Chapter 1: Reminiscing

One day in the middle of July, things in the wizarding world were looking grim. One of the darkest wizards in the world had just risen and most people did not believe it.

At the house of Remus Lupin, a man named Sirius Black was hard at work TRYING to make some weird potion.

"Padfoot? What in Merlin's name are you trying to do?" Remus asked coming back from a mission for the Order of the Phoenix.

Sirius jerked his head up and saw one of his best friends from school

"Oh. Hi Moony. I had an idea last week."

"That's a first."

"Hey. At least listen."

"Ok Sirius. I'm listening."

"I was just thinking about the way Snape has been treating Harry. So, I said to myself: 'I bet Snivellus wouldn't treat Harry that way if Lily and/or James were around.'"

"Let me guess." Remus interrupted, "You want to try to bring them back to life."

"No. I mean… I would LIKE to, but you and I both know that is not possible."

"Glad to see you are finally coming to terms with James' death."

"May I finish?"

"Sorry. Go ahead."

"Anyways. I looked in some spell books that you have, and I found a potion that can make ghost."

"I didn't know I had one like that. Oh. This was the free copy Sara gave me. So you're going to try and bring back Lily and James' ghost and have them haunt Hogwarts?"

"Yep."

"I'm going to kill Wormtail when I get a hold of him. Those 12 years in Azkaban have really pushed you over the cliff."

"Get in line Moony. I have first dibs and Harry has second."

"If I recall correctly, Harry wanted to give Wormtail over to the Dementors so that you can be free."

"I know. I was going to ask permission to kill him once I was free. I had already thought it out."

"This is just a day for miracles. You thought AND read a book."

"Hey!"

"You know I'm kidding. Have you heard from Harry lately?"

"Yeah. He's doing alright considering what he went through last month. I've already written him back."

The two men looked down at the potion deep in thought.

"Are you sure this will work Padfoot?"

"No. But it never hurts to try."

Remus sighed and sat down on a tattered couch. All of a sudden, he started to chuckle.

"What is so funny?"

"Nothing. I was just remembering two years ago. I was patrolling the halls when I came across Snape and Harry. Harry had the Marauders map in his hand and there was some writing on it."

"What did it say?"

"Mr. Moony presents his compliments to Professor Snape and begs him to keep his abnormally large nose out of other people's business."

Sirius grinned.

"There's more. Mr. Prongs agrees with Mr. Mooney and would like to add that Professor Snape is an ugly git."

"That sounds like something Prongs would say." Sirius said in a full out smile.

"Then you'll love this one. Mr. Padfoot would like to register his astonishment that an idiot like that ever became a Professor."

By now, Sirius was laughing his head off.

I better stop here because the next one is Wormtail's.

When Sirius calmed down, he took a deep breath before asking something he was debating.

"What did Mr. Wormtail say?"

"Do you really want to know?"

"Even though the traitor said it, I can't pass up an opportunity to hear a Snape insult."

"Alright. Mr. Wormtail bids Professor Snape good day and advises him to wash his hair, the slimeball."

Even though the traitor of the Marauders had said it, Sirius could not hold the laughter at the truth of the insult.

"Snivellus does need to wash his hair."

"I agree." Remus said smiling. "So how long before we can see the ghost of our friends?"

Sirius looked at the book.

"Tomorrow I add the last ingredient."

"Which is?"

"1 teaspoon of Dragon Blood."

The next day,

"Ok. I have the Dragon Blood and the measuring spoons. Now to pour it in."

Unfortunately for Sirius, Remus had gone to Diagon Ally to stock up on the potion supplies that Sirius had used up when he started the potion during the full moon.

"I need to start locking my stuff up." Remus had said before he disapperated.

Sirius positioned the spoon and the bottle over the caldron. When he poured it in…

Erin Crowley: The concept here is really strong, but the execution is definitely lacking. Tenses, grammar, etc are all off, with at least one or more errors per 'Page' on my phone.
