HAPPY BIRTHDAY, shimotsuki! Thanks for inspiring us all with your Kaleidoscope stories, for bringing us together as a community in places like rt_morelove, and for being such a supportive friend and reader of others' stories. As soon as JKR announced that Sirius Black shared a birthday with you, I knew I had to write you something for the day…it was simply a question of what. Hope you enjoy!
Sirius Black and the Case of the Missing Dirigible Plums
Summary: There’s a mystery afoot in Gryffindor Tower, and Sirius is going to get to the bottom of it: Who stole the dirigible plums?
Characters: Sirius Black, James Potter, Lily Evans
Words: ca. 2,500
Notes: Happy birthday, shimotsuki! This fic is for you, who share a very special birthday with one Sirius Black. As I pondered “What Can I Write About That’s Sirius-Centric And Shimotsuki Will Enjoy?” I thought of your love of mystery stories, and our shared appreciation of Dorothy L. Sayers’ books. And I had a very silly idea.
Characters belong to J.K. Rowling; plot elements shamelessly and zanily lifted from “Talboys” by Dorothy L. Sayers. (Forgive me for leaving out the snake and the child-rearing debates...but you’ll find most of the rest intact!)( Sirius Black and the Case of the Missing Dirigible Plums )
