Subject: Lily Evans Potter
Title: My Little Phoenix
Warnings/Notes: In my headcanon, Lily is a very strong independent women. She doesn't put up with shit from anyone and she's not afraid to stand up for her friends or her beliefs. She doesn't put up with jerks of any kind. She's basically the ultimate HBIC.

Out of the ash
I rise with my red hair
And I eat men like air.
- Sylvia Plath

"Stripped Pt. 1" Christina Aguilera - Intro

Sorry you can't define me
Sorry I break the mold
Sorry that I speak my mind
Sorry don't do what I'm told
Sorry if I don't fake it
Sorry I come too real
I will never hide what I really feel. No way, oh.

So here it is
No hype, no glass, no pretense.
Just me

"All I Need" Natasha Bedingfield

I'm a dreamer, I'm a gypsy
I'm a river passing by
Got to run to keep up with me
I'm a sailor in the sky

All I need is what I've got
My soul is free and I've got more than enough
I believe in love and I'll never stop
That's why all I need is what I've got

"Freckles" Natasha Bedingfield

'cause a face without freckles is like a sky without stars
Why waste a second not loving who you are
Those little imperfections make you beautiful, lovable, valuable,
They show your personality inside your heart
Reflecting who you are

“A girl should be two things: who and what she wants.”
― Coco Chanel

"Not a Pretty Girl" Ani Difranco

I am not a pretty girl
that is not what I do
I ain't no damsel in distess
and I don't need to be rescued
so put me down punk
maybe you'd prefer a maiden fair
isn't there a kitten stuck up a tree somewhere

I am not an angry girl
but it seems like I've got everyone fooled
every time I say something they find hard to hear
they chalk it up to my anger
and never to their own fear
and imagine you're a girl
just trying to finally come clean
knowing full well they'd prefer you
were dirty and smiling

"Unwritten" Natasha Bedingfield

I break tradition, sometimes my tries, are outside the lines
We've been conditioned to not make mistakes, but I can't live that way

Release your inhibitions
Feel the rain on your skin
No one else can feel it for you
Only you can let it in

Drench yourself in words unspoken
Live your life with arms wide open
Today is where your book begins

"Born This Way" Lady Gaga

My mama told me when I was young
We are all born superstars
She rolled my hair and put my lipstick on
In the glass of her boudoir

"There's nothing wrong with loving who you are"
She said, "'Cause he made you perfect, babe"
"So hold your head up girl and you'll go far

“Above all, be the heroine of your life, not the victim."
― Nora Ephron

"Stripped Pt. 2" Christina Aguileria - Interlude

Sorry if I ain't perfect
Sorry I don't give a -what-
Sorry I ain't a diva
Sorry just know what I want
Sorry I'm not a virgin
Sorry I'm not a slut
I won't let you break me
Think what you want

To all my dreamers out there - I'm with you
All my underdogs, ha - I feel you
Lift your head high and stay strong
Keep pushin' on

"Bitch" Meredith Brooks

I hate the world today
You're so good to me
I know but I can't change
Tried to tell you
But you look at me like maybe
I'm an angel underneath
Innocent and sweet
Yesterday I cried
Must have been relieved to see
The softer side
I can understand how you'd be so confused
I don't envy you
I'm a little bit of everything
All rolled into one

I'm a bitch, I'm a lover
I'm a child, I'm a mother
I'm a sinner, I'm a saint
I do not feel ashamed
I'm your hell, I'm your dream
I'm nothing in between
You know you wouldn't want it any other way

"Breakaway" Kelly Clarkson

I'll spread my wings and I'll learn how to fly
I'll do what it takes til' I touch the sky
And I'll make a wish
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway
Out of the darkness and into the sun
But I won't forget all the ones that I love
I'll take a risk
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway

Wanna feel the warm breeze
Sleep under a palm tree
Feel the rush of the ocean
Get onboard a fast train
Travel on a jet plane, far away (I will)
And breakaway

“A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.”
― Coco Chanel

""Can't Hold Us Down"" Christina Aguilera

So what am I not supposed to have an opinion
Should I be quiet just because I'm a woman
Call me a bitch cos I speak what's on my mind
Guess it's easier for you to swallow if I sat and smiled

When a female fires back
Suddenly big talker don't know how to act
So he does what any little boy would do
Making up a few false rumors or two

That for sure is not a man to me
Slanderin' names for popularity
It's sad you only get your fame through controversy
But now it's time for me to come and give you more to say

"Do What You Do" Pink

Some people like the summer when it's hot
Some people like the winter cold
Some people speak they minds when they wanna
And some other people ain't so bold
Whatever it is that you do you should do
You should do it wit ya head held high
So when you're doin your thing it's cuz you wanna
And they never can ask you why

I say do what you do
Say what you say
Mean what you mean when you say
Cuz it's your life, gotta make your own rules
And you gotta do it your way

"My Little Phoenix" Tarja

Gracefully she's circling higher.
She has the wind beneath her wings
and looks down on us
She said:
"Robbed of my innocence, had no more time to play.
I sure got my feathers burned, but I'm stronger than the flames".

Here she comes, here she comes.
I've been waiting for so long.
Here she comes
rose again from the flames
my little Phoenix

“If the moon smiled, she would resemble you.
You leave the same impression
Of something beautiful, but annihilating.”
― Sylvia Plath

Thanks! :D :D :D It was very hard finding songs by female artists that didn't have something to do about relationships, break ups or men in general. :/
I really liked that song! :D

I love how you've interspersed the mix with quotes to give further info into your Lily headcanon :)
and I adore the disjointed thing going on in the artwork, it's great :)

Thanks! That was kind of a last minute decision to do that and considering I'm a procrastinator and waited until the last minute.
I'm so glad that you and Amy let me use that image! When I decided who I wanted to do I knew exactly the image I wanted to use.

I love your Lily headcanon, completely ♥

Thank you! I always have a hard time explaining what about a character I like and such. This mix was a good way to show that without having to use my own words!
