    Summary

    Remus finds out a secret that James, Lily and Sirius have kept from him and they find out that he smokes. The friendship is tested but will it last?

     

    “The prank?” Sirius asked in confusion when he saw that neither James nor Lily understood either. “What prank?”
    “The prank that every group of friends pull,” Remus explained with a look of hope so small that it was almost invisible. “Every friend group seems to have a big prank. They pull on one person in the group and it almost breaks the friendship. This… this is the prank that I’ve read and heard about, right? That’s the only reason you would have kept something like this from me for so long...”
    “It’s not a prank,” James whispered.

    Summary

    Sirius get's given a wrong number, Remus definitely isn't being sarcastic, and they should probably agree to stay strangers...

    Rated M for a lot of language, some sexual content but nothing too explicit, mainly jokes/flirting.
    Any TWs should be listed at the start of chapter notes, please let me know if I ever miss anything, but this is a safe fic, bar some minor Walburga angst.

    Summary

    It’s simple really; if you want to extinguish a fire there are several ways to accomplish this. You can douse the flames with water, usually the simplest and most effective method. If you’re trying to limit damage to a person or thing you might smother the flames with dirt or a heavy blanket. Though the most effective way, if someone were to ask Bilbo’s opinion… which of course no one ever did, was to suffocate the flame. To draw out the vital oxygen which fuelled the flames until they ceased to exist. It was a particularly painful yet effective way to kill a spark but Bilbo knew it to be most effective.

    The other thing Bilbo Baggins knew, without a doubt, was that you could not fight a fire with even more fire.

    Some might argue that you could use strategic burning to control the spread of flames but it was not a guarantee that you would not end up with multiple fires or one overwhelming storm of flames on your hands. No, fight fire with yet more fire was a useless endeavour which is exactly what Bilbo told Gandalf the Grey when he delivered thirteen Dwarves and a mission to Slay a Fire Drake on his dining table one evening in some kind of sick joke.

    Summary

    Hobbits, being the smallest of the free races and less inclined toward violence, knew that they would be at great risk from dark or greedy forces. So, the Hobbit leaders banded together to create a plan. The plan was domestication. Let the other races think them like animals. Dogs, Cats, Birds and others have been cared for by the taller folk with only companionship and love as the exchange. So why not Hobbits as well? After all, what is more comfortable than having food, shelter and protection provided for you?

    For ages the Hobbits have been considered creatures of comfort. They are the most versatile animals in all of Middle Earth. They can cook, sew, clean, be trained to guard livestock or even read small words. They are great judges of character and once one has been chosen as their family they instantly achieve positive social status. Most importantly though, Hobbits are the greatest companions that love unconditionally.

    And Thorin will find one for his nephews if its the last thing he'll do.
