Reviews respond (for chapter 20 - Epilogue):

mysticallove: Hi, anna! So happy you liked the chaper - but I agree - poor kid. Having both Sirius and Buffy as parents - what a nightmare! (Although it probably would be a fun one) As for persons hurthing him...well, they better run. Far. Or just give up. They wouldn't stand a chance. As for the sequel...well, it will have to take awhile, I'm afarid - if I decide to do it at all. We'll see. It depends. On a lot. As for Scabbers/Wormtail - glad I managed to surprise you. I hope everything works out with your story, and I'm glad you passed the finals with flying colours!

airyckah: Hi! Glad you liked it - we'll see if I do a sequel - I'm still not sure, but I'm lending towards it. But it will probably have to wait a long time if I do one.

musicgirl141: So happy you liked it!I thought it fit too!

bella-lover: Hi! I'm so happy you seemed to be enjoying my story! Too bad it's over, neh? As for the sequel - we'll see. I think I'm gonna do one - but it will take awhile if I do. Sorry. But I really want to finish my other stories and the entire Out of the Blue-series before I do...and I'm also thinking of another FF-story after a request from another reviwer/friend of mine (Neville James). So We'll see what happens. Can't promise there will be a sequel, but maybe. So cross your fingers!

The Lady Morgaine: Hi Jules! If I do a sequel, it will probaply start where I left off - in Harry's first year. this is because of several reasons, but one of them has to do with the "threequel" to "Out of the Blue". No sparetime, eh? Know the feeling. I'm happy I added a happy/funny Neville as well. I've always imagined him more than what he is in the books - can't wait to see what JK "wonderwoman" Rowling has planned fore him. Nev would definitely be a lot more outgoing if he would have grown up with his real parents. As for the lack of action - it was kind of the point. Sequels are, as ypu said, suppossed to be happy unless you plan on an angsty/sad ending with lots of tears.

PrudencePiperHalliwell & Kat Hawkins & Buffy-CrazyaboutAngel & Beth: We'll see. Maybe...read my answers to some other reviewers to read more about possible sequel plans. Glad you found it cute/cool/insane!

Siren's Call: So happy you liked it! I was thinking of saving both at first, but it didn't work out. Then I thought baout killing both, but I couldn't do that. So...anyway, glad you liked the result! And I agreeHarry never should have had to grow up with those awful people!(Kill, maim, kill. LOL.) As for sequel, we'll see. Read the answers to the other reviewers if you want to know more about possible future plans for this story!

Chailyn Cole Runewood: Yep, there be Peter. You evil little rat.

Just Me: No problemo! I know the feeling with computer problem - have a "new" one myself now - it's my sisters old one. Anyway, this "new" one also decided to screw up on me. It works now though. Happy you liked the story, and I know I'm evil...sorry. But I couldn't come up with a good plan to have Lily live as well! Unless I had decided to kill Harry instead, but that would be even more evil/unforgiveable, right? As for sequel...again, we'll see. (I seem to say that a lot) Read my answers to some of the other reviewers to read more about my possible plans.


"Okay..." Sirius mumbled for himself from were he was hidden behind a corner. It was almost midnight, and pitched black; the only light came from his wand, and some candles on the walls. "Let's see...balloons - check. Hairdryer - check. Tickling-powder - check." He did a fast check around the corner to see if Angie-pooh was anywhere near him - he wasn't. Sirius snickered for himself. Ever since his three first pranks on the vampire, Angie-pooh seemed to have made it his mission to stay as far away from him as possible.

Sirius got up, and sneaked into the Great Hall, preparing his prank for the oh so not-scary vampire.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

As breakfast came, Angel stepped into the Great Hall with a smile on his face. It seemed like Sissy-boy had finally given up in trying to scare him away - no pranks for three hole days.

"I knew he was going to give it up."

"Hey, Angel, over here!" Buffy called form were she was sitting at faculty-table, a smile on her face. Angel hastily looked to both left and right of her - the Sissy-boy wasn't even there., He smirked.

"And the winner is Angel," he mumbled to himself, as he made his way up to the Slayer.

"Hello, Buffy. Have you seen Sirius today?" He said. 'It doesn't hurt to pretend you like him - after all, he's already lost.'

"Nope," Buffy said. "But I'm sure he'll turn up." She was very relieved that Sirius seemed to have given up on his childish pranking on her ex. She took it as a sign he was prepared to deal with the fact that Angel was her ex - not his concurrent. It seemed like Sirius finally had grown up.

Angel in his turn thought Buffy and Sirius had had a fight, since she didn't seem worried about where the Sissy-boy was. He couldn't have been more pleased.

He brought up his blood-filled cup to his lip, and had just started to take a sip, when he thought he felt a wind blowing against the back of his neck. He turned to Buffy with a frown.

"Is it just me, or is it blowing in here?"

Buffy raised her eyebrows and gave Angel a concerned look.

"Are you okay?"

Angel shrugged, and dismissed his feeling as imagination. If he'd done a backward glance, however, he would have been surprised to see a hairdryer seemingly floating in the air behind him, sending strokes of air at his neck, and his (normally) spiky hair - it was already starting to look weird, pointing in all directions.

Sirius had to hold back a snigger from where he was standing in James' invisibility cloak behind Angel. The first stage of the plan worked fabulous. He brought up the balloons, filled with tickling powder, and let the hairdryer blow a soft wind on them instead of Angel, making them float up in the air, above Angel's head. If the students across the Hall seemed surprised at the balloons sudden appearance, they didn't show it.

Sirius then raised his wand, and whispered a spell under his breath, making the balloons explode soundlessly. The powder fell into Angel's cup of blood, and food, and all over the vampire, finding places on his skin automatically were it would make the most damage - or tickling. Nobody noticed anything. Then, Sirius waited.

Angel suddenly felt a sudden need to move. He squirmed a bit at his chair, and brought up a hand to itch himself in the base of his neck. Buffy gave him another concerned look.

"Angel?"

The vampire gave her a painful smile.

"I'm alright...I'm just a little...itchy," he finished, and started to scratch himself all over. What the hell was going on here? He tried to be discrete at first, but found it impossible, as the itching became more and more irritating. It felt like he had ants in his hair, his neck, his face, his legs, his groin...everywhere! It even felt like they moved inside him. Buffy gave him a shocked and worried look as he stood up, took off his shoes, and started to spin around, scratching himself on all places, like a weird dance.

Buffy started to get a weird suspicion about this. She started to look around after any sign of something un-normal - or Sirius-like, but couldn't find anything, or anyone out of place. Still, she wondered why Sirius hadn't showed up for breakfast - Sirius never missed a meal freely.

She started in shock at Angel, as the places were his skin was bare, started to gain spots of red.

"Angel!"

"I'm...alright," the vampire panted, bouncing around on the place. "I'm just feeling...a bit...itchy."

Buffy's eyes narrowed. She knew Sirius must be doing this.

"GAH!" The vampire let out a scream of frustration, and all the students turned to look at him, as he started to tear his clothes off, doing everything to get closer to that itching, removing it.

"Angel, stop!" Buffy ordered, trying to let the vampire understand he was making a fool out of himself if he continued to dance around and undress himself in front of everybody.

Suddenly, Buffy heard a snicker from the back wall. She took a fast step in the direction the sound had come from, and soon her fingers found a soft material. Buffy pulled of Sirius the invisibility cloak. The prank-master in question was laughing silently, tears of enjoyment streaming down his face. He hastily came to a stop, however, as Buffy hit him - quite hard - above the face.

"SIRIUS!" She shrieked. "Remove whatever charm you've done on Angel, now!"

"I - can't!" Sirius said between snorts of laughter. "It's - tickling-powder!" As if to prove his point, he brought up the hairdryer, and an un-used bag of tickling powder, blowing it all on the dancing vampire, who immediately started to dance around even more, weird sounds coming form his throat. He surely looked ridiculous from were he was moving, read spots all over him, hair and clothes askew.

The student-body was in an uproar of laughter. Buffy felt a sudden need to strangle her boyfriend, but she knew she would probably regret that later, so instead she took angel by the arm, and led him down the Hall, trying to ignore his sudden jerking and scratching of body-parts from now and then. It looked like he was a marionette-doll, moved by someone holding the threads, making him do weird jumping movements.


A/N: There! Hope you enjoyed it...I thought it was a little funny - a little. I'm not so pleased as I could have been, but, oh, well. Anyway, it sounded/looked really funny in my head, but less so on paper. Anyway, review!
