Sirius' Potion Mistake

Marauders and Maraudettes

Chapter 16: Marauders and Maraudettes

It was September 1st. Harry, Ron, and Hermione had decided to stay at Hogwarts for the remainder of the summer. Harry was now completely healthy physically and mentally. Death Eaters were being captured and tried. Sirius had been declared free. Life was good.

It got even better when they ran into Snape who had, unfortunately for him, not heard the news about the Potter's miraculous recovery from death (actually, Dumbledore kept that pretty quiet). After some teasing and telling the Golden Trio off about how students should not be in school over the summer and roaming the hallways, he walked towards the Great Hall. Too bad nobody told him Lily Evans Potter was within hearing range disguised as Rose Jarter.

At the feast, Harry, Ron, and Hermione sat with Fred, George, and Ginny Weasley, and Neville Longbottom who was in a terrific mood since the cure that Sara Montgomery found for his parents was administered to them. Harry could relate to Neville.

After the Sorting, Dumbledore made his announcements. First, he warned the first years and a few others that the Forbidden Forest was STILL forbidden. Then he introduced Remus Lupin to the students, which was received with cheers, catcalls, and groans (Slytherins). After that, he introduced Lily as Rose Jarter who would take over Professor Lupin's class once a month.

Unfortunately for Snape, he was seated right next to her. She had not forgotten what he had said to her son. She also remembered what Remus had told her a couple of months ago (about the points). Before the feast, she had gotten together with her friends and planned to do something to Snape.

The Marauders were too busy planning their own prank on the entire Slytherin House. James, Sirius, and Remus had already discussed the prank and James and Sirius were waiting underneath the invisibility cloak for the cue. The actual prank was in place.

Halfway during the feast, Snape decided to do something that disgusted Harry. He decided to hit on Lily. However, Lily did not like that. After she excused herself, she joined her friends underneath Spica's invisibility cloak. Lily had whispered the charm earlier. Melissa and Spica waited until Lily gave them the signal and they used magic to blow out the candles. The only source of light was Severus' greasy hair which was glowing neon pink. When Dumbledore turned the lights back on, Snape's hair had actually TURNED that color.

"Those girls are SO Marauder material." Sirius whispered to James.

Just then, above the staff table, pink letters started to form.

COURTESEY OF THE MARAUDETTES: THE FEMALE VERSION OF THE MARAUDERS. WE LIVED AT THE SAME TIME AS MOONY, WORMTAIL, PADFOOT, AND PRONGS, BUT WE NEVER DID ANYTHING AS MEMERABLE AS THEM. A WORD OF CAUTION: WATCH WHO YOU TEASE BECAUSE THE MARAUDERS AND THE MARAUDETTES WILL BE WATCHING YOU.

ADOLPHA, BUSHTAIL, AND VIXY (A/N: I know they are not very original)

"I guess they already are." James told Sirius.

All of a sudden, the Slytherins started screaming as flowers started to sprout from the food and the green and sliver turned to red and gold.

Just above the Slytherin table, gold letters appeared just as they did at the staff table.

COURTESEY OF THE MARAUDERS. LIKE THE MARAUDETTES SAID, WE WILL BE WATCHING.

MOONY, PADFOOT, AND PRONGS.

P.S. MR. PRONGS WOULD LIKE TO ASK MISS. VIXY IF THE MARAUDETTES WOULD LIKE TO TEAM UP WITH THE MARADERS FOR ONCE.

Above the staff table, pink letters wrote out,

MISS. VIXY WOULD LIKE TO TELL MR. PRONGS THAT THE MARAUDETTES WOULD LOVE TO TEAM UP WITH THE MARADERS.

Then,

MISS. BUSHTAIL AND MISS. ADOLPHA WISH TO KNOW IF MR. PADFOOT AND MR. MOONY WOULD LIKE TO GO TO HOGMEADE WITH THEM.

MISS. VIXY WOULD LIKE TO REMIND MISS. BUSHTAIL AND MISS. ADOLPHA, THAT WE ARE ONLY HERE TO PRANK AND NOT TO ASK THE MARAUDERS OUT ON DATES.

At the Slytherin table,

MR. PADFOOT AND MR. MOONY WOULD LIKE TO TELL MISS. BUSHTAIL AND MISS. ADOLPHA THAT WE WOULD LOVE TO GO WITH YOU.

MR. PADFOOT WISHES TO REMIND MISS. VIXY THAT EVEN THOUGH SHE IS ALREADY MARRIED, TO NOT GET IN THE WAY OF OUR DATES.

At the staff table,

MISS. VIXY WOULD LIKE TO TELL MR. PADFOOT THAT HE IS A PRAT AND TO REMIND HIM THE NUMBER OF TIMES HE WOULD SPY ON MR. PRONGS DURING HIS DATES WITH MISS. VIXY .

At the Slytherin table,

MR. PRONGS AGREES WITH MISS VIXY.

Underneath James' invisibility cloak, Sirius stuck his tongue out at James.

A/N: In case you are wondering how the Marauders knew the Maraudette names, that will be revealed in the next chapter.
