Hiya! I'm here for the forums 12 days of reviewing challenge, reading stories with 0 reviews. I picked yours because I'm trying to read more Marauders these days (I've never been into them before) - good shout, because I really liked this heartbreaking little window into Remus and Sirius' lives. Am I right in thinking this is set around the time of Goblet of Fire, their first christmas together after being reunited?

It's so sad to think about how the Marauders were torn apart by the war, even sadder to think that Remus and Sirius were only reunited for two years at the most before Sirius was killed, swiftly followed by Remus. Especially sad considering Remus, by this point, had been outed as a werewolf, and Sirius was still on the run from the Ministry - they never got to live their lives to the fullest. Considering that, this line was extra poignant: Yes, even in his most beastly, animalistic moments, humanity had held a sad place in the back of his mind...Itís funny how he could always save himself from his other half. Or perhaps, in light of how Sirius had kept his sanity in Azkaban, not so strange after all, but human nature. It reminded me how hard both of them fought in their short lives for the freedom of both themselves and the ones they loved, and how they struggled right to the very end. In fact, this one-shot was full of feels. Feels, I tells ya.

I liked how the story came full circle as well, starting with the two occupied armchairs by the fire and ending with Remus contemplating Sirius' empty seat, reflecting their fates. This did seem like more of a drabble-y moment than a full story, as such, but it was a beautifully sad look into their lives. It didn't seem overtly slash-y, but I did get hints of it in Sirius' "I just Ė always thought you'd know it wasnít me, couldn't be me." remark. I wish Kreacher hadn't been so, y'know, Kreacher, otherwise Remus could have cleared the air over that one.

Beautiful! Thank you for sharing this with us :) merry belated christmas and a happy new year! ♥
