"Sexy Love Letters"

DISCLAIMER: Don't own anything!


Writing sexy love letters to Professor Dumbledore, signed by 'Your Kitten' is not an ethical means of skipping Transfiguration class, no matter how effective it may prove.

James Potter banged his head on his desk. He could not believe that McGonagall had given him detention for writing a love letter, ostensibly from her, to Professor Dumbledore. It worked, had it not? He and the Marauders had been taking bets since their first year at Hogwarts on when Dumbledore and McGonagall would finally get it on, and when Sirius had bet two tickets to see Puddlemere United play in the World Cup, James had known that he had to take matters into his own hands.


Dear Albus,

For years, I have debated on whether or not to tell you that I want you to warm my bed at night, that I want you to take me hard against the walls, that I want you to make me scream your name. I have finally gathered up all of the Gryffindor courage that I possess in order to tell you that I love you.

-Your Kitten

An owl had soared through the open window of the Transfiguration classroom during his class right before lunch. It landed on McGonagall's desk, and his professor had taken the note from the owl before giving it a Ginger Newt in lieu of an Owl Treat. When she had opened the note, however, her cheeks flushed bright red before she dropped the note on the desk.

"Class dismissed!" she managed to say, before collapsing in her chair, picking up the note to peruse it again. He and his classmates had quickly gathered up their things and bolted from the room, not giving McGonagall a chance to change her mind. James, however, had snuck back to the Transfiguration classroom, under the guise of collecting his forgotten Transfiguration text, after retrieving his cloak from Gryffindor Tower. When he had snuck back into the classroom, he let out a loud "whoop!" upon seeing Dumbledore and McGonagall locked in a passionate embrace. As they quickly broke apart and faced him, James had failed to notice that his Invisibility Cloak had pooled around his feet.

"Mr. Potter! Explain yourself!" Professor McGonagall exclaimed.

It was at this point that James realised that his Invisibility Cloak was no longer covering him.

"Oops?" he tried.

"Oops, indeed, Mr. Potter! I presume that you are the one who wrote that letter?" she paused as he nodded, then forged on, "Detention with me tonight at seven. Bring a quill, you will be writing lines," she finished.

"You are dismissed, Mr. Potter," Dumbledore said with a wave of his hand, "I do believe your friends are waiting you to join them for lunch."

Indeed, Sirius, Peter, and Remus were standing outside the open door of the Transfiguration classroom, gaping at the scene before them.


As much as James had not wanted to picture his Headmaster and Head of House in those positions when he was writing that letter, he knew that he would have to go past the point of no return in order for the letter to work. Moreover, it did work, even though he had gotten detention for it. At least he had also gotten those tickets to the World Cup!
