Sirius Molly Dumbledore Lily Remus James


After Dumbledore’s sudden outburst the foursome kept unusually quiet, there was barely even the sound of them breathing to be heard. Where Dumbledore was leading them they had no clue, but they were too afraid to ask.

“Ah…soon there” said Dumbledore softly as they turned a corner and found themselves facing the door leading to the hospital wing. Molly looked a Lily, a touch of terror in her expression. Lily’s eyes were glittery with tears and Remus was looking at the door, scared.

Dumbledore opened the room and they all walked in to find a still unconscious James lying on one of the beds.

“Is he?” stuttered Sirius as he walked towards the bed.

“Dead? Oh no, not quite, but still in a deep sleep” said Dumbledore as he walked over to Madam Pomfrey and mumbled something to her which the foursome couldn’t hear. “You were to come here to, and I rather regret saying this…to say your last goodbyes” said Dumbledore calmly. At these words Lily sprung forward from her position at the back and ran towards James.

“I won’t let you!” she started to shake James, “Wake up James! Wake up! We need you here! We…need…you…” she couldn’t get much more out of her because she had started to cry. She stopped shaking him and lay her head down on his chest and hugged him gently. “I won’t let you die” she whispered.

“I’m afraid –” Dumbledore said.

“Don’t say it!” yelled Sirius. He walked towards Dumbledore with strong, manly steps as if he was trying to intimidate him, but being the most powerful wizard in the world, Dumbledore was hard to intimidate.

“Sirius…we must, there is nothing else to be done” said Dumbledore in that usual calm voice of his.

“We…we can wait! There’s no need for this now! We can wait!” Sirius ran over to James’ bed where Lily was still crying and stood strong, “We can wait!”

“It’s been too long” said Dumbledore.

“I won’t let you kill him! You can’t kill one of your own students!” yelled Sirius.

“I am in no manner killing -” roared Dumbledore but was interrupted by a silent ‘shh” from James’ bed. Lily had stood up from her position and was looking at James.

“He – He – He moved” she stuttered. Dumbledore and Madam Pomfrey rushed to the bed and pushed Lily and Sirius out of the way. “He moved!” she yelled trying to push her way though.

“Lily I think -” but Lily wouldn’t listen to Remus
“He’s not asleep! He moved! He – He – Can you hear me?” Lily ran around the bed to the other side where Madam Pomfrey was standing and shoved her out of the way. Lily looked at James, terrified. She grabbed his left hand and kissed it. A tear fell from her cheek and landed on his and started to slowly sliding down his cheek. At that moment James’ eyes slowly opened. A smile of shock spread across Lily’s face and she was so caught in the moment that she leaned down and kissed James on the lips. She pulled away after a few seconds, realizing that he and she weren’t together and took a few steps back, furiously blushing.

“Wow…” said James hoarsely as he brought his left hand up to his lips. Sirius had been standing motionless for the past minute and suddenly came back to life, running towards James and hugging him.

“I think we should leave him to rest” said Madam Pomfrey harshly but no one paid any attention to her. Remus walked forward to the bed and tried to pull Sirius away from James but it took much effort. After having succeeded he hugged James and smiled.

“How are you mate?” he asked casually.

“Not bad…Feels like I’ve been asleep for hours” James said as he yawned. Molly walked up to James and ruffled his hair, like he always did.

“Oh James, what would we do without you” she said.

“Why is everyone acting like I’ve been bloody brought back from the dead?” exclaimed James with a look of confusion upon his pale face.

“You might as well have been” Remus said, laughing. James turned his gaze to Lily who was still standing in the back, now furiously biting her nails.

“You –” James started but was cut off by Lily who was running towards him with bloodshot eyes. She hugged him as tightly as she could and wouldn’t let go. James placed his arms around her as she cried against his chest. “Could someone tell me what the bloody hell is going on?” At this everyone started laughing and Lily pulled away from the hug, wiping tears off her cheek.

“Out now! There are far too many people in this room and look at the time!” exclaimed Madam Pomfrey as she pushed all of the students of the hospital wing, Lily particularly hard.

Peter Carl Stanley Marauders Molly Lily


“He’s not dead?” whispered Carl as Peter looked down at his shoes, ashamed, as if he was the one who had done wrong. Peter nodded softly and started to bit his nails.

“How – Bloody hell” Carl leaned back on his chair and sighed. They were currently in DADA class and Peter had intentionally sat behind Carl at the back so that they could talk undisturbed.

“Mr. Down if there is anything you would like to share with the class, I think you should speak louder” said a nervous looking Professor Cleavry who was clearly trying to get over his fear of students by acting all angry.

“I was just talking about Potter” said Carl loudly looking behind him at James and gave him a cold sneer.

“Oh yes, well” Cleavry pushed up his glasses which had fallen down to the tip of his nose, “Mr. Potter is fine so there will be no need for chatter”

“Like that’s what I was worried about” whispered Carl as he turned to Professor Cleavry and smiled, very unnaturally.

“He’s a little skunk that one” hissed Sirius to James.

“Tell me about it” whispered James back, but this time Sirius knew it was a figure of speech and smiled at himself for being so smart.

“What are you grinning at?” James was looking at Sirius with an odd expression on his face.

“Myself” answered Sirius.

“Wha – You – bloody hell” James went back to staring at the back of Lily’s head.

“You know every time I look at the back of the room I see James staring at you” whispered Molly to Lily who couldn’t resist but smile.

“He is?” Lily whispered back. She was furiously blushing at the fact that James found her so irresistible. She quickly wiped the smile of her face, “I can’t blush! I’m still with Michael!” she said a bit too loudly.

“Shh!” Molly hushed her, “The only thing you’ve got to do there is break up”

“I can’t do that! It’s too horrible” Lily looked down at her desk and started drumming her fingernails against the desk.

“It would be even worse if you kept going out with him without even liking him”

“I suppose so” Lily stole a glance at James and saw that he was completely hypnotized by her.

James Lily Sirius Remus Molly


Lily walked into the common room very lazily and dropped down on the couch. She closed her eyes, hoping she could get a few minutes rest before she had to start her homework. When she opened her eyes she let out a very high-pitched scream. James had been standing right in front of her staring at her with those darling eyes of his.

“What are you doing?” Lily said, still slightly shaken by the sudden appearance of James. She sat up straight and tried to look as organized and proper as possible and started to straighten out her skirt. James was still standing in front of her, desperately trying to catch her glance, which she wouldn’t give him. “Don’t look at me like that” she said quietly.

“What?” James moved closer but at that moment Lily stood up from her seat and walked over to the other side of the room. “Is that really necessary?” he smiled at her and gestured for her to come towards him. She took two tiny steps towards James, but never once looked at him.

“A little more” he was really touched by how shy she was around him now. “A little more” he repeated several times before she took a few more steps towards him, now looking up at him and meeting his brilliant hazel eyes. She had always loved his eyes most of all and being this close made her stomach tingle. “A little more”

They were standing inches from one another, the tips of their noses almost touching, their eyes digging into the others. Her eyes looked unsure but if the truth was to be told, she had never felt so sure in her life. I want him.

“Remus!” Lily quickly took a step away from James and turned her head towards the portrait hole, “Bloody hell!” Sirius was standing there smiling very broadly and giving the thumbs up to James. James was blushing as he walked over to Sirius and pulled him out the portrait hole but before he could exit Molly and Remus had arrived.

“What?” Remus looked confused. Molly seemed to have realized what was going on.

“Are you?” she placed her hands together and stared at Lily who furiously shook her head. James looked broken but at the same time mad.

“What are you doing?” he whispered to Sirius.

“I came here to find you! It’s full moon!” Sirius raised his eyebrows.

“It’s full moon!” James exclaimed as he ran out of the room, Remus and Sirius following close behind him.

“What was that all about?” Lily shrugged at the question.

“Lets find out”

Molly Lily


Molly and Lily followed the fading sounds of footsteps all the way to the front doors which led to the Hogwarts grounds. Lily gave Molly a questioning look and Molly replied with a nod. They carefully opened the doors, trying their hardest not to make too much noise in case Filch would come. They came out successfully but the Marauders were nowhere in sight.

“Where are they?” Lily looked around the grounds.

“No clue” answered Molly as she started to walk down the path which led to the lake.

“Maybe we should go back inside. It’s so cold” Lily stroked her shoulders as she walked after Molly.

“Don’t be such a bloody wuss” said Molly as she continued walking. As they made their way down, the moon was shining its way through the trees and made the lake look as a beautiful, magnificent, huge silver coat. A howl was heard in the distance. They reached the lake, no sooner than four minutes later. Looking around they saw no sign of the Marauders.

“Maybe they didn’t come here” said Lily. She was trying to find any reason for them to return. Yet another howl was heard and Lily turned around to face the forbidden forest. “This is scaring me”

“Oh stop it. There’s nothing dangerous here unless we go into the forbidden forest” groaned Molly as she started to walk towards the forest. “You don’t think they went in there do you?”

“They’re not that stupid” laughed Lily, but she immediately stopped when she heard the familiar high-pitched scream of her best friend. Turning around she found Molly standing no less than four meters away from an almost full grown werewolf.
