Ok, so this is my SECOND Harry Potter fic. I did this cause all my other angsty stories were starting to get to me. XP Although, I do have some not as humorous chapters planned, it's still mostly humor. Hope you enjoy!
DISCLAIMER!!! I own nothing!!! It all belongs to Miss. J.K.
"Sirius, I think you're insane."
Sirius looked up at James. They had only been back at Hogwarts for a week and so far their third year had started off pretty boring. Till now. "What? No I'm not! What makes you say that?"
James pointed down to Sirius' plate where he had been sculpting his food into various figures and buildings. He even made a replica of a slytherin student (identifiable by the peas adorning the figure) being beheaded by a surprisingly well crafted guillotine.
"Oh, this? It's not insane, it's ART!"
James just shook his head and grinned. "Yeah, well, your 'art' is still insane." Sirius scowled at him. "How would you know? You got some kind of list of what's insane?" James looked thoughtful for a moment. He then broke out into a grin that Sirius would have commented on as being 'insane' had he not been so worried.
"Not yet." James then quickly stood up from the table and took off. "Hey!" Sirius immediately stood and ran after him ignoring the confused looks of the remaining two Marauders. He followed him all the way back to the Gryffindor common room where he found James holding a long piece of parchment. He looked over his shoulder and saw written at the top of the paper in James' big curly letters,
SYMPTOMS OF INSANITY
1.) Playing with your food and calling it 'art'
Sirius shook his head. "You're actually going to make a list of the signs of someone being insane?" James shook his head vigorously. "Yep. I only got the one now, but I'm sure I'll find more." He gave Sirius a pointed look.
He smirked. "Here, I'll add one too." He stole the parchment away from James before he had a chance to protest and quickly added his own symptom.
2.) Making a list of symptoms that most likely apply to yourself as well.
"Are you calling ME insane!?" James looked at Sirius shocked. Sirius rolled his eyes. "Duh. Come on, I may do some insane things, but you've got your fare share of insane instances too." "Like what?" "Like the time you added that extra ingredient in potions class because it was Lilly's favorite color." Sirius thought for a moment. "Actually, if we're making a list, that should be on it too."
James tries to grab the paper back, but found himself being held at arms length while Sirius wrote.
3.) Basing your ingredients list off your obsession's favorite color.
James blushed furiously as Sirius howled with laughter. "Oh yeah, well what about the time you tried dog food to see if it would taste different to you because of your animagus?" Sirius stopped laughing as James stole the list back and began writing.
4.) Eating dog food. For ANY reason!
Now it was Sirius' turn to blush as James laughed. "Give it time James. I'm sure there'll be more of you on that list than me!" James stopped laughing and the two friends mock glared at each other, each challenging the other.
That night, Peter and Remus returned to the room shared by all four Marauders to find a strange piece of parchment hanging on the back wall.
Perhaps this was going to be an interesting year after all…
Love it? Hate it? I'd love to know! Also, if you have any suggestions for 'symptoms' I'd be very grateful! I have a couple planned out, but I absolutely adore input!
