sorry it took so long <3 <3

It’s kind of surreal being friends with Lily Evans.

For one, James never really thought it would actually happen. Their first meeting ended terribly, with Lily throwing a bottle of water at him and calling him an arrogant toerag which. Well, he guesses he kind of deserved it, simultaneously hitting on her and insulting her in one go.

And to be honest, he didn’t even expect to get as far as friendship with her. He was content to stay in the ‘mostly irritating but sometimes amusing’ category because at least he got to see her, and then whine about how pretty her hair is and have you seen her eyes they’re amazing to Sirius over drinks.

But then they did become friends.

Very, very, close friends.

James isn’t sure if he hates it or loves it. Probably some combination of the both.

Lily lives with her sister, but the two of them are always having some sort of falling out, so she’s always coming over to his and Sirius’ flat, so much so that she has her own keys and her hard lemonade has replaced the coconut water his best mate keeps in the fridge.

They’re very close friends in the sense that she keeps her toiletries in his bathroom because he has the shower with better water pressure, not to mention the actual tub. Not mention that half his closet is filled with her clothes and the first time he found her knickers in the laundry basket (black with a polka dot print and lace trimming which he really did not need to know) James turned bright red and almost keeled over right then and there. It provided fuel for wisecracks for the next week.

Close friends in the sense that her official spot is next to him during group outings, that she’s liable to fall asleep curled into him during movie nights, that she steals his hoodies and makes him race against her in Mario Kart, keeping up a steady stream of smack talk and roughly shoving her shoulder into his while she laughs.

It’s the best.

It’s also the worst.

And James is undeniably, 100% fucked.
