Hi, I'm Emma! 23, Australian, Jewish, obsessed with puzzling out tiny details of HP worldbuilding. I like Marauders era stuff and minor characters. Happy to chat any time!
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.
Everyone in the universe knows Sirius Black fancies Remus Lupin. The challenge is getting Remus Lupin to believe it.

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.

“I’ll be fine,” Remus said, kissing Sirius so he would stand still. “Have you ever known me to die?”

He would rather watch the castle fall than fall himself; and you knew that if he wished it, that was what would happen. The founders were a whole, however much he contested it, and three quarters weren't good enough.

Every year, a Slytherin student gets lost in the maze of corridors in the dungeons, trying to find the common room. Perhaps for Slytherins, a sense of direction is even more important than ambition and greed.

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.

Lily's words had haunted her since she had found out what they were. Usually, last words didn't give many clues as to the circumstances they were said in, but how much ambiguity could there be in "I'll hold him off"?
She would be the cause of someone's death and she couldn't bear it.
In which Albus has an identity crisis about a possible interest that could threaten his entire perception of self and also discovers he's gay.
In which Scorpius plans a new life in the Pacific, Albus is so nervous he forgets his own name, and there is a life-size cardboard cutout of Viktor Krum.

Albus is certain that he is his parents' least favourite child. James is a star quidditch player and Lily is some kind of Potions whiz with more friends than she knows what to do with.
So obviously his only option is to piss them off, if he can't please them. And what would piss them off most? Coming home and pretending Scorpius Malfoy is his boyfriend.
It's only for two weeks, what could happen?

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?

Let love and faithfulness never leave you;
bind them around your neck,
write them on the tablet of your heart.
I stared at where the wedding photo used to be, trying not to think of this as the last time I would sleep in this bed. The last time I would see this room. The last time I would sleep next to my wife. No, it wouldn't be the last time, because I would come back. That was the whole point of leaving, wasn't it?

You wouldn't find it in the Talmud, per se, let alone the Torah, but Wizarding Jewry doesn't obliviate people, and Hermione has broken the law.
Winning the battle does not mean you have won the war - but at twelve, is there really a difference? Severus Snape bested Sirius Black once, in their Second Year. Lily Evans is of the opinion that if he had just listened to her, it wouldn't have happened. And James Potter still stands by the fact that cleaning toilets isn't the worst detention he's had.
