To ‘the smartest bloke I know’, I highly advise you to consume all of these as fast as you possibly can or keep them away from the boys. I know I get you chocolate every year but this time I tried to switch it up a bit. If you keep eating all that chocolate you’ll be as big as a house, or maybe just end up like Ol’ Sluggy and his crystallized pineapple (still surprised he hasn’t had a heart attack in class). Besides, fruit is good for your heart right?
- Just looking out for your health, McKinnon
Laughing at the note, Remus smiled at the package. How Marlene knew his weakness for chocolate covered fruit, he would never know. His only hope, as well as a prayer was that she never found out and used it against him.
"I’m sure that Frank would figure it out if I consistently chirped into his ear. But I’ll just abate my curiosity by imagining the most ridiculous of hazing situations."
"This is Frank we are talking about, he’ll probably just think he has suddenly gained the ability to befriend animals." Remus then had a horrifying thought of a stag, dog and rat perpetuating that thought, and he paled sightly. "Though I am curious as to what sort of hazing situations you think of."
To The Remus Lupin,
I’m so so sorry if you get this late, or if your fellow dorm mates get to it before you do. And I know I already told you what I was going to get you but I do hope you like the sweater and scarf and you act surprised anyway. Frank called it an ‘ugly Christmas sweater’ but I think it’s quite cute. And I know how much you Gryffindors like your red and gold. Hope you have a lovely holiday Remus and that these help keep you nice and toasty warm during these chilly days.
And I know all about what Frank made you do for me and I just wanted to say thank you so much. It was beyond sweet of you. And I love the book.
Sending love and best wishes,
Remus loved the scarf, but he absolutely adored the sweater. There was nothing ugly about it, it was perfect, and he had every intention of wearing it as much as possible, especially in the dorm when Frank was around.
"AH yes, your secret boys only club. Well what If told you I was amenable to being turned into a bird? It’s always been my secret passion to be turned into a canary."
"People would try to keep you if I turned you into a canary. What am I suppose to say to Frank when he comes looking for you? That you flew the coop? I don’t think his first impression would be that you sprouted wings and flew off."
"Well, I’ll admit, now I’m curious… Is there any Gryffindor hazing? You lot seem like type to have traditions dating back to Merlin on how to test the bravery of a new student." She grinned.
"I think just getting up and going to class counts as bravery, um, not that I know of, but then again I might have slept through any sort of initiation program. I am sure something dangerous and harrowing, as well as a touch foolish. Now joining the Marauders on the other hand is a whole other thing. I’d tell you but then I’d have to change you into a bird."
"Oh no!!" She made a horrified face. "I don’t think I could marry someone with a badger tattoo on their privates, but I have respect and a fair amount of concern for anyone who chooses to."
"Well, here’s to hoping you’ve either seen the tattoo prior or they fully disclose that sort of thing up front. If not that is going to be a horrible discovery come the honeymoon."
"That’s the beauty of being underestimated so frequently… We can be total freaks and no one is any the wiser." She gave him an exaggerated wink. :There’s rumors going around that several Puffs once actually did get Badger tattoos on their unmentionables, if so, I feel bad for their spouses."
"I knew it, Hufflepuff is known for it’s kindness, and kinks, I should be more surprised. Well I would feel worse for their spouses, if those tattoos can morph and bite."
"Oh Remus, you think that’s bad… If you actually get sorted into Hufflepuff, the tattoo is a bit of a more.. questionable area." she wiggled her eyebrows suggestively
"Good thing I wasn’t sorted then, and that the honorary don’t have to have the same location. That will be incredibly hard to explain should I take anyone to bed with me. Should have known you Hufflepuffs had a naughty secret."
Lucinda snickered “Of course I will worry about it! Its your bloody book Remus. I can’t just damage it and give it back to you.”
"Luci it’s just a book, it can’t replace you, so if anything happens, don’t worry, okay? It’s not worth you being upset, I am giving it to you in the hopes that you will enjoy it, not that it will worry you."
"I think a large Badger tattoo on your bicep should do the trick… Show’s that you’ve got the dedication to join our little group."
"Oh that is brilliant, see if I can get one that moves, so I can have a flag of black and yellow waving in the background. Man, you puffs have some intense dedication hazing."
