IN THE WRONG HOUSE (chapter 1)Summary:
Sirius Black, Remus thought, was just as arrogant and annoying as James Potter, and he wished the two of them would stop getting into fights. Because Remus kept finding himself stepping in to stop them, and calling that kind of attention to himself was really the last thing he needed during his first year at Hogwarts.
It didn't matter if they were unpredictable Blacks or show-off Potters, or even someone harmless like Peter Pettigrew. None of these boys could be his friends, and it was time Remus started remembering it.
He didn't mind, Remus told himself. He didn't need friends.Characters:

...the one and only JKR for this spectacular sandbox. I don't own it!
...Kaydeefalls for first planting the idea that maybe James and Sirius weren't fast friends from the moment they met like we tend to assume, in "The Years of the Rat
...Sam Starbuck for the idea that the Sorting Hat put Remus in Gryffindor because "he needed courageous people around him," in "The Sorting Hat" (part of his "Moon Meadow Anthology
…Jules, I think, was the first I saw give James' dad the profession I've also found fitting for him, in her epic-length story "The Life and Times.
...plus whoever it was that suggested – though they phrased it far more elegantly – that Remus and Peter ended up in Gryffindor, when many would have pegged them as Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff respectively, because the Marauders were simply so very much meant to be.Story:( In the Wrong House, chapter 1 )
