It was Christmas morning, and Remus Lupin woke up early for once. Usually, he would open his eyes to the smell of hot chocolate and toast, and the sight of Sirius doing Merlin knew what now by the foot of the bed. But this time, Sirius lay huddled to his side mumbling something about murder and too early before drifting off to sleep again, and Remus sat up and started opening the presents. (He had the nagging suspicion that he would be receiving several things from girls he did not really know well. Presents that Sirius would have too much fun examining, like last year’s. And now, Remus was forearmed against any such happening.)
He picked up one small box. There was no name on the card, but Remus recognised the handwriting as the same one he usually sees on the board during Transfiguration classes. On the card was written, ’ Please do remember to keep your pet in check.’
Glad that there was no hot chocolate after all, or he would have either choked or spilled it all over Sirius, Remus opened the box.
sirius likes to think he’s really hardcore and punk rock but really he gets very distraught over papercuts and doesn’t like to sleep without saying goodnight to all of his friends before bed and he can’t function without at least 10 hugs a day and he gets really mopey when he feels left out and if he had his way all of his sandwiches would have the crusts cut off
Can we talk about how in tune with each other James and Sirius are? Throughout that whole exchange. One mind.
Also - cheerful, confident and rebellious were just about the best adjectives JKR could have possibly used to describe these two.
