    Summary

    “Pete,” the first man says slowly, like he’s trying to calm a spooked child. “What’s my name?”

    “Kingston,” Pete answers automatically, the feelings of trust and home and a fragment of being shouted at in a bodega he’s never been to all conflicting and coexisting in his skull. He hasn’t tripped this bad since the episode that had gotten him on the antipsychotics in the first place, and even this makes that look like a walk in the park. He can’t afford to get sent back to the hospital, not without insurance, and he really needs to get it together before someone calls an ambulance, or worse, the cops. “You’re Kingston Brown,” he says firmly, hopes to everything there is that he’s right.

    Or: Pete doesn’t remember being awakened to the Unsleeping City and has a rough time

    //Chapter two is Kingston’s pov

    Summary

    Remus looks at Harry's wide eyes again.
    Maybe, he thinks, and he knows it’s absurd and impossible, but he still thinks that maybe they sent him to Harry, and they sent Harry to him after all those years he spent alone. Perhaps to commemorate what they have lost together and cry and mourn and suffer.
    Perhaps, they thought it is high time that Remus smiles again, sincerely, like the days in Hogwarts. Like he is a human again, not just a hollow bag of bones. Perhaps they think he should stop just existing, and live again. Perhaps.
    *
    Voldemort is defeated, the war is over, but Remus can't pull himself together until suddenly there is a little boy in his arms, crying and waiting for him to wipe his tears away.
