Lily walked down the hall towards the library, pushing a stray lock of hair out of her face. She was trying to find books for her Muggle Studies project, and had no clue where to start. I can't believe it's only day two and we already have this much homework she sighed and hurried on. What she wanted to do was find muggle books, like muggle playwrights, and do a project on them, but didn't know if that would be allowed--or even if she could get her hands on them at Hogwarts.
She walked into the library and heading towards the back, then stopped and smirked when she saw a familiar head at a table. She weaved through and snuck behind him, putting her hand on his shoulder.
"Homework already, Siri?" she asked, smirking down at her twin.
Sirius looked up as he heard the familiar voice of his sister Lily. He smirked, that trademark smirk from a namesake he never knew. It was almost scary at times how well he pulled it off.
Sirius slouched back in the chair, his sleeves rolled up and his tie already loosened, but at least still around his neck.
"Why Lily darling, how dare you say such a thing? I'm offended. It's only the second day back." He responded.
Lily laughed in reply and sat across from him, grinning. "Of course not. You won't do it until halfway through the semster. And you a Prefect at that!" She tousled his hair, which annoyed him at times, then grinned. "I should take points from Gryffindor for untidyness."
She glanced around the library. "So, what ARE you doing here? I see no pretty girls to flirt with."
"Oh, ask and you shall recieve, sister dear. But no, you're right. I'm not here for the pretty girls." He narrowed his eyes at her, as if considering what he should say. He finally looked around him to check if anyone was nearby.
"All right, I'll tell you. But you have to promise not to tell Mum and Dad." He said, looking her straight in the eye.
Lily arched one eyebrow. "Oh really? What do I get if I don't tell?" She smirked, knowing something interesting would come of this if he didn't want mum and dad to know. If you couldn't tell Harry Potter, you couldn't tell anyone.
"WHAT?!" Lily almost shrieked. Madam Pince rushed over and shushed her loudly. Lily blushed and leaned in. "Siri, you can't do that! It's illegal! And what would dad say? And MUM?!"
She frowned for a few seconds, then grinned. "What's your form?"
"I'm a wolf. I haven't changed yet, of course. But I know it'll be awesome when I do." he answered her, grinning back. "And Mum and Dad won't have anything TO say, because they're not going to know. Right, Lily?" Sirius said, giving her a pointed look.
Lily blinked and smiled innocently. "Of course not, Siri. I can't even believe you would say such a thing!" She smirked at him. "So, when's your first change due to happen, Mr. I Want To Be A Rebel All The Time?"
Lily knew Siri wouldn't do anything stupid, but she was kind of worried about him...
"DUH!" Lily replied, grinning at him. "Why wouldn't I want to come? It'll be so cool!! Hey," she said, thinking of something. "Can I bring James? You know, with his wolfy senses, he could be fun to have around for the change!"
"Well of course you can bring James. It'd almost be like sacrilege if he isn't there. And besides, I know you'd just love to snog him behind some tree in the moonlight. How romantic." Sirius smirked, putting a breathy quality to his voice on the end of his sentence.
Lily blushed. "Bugger off, Siri," she said, glancing around to make sure no one was there--there wasn't, of course, but still. "That is NOT why I want to bring him along, and you know it. He would want to see the change, with his wolfishness and all."
But, yes, she admitted, snogging James would be a bit of a plus.
He grinned, giving her a knowing look. "Hmmm...I'm not sure if I believe you, sister dear. But I'll let you off the hook for now." He replied, looking around as well. His mind was wandering back to the thought of those pretty girls...
Neville wandered in to the Library, a bored look on his face. He caught sight of his siblings and groaned a little. He really was hoping to get started on his Potions homewrok, but with them here...
He shrugged, and made his way to the table they were at. It was always a fun time with them, at least.
"Siri, Lily. Already procrastinating on your homework?"
"See now Lily, here's a sibling who knows me. You don't do homework on the second day of school." Sirius snorted and rolled his eyes a little, turning to his brother, his smirk turning into more of a grin.
"What's up with you little man?
Neville let out a quiet curse in parsel tongue. He hated that nickname.
"Well as can be expected, I suppose. And actually, I WAS coming in here to work on potions, but saw you two and decided I wouldn't get any work done anyway. What are you two up to, anyway? Getting ready to get in trouble again, I'd wager."
There was a lightheartedness to his voice that was only there when he talked to his siblings.
Neville caught the glance his brother gave his sister, and knew they were up to something.
"Oh, there's LOTS to do on a day like this, and you know most of them. Last year, in fact, wasn't it you who set off the dungbomb in Myrtle's bathroom?"
Neville was watching carefully, trying to pick up a hint of what his siblings were really up to.
"And lets not forget how humble you are. That's always a plus."
Neville was smiling, indicating that he was mostly kidding.
"So, another wonderful prank in the works? Or is it something more serious? I KNOW you two are up to SOMETHING.""
"Up to something? Nev, why woukd you think that?" Lily smiled at her younger brother. "Siri and I are merely conversing about his little crushes." Of course, she knew he wouldn't fall for that, which was the point.
She did feel bad for him, though. He was always left out of their little escapades. She glanced at her twin, "Maybe we should tell him," she said, grinning
Sirius grinned back. He was their brother, and for all that he hated the name, he was a Potter. He wouldn't betray his sibling.
"I suppose we must. He is our brother." He said to Lily. He turned to Neville, his grin getting bigger, if that was possible, and told him. "Full moon, I'm going to try the animagus transformation. I've been working on it for two years now."
"I am going to assume that you have no intention of registering this fact, much as your namesake didn't?"
Neville tried to maintain a severe look, but failed utterly. He laughed.
"You should have been in my house, Siri. Alright, how can I help, and Can I watch?"
"Where's the fun in telling? It'll be our little secret." Sirius told him, laughing a little too. "And I'm pretty much done, but thanks all the same. Lily and James are gonna come along, so of course you can too. Should be an adventure." Sirius finished, a twinkle in his eye. You always knew trouble was on the way when a Potter, especially this Potter, had that twinkle in their eye.
"It'll be full moon night, whenever the moon rises. We'll just have to go out early to be perfectly ready. We'll meet out in the Entrance Hall, and go from there." Sirius answered, smiling at the Slytherin comment. Sirius had his devious side, and he certainly wasn't ashamed to admit it.
Lily grinned. "Don't worry about getting out. I'm Prefect, so I can at least use some of my sway to get you out of the building. But once you change, you're on your own."
She smiled at Nev's comment about Siri being Slytherin and remembered the story their father had told often about how HE had almost been a Slytherin. Apparently, having two children in other houses did nothing to drive away form the disappointment. She looked at her brothers again. "Anything else we need? Besides James, of course."
