Ch. # Chapter Title Word Count Reviews
1 The Mistake

The girl matched his grin and took a step closer, her argument with the suit of armor long forgotten. Black was supposed to be one of the best looking blokes in school, but close up Melora decided he didn’t look so great.

2 The Aftermath

After all, they had been there when he’d drowned his sorrows in firewhiskey and knew that he had sworn off all women. Including…bloody hell, Sirius mentally groaned, he couldn’t think of her name.
Oh sweet Merlin, she was getting closer. She was going to talk to him and he couldn’t even remember her name.

3 The Options

Melora was fairly sure she had never felt so uncomfortable in her life.

Apparently, Madame Moffat hadn’t thought teenagers at Hogwarts even knew about sex, much less were having it.

4 The Friends

Beatrice’s eyes widened and she stared at just above Melora’s head, but the girl hardly noticed. “If he wants to talk to me, he will. It’s not as if I can just waltz up to Black and tell him I really do care about what he thinks and…why are you pointing, oh Merlin he’s behind me, isn’t he?”

5 The Ex

Like most of Melora’s recent problems, it was entirely Stephen Walters’s fault. Also Eleanor Harvey’s, but honestly, Melora couldn’t bring herself to hate her for pure idiocy. How in the world was she even in Ravenclaw?

6 The Rumors

“I do hope this will teach you a lesson about attacking another student in the hall Mister Black.”

Sirius looked from the towering stack of dirty cauldrons to his Transfiguration professor and Head of House, Minerva McGonagall, and back again. “Looking doubtful by the minute Minnie.”

7 The Tests

Healer Jacoby was a plump woman with red cheeks and a perpetual smile. Just the sort of woman Melora thought should be dealing with babies, so she trusted her and laid her head back.

1,084 8
8 The Parents

Sirius allowed the brief idea of being expelled pass through his mind. No, if he hadn’t been expelled for nearly killing a student, he doubted he would be expelled for getting a fellow student pregnant.

965 8
9 The Riddle

“Right now it’s just a baby. No different from some passing baby on the street. But if I know the gender, I’m going to start thinking of names, and then it won’t just be some baby, it’ll be George or Annie and it’ll be personal….” She trailed off, “And then I won’t be able to give it away.”

Sirius thought about this for a moment, “I like Annie, but George sounds like an old person’s name.”

10 The Morning Sickness

Lily, for her credit, did not run away. She leaned Melora against the wall and quickly fixed her hair with a flick of her wand. She then set about getting toilet paper for Melora to dab her eyes and running nose with. Later, Melora decided Lily Evans would be the first one she was turning to in a crisis.

11 The Holidays

Dear Melora,

I know we agreed on no gifts, but James thinks when girls say that, it’s a test and if I didn’t get you something, I was going to fail it. I know that’s a load, but James can be a right prick when you don’t listen to him and Lily’s over the Potters’ for the holidays and he got her to agree with him that I should get you a gift and she’s even worse than James when you don’t listen to her.

12 The Heartburn

Unfortunately, the stress of studying caught up to Melora quickly. She was racing to Charms from the lunch, where she had grabbed a quick bite, when it hit her. A painful burning sensation around her heart stopped Melora on a dime, and she doubled over in pain.

1,403 5
13 The Library

Mary hadn’t been lying when she said she loved babies. She seemed to know everything there was to know about children and pregnancy. Lily said Mary was hoping to become Healer, but Melora thought the Gryffindor girl would make a perfect mother.

1,743 8
14 The Fight

“Relax Melly,” Melora winced again, “I just wanted to tell you look quite pretty today.” Melora glanced at him out of the corner of her eye curiously. 

“In fact,” Stephen continued, “You’re positively glowing.”

Melora stopped short and glared at him. “Leave me alone Stephen, you’re going to make me late for class.”

15 The Hogsmeade Trip- Part I

It was Hogsmeade weekend and the two girls had plans with Mary and Lily to go shopping. They were already late as it was, since Melora had waited for the majority of her house to leave before sneaking Bea in and getting ready.

16 The Hogsmeade Trip- Part II

“Can’t be easy carrying the extra weight,” Sirius mused as he held the door open for her when they reached Hogwarts. 

“What’s that supposed to mean?” Melora glared. 

Sirius’ arms flew up in defense. “I just mean, well you’re pregnant!” 

955 6
17 The Perfect Couple

The woman laughed, “Oh no, I’ve got three little boys at home.”

Melora smiled, “I can see why you would want a girl.”

She laughed again and offered a hand, “I’m Molly Weasley.”

Melora shook it, “Melora Jones.”

18 The Kiss

 “The whole school knows what Sirius did to Nott,” Bea was grinning now, “Sirius must be the only one in all of Hogwarts who knows how to punch so hard Madame Moffat can’t heal the bruise.”

1,017 4
19 The Confrontation

 It was amazing how quickly some people could ruin a happy moment, Melora mused.

1,135 4
20 The Wrights

The blonde took another deep breath, no reason to be nervous. Only the future of her child at stake here, no need to worry.

1,375 2
21 The Secret

 Melora scowled and gave James a hard whack on the arm. “Oi, that’s my best friend you’re talking about,” she said, hitting him again for good measure.

James backed away and grabbed his arm. “Ow,” he hissed, “Merlin Melora why do you always have to result to violence?”

1,280 3
22 The Full Moon

 After what seemed like an eternity, they reached the Hospital Wing. Peter was sitting asleep on the ground outside, head lolled to the side, snoring slightly. Melora giggled as Lily reached down and shook his shoulder.

Peter jumped a little, mumbling something about cheese and looked up blearily.

23 The Beginning of the End

“It’s true though,” Dorcas argued, “Everyone knows what house most of the Death Eaters come from, and it isn’t Ravenclaw. Every other day I catch Mulciber or Avery hexing some innocent muggleborn first year,” she adjusted her prefect badge, “Wish I could do more than just take points.”

1,162 4
24 The Fourth Day

 “No,” Mary rolled her eyes, “But you have to admit, you’re not the most tactful person.”

“I’ve got plenty of tact,” Sirius argued, looking at Peter and Remus for support. Remus shook his head and Peter shrugged helplessly.

1,622 6
25 The Idea

 “What’s wrong with you?” she huffed as they headed past the Great Hall up the stairs.

“Nothing,” he insisted, “I’m fine.”

“You’re obviously not,” Melora scoffed, “You haven’t been this quiet since I told you I was pregnant and you fainted.”

1,174 6
26 The Game

 “I was studying,” Melora replied, waving her textbook as the three left the kitchens and headed up to their common rooms, “You do know NEWTs are in a month, right?”

“I know,” Sirius said quizzically, “So why are you studying now?”

1,455 3
27 The Meeting

It was a fairly brilliant spring day. Winter had lasted well into March and most of April had been rainy, but since May had come, the sun had been shining bright and the Hogwarts grounds were proof of it. The trees were bright green, patches of flowers had sprung up, and the even the Black Lake seemed to glisten. The sun was just setting as Sirius and Melora made their way outside, coloring the sky a combination of orange, red, pink and purple.

2,375 5
28 The Exams

An arm slithered around her waist, and Melora turned to smirk up at Sirius. “How’d you do?” she asked.

“Probably better than you,” he gloated.

1,358 9
29 The Baby

"Tell me you're not planning on flirting with my Healer while I have a baby," Melora groaned.

"Not when you have the baby," Bea said defensively, "But maybe after."

2,127 7
30 The Summer

Still, she looked nice in her professional robes with her hair pulled neatly back and she took a deep breath, reminding herself no one at the Prophet was going to magically be able to tell she'd just had a baby.

You know, unless they were a legilimens.

31 The Holidays (Again)

Emma seemed to be enjoying Diagon Alley (as much as an eight-month old could). It was just before Valentine’s Day, and many of the shops were decorated with hearts and bewitched cupids flying in the windows. Whenever they stopped close enough to one for Emma to notice it, she tried desperately to reach up out of her seat for it.

32 The Sleepover and the Party

 “I can do this,” he told himself, taking a deep breathe; “I became an illegal animagus at age fifteen. I’ve fought Death Eaters and faced Voldemort himself. I’ve survived detention with Minerva McGonagall. I can do this.”

2,934 2
33 The Wedding

Melora patted his cheek lightly. “You didn’t seem to mind so much when you were dancing with Alice. Should I be worried?”

“Of course not,” Sirius grinned, “Obviously if I cheat it’s going to be with James.”

2,581 4
34 The Secret Keeper

“Sorry, I’m still a little confused,” Sirius shook his head, “There’s a prophecy about Harry?"

“It’s possible it’s about Harry,” Dumbledore nodded, “It could also be referring to Frank and Alice Longbottom’s son. But we believe Voldemort thinks it is in regards to Harry.”

Divination was one of Sirius’s favorite subjects and it was slowly making its way lower on his list.


2,678 2
35 The Traitor

"She's grown quite a lot since I've last seen her," Albus Dumbledore commented from in the fire.

Melora shrugged. "Children do that."

2,214 2
36 The End

Although Melora and her daughter Emily "Emma" Jones could pass for sisters, with the same dirty blonde hair, round face and button noses, some days Melora had doubts she had taken the right baby home from St. Mungo's.
