Remus looked slightly pained. “Ah. Were they, by any chance, singing ‘Voldy Got Run Over By a Hippogriff’?”

“Er, actually, ‘Frogs Go Pop’, ‘Roadkill Stew’, and that delightful Shaving Cream Song.”

Remus raised his eyebrows. “Once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and I miss it.”
^^haha! I figured out how to copy/paste!!!!! And I'm glad I did, because this was brilliant!!!!! And I thought that the Marauders and Lily found out about his 'illness' in 5th year to become animagi? Ah well. Fanfiction is a wonderful and sometimes noncanon-compliant (is that a word? I'm searching for one that means not canon thats fancy.).

James nodded thoughtfully. “We,” he said in a slow and contemplative voice, “should really get an air hockey table.”

“Do you know what air hockey is?” Lily inquired politely, being of Muggle stock and aware that a pureblood like James probably had no more idea of what air hockey was than of who John Lennon was.
^^How can anyone, wizard or not, have never heard of John Lennon and Air Hockey!! *gets not-so-delightful mental image involving both of the aforementioned Muggle things/people* Still, I like how James wants one and doesnt even know what it is.

“Maybe we should get a cat instead of an air hockey table,” said James. “Cats are cool. This one bloke in Slovakia got his jugular vein ripped out by his cat. Sirius told me.”
“I think we should name our cat something cool. Like Guadalupe. Or James. Or Balthazar. Or Jafar. Or James. Or Mister Mistoffellees. Or Tyrone. Or Mustapha. Or James. Yeah, I think I pretty much covered all of the cool names.”
^^Why would you name a cat after yourself? It's kinda cool, but in an egotistical kinda way (so sorry if anyone you know *or you* has a cat named after yourselves) and I also liked
“I read the news today,” said James.

“Oh boy,” Lily replied absentmindedly.

It really was sad that James didn’t know who John Lennon was.
^^The "I read the news today. Oh boy" isnt that from A Day In The Life from the magical *no pun intended* Sgt. Pepper's Album?

Lily picked up her notepad and her quill and yawned widely, starting her way up the steps alone. Her mind was full of so many thoughts that it hurt. She wished she could share them with James. After all, he had plenty of empty space available in his head.
^^Ack! Lily hates being married to James! I for one don't think it would be that bad... awkward... ah well, A Zizzelion and eleventy thousand/10.

Author's Response: I know the Marauders found out about Remus' furry problem in fifth year, but I don't think Lily was involved... because she wasn't really friends with those people at that point? But that might just be my opinion. Anyway, the idea is that there's a lot of stuff that James is keeping from Lily... yeppers... also, it's important. And with James not knowing air hockey or John Lennon ,if he did, I'd have to start having him knowing about Power Rangers and Jamba Juice, and then this would turn into the Dark Lord's BLog all over again! Yes, that quote is from Sgt. Pepper! HOOORAY FOR KNOWING!!!

Nice chapter... I'm also fond of the three dots and italics. And is the Phoenix Dumbledore??? It sounds like him. And I loved Snape's comment about Lily being 'proud' of being Mrs. Potter'. I forgot how to copy and paste, so I'll just type without it. Was Sirius drunk? Because even he wouldnt ask is 'baguette' was a bad name unless he was drunk. It seems like a running theme with Sirius as well (something I hate, as he's my favourite character). 1000000000/10 again, and hopefully I remember how to copy and paste in the near future. {Becca}

Author's Response: Thanks so much! I love getting reviews for this... as for the Phoenix being Dumbledore, well, you'll see! *Is mysterious* Sirius is not drunk (and if he is, he's not PARTICULARLY drunk), but he's just goofing off with the 'what did you call me?' That's a quote from youtube's Smosh comedy team... I wanted to use it somehow. But Sirius and James are both acting silly in this story, and what they do is done intentionally.

Oooooo! Very good chapter! I can picture this s actually canon. And I just have a suggestion: Are you familiar with the musical Jesus Christ: Superstar? In my religion class (the most fun class in my Catholic school, because the teacher rocks), my friend's sister goes to Nardin and they did a production of it. Julia got the DVD that Nardin made and we watched it in class. The songs are actually quite catchy and easy to turn into spoofs. Just a thought. By the way, 1000000000000/10 on this chapter.
P.S. It's cool that the only R-rated movie you got to see is Sweeney Todd. The only one I got to see was The Blues Brothers on HBO with my dad. It rocked.

Author's Response: Wow, thank you! I kind of enjoy this story, myself.. it's so zany, but so much fun to write. I love Jesus Christ: Superstar, much like nearly everything else by Andrew Lloyd Webber, but unfortunately, I've succombed to Michael Ball Syndrome. Michael Ball Syndrome is the term I've invented for when you love a musical, but then you hear the brilliant singer Michael Ball (who my OC B.C. Quinn looks exactly like) do a version of one of those songs, and then you can't stand to listen to the original version anymore. I can only hear him doing Gethsemane, "Vaults of Heaven" from Whistle Down the Wind, Raoul in Phantom of the Opera, Che in Evita, Marius in Les Mis, Edna in Hairspray, Fosco in Woman in White... the list goes on and on... so now I have trouble listening to songs from JC Superstar that aren't by Michael Ball.

Oooooooo! This was really interesting! Please post chapter 6... i think thats it... soon! I love it so far. How did you come up with the names? Their really exotic and amusing. Is that how you spell amusing? or is it a z... sorry, im unusually stupid today. 100000000/10

Author's Response: Thank you so much! Chapter Six should come AS SOON AS the very last chapter of "Potter's Pentagon: The Truth." It's already written. I think amusing is spelled like that... no z... As for the names, I was sitting in history class when writing this, and we learned about a man named Desiderius Erasmus who was a Dutch church reformer. I didn't have names for my two characters, so I named them (what else?) Desiderius and Erasmus!

I absolutely adore your characterization of Aberforth Dumbledore!


Author's Response: 0_0 Wowwwww! I adore Aberforth, and I am thrilled to be receiving a review about him!

I love it! I've read up to chapter five so far and I'm waiting impatiently for the next one!


Author's Response: Thank you so much! I haven't gotten a review for this in awhile!

I just finnished reading the scarlet pimpernel. I can`t wait to finnish your story. BTW I loved the book :)

Author's Response: Thank you! It's great to know that I'm not the only person in the world who likes the Scarlet Pimpernel. And the musical is even better!

Okay, well, I'm extremely bored, so I randomly translated the Shaving Cream song into French:
“J'ai une histoire triste pour vous dire.

Il peut blesser votre susceptibilité un peu.

Un jour, j'ai marché dans la salle de bains,

Et j'ai marché dans un grand tas de …

CRÈME À RASER! Soyez agréables et propres!

Le rasage chaque jour et vous semblerez toujours intelligents!"
Yeah it doesn't rhyme, BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE... the literal translation back into English:
"" I have a sad history to say to you.

He can hurt your touchiness a bit.

One day, I walked in the bathroom,

And I walked in a big heap of …

CREAM TO BE SHAVED! Be nice and clean!

Shave every day and you will seem always clever!"

Yes, I am bored, but it just goes to show that you can have some real fun with your stories.

Author's Response: That is hilarious... CREAM TO BE SHAVED! One time, I translated the word rn'glorious' into German and back, and it came back as 'splendourful,' which I'm pretty sure isn't a word.Also, I got this translating "Frogs Go Pop (In The Microwave)" to German and back:rnEverything we know that frogs bang go in the microwell, bang in the microwell bang in the microwell everything we know that frogs bang go in the microwell, if you switch them on!"

The scorpions ate the cockroaches. Lovely. Quite comforting. Oh, and "la tête du porc" is perfectly spelled, so claps to you (not that I'm bragging about knowing three languages, ejem ejem bot at all)

The Shaving Cream song was THE VEY BEST! Reminds me of one of the best TV shows ever, called 31 minutes... wonderful songs,  just to tell you that some are  called "My doll spoke to me", "I've got a bad haircut" and "Ma'am, give me back my soccer ball", the wholw show is with puppets and the show hero is called Diamond-Patterned-Sock Man -yes , he actually is a sock-...well, I'm guessing you get the idea. Anyways , will keep reading, write more of everything!!!

Author's Response: I have just a little bit too much luuurve for Aberforth... I'm not really sure why. I thought he was just awesome when I read DH. And it's comforting that I did the French okay, becuase I speak about as much French as Aberforth.

rnOh MY. I have to check out that show. That sounds ridiculous and awesome, and I have never heard of it. I WILL be checking this out.

Ok, so I'm sure that Dumbledore is NOT the Phoenix...

Another great chapter, good job with incorporating humour even when Snape was dejectedly contemplating Lily...

Wonderful, wonderful stuff, can't wait for an update!!!


Author's Response: Oh good, you're not supposed to think he is. I'm glad you thought this one was funny... what did you think of my Dumbledore? I was a bit anxious about that one, too.

rnI've written the next two chapters of this story, but it's my lowest priority for updates because I have a spoof, Potter's Pentagon, and three assignments for Hogwarts online classes to submit, so there probably won't be an update for a bit. Still, this story is not abandoned, and I have written more of it.

This is one of your less funnier chapters, at least the second part, but it advances the story, and is well written, so that's what counts!

*moves on to next chappie*

Author's Response: Yeah, this chapter was a struggle for me because I had to find some way to get across what James and Lily's relationship is like, and I couldn't make James's jokes too funny because otherwise, the readers wouldn't be able to sympathise with Lily's annoyance. So I basically had him act like this idiot teenaged husband named Van from a TV show I like to watch called "Reba," except Van is actually really funny. (Plus, the whole thing about cats is very important... yep...)

I see what you meant by Snape being IC in this story- he very definitely is! His slick, sarcastic oily humour (pun intended) is just like in the books!

Another side-splittingly hilarious chapter!


Author's Response: THANK YOOOOOOOU! Speaking of side-splitting, I'm grinning so widely that I think my mouth's about to split open. I was a bit worried about Snape, because he's a character I've always had a lot of trouble with... so many people write him so well, and I was always really afraid to try until this story made it necessary. I don't think he's in any of my other stories (except for the comments section of The Dark Lord's Blog, and that's not really meant to be "him," per se, because it's so wildly OOC.)

Name: Sainyn Swiftfoot (Signed) · Date: 03/25/08 5:44 · For: Chapter 2: In Which No One's Actually French Or Happy
Wow, hilarious, but at the same time you manage move the plot! I salute you!

There are way way way too many of my favourite parts in this chapter so I'm not even going to list them all, buit I loved the Shaving Cream song (do you know where the full lyrics are available?), the scorpions eating the roaches, and the line "I don't speak french, and neither do you".

You left us at a cliffhanger there! How could you!?


Author's Response: Thanks so much! I don't like stories with all humour and no plot, or all plot and no humour (even Dark Lord's Blog had a plot!), so I'm glad you think I got that balance down! For some reason, I have way too much fun writing about Aberforth... he's definitely one of my favourite characters. As for the Shaving Cream song, you can find that at... a link. I just remembered that you can't post links on here, so I'll PM it to you.

Ooh, very exciting!

So what happened was that the Phoenix was acting as Erasmus all this time?


I really liked the description of the Phoenix's and Clive's meeting, very funny!

Good work so far!

Author's Response: Thanks very much! And I can't believe you took my suggestion seriously and actually came and read this from the beta boards! The Phoenix was acting as Desiderius, who is Erasmus's son, but I think that's probably what you meant. As for the whole thing about the Phoenix's and Clive's meeting... well, this story is based on a novel/movie/musical called "The Scarlet Pimpernel," and in the original book, something rather similar happened, so I can't take full credit for that.

I'm so sad. I really love this story - so much, in fact, that after reading it I went out and read the actual 'The Scarlet Pimpernel' because I figured if it was even half as good as your story, then I would love it! (And I did. I finished it this afternoon instead of doing my homework and I think it was time well spent.) Anyway, I really love this story, but it seems like it's been abandoned, which is upsetting. I hope whatever is keeping you from updating goes away or gets fixed soon! Oh - and just one more thing. I love how silly and exagerated you've made James. Now I'm just waiting for him to say "Odd's fish!" (which, in my opinion, was the funniest part of Baroness Orczy's entire book). Please update!

Author's Response: The queue is closed now, but I have chapters six and seven written and will submit them as soon as it opens again (Well not AS soon... I have a chapter of Potter's Pentagon and a Wicked spoof to submit first, but then I'm turning my attention to "Love a Duck!" again.)

I didn't update for awhile because I was banned from the computer except for half an hour on weekends, and there wasn't enough time to type up the chapters, though I had written them. I usually used my time to submit chapters of Potter's Pentagon. Then when I was ready to submit, the queue got closed!!!

I'm sooo glad I converted you to reading Scarlet Pimpernel (and it's pretty cool that now you know what I was at in my characterization of James and Snape and company ;) ). If you like musical theatre, there's a Broadway show of Scarlet Pimpernel, and you can hear several of the songs on youtube. They did deviate from the plot of the book, but it's one of my most favourite musicals (and the source of the song quotes at the beginning and end of the chapters) and stars my favourite actor, Terrence Mann, as Chauvelin. Percy (Douglas Sills) is another favourite actor of mine, and he's exactly as I imagined Percy.

I LOVE saying Odd's Fish... and 'sink me.' But my favourite part of the book was the whole scene with Chauvelin and Percy in the cafe where Percy's talking about how soup is "a demmed awkward thing," and just babbling on and Chauvelin's giving him his death glare... and that whole 'pepper in the snuffbox' scene.

Ohh... Please update. And btw What is the Theo story?

Author's Response: I would love to update... hopefully, I will this weekend. The Theo story is called "Nott On Your Life," and it's for the Gauntlet.

Hey, dahling... is this story going to updated soon? It hasn't been since, like, before Turkey Day...

But this is a very nice story, with interesting characterizations, so take your time *coughNOTSPAMcough*

Author's Response: WHOOPSIES!

Author's Response: Hey, thank you! I promise this story is NOT abandoned, and it's not exactly on hiatus... I just don't have enough time to type it up. I do have the whole story written.

OH, I know a word that's quite nasty;
But still it does rhyme with maggot!
And this little word that's so nasty
Just happens to sound like--
SHAVING CREAM, be nice and clean!
Shave every day and you'll always look keen!

Ah, yes, worst parody ever...Oh well. Speaking of shaving cream, if Snape has such greasy hair, why does he bother shaving? You'd think a man with such terrible hygiene would be covered in beards and mustaches...greasy beards and mustaches.


Demons danced in the fire of his eyes, roasting marshmallows on the ends of their pitchforks.

Now THAT is an excellent description! *giggles* Very cute, in a way, too.

THE PHEONIX LIVES!!!!!!!!!!!! MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Um..yes. I can find nothing more to review, because I'm feeling lazy...If the paint comes off of the bottom of your pudding bowl, do you get lead poisoning? My arm is acting all funny now...*yawns* I shall, eventually, return to read the rest of this! And that will hopefully be soon...

I am very put out with my computer. It said that Pentagon had been updated and I was like HALLELUJAH! But then it said access denied...


Hm, yes, I loved the pink teacups! In a weird way, they're very Voldemort...maybe he's a pansy?

I have a very short attention span today. And now I'll stop clogging whatever up and press send!~


Author's Response: Hahahahahah, I love the song spoof at the beginning. All of your reviews are always enjoyable.

In MY story, Snape has a skimpy little mustache and goatee, but not very sucessful ones. I do, however, love the imagery of a man "covered in greasy beards and mustaches."

HOLY GYM SHORTS, BAT MAN! Whoever would make pudding bowls done up in lead paint? Pudding is too good to be poisonous! Potter's Pentagon IS updated now, so go check it out when you can!

No, no, Pansy is an entirely different character! ^_^

what's the don't step on the duck joke?
Comments at your Funeral
Three friends die in a car accident and they go to an orientation in heaven. They are all asked, "When you are in your casket and friends and family are mourning you, what would you like to hear them say about you? The first guy says,” I would like to hear them say that I was a great doctor of my time, and a great family man." The second guy says, "I would like to hear that I was a wonderful husband and school teacher which made a huge difference in our children of tomorrow." The last guy replies, "I would like to hear them say ... Look, He's Moving!
hope you enjoy the jokes! :)

Author's Response: Hahahahahaha... I like that one. But... please don't leave any more jokes on my review page. It's not that I don't like them, because I love them. But the mods get irritated at me. You can always email me through the link on my profile or send me a PM on the forums.

For the duck joke, you have to pick the names of three guys... but don't post your choices on the review page, please and carrots.
