The Final Filk
Autumn - sunlitdays
I hope this expresses the thoughts of all of us who have waited so long to find out the answers.

To the tune of My Way:

Jo's Way

And now, the end is near;
And so we face the final curtain.
My friends, I'll say it clear,
There's just one thing of which I'm certain.

We've read every book we can,
And greeted each tragic death with "No way!";
And more, much more than this,
We did it Jo's way.

Plot threads, yes, there's a few
To be wrapped up that I could mention.
Like Snape and what he did,
And is he truly beyond redemption?

She planned each chapter's course;
Each ship and every confrontation,
But more, much more than this,
She did it her way.

Yes, there were times when we all knew
That Harry bit off more than he could chew.
But through it all, when there was doubt,
He ate it up and spit it out.
He faced it all and he stood tall;
And did it Jo's way.

We've loved, we've laughed and cried.
We've suffered deaths and seen ships sinking.
And now, as tears subside,
There's just one thing that I am thinking:

To see she did all that,
I think it's really quite amazing
And I have to tip my hat:
She knows how to drive us crazy.

Against the Dark Lord, what's Harry got?
He's got the power that the Dark Lord knows not.
He'll say the things he truly feels,
And not the words of one who kneels.
The record shows he took the blows -
And did it Jo's way!

Brilliant. I'm going to download the song though, so I can hear it too - who sang it?

Frank Sinatra FTW.

That is an awesome rendition. Someone should do an audio of it. :3

As Papi said, Frank Sinatra, and thank you! :3 I'd love someone with a really good voice like Clay Aiken or Josh Groban to do it. XD

Aha! Brilliant! Harry Potter is steadily moving into the realm of the operatic; Get Il Divo to sing this!

True. Nice wrap-up of the fannish experience. *nods*

Thank you, Anamama! *hugs* Good luck for tonight and I will be able to upload the wma of the Sunshine song you loved tonight!

Oh, thank you! That'll be nice. *hugs* This waiting stress has finally landed in my stomach, after doing remarkably well for a long, long time. Now, however - eep! *takes deep breath* Must sit calmly, enjoy my tea. *nods* Maybe fill the time with upoading pics. That should put my mind elsewhere.

And I keep forgetting to use another icon, like this, for instance.

Stress goes to my stomach, too! Camomile tea is good for being calm. Just remember, it will all be over in... LESS THAN TWELVE HOURS!

Starsea, that's brilliant! A very fitting tribute.... Although when I first read it I thought youe were talking about our Jo (Dogstar) :D.

Haha, that would be cool, wouldn't it? ;)

That really made me laugh you should send that to her im sure she would laugh lol you know on the interview in muggle.net she said that she imagined that song to be Dumbledore's played at his funeral

Oh really? I didn't know that, how appropriate!

But I wouldn't know how.

It is rather appropriate isn't it? that's one of the reasons I laughed when reading it and at the fact that your very true on what you wrote she did indeed do it her way :) well I don't know if you want to send it but this link is to the two addresses http://www.mugglenet.com/jkr/contact.shtml
I really do like this :) oh... I'm also a reader of your sailor moon works

Wow, thank you!

And nice to know that you like my BSSM stories as well. :)

^-^ A filk person... I didn't really think anyone else in sm-monthly was a filk person. That is besides Raya. Of course American and British filk are different, at least with singers and such... But there was a chance that you recognized Leslie Fish when I used her, or at least had an idea of the music I had ChibiUsda listening to. ^-^

I hope your still high and dry.

*wonders off still deciding if she wants to read the last HP book or not...*
