Non-magic AU. Remus spends his all his lunch breaks the same way: he sits at the university cafe, orders the cheapest thing on the menu, and stares at Sirius. Getting a good long, look at Sirius (and fantasizing about said look) is all Remus expects from Sirius. But Sirius has never been one for fulfilling expectations.
“There’s a Roman bloke, Catullus, who wrote about snogging a lesbian, or something like that, and anyway, he said da mi basia mille, give me a thousand kisses, and I spelled it. Ensorceled it. Made it into a thingy.” He pushed the envelope up towards Remus’s mouth. “Say the Latin part and kiss it.” (it’s angsty, but really sweet)
Remus’ lycanthropy has caused his body to seriously deteriorate over the years due to the constant stress of the transformations, and by his fifty-sixth birthday, it’s certain that he won’t live to finish out the year. However, a cure has recently been discovered - but what if the cure is just as bad as the disease? (this one’s angsty too)
Imagine a universe in which Remus never went to Hogwarts. The Marauders never became Animagi, and so Peter had nowhere to run when Sirius cornered him after the Potters’ deaths. Peter was the one who ended up in Azkaban, whilst Sirius was granted custody of Harry.
After dying some wizards are given the option to be reincarnated. They get to live out their lives without their memories until their 12th birthday, at which time all of the memories of their past life and who they are return. The problem is that when you are offered the choice you say “yes” or you say “no” and you don’t get find out what any of your friends have answered…

Remus Lupin has just died on the battlefield, survived by a son that isn’t even biologically his. When he reaches the afterlife, it becomes apparent that even though his time on earth his done his story is certainly not over. Compliant with all Deathly Hallows canon.
