Excerpt:
Remus gave a hollow, humourless chuckle.

"Is something funny?" his boyfriend asked irritably.

"A bit," said Remus. "Pomfrey thinks I'm pregnant."

Sirius stilled. "That's not funny."

"No, I suppose it's not."

"Are you?"

Remus looked down at his feet, dangling over the lake. "Yeah."

I am delighted to announce that Trans*Figured now has its own page on my website! Upon the advice of the incomparable [personal profile] themessrs, who has my undying gratitude, I have expanded Part II by ... er ... 3000 words. Meep! Looks like this is going to be another one of those stories that gets away from me. Enjoy!

Part I * Part II

Note: I've been feeling recently that there is an under-representation of trans* characters in fanworks. Which is to say, I've never encountered one. This story is my attempt to improve trans* visibility in HP fanfic. I acknowledge that there are probably as many ways to be trans* as there are trans* people in the world, and I know that this story will probably not ring true with everyone's experiences, but hopefully I haven't made too much of a mess of things. I apologise in advance for any problematic elements that may have sneaked into the story in spite of my best intentions. I encourage everyone to check out Not Your Mom's Trans 101. It contains some great advice on being an effective and compassionate trans* ally.

He could not really remember what it had been like, Before. He had been too young. Sometimes he wished he could recall what it had felt like to be whole -- to be himself -- but more and more as he grew older, he felt that knowing what he had lost would be too much to bear. Mostly, Remus Lupin just felt alone.

Making friends was difficult. His Special Circumstances made him awkward and self-conscious around other children. The secret locked inside him was too big and too complicated for him to explain in a way that they would understand. His parents loved him, and they did what they could to ease the path for him, but they did not always seem to know what to do with him, either. They researched spells and bought expensive potions that left Remus feeling sick and weak for days, but they could find nothing to reverse what had been done to him.

I didn't forget about Tuesday this time; I was just sitting on this post until I had something to give you guys. So here's the news of the week:

1) PDF ebook of the original 2005 version of Padfoot's Tale in all its cringe-worthy glory!

2) PDF ebook of Highland Fling! This is a newly-edited version, with a few small changes, including a short scene added to the end of Chapter One. It may be a cheesy romance, but this is easily one of the stories I am proudest of. (NOTE: New versions of Ch 4-11 are not up on the website yet. Coming soon!) Up now!

3) Last but certainly not least, NEW FIC! Allow me to present an itty-bitty, fluffy sequel to Highland Fling, which I just wrote this morning:

Excerpt:
His Aunt Fiona raised her eyebrows. "And how's it goin' wi' your laddie?"

Remus blushed and looked away. "I dinna ken. I think maybe I was wrong aboot him."

"The wa' he was lookin' at ye last night?" His aunt chuckled. "He couldna keep his een off ye! Nay, he fancies ye, right enough."

Excerpt:
He could tell right away that the third whiskey was something special. The aroma was completely different from that of the previous two, and when he brought it to his lips, the smooth, smoky flavor was like nothing he had ever tasted before. It sang in his throat without any of the burn the other liquor had carried.

When he lowered the glass, Remus was watching him. "Well?"

Sirius nodded. "It's good."

"Aye, it is."

Remus raised his own glass, closing his eyes and savoring the whiskey in his mouth for a long moment before swallowing. His tongue darted out to collect a drop that lingered on his lower lip, and Sirius realized he was staring again. He quickly buried his nose in his own glass before Remus could notice. If he didn't stop doing that, the other man might start to think he was gay, too, when really he was only a bit tipsy, and happened to be enjoying Remus's company.

"Auntie Fiona likes a bit o' help wi' the tourists, but honestly, I was just needin' to get away for a bit."

Sirius raised his glass in salute to the idea. "Right there with you. Do they not want you to do Geology or something?" He had warred long and hard with his own parents over his decision to minor in a "useless" subject like Art History.

"Nay, they were fine aboot the course," said Remus slowly. "It was more the other thing. Me wantin' to shag blokes. They dinna think much o' that."

This is mostly for [livejournal.com profile] _jenc_, who offered to Scotpick for me, but you know how I like to share. It's the start of a non-magic, present-day R/S romance that began its life as a piece of original fiction (with different character names, obviously, though they were always Remus and Sirius in my head) that was going to be submitted to an online contest for romance novels to be published as e-books, but I never got around to submitting it. As much as anything else, it's intended to be a love letter from me to Scotland, which I miss rather desperately. This is all there is at the moment, but it's something I'm planning to get back to once I finish ACOC, Year Two.

Excerpt:
"Thought you'd be here," said the brown-haired boy. "Can I talk to you?"

Sirius nodded, and Remus slumped down the wall beside him, staring straight ahead. There was a moment's awkwardness before Sirius realised he was being less than sociable, and passed the joint to Remus. As Remus took a deep drag, Sirius cleared his throat, knowing that he owed it to Remus to admit his guilt before the other boy began leveling accusations at him.

"Sorry," he mumbled, eyes fixed on his hands. "So sorry. Was an awful thing to do. And I know you're not queer."

He held his breath, waiting to see what Remus would make of his apology. Remus had come to him, after all, he slowly realised, and it didn't seem a very Remus-like thing to do -- to smoke the last of his grass and then tell him to fuck off. So maybe --

Excerpt:
"Remus?" he ventured a whisper.

Slowly, Remus's head turned toward him, staring brown eyes fixed on his face, but he did not seem to register Sirius's presence at all.

"Remus, go to the loo or something," he begged. "Get out of here."

Remus did not so much as blink.

Tentatively, Sirius reached over to lay a hand on his wrist. "Remus --"

The boy reacted to the touch as if burned. He stood up so fast his chair overturned, and bolted from the classroom.

Excerpt:
Sirius closed his eyes and thought of Remus, pushing away the memory of their conversation as if it had been only another bad dream -- Remus as he was now: sixteen and gangly, honey-brown hair falling into wary brown eyes, the long, straight nose, the full curve of a mouth only rarely visited by laughter --

With a huff of annoyance, Sirius turned over, shaking off the image as guilt squirmed in his guts. He shouldn't be thinking of Remus like that, either. That ripe, full mouth was triply off limits now. Remus was straight and he was a roommate and he had already suffered more than enough unwanted advances for one lifetime. Sirius had no right to think such things about him.

He's a friend, he told himself irritably. Not like James, but he could be someday if you'd just stop thinking stupid thoughts about him.

Excerpt:
Remus was hanging halfway out the open window, breathing in the cold, misty night air in deep ragged gasps. Sirius approached him somewhat warily. Remus was trembling, and Sirius did not think it was from cold.

"You all right?"

"Don't -- don't touch me," Remus gasped.

"I won't," promised Sirius.

Remus closed his eyes, took a couple more deep breaths, and drew his head back into the room. He turned and slid down the wall until he sat on the floor, his forehead resting on his drawn-up knees. Sirius sat down beside him uncertainly. For a long moment, neither boy spoke.

Remus broke the silence first. His voice was rough and muffled against the fabric of his pyjama-clad knees. "They think those bloody pills will help," he said bitterly. "What the fuck do they know?"

James rounded on him. "Be careful, mate," he said in a low, earnest voice. "You know he's not like that."

"I'm sure I don't know what you're talking about," Sirius told him with as much indifference as he could muster.

"Don't give me that," said James, scowling. "I saw the way you were looking at him just now Get over it. Fast. He doesn't know you like I do, but he's bound to notice sooner or later if you keep making eyes at him. We don't need that kind of drama."

Excerpt:
"Want a toke?" Sirius held out the half-finished joint.

Lupin stared at it for a moment, then shrugged and took it, dragging deeply on it. He didn't cough.

Maybe not such a swot after all, thought Sirius, observing the other boy beneath lowered lashes.

Lupin leaned back against the chapel wall, hair falling into his eyes, his lips pursed around the little roll of paper. Sirius realised he was staring, and quickly looked away.

Casting about for something to talk about that didn't involve Lupin's mouth, Sirius remembered the reason he had wanted to talk to him in the first place. "What're the pills for?"

"Nothing that this doesn't work a lot better on," said Lupin, passing the joint back. "That's decent stuff. Aren't you worried about getting caught, though?"

Author's Note: Written for the [livejournal.com profile] rs_games 2010. This was a bit of a change for me. I don't usually do first person narrative, but Sirius wanted to tell you this story in his own words. For someone who hates confrontation almost as much as Remus does, I find it surprisingly easy to write snarky, angry dialogue. Lord, how I've missed writing porn!


Excerpt:
It seems like everything is moving away from me these days. Father and Regulus are dead. We hardly ever see Andromeda and her family anymore. Peter's too busy looking after his sick mother to keep in touch. There's still James, obviously, but he's got Lily and Harry to think of now. Even the Aurors decided they didn't want me, because apparently loving you and working in law enforcement was a "conflict of interests".

I could live with all that. Sure, I'd growl and rage and shake my fist at the sky, but so long as I still had you, I could grit my teeth and get through anything the world threw at us. But if I'm losing you, too, then what have I got left, Moony? What's the point of me? Of everything I've ever done? What is there left to fight for?

Excerpt:
"Are you jealous, Padfoot?" The bastard sounded amused.

"No," Sirius said too quickly. "Why? Should I be?"

A little huffing laugh tickled his ear. "He's not planning to steal me from you, if that's what you're worried about. If you hadn't been so busy noticing him noticing me, you might've noticed him noticing you, too. Not that I could blame him."

That gave Sirius pause. "He was?"

"Mm-hmm. He wants both of us. Together."

For those of you who don't know, I started writing this story over three years ago. I most sincerely apologise for how long it has taken me to get to the end of it. I am finishing it today as a birthday present to my betrothed, the wonderful [livejournal.com profile] chiv, who has been pestering me to get it done for almost as long as we have been together.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, [livejournal.com profile] chiv!

I've drawn threads from a lot of my other fics into the last few chapters, but I hope it all makes sense. The epilogue especially ended up having a lot more to do with Harry and Remus than the Weasley twins, but it's fanfic, and I go where it takes me. If it was an original story for publication, I might have been more vigilant about the focus. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the results.

It's done! My Power of Two spinoff, which was only supposed to be three chapters, is *finally* done! Yay! For those of you who care and have been keeping track, I've done an edit of all the previous chapters, tweaking some things and adjusting the dialogue to keep everyone a little more in character. I hope you enjoy the results. I really enjoyed writing this.

Title: The Night Before - Trapped (8/8)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] pica_scribit
Rating: PG-13 for the Cruciatus curse and mentioned rape
Warning: Hermione makes a bad decision under stressful emotional circumstances. This decision has proved very unpopular with Ron/Hermione fans, but I am not writing a fluffy romance here. People screw up sometimes, even with regard to those they love. Especially teenagers.
Word Count: 1502
Genre: Drama
Characters: Ron, Voldemort, Travers, various Death Eaters, Draco
Pairings: Ron/Hermione, Fenrir/Draco
Synopsis: Circumstances force Ron and Draco to a reluctant sympathy. AU diverging from canon at the end of OotP.
Timeline: June 1998
Disclaimer: I am not J. K. Rowling. I own nothing. Please don't sue me.
Author's Note: This is the first time I've ever written Draco. I enjoyed how snarky he was. The Night Before is a series of oneshots in which the whereabouts of various characters on the eve of the final battle are explored. It is a spinoff from The Power of Two, Ch. 11. Feedback is my drug of choice. Please report any errors or inconsistencies.

Excerpt:
"Lost your girlfriend, have you, Weasley?"

The head tilted back and a pale face seemed to glow in the darkness. Draco Malfoy. Ron's eyes had adjusted enough to see his reddened eyes and white channels left by tears in the grime of his face. He reeked of weeks of incarceration and something else Ron thought might be fear.
