A Morning with the Marauders"POTTER, GET OUT OF BED OR I'LL DRAG YOU OUT BY YOUR STUPID HAIR!"
Sirius was not a morning person.
"TOUCH MY HAIR AND I'LL SEND YOU TO THE GREAT HALL WITH YOUR TAIL BETWEEN YOUR LEGS!"
James loved mornings. As long as they were spent in bed, of course.
"COME ON THEN, YOU SPECCY GIT, HAVE A GO!"
"GLADLY, IF I WEREN'T AT RISK OF FLEAS!"
"I'LL SHOVE YOUR BLOODY ANTLERS UP YOUR ARSE!"
Remus and Peter were once impartial, but had acquired particular disdain for mornings after not experiencing a quiet one in six years.
"Sirius, put your wand down, you've already got a week of detentions from Saturday." Remus warned as he adjusted his tie.
Sirius begrudgingly replaced his wand in his pocket, grinning nostalgically at memories of his most recent drunken escapade.
"James, he's right," Remus continued with his self assigned mediating position, "We're already late for breakfast."
"It's Monday," James's voice was muffled from the blanket he'd pulled over his head, "The teachers expect me to be la

Instead, Sirius was stuck in the monochrome hospital waiting room, sitting on a hard chair and drinking bitter coffee from a styrofoam cup, listening to the wails of pregnant women, the woes of expectant fathers and whines of newborn children. He made no attempt to hide his distaste, punctuating every second breath with an impatient huff or mumble.
"Padfoot!" Remus hissed sharply in reprimand as Sirius' moans grew too loud and drew attention.
Sirius sighed and straightened up in the horrid, cold chair, as he found that he'd been slowly sinking lower with every second. He rubbed his eyes and slumped forward, resting his elbow on his knee and his chin on his hand. Remus chuckled quietly to

"Go hunt." Sirius mumbled, his words distorted by the hand that held his chin up.
"Fish, Sirius," Remus reminded him.
Sirius rolled his eyes, "Fine, please yourself. Fish, hunt, I don't care."
Remus sighed and picked a card from the pile.
"It makes more sense for you to 'go hunt', though. I mean, you're hunting for a matching card, right?" Sirius snapped suddenly.
"Let it go, Padfoot." Remus seethed, closing his eyes and taking a deep breath.
There was a long pause.
"It's your turn, Prongs." Sirius reminded him.
James looked down at the pair on the floor from his bed and frowned, "I didn't know I was playing."
Remus opened his mouth to voice his confusion but he was interrupted by a long, loud moan.
"I'm bored!" Sirius groaned, throwing down his cards and rolling over onto his back.
"You did have a six!" Remus huffed.
Sirius cocked an eyebrow, "I know."

Sirius waited silently underneath the invisibility cloak. Madam Pomfrey had taken Remus to the Shrieking Shack almost twenty minutes ago. What could be taking the matron so long?
It was going to be just him and Moony that night. Peter was mostly likely down in the Kitchens filling himself with chocolates after being rejected by the Ravenclaw bird. And James was spending the evening with
Just as Sirius was about to hurry back to Gryffindor tower to retrieve the Map, he saw the branches on the Whomping Willow freeze and then Pomfrey hurried back to the Great Hall.
Once the coast was clear, Sirius tugged the invisibility cloak off and hurried over to the tree. The branches were swaying slightly and he knew it wasn't because of the wind. There were a few sticks on the ground near the knot, so he quickly levitated the largest one to stop the Willow's movements.

Final GoodbyeThe mood at Grimmauld Place was never what one would describe as pleasant, but Harry noticed that there was something off about this morning in particular. Maybe it was his nerves, but he couldn't help the feeling that he was walking in a ghost town when he descended the stairs to the kitchen. He'd been mulling over the idea ever since he'd first come to stay for the summer, but he'd only finally worked up the courage last night to say something.Final Goodbye4 years ago in Fan Fiction More Like This
Great, he thought bitterly, The day's already miserable and I haven't even asked yet.
Harry's confidence took another hit when he took his seat at the table. The kitchen was full; the Weasleys were bustling about a recent Quidditch game, Kingsley Shacklebolt was pouring coffee for himself and Mad Eye Moody, and Tonks, Lupin and Hermione were deep in conversation about... something. Harry noticed, with a stab of annoyance, that the one person he'd really wanted to see wasn't there.

Remus rolled his eyes and unfolded the paper to show them the number 42.
"Ah, the answer to life, the universe, and everything," Sirius said in a very serious tone and nodded a few times as if he understood something very complicated. The other three boys looked at him like he'd just grown a third head. "What?"
"What the bloody hell are you talking about?" James asked, turning so he was facing his best friend fully.
Sirius shrugged then grinned like an idiot. "Guess we're going to the caves," he said happily then jumped up to pull Remus in a side hug.
"'Course we're going where he wants," Peter said under his breath as he finished packing the chess set.
Remus looked at him oddly, not sure what he meant by that and decided to ignore it. "I think we should get supplies before we go," he stated, pushing Sirius away from him. "We should get t

Sirius walked towards the left entrance and looked inside. "Oh, this one!" he exclaimed happily and turned back to the others. "It's so deep you can't even see the bloody bottom!"
James looked just as excited as his best friend and hurried over to see. While they peered inside, Remus walked to the right. "What about this one?" he called, taking a few steps inside. Almost as soon as he was in the cave he was surrounded by darkness.
Once Remus cast Lumos, the walls around him glittered from the light. "Merlin's pants " Peter whispered from behind and lit his own wand, making the walls shine a little brighter. Forgetting the others, the two boys continued to walk inside, marveling at the gleaming walls. "Is this why "
Remus shook his head as Peter trailed off. "My mum always said it was named after the man who found the cave

The hole that Sirius had just run through closed right behind him, enclosing him in a room that seemed even darker than the tunnel. With an irritated huff, he pulled out his wand and the tip lit up. He ignored the fairly large box that he'd sniffed out in favor of trying to get back to his friends.
"Oi!" he called through the spot where he had come from. When there was only silence tried again. But, still he got no answer.
Sirius thought he could hear something moving on the other side of the wall. Assuming the others were trying to get him out, he started to dig at the wall with one hand.
The next thing he knew, he was lying flat on his back a few meters away with the wind knocked out of him. Thankfully his bag had cushioned his fall somewhat. It took a moment for him to realize his ears were ringing and there was rubble covering his body.

That was strange. In the six years they'd been living in Gryffindor Tower, there had never been a DO NOT DISTURB sign on their dorm door. James and Sirius exchanged mischievous looks before the Chaser tried turning the doorknob.
"I can't believe they've actually locked us out," James said with a smirk and both boys pulled out their wands. Sirius whispered the unlocking charm before James tried opening the door again, only to fail. "They used Colloportus!"
Sirius shoved his best friend out of the way and tried the unlocking charm once again but with the same results. "Do you have a hair pin?" he asked, kneeling down to try and look through the keyhole.
But before James could answer, the door opened revealing Remus and Peter both standing there, looking at their friends curiously. "What are you two doing?" the Prefect asked, stepping aside so they could walk into the room.

"Harry," Hermione whispered to get the black haired boy's attention from their friend Ron. He stopped in midsentence when he heard the urgency in her tone. Before he could answer her, she grabbed his arm and pulled him into the library, knowing that Ron would follow after them.
Once the door was shut behind them Harry and Ron turned to the bushy haired girl. "What's wrong, 'Mione?" Harry asked in a nervous tone, thinking that maybe she'd managed to hear something during one of the Order's meetings.
The girl looked around them, probably searching for a pair of the twin's Extendable Ears. When she found nothing she finally told them what she'd feared since they returned for Christmas break. "I think Lupin and Sirius are hiding something from us."
"What are you talking about, Hermione?" Ron asked a little too loudly for her liking. "Sirius tells Harry everything.

"I'm bored," Sirius complained, elongating the second word to annoy his friends into motivation. The black haired boy had been repeating those two words for the last half hour but had gotten no response.
Peter and Remus had effectively ignored him by simply focusing on the chess board before them. Ever since first year, it had become Remus' goal in life to win a game against his friend. And in the seven years they'd known each other only one game had ended in a tie with Peter winning all the others.
While Sirius whined and the other two played, James had been busy trying to write a letter to Lily Evans, she had finally given in and said yes to a date. The two had been together since Christmas.
When no one moved to alleviate his boredom, Sirius huffed and jumped up from his seat by the window. "This is our last summer before the rest of our lives!"

James and Peter were both shaking their heads and all Remus could do was squeeze his wrist again. "No," Sirius said pushing the potion into the doctor's chest. He tried to jump from the table but the bottle was shoved back at him. Sirius was about to protest, really wanting to get out of there right now, but he saw the terrifying look in the man's eyes.
When Sirius' eyes went wide James knew something was wrong. Quickly and without really thinking his plan through, he swung his backpack around and pulled a handful of small balls out. "Oi!" he called, effectively getting the doctor's attention.
"What are-" Doctor Gier started to say but James dropped the balls. Once they hit the ground, green smoke filled the room as a quick pace. Remus pulled Sirius off of the table and hurried toward the door.

"That way," James instructed and started to pull Sirius down the cobblestone pathway. But he met resistance.
"Are you mad?" Remus asked as he gripped Sirius' waist and stayed in his spot. Although only two of his friends could hear, all of them looked at him curiously. "You want us to follow a path that suddenly appeared? Do you really think that's wise? I say we should go the way we came." He nodded toward the dirt path, hoping the other boy would see reason.
James just shook his head. "Sirius isn't in any condition to make it all the way back to the entrance," he reasoned and gripped his best mate just as much. "He can barely stand on his own never mind walking all the way back."
"That path might lead to someone who can help Padfoot," Peter chimed in and flushed from embarrassment when Remus frowned but held his ground. "You want him to

Although Remus was awake, he refused to open his eyes. His alarm hadn't gone off yet, that meant that he had woken up before he needed to. There were a few things what could have caused him to awaken before his alarm made him, but his brain was still fuzzy from sleep and wouldn't come up with any good excuses.
He tried to make himself go back to sleep, but froze when he felt something move by his side.
Normally the thing would be Sirius, but last night he and James had been planning a prank on the Ravenclaws - "A nice change, right Prongs?" - and Remus was a notorious light sleeper. So, that meant Sirius would be sleeping in his own bed so he wouldn't wake him.
Remus tried to think logically about whatever was sharing his bed with him. The only thing his still fuzzy brain could come up with was he was sharing his bed with some dangerous creature that moved as quietly as a cat in slippers.

Unimaginable pain shot through Sirius' body as he fell to his hands and knees. It felt like hours until his mother lifted the curse, but Sirius knew that it had only been a few seconds; she would never risk hurting the Black heir severely.
"Answer me, Sirius," she commanded coldly. When he looked up, he saw that she had lowered her wand to her side but noticed it twitch a few times. "I said: Answer. Me."
Sirius shook his head before resting his forehead on the ground to catch his breath. Even though the curse had been lifted his body still ached. "No," he mumbled, unable to bring his head up just yet.
"What did you say?" His mother's steps clicked as she walked across the hardwood floor over to him. The tip of her boot dug into his side until he was pushed it away and looked at her.

The four of them had quickly learned how the staircase worked their first year at Hogwarts. And for the past three years they’ve always wondered what the girls did since they had better security than the boys.
“Probably gossip,” Peter muttered just loud enough for his friends to hear him.
Sirius rolled his eyes and turned in his seat so his back was to the door. “Pete, that’s what they do in the common room,” he said condescendingly. “And most of the time they don’t even whisper what they’re saying. No, I think they do something worse in their dorms.”
