Harry didn't say anything ... but he somehow thought that Hermione had got the point much better than Ron had.

OPEN YOUR EYES

To the tune of "I Will Survive"
A R/Hr filk by Squin

 

Back in second year
When I was Petrified
Harry told me that you sat there
Always right by my side
And you tried to hex Malfoy
But your wand just didn't work
You hurled slugs
To keep me from getting hurt

But then came Fleur
From stupid France
Your eyes were rolling on the floor
I figured I didn't have a chance
I could have said you're 'Just A Friend'
And gone to Bulgaria with Vicky
Then I saw how in one second
You got jealous over me!

 

Oh, honestly! Ron can't you see?
It's so obvious
That you and me are Meant To Be
I know you don't want to hurt me when we fight
It gets out of hand
'Cause we both think, "I am right"

It's not some lie
You can deny:
I know why you go red like that –
You should just write it in the sky!
Oh stop being such a glib
I've got all my love to give
If you'd open your eyes
OPEN YOUR EYES!

 

Hey, hey!

 

It took all the strength I had
Not to curse Delacour
I tried hard to stay civil
When you said, "You are a girl!"
But I won't just sit around
I won't feel sorry for myself
I will not cry
I'll just hold my head up high

Won't you just say
You like me too?
Viktor asked me to the Ball
But I'm in love with you
I was just your last resort
And you expect me to be free
Well, I'm saving all my loving
'Til you admit that you love me!

 

Oh, honestly! It was plain to see
You dropped your pestle
Over that thing in Witch Weekly
Weren't you the one who kept on asking what I'd said?
If you'd had your way
I think Viktor might be dead

Don't try to lie!
You can't deny
You act like such a silly prat
If I mention another guy
Over Lockhart and Cedric (R.I.P)
You nearly had a fit…
Open your eyes
OPEN YOUR EYES!

 

Oh…

 

Honestly! Ron can't you see?
It's so obvious
That you and me are Meant To Be
I know you don't want to hurt me when we fight
It gets out of hand
'Cause we both think, "I am right"

It's not some lie
You can deny:
I know why you go red like that –
You should just write it in the sky!
Oh stop being such a glib
I've got all my love to give
If you'd open your eyes
OPEN YOUR EYES!

OPEN YOUR EYES!!!

I Will Survive belongs to Gloria Gaynor, and whoever wrote it. I own nothing but my madness :o)

Thank you to Gwen (and Arabella, I suppose… !) from HQoW for helping Hermione to see what's so blatantly obvious to the rest of us, and let's hope that Ron gets the message sometime soon. Thanks also to Zsenya for being so awesome, and for making sure that I'm not publishing insanity (but I guess, if I've got it, I should flaunt it. My insanity, that is).
