A/N okay I revised this a lot where it has to do with max because he was boring me. so now here is the new and improved max. he is a lot sexier, a bigger player, shorter, skinner, has dark hair and Lodessa is defiantly more attracted to him. These changes, particularly the physical ones, are a result of my deciding on a new model of him. Toby, the lead signer of the KGB. okay here goes my little plug of the KGB. they are an awesome band out of the east bay in california. they're upbeat, kinda..well really poppy but REALLY good. Toby is their lead singer and as I said my new basis for Max...for months I was debating basing Sirius on him but then I's have to make him a he-slut and i didn't want to. thus there was no toby previously in the story. So if you want to know what max looks like, go to the KGB's site (thekgbrocks.com) and if you want to know what I mean when i talk about him voice go out and get their music. Now I may continue with the story but I may have to do this again later



Xenia Karkorov, Lily Evans, and Imogen Snape; Klesix, as they called themselves, were sitting on the lawn one fine autumn afternoon. Lily was busy picking the petals off of flowers, in hopes of learning that Remus liked her. Somehow, she seemed to believe that, if she only did this enough, it would somehow make him like her. On her right side was a pile of "he loves me" petals, and on her left was a pile of "he loves me not" ones, and Lily was starting to disappear behind them, as they had grown so large as to be up to her chin when she was sitting down.
"Lily, this is getting pathetic already. It's nice that you're keeping your muggle customs, but I'm pretty sure that, in the muggle world, they don't keep making more flowers when they pick all of the ones that are around" Imogen pointed out.
"That's just because they can't" Lily retorted.
"Do you know who is absolutely, drop dead, gorgeous" Xenia exclaimed.
"What did you say?"Lily asked.
"I said: Do you know who is absolutely, drop dead, gorgeous?"
"That has nothing to do with what we are talking about".
"Gilderoy".
"What are you talking about?"
"Gilderoy Lockhart. He's just the best looking boy in the school!"
Imogen laughed incredulously, "He's a bleeding idiot!" She pointed out.
"He's five times as handsome as anyone else" Xenia continued, unphased.
"Xenia" Lily broke in, "A few months ago he asked Professor McGonagall what transfiguration was. He blew up half the dungeon, during potions, because he accidentally used the wrong ingredients. He asks Professor Binns about pop culture. Instead of having a brain he just has a mechanism for producing stupid comments. Remember in divination when he asked Professor Trelawny what the death card meant! then there was that time when he was supposed to be a beater in quiddich and he forgot the club! That boy is as brainless as a goldfish...no wait, make that algae."
"Oh by the way" Imogen added, "Yesterday he asked Professor McGonagall if changing something back to it's original form was still transfiguration."
"So? What's your point? Everybody knows Gilderoy's a ditz and that all he thinks about is himself" Xenia said.
"Well you were expressing an interest in him and i thought you ought to be reminded who he is"
"I said he was attractive, i'd like to snog him, gaze at him lustfully, use him as an arm ornament. None of this required brains."
"Xenia, he may be the only boy on the planet dense enough not to know to comply to your whims. I know it seems impossible but..."
"I only said he was cute",

Meanwhile, on the other side of the castle...

"Did you see Lucius parading Gladiola around, trying to make me jealous" Narcissa sneered to Lodessa.
"He's just jealous because you hooked up with Romulus over the holiday" Lodessa replied.
"I mean, does he think i could ever be jealous of that....thing!"
"He doesn't even pretend to like her"
"Well. I mean who could, she's so- oh hello Parkinson!" Narcissa quickly cut herself off as Gladiola Parkinson approached them. gladiola was a not very attractive girl, who somehow reminded one of a dog. Right now she looked extremely eager to talk to the other girls, "Guess what" she said, "Lucius just lent me his charms notes"
Narcissa looked at her with a look of disgust on her face. Just then, in walked Lucius and his friend Max. they made a striking pair; both were slim and attractive but in many ways opposite. Lucius was of about average height, with a pretty pale face that was almost feminine and the lightest of blonde hair. His sneer proclaimed him proud, and this impression was accurate. Max was shorter than lucius, and weighed probably only 10 or 20 ponds more than the girls. His brown hair matched his eyes, which were often hidden behind large sunglasses. Friendly, outgoing and charismatic, it was as if somehow the energy and attractiveness of a dozen people had been compressed in this tiny almost half a person. Max smiled charmingly toward Lodessa, and Lodessa felt herself melting under his gaze. Determine to play it cool, lodessa was determined not to succumb to the desire to go over to him. Gazing across the room, she said, "Let's not go over to the boys"
"Why" Narcissa enquired, "It's obvious that Max already likes you. He's probably going to ask you out soon".
"Of course. The battle is already won" Narcissa looked confused, "Let's go flirt with Severus and Igor".
"Why? Why would anyone what to do that?" Narcissa exclaimed, looking disdainfully at Severus' long crooked nose.
"Come on...It will drive the boys nuts".
Considering this, Narcissa became extremely willing to engage in the activity proposed.

Meanwhile, across the castle...

Imogen and Lily were still sitting stunned. Xenia was still chatting happily, "You know Lily, your habit of picking flowers to see if Remus likes you is rather foolish..."
"Hey girls, mind if I sit with you; Sirius and James have detention...again"
"No of course not Remus, we'd love to have you...wouldn't we Lily?" Xenia said, smiling at Lily.
Remus went to sit down and then noticed the piles of flower petals, "Uh...what's with the flowers?" he asked.
"Nothing!" Lily said, turning red.
Remus looked puzzled, and the girls giggled. he ran his hands through his brown hair and waited for them to calm down.
"Guess what we were discussing just before you came?" Lily said maliciously, trying to get back at Xenia for embarrassing her, "Gilderoy!"
"Yes I think he's simply the most beautiful boy I've ever seen." Xenia gushed. Lily looked crestfallen, " He's so hot!"
Remus looked at the girls, wondering why they were acting so strangely.

Meanwhile, across the castle...

"Hi Karkorov" Lodessa purred in Igor's ear. He gave a little jump and looked as if he was about to pass out. "Hey Snape" she added in a sultry tone.
Severus looked up at Lodessa in such a way as to say, 'you are disturbing my chess game, go away!" Lodessa felt slightly disconcerted by this; she resolved to correct the problem. She leaned over the table and reached out to brush a strand of Severus' hair out of his face. He glared at her, a little confused, and asked, "Is there something you want?".
"I just thought I'd come over and see what you boys were doing" she replied, giggling a little. Igor was busy staring at her and knocked a few of the chess pieces off the board. He reddened, and moved to pick them up.
"Oh let me do that!" Lodessa interjected, as she bent down to pick the pieces up herself. She glanced over her shoulder and found that Severus was still not paying attention to her. 'This will not do at all!' She thought to herself. Significantly unnerved she forgot completely about the boys across the room, and became completely absorbed with trying to attract Severus.

Meanwhile, across the castle...

"So Imie, are you going to play quiddich with us on Saturday?" Remus asked Imogen.
"I'm always up for quiddich" She replied.
"Oh my..." Xenia exclaimed, "he is so dreamy!"
Gilderoy Lockhart was making his way towards the castle and chose this minute to trip over his robe and fall down.
"Dreamy? Yeah, I always find tripping over one's own robe extremely dreamy" Lily said sarcastically.
Remus smiled, " You know Xenia..." he laughed, "he is one of the enemy."
"Come off it" Xenia argued, " He wouldn't hurt a fly and you know it. Where is the evil in him?"
"It's in his blood" Remus replied.
"Please! You know there's not a grain of truth to that. I'm nothing like Igor and we're twins! Imie and Severus couldn't be any more different if they tried! You hang out with us and our brothers are part of the mafia"
"When you get mad like that I'm not so sure you aren't evil as well- I mean never mind...but they even look the same".
"No that's not true" Lily interrupted,"he's prettier than she is".
"It's true. She's frightfully jealous of him" Imogen agreed.
They all began to laugh heartily.

Meanwhile, across the castle...

Narcissa could see Lucius seething in jealousy, and regretting his pitiful attempt to make her jealous. She smiled to herself, but then she heard her brother. She always heard him long before she saw him. He had come in and was chatting with the flock of girl that had gathered around him. He left them and walked towards her, Narcissa sighed.
"Hey Sis" He grinned. He thought this a rather witty nickname since it incorporated both part of her name and her relationship to him. Narcissa gritted her teeth and turned to face him. One could easily see why the siblings were extremely popular with the opposite sex. Both had the same bright blue eyes, smooth ivory skin, and shiny blonde hair. In short, they were both exquisitely beautiful. But the resemblance was marred by their different personalities, which were now represented in his grin and her frown. Narcissa rolled her eyes and said, "What is it Gilderoy?"
