Title: I’ll Be A Better Son
Word count: ~200
Characters/pairings: Harry/Draco, implied Draco/Astoria
Rating: 12
Summary: Draco enters Auror training at nineteen, to prove himself and his family to the world. 2000 begins with Draco part of a public new relationship.
Warnings: angst
Disclaimer: The boys belong to JKR, even though I’m often much nicer to them than she is.
Author’s Notes: This type of poem is a villanelle. It was written for poetic_hp’s current challenge, decade. Also, iambic pentameter continues to make me its bitch.


All right then – the new decade is begun.
Time for things to change; for the sun to shine.
I will help them now. I’ll be a better son.

Be an Auror. Stop hiding behind Mum.
The nasty doubters can just stand in line.
All right then – the new decade is begun.

Training under damn Potter is no fun,
But I – I need to prove myself, not whine.
I will help them now. I’ll be a better son.

Being under Potter is so much fun,
I want to tell the whole world that he’s mine.
All right then – the new decade is begun.

Harry and I went public. What have I done?
Dad got Howlers. Duty chokes me – a vine.
I will help them now. I’ll be a better son.

They need me to marry. I want to run.
Harry... No, stop this. There’s no time to pine.
All right then – the new decade is begun.
I will help them now. I’ll be a better son.
