This is from Holly’s point of view. Just so you know.

Hands touch
Eyes meet
Sudden silence
Sudden heat

Hearts leap
In a giddy whirl
He could be that boy
But I’m not that girl

As Holly watched Artemis walk off with Minerva, smiling, she remembered all of their awkward, and slightly romantic times together. When she kissed him after coming out of Limbo. No1 “pronouncing” them man and elf. Kissing him when they went back in time. She thought of all they could have been, would have been. A lone tear slid down her cheek. She brushed it away, and stopped wishing. It would only hurt her.

Don’t dream too far
Don’t lose sight of who you are
Don’t remember that rush of joy
He could be that boy
I’m not that girl

She had to stop this. It just made her heart ache. It wasn’t even right for them to be together. For one, she was an elf, him a human. It wouldn’t work. She refused to remember how happy she had felt with him. Her best friend.

Ev’ry so often we long to steal
To the land of what-might-have-been
But that doesn’t soften the ache we feel
When reality sets back in

She wanted to run away into the past, stay in that moment, kissing him forever. But she still wouldn’t be able to stop it. Stop the pain. Her heart would still feel broken. She would still know that it wasn’t right. Tears dripped slowly from her eyes now. She was curled in a ball, head on her knees.

Blithe smile
Lithe limb
She who’s winsome
She wins him
Gold hair with a gentle curl
That’s the girl he chose
And Heaven knows
I’m not that girl

Holly watched as Minerva placed her hand gently on his arm, and give him a shy, flirtatious smile. He smiles back. Holly looked back down as she saw Artemis leaning over to kiss her. He had chosen now.

Don’t wish, don’t start
Wishing only wounds the heart
I wasn’t born for the rose and the pearl
There’s a girl I know
He loves her so
I’m not that girl

Holly wiped her red eyes, starting to feel happy for them. She wasn’t meant to be married. She was too stubborn for that. Minerva was perfect for him. He loved her. Before she stood, and walked away, Holly had one last thought. He may have been the right boy for me, but I could never have been the right girl for him.

  1. First comment dance. any way this was so cute, i don’t even know the song but this fic blew me away i beg for more

  2. Awww! I have to agree with lionheart that was cute and more. You made it go so perfect with the song.
    No mistakes, but awsome description for example: Holly watched as Minerva placed her hand gently on his arm, and give him a shy, flirtatious smile.

    Also with this one part of the song I thought that it was made for Minerva: Gold hair with a gentle curl

    I have to give that not five, but six lollipops! 🙂
    *Wipes tear off of cheek* That was like the best sonffic I ever read.:)

  3. awww!!Thanks a million times! I didn’t think it was that good, though. you make me feel so good about myself!
    yeah, i agree that it was made for Minerva. That’s part of the reason why i did this song because of that part. Thank you!!!!

  4. Yay! A Minerva/Arty fic that doesn’t end in tears, hatred, or Minerva losing. And as an added bonus, Holly isn’t toohorribly sad about it!

    So, on to errors. Or at least things I would tweak.
    You- she remembered all of their awkward, and slightly romantic times together

    Me- she remembered all of their awkward, and slightly romantic, times together. (I dunno if that’s a real error, but I think the comma would be nice)

    You- She had to stop this. It just made her heart ache.

    Me- She had to stop this, as it just made her heart ache. (The short sentences come across as choppy to me)

    You- Holly watched as Minerva placed her hand gently on his arm, and give him a shy, flirtatious smile. He smiles back.

    Me- Holly watched as Minerva placed her hand gently on his arm, and gave him a sly, flirtatious smile. He smiled back. (Make sure your words tense agrees. Don’t mix future and present)

    Anyways, good job, I give it 4 stars 🙂

    Over and out

    Thanks for all the tips! I didn’t really read this one over first, cuz I was in a hurry, so thanks for pointing these out! I’ll fix them as soon as I can. Thanks! ~FowlsGirl

    Awwww I feel so sad for Holly… I love this songfic but now you made me hate Minerva. (I’m a strong A/H shipper)

    sorry, but i thought it just fit, and im not really a shipper for either, but i thought it would be cute. and thanks! ~FowlsGirl

  6. I hate Minerva… always have, anyway, but now I hate her even more. Who could possibly want a blond bimbo like her? Albeit a genius blond bimbo… don’t worry, Holly! 🙁
    Good story, me likes.

    You hate Minerva? Then why is your name Minnie? Cuz that kinda sounds like a nickname for Minerva. Oh, well. You have some A/H shippers, some A/M shippers. As I said before, I’m neither. Just thought it sounded good. Also, I know by responding to that, I kind of encouraged it, but can you please stay on topic? Hating her doesn’t exactly have to do with the story. Thanks. ~FowlsGirl

    Just look up the song on you tube. and you know, if you read the story at just the right moments while listening to the story, its really beautiful.

    I love songfics, but i have no idea how to write them. Actually, i’ve never tried.

    You know what, i’m gonna try right now!

  8. Aaawww…
    That song is perfect for this story.
    I’m a A/M shipper, that’s why I liked this so much. But of course that isn’t the only reason. You write so well, I’ll read also your other stories!

  9. Aawww, thanks! Other people comment, and say nice things, but that just made me feel good! Thanks for saying you’ll read the other stuff! I haven’t had much on some of the things like ‘The Expected’ and ‘Minerva or Holly.’

    Thank you again! 🙂

  10. I love the play “Wicked”! This is my fave song! It’s perfect! I’m just mad I didn’t think of it first ;-p

    5/s!
