Sirius' Potion Mistake


A/N: Thank you for the reviews. I asked this question in my other Harry Potter Fic, but I'm going to ask this again. I'm planning on letting Harry become an animagus. What animal should he become? (Try to keep it small, please). Before I forget: I DON'T OWN HARRY POTTER! Back to the story.

Chapter 5: Letters

The owl landed in front of Sirius. He reached and pulled the piece of parchment off the leg. Then the owl flew to the top of the bookshelf and rested.

"Thanks Hedwig." Sirius told the owl.

"Who'd be writing to you?" James asked.

"Don't you feel the love in the room Moony?" Sirius asked.

"Yes. Between Lily and James." Remus answered.

"Thanks a lot. And for your information James Potter, there are people who believe my innocence."

Lily, James, and Remus had a hard time keeping the laughter in.


"Sorry. It's just mentioning you and the word "Innocence" in the same sentence. The guy who pulled Severus' trousers down in 3rd year?" James said trying to hold back his laughter.

"Look who's talking Mr. I-Dyed- Snivellus'-Hair-Hot-Pink-in-4th-year."

"That was all of Slytherin." Remus corrected.

"What's in the letter?" Lily asked.

"Who WROTE the letter?" James asked.

Sirius read the letter and smiled.

"It's from Harry." Remus told them

Just then, a small tawny owl swooped in and landed in front of Remus.

"Thank you." Remus told the owl before it flew off.

James and Lily watched as their friends read their letters.

"Read it aloud Padfoot." James begged wanting to hear what his son has to say.

"Dear Snuffles,

How are you? Thanks for the letter. Please don't do anything stupid. I know you don't like the way Snape treats me, but he treats everyone like that. (Ok. So he treats me worse). Don't worry, but I had another nightmare last night. It was just a recap about what happened last month. But enough about that. There is another reason why I wrote. I probably should have told you earlier, but since the last full moon, I've been getting a weird feeling. Like something big is going to happen to my life. At first I thought I was just more worried than usual about Remus. But then, it went on past the full moon. The feeling was its strongest this morning. I don't know if I should tell Dumbledore or not. I hope to hear from you soon.



P.S. I'm serious about the not doing anything stupid."

"Are you going to tell him?" Remus said absentmindedly as he read his own letter.

"I want to. I should. But I don't want it intercepted."

"I have so many questions now." James said.

"Which Harry will answer." Sirius told him

"I propose we go kidnap my son." Lily said.

"Dumbledore wants me to teach again." Remus said as he finished his letter.

"Again?" James asked.

"I taught the year Snuffles here broke out of Azkaban."

"I probably should hint to him about it. Hopefully only Harry would be able to read in between the lines." Sirius said.

He grabbed a piece of parchment and a quill.

Dear Harry,

I just got your letter. Thank you. I'm doing better than usual. I wish I could help about the nightmares, but the only thing I could say is take some more dreamless-sleep potion. I'm forming a plan about Snape. I hope it will work. Don't worry. I won't do anything stupid. I do know about that funny feeling you mentioned. Trust me. It is something big. Almost as big as Hagrid. (Not literally of course. Mrs. Prongs would kill me if I meant that). Don't tell Dumbledore. Leave that to Moony, Prongs and I. By the way, you're not serious. I am.



P.S. No. I'm not losing it. I really did mean Prongs and Mrs. Prongs.

"Isn't the Sirius-serious joke a little old" James asked

"Of course not." Sirius said as he tied the parchment onto Hedwig.

After Hedwig flew off, the foursome decided that it was time for tea.
