let me present to you: marauders slam poetry au
remus would be so nervous when stepping on the scene the first time, his breathing getting raggedly, but he does it, and the applause is mindblowing and he almost runs down and sirius is there to hug him and tell he did great
remus writes both about trans issues and mental health issues. he writes this one poem about having a panic attack with his binder on and he almost starts crying on stage because it’s so brutally raw and honest but it’s so good to get it out and it feels amazing when people applaud and scream and “oh.”
sirius mostly dabbles in gender/queer stuff. he writes this one poem titled “HOW TO EXPLAIN TO YOUR PARENTS THAT THEY ONLY HAVE ONE SON.” it took him a lot to get that one out and regulus is in the crowd to hug him afterwards. him and remus also collabs.
james writes love poems (sorry but that is canon) but he also writes race related stuff. a lot of his works are actually quite comedic and all of them are so sharp they could cut you.
peter is super super super talented and does stuff related to the body positivity movement (him and lily have a collab on society’s different attitudes towards plus size women and plus size men) and race related stuff.
lily writes some GREAT ones on rape culture and misogyny. she does a rly great one on catcalling throughout her life, like a progression sort of thing, the different times it happened and how she felt every time. she’s generally badass as fuck.
basically the marauders + lily doing slam poetry and being the outspoken blatantly queer and feminist kids your parents warned u about and fighting social injustices with the wildest weapon of them all: words.
