surrounded by a stormy sea just as they are

Fandom: Harry Potter x Greek and Roman Mythology

Summary: Harry meets a Slytherin prefect when Hagrid takes him to Diagon Alley that first time.


“Better Hufflepuff than Slytherin,” Hagrid is saying rather darkly. “There’s not a single witch or wizard who went bad who wasn’t in Slytherin.”

“Well that’s just hurtful, Mr. Hagrid,” Someone interjects out of the blue, and Harry almost drops his ice-cream from surprise.

He spins around, and then he has to crane his head up to take in the lanky teen standing behind them. He looks to be quite a few years older than Harry, with a head of dark curls and grey eyes that remind Harry of the stormy sea that surrounded the hut that Uncle Vernon dragged them to. He’s not dressed in wizard robes; in fact, that white shirt looks normal- Muggle, but the pants don’t look like they’re made of any fabric Harry’s seen before.

Imagine ...

Snowy mountains or stormy sea,

Just think of it and you can let it be.

It is so easy for you to become free,

Don’t just look, but try to see.

Make small things grow and paint them bright,

Care for people and borrow them light.

Imagine – these many things you could do,

If you would stop doubting and start being you.

Imagine yourself surrounded by family,

Having a house, a garden with a huge tree.

Or imagine yourself getting gray, weak and old

And having no stories which are worth to be told.

It is finally, if I want to be honest my friend,

Totally up to you and in your own hand.

Just always remember that it is up to you,

Where you go in life and what you go through,

If you can imagine it, it can also get true,

So don’t say “it’s impossible”, but start to do.
