Summary: Christmas during Harry's fifth year -- Remus, Sirius, and a lot of early-morning laughter.
A/N: For [livejournal.com profile] musesfool who kept prodding me to write something like this ;). Refers back to events in Two Wizards, One Gift, and a Duck-Billed Platypus, so you may want to check that out if you haven't already. Feedback loved and adored, as usual, and perhaps even taken to the sales for a new pair of shoes.



Sirius scrunched up his face in consternation. There was a hand on his shoulder. There was a hand on his shoulder and someone was bloody shaking him and trying to wake him up and that meant he was likely going to have to kill someone.

He was fairly sure killing someone on Christmas morning buggered your luck for the whole coming year. Which figured – he was pretty much the founding member of the Society of the Bloody Fucked Before They Bloody Started.

“Sirius, come on, you’re still in your clothes.”

Who was this git, coming into his bedroom and touching his shoulder and shaking him when he was sleeping and adding insult to injury by bloody talking to him? “Bugroff,” he grumped.

“You’ll sleep far better if you’re not wearing those . . . oh heavens above, are those really mustard colored? . . . “

Merlin, the bastard wasn’t content with the shaking and the talking and the positively not letting him sleep – oh no . . . he felt the need to pass judgment on his bloody trousers. Was nothing sacred? What the bloody fuck was the bloody world coming to, and on Christmas bloody Day? “Bugroff,” he spat, rolling onto his back.

“I confess I’d imagined you’d be rather more pleased to see me than this,” said Remus.

Sirius blinked and squinted and generally tried to focus on the vague person-shaped shadow looming over him. “Remus,” he breathed as recognition bloomed, his face splitting into what he immediately knew had to be an utterly spectacular idiot grin.

“So you do remember me.” Remus sat on the edge of the bed and began to untie his shoelaces. “Had me worried for a second.”

Sirius stuck out his tongue. “S’not m’fault. S’middle of night.”

“Sadly so.”

“And I was sleeping.”

Remus nodded. “In your clothes.”

Sirius leered. “You want me naked?”

There was a huff of laughter as Remus stood again to undo the buckle of his belt. “I want to sleep myself, Padfoot, and would rather it wasn’t beside a man wearing the most frightening pair of corduroys I’ve ever had the misfortune to behold.”

“Flimsy ‘scuse.” Sirius pushed himself into a sitting position, swinging his legs over the side of the bed. “You want to seduce me, admit it, want to seduce me blind and stupid but don’t know how since you’ve never been good at it.”

“You’ve never given me a chance to deploy all I know,” Remus countered. “Hard to seduce a man who prides himself on being ready Now, Always and Forever. The art of persuasion is lost on you.”

Sirius frowned as he let his trousers fall to the floor. “Now, Always and Forever is a splendid motto and you should shut up.”

“Mmmhmmmm.” Appropriately disrobed, Remus lifted the covers on his side of the bed and slid beneath them. “I missed you.”

And wasn’t that just like Remus Lupin, to take the wind from a man’s sails right in the middle of a nice bit of banter, to stop him cold with something so simple and true that a bloke’s chest just ached with it? Sirius smiled, disarmed. “I missed you too.”

“I hear you’ve had a wild few days since I saw you last.”

And that was utterly Remus too, summing up catastrophe and upheaval in a handful of words and delivering them so lightly you could be forgiven for imagining he wasn’t worried. Sirius slipped under the chilly sheets and scooted close until they lay together, faces inches apart on one pillow. “Everything’s OK.”

“Really?”

“Really.”

Remus sighed and rolled over onto his back. “Russia was a disaster.”

“Russia’s always a disaster.”

“I was almost sure I wasn’t going to get back in time.”

“But you did.”

“And then to hear from Dumbledore about Arthur and Harry and . . . “

This line of thinking wasn’t going anywhere good. “You remember Harry’s first Christmas?” Sirius interrupted, propping himself up on one elbow.

There was a long, confused pause. “Of course.” Another. “Do you?”

It wasn’t an idle question – Azkaban had stripped away so much that Sirius’s memory was an inconsistent luxury. “I do. I think the tiny spleen-eating Muggle girls frightened even the Dementors.”

There was a tense moment before Remus accepted the comment in the spirit it was intended and started to laugh. “Oh God, your face that day . . . “

“They were going to dress me in plastic jewelry, Remus – clip-on earrings were in my future.”

“And a tiara . . . “

“Oh God, the tiara . . . “ Sirius grinned as Remus laughed helplessly beside him. It was such a rare thing to hear laughter unencumbered by regret or caution in this house, and he wished he could gather in the sound, hoard it away. “And you sir, with the kitten nose . . . ‘

Remus cackled. “You shit,” he managed.

Sirius laughed himself. “You stood there with such patience – God, what were you thinking? Had seven years at school with me taught you nothing?”

Remus took in a shuddering breath. “I don’t think I was thinking. I was undoubtedly concussed from that unfortunate Playdough accident.”

“Oh happy thought.”

“And you – you and your incredulous horror that Muggles knew about duck-billed platypi.”

“Platypi?”

“Well what else would they be? Platypusses?”

“Platypussies.”

A swift snort of laughter. “Far too harmless a name for such cunning creatures.”

“Cunni . . . “

“Shut up!”

Sirius laughed appreciatively, laying back against the pillow. “And Diagon Alley. Oh the jinxes that flew that day.”

“Potato masher hands.”

“Great googly eyeballs.”

“I’ve never seen so many Accio’s collide in one space before.”

“And who knew they would shower everyone with fuchsia sparkly bits when they did?”

Remus rolled over, burying his face against Sirius’s neck, shaking with laughter again. “But the tea-party,” he whispered. “Sirius you were playing tea-party with girls . . . “

Sirius laughed and wrapped his arms around him. Such a Christmas gift – to have him home and safe and laughing. “I love you,” he chuckled into the mop of hair against his jaw.

Remus lifted his head, smiling. “I love you too.” Such a strange but welcome feeling this – to be comforted by Sirius instead of being the one to offer comfort. Perhaps there was truth to the idea that this was a season of miracles. He shifted until he could steal a kiss.

Sirius made a low sound of appreciation when they finally broke apart. “Harry’s first was such a good Christmas,” he whispered.

“Think we can make another one? Harry’s . . . ”

”Don’t try to work it out, you’ll hurt something.”

“Will not.”

“His several-est.”

“His several-est Christmas?”

“Mmmhhhm.”

A long pause. “Whole legions of new words are needed to chart your particular insanity, you know that?”

“Of course.”

”So . . . “

Sirius grinned. “We have a house full of kids, Moony. Molly’ll be cooking, Arthur’s going to be fine, and you can trust I went entirely overboard on decorations . . . “ He paused, “It’ll be a great Christmas.”

Remus stifled a yawn and found Sirius’s hand with his own. “A pact then.”

Sirius smiled. “A pact.”

And in that clasp of callused hands, light was coaxed to flicker amid the darkness of Number Twelve, Grimmauld Place. “Well-loved,” murmured Remus, burrowing closer as he fell swiftly toward sleep.

“Well-loved, indeed,” Sirius replied, and closed his eyes upon a wave of rare contentment.

ach, but that's such a sweet way to put it. your remus ♥

“Russia’s always a disaster.”

your sirius ♥

someone was bloody shaking him and trying to wake him up and that meant he was likely going to have to kill someone.

i can sympathise

i would go on, but i'd probably end up posting your entire fic down here and say why i liked each bit, and given that this isn't a bloody english essay, i'm just going to stick with "SQUEEEE!!!!11!one" and leave it at that.

What a genuinely lovely comment! Thank you so much -- I always love knowing which lines worked for people the most.

I too can sympathize with Sirius wanting to stay asleep -- there's really nothing more annoying than being woken against your will. At least he had a little Remus lovin' on the other side of it :)

So glad you liked it!

I would pit five year-old, Barbie toting girls against Demontors any day. I think the power of the sparkly pink could bring them down (and surely this is the weapon the Order will use in book seven . . . )

Awww! Once again you've managed to make me smile! I love it when you write happy fics :)

I will indeed be writing more MWPP -- fifth year Marauders are my terrible weakness. In fact part of the reason the last few fics have strayed beyond it is because I'm working on a great behometh of a MWPP story with [livejournal.com profile] devkel and so it *feels* as if I'm writing nothing else ;)

So glad you enjoyed the happy!

God I love that line. I think someone else may have quoted it as well but it's such a great line.

It's fics like this that make me hate Rowling. How could she kill him when he's already been through so much? He deserved to be happy, the two of them together.

Great job. I think I'll add this to my memories.

And yeah -- it's heartbreaking to think of what's lurking around the corner for them. I'm holding off on any JKR hate for the moment, but should she harm a hair on Lupin's head in books 6 and 7? Then I'll be ready to take up my pitchfork :)

A delight as ever. :)

Now, Forever and Always is a fine, fine motto, it's true and the notion of Russia being a disaster made me giggle, mainly because I spent a month over there this summer. Their exchange in this entire story is hilarious and very well written.

But back to your writing; it was just wonderful. One of the great things about reading your stories is your character consistency; both between your stories and relative to the books themselves. Great stuff. :)

I'm so glad you liked the story -- thank you so much for the compliment about consistency. It's much easier for me to make Sirius consistent than Remus -- Sirius seems to have taken up permanent residence in some corner of my brain, nattering away. Remus is more reticent.

Now, Forever and Always seems like just the thing a post-Azkaban Sirius would grasp hold of with both hands -- I can't imagine him *ever* turning down sex again. Poor Remus and his untested seductive abilities :) (Although come to think of it, that would be a great story -- Remus *insisting* he get to prove his seductive technique, and Sirius just desperately wanting to get it on . . . )

Oh. lovely and cute and delightful as always. :)

I wanted to quote some of my favorite parts, but then I'd just end up quoting the entire thing, so I held off.

Except: Sirius really is the founder of Society of the Bloody Fucked Before They Bloody Started, isn't he? And Now, Always and Forever . . . HEE!! And Remus laughing. Oh, Remus . . .

I just loved how this was OotP set, and how it was still semi-lighthearted, even in the gloom that is that house, and he past.

Wonderful!

There is a desperate need for "Society of the Bloody Fucked Before They Bloody Started' tshirts (what's the acronym? SotBFBTBS? Yeah, that doesn't really roll off the tongue, does it?). These may become the gifts I distribute *next* holiday season.

I'm glad you enjoyed the light-heartedness -- because that part was bloody hard. They kept trying to veer off into sadness and tragedy and drove me batty in general. I'm glad it worked out in the end :)

This is just so sweet, and wonderful and as usual, the friendly, funny banter...

I had started picking quotes to use in this little comment, but they were too much. Your stories are way too 'quotable', and that's a very good thing.

Oh! So loverly. Made my night in fact.

First off because it is (god forbid) a HAPPY story during the OOtP era. The fandom is sorely lacking in them.

Second, because it fits seamlessly into canon. I assume you noticed that Remus was oddly absent from any and all proceedings between Harry's arrival at 12GP and Christmas day. It is my pet theory that Remus left the night Arthur was bitten (honestly, why else would Dumbledore send Phineas to ensure that the coast was clear in the middle of the night?) and returned Christmas day to surprise Sirius.

Third, And wasn’t that just like Remus Lupin, to take the wind from a man’s sails right in the middle of a nice bit of banter, to stop him cold with something so simple and true that a bloke’s chest just ached with it? Sirius smiled, disarmed. “I missed you too.” 'Nuff said.

Fourth, I'm so very glad that I have discovered your stories. You write with a delightful balance of humour and feeling that is a pleasure to read.

And I refuse to read this in the context of what is coming, as the bittersweet aftertaste may be too much for my puppy-shipping, dark-chocolate-loving heart to handle.

[identity profile] sheafrotherdon.livejournal.com on December 29th, 2004 02:19 pm (UTC)
So glad you liked it!

I went back and reread the Christmas chapters of OOTP a couple of times before writing it. You're right -- Remus is strangely absent throughout the whole Arthur incident, but then already back at No. 12 by the time Ron and Harry wake up on Christmas morning. And color me oblivious, but it was the first time I really paid attention to the fact that he and Sirius gave Harry a joint Christmas gift. And then I sat on my friend's couch just sort of gesturing vaguely to the world as if to say "SEE?"

I understand the not wanting to read it in light of what's coming as well -- the whole reason I write happy stories is because what's coming (be it 1981 or the veil) is just too heartbreaking to contemplate. So I like to live in the moments in between, most especially MWPP year five. Mmmm, good year ;)

I tend to stray into that angstiness, as well. You can't help it. It's like they BEG to be written that way! :)

They do beg for angst, don't they? Or at least a foreshadowing. But I'm going to do my very best to dwell in the land of 'years in which good things happened' because, dagnabbit, I like to think the pups had *some* happiness before everything went to hell. Twice over. ;)

Thank you for reading! I'm so glad you liked the stories.
