I paired off
Neville and Snape.

Malfoy and Harry
had sex
in Filch's closet.

Seamus and Dean
made out
in the Gryffindor common room.

Remus and Sirus
are now
a couple.

Pavarti and Lavender
exchange secretive looks.

Fred and George
practice twincest.

I'm sorry,
Ms. Rowling,
for making all your characters
gay.
Though you must admit
it would've made the story
much better.

I'm a girl. I'm a boy. My names Alyssa Hey, I'm Kurt. I love shopping. Skating is my life. I wear pink flip-flops I wear blue DCs I wear skirts and tank-tops I wear jeans and a blue tee. I'm shy. I'm loud. I'm scared. I'm brave. I have a boyfriend. I want a girlfriend. I am loved. I am hated. I wanna be……….. I am…………. Kurt.

Unhiding Love
 Harry Potter stood outside the Great Hall about to do the biggest thing of his life, even bigger than his defeat of Voldemort. The Hero was going to confess his feelings about a certain blond, effectively claiming him, to all those who were eating their meals. Harry leaned against the wall of the hallway, just outside the massive doors of the Great Hall. He tried to gather all his courage. The gryffindor knew he had a lot to lose if he went through with his little plan. His mind flitted to the event that lead to this... ~~The Beginning~~ "Damn it Draco come back!" Draco turned towards Harry, absolutely livid, "No damn you Potter! Damn you

Lost and Found
Lost and Found Here I am walking around aimlessly Scars surround every part of my body Lies are all that I seem to know Tears no longer come out Just the supreme silence I walk for what seems to be forever I lose the strength that I have to stand I was done, I was done with trying I wanted to sit and rot But there you were The flickering light in my hurt eyes You came for me...came running At this close to dead corpse You whispered thoughts of hope- often true thoughts It was never merely flattery, and overreacted words Nor was it fake for secret intentions It was honest, kind, true You are the only one that makes me feel

This is a poem called "This is Just to Say". This type of poem was popularized by William Carlos Williams. They are a way of saying "sorry" without meaning it. The original poem was used as a prompt in my writing class. I'm going post a few more "This is Just to Say"s. Try them for yourself. It is a fun way to write.

This one is written from the perspective of a slash writer. It's not me because I don't often write slash.

(These are not my characters. They belong to Ms. Rowling. So there.)

Dumbledore is gay, and I think (sadly) that's as close as we get in Canon.

If memory serves, I wrote this before Dumbledore's sexuality was announced. And we all rejoiced because that was the closest we were ever going to get to representation.

Yeah, I think books could use more people in the LGBTQ community being represented. More people are doing it nowadays though, so that's a plus. Just a little while ago I was reading the new Rick Riordan Series about Norse Mythology and they had a genderfluid kid. And in Mortal instruments there's Alec whose gay. Hopefully there's more of people like this in the future! (I'm only 90% sure his name was Alec sorry if I'm wrong.)

We absolutely need more representation. But we're also so much better than when Harry Potter was being published, thank god.

Hopefully, there's still some Harry Potter characters in the closet that we don't know about yet.

never thought of it this way...but ok thanks for ruining my favorite book. i have nothing against gays or lesbians...but i didn't not need to think of Harry Potter like that....geez. i have to say the poem was funny though! :-D

Sometimes, in the absence of good LGBTQ role models in fiction, we create our own. Glad you got a chuckle out of this ancient poem.

Thanks for the approval. I wrote this years ago for a school assignment. Glad to see that people still like it in all its ancientness.

Ha, nice one. I wrote this poem four years ago. If I ever decide to revisit it, I might glean some inspiration from that one.

FFF--Truth. :iconclapplz: The books would've been so much more fun...just saying.
We had to do this for a book I read in Freshman year XD

Many things would be more entertaining with slash, wouldn't they?

You did This is Just to Says as well? Very nice. They were one of my favourite parts of that class.

Indeed.
I did! We had to do it for "A Seperate Peace"
RubyFalls's avatar
Ooo, that's clever. I did it for a creative writing class.

Really? My creative writing classes don't do that, but they should.

RubyFalls's avatar

I seriously love Remus/Sirius! <3

*grins* Glad you liked the poem. I don't do nearly as much with fan fics and slash anymore, but they were always one of my favourite pairings.

Thank you for the sign of approval.
