FANTASTIC BEASTS AND HOW TO WIN THEIR HEARTS: A RETELLING OF BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
by stereolightning and starfishstar


SUMMARY:

A man with nowhere else to turn agrees to live forever in a remote mansion that exists in perpetual autumn, his host a reclusive character known only as the Beast. By turns attentive and taciturn, the monstrous lord of the house keeps his dark secrets close to his chest, yet both host and guest find themselves increasingly captivated by one another. But how can a Beast give his heart while he remains a prisoner of his own curse?

A fusion of Harry Potter with Beauty and the Beast, told in seven chapters.

IN THE WRONG HOUSE

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.

NEVER SAY NEVER NEVER

Summary: Remus makes Sirius watch his first Muggle film. The experience is less horrible than predicted.

Characters/Pairing: Remus/Sirius, James/Lily, Peter

Rating: PG

Words: ~2,700

Notes: Set during the Christmas holidays of seventh year, late 1977.

I wrote this as a just-in-case back-up story for the [livejournal.com profile] rs_games, to have on hand if Team Muggle needed more pinch-hits. Team Muggle ended up being fine, luckily, so now this story just is. The prompt I wrote it for was #28 here – a picture of a cosy room with a fireplace.

This story isn’t my headcanon of Remus/Sirius, even if I had a headcanon of Remus/Sirius, which I don’t think I do. It’s just an idea that seemed like fun. :-)

SIRIUS...BLACK (SIX DRABBLES)

Summary: Sirius Black, and the most important people in his life. Six moments.

Characters: Sirius, Remus, James, Peter, Lily, Harry, the Black family

Rating: T / PG-13 (no pairings, but mentions of violence, grief, death, all that canon stuff)

Words: 6 x 100

Notes: This is a little challenge I set myself – six drabbles (each 100 words precisely), each set five years apart, each starting with "Sirius" and ending with "Black" – for “The Day of the Black Dog,” a Sirius-centric event happening today over at the [livejournal.com profile] sirius_black community. Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] huldrejenta for pointing me to that event!

Each heading shows Sirius' age/the year, and the person who's the focus of the drabble.

OH THE RISING OF THE SUN AND THE RUNNING OF THE DEER

Summary:
The Marauders act out a cheery favourite carol. (Christmas 1980.)

Characters: Lily, James, Sirius, Remus, Peter, baby Harry

Words: 100

Notes: This drabble (yes, it’s precisely 100 words if you don’t count the interspersed lyrics!) was inspired by [livejournal.com profile] author_by_night’s prompt of “Christmas Carol: The Holly and the Ivy” at the [livejournal.com profile] rt_morelove Stocking Filler Exchange, but then I just couldn’t seem to get this to be about Remus and Tonks – it insisted on being the Marauders instead. So, it's here, not there.

I kind of think this ought to be a picture, but I can’t draw, so it’s a drabble instead. If it’s songfic for a medieval Christmas carol, is it still songfic?

THE GREAT GUEST LIST

Summary:


"So then I got to thinking, who else can I invite to my party who would make my mother have a fit? Moony's perfect already, because no one likes werewolves."

"Oh, thanks," Remus said with dripping sarcasm.

"I mean no one except us, and we're the only ones who matter," Sirius replied impatiently.

Acknowledgements to:

...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.

AMONG THESE FIELDS OF GOLD


Summary:

"And someday we'll be coming here with your grandchildren, Prongs," Remus said, "and they'll all run round the field and you'll try to tell them stories about the old days and they'll be properly horrified to think their doddering elders ever even did young people things."

"Like this, you mean?" James asked and leaned over to give Lily a smacking kiss on the lips.

"Ewww!" Sirius moaned. "My eyes, Prongs! My eyes!"

"Or it will just be Sirius you horrify," Remus murmured, suppressing a smirk as Sirius tackled James.

(Set after OotP, but also in the Marauders era.)
