Remus sighs and runs a hand over his face, pressing in a little like it might relieve some of his tension headache. “For the last time,” he says, though he knows it’s useless. Sirius used to do things over and over again after ‘the last time’ just to spite him. “You are not sleeping on the floor.”

It was all she could do to stand tall against him, to defy him as she had already before. It was all she could do to look him in his eyes and defend Harry. It was all she could do to push away the heartrending fear and pain, the what-ifs and the thoughts of everyone but her son. It was all she could do.

“Will the light keeper be able to help, Miss…?” Lieutenant Black asks. She turns to him, catching his gaze. For all that he sounds calm, there’s a strain there, darkening in his eyes and tightening the corners of his mouth. He looks—exhausted and desperate, and obviously worse-off for his time in the lifeboat. If she knew him better, she might even say he looks scared, his fingers a little too tense on his friend’s wrist.
“Evans,” she says with confidence, used to taking charge in situations like these. “Lily Evans. And seeing as I’m the light keeper, I believe so, yes.”
“You’re—?” He cuts himself off quickly, eyeing her. He seems to realize this isn’t a time for stupid questions. “Never mind. I’m glad to hear it, Miss. My name is Lieutenant Commander Sirius Black. This is Lieutenant James Potter,” he says with a gesture to the injured man, “and that’s Officer Remus Lupin. The one off to get the lifeboat is Seaman Peter Pettigrew.”

Remus, Sirius, and two marriage proposals.
The Shrieking Shack was a large, creaking building, filled with spiders and mice. It was cold, and dark, and some corners were eternally damp, though there was no running water. The roof had holes, and some of the windows were smashed out, others missing the glass panes completely. There were rooms where the floor wasn’t worth the risk, and others where the draft was so bad Sirius refused to go inside unless he was wearing his fur coat.
It was so unlike Hogwarts, a pervasive feeling of pain and suffering, the slight stinging smell of blood. The magic there wasn’t exciting or happy like the halls of the school—it was confining, sad, an afterthought. It wasn’t a place to experiment, a place with no consequences.
Sirius loved it.
“My head hurts,” Sirius said fifteen minutes ago, rubbing at his temple. “Think I’ll take a nap.”
And James had said back, “I’ll wake you for dinner,” and then Sirius nodded and laid down in his bed and slept.

WHY would you tell him that story?? He’s scared to go to the library now and begged me to come with him. Not that I minded, but did you really have to frighten him off Pince so quickly? For Godric’s sake.
A collection of letters sent between James, Lily, Sirius, Remus, Harry, and maybe others too.
Beware Prongs and sprog. Harry’s sicked up everywhere, and James is worried he might’ve missed a spot. He also mentioned a headache—wasn’t that the first sign for Harry too?
