fun fact time:
my car is named Dave. he is a turquoise 2000 Buick Regal and is very sturdy. he has bumped into multiple cars and even a telephone pole and only ever had to have his right headlight replaced! he might not have a wiper on his back window, but he has lots of other neat features, like turning on from far away and putting his lights on when it’s dark without me having to tell him to (even though I have to remind him to shut them off once we get where we’re going). and if I ever forget to put the car in park or take the keys out of the ignition or buckle my seatbelt he tells me. Dave is a good car.
The marauders sitting in the common room doing homework and James is reading for an assignment and he thinks it’s stupid and just yells “are you fucking serious?!”
Remus says “yes” before thinking it through and begins contemplating a jump off the astronomy tower. Sirius looks momentarily horrified then Peter passes over a galleon to James and they move on with their homework as if it never happened.
