
A smirk of a different kind now warmed his lips, and he flexed his pale hand, still fee

“You get away with everything because that templar, Cullen is in love with you.” an exasperated voice taunted her.
Ciara Amell feared nothing except the false freedom waiting outside the walls of the Circle of Magi so this apprentice meant nothing to her. She stomped over to where he stood getting in his face because the way Cullen felt about her had nothing to do with her success. He thought to question her accomplishments. This apprentice was a lazy screw up. “You think they won’t see that coming. They expect us to rebel and turn apostate. If we work within the power set up

With big effort I managed to suppress a loud yawn. Since my rude awakening I was listening to the filthy democracy speeches between Luna and some senators. As usual I was wearing the Royal Canterlot Armor, which represented my status and confirmed that I was on Royal Duty together with the Princess. Even though it was a wonderful piece of craftsmanship, I deeply despite to wear it. But because of the fact that I was representing Equestria I had to do it.
The armor would not find any kind of use in open combat, because its true purpose was only to look good, at least it was my opinion. The entire remarkable item reminded me of a saddle but instead of comfortable cloth or leather, the wearer received rather heavy plates. The biggest issue, that was deeply bothering me, was the incapability of scratching the places that started to itch under the armor. And don't even make me start to complain about the sounds while I move
