Summary: Chapter 1 of 'Marauders', in which the boys, their handwriting, an invention and boredom are introduced.
Word Count: 818
First let me explain about the 4 way parchments. Basically they are 4 pieces of parchment magically connected. Each parchment is split into 4 sections, and each section connects with a certain person’s parchment. Sirius is top left corner, Remus top right, James bottom left and Peter bottom right. So for example, if Sirius wants to talk to James and only James, he would write in the bottom left corner, for James to reply he would write in the top left corner. BUT if you wished to speak to all the Marauders at the same time, the corner that is allocated as ‘yours’ connects to all parchments. So if Peter wanted to talk to everyone, he would write in the bottom right corner. The writing appears in the corner of the person who wrote to you, so if Peter wrote to Remus, the writing would appear on the bottom right corner of Remus’ parchment. The parchment is automatically wiped at the end of a conversation.
That’s nice Wormy.
I’m so bored I can’t even be bothered writing in 3rd person.
Is it just me or does Pads look like he’s paying attention?
That’s not right.
No it’s not! That’s just weird.
Maybe…maybe he’s seen the light?
Moons, you do realise you’re talking about Padfoot don’t you.
I know, but…
HOLY CRAP!!!!! IS HE TAKING NOTES!?!?!?!?!
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! PADFOOT COME BACK TO ME!!!!!!!! PADFOOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Calm down mate! I’m sure there’s a reason!
And you’d be right Moon-Baby. Seen the light. Bah!
shut it Worm.
Sirius!!! You’ve come back to me!!!!!! *hugs*
James you prick I never went anywhere!
What were you doing?! We thought you were taking notes!!!
Calm down!!!! I was only daydreaming!!!!
Well it was pretty intense daydreaming. You were staring at the parchment and WRITING!
I swear!!! I was only daydreaming!!!!!!
I believe you.
Thanks Worm. Knew I could count on you!
Nice drawing by the way, I didn’t know you were an artist.
HAHA! You were drawing on the 4 way!!!!
So who’s the drawing of?
(to Peter) WHAT THE HELL!!!!! WHY DID YOU BRING THAT UP HERE!!!!!
There’s no bloody space to write to you mate. And it’s such a nice picture I didn’t want to defile it!
Who’s the lucky girl?
Or not so lucky, I mean it IS Padfoot.
Shut up Potter.
C’mon Petey! You can’t leave us in the dark!
I’m sure it doesn’t mean anything. I was just surprised at how well Sirius can draw.
You must’ve had lots of practice.
Touched a nerve there did I?
Can we see the rest of your drawings?
Maybe I should show them this drawing then. It’s such a lovely piece of art, it should bless more then two pairs of eyes before it’s wiped.
Why not Pads?
Do we know her?
You’ll take it the wrong way.
It’s not EVANS is it!!!!!!!!!!
No, Jamie, it’s not Evans.
Well who is it then?
James, the world does not revolve around Lily.
Good job mate, you made him hyperventilate.
LILY!!!!!! SINCE WHEN DO YOU CALL HER LILY??
I’ve known her for 5yrs mate. I think I can call her Lily.
Mr. Padfoot would like to comment that there has been a lot of shouting in current conversation.
Mr. Moony inquires as to whom mr. Padfoot spent the last half hour drawing.
Shut up Remus.
What? No Remy-poo?
I’m hurt Sirius.
WHEN have I called you Remy-poo?
Well there was Rem, Remy, Remykins,
There was Moony-Woony-Kins once.
Never call me that.
Ok, now you’re just repeating yourself.
We could never run out of your nicknames for Remus. If they were food, no-one would ever go hungry.
Moondrop, Moonglass, Ambermoon,
Mr. Padfoot requests that the dog-bashing stops as he gets your point. He would also like to state that he hasn’t sunk as low as REMY-POO yet.
Mr. Moony would like to point out the operative word: yet.
Mr. Wormtail shudders at the thought of what other names he might make up.
Mr. Prongs joins in the shuddering and would like to state the bell just went. The class is officially over.
A scuffle immediately ensued, as James and Remus tried to get the drawing before Sirius wiped it.
“HA!” Sirius crowed, triumphant.
“Sirius, you’re sitting on my arm.”
“See? He never calls you Remus!”
“Shut it James.”
“So when do we get to see the rest of the drawings?”
“I said shut it.”
