Omg... Remus in Beauty and The Beast... when he turns back into a man... the parallel being him after a full moon. 😭
Tears slipped out of the corners of your eyes as you clutched Remus’ limp body. The villagers had left him in very bad shape. Blood was gushing and his breathing was slowing.
“Remus, please,” you whimpered, grasping at his fur. “Don’t leave me.”
The stag, dog, and rat that also inhabited the castle paced around the two of you, the dog whining softly. With its snout, it nudged at Remus’ unmoving carcass.
“I love you,” you sobbed burying your face in his soft fur. “I’m sorry I never told you.”
Light streaked through the sky and Remus was lifted into the air by some unseen force. Before your eyes, Remus transformed from a self-described beast into a handsome man.
Returning to the ground, the lean man with sandy-brown hair stared at his hands in awe.
His eyes hesitantly met yours. The same warm brown eyes that you had grown so fond of now inhabited the face of the stranger before you.
“(Y/N), it’s me,” he admitted softly.
“Remus?” you asked, your voice shaky.
“You broke the curse,” he mused, still unsure of his newly reclaimed status as a man.
He nodded, a smile playing on his lips, “You said you love me.”
“I meant it,” you blushed, your eyes suddenly very interested in the ground.
He took a step toward you, a hand tentatively reaching out to cup your cheek, “I love you too.”
Remus slowly brought his lips to yours. The kiss was soft and sweet. A long time coming. You probably would have stayed locked in that position for ages had you not been interrupted by a chorus of whooping.
Pulling apart quickly, you saw three boys rushing toward the two of you.
“Thank God!” said a tall, ebony-haired boy.
“We thought we’d be stuck that way forever,” clarified a messy-haired boy with glasses hanging off the tip of his nose.
“We are eternally grateful, (Y/N),” added a mousy boy.
“The confidence you all had in me is astounding,” Remus joked as the boys tackled him in a bear hug. “I believe you’ve met Sirius, James, and Peter, though admittedly not in these forms.”
