Disclaimer: J.K Rowlings owns every bloody thing and I own.the keyboard, which I am using to type this. Wait.that belongs to my parental until actually. I do have rights to my poor characterization. Even though it is far from good I have grown attached to it as well as my little plot.

Author's Note: Ok, I am done with Order of the Phoenix, very upset to say the least. I won't reveal any spoilers here just in case some of you are still reading. I have decided to go against canon a bit *ok, let me just throw a few chapters of OotP out of the window* and continue with this because it is my baby and I have dreamed up the ending a million times. This will continue until the ending feels right. This chapter goes out to Snuffles, forever. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~


Arabella tip toed into the room and spotted Sirius' bed; the curtains draw tight around it and heard his muffled snores. Reminding herself to look up the anti-snoring charm she headed over towards the bed and sat on the corner as she drew back a curtain. Sirius' head was under the pillow and she could see his hair had come loose in the nigh. She grinned as she looked at him, it was just so perfect. Everything was perfect. Glancing around the room she saw the mirror and caught her reflection. Her dress was wrinkled and her hair a mess. She tapped Sirius on the shoulder, no reply.

"Sirius?" She whispered in a small voice. No reply. "Sirius." Her voice was a bit louder but he still lay asleep. She let her hand travel through his hair and she leaned down to kiss his brow. He stirred and yawned as he rolled over onto his back, opening his eyes slowly while his vision blurred until it adjusted and he saw Arabella leaning over him. "Hi."

"Hi" he replied half asleep he pushed himself up so he leaned on his shoulders and pecked Arabella on the lips, neither caring about morning breath. Suddenly without warning Sirius grabbed Arabella and starting to tickle her, she rolled onto the bed in a fit of giggles.

"Sirius!" She yelped through her giggles, her legs pulling up towards her chest as she rolled in her fit of laughter. "Stop it." Her dress twisted around her and she caught of glance of his face from between her hair, which at this point was draped, around her head. He had a broad smile on and found it hilarious himself. He leaded over her and pecked her on the nose. Arabella saw her chance and rolled him over, pinning him on the bed. A playful look went across her face, her eyebrows raised in humor as she attacked with tickles. Sirius chuckled in good humor before rolling her over and pinning her. A look of joy passed between them. They were young, happy, had great friends, and in love. He kissed her again on the nose and smiled, blowing hair off of her forehead. Arabella's eyelashes batted over and over again; Sirius brushed the rest of the hair out of her eyes, his hand lingering on her cheek. Then they felt their childhood melting away, staring at each other with realization where they were and what they were doing. Sirius paused and without an utterance took in Arabella's eyes in which they carried on a conversation and he slowly removed his hand as if to agree.

"Lets set a date." Sirius said as he sat up, pulling her up with him. "Day after classes end?" He pulled open the draw next to his bed and drew out a pair of sock and pulled them on.

"Sirius?" Arabella said, "Are you nuts?" She hopped off of them bed, her skirt rustling behind her.

"I don't think so. I believe I was classified as a loon why?" He smiled slyly, hiding his fear. Fear that she had changed her mind. His voice became sober and he throat contracted. "Don't you want to marry me?" He looked down at his feet; he couldn't look her in the eyes, not at the moment.

Arabella studied him, taking in the paleness he had turned and the way he rolled his thumb against the palm of his hand. "Look at me Sirius." She felt unsure of herself as if on ice that could crack at any moment. He turned at looked at her, seeing his reflection in her eyes. "Sirius, I love you and I'm marrying you but I would like to have some more time. I want to be able to play the happy bride-to-be for a while, make all my friends jealous. Let's just wait a while." She took his hand and their fingers interlaced. "For me."

Sirius nodded and squeezed her hand in agreement. "Anything for you."

"That's why I love you." She leaned over and kissed his nose. "Now what do you say to breakfast and then we can go onto the grounds or something?"

"Fine with me, just let me put something decent on." He began to rummage through his draws; pulling out jeans and a sweater his mum had given him. He turned and stared at Arabella, once again reminded that she was still in her dress.

"Find something interesting?" Her hands rested on her hips.

"You are going to change, aren't you?" He gestured at her apparel.

"I should, shouldn't I?" Her face twisted a bit and she lifted the hem up a bit to see how worn it now looked. Sirius nodded. "I'll see you in a bit then." She glanced at him, catching the future a bit. Him standing there, picking out his clothes. She had always envisioned her future in some exotic location, wandering in new lands but this was a better adventure. Sirius was an adventure.

Sirius noticed her still standing in the room; a look of curiosity came over him. "Bella?" She snapped out of a trance.

"Oh, right. See you in a few." She turned, already reaching pack for the zipper on her dress as she stumbled out. He smiled, nothing was wrong and everything was right.

I know, very short. Don't kill me though, why you ask? I just started to write again, feel very guilty about going against the sacred canon, am very sad about a death, and feel torn. Just as a reminder, this will continue the plot I planned on, not changing to include new canon, which would mess everything up.

I feel the need to advertise here as well. I have learned how to make music videos! This is great but I can't send them to anyone unless they have a very fast pc. If anyone knows how to load them onto a web page, has a web page I can post at, or any experience please tell me in your review. Also I have wanted to start my own little website. If anyone wants to work together or lend me a hand I would owe you my life.

Even though I haven't been here in a while I wouldn't forget you guys, my readers. Here are my thanks;

Jerlayne (Jerlayne_0021@yahoo.com): Hi! Thanks. Remus should be next in character rotation.

Interested Reader: Aww! Thank you! I know, James should share his feelings, it might just come back to bit him in the bum.

Liz (PALCardinals@aol.com): They will be longer once I know where I am going, at the moment I am canon torn.

Alexandria: Thanks; I try to change the cliché.

Kristawen: Hi Krista! Hope you are ok, Sam, Erin and I didn't see you the other day. As always thank you.

Lamina Court: James is taking a bit of plunge into darkness *reminds me of somebody in OotP*. I plan on updating as much as possible in the summer, which had finally come!

Dreams of Reality: I know! Remus has a bit of nerve in chapter 4, it'll work out though.

tta: You are always thinking along the same lines as I am. I think you are pulling a Dumbledore/Snape/Voldemort on me, reading my mind now are you. Well it's king of sick and twisted in there so watch out. Thanks tta.

andrea: lol, Thanks, sometimes you just have to let your computer have it. *Gently tells her pc how wonderful it is, begging it not to freeze*

Bon: It's kind of hidden in there, I'll clear it up in 2 more chapters.

Fawnnwv: Don't worry about it! I haven't written in a long time.

Butterfly Queen: Thank you! I try to write from every characters pov. I read fan fiction all the time and only find Lily's pov too and that made me feel that my stories should be written from every direction. I try to think like the guys, a bit hard but it differs from the girls.

Blank: Thanks, I've had a few people ask for more Remus and I am fairly sure he is next in the character rotation so it should be the next chapter.

Arwen: Thanks Alyssa. You know it means the world to me.

Corvixen: Oh! Thank you so much. I remember the first fanfic I read and it was one of my favorites "Gilded Lily" by Mandy. That had to be about 3 years ago. I hope I made a good fan fiction experience for you.

Blank: I didn't write because I was out of the state, had a few family deaths and had school (tons of regents, in other words this was a kind of O.W.L year for me). I'm back now.

Sarah (lily_04@hotmail.com): Thanks so much!

Blank: Ok, if you don't like it that's fine with me, we all have the right to voice our opinion. I hope you find something you like on the site.

Erin: I know! School is the epicenter of all evil, unless it is Hogwarts (except if it is under Umbridge that is). I'll let you know.

jtwy: Thanks!

Millie: Thanks! I hope you liked the rest.

Lady Weasley: Thank you so much! I started that when I was 12 and very unclear. I like how you changed it. I started this first and then moved onto darker things, "Except the Past" for examples (I went onto the Sugarquill with that one). I plan on reworking the first 10 chapters or so and I will keep what you said in mind.

Phoebe: Thanks!

Dolphingurl: Lol! I thought so too; I was in a bit of a sarcastic mood at the time.

sparkli chick : Thanks! Thank you! Thank you again! (There we go, all three!) Thank you! So many things are going to happen! It makes my fingers hurt just thinking about how long it is going to take to type. I plan on having very athletic fingers. lol

tatertot (sgrkt@aol.com): Opps! I only thank them here because I don't get everyone's e-mail and some people don't sign in.

Kyna Fairge: No you are 100% correct. It was a phrasing mistake. I'm glad people are reading my stuff so carefully that they pick this stuff up. I'm going to fix it in rewrites.

Brtfly: Aww! Thanks!

Starlight: You ask and I'll deliver.

Faries: I love getting new readers. Thank you so much! I hope you continue.

HPChick007: You got it. From the dates my pc has you only had to wait a few hours. (Except if it takes some time to transfer).

Ok, there we go. See all back to normal. If you want update e-mails please leave your e-mail. I'll start those again after this chapter. Please review. All opinions are welcomed, positive, negative, indifferent, everything.
