Ch. # Chapter Title Word Count Reviews
1 Here

She looks just like Adeline, Remus thought as he watched the girl with long, blonde hair skip into his classroom.

2 Death Eaters

Remus glanced at Lily, who looked absolutely terrified. How anyone could think that Muggle-borns such as Lily did not have the right to learn magic was completely ridiculous. Lily was far more clever than half the purebloods at Hogwarts.

3 New Recruits

“Mr. Lupin, could you come see me, please,” Banks shouted over the commotion. “I'll give you a pass to your next class.”

Remus sighed and turned around. Every single defense professor had called him to speak with them after the first class. Surely his classmates were getting suspicious by now.

4 Letters

“Lupin,” Bulstrode growled, blocking Remus's exit. “How's the leg?”

“Get out of the way,” Remus said.

“I don't think so. Because of you I've got a week of detention,” Bulstrode said. “What do you say I get your other leg, just to make things even?”

“I said, move!” Remus shouted.

5 Appointments

“It's today, Moony,” Sirius anguished the morning of the nineteenth. “Today! And I haven't even figured out what I'm going to say!”

“I imagine you'll just answer the questions they give you,” Remus said as he shoved his Transfiguration book into his bag.

“But the answers determine my whole future as an Auror, or even if I'll have one!” Sirius exclaimed. “Merlin, I don't even know what to wear!”

6 Patronuses

The class soon gave way to excited chatter. Most of the excitement was over what forms the patronuses would take. James, Sirius, and Peter already knew what their patronuses would be due to the fact that patronuses were almost always the same form as one's animagus form. Remus was fairly certain what his would be as well.

7 Dementors

“What was that about?” James asked.

“I think Alice has something in her past that she hasn't told us about,” Remus said quietly.

“She didn't pass out but she started crying so hard that Banks had to cast his own patronus. Alice couldn't even do it,” Sirius said.

8 Extra Lessons

“We know for sure that Bulstrode is one of them,” Remus said quietly. “And Crabbe's in training.”

“Snape is one,” James said. “I'd bet anything.”

“They can't do much from inside the castle,” Peter pointed out.

“Except recruit new ones,” Sirius said. “I wish my brother wouldn't hang out with them.”

9 Dates

“Hello, Remus Lupin.”

Remus turned to see Addy coming from the direction of the Three Broomsticks. She smiled at him and sat down, wrapping her scarf around her neck. They'd known each other for over a month now and she still always called Remus Lupin instead of just Remus, but Remus didn't mind.

“Hi, Addy,” Remus greeted her. “Enjoying the day?”

10 Attacks

“Did you hear that?” Remus asked suddenly. He set down his fork and strained to listen. He could've sworn he heard something that sounded a bit like thunder, but almost like an explosion at the same time.

“Hear what?” Peter asked. “I didn't hear anything.” The rest of the group shook their heads.

“Guess I was hearing things,” Remus muttered and went back to his dinner. But as soon as he took a bite of chicken, he heard it again. A loud, exploding noise. “There it is again.”

11 Fear


“Ah, Remus, James, Lily, come in,” Dumbledore said as he gestured to a few squashy armchairs that sat in front of his desk.

Remus looked at James, who shrugged, and the three sat down in the armchairs while Dumbledore took the high back chair behind his desk.

“Don't worry, you haven't missed the meeting,” Dumbledore began. “I simply told you to arrive fifteen minutes before the others as I have a matter to discuss with the three of you first.”

12 Normal

“Isn't the Ravenclaw common room quiet?” Remus asked. He'd always imagined it was, given that most Ravenclaws studied a lot.

Addy burst out laughing. “Oh, no! Most of the time there's a few experiments going on and sometimes they explode, and they always get a lot of attention so it gets quite loud. I'd guess that the Gryffindor common room is really loud.”

13 Corporeal

“Do you think my brother's a Death Eater?”

Remus's mouth fell open and he stopped walking, causing Sirius to do the same. Sirius never talked about Regulus and when someone else brought up the subject, he immediately insisted that his brother was not a Death Eater. What brought this on, Remus wondered.

“Like right now?” Remus asked.

Sirius sighed and started walking again. “Not now. After he graduates. Is he a Death Eater in training, I mean.”

14 Just Ask

“Hey, Remus.” Sirius poked Remus in the side, jolting him out of his full moon on Christmas woes.

Remus glanced up and saw that Sirius was nodding over to the Ravenclaw table, where Addy was watching him. She saw him look and smiled, then quickly turned back around.

“She likes you,” Sirius said with a grin. “Hogsmeade next Saturday.”

15 A Real Date

“What made you want to fight? I don't think I'd have the courage.”

Remus shrugged. “I don't know. Sirius wanted to and I guess I felt useful fighting, like I could do something to stop what's happening.”

“But you don't want to become an Auror. Sirius does.”

16 Lunar Christmas

“We're just going to have to talk to him,” Mr. Lupin said. Remus heard the familiar stomp of his father's feet walking across the kitchen floor. His father was very heavy footed, unlike his mother's soft footsteps.

“It's going to upset him,” Mrs. Lupin replied. “I hate upsetting him, especially near the full moon.”

“Then we'll wait until after. But it's almost second term. He has to figure something out.”

17 Other Options

“Andromeda?” Sirius asked. “Well, she eloped with a Muggleborn Hufflepuff and got herself blasted off the family tree.”

“And they all got married around the same time?” James asked faintly.

“Within three years of each other,” Sirius said with a grin.

“Oh, dear God,” James whispered.

18 Hope

“Quiet down!” McGonagall shouted. “Today I'd like you to continue practicing human transfiguration. Partner up and by the end of the class I expect you all to look vastly different than you do now. Nose shape, hair color, hair length, eye color, the like. Use your imaginations.”

“This could be fun,” Sirius said with a grin. “Moony? Partners?”

“Sure,” Remus said. “You can go first.”

19 Hogsmeade

“But do I bring her anything?” Remus asked.

“Bring her flowers,” James said. “Girls like flowers, and they're not complicated to conjure. Watch.” James pulled out his wand and muttered a spell. A beautiful bouquet of lilies emerged from his wand. “See?”

20 Okay

“The world needs as many Aurors as possible,” Remus continued. “Don't wreck it trying to get revenge for me. It's not the first time anyone's ever called me half-breed scum, and it won't be the last-”

“But, Moony-”

“Prongs,” Remus cut him off. “I said it's fine.”

21 Alphard

“Sirius, mate, is that...” James's voice trailed off as he nodded to a very large, very black owl flying toward the Gryffindor table.

Remus glanced up and watched the owl. It was the biggest owl he'd ever seen in his life, and one that he hadn't seen in years. This owl belonged to Sirius's parents.

“Damn,” Sirius muttered. “Wonder what's prompted this.”

22 Questions

"Do I have to tell her? For moral reasons?”

“I don't know, mate,” James said quietly. “There isn't exactly a handbook, is there?”

“A handbook for werewolf relationships? No, not exactly. Still, I don't know what to do.”

3,734 2
23 Personal

Remus heard a tapping at the window and turned around to see what it was. An owl was perched just outside, a letter clasped in its beak. “Are any of you expecting any post?” he asked as he opened the window.

“Nope,” Sirius said as the owl flew inside.

“That's my mum's owl,” Peter said, setting down his quill.

24 Death

Still, they said nothing. Their walk was quiet and solitary, despite the fact that they walked together. All three were lost in their own thoughts, and while they were most likely thinking the same things, it was better for their thoughts to remain thoughts.

25 Skill and Luck

“Peter,” James muttered, standing up. “I can't take it anymore. We've got to do something.”

“We can't do anything,” Sirius pointed out.

“We can try,” James said. “Come on. He's probably still laying around in bed. We've got to make him talk.”

3,467 2
26 Shattered

ames shut the door after them and then turned to Remus. “Bulstrode and Crabbe have fled the grounds.”

Remus felt his jaw drop. “Wait, what?”

“Lily and I saw them. They walked right out the front doors and ran into the forest. I can only assume they Disapparated from there. And since they're both of age, I didn't bother to stop them.”

27 Bittersweet Moon

It's going to be our last one, isn't it?” Sirius mused.

“Last what?” James asked.

“Sunday,” Sirius said. “Our last one.”

“Oh, right,” James said. “That's weird.”

28 The Order of the Phoenix

“What about the Ministry?” James asked. “Sirius and I are set to become Aurors.”

“And we need Aurors,” Dumbledore said. “Right now we have Alastor and one other Auror. But it does come at a risk. The Ministry does not oppose our efforts, but there is always the chance that they could tell their Aurors they aren't allowed to participate or face a sacking. It is up to you.”

29 Break

“Remus,” Banks said, looking up at him, “you are my favorite student.”

Remus raised his eyebrows in shock. He knew from the beginning of the year that Banks had taken a certain interest in his future, but he always thought Sirius or James was Banks's favorite.

3,340 4
30 Somewhere

“Luna...” Remus began.

“Professor?” Luna asked quietly, stepping inside. “What are you doing?”

“Packing,” Remus said. “I'm afraid I couldn't defy the curse.”

“But it's not really cursed!” Luna exclaimed. “Not really. It's just a rumor. You told me that.”
