See, Rowling largely operates Harry’s generation in a clear system of parallels to the previous generation, Marauders and all. Harry is his father—Quidditch star, a little pig-headed sometimes, an excellent leader. Ron is Sirius Black—snarky and fun, loyal to a fault, mired in self-doubts. Hermione is Remus Lupin—book smart and meticulous, always level-headed, unfailingly perceptive. Ginny is Lily Evans—a firecracker, clever and kind, unwilling to take excuses. Draco Malfoy is Severus Snape—a natural foil to Harry, pretentious, possessed of the frailest ego and also deeper sense of right and wrong when it counts. And guess what? Neville Longbottom is Peter Pettigrew.

Neville is a perfect example of how one single ingredient in the recipe can either ruin your casserole (or stew, or treacle tart, whatever you like), or utterly perfect your whole dish. Neville is the tide-turner, the shiny hinge. And all because he happens to be in the same position as Wormtail… but makes all the hard choices that Pettigrew refused the first time around. Other characters are in similar positions, but none of them go so far as Neville. None of them prove that the shaping of destiny is all on the individual the way he does.

When a star burns.

It starts with a bang
and all you see
is light.
But when a star
burns
and dies
you don’t know
it’s dead
until long after.
I guess we were a star
we started
out of darkness
and burned
bright
we were
blinded
and it wasn’t until
the light started
to die
that we saw
that the fire
had been
long gone.

The day I met you
my heart was another’s
and yet
my breath was taken.
I never understood
why that was
how the sight of you
could change me.
my heart could beat
but I could not breathe.

The first time we spoke
my pages shivered
my story
let loose.
I didn’t know
that we had been writing
on the same page.

Once our souls
touched
I understood
that the jagged pieces
that jutted from my heart
have always been
reaching out
for yours.


-Lisa

I was in love
That was all I knew
The fingertips that held me
And the breath that mingled.
I was in love
And all I could do
Was watch
Every single move.
My eyes stayed open
My fingers stayed still
And I stopped writing
Stopped doing,
stopped living.

And then
I met you.
