Oh yeah, I wouldn’t want to miss out on that. Surely they understand the importance of sleep. It’s almost as important as food!

image

I don’t think they concern themselves much with the boundaries of personal concern, but we can hope so, yes? How are you doing with the beginning of the year?

alittledoeinthemeadowes:

No one shall hear of it from me, I assure you. Besides, I’m in the same boat as you. I’m not going to judge, I just would be grateful if you didn’t mention anything about my slight obsession with monkey bars or anything like that. I think it’s good that you can find that side, some people just can;t. Fun is important, no matter what anyone says. Well the anything you’re having trouble with, I’d be more than happy to help you out. I think it’s mostly in control, though I’m not sure my need to have every page in my text books marked with some sort of notes is in control just yet.

image

I am grateful to you for the discretion, though I suppose if we mutually agree not to share with others about our interest we won’t know if anyone else is interested. Without fun, people can be rather dull, too focused on tasks loses a sort of perspective. Thank you for being willing to help with studying, having another companion is a huge relief. I do hope you keep that compulsive note taking in control.

peteypettigrews:

Of course that’s what I’m doing. Making up for lost calories plus a few extra for the winter in case I accidentally fall into hibernation mode.

image

Well try not to start the hibernation process too early, we have much excitement coming up. You know the other two won’t let you sleep for long.

alittledoeinthemeadowes:

Me too. I hope it can, I mean it’s meant to be safe here. I want to believe that it’s going to be safe here, even though I’m already feeling the opposite about it. You could always go back to one of the nice muggle parks and swing on the monkey bars, to make up for it. I won’t tell a soul. But yes, your group of friends and you do get up to some trouble. The best kind of trouble though. Not understanding something is so frustrating, I know what you mean. If you ever want any help with a subject, I’d be happy to give you a hand. I mean, I’m hardly perfect at everything. But I did learn the majority of the course work over the summer break. I’m a bit of a control freak with work, I know.

image

I would be grateful if you wouldn’t out any future endeavors I might have with childhood amusement sets, and hopeful omit any judgement. Especially since you recommended the activity. We do seem to manage to find the more interesting side that Hogwarts has to offer, and at least if nothing else, it gives the school gossip, something to talk about. I would be happy to request assistance Miss Meadowes, how kind of you to offer. It’s okay to be a control freak, so long as you have that in control.

T’ain’t no big thing | Sirius & Remus

siriuslytempted:

Sirius groaned as Remus teased him about the dancing. It had been too good and peaceful to last. “You like my sexy dancing, Moony?” he asked, attempting to turn the teasing round and back on Remus as he started moving more of his unpacking. “Sure you don’t want to join in? It makes it way more fun, I promise.”

image

"Oh no no, we are not changing the topic, you were dancing, and singing. I remember quite distinctly. My memory has not failed me yet, Pads. By all means continue." He laughed and the idea of joining and shook his head, rather enthusiastically. "I don’t even have two left feet, when it comes to dancing, formal or otherwise. Never really learned the hook of it."

peteypettigrews:

Hogwarts food is so good, I’ve just been eating since I got here.

image

Well I am sure you are merely replenishing stores lost during the summer vacation, correct?

lilyievans:

Well, just give me some warning, yeah? Then I can make sure I’m far, far away when whatever it is happens. Oh, I’m sure classes will be more stressful than fun by the end of the year. 

image

That seems fair, and isn’t too unreasonable of a task, it might help if I can use a code word or something. That and for other reasons I can work in my favor should the need arise. I am sure they won’t ease up due to all that is happening outside the halls. Not that I would want to have anything less.

T’ain’t no big thing | Sirius & Remus

siriuslytempted:

Sirius wasn’t sure what to think of the hug and Remus’ reaction to his question but he didn’t push it. He stayed suspicious though as he took Remus’ change of topic and looked at the slight mess he’d been creating. “Of course, best way to do it. Unpacking’s boring, otherwise. You all done?” he asked, looking over at Rem’s bed to see if he’d unpacked yet or not. He hadn’t actually paid attention to that when he’d come in, he was already in the playful unpacking mindset and ready to groove as he did so. Thinking of that reminded him that Remus just walked in on him being and idiot and he felt a surge of affection as he appreciated that his friend hadn’t mocked him for it yet. There was still plenty of time for that to change though and he wouldn’t be surprised if it did. 

Remus glanced down at his own trunk, and sighed, the whole effort taking a lot. “No, I have only unpacked what carryon I had for the train, but the actual unloading I have yet to do. I don’t suppose living out of the trunk is a good sort of practice either.” He didn’t move to get up, instead leaning back onto his hands, watching Sirius as he had his own pile to deal with. Figuring that he would unpack later, Remus made no attempt at helping. “By all means, continue the dance of unpacking. You can pretend I’m not even here.” Remus had not forgotten the sight he had walked in on, and his smile proved the point. “I believe it had something to do with the hips.” He shifted his own while he sat, in mimicry.

alittledoeinthemeadowes:

I’m probably just remembering when I got lost in my First Year. I don’t even remember where I ended up, but I know it was for a couple of hours at least. I remember thinking that prefects were like superheros after one found me. I like to think of it as welcoming too and safe, particularly safe. I just hope it continues that way for the year. But then again, anything’s better than everything that’s going on outside the walls. I kind of like the studying, I mean it occupies your mind and focuses you on something other than your own thoughts. Though I did rather like muggle school too, however I think I was more interested by the monkey bars than any actual school.

image

I agree, I hope it maintains it’s security through these dark times. There needs to be somewhere that other can go to. I didn’t get around much to playing on the playground as a child, but I suppose I am making up for it now, what with the antics we get up to here. Studying is like a double edged sword, it’s fantastic as long as I understand the topic, when I don’t it bites back. Of course getting help with studying is always nice as well.

lilyievans:

No scheming? You honestly expect me to believe that, with friends like yours. Oh, all of them! How about you?

image

Well it is early on, we don’t get to any sort of scheme hatchery until later. Classes will be fun, but I have no idea how it will be come the end of the year.
