Word Count: 561
What were you lot scribbling about in Charms?
Notes. Yes, I guess you lot will borrow them.
Aww now I'm interested!
Don't worry, it was nothing.
What about Pads? Where's he?
Apparently. Don't you want to know what I was doing?
What were you doing during Charms, James?
Staring at Evans?
She looks so gorgeous when she writes. She bites her lip in just this way, and her ink-stained hands…
Or the way she looks at the teacher?
Or the way she scrunches her delicate shoulders just so, and the light shows off the frosting of freckles dusted across her cute nose?
Or how her hair actually looks like a halo of flames?
So befitting her personality…
Shut up. Just because neither of you have felt the effects of unrequited love!
Not sure I want to, hey Moon!
Erm… yea, not at all!
*narrows eyes* what.
See, whenever you get like Sirius we know you're hiding something.
I'm not acting like Pads!
Yes you are. The Remus we know would give a sarcastic remark or start talking about how true love is subtle-
-not agree with Pete. Pads would do that.
Um… I'm really not acting like Sirius.
You really are.
Hey, how do you know what true love is like?
Uh… I just… I dunno, I watch people, and see what works and what doesn't, it's-
REM'S IN LOVE!
No, I'm really not. I told you, I read a lot, and I observe people. It's the only reason I know anything about love, and even then it's only my opinion.
I really can't tell if you're lying or not.
But if you haven't ever experienced love…
HOW CAN YOU TELL ME THAT YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS!
Maybe I am in love! Maybe I just express it differently!
If I know nothing else, I know this. Love is forever.
The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.
So shouldn't Pads be the wisest man in the world?
How do you know Shakespeare?
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! IT'S SO TRUE!
Answer my question now.
I don't. Well I might. What's Shakespeare?
Where did you learn that then?
Sirius. He said it to me last week. I said the same thing Pete did.
Now we all know that James is a fool, not a wise man.
Nah, you're just jealous.
Leave him alone. Remus is wiser then you can ever be.
Back from the dead?
It's his name.
Yes, REMUS is his name.
What are you getting at Pete?
Nothing. Don't worry.
He's not calling you any of his ridiculous nicknames.
James, I swear you have the subtlety of a troll.
He's a Gryffindor through and through.
What's that supposed to mean?
Only that you have no deeper levels?
You wear your heart on your sleeve?
You have NO SUBTLETY!
What is this, pick on James day?
"What is this, pick on Remus day?"
"REMUS! WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING HERE?"
"The bell went ages ago. It's nearly time for Transfig. Did you lot honestly not see that your whole class has left?"
"We missed break?"
"Don't whine. It's your own fault."
"I can whine better then you ever will, deer James."
