A filk by Lilac to the tune of Diary by Bread
The Scene: GINNY is alone in her room, writing in a new - and unenchanted - diary about her first diary experience.
I found Tom's diary in my Transfig book
And found the pages were all clear.
"How strange," I thought and wrote a little note...
My words began to disappear!
But stranger still was that
this Tom wrote back to me.
But I didn't Tom know.
Was he a friend or foe?
We started corresponding for awhile;
He wrote back to me patiently.
He didn't tease me like my brother's did
'Bout how I like Ron's friend Harry.
And though I tried to find the brain of this diary.
Wouldn't you know it? Tom wouldn't show it.
And as I went off to school
I thought, "I won't get ridiculed
By my pocket friend, Tom."
But when the awful Chamber of Secrets
Was opened by Slytherin's heir
I started to discover that this Tom
Simply pretended just to care.
He was just using me to get to Harry.
But Harry saved me by killing Tom's diary!
And as I go through my life,
I will owe to him my life.
It's a debt I shall repay --
I'll save Harry's life one day.
