Well, I felt really bad about not updating for ages, so I thought to myself 'Self, why dont you put up, wait for it, TWO new chapters!' So I did. Well actually its three new chapters, but one of them isnt really a chapter. So anyways, I love you all if you read this!


Previously in The Plan: "Gentlemen, I think I just came up with a new plan." I met Moony's gaze, we both knew this wasn't going to be good.

Later: "Well, lovebirds, I really think it is time for lunch!" James said. That was his plan. He said that he had seen the look on Linda's face when at breakfast when Remus kissed me and that the two of us should pretend to be a couple to make her incredibly jealous.

Chapter 5: Into Action

That day was one of the weirdest of my life. The news that Remus and I had kissed at breakfast had spread faster than I expected it to.

By the time dinner arrived, I was sick of telling people that we were dating. Just about every girl in the whole school had asked.

I had managed to avoid any lip-locking with Remus, as we hadn't seen Linda. We were on our way to dinner when we spotted her. She was half way down the corridor, walking between two of her friends.

As she got closer, I felt Remus tense next to me. I could practically hear his heart beat increase. I leaned to his ear and whispered.

"Its alright, she's only walking towards you, stop panicking. She's not even looking, she's hasn't looked this way ye- okay she's looking, she's looking Moony, what do we do!" He chuckled slightly and I felt his hand clasp mine. Now I felt my heart beat increase.

He's holding my hand, he's holding my hand, he's holding my hand…

All to soon he let go, she was obviously gone, but I was saved by Peter.

"You better keep holding hands, guys, it'd be best if the rest of the school thought you were dating too." He smiled at me when he said this.

I felt a hand trying to find mine, so I grabbed it, and realised that I was holding Remus's hand. I had dreamt about it for years. I turned my head to look at him. I caught his gaze, and we both went into fits off laughter.


We had finished dinner, but were still in the Great Hall. It was slowly emptying, but we were trying to see if we could be the last people in there. I had to go do my detention with McGonagall though, so I think the others were ready to give up.

I stood from my chair, said by to the others and started to walk away. Before I got far, I felt an arm snake it's way around my waist. I smiled as I realised who it was and spun back around.

"Good luck in detention." Remus said, before placing a kiss on my cheek. He turned a violent shade of red when he realised what he did. I laughed and hugged him.

"I'll try to. It's your fault that I got detention, you know. I was defending your honour." I smiled as I kissed a very confused looking Remus.


I wasn't in detention for very long. McGonagall was proud of me for defending Peter, so she mostly just talked to me, then made me sort some files. I got to the Common Room around eight, to find my friends sitting around the fire.


"You weren't gone long."

"I know. She thought I was being noble by getting Peter out of detention, so she just made me sort files."

"You punched a Slytherin, and that's all she made you do?" James sounded ecstatic. "Maybe I should try that! I've always wanted to punch Snivellus! Peter, will you come with me to punch Snivellus, and then I'll get you out of detention-"

"James. No." Remus didn't even look up from his Ancient Runes homework.

I never understood why Remus didn't enjoy teasing Slytherin's. Sure, he's a prefect now, so he says he can't tease them, but he never liked it anyway. Always telling James and me off for it.

"Why did you punch him, Padfoot? Before you left, you said you were defending your honour or something."

I didn't exactly want to say 'I punched him because he was teasing you, Moony, and I want to get you in bed, so I had to defend you.'

"Actually, Moony, I was defending your honour."

"What is that supposed to mean?"

"I cant tell you that."

"Why no-"

"Because I said so."


That night I couldn't sleep. No different from any other night. I was, as usual, thinking about Remus. I remember back in third year, when I first found myself liking him.

I would lay awake at night thinking up ways of getting sweaty with him. But eventually I found that I wasn't thinking of us doing naughty things anymore, I was thinking about the way his eyes lit when he was happy, or the way the light caught his hair sometimes, making it shine gold.

I sighed and rolled over. Since none of us usually closed our curtains at night, except on weekends, when we wanted to sleep in, I could see Remus in the bed to my right.

His chest was rising and falling, in time with his breathing.

I watched him for hours, until I finally fell asleep.


It was the next day in Herbology that I realised what I had actually gotten myself into. I was pruning a big purple flower that smelt disgusting when James started talking to me about it. Remus and Peter were pruning a different flower, so they didn't hear.

"Padfoot?" He asked, snapping some leaves from the base of the plant.

"Prongs?" I said, focusing mostly on not poking myself in the eye with a leaf.

"Do you want to know something?" I could tell James was going to tell me, wether I wanted to know it or not, so I nodded. "This thing with Remus, I don't think it's actually going to work."

I stopped pruning the plant and looked at him.

"Then why did you come up with it?' I asked, slightly annoyed.

"I don't know. It seemed like a good idea at the time." He tried to rip a leaf from the plant, and only succeeded in making his thumb bleed. "Ow! All I mean is-" He shoved his thumb into his mouth to prevent the blood from dripping on his robes. "All I mean is, you shouldn't do it. You don't have to. Its not going to work."

"What did Peter say to you?" I asked, knowing fully well that James thought it was a brilliant plan.

"Peter didn't say anything to-"

"JAMES! I know he said something." I crossed my arms and gave him my best puppy dog look.

"Alright fine!" He yelled, crossing his arms too. "He told me to talk you out of it."

"Did he say why!" I asked.

"No, he wouldn't tell me, he just said to get you out of it."

"Oh, well to bad, I'm going to do it for Remus." We went back to pruning the giant purple flower in silence.


A week passed, and before I knew it, Quidditch had started again. James and I had our first practise on Monday night.

The rain was coming down in thick, heavy sheets. We had been at it for an hour and we were all soaked and freezing, but James refused to let us end it.

"If were going to beat Slytherin we have to be prepared for anything!" He yelled to the team through the rain. It was difficult to hear him, and I couldn't even see him.

A crack of lighting lit the sky and was quickly joined by a deafening clap of thunder. I heard James yelling, but I couldn't make out what he was saying, and decided to head for the ground.

When I got there, I was quickly joined by my team mates. Apparently James had shouted for us all to get back to the ground. James was last to reach the ground, and by the time he was there, I was the only person left on the pitch, everyone else had run for the Changing rooms.

"Hurry up, James!" I yelled as his feet hit the ground and he came running towards me.

We finally reached the shelter of the Change Rooms when we were joined by a first year Hufflepuff.

"Um, James Potter?" He squeaked, clearly frightened at having to address fifth years. He was shaking, but from the rain or nerves, I didn't know.

"Yes?" James asked.

"Um, Pro-Professor Flitwick told me to-"

"Oh I forgot all about that!" James yelled, quickly grabbing his things and heading out the door shouting "See you later, Sirius!" In charms this morning he had lit Snape's hair on fire. He had earned a detention from Flitwick and a telling-off from Remus. I didn't know why, it was hardly James' fault. The gits hair was so oily, I'm surprised it hadn't ignited when he was within 100 metres of an open flame.

I was left was the rest of my team, who were all already in the shower. Once I was clean and dry, I was about to leave when a very un-wanted conversation started.

"Sirius?" The seeker, Theo, asked. I turned and found my entire team (except James) looking at me.

"What?" I asked, a but peeved at them for stopping me from leaving.

"Is it true?" He asked, with the others looking eagerly over his shoulders. It was obvious that they had all talked about it. It made me angry.

"So what if it is?" I asked, my anger starting to bubble.

"But is it true?" Theo asked, looking a bit intimidated.

"Yes." I crossed my arms over my chest and glared at all of them.

"Why?" One of the girls, Janice Pritt, asked, looking a bit confused.

"Why what?" I asked.

"Why him?" Theo said, looking a bit disgusted. All I wanted to do was punch him in the face. How dare he! He seemed to notice the sudden anger that filled me and took a few steps back. I opened his mouth to reply and quickly decided that it would be better if I didn't. I might have cursed them all into Africa.

They all stared at me, waiting for an answer. I closed my eyes and calmly turned away from them to leave. I was just about out the door when I heard someone whisper.

"Why is he dating that bookworm?" I turned back around and saw the shock all over Theo's face. It was clearly him who had said it. I tried to calm myself as anger licked my insides, all the way to my toes. I could feel myself shaking and my fists were clenched by my sides.

"What?" I asked, my voice shaking. The rest of the team seemed to stand in front of Theo, blocking me from him. Smart move. I turned back to the door, and made myself as calm as I could possibly get, I walked from the Changing Rooms, making a mental note to curse Theo the next time I saw him.


By the time I reached the Entrance Hall I was soaking wet. It was freezing and I had left my wand in the dorm, so I couldn't even give myself a drying charm. I started the long journey back to Gryffindor Tower, looking forward to the shower that I would be having when I got back.

I only got two corridors away from the Entrance Hall when I saw Remus. Remus who had a wand.

"Remus! You have a wand!" He looked at me like I had grown an extra head.

"Yeah, don't we all? You know, going to a magic school and everything." I shook my head and laughed.

"No, you dolt. Can you do me a drying charm? I left my wand upstairs and its freezing." I gave him the best pout I could and he laughed. We walked silently back to Gryffindor Tower, and I was feeling awkward. I had never felt awkward around Remus before, well he always made me a bit self-conscious, but I could always think of things to say.

"Sirius, we can stop, you know."

"But, then we wont get back to the dorm, and the dorm has showers-"

"No, I mean this thing with Linda." Oh. That. "Its made things weird, we don't have to do it any more." He wasn't looking at me, but I could tell that he wanted me to jump in and say that I would do it, no matter what happened. I sighed and stopped walking.

"I know we can stop, but we're not going to. You like her a lot, don't you?" He nodded. "Well, if this is the only way then so be it." He went to respond, but I interrupted him. "No, Moony, you like this girl, so I don't care if you think its made things weird. We're doing this." We walked in silence for a minute or so.

"Look, Padfoot-"

"Remus, what did I just say?" I grabbed his shoulders and shook him lightly.

"No, its not that, its just, well, er." He seemed to be having difficulty saying what ever he wanted to say. "Well, we're getting pretty close to the library, and there's always lots of people there and if they all think we're going out-" It suddenly clicked.

"Oh, right. We should be holding hands or something." I silently cursed the blush that had suddenly stained my entire face. Remus nodded and blushed, too. I suddenly didn't know what to do with my hands, and just decided to grab his right hand with my left one.

We walked a little bit more, and my grip on his hand tightened. As we got closer to the library, the number of students around did increase, and to my horror Cartwater came around the corner. I heard Remus' breath quicken and his hand became very sweaty. I glared at her and pulled Remus closer, wrapping my arms around his waist. Once she was gone, I didn't move my arms, and Remus didn't seem to notice.
