Strange Wind
by Rage

characters: Neville, Snape, Grandma Longbottom

Summary: after the less than spectacular defeat of Voldemort, life goes on. Neville picks up an interesting doll from an interesting bunch of women. Things get odd.

Notes: Someone on the snapeslash list posted a challenge involving the Weasley twin's line of Wizards Action Figures starring the HP cast (the heros of the war, etc...)So after a very, very, long while, I suddenly had an Idea and decided to give it a go. The original conception was for a short, funny smutfic between Neville and DollSnape. And as these things tend to, it decided to turn itself into a massive novel length Neville and Snape genfic. As there generally is a dearth in good, long genfic, I'm not complaining at all. Still... interesting how a story can just go in completely unexpected directions.

--I finally spat a nice portion of this story out during NaNoWriMo where a friend and I acted as if we joined and privately wrote fanfic instead of publically agonizing through an original one. Not that this monster was without its share of blood and shredded brainflesh.

Acknowledgements: Much thanks to my sister, SephXIII, Pastles and Welson for their help and encouragement and their kicking that got me to write past chapter 1. And very HUGE HUGE thanks to Tavalyra who beat this story into grammatical submission and for her infinite help in expanding my vocabulary.

Archive: Ask first,otherwise you can find it on my site, ff.net, and possibly other archives in the future.

-=Image of Me=- {Evangelion(VOX)}

You can't believe what you see
Am I real or just a dream?
Am I something that you need?
Or just an image of me?

And if you stare into the fire too long
Is the flame as strong?
Or if you're lost inside a fantasy
Does it end up real?
So you think that you're in love with me
Or is it just the whole idea?
You must be sure that every single thing
Is what you believe in.

You can't believe what you see
Am I real or just a dream?
Am I something that you need?
Or just an image of me?

If every drop of rain stayed in the sky
Would the world just die?
Or if the Earth revolved around a different sun
Would our lives have begun?
So if you think that you're in love with me
Tell me, can you still be free?
For on the surface of most everything
Something hides within.

I hear you in my head
All of the things that you said
I'm listening again and again
'Cause I never used to think of you as a friend

Now I hear it in my head (My head that)
That strange wind that cries
It wakes me up inside (Inside)
That strange wind that cries
It makes me feel alive
To see it in your eyes
That strange wind (Strange wind) that cries

Yeah I'm still here, thumbing through the book that you left
A hundred different symbols, I always wondered what they meant.
A circle, a jagged edge, a cross
Holding little bits of the truth
Whatever I may be hiding
I think that I could show it to you (To you)

When I hear it in my head (My head that)
That strange wind that cries
It wakes me up inside (Inside)
That strange wind that cries
It makes me feel alive
To see it in your eyes
That strange wind (Strange wind) that cries

Oh, I've got so much to tell you
I've been lonely, I've been wild
And when I see it in your eyes a wilder cry than even mine
I know something's hidden inside
Strange Wind That Cries

I hear you in my head

There it is again
That strange wind that cries
It breaks me up sometimes
That strange wind that cries
It makes me feel alive
To see it in your eyes

That strange wind (Strange wind)
That strange wind (Strange wind that)
Cries

I hear you in my head
All of the things that you said
I'll be keeping all your secrets 'till the end
'Cause I'm getting used to
Thinking of you as a friend

Strange wind
