Chapter Forty-One: The Day the Impossible Happened

In Muggle Studies…

Mr. Wormtail finds himself with news to share.

Mr. Padfoot is most interested.

Mr. Prongs is also intrigued. It is rare for Mr. Wormtail to have news.

Mr. Moony suggests that Mr. Wormtail hurry up and tell before Mr. Padfoot and Mr. Prongs begin to rampantly speculate.

Mr. Padfoot objects. Prongs and I do not rampantly speculate.

Mr. Prongs doesn't know what universe Mr. Padfoot is living in, but in the real one, yes we do rampantly speculate.

My universe is lovely and comfortable and I am king of it.

Mr. Moony always suspected such.

Mr. Prongs isn't sure why he's friends with Mr. Padfoot sometimes.

Mr. Padfoot thinks it's true love.

Mr. Moony suggests that Mr. Wormtail go ahead and share. These two will get off topic no matter what.

Ahem. Mr. Wormtail would like to announce that he has a girlfriend.

WHAT?!

When did this happen?

Mr. Padfoot is now convinced the world is ending. The impossible has happened and is tearing at the very fabric of the universe as we know it. Soon all life on this dear sweet earth will vanish—

Mr. Moony thinks the melodrama gets worse by the day.

Mr. Padfoot would like to point out that he knows what that word means now.

I'm so proud.

Mr. Prongs would like to return to the matter at hand. (And point out exactly how often one of us has to say that.)

Mr. Padfoot considers himself a master of distraction.

No kidding.

Mr. Moony would like to know who Mr. Wormtail's girlfriend is.

Her name is Kate Atterbury. She's a Hufflepuff fifth year.

Mr. Moony thinks that's great. I wish you luck.

Mr. Padfoot asks permission to prank her.

Some days Mr. Prongs wishes Mr. Padfoot would grow up a tad bit. It's getting ridiculous.

Mr. Padfoot finds Mr. Prongs' newfound maturity ridiculous and blames Miss Evans.

Mr. Prongs supposes Mr. Padfoot's blame is well placed.

Mr. Padfoot shall prank both Evans and Miss Atterbury then.

Mr. Prongs advises against this if Mr. Padfoot values his life.

Mr. Wormtail concurs.

Mr. Padfoot relents. He won't prank them. But you two better watch your backs…

Mr. Prongs would like to remind Mr. Padfoot of the rule about not pranking fellow Marauders.

Mr. Padfoot thought that rule was suspended.

Mr. Moony believes the suspension was solely for the purpose of April Fools' Day last week.

It was never reinstated.

Consider it reinstated as of now, then.

Mr. Padfoot finds Mr. Moony to be no fun.

Mr. Wormtail would like to add that he and his girlfriend would like to borrow the Map and Cloak on Saturday for a date.

Mr. Prongs would be fine with that. Just don't misplace it. I don't have invisibility cloaks coming out of my ears, you know.

Mr. Padfoot finds that to be a rather hilarious mental image… one moment…

Mr. Prongs has a bad feeling about this. What's he doing, Moony?

I… It's hard to tell, but I think he's drawing you with cloaks streaming out your ears, Prongs.

Mr. Prongs demands that the image be destroyed before leaving the classroom. He doesn't want that plastered all over the school—NO PADFOOT DON'T YOU DARE.

Too late.

[a minute later]

Mr. Prongs didn't find that funny at all.

Mr. Padfoot did.

Mr. Moony actually must say, it was rather hilarious.

Mr. Prongs doesn't like any of you. Now Lily's going to tease me about that picture for months.

What about me? I didn't even do anything!

Mr. Prongs supposes he still likes Mr. Wormtail.

Something has just occurred to Mr. Padfoot.

Mr. Moony has a bad feeling about this.

Judging from the look on Padfoot's face, Mr. Prongs would think Mr. Moony is justified in that.

Mr. Padfoot would like to point out that now Mr. Moony is the only Marauder without a girlfriend.

Oh no…

Mr. Prongs supposes Mr. Padfoot is right.

Please. Guys. Don't.

Mr. Wormtail finds this to be a deficiency.

This isn't funny.

Mr. Padfoot agrees. Mr. Moony needs a girlfriend.

We've been over this, guys.

Mr. Prongs likes the way Mr. Padfoot's mind works.

Mr. Moony would like to remind everyone about his determination not to date a girl Mr. Padfoot has kissed.

Mr. Wormtail would like to point out that he found one.

Actually… about that…

PADFOOT.

Mr. Wormtail supposes he shouldn't have hoped.

A/N: Hope those of you who have been asking for more of Wormtail enjoyed that. :D Have a great week everyone and I'll see you next Friday! (Hopefully with more words for NaNoWriMo...)
