Dear Journal,

This morning I got woken up by Lily and Teddy both jumping on the bed.

“Today’s the day! You’re getting married!” She said.

I smiled instantly. Merlin, today was the day.. I’ve been waiting for this moment since Sirius proposed in 7th year. Teddy jumped in my arms and I hugged him tightly.

“Have you slept well love?” I asked Teddy, remembering how cuddled up we fell asleep.

He nodded with a big smile on face. I kissed both of his cheeks and placed his messy curls.

“Maybe you should go wake up Padda love, we don’t want him to show up at the wedding in pyjama’s!” I said, hugging Teddy once again.

“Okay! Kissie!” Teddy said, making a kissy face.

I gave him a quick kiss and he ran to the door with Lily following him. I colapsed on my bed and smiled to myself. I was nervous but so excited to marry Sirius. I started getting ready and Lily came back with her dress on. She looked breathtakingly beautiful.

“Wow Lily.. You look amazing!” I said, hugging her again.

“Thank you Remus.. Do you mind if I get ready here? I don’t want you to be alone.” She said, her smile still present.

“It’s okay, I actually need help with my hair.. they’re a bit messy and I can’t style them properly.. Can you help me?” I asked.

She placed my curls so they would stay on place all day long. I felt a bit fancy with all those hair products in my curls!

As I was putting on my suit, I heared a knock on the door. Mum and Dad.

“Oh Honey look at you!” Mum said with tears in her eyes.

“Mum please you’re going to make me cry!” I said, hugging her small figure.

“I’m so proud of you my son.” Dad said, joining the hug.

“I love you both..” I whispered.

Teddy then came rushing in with a piece of paper in his small hand.

“Padda is awake!” He yelled, handing me the paper.

“Thank you Teddy. Do you want to go get ready with grandpa?” I asked.

“Okay!” He smiled, taking dad’s hand.

I unfolded the piece of paper and instantly recognized Sirius’ neat handwritting.

“I can’t wait to marry you my love… See you down the aisle.. Sirius xox”

I smiled and hugged the paper to my heart. Sirius was maybe a badboy heartbraker but sometimes he was just as romantic. I folded the paper and placed it into my suit pocket so it could be with me all day long. I couldn’t wait to put it in my memory box at home. I started working on my bow tie but Sirius usualy helps me with it. Mum noticed my strugle and helped me tie it beautifuly and whispered in my ear.

“You know, I always knew you two would end up together. The way you talked about him and the way he looked at you.. it was written in the sky.” She said.

“I love him so much mum.” I smiled.

“Oh honey I know you do. I’m so glad you found someone perfect for you. You found the right man.” She smiled.

She then left to go get her hair done with Lily. I was alone in my room, ready as I’ll ever be. I stared at my reflexion. One of my old scars could be seen on my neck but I didn’t think about it because I knew Sirius loves them. I took out my vows and read them again. Was it too cheesy? I hope not.. Suddently I heared a soft knock in the door. I instanlty recognized the voice.

“Moons?” Sirius asked.

“Pads? Don’t come in here you’ll break the tradition!” I said, running to the door.

“I won’t love.. I won’t.. I just wanted to hear your voice that’s all..” He said.

I leaned my back against the wooden door and closed my eyes, imagining Sirius’ face in my head.

“I’m nervous Pads..” I said.

“It’s just me love.. don’t be nervous..” he said.

“I just want to hold your hand.. It would calm me.” I said.

The door cracked open and his hand peaked in. I took it and squeezed it.

“I can’t wait to see you..” he said.

“Me too..”

After a few minutes, James entered and told me it was time. The room we had reserved was actually a rooftop from which we could see the Eiffel tower. It was beautiful. The flowers made it even prettier. Lily was holding her flowers, ready to walk the aisle with Teddy’s hand in hers.

“You can do this Remus.” She smirked.

I took a deep breath and the music started. My heart started pounding. Lily took Teddy’s hand and walked down the aisle to the music. My mum was the one walking me down the aisle. I felt safe with her by my side. She wrapped her arm around mine and smiled. That was it. It was our moment. Sirius’ and I.

I walked down the aisle and the moment I saw Sirius, I felt all my worries go away. He was so handsome. Merlin I was lucky. His black hair neatly placed, his flushed cheeks and his shaky hands. Suddently I just wanted to run and jump in his arms. He was biting his lip and tears were running down his cheeks. James had a big smile on his face and also had his hand on Sirius’ shoulder. Sirius’ eyes never left mine. He wipped his tears away and smiled. When I arrived at the altar, I gave my mum a kiss and Sirius took both of my hands. I looked into his grey eyes and he mouthed me something while the priest talked.

“We gather here to unite these two lovers in marriage..” The priest said.

“You look beautiful.” Sirius mouthed, not caring about the wedding that was going on.

I smiled and blushed.

“I love you” I mouthed back.

To be honest, I wasn’t really listening to the priest either. He was saying some nonsence! I couldn’t stop looking at Sirius. His eyes were still a bit glossy but he looked so handsome. I got woken up from my dreamland when I heared the priest say some important words.

“It is now time for you both to read your vows.” He said, nodding so I could go first.

“Hum.. okay. My dear Sirius, I can’t even put to words how much you mean to me. Believe me, I would write it in the sky, carve it on mountains and scream it on rooftops. Since the day I met you, I had this feeling in my stomach. The feeling that makes you happy. After all these years of me loving you, the feeling is still there. I want it to be there until my heart beats his last beat because I know that my heart will always beat for you. Yesterday you asked me if I thought we were meant to happen.. I would say it’s more than that. We were made for eachother. I love you so much Sirius. I will always love you, to the moon and back…” I said, looking up from my shaking hands holding the paper.

Sirius was crying and smiling at the same time. I wanted to kiss him. To hug him. He wipped his tears away and took his paper out of his pocket, his hands shaking.

“Well, it’ll be hard to top that.. okay..When I was younger.. Before I went to Hogwarts .. I always thought I would hate my life. I thought I would have to live with a pureblood wife.. I didn’t want this life.. But when I saw you Remus, I knew anything was possible. I knew i could be loved and more important, i knew I could be with someone I love. I was always taught that love wasn’t real. That you couldn’t fall in love. But when I saw you I found it hard to believe. Imagining my life without you is painful. You are my whole world Remus. We’ve been through so much.. I love you.. to the moon and back…” he said, tears running down his cheeks.

I was also crying. Merlin I loved him so much. I extended my hand to wipe his tears away which made our family and friends laugh. The priest smiled and continued talking.

“Remus John Lupin, do you take Sirius Orion Black to be your husband? Do you promise to be faithful to him in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health, to love him and to honor him all the days of your life?” He asked.

I smiled and looked into Sirius’ eyes.

“I do.”

“Sirius Orion Black, do you take Remus John Lupin to be your husband? Do you promise to be faithful to him in good times and in bad, in sickness and in health, to love him and to honor him all the days of your life?” He repeated.

“I do” Sirius said, looking into my eyes.

“ I can now pronounce you.. Husband and Husband!” The priest laughed. “You may now kiss.”

Sirius layed his hands on my cheeks and crashed his lips on mine. It was the best kissed we ever shared. Our family and friends were all cheering. Teddy ran to us and Sirius picked him up so we could have a family hug.

We spent the night with our friends and family. It was amazing. Everyone was so happy for us. We danced a lot! It was the best night of our lives. James even made a speach using only words with no a’s which was pretty funny to listen to. It was perfect.

When it was getting really late, everyone came back to the hotel. Teddy was asleep in his car seat and it was adorable. James and Lily were going to babysit him for our first night as husbands. James had told us that they would take care of him and we could have fun.

“C'mon we all know you’re going to have some fun.. Soooo we got you two a royal suite!!” James said, smirking.

“Are you insane!!” I said.

“Nope! You two go have fun.” He smirked, giving us the royal suite key.

Sirius and I walked to the room and it was beautiful! The bed was giant! Sirius and I laughed because we always joke about how we can both sleep in a single bed, cuddled up. Just like our Hogwarts times.

“Okay, my dear husband, now we get you out of this suit.” Sirius laughed.

We both undressed slowly. Sirius kissed every inch of my body while my hands touched every inch of his. His broad shoulders were full of marks. So was my neck and collarbone. Our hands tangled in eachothers hair. It was slow and pleasurable. We kissed and kissed and kissed.. It was perfect. Being alone with Sirius made me happy. Plus, he kept calling me “husband” and I couldn’t stop smiling. Once we collapsed on the bed, panting and sweating, Sirius laughed.

“Oh my god..” Sirius said.

“What?”

“We just had sex for the first time as husbands!” He said.

I just started laughing.

“Merlin you’re so funny!” I giggled.

“C'mere.. I want to cuddle you.” He said, wrapping his arms around me.

“Your vows were beautiful..” i said.

“You think so? Yours made me cry!” He chuckled.

“I love you.” I said, kissing him.

“I love you too baby.”

“Wanna get some sleep?” I asked.

“Yeah.. I’m exhausted.. Goodnight my Husband.” He said, kissing my forehead and then my lips.

“Goodnight my husband.. It’s weird to finally say it.” I chuckled.

“It is. But i can get use to it. It suits you well.” He smiled.

“I love you Sirius.” I said.

“I love you too.”

We fell asleep cuddled into one another. His hands on my bare back and mine on his bare chest. We were united. We were finally married.

Dear Journal,

Days without classes are amazing! Sirius and I cuddled all day long. James had left to go meet with Lily around 11 o'clock and Peter was nowhere to be found. We were still tangled up in our makeshift bed near the window. Sirius’ hand was still laying under my shirt. His palm was warm and it sent shivers through my back. I slowly tilted my head to leave soft kisses on his jaw.

“Mhmm.. goodmorning baby..” He mumbled.

“Goodmorning love. Have you slept well?” I asked.

“Yes, i love when you cuddle me so close..” he said, kissing me forehead.

“Do you want to grab a hot chocolate and croissants?”

“Sure! How about we go eat them by the lake?”

“That’s a great idea love!”

We got ourselves dressed and walked up to the kitchens. Sirius greeted the house elves and asked for two hot chocolates and two croissants. We then walked outside and sat on a bench, eating our warm breakfast. The air was fresh and the sky was cloudy. Sirius asked me if I read a good book recently. He never talks about books!

“Why do you want to know that?” I giggled.

“I like when you talk about books! Your eyes light up and you get all smily!” He said, brushing his hand on my thigh.

I told him about the book he bought me. He was looking right into my eyes with a smile on his lips. Suddently, we heard a voice behind us. It was Regulus.

“Sirius, can I talk to you?” He asked.

His hair were messy and his brows were furrowed. He looked mad, but also sad.

“Yeah, sure..” Sirius said, getting up from the bench.

“Alone. Please.” Regulus said, looking at me.

“Oh sorry! I’ll wait for you in the common room pads.” I said.

“Okay..”

I started to walk back to the castle and heard Regulus scream something at Sirius. I looked back and Regulus was pushing Sirius on the ground, holding him by the collar. I ran back and tried to seperate them. Once Regulus got off of him, i helped Sirius get up from the ground.

“MOTHER TOLD ME YOU RAN AWAY! YOU LEFT ME ALL ALONE IS THAT IT?!!” He screamed with angry tears in his eyes.

“I HAD NO CHOICE! I’M SORRY THAT YOU FELT BETRAYED BUT SHE HATES ME REG! I WOULD’VE ENDED UP DEAD IF I STAYED THERE!” Sirius screamed back, also crying.

“I thought we were brothers… I thought you loved me..” Regulus said, sitting on the ground, sobbing.

“Reg… I do love you.. But I couldn’t stay there.. You know how hard it was for me..” Sirius said, slowly approaching his broken brother.

“It’s hard for me too Sirius.. I have to be perfect all the time… Mother said I was arranged to marry this Slytherin Pureblood girl. Apparently she’s from a respected familly… But I don’t love her.. I love someone else.. And it breaks my heart because she will never approve it.” He said, hugging his legs close to his chest.

“Reggie.. I-I didn’t know you were going through all of this.. I’m sorry.. I.. I can help you if you want.. I’ll be there for you.. i don’t want you to think that I don’t love you because I really do. You are my brother after all, we have to help eachother.” Sirius said, sitting beside him, hugging him.

I smiled to myself and stepped back to let them be alone.

“I’m sorry Sirius.. I’m sorry I screamed, I’m sorry I didn’t believe in you..” Regulus said, slow tears running down his red cheeks.

“It’s okay Reggie.. I’m the one who’s sorry.. I should’ve told you that I ran away.. I-I just could face you.. I’m sorry..” Sirius said, hugging Regulus even closer.

“I love you Sirius.. Even though we don’t have the best relationship.. I still love you big brother..”

“Oh I love you to Regulus.. So much..”

“Will you help me please.. with my wedding arrangement and all?” Regulus asked.

“Of course.. I’m here for you.. Who is that girl? That you’re in love with?” Sirius asked.

“I’ve never noticed her before… About a weeks ago, I bumped into her in the hall and she looked at me with her big green eyes and her blond curly hair were all messy.. She was beautiful.. You might know her, she’s in Gryffindor.. Her name is Sophie..” Regulus said, smiling.

I gasped and put my hands on my mouth. He was in love with Sophie. Lily’s Cousin. Sirius turned his head towards me and sent me a look. He smirked and tried to hold back a giggle.

“What? Do you know her?” Regulus asked.

“I do. She is Lily’s cousin.”

“Lily has a cousin? I thought she was a muggleborn?”

“Sophie is too.”

“Oh… my chances are screwed..” Regulus said, looking down.

“Don’t say that Reggie.. If you are nice to her, she will definetly like you back.” Sirius said.

“You think so? I mean.. I’m a slytherin and a pureblood..”

“She won’t care..” Sirius said, patting his brothers back.

They stood up and hugged again.

“Thank you Sirius..”

“No, thanks to you.. We’ll get through this I promise.” Sirius whispered in his ear.

“Can we spend more time together? I miss you..” Regulus asked.

“Of course! Do you want to eat at our table for dinner?”

“Heum.. Only if your friends agree..” He said, looking down.

“You are more than welcome.” I said.

“Thank you..”

We walked back to the castle and McGonagall wanted to talk to Sirius. Regulus and I were waiting for him a couple feets away.

“Remus?” Regulus asked.

“Yes?”

“You make him happy. It’s hard for him with all our family problems. You fixed his broken heart. Thank you for that.”

“He makes me happy too.”

When Sirius came back, we walked to the great hall to go eat dinner. We sat face to face in our usual spot and Regulus sat next to Sirius. A few Gryffindors sent him glares but he tried to ignore them. We were eating today’s soup when James, Lily and Sophie arrived. Regulus’ cheeks instantly went red and he looked down.

“Hi boys! Oh Hi Regulus!” James said, as if it was normal to see him.

He sat next to me and Lily sat next to him, leaving Sophie to sit beside Regulus.

“Sophie, this is my little brother, Regulus.” Sirius said.

“Oh hi! Didn’t I bumped into you last week?” She asked, recognizing him.

“Actually I’m pretty sure I was the one who bumped into you..” he said, blushing and noticing her french accent.

“I didn’t know you were Sirius’ brother. Are you as flirty as he is?” She smiled, giggling.

“Oh no! He got all the charms.” He giggled too.

“Well, it’s nice to properly meet you Regulus!” She said, also blushing.

They talked all evening. Sirius was smiling to himself.

After dinner we went back to bed. We had classes tommorow morning and Sirius was tired. He layed his head on my chest while I read a few chapters of my book with my fingers running on his bare back.

“Moons?”

“Yeah?”

“I love you.”

“I love you too babe.”

“Goodnight moons.”

“Goodnight Pads.”

February 8th 1976

What are we? Wolfstar HC
  • Sirius being super confused about his thing with Remus when he realizes he fancies the boy.
  • One day he comes to James like:
  • Dude, i’m in love with werewolf McWerewolf
  • And James being all: No??? Really? I couldn’t have imagined!!
  • You don’t sound impressed at all
  • Because I’m not, you twat, you are dating each other!
  • No we are not Jamie, well.. at least I don’t think so.. I think I would know if I was dating the most amazing person on this world aside from me.
  • First, you are super cheesy pads; second, I’m the most amazing person on this world even over you, and third, yes you are, you call each other cheesy nicknames and cuddle and are always touching… It’s kinda uncomfortable sometimes, specially since Lily wouldn’t be lovey with me on public. It would be ridiculous for you not to be together when you are cheesier than Lils and I.
  • I tell you we are not. Or at least I don’t think so. I mean… We have never talked about it.. Maybe that’s just the way he acts with me.
  • You are an idiot Pads. If you need an invitation then just go and ask him.
  • I can’t ask him that!!
  • Oh, yes you can, because if not i will and because I dare you!
  • So Sirius had basically no option.
  • Sirius Black never backed up from a dare.
  • Never
  • So asked Moony while he was trying to read
  • Do you mean it?
  • Without lowering his book: do I mean what pads?
  • That you love me Ended up blurted out
  • Remus lowered his book realizing the thing was getting Sirius and hesitated a little.
  • What do you mean?
  • I mean i think i love you Remus, I think I really love you and I’m not forcing you into feeling the same for me but we cuddle and say i love you and hold hands and you caress my hair and we wear each others clothes and you make me so much good. So I don’t know if you want anything Sirius with me and I would totally understand if you don’t because i’m a fucking mess and you shouldn’t be with me just because I love you. And I would totally get also if you haven’t figured it out yet and I wouldn’t mind waiting for you even if the answer is that you don’t want to be with me. But Jamie thinks we are dating and I don’t actually know if we are but i think we are not because we have never established anything and sometimes i feel like you love me the same as i do and others i feel like i’m just your friend, even sometimes i think i bother you or that i’m too intrusive and suffocating  and i hate myself because i think i’m going to lose y—
  • He had to stop there because the words were muffled first by Remus’ lips and then by his tongue.
  • After several minutes of making out at the middle of Gryffindor’s common room they stopped for air.
  • What is that supposed to mean?
  • That you are an oblivious idiot Padfoot.
  • Another peck
  • No, but, exactly. I just don’t understand the hole dating thing, why does it have to be so secretive and confusing? Why can’t people just talk about how they feel? why do i have to figure out if you are actually into me so that i can dare to kiss you risking our friendship if you are not.
  • You weren’t even going to ask me anything, you just did because Prongs dared you, and it was me the one who kissed you.
  • The bastard told you didn’t he?
  • Of course he did! He was as surprised as me that you had no idea we were dating.
  • Why didn’t you tell me anything, or at least kissed me? I would have figured out we were dating or at least that i had the most gigantic crush on you if you had done any of those things.
  • I just assumed we just haven’t gotten into kissing territory yet.
  • Oh darling, if we are dating we are always into kissing territory.
  • Lily: [after Astronomy Class] Did you know that Muggles put a man on the moon in 1969.
  • James: I don't believe that for a second.
  • Lily: It's true. they had a rocketship and special suits so they could breathe.
  • Peter: [quietly] What's a rocketship?
  • Sirius: More important question! What happens if a werewolf gets put on the moon?!
  • Lily: Oh Come on! What are the odds of that?
  • James: No, No Evans! Hear the man out! What would happen if you put a werewolf on the moon Pads?
  • Remus: [sweating nervously in the background]
Remus x Reader: Icey

Warnings: blood, injury, i think thats all 

Requested: Yes

A/N: OOOH I enjoyed this, if you don’t get it- Y/N is ‘Icey’ bc arctic fox :) Remember to send imagine/ ship requests and enjoy reading lovelies!!xx

“Looking forward to this homework Icey?” Padfoot asked as you left the transfiguration homework.

“I don’t know, could be a hard one- ‘How to become animagi’.” You said, pulling your eyebrows together dramatically.

The boys chuckled, well aware that you had done all of the research when the 4 of you turned into animagi.

“Well, I’m good for something.” Remus joked, turning a corner to get to the Northern Tower.

You settled into the table next to the window, with Remus sat opposite you and the other boys in the table behind.

“Students, today we are going to be learning the art of card divination,” you raised your eyebrows and widened your eyes dramatically to Remus before your Professor continued, “for this we use Tarot cards. With your partners try to understand the cards.”

You picked up the pack on your table and spread them out onto the table. Remus picked three, begrudgingly, and turned them over. “This is pointless.”

“Excuse me, I’m working magic here.” You said, feigning horror. You leant closer to the table and whispered, “by the way, it’s your turn to face death this week.”

“But none of these cards mean death!”

“I almost died last week, you almost die this week. Thems the rules.” He rolled his eyes but leant back in his chair.

Once the lesson was finished you made your way to the common room. As soon as you stepped through the portal, James parted ways to sit with Lily and Remus flopped into the armchair, exhausted.

“Full moon is tonight Pads.” You whispered, seeing he was about to ask why Remus was tired.

“I knew that.” He said defensively.

“Kitchens?” You laughed, standing up and placing your hand on Remus’ shoulder soothingly.

1 hour later, you and Pads were walking through the portrait hole once again with 2 bags of food into a deserted common room.

“What’d ya get?” James asked, bounding over to you.

Sirius began answering as you walked over to a sleeping Remus. You always felt awful waking him up, taking him away from a peaceful slumber and bringing him back to earth, to being a werewolf.

You placed your hand on his soft sweater and shook his shoulder slightly, “moony.” you whispered gently.

He stirred slightly and opened his eyes to see your small smile, he attempted to smile back and sat up, “is it..”

“Yeah.” you answered quietly. He nodded weakly and got out of the chair.

You looped your arm through his and smiled up at him, trying to reassure him that he’d be fine, as all of you walked through the school to the field.

Peter accidentally becomes the middle man in the marauders relationships and affairs.

When Sirius is being bratty, the other marauders send Peter to tell him to shut up because there’s no way Sirius will punch Peter like he’d punch James or Remus.

When Remus refuses to let anyone else in his room after a full moon, pads and prongs send Peter up with food and care packages because Peter is the only one he’ll let in.

When James is pissed at the world because he just gets like that sometimes, moony and padfoot have Peter go and sit by him because he’ll let James rant and get all of his anger said out loud without interrupting him or challenging his anger.

And when the marauders get into relationships?

It immediately becomes peter’s busiest time of year.

James and Lily passing notes through him because lily has potions with him right before James had herbology with him.

Remus and Sirius doing the same thing and asking Peter to use his animagus to slip the notes into small and funny places.

When Remus gets pissed at Sirius and Sirius spends his evening listening to the voice message conveyed by Peter and running after him begging him to get more information from about Remus.

James and Lily sitting on either side of Peter in the common room and yelling in loud voices things along the lines of “and you can tell James that his jokes are as dumb as his hair! And that not everything he says is funny enough to deserve a laugh!” And “make sure you let Lily know that just because a guy doesn’t do his homework consistently or correctly doesn’t mean he isn’t capable of planning a romantic date and to assume such a thing is very ignorant of her!”

And then the makeups when Sirius loads Peter up with enough chocolate to start a business and outrank honeydukes and has him deliver it all to Remus’s bed where he is sitting with his book. And when Peter returns to his sender with Sirius’ favorite jumper of Remus’ and a private note that Peter knows has something to do with that jumper and other stuff Peter really doesn’t want to know about. He can tell from the blush blossoming on Sirius’ face.

And those really fun nights when James buys lily the new book she’s been wanting and writes a little love letter in it and send it to her through Peter. In return, Lily places a kiss on peters cheek and tells him to pass it on to James. And then the rest of gryffindor house cracking up as they watch Peter chase James around yelling “but LILY SAID!”

And after every errand they put him on, he always finds a little something from them. A cool new cd from Sirius or chocolate from Remus or a good book from Lily or this really good puddings that James nicks from the kitchen for him. And sometimes peter gets exhausted and he wants to stop. But his friends rely on him, even if they don’t always realize how much. He knows he could never let them down. Because it’s worth it when he sees his friends happy and together. He wonders how he could have possibly gotten so lucky.

The lily was the Minoan sacred flower, a special attribute of the Great Minoan Goddess Britomartis (Dictynna), goddess of mountains and hunting. She passed through the Mycenaeans’ culture into classical Greek mythology. For the Greeks, Britomartis was a mountain nymph (an oread) whom they recognized also in Artemis and in Aphaea, the “invisible” patroness of Aegina.

The lily was also dedicated to Hera, the goddess of women. Legend has it that when Zeus fathered Hercules with the mortal woman Alceme, he wished his son to partake more fully of divinity. To this end he had the baby brought to Hera after he drugged her to sleep. He had the baby placed at her breast and Hercules nursed. Hera awoke in horrified surprise and flung the baby from her. Some of her milk gushed across the heavens and formed the milky way. A few drops fell to earth and from those drops sprang the first lilies.

Roman legend has it that when Venus rose from the sea-foam she saw a lily and she became jealous of its beauty. Seeing it as a competitor she caused a huge and monstrous pistil to spring from the lily’s snow-white center. This myth accounts for the the lily being associated with Venus and the Satyrs who are the personification of lustful ardor.

The magical property of this herb is protection, it is used to remove love spells.
