Summary:

This is a fanfic in honor of all those noble people who died. (And some who weren't noble)



Chapter 1: Lily and James Potter
  [Printer Friendly Version of This Chapter]

James perished to protect Lily. 

Lily perished to protect Harry.

Harry perished for the Wizarding World.

Harry had the benefit of not truly dying. Lily and James did not. Lily and James are extremely noble people.

 

James

 

He illegally became an animagus to help his best friend. He helped another become an animagus as well. He died to save his wife and son. He was a Marauder and part of the Order of the Phoenix. He helped Dumbledore fight the Wizarding World.

 

Lily

 

Lily is the reason Harry lived to become the Harry Potter we know and love today. She befriended Severus Snape even though everyone hated and bullied him.  Lily is the reason Snape is on Dumbledore's side. Lily's kindness saved Harry's life more than once.



Chapter 2: Professor Quirrell
  [Printer Friendly Version of This Chapter]

Ode to Professor Quirrell

 

 

We never knew you well

But you were a good teacher

And we're sure that if you'd lasted

You'd be a valuable asset to the faculty

You would've taught Harry great things

If only you'd lived one more year

Or two

 

 

We never got to know Quirrell that well so it would've been nice to get to know him better.  Apparently Quirrell was very good in the field. He was one of the first characters we know that died in the face of Voldemort. 

Brave Quirrell

Smart Quirrell

Kind Quirrell

Ambitious Quirrel

He was a good teacher, not to be forgotten.



Chapter 3: Moaning Myrtyle
  [Printer Friendly Version of This Chapter]

Moaning Myrtle

 

You were a ghost when we met you

But we knew you were important

From the very start

 

We know how you died

But not much else

But still, you have proven to be useful

 

Ode to Moaning Myrtle, the most glorious ghost of them all.

You helped Harry in second year and in return he abandoned you in third.

You helped him again in fourth year and he never spoke of you again. 

You helped move forward the plot,

Yet no one gives you a second thought.

 

 



Chapter 4: Cedric Diggory
  [Printer Friendly Version of This Chapter]

Ode to Cedric

 

 You were killed a spare

But you are so much more

You were an exemplary Hufflepuff

You were the true Triwizard champion

You brought Hufflepuff glory

You did not deserve your fate

Yet people think you did.

You were never a spare.

 

Limerick

 

You are an amazing Hufflepuff

You were much more than enough

Cedric Diggory

You were not in a big hurry

We loved you more than marshmallow fluff

 

You deserve to be buried on the Quidditch Pitch

The place where helped Hufflepuff the most

The place where you beat Harry Potter

You aren't a spare!



Chapter 5: Sirius Black
  [Printer Friendly Version of This Chapter]

    Ode to a black dog

You were funny

Helpful

Kind

Sirius 

An Animagus

And all-around awesome

 

Smart

Inspiring

Radiant

Impeccable

Ultimate

Saintly

 

You helped Harry in every way

Keeping him alive for another day

Being an amazing godfather

You were practically his father

When you show up there is no dismay!

 

Oh big black dog 

How we love you (even though Cedric is clearly better, just saying)

You made our days

Before the Department of Mysteries killed you (well technically it was kinda Bellatrix)

 

 



Chapter 6: Albus Percival Wolfric Brian Dumbledore
  [Printer Friendly Version of This Chapter]

Albus Percival Wolfric Brian Dumbledore.

 

Nitwit. Blubber. Oddmit. Tweak.

Those famous words.

Someone who saved Draco from doing a dark task.

Someone who cares about his students.

An unforgettable character.

A noble man

Nitwit. Blubber. Oddmit. Tweak.



Chapter 7: Dobby
  [Printer Friendly Version of This Chapter]

Dobby

You were awesome

You were an inspiration

You died to save the Golden Trio

You helped Harry again and again, just like Myrtle

Unlike Myrtle, you are thanked, again and again

Harry thanks you

Harry cares about you

Harry enjoys your company

We all do

 

Dobby, Dobby

We adore you

 

 

Here lies Dobby, a free elf



Chapter 8: Peter Pettigrew
  [Printer Friendly Version of This Chapter]

Peter Pettigrew

 

Killed for being an unloyal JERK

 

You revived the Dark Lord

You KILLED CEDRIC DIGGORY

You KILLED CEDRIC DIGGORY

You KILLED CEDRIC DIGGORY

You KILLED CEDRIC DIGGORY

You KILLED CEDRIC DIGGORY

You KILLED CEDRIC DIGGORY

You KILLED CEDRIC DIGGORY

You KILLED CEDRIC DIGGORY

You KILLED CEDRIC DIGGORY

You KILLED CEDRIC DIGGORY

You KILLED CEDRIC DIGGORY

You KILLED CEDRIC DIGGORY

You KILLED CEDRIC DIGGORY

You KILLED CEDRIC DIGGORY

I admit I care a bit too much about Cedric

 



Chapter 9: Severus Snape
  [Printer Friendly Version of This Chapter]

J.K Rowling says you're grey

Some agree with you

Others hate you

Others adore you (I'm talkin' to you, Draco)

But we can all agree that you didn't deserve to die
