Sing For The One You Love

The Contest

Sing for the one you love

The contest


" Hey what's going on?" Harry asked Ron and Hermione when he saw all of Gryffindor surrounded around the bulletin board.

"New post, some kind of singing contest, 100 galleons prize money. 50 for the solo and 50 for the group." Hermione answered.

"Dumbledore thinks it would be a fun activity, get the houses together you know. You can be in more than one band but each band can only do one song, and each person that signs up has to do one solo and one group song. I'm thinking of signing up, I mean 100 galleons that's pretty good." Ginny Weasley had just made her way towards them through the crowd.

"People will be holding auditions all over school, its going to be pretty crazy around here. But I think I'll sign up, it might be fun." Hermione told the others.

"You can sing?"

"Oh, shut up Ronald."

"Well if we're all joining, we'd better get started on those auditions." Harry said, heading in a different direction from all the rest.

"Hermione's POV"

'Ok, I need a song, I need a song, I need a song…oh my gosh, Seamus is gonna be there, watching me, I don't think I can do this…I have to do this, I need to prove to myself that I can, just don't think of Seamus…Seamus…crap. Wait a minute, I think I have an idea.'

I ran to my nightstand and pulled out my ipod that Dumbledore enchanted to work at Hogwarts. And started flipping through the songs.

'I need to find the perfect song, one that describes my feelings for him.'

Finally after a few minutes I stopped at the perfect song.

'I hope he gets that this is for him.'

I smiled, thinking it's perfect, now I just need people who can play instruments.

"Ginny's POV"

I ran into Hermione's room, hoping she would be there, and she was, lying on her bed, ipod in hand.

"Hermione, I need your help."

"Ginny, what's the matter?"

"You are the only person I know that has an ipod here, and I need it. I can't think of any songs, I'm running a blank."

"Alright sit down and tell me what kind of song you want."

"I want something that will tell Harry that I'm tired of his crap."

"Haha alright I have the perfect song for you."

'She's right, well obviously it's Hermione, this song is perfect, and Harry will definitely get the message, how could he not. If he doesn't, he's not as smart as I thought. Now where can I get a band.'

"Now one more thing Hermione."

"What's that?" She asked me, I grinned, she recoiled, haha.

"Well we need one solo and one group, you, me, a few others. What do you think?"

"Well it's a lot easier than holding auditions. Sure why not. Maybe get Lavender involved."

"Perfect, I'll go talk to her now."

I walked out hoping it wouldn't take to long to find Lavender, and I hope I don't find her hidden away with my brother somewhere.

"Lavender's POV"

"Mmm, Ron this isn't the time, I need a song for the contest, so do you."

"Well, how bout we make this easier, let's do a duet."

"Wow, Ron that's a really good idea. Now we only have to think of the one song."

"Together." He winked.

"Ron no."

"You heard the woman, Ron no."

Ginny walked in, how did she find us, we're in an empty class room, oh right we're always in an empty class room.

"Lavender I've been looking for you for an hour, I need to ask you something. Hermione and I were just wondering if you wanted to be in a band with us, we'd like to have a third person."

"Just the three of us, sure I'd love to. At least now I don't have to go to any stupid auditions."

"Awesome, I'll let Hermione know and we'll have to get together soon to pick a song."

"Pick a song, I don't even know what duet song to pick for Ron and me."

"Actually, Lav I think I have a song for us to sing. If Ginny would excuse us I'll let you know what it is."

"I'm gone." She turned and shut the door, after we waited a few seconds to make sure she was gone Ron told me his choice.

'How did he think of something like that, what does he secretly listen to love songs or something. Perfect choice, this is gonna be so much fun.'

"Wait, you know their gonna consider this a group song right? Which means we still need a solo song, each." I realized.

"Crap."

"Luna's POV"

'I wonder what I should sing, something happy of course, maybe I'll sing something for Neville. I really like him. If I could only make him see how much I like him…should I wear my radish earrings that night…maybe I'll leave them in my room, I want to impress Neville that night. I think I know what I'll sing for him, but I still need a group song, maybe I'll ask Ginny and Hermione if they want to be in my group, I should go do that now.'

As I walked down the hall I met up with Pansy Parkinson, and an idea hit me.

"Pansy, would you like to be a part of my group, I'm thinking of asking Ginny, Hermione and Lavender as well."

"Sure I guess, I need a group as well so this saves me from searching."

"All right I'll let the others know." I called after her, she already started walking away.

Now to ask the others.

Finally after a few hours I found them all, our band is complete.

"Pansy's POV"

'I can't believe I'll be singing with them what will the others think, what will Draco think. Forget what Draco thinks he doesn't care anyways. Bloody git, I'll show him that night, he thinks he can just do that to me, well think again.'

I had already chosen my song hours ago, now here I am staring at the letter that Granger sent me about when and where we would meet for practice.

'Room of requirements, so that's what that room is called, 7:30 tonight, it's already 7:00 I better get going or I'll be late.'

"ALL"

"She's late, I knew she would be. Why would you ask her to join anyways Luna?" Ginny asked.

"She needed a group I thought I would be nice and ask her to join." She replied

The door finally swung open and in came the last member of the group, Pansy Parkinson.

"Sorry, I got lost." She looked around at all the angry faces, it was 7:50 now.

"Don't worry about it this is your first time coming here. Anyways let's get started, we need to think of a song, as soon as we figure that out then we can make up schedules, so we have enough time to practice our group songs, if any of us have more then one band, and our solo songs." Hermione always the one of reason, and always thinking of timed schedules. "I brought my ipod, so we can go through the songs and pick out the best one."

It was decided, that they were each gonna learn an instrument, instead of finding more members.

"Seamus's POV"

'Okay so one solo and one group, I need a group, I guess I can ask Harry and Ron, but there's still the problem of a solo song. I want to sing something for Hermione, but what, maybe that one, I think that would be a good song. Now time to find Harry and Ron and ask them to join my band, then we'll figure out a song from there.'

"Oi, Harry, would you like to be in my band?"

"I was gonna ask you to be in mine."

"Well we can each have a band. And sure I'll be in yours."

"Alright, you don't mind that I'm gonna ask Malfoy to join do you, I just kinda want five people, Ron and Neville already agreed to join."

"No problem, speaking of Ron, where is he?"

"He just went up to the dorms."

"Cool. Thanks Harry."

I asked Ron, he said yeah. Harry came up a half hour later and we came up with a song for the contest, then Harry told me that Malfoy wants me to be in his band with Harry. Now I need two more songs. This is gonna be a lot of work.

"Draco's POV"

'Two bands, two songs, and both are with Potter and Finnigan, what's wrong with me, out of all the people I could have asked I ask them. And I need a solo song as well, if I know Pansy hers will be about me, so why not retaliate. And I already know what song to sing to her. Now for a song with the band, maybe I should set up a time and place to meet, room of requirements is out, Pansy already told me she's going there with her band so I guess an empty class room will do, maybe Snape's class is free.'

8:00 and their all on time, bloody Gryffindors. A half hour passed and we figured out a song to sing, Potter came up with it and I hate to admit it, but it's good.

"Harry's POV"

"9:00 Neville and Ron will be showing up so we can figure out a song for my band, easier then waiting another day."

"That only gives us a half hour to practice." Seamus complained.

"I know but we still have a lot to go through before we can even play, so we'll set up on a weekend get a good days worth of practice."

'Finally 9:00 and were all here, now we can think up a song for my band, only problem since I thought of the song for Malfoy's band he want's to pick the song for my band. This can only end badly.'

"No Malfoy, I'm not gonna sing that, it's stupid, and why would you want me to, you have to sing this song too you know."

"Oh right, alright then I have a song for you and honestly I think you can pull it off."

'Well I have to admit it's pretty good and I think I can pull it off.'

"Neville's POV"

'How did I end up over here, I followed Harry and the others from Snape's office and yet I still ended up in a dead end with nobody else in sight, I hope I don't meet up with a professor, it's way passed curfew. Alright time to retrace my steps, at least I have time now to think of a solo song I can sing, I still can't believe Luna convinced me to join this contest. Oh well it's to late to back out now, maybe I'll just sing this song, I'm sure she will like it. Oomph on no I hit someone, maybe if I don't look up it won't be so bad.'

"Mr. Longbottom, out after curfew, detention."

'Oh no Professor Snape.'
