I know that your probably really busy and I'm sorry for being an annoyance but I really love ur blog and your fics. Also if it's not too much of a bother could you write a fic where Alice kicks lily Marlene and someone else out of the dormitory early in the morning to get ready for her date with frank and so the girls are left outside of the dormitory in just their pjs and of course lily is wearing an oversized t shirt and knickers and the marauders see them. Written in james pov bc he is a dork
NO STOP YOU’RE NOT AN ANNOYANCE. I hope this is reasonable oops.
a continuation of this
Alice sat at the mirror, straight-backed. Rubbing her ruby lips together for the thousandth time, she tried out a nervous smile. Dorcas stood behind her, deftly pinning her curls into place. She held out her hand silently as Alice obediently passed another clip. Mary was sprawled on her bed, her pale face reddening as she tipped her upper body upside-down off the edge. Lily and Marlene sat cross-legged on either side of an impressive collection of sugar quills.
“Hagrid’s not the only giant at school, if you know what I mean.”
Lily nodded grudgingly, and Marlene smirked as she picked a purple one out of the pile.
“Can I have one?” Mary’s voice inquired from the other side of the bed.
“Earn it,” Marlene said with a loud smack on hers.
“Where’d you get them from, anyway?”
“Nicked it from Sirius.” Marlene shrugged.
Lily thought for a bit. “Wanna make some magic together, Alice? My wand is at the ready.”
Marlene snorted, tossing Lily a red sugar quill. Alice glared at her through the reflection in the mirror.
Mary sat up and cleared her throat. “Been using the Petrificus on me? Because you’re making me stiff.”
Alice gagged. Lily laughed. “Awful. Try again.”
“Fine. I’ve been Whomping my Willow thinking about you.”
Marlene looked at Lily, who shrugged. “Bearable.”
Mary gave Lily a shove before bursting into laughter. She sifted through the lot, settling on a green one.
Lily deepened her voice. “I must have had some Felix Felicis, because I think I’m about to get lucky.”
“That’s it.” Alice stood up abruptly. “That’s it. OUT.”
Dorcas had collapsed with laughter, gripping the back of the chair with white knuckles. Lily grinned, helping herself to three. Marlene rolled her eyes, a smirk on her face.
Alice crossed her arms. “Out.” She looked down. “You too, Doe.”
“I’m doing your hair!” She protested, pulling herself off the floor.
“You just said you finished. I can do my makeup myself.”
Mary swiped at her eye with the back of her hand, unable to contain another snort from escaping her. “We’re just trying to make you feel better…”
With surprising force, Alice grabbed the four girls, hurling them out of the room.
“…about how Frank’s gonna SLYTHERIN TONIGHT!”
The door slammed in their faces, but not before Lily caught Alice’s escaped laughter as she turned away. She turned to Mary, handing her a quill. “You earned it.”
James recognized the high peal of laughter before it even properly registered in his mind. Lily. He’d know her anywhere.
Hearing her, a smile tugged at the corner of his lips.
“Now what?” He heard another voice ask. Marlene? Dorcas, maybe?
“She’ll be done soon enough. God, I’m freezing.” Lily.
Ducking through the open entry, the Marauders encountered a group of four girls by the stone staircase that lead up to the girls’ dorms. Dorcas sat high on the stairs, rolling her eyes. A few steps down sat Mary, bright red with laughter. Standing against the wall was Marlene, arms crossed, and…
In a Quidditch shirt.
His Quidditch shirt.
He didn’t dare look lower.
Lily noticed him looking, and her eyebrows rose. “Oh,” she said, crossing her arms. “I forgot to give this back.”
“’sfi-fine,” he mumbled, kicking himself mentally. Losing coherency was a new low for him.
Sirius frowned at the girls. “Where’d you get those sugar quills?”
“Honeydukes’.” Marlene replied smoothly. James didn’t notice Mary glance sideways at her as he stared into Lily’s green eyes.
He could get lost in those eyes. Those eyes were safe. Looking at those eyes meant they weren’t looking at other things. Like what she was wearing. Or not wearing. NoJamesfuckSTOP. He did notice her looking back at him a little weirdly, but he kept his eyes trained on her face.
But no. She was looking at him weirdly, like she was expecting him to say something. He should say something, since he was staring at her like a creep, which was actually kind of what he was trying not to be. Say something.
“I like-” he started.
Marlene’s arm flailed out suddenly, knocking the remaining wrapped sugar quill out of Lily’s hand. As Lily rubbed her hand and glared at Marlene, James instinctively bent to pick it up for her.
Curse mum and her Good Manners.
As he looked down, his eyes trailed the length of her endless legs, and he got that distinct, uncomfortable feeling where you want to throw up and giggle at the same time. Pale and smooth, they crossed over casually as Lily leaned back on the wall again, tugging his shirt over her thighs. Under which she was wearing knickers. Fuck.
James averted his eyes as he handed the quill back to Lily, who blushed and muttered a thanks. James let out a breath he hadn’t realized he was holding as he took a shaky step back.
Remus glanced at James, then cleared his throat loudly. “We’ve got to get on with our Potions homework.”
“We don’t have any-”
“Yes we do, Peter. We have Potions homework.”
With that, he nodded to the girls before turning to go up the boys’ stairs, with the rest of the somewhat confused Marauders following. They made it to the top of the stairs, when…
A “You’re like Skele-Gro; you’re growing me a bone.” was followed by an almighty THUMP and a muffled oof.
James looked down, and slowly closed his eyes.
He could die.
