As per this meme, ask Lily anything you like.
OK, we all joke about Lily's boy-crazy ways. Time to spill. If it weren't for HMS Ginger, and if she could have anyone she wanted in the school -- regardless of gender, species, or plotline -- who'd it be? Like Dieter, list your top 5!
(is already sad that Homsar probably won't be on the list)
(Like good student, Lily is answering in list form. Unlike a good student, she is swearing under her breath the whole time.)
1. Sirius Black
2. Stephen Maturin
3. Robin Goodfellow
4. Daniel Jackson
5. Sarah Williams
(6. Homsar - if he can satisfy the great Sirius Black, there must be SOMETHING there, right?)
1. *lips are sealed!*
2. Ah, that's the beauty of the purely OOC meme! Though does that mean Lily also secretly had a thing for Dumbledore back in the day?
3. Socking is IN this year.
4. I wouldn't kick him out of bed for eating crackers.
5. OMG SPECIAL HELL *drools*
(6. HMS Jengalicious FTW. If only it would happen in HH canon ... )
He's sodding incredible in bed.
*pauses* *the potion compels her*
He's a good man. And I'm not talking about the typical 'decent bloke, middle of the road' type that most men fall under. He's one of the best I've ever met. He's kind. He never treats me like I'm substandard or below his notice. He smiles when he sees me.
He cares, so intently - though he'd kill me if he knew I knew. *smiles a little* He's brilliant, and he knows it. But the smallest bit of affection, he acts as though I'd given him the world. He makes me laugh. He makes me happy.
And he's not a gigantic marshmallow wearing a bowler hat, so I think he has Homsar beat, yeah?
Aha. Clearly there are two Coxes at the school. One of them is an angry, miserable sod with a drinking problem and tendencies towards physical violence who enjoys making other people just as unhappy as he is. The other one is the one you're dating.
If these Coxes are in fact one and the same, how do you reconcile them? And how do you explain the fact that everyone at the school besides you (and Sirius, I suppose) has only met Angry!Cox rather than Sensitive!Cox?
I can't possibly believe someone like him is good in bed, by the way.
Lily, who was not happy
Then, with a sigh, she answered through gritted teeth. "I honestly don't know for sure, but at this point I couldn't rule it out. Not because I've thought about it before - because I wasn't lying, I really have never, even for a second, considered you in that fashion - but because of the conversation we had earlier. You strike me as different now that what I've known of you before, and I can't say for sure how I'd feel about you in some hypothetical future."
Snorting slightly, she rolled her eyes. "Happy?" she muttered.
