Being (young) Remus Lupin’s signif would include...

Requested by 2 anons :))

  • Short sweet kisses (or whatever expression of love you’re comfortable with)
  • Sharing his secret stash of chocolate with you - but only after having you solemnly swear that you wouldn’t tell Sirius
  • Sitting on his bed talking about anything, the day, thoughts in general, and he’d tell you about the very thought-through pranks he was playing on the other Marauders (Remus would most definitely be the one to think long-term)
  • Waking up to him tracing patterns on your back and admiring your tired features
  • Going to Hogsmeade, hands swinging between you, going from store to store and laughing and having a good time in each other’s company
  • Remus is quite artistic, he would definetely be into drawing, and it would be mostly you his sketchbook would be filled with
  • He’d sit and sketch you at random; on the side of the parchment he’s writing an essay on, or have you model. Trying to capture your laugh and how absolutely stunning he finds you.
  • Planning mischief with him; cuddled up on the couches in the Gryffindor common room (either he snuck you in, or if you’re gryffindor too) after everyone else’s gone to bed
  • Being worried over all his visits to the Hospital Wing, because why wasn’t he telling you what was wrong with him?
  • And you know he’s lying when he says he’s fine, and it’s nothing to worry about, because his voice is hoarse and his body full of scratches and bruises as he smiles weakly
  • Freaking out a bit: what if he’s dying, suffering from a fatal disease and you only had a few weeks left together!
  • Then you heard James call him “Moony”, like he always does, and the penny finally dropped
  • Remus being insecure about his scars, but you casually kissing them lightly whenever to prove that they didn’t bother you; pecking the small one over his lips after you kiss, when you sit down next to him at breakfast, etc.
  • Merlin he loved you for it
  • Holding hands constantly; swinging them between you when you’re on your way to class, under the table at dinner or in class
  • Neither one really knowing who reached out after the other’s hand first, you just end up there somehow (and he definitely didn’t complain)
  • Him bringing you up in his conversations with others all the time without even noticing
  • ‘We get it Moons! Y/N agrees with you; they looked beautiful this morning; they had a really interesting opinion about this or that- Stop being so in love, it makes me sick,’ James would complain
  • Sirius giving you the talk
  • Remus would absolutely love when you wore his clothes (even if he rarely got them back). His scarf, sweaters, hats, anything and everything and you look so bloody cute he can’t keep the blush from rising over his cheeks
  • Sitting down next to you at breakfast, even if you’re from different houses, pressing his lips to your cheek and cheerfully say good morning
  • And the rest of the gang quickly adapted and sat down around you and Remus; none of them minding since they kinda already see you as a part of the group
  • Studying in the library, legs touching and exchanging sweet smiles when one of you catches the other’s eyes (neither of you being able to stop looking at the other)
  • Walking in on the Marauders planning some prank and being weirdly proud when you hear what a terrifying genius Remus is 
  • Sitting next to Remus at The Three Broomsticks with the rest of the Marauders and your friend group, just joking around and hanging out with all of them
  • Playing with his hair to calm him down
  • Whenever he’s tired he’d just lean against you a bit, his head against your shoulder 
  • didn’t really matter if you’re alone or with others; he’d come up to you and let you know how tired he was by quickly leaning against you for a sec
  • Sneaking into the kitchen to chat with the house elves, drink tea or bake
  • Just whenever you’re stressed or want to be together away from all the other students; leaving all troubles by the door.
  • Remus is a master at flower crown, and generally anything with flowers. He’d make flower crowns for the both of you and teach you when you ask him to
  • Giving him flower bouquets too when you’re going on dates or whenever; he’d blush so adorably and smile so wide 
  • Discovering small notes from Remus tucked into the pockets in your robes, between pages in your books, etc. where he with neat handwriting would write down jokes, compliments, or just a little drawing. 
  • He’d often make sure you’d find the jokes in class so he could see your reaction and meet your eyes and see you shake your head in laughter at how stupid it was
  • Hugging you tight when you cuddle through the night, to feel like you’re there and find comfort when he’s having his low points
  • And he’d love to be the little spoon too, to feel safe and loved; especially after a full moon.
  • Staying in bed in the mornings long after you’ve woken up, just talking, reading, or cuddling and tracing patterns on the other’s skin with light fingers
  • Spending most of your summer chilling in a hammock. Sleeping and cuddling close under a blanker (since you’re both freezing your butts off when you end up in the shadow when the sun moves, but neither wants or has the energy to move in).
  • Spending the winters with a hot cocoa warming your hands as you sit by the window, close with your legs tangled together, and watching the snow fall outside
  • Never really being able to understand how someone can love you so fully and totally as he does
  • It’s quite ridiculous actually; you never thought you could be so lucky
  • and neither did he
