horse in the forest

Remus Lupin Headcannon

- So one time some first year girl is crying because she thinks there are werewolves in the forbidden forest

- and Remus can’t stand to see her cry out of fear (of him)

- so Sirius and James go over and try to comfort the girl, telling her how nice werewolves are and how they’re just human etc

- and Remus is crying bc he has the best pals ever

- and the girl is like “why are you crying? Huh! You’re a werewolf!”

- and the boys are sweating

- but the rest of the common room burst out laughing

- “remus a werewolf?!”

- “can u imagine a werewolf that just wants to sit inside and read books all day?!”

- so the boys fake laugh too

- and it starts popping up in conversation all over school

- worst kept secret: remus is a werewolf!!

- and it turns into a literal meme that plain ol’ remus is a werewolf

- so the best way to hide his secret is in plain sight

- remus and the boys are sneaking off? Must be a full moon!

- a horse was found dead in the forest? Remus was that you?

- remus found that joke hilarious

- he was practically howling!!

- be my potions partner? No? Guess you’re a lone wolf…
