Lily Molly Marauders


As Lily was lying there in her familiar four poster bed thoughts were slipping in and out of her mind. She had spent most of her night, and morning, thinking about how she’d acted towards James that very evening. She had thought about it, she had obsessed about it and she had obsessed about it some more. Finally she’d fallen asleep with the comforting thought that it was all James’ fault.

“Molly! MOO! wake up! We are going to be late!” Lily was running around with rolls in her hair and a terrified expression on her face.

“What? What’s the time?” mumbled Molly rising up from her sleeping position and rubbing her eyes.

“It’s almost 5:30! We’re going to be late!”

“brlbrlslslrbrsl” mumbled Molly falling back into her sleeping position.

Lily ran towards Molly’s bed and ripped open the blinds. Behind them Molly was sleeping on her stomach, drooling on her sheet.

“MOO! Moo! Moo! Moo! Moo! Moo!”

“OK! Ok! Ok! Ok! Ok! Ok! My gosh you sound like a cow hopped up on sugar…I’m getting up! ” Once again Molly rose up, and sat herself on the edge of the bed. “How you get to be more annoying each first day of each year, I do not know” said Molly as she stood up and walked towards the bathroom. While Molly was locked inside the bathroom, Lily was pacing back and forth, stressing about what her schedule would be and going through her yearly ritual of insanity when thinking that she was going to fail this year and be forced to become a waiter in the Leaky Cauldron, get married to Tom and have 12 kids.

“Moo!! Get out!” Lily was banging as hard as she could on the bathroom door. Molly opened the bathroom door so quickly that Lily accidentally punched Molly in the face, causing her to fall over with blood pouring out of her nose.

“Oh my god I’m so sorry!” Lily bent down to help her up but Molly shook her off.

“Lily, you need to calm down, ok?” Molly pulled herself up and walked over to the sink and grabbed the tissue box, pulled out a tissue, broke it in half and put some in her nostrils and bent her head back to stop the bleeding.

“I’m sorry…I’m”

“Lily…Lily listen to me…breathe” Molly interrupted her while she walked over to her best friend and shook her gently.

“I’m calm…I’m calm” Lily did some of her breathing exercises and when she was perfectly calm she walked over to Molly and examined her nose. Lily had always wanted to be a healer and this was her chance to prove herself.

“It looks like your nose it broken, so I would suggest you go to Madam Pomfrey”

“Ok I will before breakfast, now we don’t have school for another few hours so you can go downstairs and get ready and I’ll be with you in a few hours ok?” Molly walked towards her bed and fell back on it and in a minute she was snoring again.

Lily did what Molly said and got ready for her first day. Lily really believed in first impressions so every first day she would put on an extra shade of lipstick and some mascara. She went down the stairs to find the Gryffindor common room. She went over to the fireplace and without thinking she sat down on the couch, where, incidentally, James was sleeping. Lily accidentally sat on his foot and without looking at him she rapidly said:

“Oh my god I’m so sorry! Gosh what’s wrong with me today I keep hurting people” she said burying her face in her hands.

“That’s alright” James said rubbing his left foot.

“Oh it’s you” Lily mumbled quietly. “Why are you sleeping here?”

“What? Should it make a difference whether is me or anyone else you hurt?” James said after being hurt by her rude reaction when she knew it had been him she had sat on.

“Why do you always have to make me feel so bad?” snapped Lily.

“You hurt me, and to answer your question, I’m sleeping here because Sirius accidentally, or not, broke my bed and my Reparo spell isn’t strong enough so I couldn’t fix it, so I had to sleep here” James replied. He was set on making her feel bad for hurting him the way he always hurts her.

Lily sat down quietly on the armchair next to the fireplace. This was her favorite chair and mornings were her favorite time. She loved watching the sunrise which she could barely see from her chair but if she leaned slightly the left she could see the suns rays hitting the lake and the forbidden forest, but this morning was different, because the whole morning had been ruined by the appearance of James Potter.

Why she hated him she didn’t know. Whenever she had asked herself that question she had to sit for a while and ponder. She would finally come to the conclusion that he had a quality. “What kind of quality?” they would ask and she would answer “he just…has a quality”.

“Lily? Lily wake up! We’re going to be late!” Molly whispered softly in Lily’s ear.

“WHAT?” Lily woke up in a flash and being so caught in the moment she flung up her hand and hit Molly in the face yet again, giving her huge scratch marks on her cheek. “Oh my god Moo I’m so sorry!”

Molly took a deep breath before she started talking:

“It’s time to go to breakfast now Lily”

At that moment Sirius entered the room with an uncontrollable hair-do and bloodshot eyes.

“Woah! Molly, what happened? Went for a walk in the forbidden forest?” Sirius let out a batch of hysterical laughter.

“Lily happened” At this Sirius ran over to Molly and put his arm around her.

“She could be a Marauder” he said trying furiously to make eye contact with James. “I’m telling you, she could be… I’ve never been so proud” he pretended to wipe a tear of his cheek.

Molly left to go to the bathroom to wipe of the blood from the scratches that were actually quite deep. While she had been in the bathroom, James, Lily and Peter had left and Sirius was sitting on the couch staring intensively into the flames in the fireplace and Remus was gathering his books.

“They look like they’re dancing, it’s so…visual”

“Oh my god, I swear I think it is not possible for anyone can make less sense” said Remus as he stuffed his book in his bag and looked at Molly.

“Are you coming to breakfast Molly?”

“Yeah, yeah I’m coming I just have to get my stuff, I’ll see you outside” she answered as she walked up the stairs to the girls dormitory. When she came back down Sirius was on his way out the portrait hole.

“You wanna join me?”

“Sure, Remus is waiting for me outside” Molly walked down the final two steps and walked up to Sirius who held the portrait hole open for her. When she was going through in front of him he couldn’t help but let his eyes wonder to her ‘hind quarters’.

James Lily Peter


“Hello James” it was Daniella Pedron. She was part of the trio of Marauders most loyal fans.

“Hey James, you look good today” this time it was Joan Villings.

“Um…thank you?” answered James who had gotten quite used to these hallway attacks from thee 5th years girls.

What he didn’t know was that ahead of him a certain red haired girl was so jealous that her head was blowing up to the size of a hot air balloon, so just incase, Lily decided to swing her hips a little extra to each side incase he was watching.

For the rest of the day the lessons were as usual, except harder, the Professors were as usual, except stricter and the students were as usual, except dumber.

“LUNCH!” exclaimed Sirius. “Oh how I’ve missed you sweet food”

“You had breakfast like five hours ago!” said Remus rolling his light brown eyes.

“Exactly, a lifetime, and a guys gotta eat!”

“Oh dear…” sighed James.

“Leave him alone, its inspiring” said Molly smiling at Sirius who was stuffing his face with bacon. At this moment Sirius stopped in his tracks of and stared at Molly.

“I’m gonna marry her” he whispered to James just loud enough for Molly to hear. Blushing, she went back to eating her salad.

Two weeks had passed since that first day and still everything was the same. James was getting his heart broken by Lily on a daily basis, Sirius was eating back the pounds he’d lost during the summer, Molly was desperately trying to do well in potions by following Professor Slughorn around all day asking for tips, Remus had read through 5 of the 20 books he’d brought with him, and Peter, well… Peter had not been seen much during these past two weeks.

Peter had been seen to secretly slip of when everyone else were distracted or he’d just use phrases such as “I need to go to the bathroom” or “I need to go to the library”.

Molly Peter


“Hey I’ll go with you” Molly stood up from the couch and picked up her bag “I need to finish my dementor essay anyway”

“Um…I…on second thought…” Peter started.

“Come on lets go” Molly linked arms with Peter and pulled him out of the portrait hole.

As they walked down the familiar path to the library, Molly turned to Peter and asked:

“So, how far have you gotten?”

“I…um…I haven’t started yet” mumbled Peter.

“Great! Me neither!” smiled Molly, she was actually proud of how well she was doing in Defense against the Dark Arts.

When they arrived at the library Peter told Molly that he would catch up with her inside because he needed to go to the bathroom.

Molly Regulus


As Molly was sitting in there waiting for Peter, she was watching the other students who were spending their Saturday morning in the library. There was Denny Cleave, the 4th year who absolutely envied the Marauders; he had gotten to the habit of hanging out in the library. At the book shelf closes to Molly, Stanley Cutte was reading a book on werewolves and at the table farthest from hers Carl and Bobbie was sitting, studying. At the table across from hers, a group of 5th year girls, including Joan Villings, Katti Finglsley and Daniela Pedron, were whispering hastily and giggling. At this Molly smiled, she had too been like that in her 2nd year, before she had met Lily.


***


It was during a potions lesson in her 1st year. She had been called to the front of the class because she had accidentally knocked over her cauldron causing the potion inside to burn a hole in the wooden desk. As Slughorn had been scolding her and Molly had been so close to breaking down and crying before the whole class when Lily had stood up and had taken the blame for her. Usually he would yell at the student but Lily was his favorite student.

“That’s alright dear, it’s a one time mistake” Slughorn smiled at Lily and then turned back to face Molly again and said “Now you’ll clean up Lily’s mess, right?”

“Yes Professor” mumbled Molly whose eyes were still filled with tears.

After class when Molly had finished cleaning up her mess, she left the potions room, outside which Lily had been waiting for her and ever since they had been best friends.


***


When Molly had been sitting in the library for over 30 minutes she was getting annoyed with Peter. She gathered up all her parchments and her books and stuffed them in her bag and started walking towards the exit. As she turned the corner of one of the bookshelves she accidentally bumped into someone coming from the other direction. She dropped all her books and slowly bent down to pick them up. At the same time the dark figure of Regulus Black bent down to help her.

“I’m so sorry” he mumbled.

“It’s ok Sirius” whispered Molly.

“Oh…I’m not Sirius” Molly looked up. Her face was inches away from Regulus’ and as he looked deep into her eyes he started blushing and hurriedly looked back down again.

“Oh I’m sorry” Molly said as she stood up quickly almost bumping into Regulus once more.

“Here you go” he said as he handed her books back to her. Molly took the books and quickly mumbled a short apology and hurried from the scene.

Regulus was left staring at the back of her head as she walked out the library doors. He shook it off and walked back to the table he came from where Carl was sitting staring at him with those cold grey eyes.

“Is there something you’d like to tell me?”

Sirius James


Sirius and James were sitting outside under the big oak tree by the lake, James was playing with his stolen snitch and Sirius was lying on the ground braiding his own hair.

“You know what I thought about?” James held the snitch tightly in his fist as he turned to Sirius who had stopped braiding his hair.

“What mate?” said James.

“You know that Voldemort?” the expression on Sirius’ face showed fear.

“Of course I know ‘that Voldemort’, he’s the guy my parents are fighting against…anyway, what about him?” said James looking at Sirius with a serious expression on his face.

“Aren’t you scared something might happen to your parents?”

“Mate, they’re the best damn aurors except for Moody who, face it, is a little bit crazy…you can’t seriously think that something is going to happen to them?” James laughed at the thought.

“So you never…worry?” Sirius looked oddly serious.

“Mate, you don’t need to worry” James went back to playing with his snitch and making glances at Lily who was sitting with Remus, working on their dementor essay. Sirius lay back down and started braiding his hair at a new.

What they didn’t know that in the distance, a black owl, was making its way towards two untroubled 6th years boys under the big oak tree.

Michael Lily


Lily and Michael walked side by side holding hands on the way to breakfast that following morning. None of them had said a word to each other so far and every time they looked at each other they both turned away, blushing. They hadn’t been this uncomfortable since they first got together in Lily’s 4th year.

Suddenly Michael pulled her to the side and leaned down towards her, “We need to talk”

“I know we do, I was the one who suggested it” Lily said anxiously, “and we need to get to breakfast now so let’s just go…” Lily let go Michael’s hand but he didn’t let go of hers, in fact, he held it tighter than ever.

“We need to talk now!” he said, his voice rising. Lily looked at him as if to say “how dare you talk to me like that”

“I know…” Lily looked down at her feet and tried to figure out what she was going to say to him.

“What’s wrong with us?” said Michael looking at her with a touch of sadness in his eyes.

“There’s nothing wrong with us… we just have some problems” mumbled Lily.

“So what’s the deal?” Michael said quickly after having kept quiet for a while.

“What do you mean?” Lily looked up with a look of bafflement. “You’re not actually saying it’s my fault?”

“Well you’re acting weird and I mean you’re just always in a mood” the moment the words had slipped out of his mouth he regretted it.

“I don’t need this Michael” Lily ripped her hand from his tight grip and ran from the crime scene.

“Sod it!” Michael punched the wall and then walked after Lily yelling “Lils! Come on! I didn’t mean it that way…Lils!”

James Sirius Lily


As James and Sirius were sitting in front of the fire preparing to get started on their homework.

“Why are you smiling mate?” Sirius looked curiously are James.

“Oh it’s just…”

“Lily Evans?” Sirius smiled.

“Yes?” unfortunately Lily had been sitting in the arm chair behind them day dreaming.

“AH!” Sirius was so taken aback he fell off the couch.

“What do you want?” Lily’s eyes were full of tears and her hair was messy. She had been sitting there since their last lesson, when she had broken down and started violently crying. She had been excused by Professor McGonagall and had run straight to Gryffindor tower.

“Are you alright?” asked James. He hated seeing her sad.

“Do I have to include you in everything, Potter?” Lily stood up swiftly and ran up the stairs to the girl’s dormitory.

“What’s wrong with her? She seems a bit grumpy” Sirius stood back up again and sat on the couch looking bewildered.

“I dono. I can’t see anything different” mumbled James. Even though he wasn’t showing it, he was breaking a little inside.

“For what it’s worth, I don’t think she’s worth what you’re going through” said Sirius sympathetically. Sirius had been watching James for the past weeks and he didn’t like what he had seen.

“I miss you” said Sirius.

“What are you talking about?” James looked at him, confused.

“I miss the old you” Sirius mumbled, embarrassed.

“I don’t get it, you’re not making any sense” James was trying to avoid this becoming an uncomfortable situation.

“Actually he is making sense” Remus had just come in through her portrait hole. “You have been acting really strange for over a month, and I know that it’s because of Lily”

“Its not…” but James couldn’t continue. He knew they wouldn’t believe him if he said it wasn’t about her.

“Come on mate, talk to us” Remus went over to the couch and sat down next to James looking at him with sympathy.

“I…” but he was cut of by a soft knocking on the window. Outside the window stood a big black owl with a letter tied to its leg.

Lily Molly


Lily entered the girl’s dormitory where Molly was already lying on her bed reading ‘The Lord of the Rings’.

“Its so funny reading a book about magic that some random muggle wrote…tut, tut, tut, he has much to learn” Molly laughed to herself, looked up at Lily with a smile, which quickly got wiped of when she saw how Lily was looking at her.

“What’s the matter?”

“Oh Moo!” she exclaimed as she hurried over to Molly’s bed and sat down. Molly pulled her into a hug and whispered:

“We don’t have to talk about it if you don’t want to, but you should know, it’s going to get better a lot faster if you let it out in the open”

“Moo… I’m a horrible, horrible person” Lily sighed as she pulled out of the hug and wiped her eyes.

“Don’t ever say that!” Molly looked at Lily with obvious disappointment in her eyes. “Never, ever say that again” she said as she grabbed a tissue from the tissue box on her nightstand and started wiping off the make up that had run down her cheek.

“I’m serious, I literally hurt people. On the first day of school I broke your nose and scratched you so deep that you started bleeding, the same morning I almost broke James’ foot, on Friday in the library I stood up so quickly, without knowing Professor Slughorn was standing behind me, that I knocked him over and he ended up dropping all the potions he had been carrying at the time, and yesterday I accidentally dropped my book and, unfortunately, Charles Boby was just walking past and he tripped on them and fell down the stairs. I even hurt people emotionally.” Lily was talking so fast, Molly had to concentrate with all her might to understand her. “This morning when I had the one chance to talk to Michael I ran off leaving him there with a broken heart, and every day for the past 5 years and 31 days I’ve tortured James, I’ve teased him, I’ve made him believe I hate him, I’ve hurt him in most ways possible when really all I wanted was to tell him I’ve loved him since the first time I saw him” Lily immediately regretted what she’d said. Molly looked at her confused but in a tenth of a second the corners of her mouth bent upwards and a smile spread across her face that was bigger than anything Lily had ever seen.
