(( OOC: Lily played by: @potterdeer ))

Remus: *rolls eyes* It doesn’t have to be Christmas to have a party. *awkward pause* … But in all seriousness Lily… 

Lily: Well… *turns to James* 

Lily: And… er…I’m glad you’re sitting down. *pauses, fidgeting nervously*  … Mind handing me your wand?

Sirius: … Well that’s… interesting?

Lily: Thank you… *takes a deep breath* … James… 

James: *stutters* Oh… oh my god! 

Lily: Well… Yes… But- Merlin, how do I say this?

New Scarf, New Life

Andromeda fiddles with her scarf, waiting for her mother, Druella Black, to greet her at the door.

Druella: Your sisters got here ages ago.

Andromeda, mumbling: Missed you too.

Druella ignores her side comment, filling her in on what still needs to be done for the family dinner they would be hosting. Andromeda agrees thoughtlessly.

Druella: Whatever happened to your Slytherin one?

Andromeda panics, realizing it’s now or never.

Andromeda: Besides, I don’t exactly agree with what other people who wear the same scarf do. I’m NOT a Death Eater. I won’t wear my Slytherin scarf as a flag to scorn Muggles and Muggleborns.

Druella: Just because you’re not a Death Eater doesn’t mean get to renounce your house! Or your heritage for that matter. What’s gotten into you?

Druella: Can you imagine?

Andromeda: *hesitant* This scarf was given to me by Ted Tonks. A muggleborn and my boyfriend.

Druella: You shame these halls.

Andromeda: But-

Druella: You heard me!

This is gonna be my black history month recognizinition thread. I'll try to add someone/something new everyday for the month.

Runaway: Part 6

(( OOC: “The Mom-Off” ( a collaborative storyline with @wolfstar-puppylove )

Regulus played by: @siriusly-not-over-remus​ ))

*Sirius and the Potter’s wait for the train on Platform 9 ¾*

Sirius: Sorry… 

Sirius: I’m not-

James: You are.

James: It’s okay to be scared. 

Sirius: *glances around nervously* 

Sirius: *freezes as Walburga appears, Regulus trailing behind her* 

Sirius: *breaks eye contact, trembling* Shit… 

James: Shit…  

Walburga: *Whispers something to Regulus, casting dark looks at Sirius*

Regulus: *face slowly falls* 

Regulus: Of course… 

Regulus: *takes a deep, shuddering breath and begins walking down the platform towards Sirius* 

Sirius: *watches as Regulus gets closer, his younger brother’s eyes focused straight ahead* 

Sirius: *desperate* C’mon Reg… 

Regulus: *ignores Sirius and continues walking, picking up his pace* *disappears into the crowd* 

James: *grips Sirius as he sways, overwhelmed* *Turns as his mother approaches* 

Euphemia: *reaches out to Sirius as well* 

Euphemia: How nice to see you… Mrs. Black. 

Euphemia: Speaking of which, I sent you an owl concerning Sirius’s belongings.

Walburga: And I sent you one back… I believe.

Walburga: *a menacing smile stretches slowly across her face*

Walburga: *leans forward, her voice dangerous* But I do believe-

Euphemia: I’d really appreciate it if you’d deliver… everything… on the list. 

Euphemia: And how you “discipline” your son is also of particular concern to the ministry, Walburga. Your brand of discipline is called unforgivable for a reason. 

Euphemia: When can I expect Sirius’s things?

James: *whistles* 

James: You are bloody brilliant. 

Sirius: Would you take this?

Euphemia: Of course dear. 

Sirius: Thank you, Mrs. Potter. 

Euphemia: *smiles* Have a wonderful year sweetheart. I’ll see you at home. 

Euphemia: *Beams*

All I Want For Christmas

(OOC: Happy holidays to everyone!! This is my first thread wooooo! BIG THANKS TO @queer–pansy FOR BEING SUCH AN AWESOME SIRI LIKE 10/10 I hope you guys enjoyyyy I have some more stuff planned soon mwhahahah)  

No More Nightmares Sachet
  • Black Candle
  • Black or pink salt
  • Black thread
  • Paper
  • Rosemary
  • Thyme
  • Iron
  • Salt water

I like using sigils, so I made a sigil that reads ‘I do not have nightmares’. Burn it using the black candle. Add ashes to your sachet as well as your salt, rosemary, and thyme. Place the piece of iron (like a nail) right on in there. Bless with salt water for some extra protection. Tie up the sachet with your thread.

~Band aids for werewolves~

Remus is sitting on his bed, checking his wounds after full moon and aching in pain as he touches his face.

Sirius walks to the dorm and sees Remus breathing heavily on his bed. Remus sighs as he sees worried Sirius coming towards him.

Sirius: Moony, are you okay? Do you need anything?

Sirius: Are you sure? You don’t look very good if I’m honest. Those wounds are pretty deep.

Sirius: Chocolate doesn’t cure everything, Moony.

Sirius: That’s bullshit. I can see you’re hurting. Here, take a band aid.

Sirius believes that a single band aid can cure pretty much everything. That’s why he always carries a couple of them with him.

Remus: …

Sirius: Better?

Remus: I guess…

Sirius: I’m still not sure if I can leave you here like this. Remus, are you sure that you’ll be okay?

Remus: Can you stop being my mom and go to your classes?

Sirius: Okay, I’ll go then. But I’ll come back later.

Remus: Bye…

Remus smiles as he realizes that Sirius was right. A single band aid can in fact make him feel a lot better, at least if it’s given by a very dear friend.

((OOC: It took me ages to get this thread done but it’s now finally done. I’m actually really happy about how it turned out.))
