A/N: Wrote this ages and ages ago and never posted it; rediscovered it last night and thought it was interesting.



You're angry, aren't you, Potter?  I can feel it in you, on you, washing over me like it has every time you've seen me these past seven years.  Acrid and bitter, and terrifyingly old.  Old, cold anger.

You're angry, aren't you, Potter?  Angry at me, angry at the world, at the Dark Lord and Dumbledore and even your poor, dead parents.  And the best part is, I'm sure you haven't a clue why.

You're angry, aren't you, Potter?  Because despite all of it, all your faster-stronger-better-good-er-painful-er-What-did-they-do-to-this-child-er...you are lesser, too.

No understanding without sympathy.  No desire without reason.  These are your Gryffindor weaknesses, grafted onto you when even their possibility should have been stamped out from the start.  Look at you! Divided even now, standing before that puling, pathetic, soulless thing, bound by the dozen Death Eaters trying to keep you from doing the thing you most want to, and need to, and dread to, and cannot, and must do.

But I want you to.

And so...I want you to use that spell, and so
              I want you to be free, and so
              I want to break this ring of power, and so
              I want to move my wand just a fraction of an inch, and so
              I want to flex my wrist, and so

I do.

Are you paying attention, Potter? Because this is why you should have been in Slytherin.

Are you paying attention, Potter? Because this is magic.

This is just mind blowing brilliance, its full of anger and hatred and yet there's hope there as well and its like Draco wants him to succeed and is driving him on. Amazing *hugs*

It's sad to say that I haven't read something with this level of raw emotion in fandom in... quite a while. Or maybe I'm looking in the wrong place, but, still, very nicely-done.
