You told me to keep you posted on what's happening at Hogwarts, so here goes - I don't know if you've heard, but the Triwizard Tournament's happening this year and on Saturday night I got picked as a fourth champion. I don't know who put my name in the Goblet of Fire, because I didn't. The other Hogwarts champion is Cedric Diggory, from Hufflepuff.
Hope you're OK, and Buckbeak -- Harry

For Noelle Zingarella's "Make Me Like Sirius Black" Challenge
During Saturday's Quidditch match against Ravenclaw, three things happen in rapid succession: Sirius almost gets killed by a Bludger, Marlene McKinnon pulls off a spectacular Hairpin Turn and saves his life, and Sirius realizes that he's actually in love with her.
@clairevergreen: If Kayla can write a Straight Sirius, I will finish Mutually Beneficial, you can quote me
@poppunkpadfoot: Oh god. Well, this is happening.)
The plan was as follows.
Step 1: Convince everyone that he and Remus actually have been dating. Possibly for months.
Step 2: Stage a breakup so dramatic that no one would dare bring their "relationship" up to either of them again.
Step 3: ???
Step 4: Profit.

"I don't smoke," says Remus, which is a lie and Sirius knows it, because they've been here so many times over the last few months, and Remus always takes the cigarette when Sirius offers.
(Because he'll take whatever Sirius will give him, even if it's only half a cigarette, or just one night before they go back to pretending nothing's happening.)

He wants to be loved. He also, in a vague sort of way, wouldn't mind loving someone in return. It's all a bit ironic - that he could be so cut off from something he wants to feel, while he feels everything else so hard it hurts.

“Moody and the Longbottoms are tied up but last I heard they were going to get here as soon as they could.” Sirius pulled a face as he spoke.
“Tied up?” Lily repeated, high-pitched and too loud. “They know we’re literally in a pitched battle in a public park, yes?”
The Marauders' first proper battle against Death Eaters goes horribly wrong.

It was 3:27 AM when James Potter was abruptly awoken by the sound of his cell phone vibrating off of his bedside table.

The first time Minerva McGonagall had an inkling that things were not quite alright with Sirius Black was the first day that she met him - the day of his Sorting.

Sanguini, in his time, has seen no shortage of war. All of human history is the history of struggle. Sanguini thought that he had long ago accepted its inescapability. Running from it, he had decided, was pointless.
Sanguini, in his time, has also often been proven wrong.

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.

"How would you feel about a free trip to France this summer?”
“That depends. What’s the catch?”
“It’s a trip with my family,” Marlene says.
She can’t quite bring herself to look Sirius in the eye as she continues, “I’d be introducing you as my boyfriend.”

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.
