*the plot and oc's are mine, the rest belongs to J.K.

**This chapter can get confusing. I get confused some times, and I wrote the chapter. But I hope you like it.

Shay walked into Defense Against the Dark Arts and saw that familiar head of strawberry blonde hair.



"I'm so glad you're in this class. I won't have to sit alone," Shay said with excitement.

"Oh thanks. Now I know what I really am to you," Dory said with mock offense.

"Aw, come on babe, you know you're my number one."

"Hey what number am I?" Sirius asked putting an arm around Shay.

Shay started counting on her fingers.

"You're like number 10."

"10...That's like last."

"No second last, Potter's right behind you."

"Hey that's not nice!" James said from behind her.

"I'm only kidding James. You're like number 7 and Sirius is behind you. I forgot you like to take it, not give it."

Shay, Dory, Remus, and Peter started laughing. James and Sirius were glaring daggers at Shay.

"What? Did I say something wrong?" Shay asked trying not to laugh.

"You know what, you get meaner as you get older," Sirius said.

"No, I just don't need to be nice to you guys anymore."

"And why not?" James asked.

"Because I know you love me."

James rolled his eyes and Sirius gave her a smirk.

"Ok everyone in their seats."

In came a young brunette that must have been their new professor.

"Hello, my name is Professor Donaldson, but you can call me Stacie. Professor makes me feel old."

The class laughed.

"I am here to teach you Defense Against the Dark Arts. But this isn't your regular Defense Against the Dark Arts class. I am going to teach you guys things other professors are afraid to talk about. By the end of the year, you guys will know every defense spell and charm there is to man. You will need them after you go into the real world."

Remus raised his hand. Of coarse he did, its Remus.

"Yes, uh…" Stacie said not knowing his name.

"Remus, Remus Lupin, ma'am."

"And get used to him raising his hand," Sirius said.

"Well there is nothing wrong with that. And your name is?"

"Sirius Black," he said and gave her the famous smirk.

"Well Mr. Black, I can see right now you and Mr. Potter will not be raising your hand often," she said easily defecting Sirius's attempt to woo her.

"How did you know his name?" Sirius asked.

"I've known James since he was in diapers. I used to baby-sit him."

"I hoped they paid you well."

"Yes very well. He was a little piss fire as a kid. Plus he could smell awful."

James blushed madly. The whole class laughed but Sirius and Shay got a real kick out of it.

"What's you name miss?" Stacie asked after spotting Shay.

"Shay Calhoun."

Stacie started laughing.

"What's so funny?" Shay asked, feeling a bit offended.

"You've known James for a while now right?"

"Yea since pre-school."

"Well did he ever tell you he had such…"

"STACIE, NO!" James yelled.

"He had such a what?"

"He had such a huge crush on you."

Shay looked back at James, who had his head down on the table.

"Oh did he?" Shay said starting to laugh.

"Do you remember getting cards with no names and pieces of candy on your desk?"

"Yea, wait...that was him?"

Shay pointed back at James who hadn't moved yet.

"Yes, I'm the one that told him what to do."

"Aw, James I never knew you felt that way. I think we could make a certain red head jealous," Shay teased him.

James finally put his head up.

"Stacie…why?" he asked frustrated.

"I'm just getting you back for making me look like a clown."

James started laughing.

"It's not funny. I had to walk around like that for two weeks."

"Well he's not much better these days, he is still pulling pranks. Famous around school for it. These other fools are always right along with him" Shay said motioning to the other three Marauders.

"Ah, well James knows I'm not afraid of him and his silly little games."

"I think you've become my new favorite teacher," Shay said.

"She's so awesome!" Shay said as her Sirius and James were walking down the corridor.

"She's pretty damn hot too" Sirius said.

"Is that all you think about?" Shay asked.

"Yea. That and quiditch."


"You offend me when you call me a boy," Sirius said soberly.

"I'm just stating the obvious. You and James are boys. Neither of you take any responsibility for yourself, the both of you get out of trouble only because of your charm and good looks, and neither of you can hold down a girl. Boys, in my opinion," Shay said with a smirk.

"I could hold you down," Sirius said and slung his arm around Shay's shoulders.

Shay picked up his arm and dropped it off her shoulder.

"Sorry but I only let men hold me down," Shay said and saw Sirius scowl.

Shay and Sirius made fun of each other a lot. They had known each other forever and knew each other too well. Sirius could say things to Shay that no one else could and vice versa.

"If you guys are done, I have a little proposition for you Shay. Do you want to make lessons a little more interesting?" James asked.

"What do you mean?"

"I mean a dare."

"Fine, but if you get to dare me, I get to dare you."

"Fine but I get to say yours first" James said.

"Ok, tell me already."

"You have to speak Gaelic until you manage to get yourself kicked out of class."

"Ok, and you my friend have to say 'that's what she said' after any one talks."

"You got it."

"I wonder who's going to get kicked out first." Sirius said with a laugh.

"Dia daoibh" "That's what she said" Shay and James said as they entered the advance potions class.

Lily and Niki were also in this class.

"Shay what are you doing?" Lily asked.

"That's what she said."

"Te bheith Gaelige"

"That's what she said."

"You're are going to get yourself into trouble"

"That's what she said."

Lily knew what Shay was saying because she had taught how to speak Irish Gaelic.

"James, will you quit saying that!"

"That's what she said. I can't, she dared me."

"You guys are going to get kicked out" Lily said.

"That's what she said."

"How long do you guys have to do this?" Niki asked laughing.

"That's what she said."

"An l ar fad."

"That's what she said."

"What?" Niki asked confused.

"They have to do it all day," Lily said and crossed her arms.

"That's what she said."

"That was a good one," Sirius said while cracking up in his seat.

"That's what she said. Thank you for noticing. I'm glad someone can appreciate my talents," James said and inched his way towards Lily.

She pushed him away quickly.

"Who wants to bet on them?" Sirius asked.

"That's what she said."

"Bet what?" Niki asked.

"That's what she said."

"Who will get kicked out first" Sirius said.

"That's what she said."

"I'll take that bet and put 10 sickes on James." Niki said.

"That's what she said."

"Good. I got 10 on Shay." Sirius said.

"That's what she said."

"You guys are despicable." Lily said.

"That's what she said."

"Táimid dul a bua!"

"That's what she said."

Lily shook her head and sat down, not talking to anyone.

Slughorn came in and everyone sat down. Shay, Lily, and Niki sat at one table.
"Welcome to Advance Potions. Today we will be making hair growing potion."

"That's what she said."

"Who was that?"

"That's what she said."

"Let's just carry on. I need to take attendance."

"That's what she said."

Slughorn went on is if he didn't here James.


"That's what she said."


"That's what she said."

"What did you say?"

"That's what she said."

"Seo, te sé Gaeilge."

"That's what she said."

"I can't understand what you're saying"

"That's what she said."

"At tú balbh?"

"That's what she said."

"Who keeps saying that?!"

"That's what she said."

"Te sé!"

"That's what she said."

"Speak regular English now!"

"That's what she said."

"Ná, tú ramhar tuilí!"

"That's what she said."

"Get out!"

"That's what she said."

"Déanfaidh mé é agus fáilte!"

"That's what she said."

"Get out! 30 points from Gryffindor and detention tonight. Go to Professor Dumbledore's office!"

"That's what she said."

"Bith! Mhaith déanfaidh tar!"

"That's what she said."

"Feichfidh mé thú!" Shay said and slammed the door.

"Merlin, I can't stand that guy!" Shay thought to herself.

But her thoughts were interrupted by Slughorn yelling again.

"Potter get out!" Shay started laughing.

She stopped and waited for James to catch up.

"So he found out?"

"Yea. He's not a very bright man."

"I think he was a little distracted."

"What were you saying to him?"

"That's for me to know, and you to never find out. Did you get detention?"

"Yep and 25 points off."

"Hey he took 30 from me!"

"Well I wasn't speaking a different language."

"No, he's just a fat bald git. Come on we have to go see Dumbledore."

" you know the password?" James asked.

"No but it's always some kind of candy."

"Ok…Fizzing Whizbees."


"Bertie Botts Every Flavored Beans."


"Chocolate Frogs."

Once again nothing.

"Hold on I think I know. Lemon Drops."

The gargoyle opened and Shay and James walked in.

"How did you know the password?"

"Dumbledore has this thing about them. They're really good for being a muggle candy," Shay said knocking on the door.

"Come in."

They walked into find Professor Dumbledore sitting at his desk.

"Hello Professor" Shay and James said together.

"Miss Calhoun, I did not expect to see you so soon, as for you Mr. Potter, I was expecting you and Mr. Black anytime today."

"We were supposed to come down here because Professor Slughorn kicked us out." Shay said taking a seat.

"Well, what happened?"

"James here dared me to speak Gaelic and I dared him to say 'that's what they say' after anyone talked. And well you can probably figure out what happened after that."

"We are really sorry for disturbing and all but a dare is a dare and I know neither of us goes back on our word," James said.

"It is quite alright Mr. Potter. I know you both have a detention. But there is something I need to tell you. There is a meeting that I want you two in addition to Mr. Black, Mr. Lupin, Mr. Pettigrew, Miss Evans, and Miss Smith to be there. I will be sending you all a letter two weeks in advance. So I just ask that the two of you relay the message and wait with open eyes for the notice. Now good day and try to stay out of trouble."

"Thank you Professor and we will," Shay said as they exited.

"What was that about?" James asked.

"I don't know."
