7:03 pm - Bridges (Too Many to Cross Remix)

Title: Bridges (Too Many To Cross Remix)
Author: laurificus
Pairing: Remus/Sirius
Summary: There are some things that can't be fixed by magic, but sometimes they're the things worth fixing.

This is a remix of a drabble by copracat:

Some days he thought drinking the potion was punishment for being - the way he was. Bitterness twisted his mouth and his eyes squeezed shut. Groping for
the table, he put down the smoking mug and he didn't open his
eyes until the nausea faded.

"Vile concoction. I almost suspect Severus of making it more awful than it needs to be just to be spiteful."

"Suspect?" Sirius tugged his arm, pulling him down to the bed.

Remus smiled. "He wouldn't. It's exactly as bad as it is because - "

" - of magical resonance," Sirius finished. "Resonate with me." He laughed and kissed Remus hard.

1:40 am - Internal/External (The Luck of the Draw Remix)

Title: Internal/External (The Luck of the Draw Remix)
Author: Molly (irreelle at mac dot com)
Summary: "He wants, for the thousandth time, to tell them all that sometimes he feels like he and Snape got opposite ends of the same unfortunate stick."
Rating: PG
Pairing: The tiniest hint of Remus/Sirius, if you squint hard -- and are kinda drunk.
Disclaimer: Not mine, just having fun.
Assigned Author: lionessvalenti (to whom I apologize a whole lot for being a tardy schmuck).

Original drabble:

"Greasy slime." James began to stand.

Remus looked across the room at Snape, who was hunched over a book.

"Why don't you leave him alone?"

"Aww, do you fancy him, Moony?" Sirius asked in a teasing voice. He
wrapped an arm around Remus' neck and kissed his cheek.

"Of course not-"

"He earns it," James said. "Always making fun of you two, and Wormtail
here, when he turned that raccoon into a slug."

"Not always," Remus said.

"Remus," Sirius said, pulling away.

"Look, I don't fancy him, all right?" Remus said sharply to Sirius. He
looked at James. "But there's no reason to bother him when he's reading a

"If he bothers us-" James said.

"I'll never say another word."

"Anything for Moony," Sirius said.

Remus looked at Snape again and sighed.

12:36 am - Back in Black (The Tattoos Are Sexy Remix)

Title: Back in Black (The Tattoos are Sexy Remix)
Author: lorax (adena(at)direcway(dot)com)
Summary: Remus thinks too much and remembers everything - even during reunion sex.
Rating: R
Pairing: Remus/Sirius
Warnings: Rampant mixing of movie and book canon. You have been forewarned. Also the Drabble's clever pun was somehow lost in the translation. As was its reference to Homeric Retardation because even after looking it up, I hadn't a clue what it meant. I am dumb.
Spoilers: Through PoA I suppose. Though considering this is a Remus Remix story, that sorta goes without saying.
Author you were assigned: not_vacillating

Original Drabble: Back in Black
by: Am-Chau Yarkona

Remus consciously slowed his movements, trying to linger on every sensation, thinking irrelevantly of Homeric retardation.

There were new tattoos on Sirius' neck, prison tattoos; the ones on his chest seemed faded, or perhaps that was just the grey tint in his skin. There were scars across them-werewolf claws, Remus realized, and bent to kiss them.

"Moony," Sirius gasped, bucking his hips up; apparently he felt that Remus was neglecting his duties. "Stop thinking and fuck me already."

"I," Remus said, thrusting firmly, "can do both at once," but Sirius didn't seem to be listening. Which was fine by Remus, as it gave him a chance to admire the sight: Sirius, hair spread across the pillow, head thrown back in pleasure, mouth wet, open and panting... It was good to be back.

11:34 pm - FIC: Imperfections (The Way We Get By Remix)

Title: Imperfections (The Way We Get By Remix)
Author: SA (sa@fubos.com)
Summary: Introspection by the lake.
Rating: G
Author you were assigned: molly36

What Remus really means is that there are times he wishes the entire world would forget his existence, that he wasn't Remus-the-Prefect or Remus-the-Marauder, Remus-the-fellow-with-the-funny-scar or Remus-the-werewolf. He wishes he could have a little tower with many, many books and a quill and parchment to take some notes on. Collapse )

Original drabble:

They lay out by the lake, side by side. The moon is a small crescent: waning. "What's it like?" Sirius asks him sleepily. "Not the change, just...all of it. Being you. You know."

Remus thinks for a moment, tries to make the truth less bleak. "Mum made me take her friend's daughter out all last summer. Every time I hoped she'd forget, but she never did. Always showed up with something caught in her teeth, as well. Really mucked up my summer."

Sirius laughs a bit. "If it were me," he says quietly, and their hands brush together, "I don't think I'd forget, either."

"Ah," Remus says, and smiles at the moon, "but you keep your teeth so clean."

current mood: sleepy

11:16 pm - Toujours Pur

Title: Toujours Pur
Author: Raven
Summary: "He lingered almost too long, and decided abruptly that a schoolboy crush was one thing but a werewolf’s obsession was entirely another, and she was making him more dangerous."
Rating: PG
Pairing: Sirius/Remus, Remus/Bellatrix
Disclaimer: Not mine, JKR's.
Author you were assigned: ranalore
Notes: Sorry about the delay - due to an unexpected thunderstorm, I lost internet access yesterday. not_vacillating's support during the writing of this is much appreciated.

Original drabble:

Sirius has left you alone this fortnight past." Bellatrix's nails dug into his upper arm. Remus had done worse to himself, but he stilled within her grasp. "Has he thrown you over for Potter, a pureblood in his bed?"

"Ask him if you like."

Her smile was entirely too like Sirius'.

"I'm asking you," she said, and kissed him.

She kissed like Sirius, and instinct warred with control, but only briefly. He jerked away. It hurt more than he expected. She laughed.

"An eloquent Gryffindor answer." She laughed again when he turned his back.

The sound followed him to class.

3:00 pm - Still I Lie Sleepless // PG-13

Title: Still I Lie Sleepless
Author: hikaru :: hikaru@hikaruchan.com
Summary: Excerpts from the journal of Remus Lupin. Grief -- and relief -- come in many colours.
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: Remus/Sirius; Remus/Bill
Disclaimer: All these characters and places most definitely belong to JKR. I'm not making money from this, and do not intend to.
Warnings: Character death, angst, first-person writing. ;)
Spoilers: Book 5, OotP
Author you were assigned: Casira
Notes: I've taken some liberties with OotP, assigning dates to certain events, as JKR gave us absolutely nothing concrete to work on as far as dates are concerned. I started writing this on scraps of papers at work, which is perhaps why it came out as a journal. The title is from William Wordsworth's "To Sleep," and therefore is indicative of his creativity rather than mine. Thanks to Amber and Circe, who read this over and told me that it didn't suck. However, I never fail to tinker with things, therefore all the little errors are my fault.

Title: Family Matters (The ‘Behind Blue Eyes’ Remix)

Pairings: Remus/Sirius, Narcissa/Lucius.
Disclaimer: Not JKR, don't own the characters. The Who own the song "Behind Blue Eyes", from which the Funky Remix Subtitle is derived.
Author you were assigned: Runespoor


Original Drabble - by Runespoor

I received a note. Meeting in a Muggle pub today. From Narcissa Malfoy. God knows how she found me. I've left the wizarding world a year ago. Yet another surreal experience involving a Black. Someone remind me why I came?

"Bellatrix is in Azkaban. She claimed her alliance to the Dark Lord."

Ah. And this concerns me because?

"You could have my support, rather than wasting away amongst Muggles. Distasteful as it is, you're family. I'd do the same for Andromeda's husband."

"Thank you Narcissa. I feel better in the Muggle world." I'm not Sirius'

"It'd be easier if we didn't love them," she quietly says.

11:33 pm - To Get By

Title: To Get By
Author: Bow (bowdlerized@gmail.com)
Summary: The days go on and Remus gets by.
Rating: PG
Pairing: Remus/Sirius, vaguely
Spoilers: OotP
Notes: Oh, how could I have forgotten to thank supergrover24 for her insightful last-minute beta? Thank you!
Author you were assigned: rosawestphalen

Memories assault him at any moment of weakness. He fortifies himself with the work of the order. He barricades himself with endless tasks. Yet in moments just before sleep, some slight scent or gentle sound will morph into devastating attacks he cannot parry. Lily's laugh, James's scent, Peter's snicker. When he's weakest, when he thinks one more memory will finish the job, a whisper of breeze will bring him Sirius. Sirius touching, stroking, holding. He pulls his loss closer, knowing he's powerless against such guerilla tactics, unable to deny Sirius, even in death. Even if it leads to his own.

Feedback is appreciated!

12:27 am - Address Unknown (The Morbid Cobra Remix)

Title: Address Unknown (The Morbid Cobra Remix)
Author: Voleuse (ToTheCavern@yahoo.com)
Summary: The lion and the tigers turn to clay.
Rating: R
Pairing: Remus/Sirius, (Lily/James)
Warnings: Angst!
Spoilers: Pre-HP
Author you were assigned: loneraven

The Original Drabble:

Sirius kisses Remus with raw passion, pushing him back against the wall and digging in so hard his nails have blood beneath, and Remus gasps but says nothing. Sprawled out naked in Sirius's bed, he can have no secrets, and Sirius keeps his enemies very, very close. In the morning, there are teethmarks cut into white skin, the thick scent of suspicion in the air, and Remus's wide eyes, too bright and quick to break contact.

When Remus pauses at the door, staggers with weakness and Sirius does not catch him, Lily sees the danger that James does not, and she is afraid.

Pairing: Remus/Ron, Remus/Sirius, Harry/Hermione (if you squint)
Warnings: none
Spoilers: Books 3 & 5 particularly
Betas: ou_topos and lysrouge
Author you were assigned: supergrover24

Drabble: Scenting the Calm

Rows upon rows of books - arithmancy, runes, potions, magical creatures - a wizarding bookstore had a certain scent that Remus imagined only he could smell. The dust, the leather bindings, the vellum parchment; it calmed Remus like nothing else had since his early twenties. Then it was the scent of Sirius' musky aroma that enveloped him like a cloak.

He always sought out a bookstore in the days before his transformation. They were the same all over Europe, and this tiny little store in some tiny little town was exactly what he needed. Two years after Voldemort's defeat and Remus was still hiding from the world. Until he turned down the aisle devoted to sports, and saw the one man he wasn't sure he could face again and realized that he was in hiding no more.

"Lo, Remus."

Remus took a deep breath, inhaling the calming scent one last time.

"Ron. Hello."

Rows upon rows of booksCollapse )

1:49 am - "...as we join this man and this woman..." (the Celebration remix)

It's still August 8th somewhere in the world, isn't it?

Title: " . . . as we join this man and this woman . . ."
Author: Beth H (bethbethbeth) / beth-h @ mrks.org
Summary: A Coming Together in Eleven Parts with Eleven Second-hand Titles.
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: Remus/Hermione
Warnings: Some mentions of secondary character deaths (sorry, but there's a war going on).
Spoilers: All five books and beyond.
A/N: Many thanks to gaeta for the speedy, way-past-her-bedtime beta. Also? I've shamelessly stolen borrowed Ars Alchemica - my favorite imaginary scholarly journal - from the SS/HG side of the fandom.

Original Drabble by leogryffin


"I'm ready," Remus said with a wan smile as he adjusted the unfamiliar
tie. "This Muggle suit is ridiculous, Hermione."

She grinned as she planted a kiss on his cheek. "You look wonderful, of
course." She turned away. He was struck, not for the first time, by her
tired eyes. What was left of innocence - for everyone, it seemed, not just
the schoolchildren - had vanished in a haze of pain and loss. They had
managed to look forward to celebrating the wedding of their friends, but
the empty seat that would have been taken by Harry...

He shook his head and cleared his throat. "You're beautiful, Hermione," he
whispered before he could take it back.

1:35 am - The Other Woman (The I Want To Believe remix)

Title: The Other Woman (The I Want To Believe remix)
Author: sundaydriver
Summary: Everyone loved Lily, except for Remus.
Rating: PG (PG-13ish for one scene)
Pairing: Remus/Lily, with hints of Remus/James and Remus/Sirius
Warnings: Only a bit of slashy undertones.
Author you were assigned: Amiss (axis2cluster_b)
Author's notes: I'm sorry this is a couple of hours late. There were wireless issues and a wonky computer that interfered with the whole process. I also wanted to thank my beta, skylark97 for being such a fantastic help. You always provide just the right type of advice to help round out a story. Thank you sweets:)

Lily’s smile is a little scared, and the way that she’s moving toward
him freezes Remus’s breath in his chest. Everything seems to be frozen in
that crystal moment of time, in her red hair and her green eyes so
close to him.

“Sirius,” he gets out, and then, “James.”

Her eyes hold the same bleakness that he feels in his heart, and that’s
something like comfort to him, even though she doesn’t slow, doesn’t
stop until she’s pressed herself against him and he’s tugged her even

The hell of it is, he wants to stop.
The hell of it is, she does, too.

11:55 pm - Liars (The Desperate Secrets Remix)

Title: Liars (The Desperate Secrets Remix)
Author: Inyron (inyron@yahoo.com)
Summary: James will never tell.
Rating: PG
Pairing: Remus/James
Warnings: Het and Slash. But mostly slash.
Author you were assigned: kestrelsan

Original Drabble:

Most of the time, Remus was sure Sirius knew. Sidelong glances in Transfigurations, before Borgius Brackenbury changed a toad into a Cornish Pixie, and the classroom evacuated amid shrieks and shattered inkwells; hands brushing against each other as they walked to class the next day, because the corridor was crowded and no one could tell whose hand touched whose.

Over half-empty plates and the twisting spiral of a peeled skin where Peter had stolen the last orange, a look that made Remus think that he didn't mind being terrified, if it felt like this. He held on to it like a secret.

Inevitable, really, that they'd find themselves kissing at the top of Gryffindor tower while the rest of the students were still at supper. By then, Remus thought Sirius must surely know.

"I won't tell," James said, and kissed him again.

10:33 pm - Drunken Drivel and Destiny (The Nutter Butter Drunkard Remix)

Title: Drunken Drivel and Destiny
(Ahhh-nother Nutter Butter Drunkard Remix)
Author: shelley
Rating: PG
Crossover: HP/BtVS. Spoilers for “Damage” and Order of the Phoenix
Summary: People who save the world always have a bond, even when they’re strangers.
Disclaimer: J. K. Rowlings and Scholastic Books own all the inhabitants of the Potterverse; Joss Whedon and Mutant Enemy own all the denizens of the Buffyverse; pockettheroach owns her drabble. I own sod all, so please don’t sue.

Author’s Notes: This was written for pockettheroach in musesfool’s Remus Remix ficathon. pockettheroach wrote a 150-word drabble for me that I then remixed into a story. I doubt she was thinking of a crossover when she wrote it, but the other character just screamed Andrew Wells to me.

A huge shout-out goes to jesmel. As she does with nearly every fic, she looked at my pathetic endingless story and pulled my nuts out of the fire at the very last moment. Thank you!

"And that's my story," the shabby man concluded, grabbing for his pint. "That's why I sit in here and drink. I was a wizard, a good man, even if I am a werewolf, and after my Sirius died I made some bad decisions. It's my fault Hermione died. It's my fault about Percy, even if he started it himself. And most of all, what happened to Harry..." He trailed off, staring into his drink. "The blame falls entirely on me. I was an outcast in my own world before, and now I'm doubly so." He stopped, remembering there was someone else listening to him. "But you think I'm a nutter, no doubt, talking about wizards and werewolves and all."

"No," said the young man, who had listened to the story intently and was now barely able to hold back his tears. "I don't think you're a nutter at all... Professor."
