If being away from Dean was making his dreams this bad and his feelings so strong, maybe living with Dean would make them both go away. They could go back to before, when things were easy and Seamus wasn’t one spark away from an explosion.

Sirius Black was a womanizer.

 

Well, that was one way to put it, anyway. There were others, but they weren't so polite. The point was, Sirius had been with a lot of girls. Peter wasn't really keeping track - really, he wasn't, it wasn't like he was keeping a list or something - but he knew that it was an impressive number. A number that put the rest of the Marauders to shame.

 

Winner of Best Family/Friendship - FROGS 2018.
