anonymous asked:

What if James thought he was doodling on a scrap piece of paper and not the exam itself until a day later when he realizes and he's like OH MY GOD THE MINISTRY KNOWS I FANCY EVANS

“Merlin Prongs, calm down,” grumbles Sirius, trying to get him to shut up so that he could read his magazine in peace. Meanwhile James looks to be two seconds from tearing out his hair, wearing a hole in the floor with his pacing.

Calm down?” he says shrilly, voice cracking, “How do you expect me to calm down when I basically wrote ‘Mrs Lily Potter’ across my OWL papers?”

“I thought you’d be taking her name.”


With an overly dramatic huff, Sirius throws his magazine off to the side, swinging his feet over the edge of the bed. Taking him by the shoulders he says, “Would you relax; you’re acting like it’s some huge shock for people to know that you fancy Evans.”

“Because it is,” James insists, slumping forward. “No one was supposed to know until I made a move.”

Sirius just stares at him for a moment, trying to discern whether or not he was joking. Finally, he says, “Mate, I don’t think there’s anyone out there who doesn’t know that you’re halfway in love with Lily Evans. Babies probably know and they don’t even have object permanence.”

He pouts sullenly, crossing his arms. “Evans doesn’t know.”

“You literally just asked her out in front of the whole school,” he tells him, eyebrows rising higher. “Seriously. Like half an ago. Snivellous called her that wretched word and she’s probably coming up with ways to chop off your balls and feed it to the giant squid. Have you been confounded?”

James suddenly goes very quiet and very pale, his eyes widening comically behind his glasses. He stumbles backward into Peter’s bed, wiping a hand down his face and knocking his glasses askew.

“Oh Merlin,” he whimpers, his voice barely above a whisper, “I just asked out Lily Evans.”

Sirius just groans, flopping back onto his bed and seriously contemplating sending a strong silencio his best mate’s way.

Starbucks… Such an interesting experience. […] It’s weird, I think what happened was, because of traveling so much, I would always- Maybe that is the good thing about it. Sometimes it’s nice to see something you recognize in a very obscure, different place. And you go, ‘Oh, right, I know that! At least I know that.’ That’s why I go there all the time. Iced coffee.

working @ starbucks, here are some things i experienced:

  • a girl dumped her cheating boyfriend by ordering a hazelnut frappe and asking me to write “cheating jerk” and i asked my manager if i could say that and she told me to go ahead - an argument broke out after that and then the girl pulled out the receipts and then called the other girl on skype and basically i and all my co-workers experienced something truly iconic
  • got yelled at by a customer once for being unable to make a drink from the “secret menu” because we were low on supplies, dude asked for the manager only to be told the same thing i said
  • without fail for the last three weeks a dude would show up in full-blown naruto cosplay, orders in THE VOICE, strikes a pose, and asks me to write “naruto” on the cup every time - they’re so serious about, but it’s funny so there are literally no complaints (we get excited when it happens)
  • coffee dates between an elderly couple every friday @ 1pm without fail - it melts my heart because they’ll come in and order and he’ll pull out her seat for her and get the drinks and then they spend about half an hour talk while holding hands over the table
  • sometimes, if im lucky (meaning im scheduled to work), this kid would show up and play their guitar - no one ever complains so  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  • i once had a little girl give me a sticker because her mom told her i knew how to make her drink so well which made her happy and so the little girl wanted to pay me back (i still have the sticker)
