The pain would always be there, and her eyes would always be boring into him, trying to find the answers he didn't have.
The torture of the Longbottoms.
Written in 2009 for the Stream of Consciousness challenge.
It was like they'd taken a left-hand turn into a universe without the War, without any of their troubles, just this one Welsh village and a hopelessly large number of courgettes.
“How would you feel about a free trip to France this summer?” Marlene says, but there’s something odd in the way she’s standing, holding herself a little too still to be truly relaxed.
“That depends,” Sirius says, putting his hands in his pockets and leaning against the wall. “What’s the catch?”
On one hand, he does quite like France. On the other, he can’t imagine he’s the first choice Marlene would have for a holiday companion.

Anthony leads Dumbledore's Army in a seder. They aren't exactly free, but it's always a good time to celebrate freedom.
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?

Anthony Goldstein, Ministry Prosecutor, has to prosecute a case involving neo-Death Eaters and the Imperius Curse ten years after the war ends. There's something more to it, though, and he can't get the Auror division to investigate -- so he's going to have to take it into his own hands.
A story about Jewish law, Wizarding law and moral law.
“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.

Rebuilding the castle feels like an impossible task, but they're teachers — what's one more impossible task?
Perhaps in hindsight, this space piracy thing had been going too well.

There was nothing James Potter loved more than quidditch except perhaps winning at quidditch.
Unfortunately, this game was not going in their favour.

Remus Lupin has been trying to hide his... affliction for the last year and a half. He should have realised he was doing a poor job of it, but it's not like he expected his friends to be fine with it.
For HPFT's Great Collab, theme 'back from the brink' and challenge 'internalised oppression'.
Neville Longbottom and Zacharias Smith have to team up to save Anthony Goldstein from himself.
There are absolutely no feelings involved. Really.
“I’m here as the executor of Walburga Black’s will,” Bellwater said without preamble.
“Sorry?” Sirius said, blinking a few times. “I wasn’t aware I was even still in — hang on,” he said, turning to Remus for some reason. “You only get an executor of your will if you’re dead, right?”
Proposing to Remus, like many things Sirius did, was a spur of the moment thing.
It's 1993 and Sirius Black has sneaked into Filch's office to retrieve the Marauder's Map only to discover... someone has already taken it.

Andromeda Black has always felt stifled by the rigidity her family's history binds her to. This is how she breaks free.

Everyone in the universe knows Sirius Black fancies Remus Lupin. The challenge is getting Remus Lupin to believe it.
For HPFT's Great Collab, theme 'new beginnings' and challenge 'space opera'.
Remus Lupin has never had friends before. He doesn't expect that to change at Pigfarts.
For the 2019 Great Collab, 'new beginnings' and 'space opera'.
Death Eaters are blockading the majority-human Albian system. Our heroes, brought together by their shared history at Pigfarts, come up with a plan to do something about it.
The war has taught Neville many things: the efficacy of different healing potions; the sensation of being both yourself and not yourself as you torture a fellow student under imperius, floating in the liminal space between the two; the time it takes between hearing a twelve-year-old scream and finding them cornered next to a tapestry, like the space between a thunderclap and lightning. The war has taught Neville many things, and though he would like to credit the war with his awareness, wherever he is in a room, of Anthony Goldstein, he's more self-aware than that.
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.
Alicia Spinnet is only kissing Katie Bell for sport reasons. Really.
Chanukah is a minor holiday, and Anthony Goldstein has never really paid much attention to it. In Seventh Year, he's too busy surviving to observe the holidays, but the Room of Requirement has other ideas.
