Pensive

Chapter 1

Remus and Peter pulling a prank on James and Sirius:


"Did you bring them?" Peter asked, eyes shining bright with suppressed glee.

"Yes" he whispered, patting his pocket with triumph "but wipe that smirk off your face, or they're going to get suspicious."

The two boys waited impatiently for their friends to arrive on the platform, leaving Remus and Peter to continuously jitter with anticipation. Remus still couldn't believe it had taken them two years to think of this.

Finally the two black haired youth's made their appearance, and the other two thirteen year old's burst in front of them with unfounded glee as they practically forced their friends into a compartment they had already cut off for themselves.

"What's got you two in such a rush?" Sirius asked, unable to keep a smile off his own face.

"We brought you something" Remus grinned.

"Me and Remus have been sending each other owl's all summer about some of the things you lot have never experienced in the muggle world" Peter explained before the two could ask "and so we snuck a little something on the train for you guys to try."

Intrigued at once, James and Sirius suspected nothing as they were each handed a can.

"It's called Pop" Remus explained, letting a little of his exuberance start to creep through "it's like nothing you've had before."

The two boys made to open the tab's, but Peter quickly said, as if just suddenly remembering "Wait, we didn't tell you. First you've got to shake them up a bit, make sure the flavor hasn't settled at the bottom."

The poor unsuspecting Purebloods thought nothing of it as they shook up their can's very well, and didn't seem to notice there friends had backed all the way to the compartment door when they finally cracked open their drinks.

Twin brown fizzes shot out of the top, hitting their holders in the face, and didn't quite stop even as they were released to the ground. The carbonation got everywhere, shooting up to the ceiling, making sure to splash across the window's and dowsing their trunks as well.

By the time James had taken off his glasses and found something dry to clean them off on, he replaced them to find Remus and Peter, not having been saved so dripping as much as them, on the sticky floor, laughing. Sirius and James exchanged a proud smile before joining in.

trippix1963: Not really a big surprise at the end, but it's pretty well written and fun. I liked the characters - they were more developed than in some successful published books I've read. A few typos but I've seen that in published books in the last few years.

75sandwiches: A great fantasy story (that I really hope is still ongoing) that includes:-A forgotten middle child-Forgettable pronunciation-A dude in need of souls-Threat of possible nonexistence-Eternal doom???Please, please let this story be on going. This is too good to stop at three chapters. The tone is s...

Regina Lum: While the plot so far is kind of linear and loosely follows Pride & Prejudice's plot, I find this version of Pride & Prejudice a very enjoyable read!! I read all 13 chapters in one sitting!! I can't stop myself from reading!I hope to read more and feel the love blossom between Elijah and William!...

Saffron Bloom : I've got to say this story is on my top 5 reading list. It's amazingly funny and the characters are given such personality! I love it and not just for a 'Goode' - wink wink - read but also because it helped me through some rough times with my family as well and it finally pushed me to do the thin...

Sanjana Prasad: The book is a really sweet high school romance. It captures all the aspects of teenage life gracefully. The confusion, the jealousy, the insecurities of the characters make an interesting plot. This book is recommended for anyone who is a sucker for teen fiction and high school romance.

Mya Rose: I absolutely adored the book! The grammatical elements were perfect, with impeccable punctuation and a rare count of typos/mistakes. The plot was realistic, yet fantasizing enough for readers to get lost in the characters and pages, myself included. The author's writing style, and technical writi...

PenumbraMINE: I really enjoyed this quirky story. It was sweet and funny and very well written and not the usual mystery romance.

Katharine Southworth: This story has such an interesting premise. It was well thought out and well executed.
