She had always found Muggle opera fascinating.The sets, the costumes, the gargantuan voices, the raw emotion--she loved it all.

And more than anything in the world, she wanted to sing that way.

She had given it a good shot, really. She'd taken lessons with the best Muggle voice teachers her parents could afford, and she'd practiced, and practiced, and practiced.

It was a pity that she had died before she could actually learn.

But I can still sing now, she thinks from within her portrait in front of Gryffindor tower. It's not over 'til the fat lady sings, anyway.

"Neeeeevillllee!!"

The young boy cringed. When Granny yelled his name that loud...well, it never meant anything good for him. Biting his lip nervously, he put down his trowel from where he'd been playing in the garden and walked to the back porch.

He poked his head inside the doorway cautiously. The coast looked clear...

"Neville Longbottom!"

"Y-yes, Gran?"

She looked imperious standing with her arms akimbo, and he couldn't help but tremble a little at the sight of her.

Surprisingly, she smiled. "Your Hogwarts letter came!" she yelled joyously, waving the letter excitedly.

Neville blinked. "I'm...going to Hogwarts?"

He thought he was so bloody special. With his stupid magic wand, and his stupid, smelly owl, and his stupid fucking school.

For the past four summers, Dudley Dursley had watched his cousin practically turn the house upside down with his arrivals. His parents were tense and mean again, and something stupid always happened. Like when Dudley got a pig's tail, or when Harry broke out of his fucking bedroom, or when Harry blew up his aunt, or when Harry's friends blew up the fireplace.

Glaring at his idiot cousin, Dudley walked toward him in the park. He'd had enough.
