I’m trying to track down an HP fanfic that’s Ginny’s perspective of Chamber of Secrets. It was by Arabella. Can anyone help me out?
Surrounded by four women yelling at me
They all claim that they are who I should be
An artist, a healer, a wife, and a scholar
All hurl out their arguments over each other
"I’ll make you happy and give you expression,"
The artist cries out, unhinged and impassioned
"We’ll change generations, we’ll heal many souls!
Who doesn’t love songs about white middle class woes?”
"Clearly she’s a bitch, completely useless,"
The healer proclaims feeling self-important
"If you want to be helpful and less self-absorbed,
Together we can fix sickness, poverty and war!”
"That’s fucking ridiculous," the wife pipes up,
"Ambition is risky and always self-involved.
The only real way to let go of yourself
Is to give ego over to husband and house”
"The 50s are calling, you ignorant cunt,
The scholar yells out, feeling malevolent,
"There’s more to life than giving service
Be selfish, learn something, fuck men, art, and purpose!”
"Shut up, SHUT UP!" I have to shout out,
"I can’t even think you’re all screaming so loud!
I can’t even move, you all pull different ways,
You’ve left me with nothing, I’m frozen in place.”
We all look quite sad and a bit homicidal
Five women like statues, desire our marble
We can’t reconcile, we can’t synthesis
So we’ll volley our words until somebody dies
I hate how for years I’ve been standing in place
With four stubborn women who all wear my face
