So, just to let you all know, C and I screwed up and neither of us logged our last IM RP (which was rather good, just for the record). We don't feel like re-playing it, so I'm just going to give a quick summary of what happened. Remus found Sev in the library (as posted in the last entry) and they wandered back to Severus' dormitory. On the way, Remus expressed his concerns about the funny acrid scent he's been smelling on Sirius, and when they arrived in the Slytherin dormitories, Sev took him to have a wiff of Lucius' corner. Surprise surprise, they smelled identical. Of course, Remus was still clueless, so Severus had to explain (slowly and clearly) that Lucius had a few bad habits -- namely snorting a bit of coke. Once he put two and two together, Remus finally began to understand why Sirius had been avoiding him over break, why he smelled funny, etc. He was a bit distraught, to say the least, and a sickly-sweet little hurt-comfort drama ensued between him and Sev. Needless to say, at the end of it all, Severus convinced Remus (who was afraid of ruining his friendship with Sirius by making Sirius mad at him) to confront his idiot Gryffindor friend and try to get him to clean up his act. Remus left Severus with strict orders to get some sleep, and a promise to report back with the details of his confrontation with Sirius.
