[Scene: Hogwarts grounds, by the lake– where Messrs. R. Lupin and J. Potter sit, studying.]
[Well, trying to study.]
James: Remus, you have to help me. What in Merlin’s name started the Goblin War of 1456?
[Remus looks up]
Remus: …does NOT mean I’m going to write your essay for you.
[James groans and mutters something about disloyal werewolves. Remus ignores him. James goes back to staring blankly over the lake, until something catches his eye.]
[But Remus feels a slimy hand tug on his ankle, and then–]
[A flash of light, a bang, and a screech]
[James hoists a bedraggled Remus out of the water.]
Remus: Buggering FUCK!!!
[Messr. Potter can no longer contain himself.]
James: [smirking]So, about that History of Magic Essay… I saved you from a vicious mermaid, after all…
[Remus stares at James for approximately three seconds, and then tackles him.]
[Later, as James is wringing out his clothes, he’ll reflect that on balance, it’s probably not wise to provoke a waterlogged werewolf.]
OOC: Some scenic Marauders silliness, featuring my brother (!!!!), @iprophet. I like imagining Remus’s interactions with a variety of beings and creatures–some of whom vibe with the werewolf thing, and some of whom definitely do not. Given that merpeople chose to be classed as “beasts” instead of “beings” to avoid being grouped with “dark beings” like vampires and hags. I thought they might have a similar distaste for werewolves. Mostly, though, we just wanted to shoot something at the lake.
(aslflkankfnakf got new clips so I decided to redo some from the old video, as well as add one or two more new scenes I originally wanted in there but couldn't make it fit. Considering half the video is sad/dramatic stuff I added the USA video I did yesterday in there to help even it out otherwise it would’ve been 40% funny and 60% dramatic. :’D)
