In theory, the concept of starting a prank war with Sirius Black to draw his concentration away from our bet had been a marvellous idea. In practice, the idea was as ridiculous as the idea of Bellatrix Lestrange - the school's resident psychopath - prancing around in pink. It was a foolish notion to believe that I, an amateur in mischief-making, would be able to best a group of skilled trouble-makers; but try, I did anyway. It was only a few days succeeding my initial pranks that Sirius had launched a counter-attack and had doused me in a potion that turned my skin red. He'd spent the entirety of the twenty-four hours that the potion was in effect bothering me over how I must have a secret thing for Gryffindors that had compelled me to dye my skin the same shade of red as their house. My retaliation had come in the form of a handy charm that had caused several of the foods on the Gryffindor table to dive-bomb the Marauders for the entirety of bot

As the limbs were moved by the wind they would knock into the neighbouring trees as they tried to move freely in their constricted domain.

I hesitated at the edge of the clearing and stopped, watching the figure closely as my fringe tried to whip into my eyes and obscure my view. I brushed the brown locks away in impatience as the figure began to move across the distance. I watched his approach as my name seemed to whi

Everyone knew Sirius Black. It was near impossible to be in attendance at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and not know Sirius Black - infamous Marauder and devilishly handsome playboy. If you were a member of the female population of Hogwarts it was an exceptionally difficult feat to be able to claim that you didn't know who Sirius Black was and sound believable, which was why it was no surprise that my friends and I were well versed in the scandalous life of Sirius Black - who he was going out with, what he was wearing and occasionally what he had eaten for breakfast. The facts that some of the female members of Hogwarts knew about Sirius Black were terribly scarring for the small minority of students who just didn't give a crap, a minority I was proud to announce that I was a part of.
The fascination that swept through the castle over Sirius' antics was quite sickening to say the least, as some of the girls tore apart the building try

Ce plat frisson ,
et ce flou !

La vie s'en va,
mes mains ,

and this vague!
from my hands,
and I watch
From these fingers
that don't know how to hold anymore,
