James, Sirius, Remus and Peter attend the 1980 Olympic Games.
"Is there anything you wish to tell me, Remus?"
This question haunted Remus Lupin throughout his schooldays at Hogwarts and the fifteen lost years that followed the deaths of James and Lily. Now, thirty-three years old and dogged by ache and emptiness, Remus finds this question once again at the lips of Albus Dumbledore. It forces him to remember, and condemns him to one more betrayal for the sake of cold, twisted bedsheets and the half-forgotten memory of black fur in moonlight.
Sometime's attraction sneaks up on you. What do you do when that attraction is to your best friend and it changes everything you thought you knew about yourself? What do you do when it means you are what you don't actually want to be? Remus and Sirius have always been outsiders in one way or another and now it seems they're different in this way too. This is a story about how one boy copes with discovering his sexuality and how the other will deny it until he loses everything.
