The Marauders' Notes

By Esin_of_Sardis


Boredom and Lily Evans' Head

Disclaimer: I don't Harry Potter. Sorry to disappoint you there. It belongs to J.K. Rowling, not me. Oh, and this disclaimer is for the whole story.

A/N: This story takes place during the spring of the Marauders' 6th Year at Hogwarts. They have charmed a piece of parchment so that when one of them writes on it, the message shows up on the other three pieces as well. (It's like a magical group chat.) This way, they can talk to each other in class without being detected. They refer to themselves in the third person most of the time, but for the times that they don't:

Mr. Padfoot/Sirius Black-Bold Italic

Mr. Moony/Remus Lupin-Bold

Mr. Prongs/James Potter-Plain

Mr. Wormtail/Peter Pettigrew-Italic


Chapter One: Boredom and Lily Evans' Head

In Muggle Studies…

Mr. Padfoot declares this class pointless and boring.

Mr. Moony agrees with Mr. Padfoot, but requests that he leave him alone. Mr. Moony wishes to take notes.

Mr. Prongs thinks Mr. Moony is being a good-goody spoilsport.

Mr. Padfoot invites Mr. Prongs to talk over here instead.

Mr. Moony wishes to remind Mr. Padfoot and Mr. Prongs what happened last time they were passing notes in class.

Mr. Wormtail wants to know what Mr. Moony is talking about.

Mr. Padfoot wants Mr. Wormtail to shut up and begs Mr. Moony to forget about aforementioned embarrassing and unpleasant memories.

Exactly that's why you and Prongs should quit passing notes.

Mr. Padfoot reminds Mr. Moony for the zillionth time to identify his note with his name.

Mr. Prongs joins Mr. Padfoot in his reminder to Mr. Moony.

Mr. Wormtail wishes to add that we need to appear as if we are working.

Mr. Prongs thinks that Mr. Wormtail should shut up. Again.

Later in Defense Against the Dark Arts…

Mr. Prongs is bored and in want of entertainment. He is open for suggestions.

Mr. Padfoot is bored too and is happy to join Mr. Prongs in whatever endeavors might bethought up.

Wormtail? Moony? Any suggestions?

Oh… I don't know… maybe you could take notes for once?

Mr. Padfoot is slightly scandalized by Mr. Moony's suggestion.

Mr. Prongs agrees with Mr. Padfoot and would like to add that taking notes would be even more boring than passing them.

Mr. Wormtail wonders where Mr. Padfoot and Mr. Prongs would be without Mr. Moony.

Mr. Moony doesn't have to wonder. He knows they would have been several years expelled already.

Mr. Prongs would like to express his undying gratitude to Mr. Moony.

Mr. Padfoot seconds that opinion and wants to add that Mr. Wormtail ought to keep his scruffy nose and thoughts to himself.

Mr. Wormtail is of the opinion that he can say whatever he likes.

Mr. Prongs agrees that Mr. Wormtail should shut up.

Later in Transfiguration…

Mr. Padfoot is very much interested to know what exactly Mr. Prongs finds so fascinating about the back of Lily Evans' head.

Mr. Prongs thinks that no matter how interested Mr. Padfoot may be, he shall remain curious because he will now leave Mr. Prongs alone.

Mr. Padfoot is adamant and continues to press for details.

Mr. Moony finds it prudent to inquire of Mr. Prongs on Mr. Padfoot's behalf.

Mr. Padfoot wonders what he is missing if Mr. Moony is worried enough to inquire.

Mr. Moony would like to inquire as to how exactly Mr. Prongs knows that Mr. Padfoot will now leave him alone.

Mr. Wormtail thinks that Mr. Prongs has a new hex he wishes to test out.


Sorry Prongs.

Yeah. Shut up Wormtail. Anyway, Mr. Padfoot can take anything Mr. Prongs throws at him.

Mr. Prongs sincerely doubts that.

Mr. Padfoot is eager to prove himself to Mr. Prongs at the earliest convenience.

Mr. Prongs will take Mr. Padfoot up on that offer, but right now Mr. Padfoot is distracting him from more interesting things.

Mr. Moony seconds the opinion that Mr. Padfoot is being distracting, but believes that Mr. Prongs is not so eager to get back to his impressive note-taking skills.

Mr. Prongs thinks that Mr. Moony should leave him alone too.

Mr. Moony would be happy to if Mr. Padfoot weren't so insistent on his participation in this…stimulating conversation.

Mr. Padfoot is willing to excuse Mr. Moony from this discourse on the condition that he share his notes.

Mr. Moony disapproves and suggests that Mr. Padfoot take his own notes.

Mr. Prongs agrees with Mr. Moony.

Mr. Padfoot finds the idea of note-taking repulsive and wants to find another topic ofconversation.

Mr. Wormtail wants to know if Mr. Padfoot is referring to Mr. Prongs' interest in Miss Evans.

Mr. Padfoot bids Mr. Wormtail to shut up and please not waste parchment by stating theobvious.

Mr. Prongs seconds that statement and wishes Mr. Padfoot would follow his own advice.

Mr. Padfoot gives advice for those who are not fortunate enough to be him.

Mr. Moony is suffocating under the pressure of Mr. Padfoot's inflated ego.

Remarks about his ego aside, Mr. Padfoot wishes to get back on topic.

By continuing this line of interrogation, Mr. Padfoot is only bringing down disappointment upon his sorry self.

Mr. Padfoot is insulted that Mr. Prongs is not impressed by his greatness.

Will you two just stop it and pretend to pay attention?!

Mr. Padfoot chastises Mr. Moony for his forgetfulment of the rules.

"Forgetfulment" isn't even a word, Padfoot.

Mr. Prongs issues a second warning to Mr. Moony. Another offense will result in a hex.

Mr. Padfoot doesn't care if it wasn't a word because it is one now.

And who—

Moony! The rules!

Fine! Mr. Moony would like to know what idiot gave Mr. Padfoot the right to make up words.

Mr. Padfoot is the granter of all rights.

Mr. Moony would like to announce that Mr. Padfoot will be giving lessons on acquiring and maintaining an enormous ego on the third and fourth Tuesday of each month at seven p.m.—

Mr. Padfoot ridicules Mr. Moony for preposterous ideas.

Mr. Prongs assures Mr. Moony that "preposterous" is a word.

I know that!

Mr. Prongs would like Mr. Moony to control his temper. We are in class.

Mr. Padfoot suggests that Mr. Moony get back to his brilliant note-taking.

Mr. Moony is interested in knowing the reasons behind Mr. Padfoot's sudden interest in note-taking.

Mr. Padfoot would like to point out that his interest in notes is limited to those taken by Mr. Moony.

Mr. Moony questions the validity of Mr. Padfoot's motives.

Mr. Padfoot draws the attention of Messers Moony and Wormtail to the fact that Mr. Prongs is distracted.

Yes, Padfoot... It's fascinating. Now that I've missed most of the lesson may I return to my note-taking? I have better things to do than watch Prongs watch Evans.

Mr. Padfoot gives Mr. Moony permission to return to his notes.

Mr. Wormtail wonders why Mr. Padfoot is so suddenly interested in Mr. Prongs' interest in MissEvans. Mr. Wormtail feels that he might be missing something.

Mr. Padfoot chides Mr. Wormtail for his lack of attention to important matters.

Mr. Moony congratulates Mr. Padfoot for his impressive variety of verbs and wonders when Prongs' non-existent love life came to reside under "important matters."

Mr. Padfoot has always considered Mr. Prongs' and Miss Evans' relationship to be of the utmostimportance.

Mr. Wormtail would like to know if this is out of concern for Mr. Prongs or because watchingthem is so amusing.


Mr. Moony is not surprised.

Thanks for reading everyone! Review if you have a moment :)
