    Summary

    A collection of paper tumbled out of the record sleeve and onto the coffee table: parchment of varying quality, scraps torn from lined notebooks; some folded into pocket-sized squares, others rolled into tight scrolls. Remus’s hands shook as he sifted through them.

    In 1987, Remus finds the letters Sirius never sent to him, and loses what little hope he had of moving on.

    Summary

    James is sitting on the couch, Harry is next to him, giggling, and Lily's standing near the kitchen counter. James has his wand out, he's shooting colorful bubbles and Harry loves them, he's clapping excitedly -

    The silver Patronus materialises in front of James so suddenly, that he can't even react.

    "Peter's a death eater," Sirius's voice says. "He's sold you out. Voldemort's coming for you. Tonight. Run, Prongs."

    Alternatively
    Sirius gets expelled after the Prank in Fifth Year, and everything changes.

    Summary

    “What do you want me to do?” Remus says, tiredly. All he wants is to curl up on his bed. Smoke a pack of cigarettes. Get drunk. He can’t stop looking at Harry.

    “Remus...” Dumbledore is gentle. Remus hates when he has that tone. Hates that he knows it will hurt. “There is no one else left.”

    A bitter laugh escapes him. “So you’ll curse the poor thing with a werewolf for a guardian?”

    Summary

    "This is Crabbe, and Goyle," the blonde boy says, pointing at the two boys next to him. "And I'm Malfoy, Draco Ma - "

    Ron laughs, and Malfoy immediately bristles.

    "Think my name's funny, do you?" Malfoy says, angrily. "No need to ask yours - "

    "You're honestly so cute," Ron interrupts, yet again, shaking his head. "So tiny. And so angry, all the time. It's adorable."

    Alternatively
    Ron Weasley, Time Traveller Extraordinaire, is stuck in the same seven year Hogwarts Loop, repeating the same thing over and over again. Naturally, he's so done with everything.

    Summary

    "You're going to be alright, Harry," Sirius says, quietly, ruffling his hair. "We're all going to be okay. You've still got me, haven't you?"

    "Sirius," Harry whispers, as he sits down, eyes on the floor. "They, they snapped my wand."

    Alternatively,
    Harry gets expelled from Hogwarts, and Sirius gets an army of dogs.

    Summary

    Keith’s throat is dry as he prays that maybe that brave boy will come out once again, that same boy that said, ‘you can come back tomorrow’ and looked at Lance as if he was a bursting star in the dark of the night. Keith wants to ask, do you remember? or even more important, do you forgive me?

    Or, Keith and Lance almost fall in love at the garrison. Keith forgets and the rest is history, the rest is Voltron until Keith is standing in the garrison halls years later and he remembers.

    (a story about missed chances, change, and coming home.)

    Summary

    After being expelled from Hogwarts for his dangerous prank on Severus Snape, Sirius Black vanished without a trace. The official story was that he ran away from home, but his closest friends always believed something far more sinister must have happened for Sirius to disappear without so much as an owl.

    Five years later, as Voldemort’s attacks grow bolder and more deadly, Remus Lupin spots a familiar face while on a mission for the Order of the Phoenix, the face of a man he believed to be dead.

    What happened to Sirius Black? Why did he disappear, and, more importantly, why is he back?

    Summary

    For six thousand years, Aziraphale did his best to exist within the strictures of Heavenly conduct. It wasn’t a perfect practice; his relationship with Crowley, just for example, was never exactly what one might call “officially sanctioned,” or even, “particularly wise,” but the important thing was that Aziraphale tried. He wasn’t a very good angel, but he did his best, more or less. Wasn’t that all anyone could really ask of him?

    It doesn’t really feel fair, is the point, that in reward for saving the world, Aziraphale seems to be having something of an existential crisis.

    Summary

    A Few Reasons Remus Suggested They Pursue Couple's Counseling:

    1. Sirius was DEAD (no matter how many times he says he wasn't, which is a lot), so that's bloody complicated.
    2. They're a "blended family" now and, well, that's also bloody complicated.
    3. Sirius Black is an utter fucking mess.
    4. They can't just have sex all the time. They can't. Well, maybe they....no, no. They really can't.

    Summary

    "I..." Merlin began, trailing off. Arthur waited. "I, um... You see..." He tried again. Arthur felt another stab of resentment rise as his shoulders seemed to slump in resignation. What had Gwaine done to him? He was about to suggest Merlin speak to him alone when Gwaine's expression went completely blank before turning to look at the prince.

    "Ah," He winced and offered a dazzling smile "Hello, your majesty. You caught us at a bad time."

    "Have I?" Arthur asked coolly. Merlin blinked - looking Gwaine over warily.

    "Yes," The knight continued and gestured between himself and Merlin. "We were just about to have some amazing sex. Right in that alcove actually," He said, nodding a bit towards a nook in the wall behind Arthur. "So, if this isn't anything urgent..." He trailed off. Arthur stared.

    He... He had misheard, right? Definitely. For a moment he thought Gwaine had said... No. Absolutely not.

    Or

    Gwaine learns that Merlin has magic. Arthur learns that Gwaine is hopelessly in love with Merlin.

    Summary

    “Mordred, right?” Arthur asked, kneeling in front of him. The boy nodded, eyes wide as he looked at Arthur as if he might bolt at any moment. “What are you doing back in Camelot? My father won’t like seeing you again.”

    “He’s hurt.” Mordred whispered and Arthur glanced over at where Merlin was unconscious. A sudden realization dawned on him.

    “You healed him,” He said slowly “With magic.”

    Mordred nodded. Arthur’s mind raced – thinking of all Merlin had survived in his encounters with bandits and sorcerers. Before he could ask if Mordred had been responsible for all of it, there was a groan as Merlin shifted, eyes flickering open.

    “Arth – you!” He choked, sitting up quickly to grab Arthur’s arm as if he could yank the prince away. Mordred grinned.

    “You’re awake!” He beamed and launched forward to hug him. Arthur watched as Merlin stiffened at the action – eyes widening before desperately trying to push him away.

    “Arthur. Arthur, get him off of me-”

    Or

    After sneaking Mordred out of Camelot, he occasionally returns to make sure Merlin is doing okay. Arthur isn’t sure why this child is so concerned about the wellbeing of his servant… Nor Merlin's vehement attempts to ignore it.
