It turns out that there are no books containing any substantial information on poltergeists. This shouldn't surprise me. Peeves came with the castle and no one knows what to do with him. But he fears the Baron, which as we all know is about the only leverage you can use against him.

I think, though, that the key to dealing with Peeves, and perhaps any poltergeist, really, is to earn their respect. I certainly don't think I'm that good, nor do I really care if I have Peeves' respect. But I do think fighting fire with fire could prove beneficial here. I am a Marauder, afterall.

So I tried it. Next time you see Peeves, ask him how the pepper's working out for him. Of course, he probably won't answer amidst the sneezing.

You got one up on Peeves? Good on you, Moony! What'd you do to him?

He was floating around carrying mistletoe, and I can only assume he wanted a good laugh in making odd couples kiss. Well, he saw me walking past a group of second years---thought it was an ideal moment, I guess---so I transfigured his mistletoe into a down-turned pepper shaker and blew it in his face. Only downside is that the second years may be questioning my sexuality.

Brill! Nicely done, mate. And bugger the second years, they don't know what the word "sexuality" means. They're toddlers.

I beg to differ. I did know you and Padfoot during second year, you know.

Ah, but we were different, my dear Moony. We were never toddlers, even when we were toddlers.

Is this another tirade on the benefits of being the Manliest of Men, et cetera? I was really waiting for the abridged version.

You actually know the phrase 'abridged version'?

Oh, that I do know, but with books, Moony? Books?

I was speaking figuratively, of a strange and unusual world not unlike our own, but in which you've written a book. I think, for that, I could make an exception to my Unabridged Only stance.

Don't think I haven't appreciated it.

Least you can do, you great pillock. Anyway, if I wrote a book it'd either be about practical jokes or Quidditch. In the one case, you'd read it cover to cover, and in the other you wouldn't touch the thing. None of this abridged nonsense.

Oh, I'm glad it worked! Peeves won't know what to do with himself, now the prefects are fighting back! I don't know about earning his respect, but I like the idea of fighting fire with fire. I'll keep that in mind the next time he inhabits one of the suits of armour. He's already scared four first year girls witless with that one.
