The Very Pink Diary

"Oh Professor! Potter and Black have added explosives into my cauldron again! I think this calls for a detention!" squawked Severus Snape.

James and Sirius scowled. This was the 3rd time this week Snape had caught them before their prank worked. Things were looking bad. They needed to get him back already. But how? Suddenly, Sirius' eyes flashed mischievously as he glanced at Snape's backpack.

"James! Check out the Snivellus's bag. Looks like he's got himself a diary," Sirius whispered and chuckled evilly behind his cauldron.

"Good job Padfoot. But we're a little far to get it without being noticed. Remus will have to do it," he said. With that, James did some weird sign language across the room to his fellow Marauder, Remus. After he was done with that, Remus had gotten the clue, and was off to take the diary. He got up from his desk, asked if he could get a napkin for his accident at his table, and walked towards Snape. Snape gave him a dirty look as he walked past. On his way back from getting the napkins, his hand slipped in Snape's bag and he grabbed the green diary. He put it in his robe's pockets and walked casual back to his desk.

Once back, he gave the thumbs up signal to James and Sirius. Mission accomplished.

12 minutes later, Potions class was over, and the 4 Marauders walked up to Gryffindor Tower while thinking of what to do with the diary. By the time they reached the portrait of the Fat Lady, they'd come up with the plan:

First read it (Peter's suggestion.)

Next write in it (James suggestion)

Then turn it pink (Sirius' suggestion)

Last give it back to him before dinner (Remus' suggestion)

They all climbed through the hole thinking of what they could add to the diary. They walked with a dreamy look plastered on their faces straight to the dormitories and got straight to work. James read it aloud while Sirius looked up spells to make things pink. Remus was thinking of how to sneak it back into his backpack and Peter was wondering what was for dinner.

"…and I knew from the moment I laid eyes on Potter and his gang of losers that they'd be trouble." James read. He got mad for a second because Snape had called his friends losers, but calmed down because he knew they'd be trouble makers.

"I found it! The spell to make things pink! You just wave your wand in the shape of a heart and say Roseyle whatever the thing you want to turn pink!" Sirius exclaimed.

"I think we can slip it into his pockets during dinner tonight," said Remus.

"I wonder if we'll have that pot ro-," Peter started but James hit him and continued reading.

"I thought I had died and gone to heaven-," he started

"Fat chance," Sirius said.

"heaven when I first saw her. She was so beautiful. That Lily Evans." James finished.

They all gasped and sat in shock for about 20 seconds before Sirius spoke.

"WHAT?!"

"Yeah. I can't believe that he would actually like someone. But then again, everyone likes Lily," James said in a fluffy voice.

"But SNAPE? HAHAHA." Sirius was now rolling on the floor.

That was the end of his diary entries, and it was time for them to write in it. They used a permanent spell on their ink so he couldn't erase it or even tear out the page they write on. This is what they wrote:

Hey Sevvy-

I never knew you felt that way about Lily. Warnings to you, keep your smelly hands off her. She's mine, but you can have Peter.

Jameseepoo.

Dear Snape,

Just so you know, we didn't technically steal this. We borrowed it. Cause you have it back now right? Right. Anyway, you know we love you (GAG) because of all we've done for you.

Remus

-

Hello,

Please don't hurt me. I'm looking forward to eating tonight's pot roast with green beans.

Peter

-

Ugly-

Your ugly. Pink is compliments of me. J

Sirius

PS- Peter, you're a wimp.

-

Hello Sirius,

No I am not.

Peter.

-

Dear Peter,

Why are you fighting with Sirius in this diary?

Remus

-

Hello Remus,

Sirius started it!

Peter

-

Fatty-

Did I?

Sirius

-

Hello Sirius,

Yes, and now I'm hurt, and hungry!

Peter

-

Fatty-

I don't get it.

Sirius

-

Hey guys,

Sirius, stop bothering Peter. Peter, stop that annoying stomach of yours from growling!

James

-

Hello James,

Sorry.

Peter

-

Dear guys,

Why don't we just say all this to each other's faces? I mean, we're all sitting in a circle, approximately 12 inches apart.

Remus

-

Wolfie-

Since when do we use inches? I thought we use the metric system?

Sirius

-

Dear Sirius,

We do. But this is being written by an American writer.

Remus

-

Wolfie-

Oh.

Sirius

-

Hey Peter,

STOP THAT GROWLING!

James

-

Hello James,

I can't! If I don't have food in my system every 10 minutes, it goes haywire!

Peter

-

Dear James,

Please excuse Peter. I know you're annoyed, but there's no reason to start throwing that box at him.

Remus

-

Hey Remus,

Okay fine. Aren't we supposed to be writing to Snivellus?

James

-

Hello James,

Oh yeah.

Peter

-

Ugly-

Hello again. How do you like the new diary? I'd be so happy if I had MY signature in MY diary! Who doesn't want Sirius Black's signature! No one I can think of! I'll give you EXTRA autographs since you're my favorite Slytherin!

SIRIUS BLACK SIRIUS BLACK SIRIUS BLACK SIRIUS BLACK SIRIUS BLACK!!!! 143!

-

Dear Severus,

I feel sorry for you. I thought I'd never do that, but that was just too disturbing.

Remus

-

Snivvy,

Remus is too nice. I think you deserve my autographs everywhere too! WEEEE! *writes name all over the diary*

James

-

Hello ALL,

I'm hungry, about to faint/die. Please, can we steal this another day and continue then?

Peter

And so they did. Sirius then magicked the diary into a bright pink color, but James thought it was incomplete. It needed a few more colors to it. Remus agreed and added a few rainbows here and there with green hearts in each corner. James then added bubbly orange with white polka dotted letters that read, "SNIVELLUS'S TOP SECRET DIARY!"

They then set off for the Great Hall. There, Remus planted the diary into Snape's pockets and walked back to the table.

"I didn't like this prank too much. I thought he'd be more revealing in his diary," James said.

"Yeah me neither. I think we'll have to do something else to him then. This just was not satisfying enough," added Sirius.

Remus agreed and waited for Peter to say something but was to busy piling his plate and stuffing his face to notice a thing that was being said.
