    Summary

    1985. Four years after the death of his friends, Remus decides to break out of the pattern of his post-war life and try living among Muggles. In a sleepy town in southern England and the bustling city of London, he tries to build a new life for himself, piece by piece. The more he sees of the Muggle world, the more Remus wonders if that structure is as stable as he would like to think it is.

    “The Survivor” is set in Thatcherite Britain, in the wake of the Falklands War and the onset of the British AIDS epidemic. It explores themes of disease, stigma, war trauma and grief, reflecting both on the historical context of the 1980s and Rowling’s characterisation of Remus Lupin.

    Summary

    “Moony,” James said after a moment, equally quiet. “There’s a difference between – what happens to you – and, y’know, crying a lot and shouting and eating weird food and everything.”

    “I know,” Remus said, forcing lightness into his tone. He looked up. Peter was staring at him, James looking on with concern, but Sirius’ grey eyes were fixed firmly on the ground. He straightened up, suddenly regretting saying anything at all. “Anyway,” he said firmly, eager to move on. “The question is what to do about the girls.”

    (In which James isn't Florence Nightingale, Sirius isn't avoiding Remus, and Remus is most certainly not Having Feelings about his best friend. He might, however, have accidentally become the de facto advisor for all things monthly in the castle.)

    Summary

    'Some say the world will end in fire, some say in ice. From what I've tasted of desire, I hold with those that favor fire. But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate to say that ice is also great and would suffice.' A thee part series of 'Twin Peaks' stories about the evolution of the relationship between Dale Cooper and Albert Rosenfield. The first is gen, the next is largely gen with hints at slash and the final part is a small slash coda.
