Peter Pettigrew was found dead in an alleyway in 1981 underneath a Dark Mark. A month later, the war ended, and the investigation into his death was lost in the avalanche of work necessary to rebuild after Voldemort.
Fourteen years later, Remus Lupin receives a letter questioning whether Peter really died a hero after all.
“I’ll be fine,” Remus said, kissing Sirius so he would stand still. “Have you ever known me to die?”
Sirius decided to leave the Auror Division in 1983.
Looking back, Harry would remember his third year at Hogwarts as, well, remarkably normal compared to everything that happened all the other years of his schooling. Remus would remember it as the best year of his life. Sirius would remember that time Dumbledore walked in on him and Remus in a compromising position.
Absolutely nothing of consequence happened in the 1993-94 school year. It was perfect.

In hindsight, Lily really shouldn’t have written up a list of all the boys she’d ever fancied and what she liked about each of them.

And so Remus watched everything he’d worked for roll down the hill again.

It was the last true summer of their youth, but the fellowship of the Marauders was blighted by an act of thoughtless anger. Now, Sirius' gone missing and no one has seen him for more than a week. Where did he go, and just as importantly, does Remus really want to find him?

The customer standing in front of him is, quite possibly, the most beautiful man Remus has ever seen. Like, he looks like a model or something. He has long, black hair, flattened by water, and just the slightest amount of scruff on his face, and…
And a baby strapped to his chest.

Sirius Black was ready to go murder Peter Pettigrew until he realised that Harry had survived the attack on Godric's Hollow. He was Harry's godfather, and why should he let Dumbledore overrule the Potters' will?
If a tree falls in a forest, does it make a sound? If two people love each other in private, is the survivor allowed to claim the public status of primary mourner? If no one speaks a truth out loud, is it still true?

Lily Evans’ soulmate is a complete idiot. Although she’s never actually met him to confirm this.
A Soulmate!AU tale of rugby matches, incompetent medical interns, and a broken rib or two.
Honestly, if someone told him this morning that he’s going to be attacked by a vampire on his way back from the library, rejected half a second later because apparently he’s not delicious enough for the guy’s liking, and then have said vampire concerned about his health – well, he’d tell them to check out the local GP when they next have the chance.
Surely this isn’t normal?
