Marlene did her best to ignore the antics of the two boys across the corridor from her. It wasn’t easy, especially with Sirius doing everything he could to get her attention, and with Peter laughing stupidly at everything his friend did. Slowly, keeping her face neutral, she looks over at them. Bloody hell, they were idiots.
Sirius cracked a grin in her direction, pleased that she couldn’t ignore him. Rather than respond, she looked away pointedly. Thankfully, Lily called out to her, and Marlene rushed to catch up with her friend. As she walked off, she finally let herself smile, knowing he’d never know she’d actually smiled because of him.
"Hello! My name’s James Potter and I’m a bloody idiot. Look at me Lily Evans, watch me prance around."
"Oh Merlin, that’s quite good actually."
AU: Marlene telling Hermione and Ginny about an adventure she’d had with Lily
"So then Lils and I were walking down the corridor and I was holding James pants and.. No! Wait! I meant wand! I didn’t have his pants!"
"Merlin, you’re a weird bird Marls. I sincerely hope you gave Prongs his pants back."
Dianna Agron is my top Marlene faceclaim, but I also like Alona Tal, Kirsten Bell and Anna Torv for an older, had-she-lived Marlene.
But I will always FC Marlene as blond because she was blonde in the ootp movie.
Hello love, let’s play a game
You take my heart, I’ll take your name
"I’m sorry Sirius, they’re all dead. Marlene, her parents, her brother. Even the baby."
"She didn’t…she didn’t tell you? Oh Sirius…Marlene was pregnant."
"I-I-I was going to be a father?"
"Sirius, I’m so sorry. I thought you knew."
"Marls, if you love Sirius so much, just tell him. Life’s too short to wait."
"I know, I know. I’ll tell him when I see him tomorrow."
"Why wait? Just go tell him today."
"Lily, it can wait a day. Nothing is going to happen in a day."
