"I actually did know the bit about Greek mythology," Theresa volunteered, in an attempt to rescue James. She honestly wasn't overly fond of this Julia girl, but she was far too polite to say so.

"So that's why you weren't dancing," she teased Remus, slugging him on the arm playfully. "Off chatting!"

James blinked at Julia after her Quidditch comment, and, for once, felt quite speechless. He prided himself on Quidditch being the thing he knew about-and yet he had to confess ignorance to those facts. Remus' girl was a strange one. But he would not be shown up to a girl. Except, perhaps, for Evans, he though unconsciously.

Wow...he thought to himself, shaking his head...where did that come from?

"So..." James said quickly, to distract himself more than anything else. Julia, Theresa and Remus were all looking at him expectantly, Remus looking quite miserable. "...what? The Harpies have good defense, but they're nothing when you compare them to the Kestrels. Darren O'Hare invented the Hawkshead Attacking Formation some years ago. And they have leprechauns," he added for good measure.

"We were talking last night," Julia said, her eyes widening.  Remus ignored the obvious sniggers coming from James and coughed delicately.

"By the way, Julia, these two are James and Theresa.  They're in my year.  James is on the Quidditch team."

Julia turned her amber stare on James.

"Quidditch," she said musingly, "first played in the first century of the second millennia AD, named for its place of origin, Queerditch Marsh.  I like the Holyhead Harpies.  Did you know that the word harpies translates as 'robbers', and that in early Greek mythology the harpies were depicted as beautiful winged maidens?  Or that the harpies Aello, Celaeno, and Ocypete were responsible for carrying souls into the underworld to inflict punishment and torture?"

"Uh," Remus interrupted, "was there, erm, something you wanted, Julia?"

Julia blinked slowly down at Remus and ran a tongue self-consciously over her lips.

"Er, no," she said, looking slightly derailed, "no.  I just wanted to say hello."

"Oh," replied Remus, feeling rather awful, "um... hello."

"Wow, that was informative. All I knew was that my whole family's been in this house," Theresa smiled politely. "I thought the dance was lovely, but then again, I love to dance. It's very nice to meet you, Julia. How do you know Remus?"

She patted Remus's arm under the table sympathetically. Her brother humiliated her all the time, so she could find sympathy for Remus.

"Erm," Remus said, "this is Julia Trevellan. She's in our year. She's, uh, a Ravenclaw."

Julia blinked at Theresa and James.

"Did you know," she said, "that the house of Gryffindor produced such notable alumni as Almerick Sawbridge, the troll conquerer, Glanmore Peakes, and the famous Mirabella Plunkett, whom as you must know was born in the same year that the famous Werewolf Code of Conduct was established. I personally am a fan of the great Tilly Toke, who of course was responsible for producing the largest Mass Memory Charm of this century in the infamous Ilfracombe incident of 1932, which subsequently won her the Order of Merlin First Class. I do hope the owls will be here soon. I thought the dance last night was rather a bore, didn't you? Although the decorations were rather nice."

Remus passed a hand over his eyes and tried not to look at James or Theresa.

Theresa, who had plopped down next to Remus and was eating without giving much mind to Julia, looked up when James teased her. She swallowed and managed out, "Yes, Remus, who is this?" Nevermind that she thought she had classes with Julia. Maybe she did. Maybe she didn't. Was Julia friends with Musetta, she wondered. If she was, she probably wouldn't like Julia.

James saw a girl coming towards Remus from the Ravenclaw table and thought, Well, well, look what the wolf dragged in... Remus looked queasy at the sight of her, further confirming James' suspicions. She greeted Remus, who answered with a highly intelligible "Er..."

This made James smile, and he turned around to look at the girl. She was no one he could remember meeting, but he had a terrible memory for faces anyway. He nudged Remus, who was still looking awkward, and said, "Remus, who's this, pray tell?"

Remus held his hands out to steady both James and Theresa as they collided, keeping them from falling over.

"Easy," he told Theresa with a laugh, "no need to rush. There's plenty of food for everyone."

He entered the Great Hall and ambled over to the Gryffindor table, scanning for a few empty seats. He found a clear space and, sitting down, began considering his menu options. A moment later the hair at the nape of his neck raised slightly; feeling eyes on the back of his head, he turned around halfway and saw Julia Trevellan staring at him from the Ravenclaw table. He hastily faced front again and tried to pretend he hadn't noticed.

"Please don't let her come over here," he whispered to himself, "please don't let her come over here."

He put a forkful of kipper into his mouth and voice behind him said,


Remus turned his head and found himself looking up into a pair of enormous orangy eyes.

"Good morning, Julia," he said, swallowing his food.

The girl continued staring down at him.

"Er," said Remus.

OOC-- a rather lame post with an extremely ineffectual ending, but I figure James or Theresa or Sirius or Lily or *whoever* can jump in or... something. Or I'll just pick up in the next post. I'm having a mental blockage day.

"Just let me run up to the dorms and get some shoes. I don't feel like walking down to the great hall in fuzzy slippers." Lily said before heading back up to the dorm to replace her slippers with a pair of shoes and abandoning her fuzzy robe(IE: Housecoat) for a set of school ones to cover her PJ's.

She rejoined Sirius down in the common room and they left together.

"So you want to hear allllll the stupid things you did? Well, I don't think we have the year needed to describe allllll the stupid things you've done since I have met you but I suppose I could tell you what you did last night." Lily said with a grin. "Headache all better?" She asked when she noticed he seemed to be more his own self rather than the cringing shadow he had been when she had first come down to the common room.

Sirius nodded as Theresa rushed off like a puppy after James and Remus.

"No bloody wonder there's breakfast, the house elves don't stop working just because we partied last night.." Sirius muttered irratably.

Lily glanced at him with a raised eye brow and Sirius just shrugged. "She's just a scatter brain sometimes.." Lily rolled her eyes as Sirius grinned. His headache was feeling a bit better, but his body still felt achy.

"Come on Li, we should probably go get some food... or at least some dry toast for me." Sirius's stomach had decided to flip as he stood up from the chair. "And on the way down you can tell me exactly what stupid things I did..."

ooc: just a request... the entire school doesn't know that Sirius was basically plastered last night (ahhh, to be 14 again...) nor that he was responsible for the slightly... lucrative drinks, since apparently Lucius made it so that he was :P
