What are your marauders hc for Halloween since you already did aChristmas one?

Ho ho hoooo boy, here we go!


- So, Christmas is Lily and Remus’ Holiday …

- But Halloween?

- Now that, children, is James Potter and Sirius Black’s time to shine.

- They live for this holiday.

- They literally spend the year between Halloween’s planning their next Halloween prank.

- And their pranks are legendary.

- Even the Slytherins had to admit that.

- One year, they even managed to convince Professor McGonagall to participate in the halloween prank.

- No one knows how they managed it.

- Sirius swears it’s his charms in wooing her

- (But it didn’t go unnoticed that James and Sirius didn’t cause any trouble or get detention for a month before hand)

- They always threw a fantastic (and terrifying) Halloween Party in the Gryffindor commons

- They would even get the school ghosts involved in the party, popping out of punch bowls and scaring the ba-jeebers out of the younger years.

- All of the professors turned a blind eye to the party, expect from Flitch.

- But Dumbledore usually gives him an impossible task to complete the night they have the party.

- Normally something involving Peeves.

- If you didn’t come to the party in a costume, you didn’t come in at all.

- It was the only rule.

- And it was the party to be at, so everyone went all out.

- There was a huge debate about which holiday party was better throughout their seven years at Hogwarts.

- Christmas or Halloween?

- Remus tried to go dressed as himself one year by telling Sirius and James he was going as a werewolf.

- They marched him straight back up those stairs and transfigured some old clothes into a costume for him, and was hexed orange and green by James.

- He wasn’t best pleased with the results, but if you didn’t come in your own costume, you got stuck with the first thing that comes into Sirius’ head.

- A Pumpkin.

- He still hasn’t lived that down.

- James and Sirius did so much research into muggle customs on halloween to make sure that everyone felt included

- That’s how they found out about muggle party games like Truth or Dare, Never have I Ever, and Spin the Bottle.

- When Lily became Prefect, she demanded they make a rule that fourth years and under couldn’t participate in those games.

- People thought it was because she was a bore and weren’t very happy with the rule.

- But the truth was, a few of the younger years had come to her in private with their worries of peer pressure and didn’t want to be bullied for not playing the games.

- The only other person who knew that though was James Potter who accidentally overheard the conversation and enforced the rule immediately.

- Even Lily doesn’t know that James knew the real truth behind it.

- Sirius went all out on his costumes.

- You know those cosplayers that can just physically change themselves purely with makeup and a costume and look perfect and just are the embodiment of the character they’re playing?

- That is Sirius Black.

- The year he went as Jareth from Labyrinth?

- Remus still gets dry mouth just thinking about it.

- As do many other people at Hogwarts.

- Peter went as the same thing every single year - a mouse.

- People thought it was because he couldn’t think of anything better, but the truth was he didn’t have the money to buy a new costume each year.

- James, Sirius and Remus were very protective of Peter and his costume.

- It just wasn’t halloween without it.

- The year the full moon fell on halloween was a disaster.

- Everyone was really excited because how spooky would it be having the halloween party on a full moon?

- Remus told them just to have the party without him

- He was fine

- But Sirius would not allowed that.

- Either would James or Peter, but Sirius was the more vocal about it.

- So after discussions with Dumbledore, they planned to have the halloween party the day after so Remus could still come; even if he was a little battered and bruised.

- It would add character to his zombie costume.

- Dumbledore had told them all an elaborate tale that morning at breakfast.

- He said that Halloween was not allowed to be celebrated on the full moon because it would offend the centaurs and other creatures in the forbidden forest and they may pledge war on Hogwarts.

- Remus will always be grateful for that crazy tale, otherwise he would have missed Jareth Sirius.

- A lot of dirty secrets came to light during Never Have I Ever and Truth or Dare.

- Like Marlene Mckinnon, the girl everyone thought was wild and out there, was actually quite tame.

- Quiet little Mary however … whoosh.

- Its always the quiet ones that surprise you.

- Lily was the one who chose Dare every single round of Truth or Dare.

- She didn’t care what the dare was, she was game.

- Some people always got Lily wrong and thought she was a stick in the mud

- But the real Lily Evans?

- That girl could out marauder the marauders.

- Don’t even get Sirius started on the year that she pulled a better halloween prank than him and James back in third year.

- He calls it ‘The Dark Times’

- James calls it the day he fell in love with Lily Evans.


I seriously need to stop. I will go on all night. Just, these nerds.
