    Wild Things

    Wild Things by Lady Balin

    Summary: Lily encounters Padfoot, Wormtail, Moony, and Prongs in their animal forms. Hilarity, romance, and possibly some illicit groping ensue. Humour, 8,329 Words.

    Why You Should Care: This is another one of those ideas that had never before occurred to me, but now seems so bloody obvious.  As the summary indicates, there is a twitch of romance, definitely some groping, and a heaping spoonful of hilarity.  I chuckled — I chuckled particularly hard at Peter’s chapter.  Very enjoyable situational comedy.

    Why You Might Not Care: When you stop and really think about it, the plot is a little contrived, but such is all stuff worthy of situational comedy — it relies on one-in-a-million chances, strange coincidences, and having the absolute worst possible thing happen at exactly the moment you wouldn’t want it to happen.  The predictable nature is part of what makes it funny — don’t look too deep, that will just ruin it.
