Chapter Two: The Note Taking Scandal

In Muggle Studies…

Mr. Wormtail would like to express his astonishment that Mr. Padfoot and Mr. Prongs are actually taking notes.

Mr. Padfoot is hurt by this slur on his typical classroom behavior.

Mr. Prongs feels compelled to point out that Mr. Moony is not here to take notes.

Mr. Wormtail is surprised that Mr. Padfoot and Mr. Prongs care enough about their education to take notes in Mr. Moony's absence.

Mr. Prongs thinks that Mr. Wormtail is being ridiculous.

Mr. Padfoot has a lot more fun at school than anywhere else. Except when he's in class, ofcourse.

Mr. Prongs would appreciate it if Mr. Wormtail and Mr. Padfoot would go back to their note-taking and let Mr. Prongs go back to his. He promised Mr. Moony he would pass along what happened in class and Mr. Prongs is a man of his word.

Mr. Padfoot thinks that Mr. Prongs' note-taking parchment is looking a little… blank.

Mr. Prongs maintains that nothing important has yet been said in this class.

Mr. Wormtail thinks Mr. Moony would disagree.

Mr. Padfoot can add two and two.

Mr. Prongs congratulates Mr. Padfoot for his extraordinary mathematical skills.

Mr. Padfoot chooses to ignore Mr. Prongs' rude comment and wishes to inquire why exactly Mr. Prongs is so eager to return to his notes if he has not yet in fact made any.

Mr. Wormtail is curious too.

Mr. Prongs doesn't want to miss anything that might be important.

What? Like the fact that Miss Evans' hair just turned purple?

[Prongs' head whips around to look at Evans' hair.]

Mr. Padfoot finds Mr. Prongs' definition of "important" interesting.

Mr. Prongs wishes that Mr. Padfoot would tell the truth and quit making a fool of him in class.

Mr. Padfoot denies all charges.

Mr. Prongs wishes Mr. Moony was here to take good notes.

Mr. Wormtail wonders when the professors will notice that Mr. Padfoot and Mr. Prongs only know information that is not taught at the full moon.

Mr. Padfoot is horrified by Mr. Wormtail's blunt words regarding Mr. Moony.

Mr. Prongs is glad Mr. Moony is not here to freak out at that comment.

Mr. Padfoot would like to remind Mr. Wormtail that Mr. Moony's furry little problem is not to be mentioned directly in company.

Mr. Wormtail was under the impression that this parchment is private.

Mr. Padfoot knows that. But it's not invisible; therefore we owe our friend and comrade our silence.

Mr. Wormtail offers his apologies.

Mr. Prongs graciously accepts those apologies on both his and Mr. Padfoot's behalf.

Mr. Padfoot does not appreciate apology thievery.

Mr. Wormtail would also like to point out to Mr. Prongs that taking notes for Mr. Moony in this class is pointless.

Mr. Prongs wonders why this is.

Prongs, this is Muggle Studies. Moony is a half-blood. His mother is a muggle. Moony knows everything he needs to know about muggles.

Oh.

Yeah. Nice going Prongs.

Mr. Prongs is seriously rethinking this whole note-taking idea.

Mr. Padfoot thinks that is an excellent idea. He's missing his partner in inattentiveness.

Mr. Prongs has a further question: why is Lily taking this class? She's muggle-born, isn't she?

Mr. Padfoot offers a simple explanation: it's Evans. Like our own dear Moony, she takes everything.

Right.

Mr. Wormtail wonders if this is the first time this has occurred to Mr. Prongs.

Mr. Prongs cannot remember wondering about it before.

Really Prongs? You've only been obsessing over her for five years. And been in this class with her for four of them.

Mr. Wormtail echoes Mr. Padfoot's remarks: seriously?!

No, not Siriusly. Jamesily. I'm Sirius. He's James.

That joke got old in first year, Padfoot.

I know. That's why it amuses me so much.

Mr. Wormtail is rather disgusted by Mr. Padfoot's sense of humor.

Mr. Prongs thinks Mr. Wormtail sounds like Mr. Moony. Are you sure you don't have him hiding under your cloak or something Wormy?

Don't be ridiculous, Pro—

EUREKA!

What is it now, Padfoot?

Mr. Padfoot has made a rather brilliant discovery.

Mr. Prongs wearily urges Mr. Padfoot to continue.

Mr. Padfoot has realized that "Jamesily" is a combination of Prongs and Evans' names.

WE'RE MEANT FOR EACH OTHER!

Now look what you've done, Padfoot.

[Three minutes later.]

Mr. Prongs thinks that went well.

Mr. Padfoot wonders when Mr. Prongs lost his mind.

Mr. Wormtail also doubts Mr. Prongs' sanity. You do realize that jumping up and proposing marriage to her in the middle of class wasn't the best idea, don't you?

Mr. Prongs concedes that it could have gone better. A simple "no" would have been better than a detention and getting a book thrown at his head. He had no idea that the Muggle Studies textbooks were so heavy.

Mr. Wormtail would like to inquire if Mr. Prongs has actually looked at his Muggle Studies textbook since he bought it before third year.

Mr. Prongs doesn't think he has.

Mr. Wormtail suggests that Mr. Prongs not tell Mr. Moony that.

Mr. Prongs agrees with Mr. Wormtail's assessment.

Mr. Padfoot has noticed that it is only a few minutes before the bell. Maybe we ought to pack up. Professor Burbage has finished talking.

Mr. Prongs thinks this is an excellent idea. Certainly one of Mr. Padfoot's more brilliant ones.

Mr. Wormtail begs Mr. Prongs to not try to talk to Miss Evans on the way out of class. He's already infuriated her enough for one class period.

Mr. Padfoot agrees. Promise us you won't do anything stupid, Prongs. Like talk to Evans. Or follow her. Or as much as glance in her general direction. We really don't want you to have to join Mr. Moony in the hospital wing.

Relax, guys. I'll just pretend Evans doesn't even exist.

Mr. Padfoot seriously doubts Mr. Prongs' ability to do this.
