*the plot and OCs are mine, the rest belongs to J.K.
"Please James. We’re begging you," Shay pleaded to James.
"Yea, come on Prongs. Nobody's going to find out," Sirius said.
"I would gladly do it but Lily and I just got through a rough patch and I don't want her to get mad at me again," James said.
"Whipped," Sirius said in a fake cough.
"Sirius shut it. Please James. If I don't get to go in the prefects' bathroom soon, then I never will. I will be too embarrassed to go swimming because I will be too big, fat, and pregnant to do anything. And if Lily gives you any shit, I will deal with it."
"Fine. You've convinced me. But, please, try not to get caught," James said and gave them the password.
Sirius and Shay walked into the prefects' bathroom and their jaws dropped.
"Wow, this is amazing," Shay said in awe.
"It's so big," Sirius said.
"Oh, shit," they heard someone whisper.
"Is there someone in here?" Shay called out.
Sirius was still examining the room when he called Shay over.
"Do these clothes and wands look familiar?" Sirius asked with a smile.
They belonged to Remus and Niki. Shay quickly stripped down to her swimsuit and Sirius followed.
"You guys better not be naked or doing something dirty because we're coming in."
"No, you're in the clear," they heard Niki say as her head raised above the bubbles.
"We thought you guys were actual prefects. How did you get in?" Remus asked.
"Jamsey-poo," Shay said before cannon balling off the diving board.
"Come on Sirius, the water is perfect!" Shay yelled.
Sirius took a running start and did a belly flop into the pool. The sound was so loud it echoed through out the bathroom.
"Nice one Padfoot," Remus said and laughed as Sirius rose to the surface in pain.
"What was that noise?" the four heard someone ask.
"Who's here now?" Niki asked.
Shay started to laugh.
"It's Sirius's soul mate. Hello Myrtle."
Sirius rolled his eyes and swam as far away from Moaning Myrtle as he could. Moaning Myrtle had been infatuated with Sirius ever since the Marauders had used Myrtle's bathroom for a planning place for a prank in 2nd year.
"You two shouldn't be in here, you're not prefects. But Sirius, you can come in here anytime you want and I'll never tell a soul," Myrtle said and fluttered her eyelashes, while the four stifled laughter.
"We're just swimming, so why don't you just go back to your toilet and leave us be," Shay said while floating on her back.
"Was I talking to you?" Myrtle asked in an angry tone.
"Yea, kind of. But honestly, do you have to be here and watch us, because we were planning on doing some pretty kinky stuff and we weren't expecting an audience. When you have four people ready to go, the options are endless," Shay said and the other three started cracking up.
"Those two do it all the time. It's despicable. In my day you didn't do that until marriage."
"Ew, you actually watch us?" Niki asked, horrified.
"I can’t believe you two de-virginized this bath. I half expect you two to start going at it in the middle of class now,” Shay said and Remus and Niki pulled a face at her while Sirius laughed at them.
“And when was your day, Myrtle? 200 years ago? You're the most annoying ghost in this castle and that's including Peeves," Shay said.
"You are just terrible. The girls are right about you. You do belong in Slytherin," Myrtle said.
"I know, you tell me that every time I have to see your miserable face," Shay said exasperated.
Myrtle started crying very loudly and after all four told her to keep it down, she finally went away.
"Well, you and Myrtle are just two peas in a pod," Sirius joked before being dunked.
"So how often do you two come in here?" Sirius asked.
"About once a week. It's a nice little getaway," Remus said.
"I can't believe Lily kept this from us all these years. I would have told you guys the password right away," Shay said.
"Lily is going to kill us all," Niki said.
"Only if she finds out, and she's not going to," Sirius said.
"Ha! All Knowing Lily not finding out. That's insane. She'll probably find out a half hour after we get back. Now that I mention it, we need to go back because Remus is doing my Charms homework," Shay said and climbed out of the water.
"I never said that," Remus said as he, Sirius, and Niki followed Shay.
"Yes you did. I mean, you we're half asleep but that still counts."
"I can't believe your mother thinks that I'm not fit to be a wife yet," the four heard a girl say.
They all froze, not sure of what to do.
"It's not that she doesn't think you'll be a good wife, she just thinks you should put more focus on me instead of putting so much focus on becoming a…"
"Shh! You need to watch what you say around here. His orders," another boy said.
"Well, anyway, all that matters is that we love each other. You do love me, right?" the girl asked.
Snape, Regulus, and Courtlyn turned the corner, revealing themselves as the voices.
"Snivelly, here to take your monthly bath?" Sirius asked and Shay elbowed him in the stomach.
"You all could get in a lot of trouble, not being prefects," Regulus said.
"Look who's talking. You're the farthest from being a prefect," Shay said.
"You and Smith are looking good. Maybe I should come here more often," Regulus said as he looked at Niki and Shay in their bikinis.
Courtlyn had a look of hurt and jealousy on her face and Snape had a look of disgust. Niki and Shay quickly dried off and got their clothes back on.
"So Reg, how's your nose doing?" Niki asked, reminding him of the previous week when Remus beat the crap out of him.
"His nose is fine. But I hear that your mother is loving Azkaban. She's getting the Dementor's kiss next month. It's a shame and a waste of a good Death Eater," Courtlyn said, defending Regulus.
"Good, it's what she deserves," Niki said, her calmness catching everyone off guard.
"So Regulus, how's that whole infidelity thing working out for you?" Shay asked, totally ignoring Courtlyn's death glares.
Regulus turned a deep shade of red.
"I mean, you just said you love her, or were you thinking of her best friend?" Shay asked and Courtlyn was about to start yelling when Severus stepped in.
"I suggest you four leave. We wouldn't want the Head Boy and Girl to get in trouble, now would we?" Severus said.
"Fine, but be careful what you say and do, Moaning Myrtle is always watching," Sirius said and the four left but not before hearing the beginning of Courtlyn's out burst.
"I can't believe you're screwing her!"
"Happy Valentine's Day! I thought it was a stupid holiday until this year," Shay said and kissed Sirius on the nose.
"It is a nice holiday when you celebrate it with someone you love. How are my two favorite people doing?" Sirius asked while rubbing her stomach.
"We're wonderful. I'm not puking anymore. And next month I'll be in my second trimester, so I'll start showing soon. Yay for fatness!" Shay said sarcastically.
"Oh stop it. You're going to be beautiful as usual," Sirius said and kissed her neck.
"Have you thought of any names?" Shay asked.
"Yea, a little. What are you thinking?"
"If it's a girl, I'm thinking Carina"
"That's a constellation. It's the keel of Argo" Sirius said.
"You really know your stars," Shay said with a smile.
"I was forced to study astronomy along with Latin and French when I was younger. You remember."
"Yes, joyous times they were. Do you have any ideas?"
"I have some ideas for boys' name," Sirius said.
"What is it?"
"I can't tell you," Sirius said with a smile.
"And why not?"
"Because it might jinx it."
"So you want to have a boy first?" Shay asked.
"Well, I wouldn't care either way. I just feel like the oldest should be a boy so he can look after all the other kids. He'll be the protector."
Shay gave him a smile.
"What? Why are you smiling?"
"It's cute that you're thinking of names and thinking about the future so much. I mean, some guys run and hide when they get a girl pregnant, but you are 100% into this, and I couldn't love you anymore right now."
Shay kissed him and Sirius felt her tears of joy on his face.
"So does that mean you want a boy too?"
"I'm glad that Valentine's Day turned out so well," Niki said while lying in bed with Remus.
They were in the girls' dormitory instead of the boys' because both Lily and Shay were out.
"Yea, we really needed this," Remus said and started kissing her collarbone.
"Our relationship got a lot stronger over the past month. I know you are my forever," Niki said and Remus smiled and kissed her on the lips.
"I have a proposition for you," Remus said.
"What is it?"
"Move in with me. After school is done, I want you to move in with me. I don't want to be the only person living in that house. I would sell it but I know my parents would have wanted me to keep it."
"Of course I will. I wouldn't want you to live there alone," Niki said and kissed him.
"Now, I think it's time to properly celebrate our next step forward," Remus said and Niki smiled and pulled him on top of herself.
"Do you think flowers are going to make what you did any better?" Courtlyn yelled at Regulus and whipped the bouquet of blood red roses at him.
Everyone in the Slytherin common room scattered as quickly as possible. Even they were afraid of the school's biggest bitch.
"Courtlyn, you know I'm sorry. How many times do I have to say it?" Regulus asked.
"Until you actually mean it," Courtlyn said coldly.
"I really am sorry. You've been preoccupied lately and she was there."
"And I had to find out from that bitch! I would have rather caught you and Deanna myself!"
"Courtlyn, we're engaged. You need to get over this."
"We're not engaged. I'm going to contact my mother and tell her the wedding is off. She can find me someone a hell of a lot better."
"No! Please don't do that!" Regulus shouted out suddenly.
Courtlyn got angrier.
"The only reason you're apologizing is because you're afraid of your mother! You never wanted to marry me!"
"That's not true! You've been the girl I loved from day one. You've been my best friend forever. I've been telling my parents for years that I wanted to marry you. And I'm sorry that it took this situation for me to realize that I don't like my life if you're not in it. I'm not afraid of my mother. I'm afraid of losing you," Regulus said.
Courtlyn stared him down for a while. Then she grabbed his hand and dragged him up to the boys' dormitory.
"So are we ok?" Regulus asked as he was starting to get excited.
"Yea, but Regulus, if I catch you cheating again, you will wake up without your penis."
Peter Pettigrew walked down the corridor by himself. This was the 17th Valentine's Day he had spent alone. The years before hadn't been that bad because his friends usually weren't all in relationships. But this year since they all decided to couple up, he was left the outcast as usual. Sirius and Shay invited him to hang out with them because they weren't doing anything special but he denied the offer. They were probably going to be talking about the baby and he didn't want to intrude. Peter really wanted someone to share these holidays with but he was so shy, it was hard. Girls intimidated the crap out of him, he couldn't help it. He was in a trance when he ran into somebody and he and the mystery person went flying.
"I'm so sorry. I'm clumsy," Peter said embarrassed.
"It's ok. I wasn't watching where I was going," a girl with light brown hair said as she was picking up her books and papers.
"Here let me help," Peter said and started grabbing for things.
"Thanks," the girl said and her and Peter stood up.
"Hey, aren't you friends with James Potter?" the girl asked and Peter noticed her sparkling green eyes.
"Yea, he's one of my best friends. The name's Peter Pettigrew"
"Hi, I'm Alana Michaels. It's a pleasure to meet you."
"The same here. I don't think I've ever seen you before. What house are you in?"
"I'm in Ravenclaw. I'm a 6th year though. Well, I'm sure you have plans so I'll just get out of your way," Alana said.
"Actually I…I was going to ask what you were doing cause I don't have any plans," Peter said while looking at the carpet.
"I was just going to study."
"Do you want to go for a walk? I can take you down to the kitchen and we can get some food."
"That sounds great," Alana said with a smile.
Maybe Peter's 17th Valentine's Day would turn out for the better.
"Our first Valentine's Day together and it was perfect," Lily said as her and James cuddled on the couch in the Room of Requirement.
They were stuffed from the meal they just ate.
"Here, happy Valentine's Day," James said and handed her a piece of paper.
"A hangman puzzle?" Lily questioned.
"Yea, see if you can solve it."
"Ok, are there any A's?"
"Yea, there's one," James said and filled in the letter.
I A ?
I O U A E ?
"No," James said and drew a head.
"Nope," he said and drew a torso.
"There are two my dear."
I O U A R R E ?
"No" he said and drew an arm.
"M?" Lily asked quietly.
W I L L Y O U M A R R Y M E ?
Lily took a deep breath and tears came to her eyes.
"James, are you serious?" she asked.
James got down on one knee and pulled out a ring.
"Lily Rose Evans, ever since the first time I laid eyes on you, I've been head over heels in love. Since that day, I knew you were the girl I wanted to be with forever. Will you marry me?" James asked with a smile.
"Of course I will," Lily said and James put the ring on her finger.
"James Matthew Potter, you just made me the happiest girl in the world," Lily said and pulled him into a passionate kiss.
