Hi! Can you do a imagine during the Marauders era where the reader and the Marauders are playing Never Have I Ever? Thank you! - requested by anon
Haha this was a good request. It was really fun to write. Hope you like it! :)
It was almost two o’clock on a Wednesday morning, and I was still awake working on my Transfiguration homework. It was so late that I was one of the last people in the common room. The only others still awake were four boys in my grade - best friends and notorious Gryffindors. James Potter, Sirius Black, Remus Lupin, and Peter Pettigrew were usually up to something, but tonight I was too tired to even care what it was.
I was just about to give up and head up to my room to get some sleep when Sirius sat down in a chair next to me and said, “Never have I ever done homework until two in the morning.”
Remus, the nicest and most responsible of the bunch, followed him over. “Come on, Sirius, can’t you see y/n’s doing homework? Leave her alone!”
James Potter laughed from the other side of the room. “It’s not like she was getting anything done. No one gets anything done after one anyways.”
Sirius winked at me and said, “Don’t you know how to play? You have to put a finger down.”
I rolled my eyes and almost walked back up to the room, until I thought that if I let Sirius win, he was going to gloat for the rest of our time at Hogwarts. I had learned that the hard way when he had challenged to wizard chess.
Fine, I thought as I held up nine fingers. “Never have I ever been a guy.”
“Hey, that’s no fair!” protested James, who was still lounging on a couch on the other side of the common room. “Never have I ever been a girl!”
Eight fingers. Man.
But I didn’t have to worry too much about losing, because Peter chimed in with a “Never have I ever been on the quidditch team!”
“Never have I ever had a crush on Lily Evans!” smirked Remus. I laughed out loud. I had never heard Remus say something so devious.
Sirius added, “Never have I ever been a seeker!”
It was my turn, and I decided to continue the trend of targeting James. Before too long, he was out, because he had been out of the country, fallen asleep in class, failed a class, had a girlfriend, had a broomstick, and stayed up all night.
I almost felt bad that he was out so quickly, but it was actually pretty funny.
After James was out, I had six fingers up, Sirius had four, and Remus and Peter had seven. Whatever, I thought, as long as I beat Sirius.
”Never have I ever started a game of ‘Never Have I Ever’ at two in the morning,” I said, looking directly at Sirius. He stuck his tongue out at me, and put another finger down.
“Never have I ever kissed three different girls in one day,” said Remus, also looking at Sirius.
“No fair! You guys are ganging up on me!”
“Never have I ever been a prefect.” said Peter. Remus frowned and put a finger down.
“Never have I ever been a pretty girl,” Sirius said with a wink at me. I left my finger up.
“Hey! She didn’t put a finger down!” he protested.
I rolled my eyes. “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.”
“I think you’re pretty!” said Sirius. “Let’s take a vote. If we all agree you’re pretty, you have to put a finger down. I vote yes.”
“I vote yes,” shouted James, who still hadn’t moved from the couch.
“Me too,” said Peter quietly.
Remus blushed. “I vote yes.”
I pretended to scowl at them like I was mad about being declared a ‘pretty girl,’ but of course I was flattered.
In the end, Sirius got out, and then I lost, and then Remus, so finally Peter won. But it really didn’t matter. All I could think about was how Sirius Black, James Potter, Remus Lupin, and Peter Pettigrew had agreed that I was pretty, and I couldn’t stop smiling.
I was even smiling the next day as I told Professor McGonagall that I hadn’t finished the homework.
