You might know me as Lauren from The Moaning Myrtles, but for the past year I've been touring full-time as myself, Lauren Fairweather, with The Whomping Willows and Justin-Finch Fletchley!

Don't let this confuse you though, because for the past six months I've been working on a new wizard rock album called The Prince's Tale, from the alternating perspectives of Lily and Snape through the heart-wrenching memories in the chapter with the same name. It's going to guest star a bunch of other wizard rockers you will recognize, and I'm hoping to release it in either July or October this year.

I've always felt a connection with the characters in these books, so when I write songs about them, they end up being about me too. This chapter, especially, hit me really hard and I think that had a lot to do with the fact that I saw a lot of myself in these characters and what they went through. Here's a song from the album about Snape and his family troubles:

I recently performed at a cabaret at my school, and I was able to sing a couple of wizard rock songs!
"Harry Does" is a meta-ish piece about reading Harry Potter. "Mirror of Erised" is about, what else, your heart's desire :)

Title: Playing a dangerous game
Characters/Pairing: Lily Potter, Voldemort
Rating: PG
A/N: Done while "studying" in a cafe - The song came up on my mp3 and this image appeared in my head. Because nothing says Valentine's like a pair of mortal enemies XD.

(Love,)

He will survive, (your so called savior,)
some rules even you can’t bend. (your iron shield)
You’re playing a dangerous game. 
(Love,)
Strength sublime, (when all has ended)
alive in his very skin. (no good or evil.)
Love alone (Only power)
remains

Only Power Remains, by Ministry of Magic
