God Save The Queen: Part 4

(( OOC: Marlene played by @askwhathasthiscometo ))

Sirius: *rushes past Marlene at the door of the dressing room* Sorry! 

Sirius: *grins* Hey… I get ready fast. 

Sirius: … No. 

Sirius: None of your business Marlene. 

Sirius: *grins* *throws his costume on and starts putting on the rest of his makeup* 

Remus: *slips into the dressing room, unnoticed* 

Marlene: Not one that you’d wanna use on your face! Ask Lucius. 

Sirius: *grimaces*

Marlene: I hate him too, but he comes prepared. Unlike you. 

Sirius: … What… How did you-?

Sirius: Remus… Fuck… I-

Sirius: I know. I’m… sorry. 

Remus: That’s not going to cut it Black. 

Sirius: *looks strained* I… Marlene’s an old friend. I met up with her last week. *takes a deep breath* She knew I enjoyed performing, we did some theater together in high school… and… she offered me a job. 

Remus: … As a drag queen. 

Sirius: *nervously* You’ve been so stressed lately… being sick and…

Sirius: *glares* Knock it off… We’ve been… having a mildly difficult time making ends meet. 

Remus: *snorts* Diplomatic response… 

Sirius: I just figured I should start pitching in. Jesus, I’ve been leaching off of you and James since I was 16… *shrugs weakly* I just wanted to take some of the stress off. 

Sirius: I mean… Look at me.

Remus: I am looking… 

Remus: I don’t know what you were so afraid of… 

Sirius: *stutters* It’s… It’s… weird. 

Remus: Do you enjoy it?

Sirius: What?

Remus: Do you like your job?

Sirius: *shrugs, suddenly looking smug* I’m an exhibitionist with killer eyeliner-applying-skills… of course I like it. 

Sirius: … You’re kidding. 

Remus: I’m 100% Sirius. 

Sirius: … You’re an idiot. 

Sirius: You’re gonna have to pay extra for that later. Special favors don’t come cheap.

Sirius: *grins and throws on the wig* 

Sirius: You’re distracting. 

Remus: I’ll see you after the show… 


God Save The Queen: Part 2

Sirius: *races past Remus, his backpack flung over his shoulder* 

Sirius: *rushed* Out with James again! *looks back apologetically as he heads to the door* Sorry Moons, gotta run! 

*the door slams shut behind Sirius* 

Remus: … Again? *sits in silence for a moment, his fingers twitching as he grips the arm of the couch* *suddenly snaps, reaching for his phone* 

*the phone rings…. and rings… and rings…* 

Phone: … Hello?

James: … Moons?

Remus: I’ve got to get going… 

James: Let me know when you two can come over. Lily wants to have dinner with you gits before she pops a child out of her nethers and we can’t have a social life anymore. *grins* 

Remus: *laughs half-heartedly*
