Who: Sirius Black, James Potter, Remus Lupin - any other Professors want to jump in, ask. (:
What: Poker night.
Where: Sirius' flat, which is not at Hogwarts. (Dumbledore gives him permission once a month.)
Warnings: Drinking, swearing, the usual rowdy-Marauders-boys things.
The strange delayed sound on Jimmy Page's guitar playing sent Sirius' back to when he was young and tried to do everything possible to prove to his father that he didn't need to be Black to be real. Smoking weed, listening to Led Zeppelin and pretending that he wasn't a wizard in front of the kids in Muggle London was one of his favorite things to do - easiest things to do, too. As "Down By The Seaside" was ending, Sirius began to recall the one particular memory of him having brought muggle weed into Hogwarts for himself, James, Remus and Peter. Oh, if people thought their shenanigans were comical when they were entirely sober, more of them should've been around the night they were all high as kites trying to figure out how to get to the kitchen without being followed.
Peter kept seeing "lizard aliens" following him, James was enamored by his toes (he'd forgone shoe-wearing for this particular excursion) and Remus was talking like a pirate. Sirius had decided to believe that wearing a robe would lead him to enlightenment and chose to babble on about the "great spirit in the sky." Yes, their childhood was entertaining.
Led Zeppelin playing on his Muggle record player never ceased to entertain him, and after having spent time actually making some kind of chili food dip that muggles had in a book, Sirius was ready to have his friends arrive. It'd been a few nights since they played poker (all right, closer to four months, as Lily had been keeping her husband hostage for some unfathomable reason. Something about "needing to finish their work" or some nonsense. Sirius simply chose to idly poke her when she was nearby as retaliation.) Remus was supposed to grab James, and then the horrifying liquor-drinking, money-losing game would begin.
