requested by @mrncwton

Pairing: Remus/Sirius

Word count: 2241

Warnings: Angst, a bit of kissing (idk if kissing needs a warning, but better safe than sorry), slight canon divergence* 

* The incident with Sirius trying to get Snape to enter the Whomping Willow is said to have found place early into their Hogwarts years. In this fic, it happens during their sixth year, sometime right before ¾ marauders become animagi, which I also moved forth a year. Sorry about this to those who prefer things to stick to canon 100%.

The flying car incident as seen by Lily and James

James: What the hell? Why can’t they pass?

Lily: This year is going to be awesome. First the house elf and now they are going to miss the train.

James: Maybe they’ll get through it’s not el– Nope it’s gone.

Lily: Have you ever gotten to the school without the train?

James: I haven’t but Moony has. Don’t worry there are other ways. I’m sure Molly and Arthur will figure something out. I’m pretty sure they can use the Floo Network if Dumbledore permits it.

Lily: Where are they going? Why aren’t they waiting for Molly and Arthur?

James: Calm down, they’ll probably wait by the car. Hedwig attracts too much unwanted attention.

*Harry and Ron reach the car*

Lily: James, why is Ronald on the driver seat? Why is he staRTING THE CAR? HARRY JAMES POTTER IF YOU GET IN THAT CAR–

*Harry and Ron fly the car*

James: This boy is even more reckless than Padfoot, incredible. All those Muggles are seeing a flying car Harry, are you kidding me?

Lily: Did he– What the– What is this mess? Will they fly that thing to Hogwarts?

James:  Apparently. Molly’s going to finish Ron. 

Lily: She better or else I will.

*Harry and Ron fly to Hogwarts safely except for the last bit because the car starts to have problems*

Lily: That’s what you get for flying a fucking car all the way from King’s Cross to Hogwarts. They are going to crash into the lake and get eaten by the giant squid.

James: *shocked* Whoa Evans, giant squid has never eaten a student before, I’m guessing it has digestion issues. Besides I’m sure Ron will land it on the ground it’s not that far aw– LOOK OUT FOR THE WHOMPING WILLOW!

*CRASH*

James: Well, I thought we were a menace to Hogwarts but we never crashed into Whomping Willow with an illegally enchanted Ford Anglia.

Lily: Of course you haven’t because at least you guys thought before you acted. This child is giving me anxiety and I’m not even alive.

James: I haven’t seen the Whomping Willow that angry since Peter pushed the wrong knot.

Lily: They are lucky they don’t have at least five different bones broken.

*Harry and Ron make their way to Great Hall talking about Snape and they run into him*

James: Why does it have to be Snivellus?

Lily: Ssh. Harry deserves this.

James: No one deserves *gesturing Snape as a whole* that.

Lily: Shut it 

James: Snappy Lily is my least favourite Lily.

*Snape gets McGonagall and Dumbledore comes, too*

James: *under his breath* Oh this is going to be good, the whole gang is here.

Lily: *looks at James Like she’s going to kill him* They are going to get expelled.

James: No, they are not. If Sirius and I finished that bloody school, the boy who lived certainly can.

*Harry and Ron talk to McGonagall and Dumbledore* 

Lily: Thank heavens, they won’t expel them.

James: *laughing* Look at Snape’s face, he looks like someone told him to go wash his hair.

Lily: When will you stop making fun of important situations?

James: When they are life or death matters.

Lily: *angry* They could have died.

James: But they didn’t. I am sorry I did not panic as much as you want me to but a part of you knows that he won’t, can’t be expelled from Hogwarts, too. They are alright, Lils. That’s what matters, yeah?

Lily: Yeah I guess so. It doesn’t change the fact that Harry and Ron are somehow more dangerous than you and Sirius.

James: *a little offended* I highly doubt that.

Lily: Well, we’ll see that, won’t we?

James: *talking to himself* You don’t know half the things we pulled off.

Lily: What?

James: Nothing Lils.

Lycanthropy | Remus Lupin

Request: Could you do a younger Remus Lupin x reader where the reader is a werewolf also but she doesn’t tell him because she doesn’t want to scare him off, because SHE doesn’t know that HE is a werewolf either?

Once a month I turn into a monster. Once a month I have to hide from everyone I care to protect them. Once a month the beast awakes.

Two nights before the full moon, I was sitting by the fireplace with my boyfriend Remus. It was a cold evening in the early winter months, so we decided to stay in the common room just relaxing because I was getting a “cold”. Of course what I was starting to feel was nothing compared to a cold. The beast was starting to awake so I had to disappear, or as Remus knows “going to visit my forgetful aunt that lives near Hogsmeade to help her and see if she’s okay.” This whole aunt thing is a complete lie, I have no aunt to help but that was a lie Remus have to believe in order for me to protect him.

I hate keeping secret and lying to someone I care about and has shown me nothing but love and acceptance of who I am. But I was terrified that I could scare him or even worse, hurt him.

“Sweetheart?” Remus sweet voice brought me back to reality. I looked at him treasuring his beautiful face. He had a tired expression and his eyes looked sunken in almost sickly, but still beautiful.

“Sorry, what were you saying?” I said a little embarrassed by not paying him attention. He just smiled at me and repeated himself. “I said if you would like a cup of hot chocolate or some tea. For you to feel better and keep yourself warm.” 

I smiled and gave him a little nod, “I’ll go”  I say as I stand up putting on my shoes. Remus stood up confused “No darling, you’re sick. Let me go. I don’t want you to get cold and getting more sick.” He said worriedly.

“Rems, you are actually looking more sick than what I do. It looks like you haven’t slept in days. Please, I go. Besides, you’ve been taking care of me all day. Now it’s my turn to take care of you.”  He protested at first but finally let me got.

On my way to the kitchen, I made a stop to the hospital wing, to talk to madame Pomfrey about the upcoming day. 

Back from the kitchen, I got into the common room with two cups of hot chocolate in my hand. I gave one to Remus and sat down next to him, handing him his and getting once again comfortable by his side.

The day was finally here, I left in the early morning hours into the forbidden forest.

The transformation was hurtful as always, I started to wander around the forest making sure to say hidden from everything.

On my final night, when the sun started to appear behind the castle I could feel I was starting to become myself again. As I started to emerge from the woods, I walked to the castle feeling weak but knowing I was going to be seeing the man I love soon I a couple of hours.  I spotted four figures in the distance near the Whomping Willow.  I keep walking getting near to them when I spot him. Remus was between those figures leading me to the conclusion that the other three around him would be Sirius, James, and Peter. 

Remus and his friends, as well as me, stood there frozen, looking at each other. It suddenly hit me what was going on. Remus was like me and he got that idea as well because without a word he walked at me and hugged me. The other decided to give us our space going there walking to the castle. 

With tears rolling down my cheeks, Remus held my face between his wand and made me look into his eyes. He wipes my tears with his thumb and says “You are very strong, but you don’t have to do this alone. Why didn’t you told me?” He said sadly.

Words were getting stuck in my thought but I answered him still crying. 

“I was trying to protect you, and I was afraid that  you could fear me because of what I am.“ 

He stares into my eyes and understood why I didn’t tell him before because he did the same for the exact same reason.

He hugged me again kissing me on the top of the head, after a few moment like that, as the sky became clear, we both walked into the Gryffindor’s tower up into his room to sleep. all the way through the corridors, and up into his room, neither of us said a word. We both were able to realize that the love we felt for each other honest and true. with those thoughts in mind, we laid down on his bed and fell asleep together getting actual rest in a very long time.

I’ve got a HP Theory...

So I just finished reading Harry Potter and Chamber of Secrets for the second time and it got me thinking….why do we all presume that Salazar Slytherin was the only one to have his own secret hiding place/extra addition to the school? I bet Rowena wanted a nice place for people to go to either go and study or get away from all the stress so she created the Room of Requirement.

Helga loved being out in nature but hated being around Godric and Salazar when they were fighting so she found the one place where she could bury herself. She built the Shrieking Shack underneath the Whomping Willow because she was the only one that was ever nice enough to fertilize the tree properly and cut off it’s deadest branches that were weighing it down. She was hoping if other kids learned to look past the tree’s brutal nature they could come to love the hiding place too.

Godric just wanted an easier way to move about the castle without Apparating…so he created all the fun tunnels that were leading in and out of the castle. No one could obey the rules forever right? In his mind he thought people would expand upon them which they did. Turned out to be a good thing for everyone.

I don’t know, i think it’s something cool to think about. Just thinking about them all hiding away from each other trying not to get caught adding in new additions to the building, it’s a fun thought.
