Young Remus Lupin Imagine - A Confrontational Boyfriend
Can I please have a young Remus one in which some Slytherins start body-shaming Y/N or the reader or whatever and Remus becomes really angry and dark for like the first time since they knew each other and he beats the shit out of the Slytherins and gets detention and stuff but he says that it was worth it and he’ll protect you. Also, Y/N and Remus are already together and this scene kinda scares Y/N but Remus calms her down. Thank youu :)) - requested by anon
I’ve been wanting to do a Remus Lupin one for a while! Hope you like it! :)
I could hear Severus Snape and the Carrows’ comments from across the room. They were talking about me, again. I had been bullied by them for years, and they always said the same things.
“Look how fat she is,” I heard Alecto say. “Why would she wear that? It only makes her look worse.”
You might think the same remarks would eventually stop hurting me, but no, their comments still stung as much as they had when I first heard them.
“Anything y/n wears makes her look bad.”
They cackled to each other, and I tried to ignore them by turning my attention back to the game of wizarding chess I was playing with Remus Lupin, my boyfriend. I was still waiting for him to make a move, but it appeared as though he had been distracted by their comments as well. He was looking sort of pale, and he was clenching and un-clenching his fist on the table.
I took his hand in mine. “Remus, it’s okay. Words can’t hurt me.”
He attempted to give me a small smile, and ordered his knight to take my bishop. But it was clear he was still distracted; he had left his king defenseless.
“How much do you think she weighs? Got to be over 90 kilos.”
“That’s it,” Remus told me, standing up and walking over to them. I tried to call him back, but he wouldn’t listen.
I watched him walk up to Snape and punch him in the face. When the boy fell over, I could see bright red blood gushing out of his nose.
There was so much blood.
I closed my eyes and tried to block out the sounds of punches and whimpering and Amycus shouting for a professor.
Why was Remus acting like this? He was usually so gentle and nice - even leading up to a full moon.
All I knew was that I had had enough of this fighting, and so I slunk out of the library by myself, but not before I saw James and Sirius join the fight, and Peter running to get Madam Pomfrey.
The next day, when Remus took his regular seat next to me at the breakfast table, I didn’t speak to him, until he took my hand and quietly said, “I’m sorry.”
Then, I couldn’t hold in my emotions.
“Remus, why did you do that? You seem like the last person to get into a fight; if I wanted a confrontational boyfriend, I’d have asked James or Sirius!”
From their seats across the table, James grinned at me and Sirius winked.
“I know,” he said sheepishly, “I shouldn’t have done it, and I won’t do it again.”
James interrupted. “He won’t need to do it again. I heard Madam Pomfrey saying they won’t be out of the hospital wing for at least three days! Why didn’t you tell us you could punch so hard?”
Remus glared at him, and turned his attention back to me. “But I couldn’t take them bullying you any more. They’re awful people, really, and I couldn’t stand to hear them say those awful things.”
I shook my head. “Violence isn’t okay. It’s not right for you to hit people, no matter what they’re saying.”
He nodded, and I sighed, “I appreciate that you were trying to help me, but I can handle them next time. Remember the bat bogey curse you taught me?”
Remus had to smile at that, and he squeezed my hand. ”Fine. Just let me know if you need anyone else beaten up.”
I rolled my eyes and kissed him on the cheek. “You’re an idiot.”
