I wrote this while sitting in jury duty with the help of @scaredofrobots and something the old women at the front desk called ‘The Incident’ where someone arrived to jury duty wasted. Of course I took their tale and spun it into a jily fic. The formatting on tumblr is weird and FANFIC is probably better to read.
“Please take a seat.” The woman at the front desk handed him a badge that said JUROR in red, “the orientation will start in two minutes.”
First of all, Sirius Black had a hard time believing that he’d been called to jury duty in the first place considering that he was best friend and confident of the Judge, James Potter. Sirius assumed that if he helped James organize his Pokemon card collection that meant he was exempt from all jury duty prospects. Unfortunately, the summons had arrived in their mailbox and James had delivered it to Sirius at the kitchen table with a conceited grin. James took to calling the summons ‘bring your best friend to work day’. Sirius was more apt to calling it 'governmental conspiracy’.
James’ smug face followed Sirius into the juror room. On the screens above there were flashes of his face, along with a short bio about him. The woman at the front desk, Cheryl, eyed Sirius’ tattoos with a frown as he left the front desk to sit down.
Sirius thumped into a chair beside a redhead wearing an exasperated grimace. She was talking on the phone rather angrily.
“This woman at the front desk told me that this could take all day so if you don’t hear from me I’ve asked the supposed murderer to murder me.”
