Beastly

They find him alone, bruised and battered, deep within the Amazon Rainforest. They find him as the Beast, savage and ferocious, lunging at anything that moved.

Worst of all, they can’t find Raven.

Rain splattered across the windshield, forming a thick sheet of water before the windshield wipers swept it away.

Thwump, thwump.

Wizarding World: WE MUST SPEND DECADES TRYING TO COME UP WITH A POTION THAT WILL TAME THE SAVAGE BEASTS!

Wizarding World: UNTIL THEN, THEY MUST BE LOCKED UP!

Wizarding World: THERE’S NO OTHER POSSIBLE WAY!

Peter:

James: Here, Remus, take this.

Peter: *Hands Remus a vial*

Remus: What is it?

Sirius: Shrinking Solution.

- Later -

James: See? He fits in the palm of my hand which means that I can easily hold onto him. As a bonus, his teeth are too small to break the skin. 

Wizarding World: HOW INCREDIBLY SIMPLE!
