Summery: Lily and James go tell the other Marauders about Harry. Of course they don't know its Harry yet.
Disclaimer: Unfortunately on my birth certificate it does not say J.K. Rowling. Therefore, I do not own the Harry Potter books or any character in them. Duh!
Lily gasped staring at the results. Positive. She was pregnant. She thought James would be happy too although they weren't sure if they wanted to raise a child with the war going on. James was an Auror and was faced with danger during seventy-five percent of his work time. Lily was an Unspeakable, and worked with many dangerous substances. Both of them were members of the Order of the Phoenix and so Lily did almost as much fighting as James. The world was no place to raise a child, but she was pregnant so that was that.
"Lily! I'm home!" James hurried through the front door looking for his wife. He had had a tiring day at the office, but luckily there were only false alarms about the Death Eaters so he hadn't had to fight at all. James found Lily seated on the couch deep in thought.
"Lily? Sweetie, is something wrong?" James inquired.
"Oh James!" Lily looked up nervously. She had to tell him, but how? What if he didn't want a child? What if he thought it was someone else's kid and left her? She couldn't deal with that!
"Lily? Are you ok?"
"I'm fine. Just leave me alone."
"Oh did my Lilykins have a hard day at work?"
"Shut up James. Anyways I thought Lilykins was Sirius's name for me."
"He's my best mate. I can use his terms. And what is your problem anyways? Since when do you care about me stealing his stuff anyways?" James snapped growing angrier by the minute. He didn't know why but he was. "Do you want me to say copyright Sirius Black a.k.a. Padfoot and fellow Marauder after I use it? If you don't have anything nice to say LEAVE!"
"Well I'm sorry. I'm just trying to tell you that I'm PREGNANT!" Lily yelled at him before turning and storming out of the room.
"Fine have it your way!" James yelled. Then he paused, thinking. Wait a minute… Then at lightning speed he reached out and grabbed Lily's arm. "What did you say?"
Lily turned around and looked at him. "I'm pregnant."
"You mean you have a baby growing in your tummy?" James finally managed to get out.
"Well not exactly in my stomach, but yes."
"You mean as in I'm going to be a father?" James asked.
"Erm yes." This was just what she was afraid of. James was not taking this well at all. He could barely speak for Merlin's sake!
Suddenly James' face broke out in the biggest smile Lily had ever seen. He took Lily and spun her around the room singing, "I'm gonna be a daddy! There's gonna be a Prongs, Jr!"
Lily laughed. "It could be a Lily, Jr., you know."
"Nuh-uh. It's gonna be a Prongsie Jr. Let's name him James!"
"No way. Hogwarts does NOT need two James Potters. It would probably finish it off," Lily answered.
"Nope two James Potters would ensure the survival of Hogwarts forever!" James yelled. "Lily, we have to tell Moony and Wormtail and Padfoot!"
"Not tonight please." Lily sighed.
"Please?" James begged making puppy dog eyes at Lily.
She sighed. "Fine. But Sirius does the eyes better."
"No duh. He's a dog."
Lily and James walked over to the fireplace and took some Floo Powder and threw it into the fireplace and stepped in with a "Sirius Black's house!" Personally, James wanted to Apparate, but Lily told him that in a pregnancy booklet she got it said it was too dangerous to Apparate when pregnant, something to do with being squeezed through air could be potentially dangerous for an unborn child. Also, if splinching occurred, it could kill the kid. Personally, James thought that spinning at a hundred miles an hour through fireplaces and maybe coming out at a Death Eater's house just as dangerous, but Lily refused to Apparate so whatever.
Lily and James popped out of the fireplace in Sirius's living room to be greeted by a shout of "Jamsie-Poo! Lilyflowerkins! What a scrumdiddlyumptious suprprise!"
Lily smiled wryly at Sirius. "James and I have some news for you."
Lily had been hoping to ease it out slowly, but James jumped in. "We're gonna have a Prongsie Jr.!"
Sirius stared and then burst out laughing. Lily looked at him a bit offended by the fact that she was going to have to endure nine freaking months of pregnancy amusing.
"James is going to be a father!" Sirius snorted. "Ha! James is gonna have to give Prongsie Jr. the sex talk! And give him advice on how to not under any circumstances fall in love with psychotic redheads who hate him. And that werewolves are the coolest thing that hit the planet. And illegal Animagi are the second coolest thing! And what if he is better at Quiddich than you James? That would kill you!"
Lily looked at Sirius. "Umm James. This is why I don't want Sirius to be our child's godfather. He'll scar him or her for life!"
"Me. A godfather? Seriously?" Sirius interrupted his list of why James would be the world's best father to stare at him.
"No. I'm not being serious. I gave up imitating you in second year." James said.
Lily gave James a look. "I'm not even going to ask why you had an urge to imitate him." James blushed. "But Sirius, I think bring a godfather would be good for you. You see, James and I can't prevent you from ruining our kid so we are giving you permission to somewhat scar our kid so no one can get you put in Azkaban for it."
Sirius got down on his knees. "Thank you so much my dear Lilyprettyflower and Prongsiepoo for this amazing honor!" He got up and began to skip around the room.
"Okay." Lily said. "We are going to see Remus and Peter now. We need a break from your craziness."
"Please may I come?" Sirius begged. "I haven't seen Mooney and Wormtail in forever!"
"Fine Sirius." James said. "But let me and Lily tell our news not you."
